“Average - Avoid all inclusive - Not in Protaras”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Where to start? We have just returned from at 10 day trip here. So, negatives first..

- Staff, most are miserable and quite rude, maybe they'd rather be elsewhere.. it seemed like it? The bar staff were much better so not a total loss in this department.

- Food, we would recommend that you don't choose an all inclusive option, we did and ate out most nights, the food is terrible at best. We aren't picky eaters and don't expect chips etc, we hoped for traditional Cypriot dishes such as souvalaki or moussaka.. this didn't happen.. most of the food I'd refuse to give to my labrador, boiled meat pieces or unknown fish with rice (labelled as risotto) and over boiled vegetables.

- Russians, this hotel is 95% occupied by Russians, whilst we have nothing against Russians, its an odd atmosphere at meal times, relaxing by the pool or evening entertainment.

- Don't expect clean towels everyday, or even every other day.. we had to go down and ask for them more than once. Also, bring your own beach towels.. there is a 12 euro charge to borrow one.

- Extra charges, 2 euro per day for safe, 12 euro beach towel, wifi charge (unsure cost, we didn't buy it.. go round the corner to a bar and use for free) ordering anything not on the inclusive menu is very expensive for poor quality.

- Gym, its a room with a treadmill, bike, two broken multi-use machines.. waste of time!!

- Not in Protaras!! Protaras is a 20 minute walk.. and in 35+ heat its not pleasant.. buses are frequent though, 1.50 euro before 11pm and 2.50 euro afterwards. Agia Napa is about 30 minutes on the bus.

Positives...

- Apartment is large and clean

- Spending time outside of the hotel and trying to enjoy the surrounding areas

- Breakfast meal is actually quite good

- Free air conditioning

Room Tip: Pick a different hotel, have a better look around

Now where do i start? NEGATIVES FIRST - To start with it should not be a 4* it should be a 2 or 3. the rooms are very big but clean and yes a bit dated but who cares about that you dont spend that much time in your room so dont know what some people are making such a big deal about them for but i must say the beds are rock hard so needed a holiday drink to get some sort of sleep. As for the food we were A/I but wish we had,nt bothered there was hardly any choice and seemed to repeat most days/nights, no kids meals but if you say the kids dont like any of the food and ask for chicken nuggets or fish fingers and chips they will do this for you. We travelled with a 10 and 12 year old and there was no entertainment for them at all apart from a pool table and few little games and the entertainer was rubbish but could,nt blame her as she done the kiddies disco ect on her own. We went down to windmills every night as at 7 they show an up to date film for the kids then later the girls loved the entertainment plus theres a game room with machines ect. Hotel advertises wifi but dont say its expensive. I went just outside hotel to any of the bars as they all had free entertainment. It was good in the fact the kids could have free ice cream most of the day until 9 at night. The pool was aways clean and the cleaners were always out first thing in the morning cleaning everywhere. Would def go again but would save money by going room only as we spent a lot of money eating and drinking out. Everywhere you travel is 1.5 euros but went to the water park and it took hr and a half to get there.. BIG TIP - next to the mexican opposite hotel is a trip booking place book in there as they have their own mini bus that takes you.. works out same price or little cheaper.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in April 2013 we got a reall good deal with Thomas cook at £180 each for the week self catering. Firstly the bad points... The rooms were really dated and the beds were not that comfy, the kettle did not work and when we bought the correct plug for it it blew up in out hand, so we were given a new one. The window to the veranda was very heavy to open and close nearly jammed my fingers a few times. The television channels were mostly in Greek/Cypriot apart from CNN. The staff seemed a bit miserable didnt want to talk or even say hello just staring at you as you walk by! Didnt eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food. The hotel is situated in Pernera which is about a five mins drive from protaras which we done as we hired a car, so that can be misleading.
The good points ....the rooms were spacious a separate bedroom and large sitting area with small kitchen, the shower and bathroom good and the rooms were clean, fresh towels everyday. The pool was nice and plenty of sun loungers . All in all it was a good holiday although it was deserted because of the time of year, most shops and bars were closed but it suited us as we just wanted a quiet break. The best thing about pernera was the resteraunt la cultura del gusto, it was amazing sometimes you have to book a table even in mid April as so popular, would recommend to anyone, great food and great service. Would I go back to Pernera and the elamaris...no but we are returning to protaras where we though we're were going last time.

Overall the hotel was ok - the biggest issue was the food and the birds in the outside restaurant. The food was very very limited with the same food EVERY lunch time over 7 days. The evenings do not cater for children with such a limited selection my kids had Mac Donald's at the table for 2 nights.
The outside restaurant was so poor due to birds pooing all over the tables and chairs - these we're not cleaned well enough - this must be a health and safety risk.
The hotel desperately needs updating with a lot of trip hazards around the pool that children could seriously hurt themselves on.
You do get what you pay for however this is not a 3 star Hotel is is just a 2 star.

I booked a Studio and didn't use the food or bar facilities, but everything was clean and perfectly acceptable for what I wanted. A bed for the night after a day diving, a pool to cool off in the afternoon.

There were a lot of Russians in the hotel but so what, they have just as much right to holiday as everyone else and certainly didn't affect me. The Brits were the loudest as usual.

A week in Elamris for around £100 can't ask for much more!

(I am using my wife's account to write this review-Gabriel) I have been with my family many times to the Elamaris and I never been disappointed. I don't understand the comment about Russians. My wife was born in England and my in-laws live in Cambridge and I visit England every year. I believe what you don't want on your holidays is English tourists returning back from the pubs totally drunk shouting and jumping in the swimming pool at 5 o clock in the morning. The Russians staying at the Elamaris were mostly women with children, a lot of single women with their mothers, it was so quiet and peaceful all the day. The rooms are clean, good food every day, all the amenities walking distance from the hotel and you can have from your room pool view and sea view. We have never had to use the air conditioners because it was so cool in the room.The only thing I recommend to the owners of this hotel is that with less than 50 euro per room, you can buy brand new taps and sinks and a new shower or any other problems like flushing with the toilets. Definitely the bathroom needs to be renovated. Next summer I will be back to Elamaris, half board. with my in-laws from England.
