Hotel is close to airport ~20 mins We stayed in one of blocks on the second floor with amazing sea view. Good: Air-condition, fridge, large balcony with Sea view, beach is close to hotel. A lot of sunbeds, pool is very big and clean. Beach towels can be changed every day in the spa area. Bath Towels were changed everyday. Staff is very friendly and communicable( Reception, bar, cleaning service, restaurants ) all are the best, Cocktail menu and soft drink, food is excellent with a lot of choice, also can book asian restaurant for one time, every evening can spend time in the bar (there are lot of animations and shows) , bus stop is in front of hotel. Medium: Bathroom and room should be renew because is outdated but is clean. PS: sunrise and sunset are amazing. Thanks Arina Beach staff.

Loved it only 20 mins from airport the first day we couldn't get over how many planes went over, after first day didn't bother us at all really enjoyed watching them in end, Definitely didn't hear any at bedtime. Hotel it self one main building then accommodation off it in five blocks and lots of bungalows we was in block 3 top floor 3203 large spacious room with fantastic sea views we was taken to this in a buggy lovely chap. The room itself had two single beds pushed together very comfy and clean , there was also a sofa bed coffee table large unit tea /coffee facilities a small fridge a free safe. Aircon we found this really good as i am a light sleeper it was very quiet excellent best we have had. Wardrobe space fine it did lack draws for your underwear though there was open shelves in wardrobe area. Large balcony with lovely recliner chairs coffee table rail for clothes. Bathroom even though dated it was adequate. Beach towels in room on arrival can change daily at spa liked the fact there was no towel card. Just left in room when we finished our holiday. Hotel right on beach we did have two days red flag as there was alot of waves though nobody took any notice on the second red flag day it was so hot you needed to go in sea to cool off. We are strong swimmers though we found the waves were soft landing there was no danger think over zealous being a red flag. The sea was beautiful and clear. Loads of sunbeds on the beach and around pool area you could sea a big dash of people around 7 am putting towels on bed. Madness! there was enough to go around. Lovely large double beds on beach so comfy had a few naps on them Lovely l;little snack beach bar close to the end of resort free for us payable for visitors. We wore small clear wristbands . Lovely communal areas loads of seating nice pool bar lots of choice of beverages some payable . Good cocktail menu they even had Aperol Spritz my favorite they give good measures too.They done a sparkling wine that was drinkable and great Pina Coladas . There was a large lunch venue near pool with the usual pizzas pastas salads, fruit etc Help yourself to ice creams all day. Pour your own beer, wine soft drinks coffee water etc. This venue also become the Asian at night to book this as you enter the normal dining room there was a sheet that you just put your name and preferred time so they knew how many to cater for. This was always quiet do not know why food was stunning really tasty , nice sushi noodles, curry's lots of choice prawn crackers, best spring rolls. again help yourself to drinks they also did carafes in both restaurants that was ideal we always filled one with water one with wine saved going back and for. Main restaurant lovely clean bright space with lots of choice of hot and cold food Food was excellent and always lots of choice only thing lacked British sausage for breakfast if that was my only complaint shows how good it was. Bar excellent queuing system great nobody pushes in fantastic team in both bars very quick efficient friendly service. Great drinks didn't stint on measures. We have got to say loved the place and the team who worked there everyone was friendly and efficient would i recommend this place in a heartbeat 100% yes Good entertainment too they brought in outside acts we really enjoyed. Bus stop out side hotel bus to Herakleaon every 30 or so mins do not believe signpost Enjoy your holiday everyone who comes here i am sure you will.

Arrived early hours to be met by friendly Reception staff, making us feel welcome, taken to room in main building by a lovely porter, again very friendly. Guided us to the dining hall for some food as starving! Great start!! Room Pros: Took note of request for a double bed, was nice, clean and airy. Remote air conditioning, good sized tele, with tea/coffee facilities. Big balcony and good view of sea and some gardens. Cons: Bathroom is dated (as other reviews have stated), no plug in bath, so shower only option. Fixed shower screen, which did not stop water escaping. Fixed hairdryer although good, was awkward to used as you had to hold on to the on/off button to keep on (not good if you have arthritus in your fingers). Door would not close as too big for frame. Storage Not the best in the world, one wardrobe with 12 hangers and one shelf, only two tiny bedside drawers, that you would find hard pushed to put in your underwear, so was living out of a suitcase for the holiday. Having said that, it did not put us off. Dining Two restaurants, one poolside which was great for when you just wanted to eat in your swimwear (less informal) and to have snacks, which were a plenty, with icecream and goodies! The more formal for evening was very good, choice of food very good, tasted excellent, best food we have experienced so far on our travels. The usual request for gentlement to wear long trousers in the evening was ignored by 90% of men and were not challenged (however, dress code should apply to both sexes - as some were a little racy to say the least). All staff at any time were excellent. Evening Bar staff top banana, could not fault at all, very attentive, after first 2 nights, knew exactly what you wanted and although a queuing system in place, this worked extremely well, but when quiet a drink would be put in front of you when your glass was near empty and they always had a smile on their faces. Entertainment was overall ok....but the best Greek night we have experienced. Beach/Pool Really lucky to have the choice of 2 types of sun bed, free of charge on the beach/by pool and on a garden area. Large beds similar to a 4 poster size without the posts were amazing to use. There was of course the usual dawn raid from other nationals for towels on beds, but you get that where ever you go. However, some came unstuck when grass cut early and towels covered in grass, very amusing to see. Pool excellent, even though unheated. Have seen many reviews about the planes and yes, there are, its the flight path, but this did not put us off at all. Overall an excellent holiday, all staff excellent, only a 4 markings as there were some elements we would expect to be better given the price, but would not stop us going back (apart from possibly the airport!!!!)

We had a wonderful week's holiday at this hotel. We were situated in the last block with sea view and balcony. We were not overlooked by anyone. The beach is lovely and sandy with warm, safe and clear sea. There were free Sun loungers and umbrellas which were very welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding, almost too good as we did not want to stop eating!!! Huge choice at each meal time with a good selection of drinks. Excellent attention to detail such as pool towels, telescopic drying rail on the balcony, varied comfortable seating everywhere. Very clean and well cared for. We would certainly like to return.
