“Friendly, clean and great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Manolis was a wonderful host - really welcoming and helpful about day trips and distances. Nice restful place to stay with fabulous deserted beaches a driveable distance away. The hotel itself was very clean, peaceful and great value. A five minute amble to a good choice of restaurants but also nice and quiet. The beach iss't spectacular but it's quiet and not too touristy and right by the hotel. We are already thinking of going back. Great island, lovely people and this makes a really good base for exploring the untouristy western side of the island. Thank you Manolis for sorting out our stuck car window!

This is the perfect place for you if you are looking for peace, at an affordable cost. Away from racy nightlife, this hotel is tucked in the Northwest corner of crete, on a picturesque pebble beach. Manolis, the owner takes great pride in keeping his hotel absolutely clean. He makes guests feel at home, and gives excellent advise about nearby tavernas serving local food. I was touched when he took the trouble to come down at 6 AM to say goodbye to me and my family. The breakfast is adequate, for its price. The location is excellent to explore the Chiana province which has a lot to offer. A rented car is definitely desirable when staying here. I would recommend this place for families looking for a relaxed vacation.

We have just returned having booked to stay at this hotel for 2 nights and staying for a week!
The hotel is fantastically clean, and a lot of pride goes into the details and care of guests.
Manolis and the two Georges who run the hotel as a family concern were friendly and very helpful.
It's a great location - quiet and yet easy access to all the sights of western Crete .
There are lovely tavernas just a short stroll away. We ate at the Cellar and the food was delicious
We will definitely return - it felt like home.

This hotel is fabulous! This family owned hotel is second to none, their hospitatitly is outstanding and the attention to detail we thought was first class. This family prides themselves on offering the best service ever and cleanliness is paramount. Perfect location, easy access to beautiful beaches and towns. One thing that would make it more than perfect, although only a stones throw from the sea front, is a pool and pool bar for late afternoon relaxation. Breakfast is to die for!

I enjoyed my week at Galini Beach Hotel. The family and ladies from Georgia took good care of me. The breakfast was worth the money and each day I could tell what I wanted. I was there in a quiet period, so I dont know how it is when it is high season. But the welcoming atmosphere I loved it. The rooms are clean! I enjoyed my stay in Galini Beach hotel and I liked the quiet atmosphere of Kissamos.

Located just a short walk from the town Galini Beach lived up to its reputation, Manolis (the owner and his family) ensure a truly memorable stay, he himself is a true gentleman ensuring his guests are relaxed and happy throughout.. The rooms are modern and functional. A great base to return to and charge batteries each day after exploring the west coast of Crete.

Excellent ! We enjoyed our stay at the Galini Beach Hotel very much and would certainly return. It is a family owned and run hotel and they believe in personal service. The rooms are well-maintained and spotlessly clean and ours had a wonderful view of the bay. The breakfast is very good with lots of locally produced food personally served by Manolis, the owner. He is very proud of his hotel and nothing is too much trouble. He helped us with our car hire and phoned the company and sorted out the fine details. We were there on a walking holiday and his son helped us with suggestions for outings and printed off maps for us. On our departure, he gave us a gift of his home produced olive oil. It was a pleasure to stay there and we will certainly be paying many return visits !
