“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Just returned from a two week stay in this recently refurbshed hotel and it was spotless from the Reception area through the bars, restaurants, pool areas, the rooms, corridors everywhere in fact, excellent! I was very impressed. The staff, the majority of whom spoke at least 2 languages, were very friendly and so very helpful even to the couple who jumped into one of the pools in heir wedding gear, the bride in her gown, veil and all, nothing was too much troulble. Breakfasts were of the usual kind but if there was nothing suitable on the evening menu, then I would say that it was unusual, the asparagus soup was the best and the tzatziki............. The beach was a very short walk (and I'm Disabled) through the hotel gardens and there was a breakwater 150 yards (max) out so that even I who cannot swim, felt very safe. Local buses into Larnaca ran from outside the hotel next door and the return stop was on the opposite side of the road. Driving is on the same side of the road as here in the UK, and the roadsigns show the English place hnames. The ONLY downside to all of this was primarily at weekends, when local people pretty much overran the beach area having first gone through the hotel and its grounds. Having travelled ?thousand miles and spent ?£ to stay there, both my husband and I felt quite aggrieved, and I know for certain that we were by no means the only ones who felt this way.

Room Tip: All rooms have a side sea view.

Beautiful garden area with pool, leading to the hotel beach that is well maintained and cared for. We enjoyed using all the areas of this tastefully renovated hotel and we were spoiled for choice with the bars on all levels, pattio pool area and beach ... This new beach bar creates a true five star beach experience , and as we do visit for the sun and sea this was a great surprise for us even though the small number of large beach beds were at an extra cost ...

I have visited the hotel the past week! Even though i stayed only 3 nights 4 days at the hotel, the experience i witnessed was absolutely amazing.Me and two other friends found it a very modern,stylish hotel with new furniture creating a refreshing atmosphere allowing us to enjoy our stay to the biggest extent.
Furthermore what really impressed me was the staff members, fast very kind and polite.
The food served in restaurants was also satisfying in taste and perfect in appearance.
During the second day we receive a note about the beach bar opening, this was the most amazing beach bar i have ever seen, as a part of a hotel. The bar is located right on the beach with chilling music creating a relaxing environment with fashionable beds right on the edge of the beach. As time goes by at about 7pm the music gets more uplifting and bar remains open untill 11pm.

I recommend this hotel no doubt!

Room Tip: The south side facing the beach rooms are incredible.

Hotel design and decor very clean and stylish. I particularly liked the sun beds which were more of ca mattress on a raised platform. The pools were nicely designed with one exception, not disability friendly. Need some user friendly steps for access to indoor pool and main outdoor pool, I had dislocated my shoulder and found getting in and out difficult. Good variety of fresh foods and good service generally tho mini bar was warm and took 4 attempts to get it fixed. Indoor pool a bit dark and drab needs some flowers, music and lightening up as well. Only one variety of tea at beginning of season but managed to find a herbal tea on day 2. food ok but not gourmet, chef should try to chew his beef before he expects his clients to chew it to death! Comfortable clean room, nice bed line.

Room Tip: Near the sea. Better view

Our trip was back in 2010, so ignore the date. This is a very nice hotel and has its own section of the beach. It is a quiet hotel with very average entertainment. The all inclusive food was very nice but a little repetitive, but aren't they all! There are several bars and restaurants close by (across the road) so there are places to go for a change of scenery. This is in the middle of three hotels sitting side by side on the tourist beach in Larnaca. It is not near the town centre or 'the strip'. A bus/taxi ride will take you there though.

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.
