Where to start? We have just returned from at 10 day trip here. So, negatives first..
- Staff, most are miserable and quite rude, maybe they'd rather be elsewhere.. it seemed like it? The bar staff were much better so not a total loss in this department.
- Food, we would recommend that you don't choose an all inclusive option, we did and ate out most nights, the food is terrible at best. We aren't picky eaters and don't expect chips etc, we hoped for traditional Cypriot dishes such as souvalaki or moussaka.. this didn't happen.. most of the food I'd refuse to give to my labrador, boiled meat pieces or unknown fish with rice (labelled as risotto) and over boiled vegetables.
- Russians, this hotel is 95% occupied by Russians, whilst we have nothing against Russians, its an odd atmosphere at meal times, relaxing by the pool or evening entertainment.
- Don't expect clean towels everyday, or even every other day.. we had to go down and ask for them more than once. Also, bring your own beach towels.. there is a 12 euro charge to borrow one.
- Extra charges, 2 euro per day for safe, 12 euro beach towel, wifi charge (unsure cost, we didn't buy it.. go round the corner to a bar and use for free) ordering anything not on the inclusive menu is very expensive for poor quality.
- Gym, its a room with a treadmill, bike, two broken multi-use machines.. waste of time!!
- Not in Protaras!! Protaras is a 20 minute walk.. and in 35+ heat its not pleasant.. buses are frequent though, 1.50 euro before 11pm and 2.50 euro afterwards. Agia Napa is about 30 minutes on the bus.
- Apartment is large and clean
- Spending time outside of the hotel and trying to enjoy the surrounding areas
- Breakfast meal is actually quite good
- Free air conditioning
