Travelling a lot around the world and working in a tourism as a professional I must say the hotel doesn´t complies four stars.
Hotel – according to the internet should be refurbished – the only refurbishment is that everything was painted or made in white color, the hotel as a whole is very simple almost sterile, the furniture is used up, the furniture outside is even falling appart and peeling of. Everything is made from a very cheap material (some things bought in IKEA) and so on.
Staff - very kind and general; special note about the staff taking care of the beach follows
Rooms and bathrooms - big, clean but definitely outdated, they need renovating, again they are only white, the diference between normal and executive rooms is that in the ER you have some colored pillows, few pictures on the wall and one socket more (normally there is only one), bathrooms have the same look in both kind of rooms – and they are very very old. If you are going to ask for a triple room you are going to get only additional folding bed but you´ll be charged full rate .
Pool area – looks amazing from far, but from the closer look – old tails gluing off, check the tidiness; beds with blankets and pillows not being changed for two weeks, you can imagine how many people were resting on them!
Hotel Beach - the worst beach I have ever seen in Cyprus in my life. It´s shared with other three hotels, but the hotel has its own space….but again but. The beach was so dirty – plastic cups, straws, butts everywhere, papers, cans, ashtrays full of butts, glass cullets and other things and no one to clean it!!!!
Plus the beds on the beach – there are two kinds of beds – old blue ones – for free. Old, damaged, without roundlets, foxy bedsore mattrasses!!! And new ones – in white color again, and white umbrellas and white tables – for these you have to pay. And for the big ones even 20 EURs. And there is no written note about it and no one is telling you that!!! There are two guys – staff in white sitting there all day and waiting for those who are willing to pay for them. This is their only job. I saw them cleaning just the seeweed and not the rubbish covering the sand. No to mention that the white sunbeds were most of the time empty. But they could get whatever drink at the beach bar and to smoke in front of clients.
Food – breakfast very basic, without any invention, every morning from the brad to the last egg same. You had to lay your table very often. Regarding lunch or dinners – nice but very small selection, nothing to be excited of.
Bars - good stock, friendly staff, but without knowledge of the drinks, because they were only part-timers. Drinks quite expensive – all of them.
Hotel entertainment - there is one every night and terrible (maybe except the Cypriot evening) Old songs sung by people who doesn´t speak English or even don´t know how to sing. Outdated songs. And the whole entertainment is very very loud. And the same you can hear from the near by Golden Bay hotel. Like a competition who is going to sing louder. This awfull. You can´t get decent slep before midnight and when you have children with you ….. To get a room towards the Lordos hotel doesn´t help either. You get the same roar plus the view of the old furniture or kitchen equipment thrown out behind the hotel.
Unfortunately this hotel can´t be rated as a 4-star hotel. The maximum with closed eyes are 3 stars. No wonder that the hotel was half empty (not even 60%) and honestly I am afraid that the hotel will look like a close by hotel Beau Rivage – once a famous hotel now being a ruin.
