“Excellent - again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2011

This is our 2nd visit to the Constantinos having stayed last year at the same time. Forget all the moaners and groaners, the hotel is excellent, the food is wonderfull with a massive choice every day, the carvery with a diffent choice of meat is cooked to perfection, the watiers and especially Artemis (the head waiter) are fantasic who look after their guests with great pleasure. We think they have stepped up their game even more since last year. The table wine at dinner is the best in any hotel we have stayed, which, as we all know is usually dreadfull.
The rooms are clean maybe a little dated but how long do we really spend in them.
I know there has been a lot of criticism regarding the works at the front which created a few yards walk to access the beach (quite a hardship whilst on holiday - I don't think so!) but before our return on 25th May the boadwalk in front of the Constantinos had been completed. Also the moaners about the crane and the bulding of another hotel next to the Vrissiana (our neighbouring hotel) was no problem at all even though our room partially overlooked the works.
We stayed on an all inclusive package and found no difference in the service given to the ½ board guests.
Another gripe by some AI guests regarded no bottled water being provided, with a bottle of water from the supermarket only 70 cents, no big deal considering the cost of the holiday.
My comments to all these people is get a life and enjoy a fantastic holiday at this superb hotel.

The service was first class, attentive but not intrusive.
The room was spacious but still managed to be cozy with good storage space.
Hairdryer and tea making facilities with telivision if you wanted to chill out in the room or on the balcony and enjoy the breathtaking views of the sea.
The comfortable beds made it feel like a home from home.
The location could not be better, wheather you want to take a walk along the sea front at the bottom of the pool, go to the shops, take a short bus trip to Ayia Napa or enjoy the nightlife in Protaras, its got it all.
We are going back later this year to do it all again.
There was nothing I or my wife did not like, which makes a nice change.

Room Tip: As long as the room above the firs floor they are.

Surly staff, very poor hospitality especially as it seems to be staffed mainly by casual Eastern Europeans.Food never changes and is left over from lunch time to the evening meal with an apology for a dessert. Pools not bad and dont get taken to pay extra for a seaview room.By no means a 5 star.

Sorry to disagree with yesterdays reviewer you forgot a lot of things.We arrived last
Sunday and no room available.Paid for Double Room and Sea view changed the room
3 times! The Bathrooms are dated still have shower curtains over the bath and old
Fashioned hairdryer. What about all the workman still replacing the walkway in front of
the Hotel and the Large Crane and building works next door bar one.Crane starts up at
8am each morning and the New Hotel is only at Groundworks Level.I emailed the Hotel
In advance about the works and was told a lie that this was completed! Yes the staff were
absolutely lovely people and the food was only OK but it was much of the same really.If you
Party to all hours then you won't be disturbed by the noise from the Bars at the top of the
road that echo on until early hours of morning we saw elderly people asking to change
their rooms.Obviously the younger guests see this Hotel in different way as they have not
travelled the world. This Hotel should be downgraded to 3 star.

Room Tip: The new Hotel next door is available

Before I went away I looked at several reviews which said various bad things and was starting to put me off, however it could not have more far from the truth. All the staff for very nice polite and felt like we were treated like royalty. The food was some of the best food I have ever had and I never saw the samething twice through the whole week we were there. The hotel is in a great location with pool, small grass section and then the beach all within a stones throw away. The entertainment team were lovely and had activities planned throughout the day for people who wanted it and then evening entertainment to follow. The decor and the style of the hotel was very nice and would not want to change a thing. The whole experiance impressed me so much that I would have no hesitation in returning next year. IF YOU GO THERE, TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Stayed at this hotel the first two weeks in May on AI basis. There was little entertainment as the onsite entertainment team were not allowed to provide a show as the management objected. You could see them practice daily, by the pool, but they had to put the show on in nearby hotels. There were ten head waiters in the dining room, which seemed excessive for the number of guests. They were rude to both guests and junior staff alike. AI's were not allowed bottled water but any other guests were. There were kettles provided in the rooms but no bottled water. The food was the same each day with a lot of stews. There is no a la carte restaurant which you would expect in a 4/5 star hotel. All the alcohol and soft drinks were watered down. I saw my first five inch head on a glass of coke! The domestic and bar staff were excellent, which made up for the rest. It was the first hotel I have ever been to, which I didn't think was value for money
