“GREAT LOCATION”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel for 3 days at july 2012.It is a great hotel,clean just few meters from the Ayia Napa famous beach and just 5 minutes walk from the center of Ayia Napa.The staf is very helpful and the only ''problem'' is that the west wing that we stayed is a little far from the main hotel and the puplic places of these wing (corridors etc)are old and need renovation.

Room Tip: try to get a room in the main bulting

We have just visited this hotel for 2 weeks and it was absolutely lovely. Rooms are comfortable and have everything you need including coffee making facilities, fridge/mini bar and a lovely big balcony. Staff are great and very caring, they offer a 5 star service in every way possible and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and this is the best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel. There is the usual things like bacon, eggs, hash browns etc. but you can also get different coffees, mochas and chocolate and even champagne and smoked salmon. The Hotel has its own section of the beach and sunbeds are always plentiful both at the pool and at the beach. We went to a couple of the themed evenings and they were good as well. This hotel is superb and we are going to book to go back very soon. There were people that stay at the hotel year after year and I can certainly understand why.

We will do a review seperately for the hotel, but I just had to say a big thank you to Manfred and all the staff at the Grecian Bay. My husband got pneumonia whilst in Aiya Napa and the hotel staff could not do enough. The hotel staff gave first aid assistance and called the ambulance and then paid for a taxi for myself and my daughter to go to the hospital and also let a manager come with us. They provided a late hotel room free of charge for us once my husband was discharged and even was there to welcome him back and all cheered when he walked through the door. It was a scary time, but you were there and could not have done more. We will be returning soon once Mike is totally better because the hotel is fabulous, and so are you.

just returned from our 16th consecutive year at the Grecian Bay, must say very little changes,from the moment you arrive, the reception staff are always very helpful,as are all the staff, cannot do enough for you, all our requests were met, private beach is a major plus point for the hotel, sunbeds are allocated on arrival and are yours for the period of your stay, Paris and his beach team always look after you.Breakfast is of a high standered and selection of food is excellent.The Grecian Bay is located in a great position and is an excellent hotel to relax and recharge those batteries, could not ask for a better holiday experience, returning for the last 16 years says it all. Looking forward to our return in 2013 already.

We have just returned from our 10th visit to the Grecian Bay hotel and yet again cannot fault the service that we received from the wonderful staff. All the requests we made to the hotel were done without any fuss or problems. The greeting we received on our arrival from the Reception team (George & Maria) was lovely, and as always the service we received from the hotel porters (Sony), beach team (Paris) was excellent, all those mentioned are a credit to the hotel.

We stayed from 28.06.12. for 14 nights and never found any problems with breakfast, we are early riser and found the restaurant more than half empty at around 7:45 a.m., the selection of food was excellent and we found the staff very helpful and friendly.

The booking of your sun loungers for the duration of your stay is a real good point for this hotel but a word of warning that Sundays can be very busy as the locals use the hotels beach bar and are able to hire sun loungers that have not been occupied after the 10:30 a.m. cut off point.

We are returning to this hotel for a week in August, it meets all the needs of what we want from our holiday, excellent facilities, value for money, great food & most of all friendly staff.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms in the main building seem to be quieter.

This was our third stay at Grecian Bay: twice before in August, this time in July. Ayia Napa is the best place for sandy beaches and clear Mediterranean and what Grecian Bay offers is an excellent hotel beach, an effective sun-bed booking system and a comfortable, friendly hotel environment. The food was very good, and, though some may recall that it was better 20 year ago, today it's also delicious, especially the gourmet dishes for dinner by GB's excellent chef. True, it can get pretty crowded at the restaurant, especially at breakfast, but what can one do: it's the height of the season. For room-booking tips I would not recommend the west wing: the rooms are the same but the laminate floor can throw some people off. Also, a simple kids' menu for lunch/dinner would be a good idea for the hotel management to consider. After all, there are quite a few kids at the hotel nowadays. In conclusion let me say that my five-year old and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grecian Bay and consider coming back in the future.

We stayed here 10yrs ago, then it was a wonderful hotel, now upon returning with our two children 8 & 6, really disappointed, upon on arrival we thought we had been taken to Russia, this being no understatement. I have never experienced so many rude and abrupt people in my life, breakfast was a fight who could get their food first, and talk about pile high their plates and then leave it for it only to be chucked away, real eye opener. The waiter dropped food on the floor and dismissed the fact he did and walked past the items twice looking at it, as if it was going to fly to the bin by itself, waitresses who can't understand English and no they weren't Cypriot. We had two rooms the 1st being clean but very basic, the 2nd had a wooden laminate floor which had been sanded down and unleft which made walking on very course and sandy and looked a mess, a very 2* bathroom, with shower rail hanging down. The rooms were very disappointing, but they were cleaned every day. We booked this hotel also as it said it had a kids club, NO they never, there was a small room which they could go and colour with a very bored looking woman. There was no outside activities for kids nor was there any entertainment for kids or families.
When the children argued, we threatened we would take them to the kids club if they didn't behave.....it had the effect to make them behave, my son who only just turned 8 wanted to come back home as he was bored. Although the pool was lovely and surroundings, there's only so much playing in the water before kids get bored.
This hotel is only suitable for couples, and if you enjoy the company of Russians you will love it!!!
Ps. Food was ok, they don't really like you ordering from the children's menu as we were told by the maitre de , this would take longer as they had to cook it downstairs ?? There were no good choices for the children if they are fussy eaters, just a warning.
I would definitely not return to this hotel again, it's a shame because it did really use to be wonderful.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay in our hotel. We have noted with regret your intention not to return to our hotel. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to hear your constructive comments during your stay in order to rectify where necessary. However, we would like to comment on your review as follows:
- Our guests are not only from Russia, and we have many guests from other countries like England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria etc. We understand your disappointment with the busy hours at breakfast, but this was probably between the hours 9.30 – 10.30. Breakfast is served from 7.00 – 10.30 and between 7.00 and 9.30hrs, guests can enjoy a more relaxing breakfast.
- Our Food and Beverage team makes every effort to provide service of high standards in the restaurants and we feel sorry that you did not experience the same
- All rooms have been renovated two years ago and feature all facilities required for a five-star hotel and are cleaned and checked daily from our housekeeping department. The floor in all rooms is special designed wooden parquet, not laminate.
- The kids club is an indoor area with opportunities for many activities for the children like painting, playing games, watching movies and interacting with other kids. From our experience with the kids until now, they enjoy their time in the kids club. We also have an outdoor playground where the kids can spend time and play accompanied by their parents. Children’s menus are also available in all our restaurants with a variety of options for the kids. The fact that it might take some time for the kids meals to be ready is expected as they are prepared instantly when ordered.
All your concerns have been taken into serious consideration and we do apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. We would like to assure you that at Grecian Bay Hotel, we always attempt to make each guest’s stay as memorable as possible and we do hope to have the pleasure to have you again as our guest and to have the opportunity to refute the impression you have.
