Amy Adejokun Section editor

Are you off to Ayia Napa to party? Is being close to a resort town's bars and clubs more important to you in a hotel than its charm? If so, then this is the place for you. Although it is a relatively calm establishment, the Faros is still right at the heart of this resort town and enjoys a prime location for those who like lively days and even livelier nights. On the opposide side of the coin, it is surrounded by streets and the beach is some 200m away, but it does have a huge swimming pool. Otherwise, the Faros is perfectly suitable for those looking for the basic international level of comfort afforded by a 3 star hotel coupled with a warm welcome.

    Location 5.0 /10

    The resort's trendiest bars, the fishing port and its host of fish restaurants, the shops, and the historic town of Ayia Napa are all within walking distance. The Faros is located at the heart of the island's party capital, its location being its main asset. Larnaca airport is 25 mi away, with a transfer time of 40 minutes.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The hotel's 96 Standard guest rooms are housed in the main building, and 'Standard' couldn't be more appropriate. With functional furniture, minimalist decor, carpeted floors, a patterned bedspread, a balcony, an empty mini bar, a free safe, a television broadcasting many channels, and a bathroom complete with a bathtub, the only thing lacking from what you would traditionally expect to find is the hair dryer, which can be borrowed from reception, and the hospitality products in the bathroom, so don't forget your shampoo! With regards to the view, despite the fact that this is not a beachfront hotel, some of the guest rooms do offer good views of the pool and the sea (for a supplement). Otherwise, you'll find yourself overlooking the car park or the street.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The hotel's 96 Standard guest rooms are housed in a single solid three storey building. Inside, everything is centred around a large central patio topped with a glass ceiling, making it brighter and more pleasant than you might think from the outside. The hotel opened in 1995 and was expanded in 2001 when an extension of 34 more luxurious guest rooms, christened the 'Garden Suites', with direct pool access and was opened. The pool itself is huge, to the extent that it takes up all of the outdoor space here, but then it does incorporate a paddling pool, a whirlpool bath, hydromassage jets and a pool bar so you can relax with a drink as the water laps around you. A good number of deck chairs and parasols are also provided at the poolside. Once you're happy with the day's tanning efforts, you might fancy checking out the gym and massage room, complete with sauna and hammam, though you wouldn't really want to spend hours here. For those who like to keep active, gym, aqua aerobics, step aerobics and aerobics classes are provided by an instructor who speaks both English and German. If all that sounds too strenuous though, why not pop along to the outdoor playground with the children or enjoy a game of pool or ping-pong?

    Food and drink 5.95 /10

    With just one restaurant for 130 guest rooms, the Faros isn't particularly well-equipped when it comes to dining. Having said that, the dining room is large and has a terrace running most off the way along it for those who wish to dine outdoors under the pergola at the poolside. The hotel serves a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a rather limited choice of dishes on offer at each meal. The theme changes every night of the week, ranging from perhaps a Cypriot buffet to a barbecue, from Tex-Mex to Mediterranean, etc. An la carte menu is also available. In terms of decor, the room is rather neutral and light, though the small tables designed for 4 people mean that it is possible to have a little privacy. You'll also find real carpet on the floor, which is rather original.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The closest beach to the Faros is 200m away and like all those in this resort town, it is a public beach, where a deck chair and parasol set can be hired for just over 2 pounds a day. Be aware, though, that just like Nissi Beach a little further along, this one also gets very busy and attracts hordes of young party animals on holiday in Ayia Napa. The waters are clear, the sand pleasant and the bars just a stone's throw away....and within hearing distance!

    To know

    The Faros is particularly popular among British, German and Russian tourists. It is well located for those who want to party but is nevertheless a relatively quiet hotel that attracts both young people and families.

      The Aeneas hotel offers an excellent level of services in a polished atmosphere and an architecture of a Mediterranean inspiration. Built a short distance from the beach, it has a lagoon-type pool of a record size that serpentines through the entire hotel just like a lagoon. A rather peaceful atmosphere. Kids will love it! Beautiful active or restful vacations await you...

      The Adams Beach enjoys a privileged location on the verge of the beautiful Nissi Bay beach. It offers quality services in all areas and is suitable mainly for families with children because of its ''water park'' theme and the fact that it does not offer a lot of privacy.

      The Grecian Bay is a luxury hotel located on the verge of a pleasant beach. Its imposing size never casts a shadow on the tranquility or privacy of the place. Because of its numerous facilities for relaxation and sports, it is a perfect place for those running away from organised leisure activities.

      This resort is a touristic village built in a traditional Mediterranean style. This holiday resort is located in south-eastern Cyprus, in the small fishing village of ''Ayia Napa''. The latter has become the most modern and the most popular place of the island. The Thalassaki is a peaceful place because it offers a large space not far from the sea among numerous touristic facilities. An ideal destination for those seeking independent vacations.

      Located in the tourist resort village of Ayia Napa, the Panas Holiday Village is a club that provides simple services, particularly suitable for families. The overall architecture is pleasant; the guest rooms are actually little apartments with a kitchen area and the atmosphere is very friendly. It is a shame, however, about the minimal equipment and the lack of a beach, despite the hotel's location on the seafront. You will find a public beach 200m away.

      The So Nice Boutique Suites is one of the few hotels in Ayia Napa that makes a real effort with its decor, which is quite a surprise in such a young and party-oriented resort village. As a result, it is head and shoulders above the rest of the establishments here. With a tantalising and contemporary ambiance, this hotel offering 57 apartments is probably best suited for guests looking for an establishment with plenty of character and a dynamic staff. This is a great place, so it is a pity there is not much to do apart from sitting on the beach.

Luxurious rooms with a view of the sea, a beautiful restaurant, a pretty swimming pool, and direct access to the beach - what more could you ask for? Children are not allowed at the Olympic Lagoon Beach Club. Although it is possible to never have to leave the hotel, if you want to enjoy some extra services, you will have to make your way to the neighbouring resort. Ouch!

      Perched at the top of a cliff overlooking the sea, the Grecian Park enjoys a most beautiful setting out of the way of the built-up areas. This upscale hotel enjoys quality amenities and a pretty decor; and is certainly not lacking in assets. It is particularly suitable for families and anyone wishing to combine sports and relaxation. The only negative point is that it is so secluded, meaning that guests need a car in order to get to livelier places. And beware of the many steps! The beach lies 300m away, a great part of the distance consisting of steps. This is what you get in exchange for an exceptional view...
