Was also at the hotel in the 'last week' mentioned in previous reviews.
We were booked self-catering, so didn't have to contend with the food shortages, although people we spoke to didn't seem to have experienced anything too bad. We did have breakfast in the hotel, which was good, if a little short of fruit (good local oranges only).
Food in the bar was slightly disappointing, unless you want chips with everything. Beer and cocktails good.
There is a taverna at the top of the hill, which can be walked to in 10-15 minutes, with excellent food and service. Otherwise we took the bus or taxi into town and ate in some reasonably good places.
You can walk into pathos port along the coast in 30-40 minutes and it's quite a pleasant walk with good views, but there are quite a few hotels being built along the strip, so it'll become more urbanised soon.
The hotel gym was very hot (air con not on) and a little basic, but perfectly ok for a little work out. Pools and sun loungers good, and there is a small cove just to the right of the hotel where you can swim in the sea.
Staff and general service was excellent and helpful. Despite it being end of season (staff were busily arranging flights home to see families) it felt like a personal, friendly service.
As for the room, it was comfortable and cool enough not to need the aircon. TV seemed hit and miss about which channels you could get in which room, but at the end of the day, you don't go to cyprus to watch eastenders... Bathroom fine, plenty of hot water, good shower.
Booked through olympic and probably the only negative thing i'd comment on was the length and tedious nature of the rep noel's welcome talk - take a pillow or give it a miss.
Hotel entertainment variable - very friendly 'host' who has a sense of fun that verges on the offensive (see comments in earlier reviews), but evenings looked good from the one or two that we saw.
All in all, a good holiday and very lucky with the weather for this time of year!
