“Galeana Apartments,Platanias, Rethymnon, a Cretan Gem”
Reviewed 29 June 2009

We traveled to Crete, with Monarch, and had booked into the Galeana Apartments in Platanias on the eastern side of Rethymnon.
it was a hectic one hour drive to the premises from Rethymnon Airport in our hire car, The Old road runs parallel to the main motorway on the north coast of Crete, It was pleasantly situated on the beach side of the Old road with enough parking outside for 6 cars. (plenty of free parking nearby).
The complex consists of 48 apartments in total , 3 three rooms, 18 two room and 26 1 bedroom aparments.
Ours was an adequate sized 1 room one, It had twin beds, a loo and a SMALL shower, a kitchen area with 2 hot plates and an eating area with table and two chairs. Fitted wardrobe basic other furniture and AIR Conditioning.
The whole complex is painted in a typical Greek style of Blue and White. It was basic and charming.It was well located for the tourist sites. The apartments are used by Monarch/Cosmos from the U.K. and our nieghbours were Germans and Russians.
Two pools a beach bar and a covered dining area for our continental breakfast. 50 yards to the beach with a Floriferous planted avenue down the centre Very helpful staff, Maid service Daily. clean linen every 4 days, Great.!!
Plenty of supermarkets and places to eat. We had one shower in a 2 week stay. Would recommend it to anybody whom is used to the Greek style of living

Reviewed 24 September 2008

Really enjoyed staying here. Very central but away from the road and therefore no traffic noise. The apartments were very clean and the maid came daily. Sheets and towels were changed during the stay. Breakfast was included and was very good. There are two pools and direct access to the beach. Basic appliances but as we ate out most nights this was not a problem. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant.

  • Liked — Clean and bright apartments and quite peaceful. Pleasant staff and good value for money.
  • Disliked — No water one day due to lack of sun for solar heating.
  • Stayed September 2008, travelled with friends
