Sleep Quality

Bit late with this review, got back from the Arena 2nd June. Took my family for a treat party of 15 age's from 3 to 60. The hotel was fantastic plenty to do, two slide pool's and play area for kids,sorted. Food in the main hotel had plenty of options, help yourself to the drinks. Bars and food around the pool and beach also very good with plenty of options. Lots of outside seating areas for the entertainment kids entertainment first then a singer, or something like for the rest of us. Staff and management very friendly always smiling and very busy, don't know how they do it in that heat working very long hours. Already booked again for next year. Fantastic

Lovely hotel, but food lets it down

Hotel and staff were lovely. The pools around the hotel were great, and the lifeguard on the kids pool was awesome, and always kept a look out for the kids. We felt what let the hotel down though, was the food. The selection was very samey each night, and there was not a lot of choice if you have fussy kids. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport, which is great, and right on the beach. This isn’t a very touristy area, so you would need to hire a car or catch the bus to visit the nearest town.

Amazing hotel, fabulous facilities and rooms and fantastic staff!

We had a short break here in mid May and absolutely love this hotel, Arina Beach staff are fantastic doing everything to make us feel welcome, we arrived midnight Crete time and the hotel had even laid a buffet on for our family, our family room was huge with separate bedroom for the girls, all modern facilities very clean and honestly the bed was as comfortable as home, first time I've ever gone away and slept so soundly! We found the food to be good, plenty of choice and lots of fresh fruit and Greek salad too, we didn't try the a la carte as the main restaurant had lovely food but heard good comments from others that had used them, there were plenty of pools to sit by, the water park pools were great funfor the girls, as well as the beach, there were great beach bars and cafes too for afternoon snacks or lunch if you didn't fancy the buffet. Just a 10 minute bus ride takes you into Heraklion Town where we visited a beautiful Fort on the sea front harbour, well worth the 2 euros to walk round with some great history and views across the town and mountains behind, finished by a lovely meal and shopping we loved this hotel so much we're booking for October !
