Some background first. My wife and I will not see 60 again, but we are young at heart. We are also well travelled and have stayed in some top quality hotels.
Firstly the hotel inside . It is simply fantastic. Top quality everything. We stayed in a studio apartment (slighly larger than a standard room with a sofa and sea view balcony ). Lovely room with high insulation from noise inside and outside the room. Only criticism is that there is no hair conditioner withe suppied toileteries which is odd for a 5 star hotel. The restaurants are elegant and ladies can where their best clothes and jewellery. The indoor pool ,sauna and steam facilities (free) are good and the gym has state of the art equipment. We did not use the spa.
At the back of the hotel is a huge pool with a separate, nice kids area with a slide. The separate adults only pool is a delight, with a book exchange facility (good idea). The attached Colors cafe has ice cream to die for and is very popular in the evenings as well.
Their is a lower grass terrace below the main pool with sun beds. Very quiet with its own bar. Then below that there is the private beach and watersports club. We cannot imagine that there would ever be too many people for the sun beds, as there are just so many.
Now to the not so good bits. If you walk out of the front of the hotel you are into a world of tacky mediocrity. Johny's pub is opposite the hotel and the Wembley pub with outdoor pool tables is about 100 metres to the left past Pizza Hut. Having said that , if you continue walking left you will come to some acceptable restaurants where we ate. Limassol is a modest port city with little to say about it.
And then there are the Russians. If we set to one side the Pepsi Russian offsite at the hotel (200 reps), then the hotel still had a high proportion of Russians. This should not be a problem, but they (like the Americans) are just so loud, wanting all to hear them.
Buuuuuuuuuut, if you do not mind a hotel holiday and can afford the high prices (3.75 euros for a small plastic cup of coca cola) then this is the place to go. We will certainly go again.
