“Good times in Larnaka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is very nice located, 15min away from the centre of Larnaka, by the beach. The hotel it self is good, but what I really liked was the location (30 steps away from the beach), the warm and calm water of the sea and the friendly staff. Everyone from the reception to the restaurant, to Matheo's pool bar is very kind and friendly. It's very good for families with children with the nice pool and the beach so close to the hotel. The rooms aren't amazing but still nice. Every night there's a different theme and buffet in the restaurant, good prices and food. If you're looking for relax and nice holidays at the beach in Cyprus this is a very good option!

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.

Room Tip: Pool & sea view
