We are a family of 4, our children are 7 and 3. Just returned from 10 very hot and lovely relaxing days at the Olympic Lagoon! I will mostly reiterate what others have said on here, fantastic hotel, excellent food and choice of restaurants, very friendly staff and fantastic pools and grounds.
Having met several people who returned this year after visiting last summer, we learned that the hotel have spent 18 million Euro improving the hotel, which included the pirates ship (excellent for young kids), the lazy river (excellent for all), and 2 fabulous top class restaurants (one japanese and one greek meze - both which you must book and can visit once per week). Food of a very high quality in both - point to note, no separate children's menu, if you've got fussy kids, feed them nuggets first)!
The hotel really caters for everyone young and old, couples, families..... saw lots of weddings but as it was 38 degrees in the shade plus every day, I personally think it's a bit too hot in August!! Met a few wedding couples who said they lasted as long as they could in their wedding dresses / outfits!
Range of food fantastic, as is the alcohol available all inclusive. Great cocktails, beer is Kappa or Keo which are both nice. Bar staff very very friendly, most impressed. In fact most staff exceptionally friendly. We had a family room with divider, lovely room, very modern and clean. Great garden overlooking the pool area.
Restaurants open at 7pm in the evening, kids disco from 8-9pm including dancing / games, my youngest loved it although I didn't think it was the best kid disco I've ever seen. Followed by bingo, then various evening entertainment, magician, hypnotist, dancers, elvis impersonator, all pretty good although the hypnotist swore too much considering that so many kids were still up.
So overall a fantastic and highly recommended hotel. Only a few negative things to say, however these are not really a reflection on the hotel. Our flight over was full of very noisy, drunk and swearing teenagers and others on the way to Ayia Napa. I guess I should have expected it having 2 armed police by the door when we boarded, have to say I was shocked at being on a Thomas Cook flight travelling to a premium hotel with a load of kids on the way to Ayia Napa that had to be told several times by the air stewards that when the seatbelt sign was on, they must stop moving around and put their seatbelts on. It was like being on an aircraft full of noisy swearing monkeys with ants in their pants....... The other thing, and I don't want to sound like a snob, but there were an awful lot of "chavs" staying in the hotel....... I can't think of a nicer way to put it unfortunately....! But other than the fact that I never go to the same place twice, it is the one thing that would definitely stop me returning...... Maybe this again, was due to the proximity to Ayia Napa, but still not something I expected as it wasn't a cheap holiday. Having 2 of our towels thrown in the pool by one group when we tried to reserve our sunbeds (like everyone else as there was a limited amount of sunbeds by the kid's pools), is just one example of the type of people I'm talking about, smoking over their kids and swearing a lot......you catch my drift....
Hire a car if it's not too hot!!! It's worth seeing a few sights, Farmagusta is a spooky and moving day it, definitely worth a visit, and Ayia Napa harbour is lovely. Just shut your eyes when you drive past Mcdonalds, KFC and Pizza Hut.....................!!!!
p.s. I have friends who got married here in June and loved every minute.
