TravelPod Member ReviewsSan Remo Hotel Larnaca
We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this was not one of the better, but the price is good.
Friendly reception staff at check in and helped with taxi booking. Room a decent size and clean. Breakfast fine. Location is ok, but not great, you can walk to the salt lake, Makenzie beach and town, but none are exactly close, so can feel like a bit of a task just to go for dinner. The buses in the area are not the best either.
Wifi is not free anywhere in this hotel which is inexcusable in this day and age. We often stay in hostels and they provide it! Internet and PCs are available but very expensive (every restaurant in town offers it free!)
Breakfast finishes at 9.30 am which doesn´t help you feel on holiday and was earlier by a whole hour compared to the other hotels we stayed in Cyprus.
The taxi reserved by hotel to take us to bus station was over 15 minutes late, so we nearly missed our bus. Not the hotels fault but something to bear in mind.
Larnaca is a reasonable place, and this hotel does for a couple of nights near the airport, but I would not want to spend a week´s holiday at this hotel nor in Larnaca for that matter! (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

The ruins are spectacular. First the history of the history:

... Mehmet, the guards, was very knowledgeable and gave a small tour and we chatted a bit. Very nice gentleman. The road up and down is very treacherous and a moment of distraction could easily mean trouble from steep mountain sides. Okay, so be careful!!
Oh, one more thing: I saw an almond tree fresh with flowers fully bloomed. The island is in the midst of flowers blooming. Exquisite site.
... Sunday, the town was pretty quiet; many shops and sights were closed.
We departed at 1:43 and drove 17 minutes back to the E-Hotel, where we chowed down on the lunch buffet. Our booking included all three meals per day. Went outside after lunch to relax by the pool in the glorious 75º sunshine.
Up to the room for a bit, then left E-Hotel at 3:35 and drive back into town. We passed several strange signs warning us of "Pelican ...
