We stayed here from 3rd - 10th November 2012.
We've never been all inclusive before, as my partner is quite a fussy eater.
My parents have been here twice before and assured us the food was good quality and that there was plenty of choice.
They weren't wrong- breakfast was enjoyable with plenty of choice, lunch was amazing, the soups and Chinese selection being our favourites- and the fresh fish and breads where a nice treat.
The themed evenings each evening where great especially the Cypriot/local foods as you could try foods you wouldn't normally!
The salads are to die for, even they felt like a treat.
I think that is what I personally loved the most being able to sit outside each morning with my breakfast and coffee!
Alcohol was included in the deal, choice again was excellent with their local lager (Keo) going down well with the men in our party, whilst the cocktails where a female favourite (Phaethon Special is a must)!
Pool area is huge, clean and relaxing. They have fun quizzes and activities throughout the day which you can take or leave. Some days with joined in and some days we just chilled out with a book- no hassle from the animation team.
Talking of the animation team dido's bingo calling 22 quack, quack, quack song was my partners highlight of the holiday!!
Had us in stitches!!
The Animation team as a whole are wonderful and friendly and made you feel really welcome, we enjoyed our chats with them before the entertainment started at night and again they didn't pester you.
Rooms are on the small side and due to it being winter season, even though it was 28oC most days, the air con had been switched off. We left the balcony door open the first night as it was rather hot and ended up covered in mosquito bites. This was totally outside the hotels control and I'm just mentioning this for other holidaymakers after us to be aware of. The reception do supply fans if you find it too hot..
Maybe the hotel should consider being able to switch the air con on out of season just incase it is unseasonably hot?
The bar staff where amazing- never managed to finish a drink before another one arrived!
Like I've said we have rebooked for the end of April/start of May 2013.
Hopefully see you there then! :)
