“PERFECT HOTEL FOR NAPA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Stayed here with around fifty 18 year olds and couldn't have asked for a better hotel to fit our holiday!

ROOMS:
-pretty much what you've paid for, very basic
-lots of room
-large enough bathroom
-comfy beds but only one pillow
-very dark when you shut the balcony doors and curtains
-thin walls... Could hear other people banging on their doors at all hours of the day
-working fridge/ kitchenette
-little/ no hot water in the evening when everyone is showering but was quite refreshing!
-had to pay €60 for air con for a week but it ended up being only €20 each once we split it between us and it was defo worth it especially as the holiday was already so cheap!
-overall was perfect for us as all we needed to do was sleep, shower and get ready to go out

POOL AREA:
The pool was amazing, music was good (not too annoying after a heavy night) and the sun beds were comfy. I would say if you want to sunbathe you should get up early as it gets busy very quickly and sunbeds get used up. Pool parties were very fun and a good chance to meet/ speak to new people! The MC was a bit annoying/ pervy but what can you expect... DJ was insane and I regret not buying his CD!

BAR:
24 hour bar was amazing, barmen were funny and always smiling and the cocktails were lovely! Entertainment was provided on different nights including a Britney tribute act which of course, we all loved.

HOTEL SHOP:
Very cheap and had all the essentials! Cheap drinks, crisps, pasta, juice, noodles, chocolate, cheese, milk, fruit and throat sweets which saved my life! We pre-d on our balconies/ in rooms every night so having a shop 2 secs away was perfect.

STAFF:
Thought I'd leave the best til last, the hotel staff! After going to kavos last year we were expecting similar horrible treatment by the staff but we couldn't be further from the truth. The hotel owner, George has got to be the loveliest man in Napa! I sprained and twisted my ankle on our last night and he called the doctors straight away to inform them I was coming and called for me to be picked up and dropped back off at the hotel- completely out of his own heart! I also had a problem with our transport to the airport but whilst I was at the doctors he completely sorted it out for me. Love him!
The shop and bar staff were also very lovely and always smiling. Tony (Smiley T!) made us feel so safe in the hotel as boys/ strangers weren't allowed back to the hotel. He also tried to make sure noise was kept to a minimum as drunk people wander back in the early hours of the morning. With him around at night GB was very safe and he was genuinely such a nice guy to talk to! Nicky (operations manager or something fancy) was insane from the beginning making sure we settled in and were always happy. We always saw him running around the hotel 24/7 making sure everything was running smoothly and if we had any problems we would go straight to him and the problem was guaranteed to be solved! If you see a welsh guy with the best smile ever- it's nicky and we all have a soft spot for him! (Me espesh) ;-)

Thank you SOOO much to the Green Bungalows team, we had such an amazing time and will never forget it. This is the best hotel for a Napa stay and I'll definitely be back!! Lotsa love from the Buckinghamshire girls x

14 of us from west Wales stayed at green bungalows for a week! Everyone there is friendly and it's easy to get tickets for boat party's ect. There are events regularly and good playlists played through the day. The shop is cheap and the food at the bar is 10/10! The reps are not allowed into the hotel unlike other hotels so you're not getting bugged all day. The hotel is a stone throw away from the strip and the shops. The rooms were very spacious and clean. You are missing out if you don't stay here! This is the closest hotel to the nightlife and it was a quality place to stay. Happy hour was between 5:30-6:30 so all cocktails were buy one get one free! Best week of our life's at bungalows! Will definitely be returning.

A group of three of us stayed here for 10 days and it could not have been better! The staff are all so friendly and would help you with anything, there was never any hesitation to approach them! Our air conditioning stopped working one afternoon and they fixed it as soon as we told them! Yes air conditioning was not included in the price but we were well aware of that when we booked it. The bar food was better quality than i thought as well, good selection and really tasty! The location was perfect. Literally a three minute walk from the strip and just as close to nissi avenue with all the resteraunts and shops as well! Would also recommend people to go with 2wentys instead of Club 18-30. We paid around 176 euros for the week package including fantasy boat party, foam party, bar crawls, example tickets etc. Met other people who were on a club 18-30 holiday who paid 260 euros for the exact same package.

The 10 days that we spent at this hotel were as perfect as any girls holiday could be! Right next to the strip, the location was perfect! Having this location and only being just over £400 we weren't expecting much, but the hotel was lovely. The staff were amazing and looking after us seemed to be their main priority, the reputation of Green Bungalows around Ayia Napa was of how safe it was; if you're not a hotel guest then you're not coming in!! There was a member of staff at reception 24\7 whilst others walked around the grounds to make sure people were safe, but still never ruined any of our fun!
The pool parties were hilarious- so much fun! along with the house music night the events held were perfectly organised and great without having to spend any money! The hotel bar is open 24\7 and will make any drink you like, and food is served throughout the day which is really nice!
Over all, we were surprised at how great the hotel was! all 13 of us became friends with the staff and will miss the hotel a lot! Definitely coming back next year!

From booking a 10 day holiday for just over 400 pounds each with 13 girls we thought we had nothing special, but from the moment we walked into the hotel we knew we was wrong! All the staff here are amazing and lovely making sure we knew we was safe in the hotel and not allowing us out before applying rules and making sure we understood we could ask the staff for help, luckily we never had to do so..
The hotel itself is located just a 2 minute walk from the strip itself.. The hotel provides a 24 hour bar, and through the day food. Once again the food and service are nice!
Throughout the holiday whenever we had a question to ask, needed help or just a drink the staff here were always willing to help. This hotel is perfect for a girls holiday!!!!! Although there are strictly NO BOYS allowed back to the hotel, we realised this was actually for our own safety! There are members of staff always walking through the hotel too checking on the guests safety.
The rooms were what we expected, and the only negative point on the whole hotel was the maids being rude.. We recieved a 50 euro fine for making a once white wall stained all over with drink and marks, broken glasses and breaking the loo... A fine we was expecting to be a lot more; but the staff understood and then lowered the fine.
The hotel itself advises you on events to go on, and also hosts its own events like the pool party and the house music night, both og there are worth while attending!
We will deffinately be returning to this hotel next year as we have met some lovely people, value for money, great location and really did make out holiday!!!

- Me and my boyfriend went to green bungalows (due to cheap prices) at the end of June 2013 - beginning of July. upon arrival, the reception looked good and the receptionist seemed nice and mentioned the expensive prices for air con and safety boxes yet didn't mention that we could rent a fan for cheaper. this meant we were sweltering in the heat for 5 days before realizing we could purchase a powerful fan for 20 euros a week instead of 60 euro air con! 2 of the female receptionists however were friendly and helpful occasionally.

- ROOM: after reading reviews previously before going on holiday, we became very concerned about the cleanliness of the room and noise. The room turned out to be okay, a basic spacey room with basic kitchenette equipment, however one of the kitchenette items were rusty and one of the cookers stopped working, all white towels were also dirty and looked unwashed. After a few days the toilet started smelling of urine even though everything was clean. Apparently a few people in the hotel were also experiencing this.

- Room Service & Cleanliness: The lady came in instantly after knocking without checking to see if we had replied or not, she came around 11am when we were still in bed and therefor sent her away and asked her to come back later. She didn't, we then didn't have any sort of towel changing/bed cleaning/toilet roll changing for about 4/5 days which was appalling. The beds became manky due to the heat and sweat and we ran out of rolls. We asked the hotel if we could have some toilet roll replacement, they didn't have any. Also instead of changing our bin liner, they instead replaced it with one of our tiny shopping bakery bag which again filled up too quickly! After reading all the reviews from mainly groups of drinking people saying this hotel was great; even if they think its great due to location and 24 hour bar and a young hip pool to hang out at, this DOESN'T mean the rooms are nice/clean etc.

- POOL: Although the pool looked nice, it was instantly filled with people everyday around 10am. These people literally stayed in the pool all day until about 6pm just tanning and messing around, not letting other people have any sunbeds. We stayed clear of the pool but visited around 9am where there were barley any people. People would also come early in the morning and put their towels on the sunbeds and then leave for hours and then return to their saved sunbed disabling anyone from using them through out the day; selfish people.

- HOTEL: The noise etc wasn't as bad as we thought it would be..from the hotel itself. However we couldn't sleep much due to the constant pounding music through out the night from the opposite hotel. Our balcony was very closely facing another hotel to which people would NOT shut their music off till about 5am. We couldn't close our balcony at night due to the heat and the air con being too expensive (they failed to mention we could borrow a cheap fan!) Although we didn't mind there being lots of noisy drunk people bumbling around (we are 18 and drinkers too but a couple on a holiday), it was annoying to wake up several times on the first night due to lads having arguments outside the apartments and banging on doors. I was surprised there was no noise control, for example past 2am, play your own music quieter, not blaring across halls. Instead they played it till 5am.
We noticed all the rooms by the pool had about 2 extra windows or so. We had asked for a room away for the pool to hopefully reduce the noise at night for when we slept. They kindly gave us a room far away from the pool as requested (even though this was no better as people from the hotel opposite played even louder music.) They didn't bother giving any of the non pool rooms a window, only a balcony. This made the room stupidly hot as you couldn't keep the balcony open every night.

- Overall: We stayed at this place out of a spontaneous cheap choice; this was before we read the bad reviews. The location is great and i love the strip with great restaurants, beaches, cheap booze/fags. The room was basic and fine in terms of a 3 star place, however i did at least expect better room service and clean towels! Also considering we brought a self cater studio flat, it was disappointing when some of the equipment were rusty and one of the hobs stopped working. Next year i am coming back to Aiya Napa with a drinking group, however i would not stay here again due to noise, the people and lack of cleanliness. I would stay in a different place on the strip.

Room Tip: Even the rooms away from the pool aren't ''quieter.'' If you don't mind bad...

Unfortunately me and my husband would not advice a young couple to stay here! The air conditioning was not included in the price, we had to pay and we had to pay extra ten euros for each night we used it. There were not any sunblind curtains so it was really awful as there was light in the room from six in the morning. There was not TV in the room either! Also the most terrible of all is that the place is mostly rent by eighteen year olds who made noise whole day and night, running in the corridors, shouting, talking loud and you could not sleep at all!
Really bad choice for a mid twenty couple!
