“Great location, pools and beach. Sea view rooms recommended.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Grecian Bay was excellent. Massive, clean pools and just a few yards to a fabulous beach with private sunbeds which can be reserved for your entire stay, but we never had a problem finding beds near the sea. We had sea view rooms which we felt we well worth the extra cost. Sitting on the balcony enjoying the view of the bay and listening to the waves was so relaxing. Rooms were bright and clean. Only criticisms regarding rooms were that the beds were hard and the shower pathetic.
Breakfast was okay but certain aspects such as limited choice of fresh fruits, no choice of milks and no real fruit juice were not in keeping with a 5 star hotel.
Also, be aware there are a large number of Russian guests who seem to have no understanding of the concept of queuing. Initially this was annoying but over our stay we turned this into more of a sport preventing any queue jumping and holding our ground.
The location is excellent. Close to the main area for restaurants and bars, but away from the noise.
Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel and have no hesitation in returning.

Room Tip: We chose sea view rooms on top floor and found these perfect. Sea view well worth the extra cost.

This hotel is a real treat, the staff are attentive without being too 'in your face'. The beach is by far the best on the island and the indoor ice cold Jacuzzi is an ideal way to cool off after a lazy day sunbathing.

I would like to give special mentions to Elena (Guest Relations), George (Reception) and George (Fisherman's Hut) for their dedicated customer care.

We have been visiting the hotel for many years and have seen many changes, all for the better, and I hope they can continue the momentum. Keep up the good work, we will be back next year.

Room Tip: Always best to get a sea view or the West Wing which gives lovely views of the Harbour

I've recently returned with my family after a three day break at the Grecian Bay Hotel. We have been going to this hotel annually for the past seven years and have enjoyed every experience there. I've always believed that it is harder to please a regular client, as regulars will certainly note the differences in quality and price, but every visit has been an absolute pleasure.
From the courteous staff to the efficient check-in, the Grecian Bay sparkles as the jewel of the Mediterranean in this exclusive part of Ayia Napa.
From a luxury-sized swimming pool which does not feel overcrowded, to the spacious and modern bedrooms with their marble finished bathrooms, this hotel is located on one of the finest strands of beaches with their crystal-clear waters.
Breakfast is superb - the widest selection available from continental to English - salmon and Champagne - literally everything under one roof! The staff are attentive, ensuring your dining experience is problem-free. The sun-beds are reserved for you around the gigantic swimming pool, towels provided, and a wonderful complimentary ice-chilled face cloth to relieve you from the scorching rays of the sun.
Adjacent to the swimming pool you will find a pool bar, and a grill restaurant which serves tasty lunches. The hotel also offers free scuba-diving lessons and water aerobics (on certain days); a large, air-conditioned games room is available close by to entertain the children - from table tennis to snooker tables and video arcades.
There is a kid's club which offers babysitting and a hair salon on the same level as the swimming pool. This five-star hotel also offers a well equipped gym and indoor pool and jacuzzi.
The Grecian Bay certainly qualifies as a five-star hotel that lives up to its reputation every time.

Room Tip: All rooms (side-view and front view) offer sea views, however the more spacious rooms are located cl...

Having had a very relaxing week at the Grecian Bay I can vouch for other reviewers' comments. This hotel is in a stunning location with fabulous views and right on the beach, it even has its own private section! You can choose whether to relax on a beach sunbed or around the enormous pool. The gardens were a delight too. Our room was very spacious and tastefully furnished. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and were totally spoilt for choice of food, which was superb. The staff were friendly and helpful. Well deserving of its five stars. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: A sea view room on a high floor.. We think you would still see the sea with a side view room as well...

We have just returned from an incredibly relaxing holiday in our most favorite hotel - we will definitely return. Five stars and yet not overbearing, comfortable, clean, nicely designed and extremely well managed. The staff are friendly, helpful and pleasant, the restaurant is more than ample (we especially liked the breakfasts). Most of all - the incredibly blue sea and a nice sandy beach with allocated chairs without an extra fee and a clean towel as often as needed. We have had a lovely time, the sound of the waves had all the calming effect needed to relax from a stressful job. No animation team to drive you crazy, no whistles blowing for unwanted activities, you can read, swim, walk and simply enjoy life. A great place to be - and THANK YOU to all who work hard to make it so.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend sea view.

This hotel was a really surprise for us, it has a great location, far from the noisiness of Aiya Napa, but not so far to go on a walk there. It has beautiful clean private beach with own sunbeds (without any fee). The sea was clean like in the Caribbean, warm and calm. What I missed the most - activities for the kid´s, but overall we enjoyed it as much as it was possible. Amazing holiday, definitely coming back again one day.

Room Tip: The room with a sea view is a must :)

Returning visit, To my piece of paradise.
The Grecian Bay has everything you would need for a perfect relaxing holiday.
With a private beach, feet from the sea. And allocated sunbeds, this is my idea of a perfect holiday location.
if you're looking for a quality hotel, helpful staff and a wonderful beach front location look no further than the Grecian Bay.
Located within easy walking distance of the centre of Ayia Napa . The rooms are clean and tidy with TV, and coffee making facilities, and wonderful views of the beach and pool.
There is even a fitness room with new equipment, and staff on hand to help you.
With a large outdoor swimming pool and lifeguard on hand this is a safe family friendly hotel.
Travelling as a single person I was made to fill very welcomed.
From the minute I walk in the staff were to help me.
I am already looking forward to visiting again next year.
