“Decent holiday hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is a good holiday hotel. It is not 5* by any stretch of the imagination, but on balance, it has more pros than cons. The sandy beach whilst we were there consisted of a scubby patch of compacted turgid coloured sand, probably no more than 2 meters wide in some places. The pool and lounging areas are very nice and the Beach Boys look after you very well. Rooms are not the largest, but they are adequate and fairly decently furnished although I'd have thought flat screen TV's would have been standard these days but we just had an old fashioned model. The carpet was ripped by one of our balcony doors, and the knob that operates the plug in the wash basin was missing which meant prising the plug out with our fingernails. The pillows are definitely the lumpiest I have ever had the misfortune to put my head upon! They charge for internet access in rooms which would stop me using it for business - it's all these little things that turns a good hotel into a great hotel. Staff are generally very pleasant and helpful - with a mention of Marianna on the Front Desk - very professional and helpful, she definitely could be working in a 5* establishment.

We had an a la carte meal in the restaurant one evening which was good if a bit on the expensive side. Otherwise it's the ubiquitous buffet which I'm sorry to say is a pet hate of mine - with people handling the food, sneezing and coughing all over it. The staff hygiene may well be great but who knows about your fellow guests? Breakfast is also buffet style but the turnaround is very rapid and supplies are replenished on a continuous basis, with a good variety of hot & cold dishes. The cleanliness of all areas including the rooms was excellent.

There's a few restaurants, bars and supermarkets outside the hotel on the main road - be wary of the fish restaurant, it was the worst and most overpriced meal we had in Cyprus.A few frozen shrimps, a pile of shredded lettuce, half a tomato and 4 slices of cucumber made up their shrimp salad which cost 12 euros. Vettriano's Italian was a good choice - varied menu, good service and complimentary bits & pieces like fresh fruit and olives. Huge portion of Kleftiko served in individual pot with lots of potatoes and veg for 12 euros put the fish place to shame.

All in all a pleasant hotel that with a bit more attention to detail would have persuaded me to give it a higher rating.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor sea view - I wasn't bothered by ay A/C noise and the views were wonderf...

When we arrived at Palm Beach we were a few hours late, as we had booked half board the hotel gave us a voucher for our missed evening meal. The porter took us to our room, an upgrade to a seaview king room. There was champagne and fruit awaiting us which was a lovely touch.

As we had booked through a wedding company (planet weddings- definitely recommend) all of the wedding things were sorted for us. We met with the food and beverages manager who was brilliant about everything and ensured my meal came with no oil.

Our day was perfect, we ended up getting married in a grassed area because the beach doesnt really have golden sand on (think this is delivered later in season). The staff stayed and this made it even more special. The food was absolutely delicious and better than I could have imagined. After our wedding the staff asked us how it had been and were so helpful with our requests.

Each night they hold a different themed night and again the food is top notch - I didnt see a single chip at tea time meal.

All in all an absolutely fabulous day and a perfect holiday!

I was at this hotel from 17 - 23 May 2014, and was holding a Sales Conference for 40 people for 5 day/nights. Once again it went really smoothly, all the staff are very helpful and polite. Mirela and George in reservations were fantastic and kept up with all the room booking changes being made on a frequent basis. The food was always very good especially the BBQ evening. The refurbished rooms are perfect and the sea view is lovely. The last time we had a conference at this hotel was 5 years ago and due to all of the above we decided to go back there again. I am sure we will return in the future! Its also a lovely hotel for a family holiday

My husband and I stayed here for the first 2 weeks in May 2014 and had a great holiday. The location on the beach was lovely, the hotel and room were spotlessly clean and the lovely ladies who cleaned our room were very polite and friendly. All the staff were lovely, they can not do enough for you and a lot of them have been working there for years. Andy, one of the 'beach boys' was a joy to see everyday, he loves a chat and will tell you everything you want to know about the area. Breakfast was lovely, you name it, you could have it and it was constantly being replenished so hot food was always fresh.

We fell in love with Larnaka town, something for everyone, all the shopping you want, restaurants, bars, cafes and very vibrant. We will certainly stay again

Room Tip: Our room number was 421. Top floor, middle of the hotel with sea view, perfect

Dear Suzanne,

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent holidays in Cyprus. I love to read reviews of two weeks holidays as I believe this gives the chance for a more complete picture or the hotel. I am thrilled to see that you had a great holiday and left our hotel with very positive views and happy memories. I am happy to see that you loved Larnaca, I do too!
I look forward to having you again stay with us at the Palm Beach. We all look forward to that!

Lovely friendly hotel. Free wifi in the main areas only, lots of choice for breakfast, plenty of outside space.Located within easy walking of restaurants & small shops selling a variety of useful holiday stuff. The only thing I found annoying was that the same music was played each evening.

Room Tip: Noisy on the top floor because of the air conditioning. Lovely view on the sea side of the hotel.

Dear Jane,

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel for your recent holidays in Cyprus. We are all delighted to see that you enjoed it!
With regards to the music I would like to advise you that a new D.J. system has been installed throughout all areas of the hotel where different, venue specific music, plays throughout the day with thousands of songs, very interesting and varied. Also, live music now varies on different nights.
We hope to have you back and stay with us again in the near future.

Best Regards from all of us here at the Palm Beach

This is a reasonable hotel. Not worth the price paid. The only really good thing about it is the location on the beach. Our room overlooked inland which was quite drab. Inside the hotel is OK. Rooms are a bit small but OK. Breakfast reasonable.

We have stayed at the Palm Beach on several occasions over the last few years,and the high standards continue to be maintained. They have just completed a major renovation,and the results are stunning,particularly in the Adelphi lounge. The service is excellent from the moment you arrive until the time you leave.In particular I must mention Mirela who was so helpful when we had to change our booking dates, the staff at breakfast and Celia,Christina and Valentina in the Adelphi lounge. The review of 9 February does not describe in any way our experience and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
