My partner and I paid just under £2000 for a weeks stay, all inclusive at this complex in September. When we arrived, we were shown to what can be only be described as an under-ground hovel. Apparently it was a 'garden room'. Well, as it was under ground with no windows apart from look at a wall I cannot say... More

Yes, it maybe needs a bit of TLC, and some sheets and towels were past their best, but for the money, me and my daughters (15 &12) were more than happy. It is a Greek 3*, which probably means 2* British equivalent. When we go abroad, we expect to be served foreign food, makes it quite exciting. All inclusive gives... More

Me and my partner went for a 10 day last minute holiday here, we decided to go all inclusive as I had never done it before and thought it'd be easier/cheaper etc. Well... it has put me off ever trying all inclusive again, the food was terrible, I didn't know what half of the stuff was, we went out and...

I think he may have forgotten that we actually paid to stay there! We were paying for his service which was appalling, it was plastic glasses until after... More

Returned from this hotel last week. Had we been staying 2 weeks, we would have asked to change hotels as other people tried to do. All the negative comments written are absolutely true. Tired buildings unless you are in the annexe, smelly bathrooms, disgusting, tatty towels, uninspiring and unimaginative food, attitudes of waiters, etc, etc. Not a good place for... More

Located in a silent area in Kato Guves, the club has the advantage of consisting of more constructions covering a quite large surface, thus one will not feel a burdensome and crowded atmosphere. The buildings are disposed near the three big pools and are separated by alleys plenty of greenery and flowers. Being far from the beach is not a... More

Returned this week from a week's stay. Where to start? Positives: 3 great pools. Negatives: Room was tired, needed a spruce up. Bedding as mentioned in other reviews needed renewing. Towels were grey and only changed 3 times in a week. Food, well we did have one fantastic day, both lunch and dinner, however on this day we also noticed... More

Just come back from a week's stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time; the room was large, even for 4 people; towels and sheets were changed regularly. The food was fine, and was varied. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beach is a 20 minute walk away; that's why they provide a shuttle minibus. The bottom line - you get... More

This hotel is an absolute disgrace. All inclusive if you like mushy veg and dodgy meat every night. The resturant was a health and safety nightmare, filthy would not even come close! So we ate out every morning, lunch and evening meal. The rooms were old and dirty. The towels were changed 3 times in 2 weeks. We complained after... More

Roula N, Manager at Club Lyda Hotel, responded to this review

We as the management team of Lyda Club are very sorry to read that review. However there is one thing we would like to point out for everyone to know. If things were as dirty and bad as you describe then with the number of accomodations this year exceeding 50000 in our hotel, there would be at least 2000 cases... More
