“Good quality hotel, well located”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Great spot near the main road of AN entertainment, across the road from the harbour and Limansaki beach, and 30 mins walk along the boardwalk promenade to Sandy beach then Nissi beach. I booked a sea view room over looking the pool, but wasn't allocated one - instead had a side view overlooking the road. Note for Travel Republic clients, the hotel and TR need to resolve descriptions ie what exactly constitutes a side sea view etc. Despite being virtually full, Diana from the management team resolved this very well, upgraded us for night 1 and organised the right room for the rest of the stay. All the staff were helpful and courteous and the guests, rooms and grounds were well looked after. Room 221 was a good size, modern and well equipped with great view west over the pool and sea. Breakfast was OK, could do with more fresh fruit and better variety of cooked options. Swim up pool bar was not in use and looked like it had been out of action for some time, which was a shame as it should be a nice feature and instead looked rather neglected. The pool area is lovely although it's worth noting there's not much at all for children other than a paddling pool. The entertainment was limited to bingo in the evenings which seemed to suit some guests. Overall the hotel has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and I would visit again.

Room Tip: If a view matters to you, be specific about what view you want and select room type carefully eg sea...

I've just returned from a 10 night stay at the Faros hotel.
Maybe it's the best 3 star hotel that I've ever seen. Good service, affable reception staff.
The weather was fine - 29-30. I think it's not bad for the middle of October.
Excellent hotel, excellent location. Strongly recommended! -)

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Faros. We stayed there from 25 Sept to 9 Oct. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the reception staff and promptly shown to our room which was located on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious and exceptionally clean. There was maid service each day and anything that we asked for was no problem. There was a fridge, safe and hair dryer in the room also a flat screen tv. There was plenty of hanging and drawer space too. The balcony had 2 chairs and small table and we had a pool and sea view. Also you could watch the sun set each evening (room 227). The food was always fresh and well presented and the chefs were immaculately clean and available to speak with the guests each evening. The location of the hotel is excellent...2 mins to the harbour beach and 5 mins to the square. Demitrius and Eva deserve a mention....they were outstanding. The entertainments manager was sweet!! All the rest of the staff were also magnificent..very friendly and polite. We would hope to return again soon. Linda and Jimmy, N Ireland.

Room Tip: Recommend room 227 or the Honeymoon suite!!

The Faros is not your average 3 Star Hotel & in my opinion is nearer a 4 Star rating. The room we had was very large & had 2 double beds in it & had been recently refurbished. The balcony was spacious & the bathroom very well fitted out. The grounds are lovely around the swimming pool, which is very large. The breafast buffet offers a wide rqange of hot & cold food and you can sit inside or outside. The location of the hotel is superb, as it is close to all of the shops, restaurants & bars, so we could leave the car in the hotel car park at night time & walk everywhere. My only negative comment is that there is a charge for the fridge & safe, which for a stay of 14 nights would cost approximately 70 euros. In this day & age, a safe is a necessity, as people do not want to be carrying passports & other valuables around. It is a very long time since we have had to pay for a safe in 3 Star plus hotels. Apart from that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would have no hesitation in returning.

By far one of the best , if not the best hotel in Ayia Napa. The hotel rooms were spacious, with comfortable beds and most of them had a wonderful view of the pool ( at least the ones I had stayed in). There was a variety of food and the staff was always willing to help as well as the fact that they were extremely friendly and reliable. The atmosphere was very enjoyable every day and made my stay in July very pleasant. I would definitely choose to go to this hotel when I get the chance. Moreover the hotel had easy access to not only the port but also every facility and service of Ayia Napa which served to me to be very helpful.

While our first stay at the Faros in May 2012 was an enjoyable experience, our second stay was even better after the hotel underwent extensive renovation which extended the space of the bedrooms and provided wonderful verandas from where we had a good view of the sea and the town. The beds are comfortable and in spite of the high temperatures outside, it was a pleasure to snuggle down under a spotlessly clean duvet in a well air conditioned room. The new bathrooms are spacious too though the shower had little power. Breakfast was good and plentiful and it was wonderful to eat outside overlooking the beautiful pool. The staff are extremely friendly and we received a very warm welcome when we checked in when one of the receptionists remembered us from our first trip. Well done to all the Faros.
