Facilities► View all
You get free access to the waterpark which is just across the road from the hotel. There's an impressive list of slides to get excited about - the Kamikaze and Freefall are both speed slides with big drops for those that enjoy a bit of a rush. And there's the Aquatube bodyslide with its twists and turns in the dark. The multi-lane number gives you speedy-fun races, too.
And just so you know, you need to be 120cm plus to use the bigger slides, and 140cm for the Sidewinder. Little ones aged 3-8 years are catered for at the Children's Play Area, and all the family can enjoy the Lazy River and Wave Pool. The waterpark is open May to October.
At the hotel-run kids' club, kids aged 4-12 will really get to show their creative side here, with drawing, dancing, singing and stories all on the programme. They'll also enjoy some downtime with a movie, and be able to take part in creative play.
Generous in size, the pool here comes with a large terrace dotted with sunloungers. There's a pool bar in easy reach, too.

came to electra village with a large party,around 39 people all here for my daughters wedding.we arrived at 4pm on the 19th of july and where greeted in reception by waiters with trays of cool fresh soft drinks for us.thought that was a nice touch,just what was needed after a long journey.The reception staff checked us without any fuss and we started our holiday.Yes the rooms are a little dated,but they are clean and spacious,to be fair you don't go on holiday to sit in a room,we used ours to shower and sleep.The water park is a big plus if you have children and seeing as i'm a big kid i enjoyed going round the lazy river with my grandson and trying a few slides.The entertainment team,well what can i say,all 3 work hard to make your stay enjoyable,Anis,Laszio and fanny all went out of there way to get to know all our party.Can't really comment on the food as we ate out a lot of the time in the evenings,had breakfast a few times and no complaints and the snack bar in the afternoons was very good.Top tip for a nice meal out 'Demetrion' in Potamos you'll need a car or taxi but well worth a visit.For a good family night out try Tommy's pub. all in all it's a good family hotelMore

Putting it into context
Having read some of the negative reviews prior to my holiday I had some real concerns but found it to be fine. Stories of ants in the restaurant, unhelpful staff, bland food and dirty rooms are pretty far from the experience that I had in August 2015. The staff Always polite and very helpful. Anis and Laszlo the entertainment duo work tirelessly to entertain the residents and the service I received was always good. On day 1 we found that our air conditioning had a leak. I reported it to reception and it was repaired within 15 minutes. The rooms Agreed, they are not spotless and gleaming but they are clean, spacious and cleaned 5x/week. All of the facilities within them work ok. Not an awful lot more I can say about then, I had no complaints. The pool Yes, like any resort you need to get up early if you want a sunbed! My experience was that at 8am beds were available. The pool was cleaned every morning although you often felt grit on the bottom when walking across the pool. My main complaints about the pool area primarily the noise (loud music) from the bar area. It wasn't always too loud but most days it was. Also, the amount of spilt drinks, empty cups blowing around and old chewing gum around the pool area. The cleaning staff were around the pool area at least twice most days but when you have residents taking drinks to the pool area, spilling them and then not bothering to put their plastic cup (I will come onto the plastic cups later) in the numerous bins it's a recipe for litter or ants in the pool area. The cleaners did their best but residents need to take some degree of responsibility for this. Restaurant The food in general was ok. I wouldn't say anything served up made me say 'wow' but putting the food into context it was what I would expect from a 3* all inclusive. I didn't have any complaints other than a real lack of authentic Greek/Cypriot food. The menu had a different theme each evening and once a week it had a Cypriot theme. I must admit that the salads were always good/fresh and the meat pie on the British night was really good. If I am completely honest the restaurant had a school canteen feeling to it. The only real complaint about the restaurant was a lack of cups and glasses. The drink classes were plastic disposable cups and most mornings I had my coffee in a Styrofoam cup! The waitress/waiters in the restaurant all worked exceptionally hard and were always polite and friendly. Beach area and waterpark The beach was an ideal retreat for peace and quiet. You could always get a sunbed on there and it was spotlessly clean. It is a bit rocky and getting into the sea could be a bit slippery but I loved the beach area. The water park was located directly opposite the hotel and great for kids and adults. Not the worlds biggest waterpark but you could always get on the slides and a sunbed. Pool bar area and evening entertainment At times it was a struggle to get a table after 9pm and if you were seated under the canopy area it was hot and stuffy. A bit more variety would have been good but between 8pm and half 9 it was the same kids disco with the same music followed by bingo!! The evening entertainment after 21:30 ranged from terrible to surprisingly good. The karaoke both weeks was terrible (even if you had drunk a few beers it was shockingly bad) but the other extreme was the fire act that was excellent. The rest was all a bit mediocre if I am honest but I definitely wouldn't say that the rest was rubbish. The WiFi At best it was just about ok. I rarely used it but when I did it repeatedly booted me off after about 5 mins of inactivity. The best place to use it was in the hotel lobby. Elsewhere in the complex you could get online (eventually) but it was very slow and maintaining the connection was troublesome. I have given the Electra 3/5 based on it being in my opinion an average 3* hotel. Not a shocking place but not an amazing place either.More
6th Visit to Electra - And I am always honest in my review
As always in my reviews, I will write about each part that we as a family of 5 (kids are 13, 4 and 2) find important on a holiday. Only my views but hopefully they will help. Sorry if it's a bit of an essay but I always read about places we visit and like to contribute in return. Location This for us is very high up on our list of 'important' and is a big reason we return to the Electra. Some sites list it as Nissi beach, others Ayia Napa and then recently I saw it as Larnaca region too. It is almost smack bang in between the Ayia Napa main resort and Nissi Beach. So this is perfect since we love to get out and explore, Electra sits on a beach location (about 30 steps from the pool bar) and so walking the beach route to either is about 20 minutes. Or you could go via the road along Nissi avenue which connects the two resorts by road. Nissi Avenue is packed full of shops, restaurants and bars as can be expected - again this is about 20 minutes. Or if its extra hot, the taxi is about â¬7. The beach at the back of the hotel is perfectly fine,if a little stony. Sandy bay is five minutes walk across the beach path. Weather Cyprus is VERY VERY HOT during the summer months. I always love listening to some of the comments around the pool area when people say "it's too hot". Trust me, there is no let up. It starts as soon as the sun comes up and stays right through. Even a sky full of clouds at 8am doesn't get in the way - the Cypriot sun knows us Brits are on holiday and it soon sorts them out too...!! We have two younger children and can always find shade and places to keep them cool. We're the type that plasters the youngest kids in cream and you'd think they've just got back from Iceland not Cyprus. If you come to Cyprus a good tip is to buy the cremes and lotions at home, its expensive in resort. Wear shorts to the airport (you'll be glad you did when they open the aircraft doors in Larnaca) and don't worry about bringing clothes for 'cool nights' - they don't exist for many months. Resort Itself The main part of the resort is on a single location which is styled in small blocks - 4 units to each, mostly focussed on the giant pool but some which are set back. All parts are quite beautifully landscaped but you don't really notice it which is a shame, the are lots of areas (mostly commented on below) with a launderette, arcade and tennis courts (not commented on) Then there is the waterpark part of the resort. This is over a very small road.... other reviews talking about a dangerous road must be mad. Google it.... it is a single road serving only access to the Electra and the bar across the road. The waterpark part had to be separate because it is much newer than the original site. The road barely ever has cars on it and if you're letting kids who lack road sense to run around unsupervised then the road itself should really be the least of worries. Reception We've never had a single concern with this part ever. The staff are always very polite, welcoming and efficiently get you on your way to your room. There is no service which walks you to your room (not needed in my opinion) and nor have I seen luggage trolleys. For very early morning arrivals I guess this could be a little unsettling. Rooms Again, this time I have to repeat that the rooms need some money spent on them, mainly in the fittings and bathroom but since we don't spend more time in them than is absolutely necessary this doesn't overly bother us but I do understand other peoples comments on this. Room Cleaning In opposite to the point above, I'll never understand how people are less than positive about the cleaning teams. We've always had an exceptional service from the staff we have had assigned to our room. This year was the best yet, the room was cleaned everyday apart from one (which is notified in the room) with fresh towels etc. Pools There are 2 pool areas. The main one is on the main site and the other is the waterpark. The main pool is massive. It has a baby section and a separate water volleyball pool. The pool is setup so that you can all of it from wherever you are so for people with children who can swim it's ideal to let the get extra confidence while you don't have to be in the pool sat right next to them for the whole holiday (looking forward to this time). The pool area needs a good deep clean. Over the time we have visited its just got worse and completely unnecessarily. Don't get me wrong we've not seen people ill so its chemically clean, just not visually as good at it used to be and that was one of the parts we always spoke of. It does get a clean most mornings but I am talking about the broken or missing tiles in the baby pool and just the general need of a scrub where the tiles/filter areas are becoming water stained.... This should be a scheduled maintenance task and would take very little time to re-introduce. Sunbeds can be hit and miss, some need replacing altogether and we had one or two days where all were reserved with towels before we could get some. This happens and we accept it but it's not great to reserve and then not use AT ALL anytime during the day. Rubbish around the pool is left by the people too lazy to get off their seats and put it in the many bins on the site (regularly emptied too). This will never be the fault of the hotel but the few guests who seem to be in every two week break. The waterpark is heavily mentioned (positively) by everyone so I wont offer comment too much other than to say it could also do with a really good deep clean and general tidy up. Restaurant/Food This is served in the main restaurant area or where this is not open (outside of main meal times) there is a pool bar serving typical holiday snacks (burgers, pizzas and anything that goes with chips - order from the menu, wait a short time and it arrives at your table). In the restaurant the food is buffet style, themed and plentiful. We love the food here - there is always something for everyone and given the hotel is catering all inclusive for multiple nationalities I cant see what they could improve on. We've genuinely loved it this time (and we confidently ate the fish, prawns, salmon, sardines and mussels - all of the things people are normally wary of). Need to balance the restaurant part also though as it could very easily be better again - in previous afternoons - there was a time when restaurant staff walked around the pool serving fresh fruit - this was brilliant - a real nice, simple touch but which has sadly disappeared along with basic restaurant standards I'm afraid...which should definitely be put back in place. There was a time when swimwear/wet clothes in the restaurant was a no-no but now it appears anything goes. We don't go on holiday to be policed in any part of our time but basic standards to ensure all enjoy should be in place. A wet tiled floor, children and glass and crockery all over the place is not ideal. Please bring it back in where swimwear is not allowed in the restaurant. A few moans from people will be very easily offset by others being happy to have basic rules. Bars/Drinks Everything is served so long as its local. The spirits are strong and the beer (Keo) is cold. I have no complaints whatsoever : )) A couple of the bar staff are brilliant. Others are okay. The bars serve everything you can imagine as well as the kids milkshakes, ice creams and cocktails. Entertainment Oh where to start..... Every day and night is filled with a programme advertised in a few places around the site. Anis leads the entertainment team and is on resort from 7ish AM and for many nights is still there at Midnight, he just works and works and works. Anis is supported by Fanny and Laszlo. Fanny looks after the kids club and is a natural with them. Our kids who didnt go all the time at first then couldn't wait to be with her. They have a separate air conditioned room but regularly do activities by the beach and in the pool. Laszlo looks after the day time activities... from midday there is always something on like killer darts or table tennis competitions (adults and children included - Laszlo's rules apply). Then after lunch there is water volleyball, water aerobics, a daily quiz, water polo and water volleyball. In the evening is when the team come back together to kick things off with the kids disco, bingo and the night time entertainment. Between them they have a few shows which they deliver themselves and they also bring in outside acts also. Blues Brothers by far the best from the outside ones. You'll read many reviews about all of the team but this combination of just the 3 of them is the best by a long way. Anis takes time to meet as many people as he can...and helps create some very unique and great holiday memories, he has his own special way and its brilliant to just watch him work - he's always got his mind on everyone and watches out for people continually - by name too (his TunFrenchGlish language can be just as fun). Fanny and Laszlo are better this year than last (and last year I really liked them). Laszlo is loved by everyone just because of how he is with everyone - he's one of the nicest personalities you could ever meet and is now the official boyfriend of our two year old. Fanny likewise is also so very genuine, she has a dry sense of humour which balances very well with her giving trust when your children are in mainly her care. 16 hours minimum a day, 7 days a week this team work... all summer long - you each do such an amazing job. I think thats it..... tips - take a 2p piece for the trolleys at the airport. Get out and about in Ayia Napa, the nightlife isnt visible to all unless you're out at 3am but everything is going on. Get on the Nemo boat - brilliant, cheap and a different view. Ask any questions on here if you want my view....I know the place pretty well now and we don't book any more through Thompson/First choiceMore

Just returned from a week long stay at Electra Holiday Village, the place could best be described as average. Average food, accommodation and staff. We were a party of 7. 5 adults , 2 kids. The kids had a great time, the weather was scorching, the kids enjoyed the pool and facilities, the beach was really close but rocky. Sandles needed if you want to wade out or swim. The water park opposite was good fun but limited. The only blot on that book was when someone took a dump in the wave pool and the staff evacuated the pool (a little like the person, who left us a large parcel) if I'd paid for the pool I would've been livid. There was however a few gripes the adults had. We did book rooms to be together but ended up in different blocks. We also paid for an extra day for the use of a room to enjoy, due to the flight times back. We had the room up till 7pm only to be turfed out of the room by rude housekeepers demanding to be let in. We went to check out and complain only to be met with an over worked receptionist, so no joy. In my humble opinion this hotel could do with a bit more courteous staff members, especially the housekeepers. Definitely needs a look at the maintenance, a few hours without water, cold sometimes, broken toilet seat, broken chairs and some slipply floors could be some minor issues to some but could be dangerous if left.More

Brilliant Holiday - Highly Recommend
We booked Electra last October 2014 and was very apprehensive as we have never done an all inclusive holiday (always here horror stories especially about the food)! We arrived early hours on 3rd August (my husband, 12 year old daughter and myself). First impressionsâ¦reception very clean and staff welcoming. I have read peoples comments on trip advisor and am honestly âgobsmackedâ at the criticismâ¦especially the silly ones eg there were ants around! Seriously? I have ants where I live! As a family, this is what we felt about our recent 2 week break at Electraâ¦ ACCOMMODATIONâ¦we had a one bedroomed appt and was pleasantly surprised when I saw a single bed in the main living area (usually in other hotels/appts the bed is a couch!). Yes, if I was going to be picky I would say the kitchen is a little outdated but clean. It has a microwave and 2 piece hobâ¦but heyâ¦I didnât intend to do any cooking being on holiday and in an all inclusiveâ¦it had a kettle and a fridgeâ¦what more could you ask for! As for Housekeeping, our Cleaner was very friendly and very thoroughâ¦always had clean sheets etcâ¦couldnât fault herâ¦as a goodwill gesture we left a little pressie for her to say âthank youââ¦she worked really hard bless her, and always had a smile on her face. FOOD & DRINKâ¦The food was excellentâ¦you had the choice of the restaurant and/or the snack barâ¦you could eat all day long if you wanted! My only advice is to shed a few pounds before going away because the food is so lovely we actually gained weight come the end of the holiday lol. The staff were always on the go, refilling food trays, clearing tables etc and also friendly. Iâm a vegetarian and was worried that there wouldnât be a huge selection for meâ¦how wrong I was! Even if there is something there that you donât likeâ¦the chef will knock you up something. They also had a good selection of food in the childrenâs cornerâ¦you never go hungry. Drinks are also available all day long. ï ENTERTAINMENTâ¦The entertainment staff were excellentâ¦The kids club was brilliantâ¦not that we did it but we did join in with the mini disco lol. Fanny, Laszlo and Annis were greatâ¦always made you feel welcome and took time out to speak to you. My daughter thought they were also great and had a good laugh with them. Entertainment was for everyone, children to adultsâ¦always something going on daily. I have seen criticism on trip advisor about the entertainment staffâ¦I am shocked at some commentsâ¦Annis went out his way to make sure everyone was happyâ¦he would do anything for youâ¦ in fact they all wouldâ¦Laszlo was great in getting people involved which was a fab ice breaker for people to get to know each other. Fanny was not only fantastic with the children but also the adultsâ¦so much so that I promised to give her my bingo dabbers lol (which I did). I just hope that they will be there next year (the entertainment staff and not the dabbers haha). ï SUNBEDSâ¦.Yes, some were a little tatty but with a towel on top you wouldnât even know. I have had several holidays in Cyprus, usually staying in Protarasâ¦I would never go back to Protaras (although it is lovely donât get me wrong). Usually abroad I have several arguments with those dreaded flies! I even took my fly swat with me lolâ¦I can honestly say I only saw about 5 flies during my two week holiday at Electraâ¦so pleasant not to be fighting flies all day lolâ¦no flies even when eating your foodâ¦bliss. I would highly recommend staying at Electra Villageâ¦we are returning next yearâ¦and the rest of our family and friends are also joining usâ¦canât wait. As my hubby saidâ¦âI say Ayiaââ¦âyou sayâ¦.â NAPA See you next year :) ïMore
