Set right on the edge of postcard-worthy Sandy Bay, this hotel has a location worth shouting about. Not only are you just footsteps away from a golden stretch, you’ve got a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants on your doorstep. And if you want to turn the entertainment factor up a notch, the heart of Ayia Napa is just a 20-minute walk away.
The hotel itself is a contemporary whitewashed affair. Outside, the star feature has to be the pool. It’s a good size and wraps itself around one side of the hotel in a horseshoe shape. There’s an outdoor whirlpool bath, too, and a paddling pool for the little ones. Add that to a poolside bar and you’ve got the perfect chill-out spot.
Inside, the laidback vibe continues. Thanks to high ceilings and a fresh neutral colour scheme, rooms feel bright and airy. Cool tiled floors, simple wooden furniture, and beds dressed in crisp white cotton are the mainstays, while brightly coloured soft-furnishings create splashes of colour. All rooms come with balconies, too, and added extras like air-conditioning and satellite TVs are all part of the package.
Lastly, there’s the matter of the dining scene. Everything is served buffet-style here, so you can pick and choose from a mix of Mediterranean dishes and more well-known favourites. The restaurant has just been given a fresh new look, too. There’s also a marble-floored lounge bar which has just had a bit of a refurb. In here, exotic cocktails and refreshing long drinks are served until late.
Come and help yourself to buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food such as meats, fish, salads and veggie options are available to tuck into. Breakfast is within the Bed and Breakfast package. The restaurant is air-conditioned and men are required to wear long trousers.
As a visitor to Tasia Sands Hotel at least twice a year and three times some years since
2003 I was very disappointed to learn that Thompson Holidays had blocked booked it for 2013again for 2014. We usually stayed form 9 or 10 nights at at time but when I tried booking this year all I could get was 7, 11, or 14 nights so goodbye to the Tasia Maris Sands Hotel. I would to say that the staff were great and could not do enough for any visitor.
I hope Management dont live to regret having made this decision as like us many people we met over the years in the Hotel will like us move to other Hotels in the area

This hotel is lovely and even has its own private beach in a little private area. The views are amazing from the balcony too. The rooms are spacious and clean and id definitely stay here again. The lobby is also nice and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is good but slightly far to walk the one long toad to the hotel but once you pass that road it is by all the restaurants.More

Exceptional but could be excellent
First impressions always count and wow The Tasia Maris did,we were in the new extended part of the hotel where our room was spacious,immaculately clean and well situated with beautiful views of sea and pool view(paying the extra is worth it)although entertainment can be loud in the evening it's not on going too late.All the staff were welcoming and always friendly,especially Marina at the pool bar.Lovely beaches nearby,follow the coastal path is easy and so much quicker to explore the views on Nissi beach rather than trek the road.The food is great but we felt authentic dishes could be offered more,and did'nt expect most of sun beds around pool to be reserved with towels as its specified that this was not permitted in the hotel !!The manager MrT(we called him)greeted us,and during holiday interacted with the guests and said farewell, that was a lovely personal touch that meant a lot.Overall we had a lovely holiday and would love to return.More

More or less for the price you pay
Well, I would rate the hotel higher if they provide 20% lower prices.
In general the hotel is good – close to a fine, low-crowded sandy beach. Also it is 20 min walking to the center of Aiya-Napa. Famous (and crowded, watch your valuables!) Nissi beach is 10-15 min walk from the hotel. The rooms are clean, bathrooms are a bit outdated and need renovation, I think. Sea-view from 5-th floor rooms is great. If you are on a Half-board option I would recommend going to “House on the beach restaurant” for lunch, as they offer better dishes than the hotel. Wi-Fi is free for hotel residents and works perfectly (including Skype video calls). Don’t hesitate to try green oranges at the dinner – they are very tasty inside :) The hotel stuff is helpful, speaks English and ready to give you an advice. If you go outside of the hotel, turn left on the main street and you would come to a bus stop. From this bus stop you can go by bus to Waterpark (101, 102 bus - EUR 1.5). Waterpark price is EUR 35 full-day, no half-day-price is available. Also from the bus stop you can go to Larnaka (EUR 4.5). After spending 1-3 hours in Larnaka you can go to Nicosia (also about EUR 4) and in the evening you go back directly to Aiya-Napa by bus from central station of Nicosia.More

So good we've booked again
I agree with the previous reviewer about the helpful and friendly staff. I recognise the names mentioned and look forward to meeting them all again when we return in a few weeks. We stayed there from May 29th until June 9th 2013 and the weather, as we expected, was fabulous. The water was warm and clear and the bay delightful. The beach really is as close as the photos show and there are plenty of sunbeds there which cost 7.50 euros a day (2 sunbeds & one parasol). Of course, one can stay around the hotel pool for free, but space is a little limited and the prime sunbeds are always taken VERY early in the morning, which is true of EVERY resort we've EVER been to. Breakfast and dinner is of good quality and offers the usual sort of holiday choices.. some a little strange to British tastes, but there's always roast or grilled meats and plenty of salads. Unusually for overseas, I find, there's a cheese board and often with English cheese, which makes a change. But the star of the food show MUST be the lunches at the pool side. Try the grilled swordfish, I recommend it. Roll on September :-)More
