Lunch at the Cafe Tropical
By the time I come to the restaurant for lunch I pleasantly notice that most of the people have already finished and left. I hate crowds and the hotel is full these days. I can hardly see 25 people in this huge room.
I don't eat complicated dishes and I love light meals. The variety …
Lefkara, - A living museum!
Lefkara is one of the villages I love. It is charming and quiet. I can easily call it –a living museum! Of course I have written about Lefkara on entries of a previous visit but I will just add a few lines in case somebody reads this and wants to know a few things about this beautiful and rare …
My staying in Larnaca all these days caused many alteration in my programme. I have already lost two important meetings but there was no way to cancel any others. The time left before flying back to Athens is so little, - just 4 days! I only realize it while on my way to Limassol this morning and after I checked my notebook. I will be running …
Charalambos is a friend who spotted me through the net. We have never met before but when he read my entries about Lefkara he got in touch with me and told me that there is still much to see out there. He offered to show me around, invited me to join him and his friend for dinner at his beautiful house, and he wants me to see his huge collection of …
After a great night's sleep and a Jacuzzi that lasts for more than an hour I am ready for breakfast. I am already delayed and by the time I open the door I find a vase with some beautiful pink roses accompanied by a card. What a nice gesture and treat to start a beautiful day!
Breakfast is a feast here just as I expected it …

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Limassol
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
