Spent two weeks in the excellent hotel from June 30th till 13th July on a half board basis. As soon as we reached the hotel we were welcomed by the front desk staff who presented us with a cold cloth to freshen up with and a nice glass of cold bubbly, a very nice touch. Our check in was quick and effective. Our cases were delivered to our room by the porter. We stayed in room 301 which was a double with sea view. The room was very bright and clean.
All the staff in this hotel are trained to a very high standard as everyone greets you with a smile and a warm hello.
The food in this hotel is of a very high standard and you are truly spoilt for choice every breakfast and evening meal.
The hotel pools are excellent and are always clean as is the surrounding area, the planting around the main hotel is to a very good standard, and if you are felling energetic there is a well stocked gym.
This is one of the few hotels that we have stayed in the all the first line management team were always out and about the hotel and always stopped and had a word with you and also asked if you had any concerns, once again good PR.
As with every hotel there is the parts that are not so good and I would put the hotel evening entertainment into this bracket, The afternoon entertainment is is organised by the bundle of energy that is known as Caz, she is always on hand to get everything going from table tennis to water polo she even stands in for the evening entertainment.
The evening entertainment definitely needs to be looked at and I would suggest sooner rather than later. A couple of negative points for this hotel is the location. there is a bus stop opposite the hotel that will take you to Limassol town for €1.50 single and it takes about 45 mins the plus side of this journey is that it leaves right outside the largest Mall in Cyprus called quite imaginatively "My Mall" and it has a vast range of stores with something to please everyone. The other negative point is the WIFI is not available in your room and you only get a signal first thing in the morning down at the pool side or at reception. Please get your IT manager to get this sorted.
A good yardstick of any hotel/holiday is the big question "Would you return" and my answer to that is Yes, but only for a week in say October and that is only because of the location.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Front Office staff for the lovely touch of a bottle of Champagne and a bowl of fruit placed in our room on the day of our 29th Wedding anniversary and it greatly appreciated.
