We stayed in the apartments from the start of August for 2 weeks. The apartments are very basic with limited facilities which suit young people perfectly. Be prepared to fork out 35 euro per week for air conditioning which is an unwelcome expense. The location is ideal with the main strip almost 5 minutes away and also major fast-food and supermarkets a similar distance. The entire staff are extremely helpful and friendly throughout the day. Our sheets, towels and entire apartments were cleaned every 2 days and they did a fantastic job. The bar staff were extremely friendly throughout the day, the food and drink they served were top notch and quite cheap.The clubs we loved were Bedrock, Castle and Car-wash. Ayia Napa is quite dear except vodka and fast food.
However I can't emphasize to the people reading this review not to trust the deceitful, despicable, slimy, dishonest and slightly smelly owner of the hotel- Francis (Frankie). He works during the night and throughout the early morning of the day. Do not be fooled by his friendly and patient exterior as he initially presents himself as. During the first week we got on well with him, however during the second week our funds dried up and so did our business in the bar. His alter ego emerged and he showed his true character a slimy business man that only wants your money and is totally fake. He constantly hackled us and began disrupting us every night. Our actions had not changed but he did. He began insulting us as Irish and Ireland as a country and constantly stood outside our room hurling abuse by the pool throughout the second week. He then began physically threatening us and claimed to be a member of the Cypriot mafia and eventually snapped and attacked 3 of us. We genuinely were not in the wrong and as he was a blood thirsty business man trying to force us to give him business. Despite this corrupt man we had a fantastic stay in the Aphelandra and in Ayia Napa and will definatly return there. Be sure to go take it easy before the booze cruise as we went on extremely hungover and tired which impacted on our voyage. Nissi Beach is amazing with taxi's costing no more than 2 euro p.p. We were 18-19 years old but I would recommend it for 20-25 year olds. Its truly amazing.
