We stayed here for one week in June`11, family with two little kids. The place is kind of like a scandinavian village, only you`ve got the nice and sunny weather and of course the sea wich is really nice in Cyprus! I personally don`t like like these kinds of travels where everything is set up for you and everyone you meet are norwegians and swedes. Why go to Cyorus for hanging out with your neighbors, I mean...but, with that said, we went here for the kids, and the kids loved the place! It was clean, nice pool areas, one of the restaurants at the complex was quite good (the other one served that typical charter-trashy food; fries, club sandwiches etc.) and the sea was amazing! Sandy Bay, wich is the closest beach, is perfect for little kids! And then of course you have Nissi Beach a ten minutes walk away, which is a bautiful and much bigger beach, full of partying teens not to mention.
The biggest dissappointment of the journey was the food! We had our best meals from the breakfast buffet at the hotel and the two dinners we had from the same hotel restaurant at night (il Fino). Other than this, all we got was pretty much trash! I would have struggeled if we were to stay here for more than one week.
So what can I say...the place deserves its 4 (or is it 5?) stars, but personally I will not come back either to this place or any other place similar to this. But if you enjoy this way of travelling (charter), then I will defnitely recommend this hotel, its nice and clean and perfect for little kids.
No more charter travelling for me.
Ps) The cleaning ladies stole my watch, so make sure you use the safe if you`re going here!
