The location of the hotel is between the old town and tourist area in a mainly residential area. You can walk to the beach in a couple of minutes and the zoo is nearby. The bus stop is nearby where you can get no. 30 bus for 1 euro and travel the length of the sea front.
We stayed in the executive house which is actually across the road from the back of the hotel with it's own car park. The rooms are spacious with full size fridge, flat screen TV, large balcony lots of storage and kitchen area with kettle, hob, ironing facilities, etc. There is a full size bath with overhead shower, towels are changed every day. The air con was very good. I can't comment on the rooms in the main hotel, but the balconies look half the size and rooms seemed to be smaller and more dated.
We paid for a sea view but it is now blocked by a large building site next door that starts work early each morning, obviously this will be finished eventually but the building will still block the view. Don't worry about the building site waking you up, you will be awake already as the sea front road is used for street racing all night by loud supercars and motorbikes. Our view was of the building site and back of the main hotel where the bins were.
The pool are is nice and loungers and parasols are in plentiful supply, it is a shame the pool is so near to the road, seperated by a small fence as the smell of exhaust fumes sometimes spoils sunbathing.
We stayed half board and the food was of a good standard and varied every day. There is traditional entertainment in the restaurant every other day. The food on the Cyprus night is very good.
The staff in the hotel are friendly enough, especially Cristin who worked in the bar who made a fuss of our 9 year old daughter.
If you are looking for a hotel to take children this is probably not the best place, this is the only holiday our daughter has never had anyone to play with in the hotel and pool. We were the only British people in the hotel and they seem to cater mainly for a Russian clientele, this is fine as long as you don't wish to have any interaction at all with the other guests as they will not even smile at you even if you make the effort to be friendly.
Overall this is not a bad hotel and is certainly ok as a base if you are exploring Cyprus. For a family holiday I would not recommend Limassol, it is mainly gentlemen's clubs and Russian shops, save your money and go to Protaras instead.
