Sadly Constantinos The Great is no longer the great. During our stay we experienced sheets that are so old they are bobbly, they have been ripped, stained and even had cigarette burns. The towels were also stained and some were so old they were grey.
The dinner buffet area was all in 1 corner and at times was busier than the strip!. Although the food was cooked well, the choice was similar to lunch!
The staff did their best and some were very friendly and helpful. The “Boss” sauntered around the hotel and didn’t appear to communicate with guests, other than Cypriots! This may be because of the language barrier or perhaps he was more comfortable speaking to non residents, who were quite happy t o use the facilities of the hotel for a fee! This was despite signs on the umbrellas and in the the grounds that the use of the hotel and the pool, was for resident guests only! Local children came in with backpacks and used the pool and the facilities as if it was an after school club!
Children in the “kids club” were left to their own devices and the room and the facilities were poor!! The entertainment team tried their best with their non existent budget and playing bingo with a cocktail stick was an experience!
The reception staff did their very best to accommodate us and was quite helpful when we had a problem with the rooms; 1 smelt of smoke, the patio door wouldn’t lock in another, they were noisy and the air con leaked in one!! We also had a medical issue and needed WIFI and the office kindly allowed us to try and use the office internet. Unfortunately it wouldn’t connect to the site, but we were successful in a bar on the strip!
Although the location was great and we did meet some lovely people, as with a lot of other guests we would not recommend the hotel or return! It’s a 5* which gives you less, rather than more!!
