|Location wise, well it depends on what you are after. If it is the clubs and pubs of the town you are facing at least a 20 minute walk. If you want peace, quiet and five minutes to a not bad (if man made) beach, then the Bellini probably ticks your box. However, when I say peace and quiet I am only commenting on lack of road noise.|
The majority of the guests were of middle age onwards. It was therefore surprising to see that Olympic had booked in 9 20 something lads who were there to have as good a time as possible. And why not? The problem being that the blocks have 4/5 rooms in.
The block housing the 20 something's also housed a couple in their 70's who were looking for peace and solitude on their first visit to the island, not to be kept constantly awake.
This is not a dig at the lads who, having paid their money, were out to have a good time. It is the lack of responsibility shown by Olympic which is a surprise to me.
Maybe I am naive but I would have expected a professional holiday company to consider the requirements of all of it's guests. I suppose when it comes to taking money all moral responsibility goes out of the window.
The rooms are best described as basic, although they appear to have been recently refurbished. I am not one for cooking when I am away, which is a good thing as the facilities offered would make it nigh on impossible to prepare a meal.
The flame from the 'cooker' was akin to a cigarette lighter on it's last legs. Boiling a kettle for a cup of tea would take about 15 minutes, so anything was more not attempted.
The maid service was limited. Clean linen and towels a couple of times a week and your bin(s) emptied. I would imagine it was several weeks at least since the place actually saw a mop, in fact I would go so far as to suggest that the balcony would die of shock if it were to ever see one.
Reception/bar hours were variable, but seemed to be mostly from 9ish to 7ish with the staff not over helpful or friendly but pleasant enough. The pool was a good size for the size of the complex but was in need of a more thorough clean, especially the children's pool.
The food available was what you would expect from a pool bar, burger & chips and the like, though the prices were way too high.
Did not try out the air con so cannot comment on its quality, but like everything else, at 6 Euros a day, was over-priced. The safe in the room was an incredible 12 Euros for the week, which is about double the amount I have ever paid before.
There are a number of supermarkets within a five minute walk, with a small selection of restaurants within the same area.
If you are looking for cheap, no thrills, accommodation then the Bellini certainly fits the bill. The shame is that this is a place that could be an absolute delight rather than something at the budget end of the resort.

|Ayia Napa lies on the east coast about 26 miles from the airport at Larnaca. This was once an old fishing village that has given way to the tourist, and is now the biggest resort on the island. A massive amount of hotel and apartment accommodation can be found here, with everything from simple B&B's to the more extravagant. The two beaches are made up of good quality sand, and have nearly every type of water sport available. A good variety of shops will cater for all your holiday needs, and there's plenty of them to choose from. But it's at night that this destination really comes alive, as numerous bars, tavernas and discos spring into life, and the only escape from the noise, is a walk up the far end of the harbour.|
|An abundance of restaurants, and enough fast food outlets to satisfy all tastes, can be found as you stroll the resort centre. As with most popular European destinations, there's plenty of Burgers, Kebabs, Fried Chicken and Pizzas on nearly every pub and bar menu, and all served with as much chips as you can eat. In the more traditional eateries, local dishes such as Meze and various locally caught Fish specials are well worth a try. Local beers are as good as you'll find anywhere, and the Brandy, especially Brandy Sours, are virtually given away as the island makes it's own.|
