Pros: Hotel is located on the hill and this causes amazing view on the sea, town Ierapetra and beatiful high mountains in the background. Food offer is not as big as in the other 4* hotels, but I almost everything was very delicious (mainly vegetable and meat). Al the dishes are filled regularly. Receptionists are very kind, speak many languages... More

Visited this hotel back in 2009. At the time the hotel was fine, food was great (Not so if you expect british fish and chips). Only bad thing to say about food was the mediocre ham and cheese rolls left in the sun on the pool bar. Pool was lovely with some beautiful views. Room itself was clean and changed... More

Maybe long time ago this was a 4-star hotel, but now it doesn't deserve this rating ! Old furniture, no atmosphere in the lobby and the 'dining-room'. Terrible foodbuffet and lousy service at the poolbar ("no we don't have water")

We arrived at the hotel at 3 a.m with the group of other Poles who booked the holiday there, and we were like "are we the only ones here?!" just beacuse it was so quiet and calm. After a long trip from Poland to Greece we were so tired and the only thing we dreamed of was to finally get... More

You realise that this place does not cater for Brits when you arrive (eventually) and the union flag is not fluttering in the breeze with the other flags. If you are a diabetic then this place is a no go. My brother -in -law was told to drink water when he asked for diet drinks!!! When we arrived at the... More

This hotel does not cater for the british. The hotel serves cold food three times daily. when you complain the answer you will get is the food tastes better when served cold. I find this very strange as the restaurants all around serve hot food, no complaints there. If you want to go on any excursions you are out of... More

The Arion Palace Hotel was beautiful from the outside, as it looks on the website. Our room was very clean, the cleaner came every day and changed bedding and towels. The pool was nice. Thats the only good bit. We were on the lower floor which is kind of under ground in the hotel, it is weird to describe but... More

I agree with the rest reviewers that were not satisfied with their stay in Arion. I also wonder how this hotel received the 4 star classification. It actually looks something like 2.5 stars. My experience: The rooms are spacious but not very clean. Only two soaps left for me during the first day and that's all. Nothing for the rest... More
