“Cool place to stay”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Coming to Hersonissos for the second time to this very hotel. Very glad with good QPR. Friendly staff. They are happy ho help you anytime. Excellent food, neat and clean rooms. There's a pool with sun loungers at the hotel and GREAT bar next to the pool. Very special THANKS to the bartender! ;)
The beach is 2 minutes from the hotel.
Certainly, gonna come next year.

IT IS A NICE FAMILY HOTEL AND very NICE staff.

This is a budget hotel so if you come without high expectation you will enjoy it.

THE ROOM and dining hall décor is SIMPLE AND not very fashionable BUT it's nice and very CLEAN.

The towels are replaced every second day, there is no shampoo in the shower and no television in the room.

The food is basic without too many options. Nevertheless dinner was very tasty.

THE LOCATION IS GREAT, VERY CLOSE TO THE BEACH

AND IN THE MIDDLE OF HERSSONUSS.


The public areas in the hotel are very nice especially the swimming pool area.

I will be definitely go back to armava hotel.

I've never met more friendly, helpfull, lovely owners and staff ever.

We originally booked a hotel in Stalis through Teletext.co.uk. The website had the hotel in Stalis as 3*. It wasn't. We booked through Teletext from the UK as we thought we could get a really good cheap deal. It should be noted that the star rating teletext applies to its hotels is completely inaccurate and does not correspond to the star rating given by the own hotel's website.

My wife and I decided that in order to enjoy our holiday we would have to find another hotel so we looked in Hersonissos and the surrounding area. We came across the Armava and explained our situation. The owners could'nt do more to help us. They gave us an extremely cheap deal and threw in loads of extras such as AC (which is essential) for the 9 remaining days we were staying. They gave us a room that not only overlooked the sea but the pool as well. The sea is less than a 30 second walk away. Manos the Barman is a legend.

For only a 3* hotel, our stay was made into a fantastic holiday specificallly due to the friendliness of the staff at this hotel. Although in Hersonissos, the hotel is far away enough from the messy areas to have a relaxing stay however the the main nightlife is only 5 mins walk away. If you are looking for a cheap break away in comfortable accomodation then stay at the Armava.

Visit Galini's in Koutouloufari (5 mins up the hill in taxi and 15 min walk down) for exceptional service and traditional greek food. Possibly the best service in a restaurant I've ever had.

Good hotel, clean rooms, near the sea and the center of the town. We had nice weather during our stay. We recommend to relax next to the hotel´s swimming pool with a drink specially prepared for you by the most friendly and qualified barman you have ever met :)
