We were relocated to this hotel after the original one we booked closed early for the winter. We didn't want to downgrade from our original choice, but we need not have worried as the Callisto Holiday Village was much better!
We had a two bedroom villa which could sleep 7 people. It was huge and very spacious, spread over 2 floors. It was clean (the cleaner was so friendly) and had everything we needed, except washing up equipment. We bought some Fairy but the cleaner did any washing up we left behind every day anyway.
The village itself is very pretty, with a traditional Greek feel. The pools were good and there were plenty of sunbeds, although in high season I suspect they may get a little crowded as they are quite close together. Beach towels are available from reception. The pool bar and indoor restaurant served nice food and a large variety of drinks and cocktails at reasonable prices. The beach was small but nice, with watersports available. The lobby area was comfortable and welcoming. There was a large car park so if you hire a car like we did there are no problems with parking.
There was free wifi in the public areas of the hotel, although the signal varies strongly even if you walk just a couple of feet.
All the staff we encountered were very friendly, especially Michelle who worked at the bar. She went out of her way to help and always had a little chat.
The hotel is situated down a relatively short but largely unlit road coming off the main Nissi Avenue road through Ayia Napa. As a group of girls we had no problems walking it. There are a variety of restaurants and bars nearby but in November when we went most of them were closed. The ones which were open, however, had exceptional service.
All in all, we had a fantastic week at the Callisto and would definitely go back.

Overall it's ok, don't expect good service. Staff are miserable! food ok, varied choice. rooms cleaned twice a week and meet all the needs. swimming pool absolutely freezing almost unenjoyable! Varied drinks at the bar from local to international brands. a convenience shop is on site sells everything, booze, food, sun tan etc. it is a 3 star but fairly decent, went in a group of 7.

Beach nothing special, Nissi beach is better, 10 mins away. Great water sports - try the stingray and jet skis!

Nightlife is good and plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants near the hotel and loads in the centre of Aiya Napa. city around 5 mins in a taxi, 20 min walk.

Our holiday two weeks , was wonderful! Hotel was excellent.
The rooms were very nice and very clean . Our room maid was excellent.The staf was very friendly and helpful .Reception staff was excellent.
The pools were great , very good for children. The beach was rocky , but very good beach was 5 min to walk- Sandy Beach.We like very much to walk and every evening we walking to the center Agia Napa and we walking near the sea and watching the wonderful sunset.
In hotel were free beach towels and every day maid bring new beach towels to your room.

Stayed in two story villa. Nice, clean building. Room cleaning according to expected standard.
The area for the villas can be improved, but as it is short distance to pool and beaches, it doesn't really matter much.
Had all inclusive - in general food was good, better variety than expected, so very content.
The staff ok, not too many smiles was seen. Especially down at the pool bar there are improvements to be made. The ones in the bar at the restaurant was much friendlier and helpful.
Enternmaint exactly what to expect and maybe a bit better. Children very happy (ages 6 -12) about it, and enjoyable for grown ups as well.
Children and sports activities well led, very enthusiastic team.
Easy to be there due to the very short distance between beach and pool.
The beach is so so, very rocky, better sand beaches in the area.
When needed a doctor, it was fixed immediately

This is a Star Tour "Blue village" hotel, with mainly Scandinavian audience plus a few russians. Pools were great, but could have offered a bit more for the smaller kids.

Situated 25 mins walk from the Square in Ayia Napa, or 8 euro taxi fare. The latter often a good choice in the heat, at least one way. A large choice of good restaurants is a key difference to other destinations I have visited in the Mediterranean.

We tested All inclusive and found it to be ok value for money, around 42 euro per day for adults. Breakfast includes omelets and pancakes, otherwise pretty standard buffet. Lunches were rarely very exciting, however a few of the evening buffets were great, eg Latino fiesta and Cyprus nights (great Stifado). Officially dinner starts at 1900, but you are allowed in from around 1830. Be there then if you want the best seats for the show starting at 1930, or to get first to the buffet....

Apartments are spread out over a big area (see map). We stayed in 81, quite a bit from the pool area. Best place to stay, probably with balcony to the pool, or if you can afford it in one of the few apartments with a small private pool.

Apartments are clean and spacious. Kitchen with very few utensils make cooking difficult. Cleaning is ok, cleaners even do the dishes - which is highly appreciated.

There are plenty of Sunbeds although not much space between them. No reservations allowed until 0900, and unlike most places they even enforce this, removing towels every day a few minutes to nine.

From the pool area you can walk 50 meters to the beach. For a better beach however walk the 200m to Sandy Bay instead.

All in all a good choice for families seeking quiet, trouble free life at a good standard resort.

Room Tip: If I go again I would go for pool view, or possibly one of the six apartments with small private poo...

I am writing to tank for a fantastic stay at your hotel.
I want to complement the staff, everybody has been very friendly and given fine service. I have especially noticed your supervisor in the mornings. His ability to take care of your guests ; adults as well as children was very impressive. I appreciate very much when rules are followed. Christos also had a very nice way of guiding the younger staff helping them in the right direction, very professional. We also got a very friendly & nice service from George and Miraula. The food was very good a lot to choose from every day!

The flat was spacious, nice balcony, good cleaning - very comfortable!
 
I am looking forward to see your plans for the spa! We had wonderful massages during our stay!
The gilrls were fantastic, they had magic hands! I also got a very good haircut & some nice highlights!
Once again tank you for a lovely stay, your atmosphere among the staff is really enjoyable to see!
