My boyfriend and I have just come back from a 2 week stay at this hotel and we had a brilliant time. Admittedly, it wasn't the hotel we had booked and we had some reservations about being placed there mainly due to some dodgy reviews on here and the photos on line aren't great. So we were very happy when we arrived. We were half board and the meals are good, lots of variety and Mo the chef is great... our highlight is Ari in the Pool side barman. This man made our holiday, seriously he is ace. The nights we spent sipping his cocktails and home made raki (wow) were full of laughter and fun. Luckily all the hotel staff, especially Lucy, Malika, Manolis and Mo were equally fun and helpful and made our staff better than we'd anticipated.

The area itself is nice, although most of the local tavernas have closed down due to the all-inclusive packages being offered by all the hotels... hence our nights with Ari! The beaches are lovely, warm sea and crystal clear. There is also a nice walk to Hersonissos along the coast line which has more beautiful beaches and things to explore.

The waterparks are pretty fun, not usually my thing but is was a good day out and well worth a visit. There are lots of excursions and things to see and do, getting a snorkel was our best move, we even got to see an octopus!

All in all I would definitely recommend The Galini and when we stayed 20th Sept - 4th Oct the weather was in the high 20's and into the 30's some days.

Go, stay and see for yourself... this hotel is great value for money, friendly and relaxed. The entire place was super clean and I would be more than happy to visit again.

Thanks Galini.

Myself,my husband & 9 year old son stayed here for 2 weeks - August 2012. On our arrival(late in the evening) we were welcomed by the assistant manageress Elenora, given a breakdown of our all inclusive package & shown to our room along with 3 plates of cold cuts as we had missed dinner. We spent the first 4 days relaxing by the pool, plenty of sun loungers & the all inclusive package (local beer,wine,raki & soft drinks/water) runs from 11am - 11pm after which drinks need to be paid for & ice cream is available by the pool from 2-4pm each day which our son was more than happy with. All the staff - reception, dining room, kitchen,pool bar & maids were more than helpful & frendly at all times. Wifi is available in the reception area only but then we are on holiday not working so this was not an issue for us!! Air conditioning is available n the room at an additional cost (very reasonable & considering the temp essential too!!) The continental style buffet at mealtimes was varied & very enjoyable with fresh salad & fresh fruit available at every meal. We grew particularly fond of the pool bar staff - Lucy during the day & Aris at night who were both always friendly,chatty & let our son help him behind the bar which he absolutely loved - We would recommend Hotel Galini & highlight what good value for money the all inclusive package is. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday - Thank you so very much!!!

Room Tip: If you prefer a quieter room request one away from the pool as the hotel bar does not shut until qui...

My young son and I, had our hotel booking cancelled and rearranged at extremely short notice to Hotel Galini. I read the reviews and I was very concerned. Once we arrived, all my concerns went out the window! Hotel Galini is clean,pleasant and welcoming. There is nothing wrong with the food, there were no mouldy towels and the staff were not rude or arrogant whatsoever. In fact, the staff were friendly and helpful, always willing to go the extra mile to make your stay as nice as possible.The assistant manageress, Eleonora is a credit to Hotel Galini, bending over backwards to accomodate the requirements of the guests. I would definately stay here again and hope to return in 2013 with my husband. Thankyou Eleonora!

I stayed at the Galini in June this year it is a mainly family run hotel. Nice and quite when we were there and staff coud not have been more helpful. HarryPotter bar man is so nice and great at mixing cocktails. His Papa was very nice and very hardworking also. Hotel clean and comfortable. Made to feel very welcome. Elenora ,Staz and the young bar lady all very helpful.
Food a little repetitive but pleasant and never felt rushed by anyone ,My husband did not get up for breakfast on a few mornings so Restaurant Manager insisted I take him a breakfast tray up.
Poolside and jacuzzi very nice as clean and well managed best bit for me was the fact we did not have to endure an animation team! We go on holiday to relax and read,swim,stitch in general do all we want to not be harrassed into keep fit routines,volley ball other games. If we wanted that we would go to a bootcamp.Close enough to beach if you like a wander. Met some really lovely people here and will remember them when I drink cocktails in future. all in all really chilled experience.
