... than the purest honey (119:103) and your unfailing love is better than life (Ps 63:3). O God, how marvelous is your name in all the earth. If we would not praise you, all of creation would sing out. All the flowers of the field and all the trees of the forest would sing for joy and announce the glory of the King (Ps 96:12).

Yeah, that's right. :D It's time to swim in the Med some more...haha. The water was kind of cool, but once I got in it was great. Unfortunately, there are no real waves in Limassol. I should have swam at Paphos on the western coast where there were at ...

The whole session lasts 75 minutes and Stavro is the guy who is supervising me. At first sight I keep staring the first pool which I find kind of weird and wonder how it will be to get in that greenish smelly pool.
This smell however is the secret of the therapy. Stavros seems clear and his instructions are strict concerning this first pool. I am to relax on my back and he hands me a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mediterranean Beach Hotel Limassol
Wonderful wonderful hotel
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.
Our twin bedded room was everything we could wish for with a safe and mini bar (which we did not use but it was a nice feature), a balcony looking out on the several swimming pools and the beautiful blue Mediterranean sea at our feet. I read in a previous review that the towels in the hotel were lilke sandpaper, and advised my friend to pack a towel, which we didn't need as the towels in our bathroom were soft and fluffy. Breakfast in buffet style offered everything you could wish for - juices, fruit, salads, cold meats, cheeses, fries, eggs, brown bread, rolls - delicious and the charming and friendly staff came around to offer you tea or coffee at your table. Luxurious beauty treatments were available, fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi - everything to make your stay a memorable one. We preferred to eat out in the many cafes around the area and also in the cafes around the swimming pools which were very good and reasonably priced. We were particularly impressed by the efficiency and warmth and friendliness of the hotel staff, in particular Eleni who looked after our room number. 247 during our stay. Several people we spoke to in the hotel have been coming there for the past number of years, and there was a mix of young and older people enjoying the beautiful hotel and surroundings.
We loved our stay in the Mediterranean Hotel and look forward hopefully to going back there next year. The Cypriot people are charming and friendly and made us feel very welcome in their beautiful country.

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....
From then on everything was fine, the room nice and bright, airy, clean - english everything even the wall sockets! Breakfast was very fine, cereal if you want or lots of fruit... yellow melon is perfect when its hot! ..... and the italian theme the follwing night was much more my scene!
If travelling a little I would recommend renting a car as it's only around £8 per day, dont forget your driving license... and of course they drive on the left over there so it quite easy. We went to the "Akropolis Express taxis" office to book a taxi to Pafos. If you do this make sure you have a contact number should you need to call them. It cost us £7 to get to Pafos but £14 to get back (a bit of a con!) but when we asked a private taxi that stopped, his cheapest price was £30 each way! Realise also however that £1 uk is only about £0.75 cyprus £.......
Several good little Supermarkets across from the hotel if you need (who doesn't eh?!!), those cartons of peach juice are delish! Well that's about it really.. oh, be aware that most of the shops close on sundays
