“Was stranded due to volcano, couldnt have been in a better place than sweet memories.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2010

This is my first time to write a review although i have been on many holidays. This was my first time in cyprus and the sweet memories hotel. i arrived in hotel at 8.00 am to a very friendly, heplful receptionist called caroline. The room was large and airy and very clean, the cleaning staff were in regular and were also very friendly and helpful. Lisa, who runs the bar was brilliant at her job and made everyone feel so welcome and at home, she deserves a promotion. I was supposed to be there for one week but due to the volcano i was there for three weeks. All the staff made my extended stay an extremely memorable one with the inclusion of sami, the olympic rep. People who were moved from the five star + hotels due to the volcano and having to stay another week said they were treated better by the staff of sweet memories. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Again all staff were fantastic especially Lisa and Caroline who are an asset to the hotel. From the irish girls room 311

We have stayed at the Sweet Memories twice before and travelled with our parents and a friend, who have been going for thirteen years. I can understand why people return year on year, as it is one of the most friendly places I have ever visited. The one bedroomed apartments are large in size. Although basic, they have everything we needed for our two week stay, which turned out to be three, due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland. We couldn't have been looked after any better and were able to keep our apartments for the week we were stranded. Sami the Olympic rep was brilliant and went round everyone personally twice a day to keep us informed of the latest developments. Lisa and Caroline were extremely efficient, helpful and friendly and even arranged extra entertainment to keep moral up. The breakfasts were the best value and quality in Protaras and the hotel food good, although limited in choice. The Super S restaurant a few doors away serves excellent food with friendly service and is good value for money. The Anatolia is also a good place to eat with good food and offering set menus. The Malmia pub a few minutes stoll away offers a warm and friendly welcome to all its customers and shows all sports. As we stayed at the beginning of the season, there was a limited amount of bars and restaurants open in the resort, but there was enough for us and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at this time of the year. The pool area in the hotel is kept lovely and clean and there are plenty of sunbeds and parasols, but be warned the water is rather cold in April although it gets much warmer during the Summer months. I would definitely recommend these apartments if you are looking for a holiday where the staff cannot do enough for you and you want to have a great holiday.

The first holiday in twelve years saw us travelling following much research on Trip Advisor to Sweet Memories.
We found ourselves in a lovely hotel with an extremely welcoming smile from Carolyn in reception who booked us in efficiently and showed us to our rooms. After a tiring flight, we were grateful for a clean and well decorated room.
The next day, we were greeted by the fabulous Lisa!!!!! She can make even the most miserable laugh until it hurts. The pool and surroundings were clean and inviting.
I met Cosmos the night porter, who I have to say is a gentleman and always greets you with a smile and spends the time to get to know you. You don't find that in any other hotel, as many other tourists commented when they joined us when their flights were cancelled due to the volcanic ash.
Sammy the rep was fabulous. You really appreciate having a professional on the job when things go wrong (volcanic ash). The second week (which was not part of the holiday) saw us invaded by other visitors from other hotels that were 5* AI. These people became part of the family, as that is how it feels at sweet memories. The owner Demetri, opened his rooms for these new arrivals and they were cleaned and ready in a day!! That is a feat in itself! Demetri is a friendly, considerate gentleman who knows how to treat his staff!
I enjoyed every moment of my unexpected extended holiday. This was due to the fact that all the staff at Sweet Memories are friends now and always will be. Thank you for making everything perfect!XX

I was worried about travelling alone because of security issues, but this place was really safe and family orientated. The staff, a mix of locals and Brits are very friendly and pretty much help you with anything that you need if not at least they give a lot of information to help you with. I left my apartment unlocked most times and never ever had anything missing for 3 weeks. Their restaurant and bar provide a cheap alternative especially when we all got stranded for a week and ran out of cash and their mini shop is the cheapest in the area. Of course the best bit is the swimming pool, I just felt like it was mine as I have such a spectacular view of it the entire time, mind it's not heated and can be cold in spring. The pool is also protected by a building that it is relatively more comfortable than outside the hotel during chilly windy days. The hotel is 10-15 minute walk from the beach which provides a good stroll in the area and a welcome exercise for sunbathers not to mention away from all the noise from the Strip which is 5-15 min walk. From my room I have a spectacular view of the church up the hill and see the golden red suset too although that wouldn't be the case for everyone. When it's not a busy season, just for added comfort best to request for rooms not next to the road although the road is never really busy and noisy. I really had an awesome time and special thanks to Lisa and Caroline they definitely serve you with a smile, giggles more like even if they haven't slept a wink.

We had a week in the Evelena apartments and were due to return home when our Belfast flight was cancelled and Olympic bused the full coach of us to the Sweet Memories apartments were we all checked in very effeciently.It was located near supermarkets, bars and restruants and a short walk to the main strip and the beach. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was bright and spacious and well kitted out for a self catering stay. The pool area had plenty of sun loungers with padded covers and the pool itself was a good size. Around the apartments were planted shrubs and trees which were well maintained and there was a small play area for children. It was a friendly place for families and couples alike and the bar area had reasonably priced drinks and snacks served throughout the day. Lisa was one of the staff who served behind the bar and although the staff were all nice she had a lovely way with her, enjoyed a joke and was always smiling and good at her job. We had a problem 1 night when the lights fused and the maintenance guy was around within minutes and had it sorted very quickly. It was an anxious time for a lot of the quests but everyone certainly made us feel welcome. My only criticisim would be the towels were only changed once but then again they didn't know how long we would be with them.Overall it was good and we would return to these apartments.

My wife and I have just returned from an excellent weeks Easter break at Sweet Memories apartments.For only being 2 star accomodation we thought that it was excellent value for money. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you.After just one week there you would have thought we had known Lisa and Caroline for years! We are just home and are now booking up for a week in October.We can't wait to go back. Our best holiday ever.
