We are a family who booked this villa to attend a wedding in Nissi Bay.
We consisted of 6 adults and 5 children ages (1-11yrs)
From the moment we arrived everything was perfect, we were on a late night but we Su the manager still waited to greet us and show us around the villa so we could get a feel for the place.
The villa itself is huge and easily big enough for a few famillies/ groups of friends travelling together to have a fab time together and have there own space aswell.
It is very clean and well equipt with everything you need, the kitchen is large with all appliances and equiptment you could possible need for a holiday you could manage to cook any meal you wanted to.
All bedrooms are an excellent size with double beds in them , they also have cots and single camp beds available and each room has a bathroom of its own which is a god send!
The pool is a lovely size and we travelled in may and although it was chilly it was fine once you took the plunge !
Plenty of sunbeds and chairs /tables around the pool area.
Nice shady areas if you want to be out of the sun.
Best part for us all was the hot tub ! we loved it its a decent size and so nice especially at night time.
The outside bar was so chilled and relaxing of an evening just a lovely place to sit for a glass of wine or 2 !
This villa is up a quiet road with no neighbours currently overlooking it so its very private and meant we could have music on at night no problem.
We managed without a car for the full week as Su the manager took us shopping and we used taxis the rest of the time.
It was easy enough with no car, a couple of the group walked into paralimni town and it took approx 30mins here you will find supermarkets, bakerys, shops, etc its much bigger than i expected.
10-15mins in a taxi will take you to protaras or ayia napa where you have a large selections of shops / bars / restaurants su took us here to lidl which was very reasonably priced and stocked everything we needed.
The manager : Su in my opinion was excellent she goes beyond the call of any villa manager we have had before in previous villas and was so helpful , she took us shopping and waited while we stocked up, run us to local shops, pharmacy etc nothing was too much trouble and she was able to advise us on places to eat etc when she says call her for anything she really meant it .
Taxis : your left a car with a number on for a taxi on in the villa and i can highly recommened using the driver, he was always on time very friendly and helpful and with the villa being slightly remote he knows its exact location. If you need more than one car he comes with someone else and if hes busy he will send anothe driver ensuring a prompt service all the time.
It was costing roughly 15euro to get to protaras/ nissi bay for the wedding we attended / the water park aswell
it was about 8euro to paralimni town.
Days out : we went to water world and it was an excellent day out the kids and adults loved it. Prices were 33euro and adult and 19 a child but we managed to get some scratch cards which gave a discount from a supermarket.
In May it was nice and quiet no queues for rides and plenty of sunbeds, the water was warm.
Meals in there are appox 7.50euro for a meal and drink. ( you cant take your own)
For anyone visiting the Olympic Lagoon for a wedding i would recommend only buying the wrist band for drinks and not food, we got food ones aswell and went for breakfast but really it wasnt worth it you could just eat before you go.
Eating out :
Try Georgias steak house in Protaras fantastic services, excellent fillet steaks and they were fab with the kids we went twice first time there was 7 of us and the 2nd time 11 and every single starter , meal and pudding was perfect.
we also tried the mexican over the road from it but this was nowhre near as good , the meat wasnt very good quality and we wouldnt go back there .
Cheers bar was a nice family bar having lots of choice of beers on draught.
Couple of points i would say the villa needs WIFI adding to it and a bigger dining table if everyone wanted to eat inside it wasnt big enough BUT we like eating outside so didnt effect us.
Also 2 or 3 bikes to use would possibly be a good idea for people wanting to cycle to the shops.
We would all definitly go back !
