Hotel clean and bright although decoration not new.
Although we have since found out that the hotel was the first to be built in the area, after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, and the UN buffer zone being established making Famagusta a ghost town. It was built originally as two blocks then the central section only being added around 10 years ago. Also we have found lot's of holidaymakers appear to return regularly year after year.
Is taken in the breakfast dining room, good selection of food and drinks from Cereals, fried bacon ,eggs, potatoes, scrambled and boiled eggs too. Good selection of cold meats and cheese, fruit breads and cakes. Ground Coffee(from a machine), chocolate, tea and juices.
Is served in the beach front Taverna,which as the evening progresses becomes a romantic setting especially when the moon rises over the small bay it overlooks.
There is a nice selection of starters, salads, meats, and fish with vegetarian alternatives. There is plenty of sweets and fruit available and real custard with the apple crumble.
Our Twin bedded ground floor room with en-suite cleaned daily. Basic, clean but tired, but this part of the hotel is yet to be re-furbished.
A Fridge is an extra €20 a week and is very useful, a safety deposit box €12 per week.
Not as big as it looks on Google Earth, but warmer than the sea and that was warm (bottom temperature when diving 24°and higher at 12 metres). No lifeguard on duty at anytime. The animation team do daily Aquarobics and they get in the pool too (unlike in Sharm).
There is a four person crew employed by the hotel
They do a morning and afternoon program of games, then often in the evening put on a show when there is not an outside entertainer booked
Locally a number of shops and bars all vying for custom but not as brashly as Protaras, you are occasionally greeted but usually only by a hello. For those not on half board or more there are good offers and menus available of varying cuisine's although English and Cypriot prevail.
Kokos bar - 2 for 1 drink offers and free WiFi
Knights bar - food offers
The Windmill for loud music also free WiFi
Brannigan's for cheap cocktail's and WiFi
Koufaris for a Meze
Taba dive school -next to hotel so discounts hotel guests

... and worked well, has a timer on it so will shut off after a while - ideal as you get off to sleep with some air circulating.
Thur 2nd July - Got up at 7:30am, tea and watch the world from the patio. Checked out the salad crops, cucumbers taking over the place and tomatoes now beginning to ripen. All plants watered time for some cornflakes and a coffee. Going to be a hot one today,its only 8:30am but the sun is very hot. Bit of on line admin to do today to ...
... went to bed!!!! All in a days' work.
Now I am in a place that is so different to where I have been for the last few days. It’s normal. You can go to a café and have a beer, wear shorts and a singlet, the temperature is a nice 30 degrees and the people are normal and very relaxed ( Greek style living). The only thing the same are the costs. No backpacker places so you are forced into a hotel which is always more expensive and ...
... thro a number of dusty villages past Ercan airport. A quick pit stop in Erolku supermarket to pick up some candle holders Sarah had spotted a few weeks ago and a couple of other items to replenish the food cupboard. Home by 4:30pm for a nice cup of tea and a relax. Sarah and John prepared tonights chilli supper whilst our guests went off for a late afternoon stroll. Showered and changed we retired to the back patio to continue ...
... 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 ...
spotless and fragrant. The management is lucky to have ladies like Nandia
(Bulgarian) from the housekeeping. Energetic, hardworking and efficient. If you
are lucky to meet her you will also have the same feeling. She would make my
day with her good word and smile.
The bed was comfortable (single attached) and I had a
good night sleep throughout the stay. Tea/Coffee facilities, a Mini bar & a
Safe are provided upon request ...
