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 live music. The hotel’s getting a new block for 2016, which will debut swim-up rooms, a spa and a new à la carte eatery.
Open for international, British and local cuisine, with plenty of vegetarian food options too. There are chefs making fresh pancakes and omelettes on cooking stations in the morning and buffet meals in the evening. There is a dress code here, gentlemen are asked to wear long trousers for evening meals.
The bar has a casual relaxed atmosphere about it. There's chilled music playing, a cool breeze blowing from the air-con and plenty of comfortable seating for you to get comfy on to choose your desired drink or snacks.
These superior twin rooms are designed with a bright and airy feel. You’ll have 1 extra bed in the bedroom. Outside there’s a balcony overlooking the sea. Plus air-conditioning is available from May to October.
This was our second visit to this hotel, and we were not disappointed. As per previous reviews quoted the staff at this hotel are the major asset. The only things which are the negatives are the lack of sunbeds (bearing in mind we were there in off peak season), the WIFI is really poor, and charging â¬4 per day for tea making facilities in the room is a little excessive. Other than these little niggles, the hotel is great value for money.
We were given a free room upgrade on arrival which was a nice touch and was very generous.
I cannot comment on the food as we ate out every day.
Will we be back? Most definitely!More
We visited this hotel in May 2016 when the hotel had only been open for a matter of weeks. When we arrived, we were shown into a clean and well presented room.
We stayed for one week and did plenty of relaxing and eating. Food is of a good standard and eating out is always an option as we went half board.
The entertainment lets this place down, with only singers in the evening (till 11:00pm) available.
Overall, it was an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
P.s make sure you go and get your sun-bed early, lots are taken with just towels in the morning.
Very pleasant - but could easily do better
Stayed here during the 1st week in May 2016 and was very impressed with the hotel's location and modern styling.
Having arrived late at night, was offered hot drinks and cake by Peter, the Australian guy who runs the night reception desk (excuse me for pointing).
Lovely rooms, and in keeping with the rest of the hotel, everything was spotless, although I was alarmed at the placing of ashtrays in the room, the hotel giving the green light to smokers spoiling the room for future users. Those who prefer taking baths to showers should be aware that the hotel offers no rooms fitted with baths. Whilst on the subject of the rooms, I must say that putting a 20 euro & 10 euro weekly charge to use the fridge and safe respectively already in the room smacks of small-minded profiteering. Any hotel of this standard should be supplying a working fridge topped up on a daily basis with fresh water bottles. Although WiFi was detected in the rooms, it was never possible to access the Internet as the signal was too weak to do something as strenuous as open a web page.
Overall, I was impressed with the quality of food on offer. Although the main restaurant had the feel of a department store cafeteria (very airy and not very intimate atmosphere with a constant background noise of chairs scraping along a tiled floor) the buffet style breakfast and dinners offered a good choice, and I was never stuck to find something I liked. Perhaps if a choice of soups was offered, it would be useful as I prefer the likes of tomato, chicken and minestrone to the fancier types offered such as broccoli and Stilton, cauliflower and pumpkin soups. The a la carte menu with table service was very good, although I did get caught one day being served chicken wings which were raw inside. Interestingly the restaurant operates a dress code for men insisting upon long trousers at dinner, yet sees no problem with the same men wearing vest tops and (often back to front) baseball caps to dinner, when other guests have clearly made an effort. Women often appeared in little more than beachwear. So have a dress code, but make it stricter than just men's trousers.
The AI tariff offered an amazing array of cocktails, both at the pool and cocktail bars. Kiki at the pool bar is very friendly and efficient, and there is no need to stand at the bar in the cocktail lounge as waiting staff take your orders. The bar area is adorned with several large TVs, which show virtually nothing other than African and Middle Eastern football matches.
To summarise, the hotel does the big things well, but really needs to get a grip on those little niggles which can easily turn into grievances. I would advise them to get the WiFi sorted, drop the petty charges, introduce a smoking ban in all enclosed spaces and relax the beach towel change restrictions which presently only permit changes on Mondays and Thursdays.
If you are of a sensitive disposition, be warned that there is a large contingent of young Russian guests, and their manners, demeanour and conduct might be considered as offensive by the more mature and genteel British traveller.
Other guests seem fair game to be shoved out the way in a queue by shouty Muscovites and their countrymen. Whether the hotel is responsible for these antics is open to question, but they do leave themselves vulnerable by marketing themselves to Russian operators, whereas an exclusive Western European clientele would enhance the holiday experience.
I feel the hotel is not quite a four-star rating, but it would be churlish to award just three stars, so four it is.
This holiday was great,people were lovely and staff couldn't do enough for u .The food was fantastic and very clean the staff work so hard to make people enjoy there stay was so good going back July can't wait ð to go back for another enjoyable stay.More
