I stayed here in July on a clubbing holiday with 7 friends.
There was only one good thing about the hotel and that was the cleanliness, the rooms were very well cleaned. This hotel feels like a concrete jungle, there are no trees or any gardens so for the whole week all you see is grey which became very depressing.
The room situation was terrible, we had a 1 bedroom apartment for 4 of us, we paid for air conditioning assuming it would be in all areas of the apartment however it was only in the main bedroom. This was terrible as this hadn't been made clear to us when we paid a high price, and as a result of this we had to force 4 beds into a tiny room which was only designed for 2 beds, making it impossible to move and we couldn't even open the door at night if someone was sleeping.
The bathroom was absolutely tiny no room at all.
I urge you to pay the little bit extra to be at a hotel nearer the beach or in Nissi Bay, you will have a much better, happier holiday experience and it really isn't much in a taxi. The area at the bottom of Ayia Napa near the fun park is in a much nicer area with many shops and restaurants. The area of Christabelle has no pavements and feels very dirty and dingy. However it was 5 minutes from the strip.
Another thing is that there is minimal security features at this hotel, do not bring any bigger gadgets than a mobile phone, as a few of us brought iPad's and had no where to store them which is very unsafe in a hotel like this. Promoters knock on your doors and force their way in so be careful of your possessions.
This hotel is good for someone who doesn't care about where they stay and someone who is used to staying in not very nice places.
The price we paid in August was only £100 less than a holiday self-catering in Barbados therefore it is an absolute rip off and this is even excluding spending money. Definitely the biggest rip-off.
P.S this is coming from an 18 year old who is always up for a laugh so take it from me.
