“Perfect Retreat!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a warm welcome and the arrival experience was great. Cigar cigar is a Cyriotic saying meaning take your time- the service in general is a bit slow but overal perfect. A relaxing atmosphere, perfect location and great view in the ocean. We hired a self driven boat which is amazing and the watersports facilities are great and very personal. The employees are very friendly, engaging and courteous.

One of the best hotels in Larnaca, built right on the best beach of Larnaca Bay, which is 12 km or a 10 min drive to the town centre. The hotel has a very fresh and cool design and offers excellent services. The rooms are spotless and nothing is too much for the staff. The swimming pool is busy but clean and the reception staff very helpful. The breakfast al fresco is varied and of good quality and there is a happy atmosphere everywhere.

I have stayed at this hotel 6 times over the last 4 years. I do keep going back as it is the best of a bad bunch. I have family in Larnaca so it is imperitive that I am close to them when I visit, I just wish somebody somewhere could meet the markets requirement for a five star hotel in this town.
The pool area is nice but service around the pool is challanging.
The rooms are clean and i have always been given a free upgrade to a pool facing room which has been nice
The breakfasts are boring and lack imagination
The room showers have very little pressure and if you chose to shower at 7pm sort of time you should brace yourself for a tepid wash
On my last visit I left my electric toothbrush in my room upon checkout which I didnt notice until i had arrived at my second hotel in Protaras later that evening. I called the hotel (they didnt call me) and they advised me that they had thrown my toothbrush in the dustbin but could try and retrieve it if I wanted??!!?? Thanks but no thanks!
I shall no doubt return again to this establishment but I can only hope that one day there will be somewhere else to choose.

Room Tip: choose a high floor at the end of the corridor as the hall area has a timber floor which can be very...

We spent 2 nights at the Sandy beach, it's a bit far from Larnaca's city centre so you need to take a taxi which will cost you around 15 euros... The hotel is nice but could be improved, the service was fine, the food was average, Check in was easy. You are allowed to swim at night which we really enjoyed :) We also loved the huge white sunbeds by the swimming pool.

The hotel has a fresh clean look often found in fine boutique hotels . The view to the beach through the pool area and gardens is excellent. Our stay there was very pleasant and we will be returning soon .

I can recommend this! I was very positively surpriced, the Sandy beach hotel was very good! The staff was friendly. The hotel restaurant wasn't that good (quite expensive, average food, but the waffles was delicious!), but there were several nice tavernas near the hotel. The pool area was lovely and the beach was also good. Only toys in a kids' playroom were worn and partly out of order but our son still enjoyed to play in there.

A taxi from Sandy beach to Larnaka city was about 15 euros and to Oroklini village 10 euros.
