Amy Adejokun Section editor

Rest assured, the Meridien Spa & Resort is playing with the big boys. It is one of the best hotels not only in Limassol but on the whole of Cyprus. A complex able to pull off such a combination of luxury and friendliness is certainly worth a look, and the place is perfect for couples and families. It boasts a lagoon garden, a children's play area bearing a closer resemblance to a theme park than a sandpit, refined cuisine, and a superb spa, all of which are sure to make any holiday at this Meridien linger long in the memory.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Meridien Spa & Resort could hardly be closer to the water. It is located at the far end of the tourist area of Amathus, about 9 mi from the centre of Limassol, the old capital of Cyprus. Larnaca airport is 34 mi away along the motorway, and Paphos airport is a bit further off, some 43 mi away.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    In a hotel of this level, anything but the best level of accommodation would be a surprise, and it does not disappoint... Even the standard rooms (329 guest rooms in total) are pretty superlative, with quality bed linen, a fruit basket, and bottles of wine and water provided on arrival, as well as good soundproofing. The decor is locally inspired, with bas-reliefs on the wall paying tribute to those found at the Parthenon. You will immediately feel you are being pampered. Regardless of the category, all the rooms have parquet flooring. The facilities in each room also include a satellite television with a pay per view film system, a radio, a PlayStation console, an Internet connection (Wifi is available for just over £4 a day), a direct international phone line, individual air conditioning, a mini bar, tea and coffee-making facilities, a safe, a balcony with a table and chairs, and a desk. Another bonus is the separate rooms for the toilet and bathroom. The latter is spacious and has its own radio and telephone as well as bathrobes, slippers, hospitality products, and even a shoehorn. Needless to say, room service is available 24 hours a day.

    Overview 9.45 /10

    The largest hotel on Cyprus, the Meridien Spa & Resort was built in 1989 and renovated in 2003. Indeed, given that it covers an area of almost 25 acres, this does not come as a surprise. Yet in spite of its grand scale, the hotel manages to retain a typical Mediterranean feel, especially in its gardens (magnificent bougainvillea, white laurels, fig and orange trees, and blue-flowered jacarandas), which are landscaped with exposed stone walls and dotted with rocks. It even has an artificial lagoon with fish swimming in it and terraces around its edges, as well as 5 outdoor swimming pools with waterfalls and massage jets, plus a salt water pool! Immense shaded lawns lead down to the beach, offering complete relaxation. There is also an open air amphitheatre where shows are staged, and an impressive chapel for wedding ceremonies.
    Of course, the hotel itself is extremely stylish and exudes a sense of refined luxury, as exemplified by the impressive and brightly lit lobby. Just outside is the children's club, Club Penguin, which pulls out all the stops. It has its own swimming pool, restaurants, and sports facilities. Teenagers are also taken care of with the bowling alleys, sports facilities, and disco on Leisure Island. As for the spa, it is probably one of the best on the island. It consists of 3 indoor salt water pools heated to 26įC. The 'traditional' hammam is decorated in the North African style. There are no fewer than 34 treatment rooms, all softly lit and suffused with the scent of essential oils and other massage products from the Thalgo brand.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    To say the least, guests are spoilt for choice. Even if you just want a drink, there are no fewer than 6 bars, each with a different decor and an ambience all its own. Not counting Mickey, the children's restaurant (parents too are welcome here, of course), there are 7 restaurants. 4 of them are outdoor areas only open from May to October, for example Kojima, a sublime little terrace perched on stilts over the lagoon. It serves very fine Japanese cuisine, for example sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki, and makimono. Another option is the tavern, Le Vieux Village, a typical little Greek restaurant that is almost more real than in real life, with its exposed stone walls covered in vegetation. Naturally, the food served here is 100% Cypriot. Enalia specialises in fresh fish and seafood. Finally, La Trattoria serves up Italian dishes, as hinted by the name. The kitchen is on open display, so you can see for yourself just how fresh the pasta and pizzas are. Inside the actual hotel is Fleuri, where beautifully presented buffets are served up and where the dessert trolley is to die for. Themed evenings are organised on a regular basis. Finally, the Nautile and the Balthazar are ŗ la carte restaurants, the first of which features Mediterranean cuisine, the second fusion dishes.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The Meridien Spa & Resort has a truly charming beach with teak deckchairs and straw parasols planted near the edge of the clear water. It is not the most spacious of beaches (although there are big open lawns just behind it), and the sand could be finer and whiter, but it is clean and there are just a few pebbles, so there is no need to worry about putting on your beach sandals before going for a swim.

    To know

    A free shuttle service provides guests with transport to the centre of Limassol twice a day, where they will find many shops, restaurants, and nightclubs. The spa has been awarded many prizes, and one wing of the hotel is reserved exclusively for adults.

      The Saint-Raphael is a massive building on the edge of the water, offering good quality services in a colourful, heterogeneous decor that is somehow restrained. The only inconvenience: the beach and the gardens lack charm. With its very complete facilities, the establishment is recommended for all kinds of guests.

      One of the favourite haunts of the golden youth of Cyprus, as well as Brits and Russians, the Londa is a model of class, elegance and trendiness. The self-proclaimed "first boutique hotel in Cyprus", it and boasts a very specific understanding of luxury, as seen in the carefully thought out design of the lobby and spa centre. The service is attentive and perfect. The establishment offers a perfect retreat for party goers and young couples. However, it isn't very well suited for families, despite the beautiful surroundings.
