Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Limassol
Some good tips
We were at the Four Seasons last week second week of september 2005 and had wonderful time. We believe it is one of the great hotes (we have stayed in many 5* plus hotels around the world). Great attention to detail.
Now to some good tips
We asked to extend our trip there were various people at recption and all quoted different rates, they all seem choose the rate that fits who/what/how long u stay. Initially they were unable to match the expedia rate. Finally we spoke to a wonderful person called Andreas, try and deal with him if you need anything (and defeinately not Joanna, she has a particularlly bad attitude and unfriendly), he has a wonderul smile and very helpful.
George is the bar manager he is great, try and look out for him
You must go to the cocktail evening thrown by the hotle manager, very enjoyable
You must look at the timetable there are loads of things to do, we went on a cocktail demonstration eve, what great time and free cocktails. Go to some of the free (only £1) trips in the morning around cyprus.
Dont bother with half bored there are some wonderful restaurants near by including El Saprore, an italian next door.
Finally Cpyrus is now half russian, if you can learn a few words it might be helpful.
Have a great time
Very nice indeed!
Disappointed as I am to have missed Jeremy Beadle/Pauline Quirk....(!) at the Four Season it's hard to support one of the previous reviewers opinions.
The Four Seasons is an excellent hotel, deserving of the 5* rating.
No smell of fish whatsoever next to the al-fresco eating area, mainly because they were alive i think! I've got an accutely sensitive nose, and the previous comment about this was ridiculous.
The referb'd rooms are sumptuous and extremely well done (even the standard ones). Beautiful bathrooms and huge very soft beds. Our in-land facing rooms had the advantage of the sun in the evenings, so we sat on the balcony and enjoyed the view inland.
The interior of the hotel overall is very luxurious and had exactly the right feel to it.
We tried the Oriental restaurant - it was fairly pricey (about £90 for drinks, wine, and a 4 course banquet) - but the service and atmosphere were stunning. The food was delightful, even compared with somewhere like New World in London.
Service throughout the hotel was excellent, with friendly approachable staff who actually did care about their guests.
My only negative comments would be that the garden/pool area are actually not that large - you are close (but not uncomfortably so) to fellow guests, so not particularly private.
The shower in the bathroom had a habit of changing temperature often, although this was down to me using it full blast. If you backed off the pressure it was fine.
The bed might be a bit too soft for some.
Prices for drinks were highish as you might expect, but we tended to supply our own water from the many shops opposite when by the pool.
The Salad buffet is excellent value for lunch if you don't demand slabs of meat! The hotel's buffets were superb.
If you want to eat outside the hotel, i would recommend both Mamas restaurant and the Japanese Tepanyaki for which you turn left of the hotel and walk about 400 yds and 600yds respectively. Both on the right hand side.
I cannot understand the review given below for this hotel. My wife and I have just returned from a two week stay and cannot say enough about the facilities, staff and management. From the moment we checked in the staff were the most efficient and courteous we have found, not only in europe but easily as good as the far east and UAE.
The hotel itself has just been refurbished and although we booked a standard room we managed to upgrade to one of the penthouse suites for a reasonable price which were excellent.
The restaurants in the hotel provided a great choice of food albeit a bit pricey but even outside of the hotel you will find that the price for a meal for two has increased.
If you are looking to stay in this hotel i would highly recommend it! Also make sure you have a meal at Il Sapore italian restaurant located about 100yards from the hotel (Turn left when you come out). The food here is to die for, probably the best we ate in the two weeks.
Lap of Luxury
I probably don't even need to write a review for this lovely 5* hotel, but my husband and I had such a wonderful time on our honeymoon that I thought it deserved a mention. We went to stay in December 2003 for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect. Of course it's pricey but you get what you pay for. Lovely pools, inside and out. Wonderful location right on the coast of the Mediterranean. The service was great, and the quality of restaurants were superb. Buffet breakfasts with anything you could imagine, and buffet dinners with dessert tables that seemed endless. We have heard that they have now totally refurbished the hotel, which would only make it more perfect. If we ever have a fortune to spend, we would definitely go back!!
NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A FOUR SEASONS!!
This hotel is not all it seems by far!! the beginning of our holiday here was fantastic....and included many famous sites around the pool!! (ie) jeremy beadle and pauline quirk (from Birds and a Feather) the hotel was large and the beach was lovely.....however the location is awful!! the only time we ventured outside into limassol centre was by taxi....which was hit by a waiter working at the hotel!!!!!....on the last day a child decided to use the pool as a toilet...and the hotel staff fished out the droppings with a net....not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel!! but it was the only entertainment you find from this hotel, we found our selves very bored at night times, we had to find a local karoke bar across the road from the hotel!!! Also i didnt find the idea of fish ponds surronding the grounds of the hotel that great either, as soon as went outside to the pool area or to eat dinner the strong smell of fish was what welcomed you. This was simply unbearable. The hotel was too cold inside, and stepping in from 40 degrees weather made my son catch a chill. There are nice hotels in limassol, this one however is not included!!
Althought this was my second trip to Cyprus, it was my first stay in a Four Seasons Hotel, and the stay was great. It surely does feel like the Four Seasons service: rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated, the staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a King sized bed, which was awesome. I could not count the pools in this Hotel as there are so many! and the beach is so close and clean where it's not too difficult to get a place to sunbathe. there is also a diving school and a kiosk where u can rent equipment for lots of sports activities. The breakfast buffet was always full of variety although the lunch buffet was not spectacular, so we used to snack for lunch and had seafood dinner at least 3 times in the old town, excellent! we did not use the items in the minibar in our room, we bought water bottles and snack from the stores nearby, less expensive! overall it was a great experience.
Great hotel in great area
We found this hotel very relaxing and well worth it's rating. Fantastic pool, huge and was was almost always empty. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Huge range of food in restaurants. Superb clean beach with bar. Very well equiped gym. And had no trouble booking a squash court located in the hotel.
Stayed in almost every town in Cyprus previously. Limassol is a great base to explore the rest of the island. not too many tourists, and has a traditional cypriot culture. Loads of shops and the Trodos mountains provide a great backdrop.
We always visit Cyprus at least once a year if not more. We have stayed at several five star hotels in both Paphos and Limassol however, we always return to the Four Seasons every year usually in September but we have also been in May. I can only say that it is addictive. We are always made to feel very welcome. The staff are so professional and yet so friendly you always feel that nothing is too much trouble. It is right on the beach and in a nice area where there are just enough restaurants and shops. The bus service to the old town is good and taxis are reasonable. The restaurants in the hotel are also excellent. Although we also take other holidays our trip to the Four Seasons is the one we look forward to the most. We think it is very special.
Spent a weekend here in October 2004. Nothing much to add to the previous reviewer's comments (UK, 2 november), except to confirm that this hotel fully deserves its 5 star review rating.
The pool is exceptionally good, and I should add that it overlooks the hotel's beach.
Regarding location, the Four Seasons is situated on a main road which contains a lot of touristy pubs and restaurants. These can be a laugh, but I highly recommend making the effort to spend at least one eveing in the bars and restaurants of the Old Town. They are frequented more by Cypriots, especially those who descend on Limassol for the weekend from Nicosia, and this is where you'll eat great Mezze and experience the party-loving exhuberance of the Cypriot people. Seriously, these people will dance anywhere!
Most visited by me in Cyprus
We've visited Cyprus many times. We have chosen the Four Seasons 9 times in the past 6 years. So we kind of like it!
It's not, for the benefit of North American readers, part of the famous and fabulous Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts group. It is an independent hotel.
Great service, fabulous staff who always have a smile and are ready to help.
The food is very good, there are 3 restaurants all serving excellent food and a great choice - one is Oriental, one is a more casual type serving all kinds of international and local food from potato skins to calamari and the other is an upscale restaurant, which serves fabulous seafood on the outdoor terrace during the summer months.
The rooms were beginning to look a little dated - but not to worry - the hotel is closed from mid November 2004 to April 2005 in order to renovate all the rooms.
The hotel has a very large main pool, with lots of sun loungers, umbrellas etc. There are special areas for the kids.
There is another pool for over 18's only. It has its own bar service, and you dont need to leave your sun lounger - they serve great sandwiches and ice cream as well as drinks!
Very good but pricey spa, well worth the expense to chill after your treatment though.

All signature restaurants of the Four Seasons were fully booked by the time I arrived at the hotel that first day. I attempted to book at the neighboring Amathus but in vain. Both restaurants were full out there too. I have to admit I was kind of disappointed at first but how can …
Almost the end of September and it is still summer here in Cyprus and the hotel's beach and pools are full of guests who are here to extend their summer holidays just like myself.
The hotel is right to the sea and has its own beautiful strip of beach and the views from every part of the resort are fantastic. …
So, out first night in Cyprus, our kind host showed us our flat, then showed us the base where the bombers leave to go and bomb ISIS. We have a great view from our window :) , no I mean we really do, gorgeous coast and beach view from where we are.
