“Fantastic apartments for quiet couples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2009

My husband and I (both early 30's) have just returned from the Tasia Maris Garden Apartments and have to say that it was a really great place to stay in Cyprus. There are only 48 apartments which means this is perfect for the quiet holiday that we were looking for but was close enough to lots of bars and restaurants to have a choice of where to eat.

Accomodation - the apartments are very spacious and immaculately kept. We had maid service every day where our sheets and towels were changed daily. The kitchen has everything you would need for a self catering holiday although the oven was interesting to master without burning yourself! Super hot but not really any decent grill trays. The swimming pool was great and there was always sunbeds available. You can also use the Tasia Maris Hotel pool and facilities but we didn't bother as the pool we had was great. However this does mean that you can get room service to your apartment or great food at the bar. The previous comments about air-conditioning are still applicable and you do have to pay €6 a day for the unit in the kitchen/lounge but we didn't feel it was necessary as we were not sleeping in there. You do get used to the heat and leaving the balcony door open let enough air through. We had an apartment above the reception block which was disappointing at first and we were worried about the music from the bar but this was no problem at all.

Beaches - It is situated just a couple of minutes away from Sandy Bay which is a lovely little beach but the water was a little unclean towards the end of our holiday. We did walk along to Nissi Beach which took about 15 minutes but it was very busy and playing loud music. We did not go to Ayia Napa beach as we had heard that it would be worse than Nissi Beach. We hired a car and drove to Fig Tree Bay in Protaras which was one of the nicest beaches we have ever been too (last year we were in Egypt and the year before the Maldives) so I say this with experience of very good beaches. Fig Tree Bay has a natural break water which means it is a beautiful lagoon where the water is shallow and exceptionally clear. Unlike Egypt and the Maldives there it is not great for snorkelling but I think that's just because we have been spoiled before as the kids on the beach seemed to be loving it.

Eating out - there are many bars and restaurants to choose from along the strip from Nissi Beach to Ayia Napa but we had a recommendation of a traditional Cypriot Taverna just off the Square in Ayia Napa. This was the Limelight Tavern and was probably one of the best restaurants we have ever been too whilst on holiday. The portions were huge and they have a traditional grill, with lamb and pork being the favourites. You can order leg of lamb for 2 which would be enough for a family of 6 back home. It was huge! We didn't see anyone finish it but don't worry, they are used to this and provide doggy bags at the end of the night. On our last night we went back to the Limelight where they had traditional music and dancing and it was outstanding. The owner was belly dancing by the end of the evening and even the staff where taking photos of the entertainment! This place is a must and I'm sure will be around for years to come as the same family have been running it for 21 years.

Prices - the only downside to Europe at the moment is the weak pound which means that everything is quite expensive. Even an ice cream was £2 but if you bought it from the pool bar it was £3+! Top tip - go to the supermarket across the road for your ice creams - it is worth the extra 10 second walk to save a couple of quid! Also, if you want to fill the fridge in your apartment, either hire a car or get the bus to Parilimni (€1.50) to one of the big 3 supermarkets where you will find it much cheaper.

Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and Cyprus was beautiful. We hired a car and went up to the Troodos mountains which was about a 2 hour drive but was worth it. The top of Mount Olympus was a let down as it is protected by the military so we were unable to get to the very top. However, the short walk (2km) to the Kaledonia Falls (just outside Platres) more than made up for this.

It is unusual for my husband and I to say this as we like to travel to new places but we really would go back to Cyprus. It was beautiful, the people were lovely and they are clearly so proud of their country as it is generally spotless. If you have booked to go to these apartments then enjoy! We certainly did.

We came back 20th May and had the most amazing time both in Cyprus and at these apartments.. Apartments were lovely and clean (Fresh towels and sheets on a daily basis).. The pool was cold too start off with but by the end of the holiday the weather warmed up and so did the pool..

The apartments are abit far from Ayia Napa but can be reached within 20 minutes via walking or 5 minutes in a taxi but that was abit expensive!!

Beach was a 2 minute walk away & was lovely,clean and quiet most days!!
There are a large amount of places too eat in Ayia Napa and around Nissi would highly recommend Mai Thai which is in Ayia Napa and the bakery opposite the apartments..

Will be going back next year without a doubt :-)

We took our 10 month old here last week. Pool was excellent, weather was in the 80s and 90s and the service was great. Apartments are very clean (new towels and sheets daily) and reception and tour guides were very friendly and helpful.

Only downside is that it is between Nissi Beach and Ayia Napa rather than in nissi beach itself. However, it is a short and picturesque walk to the sea.

All in all highly recommended. Lots of shops, including bakery opposite.

Diving the Zenobia was also unmissable

We stayed at these apartments in the October holidays with our 2 children for a week. I really wish we had booked for 2 weeks though. We've never stayed here before, but will definitely be returning. The apartments are spacious enough for 4 and are kept spotless everyday by the fantastic cleaners. We had an upstairs apartment with a spacious balcony. The pool is cleaned everyday, in fact the whole resort is kept looking beautiful.
The reception staff were all very welcoming and helpful if you needed anything.
We only used the pool side bar once or twice, but the soft drinks seemed quite pricy really.
The snack bar menu was quite extensive and the food was lovely. Can highly recommend the toasted halloumi and local ham pitta breads - yum!!
Lots of shops round about the resort to buy food from if you want to eat in. Souvenir shops full of all the same stuff.
Local beach is nice but lots of seaweed. Well worth walking further to Nissi beach. Clear, warm water. Not too deep for the kids either. Think it was 7 euros for 2 sunloungers for the day which suited us fine.
Worth taking a trip to Protaras for the day and also to Paralimni if you want to shop in a supermarket!
The only thing that bugged me was having to pay for air con in the living room considering it's meant to be a 4*. Needed aircon when we were there, even though it was mid- October.
Husband ended up in Larnaca general with a stomach bug to be put on a drip. Staff were nice, but were very busy (same as UK then!) and i had to keep asking to be updated!
Please folks, remember your European health insurance card when travelling abroad. My husband needed an ambulance, treatment, an x-ray etc and we would've had to pay if it wasn't for this card. They just photocopied his card before he was discharged.
All in all, these apartments are fab!

  • Liked — The family friendly feel and the lovely staff
  • Disliked — the tired sounding karaoke cabaret from the hotel next door!

Have recently returned from my daughters wedding in Cyprus which was amazing.The family stayed in four of these apartments and we were all absolutely delighted with them. The cleanliness is impecable,(the first time I have EVER tipped the cleaners) the pool area and gardens are kept immaculate and the staff just couldn't be any better. It is the first holiday I have ever had where the staff shook your hand and waved you off on the coach! Considering this was a complex for families they pool area was never overcrowded or noisy - quite the contrary it was relaxed, quiet and a lovely place to spend the day. These are definitely the best apartments I have ever stayed in and we have all said that we would definitely return. Other members of the family who stayed in other hotels and apartments sorely regretted not staying with us. We also had people coming in off the street having a look around as the complex looked so nice and said they will book the Tasia Maris Apartments for their return holiday. Sort of says it all really. Will definitely return.

  • Liked — Spacious, Clean, Modern, Fully equipped, Value for Money, Lovely location to pool and resort.

Went here with my husband and were both so looking forward to it after reading good reviews. Our stay started off badly as had requested top floor with pool view. Instead got ground floor and one of the appartments stuck round the back!! Brochures give the impression all rooms are based round the pool and have nice views but not the case. Told the receptionist disappointed and could we have another room. But was informed fully booked and no chance of moving before 3 days. To be fair rooms are spacious and cleaned daily to a very high standard. Air con only in the bedroom and makes so much noise decicded better to roast in the heat at night!! Never slept in such a hard and uncomftable bed either. You had to stay in one position and back ached in the morning.
We are both in our 40s but like nightlife reasonably lively. Nearby are loads of bars with tribute acts on. Saw Robbie Williams, Tina Turner and bad Abba one (just two girls). These bars seem to cater more for the over 60s. Quite a few sports bars though which was good for watching football. Ayia Napa main square is mad. Loads of 18-30s groups falling round drunk. Done it myself years ago but you don't want it when out as a couple. Best to go early evening before 10pm to see the theme bars Bedrock, Titantic and Volcano.
Some of our favourite restaurants were Flames (5 mins walk away towards centre), Moo Moo's bottom end of Nissi Avenue and Pompei Pizza (loads of choice and huge tasty pizza's). Best bars are Carina next door for footy. Karystos over the road and Wild West. Happy hour at pool bar 4-5pm cheap, lovely cocktails.
Sandy Bay is nearest beach just 5 minute walk or use the walkway to go Nissi Beach bout 15 minute walk. One has quite a bit of seaweed and other bit rocky but shallow.
We hired a jeep through the Thomson rep and Europcar. Got three days hire for the price of two. Driving is dead easy in Cyprus as same side of road and signs partly in english. I'm not the best driver and would'nt normally do it on holiday but no problem here. Went Larnaca, Limassol, Troodos Mountains, Governor's Beach and Proteras.
Last time went to Limassol and much preferred that resort. But fancy Proteras and Fig Tree Bay next time. Only went for the day but looked really nice with loads of different bars, restaurants and nicer sandy beach.
These appartments probably better for families and elder couples.

Just returned from 2 weeks holiday at The Tasia Maris Gardens.Our party consisted of 6 adults,3children and an infant,we stayed in 3 apartments and had a brilliant time.
The apartments are in a very good position,near to lots of family friendly restaurants and lots of "nice" restaurants if you don't have children.Having 3 children and 1 infant with us we ate at The Wild West 3 times which has a big play area and The Orange Grove,both make children very welcome.The Yo Thai and The Pagoda are also good and welcome children but do not have a play area.
The apartments are spacious and spotlessly clean but I feel are in need of refurbishment and would not say they are Platinum standard.Only having aircon in the bedroom was not a problem for us in September but I would think you would need to pay for the extra aircon mid summer.
The pool area was kept imaculate,cleaned every morning thoroughly and we found there to be no shortage of sunbeds.
We only visited the beach once as we found it not suitable for our children at their ages.The nearby beach had a lot of seaweed so we walked about 10mins to Nissi Beach but was not very impressed with that either,don't know if it was the time of year but there was a lot of seaweed there as well.Don't be put off by my comments though,we are not really beach lovers so perhaps we're a bit picky!
The food at the Tasia Maris was good but spoilt by some of the staff working in the pool bar,Tassos found it very hard to smile as did one of the waitresses,but Nicos was brill,very friendly and lovely with the kids.The Hotel manager and reception staff were great,nothing was too much trouble.
All in all we had a FAB HOLIDAY!! and would definitely return to The Tasia Maris Gardens.
One word of warning,TAKE PLENTY OF MONEY!!! It's 2 years since we visited Cyprus,it was expensive then but much more so now with the Euro,

  • Liked — SMALL,FRIENDLY AND CLEAN
  • Disliked — SOME OF THE BAR STAFF COULD HAVE BEEN FRIENDLIER
