“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We visited the Hotel during September 2012, and I have to say that the entire experience just amazed us a lot.The hotel is in excellent location, and designed beautifully, but the most important factor is the service given in the various restaurants and bars. The overall experience is just spot on, the food is lovely, and reasonably priced compared to the sorroundings, and the whole organisation looks extremely organised. I would like to send my regards, and special thanks to Mr. Ioannis Demenegas, the F&B director, whose constant attention on us made us feel special and welcomed, he and his staff went out from their way to please us.
I defenetly reccomend this hotel to everyone whose searching for a true 5star experience, hope to see you again soon!

My wife and I got married here in 2008, what can I say, it was fantastic, a proper 5 star experience, and despite us and our friends being a scruffy bunch of idiots, we were welcomed and ultimately given free run of the place.

We were married on the grassy area between the pool and the beach which was a lovely setting, and it felt like there was little that couldn't be done for us.

Absolutely fantastic. The honeymoon suite with whirlpool bath etc was a very nice touch. Spectacular views out onto the Med.

Food was great as you would expect, the wine and song flowed freely, and we had a great time.

This hotel is in the Amathus area which is about 3km from the main drag in Limassol, this is a positive thing, as you're away from the horns, revs and mopeds!

(I've had to put February 2012 as the visit date as this is the earliest it would let me - our trip was May 2008)

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is fantastic, but the standard sea view rooms are great as well.

I have stayed at the hotel for a single night.
At 8:30 In the morning we were surprised by the person that checks the mini bar
as he entered the room with out even knocking. I am embarrassed to mention details.

As we have arrived very late in the previous night we have kindly requested an extension
of 3-4 hours at the hotel so as we could enjoy our late meal at one of their restaurants.

Receptionist/front desk replied in a very arrogant manner that late check out could be by 14:00 thus for the additional hour and a half requesting I should pay 50 EURO.
Forgot to mention that I have visited the beach resort hotel at the end of November where
in the morning breakfast they were no more than 10 hotel guests (i.e. the hotel was empty).

This hotel also needs a serious renovation.

This year in Cyprus we were blessed with Russian tourism. That unusual pick of tourism in a period of world crisis made certain hotels not really caring on servicing the local market. A 5 star hotel is not made only by the amenities and the required square meters needed but also service levels, politeness and discretion of staff should count.
It makes me sad when I do face in my own country hotels that have such low quality standards.

Very friendly and efficient Staff and lovely gardens leading down to a tempting beach. The rooms are spacious and clean and all the facilities are there if one has time to use them. Breakfast can be taken either indoors or outdoors and has enough to offer. The Restaurants look tempting, sadly did not have time to experience them. Certainly a hotel to select, if one is in that area

Room Tip: A room on the Garden side, would of course be best.

i just got back from my 4 day stay in the hotel. the weather was perfect which made the atmospher by the pool fun between music and bartenders in the cafe next to the pool and all the sunbathing and enjoying the beach atmosphere too. as of the night i didnt experience many of the places but i went to ethinic (i think thats what it was called) and has a slight glimpse of teh live chinese cooking. in the restautant, the food was nice and light and the music was soft and enjoyable and i was to have a conversation with a friend of mine at the same time. the last two nights i was at the bar and the ladies there were very friendly and approachable and the music was again soft yet enjoyable. i took a massage which i recomend you treat your senf to. the reseption was good, they were friendly and helpfull. the room i was in was spacious and comfortable but sadly near constuction which didnt really affect me except for morning coffee.
all in all i recomend staying there. it is defineny worth it.

Room Tip: do not choose ground floor... first floor and above

The grand resort is at the very west side of Limassol, close to other big hotels. You definitely need a taxi to the town though nowadays bus number 30 takes you there from the old port for just one euro. The hotel is alright but definitely not a five star hotel. The rooms especially need some serious renovation. Staff are friendly though and breakfast and buffet lunch are really good.

From the outside this hotel looks lovely and indeed as you arrive in the reception you are greeted by polite staff, big open spaces with the required plush looking sofa's, water feature and large plants that one would expect from a hotel of this type.

The room itself was spacious, we had the 'family' option for our 2 daughters and were disappointed to discover that this just meant 2 camp beds made up for them leaving no free space to move around in. Our bed was enormous and very comfortable. We assumed we would be having inter-connecting rooms, but this was not the case, and definitely something I would request if I came again? All of the required facilities you would expect on here in the rooms, but the rooms are now looking and feeling a little tired, but everything was very clean, and the 'house keeping' staff very kind and accommodating.

The food in the hotel was very good, fresh and in abundance. We ate in the restaurant by the pool, and although quite expensive, the portions were huge and you could easily share! We ordered in room service one afternoon too, and that was equally good and arrived very promptly by more kind staff.

The pool facilities are nice - I think the pool could be larger for the size of the hotel, wouldn't want to be there in peak season. It's position next to the sea was pleasant and there is an abundance of sun loungers to choose from. Toilet and changing facilities are also very good and clean by the pool, so you could quite happily use these on your day of departure should you need to vacate your room ahead of your flight. - On that subject, the hotel has a very reasonable 12pm checking out policy and they were happy to accommodate that even further to 2pm, which was very helpful to us.

Room Tip: There is no real added benefit to paying for a seaview room, the Inland view was equally interesting...
