“Nice hotel all inclusive can be improved”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Me and my partner went in may for a week it was a lush hotel but the all inclusive was poor as the bar closed at 11.00 pm and food wise was lovely but I will say it could be better opinion of diffrant stuff. There was a lot if German polish and Russia there but we met some lovely couple from west mainlands and we had a fab week.

Stayed for a week with my family so a mix of ages. The food was brilliant and lots to choose from. Various lemonades and juices. Red and white wine, raki and ouzo but only one beer available though. The rooms are very nice and spacious and gets cleaned every day except sundays. Two nice pools, one kids pool and just 150 meters to a lovely sandy beach. Close to Chersonisos and walking distance from Stalis. Darts, tabletennis, waterpolo, watergym, shuffleboard and kids entertainment every day except saturday. Also various entertainment every evening. Karaoke, casino(poker and roulette), bingo, quiz and dancenight. My Family and I participated in most of it every day and we really enjoyed it. A big thanks to the animation team at Arminda for making our stay extra fun. Thanks Povilas, Vita and Rugile:-)
Would definitely stay again and I think it's really good value for money.

Stayed for a week from 9/5/13-16/05/13, food was good when first arrived then went downhill.Selection of drinks for all inclusive absolutely poor, only one beer available which is like water, only spirits are Uzo and something else. No entertainment really on a night . Would not recommend it for a all inclusive holiday on a budget holiday you need to spend money to enjoy yourself

When we arrived we were shown to the dining room where a cold supper and wine and beer were waiting which was very nice after no food on the flight and a longish journey, you may be one of the last to be dropped off but it takes about 30 to 40 mins transfer. Nicely located hotel if you want peace and quiet there are no loud bars or discos to disturb you. It is a nice walk if you turn left down into a local town and Hersonissos is about a thirty minute walk the other way turning right out of the hotel. Staff were friendly and attentive, buffet was nice and varied but we only stayed a week , free beer and wine all day and evening local firewater free also but you have to pay for cocktails or premium spirits , wine and beer is ok local stuff. Rooms are nice quite spacious even more so are the family rooms , marble bathroom shower worked fine, maids don't hassle you to get out to clean and generally do it while you are at breakfast. Very good omelette station at breakfast made for you should u wish, but do not expect a British fry up, they cater for the whole of Europe but provide a cooked and cold selection of breakfast . There are 2 pools one quiet and the other more lively, plenty of sunbirds and a spa if the ladies want a little pampering. Kids entertainment basic but regular and darts and table tennis and water polo for the adults but not much evening entertainment. Would definitely stay again and thought it fair value for money.

Room Tip: Not sure how as allocated on arrival.

We stayed in the Arminda with family so a mix of ages, Mum and partner pensioners us mid 40's our kids in their 20's and the grandkids aged 4 and 6 years. The staff at The Arminda were friendly enough and the kids loved the couple that ran the kids club. However, the all inclusive food option was ok some days but generally none exciting, the drink option was poor with only offering wine (drinkable but dont get excited) and ouzo, metaxa, lager and raki (fire water lol).. any other spirit or drink had to be purchased and it wasnt cheap. The rooms were comfortable and a nice size. The evening entertainment was by the same kids entertainers and was pretty desperate really... not what you would stay on complex for. Luckily about a 20-30 min walk takes you into Hersonissos where there are lots of bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view they're probably the best rooms

Very pleased with this hotel, delicious food, attentive staff, very clean & well maintained. Choice of pools, 2 bars + dining area. Seems slightly odd that not all drinks are available in all bars. Best dessert selection we've ever had in Greece. . Close to lovely beach and well situated between Stallis & Hersonnis. Would highly recommend a visit

Meals were good however ....... Many of the staff were rude and unhelpful and witnessed them shouting at other guests a number of times including myself. Entertainment was for children only the majority of the time and only adult entertainment was a 1hour karaoke session once and a singer and guitarist again only once and that was enough ! Beach actually belonged to the hotel next door and charged for everything. The bus stop outside did not exist and you took your life in your hands crossing the road. Nearest town is a good 45 minutes walk away. Only alcoholic drinks available are local wines , brandy , raki and ouzo everything else you pay for. Most of the games for kids etc are chargeable. Overall not value for money for what is supposed to be an All inclusive holiday package very very disappointed in hotel and the company we booked with.
