I arrived at the Moniatis Hotel on Sunday 24th June 2012, first impressions were good, the hotel was clean, in fact spotless! Check-in was quick and efficient and I was soon unpacking in a very well appointed room, air conditioned plenty of storage space, clean linen and towels.
It was apparent within a few minutes of arriving. That the staff were friendly, helpful and did their utmost to make all their guests feel welcome, in fact the hotel could be said to be "home from home". A quick trip to the bar found it well stocked with a great range of spirits and both the local brew KEO, and Carlsberg lager on tap, or available ice cold in large bottles! You can also by soft drinks and bottles of water.
Outside the bar is a lovely swimming pool, and plastic glasses are provided if you want to take your drinks outside and sunbathe and swim. There are plenty of sun loungers available and a covered dining area completes this excellent facility.
Breakfast is a buffet, and you can chose from a good continental selection, or, full English breakfast, with ice cold orange juice and tea and coffee available.
There is a pool bar menu with snacks and more substantial meals available at reasonable prices. There is also a restaurant menu which has some delicious local specialties as well as things like Lamb or Pork chops etc.
The food service left something to be desired, as on one day both the breakfast buffet and the dinner dishes were cold! On the following day there was no food as the chef decided to leave early in the evening – take away please.
A five minute walk will take you up into the village, where you will find a pharmacy, supermarkets, take away food outlets, nice bars and of course a bank. If you want to go further afield there is a bus stop, where you can catch the bus to Limassol and beyond, or if you prefer, ask at reception and they will call you a taxi. Price to Limassol is around 10 Euros each way.
If you want to see more of this beautiful island and its people, hire a car and get out and about to discover beautiful beaches, quaint villages and local cuisine, along with some stunning historical sites.
The Moniatis Hotel, well worth a visit, the best indication of how good this hotel is, comes from the number of Cypriots who chose to come here for the weekend. You can't get a better recommendation than that!
Olympic Representatives are on call and have a great range of excursions at really reasonable prices.
I am definitely returning to this hotel in October 2012.
