“Very nearly a 5 star”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a great hotel, very convenient for a wide variety of restaurants and the main shopping area. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Part of the sunbathing area overlooks the main beach, yet it is private, it making it one of the most relaxing we've ever had in which to enjoy the sun.

the Grecian Sands is better than the average four star hotel, but there were a few minor points which let you know this isn't a five star e.g. less of the breakfast fruit was fresh (tinned pineapple), the towels were less fluffy that they could have been and my wife missed having bedroom slippers provided... I did say they were minor points.

Dear Mr. Ken M,

Thank you for choosing our property for your recent stay and your kind review on Trip Advisor.
We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit overall, with our private sunbathing area overlooking the main beach being a highlight. Receiving positive feedback is a great motivator for all the staff in the hotel and helps us to maintain and continue to improve our service standards.

We also really appreciate your understanding of our hotel being a four star and not being able to provide some of the luxuries of a five star hotel , and our goal is to address your concerns so that we can ensure you have an exceptional experience on your next visit, therefore, once again, we are very thankful for your feedback.

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you back to our hotel in the near future.

Warm Regards,

Just returned on Saturday 26/7/14 from this wonderful hotel. Upon arrival we were told our room had been upgraded from a side sea view to a front sea view room for free which was a welcome surprise!! The room was lovely, nice and roomy with a lovely bathroom and shower area. The aircon was a godsend and the beds were very comfortable. The pool area was very nice and clean and the water was warm. They had an indoor pool but it was freezing so we didnt really use this which was a shame. Maybe if they made it a bit warmer it would be a bit busier in there. The small sandy beach area with the white umbrellas are free to use by all the hotel guests but beware that the area with the blue umbrellas need to be paid for as the beach is not owned by the hotel. We did get nabbed the first day we were there because it wasn't made clear to us that this area was not part of the hotel. The cost was 2.50 euro per lounger and per umbrella but it was worth it! The water was lovely and warm and there's a life guard nearby as the sea can get a bit rough when it is windy. There is also a nice coast path if you want to have a walk by the sea and you can also walk along the whole of Liminaki beach if you want to be nosey. The food in the hotel is lovely although the portions are huge! The food is reasonably priced as well and the breakfast buffet is substantial with a hot bar, fruit bar and pastries and cereal. We also had access to a shop situated on site which was well stocked with the normal UK newspapers, magazines, beachwear and presents all reasonably priced. The walk to the town centre wasn't too bad and helped us to burn off the calories amassed during the day time. It is also a pleasant walk lined with lots of places to have dinner and local shops. The staff at the hotel are wonderful - especially Sakis and Andreas who work in the grill bar. The only bad points were the poor wifi signal (we were on the fourth floor) and the lack of Sky Sports News channel! We were very unhappy to leave but we will be back for two weeks next year to enjoy this lovely hotel again!

Room Tip: Sea view is best. If you are on a bed and breakfast deal you can use their minibar fridge area to s...

This hotel is a solid 4 star, we stayed bed & breakfast and the breakfast was delicious!
The room was lovely, very large bed, although the bed was quite hard.
Nice pool area and comfy sunbeds with a mattress. The best part for me was the man made beach area which was part of the hotel. We sunbathed there and had easy access to the beach down some steps and then also to the pool. Towels are provided which is great too. Stunning beach below the hotel, great for snorkeling along the coastline and there are caves too.
Perfect hotel location, far enough away from the crazy night life of Ayia Napa but only about a 15 minute walk to bars, restaurants and the 'square'.
Would definitely go back here again!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are a lot extra but if you can afford it choose one.

Totally in love with this hotel, visited numerous times and everytime exceeds the last. Staff are amazing and can't do enough for you. The rooms are modern, bright and large. Pool is huge, with more than enough sunbeds. Added extra of a little beach area at the top of the cliff. beautiful views and I would definitely recommend this for a relaxing break if you wanted to be far enough out of Ayia Napa to avoid the noise but close enough to pop in during the day and for dinner on an evening.
