“Will suit some more than others, small but beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Spent a week in the October holidays. Good holiday but different from other first choice all inclusives. Most differences are down to size, which is quite small at 50 rooms so it depends what you are looking for. Positives were that you got to know the staff who were all very helpful and friendly. Food is quite "british" eg a roast and hot pudding every day but extremely tasty and fresh. Not crowded round the pool and no problem getting tables in the restaurant.
Snack meals can be ordered at any time but are not sitting to help yourself. No beach towels provided so take your own!

KIDS - pool is good for playing and there is a separate toddler pool. Kids club very friendly but quite small compared to other complexes so all ages were mixed together and activities were mostly art/craft in one room. Although we went during Scottish October break there were very few school age children, more pre-school. Hotel seemed very good for young kids. I saw staff wiping high chairs after every use which you don't always see!

Possible drawbacks - might not be many kids of similar age to yours and there is not much space to play outside at night. The entertainment was provided by one guy. He worked really hard and did an excellent job, but large resorts have dedicated teams of 10+ so it depends what you want. We liked it.

TRIPS - the local beach is 2 minutes away and makes a nice change from the pool. For anyone wanting to avoid strap marks, topless was acceptable (we didn't see anyone braving it at the hotel pool). The water park was really good and no queues when we went. Frequent local busses are only €1 and don't charge kids. There is also a funfair about 15mins walk East with kids rides and soft play as well as thrill rides. A huge big wheel gives nice views and is pretty tame.

Overall we had a great time, hotel feels much more like an independent than the usual first choice holiday village style. The staff are the highlight.

Room Tip: Email and ask for a room facing the pool

We stayed at Tasia Maris Gardens from 24th Oct for one week and wish we could have stayed longer! The staff were all really friendly including the cleaning staff. They kept the apartments immaculate and even changed the shower curtains everyday! Food was amazing with so much choice in the breakfast and evening buffets - well done to the chefs who cooked delicious food everyday.

Pool is very cold though but the kids didn't seem to mind too much but they certainly couldn't stay in there too long. The evening entertainment area was very small and not much for the kids that we noticed but Danny was brilliant with the kids! Special mention to Thomas, Nigel, Kiril and Craig.

See you next year!

Room Tip: We asked for rooms facing the pool which are lovely.

We just arrived back from a week at the Tasia Maris Gardens and we really wished it was for an extra week! It was just fantastic... the food, the entertainment and especially the amazing staff who were so so friendly and brilliant with my 2 kids (ages 4 and 1), especially Nigel the waiter who my son adored and the very lovely and helpful receptionist Anita. We were pleasantly surprised by how much was nearby i.e shops and bars and Sandy Bay beach just minutes away. We also got the local bus a couple of times (1 euro each) to Protaras and the centre of Ayia Napa which were both worth a look. Only suggestion I would make is to maybe make the baby/young kids pool heated as at this time of year it was pretty cold!

We will definitely be booking again for next year. Thanks again all at Tasia Maris. Lesley, Jamie, Phoebe & Finley xxx p.s Danny the fab Entertainer..if you do end up in the UAE give us a shout on lesleyh@hotmail.co.uk xx

Room Tip: Downstairs if you have kids but not too near the pool if you have toddlers!!

We stayed here from 14/10/12 - 21/10/12. Apartments are fully equipped for self catering, although the hotel is now all inclusive and are spacious, well maintained and have everything you could want. One downside is that air conditioning is an extra in the main living area/2nd bedroom but as we were on our own this wasn't too much of a problem. (yes we did need aircon in October, Daytime temps were up to 35 that week and it didn't cool down much at night) The staff are all wonderful and do everything they can for you and if you want entertainment or Kids clubs I think you would be hard pressed to find better. The pool area is again very clean & well maintained and great for kids of all ages. Only 1.5m at deepest part so most adults can touch down at any point. Pool was several degrees cooler than the sea at the local "Sandy Bay" beach though, so we spent most days there. The beach is on a very safe "lagoon" with clear water and hardly any waves the only drawback being 7.5 euros a day for 2 sunbeds & an umberella but well worth it.
The food in the hotel is very good but if you want to try local dishes you will have to venture out as the restaurant caters for the english on a grand scale. Full english for breakfast every day and a roast every evening. Plenty of chicken nuggets, fish fingers and chips for the kids so it's probably great for families. We chose to eat out most nights. There are several good restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel or for just 1 euro, you can hop on a bus into the main town of Ayia Napa where there are many different choices of cuisine. The buses seem to be very busy between 7.30 & 8.30pm though, so avoid this time if you want a seat (advisable as the drivers do not seem to slow down for road humps). They run into the early hours of the morning but the fare increases to 2.5 euros after 11pm.
All in all a good holiday and if it wasn't for the lack of local dishes in the restaurant, I would rate it 5 stars.

13 in our group ages 18 months to 64, the apartments are really nice and well kept and spotless. The food was lovely, always hot and fresh, lunch was from a menu which had great choices and large portions. The entertainment was really good, Danny was fantastic, in fact all the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We have all said without a doubt we will go back. Well done everyone at the hotel.

We stayed for one week from 15-21st October 2012 we had a very warm welcome from Thomas on our arrival, who as we got to know during the week was a right hoot and we were throughly entertained on the Saturday night by himself and Danny.Rolling stones will never be the same.Food was really good and the restaurant manager Graig could have been alot easier on the waiting staff as he was at times abrut with them and they worked so hard all week and they deserved more credit for the work that they do.Always smiling and friendly staff big credit and assett to Tasis Maris Gardens.
I was unwell before our trip home and Anita receptionist was so kind to me as was Graig so a big thankyou to you guys for taking the time.
This hotel may be small but has a really big heart well worth a visit, children will be throughly entertained and lovely beach to visit 2 mins down the road.You can spend a few hours there and come back for lunch and go off again or relax by the pool.
Buses are brillant and cheap as chips so is affordable with a famiy to travel and have they air condition big bonus. We had looked at the Tasis Maris Hotel on line and thought we were going to this hotel.Was a mix up on both parties but what can we say our stay was not disappointing at the gardens as I said its small and not as glam as across the road but made up with warmth,friendliness,cleanliness,good quality food and exceptionally well presented and professional staff who gave you the VIP treatment any time of the day or night we will recommended this to families and couples.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side are quieter

I can't praise the place enough and the staff are brilliant. It's not luxury but the accommodation is good, clean and the food is really very good.

One downside, no local dishes on offer. Everything with chips!

One of the best Sunday roasts I've had though!!

Weather was great, 30 degrees in October!
