We booked in to the Grecian Sands in October 2013 for a relaxing week away. Other family members had booked in to the nearby Grecian Bay Hotel. Upon check in, the reception staff were very friendly and courteous and asked how our journey to Cyprus had been. We were allocated rooms to the front of the hotel, which isn't the best view, however we have to accept we are first timers and a sea view is likely to be extra.
The main part of the hotel was very clean, airy and spacious. The rooms are definitely dated and probably haven't been refurnished since the hotel was built, however they were freshly painted, clean and the beds were really comfortable. The room has a free, coded safety deposit safe and a mini bar, fridge and kettle.
Breakfast was excellent with a really good choice to satisfy anyone. There is an adorable little ginger cat which comes to sit near you if you sit outside for breakfast. Of course she likes a few bits of ham from your omelette or a bit of cheese if its on offer.
The bar was quite expensive, however we only used this for a nightcap when returning early on a couple of occasions.
I can see why people complain about the sunbed situation as there is a nice sandy area overlooking the sea, where people appear to keep their towels from the daytime and 'reserve' the beds for the next day. There were, however many beds around the pool as the sandy bit seems to be the popular bit. The hotel staff we encountered from the cleaning staff to the reception and waiters were all smartly dressed, courteous and helpful. I would definitely return soon.
