“Just love this place”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

First time here, was back in 2001 on our honeymoon. Since then there has been a lot of changes. Came back last august 2011 after 10 years, and now we liked it a lot more. The rooms looks just the same, they are clean, don't look worn down at all. The service from the employees is great. The food is good, nothing to complain about it. Love the Cyprus food, Lamb Kleftiko is my favorite. One thing that was irritating was the air conditioning in the room, it made ​​a little to much noise, so the kids had trouble to sleep well. But overall, a perfect family resort.

We stayed here for one week in June`11, family with two little kids. The place is kind of like a scandinavian village, only you`ve got the nice and sunny weather and of course the sea wich is really nice in Cyprus! I personally don`t like like these kinds of travels where everything is set up for you and everyone you meet are norwegians and swedes. Why go to Cyorus for hanging out with your neighbors, I mean...but, with that said, we went here for the kids, and the kids loved the place! It was clean, nice pool areas, one of the restaurants at the complex was quite good (the other one served that typical charter-trashy food; fries, club sandwiches etc.) and the sea was amazing! Sandy Bay, wich is the closest beach, is perfect for little kids! And then of course you have Nissi Beach a ten minutes walk away, which is a bautiful and much bigger beach, full of partying teens not to mention.

The biggest dissappointment of the journey was the food! We had our best meals from the breakfast buffet at the hotel and the two dinners we had from the same hotel restaurant at night (il Fino). Other than this, all we got was pretty much trash! I would have struggeled if we were to stay here for more than one week.

So what can I say...the place deserves its 4 (or is it 5?) stars, but personally I will not come back either to this place or any other place similar to this. But if you enjoy this way of travelling (charter), then I will defnitely recommend this hotel, its nice and clean and perfect for little kids.

No more charter travelling for me.

Ps) The cleaning ladies stole my watch, so make sure you use the safe if you`re going here!

overall, a decent budget resort. the staff try pretty hard, and the pools are large and well kept. the included buffets if you opt for the meal plans are varied and of reasonable quality, with some good dishes. the little snack bar nearer the beach is lower quality greasy fried food - only recommended if you have a hangover. the kids activities are good, and there's a decent mix of people from various (mostly Nordic) countries. the accommodation is a little dated, but the hardworking cleaning staff keep it clean. one night the aircon was out all night - not good when it's 32+C at night! Took the whole night to fix it, and no-one on the resort slept well. daytime a/c costs extra - but that does make you think whether you really need it. beware of the noisy discos and amusement park next door to the property. if you have teenage kids this is fine, but with younger ones, you will get some disturbed sleep. the nearby beach is rocky and not good for sea access, but there's a good jogging/walking path.

We visited in August 2011, and we loved it. All the staff are friendly, and they will help you with any request you might have. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The children loved Lollo and Bernie, they could not believe their eyes when Lollo and Bernie visited our apartment. The show at night was also hugely popular, we all enjoyed it even though we have seen the show in Mallorca.
The food is good, especially the Greek Buffet. The supermarked had freshly baked bread and pastries every day.
All things considered we think it was a fantastic family resort, and will visit again.

Have visited this resort two times together with my family (ages 12-80).
This is not only a resort for family with small chidren, even teenagers and retired people enjoy it.
The beach at Sandy Bay is close to the resort and nice.

This was indeed a perfect resort for a family vacation; good appartments, very good restaurants, perfect breakfast, clean and warm pools, Sandy Bay Beach right outside the resort... you name it! I highly recommend this hotel and its friendly staff.
A tip: Ask for an appartment with balcony or terrace towards the garden or pool and not towards the nearby road/parking lot. We stayed in a 1-bedroom Family Appartment (no. 760) which had an excellent location towards the garden and with the balcony to the East, thereby avoiding the afternoon and evening sun (at that time of the day we have had enough sun!)
