We returned from a two week all inclusive stay on 02/10/2011.
After a good flight out on a Thompsons Airlines jet we arrived at the hotel about 3:00 in the afternoon. Check in was very efficient and we were in the room (321) within 10 mins.
We had a sea view room which was spotlessly clean and tidy. The room was more than big enough for the two of us with sufficient storage. The bathroom in our room was dated but not as desperately in need of renovation as some reviews had said. The bed was comfortable and the room had a flat screen TV (not many English channels, but we didn’t go to Cyprus to watch TV so that didn’t matter). The bedroom furniture was in a good state of repair.
Overall the food was excellent. We thought the choice was very good. Personally I am not an adventurous eater to the mainly based UK menu suited me. Breakfast was buffet style as per most European hotels we have stayed in with all the normal choices. Lunch was A-La-Carte from a fixed menu served outside. On the all inclusive package you could have anything off this menu without restriction. Warning though lunches are large. Dinner was again buffet style, lots of choice but as I said was very English.
The pool and the surrounding area is excellent. Plenty of sun beds but I agree with a lot of comments the ”towel commandos” were out very early to reserve their spots so if you want a good spot be prepaid to join in. One of the stars of the Tasia Maris is the super efficient Marina who runs the pool bar always has a smile.
As this is a Thompson Gold Hotel, entertainment is provided (several games ending with the daily quiz) around the pool every day. This is arranged by the very hard working Becky and Ashley. These two people do a very good job they work all day around the pool and then compare the evening entertainment. They are always approachable and up for a good laugh. Even though Becky injured her Back and Ashley had a chest infection they worked through it as they did not want to let anyone down.
In the evening we had “Break in the middle” the brilliant Julia and Gary as the resident duo. They are great. There were also more games from Ashley , Becky with Julia and Gary joining in. I will never forget the Mr & Mrs Game we took part in or the “Intro game” – “Tiger Feet” will never be the same. The professional acts were a bit hit and miss with the exception of “Mark Summers as Elvis” who was brilliant on the last night of our holiday.
Whilst watching the entertainment the bar staff were very efficient and we were never left waiting for drinks Chris, Mark, Elley and the other guy who name stated with P (sorry I forgot your name).
Overall a great holiday – Thanks All
