Great hotel with friendly staff . Nice beaches and good location away from the tourist area but only a short walk to the beach. Not a big hotel so no queing up for meals and always plenty of room around the pool area. The staff are great and helpfull but please note Nicos the barman no longer works there and is a great shame.

I stayed here with my mum for a pretty blissful week in April and left with only warm, fond and happy thoughts of the Kapetanios. I do think that the appeal of this hotel may be lost on certain persons- for example those accustomed to holidaying in slick, bland, predictable, modern chain hotels which all look drearily similar and you know exactly what you're gonna get. The Kapetanios is not really like that - hooray! For those who appreciate somewhere a bit more personal, ambient and friendly, I think you will like, I mean love, this place.

It's location is enviable. A stone's throw (literally! I tried it) away from the ocean and practically on Makarios Ave, where there are shops galore. About 20 mins stroll from the 'old' town. Further away from the 'tourist' area, so get the bus or drive up; unless you enjoy walking, and it IS a darn pleasant walk, of about an hour or so.

The rooms are in my opinion quite antiquated, with old-fashioned furnishings and fixtures. I loved it. Who wants everything to be new? They provide TV's with international channels, and a small fridge handy for storing water etc in. Beds were comfy. Our balcony had a side sea view which also looked over the residential streets surrounding the Kapetanios. Sitting on this balcony in the early evening having a pre-dinner glass of Thisbe was too relaxing for words.

The food was hearty, nutritious, delicious and basically no-nonsense.Considering that it is dirt cheap to stay here (well, it was for us anyway, we got a ridiculously cheap deal with Olympic), the guests get very well fed indeed. Expect bacon, eggs,cheeses, toast, cereal, tinned peaches& yoghurt for brekkie, and chicken, various meats, soft oiled roast spuds, rice, salads, veg, occasional pasta dishes, and simple desserts at dinner time. The Cypriot Night on Friday gives guests the chance to sample some really tasty traditional recipes such as pastichio and kleftiko. Yum! And...the dreaded chip never once made an appearance in the week that we were there. Brilliant. Do NOT expect a staggering amount of variety, or gourmet fare. This is a small, unpretentious family run establishment and the food reflects that.

The amenities such as the pool, gym, bar, terrace, etc, were always spotlessly, gleamingly clean and a cozy, laid-back atmosphere generally prevailed. We did not use the indoor pool but it looked good. The outdoor pool was very refreshing. There was one occasion where some local kids were being quite boisterous, so I told them off and they quietened down! Staff did not intervene however, which they probably should have.

The hotel staff were very cordial to us and seemed quite keen to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Beware ladies who are not familiar with Cypriot men: they are generally very self-confident and 'friendly' and have a slightly alarming tendency to become rather suggestive 5 minutes after introducing themselves. As such, there is the usual cocky barman and amorous receptionist insitu mooning over the female guests. It is quite amusing (to me anyway!), and should all be taken with that proverbial pinch of salt.

Alas Limassol, although still charming and beautiful of course, is something of a shadow of its' former self and for any travelers returning to the town after several years, prepare for a wee shock. It is now an extremely quiet city compared to, say, 10 years ago, and the night-life is decidedly low-key. There are a few bars in the tourist area but they are very thin on the ground. Of course, this is not necessarily a bad thing for those seeking a quieter trip. Having said that...venture into the old town into one of the many tavernas for a proper Cypriot night out. Have a meze and listen to the bouzouki all night long and maybe get up and dance. Most tavernas in the old town are not aimed at tourists so they are the real deal.

But as for the Kapetanios...I totally, totally loved this hotel. Don't pass it by!

I booked the holiday through olimpic holidays, flew from Belfast with eurocypria and stayed at the hotel in april. It was brilliant! the staff, especially nicos (the very friendly barman) were friendly and the food was very good (although it did get a bit repetitive) and the rooms were spotless and airy. We got an upgrade to the execuative building across the road and it was fantastic. it is 2 miniutes to the beach which isn't that nice but usually deserted. The kapentanios is bril! GO THERE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have just returned from a 2 week stay and found this hotel to be excellent value, Staff were helpful, room was cleaned daily to a good standard, food was plentiful and of a good standard. Hotel is ideally situated, our room had a sea view and overlooked the pool. The only problem was the behaviour in the pool, not by guests in the main, but by local youths who were allowed the use of the pool, and drive most of the guests out by playing rough ball games, which could become quite hazardous. Some form of supervision from hotel staff would have helped stop this, but everyone seemed to turn a blind eye.F.Finegan. Staffordshire.

Sadly, we are currently coming to an end of a two-week half-board holiday at the Kapetanios Hotel, Limassol. We cannot speak highly enough of the welcome and hospitality received, in fact it is the best 3-star hotel we have stayed in here in Cyprus.
We have been holidaying in Limassol for the past 15 years and have every intention of returning to the Kapetanios as soon as possible. The staff have been very friendly, efficient and were very quick to repair a fault with the electric shaver socket. We have a twin-bedded room of good size, reasonably equipped with a good standard of fittings and decor. It was cleaned and towels changed daily with sheets replaced every other day. Whilst linen appeared to be a little grey, we understand that this is due to the utilisation of de-salignated sea-water (to be commended). The air-conditioning and lifts worked well.
The entertainment 3 times a week during dinner was pleasant and appropriate. Meals were a little repetitious but none-the-less, well-cooked and, in particular, the Cypriot night was excellent. Dining room staff were attentive but not intrusive.
The pool and surrounding area were spotlessly clean and well-serviced.
All in all, a very pleasant experience and staff really seemed to appreciate our stumbling attempts at speaking in Cypriot with Kalimera (Good Morning) etc. We will return!

Four of us have just returned home from a very enjoyable 3 weeks stay at the Kapetanios. The hotel is very clean, the food is good and well cooked, also a friendly and helpful staff. It is a family run hotel and one is able to meet the owner every day if need to should a query arise. Although close to the zoo and main road there was little or no noise to worry about. The air conditioning works a treat which was needed every day due to the high temperatures. Go on, give it a try!!
