I stayed at the Bardis Hotel last year and again this summer. Dorita was as lovely and welcoming as ever and together with her daughter Angelika and another lady (sorry didn't get her name) looked after their guests and hotel to a very high standard. I was made to feel very welcome - as I was travelling solo, this was much appreciated.
My room was a good size, had everything I needed and was cleaned every day. The shower had good pressure and there was always hot water. The fabulous pool and bar/dining area were always clean and tidy, try one of Dorita's jacket potatoes, delicious! I cannot fault this hotel at all, highly recommend to everyone as it is in a great location at a good price for B&B.
The beach is a few minute walk round the corner. There are lots of lovely tavernas in Arillas, I recommend Graziella, Brouklis, Vavilas and Kostas on the beach. If the 2 bars are not to your liking, try the bar at the Akti Arilla, lovely chilled out place.
