Me and my boyfriend (aged 23 and 26) stayed at the Tasia Maris from 14th July 2013 to 28th July 2013. I don't know where to start other than if you are planning a trip to this hotel, you won't regret it!!!!
On arrival we were quickly checked in and made our own way to our rooms. Our room was one of the older rooms but was comfortable enough for what we needed. (Although we had major room envy when we had a glimpse of the bew rooms when walking past one day-they looked amazing!!!!!) The bathroom was nice and big with a great shower. We were a little disappointed that our room was situated on the corner of the hotel and it did not offer much privacy if we had our curtains open as the next door balcony and all rooms on the left hand side of the hotel could see in to our room so we had to keep the curtains closed which was a shame to shut the sun out. I think the hotel should get net curtains which would offer privacy and also allow light in to the rooms. Our rooms were cleant every day and provided clean towels.
The food at the hotel was delicious. So much choice, there was never a day that we didn't like what was put on for breakfast and dinner.
The staff are so friendly but not too friendly that it gets over bearing. What we really loved is the manager Mr Tassos invites you to welcome drinks and he introduces himself and other members of staff and tells you a little about the hotel. He really was a character and at the end of our stay we were again invited to leaving drinks, then when we left Mr Tassos was shaking guests hands as they got on the coaches. We really thought this was a lovely touch and really made us feel incredibly welcome and valued. All the staff have great personalities and can't do enough for you, they work long hours and always had a smile on their faces and even when walking past you would say hello/morning etc!
The hotel is situated in an ideal location. Lots of bars and shops and restaurants are near but not too close so that you are disturbed by the noise. Again ayia napa strip is a 20min walk away but again far enough to not be disturbed.
Our only criticism of the hotel is that men have to wear trousers to dinner. Luckily we read this on trip advisor so my bf packed some jeans. We heard of some guests being turned away from dinner for wearing tailored shorts and other guests having to buy trousers. Whilst I agree that trousers is smart I can't understand how it looks smart when some men were wearing jogging bottoms. Also there is no dress code for women so on one night two girls walked in to dinner in next to nothing, they were NOT turned away. I think if the hotel is going to be strict with this rule for men then it needs to be applied to women also as I can'tunderstand why it's acceptable for women to wear short shorts/dresses for dinner but men can't wear tailored shorts. It really is a ridiculous rule.
The entertainers Sarah and Sam at the hotel are great fun And although we never took part in any activities we enjoyed watching the fun.
I really would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone and we are certainly looking at booking up next year!!!
