Ranked #11 of 13 Hotels in Paleokastritsa
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Christos and Katerina are very friendly and welcoming. Katerina is a great cook and makes eating in very good value for money. There are better but more expensive restaurants in Paleokastritsa, but if you are on a budget as we were, then you can have fresh and very tasty traditional Greek home cooking every night you're there.The bar prices are very good and Christos does a fabulous barbecue to order, and there is also musical entertainment.
The accommodation is very basic, but we had a twin self catering set of rooms with 2 balconies, and beautiful views of the sea,olive groves and local hilltop monastery. As we were there at the beginning of the season, the apartments were not fully occupied, and so we had the swimming pool almost to ourselves most of the time.If you want a quiet holiday,go at the very beginning or end of the season, as we were told it gets very busy and noisy during the high season.

Room Tip: Ask in advance for a room overlooking the sea and not the pool.

I came here with my friend Valerie last year, we were immediately made to feel welcome and greeted by the owners Kristos and Katriana. This a family run place and you are very much made to feel like part of the family. The other guests were all lovely too and we all got along great spending many nights together enjoying Katriana's homemade meals which were beautiful and entertainment from Kristos with music and dancing. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it to others!

Paleokastritsa is a beautiful place but please pay a bit extra,you really do get what you pay for!!!

On arrival I proceeded to the 'reception area' and was met by a member of staff who greeted me with the well known Greek meeting phrase "Name". I can't stress how vile this place is!!!! Ant and silverfish INFESTED rooms,they got into everything! The shower/toilet area was not even third world standard! Tiny tiled box room with a leaking toilet,a shower head that would just blow off randomly and unless you put a bottle of bleach down the drain every shower i'd describe it as showering in S..T
The most worrying thing was when my girlfriend and I returned one night and we saw this bug on the kitchen wall!!! Showed my Greek friends and they had never seen one before.
Upon further investigation I found out it was a disease ridden house centipede!!
Yuk,and wait till you see one running at the speed of light into your bedroom!!!!
If you have any questions just ask.
Happy 'Clean' travels.

Room Tip: It's a take take fake tourist trap!! I would only do a day trip there!! I went for two weeks sev...

Had a great time, the local area is lovely with stunning scenery, Olives. Grapes, Figs and Oranges growing everywhere.
There are a selection of beaches at the bottom of the hill along with several restaurants a cash point and some shops but not too many.
The place is run by a pint size Greek Basil Fawlty, Christos and his charming wife it really felt like we were staying with a Greek family, we ate with them and had some lovely meals that were really good value.
The accommodation was basic but clean and comfortable and such a low price.
Will definitely be going back.

I am very used to travelling to Greece and therefore am familiar with how basic facilities are when self-catering. The room we had at these apartments wasn't too good. The bathroom had lots of mould in the grouting; the toilet leaked onto the floor and therefore the bathroom constantly smelled strongly of urine; the drainage in the bathroom was blocked, causing the bathroom to flood when we took a shower (we took the drainage apart and unblocked it, which wasn't pleasant). In a nutshell, it simply wasn't clean and wasn't maintained very well. Many of the sockets didn't work and neither did the TV. There was clearly a 'click' going on with guests that returned on a regular basis and it is very true what other guests have said about Christos clearly not being happy if you eat out at other establishments - he becomes very cool towards you to say the least. Whilst we were there, one couple left and paid to stay at another hotel because they were terrified to come back and face him because he had become aggressive with them after they didn't attend his BBQ. On the other hand, there were other guests who returned over and over again, and couldn't say a wrong word about them - so who knows? The poolside was very clean, quiet and relaxing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view if possible, not overlooking the pool

on arrival we was greeted by christo and katarina the owners of the arriana, they took us to our sc apartment which was very clean and tidy and fresh, before choosing this place i looked at the reviews on trip advisor which were mixed, i cannot understand the reviews that have been written in such bad taste as myself and my 17 year old son had the most amazing time with these people, the food was cooked freshly every day the traditional dishes were absolutely amazing , every dish tried was tasty, we stayed for two weeks and had many fun nights of entertainment supplied by christos and katarina, we enjoyed the greek nights where we was taught the greek dancing by a close friend of christos, the music played and sung by christos actually made our eyes water as he was just beautiful to listen to , we sampled food from other restaurants of which was good also but not as nice as katarinas home cooking she truly is an amazing cook, they really do know how to look after you when you are with them, we met some life long friends along the way , i cannot fault this place at all its well worth the money it was very good value, please do not listen to the bad comments as this is not the case go see for your self like we did you will be amazed xxxxxxx

Room Tip: the room we had was sufficient for our needs cant complain about anything

My partner and I arrived very late in the evening and were received with a lovely warm welcome from both Katarina and Christos. Almost from the very beginning they make you feel as though you are one of the family. The next morning we had a good look around the area to get our bearings. Unfortunately as we had arrived at the start of the rainy season we did have a lot of rain and thunder and lightening. This did not put us off going out. Katarina told us about the old Donkey trail to Lakones, and as the weather was good for walking we headed up and found spectacular views. On days that it was to wet to go out we joined other guests In the bar area, really got to know Katarina and Christos and had a lot of laughs. The Accommodation is suitable for basic needs and you do get what you pay for. What you have to remember is that although it may be a little dated its their culture not ours, they don't have all the mod cons that we take for granted back home. The food was out of this world and I think they could cut back on their servings but everything we ate was bought fresh every day. A couple of the guest did go out for dinner on separate occasions and were really ill through the night and as they were only there for a week it spoilt their holiday so we decided to stay and eat with Christos and Katarina. All in all we spent 2 weeks at the Arianna, had 8 days of rain as I already mentioned 6 days of intense sun and had a total blast. Met some wonderful people and yes I would go back, not year in year out as some people do but probably every second year. It was a holiday that I thought was going to be a disaster but turned out to be one of the best iv ever had
