Historical Traveller Reviews of GrandResort Hotel
Great Hotelfrom BKJDublin_Ireland
We found all staff in the hotel to be extremely helpful, polite and friendly; and were always available to deal with us when necessary while making preparations for our reception. The decor, and effort made on the room, for our reception was even better than we had expected.
I'd recommend the sea view upgrade as the view of the sea each morning was a view to kill for.
The hotel was spotless and our rooms cleaned daily.
Great wedding and many thanks to all the staff who helped make it a wonderful day.
Would highly recommend this hotel for people planning a hoilday or wedding in Cyprus.
Not worth it!from JAHGR
As I say, we did have a fantastic holiday but we would not return to the Hawaii Grand. It is definitely not a 5*, I don't think. It is clean though & you can always get a sun bed. I think the staff spoil it if I'm honest. They are the most miserable and unhelpful people I've ever come into contact with on holiday. I even commented to my new husband that they shouldn't be in a job like this if that is how they are. No-one really acknowledged our five year old. There were no smiles, no "congratulations on your wedding" or anything like that. If you are going please do not pay extra for a sea view room because it really is not worth it.
Not family orientated.from hayley_hobson
Upon arrival the hotel is very grand looking, the reception area, bars, restaurants and lounges are very impressive. The most impressive part of the hotel for us was the pool area, leading down onto the beach. The pool is stunning and because we have small children, the childrens pool was especially wonderful.
Our room was a standard room, and although it was quite small it was adequate for me, my partner and our 2 children.
The cleanliness of the hotel cannot be disputed.
The hotel however, is not at all family orientated, it is more of a professional hotel. The lifts are extremely dangerous, especially for
small children because they do not detect them. Our daughters hand was dragged in by the doors, and the management did not care at all, not even offering an apology.
There is no entertainment for hotel guests unless you eat in the restaurant, even then it was nothing to be boasted about!
The breakfast was really good, there was a lot of variety. I cannot comment on the other food offered in the many restaurants throughout the hotel as we found them quite overpriced, so found elsewhere to eat.
Staff: As you find anywhere you go there were a certain few staff members who were extremely helpful and pleasant but overall most members of staff were fairly ignorant and miserable.
Overall, we had a good holiday but would not go back to the Hawaii Grand beacause of the lack of facilities for children. The hotel in my mind would not be classed as five star, but on its way.
Fantastic Holiday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!from 27m24f
Can't comment on the food (apart from breakfast which was excellent, all tastes catered for), as we prefer to eat out. Strongly recommend the Terre Mare (opposite hotel), pay roughly £20-£25 each for a fantastic 4 course meal. Start with choice of 2 soups, then superb self-service salad, followed by choice of main and sweet. Dont worry you get the option of a rest in between courses, you will need it!
Opposite the hotel is the best pub/bar we have been to in Cyprus called Chesters. Great for a drink or 10, also good all day food menu. The hotel is situated 5-10 mins drive from Limassol but still plenty in the area. Molly Malones Irish bar another good venue up road. Embres restaurant next to Chesters was very good, and one round corner Santana was enjoyable (tried meat meze). An impressive looking Japanese restauant also next to Chesters (not our taste of food so cant comment) and in the future a chinese restaurant is being developed. We also got a taxi a couple of times up the road around the Four Seasons and Amathus Beach Hotels (about 5 mins) and found more geat little restaurants (good Italian opposite Amathus Beach). If you are looking for something more lively head to Limassol itself, depends what you want from your holiday.
Hawaii Grand distinctly average!from anniebSurrey
Most of the staff were friendly but the reception staff were clearly not going to forgive me for daring to complain.
The food at this hotel is distinctly average and over priced.
After my second day my travel agents booked me into the Le Meridien Hotel and what a difference, this hotel deserved its 5 star but the Hawaiie Grand is very average. I would not recommend this hotel.
It grows on you...from TheTravelingTaxman
The lobby, bar, restaurant and meeting facilities are all top notch. The room, at first, was somewhat dissappointing... it's OK and has everything you want, including good views of the sea, but it's missing that "wow!" factor you expect in a 5-star.
After a few days, the place does grow on you however, and I found myself sad to leave. The pool and surrounding area is especially nice. The beach is OK at best.... this is definitely not the Caribbean
Really a four star hotel posing as a five star, but still very nice.
You Get What You Pay For!from laurenSurrey
Horrible experiencefrom KoenBrussels
Disappointing stay at the Hawaii Grandfrom JFA16
Grand Time Indeed!from GeorginaWales
Food catered to everyone's needs and there are numerous restaurant's catering from snacks to a la carte, depending on your mood, although you may tend to find that the fantastic breakfast will set you up for the day ahead!
Having previously visited other 5 star hotels in the viscinity, which can be a little pretencious, I would thoroughly recommend the Hawaii to anyone who enjoys a touch of luxury without going overboard.
Possibly the most impressive part of the hotel - for us - was the staff who could not do enough for you, from the poolside assistants to the gym instructors right up to the managers, who were always on hand to ensure your stay was flawless. Not so much of a hotel, more of a home from home! A thoroughly enjoyable stay, which will no doubt be repeated in the near future.
Top Local Tips for Limassol
Santana Go to the Santana restaurant across the road to Hawaii Grand hotel. Small, family owned and is superb. Very friendly family too.
Get around! Make sure you hire a car. Everything in Cyprus is only 1 hour max drive from Limassol. It is the perfect base for travelling around the island.
Limassol Full of Russians and Polish, topless bars but also there are some great trendy bars.... Not great shopping, no market, very limited good 5 star restaurants, not really impressed. You don't go there for food or things to spend your money on!
