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!!!
In August we stayed at the Faros for the second year.
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.
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.
