We arrived late at night and we found the staff very helpful but that is the only positive comment to be made about this dismal hotel. We had booked a garden room, I did not realise that you could have a garden view from below ground level! Couldn't open our windows at night or sit outside our room because everyone... More

Arrived at Lyda late into the night, the guy who was on reception was helpful, but made no mention of where breakfast would be served or at what time. Got to the room which was very dated. The beds! Oh my god the beds, quite possibly the worse bed I have ever slept in, the pillows were awful and dirty.... More

We stayed in the lyda beach all inclusive hotel for a week at the beginning of September. On arrival we were greeted by another guest checking out who welcomed us with "Welcome to hell". Oh oh, we knew we were in for a treat and it was fulfilled. The rooms are very basic and the beds and pillows are so... More
