When we arrived at Paphos airport and got on the coach, we were given room numbers and labels for suitcase's. After arriving at The Holiday village we had a speedy transfer to our rooms by a Golf buggy, the porter even brings the case's up to the room. Lovely deluxe room on first impressions, but it was late and very dark. Next morning we found door frames in bedroom and bathroom damanged and bathroom door would not even lock also plug socket in bedroom to plug a baby monitor in was not working, was told by reception this would be fixed but after staying there 2 weeks nothing was done.
Swimming pool by light house was taped off as tiles were coming away, first choice and owner of hotel could not agree who had to fix it and this had been like this since Feb! so not happy when you have little children who can't swim and can't use the shallow end. I must say that last few days of holiday this was being fixed but it was going on all day and to late at night with a kangol going all the time. Also there was Human Excrement in the pool that was reported but took them day to actually remove it but pool was not cleaned.
Another thing alot of the guest were complaining about was the owner of the Holiday Village had deceided to hold his Daughters wedding and reception there so they gave us a days notice that the main restuarant , light house bar, adult bar and areas surrounding this were closed to any guests as there were three and a half thousand people expected to turn up for this. Think this was not right as we had paid to use everything and to top it off they did the same thing the following week for a family friend. They did put a kind of BBQ on for us in the entertainment area but the food was rubbish.
The main resturant was lovely and food ok but after two weeks of the same thing it got boring. Also one morning there were Ant's in the Honey and plates provided in resturant were side plates not big enough for a adult dinner. The Mexican resturant is not worth the vist the fish is slimly and the food is in sml potions and not very warm, I wanted to try the greek but after the Mexican thought better of it. My Daughter had a burger in the Mexican and this was the size of a meat ball (see photo) with a big bun.
Entertainment was rubbish and the poor staff do try hard. Holly and Joff are great very good with the kids but for the money paid for this Holiday i think first choice need to employ proper entertainment staff (butlins entertainment is more professional). Kids wavelenth staff are great my kids had a lovely time, rope climbing in day and night, Archery, Wet and wild etc etc kept them really entertained.
All in all we had a nice holiday but would not class this as a 4star, the Holiday village in Algarve is so much nicer and a standard room there is far better than a deluxe here.
At bar you can only get 2 drinks person as well.
