Riu Cypria Maris Hotel The Riu Cypria Maris is a four star hotel in Paphos, Cyprus. The children will be sharing an en-suite room in threes. Staff rooms are situated at either end of the corridor where the children are located. Children will be given the room number and room telephone contact number of Mrs. Sutton and Miss Mckee. This year we are on an All Inclusive basis. Breakfast and dinner are a choice from the hotel buffet. A packed lunch will be provided by the hotel on Thursday and Friday, pupils will need to bring their own packed lunch on Wednesday.
Swimming pool We have access to the swimming pool for an allocated period of time on the first day. During this time the hotel is providing us with a lifeguard and three school staff will be on poolside as spotters. Children will only be allowed in the pool in supervised groups and when the lifeguard is present. Non-swimmers will need to wear buoyancy aids. Children will only be allowed to swim in the allocated areas outlined by the teachers – even if they would normally swim across the whole pool on a family basis. All children are expected to follow safety guidelines.
Pocket Money The maximum amount we believe the children will need is 20. There is a gift shop at the hotel where the children will be allowed to buy a small souvenir. There will also be some opportunities to purchase ice creams and some soft drinks. Children will be responsible for looking after their own pocket money which should be in a clearly named wallet or purse.
Behaviour We expect that all children will have good manners and will be courteous at all times to the people they come into contact with during the trip. It is particularly important that the children listen well and behave responsibly during adventure activities and swimming times. If at any time we feel that a childs behaviour is endangering themselves or others we have the option of contacting parents and asking them to collect them and take them home. NB: If any children cause damage to other guests or their property parents are liable for the payment of the damage.
