Flew with Cyprus Airways (via tour operator), scheduled flights during the day, transfer airport-hotel 1 hour by minibus. Great hotel, but is not massively on through the different restaurants such as swimming pool, gardens and beach. Seaview. Eat well, bit varying from moderate to very delicious. Clear English influences. Lots of fruits, especially at breakfast. You could always eat outside on the terrace. Good and spacious beds, box spring. Room could have maintenance here and there. There was everywhere well cleaned. Fortunately, no animation in the evening outside, but regularly a wedding in the open air, what caused a lot of noise. Fortunately, no music on the beach. Regular groups, such as athletes and French soldiers, but gave no nuisance. Friendly staff, consisting of local people and Eastern bloc. Temperature: 36 first, later 33 degrees.
It is an excellent hotel, very large but old rooms and corridors not really more of this time, in the environment is to little experience but with the bus (2 euro pp DayPass) are you quick access to the 1.5 km away restaurants, paphos port 1/2 hours. fine beds nice and big. little entertainment for adults. Children’s entertainment mostly in Russian and not in English, so difficult for us Dutch. water sports available at the hotel very expensive, parasailing p.p. 90 euro, jetski 15 min. 40 euro. all incl advisable, loose drinks very expensive, soft 3.80. beer 4.00. though cumbersome all those receipts and emerging call room numbers in the high season you have to submit towel. but this is already in our last days was no longer needed. though long transfer from airport to hotel (almost 2 hours) because there are so many hotels along the route and coral beach far back is very many families with young children.
The hotel was built in the 1970s and that is clear to see. The rooms are fairly basic and equipped with old furniture and dusty floor coverings. The location of the hotel is a few KM outside a small town, in the immediate vicinity is little to do but it is also quiet. The service of the hotel is extremely bad, the staff (exceptions) shows little interest, not appointments come after and are clearly not motivated and trained to work in a 5 star resort. During our visit in May 2011 was the hotel overwhelmed by French soldiers (s.a.s.). They just came back from Afghanistan and could equip a few days on the resort before they went home. The resort this seemed a military base and that has the atmosphere be influenced tremendously. every 3 days in May were new soldiers scheduled for a period of 3 weeks. This is more common for so watch it!! The island of Cyprus is nice, and definitely worth
