Stayed at Lordos twice in Aug 2009 and 2011 and both times we had great time!
The hotel is located outside Larnaca in a little suburb of other hotels and right on the beach. As some reviews point out, the sand is of a darker shade that you would expect, however it is very clean and soft. There are little pebbles near the shore, but none in the water which is very good and you don't feel conscious about stepping on rough surface.
During our stay we occupied two rooms (reception guys gave us connected rooms without even asking us, which was a very nice touch). Both rooms were very spacious, with big comfortable beds and amazing AC! I can be a bit picky and say that the TV was a little dated and some plumbing in the bathroom could be replaced, but I was there to enjoys sunny weather and sea!! You can use mini bar for your own drinks, just ask reception to empty the fridge and we didn't pay extra for it.
Food - we've booked half board basis and did not regret it. The food is versatile and tasty. Some evening there was a themed dinner, such as BBQ and roast, both were very good! We particularly enjoyed a la carte evening, a bit more attention from the waiters and food was of a bit higher standard... in general it was nice to feel pampered:) We had a little problem with finding something to suit the taste of the child, but hotel offered us a kid's menu which was full of chicken nuggets, burgers and chips, so even the most picky eater was very satisfied!
Breakfast was good, english breakfast, continental, fruits.. and fresh pancakes every morning which are cooked right in front of you!
The Staff is very friendly and attentive! Our maid did amazing job, the room was spotless and tidy by the time we returned from breakfast! Towels were changed daily, regardless where we left them. I'm not fussy and can use my towel few times, but it was very nice touch and nothing can replace fresh towel.
The grounds of the hotel are kept clean and tidy, lots of sun loungers and parasols. Beach attendants will help you with them with no fuss at all! The hotel provide you with the beach towels everyday, so no need to pack your own one!
All in all, Lordos is an amazing hotel, with great service and facilities, we would definitely come back!
We stayed on both sides, if you prefer early nigh or have small kids ask for left side. But both sid...
