We arrived on Sunday 28th July and was greeted by a friendly receptionist, I read another review asking for a upgrade, which I did and he said that he will have a look and that it will be an extra 80 euros. Which I was happy to pay, then he told me that I had the sea view already and the other two couples Were not, but they didn't want to upgrade. But here comes the BUT their rooms were actually the same as mine and they had a sea view too. Also because I checked in early we were told we have to pay 50 euros or wait till 2pm, even though the room was ready because when we paid he gave us 3 rooms just like that.
That was the moaning bit now for the best parts of the holiday, I loved the pool area, swim up bar, always sun beds. Meal times was great lots of choice, breakfast was my favourite time of day.
Beach was cool, loads of water sports to do, I went on a jet ski for 15 minutes which only cost 60 euro for two people, great fun. Staff very friendly!
Captains bar, is the place to be after dinner loads of different cocktails to pick from, mine was the blue lagoon!, our favourite waitress was Gianna who always knew what we wanted and always smiling and being friendly.
Lots to do during the day, table tennis, volleyball, football, water polo, darts, pool, etc..
I would defiantly stay here again, I will just get different flight times. So as my title of my review states, Not a good start, but by the end very good hotel!!! I would recommend this hotel if you are thinking of staying in Cyprus.
