“fantastic experiance”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is fantastic, the room size is perfect, and with AC and WIFI. The view from the rooms are fantastic and with sea view
The pool area is great, with a bar that includes everything, pool is nice and great size for a swim too cool off. The pool area also includes a basketball court and a volleyball net.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

My husband, I and 54 family and friend members visited Galini in 2010 and stayed at Neos Ikaros upon recommendation from a friend. Galini is a very traditional and non commercial place and the hotel reflects that, you are not coming somewhere that offers a 5 star all inclusive facilities and those of you who've travelled to Greece before know that that is the charm of Crete / Greece and thank god for that , as Agia Galini is Beautiful, rustic and traditional and the Ikaros is spotlessly clean ,Air conditioned, and cleaned daily and
most of all the staff who are all family as its family run cannot do enough for you, The supermarket is virtually opposite hotel within 1 minute and hotel is in an ideal location. Ii have read other comments stating hotel is miles away from everything howeverbthis is certainly not the case in fact its a 10 minute stroll into village and 15 to far end of the beach , it is a nice walk with quiet roads lined with shops and very safe as no taxis or motorbikes around. There is no need to walk down to the beach if you dont feel like as the pool area is very pleasant and pool bar serves Breakfast lunch and snacks including nice homemade Burgers all reasonable priced for the days you just want to sunbathe. we have travelled all over and never been made so welcome anywhere. It was everyone's first visit when we went in 2010 and no one was disappointed Panos and His wife Iris helped to make our wedding ceremony at the hotel very memorable and the whole stay for everyone enjoyable My husband and I are returning for the third time this year and like many others we've met whilst there we will always return to this lovely place.

NEOS IKAROS was recommended by a friend of the owner. Always trust a friend. What a great place to stay. Big enough (clean) rooms, good size bathroom, airco, free internet. Friendly staff and owners. Nice swimming pool to cool down. The village and its restaurants and beach are in walking distance. Good places to eat (locals go there too) are Faros (fish), Onar and Costas.
Don't expect a big breakfast but it is more than enough after a late diner the night before.
So of you want to relax, don't hesitate, just book it. It,s worth every euro, dollar, pound etc..

My husband and family have been coming to gallini and the Neos Ikaros hotel for over 13 years now. We gave travelled there for weddings...my brother in law and best friend were married in gallini. the Neos Ikaros hotel is an absolutely fabulous hotel and the staff are first class. We have watched panos( the owner) s two girls grow up and consider the family as friends. the hotel is absolutely spotless, rooms are large ,with air on and free wi if . the pool is fab with jacuzzi and a lovely swimming pool for the children , there is also a child's playground and basketball court. the breakfast is a traditional continental in style but if you want something more you can always ask Manos to make you a full English or a toasty!!! all the food is cooked fresh on the premises, and my personal favourite is the home made beef burger and the home made Raki!!!! In gallini itself there is an abundance of Greek restaurants and bars...not a burger king or McDonald's in site!! Bliss!! A perfect location to chill and enjoy traditional Greek hospitality , food and to watch the world go by...No rush ,no problem. When you visit Gallini ,it is almost impossible To leave...Choose gallini and The Neos Ikaros hotel.. You will NOT be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms are fab and the views from the top are superb. You can see all way to the sea.....

We've been to many hotels on a number of different Greek Islands and the Neos Ikaros is probably the worst we've stayed in. It has all the charm and ambience of the average Travelodge!
It's clean and modern but has zero atmosphere. The pool is quite nice but the pool bar is extremely limited in terms of drinks and food - and it closes early evening. After that there is nothing else to do at the hotel - there is a bar in the hotel but again very limited and, unsurprisingly we never saw anyone in there. Quite often there wasn't even anyone serving. In fact there seems to be only about two staff in the hotel.
Breakfast was abysmal - very little choice of food, the orange juice was more like Happy Shopper squash and the coffee was of similar quality.
The Hotel is about as far from the beach as you can get in Agia Galini.
Agia Galini itself is quite nice - narrow cobbled streets with lots of shops, restaurants and tavernas - a bit reminiscent of Lindos on Rhodes.
Just to prove we're not just sad, moaning whingers you should perhaps read our assessment of the Sunrise Apartments in Koutouloufari.

Agia Galini is a very pleasant little town on the southern coast with lots of bars and cafes in the harbour and then round a coastal walk there is a beach with more restaurants. The hotel is a short walk from the centre. The hotel was functional and the rooms spacious with balconies but the family service is a bit offhand - one day there was no room cleaning which if we had known would not have been a problem but was a surprise. Breakfast was a bit limited for choice. There is a swimming pool, children's play area and parking.There is also a reasonable laundry close by. So the hotel was OK but not as characterful as other hotels we stayed at in Crete, however, we are not sure if there is anything better in Agia Galini and since the town is worth staying in for a few days the hotel has to be recommended. The owners have a great white friendly english bulldog!!

This is the second year at this hotal and for sure next year will be our third. Nothing other to say but perfect, the rooms are great with working aircon fridge and tv and WI-FI but in limited locations, the views are great as is the service. Breakfast is not really worth the hasle so we just missed it and took fresh food from bakers. Plenty of parking for your car/bike... Swimming pool is clean big and perfect... A little walk to the village but downhill all the way and the walk back uphill is also perfect since you don't need to rush.
