“Love the food here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Great place to eat out in Cyprus! I go here every time I go to my holiday home! They have a pool which you can go in while waiting for your meal, they have outside and inside dining area! Perfect food, decent price! Could not complain!

If you are in the area you will not beat the restauruant here, provided you steer clear of pizzas and the like. The food is excellent and the portions generous, served by a very professional and friendly staff. The poolside area is also very pleasant, though the shoreline itself a little disappointing, There is a noisy hotel across the road.

There the praise stops, I'm afraid. The manager is a most affable man (when on site) but is sadly long on promises, short on delivery.

At his prior request, on arrival I handed over the £900 balance due in cash to pay for 2 apartments housing 6 adults and a two-year-old for a week. I requesed a receipt at the time, which was promised but never delivered despite almost daily requests. We asked if there was a spare microwave available for our apartment - answer 'yes' but never delivered. We paid up a further £20 for breakfasts for a late guest. £2 change was due and we never got this either, despite repeated requests once more. Indeed, the manager even remarked that I made so many requests, but they were always the same ones!

You take pot luck with accomodation, which the complex leases off private owners and sublets to guests. Cleanliness is poor with the second apartment (with the toddler) thowing up 3 dead cockroaches and one live one. The apartments have self-catering capacity but you need to provide your own washing up liquid, tea towels etc. There is no room/cleaning service. Some are partially refurbished - incomplete apparently bacause of the recent Cypriot banking crisis.

We were there for your son's wedding. The reception was held at the complex. We had a lovely evening but again I understand that promises were not kept. Only one waiter (owner?) took all the orders for the meal and this caused a needlessly long wait. A Muslim guest ended up being served pork. Again, there is nothing but praise for the restaurant staff, who explained that they had to follow orders.

None of this spoilt the evening but it should not have happened. I understand that it resulted in a reduced price being paid for the event.

In summary: great restaurant, dismal management and accommodation, which is a pity all things considered. The gradings I have given focus on the non-restaurant part of the complex, to give a balanced view. Everything re the restaurant and its staff is VG - Excellent, but avoid pizzas, burgers etc, which are not really what they are there to serve. The restaurant boasts a Tripadvisor award sticker at an entrance to the restaurant. I can't believe it applies to the complex as a whole.

Room Tip: See above. Stay elsewhere, or at least do not commit to staying here until you have seen what you ar...

I have given the Blue Spice complex in Pernera, Cyprus a 5* rating not for the apartment but for the complex and staff who work there as it truly is a gem of a place. All the staff are so friendly and helpful and you can tell they are happy working there. It is very relaxing with excellent food and swimming pool. The apartment is basic and dated but has everything you need including a washing machine. Views from the large balcony are beautiful and picturesque looking out to sea and beach. There is a second balcony with a side view. Plenty of sun beds and parasols and lovely little seating areas to relax in.

Room Tip: Room 1 has beautiful views
