Brooks Family – Cyprus (July 2015)

We had a lovely time on our recent family holiday to Cyprus (Paphos – Olympic Lagoon Resort) – the hotel is all shiny and new so very clean. Food was very good, lots of choice and presented very well. We preferred to eat in the buffet style restaurant as more choice. The children did go in the diner a couple of times but also preferred to sit with us in the main restaurant. What I liked was you were reserved a table as we were a large party and then shown to your table and served drinks whereas in other all inclusive it’s more seat yourself. There were rather a few weddings which did not really bother us until a rather drunk groom got hold of the microphone which was quite entertaining!  The hotel staff all very pleasant and helpful. Choice of drinks very good – children loved the milkshakes and mocktails during the day around the pool.

The only downside for me was the beach, you had to pay for the sun loungers and umbrellas and it was very small and rocky so not really very attractive. I do prefer a nice beach rather than the pool but saying that the pools were lovely and clean. It was good to be able to walk into town from the hotel too and have a drink at the excellent bars. Locals very friendly and the bars had a really nice atmosphere. Felt very safe for the children, they hired some three wheeled motorised bikes and went off along the prom most days which they loved too. Overall a most enjoyable and very relaxing holiday, thank you for co-coordinating our group of three families!
