“nice hotel on lovely beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

first time at this hotel - we were upgraded from the tasia maris sands which closed for the winter last week. We stayed for 11 nights B&B from 17th October. reasonably modern hotel, clean, nice food and very friendly and helpful staff. nice pool and fantastic sandy beach to the rear. weather was fab at 32 degrees our first week reducing to 27 degrees and only 1 afternoon of rain. lots of lightning and storms over a few nights, fantastic to watch from balcony. Overall v. quiet as the resort is winding down to shut over the winter period and this hotel shuts end of October. we would stay here again and recommend it to others. The hotel seems to be popular with the older generation and as such the entertainment is geared up to cater for them ie sunbed stretching, boules and bingo etc. There are lots of lovely area's to visit and a car would be useful especially if you want to visit some of the villages and eat out at some rural tavernas etc, where the locals go. Musicos in Sotira is well worth a visit (best to book) as well as the potamos harbour restaurant, and try the japanese in ayia napa, so entertaining!

Well we have just come back from a chillin week in Ayia Napa. Don,t be put off by the address of this hotel as it is not in the centre of all the noise and bars etc in Ayia Napa, its far enough away to walk into the centre - about 15 to 20 minutes casual walk - or a 5 minute taxi ride. We never used the taxi,s as we always walked so i,m afraid I cannot help on fares etc, but if you are going to use them ask in advance how much then you can decide whether you want to use them - the bus is 1 euro per ride, worth thinking about?? The last time we were at the Tasia Maris was about 3 years ago and there has been 1 or 2 changes, for the better we thought, the baths are now walk in showers - easier for people of all ages, and the option of being all inclusive or not. We thought about going all inclusive but decided against as we prefer to have a walk out after stuffing ourselves at evening meal time, and boy can you stuff yourself. The food is fantastic, and plenty of choice,s too, if you go there and complain about the food then there is something wrong with you because the choice is plentiful and it is cooked to a very high quality.

If you have read any of our reports in the past you will know that we always say how it is, if the food, or anything about our visits is rubbish we would say so. One of the only negative things would be not about the hotel but the tour company - Thomsons - do you really have to try and sell everything as an extra?? Entrance to the V I P room at Larnaca airport 33 euros per person wow!! Also we were on a flight for nearly 5 hours with no entertainment, ie no in flight films or tv yet the facilities are there, all the screens etc. come on Thomsons keep your customers happy.

More about the hotel, its in a fantastic place if like us you like to have a walk about and not just sunbathe all the time. Because its so close to the beach you can make your way along the coast either north to Ayia Napa or south to Nissi Beach and beyond, plus the good thing is that the pathways are good to walk on too. If you like to stay and join in with the entertainment that is ongoing at the hotel then you can do, plus the pool is ideal for people of all ages as it gently slopes down - maximum depth 1.5 metres ( just over 5 foot i,d guess). One of the major plusses, NO KIDS!!! Yippee, no whining or screaming - apart from the bedrooms that is - and a chance to enjoy a swim around the pool without any airbeds etc. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday which is why we go to the Tasia Maris, I know that it will not please all of the people but as far as we are concerned, we enjoy going to this friendly, relaxing hotel to recharge and enjoy our time together. One thing I almost forgot to say, and its very important, the hotel staff from the manager to the cleaners to the restaurant and reception staff are excellent and always smiling and nothing seems to put them out, as they are your main contact they reflect the relaxed atmosphere and ambience of the hotel. Hope this gives you some idea about the Tasia Maris.

Room Tip: Always try and get a sea view as some of the rooms overlook the side of the hotel

Well once again we have been back to the Tasis Maris twice this year again we enjoyed our holiday and met some lovely people Brenda + Keith, who we are keeping in touch with. The cleanliness and staff are second to none we would like to mention Lakis, Julian, Peter,Marina,Pola, Panni all excellant bar staff and they work really hard. Also like to mention and thank all the restaurant staff Chris ,George and everyone else for their hard work and efficiency during meal times.Special thanks to the chef who made some potato soup especially for us as this was not on the menu at the time of our stay. I do agree with some of the reviewers who expressed that they would like more Cypriot dishes on the menu this would be nice I also feel that a bigger fruit selection would be nice have never seen an orange in the fruit bowl in all the times we have have been to the hotel.The dessert choice needs to be changed and improved as this can be a little boring at times not a criticism but a recomendation, some of the grumbles were that the potatoes were tinned and that the standard of food had gone downhill.We always found something that we enjoyed but did go out for a meal a few times went to the Apple retaurant 12.50 euros for a 3 course set menu well recommended better than the the more upmarket place next door but one that cost us 61 euros.
Tassos the manager well what can i say yes he is the best hotel manager i have ever come across ( Tassos you can pay me next year LOL ) seriously though he is a really nice guy and has good interpersonal skills even though he did tell me to move to another hotel as he needed my room joking aside you would be hard pushed to find a nicer manager. Once the hotel closes at the end of this month building work will start to extend it just wondering if the so called sunbed crisis will get worse try the beach at back of hotel its lovely yes it costs 7.50 euros for 2 beds +1 umbrella but its lovely peaceful + safe.
Sam + Sarah hope you will still be at the Tasis next year what a crazy pair you are but good fun and up for a laugh and you do work your socks of for us must say you are better entertainment than some of the acts you have on. I am sorry but everydaze in our opinion have seen better days not much improvement since we visited in June a few different songs and that was it surely when you see most people get up and leave when they came on must say something Thompson need to book their ideas up.
The one thing that we did experience this year was the one Twister out at sea two inland , hailstones + thunderstorm we have been going to Cyprus for 18yrs and have only ever seen 2 minutes of rain up until this October.We are returning to the Tasis Maris in June next year with friends and will see what changes have been made just hope Thompsons sort their evening entertainment out but we say this every time and nothing seems to change.

We loved this hotel. It was our first visit but hopefully wont be our last. I am at a loss as to what some people expect. Is is spotlessly clean, the location is good, all the staff are helpful and the service was very good. The minute you sit down someone is there to take your order. The food is good, varied and plentiful and the chef takes time to explain what each item is and recommend the best sauce for things. We never had to wait for a table. The entertainment team Sam and Sarah do a really good job. The entertainment programme is what people want and expect from Thomson Gold. The acts are the same as in any hotel some were brilliant and some not so good but that is upto personal taste and not a reflection of the indivduals. Peter, Marina, Lakis, Sebastian and all the rest of the staff are all really good, helpful and cheerful.The Manager takes the trouble to talk to everyone and everyone in the hotel makes you feel that nothing is too much trouble. My only critisim would be that you have to pay to have your fridge turned on. We were all inclusive but would have liked to keep a chilled bottle of water in the fridge. Overall fab hotel and even more fabulous staff.

Returned from two weeks at Tasia Maris and ws very dissapointed - place is very dated and needs to move with the times - the food is not up to what you expect from as 4 or 3 star but maybe a 2 - school dinners spring to mind from 1970.s. The rooms are very small and air con does not work properly even though we reported several times. The pool side is rarely cleaned and we had a few days of heavy rain in afternoon which lasted maybe one hour - beds and poolside was still filthy when we returned from beach three hours later - when we went down to leave for evening the poolside still not been cleaned - plastic glasses everywhere plastic bags. Drinks are very weak although we did not spend anytime here even though we were A/I. Manager tries to make money off you wherever he can - I paid £1368 per person to stay here and do not expect to have to pay 30 euros extra to have my fridge turned on , 4 euros per day for tea and coffee and kettle, 10 euros per person per hour for use of an outdated sauna, - the list goes on. If you want to have yuor fridge filled from bar then you have to sign a declaration that you will spend a minimum of 2.50 euros per day.. if you dont they will still charge you this amount per day !!!
Towels are changed twice a week at certain times ( mon and thurs between 9 and 12 ) and must be taken back dry !!
The food entertainment is very old fashioned outdated and not good quality - Sara and Sam the entertainment staff work really really hard and give the regulars what they want which is bingo and quizzes.
The place has a regular group of clients who are older and have been going back for years and expect and want same every year , bingo , bland food and outdated entertainment. Resident Band " every daze " are in blue shiny shirts every night and really cannot sing at all !!
The place needs to realise that the world has moved on and this needs to move with it otherwise they will get no new customers in.
The manager would not speak to us as he knew that we were not happy - he blanked us on several occasions to speak to people that he knew would not complain.

Would I go back - not a chance. if anyone has any questions feel free to email me and I will answer honestly.
If you are well travelled and have a lot of places to compare to this place will not meet standards of today.
I will add photos once review is loaded

This hotel classes itself a 3 star, Thompson have it as their class 4T's. The staff go out of their way to make this hotel stand out from even 5 star holidays I have been too. The hotel manager even takes time out to chat with his guests.

The food for me was great at every sitting, drinks again were great. Even the coffee was the best I had ever had on holiday in Europe. The entertainment was fantastic. The entertainment hosts, Sarah and Sam made this the best entertainment. Can you tell I love this hotel. Already booked again for next year. Hope everything stays the same. They have got it right.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are quieter. Even my limited sea view had a good view of the sea.
