We originally booked the Silver Sands hotel and we were dismayed to be told that it was not available. However, when we arrived at the Odessa we were very pleasantly surprised, despite it being the middle of the night! We were told we had been given a good room, it was big & clean with lovely views of the pool & the ocean.
The hotel itself huge, with a great pool & big bar. We loved the hotel's location as we could walk straight down to the gorgeous beach, or along the whole strip & back of an evening for food & cheap drinks. Much better location than the Silver Sands (we were quite relived that we got the better hotel!)
The breakfast was great, and evening food ok but we only ate it a couple of times. The entertainment is loud, but the whole of Protaras is loud so no early nights for anyone - but who cares? We were on holiday after all!
I would definitely stay there again, but only in the autumn as I believe that the resort would be too busy in the summer.
Grubby smelly hole
Arrived at what is supposed to be a 4star hotel, and immediately knew it wasnt.
As soon as we opened the door to our room, the smell hit us!
As if the door hadnt been opened for months, damp musty smell!
Carpets were filthy, room hadnt seen any decoration work for what must be years, and things got worse.
There was blood stains down the outside of the bath, the shower curtain was mouldy and smelled awful, and allowed water to flood the bathroom.
Trying to get dry, the towels were filthy and smelly. Wash your hands
and the towel made your hands smell! Too late at night to get the rep, so saw her first thing next morning. She offered us another room. Waste of time. Exactly the same horrible smell.
Staff were told to clean the room, and hey presto, 4 hours later, it was just the same. The pool was then to be out of action for 2 days,
while the glass covered was taken down, and the following weeekend out of action while they re-tiled the pool!
The entertainment was in the bar, where your all inclusive drinks could not be taken, you have to buy the bar drinks!
Looking around, even all the other guests looked unhappy, and there was no holiday atmosphere at all.
There was 1 bar man in the hotel, to serve ALL the guests! The staff were far from co-operative, and all in all was the hotel from hell!
Demanded to be moved to Constantinos. What a lovely Hotel. So if your thinking about which one to choose, make it the Constantinos. Every thing was perfect, from the rooms, to the staff, the food, everything.
had a great time
We have just got back from the Odessa and had a great time. We had two 14 year old girls with us,and they had a whale of a time and made many friends.
We were upgraded to seaview rooms which was fantastic. Try to get one of these rooms or a poolview room.
The rooms were clean and well equipt. Fridge and room safe were an extra fee. the only problem we had was the fact we had to wait 5 minutes for an iron but three days for the ironing board!!!
The other BIG problem is the sunbeds...What is wrong with you lot???You complain for years that a certain nation hog the sun beds with their towels in place 1st thing in the morning...and then do exactly the same !!!You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves. Hooray to the person who threw all the towels in the pool one morning!!! And then , at lunchtime the beds, are left with towels whilst these selfish people go and have lunch..
Good things..the hotel, the staff, who work their socks off,and the area itself.
The beach is beautiful, and well kept. Here you can rent out a sunbed for the day for £1.25 and the umbrella for the same.Be careful if you go into the sea as there are rocks just close to the waters edge. The rocks are very slippery. To the left and right of the beach there are "entry points" where there are no rocks.
Boat trips are a must.Captain Panikos, just left along the beach,is fantastic value for money. Also the Arias trias which is a day long trip booked though the hotel.
Would we go back?? Definately!
best hotel ,top spec rooms ,excellent staff very child friendly,excellent facillities,stayed at 6 other hotels in the area this is the best.
