My girlfriend and I stayed here for a fairly cheap week in the sun, and were very impressed overall.
The Family Village is one of 3 hotels in the complex, and is at the top of the resort, which is up a hill - but it was no problem walking up. The resort sprawls overs many acres and has been finished to a high standard, with lovely terraces, gardens and walkways all over the place. There is a lovely, although pretty crowded, beach at the bottom of the complex where you can get all inclusive drinks and snacks all day. The water is crystal clear, warm and shallow out for quite a distance, with lots of little fish swimming about.
There are about 20 swimming pools scattered around the hotels, all of which appear to be available to use no matter which hotel you're booked into, some of which are quiet, some lively, but all of them bar one are saltwater, and a bit cold, which is different! There were plenty of sunbeds, plenty of parasols and plenty of space. There is also a mini water park with a few slides, into the only freshwater pool. There is so much choice though, you'll find the one you like best.
The Family Village hotel is probably the least impressive of the 3 hotels, the Norida Beach at the bottom of the resort being the most grand, but it was still a lovely place to stay, and had the best food out of all the hotels. The place was spotlessly clean, and the staff were probably the most cheerful and helpful out of anywhere I've stayed. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice daily, but after a week or so it may get a bit repetitive. The evening entertainment in the complex theatre varied from quite good, to pretty ropey - but always done with a smile and was fun. Kardemena town is only a few km away with lots of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs and there are both free hotel shuttles daily, as well as a more frequent and later running bus service which only costs E1.60.
Our room was lovely and spacious, again spotlessly clean and cleaned daily. We had a nice size terrace overlooking the mountain and the rest of the complex. The room was tiled and freshly painted, with a marble bathroom - pretty impressive to be honest.
Overall we thought it was an excellent place to stay and would not hesitate to recommend it or go back again.
