We always stay all inclusive so we have had many holidays to compare this one to. The food was ok but nothing special.Breakfasts usual things, bacon (not like ours), eggs, beans, eggy bread, pancakes(nothing like ours) fruit, cheese etc.Coffee brought to your table, tea you could make yourself. The milk was ok, no different to home.
Lunch was outside next to the pool, be warned the floor gets slippy with people entering once they had come from the pool plenty accidents.It was similar most days - chips, pork, chicken, burgers (these were lovely), pizza(yuk!)salads, vegetables, soup and desserts.Compared to other all inclusives we've been to there isn't icecream for the children - solved this fill a plastic cup with icecream for them and use a spoon.
Evening meal in restaurant 2 sittings we went to the first 6.30-8.00 ...
we went down for 7pm similar food to the daytime majority of time pork! Take the menu on the board outside with a pinch of salt because not everything was out. We ate out a couple of times as it gets a bit boring.Read More
The hotel was very modern and very clean. The rooms were very clean and well kept. The entrance is very impressive with hanging plants.The hire of the safe is quite expensive. The maid makes lovely swans, flowers, champagne bottles etc with the towels.
We had a side sea view room which was lovely and quiet. The hotel is about a 40 minute walk from the harbour or 15 minutes on the bus which costs 1.50euros each no matter where you go on the bus number 15. You can go into Pathos old town on the bus 11 which costs 1.30euro. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Compared to other hotels we've stayed in and other riu the entertainment was very poor. They do a couple of things in the morning then a couple in the afternoon (the usual - tai-chi, water aerobics, water polo etc) at nights the animation team do a show or theres the odd outside act which aren't much better.
This is the 8th time we've been to Cyprus - the most expensive too, since going into the euro the prices are ridiculous.Yes we would come back but not to Pathos as theres not a lot for families to do at this end of the island.
