This hotel certainly has location on its side. It gets plus points for its pool, too.
This hotel looks out over Coral Bay – you can be on the sandy beach in about 5 minutes. It’s less than half that to a good selection of shops and restaurants.
There’s a big pool with a swim-up bar, a buffet restaurant for mealtimes, and an entertainment line-up that spans sports to live music. Meanwhile, kids rate the pirate ship playground.

Pleasantly surprised considering the reviews. Very nice stay
My wife, my 18 month old daughter and I stayed at this hotel last week as we were attending a wedding nearby. We had read some of the reviews on here before hand and were getting concerned that we were in for a bad stay. However, from the start we were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the hotel appeared clean and pleasant. Initially we did have a problem in that our room did not have a cot in it (as booked) but after I spoke to the lady at the front desk, she brought one up within 20 minutes and was very apologetic that it had not already been brought to the room in advance. The room was clean and adequately equipped. Air conditioning worked perfectly. We had a balcony with a sea view and the only downside is that the eveningâs entertainment was pretty much underneath and so music was very loud until about midnight (closing the balcony doors did muffle it a bit). However, it did not bother our little girl one bit and she still slept soundly and it didn't really bother us either. We would just sit on the balcony and listen with a couple of drinks so it was fine. I would say that it may bother some people/families who have children who find it hard to sleep unless the room is very quiet. The food was good. It was buffet style at breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food was hot and tasty. I would say that if we had stayed longer than a week then the food may have become a bit boring but it was perfectly adequate to meet our needs and the needs of our daughter (who had gone off her food due to the heat anyway). There is plenty of choice in the buffet and my wife and I filled our plates several times. I would say the desserts left a little to be desired though. It seemed to be the same on offer every single night and ALOT of coloured jelly which is fine for children but my wife and I weren't that keen. The restaurant staff were amazing-could not do enough for us. The bar staff were definitely not shy with the alcohol. I mainly drunk rum and coke but the cocktails were really good. However, the rose wine was undrinkable; like cleaning fluid. The red was much much better. They also did some lovely mocktails for the children and my daughter loved having a âTom and Jerryâ. Ice cream was also on tap. The bar staff were friendly, apart from one who comes across as a bit abrupt and NEVER smiles. I think she was won over a little by our little girl waving at her constantly as she did utter a few friendly words to us in the end. There is a play park at the hotel with swings and slides etc. which our little girl loved and there is a baby pool too which was perfect for her as it was not deep at all. She was able to stand up in it and we consider her to be a small 18 month old. The hotel is perfectly situated near the bars on the âstripâ and there is a wonderful bar opposite called âBlazing Saddlesâ who are incredibly child friendly. They couldn't do enough to entertain our daughter and even gave her some crayons and a colouring pad. The staff there were fab. There is also a supermarket about a minute up the road that is very well stocked and stocks baby products like nappies and wet wipes. The hotel is also walking distance from the beach. Took us about 10 mins to walk there-albeit slowly as it was very hot. A couple of comments- wifi was 30 euros and was barely usable in the room although did work better in the lobby and by the pool. You do not get a kettle/tea/coffee facilities in the room. There is a safe and a mini fridge in the room but there is a surcharge for using these. Also please note-the beds are very hard! But I think this is the case in every hotel in the area as the bride and groom were staying in the Coral Bay Beach resort just up the road and they said that their beds were also incredibly hard and that is a 5* luxury hotel. I would suggest getting a hire car to see the area. We did and went on day trips out to see the Tomb of the Kings, Pathos Zoo, went up to the mountains etc. I think we would have been incredibly bored if we had not had the hire car as apart from drinking and sunbathing, there isn't that much to do within walking distance of the hotel. All in all, I would say this was a lovely hotel and we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend but would again say that it could be a bit boring for kids (for you too if you donât like spending all day sunbathing) unless you have a hire car to get out and about. But maybe that's more a critique of the area than the hotel.More
Poor food, awful drinks
Stayed for 1 week in April 2015. The area is not too bad, the bays are good for swimming etc. Coral bay has a few shops & restaurants, would recommend the Rio Grande Mexican for food & drinks. Avoid the island coach tour unless you are keen on churches. Buses to Paphos are frequent & cheap, use a rover ticket for 5 euro's to visit the market & historical areas. As for the hotel, the rooms are OK but hot, TV is poor. The pool is OK but a bit small. The activities were of little interest but might suit some. Evening entertainment is very loud & go's on very late. Avoid sea facing rooms if you want peaceful evenings. The staff are generally friendly & helpful but avoid Olga at the bar if you can. The drinks are all awful, nothing to recommend except buy your own outside, then AI drinks are the worst I've ever had, all of them. The food was generally bland & boring, chips & veg at every lunch & dinner. The theme nights were a waste of effort. Mexican night consisted of some meat labeled Fajita but nothing else. Asian night was the blandest Korma possible. They should just stick to Cypriot food, their Moussaka was quite good. All In all, not a hotel I could recommend to anyone. we certainly won't go back. There are plenty of better AI deals around at hotels that do serve good food & drink at the same price.More
