“A friendly hotel with great sea views”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

We would definitely recommend Arlen Beach Hotel, it has a great location on the seafront and on the fringes of the main street and seafront restauraunt and bars.
This was one of four hotels we stayed in during our visit and was by far the best in many ways. The room was large and clean, the kitchen was well equipped and the balcony was big and usable. Air con and the use of the safety deposit box was free of charge and every person got a daily complementary bottle of water. They also had a good sized swimming pool and outdoor garden area.
The owners were very friendly and helpful, always on hand and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Cretan welcome basket was a lovely treat and we appreciated this touch.

within metres of the nearest bars and restaurants, but set on the beach front in a peaceful location, being a small hotel we found we had the pool to ourselves most days no dreaded getting up early to reserve a sunbed!. it is a wonderful family run hotel were the owners aim to please nothing was to much trouble, and everything you could possibly need is provided, free wifi, excellent views, clean rooms, free safe, no hidden extras, and the welcome tray provided was superb and thoroughly enjoyed, i honestly cant fault anything about this hotel if you want a bit of tranquility but within walking distance of all that hersonissos has to offer then look no further. we will be back.

My niece and I spent 5 wonderfull days there, by the pool and next to
the sea.
Though, it is a little difficult to find it if following the owner's
directions, the hotel is located in a nice, quiet spot, by the sea only
a few minutes away from the croweded cosmopolitan Hersonisos.
The hotel is nice and clean (much better than shown in the photograph),
the owners friendly and polite, ready to help at any occasion.
We are seriously thinking to come back next summer.
Thank you Jannis and Maria!

We made a last minute booking and it was great. Clean rooms, very big and spacious, close to the beach, fantastic view to the Cretan Sea from our own big balcony, good pool and two minutes to shops, rstaurant etc. Very nice service, too, we got a transfer from and to heraklion at reasonable prices as we didn´t have a car.

We will be coming back!

I would strongly recommend this hotel - stayed for a month with my wife and 2-year old son. We received such a warm welcome and hospitality, I will definitely come back for another month. The hotel located in a quiet block with no restaurants or bars that disturb at night. But it will take you less than a minute to walk to a district of entertainment and nice beaches. The pool, breakfasts, wifi are great! The Seaview is breathtaking!
Special thanks to a lovely couple who run the hotel - you made our stay unforgettable!

My friend and I stayed for 5 nights. We were looking for somewhere quietish during the day, close to the beach, good quality hotel and pool but also close to the night-life and restaurants for the evening. This hotel hit all these factors. The hotel pool was amazing, as was the service by the couple who own the hotel. The room was massive, clean and with a nice balcony with sea view. One minor issue was that there was only air conditioning in the bedroom - so the lounge could get quite hot – but the bedroom was lovely and cool so sleeping was no problem and we didn’t spend much time in the room during the day. The weather was fantastic. We had a great holiday.

We stayed in Arlen Beach Hotel for a week and the experience was amazing. The hotel is located just next to the sea and has a beautiful view to the Cretan Sea. The apartment was very clean and had the necessary equipment to prepare our meals. What was more important is that it was very close to the lively part of the area but at the same time at a very relaxing spot to next to the sea. The owners of the hotel, an extremely kind couple were always available to assist and gave us all the details and the spots to visit during our stay. We would like to come back in the future!!
