“Wonderful hotel and friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

My first time back to Cyprus for 6 years (having lived there for 7 years). I took pot luck at choosing a hotel. I knew the area and want somewhere out of the main 'noise' but within easy walking distance to the town centre. Reception was a warm welcome (despite the late hour). Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Aircon, Hair dryer. Ironing facilities were on the lower floor by the gymnasium. Free WIFI in pool and lounge area (login codes given at reception). Private car parking for guests. Altogether my wife and I were very pleased with our stay (2 weeks) and would definitely use this hotel again. PS. I would love to see some kind of book swap ...I got through a number of books by the pool side and would have been happy to donate them so that others may use them rather than pay the high prices of books available locally.

It is a 3star hotel in terms of of the rooms and the choice of food but the hotel area and the staff are 5star. Very family friendly, good location and in a walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars and luna park for evening entertainment. The beach is not the best with most of it run by sun bed letting companies but it has quite a few nice restaurants, kids play area and a wide choice of boat trips. Very good overall!

Nice hotel. Private parking area for your rental car and at the beach boulevard.
Good room with balcony and clean hotel and pool area.
Only BIG minus is that you have to pay an extra € 3,- (a day!!) for using the fridge (which has a lock on it).
For the room price it is ridiculous!

We have visited this hotel end of October, and we had an excellent time. Everything was perfect, the service, the food and the atmosphere. The rooms have been recently renovated and the design is modern and stylish. The staff of the hotel was very nice and helpful, especially Diana.
The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to Limanaki. We are definitely going back again. And we strongly recommend it.

Great spot near the main road of AN entertainment, across the road from the harbour and Limansaki beach, and 30 mins walk along the boardwalk promenade to Sandy beach then Nissi beach. I booked a sea view room over looking the pool, but wasn't allocated one - instead had a side view overlooking the road. Note for Travel Republic clients, the hotel and TR need to resolve descriptions ie what exactly constitutes a side sea view etc. Despite being virtually full, Diana from the management team resolved this very well, upgraded us for night 1 and organised the right room for the rest of the stay. All the staff were helpful and courteous and the guests, rooms and grounds were well looked after. Room 221 was a good size, modern and well equipped with great view west over the pool and sea. Breakfast was OK, could do with more fresh fruit and better variety of cooked options. Swim up pool bar was not in use and looked like it had been out of action for some time, which was a shame as it should be a nice feature and instead looked rather neglected. The pool area is lovely although it's worth noting there's not much at all for children other than a paddling pool. The entertainment was limited to bingo in the evenings which seemed to suit some guests. Overall the hotel has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and I would visit again.

Room Tip: If a view matters to you, be specific about what view you want and select room type carefully eg sea...

I've just returned from a 10 night stay at the Faros hotel.
Maybe it's the best 3 star hotel that I've ever seen. Good service, affable reception staff.
The weather was fine - 29-30. I think it's not bad for the middle of October.
Excellent hotel, excellent location. Strongly recommended! -)
