We agree totally with the previous Mixed bag review.
Positives : Lovely Bar area, well stocked shop, friendly staff and attentive manager when any problem was solved immediately, spacious appartrment/Studio, weather fantastic, trips were great, Thompson rep superb.
Negatives: Pool constantly warm and full of inflatables, if you want to swim not a chance for ball games and lilos!! Sometimes it was like a warzone!! Needs to be supervised a little. The indoor pool lovely and cold but again surrounding area unlean and smelt of toilets! Husband used the gym a few times but no air conditioning!!! Cleanliness poor, lots of kids including my own suffered ear infections from the pool, appartments dirty and bathroom didnt see a cleaner for the two weeks. Towels and beds were changed every three days. Floors smelt of either cat urine or dirty mops, not sure!! Bins emptied every other day which is ok for a small family of 3 like ours but I dont know how larger families who maybe cooked in the appartment coped??
Other reviews have mentioned the friendly welcome of a fruit juice and wet wipe...great! The waiter took our cases on a trolley all of 30 yards and waited for a tip whilst we started to unpack!! He didnt show us around the appartment or anything!! As we'd only just arrived we had no small change and felt forced to give a 5 Euro tip!!!! Not a good start! Cats were around a lot but didnt really bother us apart from the smell! The location was awful, in the middle of residential area that is like squalor!! stinking bins, filthy roads and pavements, poorly lit and just awful!! Once you get past that bit its a short walk to the harbour which is nice
The fee of 49 Euros for a 2 week safety deposit box was a rip off and the prices to eat out in Cyprus has gone up dramatically but then thats the same every where I suppose.
Recommend the Cruises from the harbour...great value for money. The jeep safari day was expensive but worth every penny as you see a lot of the island and its great fun too! The tiger boat ride was fantastic if you like near death experiences...but it was amazing!
All in all I would not go back to this accomodation or in fact Cyprus. been to cyprus twice and thats my lot im afriaid. Would not recommend the King Jason but then I know a lot of people loved it so maybe its down to expectations. For a supposed 4 star mine were quite high and it didnt match up at all.
