Just returned from a fantastic holiday to the Amara Dolce Vita and other than a couple of points I can say that it is one of the more luxurious hotels we have been to with extremely friendly staff and we are more than happy to return. The quality is all over from traditional PIDE cooking to the Ice Cream bar to a freezer with wet towels by the pool, free internet and wi fi, drinks served in special glasses ( try the one with the goldfish ) and quality drinks served with fruit, chocolate and nuts. The kids will love their club, the ice cream, chocolate fountain and the zoo. Tennis courts , Basketball and football courts are free. You can also pay to go ten pin bowling, 6D cinema and horse riding
You arrive into a sumptuous reception area with a fantastic chandelier and are welcomed at the door with a lady serving you champagne, chocolates and Turkish delight. She stands in the middle of a round table made to look like she is in a big ballroom dress. The reception staff are very friendly and there is always someone there, or anywhere, who can speak English. Walking through the hotel there is always somewhere quite to sit in style comfort.
The rooms are very spacious with large beds but the mattresses are hard. The bathrooms have separate shower and bath and all the soaps and moisturisers you will need. You even get toothbrush, toothpastes, saving foam and shaver. The rooms have a separate lockable walk in wardrobe with a safe. Tea and coffee facilities are available with fridge stocked with soft drinks, water and beer. TV, but with limited English channels. The one issue we have was the first room was designated a Garden view but instead it looked straight onto a forest with the branches nearly into the room making it very dark. See Photos. Once we complained we were moved to a room overlooking the tennis courts which was much brighter. Worth asking for a pool view.
The beach is sand/shingles with plenty of beds with mattresses with Towels provided. No drinks service on the beach but a man walks up and down with a cool box of water. There are two beach bars. One just serves beer but the pool bar is only another couple of mtrs away. Like everywhere in the hotel the beach is kept exceptionally clean. There is a very large pool area with a covered kids pool plus a salt water pool and a pool in each of the external room blocks. There is also a slide pool situated a bit out of the way. If the weather is bad there is a large internal pool you can use which is part of the SPA and you can have a swim, sauna and steam room as part of the All Inclisive.
The main restaurant is where the hotel lets itself down. Breakfast has a huge selection of fruit, breads, cheese, salami and salads and a variety of eggs but the food is often cold. Eggs are fried en masse and placed on cold metal trays before being placed on heater trays. I would prefer to wait and have mine cooked fresh. Tip is to ask for eggs over easy as they are then fresh. Even bowls of mushrooms brought fresh from the kitchen are cold. It’s the same with the other meals in that there is plenty of variety with the salads, cheese and deserts but the quality of the meat is not the best and if you are not in by 8pm the specialties are gone. If you want a decent steak you need to go to the A La Carte. These are not expensive $10 each per night but you have to book them. Don’t miss out on the Fish Restaurant. The food and the view are fantastic. We had our last night there overlooking the hotel with the moon reflecting off the sea and ended up watching the Thursday night Fireworks from above. Also loved the Asian and Italian. Ask for the menu in the 24hr.
The best part of the hotel is the night life. There are many different bars to go to with different styles and the quality of the entertainment is great from the night shows to the groups by the pool at 10pm and especially the Jazz bar. There is a gala show on Thursdays with Fireworks.
Just be aware that the walkways can become very slippy when wet, worthwhile taking some shoes/sandles with a good grip. Flip Flops become like ice skates.
