“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

I do not agree with the comments made on here about the Sandbeach. We got married in Cyprus in 2007 and have stayed at the hotel year after year due to the friendly staff, views, food atmosphere etc. Yes the bathrooms are small but that would never spoil any holiday for us. We adore the owners and the rest of the family who could not do more for you and i certainly am never ready to leave by the end of the holiday. Leon and Chris make the place and welcomed us from the very first time we stayed. When we got married they made our day very special and will always be classed to us as very good friends. We have never had any issues with mosquitos!!. There are many pubs and restaraunts nearby and the centre is a 20 minute walk away which is a lovely stroll in the evening. My son is 13 and has been many times. He loves the fact that there is no pool and why would it be needed when you can just walk straight in to the sea?? Ideal location for any family or couple and i will always recommend this hotel to anybody due to the family that run it and make your stay memorable. You will always get the odd one moaning but is there not one of them in every hotel all over the world?? Dont let the negative things said deter you. The fact it is so close to the airport is a bonus for us as our son loves planes and the noise is not as bad as made out to be!! If i could go every year i would. Go and enjoy :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view. Its fabulous. The rooms with a sea view also have a balcony

We were only going to be staying one night but then had to book another due to a change of circumstances. The location is perfect, you get what you pay for. It doesn't have a pool but you basically walk into the see when going out the back. There is only a few more places to stay in this area which we checked out and found that we had chosen the best place. (We drove over from the North looking to stay in the McKenky Beach area).
The breakfast in standard european style. We bought lunch on one occasion which was nice, we enjoyed it. But if there's nothing to you taste on there menu then that's no problem as your surrounded by bars/restaurants. We would happily go back for another nights stay or for the weekend. The AC could have been a bit colder during the day times. Basically you get what you pay for, standard prices considering the location and the cost of other accommodation in that area. The view from our big balcony was lovely and also when eating in the restaurant. Great area/location, good no frills hotel - for the price you shouldn't expect the Ritz anyway!

This hotel was recommended to me based on the proximity to the airport. I was told the view was great, and the bathrooms are small. That was kind of an understatement. The bathrooms are literally converted closets that I (at only 5'10" and 115lbs) had trouble even fitting into. The air conditioning units barely cooled the room down, and are not usable until 7pm. The hotel interior looks like it hasn't been touched since the 1950s. On a positive note, the views are fantastic, the price is reasonable, the room was pretty clean (stained sheets) and the staff was friendly. No elevator, so be prepared to lug your bags up the stairs. There's WiFi, but only in the lobby. Overall, I absolutely could not wait to get out of there and back to the airport. This hotel is pretty much on par with an average hostel, and I would only recommend it for short overnight stays if you need a place near the airport. It has potential based on the location, but would need some major updating.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and the only hotel in Larnaka that did not get a bad review on Tripadvisor, because it had gotten no reviews until now. Yes, it is close to the airport and right on the beach. You can fall asleep to the waves gently lapping on the beach and wake up the same way, but only if you bring your own screen door or are immune to mosquito bites. It is on the flight path of the airport, although most hotels in this area would be. The rooms are small with dated furniture and usually at night, there were issues with sewage smells. Fortunately we were not there long enough to have it affect our whole vacation. If you want cheap digs for a night or two close to the airport, than you get what you pay for. We found staying in Limassol and driving to the airport (approx 1 hour) just as convenient.
