Paralos Irini Mare
The Paralos Irini Mare**** (4 stars) is of a high standard and is managed in a very personal and attentive way. Here you experience hospitality the Cretan way.
Wonderfully and peacefully situated at the foot of a hill above a bay with a pebble beach (approx. 100 m). The centre of Agia Galini can be reached after a walk along the promenade of about 10 minutes. An architecturally nice hotel with 97 rooms (some with sea-view and some without) that are distributed among one main building and eight adjoining buildings in a friendly garden. The furnishing is a successful mixture of traditional and modern style.
The main building houses, the reception, safebox (for hire), lounge with satellite-TV-corner, internet café, lobby, small library, bar, gym, sauna, small conference room (50 - 60 people), terrace with magnificent panoramic view on the sea and the bay of Agia Galini. A large fresh-water pool is situated in a very cultivated Mediterranean garden including sun terrace, sunbathing area (including sunloungers) with shady olive trees and carobs. The air conditioned restaurant as well as the pool bar (offering small snacks during lunchtime) are situated in the garden too.
A separate children’s fresh-water pool and a playground is offered for our small guests in the garden. Our reception is always at your disposal, round-the-clock. The staff being both German- and English-speaking will be glad to help you with any question or problem, or to supply you with information about trips and activities in the vicinity.
In the mornings every guest is greeted by a deliciousbreakfast buffet, including among other things granola, fresh fruit, eggs, cheese, sausage and juices, in our pleasant, air-conditioned restaurant. To satisfy the small appetite between the meals, cold and warm snacks are offered at the bar directly at the pool for reasonable prices during lunchtime. The Greek evening buffet composed of cold and warm starters, fresh salads, fish, meat, poultry, traditional Cretan and vegetarian meals as well as delicious desserts will be ready for you in the evenings at dinner-time.
We would be very glad to offer you a warm welcome at the Irini Mare, true to our motto: arriving as a guest, returning as a friend.
