“Nice apartment complex, but definitely not 5 *.”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed in apartment F206 for 2 weeks. Booking process through our POC (Jane Sayce) was smooth and painless - all our questions promptly answered.
Its a nice apartment but it has some flaws - most minor but one major. Good points - its on 2nd floor with no apartment above - quiet and relatively shaded from midday heat. It was very clean with plenty of wardrobe space, hangers and towels. Minor issues - I know this is a self catering rental but in every place I've ever stayed, especially those that advertise themselves as 5 *, there are some small items on arrival to help you "get started". In F206, there was 1 toilet roll, 2 x complimentary small shampoos, 1 tea bag and 2 coffee sticks. Not a massive deal as there is Lidl and Carrefour in Paphos and a small supermarket in the village. 2nd minor issue is there is no mid stay clean or change of sheets available. Another issue we discovered on arrival is that Wifi is available throughout the complex (great) but must be paid for, per connected device. Tried looking again at the Owners Direct website, property CY5109, but cant find it to check how internet availability was advertised. Last minor issue is the bed is knackered. Major issue - the air conditioning can only be turned on for a max 2 hours before it switches off automatically. We would got to bed with aircon ON, and wake up 30 minutes after it switched off, bathed in sweat. On some nights we would have to get up 4 times to reset it.....very very annoying.
The outside areas are very nice with 2 clean pools, manicured gardens and enough sun loungers. Notices inside apartment F206 say no glass items by the poolside and reserving loungers with towels is not permitted - "towels will be removed". Our first week saw these rules well observed but during week 2, loungers had towels on them from early morning with no sign of the owner till later in the day. No action was taken. Used the well equipped gym a few times during the stay but the air-conditioning was always off on arrival. Had o ask the receptionist lady to switch it on but it wasn't powerful enough to cool the very stuffy space.
Mandria village is superb. Only 4 taverna/restaurants - we tried them all and they all delivered quality, excellent value meals. People everywhere were friendly. Would I go back, yes.

Dear David many thanks for your review & hi-lighting the points you have raised. I would like to respond to these in detail if I may.

Firstly these are Self-Catering Apts and mean just that, no food provisions are supplied as that is purely down to clients to conduct there own personal shopping whilst here and there is no offer of provisions being supplied with these properties in any advertising, however as you mentioned there is a reasonable sized supermarket in the village centre, just a 4 min walk away, for essential provisions & there is now also a very large supermarket opened on the main road to village offering fresh produce, meat, fish, salads, breads, wine etc where you find a much greater choice of provisions to choose from.

There are 6 tavernas in village centre, not 4, they offer, like you say, a great selection of local meals at very inexpensive prices so all in all great places to eat & no need for a car!

Mid stay changes are available, at extra cost but inexpensive, and can be arranged via on-site office, again, these are S.C Apts and not hotels, owners do maintain to keep costs down for clients by offering them at very inexpensive rates and very often clients prefer to be left alone, there are also W/M in situ if sheets need to be washed directly.

As regards the WI-FI the advertising clearly states the following.
You buy now access Internet via the purchase of Internet cards available from the on-site office and use them on your laptop by accessing the provider and typing in the code from the card. There is no direct internet connection in this Apt, there is also FREE WI-FI in village centre.
This is only a small charge of é25 euros pw and can operate up to 3-4 devices!

The gym is well maintained via on-site Management company and I'm sure they would have been happy to switch A/C in advance in for you, if requested.

All the Apts have A/C timer switches fitted, not just this one, this is due to the fact that Cyprus has the highest rate for electricity charges in Europe and also previous misuse from guests who arrive and leave A/C running 24/7, even when they're not in has resulted in huge electricity bills, therefore owners & Management have had no choice but to address the matter so the set up is not abused and works the same for all.

There are an abundance of sunbeds and parasols available for all guests use, we as yet have not encountered a situation where beds were not available and I'm sure if this had been the case if you had popped into the office they would have addressed the matter for you, we do expect all guests to respect the public notices.
You didn't clarify on problem with the bed? we haven't had complaints regarding it before however I have emailed the owner to look to the matter as we do strive for happy guests to enjoy a great holiday!

All in all we are glad you enjoyed your stay and the peace & tranquility the Apt offered and from our previous guests we have had many happy reviews from all who stayed there.
On a closing note as you are aware we have a great selection of Apts & Villas close by and we welcome you back at anytime in the future.

Kind Regards Janes Cyprus Properties.

The apartment was a short walk from the restaurants of the small village of Mandria
Nice clean apartment with large veranda

We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment

“A Great Apartment”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Spent 11 lovely days in this apartment in late June. Very clean, well equipped and the balcony provides great outdoor space for dining / relaxing The pool / pool area was excellent and never too busy and always easy to come by a sun bed. Mandria is a pleasant small village with decent Taverna's. There is easy access to other parts of the Island. Would definitely recommend / re-visit.
