We have just returned from a week at the Cypria Maris. We arrived near midnight after a typically bad experience with Ryanair. The bar had closed but the duty manager kindly provided us with a welcome glass of wine.The reception area is large and well furnished and very comfortable.The corridors to the rooms were carpeted and very clean as was the whole of the hotel.
Our room was large with a balcony and all the usual facilities (tea making,hair dryer etc.). The double bed was enormous,firm and very comfortable.I was impressed with the mini bar,there wasn't one! Just an empty fridge to put your wine and beer without the hassle of emptying and refilling the hugely expensive drinks usually provided.Morning revealed a lovely view from the room, overlooking pool and sea.
Breakfast was varied, cold meats,cheese etc.fruits ,cereals and the usual cooked breakfast,which was ok but not great.The main problem with the food was the main course of the evening meal. Put bluntly,it was diabolical. The meats were dry and tough,even pork steaks cooked in front of me were barely edible.The vegetables were dried out and looked unappetising,tasting them proved to confirm this.After the first evening we decided to have a good lunch out and rely on the salad bar and pudding counter in the evening as these weren't bad.
It was such a shame as the hotel itself is very nice,friendly,helpful staff, good location right on the beach,facing west with the paved promenade which takes you right to the harbour.
It was very quiet,probably no more than 50 guests,I felt very sorry for the animation team,he had an audience of about 7 for his bingo games.Weekend was busy with an influx of Cypriots
The only other criticism was the indoor pool,which was oddly shaped and barely warm enough .
The air temperature didn't encourage you to linger.The water seemed clean enough although there was a "tide mark" above water level and needs attention.
Overall,I would recommend this hotel,but only on a b&b basis unless they sack the chef!
