I am particularly pleased to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful Roof Top Terrace, delicious food and to hear that you felt the day was well organised. We look forwarding to welcoming you back on another occasion.

We like this hotel soooooo much we've just been back for our 6th stay in as many years!!
Great Location, Friendly Staff, Fantastic for Weddings!

Right on the beach front, just a 10 minute walk away from the busy main town or a quick Taxi drive away - 8euros (if it's a really hot evening, which there are lots of). We like to walk one of the ways and get a taxi the other, depending on how tired or drunk we get Lol.

The Hotel sits ideally just outside of Ayia Napa town centre and a short journey away from Protaras as well (reportedly just 1.5 euros by bus).
Great views of the beach from the hotel and grounds, over looking Ayia Napa.
A great tip is to take a trip up to the little known 5th floor outside/rooftop function suite (the view is amazing and even better after dark).
The outside pool great, however if you're brave or just really hot try the inside pool to really (Really, really) cool off. You've been warned! VERY refreshing!
There's a couple of newsagent/utility shops just at the top of the hotel's drive and additional to the hotel's restaurant, there's a beach restaurant just next door (Mistrali's).
We'll be back again next year.

Grecian Sands is an excellent hotel!!! It provides great food, great accommodations and it has a very helpful staff. But the most impressive feature of this hotel is the Cypriot night at which a group of dancers demonstrate traditional dances of Cyprus as well as some Greek ones like the famous Zorba!!! What a great show!!! I highly recommend it if you are planing on staying in Ayia Napa.

We have just returned from a night's stay at the hotel, during a local long weekend - bank holiday (Wit Monday).
The hotel is at the edge of Ayia Napa, and is a 15-20 min walk (and a few min drive) from the city centre. It is located on the beach, and very close to Ayia Napa - Cavo Greco - Protaras road making it a very good place to stay.
Hotel is clean and tidy and has all the amenities needed. The rooms are spacious and clean, but there are some spots where the hotel and room age is revealed, like the 1980s rotary phone as well as the 1980s in-room entertainment system.
Breakfast was very good with the usual variety and freshness found at hotels of this caliber in Cyprus.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. There was a problem with the card key that day, but the staff went the extra mile to make sure we were happy, providing a couple of solutions, including having a member of the staff going to the room with us to open the door, as well as using an interim card key.

Room Tip: Hotel rooms have a side sea view, so it is good to pick a room as close to the beach (an away from t...

Got married here May 2014 and have to say from the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's. Its unusual for a big hotel to have a family feel but this is how it felt, not too many staff so you got to know the faces and they would always greet you with a friendly smile and chat. The sea view rooms have some of the best views I have seen in Ayia Napa (4th visit) and the pool is lovely and clean. Rooms aren't huge but they are lovely and very clean. We got amazing customer service from Avraam and Alla who is the wedding coordinator who as well as other staff did everything they could to make our wedding perfect. The day went without a hitch, the views from the seadeck and the rooftop are amazing and all our guests loved it. The food at our reception was probably the best that we and most of out guests had during our holiday. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was a little bit of luxury and the champagne breakfast in bed really topped off our wedding. If anyone is considering getting married here don't hesitate to book, Alla is amazing and really looked after every element of our wedding and made us feel like friends not just customers. Cannot wait to return to grecian sands x
