Tasia Maris Gardens  


A great-looking pool and a sandy beach on standby make these apartments a sure-fire hit.

Beach lovers get a great deal at these apartments. There’s a sandy one just a few minutes’ walk away and it comes with bars and restaurants. Plus Ayia Napa and Nissi Beach are both about 15 to 20 minutes away on foot.

The main focus is the pool – a curvy number with a separate whirlpool bath and kids’ pool. Food-wise, there’s a buffet restaurant and waiter-service lunch. Meanwhile, the entertainment includes karaoke and parrot shows.

The whole truth is not the truth

So as the last comment is mostly lies i thought i would put a comment on here my self ... The entertainment Chelsea the essex girl done a fantastic job yes she has very limited budget but this was not her fault, in what she was given she tryed her best she did everything on her notice board but again this is not her fault if people didnt want to participate, her job is extremly hard especially when she is expected to do everything all by her self! Chelsea ignore the sarcy comments your a real live wire and you certainly kept us and im pretty sure everyone else entertained, you should be proud girl!!! The Food The food was good but nothing more than that, not extremely alot to choose from but just aswell we was only there for a week can become a little repetitive. The Accomadation Me and my partner did not have any problems with our stay the apartments are very cosy made us feel very much at home but there is just one thing you have to pay for air con in the front room i dont think this is acceptable as we payed alot already to stay here... Shout out to our cleaner lady (dont know her name) she done an exceptional job cleaning our room changing everything every day even when its not needed :) Special mention to Lakis, Stellios, Julie, Georgie, and of course Chelsea. We will be back again.More

Christopher J,

The truth the whole truth and nothing but!

Stayed at this hotel 16-31 August 2014. you have read some of the reviews on here, take them with a pinch of salt. Having just got back from this hotel i was surprised and disappointed with it. Lets start with good, The staff. All the staff ( bar one Maria) will always go that extra mile for you, politeness and friendliness is second nature to them ( take note Maria on reception). The Food. Breackfast starts at 7 till 10, snacks from the pool bar 10:45 till 11:45, lunch from 12:00 till 3:00, pool bar snacks 3:00 till 6:00 then Dinner from 7:00 untill 9:00. The food was very good for a 3 star hotel witch this is ( but first choice give it 4).Breakfast was buffet style, cereals full English or fruit. Some days the cook would be out front cooking omelette , waffles pancakes ect. all snacks can be picked out of a menu. Dinner was also a buffet. The roast beef on a Monday is a melt in your mouth experience you'll enjoy. As for the rest of the food it all gets a bit same old same old after a while. Pizza, chips and chicken nuggets are on every day plus plenty of other stuff i.e salad and a few greens. Going back to the pizza , if orded off the morning snack menu. You will get last night's pizza with a bit extra on top covered with a thin slice of cheese then microwaved. At dinner in the food goes out on the buffet at 6 and sits there unil 7 when dinner starts. Overall the food was pretty good if you don't mind left overs from last nights dinner cobbled into something else. The dinning area inside had air con but it was never switched on (money?)so got very hot , opening the sliding doors helps a little bit. 7 out of 10.( extra points for the beef). The Rooms. Larger than expected as they used to be self catering. Layed out like detached houses surrounding the pool,( those are to be avoided) split in half the ground floor being the larger. The benefits of the of the ground floor space means extra room for unwanted guests, ants are a big problem with ground floor rooms. Air conditioning in the bedroom is free but lounge/bedroom they charge €6 a day. Should be free if used as a bedroom in my opinion. Cleaned daily and look a little bit dated. 7 out of 10. The Pool. Layed out like a lazy river, makes a change from the usual rectangular pool. It gets cleaned once a year if lucky. No one ever saw it done while we stayed. A few children got ear infections from the pool water.so beware. The sunbed area got a light hose down once a week. So anything spilt on the floor stayed until the next weekly sprinkle of water. Plenty of sunbeds to go around,but the early bird gets the prime spot. 5 out of 10. The Entertainment. Daytime would be splash bingo or darts( falling to bits) provided by legend in her own mind Chelsea. Who says thats all she can do because she has a small budget. Must be €5 a month! Lots of other things posted on the notice board but she never did them. She appears midday and disappears for a couple of hours at a time during the rest of the day. Night time you get bingo or karaoke, the later mainly being taken over by Thomas the night porter. On the odd night you get a parrot show who only make money on the photos they sell after the show €10 photo. Mr magic who works across the road in best buy.so you can imagine the standard of tricks. This was a big let down for us,especially when you can hear the shows going on day and night from the sister hotel right next door. Chelsea time to step up your game instead of turning up dressed like your on it !!!! Stop moaning to us about the lack of budget ( ????) to cover up your lack of imagination. Try doing all of the things posted on the notice board!!! 3 out of 10. Thr Kids club. Run by only 2 staff with 16 places so get in early or miss out. Afternoon session is exactly the same as the morning one. Done in a fully air conditioned room. 6 out of 10. The First Choice Rep. Sam the first choice rep does an great job always friendly and available. You would se him wondering round the pool with his guitar sing or sat at his desk in reception. 9 out of 10. This could be a fantastic family hotel, it just needs a bit of money spending on it. And a manager that cares about it rather than strolling in moaning at the staff (on €2 anhour). Then disappearing to the sister hotel next door.the place looks and feels like it's run on a shoe string budget. Overall 6 out of 10. (Money spent it could make 9). Take note first choice this is a 3 star hotel and always will be unless time and money is spent on it . Giving it a 4 star premium family rating in your brochure miss represents the truth!!!! More

David B,

Not "first choice"

Arrived at resort around 10pm after a long journey it was shame no provisions were made for snacks. Rooms very hot especially those above the restaurant/kitchen area and no air conditioning provided in the lounge unless willing to pay an extra €6 per night per room. Entertainment was sparse leaving only one person to entertain at the hotel usually during the day taking the form of farts and a paper quiz. The evening entertainment was virtually non-existent. The bar area opened onto a very busy road and made watching the children a real task, not a relaxing atmosphere. Hotels rooms were dated but kept very clean by the maids being serviced daily and the good was limited in choice but in my opinion good quality. The small niggles such as large parties of 4+ not allowed to have an evening meal together outside, only one scoop of ice cream at a time( hotel policy) and having to pay extra for AC unfortunately tarnished the holiday. Back to Thomas cool next year More

A not quite "First Choice","All Inclusive"

Went here with "First Choice" on the "All Inclusive" for 7 nights from 13th August 2014. This was a late booking, with "Kids Club" and "All Inclusive" as major factors in choice. We were a party of 7, being 2xGrandparents, 3 Grandchildren (2x14yrs., 1x5yrs) and their 2 parents. Found the rooms clean and functional, for the first 4 night we had rooms in the main block over the kitchens which was very hot and the A/C had to work hard to get the temperature bearable, the bathroom never was. Having paid the same price for all persons thought it not right to charge the extra to have A/C for those having to use the lounges as a bedroom, but that's their policy!! For our last 3 nights we were moved to detached 2 storey blocks which were much more comfortable. Our 5yr old enjoyed the "Kids Club" where the staff did a good job entertaining him. We all made good use of the "All Inclusive" variety of cold drinks and ice cream to keep hydrated in the 34C+ heat. The pool was clean and a comfortable temperature to spend lots of time in. No Lifeguard but for about 80% the max. depth 1.5m and no more than 2m from the side. The other 20% was sloping with non-slip surface underfoot. A separate splash pool for small children and Jacuzzi for older people. Total capacity was I think about 50 apartments and there seemed no problem with sun beds. We all found the food for three meals a day a fair choice for most tastes, breakfast and dinner buffet style and lunch waiter service. All very clean tables and utensils, polite, efficient and attentive staff if not always smiley. Entertainment other than for "Kids Club" was a sole provider for all day with very limited resources who tried hard with what she had. The evening entertainers had limited room in the bar, but Mr Magic the magician and the "Parrot" Show etc. seemed to entertain the younger children o.k., otherwise the music played was a bit raucous and intrusive trying to have a conversation. Although it is on the main road to Ayia Napa proper, with various shops, restaurants, hire shops for cars / quad bikes etc., bars in both directions, it only really became apparent in the evening after dinner when using the bar terrace which fronted it. Everything to do with the roads is similar to U.K., drive on the left and use "Zebra Crossings", with maybe less pot-holes?!! The WI-FI was pretty much limited to the bar area, and not very fast. The beach with various water sports activities was 5-10 mns. walk around the block either way to the rear of the hotel. Our fellow holidaymakers were Families and most amicable and generally we enjoyed our stay.More
