My husband and I holiday three times a year and always stay in 5* hotels we have been to grecian Park in Protaris and coral beach in Paphos, we also stayed at Golden Bay in Larnanca 3 years ago and thought it was ok then. This visit was awful, the reception staff are rude and struggle to smile, few speak English and if they do it is very poor, our room, the decor was dated, our bathroom was crawling with insects, the hairdryer is so old I would be there all day trying to dry my hair, there are no tea/coffee making facilaties and no iron in the room, if you want to iron anything, you have to go to a dis used toilet to use an iron, breakfast is full of junk food and the only fruit is out of a tin in syrup, no one has the courtessy to show you to a table its just find your own and find a member of staff to get you a pot of coffee, none of them speak English or know how to smile and they often snatch your plate/cutlery away as soon as you put your fork down so if you want more food you have to use your fingers or take cutlery from another table. the pool are is ok but there are no plants the grass hasnt been cut and the beach is dirty, the sunbeds and tables are dirty and dont dare ask for more than one towels as you will be told NO! you have to make do with one which only covers half of the sun bed. Our room was clean but the balcony was covered on bird mess and the glass screen was never cleaned or the plastic table covered in dirt. We were not treated like paying guests and most of the staff are not locals but exploited immigrants - no wonder they didnt smile. All the balconys were crunbling away and this hotel should be condemmed immediately there are no life guards and on our day of departure we found a young boy who had strayed from the pool area across the car park and heading for the main road where cars do speeds in excess of 80mph. Some one needs to do something about this hotel fast!!

I'm really disappointed that others have had bad experiences here as we found this hotel to be very acceptable. We stayed just for 2 nights but found the facilites more than acceptable, food very good and our room was comfortable and clean. I admit is is by no means the five star place it claims to be and the reception staff were a bit "deetsy" when we first arrived, but overall I enjoyed the brief stay.

I have been going to Larnaca for the past 15 years and have stayed in numerous hotels, but we have never stayed at the Golden Bay as we thought due to it being a 5* Hotel it would be out of our price range. This year we decided to give ourselves a treat and the pay the extra for staying in the Golden Bay. Once we reached the hotel the reception staff seemed helpful and had no problems there. As i had a quick look around while checking in, the hotel looked almost bland and had no character, their centrepiece was a bright orange sofa in the strangest shape I have ever seen!!! Eventually we got to our room, the air conditioning was leaking in the bathroom so we asked to be moved....they moved us to another room, once in me and my partner could not understand what made this room part of a 5* hotel it was small, dated decor, very old facilities, the ugliest bathroom suite and to top that all off the had given us 2 single beds rather than the double that was requested!!! I rushed downstairs to ask why there was 2 single beds rather than a double, the receptionist had no real reply and simply said I don't know why and so we took it as it was. While in the room we decided to order room service, as we were both very hungry. We ordered 2 cheeseburgers with chips, the food came to the room after 20 minutes as we sat down to eat, being a 5* we would have expected freshly cooked food, the burger was cooked from frozen and was still uncooked in the middle and the chips were still frozen! We were both very disappointed but thought not to complain as we were both exhausted and thought tomorrow would be a better day. The following day we went down for breakfast, again I was expecting quality food but was disappointed as it looked liked dog food and it was like this everyday. The staff would argue amongst themselves and have no respect for the guests. The room cleaners would not clean the room until 2pm and found it amusing to shout down the corridor to each other at 9am.!!!!!! The pool was dirty and the sun beds looked like tired old mats that i dreaded to lie on, the beach towels were covered in bleach and some had big holes in them.. The food at lunch was a mixture of breakfast left overs that was stuffed into the club sandwich and everything else that was on the menu also looked liked breakfast. Overall a very disappointing experience, this hotel is not fit to hold 5* and I ask for it to be revoked and dropped to a 3* which is still too high. Never again. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL!!!! AND IF YOU DO DONT EAT THE FOOD!!

This is my sixth visit to Cyprus (I travel a lot, so I tried many hotels in many countries). I was very happy with Grecian Bay in Agia Napa, quite happy in Pafos Coral Beach, but this time I stay in Larnaca, Golden Bay 5* hotel.
That was the wrong move... On checkin they requested my credit card and told that they will block a "security deposit". Just in case. If I escape without
paying my bills. I tried to argue (I fully prepaid my stay, there was no information on security deposit). Ok, I agreed to pay the deposit (they asked for CYP100 (US$220)). Later I found that they blocked twice more!!
They blocked $450 on my credit card! This is a plain fraud! I WILL NEVER stay in this hotel, NEVER! Furthemore, airconditioning is really poor, it is too hot in the room. I contacted reception but they failed to do anything
about it (they simply save electricity). The beach is also much worse than in Agia Napa. Even worse, Golden Bay is about 10 kilometers from Larnaca, so if you are looking for any night life you have to hire taxi... Try Grecian
Bay - much better value for the same money!!!

Top Local Tips for Larnaca

NONE There are NO attractions to Larnaca. If you want to go lay on a beach and do nothing then fine - but there are a million other places in the world to do that.

Viking Scuba Diving We went diving with 'Viking' it was fab. There not much sealife, but they made each dive trip fun and a 'special event'.

Resturants Try the sea front near the Town centre , Monte Carlo superb value Meze , or Zephros and Varoshotis for seafood,
