Arminda Hotel & Spa

Low-rise and peaceful are the watchwords for this little Cretan hotel in easy reach of the beach.

This small, whitewashed hotel has a couple of pools and a low-key activities and entertainment portfolio.

It’s quite an away-from-it-all place, though the sandy beach is just a few minutes’ walk away. The local bus can take you to laidback Stalis in about 10 minutes, or the livelier Hersonissos in about 20 minutes.

Very nice hotel

All-inclusive basis and good value for money. Very nice hotel for families, nice activities for children. Relaxing atmosphere, good food (and a lot of food…), welcoming staff and good service, so we had a great vacation over all. The biggest disadvantage of the hotel is the salty water in the swimming pools and in the water park. It was very unpleasant for our eyes (and mouths) through the whole vacation. Another disadvantage is the simplicity of the room and old furniture in the room, but we didn’t spend so much time in the room, so it was OK overall.More

Excellent place to stay if you want a quiet break

We stayed with some friends and the place is great if you don't want to be close to resorts although a 7euro taxi will get you there . We found it a little isolated but with great food and amenities onsite I would certainly stay again. There is a real mix of nationalities at the hotel which is great for people watching. We got an upgrade and had a sea view with a large room. We needed the air con as the heat is constant in July. The all you can eat deal is really good value with some fantastic evening choices and allows you to try different food you may not normally order. The range of drinks is limited and you have to pay extra for cocktails and branded beers/spirits. The staff are so committed to helping you have a wonderful holiday I can not praise them highly enough. We had a couple of treatments in the spa and would recommend it but the prices are not cheap. All in all a great place to stay.More

Great holiday

This was our first all inclusive holiday. From the time we arrived in the hotel we were madeto feel very welcome. Our check in was quick and easy. Showed directly to our room and although we were late arriving there was food waiting for us in the restaurant. Rooms were cleaned and towels change daily. Food was exceptional. Pool area was always clean and tidy. Load of sunbed and parasols never needed to reserve any at any time of the day. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Falcon holiday rep was less than helpful but the enthusiasm of the hotel staff more than made up for this. Would highly recommend this hotel.More

Perfect Honeymoon

I spent a week in this hotel with my wife for our honeymoon. The hotel is excellent and truly matches the 4 star standard. There are three pools and plenty of activities to do within the hotel. The hotel caters brilliantly for families also, with on site water park and children's entertainment. I'm hoping to return here for a family holiday in the near future. More

First time all inclusive

Exzellent experience. Food exzellent everyday a different selection. Very clean. Staff helpful and very friendly and always smiling. Always sun beds available. Quiet. Even though there are lots of families we travelled as a couple and it was very quiet by the pool because there are 3 pools of which one is a water park for children. Very close to beach. Excellent spa on siteMore
