“Excellent standard of accomodation and service - Highly recommend” We stayed in Apartment 225 in the Akamas Health Resort which is an oasis in Cyprus. The resort is spotless, well run, friendly, well designed and feels like absolute luxury. It is perfect for a tranquil get away from it all. It is a little cooler up in the hills so in October when we were there we didn't even need air con to sleep. The apartment was cleaned regularly during our two week stay, with fresh towels and linen. The interior design is modern luxury, with beautiful marble floors and white leather sofas (not my usual taste, but perfect for this setting) The washing machine was a great help especially as we made full use of the gym during our stay.
Best of all was the hot tub on the roof terrace next to the BBQ. The views are spectacular over Polis and Latchi and to sit and watch the stars in the hot tub was a regular highlight of our holiday.
The resort itself is on a steep hill, next to a small village - Droushia, and all apartment blocks are within walking distance of each other. The facilities are all to a very high standard, the indoor pool however was ice cold, so only venture into that if you are feeling very brave. The food in the restaurant was delicious and probably to the highest standard we had while in Cyprus. Presently, it seems that as the resort is only about 2 years old it is very quiet with lots of space, no fights for sun loungers etc with other guests. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful and it was so nice for once to be treated as you would expect from a 4* resort.
The resort is in a excellent location up in the hills between Coral Bay and Latchi / Polis so you can have your pick of the beaches. Although a car is essential, we highly recommend taking a drive down into the Akamas Peninsula to have a BBQ lunch at The Last Castle near to Lara Bay.
We would go back in a heartbeat, we thoroughly recommend the resort and apartment 225 especially, because it had such amazing views from the hot tub, with a large roof terrace and a more private enclosed feeling being at the back of the resort, overlooking everyone else.
“Can't wait to return to idyllic Thalassa” I had only been to Southern Cyprus before this trip, and while there are some beautiful places to visit, I feel like it's become a bit spoilt and a friend advised that Northen Cyprus would renew my love of the island....and they were right! The people are friendly and genuine, the food is absolutely delicious and there's so much natural beauty, coastline and unspoilt countryside.
We stayed in a beautiful apartment in the Thalassa resort - tastefully decorated by the owner, with all mod cons, who could not have been more helpful when we booked it, giving us as much information as he could about where to go, car rentals and any other little questions we had.
The resort itself has an amazing pool, but I loved lounging on the jetty that juts out into the sea from Thalassa's own private beach. The surroundings are full of wild flowers and we went on some gorgeous walks along the coast - though I think it would be too hot to do this much later than the end of May.
I think it's useful to have a car as there is not anything really within walking distance, though I understand that soon after we were there a little cafe/grocery was opening on site. But in any case, it's worth having a car to explore the island a bit - the wild Karpas with its stunning beaches, a day trip to Kyrenia and Bellapais amongst others. I look forward to seeing more of beautiful places since we hope to return next year.
The kitchen has everything you need to rustle up some meals with the lovely fresh local produce and there's even a barbecue on the stunning roof top balcony with views across the sea and a hot tub! We also enjoyed a few restaurants that the owner recommended that are between five and twenty minutes from the resort - ALL delicious. Everything tastes better when there's a view of the sea. There are also two 5* hotels which are a five minute drive away, where you can also eat, or we just stopped by for a drink. I'm told you can even use their facilities for a small fee, but we didn't need to as we loved the atmosphere at Thalassa.
All in all it was the perfect holiday for us in a really lovely and comfortable apartment and I'm already planning my next adventure there.
“Villa in the sky” The penthouse is maintained to a high standard. The living area is very spacious, light with treble patio door access to the balcony, where we enjoyed breakfast each morning looking out to the blue sea. My husband enjoyed watching the sunset in the hottub on the balcony off the master bedroom. Would recommend to friends and family.
“Best equipped apartment I have ever visited” Gill was very helpful throughout and answered all my questions promptly. The apartment had a pool and sea view and was very well equipped, even had towels which you could use for the beach! I also liked having the portable sunbeds which you could take to the pool and beach. It is in an ideal location for all the restaurants and Nissi beach, not very far to walk to either. All in all, a very relaxing break in the Cyprus sunshine.
“Lovely apartment” My hubby and I have just returned from a week in this fab apartment. Without a doubt one of the best holiday apartments we've stayed in, spotless and very spacious. Our favourite thing was the huge balcony! The apartment is perfect if you're attending a wedding in the Aeneas Atlantica hotel, just 5 minutes away. Thanks to owner Jackie for organising our transfers which were perfect. Highly recommend.
“Fantastic apartment great value for money!” Myself and my partner stayed here for a week in July. Great location, waking distance to restaurants and bars. Balcony huge and the apartment is furnished to a high standard. Would definitely recommend :-)
“The Fowler holiday” The apartment is super, very spacious and comfortable. I love the size of the patio space outside. Our boys have commented that they could happily live in the apartment. I would like to thank the owners for accommodating our needs on our departure day as we are leaving late in the evening.
I will definitely recommend the apartment to my friends and family.
“Outstanding apartment in wonderful town” Firstly I would like to say what a fantastic apartment this is and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Paphos area of Cyprus. Everything you could possibly want or need on holiday is in this apartment. It is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable and is on a beautifully maintained complex with an excellent swimming pool. The local bus service is super and the stop just a few minutes walk from complex. The wonderful harbour area can be reached by bus but also easily on foot which we usually did and as such were able to explore some of the local unesco sites such as the catacombs. We also took a number of tours around the island the most spectacular of which was the Troodos mountains and monastery, which really is worth seeing.
Finally but certainly not least I would like to add a word of thanks to Mark and Lisa the owners (especially Lisa) who made the whole booking process so simple, Lisa was so helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble for her and was always available for any queries etc. and responded to all my emails straight away.
Once again many thanks to you both and can't wait to stay again.
“Great wee penthouse for our fourball” This was my first visit to Cyprus with my three golf buddies. The Kyrenium Golf Club is excellent, much better than we expected in such a hot climate. We had 10 days in Lyn's Penthouse and played golf every day apart from Sunday when we went to the recommended Lamb in the Well, which was the best lamb we have eaten, but it is a bit of a hike.
The transfer driver had our keys and our rental was sitting waiting for us to get straight off to the course without wasting time.
The penthouse is really convenient to the harbour with the tourist restaurants but we followed the guide in the penthouse and found some great places to eat away from the touristy areas, our favourite Manipenies is only I/2k away. Shopping for essentials was easy in Mahmouds supermarket just round the corner. We ate out apart from breakfast so didn't get a much chance to use the kitchen.
After our cool off in the pool we enjoyed our sundowners on the patio, looking out over the sea and watching the boats. Then out for dins.
This is a beautiful, unspoilt part of the world with really friendly people and we will be back again for the golf.
“Nissi Golden Sands” We stayed here from 31st May until 8th May 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Costas greeted us upon arrival late at night and couldn’t do enough for us. The apartment is gorgeous it had everything we needed. There is a huge balcony with sunlight all day. The location was great it was near to the restaurants/shops but it was also very quiet. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and is absolutely beautiful with lots of water sports. Its great for families my girls loved it. The shared pool is great it has a smaller pool and a larger pool and we had it to our selves most of the time. There is a bus link on the main road that run frequently and only costs 1euro (children are free) we used it to go to ayia napa and the water park.
We will definitely be returning here and are looking forward to our next stay.
“Mr” Really excellent place!
My wife and I enjoyed a much needed break here. This is a really well equipped apartment with an amazing private roof terrace and a shared pool. The beds are really comfy and the place is spotlessly clean. The harbour with excellent restaurants and bars is within walking distance down the avenue and there is also a good bus service which stops almost right outside. Getting to and from the airport was very easy to arrange. A great base to explore the island or just to stay put and relax in comfort.
“A beautiful hillside hideaway!” This gorgeous hideaway is around 15mins from Paphos and situated on a hill, therefore hiring a car is highly recommend and allows you to explore the surrounding area! The apartment was clean and fitted with all the amenities you require to fully enjoy your holiday! The owner, Barbara was a pleasure to deal with and able to recommend places to eat and visit during our stay! The views from the apartment are stunning and literally take your breath away! I highly recommend this apartment, the neighbours are most welcoming and your sure to have a great holiday!
“It was wonderful. Thank you” I was in Cyprus in September 2012, travelling with my baby (8 months) and my parents. We liked this apartment very much, it exceeded all my expectations. Apartment was very new, everything was very clean, there was large balcony where you can spend time either sitting at the table or sunbathing on sunbed. The Nissi beach was just 10 minutes walk, the center of Ayia Napa was 2 km far. The location was great because there was very calm on the one hand (not so noisy as in the center) and good infrastracture in walking distance (restaurants, shops, pharmacy, etc.).
I really recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to spend great holidays in Cyprus.
“Luxurious apartment in a wonderful setting!” Me and my friend stayed in this apartment late June, and how we wish we could of stayed for much, much longer! The apartment itself was stunning, in a quieter location to get away from the hustle and bustle but a close walk to both Nissi Beach and shops/ restaurants. Amazing balcony to soak up the sun and a cool calm feel to the inside when you fancy mellowing down. Overall our holiday was perfect and if you're looking for anywhere to stay in Ayia Napa here is definitely the place, lovely landlord who was brilliant to communicate to both in the process of booking and another lady whilst staying at the accommodation, generally one amazing holiday made even better by the perfect apartment A***
“Fabulously spacious appartment with everything you need in an excellent location.” The appartment is well equipped and in a great location near to Paphos Harbour and a very easy bus journey to Coral Beach and other surrounding areas.
We are a family of 5 and found that we had ample space with the large bedrooms, balconies and excellent roof terrace.
The bus service is superior to ours in the UK and runs frequently. The price of the bus is ridiculously cheap and massively outweighs the cost of a taxi or hire car.
We will definitely be returning to this appartment as it ticks all the boxes.
“What a balcony!” This apartment is beautifully equipped and immaculately clean. The main feature is the balcony- superb! This makes for such relaxing times and is the reason I will definitely return. The pool is lovely as are the nearby beach and restaurants.
