“Very pleasant, simple hotel.”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

Stayed here recently, enjoyed the hospitality shown by owners and a nice view from the room ( 2nd floor ). Arillas is a very simple resort with quite a few hotels and restaurants all which seem to offer similar evening menus at similar prices. Horizon is considered by many to be the best hotel which may well be the case but there are some things we we not keen on. The beds: very uncomfortable, we hardly slept all the time we were there. The TV did not have any English channels, not even BBC world. At breakfast, the honey was left in a dish initially with no covering at all, GREAT if you are a wasp, and there were PLENTY! It was covered in a fashion a few days later with cling-film which wasn`t very successful. Why not put it in a jam-jar with a proper lid? Otherwise everything was pretty much as one would expect for this price. The rooms have good size fridge and an electronic safe, a/c which isn`t noisy in the room but can be irritating if you are on the balcony ( it blows hot air across the balcony ). Overall, we would recommend Horizon for a stay of up to a week, the beach is 30 yards from the hotel so not much effort required if that`s what you seek from a holiday.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is much better than 1st.

We will remember The Horizon Hotel for its amazing location, wonderful food and brilliant staff who truly understand what makes the difference between a good and a great hotel. Their attention to detail and genuine care for their guest's holiday experience is second to none. The hotel is immaculate but it is the little things that make a big difference and The Horizon has these in abundance. The Horizon would be difficult to improve on but, despite this, the owner says he plans to improve further this winter. Their desire to be the best they can be for their guests is what will make the hotel a success and draw people back year on year. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view so you won't have to gamble on getting a decent room

We did not stay in this hotel but visited for a meal as we had previously eaten here when staying in Arillas. The hotel is in an ideal setting looking out over the sea on the main road in Arillas. The service was friendly and efficient and the meals which my husband and I had were excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for traditional greek food at good prices.

Location: about an hour by car from Corfu airport. Quietest place in Arillas, 10 min walk from two very noisy bars. Beach is 10 meters from the hotel.
Sea: shallow quite far, amazing island nearby accessible by pedal boats- lots of interesting things for snorkeling, nice to swim.
Food: traditional Greek and European, all very tasty. Breakfast ok- eggs, bacon, muesli, youghurt, basic fruits.
Staff: very good and friendly, always ready to help or recommend other places/restaurants to visit.
Room: relatively spacious, with small kitchen, all rooms with a balcony, facing sea. All rooms have a/c, which was actively in use given a lot of mosquitos and virtually no possibility to sleep with open windows. Some problems with cleaning, like sand from the beach not cleaned every day from the floor, bathroom should be cleaned more thoroughly. Not cr are ok with putting towels on the floor and stepping on them.
It is better to have a rented car if you are staying long to see nearby villages and travel around the island.

We met the amazing greek hospitality at the entrance to the hotel as the owner was waiting for us at 11pm due to our late flight arrival-ready to take our bags, and being hungry he still insisted he would make us something to eat being now midnight!!! Nothing was too big or small task for the owners-stay couldnt of been better. Great value accommodation with big room and balcony, kitchenette, comfy beds and cleaned spotlessly every day. They made AMAZING mojitos, and food was excellent value with filling breakfast included every day. Great location, with a sunset bar included having tapas and cocktails as sun went down. Can't think of any negatives to be honest, JUST LOVED IT AND RECCOMEND IT!!

Room Tip: All rooms front facing to sea....I think :p
