Hello to everyone!
I would like to share my opinion about Atlantica Sungarden Hotel in Ayia Napa.
We spent two weeks in this hotel: me, my lovely wife and my cute young daughter (1 year and 9 months). I would say that this is the best hotel for having rest with children I've ever seen. The staff is very kind, there are lots of entertainment things for children (playgrounds, pools, animation, evening disco), a perfect restaurant with a perfectly working waiters. We lived in a family suit on the 3rd of the main building and it was very good. The windows were just opposite the sea - the view I have dreamed all my life. On the second floor there was a large opened aquarium with nice golden fishes and our daughter was very glad to say them hello just after getting up. =) The only thing that could be a bit annoying is that we lived just under the stage of the bar which is on the 4th floor - the evening entertainment program lasts until 11 p.m. However our daughter did not felt uneasy and have taught to sleep even if someone is dancing over ones head. =)
A few special words about restaurant. We stayed in hotel with all inclusive service and it was very and very nice. This is the first time I understood that a lamb can be so delicious. All dishes were perfect, especially meat. Hehe. =) We thought that we will have troubles with getting food for aour daughter, however we gave her the same things we took for ourselves and she was very happy about this. Thanks to the maitre d'hotel Andreas (a very good manager) the waiters served us perfectly. Special thanks to Tihomir, Charlie, Patrick, Christina, Veronika, Antonis and Chris. Since we are from Russia we were very surprised that lots of people there speaks Russian.
The hotel stands a bit far from various entertainment places of the town. But I consider that this is an advantage if you have a small child.
Not far from our hotel there was a beautiful sandy beach. As all sea beaches it is a municipal one and not included in hotel's service. The price for sun-beds and umbrellas are not very high - 2,5 EUR for each. My child was very happy about this beach and we also had lots of fun there. E.g. I had two jet-ski sessions there and I was very impressed by this fun. =) The beach is also quite far from the pier to have a clear water and, from the other hand, not so far to get there afoot and take a boat trip. We took a trip on a Yellow Submarine Trip and had a good time: 1,5 hours is not very difficult and very interesting for a small child - we saw lots of funny fishes.
We also have rent a car for 4 days and have visited Machairas Monastery, amphitheatre, several diggings, Larnaka, Limassol and Camel Farm. The places were great, however if you do not sure that your child can handle all-day-trips - I would not recommend you to visit such places (especially places in mountains like Machairas and Troodos - they are great, pretty, but the road there could be a bit difficult).
Other staff: the hotel provides ability to visit massage sessions and fitness gym. But we preferred to spent more time under the sun on the beach - just our personal preference. There is also an inside swimming pool with a jacuzzi. We saw it every day when coming from the lifts to the room, but also did not visit - it is also our personal preference, since we prefer to swim in the sea rather than in a swimming pool. =)
Finally, we had visited several times the Luna Park of Ayia Napa. Also a very nice place for having fun with children - there are a lot of entertainments. I also had fun there with a Sling Shot - it was very nice to feel what is a free fall. =)
Have fun, my friends! I would recommend you to visit Sungarden! =)
