Agia Galini again and again

Great value for money. Cleaners came every day to replace sheets and towels. Breakfast included in the price and offered plenty of choices. Pool was fantastic and clean. Friendly staff. Good location. Parking spaces on-site. Only downside was a lack of WiFi in the room, however, good WiFi in reception area and at the pool. Also, extra charges applied for air con (€5/day) and fridge (€2/day). We would definitely return here.

A very good compromise on location and price

The Petra Hotel is about 150-200 yards out of the center of town, up the hill on the busy road out of town. But that's not really a problem; it's easy to walk down into the town. Our room was spacious, pleasant, and newly renovated. Strangely, however, the hotel charges for air conditioning (5 Euros/night), the use of the refrigerator (2 Euros/night), and the use of the safe (1 Euro/night). I have never in all my travels been asked to pay for air conditioning or to use an in-room refrigerator. The hotel is amateurish in general; I recommend they professionalize and just raise their rates by 5 Euros in the summer. There was a mediocre continental breakfast. They did not serve "English breakfast" as advertised.

Hotel Petra

The hotel was to the usual Grreek standards. The air conditioning system dripped water in the room, when I reported this they said they would fix it, of course this was not done during my 3 day stay. The staff were friendly.
