“Even better second time!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

The hotel is in a great location, it is directly on the beach, about 20 minutes walk from Protaras, so set away from the Hustle and Bustle but near enough to walk out for a night on the town.
This was our second visit to Cavo Maris. I was a bit nervous as we had recommended to our friends who travelled with us and worried a second visit would not be as good as our memories. We had nothing to worry about though. Everything was brilliant:
*huge choice of freshly cooked food every mealtime, with different themes each night
*really friendly service from all the staff who greeted us so warmly every day, especially Cristos with his fishing advice for my husband
*the hotel was immaculate and staff were constantly cleaning all areas
*maids were brilliant, with lovely touches for the children
*we were repeaters and found the additional touches for repeaters were very thoughtful and really appreciated
We had a great holiday and look forward to visiting again - can't understand why this is not a four star hotel!

Dear d0nna_pet

Many thanks for your excellent review following your stay with us in August 2013 where "everything was brilliant".

We noted with pleasure your comments:
- hotel is in a great location
- huge choice of freshly cooked food
- really friendly service
- hotel was immaculate
- maids were brilliant
- additional touches for repeaters were very thoughtful

We are really very happy to realise that our efforts are appreciated by our guests. Putting things down correctly is highly appreciated. Indeed, everything you have described in your review about our hotel is absolutely correct and reflects the real quality of our standards and services. We go out of our way for our clients comfort and our fully satisfied repeat guests of about 40%, proves that.

Please note that our hotel is widely accepted (by our guests and our Co-operators), as one of the best 3* hotels, comparing favourably with many 4* hotels. A lot of our guests are pleasantly surprised and are asking us,like yourselves, why our hotel is only a 3 star hotel. We are greatly pleased and honoured for that. As a matter of fact our hotel fulfils all the specifications of a 4 star hotel and compares favourably with many of them.

On behalf of the team of the Cavo Maris Beach Hotel, we would like once again to thank you for putting things so right and wish you a nice Autumn/Winter season. We certainly look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back to our hotel in the future.

Best regards

very nice enjoyable stay.
food very nice, entertainment with serg is very good, location very good, all inclusive drinks are local but ok, rooms very clean, balconies in the rooms are very low so watch the little ones, also if you leave the room door open and then open the patio door the room door slams very fast, again watch the little ones fingers, it would be an idea to put a slow closer on the room door.
also couldnt understand why we couldnt get a hot drink with our main meal on the all inclusive?
but overall a very nice stay.
the aqua naut diving school on the beach is brill, and protaris down the road is full of lively bars and entertainment if you fancy a change.

Room Tip: beach or pool view is a must

We can not fault anything about this hotel. We have had the most amazing time and were extremely sad to leave. Our children are 12 and 3 and were entertained everyday by Sergio and Anastasia, who have so much time for everyone. Our son had his birthday whilst there and was given flowers and then a lovely birthday cake at evening meal such a lovely touch. The photos you see on the reviews truly represent the stunning beauty of the hotel and location. The cleanliness of this hotel deserves a 5 star rating! All of the staff work tirelessly to maintain it. Our room was cleaned every day, the cleaners deserves medals.
We stayed all inclusive and were amazed at the selection and quality of food, in between meals you can obtain snacks from the bar area in doors this includes ice creams as you can not get those from the pool bar. We never went hungry or thirsty during our all inclusive stay. Food and drinks for all inclusive ends at 11 pm each night, there is a huge selection so anyone who complains really are sad and need to give their heads a shake!
Sergio who is in charge of entertainment runs a really fun water aerobics session each morning (except Fridays his day off) he really does get everyone going, he runs water polo in the afternoons and will always get people playing table tennis or darts. He has a wicked sense of humour and us laughing from start to finish, he also is a mean games master on an evening when it comes to adult games. Anastasia runs the kids club each day except fridays, times are 10-12 and 3-5pm, those four hours each day can make a massive difference to your time if you have kids who need the stimulation, the kids club is 4-12 years. Anastasia also runs the entertainment with Sergio on a night time and they dedicate at least an hour each night to the kids with all sorts of crazy dancing. There is a live act every night from belly dancers/ singers/ magicians/ fire dancers and parrot shows right through to karaoke and quizzes. If you don't fancy staying in the hotel the main centre of protaras is a 5 minute bus ride.
The beach is stunning and operates all different water sports however these are nothing to do with the hotel and neither are the sun beds on the beach, the guy charges 7.50 euro for 2 sun beds for the full day with parasol, so not too bad. There are plenty of beds pool side, although you always get the eager beavers at 6 in a morning putting towels out when there is really no need.
If you stay all inclusive and want to go out for the day you can order a pack up the night before from the restaurant, we hired a car for four days to travel about the island so this really helps with food costs whilst out.
There is free wi-fi in the hotel reception/lobby area where there are plenty of comfy sofas and chairs. There is also a children's game room with lots of arcade games obviously these cost, there is also pool and table tennis just outside on the terrace which is next door to the hotel shop where you can buy most things should you need to.
On each floor there are water points for filling up bottles or flasks for night time or days out obviously it is safe drinking water. There is also one located poolside and indoor bar area should you get tired of drinking alcohol lol
Reception staff are all very helpful and work very hard round the clock.
We upgraded to sea view room before we went but my mum did hers on arrival at a cost of 10 euro per day, to avoid disappointment it's worth doing it before hand as once you have sea view you won't want anything else.
In a nut shell if you don't want a good time and great food in a stunning location where you are made to feel part of the family then go somewhere else lol
We are waiting to book for 2014 : )
Also I found booking a taxi from the airport is cheaper then transfers and a lot quicker! I booked this online with jet2.com before we left.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms all the way :)

This hotel claims just 3 stars but it must be one of the best 3 star hotels in the world. My party of 3 stayed on room and breakfast terms for 2 weeks. Ample car parking spaces for the number of guests in late August. For those in wheelchairs or pushing baby buggies the hotel is well set up with slopes and lifts. We had a good sized air conditioned bedroom with a large balcony overlooking the pool. Good double glazing shut out any noise from the entertainment offered each evening on the verandah. Housekeeping was unobtrusive and very good.
Breakfast each morning could be taken in the air conditioned restaurant or on the verandah. The hot buffet and cold buffet offered a good variety of well presented food and I especially praise the variety of fresh fruit available at breakfast.
There were plenty of clean sunbeds around the pool and in the gardens overlooking the beach. The beach is not controlled by the hotel but access to the beach by steps or slope was easy. No need to pack beach towels - after a 5 Euro deposit for each towel it cost 1 Euro each week to rent a good clean towel from the hotel.
Most days we lunched in the Sirena Restaurant - a pleasant shaded building next to the pool.
My thanks to everyone at the hotel, especially Elias, Angela, Tassos, Haris and Andreas.
If I didn't need to work I could cheerfully spend months on end at Cavo Maris.

This place really does live up to its photos. Nice pool with bar, terraced lawns with sunbeds, beach in its own little bay with crystal clear water. Breakfast was a very comprehensive hot and cold buffet with loads of food. Most staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms and public areas were very clean. Good value, well situated just outside main Protaras. Would definitely return.

What can I say? This was our second time at the cavo Maris. I didn't think it could get any better but it did. We had the best time ever. If you have children this is the most relaxing safe place I have ever been to. The pool is fantastic as is the beach. Never had a problem getting sunbeds whatever time we went down to the pool.Food on all inclusive was lovely. Always a big selection and our 4year old can be fussy with his food but he ate really well at every meal time, as did we. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. We were never made to feel like we were second best because we were on all inclusive. Sergio again did a great job with the entertainment. We will 100% be returning next year

Where do you start? I was introduced to this place by my wife and her family around 6 years ago and I couldn't understand anyone who kept going back to the same place twice a year until I arrived at the Cavo Maris. Yes we have been to other really nice places but something just keeps us coming back. From the moment you arrive at the hotel to the minute you leave I feel that we are treated like part of the family at this place. I have seen a lot of great reviews coming in and it's great to see because it doesn't get the credit it deserves and having read the bad reviews it annoys you having seen the money and hard work that has been put in to modernise this hotel and change things all for the better over these years. We last stayed from June 2nd - June 12th and having missed a year in 2012 due to getting married we noticed some great changes, the food was great and had a good selection and as I said earlier some of the changes were great. We are now due our first baby in November and we will definitely be back in 2014 as this place feels like a home from home and we know we will be treated really well. I am sure the hotel will keep this up and we are already looking forward to our next holiday!!! The Howden/Wright/Noon family
