“Great Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Just back from spending a week at the above hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are really friendly, the weather was fantastic and the facilities are great. I had read some of the reviews which were negative before going but I really needn't have worried. We stayed in room 1612 and although the décor may be somewhat dated it was clean and more than enough for our needs. The water park was great and a fantastic asset. Will certainly be looking to go back again :-)

This was my first time going abroad to Cyprus. I wanted a nice and relaxing holiday with the opportunity to go out and this is what I got. The hotel is absolutely fantastic I would recommend it to anyone. The facilities are brilliant and it has so much to offer. The surroundings and the hotel itself is beautiful and well kept. Rooms are kept clean on a regular basis and nothing is ever too much fro the staff.
The staff at this hotel are the best I have ever had. They are so friendly and willing to do anything for you. Having friendly staff makes the holiday even better. Two of the staff that were the friendliest for me was Savvas and David. These two members of staff were really friendly and chatty, making the holiday more enjoyable.
The food is excellent. Each night has a different theme night, such as chefs night, Chinese night, Greek night and many more. So when you go for a week no food is ever the same.
There is also lots of daytime entertainment to keep people of all ages entertained. Overall it was a fantastic holiday and I shall definitely be returning,

Just back from a week all inclusive here. Was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but had nothing to worry about at all. Greeted by lovely George on reception- very polite and helpful. We stayed in a superior room in block 17- really nice and quiet- far end of appt blocks but 2 min walk from pool. We had ground floor so view was blocked a little by trees but still nice. Big balcony and really clean and spacious rooms. Rooms are old fashioned but typical style that you'd Air con was great as it was roasting! Great choice of food for adults and non fussy kids! Unfortunately mine are a bit fussy so chicken nuggets all the way! Pool bar good for snacks during day, ice cream and drinks on tap. Water park great but watch your rubber rings as we had our taken several times while up at top of slides. There is a great volleyball pool that we sat at with our 2 boys who can't swim yet and they were really safe to play in it as they could stand in it. We ventured out for dinner a few times-Corolla up on main strip was "amazing"! Great staff/service and food delicious!

We were an adult party of four and stayed last week in June to 1st week in July 2 weeks. We had an excellent time and would book again. Arrived at 0030 and we did have to walk down the hill with our suit cases but I believe it depends on the coach driver whether he reverses down the hill or not? The bar was closed but the bar staff kindly opened the bar so we could have a few drinks. There was water and sandwiches left in our fridge also.

Rooms: We had been upgraded to a studio apartment which was great! Very Clean, the rooms were cleaned daily with clean towels, and linen changed twice a week. We were on ground floor and there was a few ants, but just a tip put talc outside doors and they will never enter into your room. They have security team that check around the appartments, as we spotted when sitting on our patio.

Pools: excellent pools, very clean and the women in our party loved the lazy river, with their floaties !

Food: Food choice was excellent never had a problem with the food, we did have one in our party that is a fussy eater but he always found something he enjoyed (Lamb!!) a big thank you to phillip the chef very approachable and always asking was everything ok. The staff couldn't do any more for you. Cleaned the plates away very quickly. Bar Staff at pool Savas, David and Victoria very friendly and you got to know them very well we had a lot of fun especially playing the quiz's.(Not that we cheated!!)

We hired a car for 3 days 120 euros 6 seater, we went to coral bay beach which was great 7.50 euros for 2 beds and umbrella for day. Do not go to Lara beach (Turtle Bay) just further up the coast we did and regretted it, you have to go off-roading for about 10 miles to find that its just a restaurant that runs on a generator, and steps down to a rocky/sandy beach with no beds or umbrellas. We had a day in Nicosia and went over to the Turkish side to do some shopping which was straight forward just showed passports and walked across.

Entertainment team where great Sorry Kiki we never did palates!! Ha ha
Its a great place to take children as if you had to pay everyday to take them to a waterpark it would add to your holiday cost but here its free!! it opens 10am - 6pm.and very clean.

Well worth the price for this holiday.

the apartments were wonderful and very clean due to the excellent and very helpful ladies who maintained them. the food was continental and very spicy and covered in oil very nice for a while but very off putting after a few days, took to walking up and buying our meals after a week. the drinks were free and plentiful, the facilities provided by the hotel were excellent, pools were very clean, maintained daily. there were plenty of staff to help out with any little problems from providing extra towels to cooking meals for a infant. overall a very good hotel with excellent standards would not hesitate to re visit the hotel.
The only fly in the ointment as far as I'm concerned was the beach, there wasn't one, no sand, only dangerous stones and boulders witch made trying to swim in the sea impossible. no safe way in and no safe way out. there was no walk way to stroll along after a meal at night and no where to sit and contemplate the lovely view.

Room Tip: none needed top quality. maybe look into internet packages and access for the future.

This is the second year we have been to the Aqua Sol Hotel because we loved it so much last time. It was just a good this year. All the staff are so friendly and so helpful. Especially reception. George the bar man was exceptionally lovely (young george and old george)

We even used the air tours rep Steph to book a trip even though we didnt travel with Airtours. Steph was lovely and always willing to help

Would recommend the Jolly Roger boat trip if you have kids. Brilliant. 4 hours on board a pirate ship with a lovely lunch included and lots of kid & adult entertainment. A lovely swim in the sea.

Hotel Rooms are lovely and spacious. Could do with updating but very clean and good maid service.

My kids absolutely loved the pools especially the water park. The life guards were quite strict but that's not a bad thing. There was also an indoor pool which came in handy when my daughter got sunburnt and couldn't go in the sun. Plenty of sunbeds no matter what time you got up. If you didn't get a bed round pool then the aqua park opened at 10 so you could get one in there. This was end of June though so may be more difficult in August.

Snack bar by pool open all day with a good selection of food. Waiter(ess)s were very friendly and helpful. Lovely ice creams all day long. Gorgeous cocktails all day long.

Food in restaurant was lovely. My only suggestion to the hotel would be to put out more choice for the children. Eg have more than 2 choices. Most nights it was chicken nuggets / chips or pasta. Otherwise it was hot dogs chips and pasta. Or fish fingers. But would have been nice to have all three to choose from plus pizza and spaghetti bolognaise. But the chef was very accommodating and was happy to cook us something if the choice was not to the kids liking.

The three entertainment staff Alex, KiKi and Donna were the best. They worked hard all day and night entertaining guests. There was lots of activities during the day if you wished to do something other than sun bathe. There was Pilates, water aerobics, water volley ball, water polo. It was all good fun. And there was also a good kids club.

Evening entertainment was fab. A kids disco. Then cash prize bingo, and then adult entertainment.

The strip of restaurants and bars were only a 5 minute walk away and most bars had free wifi. Unfortunately the hotels wifi was rather on the expensive side at 5 euros for 90 minutes which you could use over the course of your holiday. And there was a lovely beach 15 minute walk away.

I would definitely recommend this hotel. I just want to back again soon!!

We are a family of four, but our 'kids' are 20 and 17 years, so more of an adults holiday for us. This is more a hotel for young children with the water park attached, however we used the lazy river 3-4 times per day and went on the slides a couple of times.

The staff are fab, all very friendly and do know you by your third day and will chat to you.

The food is good for all-inclusive, we ate out once, not because we didn't like the food just that we fancied a change of scenery. Each night had a different theme, including Chinese, Italian, BBQ etc. The staff in the restaurant are quick to move your plates, so you don't have dirty plates on your table, you don't feel rushed though to leave. The only negative is the wine to have with the evening meal was vile, both the red and white was not nice. My husband told me not to or get it s real beer served - Carlsberg and Amstel as well as a local beer.

The pool bar is the best place to eat during the day, with waiter service again the staff are fab. The food was lovely too with chicken or pork gyros, burgers, nuggets etc.

The entertainment was headed by Alex who is a very friendly guy, we do join in with all the games as we enjoy this part of the day. We played French boules, water volleyball, water polo, killer pool, quiz, but we didn't do the keep fit as I found it boring, not catchy music like at other hotels.

The rooms are quite big, ours was cleaned every day except one. I couldn't falt the rooms at all, except the kids room had a problem with the aircon for a couple of days - but they fixed it immediately.

Negatives - don't buy the wi-fi card - 5euros for 90 minutes use, we got a card with 70 minutes on, when we complained they didn't want to know. Wi-fi is available at all the bars in Coral Bay, we just went for a walk each night and had a drink and used the wi-fi. The evening entertainment was not really up to much, not much of a budget but it is a small hotel. There is a beach within 5 metres of the hotel but it is awful, could be made to look much better with not much effort, it s such a shame it spoils the view too as it looks a mess.

We had a great weeks holiday, I would not like to go for two weeks, but would definitely go back again in the future.
