Travelled with 8 other girls in July 2012, we expected the worst but when we arrived at the hotel every thing was amazing.
Arrived at around midnight and were checked in within about 10 minutes. Got given rooms 120, 121 and 127. All studios and so much better than anything we expected, very clean and had everything that we needed. Room 120 has a king balcony and is the one and only place for pre drinks! Get the air con!! Was so hot without it, 49 euros for the week and definitely worth it. Didn't bother with the safe because they were all kept in reception and as we were on the top floor we felt our stuff was pretty safe, nothing got stolen.
Went straight out on the first night, less than a 5 minute walk to the strip. Bombarded by club reps trying to sell us deals, just say no! Felt a bit lost at first but we soon settled in a bar and managed to get good deals between 9 of us.
Would definitely recommend Monkey Business and Square Bar! Both amazing, 6 euros for two cocktails, a shot and a fishbowl! All the bars close about 2 and everyone goes to the clubs. All of them are pretty expensive to get in and for drinks, Starskys defo my fave. 10/15 euros entry to most of the big clubs and drinks between 5 and 10 euros. If you survive the night then go to River reggae or Aqua which are the after parties and finish about 8/9am.
Expected the pool to be rowdy and busy but it never got too full and always managed to get sunbeds. Food around the pool was good and cheap and 2 for 1 cocktails! All of the staff were really friendly and dealt with all the drunk people well. Maids came to clean the room most days and happily cleaned up our drunken mess from the night before. There's a supermarket just by reception and has everything that you will need for the week.
Loads of places to eat in the square and nearer the beach. The best food by far was the pollo pizza, I already miss it. 2 euros for a slice, I would recommend getting a whole pizza. Snapy's is also good for drunk food on the way home, especially the "drumpsticks".
Seriously ignore all the bad reviews, this hotel and Ayia Napa are AMAZING.
Already planning to go again next year to the same hotel because we miss everything so much!
