A friend of mine and I ended up in Greece to end our adrenaline fueled week and I chose Galaxy as the place to stay at. Not realizing that it is certainly a couples island and the majority of people were honeymooners or couples on holidays. Ooops! None the less, the hotel and the staff didn't mind at all.
It's located in Imerovigli, which is a 10 Euro ride to Fira. Close enough to walk if you are so inclined, but it would take you a solid 40 minutes. All the hotels along that area have power cables that obstruct the view. It takes a little careful planning, but you can take some great photos if you have the angles right.
That being said, the hotel itself is located on a cliff, so expect stairs - Ladies - this means the heels should come off at the top of the stairs - Seriously. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast in the morning was outstanding. You could choose to have breakfast in your room, outside your room or up by the pool. The food that you can get in addition to the breakfast, was always prepared fresh by the staff and it was consistently awesome.
Speaking of the staff..... they were outstanding. Catered to our every request without a second thought. Remembered every guests names and were all around spectacular.
I know there are myriads of other choices on the island, but this one was the right amount of money, perfect distance from the hussle of Fira, amazing views and staff that were legitimately sad when you leave. Stay here. Book this hotel and say hi to the staff for me.
Miss you all!! xo
