Whitewashed and cube-shaped, Arminda Hotel has been pressed from the Greek design mould. You'll find wrought-iron balconies and splashes of colour inside and out. Two saltwater pools and a separate kids' pool means there's plenty of fun alongside. A little further - a short walk - and you've got the beach. Hersonissos and Stalis are both a short drive down the road, and the bus stop in front of the hotel makes getting there a breeze.

2nd Visit and enjoyed it even more.
My wife and I visited the Arminda for a second time after enjoying ourselves so much on our first trip. This time we took two elderly relatives knowing that they would be comfortable. We were there for two weeks leading up to the close down. Briefly: We all enjoyed the food. Always something to please all four of us and once again we succumbed to the excellent sweets. Waistline beware!!! The drinks whilst not wide ranging on alcohol were adequate for us. Make sure you splash out on one or two cocktails though they are excellent. The rooms were the ones we requested and were clean and well maintained. Air conditioning worked perfectly. The pools were clean despite Autumn leaves beginning to fall. We enjoyed mixing with the variety of nationalities especially a great group from Sweden who made us realise how similar we all are rather than how different. Thanks for your company Per, Sissi, Jonny and company. 'Don't mention the war!' You made our holiday special. The sea is a short walk, take goggles the fish life is wonderful! The staff were excellent, very attentive. One of the ladies with us had a sore throat and one of the waiting staff chase round to make sure she had an adequate supply of honey and lemon. She loved it. Special mention has to go to the bar staff: Michael, Maria and Angelo. They are a wonderful team who make you feel very special with their friendly service and chats. The snack bar kept us well supplied all day long. The biscuits are very 'moreish'. DON'T use the tour operators for trips, use the local shops in Hersonnissos or Stallis. You will get them for half price! Spinalonga is well worth a visit. The management were wonderful, one of our elderly companions left a drawer full of clothes behind and the hotel had them posted on to us in the UK and would not accept payment for the postage. Thank you Eleni Kapetanaki you are a credit to the Arminda. Oh. I had better say.....the Russians STILL have no humour, smiles or manners! We loved the Arminda and the fact that it is a short walk from the towns but far enough to be away from the idiots.More
The hotel was clean and tidy, the room was a good size on the ground floor. Cleaned every day, sort of, had a stained sheet on one bed, and the sides not dusted or wiped down all week. The hairdryer didn't work and the shower head holder was broke. The maid did manage to remove a silver chain and pendant too, was not impressed ! Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was ok and there was lots of it, I've never tried so many different concotions in a meal. Not all drinks are included, only beer, wine, ouzo, raki, brandy and soft drinks. There was a few loud Russians and Germans, with their towels firmly in place. The two pools are a good size and kept clean. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach, which was lovely and clean, and a beautiful clear sea.More

Good room size, clean and tidy. Small bath, even I had trouble laying down in it and I'm only 5'4. Room cleaned everyday, my only grumble though was the maid smoked in our room, and put the dog ends down the sink - which wasn't very nice, when you don't smoke yourself.!! Let down in the all inclusive part, as only wine, beer, soft drinks and raki, ouzo and brandy free. Everything else you had to pay for. Food was very delicious and the desserts yummy, but got boring towards the end of our stay as repeated menu. Loads of arrogant Russians about with out of control children, who didn't care what they got up to especially in the pool area. Good location and within easy walking distance of shops/restaurants. Would recommend to others but wouldn't really go back myself.More
My husband and I stayed at the Arminda 13th June this year for 2 weeks...in one word it was 'Fantastic'...Staff are very friendly and attentive, everywhere is so clean and tidy, we found it a very relaxing hotel. The food is plentiful with lots of different dishes to chose from....and the desserts are very very good...maybe 10 or more different ones to chose from, the snack bar also has a good selection of food. It's also just a very short walk to the beach, we often walked into Hersonisos along the coastal path...you pass some beautiful beaches on the way...We loved it that much that we are going back for another 2 weeks in 3 days time...cant wait :)More

would not recommend!
The reception is off putting, but the reception staff are friendly and generally have very good English (Agnes especiallt) Our room was clean and large, balcony overlooking pool The roof bar is very pleasant, as is the snack bar, nice place to sit and drink. Pools clean, umbrellas - if you can find one to stay up you are lucky. The ALL INCLUSIVE is a joke. Beer, oozo, brandy, and reiki, white and red wine, soft drinks. Lower pool bar only beer and soft drinks, roof bar the same. Snack bar/upper pool bar has the above list, roof bar and snack bar have drinks for sale. No cocktails included in AI. Food in snack bar poor unless you like pastry. Food never hot enough - microwave available to reheat food! Restaurant - breakfast only decent food is freshly made omelettes - tinned fruit available. Lunch and evening selections poor - noisy environment they clean plates in the restaurant! Hotel full when we were there 12th to 19th Sept, only 18/20 British, the rest Russian/German with A LOT of children under the age of 6/8!! Booked through Thompsons, but it is a First Choice hotel, rep based next door at the Nana Beach - Dan - not interested in Arminda residents, showed up for a brief introduction meeting, gave no real information, never came on the site again except to put up the pick up times. Hotel is nearer to Stalis than Chersonisos.More
