Three swimming pools and a setting right in the heart of Ayia Napa make the Senator a great base for chilling and clubbing.
Staying here puts you right by Ayia Napa’s action. The nearest bars are only a couple of minutes’ walk away, and ‘The Square’ isn’t much further on. A five-minute taxi ride will get you to Nissi Beach.
The hotel’s interiors are pretty smart. Rooms are simple, but stylish, with tiled floors and wicker seats. The latter are arranged around the bars and restaurants, as well.
The Lobby bar is host to the weekly entertainment. In summertime music plays until 1am. The bar can stay open longer but music is turned off so that other guests aren't disturbed. Happy hour is from 4 to 5pm and 8 'til 10pm.
These simply presented 1-bedroom apartments are decorated in light tones making them bright and airy. You'll get a balcony or terrace for a bit of outdoor space. Plus, there's a functional kitchenette with gas ring, fridge, toaster and kettle. Air-conditioning* is also available. These sleep 4 with 1 extra bed in the bedroom, and 1 extra bed in the lounge.

Very enjoyable, clean, friendly staff. Overall the experience was flawless. Would recommend to anyone. Very close to the strip and local shops just opposite the hotel. Cheap food but of a very good standard. I would 100% want to go back. Don't read any negative reviews. Just people moaning for the sake of it.More
stayed in july
I stayed in this hotel when i went on a girls holiday in one of the main partying weeks in july, with 8 other girls. When we first arrived we were greated, giving our room keys and aircon remotes which was a nice free perk, the only thing which was annoying is we had 3 rooms of 3 people and two of our rooms were next to each other and the other room was on the other side of the hotel , which was a bit annoying but wasn't too much of a problem!
Rooms were really nice, beds were comfy and there was always plenty of hot water and mirrors and we got fresh towels every day almost ( when we actually let the cleaners in if we were awake) and our room had a balcony which was nice too. the hotel is opposite a shop which was so good for buying food and cheap alcohol for pre-drinks
staff were all really friendly , especially one of the bar men who was so funny to talk to! The cleaners were a bit annoying coming at around 10.30 am - 11am , we were all really hungover or asleep and they would knock for a while , a few times we told them not to bother cause we were to hungover to get up and let them in haha
The food menu was really nice and nicely prices, the food was average but when you feel rubbish in the morning any thing will do, had a really pretty seating area by the pool. the pool was nice they had a total of 3 pools, the one i mainly went in and sat by was the main one which was mainly full of young people around 18-23 , the hotel played loud music in the day , we often told them to turn it down a bit because it was a bit too loud and my head was pounding , but it was really nice atmosphere and great way to meet and hang round with friends, the other pools were more quite with no music and family based , no young people went to those. the one bad thing about the hotel was you had to pay for wifi and it was really expensive something like 60 euros the whole week, so i gave it a miss and just used local restaurants and bars free wifi which was a bit bad but we all managed.
location was really good , about an 10 min taxi ride to the beach which was about 8-10 euros, it was about 10 min walk if that to to the main strip and bars and restaurants which was really handy. Most of the restaurants around the hotel had really bad food especially ones in the strip and there was a fancy roof top restaurant in town which looked good but the food was so disgusting, one good restaurant was about a 5 min walk from the hotel which was run by British people.
overall was a really nice hotel, beautiful to look at, nice rooms , good facilities.. the only bad thing about it was the wifi costs, but would not recommend to families during july or early august as it would be too rowdy for kids and just full of young people!
would go again !More

10 minutes walk to the most perfect 'Nissi Beach'!!
We stayed in the Senator Hotel for a week in September. I looked hard for the right hotel at the right cost, because a lot of hotels I had looked at had cock roaches on the trip advisor photo's...and I certainly did not want that!! What I was looking for was a modern looking hotel, clean, comfortable and for it to be in walking distance of the beach, restaurants and night life... and this is what we got.
When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by a friendly man who made a joke about selling our passports on the black market, as they had to keep them for the first night. I like a little bit of banter so that was good. The man said we were getting one of the good rooms which they give to their guests who they think wont want to be disturbed. He then took us on a 5 minute walk out of the hotel and down the street to some kind of apartments which were not attached to the main part of the hotel. The room was nice, clean, with air con and everything you need for self catering. But I have got to admit I was a little bit disappointed that we weren't in the main part of the hotel and a little fearful a first because it was night when we arrived and I thought 'where is this guy taking us' (I could imagine some hostel scenario going down haha).
Any way in the morning all was well and we got used to not being in the main part of the hotel. It was just a short walk and didn't make a lot of difference. We spent many hours by the pool, with countless amounts ice cold beers and there were good tunes playing...some may say we were living the dream lol!
The Hotel was about 10 mins walk to lots of restaurants bars and the strip. The place did seem quieter then I had imagined Ayia Napa to be... we went in the middle of September. We mainly stayed in bars and restaurants because the clubs didn't seem to busy. The food in Cyprus was pretty poor to be honest, but what you expect from holiday food.
Nissi Beach is a perfect beach!! We spent a whole day there... the sea is soooo clear and warm. If you go to Ayia Napa you need to go to this beach!!
I would stay in the hotel again, but would ask for a room to be in the main part of the hotel and facing away from the main road, because all you could hear day and night was quads going up and down all the time... but to be fair, it appeared to be like this every where in Ayia Napa.
One other things to mention is the plugs are like English plugs in Cyprus... so don't do what I did and take your straighteners with the 2 pronged plug as you will have to buy an adapter. It was only cheap but I could have kicked myself.More
Beautiful hotel and excellent hospitality
Fantastic hotel and great location! All the staff we met at the hotel were very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. Our rooms were huge and beautiful, my room overlooked the pool and had everything you could need. It was spotless and cleaned on a regular basis. We didn't have a chance to go in the pools as we were out each day but the whole pool area was clean too. Kyriakos the bar manager was very welcoming and taught us lots of tricks! He also waved us off when we left which was a nice touch.
The hotel itself is about a 10 minute walk to the square which is where the main bars and restaurants are. You can get all the buses from this area (would recommend going to protaras!). In the opposite direction you can walk to sandy bay and nissi beach which takes about 20 minutes but is worth it - best beaches! Would definitely recommend the hotel to others.More
