Well what can i say ,the hotel has undergone an amazing transformation and in so little time as well from since we were there last year in june/july its truly special .
The rooms are so spacious and modern and the walk in showers which i so much asked to be put it on my last review must have been heard because they`re amazing ,the flat screen tv on the walls is a plus as well as the brand new fridges which keep the drinks well cold :O),
even kept an icecream frozen for 2 days it was that good ,the glass fronted balconys also add to its modernisation . Also the honeymoon suites are lovely. So much has been done to this hotel to bring it into the 21 century and as the manager said theres still more to come with the upgrading of the garden suites and the outdoor bar area so it will be amazing to see what becomes of those areas ,.

Being regulars to this hotel coming every year for the past 10 years we have come to know and love the staff at this hotel from the management Makis, Diana, Christina and the bar staff Andy , Demetris,Artemis and Petra who always had a smile and were the best ,also Monica in the restaurant and her girls who are always happy to serve with a smile. As for the food, there is always something to choose, a good selection from hot meats and vegetables to salads, cheeses, fruits and desserts. The barbeque nights are really good with local specialities.

there is 2 little gripes to this very memorable holiday 1,please sort out the wifi sometimes it works in places and others it doesnt and the animation this year is more russian orientated than some people would like but as the animator this year is Vlad, I guess he`s russian but thats a minor issue as entertainment in general is not our first priority .

The pool area as always is spotless with Antonio (the lifeguard) always tidying up with a smile ,and the pool bar is good too for drinks in the pool to keep you cool.

So in general this is a great hotel with excellent staff and ideally located near the beach and we look forward to seeing you all again in sept

We have just returned for a family Holiday at the Faros. As always we had a wonderful time. Derek and I have been staying in this Hotel for a number of years (at least 9) and will continue to do so as long as we are able. The Hotel is situated in a very good position, the Hotel staff are nice - especially Demetris and Andy who are fantastic and an asset to this company. They are always happy and very helpful, also Monica from the restaurant is very happy and helpful.
The refurbishment of the hotel room is brilliant and cannot wait to stay in one.
We have just booked to return in September and look very much to being there again for a relaxing holiday.

We are just back from a very enjoyable week at the Faros Hotel . The hotel is in a very good location for bars, restaurants, the pleasure park and a short stroll to the Harbour. The hotel itself is very clean, has a lovely big swimming pool area and plenty of welcoming staff. The only downside I could say is that there was not a lot of choice of food, but what there was was well presented and was always hot. A big thankyou to Diana, Andy,Dimitris, Petra and the waiter who never stopped smiling whose name we cannot pronounce (sorry) for making our stay even more enjoyable.

Room Tip: We stayed in the garden suites and it was very quiet

We have yet again spent our early summer holiday at the Faros Hotel and as always enjoyed a fantastically relaxing holiday with a warm welcome and great amenities. After 11 years we still rave about Ayia Napa and this excellent hotel. In particular our stay is always made more pleasurable by the welcome and service we receive from Demetris who manages the bar and restaurant, always with a smile and time to chat with our whole family. The place just would not be the same without him and Andy who take great care of us.
