“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

A nice hotel, good room size. Plenty of loungers for all the guests. The food is exceptionally good, something for everyone and the all inclusive is a must. I would just prefer if the terrace had designated smoking/ non-smoking areas, it was lovely to eat out on the terrace but the meal was spoilt by a neighbouring guest smoking whilst we were eating both at breakfast and dinner. The pool area is very nice, the temperature just right , what I would like to know is why the lifeguard would regularly clean the pool when people were swimming in it at around 11am every day ! Also the pool bar would close at 5pm but the pool is open until 6pm ! The entertainment was good when the professional acts were brought in, we really enjoyed the Greek dancing. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, my daughters pyjamas were taken with the bed linen, they've agreed to send them back to us when they come back from the laundry ( will wait and see if it does happen ! ) don't leave any clothing in/ on the bed as these were pink and I would have thought noticeable against the white sheets ! The beach area is ony small, you can walk out quite a way into the sea , the surrounding area and the other hotels are not very nice. We hired a car from a local car hire which I recommend to do to see more of the island..

Room Tip: We requested a high floor which did feel safer, we were in a garden/ pool view room.

Spent one week here 21st to 28th April. Absolutely faultless. Staff wonderful, especially Andreas, Silvia, and all the girls.
Food fantastic, different every night on theme basis,.
Spotlessly clean and all the staff from waiting, bar, cleaning were exceptionally friendly.
My sister and brother joined us for 3 of our days for their wedding anniversary, and dear Sylvia surprised them on their first night with a wonderful cake.

Would highly recommend and thank you so much Louis Princess and all your staff for making our holiday.

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 week all inclusive stay in this hotel, which we have previously stayed in twice before (albeit the last time was12 years ago) since then this area has really nose dived. Several hotels have closed, as have many of the shops, bars and cafes.
Apparently the hotel was refurbished in 2009, well if it was it has certainly had a hard life since then. The rooms were tired, and the dark dingy en-suite was hardly 4* standard, additionally if you wanted a decent shower after coming off the beach/pool you had to get it before 4pm. The TV in the room was and old CRT model which only had one English language channel, and there was no radio. We couldn't use our balcony as there were birds nesting on it, which meant the floor was covered in Bird droppings.
The restaurant was nice,The waiting staff are Bulgarian, and are very pleasant and helpful, and I have to say the food and service were excellent, however, outside was a notice laying down the dress standard expected of guests. This was never enforced, at times there were guests wearing just bathing costumes having lunch. The hotel was full of eastern block nationals (Mainly Russian)who think that its OK for their children to run screaming round during meal times. There is only one lounge bar area in use, were the evening entertainment takes place, up until about 9 o'clock its for tots who are allowed to run wild.
I requested a meeting with the hotel manager to make my complaints known to him, but his answer was that his Russian guests liked it that way, and didn't want to feel restricted whilst on holiday. That's fine if you have children,but my advice would be that unless you want a "Butlin's" style holiday stay well away from here

Room Tip: Unless you are a family, choose a room in another hotel

Dear guest,

On behalf of the Louis Princess Beach, we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel as your holiday destination and for sharing a comment online.

It gives us great pleasure to see that you enjoyed the hotel's restaurant, the excellent and delicious food on offer with its great selection to choose from as well as our helpful and hardworking staff members, who are always giving their best and making sure that every single guest is satisfied! Nevertheless, we regret the fact that you were not fully happy with our services throughout your stay, and are saddened by your harsh review especially when our hotel has received very positive comments on this website. Regarding the bird toppings, we are working extremely hard to remove them every day and believe us, it is a massive challenge. The easiest thing to do would be to remove the nests but we are not sure that this is the ethical solution. Regarding the dress code, we keep it relaxed especially at lunch because many guests, of varying nationalities, refuse to wear trousers in the 40-degree heat. This is totally normal, we feel. Finally, and more worryingly, we have seen a growing trend whereby a minority of guests does not accept others from different nationalities. This saddens us very much because it puts us in a no win situation; we have never discriminated against age, gender or nationality so it is disappointing to see that some of our guests do. In so doing, they put themselves in a negative frame of mind from the off of their holiday.

Thank you once again and we hope to have the chance to welcome you back to one of our Louis Hotels!

Kind regards

The hotel overall was good. I was really satisfied with the breakfast tho, very fresh and a lot of things to choose and eat. The pool i liked it because of the shape and it was very clean. But something bothering me is the cockroaches there. The trees in the building were full of cockroaches and they were all over the place when u were dinning outside (it was funny tho). Despite that i had a great time and the price was good

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying at the Louis Princess Beach and for sharing your positive comments.

We are glad to see that you had a great time at our hotel and that you were left satisfied with the quality and selection of food on offer as well as our clean pool. Regarding the cockroaches, we assure you that we are constantly spraying repellent to deter them, with very good results. Sometimes one or two may surface in which case we spray again and the cycle continues. However, as you may appreciate, insects are difficult to control when you try to have lovely gardens like the Princess does...nevertheless we will make sure to spray again following your comment.

Thank you once again and hope to see you soon again at one of our Louis Hotels!

Best regards

I have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel and it was an enjoyable experience. For all inclusive the food was really rather good with a good choice at breakfast lunch and dinner; themed nights every evening and the kids satisfied by the beach snack bar during the day. The food was good quality with something for everyone; the staff were helpful and attentive, serving drinks at lunch and dinner.
The pool area was excellent with plenty of sun loungers around the pool and a life guard overseeing the area; generally a pretty area. The beach wasn't anything to shout about and my partner commented that the sand was the colour of concrete so not very appealing although you were able to swim in safety in the sea which was quite shallow up to the rock wave breakers which were about 100 metres out.
Overall quite a nice hotel albeit a little tired looking with a lick of paint needed here and there but the rooms were very clean and the food above average.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool area were, in general larger than those in the main building.

this is definately not a 4 star hotel not even close but the staff were excellent and it was spotlessly clean.

most of my gripes are with thomas crook i mean cook who in my opinion give a far from true discription of a hotel they seem to be describing through rose tinted glasses.

rooms were spotlessly clean but very tired looking and though we requested a pool view we did not get it and were told we could be moved for a surcharge of 15 euro per day.

food was excellent with loads of choice and again the restaurant was spotlessly clean with very efficient staff clearing tables etc.

the hotel does front the beach, you can step off the hotel premises take 6 steps and your on the so called beach however the sand is a dirty brown colour and there is not enough of it to lay on.

entertainment was provided on three nights but it really was below standard and there was hardly anyone in the bar when it was on.

buses pass by outside the hotel and it is very easy to get into larnaca where there is a little more to do.

Room Tip: best rooms are to the rear of the hotel around the pool which is not used after 6.30pm

Dear guest,

First of all, we would like to thank you for choosing Louis Princess Beach as your holiday destination.

We are delighted to see that our staff members were excellent, that the hotel was spotlessly clean, and that the food was of a very high standard. However, we are sorry to see that Thomas Cook created higher expectations of our hotel, which in effect were not met. Furthermore, we apologize for the misunderstanding which must have been taking place concerning the requested pool view...we never received your request. Finally, we would like to inform you that the state of the sand at the beach will be considered by the hotel and improved where possible. As for the entertainment, we are left slightly disappointed as we usually only get good, if not excellent feedback.

Thank you and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in one of our Louis Hotels in the nearest future!

Yours sincerely
