“Very Good Accommodation”
Reviewed May 30, 2008

We had stayed in the Blue Crane in 1996 when they were relatively new so when we were visiting the area again in May 2008 had no hesitation in returning. The smallish complex is family owned and managed. It is very clean and well maintained. The maids are very helpful, hard working and always smiling! We were allocated a spacious one bedroom apartment overlooking the swimming pool with a well equipped kitchenette which included an oven, toaster and kettle, perfect for making snack meals. The bathroom includes a power shower and the bedroom is fully carpeted. There is a balcony which is furnished with table and chairs but this is overlooked by the other hotel balconies. The swimming pool is of medium size and there are ample (very comfy) sun loungers. The well stocked bar is a great starting and finishing point for a night out. There are many restaurants in the immediate vicinity, my favourite being Mamas and Danae. A two course meal for two adults with local wine and coffee in these establishments will cost around 60 Euros but do try Michaels Place where you can get a reasonable 3 course meal for 11 Euros per person and when you settle your bill you are likely to receive a voucher for 1/2 carafe of free house wine on your next visit. There is a very busy road at the front of the hotel which does get noisy in the evening - we found it best to sleep with the balcony doors closed. The apartments are fully air conditioned. There are many supermarkets nearby. Several of the guests at the Blue Crane are repeat visitors and I can see why - I do not intend to wait another 12 years before a repeat visit.

  • Liked — Good but unobsrusive service - plenty of restaurants in the immediate vicinity and close to the beach.
  • Disliked — Nothing

We stayed at the blue crane for a week as my parents are staying there for a month, lovely apartments, very basic but have everything you need. We have a 2 year old son and found that there was nothing much for him to do so we decided to hire a car for 3 days and that the best thing we did, we managed to get about the ireland and was great fun, the driving there is fine as they drive on the same side as us, weather was good, it was about 22 degrees so not too hot for my son. Didn't like much of the food but found the stallion to be really nice and Nicholas chinese restaurant, very friendly and food was lovely. I would recommend to either hire a car or go on a couple of trips as there is so much more to see, Troodos mountains is a really good day out and we took my son to the zoo at Pathos which we all loved.

Overall a good week and we are planning to go back next year.

  • Liked — Its central and everything you need
  • Disliked — didn't think the owners were very friendly

We stayed in the blue crane for 10 days in Aug, in 1 bedroom apartment, it was clean and well equiped,there was a miad service 5 times a week,hotel owners were friendly and helpful.

The pool is clean and a medium size.

The blue crane is located on the main coastal road of limassol, so u have to cross this road to go to the beach, but u couldnt have a full
sea view from the apartment since there are some buildings on the other side of the road. There are a lots of super markets, resturants
on this main road.

Limassol center is about 7 min taxi ride and will cost you (4-5 CYP)
Overall it was a nice vacation and will come back to blue crane in the next visit to limassol

We have just returned from a week at these apartments. They are spotlessly clean with maid service almost every day. The pool is the cleanest I've ever seen at any hotel. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful.

The beach across the road is clean and very nice. There are lots of good restuarants within walking distance.

However the apartments are right next to a very busy road which rarely quietens down. We didn't find the air con very effective and therefore we had to have the windows open and at four flights up it was noisy.

Stopped at the Blue Crane Appartments last week in July for 14 nights. Travelled with my Husband and 8 year old Daughter. We had a brilliant holiday. Booked a 1 bedroom apartment which was kitted out to a high standard. Air con in bedroom and living area .
Blue Crane is situated in the quieter part of Limassol very child friendly in the bars and restaurants. Try the Japanese Restaurant just left of the Hotel , you get your own personal chef cooking at the table fantastic. There is a local bus into town no 30 which runs pretty regular into the tourist bit. Lovely designer shops all with half price sales on.
Blue Crane is a friendly family run Hotel , lovely pool with plenty of sunbeds and a decent pool bar. Beach 5 mins across the road
which is a fairly busy duel carrigeway. Go left for a better bit of beach even though the the sand is black. Right for cheeper water sports. All in all a good family holiday.

  • Liked — Rooms Fantastic with air con
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Try Japanese Restaurant 2 mins Left of Apartments

I Went to the Blue Crane on 6th of August this year,2006.
I went with my husband and 8 year old daughter for one week, and what a lovely time we had! The hotel was very quiet and the road which ran along the front was never noisy or too busy to cross. The beach was not too far away and ,although there were better beaches further along, there were many bus stops for you to catch a cheep ride to them.
We felt that the Blue Crane was in a more quiet area ,which suited us and was central for touring the rest of the island. Within walking distance from the hotel was a range of child friendly bars and restaurants, supermarkets and shops again all with really friendly staff. The hotel room itself was roomy, clean, very well equipped and with a welcoming air con system!
The pool too was clean and child friendly, even the small restaurant/bar was family run and again very child friendly. We would certainly go back to the Blue Crane!!

  • Liked — cleanliness, location
  • Disliked — some steps so not sure for elderley
  • Tips/Secrets — cheaper car hire in front of hotel, than from rep!
