Hotel Palm Beach Hotel and Bungalows Hotel 4 star
Easyexperts
Dekelia Road Larnaca, Cyprus
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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 5.14 /10

    The Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows stands on the road linking Larnaca to Ayia Napa, in the touristic suburb of Larnaca and on the bay of the same name. There is hardly a thing to do in the vicinity, confirming that its location really isn't this hotel's best asset. Larnaca city centre is about 4 mi away (there is a bus stop in front of the hotel) and you will need to allow at least a quarter of an hour to get to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Palm Beach is quite a large hotel, with 228 guest rooms. In the elongated building set parallel to the beach, half the 184 standard rooms have a view of the sea and the other half look out over the car park planted with trees - no half-measures here. Whatever your view, you will be able to admire it from a balcony. Inside, you will find everything you need. The rooms aren't particularly spacious but they are well equipped (bathtub, stock mini bar, satellite television, a free safe, etc) and proudly display spring-like colours, on the bedspreads with large blue flower patterns, for example, and on the drapes that are a delicate shade of green. All of them were renovated in 2003.
    Located at the back of the main building, the bungalows do not have a view of the sea. As half of them were renovated in 2007, two different generations of buildings coexist side by side. Built around a curvy pool, the bungalows make for a lovely area, ideal for families especially. Elegantly decorated with an emphasis on wood, they can accommodate up to 4 people, who will certainly enjoy the large terrace or balcony (the interior amenities are identical to the ones found in the standard rooms). There is a pool and a bar/restaurant standing alongside it reserved for the guests staying in the bungalows.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1981, the Palm Beach was modified several times. The main building was entirely renovated in 2003 but is still the same long 4 storey block parallel to the beach. At the back of this building, 38 bungalows were added on 2 levels around a swimming pool reserved for their residents. With 3 pools (including an indoor one), 4 restaurants, 5 bars, some tennis, volleyball, and squash courts, a playground, a video game arcade, a hammam, sauna, gym, etc, the most striking aspect of this hotel is its high level of equipment in spite of a limited amount of space. The presence of several bar/restaurants and pools balances the impression of promiscuity conveyed by the narrow strip of land separating the building from the beach. There is even a pool reserved for children which, in addition to being shallow, is equipped with a mini water slide. It is a shame, however, that the children's club should only be open seasonally, namely from late June to the end of August.
    The hotel smells new and the decor alternates from one restaurant and bar to another from kitsch-classical to modern styles, enhancing the impression of diversity within the hotel. To sum up, at the Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows everyone will be able to find the ambience that suits them best. The quality of service also lives up to the hotel's high standards in terms of amenities. Room service available 24 hours a day, a beauty parlour, a hair salon, baby-sitting on request... all of these services are available within the hotel.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    4 restaurants and 5 bars: this is how many we counted at the Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows. As several bars also serve light meals in the daytime (all except for the piano bar), the hotel claims to have more. In any case, there is no lack of choice or quality in terms of catering. Two main restaurants, one for breakfast and lunch and another one for dinner, enable guests to eat from a buffet for every meal of the day. In summer only, a tavern/bar, where la carte Cypriot cuisine is served, and an outdoor restaurant appropriately named La Pergola, complement this offer. Finally, theme nights are organised on a regular basis (Cypriot, Caribbean, Oriental, Chinese, Indian, barbecue, etc), as well as small concerts at the 'beach bar' and at the piano bar.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    The Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows has direct access to the beach: all you need to do is walk across the public pedestrian walkway that runs alongside it. The black sand beach itself isn't fantastic and the view of the cargo ships waiting to dock in the port of Larnaca and the factories on both sides aren't very attractive either. Plus, artificial breakwaters restrict the view of the horizon. Once again, it is the quality facilities of this place that enhance the overall offer of this hotel. Thanks to the water sports club, it is possible to go jet-skiing, parasailing, scuba diving (with an external club), sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, etc.

    To know

    The Palm Beach is ideally suited to families, whether they are staying in one of the bungalows sleeping 4 guests or in one of the 40 connecting standard rooms. The great number of available activities gives everyone of every age an opportunity to have fun. The only snag is the children's club being open in high season only.

      The Golden Bay hotel is one of the better establishments on the island. The variety of structures, the detailed decoration and the services provided assure a pleasant and joyful atmosphere, even if authenticity is a little mishandled.

      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 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.

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.
