“Reasonable price for a family room”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and accommodating to your needs. The buffet breakfast was value for money, family room spacious and most with seaview, walking distance from the beach and a very big pool. Not a wide choice of restaurants in the area and you definitely need to rent a car for sight seeing! I found the hotel transfer from the port over priced!!

nice and cosy place with a fine architecture... rooms are spacious and practical.

breakfast is (for greek standards) fine, the pool bar is ok- food is mediocre but ok.
there are fine restaurants nearby, therefore: no problem.

the place is nearby one of the best windsurf spots: that means: "it is supposed to be a little windy"!
we enjoyed a lot and well be back 4 sure ;-)

Room Tip: upper floor, sea view

Average mark can get acquamarina for our 2 night stay.
It's a family run hotel,but needs the support of an expert.i will not say it was a 4* hotel.

Staff we're very friendly, supportive in each question / query.also breakfast served was nice due to the price and the facilities someone could wait for the hotel. we paid 60€ for each night. Free wifi is something I want to mentioned as important.
Hotel needs renovation and be more careful about facilities.
Besides renovation,and emphasis to cleanness of rooms, overall ,it was an average stay.

Room Tip: Get a room close to the pool, cause the view to the pool/beach is nice Also close there is the bar...

I was not planning to stay there but I visited the hotel after the suggestion of the owner of the hotel I was staying in Parikia. Far from the Parikia and Naousa, it is a resort placed in an amazing beach, New Golden beach. If you want to relax and enjoy the sun and the beach it is the best possible option! If you want to be close to the city choose something else is not the case. At the end we decided to stay there for two nights and with our motorbike we could easily go anywhere.
Tip: If you are a windsurf this is the spot!Two windsurfing schools at the beach.

Room Tip: Water front rooms

We were two families with two small kids aged 3 and 4 and some people aged between 73 to 78. Prior to booking we asked about the location if it is near transport, restaurants and other holiday activities because of our circumstances and needs. We were told that everything was nearby and it is very ideal for kids and older people. Transport facilities from the port of Paroikia were runnung every half an hour from the port dropping us off very close to the hotel.
Therefore all nine of us used the bus on our arrival, based on the information given. However the bus dropped us off in the middle of nowhere by a sign board saying 150 meters to Acquamarina. There was no sign of the hotel but having no other alternative, we started walking with two children crying and three older people aching and carrying 9 suitcases. The distance from the bus stop was between 500-600 meters and NOT 150 meters. We were exhausted. One car driver volunteered to help with some suitcases as he said the hotel was very far. We had to accept his offer and trust him giving him our suitcases as we had no alternative.

On arriving at the hotel, eventually, we realised that there were no restaurants or supermarkets nearby. We were disappointed because we had two young children with us and we would need some place to buy daily items i.e. milk etc. There was just one other hotel.
The Reception assured us that their driver would take us anywhere we wanted. On that understanding we signed our arrival.
However this was time consuming and costly. Every time we had to pay 20 Euro to go to the nearby little town to buy the necessary. Going to eat meant two separate journeys because we were nine and it cost us 40 Euro to go to Piso Livadhi which was about 1 or 2 kilometers away.

The children were bored because there was nothing for them to do and the wind was so strong that the sand was hitting them in the eyes.

On the second day we approached them wanting to leave but they would not compromise. In the end we stayed 3 more days but they made our stay very uncomfortable. We used their restaurant to eat every night to avoid the high cost of going to the nearby town, but the portions were so tiny even though the cooking was good enough. The service in those three days was even more terrible. It was on the understanding that if we stay 3 more days, they would try to help us with transport. However, on the day we booked to leave and needed a taxi they refused to provide their taxi service saying that the driver was unavailable when he was sitting there, ignoring us. They also said there was nobody available in the nearest village so we had to start walking to the bus stop, 600 meters away, again.....

AN ISOLATED PLACE. NOT IDEAL FOR FAMILIES AT ALL NO SUPERMARKETS AROUND AND NO MEANS OF TRANSPORT AVAILABLE. YOU NEED A TAXI TO GO ANYWHERE (THAT IS IF THERE IS ONE AVAILABLE, YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR HALF AN HOUR FOR ONE IF THERE IS ONE AVAILABLE AND AT A HIGH COST OF COURSE)
YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO RELY ON WHATEVER THE RESTAURANT HAS TO OFFER FOR THE DAY. BEAR IN MIND THE VERY SMALL PORTIONS.
A VERY POOR SERVICE FROM THE RECEPTION ESPECIALLY THE MANAGERS (OWNERS) EXCEPT A COUPLE OF WAITRESSES. NO MAINTENANCE AND NOT ENOUGH WATER FOR A SHOWER AT TIMES.
MOST IMPORTANTLY THE WIND IS VERY STRONG ON THE BEACH THAT THE SAND HITS YOUR FACE VERY STRONGLY AND YOUR EYES. FEELS LIKE NEEDLES! THAT'S ALL ANYONE NEEDS!

Room Tip: Rooms in the centre of the complex are better to avoid any snakes coming from the windows

Located few metres from New Golden Beach in Paros Island, Acqua Marina Resort is a small, beautiful and quiet structure to spend a holiday in Paros, Greece.
We spent two weeks in July 2012 (a family of 2 adults and 2 children of 9 and 5 years old); we've been upgraded for free to a Suite (sea view) just because we booked well in advance. So we got a real apartment instead of a big room! My advice is to book on B&B basis - like we did - as there are less expensive places nearby for lunch/dinner (the internal small pool-resaurant is OK even with a limited course list / menue). I rented from Italy through the Internet a car for all the period so that we could see the whole island (+ Antiparos); the car is also useful to go out for dinner in the different villages and to reach beaches without wind when the Meltemi is getting so strong that doesn't allow to stay in the beach in front of the Hotel. The beach is really beautiful, clean (Blue Flag 2012) with crystal clear blue water, perfect for both families with children and for windsurfers (which I'm not...). The room was clean, the breakfast buffet was OK (full: continental and/or british, as you like). The hotel pool is clean and really big. I would strongly recommend this place for both couples and families.

This resort is amazing to spend the holiday. I stayed there for 10 days in the month of july. The location is great, about 40 km from the island "capital" the city of Parikia where the ferry will leave you. Is is easy to reach the hotel by car or by taxi . (TIP : is you are just 2 people without a car try to find a taxi that goes in the same direction, because it will be very difficult to find a taxi that will take just thje 2 of you on the other side of the island.) In front of the hotel there is a private beach of this resort and it is not crowded, but if you want to have some fun you can go to POUNDA BEACH and find in the same place small souveniers shop, a beach club and a lot of people who party on day light.
The rooms are very clean, they change the towels every day and clean the room. There are also rooms with sea view, with terrace. We stayed on the 4 building and we had a room with sea view and it was nice. In the room there is a mini fridge also.
The food is great, especially beackfast and you can ask any time room service :).
Next to the resort thee is a windsurf club if you are interested and the weather is perfect for this.
I kindly recomand this resort for everyone, is perfect for couples, families or just a group of friends, you can spend a quiet holiday or you can also have some fun. And if you go do not miss Pounda Beach.

Hitchhiking works very good on the island :)

Enjoy!
