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.

Wouldn't go back if you paid me

This hotel was meant to be a four-star premium hotel and I don't know how. When you used to going to a four-star or five star hotel you have certain expectations I do not feel that this hotel live up to any of them I don't understand how you can have sun loungers around a pole that do not have any form of cushioning where again around the pole your treated like a child and you're not allowed to take ceramic cups and plates to the pole side The food was a joke there was hardly any choice for breakfast and dinner which were both buffets that lunch was a sit down from a menu it didn't make sense Choice of food was minimal for both breakfast and dinner lunch you have more choice we bought this is an all-inclusive package and when we go all-inclusive we do not feel the need to leave the complex but this time we do it wouldn't go back if you paid me If you want to know why it's 4star is coz it has gym and sauna that's what my rep told me what a jokeMore

Jon B,

Nice little complex

We read the reviews before we left so had an idea of what to expect. It is advertised as a 4* but the rooms are very basic and the entertainment is poor, although Chelsea did her best with the facilities available. The food was good, especially lunch, although there wasn't a massive choice for breakfast and dinner but it was probably difficult catering for small numbers as the hotel wasn't very busy. Everyone has a different experience but we enjoyed our stay and didn't have any problems. The hotel is in a very good location, half way between Ayia Napa and Nissi beach, but I would say it was only a 3*More

Very impressed

We went to this hotel for a late (October 11th for a week ) break after a stressful couple of months.having read the reviews after we booked I was concerned but I could not find much to complain about the food was good plenty of choice and freshly cooked. The all inclusive drink was ok but the soft drink was limited I only drink duet tonic and Pepsi which they didn't have, though they did buy some normal tonic which was nice of them just a bottle don't last long between 2 lol ! The apartments are a bit dated but plenty of space and the ladies keep them spotlessly clean nothing was too much trouble I asked for an extra blanket as it was going off colder at night and the lady rushed off immediately to fetch a lovely fleesey blanket to cover the whole bed. The entertainment is lovely for the kids but only quizzes or bingo for the adults after that. The pool area was beautiful the water was cold tho I did venture in a couple of times and my friend and I enjoyed the jacuzzi every day . We were a little unlucky with the weather 2 early evening thunderstorms and 2 other cold days but hey ho we can't fix that we made the most of it the bus service is good and only 1.5 euro wherever you go . We went to ayia nappa which was nice and is being improved but we went back to see fig tree bay which was where we had stayed before and was disappointed to see how run down it had become and that the cafe that was on the beach has been pushed up the top by the capo bay hotel which kind of spoilt our memories but other than that over all Cyprus is obviously finding life hard but is trying to make the most of it it was coming near to the end of their season so lots of shops were not restocking things like booze and fags but that didn't affect us really. I don't think I will return to Cyprus but it was a nice break just what we needed the staff could not be faulted all happy to help and very friendly sun beds were plentiful 😀😀More

Lynn M,

Very disappointed!!

We returned from the Tasia Maris Garden a week ago following a holiday for our friends 25th wedding anniversary celebrations. This complex is advertised by First Choice as a Premier resort and rated 4T by Thomson/First Choice!! However this is totally inaccurate. The apartments are very dated, with very very uncomfortable sofa beds for the 2nd and 3rd adults sharing the apartments, even though full price is paid for full occupancy. There is enough storage space in the bedroom, however for the rest of the guests, well they had to resort to using the kitchen drawers and cupboards for storage. Although the resort is rated Premier, apart from the kids club for a few hours a day there is not much else available to keep families entertained. First Choice advertise the hotel as having live entertainment this is a joke!! During our stay there was one evening of so called entertainment which consisted of a magician who worked in the local supermarket and to say he was poor is an understatement. The TV was left on and placed on mute and there was some very dated music playing in the background or Karaoke, with Thomas, (who is fab), the night receptionist entertaining us on other nights. The daytime entertainment was non existent, however, Chelsea the entertainment rep is fighting a losing battle as she has to try single handed with no budget to keep people entertained. However, it was very evident how disillusioned she is with her job!! The staff, cleaners, waiters and bar staff are all lovely and really make you feel welcome. The food at breakfast and lunch along with snack time are fine but the evening menu is repetitive, lukewarm, and some items like cheeses and cold meats are put out night after night. We had a very poor experience with the First Choice Rep during our stay, along with many other parties, and became very frustrated ending in our group swapping hotels. The surrounding beaches are fab, the hotel is not far from the main entertainment centre of Aiya Napa, and thankfully as a group of 12 people we had a great time as we made our own entertainment, no thanks to First Choice or the Tasia Maris gardens.More

lisa r,

Had a really good autumn holiday here

All we wanted was a reasonably cheap autumn sun holiday. After being to Tunisia and Sharm El Sheik in the past couple of years and wanting somewhere new we decided on Cyprus. Finding Tasia Maris Gardens on FirstChoice at a very reasonable £420pp for 7 days all inclusive we were not expecting great things. Firstly, we thought Ayia Napa might be a bit cheap and tacky given the teen binge drinking reputation - in October we saw none of this, the place was really quite and friendly, a lot of the clubs are closed and the ones that are open were quiet. Temperature was still 30c every day, only a couple had thundery showers but they were over within an hour or two. Arriving at the hotel we were dropped at the side so entry was a little confusing being placed straight into the pool area but reception was easy enough to find. We were given an apartment on the second floor with a pool view which was very spacious - two sofa beds, dining table, kitchenette, separate bedroom and bathroom. While basic, it was a lot better than expected. Some highlights: The beds are pretty firm. There is only aircon in the bedroom unless you want to pay extra for the living area. The safety deposit box is extra charge (it's in the room with the keypad taken off). Beach/Pool towels are not available, all the shops sell very cheap towels but don't expect them to get you dry! There was no WiFi available in our room and the one in the bar area was almost unusably slow. Excellent location for walking into town (20 mins) Excellent beach (Sandy Bay) a few minutes walk away (sunbeds, parasols @ €2.50 each) where you can see lots of tropical fish if you get yourself a snorkel. Supermarket and other shops over the road. Food pretty poor - we ate at the hotel a few times but got much better quality in the restaurants around town. Bars served decent cocktails, spirits and beer Entertainment was good for a night or two but seemed quite repetitive (disco, bingo, quiz, karaoke) Pool quite chilly - about the same as the sea at Sandy Bay. Road outside can be quite busy, particularly with car horns if you're near the front of the hotel. Staff were very good, sometimes seemed a little aloof but always efficient and courteous. Room cleaned well every day. Overall we really liked this hotel - great location, good staff, comfortable room. I would probably rather bed and breakfast as the food wasn't that good and take a decent beach towel but other than that we had a great time.More
