Firstly we got an amazingly priced deal for this hotel so we were thinking, 'let's not expect too much!' you know what, we were wrong. ROOMS This hotel has loads of little bungalow style apartments. There are two parts, the new and the old. We stayed in the old, but the good thing about that, you're slightly closer to the... More

First time in Greece. Lovely location, beautiful view, considerate and helpful staff, made to feel welcome. Room, spacious and clean. Loved it. Just so tranquil. Literally seconds from pebble beach but water crystal clear. Cafes close by and catered for all needs.. Approximately 15 min walk into town, well worth it for choice of restaurants especially around the lake (... More

We spent 5 short days in Agios Nikolaos from the 20th September at Ariadne Beach, and the stay was absolutely great! The staff are lovely and helpful. The food are varied and the half board price was perfect for our holidays. The individual bungalow are a mix between hotel and private studio which are good compromise. There are a lot... More

Our highlight on Crete. Ariadne hotel has fantastic location - near the sea and beach, near Agios Nikolaos. But also in peaceful surroundings... 5 stars for that x 3 stars for older rooms (bathroom nead refurbishment and mattress is too hard). 5 stars for service, kind staff and attentive waiters. Fantastic dinner (and fabulous view), average breakfast (repetitive). Recommendation: rent... More

We spent 10 days here from the 8th September for our honeymoon. A lovely hotel with great staff and good food. Very relaxed atmosphere, and beautiful views. Hope to return in the near future. Just a 5 minute walk into the town with lots of shops and restaurants. A gem of a hotel as its not too big, and it... More

I really don't understand the reasons behind the bad or mediocre reviews of this place. We have just come back from 10 days at this hotel and were very pleasantly surprised. Our room was spacious, clean and had a large balcony with a sea view. The pool area was lovely, though we tend to be 'beach' people so we only... More
