I stayed at this hotel on the 18th June 2014.
When we arrived we we taken very quickly to the airport and we were the second drop off.
First impressions of the hotel were fantastic. It looks lovely as it has recently been refurbished.
The reception staff checked us in quickly and we were shown to our room. It was overlooking the childrens pool and just above the junior suites with private pool. Amazing views as could see the sea as well. Our room was a standard sea vew room however these were decorated beautifully.
Friends staying there had booked a junior suite and these were huge with two double beds and a massive balcony area.
The food was lovely. I have been to other 4 star hotels with a more varied choice in the main buffet restuarant and this will be my only reason for not giving the hotel and review 5 stars. It would be alot better if there was more options to choose from and more food stations. The desserts in here were cakes and ice creams which you can help yourself.These were delicious!
The a la Carte resturants were lovely. The japanese was gorgeous and the italian was all fresh the pizzas were huge! The greek was everyones favourite and always busy each night. You could reserve these in the reception the night before you wanted to use them. We didnt have any issues with getting a space.
The pool was always clean, the beach was lovely, although a little rocky. There is a beach just over the hill which has crystal clear waters however you do have to pay for sunbeds on this beach and can get very busy with the public. We used to the watersports on the beach. The beach sunloungers were free but if you wanted to use the comfy beds on the other side of the beach you did have to pay 5 euros for these. The hotel gives you a complimentary use for one day for these so you can try them out.
I went to the hotel for a wedding which was on the beach. The setting was beautiful, We were booked to have dinner on the beach however as it was windy we were unable to do this. We had the reception in the function room which was just as good. The dj was fantastic and this was a brilliant day.
I had my hair done for the wedding at the hotel spa and the lady was so helpful and would def reccommend her. I also went in the gym, however the air con does not compete well with the sun coming in through the windows and it can get very hot!
Only a short taxi ride away from Ayia napa if you wanted to go out. It was 10 euros in a taxi one way. You could walk from the hotel down to local shops. The shop in the hotel had mostly everything you could need but if you wanted anything different the lady who ran it would pop down to her other shop when it closed for lunch and try and bring it back for you.
Overall I would return to this hotel as it was one of the best holidays so far.
