Having read some of the negative reviews I wasn't expecting the hotel to be as good as it was. We were a group of 11 with a fairly complex booking including interconnecting rooms for 2 families with young children and a couple of single rooms. As expected check in late at night wasn't straight forward but the check in staff did their best and almost gave us what we had booked, we had to go back to reception a few times but got it sorted in the end.
We were there for 2 weeks and I must say the staff were extremely helpful, we made friends with Aysen, one of the waiters in the restaurant who was brilliant and reserved us the same table (for 11) overlooking the sea every day for breakfast and dinner. The food was OK but a bit samey after 2 weeks but a couple of nights it was pretty poor. They hold wedding receptions in the hotel at weekends and the kitchen staff are preoccupied catering for them so hotel guests get whatever they can throw together which wasn't very good.
The pool is lovely and getting a subbed was never a problem even in August, the gym and spa are lovely (I like to use the gym and found it to be as good as any other hotel I'd stayed in).
The rooms are nice and I thought the minibar was reasonable contrary to some of the other reviews written.
As with everything in life you get what you pay for it isn't the Ritz, it's a reasonably priced descent standard hotel in Cyprus. I can't understand people that pay the prices this hotel charges but expect a top quality 5 star experience. If you want top quality 5 star you need to be spending 5 times what this hotel charge.
