a very traditional style, set of 6 three floor blocks arround the largish swimming pool, as opposed to the mighty modern hotels / casinos that have sprung up over recent years ( ie The Merit group of Hotels). Bookings are 90% british , and at out of season such as March, are predominantly over 55's , In the big hotels with casinos it is very multinational with a very large Russian ( a liking for the machines ).
The rooms differ a little, some more up to date than others, but quite cumfy, and mostly have pool or mountain views.
Staff are VERY friendly, speak good English, as do so many people here who are well used to Brits that have moved to this part of the island. Bit like Spain i suppose.
Plenty of bars and eating places, mostly run by Brits who find this the most appropriate employment opportunity.
Go up to Bellapaise monastry,
If you can manage the early start needed, go by car right up to the 'panhandle' furthest easterly point. Go along the coast road which has recently been considerably upgraded and far faster now.The desolate beach ( golden beach ) there is awesome and will be a lifelong reminder that you have walked along possibly the most wonderfull beach, certainly in Cyprus, mayby the world.. If you want to make that trip an adventure, stay there overnight, at the very basic, but facinating ,Livana beach hotel / huts on stilts, or you could play safer, but book ahead , in the more upmarket Blue Sea Hotel 03923722393
