Customer holiday review – Galini Sea View, Crete

Alihoco holidaymaker Scott March travelled to Crete in early June with accommodation at the Galini Sea View Hotel in Agia Marina. As part of his holiday booking and being an all-round nice chap, he agreed answer some questions on his experience of the hotel.


Hi Scott, Thanks again for agreeing to answer a few questions about your recent holiday. How did you rate the overall experience at the Galini Sea Viewhotel?
My girlfriend Sarah and I were very impressed with the property and it was a great place to spend a week in the sun away from the rain at home during the Diamond Jubilee weekend. A special mention should go to the staff who were extremely helpful and ensured that guests were looked after at all times.

How did you rate the all-inclusive offering at the hotel?
Again we were very impressed. There was always a nice selection at breakfast and plenty of healthy options. There was also a wide variety and lunch time and lots of dishes cooked to order in the evenings. The pool bar was also very well run and the staff made sure that people were well looked after whether they were drinking alcohol or not!

Did you explore the local area?
We did make a visit to Chania Old Town on one day and this was well worth a visit. We visited the Old Harbour and it was very interesting because I was getting a little bored of the pool! It was easy to get around and we caught a bus which only cost a few Euro’s and took around 20 minutes each way.

Would you recommend the hotel to everyone?
I think the hotel would appeal to couples and families but it is a little bit isolated for those looking for a lively holiday. The sea view are a huge feature of the hotel but this also means that the area around the hotel is quite steep and could cause problems for people with mobility issues.

Would you visit again?
Definitely - but maybe in a few years.

Thanks Scott, you’ve been a star.
