SENTIDO Kouzalis Beach do you have to.....

seen some reviews on trip advisor and we love the look of SENTIDO Kouzalis Beach hotel, but seen one review of apparently men have to wear trousers to have a meal? is this true, we're in our early 20's and my boyfriend will not wear trousers on holiday especially not in the heat, find this kind of pointless as people in shorts is not offending what so ever. However it will annoy us if true as it also annoyed the couple who wrote the review.

Any help would be appreciated, also on any good restaurants near by? Italian is our fave! any good trips to do? we will be there hopfully 2nd july for 10nights

I think you will find a lot of AI hotels expect men to wear trousers at night in the restaurant,which I also find stupid as I would never even take a pair with me to Cyprus.

Also the Kouzalis is fairly isolated,check out google maps so you will probably not find much around there.

If you want somewhere a bit livelier try Silver Sands/Rising Star/Capo Bay or Tsokkos Beach which are all fairly central in Protaras

The Kouzalis Beach is actually not in Protaras but on the coastal road out of Pernera heading toward Kapparis. It is fairly isolated but there is a bus stop outside and it's only a 10 minute journey to Protaras if you want something more lively in the evening. There is a very good Italian restaurant in Pernera called La Cultura Del Gusto and plenty of Italians in Protaras.

I think you will find, as the previous post says, in All Inclusive hotels men are generally expected to wear smart trousers for an evening meal. One pair of perhaps smart linen ones would be sufficient. I do agree in a hot climate it seems a bit silly but hotels do want to keep some form of dress code

I have to admit I have some respect for this policy. It's a little ironic as it was probably Britain that introduced formal dress at dinner, but a bit of decorum is a pleasant distraction these days. Just think of it as a bit of a laugh and go with the flow - insist on total chivalry from him - pulling your chair out for you and all that! The room will almost certainly be air conditioned.

We have been to the Kouzalis beach twice now and can highly reccomend it. My boyfriend has worn knee length shorts in the restauraunt on a night and it was absolutely fine, so I dont think you'll have a problem. Hope you enjoy it!

If you check the reviews of the hotel, the manager has responded to one on 26/10/11 stating that next year he is going to enforce the dress code. It is best to be aware as I have seen men turned away from restaurants in the past and been embarassed.

Yes from this year dress code will be strictly enforced.

Just wear trousers to dinner and then change straight after.

Restaurant is air conditioned.

We have been to many AI and my husband found it strange request. But he sometimes changes after dinner or as he feels, us women make an effort to get dressed so why should the men not make an effort to. One or 2 pairs or linen trousers is all you need.

hi yes agree next year is deffo long pants. on each of our visits last year we seen giorgios the resteraunt manager , who is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet, being swore at and screamed at because of peoples ignorance at wearing shorts at dinner, the hotel booklet tells you the brochures tell you. so comply its as simple as that. if not happy with that go elsewere cheers, by the way mega embarrased by the antics of some guests over the issue
