“Very good if you're on a budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Good value, quiet stay, great pools and location near to the beach. We went for a week at the end of July with our two children who loved the pools to keep cool as it was so hot, there were always sunbeds available by the pools. Decor is dated but it didn't bother us as it was clean and had everything we needed for self-catering. More annoying was the incessant chirping of crickets from dawn till dusk and sometimes the bar/ pools were busy till late so we found it difficult to sleep. The bar wasn't well-stocked but was handy for our first breakfast. Great little cafe/restaurant a 10 min walk on the road to Larnaca called 'Mama's' that has reasonable prices and a children's play area and bouncy castle which we found useful. Air-conditioned bus 425 leaves from opposite the hotel and costs 1 Euro, 50 cents, it goes into Larnaca town and to the airport (taxi costs about 30 Euros to airport). You can get this bus or the 424 and stop and shop at Lidl on the way to Larnaca centre to stock up on cheaper food. For a family on a budget, we were pleased with the Lysithea.

Room Tip: Room 105 had shade on the veranda for most of the day and wasn't close to the bar, which could b...

This hotel is not worthy of the reviews it has been receiving. It's a VERY BASIC place that has been getting great reviews for no apparent reason. We arrived to a lackluster welcome as though they could care less that we are here. It's a classic example of buyer beware. Yes, it's got a trashy kind of charm and yes, it's got a good location with one if the big tourist beaches across the street, but the room is straight out of the 3rd world. It's one if the most basic rooms (self-catering) I've ever seen. The decor is just plain tired. The shower is adequate, but just about every thing needs to be renovated. Amazingly, the bed was actually ok....just ok. The pool was a little scary although that did not keep it from being occupied from morning until night. What was particularly gross was the "ring" of human grease around the edge that you could scrape with a knife. Don't mean to be disgusting, but that was a turn-off. It's a cheap place which is probably why so many people give it good marks, but honestly, you should really pass on this place.

Just returned from a week at Lysithea. Ok so the room are a bit dated but if you want 5 star then pay for it!! They are cleaned every day with towels & bedding changed every 3 days.

The pool & bar area is lovely, plenty of sunbeds & tables & chairs, food ok, but our favourite was Diana restaurant along the road

Beach directly across the road - 2 sunbeds & brolly for 5 euros

The staff are friendly and helpful. The bus stop is outside with buses running frequently in to Larnaca for 1.5 euros.

You can get the 525 bus direct from the Airport to outside the apartments.

All in all good value for money

Room Tip: all rooms overlook the pool

The place is better than you get from the website photos. We stayed in an apartament (we didn't expect that). The hotel is just 3 minutes from the local beach ( 2 sunbeds and sunbrella 7,5 euros). Lysithea has got a nice swimming pool and a small one for the kids. The restaurant together with the bar is next to the pool. You can eat breakfast there. The staff is friendly and talkative:). You have to buy AC separately.

My partner @ I have just spent 2 wonderful weeks at The Lysithea. The room was was clean & well maintained as was the rest of the hotel, the pool area & bar were very nice & George & the staff were very friendly & made us feel most welcome. The location is excellent with shops, bars & tavernas all within easy walking distance. I would particularly recommend GI's bar & grill where Helen & her family cooked some beautiful meals - I had the finest pork chop I've ever eaten. Helen's son Greg served us with bubblegum vodka, a concoction of his own which my partner Claire got a serious taste for. Oasis bar & The Skylight Bar are also well worth a visit. All in all it was great time & excellent value for money.

The Lysithea is opposite the 'tourist beach' on the Larnaca/Dhekalia road. It is only 1 1/2 euros into Larnaca Bay on the local bus. The food is fine, pool is fine and the bar serves its beer in frozen glasses. The bar is elevated and gets a very nice breeze from the sea. Staff are very friendly. Rooms are cleaned daily but towels are only changed every three days or so. If you want a quiet, peaceful location this is the place. If you want a bit of nightlife there are several bars and restaurants down the road (ut the hotel and turn right) a few minutes walk away.

I would find it hard to understand any one who complains about these appartments. You get what you pay for. Ok they are basic. But hey you only sleep there. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel at home and if its not on the menu you only have to ask. The food was good and the cocktails very nice. The beach located just across the road, is beautiful, the sea was so warm. OK the hotel pools are pretty cold, but you get used to it. Plenty of sunbeds, rooms cleaned daily. George was so kind to us when we arrived in the early hours, he let us have our room even though we werent supposed to be able to have it until 2pm. Its in a great location, close to everything and not too far from the airport for transfers. I went with my daughter and will definitely be returning with my husband next year. Im sure someone will mention ants.... you only have to tell the cleaner and she will sort it, Apparently everywhere has an ant problem this year x

Room Tip: Depends what you like. We were ground floor and could just walk straight out to the pool. Loved it...
