Hotel is all in all nice. Actually exclusively german holiday-makers, all a very good wire to owner Anke had. We were the youngest with 22 years... Friendliness of the staff, beauty of the location and surroundings, beach etc. (which very often praised) is, of course, everything was ok and available, but not so as it is if you by the comments here flashed is. Accordingly we were rather a bit disappointed on the first day (see afterwards as well). …  read hotel review

We have been coming to this hotel for 5 years and the main reason is because of the wonderful treatment by Anke and staff. It always feels like we are staying with really good friends. The sea view from our balcony is outstanding and each morning the breakfast is lovely. We love staying here and would never think of staying anywhere else in the village. We all were in tears when we had to leave!! read hotel review

After we felt really comfortable there twice - it was almost like staying with friends - we have decided to stay there again next year. Without TVs or other noise pollution, the hotel is wonderful for a relaxing holiday. Ideal as a starting point for hikes, the view from the window to the ocean is breathtaking, the surrounding restaurants are very cheap and recommendable. The hotel only serves breakfast, but this is extensive, wonderfully fresh and lovingly arranged. The hotel management is very attentive and makes sure that everyone feels comfortable. The two star category are for service and atmosphere ..., nothing else is considered or counts! read hotel review

The hotel is located on the hill between the beach and the old village center with all different shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was absolutely clean, simple but nicely furnished and cosy. The owner and staff are very friendly, provide helpfull tips on what to do around the area. The owner is quite sociable but not intrusive. Overall, she was a very good host and we felt very comfortable in the Hotel Galini Mare. Breakfast is simple but of good quality. We often stayed on after the breakfast at the big wooden tables just to relax and to watch ... other tourists walk their way down to the beach with us sitting in the shadow of an old lime tree. This is definitely a great place to be and I can recommend the village Agia Galini and the Hotel Galini Mare to anyone seeking a carefree and relaxed week on Crete. read hotel review

The hotel Galini Mare is a small but fine hotel. All rooms of the hotel are nicely decorated. We especially want to the cleanliness of the hotel emphasize. Verpflegungstechnisch the hotel offers only breakfast, this is however generous and good. The guests of the hotels come mainly from the german-speaking countries and of all age groups, from the retired couple to young couples, everything was there, what a very nice atmosphere the result. read hotel review

    The hotel is very centrally located but still quiet location in the lovely village of agia galini. The clean and well-kept beach (fine gravel) is easy within a 5 minutes' walk to reach. Right on the beach there are many recommendable taverns, in which one can eat well and favorably and what a beautiful view of the blue libyan sea. Within walking distance (3 minutes) is also the beautiful harbour of agia galini, which especially at night a great atmosphere. Around the harbor are likewise recommendable taverns, as well as cafes, bars and many small shops attached. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel (50 meters) is a small supermarket with a large selection.

    To foot one is from the hotel in 5 minutes to the nice small beach of agia galini. From september there is the beach chairs and umbrellas even free for the guests of the taverns (otherwise small fee).

    The service in the hotel Galini Mare is second to none. The german owner Anke worries together with its greek partner very lovingly and attentive to their guests. For example, already with the arrival of each individual with first name welcomes, whereby one still welcome as already feels. It is always ready for a joke and stops like rendezvous with the guests. Anke also had always goldwerte ready with advice regarding recommendable taverns, beaches and tourist attractions. Especially we were grateful, when they offered us directly online for the flight back to check. - Anke is really a soul of humans, the one into the heart to liquidate. About the room cleaning and the service at the breakfast buffet there is absolutely nothing to complain about: The rooms were daily spotless cleaned; the buffet was always plentiful and well presented.

    The rooms of the hotel are simple, but spotless - we could never a mote find. The size of the rooms is more than sufficient. We had the luck a room with a sea view booked. Wake up in the morning and from the depths of windows right on the strahlendblaue sea view was fantastic. Very recommendable room type!

  • Gastronomy

    The Galini Mare offers overnight accomodation with breakfast. The breakfast was for a 2 star hotel plentiful and very varied: daily different kinds of hot beverages (coffee, tea), orange juice, different sorts of cold meat and cheese, various jam and honey, different kinds of bread, cereals, greek yogurt, as well as daily changing fresh fruit. Breakfast can either be taken in the breakfast room or under the lime trees in the beautiful mediterranean garden with sea view. The atmosphere with the breakfast was always very relaxed after some days one knows the most of the guests and develop informal causeries. All in all, very pleasant, with the anonymous atmosphere of a small hotel with not to compare!
