“Best of both world"s”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Ok, this is not the first time for us at the Asterias Beach,in fact I first stayed there in 1988 when it was much smaller,but it has been in the same family all this time and the same high standards have been maintained.Very few UK travel companies feature this hotel (Jet 2 now have it in their brochure) and the clientele,seems to be mainly from European countries and Russia.(this was in October) The hotel is very clean, the staff very friendly and there are many repeat guests.The beach is one of the best in Cyprus,though the cost of the beds and umbrellas on the beach can mount up.(2.50 euros each as on all public beaches) The many beds around the hotel pools are free. Most guests seem to be All Inclusive and the selection of food is impresive to say the least,but if you want a change, Ayia Napa is only 5 minutes away by taxi.In conclusion,this hotel is well worth considering for a quiet up market family holiday but don"t expect to meet masses of Brits!

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd Floors over looking the sea and Ayia Napa get the sunrise and not the heat from the sun...

We stayed at the Asterias Beach Hotel in a junior suite (terrace&jacuzzi) end of october 2013, end of the season for over a week and travaled around a little bit.

To sum up- CYPRUS IN GENERAL is not a good destination right now- you are somehow trapped on an island sourranded by poor people that were robbed by their own government (bank crisis) and from my personal experiance many of this people have no problem to cheat or steal from you after all of this happaned to them...You have to watch out all the time. I didn't feel this way in Spain or Portugal -countries that also surrvived a financial crisis lately

ASTERIAS BEACH HOTEL:

- SAFTY: we found obvious signs of breaking in on the terrace door to our suite! How can the menagement of the hotel not bother to remove this! Does the robbery happen so often that they don't even care anymore? The suites with jacuzzi are on the ground floor. Public parking and public street are just few meters away and a potential thief can easly jump over a hedge about 1 meter high in order to get in. As we arrived it was highly recommanded to us to use a safe in our suite-you have to pay extra for using the safe!

- BEACH: you cannot really enjoy the Macronissis beach because there are planty of empty sun chaires spreaded all over it. Nobody collects them, they stay on the beach all day and night long, even at the end of the season when only about 1/3 or even less of the sun chairs are needed. Sun chairs are mostly damaged or used up. Umbrellas are rusted.

- FOOD: very bad to eatable. Good restaurants and center of Ayia Napa are far away. Taxi to get there 10€ one way. If you are really determined to spend your holiday in this region choose some five stars hotel near to the Nissi Beach. At least there are many different restaurants around. I can recommend Sage with international kitchen and great gourmet food or Limelight Taverna with traditional greek food.

-ALL-INCLUSIVE concept is ridicolous anyway. black tea is included but for green tea you have to pay extra. And so on , and so on. You are better of going to some five stars hotel-probably you get the same price at the end. Using the sun chairs around to the pool area is included but for the sun chairs and umbrellas at the Makronissos beach next to the hotel you have to pay anyway. This is not a private beach of the hotel.

STAFF: Some of the staff was rude and respectless (Elisaveta?). Not only towards the tourist but also to eachother. Some of them acted childisch and unprofessional.

Thank you choosing the Asterias Beach Hotel for your end-of-season week in Cyprus.
I personally feel very sorry for your failure to enjoy your time in Cyprus. I must say you do talk absolute drivel when describing your entirely unfounded fears of getting ripped off or mugged. It's the first and probably last time I will read the comment: "You have to watch out all the time" .
The Asterias junior suites are brand new and very popular. I have to assure you that the recent attempted break in was just an attempt and the culprit failed to gain entry but did scratch the balcony door. The replacement sliding Aluminium door was ordered but not yet ready to install in time for your arrival. I apologise for this and the bad impression it gave to you. Here at the Asterias Beach Hotel we take measures to protect our guests property such as double balcony door locks, balcony door intruder alarms, online logging of all front door entry/exit events and high security front door locks complete with lock defenders.
All beaches in Cyprus are regulated by their respective municipalities which license the hiring of sun loungers and umbrellas to private operators. Makronissos beach has approximately 7 operators (including Asterias Beach Hotel) licensed to operate there. It's down to each individual operator when they remove their loungers for the Winter. I would advise you to holiday in the Winter season when the beaches are generally deserted.
It's so difficult for me to know what you mean about the buffets in Asterias. I do understand that each of us has their likes and their dislikes. Why don't you try and be more specific about what you didn't like. It sounds to me like you if you are so particular about food you should have booked to stay on Bed & Breakfast so that you eat wherever you fancy each time and definitely not All Inclusive.
I will look at the charge for green tea for All Inclusive guests. As I explained earlier sun lounger and umbrella hire on all Cyprus beaches is regulated by the local municipalities. The licensed operators are charged an annual fee and are obliged to charge a fixed hire charge. The Asterias Beach Hotel is obliged, under the terms of its license, to charge for the hire of sun loungers and umbrellas on Makronissos beach but not at the pool terrace. This applies to all hotels in Cyprus.
I am proud of the professionalism and hard work done by all our staff. I would welcome any specific details of your entirely unspecific complaint if you would like me to investigate your complaint further.

German run hotel with a very nice private beach. Plenty of watersports such as jet skiing and wind surfing on your doorstep. Waterpark is ten minutes away, and the fun fair is just down the other end of Ayia Napa (try Go Karting there!)

The rooms are nice enough for the price, though a bit sterile for my liking (almost all white decor.) The beds are also single beds joined together, which feels a little unromantic. Showers, white pristine, are essentially watering can pressure.

The hotel has a small shop for snacks, massage parlor, exercise room, pools, etc.

Ayia Napa is generally happy tacky. That's what you'll get wherever you stay here. For the price it isn't a bad bet.

Stayed here for one night after spending the day on the Makronissos beach (which is outstanding see separate review) - The reception staff were quite functional but helpful - however the staff in the pool restaurant and bar were excellent - friendly chatty and helpful. They were also flexible in accommodating our request for a bottle of champagne, a carton of orange juice, and a bucket of ice - not only that but they carried it all to the beach for us too. The rooms are functional and a little sparse but the bed was really comfy and I had a great nights sleep. The breakfast was fine and as expected for a hotel at this price and category. The close proximity to the beach is the best feature here.

Although the beach is lovely and the decor is very nice, this hotel is slightly let down by its food, which is distinctly average e.g tinned fruit instead of fresh for breakfast, strong squash instead of fruit juice etc. Also a series of problems with our room, which looked out onto the car park, although immediately put right, gave the impression of a hotel which has started to fall down on its maintenance.
Nevertheless, the entertainment was very good and we had a nice holiday.

I stayed there for just one night and i left with the best impressions. A very clean and luxurious hotel with one of the best and cleanest seas in cyprus right next to it. Friendly staff. The highlight of the hotel is its wonderful and reach breakfast 5*+++ :) !!!! Very comfortable beds. Highly recommended, I am definitely going there again next summer. The only bad i found was the poor signal - nearly no signal of the wifi but this was not very important for me.
