Arina Beach Hotel...where do I start? First impressions were fantastic after the short 20 minute coach transfer. The hotel looked brand new and epic with helpful reception staff. Our room wasn't quite ready so we were invited to go for lunch in the main buffet style restaurant. Again, a superb first impression with its views looking out onto the main pool and beyond to the beach. The choice of food was amazing with various food stations to select from and ONLY the fussiest of guests couldn't find something they liked! So,after lunch we were given our room key and I felt a little disappointed that we were staying over the road on the offsite annex building rather than the beautiful main hotel..my disappointment soon changed when we walked into our ground floor room which had a patio area leading directly into the swimming pool.. AMAZING! (You get direct sunshine onto your patio from about 3 pm) Onto the main hotel, the main pool is a lovely sized area with plenty of sunbeds with lots more around the beach itself. Really good pool bar with lots of choice and friendly staff. I could go on and on but I'll try to summarize.. Pros Really clean hotel Really hard working friendly staff in EVERY location Excellent choice of food No problems at all Nicest place I've ever stayed so far Cons Small issue would be smoke does drift inside of an evening from the outside smoking area. A lot of guests smoked by doorways

Arina Beach Resort is a perfect place to spend family vacation. We stayed for 10 days and everything was just outstanding. All the pools, bars and even all inclusive restaurant were great. Staff was so friendly all the time and they very like the kids. We also visited the hotel spa. Prices are a but higher, but still ok, but the service provided is worth the money. I order one massage for 1,5 hour and my masseur Katerina was so good that I even visited another time. I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to enjoy peaceful, relaxing holidays!

Very nice place to relax and the spa therapist asked me what parts i feel tension the most which is great. I enjoyed the attention to detail when adjusting various parts of the body and stretching or massaging based on what’s needed, and in a way that can actually help your pain points feel better. In comparison to a massage from a place like massage envy, my experience here felt way more therapeutic and would visit it again and again.

This hotel is basically a paradise on earth. The staff are the friendliest, happiest most attentive people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. I would like to say a special thanks to Maria who works in the arcade bar. She has never stopped smoking, never stopped working and never been anything less than the best (even without air con on 32degree days!!!). Another very special shout-out to Albi who works in the main bar near the Ariadne bar. He remembers your name, your favourite drink and all your best stories when you take up his time at the bar. This hotel is luck to have them as staff, if I owned a business I would steal all of them That said, every single member of the team is incredible in every way and I don't think my words will do their kindness, professionalism and this hotel and scenaries beauty justice. I can only say, dust off your passport and get yourself here! P.S. we're coming back next year if the energy bill hike doesn't kill us!!
