I have stayed at Larco hotel with my family for 2 weeks.
First of all, I have to mention that this is a low budget hotel, so I will not compare it to the expensive and more equipped hotels I had stay at, but to the other low budget hotels.
It is conveniently located 10-15 minutes from the town center and the same from the Mackenzie beach. It is also very close to the airport.
The one bedroom apartment in which we have stayed is big enough for a family with a child. There is a kitchenette in the apartment, so you can cook if you want to. The furniture is a little bit old (probably older than the furniture in most average households), but it suites its purpose. In every room there is an air condition, which is really needed and you don't have to pay extra for it.
Speaking of extra payments, you will have to rent electric adapters for your electric devices because the electric plugs on Cyprus are different than those in continental Europe. You can rent one for 1 Euro + security deposit of 2 Euros which will be refunded at check out. It is not expensive, but in my opinion hotels should not try to make extra profit this way. Comfort of the guests should be at the first place, and the use of electric devices is the basic comfort so it should be free of charge.
The rooms are very clean (cleaned on daily basis) and if you decide to cook you do not have to worry about dirty dishes, because the maids will wash them for you.
The swimming pool is nice and there is a table tennis which you can play free of charge. There is also a pinball machine, some video games which you can play for 1 Euro, the gym and the sauna.
Drinks at the bar are a little bit pricey, having in mind that you can have the same drink by the sea for even or less money.
The breakfast is almost the same every day, but it is OK. If you want to dine out, there are nice and not much expensive restaurants near by.
The staff is very friendly and polite and they will try to meet every your demand. They are all very nice, but I have to mention a young man working at the reception because he is maybe the most polite receptionist I have ever seen.
During my stay there was a problem with hot water. This problem has easy solution, just let the reception know that there is no hot water and they will fix it in about 30 minutes.
If you want to stay at Larco hotel, just remember that this is a low budget hotel with very nice and friendly staff and you will not be disappointed at all. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is not a bad choice if you need a place to stay for a fair price, so I will have it in mind if I visit Larnaca again.
