Lucy Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Slightly off city center (in a small city that doesn't mean much), the hotel offers newly furbished, spacious rooms, nice view, friendly staff at front desk -service at breakfast wasn't that gorgeous- and parking facility. Price is very reasonable.

Lucy hotel is located in the tourist area of Kavala and with the car is fast coming to the center, about 2-3 kilometers. Rooms are decorated with beautiful design, excellent furniture, the bathroom is extra. We get a superior room with two terrace even though we paid an ordinary room without a terrace overlooking the city, which is our further impressed. Food is always fantastic with good choice. Room clened two times a day. Kavala is a beautiful town, which is worth seeing, lots of shops, cafes. Objection to the beach near the hotel that was dirty in the dirty water, after which we visited on the beach 25 km from the hotel, however, and there is sea water is dirty. Hotel pool is a good size, cleaned regularly, have a savior that strictly forbids jumping into the water and act as a policeman. Lucy hotel is good option for those who had been at sea near Kavala, (we have been to Thassos 11 days) swam in the clean beaches, and in Kavala we were five days, where we shoping and the night coming out.

I bused to this hotel having flown to Thessaloniki where I stayed before and after travelling to Kavala. Buses from Thessaloniki to Kavala go from the KTEL Makedonia Bus station which is just outside the city. Airport buses travel between this bus station and the airport so its actually easy to fly to Thessaloniki and travel onwards to Kavala. The buses are coaches, air conditioned and comfortable, there are measures in place to ensure that luggage is safe. It takes about 2 - 2 and a half hours and the scenary on the way is often fantastic. It costs 26 euros return. (There is no train station at Kavala).

The Lucy Hotel is actually on the outskirts of Kavala and is on a promintary with views out to the city, Thassos island and a small beach. So there are advantages of access to the city, yet having the beach/seaside. However its a good 40 minute walk into town which gets better/more interesting as you get nearer town. Although the walk is predominantly by the sea, its always along side a busy dual carriage way. It is also possible to take the bus, the number five into town and the number 4 back from town - it takes about 10 minutes.

The hotel itself is modern, clean and clearly newly refurbished. Reception staff are very helpful. Good and comfortable rooms with stylish bathrooms, with great sea views and balcony - only thing missing was a bathrobe.

The pool is fantastic - excellent size, very clean and lots of sunbeds.

When I first arrived breakfast was taken in what appeared to be the banqueting suite - with large tables for ten in a very hot room with a range of food on a large table in the middle. It was very off putting. This was due to some large groups staying in the hotel. I preferred it in the restaurant- where there are great sea views. The choice of food was OK- I found lots of fresh fruit, greek yogert and honey and cheese pies.

Kavala itself is a small city, rather out on a limb from the rest of Greece and certainly not sophisticated. Well worth a visit - there is lots to see and a weekly market by the sea on a Saturday. Its also easy to go over to Thasssos island - the ferry goes to Skala Prinos and costs 4.30 euros each way.

Room Tip: Sea view is best

Nice renovated 5* hotel in Kavala with stunning views of the old city and the island of Thassos. The weather was not nice so we didnt manage to swim or use the pool. Next to the hotel are couple of outing options. We have stayed in a junior suite for a very competitive price. Kavala is a very nice city with many things to do and so is the surrounding area. Breakfast was a bit average. Staff was very friendly. I would definately recommend the hotel and will go back.

We stayed at this hotel as a family one weekend in May. First of all our room was big with two balconies facing the sea. The room was very clean and well equipped. The staff was friendly and breakfast was OK. I recommend for travelers for a peaceful holiday. Kavala is a very nice town to relax.

I went there with my husband for a business trip and we stayed at the hotel for one night. We wished we could stay much longer. Everything was wonderful. The room was spacious with the perfect view of the sea. It was very clean, the staff was very polite and helpful and the breakfast was very rich and qualitative. I would definitely stay there again if I went to Kavala once again.

My husband, myself and our 5 year old stayed here in August 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We chose it as we visit the area to see relations and knew it had been updated, and we were not disappointed. All staff were welcoming and informative, and waiters during breakfast were efficient and helpful. Food was fresh and plentiful. The pool area is very well organised although there is no shallow end as such so armbands for non swimming children are required. The life guard is about the only let down of the hotel Lucy - very miserable, just blowing his whistle and gesticulating to anyone who dared have fun, that is unless of course you are a blonde 20 year old, well endowed in the bikini area and in this case you were dribbled over. luckily when any blonde young ladies were poolside, you had much more chance of having fun in the water as the guards attention was diverted away from the pool, so make sure you don't choose this time to drown!
Al in all, a lovely stay was enjoyed by all, and we look forward to returning next year and hope that they may have a new lifeguard!
