“Good hotel, nothing wrong with the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

My husband and I stayed here for a week recently on a half board basis. Hotel staff are working very hard and you want to give the resort a rating of 4, but I still think it’s only 3,5, just due to some niggly things, like a bit of maintenance here and there and it looks a bit tired in some corners.
Location of reception was confusing as you would imagine you walk straight on towards the desk when curiously, the front desk was around the corner. Service at reception was never anything less than friendly and efficient.
Large hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. We were lucky to get a room overlooking the pool area but around 10.30 they announce via the loudspeakers what the animation/entertainment team have on each day, which put a stop to lazy lie ins.
Enjoyed the food, though I have to agree breakfast started to get a bit samey. Mind you, there is only so much you can do with breakfast and there was plenty of variety I have to say. Enjoyed the salads the most and the meat at dinnertime was lovely. If you like to try local cuisine, then go and snaffle the food offered on “Cyrpus night” which I think was on Tuesday.
We travelled with Thomson on a package tour and they offer lots to kids, which I thought was great. Not relevant to us, mind, but if you have kids, you got the feeling there would be well looked after.
In the evening, there was entertainment in the downstairs ballroom but I cannot comment as we didn’t go. We went over there for a wedding and were too busy exploring Limassol and the surrounding area. The bars were fine though, but beer cheaper elsewhere.
Sadly, we are not into Karaoke and were put off going to the Nags Head across the road, which is closest to the hotel and would have been ideal. They start singing from 2200, which can be a pain when you want a quiet drink and a natter but it’s horses for courses. Those of you enjoying a sing song will love it I expect. If you also prefer a quieter place, try the Shakespeare Pub. Turn right at the main road/strip and walk on the right hand side towards the town and you can’t miss it, service there was cheerful and attentive.
Back to the hotel: The room was comfortable with nice thick curtains, tiny balcony, bath/shower and a very big, comfy bed. I also liked the flat screen TV. The hotel offers packages, where you can have bits added to your room such as tea and coffee making facilities, fruit and wine but we didn’t take them up on their offer, except for usage of the safety deposit box, which was EUR 12 for the duration. It wasn’t one of those modern ones with digital display and a code but just a plain old, slightly bent key. However, it did the job and our valuables were safe. Our door was slightly unhinged and we had trouble closing it, and then there were issues with the air con.
Little did we know that at the time there was a major explosion on the island which was close to the power station and triggered a powercut. We only found out about the huge scale of the incident when we were on our way back to the airport as the cab driver, whose house was badly damaged, told us about it. The hotel merely apologised that they could not run the air con at full pelt “due to the incident” but didn’t’ go into any detail. I assume they were trying not to spoil our holiday, so really the hotel can’t be blamed for the room temperature being uncomfortable for the last 3 days.
When the air con was working, it only did two things: When you turned it on, it rattled like a heavy smoker so you couldn’t sleep so you turned it off. Once it was off, you couldn’t sleep as the room was too hot. It was a minor irritation that didn’t lead to a sound sleep but can imagine it getting on other people’s wick.
We hired a car for the first time to get to a wedding in Nicosia. Europcar are just yards down the road from the hotel and came recommended by Thomson and had a special offer to boot. Given that we were car hire virgins, we went with them and were happy. We found driving over there surprisingly easy. The Cypriots drive on the left like in the UK, places are well signposted and traffic not as manic as in the UK. You are definitely ‘scared’ into going with Europcar though, and am sure we paid over the odds. There are loads of car hire places along the front, though couldn’t say how reputable they are, depends how brave you’re feeling. Guess you pay for peace of mind.
Limassol itself is a nice resort. It is our second visit and I still like it because there is a certain charm to it. I am not sure what people mean about the location not being nice but the hotel is great. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE AREA. When you get out of the hotel, there are hundreds of bars and restaurant, with the beach across the road (do get the no 30 bus though to drop you off at Amathus beach as it’s much nicer. Yellow brollies are the ones belonging to the public part of the beach; sunbed + brolly EUR 6 for two, plus great service. All other sunbeds seemed to belong to the hotels and we were politely asked to leave after some chap in white chinos and uniform asked if we were staying at the Amathus Beach hotel.
The town itself is undergoing a major tarting up. The marina is being done up as is the old town, so our timing wasn’t great but dictated by the wedding date. I am sure it’ll look stunning when finished and probably a bit too polished for me by then. If you have been to Pafos, then you may be disappointed as it’s less British and polished, but I like Limassol. I was delighted when I found a restaurant again that we discovered when we went to 11 years ago. It’s called Cuckoo’s Nest and is at the end of the pedestrianised bit. I have reviewed this separately. If you like very reasonable, home cooked food and an authentic Taverna, go there.
I haven’t found anything that should be avoided and think Limassol is getting bad press for no reason. It’s what you make it and from my experience, people were friendly and there was no hassle/a bad atmosphere anywhere.
Last top tip, watch the traffic at pedestrian crossings and junctions; if the road is clear, the natives tend to ignore the lights, might catch you out!

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool are quiet but beware of loud announcements around 10 a.m. They do not las...

Late booking, great hotel and excellent food, plenty choice and always hot. All inclusive and drinks good and plentiful. I can recommend the latte just before bed. Entertainment could have been better although the animation team worked tirelessly throughout the week, with both daytime activities and night time shows. Karaoke was on but by the time it was set up, there wasn’t long for people to sing before they were putting it away.

The rooms were spread over about seven blocks, ours was originally in what they called the gardens, we asked to be nearer to the main hotel block and they moved us straight away. The third bed in our room was a camp bed but once they realised an adult would be sleeping on it, they got it changed for a proper single bed, could not do enough for us. There was not a lot immediately around the hotel but there was a good bus route for 2 euro's a day to surrounding towns.
There were good facilities at the hotel, outdoor and indoor pool and an adult only pool, gym, whirlpool, table tennis etc... And wi fi. The kids club appeared very popular and they all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Outdoor bar with a big screen with different film every night.

Yes i would go back and have also looked at that particular group of hotels in different countries.

Room Tip: Would ask for room in main hotel block but other rooms were still great and only a short walk away.

We stayed here with our two girls for 10 days. Have to say we strongly recommend if you go there, do the all inclusive thing as we found it absolutely fab for food and drink. We had cocktails none stop which would usually cost around 7 euros each. The choice on the food menu changed daily and included so much variety. The only thing we would say, is get yourself down to the pool area bright and early to reserve a sun bed as by about 9 am there are limited places left.

ignore all the bad reviews about the complex, it was very nice, cooking area in the apartment needs to be bigger and maybe a microwave added. the resort itself was quiet, a lot of the businesses were for sale or lease, virtually no beach. average price for a local pint was three euros, dinning out can be dear, went for a curry and it cost 70 euros for 2, lots of the restaurants offer a set menu for around £20. prices in the shops vary wildly, for instance a bottle of smirnoff ice was as little as 99 cents in one shop and as much as 2 euros in another, a 2 litre bottle of soft drink was only 54 cents in one supermarket but over 2 euros in another, bread about 1.80 a loaf everywhere, fresh ham from the deli counter was half the price of the processed packets. Hamlet's bar at the far end of the resort is a nice spot for an afternoon drink with lots of offers until 9 o'clock. the local buses are very good 2 euros for a ticket that can be used all day, number 30 takes you from the new harbour (docks, nothing there) to the other end of town all the way along the sea front.

Well me and my partner booked this hotel and after reading the reviews we were a little bit worried, however DO NOT LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS, this hotel was good value for money. We went b&b so was put in the gardens just arcross the way. Yes it may be awkward but for a cheap holiday what do you expect. Even though was b&b we had full use of all facilities inside the main hotel. the indoor pool was fantastic, The breakfast was fantastic a huge selection from your English breakfast to fruit and cereals. Always activities to do in the hotel for everyone. rep on hand to help you plan your trips. Hotel staff friendly and happy to help. Rooms cleaned to good standard. we did get ants in our room but we blame ourselves as we decided to not have our rooms cleaned one day but as soon as we informed reception someone was at our room within half an hour max! if that is not service then i don't no what is. This hotel is very close to restaurants and bars and only a short bus journey costing 2 euro return to the town centre whihc is beautiful must visit. highly recommend going to the Shakespeare restaurant food and staff our the best people you will meet friendly is an understatement. When it was my birthday they gave me a lovely desert and would to close until you were ready to leave. HIGHLY RECOMMEND when i go back cyprus we will be going back to this hotel!!!!!

Room Tip: if you want to be in the hotel go half board minimum

Good points:
- Brilliant pools
- Friendly staff
- Great weather
- Room absolutely spotless
- Outdoor cinema at night, fantastic with cocktails and nibbles!
- Easy bus root ( We went to MyMall and the Old Town)

Bad points:
- We went self catering, decided one night to eat in the restaurant along with all the of all inclusive members, finished our main course and went to get our desert from the buffet, and turned around to find the waiters had cleared our table and an all inclusive couple were being allocated to our seats. We were billed 44 Euro for our meal after being forced out and they also charged us for the full pint and glass of wine that were also cleared from our table! Complained at reception as i felt they were more interested in all inclusive people being seated in the restaurant, we received a free token (not including drinks!) for the next night...
- Beaches are all disappointing, however not as far away from the hotel as a lot of people have made out!
- We arrived at 2am in morning on our first night and were absolutely gutted at the first impression we got. we turned left at the bottom of the hotel's street. There is a club called breeze which was full of drunken abusive, rowdy Cypriots. One of them actually came up to my boyfriend which was very intimidating. DON'T let first impressions ruin your holiday though - I ended up very upset on this night but when we woke up the next day it was like a different place. I think this night had a special event on because it didn't seem very busy for the west of the week.
ATLANTICA GARDENS - After reading many reviews off here myself, I feared that we were going to be put in the Atlantica Gardens. Turns out, all studio apartments are based in the Atlantica Gardens! We were allocated into a room in the Gardens and I just can't believe the amount of complaints about it on here! The rooms were lovely, absolutely spotless, friendly staff and the hotel is literally a 1 minute walk down a nice little walkway to the main hotel. You do not feel like an outsider or anything like that as half of the people around the pools are also from the gardens! DON'T BE PUT OFF BY THE GARDENS! They have all just been refurbished, unlike the main hotel which we heard a lot of complaints about being loud, grubby and dirty!

Turn right at the bottom of the street for restaurants and bars - there are some lovely cocktail bars and a few nice restaurants... Not forgetting a Starbucks which i was pleased to see!!

Although the hotel was nice, we still felt as though the area wasn't really up to scratch and we are not in a rush to go back.
