We have just returned from a week at this hotel and would like to echo some other comments found below. Although, we would like to put a caveat that we were probably not in the best frame of mind for this holiday given we had a trip to the shopital on our second night- The rep and hospital were brilliant so couldn't fault their service.
We specifically booked here as a result of staying at the Atlantica Imperial in Rhodes a couple of years ago - many people recommended this sister hotel and cyprus as a resort- We were thoroughly disappointed with cyprus in comparison to Rhodes as well as the hotel.
Food - Rarely hot, at best luke warm even when eating early
Dinner- we had our drinks taken away from our table when we went to get the next course because they thought we had left! had to ask for another drink
ALa Carte- not exceptional - "hor d'overs" were hard pastry filled with humous, hardly imnspiring..... duck was nuked - far too well done - when we asked for the drinks bill before we'd had pudding their was consternation among the staff!
Lunch - We had the most extorinate wait! There were deifnately enough staff but SO unorganised - We had to wait first to even get a menu and order, and then nearly an hour waiting for a jacket potato and a club sandwich! We have no idea why as the majority of guests were full board so had buffett lunch - it wasn't like to kitchens were flooded with individiual orders! plus the waiters just seemed more attentive for the all inclusive guests-to me that, that was short sited-they would increase there £ by serving those on half board better! after that we did not eat at the hotel for lunch - there was a nice restaurant just on the cove called Vardas- which was cheap, quick and decent food.
Waiters -no happy medium, they were either disinterested and rude, no smiles and obviously saw us guests as being in the way. OR they were over friendly making poor jokes and trying to engage in conversation when it;s obvious you wanted to be left alone. There were obviously alot of guests there who love this approach, but unfortunately not for us. Also, would always seem to interrupt your eating to get you to sign the drinks bill- very annoying, why could they not wait til you had finished?
Sun terraces- slopping - minor announce and there were some flat bits if you got there early enough (and found a sun bed that wasn't broken)
Evening entertainment - the design of the hotel means any rooms with a sea view (or partial sea view) face onto the pool- The entertainment was inside currently as not warm enough in the evenings but we could still here this going until midnight- in the summer this must be unbearable if you do not want to partake and have to listen to it all evening- not very restful when I was ill!
Internet wasn't working for a couple of days-no-one was able to tell us when it would be fixed, plus PayTV service was not very intuitive - we tried to order a film one night and just got porn- might be ok for some people but it wasn't what we ordered!
Gym- good facility to have but my husband wanted to use the runner- it was stuck on an incline! so more of a workout than he was anticipating!
Beds- in the whole comfortable, BUT rubber backed sheets so VERY hot- would be awful in the summer
Maintenance- we were woken at 6.30am by the lawnmower one morning!!!!
Bathroom and room poorly lit - anothr minor thing- but hard to do makeup!
On the positive side - shower was good, fridge in room we did not get charged for but think that was an oversite - Rep fantastic (leanne) when we had to go to hospital and fantastic oranges at breakfasT!
So in summary we won't be going back!
Shower was good
