Hotel St RaphaŽl Hotel 5 star
Easyexperts
Amathus Avenue, Po Box 51064 Limassol, Cyprus
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 1.0 /10

    The Saint-Rafael hotel is located on the waterfront, 9 miles away from Limassol downtown, at the outskirts of the summer resort. This is one of the most peaceful places on the bay - no shopping centres or restaurants. The surrounding areas are not really developed and the Mediterranean nature is even better. To reach the hotel from Larnaca airport (located 34 miles away), will need a 35-minute drive.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The rooms are quite cheerful and spacious. They offer a direct view of the sea, the pool or inside the property. The fabrics are colourful, the furniture combines the relaxation of rattan and the formality of mahogany-coloured wood. The rooms are equipped with satellite TV, direct telephone line, adjustable air-conditioning, a well filled mini-bar, a balcony and a large bathroom with a bathtub and towels for the pool. The room service allows you to order meals 24-hours a day.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Saint-Rafael, a large hotel of 216 rooms built in 1987, surprises you from the first view but, like most of the nearby hotels it has a heavy and massive appearance. The feeling quickly fades when you encounter the colourful 1970's decor in the hallway and experience the quality of the services. Everything is contained in a 91-acre field where there is a large outdoor lagoon pool, a fitness centre and a state-of-the-art bodybuilding club (hydro-massage, face and body treatments), comfortable and spacious rooms, a very wide range of restaurants and bars and a private marina. This way you can go for sea excursions directly from the hotel.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The meals are served buffet-style and there are thematic evenings (Italian, Cypriot, fish, barbecue, Mexican, Lebanese). Despite the variety of the influences, the cuisine has some very fine flavours. You can have your breakfast and lunch in a fresh, bright room (paved, wooden and rattan chairs), with a view of the sea, while, in the evening, the restaurant offers a more solemn atmosphere. There are also two options for a la carte service: a restaurant serving Lebanese specialities (in the evening) - the decor is rather Oriental and very contemporary and the marina restaurant, close to moored ships. 3 bars complete the services offered.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    There are lots of large lawn areas leading down to the large grey beach with fine sand. More vegetation and trees would improve the image of the establishment and limit the too-direct view of nearby constructions. But the water is clear, reserved beach chairs, sunshades and water sports facilities make the place nicer. Caution - you have to go around one hundred miles away from the edge to be able to swim.

      A good destination for couples or families who want to spend active vacations, pretty far from the bustle of downtown Limassol. You can also choose to do nothing but relax on the edge of the pool.

      Both families and couples will enjoy the Four Seasons, offering great service and absolute peace. The luxurious amenities and the gastronomy bring even more pleasure to your stay in this hotel. A must: the double hydro-massage bathtub in each bathroom, a real sign of distinction for the hotel.

      Located on Limassol Bay , the Hawaii is a large hotelier complex facing the Mediterranean Sea. Abundance, comfort and luxury, this could be its creed! There are lots of services and facilities available if you want to rest, have treatments done, fulfill your gastronomic desires or do activities in an atmosphere full of nice decor and vegetation, like tropical gardens.

      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.

      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.
