Last year, this hotel was perfect, went twice and we couldnt wait to return. The hotel has since been refurbished and our sea view room was excellent, food still superb (although very poor service and luke warm main meal in the Al La carte restaurant).
However, from April this year, the hotel has gone from a Gold Hotel to a Couples hotel and all this appears to mean is very poor entertainment, very young, inexperianced entertainment reps, terrible in house resident band, often forgot words in the middle of singing - there was absolutely no atmosphere or rapport with the audience (they were pleased one night when there were 5 peple dancing!) Last year, you couldnt get on the dance floor! We met with many people who had been before - as well as those who hadnt and ALL, without exception, said how bad and amateurish the entertainment and band were. This hotel is in a terrible location and the standard and professionalism of the reps and acts are so important.
Also, regardless of being either a Gold or Couples hotel - people who have booked here do so to avoid families and children. However, the hotel seem to have a policy to allow the local Cypriot families to use the hotels garden and beach area. It is bearable during the week, just, but at the weekends, overun with children and babies. This is not acceptable and the hotel are certainly going to lose customers due to this. This also affected using the toilets as only two ladies in the Garden area and was overun again due to families and Baby changing.
We would have continued to return twice a year without fail if it was upto last years standards -Go back to the Gold standard of last year, get back Matt and Nicola and stop turning the Garden area into a family area. We would love to return but not if it remains the same as this year.
