Historical Traveler Reviews Faros Hotel Ayia Napa
Loved the place
My husband and I arrived in this part of Cyprus and the Faros Hotel in April, directly from Athens-Greece. I meant to review the Faros hotel sooner - cause it is really worth it, but got really busy upon my return.
However, here it is: The weather was wonderful (warmer than in Athens) and our stay was made even more memorable by the staff and the hotel premises-amenities. The hotel is located right by the harbour and is just a two minute walk from the center of town. Faros Hotel has a great pool and we enjoyed long hours sunning ourselves by it. More importantly, we loved the fact that the hotel personnel always greeted us with a smile and were eager to assist us in any of our inquiries or needs without making us feel "crowded".
The quality of this hotel is something else. Very nice rooms, with magnificent landscape. The pool something special with jacuzzi in it. Very good staff. Top location, very close to the beach and in the centre
Good Hotel overall and the pool was the best place to cool off in the area.
Ayia Napa and Cyprus itself was expensive compared to the rest of Europes resorts.
Easy access to the beaches from the Hotel which is also convenient from the town allthough avoid any pub or restaurant which promises "Eastenders" & "Traditional Roast Dinners" etc. Good restaurants in the town especially Mexican ones surprisingly !
The tacky bars with the drinks offers and constant people harassing you up the hill to go in are to be avoided but the Faros Hotel is well away from that and is self-contained and good fun.
Great Hotel. We booked this 3 star hotel for the first time, after being to Ayia Napa 4-5 times in the past. This was certainly a great experience as the hotel is amazing. I could never imagine a 3 star hotel having such great swimming pool! It was a dream and we spend many hours there. The pool also has a Jacuzzi which provided for relaxing afternoons. The location of the hotel was also great the rooms were very good, the employees were helpful, the food was good and Ayia Napa was great as usual! I am certainly going back to this hotel and I would recommend it without hesitation.
We visited this hotel for the first time in October 2005 and we have already booked to go back in April next year. The swimming pool was amazing. The kids didn't want to go outside the hotel. Food was great and the staff very helpful. The area of the hotel is great as it is in a quiet area however only a few minutes walk from the center with all the bars and restaurants. Excellent place and quite cheap.
We absolutely love this hotel! This was our first time there and now we can't wait to go back again! Great location, excellent rooms with amazing views, delicious food and friendly staff. We strongly recommend it!!!
Great Place to Stay
In August we stayed at the Faros for the second year.
The location is perfect about ten minuted from the main square so far enough away but close enough to walk. It's also close to the newly developed harbour.
The rooms are clean and the free airconditioning is great.
The pool is the best I've experienced, large and clean with an in pool bar. There is always a fabulous breeze which is a clessing in August. Whenever we've headed to the beach we had straight back because it's just too hot anywhere else.
The snack bar is excellent both in terms of service and quality. We always eat out in the evening so I can't comment on the restaurant food but the do have theme nights three times a week which seemed good. (When you eat out you must try Clarabel and Sage in the resort.)
All in all great value for money and we'd definitely go back again.
Stayed at the Faros 15th July-31st July with my boyfriend. Rooms very clean and very cold which was a good thing. Pool amazing, by far 1 of the best we've ever stayed in. It was always clean. The staff were friendly enough. The food wasn't very good, limited choice and appeared to cater mainly for Germans (we went b&b luckily). If you pay for lunch tho the food is brilliant.
Only a few minutes walk to the nightlife, but far enough away if you dont want that every night. No entertainment in the hotel, apart from 1 night when we had a little old man playing a guitar. The nightlife is brill. Loads of restaurants, although i wouldn't recommend any chineses, not even the tempting looking one just left of the hotel. Very bland and very small portions! The indian half way up the hill is lovely though. I would recommend this hotel, although i wouldn't visit again any time soon.
Great place to decompress.....
I stayed there the last night before my trip back to the US. I needed some relaxation before I returned to work. The Garden suite I stayed in provided privacy and quiet and overlooked the amazing pool, where i spent the next day daydreaming. It was a great getaway, right at the marina. Friendly staff. It was a great discovery, and at a really good price!
The most amazing swimming pool and surroundings
The swimming pool is the highight. Big, beautiful, with pool bar in the pool! Also a big jacuzzi extention at the pool. I stayed at the garden bungalows and they were great value for money. This is a 3 star hotel but it felt like I stayed in at least a 4 star! The location is amzing. 2 minute walk to the harbor and 5 minute walk to where all the nightlife action is (I wouldn't want to be closer to that anyway).
Great experience. I will visit again.

... ago. A renovator’s paradise!!!!! ( But no renovators in sight.) And cafes with food half the price of the flashy ones on the sea front. An interesting place to wander.
For my friend Alastair. I found the Personality Pub. Met the owner, bought a beer and had a chat. I can assure you nothing has changed from when you were here 10 years ago, and nothing will for the next 10. He said to say "hi" and pass on his regards to you ...
... Our decent from fantasy lands us in the most picturesque little port this side of the Amalfi. A medieval castle, seaside beer and the best meze on tour leaves us with no choice but to rate this the highlight.
With rest days in between touring, we got to log that relaxing time by the pool and have what I wanted for my 40th: a tranquil escape in an exotic place with the family. Thank you again Helen, Warwick and Despoina on the ground for making that ...
... down onto the central plain and then east. Weather warm and sunny. Just over an hour later we arrived at Gazimagusa and headed for the old town inside the ancient walls. A stroll, around the wall before then heading thro the windy streets in town, popping into the odd shop along the way. Stopped for freshly squeezed orange juice and a bit of a rest which was much needed. Old town explored we then took the 5 minute drive to ...
... with vendors selling local delicacies and all kinds of touristy products, but there are also competitions taking place, sailing races, local exhibitions of pottery, fireworks and much more.
Personally noise and crowded areas is not my piece of cake, but at least before flying back home I dropped by for a while just to get the feeling ...
... get cleaned while guests sunbathe.
In the afternoon a chocolate dainty morsel. If this is not pampering….then what?
BEACH: The Landa beach is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Just walk through the gardens, cross the road and get to the coast. The beach is considered one of the best in Ayia Napa and its crystal turquoise waters will amaze you. (Have in mind though that two beds & an umbrella will cost you €7.50).
