“Good location, rooms are OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Villa Galini is located very close to the beautiful beach and the old town of Lindos can be reached by foot in max. 5 minutes. The contact was very friendly and we did get immediate reply. The rooms are OK, but you'll find cheaper and better accomodation for staying in Lindos. The beds were very uncomfortable ...

Dear Guests,

We would like to thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experiences in public.

In the same building of Villa Galini there was one more studio, for low budget and with a double bed. I think this studio was better choice for your case.
But your booking request at the end of June was for the large studio with the two single beds.

Also, as the owner have told me you did not pay all the balance of your reservation (5 days). This happens for first time from season 2005! It was a little unfair, from a young couple who is visiting Lindos and Rhodes for first time, especially for high season period like August.

Anyway, we always trying to do everything we can for our quests.
We will try to be better from your review and we will replace the two single beds with a new large double one.

Thank you for choosing Villa Galini for your vacation.
Kind regards,
Villa Galini Lindos

I have no hesitations to recommend Villa Galini. I have read all comments given here on tripadvisor and confirm that they all reflect the truth. Mr PPDP the owner is a star ! We could really experience a genuine will to give customers a first class service. Nothing was too much trouble for him and his wife and we felt that we were treated almost as family. We will certainly go back . Our opinion also on the Island is that Lindos is the better place to be. Visit Monolithos and Thiarri and leave Rodos on the last day just before you fly back...

We had to make late changes to our holiday dates, and Panos managed the process really well for us. Our enquiries always received a speedy response, and were offered suitable options and solutions. The villa is in a tranquil, peaceful setting, within well kept gardens and each appartment has it's own private and secluded patio area with excellent garden furniture. Inside the appartments are traditionally furnished, and well equipped - plenty of kitchen equipment; storage space etc. Bathrooms are of luxury standard and with plentiful hot water supplies. The appartments are in very good condition and are regularly cleaned to a high standard. The owners provide a hands-on customer orientated service. I will be returning to Villa Gallini and wouldn't hesitate in making a recommendation to friends.

From the moment we read about Villa Galini - our e-mails with Panos we have had the best experience ever ! Panos was so fast at replying to our mails and endless questions ! Antonis met us at the airport and drove us the 45 minutes to Villa Galini. It is really 50 steps from the beach ! Beautiful, huge gardens and beautiful patios. Our friends stayed in the appartment above and every effort was made to make us feel welcome and at home. The location is stunning - amazing views - beach within 1 minute - and the Lindos village 8 minutes walk. We stayed 11 days and had the best family holiday we have ever had ! The appartments are perfect for families ( our children age 9 and 11 ) and for couples - 2 lovely couples stayed at the same time ... I cannot thank Panos and Antonis enough - and if New Zealand was not so very far away we would return every year .... if anyone reading this is thinking if they should stay at Villa Galini - yes, yes YES !

My husband and I stayed in Villa Galini May 2012. Having been to Lindos many times and usually stay in the Hotels just outside of the village (Memories, Aqua Grande, Lindos Blu) this year we decided we wanted to be in the village without the routine of Hotel life! Villa Galini exceeded our expectations and we will definately be returning. From our first enquiry to getting back home Panos (owners son) responded to every email almost immediately. We were met at the airport by the owner (Antonis) and on arrival had been upgraded to Apt No 3. This apartment was excellent, clean, spacious, great fridge/freezer, good aircon everything you needed. Bottled water, tea, coffee, etc provided on arrival which was much appreciated. The roof terrace with comfortable sunbeds and the best view was brilliant for sunbathing. When you lost the sun in the evening we simply moved to the balcony at the front and enjoyed a G&T whilst watching people trek up from the beach and the sun go down. The gardens are stunning and whilst you are 2mins from the beach and only a short stroll into bustling Lindos, Galini is very private and so peaceful. With Apricots in the garden which Antonis told us to help ourselves to - how good is that! To our suprise Antonis contacted us during the week and offered to take us back to the airport as he happened to be in Lindos that morning! What more can you ask for! We had a lovely holiday and will definately be returning to Villa Galini. Yammas

This was our first trip to Rhodes. A family member recommended to stay to Lindos and especially to Villa Galini, so we selected it without second thought. I have to say we were not disappointed. From our perspective Villa Galini is excellent in all aspects.
The view from the villa is amazing. Great location next to the beach, not far away from the main centre of Lindos. Ideal place for calm and relaxing vacations. Not forget to mention the owners how polite, friendly and warm they were. Especially many thanks to Antonios (the owner) who offered to transfer us from the airport to the
