Ayia Napa 2015

Sorry, this has taken so long to go up but I'm just a huge procrastinator and put it off for days! I thought I'd make a post all about my first girls holiday to Ayia Napa. Obviously, with this type of holiday, we didn't exactly go to have a relaxing break from work. I still feel like I need another holiday this year to relax, but it doesn't look like that will happen.

Anyway, I went to Ayia Napa and stayed in the Napa Rocks Hotel or Pambos Magic or Magic Napa, it had so many freakin' names it was insane. When we booked this hotel it was being renovated and we were told that when we went it would be done and would be like a completely new hotel. However, when we got there it wasn't fully done. One-half of the hotel was done and looking in the rooms they looked great, the other side was still being done and was still basic rooms. That was the side we stayed on. Our room was gross and on the first night we had to move because our room didn't have a safe. We didn't want to stay in a room without a safe and so we got a new room the next morning. I'm so glad we did because some other people didn't get a safe and got a lot of money stolen!

The hotel was horrible and the staff were so rude!! Our reps were great but the reception staff acted like they hated you, they were vile. However, as it was a Club 18-30 hotel, we were just using it for a bed and to get ready really. The pool was lovely and had been completely renovated (because someone had died in it!!) but there weren't enough sun loungers which bugged me for some reason.

While we were out though we had a great time. On our first night, we got to see Rudimental live which was amazing, although they were only on for about 20 minutes! Oh well, we bought these wristbands which were 250 euro but it was all our events paid for and then we just had to pay for drinks and stuff on the night, it was a good deal and we got to do everything we had wanted to go to like a paint party, foam party and a boat trip.

We also went to an ice bar which is so cool! It only cost us 3 euro on a night out and you have this huge coat because it's so cold. It was so refreshing juxtaposed against the 32 degree heat.

Overall, I had the most amazing time even though I burnt horrendously and had to stay in the room one day while some of the girls went to a pool party. Both of them got ill after the pool party, though so I'm kind of glad I didn't go. I did do something silly though and got a tattoo, oops don't judge! It's not a cheesy "Ayia Napa '15" one though so don't worry.

Would I go back? Maybe. I think I would definitely go on another holiday similar but maybe to a different place as Ayia Napa is one of the most expensive places. We were invited to The Big Reunion in November, no not the Big Reunion you're thinking of. It's basically an indoor festival with lots of house music. So, I'm excited for that.

So there you go, that was my holiday. It was hot, sweaty and involved a lot of shots and cocktails. It isn't the most elegant place to go, but I loved it. I hope you enjoyed reading all about my holiday and if you're going to Ayia Napa I would recommend our hotel because the reps are awesome and the pool is legendary. I also wouldn't because the staff of the actual hotel aren't trustworthy at all and it's still being done up. It's a 50/50 recommendation really!

Have you ever been on a party holiday like this?

Til' next time!XOXO
