"Second visit even better than the first"
18/7/2016 Christopher C (Tripadvisor)

Just returned from our second visit to Areti Hotel. Having stayed before, it was like going home and returning to our family. Maria, Joanna, Stefano, Teo and the two children were just so welcoming it really was like visiting family. We arrived on our wedding anniversary and were greeted with a room decked out in decorations, candles, flowers, wine and chocolates. The room looked beautiful and set the tone for a truly marvellous two week stay. The hotel is perfect. Located close enough to the village to be convenient but far away enough to be peaceful and quiet. Facilities are great in the rooms with the addition of kettles and cups this year. Furnishings are typical Greek simplicity and that is the charm of this family run hotel. The pool is wonderful, never crowded, and always a sun bed free to relax on with great support and service from the pool bar. Snacks are available at the pool bar all day and having sat and watched Stefano make these, they are all freshly prepared and made with his normal attention to the small details - the right amount of olive oil, oregano, crisps etc etc. Breakfast is great, and is my favourite meal of the day. Simple continental buffet, there's plenty of choice with pastries, fruit, breads, cheeses, meats, juice, coffee/teas, cereals and of course Greek yogurt. If you're not completely delighted with it, you're far too fussy and should probably stay somewhere else. This hotel is wonderful, but is made excellent by the people. The family are the most welcoming and friendly you would ever wish to meet. When we visit next, we'll be visiting old friends - that's how they make you feel ! Can't wait to go back for my third stay .....

La gentillesse du personnel. Nous sommes arrivés très tard, vers 1h du matin et avons été très bien accueillis. Le personnel nous a renseigné sur les points à visiter dans l île. Le jour de notre départ , nous avions notre avion à minuit et avons pu profiter de la piscine très agréable et avons pu prendre une douche avant notre départ. Je recommande vraiment cet hotel pour la gentillesse du personnel.

"Come una mamma!!!"

Abbiamo soggiornato per la prima volta in questo hotel ed è stata un'esperienza veramente piacevole. La titolare, Maria, ci ha accolto come una mamma e per tutta la durata del nostro soggiorno era disponibile a soddisfare qualsiasi domanda e ci ha dato dei consigli per risparmiare qualche soldo, ci ha indicato tutto quello che c'era da vedere e con che mezzo farlo. Hotel carino e molto pulito. Piscina niente male.

"Fantastic Hotel Areti Staff and Services"
10/8/2016 Slavka (Booking)

Location of the hotel - very quiet area of the village only 5 minutes to the beach and the same distance to the bus stop for the buses to Fira from where all other buses depart. Very close to the village centre with shops, restaurants, close to the open air cinema. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious, well equipped, with balconies, with wifi and air conditioning both perfectly working at all times. Cleaning service is regular. Breakfast is great - selection of breads, butters, jams, cakes, eggs, hams, vegetables, etc. every day something different added - try the yogurt with peaches... Swimming pool is a real pool for swimming, surrounded by beds and greenery, specially nice in the evening - nicely lighted with stars above. The outside bar serves drinks and snacks during the day and night. Staff is fantastic, very friendly, helpful, ready to answer all questions, can arrange trips, provides maps, bus schedules. One can rely on their information and care all the time. There is a small library with interesting books and magazines in the lobby as well. We could not imagine better place to stay on the island and will return to the hotel for our next holiday.
