We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this was average and the most expensive especially as breakfast was not provided.
Friendly reception staff at check in and helped with taxi booking, sightseeing tips etc. Room a decent size and clean, but had an ant issue! Location is pretty good for the tourist area, with s hort walk to the beach and close to number 30 bus stop to town. We enjoyed the karaoke at the Step Inn pub nearby, plus big sandwiches at Stevos near the Teepee bar. However it is a bit like just being back at home, and not ideal for a sightseeing holiday. Also Limassol as a whole seemed a bit run down, and the tourist strip lacked vibrancy. Best places to eat further east just past KFC where you can get a good 3 course meal for about 13 euros. Bus trip to Kourion was a bit of a pain using local transport and maybe not worth the efforrt if you´ve been to Efesus or the like.
Wifi is free in reception area as you´d expect, but does not make it to pool area.
The shower was actually a mini-bath with a very curved bottom which was rather tricky to use and the curtain didn´t provide full protection.
The service taxi reserved by hotel arrived a bit early, but waited for us and took the hassle out of going to Pafos.
Limassol was my least favourite place in Cyprus, but if you really want to go there, then this place will suffice and although expensive for Cyprus, it is reasonably priced for Limassol. Yet another reason to avoid this city!! (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

I woke up at my hosts house and chatted with the family for a bit in the morning and was off again. My last day in Cyprus. I had about a 70 KM drive to my final stop of Limassol. I wish I had more time here in Cyprus, but didn't. There is a lot more to see, but I didn't have time. The weather was not great here and not good for beach time, but …
... the left and all the traffic signs are English style. A lot of signs in English but also quite a few in Russian, which says a lot.
The old town is small and has more character and we walked a little through it and then to the brand new marina, which has been designed to have style but, like so many such new creations, succeeds mainly in being twee. Time for a beer before I had to get off to ...
... good if you like big hotels and want to do little more than sit on the beach or by the pool - and well presented for that - but it's not really my style. I got changed and then walked down to the marina for a beer. A lovely day, sunny and warm but with a strong breeze coming off the sea so a tad cooler than it might have been.
We met late for dinner and went into Limassol with the Cypriots for a typical taverna meal. Very good fish and mere. Back late as well.
Its amazing proximity to the heart and soul of the city is equally attractive to local residents and visitors. You can walk the promenade, check out the super yachts, shop in designer boutique, enjoy a variety of restaurants and lounge bars or take in some of the cultural events on offer.
Staring at an 88m super yacht certainly lends ...
... there were various beach projects which made beaches greener and enhance special access for disabled visitors, to increase their conference numbers, invest money in new golf courses, marina development, casinos and condo hotels, as well as widen what they have to offer by having special tourism sectors including rural tourism, health tourism, wellness, sports tourism, cultural and agrotourism.
