We stayed one night at the end of summer season 2013 and were fascinated by the room and the food. Everything was perfect having in mind that this was the last working day of the hotel. I have never seen such variety of good food in all inclusive hotel. We will definitely visit it again and recommend to our friends.

We dined in 2 of the 3 a la carte restaurants: Asian and Italian - in both food was delicious and the service was first class. The rooms are cleaned every day. The minibar is refilled also every...

the first reason we went for a second time at this hotel was mostly out 4-year daughter - she loved it so much the first time, we had to promise we would go again. the second reason was that we had to compromise between distance (the shorter to drive the better) and quality (the best we could get within that...

This is our 3rd visit the Arabella so you know we must like the place! We arrived at 4am but, as ever, the friendly staff welcomed us in their usual efficient way. The bedrooms have been refurbished this year and are spotless and clean (as is the rest of the hotel and grounds). We only occasionally made breakfast, but when... More

Just back from 2 weeks, a great relaxing holiday. The hotel is very comfortable, the fridge in the room with daily beer, water, and soft drinks is a nice touch.

We went there to rest and have a peaceful vacation. All I can say is that we were charmed by everything in the hotel and highly recomment it to everyone who has the opportunity to go there. Its not the most luxurious hotel but everything else is incredible.
