After reading on the thomas cook website that the hotel had been refurbished for 2012, we were very excited to stay at the Dome beach. We had been recommended to stay at the Dome Beach by a family friend who had been staying here for over 20 years. From the moment we arrived at Larnaca airport to our departure we could not have asked for more. We were welcomed into the hotel by friendly staff and offered to have our bags taken up to the room, which was immacuate. Our room was all white with red and black accents in the cushions, chairs and flowers, very clean and having everything you could want from a hotel room. We have stayed in top 5 star hotels and the room was more like a small suite than a standard room, with seating area and dressing table. The veiw was stunning, looking over the pool and out onto the sea and we asked for a sunny room so we could enjoy the sun on our balcony while having drinks before dinner.
The two things that stood out for us was the staff and the food. Everyone was so helpful and seemed like they actually wanted to help. Everyone was always smiling and remembered our names which wa a nice touch. Andreas the restaurant manager always worked so hard in making sure everyone was happy and had everything they needed. There was always a selection of food including a vegetarian option with plently of fresh salads. We would recommend you try the featured restaurants at the hotel, especially the greek and italian. Both are freshly made as you order, and the ingredients in the italian restaurant are imported from italy so you can't really ask for more. The bar staff and entertainment team were fantastic despite us realising by the end of our stay that they worked such long hours-they were always smiling and had took the time to socialise with everyone.
The location of the hotel is great as you have the hotels private beach so you can relax during the day, but if like us you wanted something a little more lively, a 15 minute walk along the beach was the heart of ayia napa's beach parties so you can pick and choose, so you get the best of both.
Some people have commented on the refurbishments. They were still going on while we were there, however we would not have noticed that anything was going on...there was no noise and everything done discreetly. The gym opened while we were there and we were able to have a quick look at the spa which looked lovely, so once opened we are sure it will be a feature point of the hotel.
At the end of our stay we spoke with George, who is the operarions manager of the hotel and he spoke about further refurbishments which will continue to enhance the hotel which is already hard to do, as for us it was fabulous as it was. A fabulous hotel for families, couples, and friends as you have the choice of having a quiet or lively stay-you can make it what you want. We couldn't thank the hotel enough and will definately be returning.
