we have stayed here several times during the summer months and needed a few stress free days away.
as in the past we upgraded to a bungalow room which is well worth the extra.the rooms are no more than 50 yards from the main hotel but you are almost in a different world.the rooms are larger and of a superior standard to the hotel rooms and although at this time of year we do not use the pool the bungalows share a private pool.
across the road there are various bars and restaurants all of a decent standard but if you fancy a slice of home take a trip up to the air base where you will find a superb fish and chip shop ( take away and restaurant ).this place is always packed during the summer and although the restaurant looks nothing special the food is top notch.
as far as the hotel is concerned we have always found the staff to be 5 star and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them.
several people have mentioned the cats around the hotel.you can blame myself as well as the staff for this.on each occasion we have stayed in the bungalows we have always fed the cats and kittens and the staff do the same on a daily basis.it gets to the stage where we shop more for the cats than ourselves and i tend to find them asleep on the patio early morning waiting for breakfast.
to sum up larnaca.if you want fabulous beaches and nightlife this is not the place for you.the area tends to suit couples and families who spend most of their time in and around the hotels.
