“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

This year was the my first time to the Golden Bay with my partner.

I have been staying here for almost 20 years, since I was 5 with my parents.

I wanted to take my partner to have a luxurious end to our holiday as I always remembered it. As always the service was great. We had a mini-suite in which we shared a large open area & jacuzzi with other rooms. Though its always quiet out here. We decided to use the jacuzzi one night & didnt know how. Reception had a maintenance man up in less that 5 minutes to run us through it & fill it for us.

Over the years the decor has changed but most of the staff remain the same & often recognise me & my family which is great. Despite coming here almost every year they always offer great service with very few problems. Cant wait to go again though as someone else mentions that wont be till feb 2011 due to a refurb of rooms & some areas. I look forward to the new rooms.

We have now completed 27 years where we have stayed at The Golden Bay Beach Hotel for up to three weeks each year and receive such a warm welcome from all members of staff, without exception, it is like a home from home.
The hotel has a very high standard of accommodation, spotlessly cleaned daily, and provides all the facilities of a five star hotel. There is a great vareity of top quality food and wine available in the restaurants with the choice of table service or buffet, with many themed evenings that you can attend.
There are plenty sunbeds and umbrellas available both in the gardens/at poolside and for hotel guests on the sandy beach alongside the warm sea.
During our stay this year, with no effect on the service provided to guests in the hotel, we witnessed a Cypriot wedding reception in the gardens for five hundred prominent guests sitting down to dinner at fifty tables of ten. This proves beyond any doubt of the reputation The Golden Bay has in Cyprus itself and why, like ourselves, many guests look forward to returning each year.

Dear guest,

It has been a joy having you for so many years, and we look forward to the next 27 years ahead.

Your "second home" appreciates your loyalty and anticipates your next visit... where you should consider renewing your vows here since you have enjoyed witnessing the traditional Cyprus wedding =)

See you next year, take care until then.

I always stay here when on business. All the staffa first class, courteous & efficient.
It's due for a renovation from November 10 - February 2011. I hope they retain all the same staff when it re-opens.
Keep up the good work.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. It's location and pool are just wonderful and the sandy beach right in front is very nice. They offer all kinds of watersports as well as rentals of jet skis and boats.
The staff is absolutely friendly and extremely helpful. I participated in a conference and needed to set up electronic equipment outside.
The staff went out of their way to assist me.
The hotel is an older model, but still clean.
The restaurants are fantastic with great local food and very good wine selection.

Another wonderful summer break for all the family.

As usual all members of the family had a relaxing and enjoyable time, as did the numerous families who return every year.

Mini Suites in the hotel are due to be refurbished over this coming winter, next year should be even better than normal.

My big complaint about the Golden Bay is that we only stayed there for 5 nights, we really wished that we could have stayed longer. Everything about the hotel was first class, staff, food and drinks. Knowing that the hotel is to close shortly for a refurbishment, wild horses will not keep us away in the future. Wether you are 5 or 55 the Golden Bay has a great deal to offer for the discerning holidaymaker. Thank you Golden Bay for a fantastic stay!!
