“Too Noisy, Too Busy”
Reviewed 1 October 2008

Bearing in mind this is a 5 star hotel it seemed to attract far too many noisy children, so if you are looking for peace and quiet don't choose this hotel. Also it seemed to be the preferred choice of holidaymakers from the north of England who couldn't help but be loud about everything they did. The hotel itself is very clean and not at all shabby but appears to be the wedding mecca of all and sundry. Didn't rate the breakfasts, not a great deal of choice each day and lots of badly behaved children wasting food. Plenty of sun beds round the pool and beach area so there was always a choice to be had. Go to this area definitely if you want bad karaoke each night and expensive drinks. Rooms were very clean but the beds were quite uncomfortable, didn't find many 5 star comforts, mini-bar/fridge was locked unless you wanted to pay for it as was the safe. All in all if you come from the North of England you will feel quite at home in this hotel.

Must I say that we where a little worried after reading the reviews on this hotel especially as we booked our wedding here.

Wedding
We had 50 guest so we decided to have the service in the gardens which where really nice,then a champainge reception followed by the beach BBQ - the food was amazing and looked really nice! i would defo recommend this!!.we then had the dj which cost 350 euro which is really cheap as he did card tricks and entertained all the children.The wedding co-ordinator Katrina is really good and they have alot to offer.

This hotel is really nice, not quite a 5* as the rooms are a little dated, but the rooms are always cleaned everyday and they give you fresh towels.

The drinks here are quite expensive it cost 5 euros for a coke, but they have a supermarker in the hotel which is much cheaper.

I would recommend this hotel for a wedding and for general travel and would more than likley return.

Anyone that is planning on getting married here, feel free to email me if you need any details and prices for the wedding.

We stayed at the Adams beach hotel from 24th August till 8th September.This was our first holiday away together so wanted to splash out on a nice hotel.The hotel was just as we expected, smart, clean and sophisticated, and catered for everyone!!The hotel and rooms were always very clean and the gardens well managed!!
The only downfalls was the flooring in the main pool, some of it had come away and was extremly sharp, with many people complaining they had cut their feet!Also the maids in the morning!Being a young couple we had a few nights out in Ayia Napa so therefore on our return we put up the 'Do not disturb' sign on our door!!However, on many occasions the cleaners would ignore this and make their way into our room to start cleaning the bathroom and on one occasion decided she needed to change the bed there and then even though we were still lying in it!!!!
Other than the maids, the reception staff were extremley helpfull and friendly as were the bar and restaurant staff!
The food was fantastic with so much to chose from and something there for everyone!!
Before going away i had read some reviews which stated that the hotel was very expensive.In fact we found the prices for drinks were the same as the bars, sometimes cheaper!
The childrens and adults entertainment during the day was excellent, but we were dissapointed with the evening entertainment apart from the magic show on a saturday night which is well worth watching!!!
The weather was brilliant, with some days reaching 39c, so all in all we did have a brilliant holiday and a well deserved break.

We came to the Adams Beach Hotel looking for a luxury holiday, to satisfy the needs and demands of a young family. Me, my husband and our 2 children (1 & 4 years old) traveled to Adams 2nd week in September 2008. The weather was perfect (34 deg average). Arrived at a very impressive reception, was greeted by welcoming staff who immediately told us we had been upgraded from a kids suite, to a Queen suite. Very happy to see that our massive suite had 2 bathrooms (one bath in master and shower in kids room). The suite was the best location for us, near the pools, beach and restaurant. No trapsing through the hotel with swim wear and inflatables for us! The Queen suites are all situated outside of the main building but at the heart of all the action.

We stayed half board, breakfast and dinner was plentiful, and lots of variety. Breakfast 7-10 Dinner 7-late. We were impressed by the quality of the food, and felt no need to venture outside to the many taverns. We didnt bother with lunch as we found stuffing ourselves at Breakfast usually lasted till dinner time!!

Our bill for drinks, snacks, icecreams, a couple of lunches and the 'odd' cocktail came to a whopping 430 Euros for a weeks stay, but we didnt mind as we would have probably spent more than that if we hadnt of gone half board.

There were only a few minor issues; the beach had alot of fag butts strewn in it, and the swinning pool floor was in need of repair in places, both of which did not stop us going in the pool or on the beach.

The sea is fab, i was in everyday. They have steps into the sea at the end of a path, where the clearest bluest sea is.

The entertainment is hillarious (have a few drinks before you go) The animation team do their best with what little resorces they have. My kids loved the mini disco. The magic show is well worth a look. We dont do kids clubs, but we had a look at where it is situated and to be honest its a little room, at the back of the spa. Reminded me of a dungeon actually!

We had a fun relaxing time, my kids adored the pools, and whilst my 1 year old slept in her cot for afternoon naps I sunbathed on the balcony by the door. Perfect.

All in all, we will be returning very soon!

  • Liked — The space for the kids to run around and play inside our queen suite was great. The beds were really comfortable. The air conditioning works a treat!

I have now been at this hotel on 5 occassions, and i would like to say the hotel has just recently been refurbished to the highest standard.

If you are looking for a superb hotel outside ayia napa this is the hotel for you, you will find this hotel is superb for many things i.e Pool, Food and entertainment day and night, the only issue was the price of drink in the hotel, but the hotel makes up for this issue.

All i can say i'll be back next year love it.

When we first booked the Adams Beach Hotel in 2005, it was consistently rated in the top five hotels on this site from reviews. Since then, & after we booked late last year to come back in August, I've watched in dismay as its rating (according to reviewers) has fallen.

So we were pleasantly suprised to say that the actual hotel is much improved from our last visit. I can only think that other hotels in the area have upped their game or that other, external factors (some of which I'll mention here) have affected its rating.

Back to the beginning... My husband & I, & our two children (aged 11 & 8) stayed here for a week. We booked two interconnecting standard rooms with side-sea view & was a little nervous about what they'd be like, considering they are the lowest standard of room available. Well, we needn't have worried. Although small-ish, they have recently been completely refurbished & to a high standard, too. The carpet was brand new, the bedding & other furnishing also new & the furniture also smart & functional, although not exactly pretty! 3 years ago we had a family suite which was very tired around the edges & scruffy. It was also a squeeze for four of us & left us with little privacy. This year, the interconnecting room arrangement meant we had two bathrooms between us, two wardrobes & two televisions (not that we used these). The view was better than expected as well, looking inwards (the shape of the hotel is a "U") down to the gardens, pool & sea. It was not the straight on view that full sea view would have provided but it was much better than the road view that others seem to have ended up with.

Also changed was the poolside towel service. This excellent service negates the need to take your own towels to Cyprus (saving valuable weight) as you take your card to the attendant by the pool bar & pick up your towels. Any not returned by the end of the holiday is subject to a payment of 17 Euros. It ensured clean, dry towels every day.

Another change for the better was the breakfast. 3 years ago it was held indoors in a stuffy, canteen-like room & was mobbed by people trying to get to the buffet. Now it is held outdoors, just past the garden area, above the pool & is open from 7.30am to 10am. The quality of the food is pretty good with a huge variety of cereals, breads, spreads, cakes/pastries, ham, cheeses, olives, an egg bar where you can request a fresh omelette, & all manner of cooked breakfast items. The only tip is to make sure you're not there between 9 & 10am as this is when the majority of guests come down, it becomes crowded, noisy, hot & a bit scrappy at the buffet tables. We always tried to get there between 7.30 & 8.30 & it was always peaceful, calm & with plenty of choice. Getting there early also had the added benefit of being able to go & place your towels on your choice of sunbed around the pool, have your breakfast, go back up to the room to put on sun tan lotion & still be back down & sitting around the pool whilst most people were still fighting for their breakfast.

A word about sunbeds... there were plenty available. However, if you have a particular preference of where you want to sit then you'll have to join the dawn parade of people getting up to reserve their favourites with towels. Alternatively, if you don't care where you are as long as it's either on the private beach or the grassy area, there are always sunbeds available for late risers or for those who hate the whole towel reservation thing!

The pool itself is still the main reason why we returned. A collection of pools with interconnecting "rivers", a lazy river, fountains, bubble pools, two waterslides (that were open quite a lot this year) & a proper swimming pool

We never ate in the hotel (on B&B basis) & preferred to have a cocktail in the Piano bar early evening before going out to eat.

Now the niggles...

Nissi Beach, next door to the hotel, has become rather scruffy since we went 3 years ago & even more so since my first visit in 1989 (didn't stay at the Adams then). There is lots of litter around & the sea contains old carrier bags & other bits & pieces. There was also a lot of green algae at the water's edge which spoilt the clarity of the water somewhat. Some reviewers have mentioned the type of people who come to Nissi Beach but we didn't mind this at all. It was nice to hear the clubby music during the afternoon & to feel that we were somewhere really buzzy. It took my husband & I back to our teenage years when clubbing all night & sleeping it off on the beach was the height of holiday requirements. We loved watching all the beautiful young things parading themselves at the water's edge! Also, the noise abated by 7pm so we never felt it was unreasonable.

The hotel's private beach was adequate but suffered the same problem as the public Nissi Beach. The water wasn't that clean because of the litter floating around.

The main problem for us, though, was the cost of everything. Since converting to the Euro, the Cypriots seem to have taken the opportunity to put all of their prices up. This, coupled with the poor exchange rate, meant that daily expenses became very expensive indeed. For example, 4 ice creams & two waters from a kiosk on the beach cost 16 Euros! In addition, the cost of food & drink at the hotel was also very high. One lunchtime (at the Vitaminas bar) we had two plates of chips & two jacket potatoes, one bottle of water, two kids' drinks & a beer & it came to a whopping 40 euros!! After that we grabbed a snack on Nissi beach but even that was high & left a nasty taste in the mouth.

We found some nice restaurants this year. We hate the tourist restaurants along Nissi Avenue (the ones with play equipment in the gardens) & learnt by bitter experience that the restaurants that had pictures of the food outside tended to be of poor quality & higher prices than the traditional restaurants not specifically aimed at the tourists. We asked local Cypriots for recommendations of good restaurants with local style food & found a couple of lovely ones in Ayia Napa itself. Taverna Napa & Stamna both did amazing Meze. They are close to each other on the same road & are in buildings that were originally homes. They were the best quality & also the cheapest. At Stamna I had the best Houmus I've ever tasted &, upon hearing this, the owner brought me out a tub of it to take away with me!

We visited Waterworld water park which the kids loved & is a great day out. Unfortunately the food there is not great, is overpriced & you're not allowed to take your own food in. Otherwise the children (& my husband - the big kid) loved this park & spent 6 hours sliding down things!

The hotel entertainment is rubbish but isn't that always the case with foreign hotels? They never seem to get it right but we don't go there for that so I don't include it in my rating consideration.

In summary, the hotel itself is much improved & we enjoyed our stay. However, until the pound becomes stronger against the Euro, we will avoid returning to Cyprus as it is overpriced. We worked out that we could have had a week in the Maldives (they use the US dollar) on an all inclusive basis for slightly less than we paid overall for this break!

The Adams Beach Hotel was not our first choice of accomodation...sadly 2 weeks before we were due to fly out on our honeymoon, first choice told us our original hotel had been over booked....The Adams Beach was the replacement offer.

My first impressions were good...the hotel is immaculate, with friendly, helpful staff. There were plenty of sunbeds and choice of pools. Great facilities for the children, even though we hadn't taken ours, we felt our four girls would've loved it. Lots of extras to be had around the hotel....like a hairdressers/gym etc

There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from in the hotel itself...but they are very expensive....over 9 Euros for 2 large diet cokes. This for us was the only down side to our stay. This is a 5 star hotel and their prices for food and drink certainly are 5 star! Howeve there is a supermarket attached to the hotel where you can by beer/soft drinks etc at resonable prices and the hotel didn't seem to mind you taking these around the pool or to your room.

Thankfully there are a number of great restaurants within a 10min stroll down the road at half the price. We never ate our evening meal at the hotel but had our breakfast there as we were on a B&B basis. There was a HUGE variety of food for breakfast, something for everyone.

Our original choice of hotel wasn't a 5 star, so we felt a little over whelmed as to what to expect.....the men didn't have to dress up for dinner though it does state that they were to wear long trousers for dinner etc We were so scared incase we got billed for things. Everything had a price! ie: They would ask for a supplement to store your own produce in the fridge in the room.

There were numerous weddings whilst we were there. Im not sure i would've liked to have got married out there in the hotel, but from what i saw it was very tastefully done.

There was a beach party every day until 7 at night on nissi bay, but after it had finished it was very quiet...The Adams Beach had its own section of private beach which was a god send as Nissi Bay looked very busy.

Overall we had a great time, lots of places to visit near by like the waterpark etc
