First time to Cyprus and would love to go back.
"We stayed at this hotel for 11 nights we are fussy people and for our well earned holiday we like a good standard. The Dome beach is very clean the maids clean the rooms daily you can have fresh towels and beach towels daily aswell. There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool and at the beach. The pools are surrounded by pretty gardens.The food is lovely with a good selection and it is still hot when you get it to your table. There is a wide selection of drinks and homemade cake and biscuits in the afternoon which were a hit with two hungry young boys.The staff are very friendly and speak excellent English.The hotel is in a quiet location but you can get to Protaras and Ayia Napa by bus or taxi easily. We had a fantastic day out at the waterpark which you can walk to from the hotel and an excellent day on the Black Pearl trip."

Have re-booked for next year already!
"We have booked again for next year and are taking the rest of the family to the Dome Beach as we had such a lovely time. First of all let me mention the entertainers! They were fantastic especially Mark and Ali, Every day (and evening) they got everyone involved in the activities however were not pushy if you didnât care to join in, we went as a couple but would recommend taking children as there seemed so much for them to do while adults enjoyed the sun The rooms were a nice size and cleaned to a high standard each day (one day the maid didnât change our sheets, they had suntan oil and make up on them but within 5 minutes of a phone call to reception another maid came and cleaned the entire room again and changed the linen as requested) The balconyâs all seemed quite small no matter where you were in the Hotel, they had 2 chairs, a table and a clothes airer, that pretty much took up most of the space however itâs not like we spent the entire holiday sat at the balcony so didnât mind too much - The views are lovely if you have a sea or pool view. Thomas cook messed up our booking and we ended up in a "garden view" there was no garden just concrete! The hotel staff did their best and we were moved rooms within 48 hours. 3 very nice clean swimming pools the main pool was a nice size with a baby pool next to it - the other pool was equally as nice and has 2 spas. Every day the pool guard was cleaning and the cleaners were making sure the surrounding area was free from grime There were plenty of sun loungers by the pool, grassed area or on the Hotels private beach area so you never struggled to have somewhere to lounge/relax. There are water sports on the private beach area however a quite expensive (Â£35 for 15 min Jet Ski) so itâs worth walking to the other beaches for cheaper water sports The food was of a good quality and there was plenty of choice every morning, noon and night (one of the best all inclusive hotels Iâve stayed in for choice) The Hotel had a different theme each night which helped with the variety of food The dining staff were all very polite and friendly making sure you enjoyed your meals Ice cream was for adults as well as the kids Alcoholic drinks were served from about 10am till midnight there were plenty of drinks to choose from even though the all inclusive is local brands only - if you order a international drink they are quite pricey a Baileys set us back Â£5. (Luckily the staff forgot to add it to the room charges) If you fancy a walk there is a nice British bar about 5 minutes from the hotel called the Kings Sword the staff are lovely and provide you with newspapers to catch up on the UK news - along the same strip are a couple of places to eat and some supermarkets. The Hotel is quite a distance from Napa approx 45 minutes walk for us this was ideal as we didnât want a party holiday just somewhere to relax and enjoy the sun! Overall the brochures are pretty accurate about this hotel - Itâs a lovely place to stay and am looking forward to returning next year "

"A lovely hotel that looks just as it does in the brochure. The rooms are a lttle basic and small yet ample and spotless. We stayed 'all inclusive' the food was good. Buffet only. Always something new. An excellent selection of drinks until midnight. Order water with your meal as this is not all inclusive at other times The atmosphere was friendly and staff professional and helpful. A truly beautiful setting where you can sit by the pool whilst looking onto a breathtaking beach. A little money for watersports or to hire bikes or a car is a good idea. Take time to walk along the coast there are some fabulous beaches. The entertainment staff are wonderful making our holiday so much more enjoyable with games for everyone during the day and a varied programme each evening. Great place to stay for families and single parents. Visit the waterworld, try snorkelling and available safari"

"i went on holiday to cyprus last April for a relatives wedding. Me, my daughter and mum stayed at the Dome beach hotel. When we approached the hotel, my first thought was wow, it looked really nice and very clean. we were welcomed by a porter who took our bags over to the reception area, the staff who where working were very friendly and pleasant, we were given our keys to our room, which was based on the bottom floor just along from the reception which was handy as we didnt have to use stairs/lifts especially having a little one! the room was very clean and tidy, excellent! and cleaned every day by a maid. i was a bit wary of the food which was going to be served as i have been on a couple of all inc holidays and found the food to be horrible, but when we went down the restuarant, we were shown to a table and a waiter took our drinks order. we went to get some food which was absolutly gorgeous, i was very surprised to see the choice you got, it had different themes each nite which was good to have a variety. there was even a seperate menu for children which had, the usual kids stuff, fish, nuggets etc, which my daughter loved, she even enjoyed the food what we had. excellent food, the only downside was my waste had expanded by the end of the holiday as i ate that much :) the entertainment was great all the staff was fab, the kids club was brilliant, my daughter got attached to one of the ladies that worked in the club! i also went on a nite out with a couple of the entertainers/reps! they were all so nice and made our holiday even more fun and special we're definatly going to return to the dome beach hotel! it was the best holiday ever, i miss it so much and all the staff GREAT HOTEL xx"

Having just returned home from 2 weeks a...
"Having just returned home from 2 weeks at the Dome and having stayed at this hotel for many years now, I thought perhaps it was time to write a review. So, to give people a bit of insight into this hotel, the following review is my opinion only. As always the holiday this year was fantastic from start to finish. Cleanliness is alway a top priority at this friendly hotel, all areas of are constantly being cleaned and tidied. All the staff (without exception) were exceptional, always having time to spend catching up with family and news from the previous 12 months, whilst still giving that personal but highly professional service. The reception area is light, well furnished and spotless. Reception staff always have a smile and will give as much assistance is is needed to sort any problems anyone may have. We also arrived late at night (as we usually do) and we have never ever had a problem with only one member of staff working, they are so good at their jobs that your checking in only takes moments. The rooms, like reception and the rest of the hotel, are also well furnished and spotless with the essential air conditiioning. Maid service is daily and sheets, towels etc are changed at the same time. The bar and veranda on reception level (Zephyros Bar) is well furnished, spotless and again, very well run by a very experienced Bar Manager named Savvas. The Cerinia Restaurant and Lambousa cafeteria are again well furnished, spotless and well run under the ever watchful eye of Andreas, who has many years experience and knows how to treat his guests and, in his absence, by Nicos and Maria. The Aquarius Pool Bar is well organised, well stocked and well staffed, as overseen by Nicos and Maria. Again one is always greeted with a smile and service is first class. The main pool has ample sunbeds and shades. The main pool attendant/manager, Panis, makes sure that everyone enjoys themselves whilst, at the same time, lessening the chance of accidents by keeping his eye on things. The beach is well looked after with one or two attendants there to supply mattresses to those wishing to sunbathe there rather than around the pool area The new child friendly pool area, round the back of the hotel, is well cleaned, easily accessible, has a water slide and two jacuzzi's incorporated in the pool. The area also incorporates one of the children's clubs and play area. It has a new bar, toilets and shower facilities and easy access to Macronissos Beach and the sea. There are also a variety of watersports available, run by Tasos and Raymond, at an extra charge, again these are all well maintained and presented. The food at this hotel is out of this world, there is so much choice and something for everyone, I never realised how many items could be put out at one time ! There are many chefs and assistants under the wing of Thomas, the head Chef, and he is out and about most evenings if guests need to speak to him or ask him anything. Also, the sign of a good hotel, is the fact that the Management are always out and about during the day, so are easily accessibly, should you wish to speak with them and at least one of them is always around. I personally, over the years, have never found any reason for complaint about any aspect of the holiday at this hotel and would be extremely surprised if anyone could, but there again, there is always someone who would.

Having looked everywhere for a suitable ...
"Having looked everywhere for a suitable hotel to hold our wedding in we eventually found the Dome Beach. Having read some of the reviews I was a little hesitant as we had a party of 15 others travelling with us. I thought I would write an honest review for future holidaymakers. I have to say from start to finish the holiday was lovely. Of course there are a couple of things you can niggle about but they were minor but I will point them out for future holiday makers (*). *We arrived in the early hours of the morning and there was only 1 member of staff on reception, so it did take a while to get booked in and there was nowhere to have a drink or anything so be prepared take something to drink and eat. AI stops at 12pm. Once in the hotel everything was lovely I travelled with my future husband and my 5 yr old daughter plus family and friends. We had a room that although basic by some standards was perfectly adequate for us. *However 1 family in the party had 2 kids and the family room they said was not great just a little bigger with an extra bed, no separate bedroom but hey how long are you in your room on holiday. The hotel rooms were cleaned daily by the maids and you had towels for your room and for the pool, so don't bother taking your own towels. As we were getting married there we had a bottle of fizz, fruit and flowers in our room when we arrived which was a lovely touch. The holiday itself was great, good facilities for everyone, 2 lovely pools enough sun beds for everyone and umbrellas. The staff were very helpful, especially Maria who was a god send. The entertainment team were excellent and kept the children happy every night along with the adults. Dani was a star as were the others and I know it's a tough job to keep everyone entertained - I think they can only get better as the season progresses. The wedding itself was lovely, Nicos the hotel manager was on hand and we had several meetings with him to ensure things ran smoothly. We got married in the hotel grounds under a lovely gazebo, with chairs covered in white and flowers it looked lovely and I was so pleased. We had a total of 33 guests on the day and those not staying in the hotel got day passes so they could eat and drink what they liked. We decided to have a BBQ for the reception and had that on the veranda, it was very informal but just what we wanted. The food on the BBQ was delicious. On the morning after we had a champagne breakfast in bed and then a candle lit dinner for 2 in the restaurant with a separate menu from everyone else and that was just the perfect end to our wedding celebrations. So if you are thinking about getting married here then do it - we had a truly amazing day and although short and sweet it was just perfect. Overall the food was nice, breakfast there was a lot of choice and then lunch and dinner was different nearly every night with plenty of choice, also food for the kids and yes there were chips but not every day. *Eating outside on a morning there are birds that fly around but this is not a major problem but please be aware. Overall this is a lovely hotel and I am glad we went and had a lovely holiday plus a lovely wedding too. We will no doubt return in a few years as Cyprus is such a lovely place. "

"Well what can I say a four star hotel rating that should be a five. My son booked this hotel for his wedding so we were a large party of 22, we couldn't fault it at all. The staff were so friendly, the rooms so clean & well the food I think we all gained about half a stone each by the end of the fortnights holiday. My husband & I will be returning next year for another adventure."

"The holiday was great. It was just like Thomas Cook had descibed it, but better. I am glad we looked at these reviews before we went, they are all correct the hotel was just lovely. The food was gorgeous. We were spoilt for choice. The weather was fab, hot and sunny. The Beach was beautiful, warm, clear and clean. The Entertainment Team, Carla (super singer), Hayley, Dani and Antony were very all on the ball! The Kids World was second to none. Very safe indeed. Sarah, Emma, Steve were out of this world. My children enjoyed it all. The Restaurant staff were well organised. Never had to wait for any length of time for meal drinks. Very obliging, helpful and friendly indeed. Bird poo... well, yes I did see it, but nothing to worry about, it was not that bad! The Dome, Thank-you. "
