We spent one week in Salamis Bay Conti hotel. It was amazing holiday. We arrived to the hotel at 2am but the staff opened the restaurant for us so we could have late dinner or early breakfast ? Everything was prepared in advance, staff took care about our luggage, we really didin´t have to care about anything, the only thing we did was check-in. This was very comfortable for us especially at night. The hotel has two buildings, we got a room in the second building which was finished few months ago. The room was very nice, clean, comfortable, with LCD tv, mini bar for free and we also had a view to the sea. Rooms were cleaned every day (new towels, soap, shampoo, condicioner, ect.). Beach was tiny and small and you have to get up at 6:30 if you want to lay on sunbeds in the first line (there are three lines of sunbeds on the beach). Water was clean but be aware of big stones and clils. Beach was next to the beach so you can have drinks from 10am untill 5pm all inclusive. The big advantage is that if you want water, you get a bottle of water (0,3ml or 0,5ml). If you want some priváte, go to the south by the beach. There are not so many people and the water is great too but it is little bit far away from the hotel bars. The hotel has 4 bars (by the pool, inside the reception, outside the reception and beach bar) where you can also get snacks several times several times a day and night. There are two places where you can have some breakfast. First and the bigger one is in the main building and the second one in the new building. Lunch and dinner is provided only in the main building. You can always choose from 5 main meals (fish, meat, boiler or fried vegetables) with rice, potatoes, fries, fried potatoes and pasta. There is also large selection of salads, sweets, cakes ect. The food is a little bit heavy so we recommend to eat a lot of salads. Drinks are free in restaurant, beach bar and bar outside the reception but inside the main building there are some paid coctails and drinks. There are not many things to see around the hotel – no bars, no discos, pubs ect. If you want to go sightseeing, you can buy a ticket at the reception to the hotel bus which will take you to Famagusta. Famagusta is nice historical down with few shops which has mostly fake products. All shops in Famagusta close at 5pm and then there is nothing else to do. We went for a trip to Nicosia and it was worth it if you want to buy something not fake. There is a possibility to cross the border from North Cyprus to South Cyprus where is a wide selection of quality European products. There are two very nice photographers, they make beautiful pictures and they are very funny. We enjoyed this holiday very much and we have nothing to complain about but we understand the comments below about the loud air conditioning – that is the true in the main building if you have balcony on the south side. You can try to change the room but the hotel is big and crowded. We believe you will enjoy this hotel the same way as we did.
