Left Malta early afternoon for Dubai, with a stop in Larnaca. This was just a drop off and pick up stop. Passengers going on to Dubai weren't allowed off the plain. So I spent an hour watching round staff clean the plane and cabin staff complete security ...

I would call it the destination of young couples and party groups, tranquil during the day with its pretty harbour and monastery, coming alive at night as its hundreds of bars, clubs and restaurants open for business.
Between the clubs and karaoke bars, there are cobbled streets, harbor-side tavernas and a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Electra Holiday Village Ayia Napa
Had a lovely time at the Electra, went with my husband and two children aged 8 and 5. The food was gorgeous and plenty to choose from. Only downfall with the food was there wasn't much choice for the kids. The reps were brilliant with the kids, my two spent half the week following them around. The pool area was clean and no problem getting a bed as long as you got by the pool before 10. The rooms were clean and we had lovely sea view, I would say though that the rooms were more 3 star than 4 and watch out for the ants, they were all over the kitchen area and even the bathroom, which was annoying. Apart from that we had a fab holiday and are looking to go back next year.
Best holiday ever brill night life
i just arrived home from electra this morning and i cried...i love coming home from holidays but i arrived at birmingham airport and just thought...i DONT want to be here. Rooms are lovely foods great. reps go all out to entertain kids throughout the day. The main delight of my holiday were the bar and kitchen staff. They were amazing and ever so friendly i loved the holiday and although i have just got back i am looking to book there for august this year!!! oh ye and the weather was fab!! Night life is exceelent aiya napa is beautiful lit with lights and the 400 bars are an advantage!!
cyprus was stunning with lovely warm weather and the beach side location of the electra is perfect however my husband and I both agreed we picked the wrong hotel for us. we thought the electra was 4 star but we would say more like 2 star. our room was full of ants and the bedroom wall was black with mold and the fridge was held together with rust. the pool area was ok but the sun beds were full of holes. the electra does seem good for children and you will have a good holiday here as long as your not used to luxury accommodation.
My Wife and I (late 20s) signed up for an unnamed accomodation deal, so on landing in Cyprus my heart fell when we were told that we would be going to Agia Napa - I had heard all the horror stories. Waking up in the resort the next morning I was actually pleasantly surprised. Beaches absolutely beautiful, linked by carefully constructed pathways that enabled you to walk miles up and down the coast in either direction.
we are a young couple (22) and for what you pay for the electra it is a lovely hotel. we went self catering and the room was adequate for cooking breakfast but not much more.
the hotel was clean and the maid service good
was easy to get sun beds every day and none of that 6am run down to the pool!
snack bar offered nice lunch
we were very dissapointed with the resturants around the hotel, on the strip leading to main resort, although close (about 10 min walk) all offered the same tasteless slop mostly. 1 or 2 nice places in main resort.
but hotel well worth going to....
This is our 2nd time at the electra as a family,decided to go again as the kids loved it so much last time and it had everything they wanted.

I stayed self-catering at the Electra Holiday Village, with my friend, for 2 weeks in September 04. Overall, the complex is of a good quality, although we thought the rooms were a bit shabby, with stained bedsheets and hardly any crockery/cuttlery. The location isn't bad, and the beach to the front of the hotel is nice. However, as read in other reviews, it's difficult to swim/wade-out due to the rocks. It's about a 15 minute walk to Ayia Napa, with not much else close to the complex. We had a problem buying groceries because there aren't many supermarkets close-by, and those that are are extremely expensive. We hired a car and explored the island (and visited the water park nearby, which was excellent). Otherwise I think we would have been bored for a fortnight.
This complex is in a great location beside a beach, and about 1 mile from the town centre. I chose the all inclusive option which was quite a good standerd. I also chose a superior room which had a sea view. It is quite a new place so everything is in good order.
