“beautiful sea views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Beach hotel only feet from the sea. Most rooms have a view or semi view of the water. Modern, clean and overall good value. Worth paying a little more for the pool and ambience. Not near the city center however. If you have to take the bus or public transport it is a little more difficult to navigate to local attractions. If driving it is quick to get to the city center and local attractions including historic castle/fort, Mosque on the salt lake, historic churches. Very close to airport and very convenient to the highway. On the main sea road of Larnaka.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms for the best view. Sea view deluxe garden first floor for direct pool and beach acce...

December in Cyprus....with blue sky, incrredible weather, warm sea...and, besides all, Louis Princess hotel with an excellent service and a very good location. Just 7 km away from the middle of Larnaka...take the bus 430 or 431 and in max 15 min you are on The Finikoudes Promenade...and from there, you've got the whole Larnaka : a visit to Saint Lazarus Church, then a shooping tour on Zenon Street, eat something ar Takis Kebab and, in the evening, return to this beatiful hotel. Take an excellent dinner, drink an excellent Cyprus wine or, perhaps, some Zivania....and then take a walk on the promenade...just beautiful

We spent a great week at the Louis Princess hotel at the beginning of November and enjoyed excellent service throughout our stay. We chose half board as this suited us as we are not big drinkers and like to venture out somewhere different each day so it would not have been advantageous for us to go ‘all inclusive’.
Our room was cleaned beautifully with clean towels each day and overlooked the sea and pool area. Tea and coffee was provided but only all in one shower gel over the bath and some liquid soap by the basin. If you prefer, take your own shampoo and conditioner.
The entertainment suited us as it was not too noisy and finished at a reasonable time so as not to affect getting to sleep. The Magic Night was particularly good as the magician catered for all ages and had no trouble in engaging people in the fun.
Internet was a little expensive in the hotel and the fax service to UK at 4E per sheet is also expensive (1E in computer shop opposite). If you want free internet try the British bar opposite who also do a large beer for 2.5E. Soft drinks also quite expensive in the restaurant and cost more than a glass of white wine!
The breakfast and evening meals were superb. The staff are very attentive and helpful. Tremendous variety and choice of meals with a different theme each evening such as Cyprus night, Italian night, BBQ night. Would recommend eating evening meal early for best choice.
The surrounding area is a little run down but the hotel is a gem of a place to stay for a very relaxing break and there are plenty of excursions which collect and drop off at the hotel entrance to keep everyone busy. We took advantage of three coach outings which gave us a great overview of the island, including the Turkish side. We also hired a car for a couple of days as the winter bus timetable is infrequent and stops at 18.30.
My husband and I will definitely be going back again and would recommend the Louis Princess Beach hotel for that perfect relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Room with a stunning pool/sea view

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for visiting the Louis Princess Beach and for writing such an encouraging review. It is fabulous to read of our guests' satisfaction which is highlighted repeatedly for certain areas, like the food, the view, the cleaning, the rooms and the location.

We certainly agree with you that our hotel is ideal for relaxation and sometimes, we wish we could also stop for a minute to enjoy the peace and quiet. We hope that we will have the opportunity to do this with you during a future visit at the Princess.

Best regards,

I have just spent 3 weeks in this hotel on a two weeks half board + 1 week free b&b deal, and found it quite adequate for what I paid. Having a third floor room with balcony, overlooking the sea was a big plus point. This room was kept very clean but the A/C was noisy. I thought the area between the hotel and the beach was very well laid out, with terrace, large and small pools, beach bar and absolutely loads of tables, chairs and sun loungers. As other reviewers have noted, the beaches in this part of Cyprus cannot be described as "golden", but that didn't bother me because I wasn't there for a beach holiday but to explore Cyprus.

Breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of food and plenty of it. By contrast, I became bored with the dinners after the first few days, because the meat always seemed to taste the same whatever it was, and the sauces were bland. I appreciate that I wasn't paying for fine dining, but I would have appreciated something that lingered on the palate more. The restaurant staff were very efficient and attentive, and the reception staff always helpful in arranging things such as car hire and coach trips.

The main thing against this hotel is its location. I would agree with reviewers who describe the area as run down and lacking in evening entertainment. The plus points were a bank with ATM and cheap convenience stores just across the road, and an excellent beach bar/restaurant nearby called the Mer Bleu. The big minus was that at this time of year buses into Larnaca run only once an hour. There are no timetables or route information on the bus stops, and the timetables provided by the bus company to local hotels were all wrong. The result: throughout my stay I kept meeting other tourists who like me had waited 40-60 minutes for a bus before eventually working out that they run just after the hour into Larnaca and on the half-hour back out. I realise this may not be a major consideration for everyone, but since I was using the hotel as a base to explore Cyprus local transport was an important factor for me.

Overall an enjoyable stay, except for the slight disappointment of the dinners.

Room Tip: Noisy pub opposite hotel on land side, so go for the sea view rooms

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for visiting the Louis Princess Beach and for writing such a detailed review of our hotel. We are especially happy to see that you appreciated the courteous staff, the rooms, and most importantly, the value for money.

We are also happy that you enjoyed the breakfast but are disappointed that your opinion of dinner was not the same. We serve a different theme dinner every night, with a wide variety of products and recipes, and as a company pride ourselves on the excellent food scores we receive. We will however be looking into improving the dinner experience following your comment by emphasizing even more the type of themed dinner we are serving.

Regarding the vicinity of the hotel, we do understand your disappointment but please be informed that Larnaca will soon host its own marina, something which will reinvigorate the city and restore its glory days.

Thank you once again and we hope that your next exploration trip of Cyprus or some Greek islands will also be with Louis Hotels.

Best regards,

The Management

Stayed a week with all-inclusive in november, and had a very good time.

Rooms: Clean and large. With sat TV, coffeemaker and minibar. Would prefer softer beds, but that is not important.

Pool/poolarea: Very nice with wooden sunbeds and soft madrasses. Pool cleaned daily, very nice. But tempereature a bit cold in november....

Beach: Small non-sharp stones close to shore, but nice sand from a few meters out. Shallow water and walls for wave-breaking. So very suitable for small kids also.

Acitivites: Tennis, ping-pong, Fitness-room, kids-club, boardgames etc (all free of charge), billiards, videogames, Jacuzzi, massage etc (for a fee).

Restaurant: In one word; fantastic! Buffet for breakfast with a wide variety of hot and cold. Lunchbuffet with hot and cold food, and a theme for dinner buffets changing every day. (Italian, american, far east, barbeque, gourmet etc) with several hot and cold dishes of meat and fish. Everything fresh and delicious. We were VERY satisfied with the restaurant.

Staff: Polite, professional and friendly (most of the time)

Wireless: Available for 3 euro pr hour. Good speed. Coverage good in the reception area, but not so good in all the rooms. Also internetcomputers available for a fee in the receptionarea.

Surroundings: Rather large motorway close, but no noise problems. Small community with some restaurants, shops, supermarkets etc just across the road.

Despite of old premises we were satisfied with very polite and anxious to help staff.Food was excellent, a lot of sunbeds,shops and restaurants just across the street. We stayied in the beginning of November, end of the season and found no activities around for the evenings.Larnaca is about 10 kilometres from hotel and buses were running not so frequently, one evening we were waiting about one hour to get back from city.Overall if you need place to rest peacefully with good service this hotel is place for you.

Room Tip: See view room is really worth to have

We stayed at the louis princess end of oct beginning of nov so come of the following niggles maybe down to the end of season. The hotel itself is very nice, the food was excellent and quite varied, the staff are great, the pool is lovely but very cold, we tried the so called beach but that is just a small strip of pebbles, its ok once you get over them and the water is very shallow, the daytime entertainment was non-existant bar a once daily water aerobics session and the evening was also pretty terrible. On walking around outside the hotel i would think that the area was once quite nice many years ago but now sadly is just a couple of bars and supermarkets, the area is very run down, almost derelict! We would go to cyprus again as the weather was outstanding but unfortunately not to Larnaca so that rules out this really nice hotel.

Room Tip: We had a basic room that overlooked the road so anything would be an improvement on that.

Dear guest,

We thank you for visiting the Louis Princess Beach and for sharing your impressions.

We are happy that you had an enjoyable holiday and that you liked the quality of the food on offer, our friendly and helpful staff members and the pool area.

Choosing to travel at the end of season may have some advantages as usually you won’t find a crowded place, but this implies that the touristic area of the hotel is also quieter.

We are glad that you would like to visit the beautiful island of Cyprus in the future, and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in one of our Louis Hotels, maybe in Protaras or in Paphos.

Kind regards
