The Arsinoe Beach is a small, 5-floor hotel built in 1980. From the moment you cross the threshold the atmosphere is, some might say, rather gloomy. The place certainly does not exude a great feeling of 'warmth'. It would have been nice to see some cheerful colours, new furniture and welcoming facilities but, in all truth, that is not what we found. The long lobby is particularly dark and not very tastefully decorated. The red sofas and armchairs have seen better days, just like the rest of the furniture. At least you can get a breath of fresh air at the outdoor swimming pool, but here again, there is a hitch. It is hardly the swimming pool that you dream of finding on your holidays: in addition to the narrow design of the pool itself, the deckchairs set around it are not the most comfortable. Luckily, flowers liven things up a bit and help make up (slightly) for the downsides. The second outdoor swimming pool is reached by passing through the hotel building. It is more peaceful, but the deckchairs, few and far between, are in a pitiful condition. Next to the hotel's third and last swimming pool can be found the gym. The latter has no windows and needs to be freshened up, in every sense of the term. The weights machines are outdated and the 'massage' and beauty treatment rooms (some of which are fitted with bathtubs that would not look out of place in thalassotherapy) seem to have fallen into disuse. Indeed, some of these rooms look as though they have never even been used at all. At the back, the whirlpool bath is positioned just under an especially noisy fan, and the setting is really nothing to write home about.
