We have just recently returned from our ten night stay in the Adams Beach Hotel. It is a lovely hotel however definately not a five star. I normally knock a star off anyway when going abroad so i would say that this is a good four star.
On arrvial you will be asked to pay a 100 euro deposit for any minibar purchases or purchases made against your room. This is refundable at the end of the holiday or you can use it to pay for anything you have put on your room card. A safety deposit box will cost you, it cost us 16 euro for 10 nights although its very rare that you have to actually pay for them these days. It could be free.
The rooms are on the small side but we are hardly in the room so it doesn't make a difference to us, they were clean so that is the main thing. Although, I do think tea/coffee making facilities could be provided!
The pool area is nice and we used to head there after the beach and it was quite hard to get sunbeds due to people reserving beds all day and not actually using them. For a "Five Star" hotel, the fact that they don't have any rules for this kind of thing is frustrating. We would go back to the pool at 2pm struggle to get a sunbed and nobody would come and collect their towels for 3-4 hours on the other sunbeds. There should be rules for reserving sunbeds all day, its not fair on other guests seeing as the hotel is so large.
The reception was well manned at all times, the staff were polite and helpful if a little forgetful. They did tend to give the wrong information at times instead of just being honest. They seemed eager to please however i prefer the correct information instead of the "people pleasing" information.
If you require a late check out, it will cost you 80 euros - i think this is extortionate, I have never had to pay that much before!! Although, because we had some complaints we managed to get this for free with some persuasion.
Breakfast was okay, it was what you would expect for a buffet breakfast. We only at there twice and didn't bother for the rest of the holiday.
The main downside to this hotel is the amount of russians, they are rude, obnoxious and don't understand how to queue. I think the hotel seems to cater more for their russian guests.
We used to go to Nissi beach which was a 2 minute walk from the hotel and just over the road, it was 5 euro for 2 sunbed and 2,50 for an umbrella. We was happy to pay this instead of sitting on the sand. There is loads of watersports which we took use of and they are a well priced, we went paragliding, Jet Skiing and on the Flyfish. There is beach bars that play music which we enjoyed while sunbathing. The sea is beautiful and crystal clear and you can walk out quite far before having to need to swim. The beach gets very busy so make sure you head there in the morning! There are people selling "Lovely Juice" along the beach, they have the best orange juice ever and it is frozen so very refereshing!
The centre of Ayia Napa is a 15 minute walk away or you can get a taxi for 8 euro, we took the latter option. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. Our favourites were Los Bandidos (Mexican) and Sage (French/European). You must try both! For Los Bandidos you will need to get your hotel to make a reservation.
We had the best holiday and I would 100% come back to Nissi Bay but not necessarily to the hotel, i found it to be very expensive for what you received. The hotel that has just been built next door looks very nice so we will definately be looking into that!
Also, if you are from england you don't need travel plugs as the rooms have english plug sockets!!
