My boyfriend and I first stayed at the Ariadne in June 2010 for two weeks. Those two weeks were fantastic and we were so pleased with our holiday that I reviewed it on here soon after our return - I had to recommend to others!
We have returned to the Ariadne every year since to enjoy two weeks on this beautiful island. The Ariadne Hotel is always kept clean, the rooms are spacious and all have a superb sea view. As I said in my previous review, the kitchenette has everything you need - fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, enough utensils, plates, glasses and cutlery for the number of people staying in the room, and the bathroom is kept clean - what more do you need? Towels and bed sheets are changed every few days and the rooms cleaned daily. The pool area is immaculate and is Kostas' pride and joy. There are always plenty of sunbeds and a refreshing pool to take a dip in to cool off.
The pool bar is spacious, with plenty of entertainment (pool, TV, music, books, food & drink, WiFi) and Pamela is always there to welcome you. BBQ night and Rock night are brilliant and great to get to know other people staying at the hotel. The family provide some great entertainment and always ensure that everyone is having a good time. Pamela and Giannis' daughter Elena is such a delight and much like her parents and grandparents (Kostas and Helen) - always welcomes you with a smile!
The location of the hotel is ideal if you like to be away from the main strip - but close enough that you are just a few minutes walk from the nearest bars, shops and restaurants when you need them. The beach is just a 10 minute walk.
Last year we returned with some of our family - after hearing about what a wonderful place it is from us three years in a row, they joined us out there and loved it too!
There's so much to do on the island also - such as visiting the shipwreck, turtle island, the blue caves, keri caves, gerekas beach, waterparks (Tsilivi opened its own waterpark in 2011, and there is another on the island) plus there are lots of other pretty villages and beaches - you won't be disappointed.
Just take a look through all the other wonderful reviews and you can be assured that this is a fantastic place to go.
We have just booked another two weeks holiday here in June 2014 and can't wait to go back.
A huge thank you to all the family for your hospitality - see you all again soon!
Tom & Lara (June 2010, '11, '12, '13 and soon to be 2014!)
