“A most enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Just returned from a seven-night stay at the Palm Beach.

We stayed in the Bungalows, which are situated to the right of the main entrance to the hotel, and are accessed by a path through the gardens. The bungalows are very well-appointed and comfortable, and at the end of September, were very quiet and peaceful, sometimes having the pool are all to ourselves. We had a ground-floor room, so could walk in and out at leisure (but had to keep the patio door shut to keep out the local cats!). If you like peace and solitude, the Bungalows will suit you. The Pool Bar was never open during our stay, but perhaps would be at peak periods.

Our rooms were scrupulously cleaned and towels changed on a daily basis. Beach towels are also provided. Tea and coffee-making facilities were provided in our room, but were not replenished by Housekeeping - we had to ask at Reception, but they were then quickly provided for us.

The main hotel is perfectly situated on the beach, in fact the narrow strip of beach is almost part of the hotel, with sunbeds and parasols freely available for hotel guests, and the b\each Boys will give any help to arrange them for you. Very convenient, and the sea is warm, shallow and very good for swimming due to the constructed sea-breaks which make it almost like a lagoon. We didn't use the main pool area, the adjacent sunbathing areas or beach bars, as we spent our sunbathing time lazing around the Bungalow pool area, but there always seemed to be plenty of sunbeds for everybody. We also didn't use the small indoor pool, squash court or gym, but they looked good.

Breakfast is buffet-style, with friendly staff serving hot drinks, and you can sit inside or outside. There are the usual hot and cold breakfast items, with omelettes cooked to order and eggs being fried throughout breakfast service.

We stayed on a half-board basis and, apart from a carvery evening presented in the Omega restaurant, buffet meals were served in an outdoor restaurant next to the main swimming pool. Whilst the food was generally quite good and varied, it was often not really hot enough, due to being served and eaten outside. Each evening had a different theme (Mediterranean, Italian, Cypriot etc) which was a nice touch. Vegetarians, fish-eater and meat-eaters are all catered for, except perhaps on the seafood night, where almost every cold/salad dish and main course contained fish of some sort!

There are several lounges and bar, and low-key entertainment, usually during evening meal-service. There is also free wi-fi in the main building, which we could even access on the beach! We used this on a tablet, and our mobile phones, and also on a netbook which we had to take for my husband's business use. There are also fixed computers for which a charge is made, which doesn't seem unreasonable.

The buses to Larnaca and Agia Napa leave from right outside the hotel, and are very cheap (single journey 1.5 euro, day ticket 5 euro). If you want to go further afield, you really need to hire a car, or take a taxi. There are reasonably-priced boat trips from Larnaca Marina.

The hotel staff were very warm, friendly and helpful, and made our stay very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Bungalows are well-appointed and in a quiet location.

Dear Janet,

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write up a review.
I am very pleased to see that you liked our bungalows, as well as the overall facilities. It is true that this year some nights were more breezy and had to move in the indoors restaurant our theme nights earlier than usual. With regards to the fish night, yes you are correct that all items are fish items. We do, on request, a meat plate for anyone who does not like fish, so next time please do let us know!!
We hope to see you back to the Palm Beach soon.

Best regards,

Enjoyed staying here so muchbin July 2013 we decided to return for a late summer break.
Again we arrived to the hotel in the early hours of the morning due to our flight schedule.
We were warmly greeted by the night porters who recognised us from our last trip.
We were very happy to find that due to the hotel being full, we had been upgraded to a bungalow.
The bungalows are pooled together in its own private area but still close to all of the hotel amenities

Our bungalow was on the 1st Floor.

For any of you that have walking difficulties please ve aware that there is a steep ramp to climb to access the first floor!!

You can request one on the ground floor.

The bungalows are definitely bigger than the hotel rooms, have a sofa & coffe table situated in the same room as bed but divided off by a half wall. The balcony is spacious and has a table & 4 chairs. The bungalows overlook a pool that has a swim up bar but unfortunately it was closed and so we only used the main pool.
Another nice surprise was a gift of wine and fruit in our room.
Our stay was as lovely as our first visit and we intend to return.
There are enough bars, restaurants & small grocery stores close to the hotel. The hotel also offers themed food nights.

If you want a livelier night, Larnaca main town is only 7km away. It costs 1.5 Euros one way on bus (stop is right outside hotel), or a taxi costs 11 Euros one way and there is a taxi company based inside hotel grounds.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Dear friends,

Thank you for staying with us again for the second time in 2013. We loved having you back. I am pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay in a garden bungalow as well. By the way, the pool was never closed, only the bar was closed in late September/ October.
I hope to see you again soon.

Best regards from warm & sunny Larnaka.

We returned to this hotel last month for the first time in 5 years, having visited probably 10 times in all. We keep coming back because the location suits us and the staff are outstanding. In a business of high staff turnover, the Palm Beach retains a large proportion of their staff who remember their previous clients and make them very welcome all over again. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We always go seaview but if you retire early ask for the end away from the bar.

We are British Greek Cypriots living in London and we go to Cyprus every year but we have never stayed at the Palm Beach Hotel but we always wanted to and we are so happy that we finally managed to spend 7 nights here, we arrived at 11.50 pm on sat 14 Sept and the night staff were expecting us and our room was ready.
We had a wonderful stay and we will definitely return !!! The most important reason we will return to this hotel is the very hard working wonderful staff that treated us so well !!! A Special thank you to Mihalis and Zaharoulla who greeted us every morning with lovely smiles and had time to talk to us and make us feel very welcome. In fact all the staff were very pleasant but there was too many to get to know them all.
The rooms were a good size with a minibar and tv and safe and a good size bathroom and balcony everything was lovely and clean and the rooms were cleaned every day which is important. Although the rooms are definitely dated and in need of being refurbished.

The Pool and the grounds of the hotel were lovely and it had its own beach as well, the food offered at lunch time was varied and plentiful and the staff from the beach boys to the waiters were all lovely.
Even though we did not eat at the hotel in the evening, we did notice that the menus were excellent and varied and there was a different theme menu and entertainment every night.

A message to the management
We believe the Hotel Rooms could do with being refurbished to make this hotel top class !!!
And please don't charge people to use the computers to check their emails, we didn't have a laptop with us and we only wanted to check our emails but were told it would cost us 5 euros for 5 hours to use the hotel computers !!! Who wants to spend 5 hours on a computer when they are on holiday? Obviously with the economy in Cyprus being very difficult and running costs being expensive, if you have to charge to use the hotel computers why not charge one euro for one hour?
Anyway these are minor problems that can be corrected

All in all this is an Excellent Hotel with wonderful staff and we will definitely return !!!
Thank You All At Palm Beach !!!

Dear Paul and Andria,

Thank you for staying with us this time!!
I am pleased to hear that you had a wonderful stay. I am pleased to see that you liked our staff too.
We are planning to make renovations in the rooms in the near future. All of our bungalows and suites have been done and we will do rooms next. With regards to the internet use it has been a huge increase in demand and usage. We have a very good service, free in the public areas chargeable in the rooms. We will look into making arrangements for shorter internet usage for quick e-mail checking.
I look forward to seeing you again at the Palm Beach.

Best regards,

We come just for a week to Cyprus every year and have stayed at the Palm Beach for the past 3 years. The staff are friendly and welcoming and remember us and what we like and generally make us feel like part of the family. All the facilities and staff are first class and we couldn't ask for more. The food is excellent and the special evenings are very entertaining. We will be returning next year.

Highly recommended for any traveller to Cyprus. Very friendly staff especially the waiters at breakfast and of course Steve who looks after the garden, beach chairs and pool. If ever we can come to Cyprus again that is definately where we will stay.
