Stayed here for a family wedding end of June 2014. How this hotel gets a 4* rating baffles me. First off quite a long transfer from Larnaca airport as its last drop off.
From the outside the hotel is quite grubby & dated looking. Reception area is ok, could do with better A/C as at times it feels like there is none.
Rooms are badly dated & uncomfortable also walls are very thin you'll hear every noise from rooms next to you. The double room we booked was two single beds pushed together. Our "view" from the balcony was of waste ground behind the hotel. Also worth noting you only get 1 key for your room?!?
Food is very basic & bland with little variety from day to day consisting mainly of salads, pasta, rice & chips very little meat/poultry throughout our stay. No snacks such as toasties, crisps, nuts, burgers, available on all inclusive package between meal times. All inclusive stops at 11pm which I have never experienced before, very strange.
Entertainment is non-existent they do a mini disco for children in the evening but there is no entertainment whatsoever for adults.
Location of hotel is not that great either, certainly would not recommend to elderly/disabled or those with young children as there is no bars/restaurants or shops within walking distance.
On the plus side beautiful beach/marina just outside hotel overall we had an ok stay because of the family group that stayed here, but certainly not worth the money we spent to get here you CAN get a lot better for less.
On a side note our tour operator was Olympic Holidays truly horrific experience traveling through them. Did not know we had a rep on site, our 1 week all inclusive package stopped at 12noon on our 7th day even though our flight was not until 10:25pm so we paid for 7nts & after 6nts had to check out to then be asked to pay €20 for lunch! Our return transfer was late & to top it all off they then seated our group separately throughout the plane on return flight.
In short get more for your money at a different hotel & avoid Olympic holidays as a tour operator.
