My husband and I recently got married here on the 5th June 2008. Well what a week and where do I start.
Firstly the arrival was very friendly and smooth and the sea view room, which we had, on the second floor had the most fantastic views. We had a bottle of champagne waiting for us on arrival which we thought was a nice touch.
We chose the half board option and the food was delicious with a good variety and something for everyone. The staff are both friendly and attentive.
We booked the wedding through argo and they were very well organised and looked after every last detail, thanks Trish. I was a little worried before arriving at cyprus as I had not been able to arrange anything before I got there but believe me there was nothing to worry about. Everything had already been sorted and every detail was thoroughly covered when I got there by both the excellent wedding coordinator and the argo rep. My wedding dress was even steamed at the hotel for a small fee as I had packed in a box and put it in hand luggage. There was no way I was letting it go through into the luggage hold. This gave me three days to relax before the big day.
The wedding day itself was the most fantastic day ever, this was also echoed by the 36 guests with the wedding party. I got picked up by the girls who did my hair and make-up with my mum and three bridesmaids, and taken to ayia napa to their salon. They did a fantastic job on all five of us in just two hours which left us plenty of time and we didn't have to get up too early either. The ceremony was short and sweet and the photographer took the most flattering pictures amongst the beautiful setting of the gardens and the sea. The weather was very hot with bright sunshine, however the sea breeze kept me fairly cool which was one my worries in my full length dress.
We had a sit 5 course meal in a private section of the ambrosia restaurant and it was the best wedding meal I have ever had. We had roast beef and yorkshire pudding and it was delicious succulent lean beef with homemade yorkshire puds. Even the weddding cake(baked by the hotel) was lovely, almost ice cream like on the outside.
We then retired to a section of the baccus bar where we enjoyed a finger buffet and some live music provided by the the hotel for all guests. Even though there are other weddings going on you really don't notice as everything is organised so well in a way that you never really see any other wedding parties around you and not only that but the staff make you feel very special and like yours is the only wedding that day. Some of the wedding party were staying at other hotels all of which had weddings going on and they felt that ours was by far the best setting.
The morning after the night before we had a lovely cooked breakfast with champagne brought to our room which we enjoyed on the balcony of our room overlooking the sea.
Altogether we had the most amazing, very well organised and relaxed day. We would definately recommend this venue for other couples who fancy going abroad to get married. The holiday itself was fantastic too and we would definately return to this hotel along with many others in our wedding party.
