“Five Star Facilities and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

The level of service and facilities provided at Porto Galini are exceptional and exceed the four star rating, from the perfect beach side location,stunning views and high standard and quality of service. We had a superior room which was spacious and well equipped with plenty of storage and a short walk to the steps down to the beach.
We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and although there were plenty of families staying at the hotel, there is lot of space around the pool and on the beach to find a quiet area.
Travelled with Olympic and their rep, Phil, was great in providing information which was just right for our holiday and needs.

This was our second stay in Porto Galini. Our first stay was in July 2012. If you are looking for a proper 4 or 5 star hotel this is the best in Lefkada. Additionally, it has a private beach of its own which is a rare instance in Greece because generally all beaches are open to public. It is also located nicely between Lefkada town and Nidri. Even if you do not have a car there is a bus stop in front of the hotel.
In both occasions we stayed in the new wing so we are not in a position to comment about the rooms in the old wing. Nevertheless, they seem to be well restored from the outside. Make sure you ask for a room with a sea view. Some rooms do not have sea view. Last year we stayed in a superior suite and this year it was a maisonette. They were very similar in the sense that there is a separate bedroom and a living room. The couches in the living room can be turned into beds. The good thing about the maisonette is that it is split in two floors and has two separate bathrooms and showers in each floor so gives independence. Both floors have a balcony also. It feels like two separate rooms with a connection. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are newly done but the shower cabin is too small, especially if you are a bit overweight you can have a difficult time trying to move around.
The open buffet breakfast is very good with a lot of variety including freshly baked bread and pastry. You have either the option of using the Tavern or the pool buffet for lunch. They serve both drinks and food to the pool and the beach from the pool buffet all day and prices are reasonable.
They have canoes and small sailing boats at the beach free of charge for hotel guests. If you want to rent a speed boat then you need to pay. If you want a day out on the sea with a speed boat we recommend that you rent one from Nidri and go and see the islands across like Onassis island and Meganissi. It is cheaper and the distance is closer by boat.
The only improvement I would recommend to the hotel is the way they change beach towels. Currently, they change them if you leave them in your room. But generally the room is not done that early in the morning and you want to go to the beach so you need to either go to the reception or try to find the cleaning staff.

Room Tip: Sea view room from new wing.

This was our second time in Porto Galini. Excellent location,very professional and friendly staff, very clean hotel,quiet beach, great breakfast. Nothing to complain about. Excellent service ! People with mobility problems might have some difficulties as there are a lot of stairs due to the landscape. The two steps right in front of the beds are quite dangerous. Need to be very careful at night !
Would go back any time !!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with two small kids and found the hotel to be very clean and lovely. There are 2 large pools with a private pebble beach. The rooms were large and catered for all. I suggest to take a private boat trip around the island/ and other islands nearby including Skorpios. Also a trip to Lefkada town is worth it and there are many places you can visit to eat out.

Such a beautiful hotel! Everything is perfect: location, rooms, view, beach, water, food, people, services! Close to the capital of the island and close to Nidri from where you can go on cruises. Good for snorkeling. Quiet beach. Very good breakfast. The service at the restaurant is high class. Beautiful gardens. Places to park. Nothing to complain about. I would come back again for sure.
