Under the Accommodation Reviews about 1/2 to 3/4's of the way down on the first page you will find good information on this Hotel. Some people know it as Marvel and others Marvelous. Never stayed there personnally but it looks a very nice place - and a nice flat, 6 minute, walk to the beach, with a supermarket a lot nearer.
You can find a lot of other info about Arillas, its Tavernas etc by having a "good 'ole search" on the forum topics.
Have a good one

Hotel Marvel

Hi Gemmalou

The Hotel Marvel is a great place to stay and has a lovely pool.  We found it by booking a last minute holiday and now can't imagine going anywhere else!  We have already been for two weeks this year and are going back again at the beginning of August and hopefully again in October.  

There are only 15 rooms so it's very small and really friendly.  It's run by two brothers Spiros and Costas who are fantastic.  You can drink at the bar as long and late as you like - my record was 4am.  :lol:  We find that as the hotel is so small, all the guests seem to mix and get on really well.

There is a supermarket right next door and it's only a 5-7 minute walk to the beach, which is beautiful, and all the other shops, tavernas and bars.

To find out more about Arillas generally, I suggest you read through the posts on the forum as you should find everything you need to know, but just ask the question if you can't find the answer!!

Iv'e never stayed at the hotel Marvel, but have had a drink or 3 in there.  :wink:

The owners are very friendly and will go out of there way to help you if you need it.

There is a supermarket next door and the beach is about a 10 minute walk down a straight road, depending how many ouzo's youv'e had.

Arillas is a beautiful place and there are plenty of bars, there are 2 /3 clubs if you want a bit more of a lively evening Coconut, Malibu Bar and Whispers.

I started going there when i was 20, i'm 32 this year  :shock:  and i still love it.

You'll anjoy yourself, trust me  :wink:
