We stayed in this hotel in April for 2 weeks as a couple and the kids stayed for 1 week. 2 teens (17/20) and family of 2 adults, a 2 yr old and a baby. 3 rooms in total.
First impressions were good, grand luxurious foyer and pleasant happy staff. Check in was quick and painless.
We were in room 106 and the kids in 115 & 116. 115/116 rooms were seaview but to be honest i prefered our room 106 as we had the afternoon sun.
Family room was adequate for their needs, 2 full size single beds, 1 small single bed (a proper built up on) and an excellent travel cot. Still room to move around and the bonus was the huge balcony 115 had! Other rooms fine, a bit dated, but there seems to be some moderinisation going on as we all got brand new flat screen tv's whilst there. The sofas in the foyer was also replaced.
Rooms had a fridge, wardrobe and 6 drawers, but the hangers in the wardrobes were plastic rubbish. Hopefully they'll correct this soon. Bathrooms were ok, need a bit of updating, but do the job. Toiletries provided including soap, shower wash and an amenities kit with sewing kit and earbuds. Shower pressure was fantastic and there was always hot water. Beds a bit on the hard side and was definetely feeling it after 2 wks!
Breakfast consisted of a variety of cereals, lots of bread, fruit, cheeses, hams, hot sausages, bacon, fried/scrambled eggs and freshly cooked waffles. Tea/coffee and orange/grapefruit juice was ok.
Lunch had a variety of hot/cold foods all of which suited everyone. Beer/wines/fizzy juice/water is served to you by waiters.
Dinner - remember that you cant wear swimming shorts to dinner - drinks are by waiter servive and dinner is a large variety of hot/cold selections. One thing we noted was the carvey on one of the evenings was delicious beef/turkey & lamb.
Poolside has a number of items for everyone to use, table tennis/pool/table football. There is a smaller childrens pool and the larger pool with a small section which includes a jacuzzi. Indoors there is a large heated pool and a small gym but it only has one running machine! There is a sauna, but none of use made use of it.
Poolside bar was open from 10-6 but i think it opens later in the summer months. Delianna who works there (Deliah) is fantastic! Such a friendly girl.
The entertainment staff are fab - Peter (manager), Paul, Esthi and ? (sorry cant rem her name) work tirelessley to keep everyone amused. During the day, from 10.30 am there is pool competitions, aqua aerobics, darts, water polo, beach volleyball, boulles etc. For the kids there are colouring sessions, dance classes, sand castle competitions etc. The evenings consist of a variety of bingo, entertainers, (dont miss Elvis!), karaoke, casino nights etc.
We drank a variety of beers, cocktails, spirits and soft drinks and found them all to be of a superior standard to previous all inclusive. One thing to watch for is the strength of the drinks! For my vodka and diet coke i had to order an extra diet coke to dilute the drink!
Out and about
From the end of the pool you can acess the beach (Sandy Cove). Gorgeous cove with crystal turquoise water but just watch were youre walking in as there are rocks in certain areas. From the beach there is paths on the left and right. The right hand path (facing the sea) takes you to Nissi beach (about 10 mins walk) and the left takes you to Ayia Napa municipal beach (about 20 minutes walk) or into the harbour in Ayia Napa (about 30 mins). If you go out of the front of the hotel and take right a 20 min brisk walk will take you into Ayia Napa. At the end of the road there is a grave yard on the right hand side. If you go right it will take you to the harbour, take left and it takes you up to the square which then leads you into the central Ayia Napa area where all the bars/clubs are. The Square Pub (just beside the monastary) has great live guitar music in the evenings.
A bus runs from the main road to the water park or Parilimi. 101 (opposite side of hotel) takes you to Parilimi and 102 (same side as hotel) takes you to the water park. The Paralimi bus stops off in Protaras (takes bout 20 mins) but the bus driver shouts the stop you are at. Protaras is a gorgeous town and well worth a day trip to. Walk out to Fig Tree bay to see the beautiful beach.
We went to some of the shows in the bars across the road. The orange grove had the Blues Brothers on one night and they are fantastic. Robbie Williams was ok, as was Meat Loaf but as I said before, it was a quiet time of the year and all of these places will probably be more lively in the summer months.
