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.
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.
Twin room with limited sea view sleeps up to 3. With air-conditioning from 15th May, radio, walk-in showers, room service offering food until 21.30 and drinks until 24.00 and a laundry service. The third bed is a camp bed.
We stayed at the Tasia Maris for a week in early October 2014. My wife and I are in our 50's but it would be fair to say we felt young to a lot of the guests, most were 65+ and I estimate only 20% were under 30. This is not a negative though as the elder patrons proved that they certainly knew how to enjoy themselves. The Tasia Maris is ideally situated on the outskirts of Ayia Napa (approx 15-20 min walk from the noisier centre of town) and has a small fine sanded beach literally 100 yards at the rear. A larger and busier beach at Nissi beach is approx 10 mins walk away. The main road outside is well equipped with shops, eateries banks and supermarkets. The New York, right opposite the TM was very good and a friendly place for a drink and snack or meal. The TM pool is small but adequate and surrounded by gardens and plenty of sunbeds. The Thomson entertainment team were first class and provided daily activities, games and quizzes, which were there if needed but not intrusive if you just wanted peace and quiet. The food was excellent and a wide choice of good food was provided each meal time. We stayed half board but I would advise all inclusive. Our air conditioned room was comfy and well equipped and we benefited from a tremendous sea view...well worth paying the extra for. The staff at the TM from Reception, cleaners, waiters etc were all first class. The manager even joined in the games occasionally and personally said goodbye as we departed (a nice touch). Found the 20 euro charge to have the fridge switched on a little unusual, I would rather have had it included in the room charge but other than that the Tasia Maris was excellent and we are looking forward to visiting again.More

Superb staff and guests
It amazes me when people complain about having to "pay" for fridge, safe etc when it clearly states that they are available for hire in the brochure and on website. They are not free in other hotels but simply built into the prices you pay here you have the option to hire or not, end of gripe. This place is simply the best for friendliness from staff and guests alike, never have I been anywhere to beat it on that score. We had a fabulous holiday in September, entertainment was in the main good, Barry was a scream and Panache the resident duo the best we have seen there in the 6 previous visits. Food was once again plentiful and of great quality, enough choice to suit.The pool bar is a must and Marina is loved by everyone because of her nature. Yes it's changing in 2015 to Platinum, still no kids, and should improve the facilities if anything.More

Tasia Maris before and after. 2007 and 2014
My husband and I stayed at this hotel in 2007 and had a wonderful holiday from start to finish. The staff, and food plus entertainment were excellent and the room was overlooking the pool, with a lovely view of the sea.
How things have changed in 7 years ! We stayed there mid Sept 2014 for 2 weeks. We had a very shabby pokey dark room stuck in the corner , totally being overlooked by everyone. We had to keep our curtains closed all the time so as not to be seen ! The food was fair and very greasy, Although the dress code was adhered to at dinner..people dressed badly while eating in the restaurant area during the day. Old men in speedos next to you was offputting to say the least .
The management failed to stop roudy holiday makers ruining the enjoyment of the rest of us.
The Thomson Gold Hotel was 30% Russian, who were very rude to the staff and refused to queue each evening for the restaurant. Arrogant and rude doesn't even come close.
The management did nothing to make us feel welcome.
Four people, including me, came down with a very nasty stomach bug while at the hotel, this went on for 8 days in my case..again, no acknowledgement from management.
As for the staff, I cannot fault them. They were very attentive at meal times and evenings , always making sure you had a drink. George, Chrisho and Anna in particular. The Thompson team were brilliant, working endless hours every day and night, but unfortunately, this is their last year as the hotel will be Platinum next year,
Needless to say we will not be coming back to this hotel again.More
