“Guest-oriented, fiendly with some minor faults”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

I stayed at this hotel with my brother from 2th till 9th August this year.

This hotel has 30 rooms of which 27 have a view to Larnaca Bay and 3 open to the land. We were accommodated in one of the 3 side rooms (see the uploaded photos). The hotel is located in Larnaca Bay which is about 7-8 kilometres from Larnaca which is within easy reach by bus (the bus stop is only two minutes from the hotel on foot). The hotel is surrounded by private apartments but there are some larger hotels (Lordos Beach, Golden Bay) rougly a 10 minute walk from the hotel. There are some restaurants and shops in front of those hotels. The beach is 200 metres away.

The hotel has two small pools, one is for children and the other one is for adults (depth ranging from 0,9 metres to 1,5 metres).

The hotel is open for non-residents who have to pay for sunbeds which are free for the guests of the hotel. Despite the fact that anyone can come in and have a swim, the pool area never gets crowded.

If you are a fussy eater then do not expect too much from this place but the quality of food was good. Breakfast is the same every morning, including sliced bread, two kinds of ham, two kinds of cheese, boiled eggs, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, some fruits, jam, butter, tea and orange juice. It is served in buffet style. Dinner is usually one kind of meat dish, pasta, side dishes (usually made of rice), salads and fruits (melon, peach or grape) also in buffet style. There is an opportunity to have lunch at the hotel, you can order burgers, steaks, snacks etc. or they offer "all inclusive light" service which includes breakfast, lunch (one type of dish, no choice), dinner and two drinks for each meal, so the consumption of drinks is not unlimited. The quality of lunch was always good, it was served to the table with salads and fruits.

The size of our room was adequate but the bathroom was small.

They have daily room service but bed linens and towels are changed every three days. Towels were not always clean. When we arrived we found that the air conditioner was not working but the staff was quick to repair it and we did not have any problems with it during our stay. Sleeping quality is relatively good but sometimes people make some noise by shutting the doors (mainly children) and if you book this place, take into account that it is located next to a main road which also creates some noise (even at night). Tha safe costs 2 EUR/day. Every othes item is also charged (dairdryer for eg.).

The staff is very friendly, if you have any requests they will act immediately. They are in good command of English and do everything for your pleasant stay.

The hotel offers some additional services which are not characteristic to a two star hotel (sauna, jacuzzi and a gym). I cannot give you any information on them as we did not use them. What I am sure of is that they are not free, you have to pay for using them.

On balance, this is a good hotel if you take into account that it has only two stars. Since the quality of food is already good, if they can make any improvement on the choice and offer a more appropriate room service (meaning the daily change of towels for eg.) they will certainly deserve one more star.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a view to Larnaca Bay, the side rooms do not have a good view.

Stayed here 20-27 March.We were on halfboard basis.Continental breakfast was good with ham,cheese,bread,boiled eggs,cereals,coffee,orangejuice and fresh fruits.Dinner was served to the table(changed to buffestyle in the end of week when more guests arrived)always with a salad and a dip,bread ,water and fresh fruits.If you like to go out and eat there are lot of restaurants in both directions from the hotel.We ate at Vlachos Tavern a couple of times.Good food and great service.
Goodsized room with large balcony and seaview.Close to the beach.Next to main road so it was a bit noisy at times.
The bathroom was very small with a showercabin.We later discovered that most of the rooms have a bathtub and i believe they are a bit bigger.Our room was next to the elevator and it made a lot of noise so ask for a room away from it.
The poolarea was closed but it was no problem to get out sunbeds if you wanted to.We even got service out there from the bar inside.I dont know about cleaning of the pool but i took a svim and it was warm enough for me.
Bus stop to Larnaca just across the street but since we have been to Cyprus before we went to the city only once,by foot.Took about 1 1/2 hours one way.
You can also take a taxi,costs 10 euro.
The beach is mostly sandy and about 5 km long.
We would go back to Larnaca Bay and Hotel Mariandy is a good choice.

We stayed at this hotel for a family wedding(september 2005), and could not fault a thing, staff were more than happy to help with every whimper. service to pool side was superb also, taxi drivers were 'scaringly quick' and cheap compared to the uk. Hotel was what I would call well above average for a 2 star hotel of this calibre,certainly better than most 3 stars in the uk. We had an incident were the 'local' ambulance service was needed,however they were not that local at all.turned up and did not seem like the drivers knew what they were doing considering the person we were with was in need of medical attention.All this said I could not dault hotel one bit.

I stayed at Mariandy for 3 days at the end of May 2009. The room was big, very clean (cleaning every day and changing of towels),with air condition,satellite TV and balcony with sea view.
I was on HB basis . The dinner was served to the table without possible choice of food,but the food was good with fruit and bottle of water.|
The hotel is located near main road Larnaca-Agia Nappa with heavy traffic so it is a bit noisy. Opposite the hotel is a bus to Larnaca and the city center is reached in 10 minutes.
