fantastic time for families, couples and everyone. Great animation team

30 July 2015

Thankyou for a fantastic time. The hotel was excellent, rooms clean, food great and staff friendly. Big thanks to the entertainment team that made the holiday for my husband and I, playing water...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Cyprotel Almyros for 5 nights arriving 24th July. Originally I was regretting the idea of not booking a week, this regret was soon retracted. We arrived with a complete open mind as we are far from hotel snobs, even after reading several negative reviews. The Hotel- The communal areas of the hotel, in general, are quite pleasant. The pool area is relatively clean, with a handy bar nearby. There are plenty of sun beds and parasols and we managed to get ourselves two every day apart from our last (the hotel suffers immensely from sunbed towel hoggers). The only three things I can fault in regards to the hotels communal areas are; firstly the poolside toilets. They are, to put it politely, absolutely disgusting. Secondly; the rancid bins on the walk back to the rooms on the right hand side of the resort. And thirdly; the fact you have to pay for the sun beds on the beach (€5 for two).. all inclusive? The hotel has a handy shop, I would recommend buying 6 bottles of water (€1 each) as you get the 6th bottle free, and trust me you'll need it. The rooms- They are definitely not much to be desired and certainly leaves me pondering to how this hotel gained its 4* rating. They were at best, basic. My girlfriend had to kindly give up her bed for me as I was unable to get any sleep due to its uncomfortableness, and the pillows aren't much better. We had to cover one of the beds with our top blanket and I also used a towel over my pillow. Our bathroom, was another story. The toilet was absolutely covered in brown stains. And the first time we put on our shower, water the colour of mud poured out. Luckily this cleared. Whilst I thought of asking to change rooms- not wanting to cause a fuss we grinned and bared it. The food- The food in the hotel was actually good on the most part. There was definitely plenty of variety and we certainly didn't go without. They have a good choice of hot food, salad, soup and plenty of cold meats and cheese. There is a small issue of finding a table, oh and a plate at lunch and dinner time. If you do feel like venturing out to get a bite to eat, the town of Acharavi is around a 30 minute walk away. We went one evening and ate at the Lemon Garden. This place was beautiful and the food and cocktails really were lovely. We certainly won't be returning to this hotel, and given the chance would choose elsewhere. It's a shame, as with a few changes and more attention to detail, it could be a really nice resort.

Just returned from a week at this hotel. I will be as honest as possible here. For anyone considering this hotel and looking at the negative reviews, please remain open minded and make the holiday what you want it to be. Reception staff are very friendly and accommodating, as are the restaurant and most bar staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant manager is always there and makes a point of saying hello and asking how you are. Sometimes some of the staff at the pool bar can be less than helpful, but to be fair, I heard how some people spoke to them and if you can't be nice or respectful, then what do you expect. The food is good, with a huge selection at each meal time. My only criticism is the lack of fruit juice in the morning. The rooms are basic, but we were there for the sun, not to sit in our rooms all day. Unfortunately the attic space was very warm as the air conditioning didn't seem to work up there. I suppose this could have been resolved with a small fan. The pool bar has a nice shaded area where there is a pool table but make sure you stock up on euro coins.There is entertainment each day and evening. Evening entertainment can be a hit or a miss but daytime activities such as water polo, aqua aerobics, volleyball and darts etc were all good fun and there was no pressure to participate if you didn't fancy it. A word of warning however is the depth of the main pool. There is a small shallow area over by the pool bar but it gets quite deep quite quickly. There is a red line along the floor to show where it starts to get deeper but children won't be looking out for that so please don't leave young children unsupervised as there are no lifeguards. There is also a children's pool. Mosquitos are a problem, so make sure you have a decent repellant with you. The walk along the beach to the shops takes about half an hour but make sure you take advantage of the lovely warm water and swim in the sea. Also there doesn't appear to be any financial crisis so all in all we had a lovely holiday thanks to the staff at the Almyros.

Excellent for young families

27 July 2015

Just came back after 10 night stay on July 23rd, can honestly say I loved it, the food is same as any other all inclusive, the kids loved it they are 4 and 7 and just wanted ice cream and spaghetti...

If it was t for the beautiful setting, the excellent staff and the ease of getting food and drink then I would probably have a few complaints about the hotel. Check in was very quick which was great as we had been travelling for around 10 hours by the time we got there! Room We were in room 702 and upon arrival we discovered a leaky toilet which was never resolved despite the handyman coming out to "fix" it, water the ran out of the taps in a cloudy almost brown colour and air con that you couldn't run the whole night because it would make an insanely lour dripping noise! Food A good selection available at every meal, I am by no means a fussy eater but there was something there for everyone. No two lunches or dinners were the same, which in a way was a shame because some dishes we really tasty! Lots of fresh fruit for you to have and the staff didn't mind you taking food out of the restaurant in the form of a small snack! The team also provided you a good sized packed lunch if you were out on an excursion for a day as long as you ordered it by 6.30 the day before. Pool and pool bar Good size pool although there was a green scum line all thenwaynaround the water edge which let it down a little. There were lots of kids running around and I never saw one slip once which is a very good sign for anyone with kids, especially as they get very excitable around the pool. Pool bar was good and covered, staff were friendly but service was quick also, there was ice cream and afternoon coffee and cake available which was nice however there were numerous times when the animation team would be sat in front of it tucking in while hotel guests would be standing trying to access it. It also became a bit of a first come first serve, I noticed a small child no older than 8 walk back to his sunned alone with 5 huge pieces of cake! Room servicing the maids started off cleaning the room quite well, but as the week progressed it would be late in the day before the room was cleaned, we were only provided clean towels twice while we were there, and our room wasn't cleaned at all on the last day. The hotel itself has great features as previously mentioned, and the sunset on the roof really is something special. The rooms let the hotel down and are definitely not 4* but really all that we used our room for was to sleep so we didn't bother complaining. Also thought it was a bit cheeky charging people €30 for wifi that you could only pick up near reception!
