I found myself in Cyprus, with some friends for a wedding, from 19-24th of September. The couple to be married, had the courtesy to book and pay for us the accomodation during the wedding weekend. (We really appreciated that! Thank you Anna and Konstantinos!)
Unfortunately, the hotel didn't meet anybody's standards.
The room was not at all a three star hotel room.
The carpet in ours was really dirty, the room itself was full of dust and had only one window, that barely let some light in. Our bathroom was not once cleaned, during our 5 days stay there. Just changing the towels.
There was only one old lady trying to clean the whole hotel and she only had two hands I guess.
Our friends' rooms were in worst condition than ours. They found ants on their pillows and trimmed nails on the bathroom floor, as soon as they checked in. They asked immediately to change room and got another on the 3rd floor.
We on the other hand, were not in luck and when we asked to change room they told us that it was almost impossible because it was Sunday and had only one housekeeper and wasn't easy to clean all the rooms on time. Like I said, just two hands!
The fridge in another girl's room was upside down and all the fridges had black mold on their shelves... How nice!
And of course, not once they vacuumed!
The breakfast was just ok. It was served from 6.30 till 10.00 (not bad at all), but nothing much. Usually by 9.30 most of the food was gone, but you could ask for anything you needed from the dinning personel.
Also one night we asked the reception for a painkiller and they responded that the hotel didn't has a pharmacy and that we sould try our luck at the nearby convenience store (periptero).
On the positives are that we could use the Gym and Swimming pool from the nearby hotel Holiday inn.
To be fare, the personnel really did the best they could. They were all polite and always trying to help. But what can you do if the manager don't care to have a clean, organised hotel that meets the standards of a three star hotel.
I mean, nobody asked for luxury. Just a clean, honest, money to value hotel room.
