The title sums up this hotel : Different. If you are looking for a "normal" type of hotel , then choose another one.
The hotel is quiet unique and a must see even if you decide not to stay there.
A few positives and a few negatives also.
The decor is unique and true to the theme. However I found there were too many mirrors in the bedroom and the bathroom was a bit tired looking. There are no english channels on tv (but you are not on holidays to watch tv), no internet access from the bedroom and the air con stops working after a while.
The cleaning ladies don't really clean properly: they make up the bed and clean the floor but don't really do anything in the bathroom. Be aware of the ants invasion too !
The bar and restaurant looked very nice and the night bartender made us some really decent cocktails (by far the best compare to the ones you can have on the harbour). I did not have dinner there. If you want to enjoy a nice meal, you must go to Hondros Taverna and avoid any harbour restaurants! The breakfast was really good. Lot of choice such as: sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, different type of jams, and much more ... and the resto staff was really helpful
The swimming pool is nice and surrounded by plants, however I suggest you go to Roman 2 to enjoy the rooftop swimming pool. The temperature there is better. You just need to let know the receptionnist at the roman 1 so she can let know the ones in Roman 2.
The real downside I found was the lack of knowledge of the surroundings from the receptionnists. No questions such as buses, nice restaurants, the bar area in town .. could be answered. But even though they were not really helpful, they were really nice and always had a smile on their faces.
In whole, the hotel is rather unique (and is not the best I stayed in nor the worst) and the decor is worth looking at.
If you decide against staying there, and you are coming with a group, I would suggest the Banana gardens villa in Kissonerga with view on the sea!
The coastal walk by the hotel is a must do !
