I recently staid here for a 4-day weekend with a friend. The front desk staff were extremely nice and helpful. Though we had to wait until day of departure to confirm, we were able to get a late check out at no extra cost (our flight departed at 21:50). The room was of of a good size and comfortable though I found the beds to be rather hard. My friend, who loves a firm mattress, thought they were fine so different strokes for different folks I guess. The pool/beach area had a system where you could "claim" an umbrella for the duration of your stay, which is in theory nice, but it requires that everyone pay attention and not take an umbrella that has been tagged as occupied. That happened to us on our last day when we went down a little late but found towels and such on the seats we had claimed, but we didn't want to make a stink and just found a vacant umbrella. There is a bus stop near the entrance to the hotel which is very convenient for going into town.
We were a bit disappointed by the dining options. At night there was a buffet restaurant, the pool bar for snacks, and a Cypriot restaurant. The more formal dining room was closed and we had wanted to treat ourselves one evening but were too tired to go out after a long day of sight seeing.
As mentioned by other reviewers, they charge for internet which is annoying, but seems to be common practice in the surrounding hotels so no use getting upset.
