“Lovely! But....”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Horizon, we last stayed in 2010. We love Arrillas and have been many times over the years. The Horizon is a wonderful hotel, the recent refurbishments to the rooms are very tasteful and all the staff friendly and helpful. The location is fabulous, love sitting on the balcony watching the sunset....
Our only gripe this year is the rules regarding the swimming pool!! We travelled with our 13 yr old son who made friends with other children also staying there. No inflatables or balls are allowed in the pool, no jumping, splashing, racing....the children were also told to use their flippers slowly???? This was August and anyone staying at this time must surely expect children to be on holiday??? Just wondering whether this is turning into a 'boutique' adult only hotel, hope not as arrillas is such a lovely family resort.

Room Tip: 2 nd floor has the best views, however all rooms have sea views.

Stayed for second time - after gap of 7 years - with 2 children aged 12 and 9. Great location close to beach, room refurbishment very good, very clean, great breakfast, good restaurant. If you are travelling with children please note it is not as amenable place to stay with children as in previous years. Our children met some other children staying at the hotel, ranging in age from 6 to 13. Whilst playing on the pool they were asked by staff to only use the pool for swimming quietly &relaxing! not for swimming races and general play. Rules were respected in relation to no diving and no inflatables in the pool. Arillas is a family resort, this was August in middle of school holidays! Clearly the hotel is trying to target a different clientele which in my opinion is a great shame, although no doubt it will suit others.

Room Tip: Top floor for better view

The staff of hotel horizon is fantastic: very kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and nice decorated. Its great to have a tasty breakfast/diner with a beautiful sea view in the restaurant. The hotel is perfectly situated with the beach across the road. The cocktails at the bar are delicious! Ask Marinos for his special mixes!
The only focus for the hotel are the loose shower holder and soap holder in the bathroom. Probably something they'll repair in wintertime.
We can recommend this lovely hotel to everyone. When we'll visit Corfu again, we'll come back here!

This Hotel is very special. The room was modern, clean, with a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, the air conditioning was quiet and effective. What a view from the balcony - the pool and the sea. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice. The Hotel has a wonderful bar area overlooking the sea, where every evening we sat and enjoyed cocktails and the Corfu beer, which is made at the local micro brewery. The restaurant at the Hotel Horizon serves excellent food, with specials every evening and it has a wonderful rooftop terrace where you can enjoy your food and see stunning sunsets. We were in the minority of guests that hadn't stayed at Hotel Horizon before and we know why. The staff are incredible! Marinos and Daniella who run the Hotel are so attentive, nothing is too much trouble and the same goes for all their staff - we will definitely return next year!

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. Even though the gap between our visits was 9 years, the welcome, standards and service were just as good - if not better.
Great rooms - all with a view of the beach, with airconditioning, mosquito nets & safety deposit box all included in the price.
Apart from the fabulous location, it's the staff, quality of service and excellent food that make this place really special. A special thanks to Angela - who remembered how my husband liked his morning coffee and to the lady who cleaned our room every day and always had a smile for us and time for a chat.Every member of staff worked so hard under the careful direction of Marinos & Daniela. This hotel has many return visitors for all the reasons i have mentioned.
We hope to return again - and won't leave it so long next time!

Clean hotel in nice quiet location but rather peculiar service from everyone except the always friendly and engaging receptionist.
Given previous reviews we may have been unlucky. Simple small talk was non existant and the waiter appeared ill equiped for a job in customer service.

We stayed here in June for 1 week. Couldn't ask for anything more in terms of accommodation. The room had everything we needed, staff were extremely friendly and the location was absolutely perfect. This was our second time in Arillas and the Horizon hotel made it a perfect holiday. Hope to go back again soon.
