It was my first trip to Cyprus, and I was looking for a place somewhere in middle of inland as good starting base for daily trips with rented car. We (me and my wife) prefer peacuful places, therefore we have chosen this hotel, which is in long distance from Limassol city centre. The second reason was, that this is hotel for adults only, ideal for relaxing couples.
Hotel has fulfilled our expectations. Location is realy good, although differently from travel agency leaflets the beach is located not so near, by 5 minutes is always very fine. In October was beach perfect but I am sure that in full season it will be "overloaded", it is too small for such big resort. Bus stop is located a few meters from hotel entry, next plus point.
Restaurant very good, but not to say "wow" :) For me was a surprise that despite I am 55 and my wife 45, we were one of the youngest visitors. Maybe accidentally, maybe this hotel is oriented for such clients, as we have seen also on evening program, which was for us a liitle boring and monotonous.
Sleeping quality - I recommend to choose sea view rooms (unfortunately, I cannot order such room because of problem with reservation on www.lastminute.de). Our room was on the 1st floor oriented to north and we were probably to near to some source of monotous noise (I think tranformer outside), not to loud, but a little disturbing in the night.
But overall really very good place to stay - nice large pools, good equipped. Staff really sedulous and international, even though permanent to try speak with us Russian :) because of they were not able recognise our language :)) It was no problem to speak there English or German.
Thanks perfect roads is this centrally located place really good base for trips in all directions. But Cyprus is a little larger as I have expected. If I would plan this trip in the future, I would prefer to go to Pathos for a week and next time to go somewhere to east, as drive every day j2 x 100 kilometres... But this is my problem, when you wish rather stay on one place, is this resort perfect. No problem to visit Limassol with public transport, city is XXL with many possiblities for shopping and/or historical monuments.
