“Quite Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

With the new renovations this hotel is very beautiful! Lovely CLEAN rooms! With lots of amenities set up for use in the spacious bathroom! The only down side to the bathroom is the "Euro" style half shower door/half open shower-it makes a mess on the floor and leaves one side of your body cold and airy:(
The suite I stayed in had a beautiful patio with an amazing view of gorgeous water!
Location is a bit out of the city center, but the beach access is worth it!
Oh and the POOLS!! Plural, I mean lots of water choices!
Really excellent service as well!

Stayed January 2015, traveled on business

We stayed for 3 days early January 15 as part of our two centre trip to Cyprus. Upon arrival the porter was quickly out to our taxi to help with the luggage which was appreciated. Check in was relaxed and a cool drink provided whilst the formalities were completed which was a nice touch. we were delighted to hear we had been upgraded to a grand suite which did not disappoint in terms of scale and opulence. The views from the dual access balcony were great. Food was well cooked and plentiful and the staff always helpful and obliging. There is a mini taxi office on the hotel car park which provides a reliable and fair priced service. We travelled to Nicosia ( e50) and Larnaca town ( e11) to explore the off season experience on offer. There is a mini market just over the road ( turn left) which catered for any yearnings and extras. All in all we had an enjoyable stay including extended check out on day of departure due to late flight. we would recommend this hotel to other travellers and thank the staff for their contribution in making our stay relaxed and enjoyable throughout.

Room Tip: full sea view is dramatic and worth the extra

This hotel is lovely - by the beach, beautiful views from the rooms and a decent hotel. Do upgrade to a suite if possible, they have a big open terrace and a outdoor Jacuzzi. Prices are higher if a direct hotel booking is done.

Hotel lovely with nice views, staff really friendly. New year gala food was cold unfortunately the kitchen staff couldn't cope due to numbers attending which is a pity because otherwise would have given it 5 stars

Room Tip: Rooms east side will be cooler in the summer

We have recently returned from the Golden Bay hotel and we had a fantastic holiday. We wanted to be away for Christmas and booked BA flights and this hotel with BA.Com. We wanted to fly from Heathrow. From start to finish we had a great time. Check in was very efficient and friendly. We were lucky with above average weather most days so whilst the locals were in jackets and jumpers we were in shorts and t shirts! The hotel and the area were both quieter than we had expected but this is fact added to our experience. It was lovely to sit and chat and get to know the other guests and the staff. With regards to the staff we can honesty say that everyone we came into contact with was fabulous at their job. We met the Guest Relations Manager Margarita and she was so knowledgeable and friendly. She arrange a shopping trip to Larnaca and was so helpful. Upon our return we found a thoughtful note and gift in our room from her. We were so touched. Other staff members, Maria, Danyella and Andriana were also fantastic. They all looked after us so well. The New Years Eve gala dinner was wonderful. We had a fab evening and danced the night away. The meal was excellent. In fact every meal was great with so much choice.
We loved this hotel and the staff and we will definitely return one day!

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view.

Where do I start? We arrived late Christmas Eve, to a welcome cocktail and lovely welcoming smiles from reception, we just had time to shower and change for dinner (or should I say feast)! The evening was brilliant with excellent entertainment, but the food was fabulous! The waiting staff were not only attentive, but were enjoying the work they were doing and it showed, dressed in festive antlers too!.
Going back to the room (which incidentally was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated), we found a Christmas cake, fruit and sweets! The bed was lovely and comfortable, and our maid kept the room spotless, she was brilliant..

Christmas day, again was more celebrations starting with champagne breakfast, and carrying on all day. The Hotel had lots of activities laid on, and there was always something to join in, watch or try out. During the stay, my husband had hi birthday, and he was given both a cake and a bottle of champagne, Thank you for making his day so special!

The hotel staff are some of the loveliest staff we have met in our travels, nothing is too much for them. It makes a holiday to find staff who not only help, but want to and enjoy doing it.

Thank you so much Golden Bay Beach Hotel, we have not got one bad thing to say about our 10 day stay, we loved it and will be back!

Room Tip: We had no problems with our room, 426 we were not disturbed by noise, we did not ask for a view, and...

Golden Bay is not a five-star luxury resort, but it is a very pleasant place to stay. Service was mostly friendly, prompt and hassle-free. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is very good.
