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

... then as ordered went to find a small table top fan. Stormax our favourite furniture and household shop had the very thing....with a years guarantee......not something always available! Purchases done it was home by midday, cold orange juice and lemonade made and then checked on internet to track Sarahs flight to Athens.....it was just coming into land on time. She has a bit of a wait at the airport but has plenty of films and books downloaded to watch and while away ...
... Mycenaean Greeks, Phoenicians, Assyrians, Franks, Venetians, Ottomans and British). The sites include the church of St Lazarus. Kition (Larnaca’s previous name – 13th Century BC) was the second home of Jesus’ friend Lazarus and he lived here for 30 years. His tomb is under the sanctuary but it is empty!!!! Nice church built in the Byzantine era (9th century) but restored many times so now has a ...
... camp, where we lived during our second stint in Cyprus in the early 90s......yes we were very lucky. The married quarters and camp have long since been demolished but we picked our way around the roads and found the spot where our little house used to be. Again plenty of happy memories came flooding back. It was now time to head back home and we crossed back overto the north via the Beyamudu (Pergamos) crossing and wiggled our ...
... pate.......huge portion arrived and ladies were invited to sample as well. For the main course majority vote was for the roast of lamb or beef with roasties, mashed spud, yorkshire pudding and vegetables. John decided on the chicken jalfrezi with rice and chappati.Cost for the two courses was 25TL.....or £6.25p.....a real bargain. Ladies made their selection for pudding of apple pie with cream or ice cream all washed down with a beer and water. After a very pleasant couple of hours ...
... 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 ...
