Stayed here all inclusive with my girlfriend and our friends from 14th to 21st October 2012. What a Holiday!
Arrived late at night, greeted by English staff on reception. Check in was speedy and pleasant, and we were soon up in our rooms, The rooms have recently been refurbished, we were in room 205, we had a king size double bed, safe, air con and fridge at no extra charge and a view over the pool and beach to die for. Room was cleaned daily and always had fresh towels every other day.
As soon as we went down to the bar for a drink we were asked if we would like a cheese toasty as the restaurant had closed, this was a nice touch.
All of the staff in the Hotel are very polite and helpful, one member of staff in particular, his name is George, he works in the Taverna restaurant and is such a nice guy, a real credit to the Hotel.
I really couldn't fault the food at the hotel, it was the best food at an all inclusive resort I had ever experienced. Breakfast was the usual full English buffet, with cereals, pancakes, toast and fruits and salads. For Lunch and Dinner, there were different choices of meats (carvery one night) pastas, fish, and salads every day, some times up to 5 different salad choices and if that wasn't enough for you, then you could build your own, the dessert choices were also very good too. The food was that good that we never left the hotel to eat out, there was simply no need. if you didn't want to go to the buffet restaurant for something to eat, you could order snacks from the pool bar, which consisted of burgers, pizzas, tuna in pita bread and pasta dishes, all of these were also good quality and tasty. The beer served here is Leon or Kappa, there is a good selection of cocktails and spirits and the wines served in the restaurant is also not bad at all.
The Hotel is set right on the beach and easy to get to, the sea was lovely, warm and calm. The pool area is also nice but if you want a decent spot you better prepared to set your alarm clock early LOL! You get a card which enables you to exchange it for a towel to use by the pool, this is exchangeable every 3 days.
You can also walk down to Protaras via the board walk, it takes about 30 minutes, we did it one evening and got a taxi back for 8 euros.
The animation team work very hard with lots of activities throughout the day and make the days interesting, archery is well worth a go. Evening entertainment......OK I'll be honest, it's no Royal Albert Hall, but it is varied and there's something for everyone. Quiz, raffles, bingo and Karaoke, along with tribute acts and magicians, again I have to say it really is a good effort for Hotel Entertainment.
The weather, simply perfect, it was over 30C every day and never dropped below 20C at night.
I would love to return to this hotel next year and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a nice relaxing beach holiday. Either couples, with friends or families, its perfect.
