My partner and I have just come back from staying at the Odessa (6am this morning) and what can I say? The staff are brilliant! They are courteous, polite and incredibly helpful, not to mention hard working. They don't stand still for 5 minutes! We stayed on a half board basis and thoroughly enjoyed the food on offer. There was such a choice for breakfast, whatever your taste, and the evening meal was equally as good. The hotel was full yet people were not kept waiting to dine - tables were cleared and laid for diners incredibly quickly. The hotel room was clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated and kept very clean with beds made every day by the hard working staff. The bar and reception staff were always lovely and nothing was too much trouble.
We have had a wonderful holiday and would go back to the Odessa without hesitation.
What I would like to say that it is extremely sad that people will choose to be so negative when writing their review on Tripadvisor, picking up and even photographing imperfections in the hotel. Perhaps if we all went round our own homes with a camera we may well have a shock! If you choose to spend your time photographing bits of the hotel you clearly don't know how to enjoy a good holiday, that presumably you've saved hard for, and you definitely need to get a life!!
Like everything, from time to time money needs to be spent on things as nothing stays "as new" for ever, and I believe the hotel have spent and plan to spend more on refurbishments. It is a large busy hotel with lots of visitors with pushchairs, wheelchairs, children etc. and that is going to take it's toll after a period of time - my house wouldn't withstand it that's for sure.
We went on holiday for a break as we've not had one for 3 years, we saw a lot of the island, hired a car and clocked up 2000 km in a week as there's so much to see and do. I was last in Protaras over 12 years ago and clearly a lot of time and money has been spent on revamping the sea front and other areas for the benefit of us holiday makers and we should appreciate it - not complain.
Thank you to all the hotel staff for helping to make our holiday so memorable.
