“Best value for money in Agia Galini”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

The only drawback of this hotel is that we stayed only 1 night :) The owner is very nice, the rooms are as clean as they could be and the breakfast is made of local products. We had a good night sleep. Excellent value for money, we would stay again there!

The hotel Glaros is a beautiful hotel, well kept, professionally managed (but still with a very personal touch) and it has the best breakfast buffet we ever experienced in Crete over the last years. The standard room we had was on the fifth floor, overseeing Agia Galini and the seaside. The rooms are of a clear design and always perfectly clean. We can only recommend the hotel Glaros and we definately would always come back!

Glaros hotel is such a nice place to stay ! As from the moment you check in, you feel the very warm hospitality of Anastasia and the other people working there. Very cosy rooms, cleaned every day, nice furniture, big terraces. Small swimming pool and pool area where you can relax all day. Breakfast (inside and outside) with house made goodies. Staying in Glaros has become a tradition.

We bartered hard at the end of the season and managed to get a room for 35 Euros with breakfast for two. A bargain
Excellent clean rooms, excellent breakfast, lovely pool.
Lovely staff.
Would stay again!

We have spend one night stay over there end place was really nice. Every thing was nice and new (recently renovated). Even that the season was nearlly finished the place was great. We were two couples and we both had two rooms overlooking the pool. There were only some small negatives about the room that the owners have to have a look. All four of us found the pillows a bit uncomfortable to sleep with so i dont think that one or two pillows extra will add up to the cost. In both rooms the fridge was a bit noisy so we had to unplagg it. For last but not least is the price 40€ without breakfast we all thought it was a bit two much for this time of the season!!! At any other time of the season we were willing to pay even more...
Anyway we would all of us definatelly recommend Glaros Hotel for your stay in Agia Galini !!!

We stayed for 4 nights in September and wish it could have been longer. We were offered an alternate room on arrival, which was bigger but up more steps, but it was well worth it. The rooms were cleaned every day, and whilst basic, very comfortable and spacious. The pool was just perfect with a 4 year old as she had her own shallow section, and whilst the pool area is not large, it was perfectly serviceable. We loved Agia Galini, there is a "shabby chic" to the town and walking through the alleyways at night with their many al fresco restaurants was great. The beach may not be perfect, but with a small child it was ideal as there was no road, rather restaurants and a boardwalk running along behind the beach. We visited Matala beach and Phaistos during out stayed and these were great outings. Overall loved it, and would return to Glaros in an instant.

Room Tip: The rooms higher up have a better view of course, but more stairs!

The Glaros hotel is - at first site - not situated in the best spot of Agia Galini. Thera are hotels with better views. But I suspect there are not many better hotels around. This hotel is an absolute gem! Elegant, stylish, clean, cozy, great service ... Very friendly people!
We picked Agia Galini not because we wanted an ideal venture point to visit the Minoan sites around Phaestos. We ended up getting so much more! First of all, let me just comment on what the tourist guides have to say about Agia Galini: it has supposedly sacrificed its pristine charm for mass tourism. Well, at the end of September this was not the case. The village is still charming yet the sea-front is obviously attracting lots of tourists. So what? The local beach is nothing special but hey, you've got great beaches near-by.
Anyway, the hotel sports nice breakfast (lots of sweets, but also lots of fruit and delicious Greek youghurt so it is healthy enough), and when we came back from our daily trips, the room was spotless every day with fresh towels and fresh linen. The service is truely great! The owner is a charming lady running this business with lots of class.
The pool is not really big, but that's just OK - a dip in it felt good anyway. The rooms are very roomy, modern and elegant and enjoy lots of sun all day. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: I bet all the rooms are great. Ours was.
