This was our first experience of an all inclusive holiday and we had a wonderful time. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome by the reception staff on duty and I have to say the friendly and pleasant service provided by Llama and Natalia in particular continued throughout our stay.
We stayed in room 710 which had views both over the pool and sea as requested. The apartment was attractive and spacious and our room was cleaned daily and the beds made every day. Air conditioning was a little noisy even on low, but that was the only concern accommodation wise.
An extensive selection of choices was available at breakfast and it was pleasant to sit outside overlooking the pool. A variety of salads and main dishes were offered at lunch-time although it is advisable to wait until the queues have dissipated and eat later. Dinner was rather disappointing however, some dishes were barely warm after being left out for some time and a greater selection of meat and fish dishes could have been provided. Service at dinner-time needs improving as there are only a few staff to meet the needs of a significant number of guests. Drinks often arrived when we had nearly finished our meals which was unfortunate.
The main pool area is fantastic and even though when there was a significant number of people in the pool at times there was still ample room to swim. I enjoyed Aqua aerobics although the water polo did get a little boisterous at times and inhibited the enjoyment of the other pool users. We would have liked to have seen more activities on offer for the 6-12 age group as the activities were all aimed at either the smaller children or teenagers.
Roxana does a sterling job; she makes time to talk to most of the guests and is keen and enthusiastic at all times. I was suitably impressed by her ability to speak a variety of languages which made her approachable to all guests.
The bar staff and waiters do a fantastic job in the evenings. We sat out on the terrace most evenings and they offered a friendly and prompt delivery of drinks when requested. Special mention must go to Sarah and Martina for their polite and pleasant manner with guests.
The hotel is 4 km away from Paphos so we took several taxi rides to go shopping and out for several meals. It costs 10 euros for 10-15 trip although there is a shuttle bus available provided by the hotel. The trip to Fasouri water park is highly recommended; it is green and lush and we had a fantastic day there.
The beach by the hotel is just a rocky cove and it is difficult for smaller children to access and feel safe. There is a small sandy beach 10 minutes walk away in the direction of Paphos but watch out for the large rocks.
We had a fantastic holiday and were sorry to leave; hopefully we will return to Akti Beach sometime in the near future.
