“Great location and facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Although slightly outside of Larnaca, it's not difficult to get there by bus or taxi. The hotel has a lovely pool, including an indoor pool and whirlpool. There is also a kiddie pool and separate water slide. The hotel is on the beach with hotel sunbeds and umbrellas. The beach has watersport options.

Room Tip: ask for a room near the sea side and not facing the road. The rooms are quieter and have a better vi...

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. It is always important to receive comments and thoughts, allowing us to make all necessary adjustments to meet your expectations.

Indeed the Hotel is situated directly on the beach, only a 15-minute drive from the Larnaka City Centre. The public bus operates from the Hotel to the Centre on a frequent timetable. Alternatively, as mentioned in your post there is also a private Taxi service available on the Hotel premises.

Thank you for choosing us for your family Holiday resort. We do hope to welcome you all back again during your next trip to Cyprus!

Until then, do keep in touch by following our facebook page “goldenbaycyprus”.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

This 5 star hotel is now showing it's age but is still very comfortable and we enjoyed our two week stay there!
The room had a seaside view but from the side, furniture was showing it's age but still usable, safe in the room was free, mini bar was provided at extra cost.
Room was kept clean and fresh towels everyday with one bed change during our stay.
The food was excellent with a choice of four restaurants, every night was a different theme night with entertainment, drinks were OK, particularly the wine and beer and there was plenty of non alcoholic cocktails to choose from.
Entertainment was good, particularly the karaoke run by David who was the life and soul of the hotel!
On the down side there is no promenade along the beach and the road outside the hotel is very quiet with not much to see during an evening stroll after dinner, having said this it would not stop me staying at this hotel again in the future.
WiFi is free and available throughout the hotel and grounds with good signal.
I was also allowed to keep the room until 7pm on the day of departure at no extra cost which is a definite bonus!
All in all we had a very good holiday at this hotel and would definitely stay again in the future.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days at the end of July 2014.
The hotel is in a great location with all facilities required of a holiday hotel. The food quality was very good.
The hotel is now quite tired, showing its age, but room renovations are in process. After changing to a renovated room the remaining stay was vey good. All staff went out of there way to resolve the initial room issues and their attention to guest satisfaction was second to none.

It must be said Ms Margarita Manoli, Guest Relations officer was excellent in her drive to ensure that guests had a memorable time, including organising a surprise celebration on my birthday. Thank You.

I am writing this review to share a bit a out this hotel. I haven't stayed there to comment on the room bit, but i have tried some of the services, and the outlets.

First of all the food is really bad, their buffet dinners are overpriced for the quality and taste of the food. It really is bad. The chef needs to do some serious work on the food quality. The desserts as well are a big no!
Service is ok, friendly, like everywhere else in larnaca.

Secondly, i had a mani and pedicure appointment, it took me 2 hrs to finish, and the result was horrendous, i could have done a better job! The staff need some serious training.

The place overall needs to be refurbished, the staff are friendly, i guess they need more trainning and a better product to sell.

Amazed with the level of service. They saw when I checked in that it was my birthday and guess what. The next morning, huge cake with my name on it and a bottle of champagne for free. Brought by a lady that spoke my language.

Impressed !

The food was terrible and so was the service. The hotel did not have enough waiters to serve just 75 people the food was slow and cold. Several guest complained directly to the manager who did not seem to care or make any effort to correct the problem. He showed lack of professionalism and lack of any training to handle such functions or even deal with customers.
I hope the owners of the hotel read this and fired the manager if they want to claim to be operating a 4 star hotel.
