It was another time we spent May vacations in the resort. We persuaded our friends (2 families) to join us. We booked executive wing room which had a beautiful terrace. The minor issue was Russian speaking Neighbors who loved to explore who is aside. The tiger won't change it's spots... Though I would say that the view seemed to be better from the main building balconies. Food and service was perfect as always. Water sports gave a wonderful break to all of us. Gym was almost empty all the time so one would not have to share it. Sailor's Rest is unbelievable place. We loved it very much and celebrated two birthdays there.
We liked jewelry shop where one can always find a birthday gift. Ask for a good bargain always :-)
The Limassol old city and the port undergoes reconstruction, we hope that it will be finished.
What we definitely didn't like: an animation team which substituted English speaking team in early May: morning gymnastics turned into something very strange and frustrating, evening disco animators seemed not to care if children like the performance at all (the latest did not). The animators should accept that they are a part of very important service function and listen carefully for the polite feed back instead of giving reasons. It was frustrating. Another issue were construction works. Early buzz, 8 am, each morning. We are not early birds that much ;-)
Notwithstanding the above we plan to return to the hotel next year. See you there :-)
