“Lovely hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stayed there for 4 nights, it's a quiet and calm family run hotel, with extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere! The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean, with amazing sea view! The owner and his family are really nice and friendly people, always willing to help and provide information. One of the things that we enjoyed the most was the breakfast - not only because it was tasty (delicious pancakes!), but also because it was served on a terrace right in front of the sea - the perfect start of the day. The view is just fantastic - the bay and mountains, what more do you need? :)
Hotel is located about 5 minutes from the center of Kissamos, taverns and restaurants, but at the same time far from crowded touristy hotels. The beach is nice, there are umbrellas and sunbeds provided, the place is also in close distance to main attractions, like Falassarna or Balos beach.
We are a couple that prefers calm and peaceful atmosphere, and that is what we found at this hotel. Next time we will for sure choose it again!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We spent 6 nights at a sea view double room in this family run hotel, and it was okay overall. The hotel is very clean, quite, and the bed is very comfortable, because they carefully add a soft bed-topper to it.

The downside is the beach outside hotel is too rocky to walk on. Breakfast is another horrible thing - it offers 'salty' and 'sweet' breakfast for you to choose from. however, the only difference between 'salty' and 'sweet' is simply eggs vs. pancakes. The rest of the things come with breakfast are all deadly sweet, and they didn't bother to change their breakfast menu and so we stopped using this service. Towels are old and hard, nearly like sand papers.

Galini Beach was really a "peacefulness" hotel...very kindly staff, delicious breakfast, cleany room, wonderful view.
According to other review it was an excelent choice, near to town centre and easy to major interesting site (city and beaches).
Already recommended to friends and acquaintances.

I stayed here for one week in May with my sister, who had been here before and recommended it very highly. I loved it! Everyone, without exception, was so warm, welcoming and helpful. Everywhere was pristine, the breakfasts were delicious and I can't wait to go back. I was so comfortable I am considering returning alone, which is a first for me!

Nice, quiet hotel with very friendly staff. Rooms are simple but clean. Unfortunately no safety box in rooms. Its located 10 - 15 minutes walk from town centre and taverns. Beach in Kissamos is not very impressive but driving to Balos, Falasarna or Elafonisi takes 1 hour or less. Good place to stay for exploring south part of Crete.

Galini Beach hotel has an excellent family staff. Our room was very clean with nice big balcony with side view of the ocean and afternoon sun as we had requested. The seafront restaurants are about a 5-7 minute walk away. The town centre is about 10 minutes walk. The beach is a bit stony but the hotel provides chairs and umbrellas. Excellent place to stay.

I was so glad I hadn't booked a hotel in Chania. My week at the lovely Galini Beach Hotel was all I wanted it to be. Wonderful family always on hand to give advice on buses etc (if you haven't got the nerve to drive on the right). Sure they haven't got a pool but that is ok the sea is on your doorstep, and hurrah a quiet no kids screaming place to sit. Yummy breakfasts with home made jam etc. If you want to experience busy you just need to get the bus (9.50 Euros for a return) into Chania, look around the old harbour area which is lovely. Comfy, clean, safe, layback. What more do you want? Oh Internet access if you must. Thanks to all at Galini, hope to see you again. Oh lovely restaurant "The Cellar" just a few minutes walk away as the hotel just does breakfast. Jill B April 2014

Room Tip: Facing the sea was windy but a lovely view from the balcony.
