Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I would say this hotel is not 4 star. It was really dirty and to be honest the staff people were horrible. I greet the hostess who was the only one who wanted to help us. The young chick greeted us with a smile at every meal, even though she was briefly in Cyprus, helped us look for interesting attractions outside this tragic hotel. A lot of problems with the service that seemed to have a problem with helping us. Not working air conditioning in the rooms, a nasty manager and very unhelpful receptionists. Panthea Holiday willage is the worst thing we could live in Cyprus. I recommend paying extra for a good hotel.

We arrived at the Callisto Holiday Village (note the hotel has since changed its name to MarisMare Apartments) Ayia Napa on our arrival date, from that point on our holiday took a downward spiral due to extremely poor and dangerous conditions, which were a hazard to the Health and Safety of my family. Room: Overall comments • Poor upkeep of the rooms, lack of care and attention when decorating and cleaning. This is evidenced in the photos attached, where the paint is seen going over the tiled skirting, plug sockets, paint spatter on the pullout sofa bed and rust on the handles of the bathroom drawers • The rooms were tired and very dated • Ants were coming out of the plug sockets, crawling up and around the wall to behind the wall art • No hangers in the wardrobes • The room was infested with ants • The general fixtures and fittings, such as lighting, were also installed to a poor standard and care • When our room was cleaned (ground floor room 1602), the maids/cleaners left our room unsecured. Our patio doors were left unlocked, meaning they could be opened from the outside quite easily. This was a huge security and safety concern for me. If we hadn’t checked the doors then potentially, we would have been sleeping with them unlocked putting my family at risk of intruders or of our belongings being stolen. Kitchenette • No Kettle • There was only 1 teacup, 2 glasses and 3 bowls. Given that we were self-catering there was not enough crockery for me to cater for my family of 4 • I went to put the box of cereal away and it was then that I noticed that the cereal box was infested with ants. Can you imagine my disgust when I realised that my daughter was already halfway through a bowl of this cereal and therefore had consumed Ants! As a parent I felt horrid that we hadn’t checked this, never in my time in Cyprus have I not been able to keep a box of cereal in a cupboard and the fridge is not big enough to store such items • Ants around the base of the worktop grill/oven. This was never used by us and seemed to show quite a bit of rust and dirt Bed • We were concerned that our 12yr and 15yr children had to share a double bed, especially as they are of the opposite sex • The bed was absolutely disgusting, poor condition, lots of thick brown stains, it looks like stain had been painted on • The mattress toppers were poor, to the point they were literally just extra blankets • The bedframe for the sofa bed was also rusty, bent and broken • The sofa bed was also covered in paint spatters Bathroom • Looked grotty, dirty and the grout was all stained • The drawers had rust over the handles • Several times the toilet flushed but did not empty, it took several flushes to try and get this to work • When the toilet wouldn’t empty, it caused the kitchen sink not to drain, resulting in water bubbling through the kitchen sink plug hole. I went to reception on the Thursday to advise that we had no kettle, not enough cups/glasses and no hangers. They advised this would be added to a list, but they wouldn’t be provided until Friday morning when the maids did their rounds. By Friday PM these still hadn’t been provided, so my husband went to reception to chase this up. The receptionist rudely responded with ‘You should ask for these in the morning’, my husband explained that we asked for them on Thursday and still had not received them. Once again, they added it to a list. As a result, only the kettle was provided later that day however not the other items. Site • Signage to blocks very poor making it difficult to find your way around the vast site • Lighting on the footpaths was poor to non-existent in several areas. This meant when we came back to the hotel in the evening we couldn’t see where we were walking, couldn’t see if anyone else was around making us feel very unsafe • Towels thrown on the bushes around the site • Footpaths covered in running water due to pipes not pointing to the gardens correctly or pipes were broken • The toilets upstairs in the main foyer had holes in the floor, wall and also huge cracks in the walls Pool • Unless you woke up before 6.30am you had zero chance of getting a sunbed. • Sunbeds were all taken with guests reserving them with their towels but then not occupying them until gone 10am or later • Pool was absolutely disgusting! It had an excessive amount of black and green algae growing in it. These algae could be seen around the rocks in the pool, especially in the volleyball pool • Around the outside of the smaller pool where the it met the main pool, the rocks were also covered in algae • The rocks around the volleyball pool were broken, had holes in them showing the hollow centres and had sharp ages • The grates around the pool were filthy with black and green mould • Children’s pool slide had mould on the steps • Algae on all the grout at the bottom of the pool and around the edge of the pool • Black and green algae floating around in the pool • The pool ladies toilets were both closed, they had out of order signs on the doors however, no signs as to where the next nearest toilets were. This resulted in some guests were using the toilets anyway • The pool showers also didn’t fully work, they only dripped water. The only one that provided any use was the foot shower. This meant that you couldn’t clean yourself before and after using the pool. Internet Research supporting my concerns: ‘Is it safe to swim in a pool with algae? Whether mild or severe, it isn't recommended. Significant amounts of swimming pool algae welcome a breeding ground of harmful bacteria that feed on algae. These bacteria pose health risks to swimmers, most commonly resulting in a skin rash’ ‘Black algae: This type of algae grows on localized pool surfaces such a wall or in the deep end. If you find it around obstacles such as the pool’s stairs, corners, and steps, it’s likely due to poor circulation and poor sanitization’ We moved rooms due to the issues found New Room • The plug sockets were unsafe as the switches were not sitting in the sockets and couldn’t be switched off • Toilet roll holder stopped the toilet seat being opened and closed, we had to take the toilet roll off the holder to open and close the toilet and even then, it still caught • There was no kettle in this room, so ended up taking the kettle from our previous room • There were no hangers in the wardrobe • My son had a shower, despite the water being on a cold setting, a surge of hot water came through which scolded his back. • The shower tray didn’t drain quick enough whilst having a shower, which meant we had to keep turning the shower off to allow it to drain so to avoid flooding the bathroom. We have been coming to Cyprus, Ayia Napa for 20years. We have stopped in an array of hotels, but I can honestly say, we have never stopped in one as bad as this. This is the first time that I have ever wanted to leave a hotel and go home. Our holiday was ruined We are in a hotel which has been advertised as a Holiday Village, suitable for families however, the hotel was far from this. The hotel was full of party goers which woke us up at 3.30am, 4.40am and 6.30am. Drinking, swearing and being loud around the pool during the day. There was an altercation in the pool one day. Management came out and told the man to stop it, didn’t ask the man to leave the pool, or to stop drinking etc – that was it. Advised that the Kids club would be open during our stay however, it was noted that others guests were advised this will be closed for the duration of the season To summarise I feel that this hotel is inadequate, I am shocked that it is still showing on the holiday companies’ website for bookings. I normally take trip advisor reviews with a pinch of salt but in this case, I strongly recommend you read the reviews about this hotel. I also noticed that reading these reviews that it was ‘normal’ for people to be moved rooms several times, some up to 4 times, due to issues with the rooms at this hotel. Our holiday was ruined by the issues we had with this hotel resulting in us checking out and seeking alternate accommodation

The hotel does not deserve 4 stars, maybe 2. Its pluses: - beachfront location - helpful staff -large apartments - lots of sun loungers by the pool and on the grass There are so many disadvantages that I do not know if they can all be replaced: -food, horrible, especially breakfast. The quality of the products is tragic. Dinners are okay, but our stomachs always hurt - the hotel is old and run down and dirty - ants and cockroaches in the rooms - incomplete equipment, you still have to ask for something because it is missing (kettle, hair dryer, duvets, towels, coffee machine elements, etc.) -cleaning probably every 2 days, unfortunately not very effective (sand, feathers, lint on the balcony, ashtray not emptied) -WC between the sink and the shower cabin - rather for slim people, because someone who is overweight might not fit. -bar by the pool tasteless drinks, waiting for food for over an hour (you have to pay for it as there is no allinclusive). In general, some unpleasant surprises every day. After 3 days we changed the room because there was a broken generator on the roof and it was very loud at different times. One night, it turned on at 11:00 PM and turned off at 8:00 AM. The noise was like a helicopter landing on the roof. The air conditioning smelled bad, the fear was being turned on. I understand it's a cheap hotel, but cheap doesn't have to be awful. I do not recommend

The room was full of little ants, they were everywhere, even in the beds and on the walls. The ants were there allready when we arrived. Also a giant cockroach in the apartment, we had to kill it ourselves, because the lady Who came to spray the bugs was also scared of the roach. The room was very worn out, there were no cleaning supplies. The pool was good and staff was kind. Location of the hotel was very nice.

I came here with my brother and his friend and was shocked at how different this was to Leonardo beach hotel on Phphos. There are no activities during the the day poolside. My room: Was spacious clean although I would say it was abit outdated. The bedframes were stained, AC was very old and worn and there was a really loud humming sound which came from the magnetic lock I had to either turn the power box in the room at night off, or remove the magnetic lock, which meant charging my phone overnight was a pain, luckily I had a power pack. Facilities: Solid but definitely needs updating in some places. The basement pool area just looks a bit dated the lift move extremely slow and has a hole in the call above. The sunbeds look very dated and the umbrellas are old and have tears im them and need repair. Food: There is just enough choice to where you don't get bored, they tend to have the same options but rotate them on different days and have slightly different versions. Lumch and dinner were tasty and had no issues. Breakfast however I personally got sick of, it was literally the same thing everyday and the sausages were not even actual sausages but those overly processed mini frankfurter ones and there was a real lack of salad in the morning, I ended up eating out one morning. Location: The location is perfect, there is a small beach just out front with cousihioned sunbeds The beach is a bit rocky but nothing too excessive and you can walk along it and does its job. It sits right on the beach front in-between nissi beach and the town but is a little bit closer to the town which is great. You can walk straight along the path to go to either location and you will walk along the beautiful sea the whole time. Staff: The staff were pretty good, the reception were generally helpful and polite and had a decent.t understanding of English. The room service was also good. I requested thicker quilts. They later seen that I like to sleep with 2 thicker quilts and would started giving me these both wrapped in bed sheets.

I was afraid of coming here after reading the bad reviews but I was pleasantly surprised! Sure, the hotel needs some work - rooms are a little old and could be cleaner and pool toilets really need a lot more cleaning... But apart from that we were satisfied and really enjoyed our stay. Location of the hotel is great, the pool itself is clean and big enough for everybody, there were always some sunbeds available, food was pretty good as well, staff was friendly, pool bar was awesome with good drinks and snacks, wifi worked really well and the AC always kept the room cool at night. So if you're not looking for luxury I think this hotel will suit your needs :)

Well what can I say all the bad reviews made me so nervous about going but as I said to my mum before we went everyone likes to moan about something! And I am so glad I didn’t listen to all the bad reviews! The location is amazing right next two two beaches and a 5 minute walk to nissi beach and only 3 euro bus ride to ayia napa for two! The hotel itself is a tad dated but for a three plus what do you expect if I was a hotel inspector looking to give it 5 stars yes there are bits here and there that need improving but it is an older hotel compared to the brand new ones built close buy! I would 100 per cent stay here again room 2702 was right by the pool spacious two tvs in the apartment nice kitchenette and living area beds were comfy so I can’t complain one bit staff were friendly aswell! I think when it is at full capacity in the summer it may be noisy but again think before you go! I came to Cyprus at the start of the year and stayed at the Nissiana and much preferred this hotel! Can’t wait to come back next year

Myself and my friend have just came back from an amazing week stay at this resort. After reading the bad reviews before we went we where worried about what to expect. We arrived late evening and had a warm wwelcome they had also made us sandwiches and kept the bar open. We found the hotel very clean people had previously said that the hotel was noisy this wasn't the case. They had a good selection of food and alcohol that you can enjoy on the resorts beach. The resort is only 5 minutes bus ride from nissi beach and the strip. You can get the bus outside the pharmacy for €5 for a day ticket and the bus runs until 4am. I would definitely recommend for couple but there wasn't much entertainment for the kids .
