“relax and enjoy the view”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My family and i spent a week at lenikos resort last August. The apartment was comfortable with a living room with sofa, fireplace, not needed in summer of course, and a large balcony overlooking the bay. There was a separate double bedroom and an upstair bedroom with 2 single beds. there was a smaller balcony upstairs,too. the kitchen was smaller, equipped with fridge,oven, microwave, toaster, boiler and coffeemaker. no dishwasher. dining outside was really relaxing; we never had breakfast on the verandah as we're not early birds and at 10 it was too hot to enjoy your coffee in the sun. air co was ok, but needed only for the living room/upstairs bedroom. there are 3 nice swimmingpool and new comfortable sundeck chairs.it takes 10 minutes to drive to the village/beach but a car is a must. the lady who owns/runs the resort is helpfull and kind (offering some homemade sweets,too)

My wife and I stayed for a week on July. The apartment is large and very comfortable.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of (including the kitchen sink (-:).
Oven, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine, stove, iron….all brand new.
Also very good AC which is not so common in Crete.
The property is located up on a side of a mountain overlooking the beautiful Galini bay.
Drinks on the balcony at sunset time are a real pleasure Although it can get windy at times.
Breakfast is homemade, different every morning. Large and fresh.
The real deal are the owners, a sweet couple always smiling and always caring.
The village is only 5 Min. drive downhill, full of good places to eat and drink.

Room Tip: all rooms face the bay. all have privet door and parking.

This is a new property, ten minutes from town center, with a fine view from the hills over the sea. The rooms are excellent, as is the varied breakfast (albeit served in a small, rather hot room). The owners are very accommodating.

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!
