Hotel Crown Resorts Henipa Hotel 3 star
Easyexperts
Dhekelia Road Larnaca, Cyprus
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Crown Resorts Henipa is very poorly located, next to an intersection, in the second row of buildings alongside the road that leads from Larnaca to Ayia Napa. Although it underwent extensive renovations in 2009, this charmless establishment will only please those who expect international standards and a swimming pool. The beach is across the road, some 150m away, but is definitely not worth the trouble of going to.

    Location 4.0 /10

    The Crown Resorts Henipa is located in the touristic suburbs of Larnaca, on the road to Ayia Napa. Located some 4 mi from the town's centre, it is wedged between two roads in a residential neighbourhood (there is a bus stop in front of the hotel). There are a few snack bars and restaurants along the road that are accessible on foot. Expect a quarter of an hour at least to get to the airport (6,2 mi).

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 164 rooms of the hotel come in two main categories. There are standard rooms (120 of these) that occupy the main building and 40 more luxurious bungalows located next to the swimming pools. The standard rooms are much like the rest of the establishment, and offer little else than a decent level of comfort. They look out onto the road or the swimming pool and include a small sitting room. They also include an (empty) mini bar, a free safe, individual air conditioning, a hair dryer... the basic amenities are all there. The interior is simple but the furniture is of good quality. Unfortunately, there are no windows in the bathrooms, and the only lighting is provided by a pale neon light. However, on the upside, they do include a bathtub.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    When the hotel was renovated in 2009, a small effort was made in terms of interior decorating in the lobby and the adjacent bar. But apart from those little touches, the hotel follows an international standard. The three storey main building is cruelly lacking in charm. The bungalows were built around the central swimming pools, effectively blocking out the horizon. Despite numerous palm trees and potted flowers, it's hard to dismiss the feeling that every m has been systematically covered with concrete slabs. The outdoor swimming pools are the establishment's main asset (each includes a paddling pool for the children) and one even includes a proper pool bar so that you can enjoy a sip and a dip. The third (indoor) pool stays open in the winter. The facilities include a tennis court (in excellent state), a fitness centre (with weight lifting machines), a pool table and a tennis table. There are two small outdoor playgrounds for children.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The Crown Resorts Henipa only includes one restaurant, which serves three buffet meals per day. Located on the ground floor next to the pool bar, the lighting isn't great and was obviously not included in the refurbishment work undertaken in 2009. Finally, the large round tables meant for the guests to dine at are not ideal if you want some intimacy. A different theme is put on every evening for the buffet and there is a special menu for kids.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The bay in Larnaca does not exactly offer prime beaches; true, the water is crystal clear and the beach is well equipped but the sand is black and includes many pebbles. Also, the beach is narrow and there is no escape from the cement factory and the sight of cargo ships waiting to get into the city's port. The closest beach to the establishment is not different from the beaches of the other hotels of the area, and the fact that you have to cover 150m and cross a busy road to get there is enough to discourage anyone; you're better off by the pool. Note: a nearby nautical club offers snorkelling and diving sessions.

      The Amorgos is not a hotel where you would spend the whole day. However, located in the centre of Larnaka, this small establishment is a perfect pied--terre for a couple of nights or even a longer stay on the island. Larnaka is conveniently located for discovering the surrounding areas, and if you fancy going for a swim, the hotel Amorgos is only 100 m from the city's beach, along which there is a nice promenade lined with palm trees. The hotel was renovated in 2008 and boasts a modern and warm interior.

      The bay of Larnaca really isn't Cyprus's top seaside destination, but the Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows is indisputably the establishment best suited to help you forget this. It offers a comprehensive set of services thanks to the excellent facilities found on a limited amount of space, especially for its 228 guest rooms. In return though, do not expect to find great expanses of land in a place where every square inch is optimised!

      This small, intimate and contemporary hotel caught our attention because of the way its particularly original style is completely different to that of other Cypriot hotels. Its location is perfect for exploring the distinctive old district and more modern streets of the city of Larnaca, and the beach is never far away.

      The Sandy Beach offers various good quality services in a sterile Cypriot decor. The animation schedule, the large variety of sporting facilities and the service will assure that guests spend a nice family vacation with organised activities. Too bad: the beach is a little too gloomy.
