“Very distinguished”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for a week as a point from which to tour the South. Probably the best place to stay in the South, and possibly in all of Crete. Perfect setting atop a hill overlooking the sea. The accommodations and grounds befit a 4-star lodging, though without the amenities of a full service resort. We were greeted with homemade baked goods and a liquor. Very convenient to the many southern sites and beaches, as well as to Rethymno in the North. We did not want to leave.

We stayed one night and enjoyed sitting on the balcony, having a glass of wine. The view down the valley looking towards the town of Agia Galini is beautiful. Staying out of town was not a problem for us as we had transport and its a short drive into town. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. The staff were pleasant and fed us so much for breakfast we had to say 'no more'. Accommodation is in separate villas which also gives you privacy.

This is a really great place for a relaxing vacation. Lots of space, nicely equipped kitchenette, beautiful terrace overlooking the countryside and ocean. There are three small pools and a playground for kids.

The location is perfect for peace, quiet and relaxation. You do need a car for access to restaurants, supermarkets, beach and other activities. The place is only a short drive from the Minoan sites at Phaestos (about 20 min) and Gortyn (about 45 min).

The people are really friendly and helpful. I would love to go back and stay a little longer next time.

We, couple in our late fifties from Germany, have spent one week in Lenikos Resort by end of September 2012. Lovely situated in the mountains near of Agia Galini (around 3 km distance) you have a fantastic view to the sea. And you will find absolute silence and rest here. The whole complex is very new, open last year and kitchen is complete equipped for self-catering. But you would miss the best breakfast we ever had in Greece: coffee or tea and juice (local product), different kinds of bread, home-made cake and cookies, cheese, sausage, every day another dish of egg, fresh fruits …. Everything very savoury and as much as can you eat!
Service is very heartily and hospitality is really coming from heart as it is usual in Greece! You can ask everything and will get a competent answer! Eva perfect speaks English so understanding is very easy.
Hygiene and cleanliness in apartments and pool are the rule.
We have been there in good hands and did feel safe and at home! So we only can recommend Lenikos Resort to anyone!

i stayed in lenikos for a whole month.
i know ag galini since 20 years and normally i stayed in the village what i always enjoyed.
this time i needed more space alone for myself and i decided to stay outside the village. so i found lenikos. the little villas or maisonettes are brand new and exclusively equipped: my villa had full kitchen, dish washer, washing machine, hair dryer, ironing facilities, tv, air condition, wifi, huge terrace etc etc.
i loved the place a lot.
the owners and the personnel were gorgeous, friendly and professional.
the resort is quiet and relaxing. three pools are available.
the most brilliant beaches not far away, the village and its restaurants, bars, friends close.
it was a pleasure staying at this place. i will always came back.

We went for a week at the end of July 2011.The hotel is brand new, fully equiped kitchen, nicely decorated but not adapted for young children especially the twin rooms located upstairs. Too dangerous. The breakfast is generally served in the flat unless you wish to take it in front of the reception and the pool. We were surprised that a 4* hotel would go and take away all the food uneaten, from your breakast , left in the frige. Very mean. The towels were changed just once during our week and the bed sheets weren't at all.The owners are rather unfriendly and even have rows in front of the guests.The day of departure you have to bear in mind that if you travel back after 12:00 you need to give back the keys and you'll have to leave your luggage in front of the pool and their mini reception area. If you decide to have a last swim or sunbath, you'll have to take your shower in front of the pool and other guests, as there's no other facilities indoor.

It's far away from the beach, restaurants, or shops so you need absolutely to rent a car. Agia Galini is the nearest pleasant resort with lots of restaurants but the beach is quite small.
Finaly don't rent your car via Cretan Traveler and a certain Marinkos from Agia Galini who needs urgently to change his old cars. They have no power, lots of miles and are dirty. If you do, then rent it for a day and go and shop around in Agia Galini, there're plenty of other places for car rentals.

Bel hôtel résidence, flambant neuf mais pas encore achevé. Eloigné de tous restaurants, magasins. Location de voiture impérative. Les responsables sont peu accueillants, voir mesquins pour un 4* car récupèrent dans le frigo les restes non consommés du petit-déjeuner.Les serviettes de bains ne sont changées qu'une seule fois dans la semaine et la réception est débordée au moment des départs car peu de place pour pouvoir gérer les départs et les arrivées et pas d'endroit pour se changer une fois les clés rendues. Ils nous ont fait payer le porte bouteilles du frigo qui s'est cassé, étonnant qu'ils ne soit pas asurés ou qu'il n'y ai pas d'état des lieux effectués.
