“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I'm writing this review with one day after i came home...i still feel sorry that i left.Every thing was perfect, starting with the room wich was verry spacios for two adults with a baby, verry luxurios with every thing that you need. The food was varied and good, the restaurant had a great sea view. The kids program was fine with many activites, the pool area was the perfect place to rest, not to much noise, a great beach with a clean sea, same watter sports for who likes more adrenaline.
The personal was very frendly and helpful, there was very careful to the details and they knew how to make us happy.
I wish to came back here again in the next future!
Congratulations!!!

Room Tip: Choose a minisuite room, is spacios for three persons an has a jacuzzi too!

The hotel is situated among the best line of hotels in Larnaca. The rooms are very cosy, large, very clean, good service. The food is buffet style and you can choose from a variety of dishes including different types of cheese. The waiters from the buffet are a bit confused if you ask something "out of the ordinary" (hot milk for example). Downside - like many other hotels in Cyprus, they charge you for the internet with 6 euro per day which is totally lame. Please don't forget to take a charger adapter if you are European. It was a British colony therefore they have the wrong plugs and they do not always have charge adapters at the reception. P.S. there is a restaurant across the hotel with a big sign that says Free Internet! :))))

I am writing this review on behalf of my mother in law and her 3 sisters (a company of total 4 ladies in the ages of 68-78). They stayed one week in this hotel (last week) and had a great time in any aspect. First they mentioned the high level of service - any employee of the hotel they came across was helpful, polite, kind and did his/her best to assist. They got all the requests made during the reservation (connected rooms, high floor, rooms facing the sea). My mother in law celebrated her birthday during the stay at the hotel and was spoiled with complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and fresh fruit plate and a very nice greeting card. On top of this, the flight back home was delayed from noon till mid of next night. The hotel extended their stay at the room till 6pm also complimentary. Very good location - hotel is on the shore - from the pool, out through the gate and at the beach. From the hotel door there's a public bus going to the city center every 30 or 45 minutes (short drive). The rooms are very clean, very comfortable, air conditioned and equipped with flat TV. They stayed on HB basis – very rich buffet with variety of dishes. All 4 hope to get back to this hotel for another vacation. Haven't tried the spa so can't comment.

we stayed at this hotel in june 2013, there were three of us in one room, It was clean and big enough for the three of us. the shower was very weak, and i found the bed very uncomftable and hard.we had a side sea view which was very nice. the breakfast was plentiful and varied, and you could have as much as you wanted, pool area very clean and modern, and most of the staff were very helpful and friendly. lovely lady who served at the bar inside the hotel. there is a small shop which sells clothes shoes and swim wear books mags and sweets, the lovely julie who owns it is so friendly, lovely lady. unfortunatly my sister had an accident quite late at night and i had to get her to the local hospital, the night staff were so rude and unhelpful, i wish i got the name of the man who spoke to us like we were wasting his time, he was so rude.we made our own way without his help, i will not be going back to this hotel because of him. he ruind an otherwise very pleasant stay. the hotel management should send him on a course on how speak to people who have paid a fortune to stay at their hotel!! so all in all, if you need help at night, dont bother the night staff, sort it out yourself as you will get a no help what so ever. other than that horrible experience, the hotel was good, wont go there again, i want to feel safe when im away from home, that mans couldnt care less attitude put me off.

Room Tip: can only comment on my room, which was very big and clean,

Golden Bay Beach hotel is the luxurious and definitely the best hotel in Larnaca, if not island wide. With vast of services it boosts a big lagoon like swimming pool and lots of sun loungers to enjoy your drink and the sun, and few steps further you step into the golden sandy beach of Larnaca.
For your culinary experience there is a pool terraced restaurant serving a la card menu of tasty salads, fresh fish and burgers and light meals, or you can choose the buffet lunch which has nearly everything. Prices are cheap compared to service and quality of the food.
The Golden Bay mojito is among the best cocktails you will ever taste. i travel a lot and stay in lots of luxury hotels. But Golden Bay will stay always on my top 5 list. give it a try, even for a quick cocktail or for lunch and dinner. You will remember me!

Room Tip: the direct sea view/pool view room.

My first time to Cyprus and this hotel provided me with great hospitality and warm services. They have beautiful pools within the hotel facing beach. The hotel is situated in a very silent corner of Cyprus so you can expect peace at this hotel. Mostly all the rooms are facing beach. the staff is very nice and the breakfast is usually busy so you can expect not great attention. Rooms are clean stocked with good amenities. hotel is 15 mins drive from the busy shopping street. i would recomment this hotel if you looking for a peace.
