Palm Beach Hotel In Cyprus

by : Derek Both

My partner and I have always been big fans of Cyprus holidays and try to stay somewhere different every year to make it a bit more interesting. However, a recent stay at the Palm Beach Hotel was so enjoyable that we will definitely be going back there next year.

There were so many facilities at the hotel that we didn't know where to start. There was an outdoor swimming pool, a children's swimming pool and even an indoor pool for when it gets a bit chilly. There was a casino, Turkish baths, tennis courts, gym, water - sports, massage room, sauna, solarium, Jacuzzi, steam bath, beauty facilities, children's playground, squash court and table tennis.

We were surprised at the wide range of restaurants and bars available at the hotel or on the street across from it. Even though there were bars and restaurants just opposite some of the rooms, surprisingly enough you couldn't hear anything once you were inside your room. There was a massive selection from Italian, Chinese, Indian and French restaurants so there was definitely something for everyone. Even breakfast was an extravagant affair with a huge selection of items to choose from with either a continental or full cooked breakfast.

To make it even better the hotel is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, anyone going on Cyprus holidays who love the beach will definitely be happy here. There was also a beach hut which served light snacks and drinks which kept us going while sunbathing.

Even if you didn't want to stay at the hotel there was plenty to keep you busy. Located about a mile from Famagusta and 10 to 15 minutes from Larnaca, a taxi ride was cheap and easy to find. There was plenty of car park space so this was not a problem if you like to rent a car on your Cyprus holidays.

The rooms were very clean as there was a maid service every day. There were also safes, mini bars, hair - dryers, satellite/cable TVs, radios, in - room movies, air conditioning and telephones available in all of the rooms.

The hotel was very pleasant which meant that we had one of the best Cyprus holidays we've had since we started going there. It was in a very good location close to Larnaca Airport and the city centre and had stunning views of the beach it over - looked. The whole hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and only too happy to help. The area itself was fairly quiet but there were a few good restaurants located nearby as well as fast food bars. The shops were only small supermarkets but you can get a bus to Larnaca if you needed to.

A lot of people asked to upgrade their rooms to one with a sea view and not even this was a problem and was done quickly and without any problems. Like I said earlier, this was definitely one of our best Cyprus holidays and will be returning to this wonderful hotel.
