“part time cypriot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2007

Have been to the Nelia lots of times - as you can see we are part time Cypriots - that is what the Cypriots call us. Elena has now gone as has Mickalis (Michael the barman) - but when we went we discovered where he worked and he still took us out for a meal - thats the Cypriots for you - absolutely bloomin smashing - wish we could live there!! The new barman - Antonio was a real cutie - hope he's there when we go this year - have just booked today to go in June.
Chinoula - one of the receptionists was getting married in January 2007 - we sent her a card. Lovely girl very helpful. Can't wait to go back - its a 3 star hotel - if you expect the Ritz you may be dissappointed. If you want a clean fairly quiet hotel without too much razz ma taz - you will not. May be see you there in June.

We have just returned from staying at the Nelia Beach Hotel on Thursday 6th Oct 05. Although this was our 6th time in Ayia Napa we had never stayed at this hotel before.

I was slightly worried about some of the reviews but I shouldn't have been. Both my husband and myself had a great time. The hotel is situated far enough away from the main square to be restful during the day and was only a 10 minute walk to the 'action' in the evening. The pool was on the small size, but hey the beach is only 2mins walk from the rear of the hotel.

All the staff were very friendly, especially Elena, who runs the poolside bar. She is a scream, had us laughing all the time and Mikilas the Barman in the evenings. The food was well cooked and presented nicely with theme nights, but as with most AI it can get a bit repetitive towards the middle of the second week. So we decided to eat out a couple of times. If you are going to Ayia Napa, try Los Banditos (Mexican Restaurant) it is brill... but get there before 10pm as it gets really busy. Try the strawberry margaritas; I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

Also, try the Kahlua Bar in the square for excellent cocktails and good company & music. Say hello to Andrea and Yannis for me. (Iris & Pat).

Unfortunately, AI is not going to be an option next year, not only for this hotel but many other we were told.

Please don't let people put you off Ayia Napa, it is not just for the young, its for the young at heart. I am 48 and my husband is 51 and the age groups are quite varied in Sept/Oct. There is music for every taste and age and even English style pubs.

The only thing I would suggest is that you must book 'Named Accommodation' otherwise you may end up in the middle of the square over a club/bar' which would be a bit noisy to say the least......

We will be back next year partying as good as ever.......

We booked a large family party to go to the Nelia Hotel. Me, my husband and son had stayed in Ayia Napa before and really wanted to show the rest of our party how good it was. I had read other reviews prior to going and to be honest I was dreading it because we had spent so much money on the holiday I didn't want to be the one to blame if anything had gone wrong.

Well what can I say! The food was out of this world even the fusiest eater would have found something they liked. The hotel overall was very clean and the staff where outstanding. Katie (the entertainments manager) was crazy, she kept everyone busy with her programme (I don't know when she ever had time to sleep). Elena who worked behind the bar was very friendly and funny. I could go on and on.

The hotel is about a one minute walk to the nearest beach, only a five minute walk to the clubs and Luna Park.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of going to Ayia Napa, we definately will be returning, and just one more thing take the All Inclusive option (but make sure you diet before you go).

After reading terrible reports about this hotel after we'd booked the holiday i was dreading going to this hotel. went in September 04 and been to Ayia Napa 3x before so the thought of going to such a horrible hotel put me off. arrived quite late but first impressions were very good, receptionist was friendly, our room was modern and clean and the bathroom had a proper bath and good shower. Had difficulties working the safe so we called reception and they sent someone straight up to help us. The only thing i didnt like was the balcony, it was very small and it didnt seem very safe. we also overlooked the next hotel which was only about 20meters away and we could hear and see everyone.

We stayed on a half board basis but we chose to upgrade to all inclusive when we got there, you could pay at reception.
The pool area was lovely, and it was kept very clean, Elena who worked behid the bar was a nutter, she was very friendly and made everyone feel really welcome. It was just a couple of steps away from the beach but when you get free drinks all day you dont venture too far. The other hotel staff were all friendly and would do anything to help. Even the night porter, George was friendly no matter what time you came in he was always nice, even when we left a trail of popcorn for him to clean up after going to a popcorn party(great fun if you want to go).
The food was ok. There was a different theme night every night but the food was mainly the same, the snacks though were very good and these were available after breakfast, dinner and tea. So if you took kids and they didnt like the normal food then they could get chips, burgers, etc. The barbeque night was good.
Although we didnt stay originally all inclusive because we did not want to be tied to the hotel and we went to the square everynight, if we had gone all inclusive we would have been disappointed with the entertainment because there wasnt any. There was 1 entertainment girl who was very nice, who did aqua aerobics & water polo in the day, then at night while we were there we had 1 greek dancer, 1 kareoke night and 2 games of bingo over 14 nights. The rest of the time you were on your own. The bar shut at 12pm for free drinks then closed at 1am, if you were still up the lights would be turned off. Luckily Ayia Napa doesnt shut and we met some great friends at the hotel.
The hotel was in a great location, on the beach, near the harbour and just a few minutes walk from the noisy bit.
Went to Egypt on a 2 night cruise while we were there and I was a bit worried about leaving everything in the room, but there were no problems at all. While we were there no-one had anything stolen and as far as I know no-one made any complaints.
Am definately going back to Ayia Napa and would go back to the Nelia, overall we had a great stay there.
P.S. if you go the George Cross behind the bar is ours!!

i went to ayia-napa because we like cyprus so much
and the hotel when i booked it was said to have entertainment most nights if you call playing darts/
pool/and the odd quiz entertainment well you will love the evenings we had our three grandchildren with us on the last three afternoon's the did colouring, other than that there was nothing for them only the pool we had to take them out most days and nights to the fair which was not very good for us but they were so bored, the food was not very good we had spaget/boll every day and pork the only thing they had for the children was fish fingers beans that was it we asked for a burger for the children and they said no only at snack times
but then they only had that one day and it was cold and this was allinclusive. it goes on,on,on,on
