Ilias, Bernice's husband was there waiting for us at the port and gave us a lift with our bags the short distance to Galini. There we met Bernice who had our room waiting and once we had settled in, she gave us a quick run down of all the local amenities, beaches and routes.
The room was clean and cosy. The kitchenette was well equipped and on the single occasion we needed a bottle opener, Ilias got a new one for the room. The shower had plenty of hot water and was always clean.
The pension had a great atmosphere and even though we didn't use it, the garden would be great for chilling out in the hot summer evenings. The WiFi signal was strong and we had a couple of Skype calls without any glitches. We also had some laundry done - by far the best service we've had on the Greek Islands. Not sure I should mention it was free, but I'm going to anyway!
Galini is located about 2 minutes walk from the Yialos beach - surprisingly quiet and clean. The Chora is about 10 to 15 minutes walk away; you can get the bus from the harbour area if you wish but we always walked up.
