“dont always listen to bad reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

we went on the 3oct 09 we got the abt 6pm and at first we thought we had got the wrong hotel as it didnt look like the pictures but we was in the apartments and not the main hotel which didnt bother us.. the rooms were bigger we had a kettle microwave and a hob for cooking on if we wanted but we was all in so the kettle came in handy first thing in a morning.. the room was cleaned every day and we got fresh towels every 2 days.. the beds where made daily as well plenty of loo roll was also left..
food was ok breakfast was normal sausage bacon eggs off all sorts beans toast cereal over fruits and they made omelets in front of u every morning...
the staff where all friendly and spoke good english..
dinner buffet was some times better than evening meal although there was always something to eat.. they also did nice bar meals inbetween normal meals which was included in the all inc... loads to drink if u like drink cocktails loacl drink as well ie pimms baileys etc.. 3 beers 2 local and calsberg
entertainment was ok bit boring some night but ok...
theres a nice walk round the bay to potaras town takes abt 15-20 mins but once you get there its just bars and restaurants there is hardley any shops everything is in the supermarkets but is nice... we went on the boat trip was only 10 euros was for a couple of hours nice tan off the sea lol... great for kids they had kids entertainment on as well... well think thats it i would give it a go if u just wanna chill for a weekxx

we stayed at the anastasia hotel, 5th time between the apartments and hotel last year entertainment rill did not disappoint this year ziko ramsey vlado emily and stacey and the rest of the team brilliant made us laugh so much, food was brilliant as usual staff always made us feel welcome.from keriacus to antri, but ziko and ramsey were our favourites better than the old days when thomas cook reps did the entertainment they were dreadful even though they were doing their best,so please do not let ziko and ramsey leave the entertainment would not be the same without them

We just came back from 11 nights All-Inclusive at the Anastasia on Sunday, and if we'd stayed 14 nights we'd have needed to buy another set of clothes.
We played tennis every day (on the best tennis court I have ever seen in a tourist hotel) and frequently walked into Protaras or along the excellent beach path (even walked past Fig Tree bay one day) and to the little church on a hill - but the food is just too good to resist.
Most people at home only have a sandwich for lunch, but at the Anastasia the selection and quality they put on was astounding - their freshly-made Pizzas were a real treat.
The bar and waiting staff were always pleasant, even to those that weren't pleasant to them (remember on All-Inclusive, it's not just the food that people over-indulge in).
The Animation Team? Well, a game of two halves. We don't much care for organised Water Polo, Killer Pool and Killer Darts etc, or the pointless and too loud day-time music around te main pool. But there is a 'Quiet' Adult pool between the main hotel and the Ausonia Apartments which was an oasis of calm (most of the time, one day a family turned up and just let their kids thrash about unaccompanied in the pool, which was really quite ignorant and selfish) - but then that's the cause of most holiday upsets anywhere - other ignorant brits acting selfishly. The Swedes on the other hand, were polite and fun.
The Animation Teams evening entertainment varied wildly - but on the plus side some of the 'productions' they put on were some of the best presented and most ambitious I've seen in a hotel of this class. Again, unfortunately, the music in the evening was unnecessarily loud (and I'm a DJ) and you only had to walk out of the hotel in the evening to hear how far some of the quite dreadful and inappropriate music was carrying - drowning out some of the fine acts in the Blue Spice accross the road. We heard several people complaining, and towards the end of our stay it had seemed to be sorted out.
We did the Red Bus Tour to Famagusta (every Thursday) 20 Euros each - well worth the money and a 2-hour boat trip from the guy down the beach path for 10 Euros each - both trips well worth the money.
Would I go again, definitely yes, but try to exercise a little more will power at lunchtime.

Food good, plenty of choice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean, linen changed regularly. Swimming pools were very clean. Entertainment provided each night but we did not take advantage of this as we went out most nights. Tried the red bus, can recommend the trip to Famagusta.

Just returned from this hotel on the 2nd September 2009. Was on an AI basis with my Husband and two young children. After reading recent reviews we were a little apprehensive to what we would find.

The hotel lobby looks impressive, reception staff are helpful to all your requests. Our room was too small to cater for a family of two adults and two children. The bathroom most certainly needs updating and problems were experienced with the temperature of the shower varying. The cleanliness of the room left a lot to be desired, even though beds were made and towels changed the cleaners never wanted to do anything else such as wipe down surfaces/vacuum etc.

The pool area is okay with a good amount of beds and umbrellas. Never once did we have a problem finding a sunbed.

Breaksfasts were good with a good variety of cereals (weetabix wow!), pastries and hot dishes. Fully recommend the waffles and the omlettes cooked outside. Lunch snacks were great from the bar menu with a range to for all sorts of tastes. Jacket spuds, burgers, pizza, toasties, pitta bread sandwiches etc. Evening meal were themed but were hit and miss. On these themed evenings you were sometimes struggling to fins something to your taste. My husband he will eat anything and will give any food a go but on the Arabian night struggles to find anything decent to eat and we ended up going out. I understand a few other guests were of the same opinion.

Entertainment - it seemed that they organised the entertainment on a shoe string budget, however the entertainment team worked hard. The mini disco for the kids was great although some of the adult entertainment was sometime wanting.

Bar staff sometimes appeared to be a little bit abrupt but the service was prompt, drinks on tap.

Overall location of the hotel was good, seafront position but i would certainly not pay the £3.00 per night supplement for the side seaview room. Would recommend the costal walks to Penera one way and Protarus the other. Also the Red Bus tours is good value for money and is a must to do. On Thursdays they run a trip through the border to Famagusta.

Would I take my family back to this hotel again no not unless it was refurbished. I cannot see where it gets it 4 stars from.

Myself and my daughter visited this hotel and on arrival were very pleased with the first impressions. We stayed in a twin room with air con in the main hotel itself. On arrival we upgraded to an all inclusive package and are pleased that we did so as the pound is so week against the Euro. There was a good choice of food for breakfat and Dinner although we both felt that Lunch choices could of been better.
There were no cockroaches whatsover! we never even heard or saw any during our week long stay. I did complain to reception on departure that we felt that the staff in the main bar (particularily a rather larger lady) could have provided alot better customer service...As there was never any acknowledgement or eye contact and you felt that you were doing her a diservice by even asking for a drink!!! Nevermind. The location of the Hotel was brilliant but watch out for the cypriot bloke called Chris, 45 yrs old (tatto on his arm) on the jetty towards the right hand side of the Hotel as he thought it was O,k to proposition my 15yr old daughter (after she had told him his age!) I did catch up with him obviously denied it but hopefully will think twice before trying it on with another child!!
Weather was fantastic and would definitely visit Cyprus again!

We returned to this hotel after having stayed here 10 years ago on our honeymoon, so knew that its location is a good walk from Protaras centre and it hasn't changed a bit, but I think that it could do with a lick of paint here and there at some stage soon as it's beginning to look tired.
The hotel is perfectly placed (in my opinion, which is why we returned) just a very short walk from a small beach where you can pay for sunbeds (2.50 euros per bed and the same for an umbrella). It's located on the outskirts of Protaras, closer to nearby Penera and is surrounded by other hotels, restaurants and bars so you aren't isolated.
We had booked a family room but were disappointed as it felt a cramped because of the extra 2 camp beds for the children but none the less, for the amount of time spent in the room, we managed. The bathroom was starting to look a little grubby and I found the shower was a bit of a nightmare. Even though it had a mixer tap, it would often just change to very hot or very cold water without notice and I got caught out several times, which got on my nerves! The maid changed teh towels every day, but you have to put the towels in the bath if you want them changing and the linen was changed every 3-4 days.
Yes, we did encounter pigeons on our balacony - but tied a small pink carrier bag to the railing and problem solved! The view from the balcony was OK as we had a view to the rear of the hotel overlooking a pool which I think belongs to the Ausonia Apts and by the middle of our first week, we preferred this pool because we found lots of older kids were playing ball games in the shallow end of the Anastasia pool and the younger children struggled to with room to play and swim about.
We were staying on a half board basis but you can upgrade to all inclusive when you arrive for a supplement per person, per day, but we decided not to. At breakfast there was a good choice of cereals, pastries, cooked breakfast, etc and freshly cooked omelettes outside.
For evening meals they would put up a menu each morning for that evening's theme and during our second week when we knew what the themes were like, we asked if we could swap our evening meal option for a lunch time meal (buffet style for the AI guests). We were told that this wasn't a problem and did this on a number of days and then would eat out at local restaurants in the evening instead of staying at the hotel.
We tried several places but be warned though the prices compared to the UK aren't cheap! Especially because of the current exchange rate but remember it's a holiday so splurge a little!
I would also say be careful when walking on the pavements because there are loose paving slabs and some are missing altogether.
There is a walkway on the front which connects Penera beach to Protaras beach all in wood and looks fairly new and wasn't here the last time we were there. It's a nice walk and has several shady stop offs along the way if you find it too hot and also has water fountains but I'm not sure if the water is safe to drink!

All in all, we had a great relaxing holiday lazing by the pool, but having been twice now, we won't be going back.
