The variety of structures, the detailed decoration and the services provided assure a pleasant and joyful atmosphere, even if authenticity is a little mishandled.

    Location 5.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the edge of the water on Larnaca bay, 4 miles away from downtown. No real traffic in this area, but an artificial seaside place: shopping centres, restaurants, bars and lots of hotels on one side and the other of the street bordering the sea. To reach the hotel from Larnaca airport (located 7.5 miles away), you will need 15 minutes.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The standard rooms are spacious and comfortable, the decoration is discreet and elegant. The view of the sea and the gardens (direct or indirect) is nice. The view inside the property is however, disappointing. All the rooms are carpeted and equipped with satellite TV, direct telephone line, adjustable air-conditioning, a well-filled mini-bar, a large balcony, or a sundeck and a spacious bathroom with bathtub and towels for the pool. The 18 mini-suites with a large outdoor wooden sundeck have a jacuzzi, 6 large suites (at the 5th and 6th level) offer a living room area and an unique panorama of the bay. 24 hour room service.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1983 and renovated in 2000, the Golden Bay hotel is a luxury establishment with 193 rooms and suites. The outside 8-level building, a little too massive, is not really far from the big road that runs parallel to the bay. The large indoor spaces are warmly decorated (ornaments, Dutch-style paintings) and create an intimate atmosphere. The modern furniture combines the most contemporary shapes, the colours are bright, the light, the exotic plants are ever-present. Outside, the beautiful lagoon pool, the panoramic sundeck - entirely made of wood- of the main bar, the field planted with trees facing the sea, the restaurant with Cypriot specialities in a loose stone decoration create different pleasant universes (even if they are artificial) and always elegant. The sports facilities will not disappoint those who love water sports. The animation schedule, quite soft, respects the tranquility of all. For the most active people, they can enjoy the outdoors at night until very late.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The hotel offers four restaurants and the same number of bars. The meals are served buffet-style - fresh and delicious. The good quality cuisine is of local, French or international inspiration. Different thematic evenings (Italian, Asian, North-American, Mediterranean buffets, flambe cuisine, gala dinner) are organised to entertain dinners. Breakfasts are served on the large wooden panoramic sundeck, with a view of the sea and the gardens. For lunch and dinner, a huge room (650 seats) is decorated like a grotto and a waterfall.. Easy-going successful ambiance and large outdoor sundeck to enjoy the sun. You can also order a la carte meals in the same place. There are two additional possibilities to enjoy an a la carte menu: a French restaurant, in a more formal room (round tables, white tableclothes, attentive service), a Cypriot tavern - with deceptive decor - serves great mezzes. The hotel has 4 bars.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    At the edge of the gardens and lawns of the hotel, you will find the large beach, protected against the wind and waves by two docks located 330 feet offshore. The bay view is nice, the site is peaceful, the water is clear - but the sand is grey (and fine). A snack-bar serves light meals. A small private company offers a large variety of water sports while the hotel is in charge of your diving trips.

    To know

    An outdoor night spot in a great ''pirate'' atmosphere.
    Stay away from the rooms overlooking the interior of the property. Located too close to the street, they may seem noisy.

      The Beau Rivage hotel, located in a populated hotel area, offers good quality services and generally refined decor. The atmosphere is similar to that of a club and will suit families with children.

      • Location 4.0

      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 5.14

      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!

      • Location 7.74

      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.

      At first sight, this hotel with 52 guest rooms is not all that attractive. However, it enjoys an excellent location next to Saint-Lazare church, the welcome is friendly, and the rooms are well equipped, so the Livadhiotis turns out to be an excellent establishment for a stay in Larnaca. The hotel was entirely renovated in 2009.

      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.

      The Karpasiana club offers an unequal level of comfort, but it is adequate. Since the animation schedule is consequential, the establishment is recommended for families with kids rather than for those seeking organised vacations.

      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.
