Mediterranean Beach Hotel
Travel Blogs from Limassol
Hi guys, So I've finally arrived safe and sound in Cyprus. Luggage here too, but I did have to bring two bags...! Left Bristol just before 3am, freezing cold wrapped up well. Got to heathrow and checked in fine all bar a little technical trouble with the self check-in machine... I've never like technology! After about half hours delay while sitting …

We arrived about 1:00am to the Mediterranean Beach Hotel which is a beautiful resort hotel on the coast. Susan ans I wished we could have slept in, but we couldn't sleep. I got up and went to breakfast early and Tom Santos, Regional English Language Officer from Moscow, was right behind me. I was so happy to see him and he …
... those peaches looked SO damn good, ripe and heavy with sweet nectar, so plump that they were weighing down the branches and ready to drop with the slightest breeze. In fact, there were already dozens of peaches that had fallen to the ground and slowly started to rot, because they were so ripe. How could a guy resist? There was nothing that could've been done in the end, as I had already eaten the peach before we even noticed ...
... copious games of bat tennis on the beach, watching the Champions League game in Nicosia and probably most all enjoying many excessive eating sessions with Stis’s friends and family – none more special than the final night when Mimi and Solumi celebrated their anniversary and invited us along and none more amusing(/painful) than the first night when I ate so much I passed out in the car then slept 13hrs that night!
Hidden in the Troodos hills are monasteries and churches that are small yet charming. Discovering them is not like finding diamonds, but rather like seeing unique mushrooms or orchids in the forest. They are closer to the heart of the average person than gems and therefore you cherish them more. You grant yourself time to soak the images and soften their feel until they enter your mind as in osmosis. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mediterranean Beach Hotel Limassol
My first visit to Cyprus was in September 2005 when with a friend I was invited to attend a wedding in Limassol. Our friends, whose son's wedding we were invited to, overwhelmed us with the extent of their hospitality during our stay in their beautiful country and invited us and all their Irish visitors to their beautiful home in Limassol and Summer retreat in the mountains above Paphos. Andreas, the handsome groom and Maria the beautiful bride were married in a beautiful Greek Orthodox church. The service was deeply moving and a very spiritual experience.. Weather was beautiful, cloudless blue skies every day and balmy evenings. We were booked into a four star hotel, the Mediterranean Beach Hotel. The foyer/reception area was very impressive, marble floors, elegant surroundings and friendly reception staff.
Stayed here for a week at end of August. Upgraded to a sea view room and is definitely worth it, the other alternative is a road side room. Pool is lovely, beach nice and clean.
Only down side was hotel staff were not very attentive or friendly, you get a distinct feeling that they dont want to be there. They are not cypriot, they seem to be all eastern european. the Cypriot people that we met we all friendly - a taxi driver taking us to the airport gave us a small melon to bring back home with us!!
The hotel is generally good value for money. Doesnt have many options for lunch. We ate out every night, the in house entertainment seemed dire. The sea promenade is also lovely and worth doing at sunset.
I stayed there in August 2005 for 15 days with my family.
Was a nice hotel with very helpful staff.Very clean hotel with good rooms.
Disadvadages: 1)Breakfast could be better 2)Beach tavern ought be dressed to eat a salad or have a light lunch!
This hotel is fab! We stayed in a standard sea view room, and what a view. Limassol is a bit naff, so the location of this hotel outside of the town is ideal. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance.
The hotel has a lovely beach, great pool and really friendly staff. I would only recommend staying bed and breakfast as the dining menu is a little repetitive, and the evening entertainment is awful. On the whole, a great place to stay.
We love it here
Can't wait to stay here again. This hotel is nearly at the top of our favourites list for hotels in Cyprus. We have been holidaying in Cyprus for many years now and although it may not be a prestigious 5* hotel it is clean comfortable and the staff are extremely helpful and charming. It is very good value for money and meets all our needs. We enjoy its position just a few miles from the town of Limassol and hope we will be able to continue to stay there for many more years to come.
Great value for money
Loved it. Dont get a moutain view though, its actually a road view. Yes towels are like sandpaper but take your own and it wont bug you. No tea making facilities but again, go prepared and enjoy the rest of the hotel. ROoms clean, airy, neutral, staff excellent, sea views superb, breakfast excellent. We went first week in Jan so lots of surrounding shops restaurants were closed but as long as you have a car this is a good base for exploring the island.
What a good service!!!
spending one week in this hotel, i can tell you that the quality of services is high above expectations!!! i can highly recommend that hotel !!!!!!!!!!!
Needs a make over
we have been 3 times now hotel clean staff great more times you go the more time they have for you it does need a make over its geting a bit rough on the edges
This hotel is great
I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and will be returning there in September, so impressed are we that we have already booked for September 2005.
The hotel is well located for a number of bars, restaurants and entertainment. The staff in the hotel are excellent and everything is maintained to a very high standard.
The bar prices are quite expensive which does let it down a little when compared to the bars close to the hotel but well worth having a couple of nights in the hotel restaurant and lounge bar.
The hotel doesn't really offer much for children which suits us, this is a hotel for grown ups so if you are travelling with little ones you will probably be dissapointed with the facilities for them.
I am counting the days to my return to the 'med beach'
We've just come home to sunny Scotland (!) after spending some time at "Mediterranean Beach Hotel", and would rate the place overall as pretty good. Started off a little badly because the taxi/flight meant we arrived a little early and had to wait around an hour and a half surrounded by bags for the room to be ready (an offer of a little coffee or orange would've cheered us up!). We then went away for a swim and returned in time for food, but got sent back to our rooms as there is a fairly strict dress code at the restaurant. The food had a Mexican theme, which isn't really my taste....
