“Could not get in!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Well at least most reviewers managed to gain entry! At present we are staying in the Annabelle Pathos but we were keen to view others hotels for future visits
Having previously stayed at The Meridien,Amathus Beach and Four Seasons we set out one Saturday to re visit
Our reception and welcome at The Amathus and Four Seasons met with our expectations and we
would be happy re visiting either
However we were not able to gain entry to "Fort" Meridien as the gatekeeper/employee insisted that we drive away as entry was restricted to guests only
Perhaps the management would care to explain, our visit was at 3pm today - why was entry denied?

Decided to return after 5 years because we were looking for a "flt and flop" break rather than a busy holiday so we booked a half board package. For some reason (hasty online button pressing and a failure to review the selections) I completely messed up the booking but the front desk manageress and her team repaired the situation swiftly while we drank a complimentary beverage.

Great selection at both the breakfast buffet and on the table d' hote menu for dinner, beautifully presented by friendly and helpful staff and great to catch up with some that were there from our last visit.

Looking to return within the next year.

Room Tip: As for a pool/sea side room for a sunny aspect.

Let me start by saying, just how challenging this review is to write.

We visited this hotel early November for a 6 night stay. I can only review it by doing the pro's and cons. As the title states we have totally mixed views.

As trip advisor will show, we are a very well travelled couple. And we like what we like.

We don't mind dated! However this place is in serious need of a revamp in certain areas.

However on saying that, our rooms, as we moved twice, due to unforeseen circumstances was really ok. So, no issues from us in room comforts.
The main dining area. Well, this needs to be first on the revamp list. Another trip advisor member referenced school canteen! No it was worse! But yet again, the food and passion from the chef was totally acceptable. Not too much choice, but very tasty, and ok. Certainly not Riu Palace standards, but we ate very well each evening.
The service was very hit and miss. We aren't keen on over the top, but sometimes it was very challenging to get coffee in a morning or drinks correctly and effectively on an evening.
The pool area are good. Sun beds are plentiful and very good.
Good sea front location. Not a bad setting all round in regards to location, all be it a little out of the way. This tends to suit us. Local supermarket not far away.
Spa facilities appear to be quite good. In door pool looked inviting.
Expensive, in my opinion, absolutely yes! Drinks, and food ridiculous. Then again, Cyprus has always been more top Market than any other in Europe.
Would we return, possibly not. Shame as this hotel and resort has several positives - but I'm struggling to write this review. That tells me just how mixed our feelings are.
We enjoyed our stay with the le meridian, but possibly because we needed the chill out break. Not because of hotel etc
.The house keeper work tirelessly to keep this old hotel very clean, could not fault the cleanliness.
So, in a nutshell. Cyprus...... Out priced themselves, very dated hotel, some good areas, but very, very expensive once there.
Challenging, as winter sun is minimal in Europe. So, sorry for being a little vague, however we still cannot go with a positive or a negative. Leads me to believe, not worth a return visit.
Not disappointed, but not impressed.

Room Tip: Choose royal suite.

When we stayed here in October 2010, we were unimpressed with the standard of the food at all of the restaurants. When I booked at very short notice to stay here again in October this year, we vowed to journey more into Limassol and eat out as much as possible.

The only major selling point of the hotel as far as we were concerned, is the fantastic children's facilities on offer. You would need to go quite a long way to find anything to match the kids' stuff here.

We were pleasantly surprised at the turnaround in food quality from 2 years ago, when I would have scored the place 4/10. Having stayed there again and eaten at all of the restaurants, I'd happily award 8/10 now. Well done on employing an Executive Chef who clearly knows how to run a good kitchen.

Yes, the rooms do look a bit dated, but they are very large and clean. The maid service is excellent. All of the staff were friendly and helpful without exception.

Unfortunately, the only gripe I have is the poor quality of the surfacing around the sea water pool, which we complained about last time. Splinters in the soles of your feet can be quite uncomfortable and there were many people suffering with the same problem this time around as well.

Quite handy is the supermarket 10 minutes walk turning left out of the main entrance of the hotel called Double Point. Also shows footy and serves basic food such as pizzas and burgers.

I'd come back again because they have really raised their game as far as the catering goes. Please sort out the salt water pool surface area though.

This is a review of our second stay at Le Meridien Limassol, which was in October/November 2012, eight years after our first visit. First time round was just wife and myself, and this time we took our very lively 3 1/2 year old son too! As such, we have had both non-child and child experience of this outstanding hotel, and I felt it was time to commit some thoughts to the World of Tripadvisor, albeit based completely on our most recent (with child!) trip.

This is a big, brash, luxurious, full service, marble lined five star resort. If you've ever stayed in such a place, Le Meridien Limassol (LML hereafter) will be very familiar to you. LML is not different to any other big five star resort I've stayed in - but it is outstanding and wins because of the excellent service provided by ALL staff to the guest. It is the staff here that make a holiday special, and for our recent trip with our son they all went the extra mile (kilometre for the Europeans and USA!) to ensure we had a great time.

Firstly - booking process. I was keen to arrange adjoining rooms. A quick email to LML reservations had a positive and friendly answer in seconds, meaning that I could then complete my booking online (at an excellent package rate on LML's own website - recommended!) with absolute confidence. A further un-solicited email from LML reservations after I'd made my online booking to re-confirm that the rooms allocated were exactly to our needs was a nice touch too - meaning we could relax before the holiday knowing that the arrangements for our stay were perfect.

Rooms themselves are OK - probably in need of a small refurb as they were exactly as I'd remembered them from eight years previously, and they'd looked tired then too! TV's have been upgraded, and safes improved. Rooms perfectly comfortable and pleasant with excellent balconies. NOTE TO PARENTS: The balconies in this resort are perfect from a safety perspective. There is a tough three way lock system (helped by a high-up door chain well out of the reach of little people.) Kids will be safe in their rooms, and you can relax!

Pools are plentiful. The main pool plus adjoining kids pool is great for families who like entertainment, but we don't, so we took refuge at the much quieter and preferable lagoon pool (salt water, and unheated, but in late October more than warm enough for swimming!) which was helpfully next to the outstanding Lagoon Bar/Restaurant for happy lazy lunches.

Entertainment when required for 3 year old was great, but cannot comment on the Kids Club as unlike parents who like to offload their children at every opportunity we prefer to spend family time together on holiday. I hear though that it is very good.

Restaurants are plentiful at this resort, and generally excellent. Apart from breakfasts, we gave the buffet orientated 'Le Fleuri' a miss, as it is not really what we want. Breakfasts however were extremely good.

The two restaurants we used in the hotel were the Vieux Village Greek Taverna, and the Italian trattoria. Both were superb. The staff in both were fantastic - great teams of people who took care of us really well. A special note of praise to Goran, the Maitre'd of the Italian restaurant, who took it upon himself to cure me of the stomach bug I had arrived on holiday with. A dose or two of Fernet Branca (complimentary as well!) did the trick! Many thanks to him, but also to all of the staff in these two restaurants which we enjoyed very much indeed. Pricing for a five star resort was also highly reasonable, which when comparing the cost of taxis to downtown Limassol and the restaurant cost there made eating in the hotel a reasonable solution, particularly given the choice of restaurants on offer.

Downside? Stupid pricing in the room minibar. The fridge was really useful for storing products we bought in the local supermarket, and we left the minibar choice un-touched. EUR 5.70 for a small Evian? Please. Travellers are not naive. Perhaps a 50% cut in minibar prices would yield a 250% profit increase, but until management sees the light on this I'm heading out to buy water/chocolate etc locally for a tenth of the price.

So overall, a really happy family holiday in a great location. We were blessed by excellent weather which helps, and came home thoroughly relaxed, which is very much the aim of our trip. I would highly recommend this resort, and will certainly return again in the future.

The hotel is fantastic, from the views to the service to the great selection at the breakfast and lunch buffet. It is also the first hotel I've come across the manages to be great at being both a leisure hotel and catering for the business traveller (me on this occasion). Two let-downs really:

1. The fitness centre is only open from 7am to 8pm. If you are staying on business these hours really don't work. The centre should be 24 hours, or at the least be open from say 5am until 10pm to allow for business guests to get in before or after a business day.

2. The wifi is painfully slow. Blaming it on a conference isn't the right answer as I would expect a decent connection from a business hotel (as much as it is a leisure hotel it does cater to business needs). At times the connection was unusable for even basic tasks like bringing down email or even tweeting.

I was privileged enough to stay just for 2 nights at this hotel whilst in transit to another, which
after reviewing the facilities and awards it has won, can see why it has 5* status. However, I can't say it is the best 5* on the Island but when reviewing prices you can sense they don't claim to be, but they do claim the best spa on Cyprus

The hotel itself is of a fairly modern design, but such a shame built next to a pwer plant, which can spoil some sea and garden views

The reception was quick, pleasant and immediately offered a complimentary welcome drink
The bar staff were attentive, friendly from Eastern Europe
The room was large, great views overlooking gardens, pool and sea (no power plant view)
with the acreage of the resort extending to several pools, large extensive gardens, choices of restaurants, cafes and bars, multiple sporting facilities including football pitch and from the main resort to the main road a small village has grown with more on the planning board

I was staying on a Bed and Breakfast basis and whilst the choice was large, fresh and
plenty, the feeling of being in a upmarket canteen sprang to mind

I believe the typical locals that used to service the hotel have been in someway, not all,
been replaced with Eastern European staff and whilst most work hard and try hard I
think this was too much for them and I could see no intervention on the floor from
management

Room Tip: Try and get a south west facing room, whilst you don't get a sunrise you do get the counterpart...
