We booked this holiday a year in advance as we have 4 children and can only take holidays during July and August. Originally we booked a 2 bedroom apartment at the neighbouring Marlita Beach Apartments, however when we arrived we were allocated 2 one bedroom apartments. We were extremely disappointed and contacted our rep early next morning to explain. She was absolutely fantastic and later that afternoon had arranged for us to stay next door at the Anastasia. We booked a self catering holiday but because of what happened Thomas Cook arranged for us to stay half board and not only that, we were given the most beautiful suite in the hotel with amazing beach views, it was amazing. The manager really went out of his way to make sure our every need was catered for.
The food at the hotel was excellent and the kids really enjoyed thebuffet. There was a tremendous choice and the waiters and waitresses were extremely helpful and very hard working. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Our room was cleaned every day and sheets and towels changed on a regular basis. Our maid was lovely and very friendly.
We used the pool facilites at the Marlita as the children loved the extensive gardens there and also the entertainers. They joined in all the activities including water polo, french bowls, water aerobics and football. The icing on the cake for this holiday was the superb weather. It was red hot for the whole fortnight. (factor 50 applied on a regular basis for the whole 2 weeks meant that no-one got burned )also if you are going with kids, be sensible and make sure they wear hats and T-shirts in the pool and cover from head to toe in factor 50 or more!!!!
Location was great. Far enough away from the nightlife to enjoy the peace and quiet in the evenings but close enough to Protaras strip if you wanted something different.
We would so much love to return to Cyprus but unfortunately it is rather expensive. It cost over £3,000 for the 2 weeks but was well worth it. Maybe in 2 years time we will go back. In the meantime if you have booked you will not be disappointed.
The best place to eat out if you want an alternative to the hotel food is the nearby Mojito restaurant - fabulous.
If you are planning to go have a fabulous time and make the most of your holiday by visiting as many places on the island as possible as the scenery is breathtaking. Hire out a car, it's not expensive but most of all have a really great time.
