Aquis Arina Sand


The Aquis Arina Sand is right on a long strip of beach, and the whole place is designed to make the most of the views. For starters, you get panoramic sea views from the hotel’s big pool, which has a huge terrace and pool bar. There’s also a beach bar serving snacks. Plus, the Ariadne buffet restaurant, which has white furnishings and wooden floors, looks out over the water. As for the rooms, they’re really contemporary, with neutral décor and sculpted furniture, and great views of the sea. And, if you want to head out, there are a few restaurants on the beachfront.

End of season family holiday

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Aquis Arina Sands. We travelled out on 24th October from East Mids. In our party was my husband and I, our 3 young children (4,5,6) and my mother. We had a really lovely relaxing holiday. This hotel definitely has a 5* location as it is on a beautiful beach, the catering staff worked relentlessly and always with a smile. The two people on the entertainment team were literally the worst I have ever come across. I walked into the kids club with my children and the children's rep didn't even lift her head up from her drawing pictures to say hello. She sat in there with her box of crayons and paper everyday and made it very clear she didn't want any children to interrupt her. However we hadn't booked intending to use a kids club so it wasn't a problem for us. We ate at the beach bar for lunch everyday and there was lovely fresh salad with pizza, chips, a pasta dish and meat cooked fresh on the griddle everyday so we were more than happy with that. The restaurant on the evening was quiet and peaceful, not a huge range of dishes but what they did serve was good. There is no entertainment on the evening that is worth writing about but with 3 very young children this was a plus for us as we could put them to bed without lots of noise. We stayed in the separate apartment block on the second floor, all of our rooms were next to us and the manager did offer to move us to ground floor if we preferred but we were enjoying our sea view so declined. I thought the mattresses were beautiful and comfortable, however on the sofa bed we changed it to the one underneath as it was sprung and the bed settee was very hard. The rooms were cleaned everyday and nice fresh clean towels. The bathrooms are very tired now and in desperate need of modernisation. There are quite a few areas of the hotel that need a bit of TLC now but really with the stunning beach, swimming pool and reception areas it didn't matter. We will definitely book this hotel again for the end of season next year. The satellite on the tv isn't great but we borrowed a film from reception every day which was a great service.More

traveled as a family in october for a week in the sun. the hotel was clean and all the staff are friendly and helpful and special thanks to all of them for helping us have a wonderful time.i would not hesitate to book this hotel again and make use of its facilities. There was a wide variety of food on offer all day, and meal times always offered a range of food that catered to all cultures.

Good food, Good beer, great weather and helpful smiling staff - what more could you want! also a big shout to all the fantastic people we metMore
