The Hotel Tasia Maris’ standout features include a close-to-it-all location and a varied entertainment line-up.
This hotel’s location is a big draw. Walk for a minute or so through the grounds and you’ll come to a sandy beach. A 15-minute wander, meanwhile, takes you to the shops, restaurants and bars of Nissi Beach.
This place is geared towards couples. Days are all about relaxing by the hotel’s lagoon-like pool. Evenings, on the other hand, are taken over by gala dinners and professional shows.

Saga goes Gold!
If you are under 30 the do not go to this hotel it is geared up for the over 50's, ave age 60+ This was fine for us (in 40's) as we like a quite holiday and not having kids around 1st week in July was great, the best thing about the hotel! Good points 1.Location, short walk to beach and shops. 2.No kids 3.Great entertainment which we don't usual bother with but Barry was great at organising events, although I don't think the pool was really big enough for water polo etc 4. loads of sunbeds never a problem to get one any time of the day 5. free wifi 6. quite hotel no loud music or yobs jumping in pool etc 7.Marina provide fantastic service at pool bar 8. bedroom very clean had refurbished room 9. Small hotel Areas that need working on! 1. Room stank of smoke every time we went in asked and was told all room are smoking rooms! Thomsons really need to insist on all rooms being non smoking these days! 2. As it was a small hotel food choice was very limited! Often salty. 3. No snacks on All inclusive couldn't get something like a single slice of pizza or a piece of cake to keep you going as with other hotels could only order a full meal which didn't always want! 4. only allowed one key per room which is crazy caused problems when we wanted to do different things eg football on till 2am and I wanted to go to bed & other half wanted to watch football!! 5. Thomsons need to make it clear this hotel is not suitable for under 30's 6. Quite a lot of Russians! 7. Hotel is not 4* more like 3* and not Gold standard! 8. shouldn't have to pay for fridge & kettle when on All inclusive! 9. Can only change pool towels twice a week 10. Ayia Napa its self is awful Over all the holiday was made by a small selection of other guests to were very friendly!More

Good Holiday spoiled by little things.
We visited this hotel on the recommendation of our companions who had stayed here before. The hotel is great, with a lovely pool, terrific beach only two minutes walk away, very good food and really friendly and helpfully staff and overall we had a great holiday. Why though has "All inclusive" become less and less inclusive over the years. We were advised not to drink the tap water but buy bottled from the nearby supermarket. Bad enough that it was not provided for free as normal, but when we went to put the water in the fridge we found we had to pay E35.00 to get the fridge working on top of another E35 for the safe. The "All Inclusive" drinks stopped at 11.30 and the ladies afternoon ice-cream was extra as well. Marina in the pool bar is a diamond. I believe that this hotel is to be upgraded to "Platinum" next year and will 60% Russian occupancy. Draw your own conclusions.More

Thomsons slipping standards
This was our 3rd year running that we had stayed at the Tasia Maris. The hotel staff were, as always fantastic. The food standards at dinner had slipped a bit, but still better than most. No complaints at all about the Tasia staff.......wish we could say the same about the Thomson reps/ entertainment team.......I say entertainment loosely! On our previous 2 visits, the entertainment girls Sarah & Sam were brilliant, always fun & encouraging involvement, without being pushy. This year they have a young Geordie girl called Lauren, who seemed to be on a different planet most of the time, although it was entertaining listening to her trying to read her sheets..............sorry that should have been embarrassing, as she could hardly read or understand what she was reading out! During the 'pool games' she showed no interest in joining in & seemed to be in a world of her own. The male rep (Barry) was only slightly better, and couldn't stop gushing over any male 'entertainer' that appeared on the evening 'entertainment' .. if that's what you could call it. All in all its a big well done once again to the Tasia Maris, but a big 'could do better' to Thomson holidays......Gold entertainment it certainly isn't!!!More

never go to this hotel again
have been to many gold hotels over past 15 years never had to complain about any thing but the tasia maris was not a gold standard if you have never been to a Thomson gold before you will have nothing to compare it with we went to this hotel june 14th my husband had food poisoning thee people finished up in hospital for one lady it was the second time in this hotel and second time in hospital with food poisoning they said they would never go to this hotel again. it was my birthday when I was on holiday I had cards from my family and a very special card from my grandson after being out of our room all day we went back about 5.30 to find my grandsons card was missing I reported this to the reception strait away they sent the house keeper up she looked round and pulled furniture out which we had already done the house keeper said she would ask the maid about it the next day I asked her she said she had not seen her I asked reception again to find out what had happened to my grand sons card . I later was told by the receptionist that the maid said she did not see it so were did it go a very large hand made card from my four year old grandson the reception or Thomson reps did not investigate the matter further so if you go to this hotel do not leave items lying around the card was very important to me as any mother or grandmother will tell you it spoilt my birthday we will still go to other gold hotels but will never do to this one again we always read the reviews of the hotels before we book we should have taken into account the bad ones you will read a review about a sandwich that was green this is true we were there at the same time as these people we agree with all they say please stay away from this hotel go to any gold hotel but this one john and lynn hirst from leedsMore

I visited Tasia Maris at the end of June 2014 for 2 weeks with my Step mother and sister and we shared a room. Let me say at the outset that we had a lovely holiday and we warmed to this small hotel in the idyllic location of Sandy Bay that was just a step away from a beautiful cove that boasted many facilities including an unusual ramp for wheelchair users to access the ocean. I have visited many Gold hotels by Thomson however and this one didnât quite hit the mark for me. A fundamental requirement of a hotel is to provide a comfortable bed, yet when 3 people share here, bearing in mind this is a solely adult hotel, and each person pays the same with no reduction for sharing, one bed is a camp bed. This particular camp bed had a wooden slatted base with a spongy mattress and was dwarfed by heavy wooden furniture stopping the user from getting up safely. A word at reception got an extra (spongy) mattress and the heavy furniture moved but we were told categorically that the camp bed would not be changed. This is totally different to the Gold hotel where we shared a room in Falesia, Portugal last year when, although Thomson stated a camp bed would be the third bed, a full sized single with comfortable mattress was provided automatically. With 2 of us over 60 and an 84 year old this definitely coloured our view of the helpfulness of the hotel. We had paid in advance for a sea view (stunning view of entire beach, sea and gardens of hotel) which meant we didnât have one of the larger refurbished rooms that faced the main road. These were beautiful, newly decorated in white modern style, people we met staying in them had chosen them after being in the sea view rooms on previous visits. They were quiet while sea view rooms had music from the poolside stage until midnight every night. The restaurant was small with a cafÃ© chic appearance. Food was good, we ate all we wanted and enjoyed it all though because of the size of the dining room the variety on offer was limited. It was very bright inside so we preferred to eat outside. We usually ate around 8.30 and the restaurant closed at 9.30. Staff started removing flowers and candles off the tables at 9pm when we were still eating which we felt rushed us eating. There was little or no ambience in the restaurant. One or two waiters were welcoming, notably Soniris and Metodi but I would struggle to name any more that smiled or made effort at pleasantries. We would have liked to have had bananas on the breakfast menu as we had to buy ours locally for every morning. Also we thought breakfast should be a quiet time and not have loud music. It wasnât easy to talk at any meal time due to the loud music. Reception was very efficient regardless of who was on duty, staff were always happy and called good morning or waved whenever we passed. Check in was the quickest I have ever experienced. Dave was on the night we arrived, a British man who always took time to chat. The pool area was lovely and a very helpful metal bar to help people who may have difficulty walk gradually into the shallow end was great for my step mum. Lots of loungers were available and no problem getting any. The pool bar hosted by the ever smiling, chatty and helpful Marina and her assistants was an oasis of calm and efficiency and, let it be said, fantastic cocktails !. The seating was great for those who wanted to have a drink sitting in the pool too. The Thomson entertainment team worked so hard. They were each and every one of them communicative, open, fun and sociable, absolutely brilliant. I have to single out Karen the local interest rep. I asked her some questions about family hotels and she took me on a tour of the hotel next door, even into rooms and introduced me to staff. Really over and above any expectations I had. One of the team took a session in aqua Tai Chi which was amazing. I was totally hooked. My sis tried the free Scuba diving trial and that was something she had always wanted to do. Panache the resident entertainment duo are so talented. They should be the headliners around the hotels in Cyprus. Such an extensive songbook, different styles of music. Everything they sang was wonderful and to top that they looked so attractive on stage. Outstanding duo. The other evening entertainment programme was ok. Monday and Friday were the best nights as they were the âfirstâ nights for most new guests. We saw two fab comics and Dueto a classical group who were really talented. A Shirley Bassey tribute act also appeared. The Thomson touring entertainment team put on mini musicals and shows and they were ok but after we saw one or two we preferred to go across the road to Florence bar for a change and have a cocktail for 2.50 euro. There was one game of bingo each night and lots of quizzes throughout the day and night. Plenty to keep guests occupied. In the area we went on three boat trips from Ayia Napa harbour. All three were great but bear in mind the sunset cruise advertised by Famagusta Napa boats (on Facebook) has ear-blasting club music for the entire 2.5 hour journey. The best trip for me was by the Big Red Bus (Dave and Ian, ex Royal Navy British guys, check out their website) , they offer two trips, Villages and Famagusta, we went to Famagusta via the British military base into occupied North Cyprus. We had about 2 hours within the walled town of Famagusta, so steeped in history and character with delightful shops and restaurants. Then the Big Red Bus took us to Palm Beach, a small area permitted for bathing dwarfed by the towering sky rise buildings in the area known as Varoshia, the ghost resort. Clear sea, possibility of spotting turtles, a unique and thrilling trip. The coast area offered a crazy paving walk either in the direction of Ayia Napa or opposite toward Nissi Beach. We did both early as it was very hot. We loved the House on the Beach restaurant with Dimitri the fantastic and funny waiter and amazing jacket potatoes, moussaka etc. Skip the sangria though it didnât seem very tasty. We also had some delicious pizzas to share at the magic Sandy Bay CafÃ© with its very friendly staff. Would I go back? Yes, mainly because of its wonderful location and having so much to do there, but would choose a road facing room and seriously negotiate for a proper single third bed if it was required.More
