I was a bit apprehensive about going to Ayia Napa as I've never really been into clubbing and I just wanted a week for sun, pool, reading and chilling out. The Melpo Antia was perfect for this. They have a really low tolerance for people who just want to get drunk, behave like idiots and generally wreck it for everyone else. On our last day there were two guys drinking whiskey from a bottle by the pool and generally annoying people. The staff dealt with it very well despite the fact the two idiots tried their best to intimidate the receptionist (my heart went out to her, these two were nasty pieces of work) but this was the only bit of trouble we saw all week. I wouldn't recommend this place for a rowdy holiday, you won't be welcome.
The rooms were lovely, very clean and free air con which was needed. We had a studio and it was very large with a modern TV, safe and grand kitchen. The rooms also have hair dryers, I couldn't find mention of this on the website and brought mine so that was a bit annoying. The pool is a good size, very clean and lots of sun loungers but get there before 10 if you want a good spot. The drink at the bar is great, the daily cocktail specials are always good and the staff don't use measures! The breakfast wasn't really my thing but there is a lot of choice. The location is really great, very central but far away enough from the clubs that you don't get much noise at night. The staff are really nice, the manager, Michalis I think his name is, is really friendly and always up for the chats about the culture and the area and he will tell you if he thinks you don't smile enough! For restaurants I definitely recommend Fiji and Los Bandidos.
