We booked the Bay View Apts for 2wks at the start of July 2011 through Easyjet holidays. The apartments are 3 star rated and that seems a fair rating to me. When we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Vietnamese staff that works there. They took us to reception and booked us in with the owner and then took us to our two bedroom apartment. Our apartment had some damp issues that we weren’t too happy about as the rooms smelled of damp so we asked for another room which they gave us within an hour of asking.
Our second room was on the 1st floor and gave us elevated views of the mountains and the sea. The apartments were cleaned 6 days a week and towels changed twice a week. The Vietnamese staff were really friendly and helpful and seemed really enthusiastic about there jobs. We booked self catering and really only ate breakfast in our apartment and sometimes lunch. There are no shops or restaurants in the immediate area so a car is probably essential. We had a car and were able to drive to the supermarkets in town that had everything we needed.
The pool area was clean and there were always sunbeds available. The water temperature was around 26c during our stay which was perfect as the daytime temp was getting up to 32c regularly.
This is not a lively party place and the bar closed about 9pm most evenings as there were simply no customers. We usually went out for dinner in the evening but we could have eaten at the apartments as they had a dining area and were happy for you to book dinner in the afternoon.
The apartments are also close to the beach but there are no facilities on that part of the coast. For a beach with all the facilities try the campsite at Polis or go further out to Latchi. The air conditioning units cost 6euro each per night so it can work out expensive for a 2 week stay but very essential in the summer heat. When we checked out the owner gave us a delicious pot of homemade Cypriot plum jam which I though was a very nice touch.
The other guests here were mostly from Germany and Austria and they were very nice people with young families like us. The kids just played along together even though they couldn’t talk to each other! This is a great place if you’re on a budget and are looking for a place to relax for a week by the pool but you may feel isolated if you don’t have a car.
