I know Kostas and Bridget well. In fact I was swimming with Kostas on the beach yesterday. They are open and will not let anyone down. The sunbather referred to earlier was their daughter, Athina, who has now gone back to Athens. Bridget arrives early July. Kostas has poor English, but it is probably better than my, and your Greek. If you have booked there, don't worry, be happy.

Don't worry - Be happy , says it all Dai.

But the sunbather I spoke to was a male guest. (if , that is , you refer to my little visit to Galini yesterday)

We must all make sure, and stress, that any bad reviews , spoken of in earlier postings, DO NOT refer to Galini. Many Postings can go off topic and then can easily be misread.

Galini should be on anyone's shortlist as a place to spend your well earned rest from that nine to fiver everyday chore.

Cheers

Hi Neil, no the sunbather I was talking about was the one Truth posted about. As you say , get here and be happy, everyone else here is.

I try hard not to impose these days , but I have to say VERY CLEARLY that Galini IS NOT the subject of the bad reviews. It is absolutley perfect for those who want access to the centre but on their terms. Edge of village but less so than Tria. Wonderful clean pool, peace with a capital P. Good enough for Eggy? Sort of says it all. A wonderful part of Arillas.

If this thread is read thoroughly from the first post onwards, it is clear that Galini isn't the place with the bad reviews. I posted the accommodation link to the place that does, as it is being advertised on here. So I am unsure why anyone would get confused as to which is which?! :-)

It has been known that some posts , quite often, are not read from the beginning. Many Greek Taverna/Hotel owners quite often take a peek at the posts and could easily misunderstand.  (Speaking English well does not always mean they can read with the same expertise)

I could easily misread your post, Phil, where you say "Good enough for Eggy"
Does that mean Galini is good enough for me or does it mean that your post puts my concern at rest? - (Anyway know what yer mean)

Doesn't hurt to remind all, at this stage, the accommodation we were talking about.

I like Galini, it's kind of hidden away. Usually sneak off here when I get the chance.

Thank you, Eggy for taking time out of your busy busy schedule (ha ha) to pop in for me, mind at rest!

I purposely did not name the accommodation I had booked last year as it has nothing to do with this Forum and I'm sorry if this has resulted in confusion.  I will now leave this thread in case I cause any more mishaps, old grannie that I am!

Thanks for all the replies.

Nothing is a problem but, in the past, I have met a few local owners who tend not to get the full picture.
 I have a few examples which I will happily tell to those who ask me.

None of us should lose sleep over it. - And.... Forum Members never fall out , just hug n kiss a bit more (Unless it's Phil!! - but I do shake his hand)
Galini and Eleni/Stella are still on my "To Do" list. I just have to get the timing right and catch the owners for some extra info.

Both places looking good. I NEED A HOLIDAY!!!

Edge of village but less so than Tria.

Sorry - a bit confused here. I thought that the Galini was on the corner , just a bit further up ( going away from the beach) from the bakery, so a bit closer to the village centre than the Tria. Am I thinking of the wrong place?

Sorry Anne - you have placed it exactly. I meant that it is less far out than Tria, so you are exactly right - a bit closer to the centre.

Best wishes
Phil

Always go past the Galini on our walk into the village and think what a nice place it looks.  Will definitely pop in there this year and see if we can view the appartments.  This time it will be a walk up as we are staying at Irene's luxury appartments.

Hi Cheryl.

We stayed at the galini about 8 years ago and we had a fantastic time. The rooms are great as is the pool. Handy for the bakery and not that far to walk to the beach. You will love it. xx
