We stayed at Ariadne hotel for a few days and we had a very good experience: staff is very friendly and polite, food and restaurant generous and of good quality, view is also perfect! We also tried the Ageo SPA and the team was great. Nothing to complain about, we are happy to recommend this place.

Ariadne hotel au Nicholas Definately not a 4 star hotel. Starting with findiing your room , which is a challange, although we got an escort from the reception to our room, i would expect to get a map of the hotel, since room location is a real mess. But that was just a start. Stayed for two days with a group, so we couldn't just leave. The room was not clean, actually dirty. Hair in the bath ,black strips of mold, and evntually a thing with towels. We came back to find out the used towels wet not changed. Went to reception , The reception guy handed us orher towels which had a strong cigarette smell! He said that their policy is to change towels only every other day. Being too tired to go  we used old towels, and after a short shower (couldn't stand the bath), my husband got in, but there were no hot wather! In addition to all that there are no safety accessories for getting in and out the bath. The dining room is crowded and unpleasant. Vegetable are overcooked ,if you can avoid it, don't eat there.

In general we enjoyed staying there. Our superior room was clean and comfortable for 1 year old baby. The area was beautiful. Food was good. We took only breakfast, so to be free and enjoy meal in other places too. The bad thing that we had a very poor wifi.

I don't know who rated this hotel as a 4-star. Rooms: Rooms are old some of them with a good side-view of the sea but still old. A lot of CLIMBING! No elevators, hundreds of stairs, but if you don't mind it.... WiFi: WiFi works terrible; very slow internet connection. Forget about the Internet access if you don't take your own one with you. No chance you can even check your facebook. Hotel attractions: none. Forget about it straight away. There is a small gym if you find it attractive in any way. Tennis court in a hotel next door. 10-20 euro per hour Staff: very friendly. Can't say a bad thing about staff. Swimming pool: I don't know how they do it but water is colder than in the sea. MUCH colder. I was swimming in the sea every day but couldn't do that in the pool. Forget about promised hot snacks between courses. Only some cookies and terrible sandwiches. All inclusive option and bars: generally good alcohol, however all inclusive works only till 10:45 pm, while the bar is open till midnight. Don't forget to tip bar staff for extras. Price to quality: average. But don't expect anything special. Definitely not 4-star hotel. Generally I would say: 3-star hotel because it's close to the sea. Food: ok but nothing special. Breakfast: every day the same. Some local food + European. I went for English breakfast every morning as I couldn't find anything tasty. Good choice of fruits tho'. Beach: nice but not by the hotel. 10 minutes of walking but worth it. In nutshell: boring poor quality 3-star hotel. Good for a sleeping purpose only. My opinion is subjective and exuberant due to the fact it should not be a 4-star hotel. Thanks for reading

The Bad--Noisy at night--buses and LOUD people at the bar/restaurant/neighboring rooms. Food at breakfast was not very good--watery eggs, poor choice of cereals. Extra charge for use of the safe. The good--Took a low room as suggested by another reviewer, but noisy at night. Excellent shower. News programs in English--not just German! Walking distance into town. Great beach. easy parking on the spot.
