“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Arokaria Beach is the most relaxing hotel I have ever been. It's right next to a fantastic beach on Paros, offering superb views. Ι stayed for 5 days with my 4 year old son and we only got around with our bathing suites! After all, isn't this the meaning of a true holiday? Thank you Anthie and Tasos for making it happen!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

We were warmly welcomed at the ferry and Tassos, one of the owners, offered us several times his shuttle services. The first impression of the appartment was superbe, beautifully decorated, a welcome cake waiting for us and a splendid terrace and view. However, it must be said that the kitchen is very badly equipped which made cooking rather challenging, a bit like when camping. We did not really mind since we were often eating outside, but the purpose of an apartment is to allow for home cooking all the time - which is clearly no fun here. A very pleasant fact is that the apartment is cleaned every two days and linen changed during the stay. We've spend a good time at Arokaria.

The location is great (really 20m froma very nice beach, not overcrowded, with 2 nice bars/restaurant to enjoy the bay).
We even could enjoy fireworks fro the 15/08, whereas all bars were already fully-booked since weeks.
The room and terrasses are lovely (i recommend to book the rooms at the 1st floor, better view than the other ones), and the cleaning lady comes everyday.
last but not least : Tassos is a great and helpful person. He checks everytime if everything is ok, finds solutions, and anticipates possible issues (our boat was canceled and managed to change our tickets).
So, I simply recommend that place.
! : a car/taxi is definitely needed for the night birds ;-)

Our brief end-of summer stay at the Arokaria Beach Studios last year was perfect: heavenly clear sea, quiet beach with loungers (well, it was September), peaceful evenings on the veranda watching the sun set with a bottle of wine, comfortable beds... all conducive to a great feeling of well-being. Tassos and Anthie are helpful and welcoming hosts. Definitely to be recommended!

We booked a 1 week holiday in this place, but we had to leave after the first night, because everything was simply horrible.
First of all, the guy forgot to come pick up us at the port (and he knew we have a 1 year old baby!)
The apartment was near Marcelo beach, this is true, but that beach isn't beautiful at all: it's just in front of the main port of the island, with a lot of big ferries coming and leaving all day long: not exactly what you do expect from your holiday in the Cycladic islands!
The apartment was extremely small ans old, the kitchen was dirty, the garden abandoned and they even left an enormous bag of dirty towels in our place. If this is not enough, consider that the place was stinking of drain!

I lost all my deposit (around 150 euros) but it was impossible to remain in that place, that was also very expensive in comparison with other apartments in the same zone.

If you want to get away from the glamor and night-life and stay inexpensively right on a great sandy beach, with clear water, not over-crowded, with beach-chairs and straw shades, surrounded by unpretentious, nice, people, this is your place. Arriving at Paros, the manager of the beach villas, Thasos, came to pick us up, despite the fact that we arrived at 1:30 in the morning. The suite of beach studios is ideally placed right on one of the island’s best beaches. Our 1 bedroom studio has its own kitchen and straw sunshade and chairs on our private terrace, from where we have a great beach view. The next day, he threw a delicious steak, salad and roast vegetable barbeque for his 10 or so renters for free! To get from Martcelo Beach to Parikia (the capital) we board a water taxi for just 2 Euros per person for the 10 minute ride. On one or more occasions when we were stuck in the town and impossible to get a taxi, Thasos would drive in and pick us up and bring us back to the villas. We were also allowed to use the communal laundry machine and he supplied the detergent. WiFi was free. This might all have seemed par for the course were we to pay luxury prices for our luxury location, but at 90 Euros/night it was just sheer kindness.

You don't need more than 5 minutes in the place to appreciate its unique spot right in front of Marcelo beach. The relaxing atmosphere for a memorable holiday is supported by Anthi and Taso, owners of the place, that no matter what time is it, will always have time for chatting and some "souma". So after a day you will most probably feel local staying in a priviledged location.
