“good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Good value for money hotel, very good location just few steps to the beach, good breakfast.
We stayed in an old part of the hotel, far from the swimming pool and the breakfast area. They did not give to us the remote control of the air conditioner. After our request, they tried to readjust the temperature and they finally gave us the remote control. The room was clean, but without any soap, shampoo, or hair dryer. The entrance door had a problem with the close and opening system, and some of the sockets did not work. However, the balcony was large enough with sea view, but you have all the time visual contact with your neighbors. We usually had our diner at the seafront. We recommended the Hook bar and restaurant where you can have very good, fresh fish (the owner is fisherman) and seafood. Moreover, it is advisable to visit Oia for the marvelous sun sunset, the Nea Kameni trip is also an interesting experience, due to the big volcano, the wonderful colored rocks and the fine sight. Last but not least, Fira is the best when it comes to nightlife, since there are numerous clubs and souvenir shops.

Room Tip: The rooms that are close to the swimming pool are the best

Visiting Santorini means renting a car and going every day on another beach/ place to visit. So you need a clean, all basic services hotel for a good night sleep and a breakfast. Arion Bay is perfect for this: clean rooms, peaceful hotel, decent breakfast and great service: Ilias is a true Greek - knowing all the best places on the island, good car rental company. We enjoyed our one week holiday - next time for 2 weeks!

What a fantastic place to stay, Elias is the most genuine man and really makes your holiday one to remember. The hotel is clean with a lovely swimming pool and right on the beach. The breakfasts are brilliant, everything you could want, scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, cereals, greek yoghurt, cheese, breads etc to start your day along with the wonderful Katerina always there to welcome you with a wonderful warm smile.
Tanya the lady who works during the day, she is lijke a whirlwind! nothing is too much trouble and she makes the best frappes ever!
To start your evening, you must try Eilas' red wine, its devine then to eat try the tavernas to the left of the hotel, The Seaside - lovely chicken souvlaki and Lamb in the bag. Yammas - good. Vassilikos - fabulous risotto, never tasted anything like it! fresh fish and meat and ask the chef to make you a sauce, he will do anything you would like and top all of that the owners are warm and friendly and their daughter, the beautiful girl with the blond hair, is just wonderful. Almera - very professional, good food their calazone is very good. Then to end the night back to the hotel bar to spend the evening with Elias and friends for more wine and few shots along the way!
What a fabulous holiday, made by the wonderful people we met, we shall be returning next year.

Room Tip: B11 is top floor with a sea view. The A block rooms are very nice.

... you can check out any time you like but you can never leave ! There are these special moments in life, where you find places like this hotel and you would like to stay forever. The hotel run as family business makes you feel comfortable from the very first minute. Direct access to the beach and the sea, fantastic clean pool, absolutely friendly staff taking care of every guests wishes, Elias (one of the owners) has all the perfect tipps where to travel, what to see, where to eat, where to rent all kind of vehicles - he's the one who makes the difference. Together with Tanja, who takes care of th bar during the day, they build a perfect team. And in the evening Elias takes over the Bar business at the pool site and has a smile for everyone - and of course the perfect drinks. The night starts and ends here - just like paradise. We stayed here the fourth time in a row now - as Elias promised the first time " ... you will return ! ..." and we did. English, German ... no problem. We will be back every year - because this is pure holiday !

Room Tip: Ask for the "A - Rooms " with sea view
