Overall the hotel is very good. The rooms are basic but always spotlessly clean and more than adequate. The restaurant, lounges and bars are modern spacious and very impressive. The hotel staff are by far its greatest asset. They were unfailingly friendly, attentive and helpful. There was always a great variety of food on offer, and all to high standard.

Excellent location - pool, sand/sea/terrace, for enjoying the warm weather and relaxing surroundings.
Convenient for bus to Heraklion or Agios Nikolaes.
Village nearby.
No one could complain about the quality and choice of food at any meal - even though we were there for the last week before winter closure and refurbishment, the buffet was still of a high standard right until the end.
Rooms are fairly basic -but who cares.
Mr Panayiotis Kozakos the Manager of the restaurant and Christina in the pool bar, exemplified the cheerful and helpful saff attitude.
Aircraft noise is not intrusive to most people - if you are hypersensitive get some ear plugs.
Excellent value and facilities

Had a fabulous holiday at the Aquis Arena Sand. The food was amazing and the staff all very friendly especially Mr Panayiotis Kozakos the Manager of the restaurant and Christina in the pool bar. The rooms are being refurbished this winter which will make the hotel perfect. The only gripe was the airport being so close and not getting much sleep for two nights with the sound the planes made when coming in to land. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

Most enjoyable holiday, the weather was such that we were able to sit outside during the evening. The buffet menu's were imaginative, with a good selection of both meat and fish for lunch and dinner, all meals were offered with a selection of local vegetables and salads.
The staff were friendly and cheerful, nothing was too much, regardless of the request.
The dining room was under the control of the Maitre/D, Panayiotis Kozakos, who was very efficient, welcoming and extremely courteous.
