We stayed in Larnaca, from there we drove to Nikosia, Famagusta, Kyrenia, Karpas-peninsula.
Especially in the southern part of Cyprus all the wonderful old houses were removed and new, ugly houses were built. In the northern part some old houses are still remaining.
Did not like Larnaca and Nikosia that much. Best part we saw of Cyprus was Karpas-peninsula (great nature, beaches ...
... by a glass of water. We enjoyed sipping on this as Maria explained that she was the youngest woman in the village (and in fact in the whole of Cyprus!) who still makes lace (she was probably about our age) and how it is a dying art. We ended our visit, buying a small table runner Maria had taken 6-8 weeks to embroider by hand and which the border had been done by her 84 year old mother. A great reminder of our pleasant encounter and our visit to Lefkara.

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
