We stayed in another hotel but visited their Eden Spa twice. Some of the staff were kind but some seemed grumpy and unsatisfied with their job. I don’t know why I went back. Both of the times the staff had misunderstandings and at the second time person who was supposed to do my eyelashes, kept taking new customers before me even though my appointment was already late. There are so many spas to choose from so I don’t recommend theirs.

Dear Madam, The director of the spa has already replied to your review you wrote on Galini Eden Spa in google and for one more time she replies you that your review seems not to be original as the last time we coloured eyelashes was 1 month ago.Our staff work with pleasure and very hard in order to offer treatments to our numerous clients who great honour for us want to have their treatments only in Eden Spa. With kind regards Eden Spa

We’re having such an awful experience at this hotel which is such a disappointment after waiting 2 years to get away. Totally mid-sold! This hotel is far from a 5 star hotel as advertised, it’s 2-3 at most. The whole place is dated and desperately needing repair and as for being adults only that’s just a blatant lie! Kids everywhere, including whole groups of them walking along the backs of the sofas as you’re trying to sit there in the bar area whilst the staff look on. The bar area resembles an airport departure lounge, plastic sofas and grumpy staff and the inclusive drinks were all pretty horrid, even the the cocktails were warm and just tipped out of some pre-made containers. The whole place was full of Germans and their kids so of course all the sun beds were reserved with towels from the crack of dawn despite supposed rules that weren’t to. We booked this place as it was supposed to be adults only with 2 à la carte restaurants and a rooftop garden/bar, an on-site spa and amazing choice of food and drinks. None of this was true, both a la carte restaurants were closed as was the rooftop garden. The buffet restaurant was worse than a school canteen, the same cooked to death bland food daily, everything was tailored to German taste and again extremely grumpy staff. None of the German guests adhered to the Covid measures in the restaurant and the staff just went along with it. We’d paid extra for a top sea view room but apart from a nice view it was basic and full of things needing repairs or replacing. Even our wardrobe door had been removed, the tiny tv only had only a few foreign news channels only one was English and that mostly said no signal, even the remote was broken with no back. Our bathroom was floor to ceiling bright purple an interesting choice and due to all the kids and teenagers in the hotel I was kept awake all last night with them blasting music from their phones on their balcony whilst they smoked weed all night which wafted in our room and made ours stink. Quite frankly I can’t wait to leave and gutted we’re having to spend so much extra money eating and drinking out to get away from the place and find something edible. There’s nothing to do in the evening in the hotel so expect to go out a lot. Wouldn’t recommend at all, not at any price!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and for all of your notices. We would like to inform you that since 2020 our Hotel accept children. All travel agencies we have signed contract and also our website mention that we accept children . In our Hotel all the guests are welcome and really we don’t understand what your problem with the German people is. For your information we would like to inform you that this period the 99 % of our occupancy are Scandinavians and not Germans . About the a la cart restaurant are open till 30 September according our all-inclusive description. We follow the protocol for the covid 19. During your stay you never came to the reception to inform us about the mentioned issues in order to give us the opportunity to take care and to try to find a solution ( for example to provide you a more quieted room). We like also to assure you that we take all the reviews seriously as they help us to improve our service. We wish you all the best Manolis Malefioudakis Reservation Manager

Just returned from 12 nights at the Galini Sea View Hotel. We were so looking forward to a 5 star experience in an adults-only hotel. Unfortunately our experience did not live up to our expectations. There were positives .... cleanliness, quality and choice in buffet and helpfulness of most staff. However, for us the positives were few, and our thoughts/feedback are as follows:- There were many children in the hotel, most of whom were well behaved. The noisy, distressed ones however spoiled our experience at dinner and when relaxing around the pool. The pool area is far too small for the number of guests. Towels were used to reserve sunbeds every day which was against the hotel "rules". The restaurant was very busy and at times it was difficult to find a table. The staff worked very hard, but probably not enough of them at busy times. The food was of great quality, and lots of variety, but was a bit boring after 10 days or so. The a la carte restaurants were not open during our stay which was also disappointing. The food at the snack/pool bars was very limited - pizza, toasted sandwiches, fruit and cake. The quality of the "all inclusive" wine and spirits was poor, and the quality of the cocktails varied hugely depending on which bar you used and who made them. The beach was lovely, but the area was quite scruffy with lots of litter on the beach itself. Our room was very clean and the couple of issues with the shower, TV remote and request for extra pillows were sorted within 48 hours, on our second time of asking. Just a note ... our wardrobe did not have full length hanging space, which was a problem for my storing dresses. The room did not have an iron and ironing board, which one would expect as standard even in most budget hotels these days. We were able to borrow one from reception, but had to return it the following day. The TV in our room was probably the smallest TV I've ever seen, and only had 4 or 5 channels tuned in - one English speaking channel BBC World News had no sound. The fixtures and fittings of the rooms would benefit from being upgraded, as for the rest of the hotel amenities they were a little tired and tatty. Covd19 measures were very variable in the hotel. Few of the guests observed any precautions at all, and most of the staff wore their face masks like chin covers. I was "told off" by one of the bar staff for wearing my mask whilst moving around the communal hotel areas. The hotel is in a great location with lovely views of the sea, but the accommodation is sprawled down the hillside which is very steep - fine going down but tricky to get back up. There was however car or golf cart to take you back up the hill. In the evening there was nothing to do apart from drink in the main bar - no entertainment as advertised in the hotel's literature. For those considering this hotel I'd probably say the AI option is not good value, and that leaving the hotel to explore the surrounding area, especially Hania, and eating and drinking outside the hotel would be a better option. Crete is a beautiful Island, but I think there are probably better hotels to stay than the Galini Sea View.

Dear Joanna Naylor, Thank you for choosing our resort for your holiday and for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor. We respectfully acknowledge all feedback and rest assured that it is passed on to relevant departments as to provide an ongoing effort for the best possible service. I would like to take this opportunity to clear a couple of issues for our readers. Our a la carte restaurants are open until September 30 and is so stated on our official website. In addition our resort hosts 4 swimming pools and a beach area where our guests can comfortably relax and enjoy themselves. Our apologies on behalf of the staff member, we would have appreciated this having been mentioned at the Guest Relations or reception desk. Thanks again for your time, stay safe and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Warm regards, Sofia Konstantaki Guest Relations Officer

This hotel has an amazing view, the food is good (we went after September 30, so only had the buffet available). The only complaint we had was the front desk ... it went from amazing to disastrous. All in all, still a great place to stay.
