I stayed at Adams Beach for my Mum's wedding, which took place in the hotel's chapel by the sea. The service was very friendly, especially the lady who checks you in for breakfast in the mornings, and all of the bar staff; some also recognised me from my Mum's big day and were quick to approach and make pleasant conversation.
The Glasshouse Restaurant was spectacular. We had our evening meal there on the night of the wedding. Our table was on the terrace with views over Nissi Bay with Ayia Napa further ahead in the distance. The food was incredible; it was both delicious and very well presented. The waitresses were also exceptionally friendly.
Food & drink: The breakfast is very tasty with plenty of choice, including both traditional English and continental. The drinks in the hotel are quite expensive though. The piano bar is lovely for a relaxing drink but it was a shame that it was fairly empty most nights. There is also a sushi restaurant on the beach.
Hotel rooms: Tea/coffee-making facilities aren't provided. Fairly basic but I guess this isn't a problem since so little time is spent there. Olive body lotions and shampoos are provided. Hairdryers are also provided. Air Con is included. You have to pay to use the safe. There is a TV with the typical world news channels. The hotel also offers deluxe suites with private pools now as well as the Honeymoon Suites.
Location: The hotel has its own beach with beautiful turquoise sea to swim in. Round the cove there is also Nissi Bay which is usually very busy but has a range of water activities. It is a bit of a walk into the centre of Ayia Napa however the bus runs pretty regularly and there is a stop just outside the hotel. We frequently used the taxis which were 8 euros into the town centre.
Wedding: Evelyn planned the wedding for my Mum and now-husband. She was incredibly friendly and everyone enjoyed the day. The chapel is beautiful with impressive paintings on the ceiling but can only fit in around 15 people max. Some of the other guests were quite rude however and were insistent on squishing into the lift with the bride when we were trying to get to the chapel! Another problem was the chaplain (Simon Holloway) turned up 45 mins late so my poor Mum had to hang around outside the chapel and looked like she had been jilted to the onlooking guests. He also wasn't too apologetic once he arrived. Apart from the chaplain the day was beautiful.
Evening entertainment: this was a little dubious! We spent one evening by the outdoor stage and bar. I don't think the choice of entertainment was entirely appropriate given that all of the audience were members of families and the front row was made up of an average age of about 5/6. It consisted of a group of dancers dressed in skimpy Russian peasant outfits, lifting their legs over their heads and occasionally bending over at the front of the stage (directly in front of the toddlers!) and flashing the audience with their g-strings. However given that we were a group of adults we found the situation completely hilarious.
Overall perhaps the hotel isn't quite a 5* however none of these typical beach holiday hotels never are as high as they claim to be. If you want a comfortable stay, close to the beach and with guaranteed weather then you can't go far wrong here.
