My husband and I had our first holiday at the Galaxy in Sept/Oct 2001, went back there again this year and have already booked for next year. Yes the hotel is remote, but that is what it says in the brochure. It is only a 20-30 muinute walk to Argostoli or Lassi, and there are taxis! Those who complain about being charged for a phone call to order a taxi are such cheap skates. Would they offer their phone to all and sundry throughout the season? The cost soon mounts up. Yes there is no air-conditioning or fridges, but once again the brochure does say it is basic! George and Anna who run the hotel are the most friendly of people. Daisy is wonderful. It is the most fantastic place for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Bar prices may be a bit steeper than those in a Taverna, however, what do we pay for drinks in this country in hotels compared to pubs. I think 5 euros for a greek measure of spirits (about 3.26) is very reasonable. Those who complain really ought to learn to read the brochure properly, and if they want better facilities, they need to put their hands a bit deeper in their pockets!
We have been to several of the Greek islands any many beaches and this has to be my absolute favourite. The waters are calm and crystal clear and are great for snorkelling. Last year i spent time following an octopus and this year saw a sea slug. Swimming with the shoals of fish is a real experience. The beach does shelve offvery quickly and it is advisable to wear some form of footwear due to the pebbles. Facilities are great. Will definitely be back next year!
