Five star hotel when in reality it's a none star hotel because of their staff. I have no idea where to start, the most unprofessional staff i have ever seen. Let me give you an example: Going down to their restaurant to get a pizza, they tell you, it's closed for the next hour but we could order 5 pizzas...

What a fabulous hotel. The staff are the best of any hotel we have stayed in . Rooms and all public areas are spotless. Socratis and Iannis (great football fans) in the restaurant are a credit. Antonis at the front desk is so courteous and helpful. The food has a great choice every meal. Two negative points :- Sunbeds need...

Usual 5* luxury. Clean and tidy, gardens are well looked after and watered. Pool areas are clean and tidy, drinks service is swift. The food is simply amazing, more choice than I have ever seen at a Buffett and the quality is exceptional. Great service, good staff. Worth every penny. I would however recommend trying to book a drinks included...

The architect deserves congratulations. The hotel is visually stunning. Modern clean lines incorporate beautiful sculptures at every turn. Rooms large, comfortably furnished and spotless. Food varied and constantly replenished. Staff excellent. This is a five star hotel but the rating I feel, is earned largely for facilities provided for families with children. As a couple, however, little touches we have...

Very Friendly staff, Great food but we did find after a week that the main buffet restaurant started to get repetitive. Luckily there are 2 a la carte restaurants, both of which are excellent. I also ate lunch frequently at the pool bar, which to be honest was better than in the main restaurant, but that that's my preference. They...

This was our third visit to Avra and we are already looking forward to the fourth. This is an incredibly beautiful hotel, well maintained and service minded staff. They spoil us guests for making our stay as good as possible. They are genuine and friendly. Although it can fit many guests, it never gets crowded and messy. They offer sun...
