I have stayed at this resort at least four times. Every time we come to Cyprus we stay at this resort. It just has it all. Cozy apartments, lots of pools, great beach, great restaurant, and it's only 2 km from Agia Napa City - which is, like, nothing at all if you have two working legs. Also, there is often entertainment at night, including singing / dancing. Scandinavians might also be interested in the fact that some of the staff speaks Norwegian / Swedish / Danish.

4 star complex, could be 2.. the rooms felt verry old - even more bad than avarage, the doors in the room was broken. Not at all a 4 star room! But i hope they have fixed that.. it was some years ago. We did not like the atmosphere here. First time we where in cyprus we lived at Panthea garden, it was everything we ever wished fore. We thought this hotel would be kind of the same, but not at all.. of every 4 star hotel we have lived in, this one was the "worst". But, it's ok if they just give it a 3 star, then you don't have to expect so much and it's ok if the rooms are broken and old. The garden and everything was verry nice. But, as i said.. not the atmosphere. It's a OK place to stay.

I wonder such a big populair resort does not have more reviews. We surely missed it when we wanted to review this hotel.

We stayed there late August 2008 and enjoyed very much. Hotel is scandinavian and most staff there are Scandinavian with a majority of swedish.

We looked for a resort with a big variety of pools and we found it. We did however find the pools crowded some of the time. Pools are very children friendly.

There are two restaurants and the menu card can be found on their website including prices. We did however after a few days got tired of the lack of choices.

There is a lot of entertainment for children and adults during day and evening. However staying there more than one week - then you have seen it all and most of entertainment is done in Swedish.

If you book a tour directly with the resort (eg. boat trip) be prepared to walk as there is no transfer included. A walk to the harbour takes 30min and a lot of sweet.

The beach close to resort - Sandy Bay is ok, but we preferred Nissi Beach which is a 10min walk away to be much nicer and more child friendly - however it is a party beach and gets crowded.

Next time we will look at Adams beach which has more nice pools and is just next to the beach.

The hotel is in fact a widespread complex of 2-floor row-houses with appartments of 1 or 2 rooms (we have stayed in a so-called 'Royal' appartment, which is a double-room appartment (dining room with small kitchen corner plus bedroom) probably slightly bigger than the normal two-room appartments. I believe none of the aapartments has direct sea view, but the beach is walking distance (few hundred of meters) from the appartments. The swimming pools area is very nice, at least in April when it was not crowded. There is an almost-free minigolf inside the hotel area and an open-air chess table with large pieces and many walking alleys, very child and baby-friendly.
Also for kids, there is a Play&Chat area, where children may spend some time (many activities are for free) when sun is too hot for example.
The staff has been very friendly and answered very promptly to all our requests.
To summarize, I believe it's a wonderful place for families with children (especially children aged 3-7, for which most activities are targeting at), especially at the beginning of season (April/May), when the weather is not too hot yet and the water shortages are not visible to the tourists.
