Had a wicked time at the Galini! This was the second time we've been there and it's still class! The staff are polite and the only time they take the piss is when you take the piss! I guarantee that if you go to galini and stick to their rules , you will have no problems! Anna is still legendary and christos is possibly the scariest but nicest man in crete! Respect to Dave, the rep- OH CAROLINA hahaha. Looking forward to getting my ass back to malia next year for malia 07

"wikid holiday"
     

Reviewed: August 19. 2006
the whole holiday was wikid! cant fault it! everyone warned us that the noise would b rediculous and we woudnt b able to sleep when we eventually stumbled into bed. the first night we arrived we thought they were right as a group of guys from galini were shoutin around the pool, but after that they couldnt have been more wrong. although we were no more then 2 mins away from the strip we coudnt hear any noise from our rooms. the people we met there were great too! the kingston, scottland and milwall lot!
it is true tho that they try and take your money for anything, if u jump in the pool after hours it is 50 euros! if u dnt have the right chairs left on ur balcony before u leave its 30 euros per chair! but the security guard, Christoph, was great, even tho he was always pissed off!
only been bak a day and i miss it already! the rule is that u cnt take ppl bk to ur rooms in the night or christoph will fine you, but he is at the 24 hr bar most of the time drinking so that would b no problem!
would recomend it to anyone!

galini is the best place 2 stay in malia! but really only because of the people that were stayin there when we were. its reallllly close 2 the strip, and before we went every1 was warning about the noise but there wasnt ne, we were staying near the pool so we were that close 2 the bar, but no1 that we knew that was staying near the front complained about the noise either. the rep dave isnt that helpful, as r airconditioning wasnt working and we told him sooo many times but we still had 2 wait like 4 days before he sorted it! the bar woman anna is a legend but the owner is a d!ckhead! we miss every1 loads n realllly wanna go bk! xxx

Reviewed: August 15. 2006
The Galini is in a wicked location, you are basically on the strip and the beach. 24 hour bar right next door so when you stumble back you get straight back on it! The people there are quality, met some quality lads and birds. The owners are complete stains, fuckin moaning about noise and other bollocks. Lairy security guard, but if your going just wind him up!

LETS ALL PISS OFF CHRISTOPH La la la laaa

No regrets for the hol, only thing bit gutted about is not gettin contact details for people so if your about gis a shout.

"Shocking resort"
     

Reviewed: August 12. 2006
In terms of location, its the best as its 5minutes from the beach and 2 mins from the main strip. Apart from that the galini is the most corruptest place ever. With the owners demanding unbelievable amounts of money as in 1000 euros for stupid petty things, Half the time we got the blame for things we didnt actually do. It ended up with them kicking us aout of the resort unless we payed up 500 euros, so we decided to leave the resort and go. however they wouldn't give us our passports untill we payed them 50 euro each. The owners are shocking and will try and scam you for money and if you do go in a group of young lads, get prepared for fines being kicked out. For a resort which is meant to accomodate young lads and girls, its run as though you are on a school trip with rules and regs being made up all the time.

will fine you for tiny little things, will throw you out for tiny little things, wont let you take girls back to your apartment. didnt actualy stay ther myself but my m8s did and i was there with them most of the time, so i witnessed alot of the events that occured. all they want is money. they fine you ridiculous amounts of cash for pety things. wuldnt even give them their passports back until they all payed 50euros. appart from that, its a nice place, nice pool, nice women, good location. but wuld not recommend to young lads lookin for a wiked holiday coz it ruined ours.

The Galini is not a good place to stay if you are looking for a trouble free holiday. It’s so close to the main strip which often means trouble will come to you even if you are doing you best to stay out of it. The owner of the Galini is a crook and gives all Greek people a bad name, he will charge you silly amounts of money the smallest things. We where also even bad advices twice from are Kosmar rep Dave and when my friend seriously hurt his leg Dave and Kosmar couldn’t careless and didn’t offer any help or advice. The Galini will also will fine if you attempt to take someone back to your room after a goodnight out which I found very stupid considering that’s one of the main reasons you go to malia…

"dirty greek winkers"
     

Reviewed: August 12. 2006
This hotel is a gud place to go if you don't mind being mugged of by a manager hu is a dirty greek winker and will do wat ever he can to make money out of you. We discovered this wen 1 of my friends decided to take two WKD's from the 24hr bar which is only open for 20hrs (9am-5am). My mate was caught in the bar area and was told we had to pay a 1000 euro fine for the drinks or leave. We decided to leave and upon asking for our passports back the next mornin we were told we had to pay 400 euros for them or the police wud be called down. You are also not allowed to bring girls back to the hotel and if you do u will find youself facing a 50 euro fine which u also have to pay for goin in the pool after 8.30.
The speakers around the pool come on at 9.00 every mornin and they are always on the highest setting. As a result of this u r lucky to sleep thru this and when most nights u dont get in till 7 in the mornin u end up gettin little or no sleep.
However the girls at galini were all stunnin and the hotel was only a five minute walk away from the beach.

If you are a group of lads or girls finkin of goin to galini studios i would stongly advise u not to unless you dont mind paying extortionate fines for nothing and jus generally being mugged of by a little greek tw*t.
