Hotel's Favorite
Our first stay at this hotel has left us with the most positive impressions. The location is excellent - outside Larnaca, directly facing the beach, with shallow and clear waters, and with a pool and gym. The balconies are large, and (at least in our case) overlook the sea, in an oblique way. It is a real pleasure to sit there and watch the sun set. There are tea and coffee facilities in the rooms, which I also greatly appreciated (as this is by no means standard outside the UK). The room has an efficient and easily controllable air condition system, there is ample hot water, and all the facilities were excellent. The highest standards of cleanliness prevailed in the rooms and indeed throughout the hotel. The hotel itself has extensive and spacious areas that are rather airy and suitable for sitting and relaxing with a book, as also a nice patio where there is ample shade. The WiFi was good throughout the hotel. Service is efficient, friendly and professional - ranging from reception to waiters to cleaning staff. I would say that the cuisine is the great glory of this hotel. We availed ourselves of an offer to have half board at no extra cost, and were thus able to have lunch or dinner each day (choosing whichever we preferred on a daily basis). As breakfast is rather filling and delicious, I opted to have dinner at the hotel, rather than lunch. I am pleased to report that it was never less than very good indeed, but on several occasions it was outstandingly good, and I had to ask personnel to convey my compliments to the chef. There is a buffet system, and a huge amount of choice. Everything is evidently freshly and carefully prepared, with the very best and freshest ingredients. Each night of the week has a special gastronomical theme - particularly enjoyable were the Cyprus nights, where, in addition to a very rich selection of fruit, one was able to taste various types of paklava, kateifi, shamali, galatopoureko, sujuko and other fine sweets that I had not tasted since my childhood! Lovers of fish and seafood will not be disappointed. Vegetarians will also get a good selection of dishes, but I am not sure if vegans will find the same. However, several different varieties of salads, cooked garden vegetables, and risottos of various sorts, seemed also to be available every evening. The hotel is pleasantly quiet, although I cannot be sure if this would generally be the case, or whether it was so due to Covid-related restrictions. I would generally recommend that whilst booking one opt for the side overlooking the sea, and as close to the sea as possible (and away from the road, where early-morning traffic can wake one up if one chooses to fall asleep with an open balcony door, pleasantly lulled by the waves). By choosing a room that faces outwards, and not the adjacent hotel, one can also avoid any noise that may come from the neighboring hotel (although because of Covid it was closed, so there was no loud music emanating from those quarters). I am pleased to report that Covid-related precautions were taken very seriously and were respected as a matter of course, by personnel and guests alike. This meant that one really felt very safe indeed at all times, even though there were guests from many different parts of the world. Masks are worn at all interior spaces except whilst seated at one’s table for meals (and of course except in one’s room). At first I was uneasy about the buffet system, but there are transparent covers above the various dishes, and strategically positioned touchless disinfectant dispensers. Upon entering the dining room one disinfects one’s hands, and can readily do so again and again, for instance upon holding a jug of orange juice, or using tongs to put a piece of toast into one’s plate, and so forth. I do think that thereby all risks were virtually eliminated. And drinks, as well as tea or coffee at breakfast, were served by personnel. I enjoyed making use of the gym. Because of Covid, there is a booking system, and one ends up having the entire gym for oneself for an entire hour. To maintain maximum flexibility, I would only book an hour each day for the next, and did not experience any difficulty in finding a convenient slot. Likewise, one is able to book oneself a deck chair on the beach for the whole of one’s stay if one wishes. In fact we chose not to do so, so as not to block any of the chairs unnecessarily and thus prevent others from using them. In the event, whenever one chose to go to the beach there was no shortage of chairs to use. The hotel is not cheap, but there was a significant discount, which, coupled with the offer of half board at no extra cost, and the sheer lavish nature of the overall experience, enhanced by the truly outstanding quality of the cuisine, I would say that it was good value for money. It is difficult to make pronouncements of general validity when, due to Covid, there were peculiar circumstances this summer, and one can imagine the place being busier and livelier in more ordinary circumstances. All I can say on the strength of our stay is that the hotel was truly excellent, and the experience extremely enjoyable. I am happy to recommend the hotel very highly indeed.

We had high hopes of a 5 star holiday but were disappointed in a number of ways. Firstly, it’s important that I say some of the staff were fantastic, Verne and Christianos in particular, both from the restaurant. Some staff were miserable and spoilt the trip, notably the bar staff. The General manager was fantastic. The location of the hotel is first class, right on top of a sandy beach, which is shelter by two stone breakers making the sea a dream to paddle, swim or snorkel in. It should have been so good. However, the hotel is showing its age. We stayed at the 3 star Panera Beach on the island last year and it is better than the Golden Bay. I asked for a change of room as ours had badly scuffed floors, damaged doors, cracked tiles in the shower but was offered an €80 per day upgrade instead. Such a shame. We wouldn’t go again.

We had a very nice (short) stay in this hotel. The staff was very dedicated and made us feel welcome, especially the two filipino restaurant service ladies Vernie and Anna Liza. I recommend this hotel.

I think the price to be paid for this hotel is not worth the quality. Travelled to Cyprus several times and this was first time in Larnaca, unfortunately won’t be choosing this hotel again. First of all food any time of the day is poor quality, no choices, opening the pots it’s all the same every day, tasteless and dry. The restaurant outside didn’t surprise with food choice as well. Poor quality. Another big disappointment that there is no bridge over the swimming pool, to get to another side of the pool. Need to walk all the way around, and also I’ve seen many people are disappointed over this. That’s the reason I didn’t enjoy all inclusive drinks which ones needed to get from long way walking around the pool. There is no music outside the pool, no pool activities. I think company spending away too much money on logos on tissues, papers etc, which will be throwing away anyways. It’s poor management I guess. Should be concentrated more on staff uniforms, or even renovation of some of the areas in a hotel. The best thing about this hotel is the room with the sea view, perfectly clean rooms, environment and extremely helpful staff. Ladies at dinning areas are always welcoming and ready to go extra mile for clients! Amazing!

Dear guests, Warm greetings to you from all of us here at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel and our genuine thanks to you for submitting your review of our Hotel. We are saddened to hear that you did not find our Golden Bay Hotel up to your expectations and satisfaction and we are sorry that you feel this way. Please allow us to clarify some comments you have raised in your feedback. With regards to the food we would like to say that we offer to our guests a The Yacht Club Restaurant with theme nights, the program of which is broadcast on the TV at the entrance. In addition, our guests are given the opportunity to visit the "To Petrino" tavern, where you can taste the variety of Cypriot cuisine. It is also worth noting that there is an A la Carte menu for our guests in case they did not find anything suitable for themselves. Also, our chefs are always ready to help and prepare something extra for the guests in case they have any allergies or dietary needs. I wish you could contact me or any other manager during your stay with us and we would try to do our best in order to satisfy you. With regards to your comment regards the music and no pool activities, we would like to mention that, unfortunately this season, due to COVID-19 restrictions we had to cancel our daytime animation. This information is written on our website. However, we have left our evening life music, which is running every day. Concerning the renovations we would like to inform that this season we have made following renovations in our hotel: Brand new elevators, hotels' parking, hallways, Patio area, and exterior of the building. On the other hand, please allow us to thank you for your kind words towards our rooms and helpful staff. Nevertheless, please allow us to mention that our hotel is constantly striving to ensure that all services and facilities meet our guests’ expectations and feedback from our guests is one of the most important tools in enabling us to achieve this so thank you once again for sending us yours. We do hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to our hotel and if you do please let us know.
