Ranked #101 of 102 Hotels in Ayia Napa
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I stayed here back in 2010 with 4 girls! We had an absolute ball and as reflected you get what you pay for. Mama and Papa could not have been nicer. Group of guys we met there got charged for the mess in their room but fair play it was pretty minging state they left it in.

The next year on our visit to Ayia Napa we decided to drag another 4 girls along with us. Again Mama and Papa were lovely, when we were buying stuff from their bar etc....until day 2. I went for a shower to come out and find that all our towels had been taken out of our bedrooms. Upon asking Mama why she shrugged me off giving me no answers. I then went to see my Thomas Cook rep who said she had taken them out because we had gotten them dirty....erm towels? Really? I was not impressed at all. However the girls and myself went and bought our own and didn't let it ruin our holiday. We had a ball. Until the last day upon check out when Mama refused to give us our passports back because we had dirty bedsheets!!!! They had not been washed the entire time we had been there! And also, we hardly even slept in the beds because we were out all night and sleeping by the pool all day!!

Shout out for Raj the barman but what a legend.

All in all a hotel which is really somewhere to lay your head....just be prepared for charges upon departure....

mama n papa were lovely but the rooms told a different story! no hot water for a shower there was no plug in either the sink or the bath so couldnt get a bath the shower had no holder for the shower head so you had to hold the shower head all the time. self catering in my room there was no cooker or anything just a fridge and a kettle so had to eat out all the time which is extremly expensive. there was a few cockroaches in our room when we arrived so had to shout staff to remove them. if you are wanting anything for breakfast it is ok if you like a lie in as they dont really serve food before 9am and also there is a large selection on the menu but not actually avaiable to eat. if you are scared of strangers walking in the complex and tryng to break into your room papa n mama knows everyone that stays within the complex so they get rid of any unwelcome visitors.

We booked this holiday a while back and being a group of lads we didn’t do any background work on the hotel. So when we finally did a week before we were due to go panic set in and we was worried what we lets ourselves into. There was no need to worry at all, it’s what you expect from a hotel like this (18-30's) Big Momma and Poppa are really nice people and we had no problems with them at all. The rooms were basic but for the amount of time you spent in there it didn’t matter. bar staff were all sound and looked after you with good measure of drinks. Ayia Napa was amazing and would defo recommend the Silent party! Reps will put you on spot as soon as you get there and try sell you everything! we got DONE CLEAN!!! but we still had good time met some class people would defo go back!!

After reading the reviews we really considered not staying here, but then no-one ever writes good reviews so I though I would. Typical budget apartments (You get what you pay for), excellent location just off the strip but far enough away to be quite. Rooms are basic but clean, (The odd cockroach but you learn to put up with that), our room was cleaned every 2nd day. Found the staff to be quiet friendly. We arrived at the start of the season and the place was freshly painted and the pool and bar were always clean and inviting. We were terrified of meeting big mama after reading reviews before going, but she couldn't have been nicer always making sure everything was ok and asking if we needed anything, and Mario and the other staff were equally excellent hosts. I would definitely consider going back again. Just don't think I'd bother with the 18-30's package the rep's try sell you as you are tied to doing everything they want you to do and not your own thing. Most the stuff they sell you in the package is free or you can buy it at a later date but they force you to buy as soon as you arrive and really put you on the spot.

I cannot believe how dramatic people have been on the reviews below. You are supposed to evaluate the scores based on value for money - you don't pay much money so why are you expecting The Ritz Hotel? The £260.00 I paid for flights and hotel for 7 nights at The Salmary completely reflected the value I got. Yeah it's not the cleanest place in the world and you wouldn't put your head under the water in the pool but you are getting exactly what you pay for. Me and my friend stayed in Room 18 which was a little apartment. It was completely fine and we are fairly girly girls so were quite scared after reading the reviews. I didn't see a single cockroach in our room once although there was an ant invasion on the last day. The thing is, you won't even be in the hotel half the time - it literally serves as a base. We had no problems with theft or noise or anything at all. There were a few fights in the hotel but that was between guests. Shower was fine, cooker was fine, beds were fine. You will need to stock up on washing up liquid and toilet roll and Super Noodles and you will be fine. You get along with all the other guests fairly well and we ended up having pre-drinks with some of the others in order to save money before going out. Went with Club 18-30 Thomas Cook - our rep Dave Robertson was amazing. Had the best holiday ever in Napa and would 100% go back to The Salmary - Request Room No.18!!

Stayed here with some friends, had a Great Time!! Room was clean, service was ok, (really didn't ask for anything), pool was cool :) . To be honest, I just stayed here for sleeping and getting something to eat when i was hungry. The most time we were away, at the beach, cafes, and clubs. They also have a club "Starskys", and they give you tickets at the reception if you want to go.

If you're not looking for quality hotels, first class services, an excellent location and you're with a bunch of friend just having a great time at Ayia Napa, i strongly recommend this hotel.
