Just flew back from this hotel for the second time this year. To be honest we had such a bad time in June we did try and get the hotel changed however Thomas Cook wouldn't allow us to change. We arrived on the same flights as we had done in June and on arrival everything was again great. I had telephoned the hotel a few weeks before to ensure that our request for a low floor room was met due to the problems earlier in the year. I have to say they came through for us and we were situated on the ground floor facing the supermarkets.
All Inclusive - Again the same as before you don't go hungry however if I was to make one point, then I would suggest a better 'snack' menu, in previous hotels I have stayed in, in Cyprus, I have always had a Buffet Style Breakfast and Evening Meal but had a 'Bar Style Menu' to order from at lunchtime and in between times. I think personally that older people and anyone with a little taste don't necessarily want Chicken Nuggets, Fish Fingers and such like. However on a good note the Samosa's were lovely!
Pool area, seemed to be jam packed and a little too over crowded for me, and the behaviour of some British Holiday makers is a little embarrassing to say the least, and I was disappointed to have seen the arrival of the good old 'Football Shirt" around the poolside however this comes with the 'terrace' like attitude which is a bit of a let down.
The entertainment - this for me was a sticking point in June so much so that it was one of the main reasons I moved over to the Marlita Beach. However I have to say that the One Stop Team were brilliant, and the addition of the kids club is fantastic! So a huge sigh of relief when I wasn't faced with the adult style games again in front of my kids.
I don't think I would use the hotel again, I have tried twice now and felt it resembled a Haven Holiday Camp in Blackpool however understand that some people may like this??
If you're looking for a chilled out holiday without a rowdy crowd this isn't the hotel for you, however would recommend it to families that want to use the All Inclusive as a free for all drink fest, with the additional Chicken Nugget thrown in - it just wasn't for me at all. For example I was woken at 430am by drunken guests shouting from balcony to balcony one morning, and next door knocked on their down at silly o'clock in the morning like they were beating the door down.
Hotel Staff are lovely and the reception girls and Simone were excellent, along with Melanda and Kristina in the restaurants. The location is 30 minutes walk out of Protaras centre however opposite a lovely beach.
The only other thing I would add although not about the hotel but our inbound flight to Larnaca, it was horrendous with a wedding party on board, I have never seen behaviour like it, they were swearing being loud playing music and if it was all just drink related I would have eaten my hat, as the amount of visits to the toilet and then emerging with eyeballs like saucers was ridiculous Thomas Cook Airlines continued to supply them with alcohol and allow them to behave in a horrendous fashion in front of families and old people, I wonder if this should of been dealt with a bit better.
