Excellent hotel

We loved this stylish hotel. the staff were extremely helpful and happy to go the extra mile - for example, my wife's kindle had a flat battery and the staff managed to find a suitable cable, which they were happy to loan to us. cocktails were excellent, though not cheap outside happy hour (there's a good bar next door for the rest of the time). we enjoyed the poolside which is stylish and clean, like the rest of the hotel. the galaxy is about 10 minutes walk from the town centre, though those with mobility or sight issues would find the pavement of demokratias avenue a challenge - it seems to have been half rebuilt and abandoned full of holes and raised iron works. no fault of the hotel of course, but it's something to be aware of.
