... to meet! Can't believe we really are going to all these amazing places. Places where there are elephants and tiger ad bears (no lions as far as I know).
Plan is to go to Thailand, Vietnam. Cambodia and Burma. We have three months, so plan to take things at an easy pace. Will have to anyway, can't be doing with rushing around nowadays, we are retired you know.
Now I have ...
Walked for an hour from the hostel to the bus stop, fair hike. Met an American student studying in israel on the bus with the same flight in the morn. Had great info on traveling and volunteering in west Africa. Me and him both crashed at the airport until 5am check ...
... is present. He acknowledges us with a huge smile and wave from his seated position, one leg raised on a stool and walking stick permanently at hand. The old guy sleeps. He wakes. He sleeps again. He's got to be in his 80s. At the conclusion of Abi's pottery lesson, the old guy stands and shakes our hands and, with not a word of English spoken, he thanks us for attending. He has a photo taken with Abi and, to put it mildly, these people are a pleasure to meet ...
... The four star Grecian Sands Hotel has a very nice position on the beach, or try another nearby.
This area has lovely little coves as well as big beaches, as you can see in the photos.

... around. It was really impressive. My hastily taken pictures donīt do it justice, but it was very tranquil, beautiful, simple, and, well, impressive. Itīs an interesting story actually. Apparently the aunt of the prophet Mohammed fell off of her donkey and died there. They converted it into a holy site and I donīt know...maybe it serves as a warning to clumsy travelers like me?
Anyway, we made our way back to Annaīs house. A nice ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tasia Maris Beach Hotel Ayia Napa
No Kid heaven! we were on our honeymoon and we could not of picked a better hotel. The staff and fellow guests very friendly, the food was good, although we would of liked to of seen some cypriot/greek dishes occasionally as all food was very much catered to british tastes. Daytime activities available if you wanted to join in, but no pressure or harrasment if you dont! Evening entertainment variable, some very good, others not so good, but even the not so good was bearable.... location just on edge of small cove with nice beach. Rooms not huge but modern and immaculate, we had a sea view which was excellent.
I would highly recommend this hotel, we stayed half board for 10 days and can honestly say we hardly left the hotel. The food was excellent, the rooms clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The staff all friendly and helpful. I would love to go back here again.
I went on Holiday to Nissey Beach Cyprus on the 31st July and stayed at the following hotel for a week - Tasia Maris Hotel (Thompson Gold)- No kids allowed , i would recommend this hotel to everyone, they really make an effort when it comes to entertainment (for all ages- apart from kids) and also the rooms are nice and clean, staff very friendly, food GREAT- BUFFET-waiters- really efficient and friendly always at your beck and call. This hotel is right next to the beach which is great and 15 mins walk from Aiya Nappa Bars-and shops only minutes away also. Only downfall about Cyprus is that its quite expensive but apart from this i would strongly recommend it.
Fantastic holiday enjoyed by me, my husband, 15 and 11 year olds. Apartments first class, bed linen changed everyday by lovely maid.
Swimming Pool great, sun loungers available mostly but lots of reserving going on.
Beach just round corner - great
Lots of restaurants on the door step and only 20-30 minute walk to centre Ayia Napa.
Great little hotel
Returned to this hotel after a 3 year absence and found that nothing much has changed.Hotel still very good and thanks to the manager we were given an upper floor room overlooking the sea,which was brill.would recommend this hotel to couples looking for good quite holiday.
We have just come back from a weeks stay at this hotel, and will definitely be going back. It was just about perfect, the staff were so helpful, the food plentiful and good. Wonderful pool, with jacuzzi, and less than 2 minutes walk to a lovely beach.
My hubby and I indulged in an aromatherapy full body massage, while we were there, well worth the money, if you're going to this hotel would definitely recommend you indulge yourself.
My partner and I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Tasia Maris Beach hotel. The hotel itself is lovely, it is kept spotless. The majority of hotel staff were excellent and very friendly.
The dinner buffet was good, although, I did find the menu very repetitive and was fed up with lamb and roast beef by the end of the holiday.
Breakfast was good with a variety of cereals, fruit, breads and cooked stuff.
We ate lunch in the hotel on 3 occasions, unfortunately, these weren't so nice. On one occasion I was served a chicken kebab with raw chicken and the next I ordered a margarita pizza which had some ham and green peppers on it.
The hotel is situated on Nissi Avenue which is the main road into Ayia Napa, it takes about 20 mins to walk into the centre which is manic in the evenings. There are some nice restuarants within the vicinity of the hotel.
Some of the day entertainment organised by Thomson was shocking and more suited to children (dancing to Nelly the Elephant and 3 blind mice in the pool) isn't my idea of adult entertainment, however, a lot of older people were enjoying it.
Overall, I really liked this hotel and would recommend it.
Tasia Maris Beach Hotel in Ayia Napa. A Thomsons Gold Hotel
we booked a lastminute holiday AOA and came up trumps with this wonderful Hotel just outside the main resort of Ayia Napa.
(very british food) roast beef ect
(free room air con which is needed in the summer months)
( First class )
(all hotel lifts take an age when waiting)
My boyfriend and i went to the tasia maris hotel and we loved it.I am extremely fussy and this was a great place to stay.the food was just ok for me but as my boyfriend says i`m too fussy,but having problems with my stomach i have to watch what i eat.Every member of staff was VERY friendly and the entertainment was good and a laugh.the pool was beautiful and overall the place was spotless.i ate out a lot and its not too expensive but being outside of ayia napa this hotel requires taxis or a 15 minuite walk into the centre.I would highly recommend the 3 day cruise to egypt,this was great but the rep failed to tell us this was over 2 hours on a bus when the ship docked at port said.there was a police escort for 2hours but none when we went to cairo.take plenty of water but the bus rep does have a cooler with cans o soda.the sights was fantastic and worth every penny so if you get the chance go for it or you can get a flight for a bit dearer.I was told this was very good too.The boat was lovely despite us both having sea sickness!The food was i must say VERY good!!!!This hotel was smaller than we`re used to but well worth it.Remember and visit nissi beach,short walk to your right when going to beach as the water was crystal clear and looked like we were in paradise ENJOY!!
we stayed at this hotel for our 25 th wedding anniversary
its a good hotel
the food is excellent and even though we were there in november of 2001 the sea was nice and warm to have a dip.
the sea views are fantastic and we will certainly go back very soon.......
but it will be summer time instead.............
do not be put of by the fact that it its in ayai napa.........its far enough away from the crowds and the walks along the sea front are better than the caribean...........
