Porto Galini Seaside Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Nikiana
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This hotel is in such a wonderful location and is so well run that in my opinion it deserves to be 5 star.
We had a superior room close to the reception area and could hardly fault it. It was so spacious and being high above the sea had great views. The sunrises and sunsets were memorable. Just a couple of minor niggles, a plug was needed near to the kettle and the bathroom would have benefited from a magnifying mirror. Also, as has been mentioned before, the shower cabinet could have been one size larger.
Breakfasts were stupendous and the unlimited fresh orange juice much appreciated.
Loved the Hotel, loved Lefkada.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view but further away from the sea, pools and dining room but therefore...

The hotel looks amazing, since its refurbishment. The beach and chill out areas all new and give a feeling of space and tranquility.

This hotel is more of a retreat, suitable for book readers, posing at the bar in your latest outfit and gentle strolls.

As for sport and fun, you can forget it! Any sports are found at great expense in the nearby Nidri.

My wife took me away here for a week after i suffered a nervous breakdown. the room we were
allocated was close to reception but it was large and had a fantastic view. it was also quiet.
the staff were very helpful, polite and good at their jobs.
everything was clean and tidy .
the local mythos beer is nectar.
the only downside was the plates in the buffet were cold so any hot food you put on it soon got cold thus making some food not as tasty.
just a point there are a lot of steps or steep slopes not really suitable for older people although they do have golf buggies to ferry people about.

Room Tip: go for a superior room

We stayed at the main building, with beautifull sea view. The room was big and comfetrble. The only thing that bothered us is that the balcony was not very private and connected to the balcony of the next room. Breakfast was very good, great private beach and pools and very good service. It is on the opposite side of the great beachs on the island, about one hour from Porto katiki but it's a beautifull drive to the other side. The hotel is very close to Nidri and to Lafkada town. PERFECT CHOICE

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.
