“Crazy Nights - Dirty Mornings”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Arcadia is a nightclubbing center of summer Odessa. There's plenty of clubs for different wallets and once you come there with friends you will have a good time. Scenery is great with Black Sea, beach and very tall houses sprawling on the hills overlooking the bay. The place is always full of people from evenings to early mornings and is patrolled by police so its relatively safe. However if you walk a bit farther from the center alleys you find yourself in almost total darkness with smelly surroundings and drunks all over smoking weed or drinking vodka. Its all the same in any clubbing resort but here the contrast is kinda striking. Still would recommend for younger people as a great place for night out.

“Tacky and Loud”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Terrible outdoor night club meets county fair. At night it is over run with prostitutes and sketchy guys accompanied by ear piercing ancient techno music.

“A place for the elite”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Arcadia as a beach district is exceptional. A small town in itself, it caters for everything that you may need. However, no reflection on the place but it attracts a poseur element that didn't make me want to stay for very long. The beach isn't as good as Lanzheron. If clubbing is your thing on the beach at summer time, this is your place. If it isn't, it's just an irritating beach resort.

“stay away from arcadia”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

its a fancy night spot . but the police are waiting for you the tourist to do the smallest thing wrong . too hit you with a fine . they police seem too be maverick and can do as they like . my son was fined 200 uah for smoking outside a cafe. as the police said he must not stop if he was smoking .. you can smoke if you are walking . he was taken too the police station told pay the fine or face a bigger fine in court . he was told too put money on the table and turn arround 4 police came in and went out and the money was taken . my advice just stay away . be warned

“What is all the fuss about this place !”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 via mobile

Admittedly I came here in March, but I thought it was a [--], ok there are beautiful swanky apartments on the hill to stay in, (which I didn`t) but the walk to the `beach` is depressing, everything in need of investment, the `bars` near the beach were horrible, why would anyone want to come here ! Maybe the whole place does rock in the summer but if people rave about this place then I would imagine their sights are set very low. I would prefer to go to Ibiza or even maybe Brighton on the South Coast of England, Arkadia..
yuk !
