Thomson Gold - Farcel
"Just returned from this Thomson 'Gold' Hotel, it was a pleasnt week's stay but not as adverised, this is NOT an addults only hotel and has groups of teenagers on a mission! Good points are the friendly staff and excellent food. Plaese note rooms are ten years behind the Spanish equivalent!! Did I really say that?"

"Just got back from the tasia maris, where we all had a great holiday. The holiday was made perfect by the efforts of the entertainment staff, in particular Jamie and Dixie Leigh supported by the wonderful Dance On duo of Wuilliam and Jamie Rae. The food and level of service were superb and we have come back totally refreshed. The manager, Tattus was a top man and he runs avery good establishment. Thank you to all at the resort for ensuring we had a memorable stay and we would like to return at another point in the future. Until then, all the very best and take care. Dave Isabel and Samantha."

"Tasia Maris Hotel is superb! just got back after two weeks of sunshine and total relaxation - when we wanted it.
There is plenty to do, twenty minutes on the beach to the left you can walk into Ayia napa harbour, or twenty minutes to the right and walk into Nissi Beach which is lively when you have had enough you can take a stroll back to the peace and quiet of Tasia maris.
Hotel rooms are spotless and well presented and the staff go out of their way to make your holiday as enjoyable as they can.
There is a lounge bar and terrace bar and swim up bar too... and the food in the restaurant is excellent and the choice of food is excellent to... something to please everyone, apart from the brown sauce - it was not Daddys sauce and my husband did not approve at all... Apart from that one small thing the rest was beautiful - chef was always on hand if you wanted to ask any questions regarding the food that was on or if you had any requests!
Cant fault it the best holiday we have ever had!

"This was the best hotel we have ever stayed in, the hotel is a credit to the manager and the staff, and the entertainment team were excellent, especially the girls, we had only booked for a week and we so wanted to stay another week, will definatly go back, the rooms are clean as is the hotel and the food was excellent, so much choice. I liked the way everyone gets to know each other, and we met some great friends there, this is a must for couples, you wont be disapointed. colin & lynne grace."

"Myself and my husband went here for our honeymoon in Aug â05, it was a great experience and we had a lovely time. The hotel was very clean and tidy and always looked inviting, the staff from management to cleaners were very friendly and helpful. The pool and surrounding area was beautifully kept and again always clean.
The food was fantastic (Iâm sure I came home a stone heavier!) always so much choice and every dish tasted brilliant.
All in all I highly recommend this hotel for couples of all ages, it has something for everyone. My husband and I would love to return one year in the not so distant future just need to get rid of the kids first!

No 1 Hotel on Cyprus
"Great service from the moment we walked through the door. A spotlessly clean hotel, tremendous food selection and friendly helpful staff all combined to make this a holiday we will not forget in a long time. This hotel is in the Thomson Gold brochure but it out performed several hotels from their Platinum range we have recently visited. The hotel manager was always available to socialise with guests and he personnally wished ALL his guests bon voyage when our holiday came to an end.
SUPERB SERVICE - IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING CYPRUS - BOOK TASIA MARIS...A 5 STAR HOLIDAY VENUE"

I came back for Thompson Towels
"Following our visit in July this year Again I canât sing the praises of this hotel enough EXCELLENT!! The food is very good the staff and manager are still as friendly as they were earlier in the year.
Again The Thomson Gold entertainment team of âTâ and âHâ were brilliant. How they missed our on the Best Thompson Gold Entertainers is Beyond me. I understand that the team that won had there own little bundle of Dynamite keep the Gold Guest Happy. (See Atlantica Bay Review 17TH Oct 2007)
The Water fun fitness, Again the funniest exercise Iâve ever watched, âTâ Revamped some of the party songs to refreshing thing up, still addictive. These Girls must be sick to the back teeth singing Big Fish, Little Fish, Court of King Caractacus, The Mimic Man since April. Although the best of all a Chinese Version of YMCA. âBrilliantâ
You both deserve the rest at the End of October.
The daytime activities were fun to join in with, as well as watch. âTâ smiled through each event with massive enthusiasm, even after she had fallen off her bike on her Day Off. âHâ THE Donny lass never fell off here bike but she smiled on in the 40ÂºC temperatures like a true pro.
On an evening âIan Rawlinsonâ entertained with his unique brand of singing and running about, kept the Audience well entertained and best of all heâs a really nice bloke.
The UK Cabarets were very entertaining the comic and singing duo Harris and Day were hilarious. Not to be missed.
Once again thanks to Tasos (the manager) and his staff for a perfect holiday.
This hotel is definitely recommended!"

"My husband and daughter and I went to Cyprus for the very first time and stayed at the Tasia Maris hotel and this was a Thomson gold hotel.
We had a fantastic time the weather was beautiful and the people very friendly indeed. The hotel was spotless and everything you need from a hotel.
The only down side was make sure you take a travel kettle as one is not supplied, only to hire. The room was lovely with air conditioning and the pool was just the best.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone, we will be returning in 2008."

"We returned from the Tasia Maris last week, and had a brilliant time. Me and my partner got married at Ayia Napa Town Hall, The Thomson and Hotel staff couldn't do enough to help our day run smoothly.
Now where do we start?
The accommodation. The room was excellent, always clean towels when you returned from the pool or the nearby beach.
The food was excellent, always a variety for everyones taste.
The thomson staff, namely Heidi and Kelly, were always there and so helpful, As we were getting married the first week, Heidi was there on the morning of our arrival with all the relevant paperwork and advice etc required by the Cyprus govt. Our wedding day went ahead without a hitch. The day after our wedding we had breakfast in bed with champagne and flowers, what a lovely thought from the staff. If you do get married in Ayia Napa I would recommend this Hotel for all the right reasons.The photographer was excellent, taking 250 photo's...how do you pick just 36? outstanding!!
The pool area does look bigger in the brochure, but dont let that put you off, it really is that good. okay, you do need to get up early for a sunbed, but the management did put signs up telling everyone that they would remove towels if you were away for a while, but hey, your on holiday and the local attractions are around you, including nearby Nissi beach, now that is one busy beach, oh yes, There is one directly behind the hotel, small and quite, but very nice and clean. At Nissi beach, my wife decided to do a bungee jump(200ft) up, is she trying to tell me something....The hotel had entertainment everynight, good, but not always our cup of tea! The local area has the normal taverna's, but we found the hotel food was so good, why bother eating out?
Tassos the manager must be proud to have such hardworking,helpful and ever happy staff working at this excellent hotel. We would love to come back next year. Thank you for making our 2 weeks special."

Hotel gorgeous, Cyprus gorgeous, entertainment rubbish!!
"I loved my two weeks at the Tasia maris, the hotel is probably one of the nicest i have stayed in, the pool is amazing and Cyprus is gorgeous, but i would not pay to stay here again. The reason for this is because the entertainment was so rubbish in the evening and unless you make the treck into Ayia Napa centre, there is only a couple of not so great bars to choose from playing the same Kylie and Elvis tributes night in night out. Be warned, if you get a pool view room, you will have Kylie serenading you to sleep unitl 1:00am from the bar behind the hotel.
Another reason for not staying here again is the location of the hotel. It is right on the main road into Ayia Napa, so can be quite noisy and when it is 42 degrees outside, although Nissi beach is only a 15 minute walk away, you really can't be bothered to make the treck. Also i didn't like sandy bay beach which was quite dirty some days.
If you stay at this hotel though, you must go to Nissi Bay, it was amazing! Theres a quiet end and an end with beach bars and music, it has a really nice atmosphere and the sea is very clear and warm, perfect for swimming in! Another place i would reccommend is Konnos Bay for snorkelling, we saw the most amazing fish there, proper tropical ones! And also, take a boat ride to see Cape Greco and the sea caves!!
All in all, i loved my holiday, but when i come back to Cyprus i will be staying nearer to Protaras and in a hotel with much better entertainment and in a better area with more things to do and better bars for the evening."
