I went to Ayia Napa with five friends this summer, and had an amazing time! The hotel was much better than expected. After having read some of the reviews on here we were a bit worried about how scummy the hotel/area was going to be, but it turned out fine! We arrived at about 11pm and were checked in relatively quickly by Lazaros - the night reception guy who became a good friend to us (cutie!). We had to pay for air con (as you do in all hotels there), and as we had two 2-room rooms, there were two air con units in each. To have all of these running would have been waay too expensive, so we just paid for the ones in the bedrooms (as opposed to both bedroom and living room, where there was a sofa bed) and then let the coolness flow about. Air con worked well but only minus was you had to have the key in the wall for it to work - so when we went out the room (and took the key with us) the air con turned off and the room got hot for when we returned. The room itself was clean, basic but no marks, dirt or bugs were found anywhere!
The location of the hotel was excellent - about a 5 minute walk to the strip and with a few nice restaurants within 2-3mins (including a reggae bar right opposite the hotel - amazing chicken but avoid the pasta!) Also down the end of this strip that our hotel was on there seemed to be better deals - typical was two drinks, a shot and entrance to one of the clubs that opened later (castle, carwash, black n white, starskys, and then after parties river reggae and aqua) for €4-5. Down the other end, where many of our friends were staying it seemed to be you could get more watered down drinks but no free passes to anywhere (which did have time limits, but if used right can save you a good €10 or so).
The pool was nice, possibly a bit small and sometimes you ran out of beds but we were there peak time. There was a gym as well - although I dont think it got much use. And the poolside bar place was great, so many chips.
I recommend this! Having a nice hotel to come back to after a crazy night and being able to cool down and sleep was priceless. We had some friends who were staying in Anthea and their air con didnt work for the first few days - ouch!
No problems and a fantastic holiday!!! Would definitely go back to this hotel and Ayia Napa!!
