Arminda Hotel and SPA
Ranked #28 of 172 Hotels in Hersonissos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We stayed two weeks, as mentioned the reception staff are fabulous, also we had vegetarians in our party,restaurant staff and the chef couldn't do enough to ensure they had something on the menu every night, sometimes to order and the food was lovely. We were in what was the old block, but it was really nice. Its a short walk to the nearest town with lots of bars and restaurants, and lots of stores selling local produce. What really made the holiday was the locals, they're genuinely lovely people. Sometimes we went down to the pool about 10 am and still got a sunbed, there was water polo, darts, water aerobics and an really professional looking yoga class. The only thing I would do different is to plan some outings, we had a lazy two weeks we came back really refreshed. I'm sure we will be back.

Room Tip: Don't get a room overlooking the road, its quite busy and its to the front of the hotel.

Very helpful, polite hotel's stuff. They speak in Russian, English, German, Greek and other languages. Great Greek cuisine in the restaurant tree times a day (this all inclusive hotel). Great Animation team. Not far from the see, but if you like a good long sandy beaches you will not find it in Hersonissos. Also hotel doesn't have their own beach, but you can not officialy use the neighborhood hotels beds by the marina. The hotel is 15min walk to Hersonissos center with souvenir, beach shops, teenager parties. And 15 min walk away from center of Stalida beach town.
I am 30 and spent 7 day vacation in the hotel with my parents (they are in their late 50's). The hotel was swarming with young couples with small kids. Those who are couples with kids might enjoy staying in the resort more than those who don't have kids.

Room Tip: rooms with the sea view are quitter

Nice welcome at reception, directed to our rooms. Late arrival due to flight delays missed AI (all inclusive) bar, but a meal was thankfully saved for us. Only AI drinks wine brandy oozo beer; fizzy soft drinks. Cocktails extra €2. Roof top bar, beer only, in AI. Food fantastic and plentyfull. Room clean tidy quiet, some noise from roof top bar. No bottle water. Is close to beach, but payment is expected per sun bed. Shade limited. 2 pools. Would be nice if the smaller less shade top pool was made adults only. Get up early to place towel on sun lounger..

Arrived home yesterday having spent a lovely fortnight at the Arminda Hotel. The staff were all friendly and we were made to feel very welcome- we would particularly like to mention the ladies at reception- we felt as if we'd made some very good friends-nothing was too much trouble. Every evening we spent time in the Roof Bar-we went up on our first day to have a cocktail, made by the wonderful Stavros and to look at the amazing views. Every evening after that we went up to have a selection of cocktails-Stavros was able to make whatever cocktail was asked for and had invented some of his own- a delicious SS(? can't remember the rest) once I'd tasted this I had one every night and have been given the recipe so that I can try to make my own at home. The only negative about the holiday was nothing to do with the staff at the hotel- the Thomson / First Choice reps were a total waste of time Matt and Jess (why 2?) we saw them on day 1 at the welcome meeting but after that if we wanted to see them we had to go to the hotel next door-they made us feel like the poor relations. We would love to return to the hotel but we will NOT be using Thomson

Room Tip: All rooms seem good but it might be quieter away from the swimming pool area

We visited Crete for the first time, a place with lot of sun, nice beaches and full of history. We choose Arminda among a numerous hotels of Chersonisos because it seemed to offer a friendly and relaxing environment, in a central spot of Crete and we found exactly what we were looking for and much more! A perfectly organized hotel, with tasty food and amazing staff. We would like to thank everyone for our stay there and of course recommend it without hesitation!

We stayed at the Arminda for 2 weeks arriving on the 19th June. Cannot fault the place. Excellent cleanliness,plenty of food and drink. The staff on reception were extremely helpful. A short walk down to the beach (beds were €5 each and umbrella the same) there is a little walkway. Busses stop outside the hotel regularly - €1.60 each to go into Herrisonis where a taxi would be €7.00 one way. A short 10 min walk to Stalis where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. If you find stuff to complain about here you must be very difficult to please.
