“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

After being very specific on what we were after when booking our holiday, we were recommended the Ariadne Hotel. We read the reviews and seeing how positive they were, things were looking positive.

What a lovely place, just what we wanted.

The family were very welcoming, they were always around by the pool bar at all times of the day. They helped us with all our enquirers and recommended good places to see and eat, they were even more helpful then our thomson rep!

The hotel was very clean, the pool and rooms. Towels and bedding was changed every other day which was fantastic, The rooms cleaned everyday...(be careful though the maids steal your carrier bags so hide them).

Pool area was great, always a sunbed free, whatever time of day! Made you feel very welcome!! Lots of inflatables available so good fun.Ella (the owners daughter) is always around saying hi and playing with all the kids! Food was also good value for money throughout the day :)

BBQ and Rock and roll nights were great fun!!! It was nice to get involved with the hotel, meet other people and have a taste of the greek life. Very good value for money the bbq and a lovely to all get up dancing together.

The hotel offers air con and safety deposit boxes at good prices. Even though we got a safety deposit box just in case, the area felt safe and we left our balcony doors open all the time. The rooms were always cool as the sun never faced them so didn't need air con.

The Hill- Yes there is a bit of a hill to the hotel from the town, but it meant the hotel was away from all the noise at night and you could burn off your dinner. It was a bit hard in the heat but I am not the fittest and at night, it was fine!!

The town Tsilivi itself was lovely!! Great for food (lots of choice) and for drinks. It isn't the most party town but we were not looking for that and still there was night clubs available. The deals are good, food and drink was good prices.

All in all, a great holiday for families, couples or friends for a quiet get away!!

ps- lovely views from the hotel! The up side of the hill!!

The hotel is extremely clean . The pool and surrounding pool area are kept spotless along with pool toilets and bar area .
BBQ night and the rock night are a must both the food and the entertainment are exceptional .
The family who run the hotel go out of their way to make you feel at home .
During our stay we enjoyed breakfast and lunches at the hotels pool bar , there is a great selection of fresh food which is always cooked fresh to order .
We really enjoyed our stay and was sad to have to leave a week was not enough we hope to return next year for a two week stay .

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Ariadne Hotel and I cannot fault it. The hotel is spotless and the room we had was huge with a large balcony. Rooms were cleaned everyday. The pool was great with more than enough sun beds. BBQ night was great-great food and Greek dancing! The hill is ther but what can you do, without it there wouldn't be the great view or the gentle breeze that keeps you cool.

Room Tip: Book the 1 bedroom apartment. Comfortably sleep 4, comes with microwave, toaster and fridge freezer.

This is our 2nd stay, and as our earlier review stated its clean, spacious, and ticked our boxes. The hill was ok, a fair trade for the amazing views from the balcony's. The kids had an amazing time and the hospitality was second to none! Members of our family joined us as this year we decided to get married in resort. The whole family were fantastic with us all, the Wednesday BBQ night was great fun and a good addition to the Friday Rock Nights, everyone had a ball. Other family members stayed at other AI & BB hotels in resort and were horrified by their service in them, and lack of loungers round their pools. The Ariadne welcomed them!! Mum also fell visiting family in Laganas, Pam was a star, helping to get the medical attention required. Thanks guys, keep it up and fingers crossed we will be with you in Summer 2014

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing sea views of Greek mainland & Kefalonia & resort of Tsilivi

This is our second trip to the Ariadne - we were there at the same time in August 2012. We have had a brilliant fortnight! Our 8 year old son didn't want to leave all the friends he'd made behind. The hotel and pool remain spotless, with a Bulgarian couple working hard to maintain the rooms and communal areas clean. The bins are emptied daily, and the sheets and towels changed often. Our hosts were fab - nothing was too much trouble. Thanks again to Pam, Yianni, Helen and Costas. And not forgetting Elena! We went back to some old favourites including Freddy's Beach Bar. And were pleased to discover a new gem : the Ellinon Pelagos behind the Caravel Hotel. Previously the Vineyard. Stunning views and food. Captain Spiro's boat trips remain a must. We rarely go back to the same place twice, but are planning our third trip to the Ariadne!

Felt the need to write and let you know what a fantastic place this is. The family who run it are great and really look after you. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean with the roims being cleaned every day and the pool area really looked after. We were lucky enough to have the top floor and the views were stunning.
Air con is a must in August
The hill is really not as bad as people make out - to be honest after lounging by the pool all day it was our only form of exercise....
Definitely recommend this place to anyone and would love to come back again one day.
Big hugs to all especially Elena x
Love Tracey and Andy - room 403 xx
