We spent 10 days with my husband at the hotel by the end of September 2012. It's true it needs refurbish, especially the bathroom and it can be cleaned better but we found it good. We were on budget, we ate few times at the hotel and it was correct, sometimes tasty. We didn't have breakfast, we catered for ourselves most of the times. We had the linens and towels changed frequently and the room superficially cleaned but it was fine with us as we couldn't but bring some sand from the beach in our shoes how ever we tried not to. The beds were comfy. We had extra pillows with no cover and we simply asked Nicos who gave us what we needed immediately. The staff were very nice. The pool was clean when there was clean people around, not leaving smokes, etc everywhere. Anyway, the gardener cleaned every day at 7h in the morning around the pool and he missed some places sometimes. With all kinds of people coming to Debbie Xenia, it's a miracle the furniture is still in this shape. I understand why Nicos wouldn't put new kitchen tools. We saw people trashing, spitting, eating and drinking in the pool while it was forbidden.
We went to Lidl (by the bus to protaras - ask the driver to point out the best place to reach it) to buy our food because it was much cheaper than the supermarkets around and more fresh.
We will definitely go back to this hotel because we were not looking for a luxury stay. We simply wanted to feel at ease and not worried about spotting or damaging something. We could hang our towels and wet clothes everywhere on the chairs and on the balcony without worries. And a nice beach was just nearby. It was a wonderful relaxing holiday and we enjoyed every moment of it. We went to the airport in a bus-taxi arranged by Nicos for around 12 Euros per person. It was rather quick. Oh and we came to Debbie Xenia by bus, it cost us 4 Euros (together instead of 55 Euros by taxi) from the airport till the hotel. We had prepared our maps and researched everything and got the bus times at the information desk at the airport. The bus had AC and a place for luggage and it was comfortable. If you are on budget look for "Cyprus by bus' on the internet, it might be very helpful, they give you also all the details at the information desk at the airport but it's better to be prepared.
Hope you have a nice stay like we did!
