Excellent hotel, very reasonable.

Posted Oct 25, 2016
Pros: The location and price
Cons: The air con
Location: Location excellent. Close to all the restaurants and bars . Beach only a 2 minute walk. Lots of watersports. Yellow Submarine boat trip excellent €10
Hotel was in a perfect location, we stayed in the older part which was fine for what we needed. Clean, spacious and close to everything we needed. The only downside to our room was that the air con in the living area wasn't working and the one in our room was very noisy and even when on the room was still very hot. I know the other side of the hotel has been updated and we saw someone else's room and it was lovely. I guess the old side may be updated soon. Air con was a must for the heat. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast was nice. We didn't use the pool as were only on a short trip for a wedding, but the beach was a 2 minute walk and the sea was very warm. Lovely ice cream shop right next door to the hotel.

Close to the beach, restaurants and bars!

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: Everything! Rooms to staff to pool. Could not fault it.
Location: Location- amazing!! Everything on your door step. Even the bus stop if you decide you want to visit Ayia Napa.
We had the best experience staying at Alva. The hotel staff were lovely, welcoming and helpful. We had booked to stay for 10 nights in the standard apartment and when we arrived, we were greeted to be told that we had been upgraded to a suite. The hotel room was lovely and clean. Cleaners did an amazing job every day cleaning and they would give you fresh towels. The hotel had 1 hour free wifi slips that you could pick up at reception. Hotel Room also had a good hairdryer which is a bonus. The pool was nice and you could order food and drinks from the bar. Being so close to the pubs and restaurants we found that our room was so quiet and you could not hear a thing at night time. Beach is so close which is great you can have the option of both pool and beach. I don't think we could have picked a better hotel. 100% recommend this hotel! This was our first holiday and was ideal- this hotel would suite couples and families.

Lovely hotel, great location

Posted Jul 11, 2016
We had a lovely decent sized room with a balcony. Its very modern and clean, the maid service is really good. It was a 5 min walk from the beach and all the restaurants and bars. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Nice hotel, very close to the beach

Posted Sep 1, 2015
The hotel is just 2 minutes walk from the fig tree beach and in the center of Protaras with many restaurants, cafes, luna parks etc. It is clean with very friendly staff. There are 2 blocks. The first is recently renovated (it looks great), but we stayed in the other block that is good too.

Good facilities at a fair price

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: It was nice and clean and well appointed. The staff were always friendly and helpful.
Cons: See above.
Location: Protaras is a busy seaside resort with lots of Brit/American theme bars (if that's your thing) and a couple of traditional tavernas.
I stayed in the Alva Hotel Apartments in Protaras for three nights while attending a family wedding nearby. I was staying with my wife, toddler and baby. Alva had set up the room with two three-quarter beds, a roll-out bed for the toddler and a travel cot for our baby. The room felt recently renovated and was spotless. There was a small kitchen area with lots of useful appliances and utensils for a short stay (but nothing to clean the kitchen stuff with). There were some minor niggles: a great shower but no bath (hard to bath a baby in a shower), our room was cleaned once in three days (but we didn't get fresh towels), there was a safe for valuables (but it cost extra, which felt a little like racketeering), there was free wifi in the lobby (but cost extra in our room), there are no pool towels available (bring or buy your own) and my favourite, a luggage cart confined to the lobby because it can't go upstairs or fit in the lift.

Thank you for your review. Having checked your reservation, you booked a 1 Bedroom Apt but on arrival were upgraded to a new Suite (this should have been pointed out to you). Perhaps you forgot to remove the 'Do Not Disturb' sign outside your door so the maids could not clean your room.

Great value hotel

Posted Jul 27, 2015
Brilliant location excellent staff and not too expensive 5 mins walk to the fab fig tree bay beach we had room 202 (suite ) it was cleaned EVERY day for about 30 mins and we were supplied with fresh towels daily pool was ok but we are beach people anyway. Staff were great and extremely friendly, they even have some cats milk n food only down was the air con was not powerful enough beyond about 6am. We asked for a fan which was provided at no extra charge which helped massively I would recommend this hotel (room 202) Cheers all

Thank you for your review. Please note that we do not feed the cats but unfortunately, despite our request, some guests continue to do so.
