5 Star
Galini Palace is a hotel with a potential for luxury level and top-notch services, however, some guests felt that it is not yet up to par with a five-star rating. The hotel is new, clean and nicely decorated with side views of the mountains, sea and pool. The hotel staff is discreet and professional and the housekeeping services are exceptional. Although the food quality and selection are average for a hotel claiming five stars and the pool snack options are limited, the hotel has quality catering. The major downside is the lack of dessert options in an all-inclusive hotel, which was disappointing. Some guests felt that the hotel was not worth the money they paid and that the hotel lacked a five-star experience. However, Galini Palace is a good option for families with children who intend to relax and enjoy the pool. If the hotel improves the areas of concern, it has the potential to be truly amazing.

Outdoor Pool
The Galini Palace boasts an exceptional pool area with a beautiful design and lovely swim-up pool. Guests can relax on comfortable sun loungers by the pool. While some guests mentioned uneven concrete in the area and a dirty pool, overall the main pool is superb with gentle slopes and pleasant access to the water. The Californian pool is also incredible with good temperature water. The hotel is located on a hillside consisting of three big units - the main building, two wings with rooms and the pool area. It is an ideal location for travelers looking for a beautiful hotel with a magnificent pool.

Luxury
Galini Palace is a lovely hotel that offers potential for a luxurious stay. The lobby, restaurant and pool area are modern and elegant, while also being clean and stylish. Although some guests felt the hotel wasn't quite up to 5-star level, it still offers brand new facilities and beautiful designs. While the price could be lower, there is still value to be found here. This hotel is particularly great for families with children who want to relax by the pool. Overall, Galini Palace is a good 3-star experience that is comfortable and has many amenities, but may not quite live up to a 5-star rating.
