it was terrible, it is built for the French, the foods the same every day the entertainment was rubbish and the waiters never bring you a full order, there were French having sex in the pool twice and went unpunished, the day time poolside entertainment is the only good thing about it. If you're going Paphos stay at the king's hotel, if you are going to this one it's going to be hell for you

The whole hotel is very clean and tidy. For all inclusive the food was varied and good quality. Two pool areas one quite and relaxed the lower pool more lively with bar, restaurant and outdoor games area. The staff are very friendly and helpful (nothing is a problem) only slight criticism is of the evening entertainment!!! But Pofos is only a short bus ride away. Excellent place to stay for young and old.

Just had to reply to Jim & Justine, what the devil are they on about? The reason Jim was ill after drinking was probably he made a pig of himself as the drink was free, the management could not be nicer to their staff and its not run like any gestapo. Justine what about the roulette table, bingo (which is fun and kids can join in) we were up until 2pm playing roulette with a very nice young couple and drinking cocktails which the management gave us free.

The hotel is very clean, staff very friendly, food brilliant and entertainment excellent. This was our 3rd year here and coming back again this year, (2006). Its also very good for the disabled.The towels were made into lovely swans on freshly made beds.The maids left sweets every morning, a great idea. Pool cleaned every day. Everywhere spotless.

Expensive for what you get, the food is BORING, the free local drinks(all inc) are gash and make you ill the next day unlike quality stuff, I get the feeling the management run the place like the gestapo and if the staff (russians and poles) make 1 mistake its death. Saying all that though i wish i was still there.... ps it does get quiet boring too!

My wife and I stayed at the Laura last year as we went over to Cyprus for a friends weading. I was impressed as I usually only go long haul all inclusive. My wife has now just finished her cancer traetment and as respite I sent her again this year because I know the quality of the hotel is good and she will be looked after.

As I went to cyprus in August I loved it. I went 4 my friends wedding, I suggest u take total block sun cream as I was using soltan and a was burnt in less than 3 hours and if u have young children be sure to bring water shoes, and when they go in the pool wear a T-Shirt as well as a costume/trunks. There are some really friendly people there. U will love it

Really impressive

Overall, the hotel Laura was really impressive, and the standard of cleanliness was hard to rival. It is well worth booking half board to enjoy the breakfast but especially the evening meals which are varied and cooked to a high standard. General standard of presentation of the whole place is high with attention to detail throughout. The pool is nice but not heated as we found out once submerged ! The private beach is okay but the currents are strong so be careful and there are much safer and sandier beaches elsewhere, but eh view out to sea is gorgeious especially at sunset. Staff are polite and the duty managers speak several languages. The waiters in the restaurant will be waiting to take your plates away as soon as you lay down your knife and fork but you will get used to this after a day or so!
Definately worth saying at Laura Hotel and I would give it a rating of 5 stars for sure. By the way I am a woman in her early 30's and we are hard to impress at our age but I would return without question with my family.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Cyprotel Laura Beach Hotel

excellent all inclusive

A fantastic value hotel for anybody looking for a relaxing all inclusive holiday..food was superb,beer and soft drinks couldnt be better.
Rooms were clean and tidy with good views from balcony.
The hotel staff are friendly and very hepfull.
I was part of a group of 41 people in our party and had no complaints from anybody...kids loved it and want to return next year!

LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
What can I say except WOW! My family group compromised of my grandparents (late 70s) my parents (mid 40s) my brother (15) and myself (19) and I must admit that I seriously doubted any hotel would cater for us all, but the Luc Laura gave us all the holiday of a lifetime! The animation staff were incredible, they made a point of learning our names (as we enjoyed taking part in the activities going on during the day) and it was lovely when they came and called us by name for an activity, it really gave the holiday a personal feel. Alex was particularly great, he even managed to have my grandparents playing in the darts contests, and Naomi was so friendly we all signed up for whatever she was organising!! Okay, some of the activities weren’t as good as others, but as they had two going every hour of the day, you could always do something you wanted at any time! The pool was enormous, though during peak hours filled with inflatable’s which were supposed to be banned. A major bonus was the massive amounts of sun beds, I think there was enough for two each should you feel so inclined!! The food was also delicious with massive variety, not as much fresh fish as I expected, but there was so much else it was hard to miss it. The beach isn’t far away but it is on a bit of a slope (but if my granddad can manage it can’t be that bad!). Only criticism, on all inclusive I expected there to be some sort of water sport on the beach available free of charge, but they were all very expensive. There was a bar at the beach as well, so if you wanted a drink you didn’t have to walk up to the hotel. All in all a marvellous time was had by all and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Oh, and though we didn’t use it the kids club looked great, they always seemed to be having fun!

Ok but could be better

from LincolnshireDawn
We have just returned from our Holiday to the Luca Laura. I had some reservations staying here due to the mixed reviews.

When we arrived we were dealt with promptly but when we got to our rooms we were very disappointed. The rooms were small, very dated and in need of repair. There was plaster falling off the walls, mould in the bathroom, broken bed and filthy mattress. The other family travelling with us also had this problem. The room was only just big enough for a couple let alone with children as well. We went straight back to reception to complain. The staff were very polite and asked us to return the following day. The next day both families were both given better and larger rooms at no extra cost. There were 8 families complaining at the same time as us with regards to the same matter. What was a bad start was sorted very quickly. If you are travelling with children make sure you book a family room and not a standard room.

The food was plentiful and a good choice was offered. There are 2 sittings. The early one for families but again as a couple if you wish to eat earlier you just tell them at reception. The snacks are the same every day. Toasted sandwiches and pizza and chips. Crisps and milkshakes are not included in the all inclusive package. Free bar closes at midnight and then you have to pay for drinks.

Entertainment was a bit hit and miss but it all depends of what you like. Plenty for younger children but not alot for teenagers especially at night.

Pool ok but not that big. Always clean though. Beach is down some very dodgy stone steps so not good for those with mobility problems. Not a very large beach either and when the tide is in no sand at all. Take a bus ride and go to the beach at Coral Bay.

If you want a quiet holiday this Hotel is not for you especially during school holidays. Lots of children were running amock in the Hotel and it took several people to complain before anything was done. A member of Staff usually keeping an eye but sometimes they just stood around and ignored them and let them get on with it.

The main town of Pathos is about 5 km away and not 2 as stated in some of the holiday brochures. The buses run every 15-20 minutes to Pathos and Coral Bay. Costs 70 cents for adults and 40 cents for children. Be careful though they do get very crowded and sometimes dangerous. An inspector got onto a bus we were on and there were 86 people on it. Are only insured to carry 56. There is always another one that comes along so sometimes it is best to wait. A taxi to Coral Bay and Pathos costs £5.00 each way.

Great excursions to go on are Georges Fun Bus and the waterpark. Great days out for all ages. George is the Ali G of cyprus.

There are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance of the Hotel but everything else is a bus or taxi ride.

Hotel exchange rate is very poor. 74 to the pound. All the shops that change money were about 80-81 and the banks 83.

On a final note I dont think the Hotel warrants 4 stars. We have been to lots of Hotels that have been 4 or 5 but I think this should be a 3. The other all inclusive hotels that we have visited have offered alot more. There is so much to see and do in and around Pathos and you can find some good quality restaurants and bars at good prices that we will definetly not do all inclusive again but this is our preference and others see it in a different light to us. The Hotel is ok but could be alot better for a 4 star considering the amount that we paid.

Great - recommend others to go!!!

I stayed at the Luca Laura Beach Hotel for 2 weeks in July/Aug and it was brilliant! The hotel was lovely, staff were friendly, we were lucky enough to get a sea view even though we weren't supposed to have it. It was gorgeous!! The private beach was a bonus, so if you got bored of being by the pool you could just have a walk down to the beach which was handy. The only thing i could complain about (which isn't a proper complaint) is the location. There wasn't much going on where we were but it was still nice. Also the food had a good choice but i wasn't sure about some of it (probably because i'm a fussy eater and lived on pizza and chips!) All in all it has to be one of the best hols i've been on and i'd highly recommend anyone else to go!!!

Very Good Quality Family Hotel

from Retired Former Globetrotter
Just returned (August 13th) after a two week stay and can endorse the good comments which have been recorded earlier. I simply cannot understand the grumbles which have taken place.
There is a good variation of food on offer at the main meal and also for snacks during the day. All the staff were very friendly to us ( I suppose it depends upon how you treat them).
Just one annoying point. I do wish the hotel would activate their threat to remove towels, lilo's and other objects on unoccupied "reserved" pool loungers before 10-00am. I must add that this was not the German's doing this but predominantly the British.

lovely

from A TripAdvisor Member
we have just come back, had a great time.
staff were lovely and very acommodating, the hotel was very nice and clean. there were lots of activities all day for all ages.
the food was lovely, alot was typically greek, which we all loved. also there were english food ,if you wanted that sort of thing. the only thing that bugged me was english people complaining about it,saying they expect to eat what they have in england. ....we are in cyprus!!!!!!!. all i can say about that is that they should have gone to butlins.
some parts of the hotel could do with abit of a face lift, but it was always well presented.
we made lots of friends and enjoyed the whole holiday, just a shame we had to come home.
we would go back again

A Perfect Holiday!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have just found this review site for the Laura Beach Hotel, and cannot believe some of the adverse comments. We spent three weeks at the Laura Beach hotel in March 2005. From the moment we walked into the hotel we were treated with total courtesy and friendliness by reception, restaurant and domestic staff alike.

The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout. Our room had recently been refurbished to a high standard, and was very comfortable (and we, like other guests before us, also enjoyed the ‘swans’ provided by the domestic staff). A close by wing was also being refurbished at the time of our stay, but the management and workmen ensured that there was minimal disruption or nuisance to guests. A small error on an interim bill was quickly and politely rectified, followed up with a complimentary gift of a fruit basket and bottle of wine by way of apology.

We enjoyed the ample variety and presentation of foods in the restaurant, especially the selection of Cypriot foods, which, I might add, we didn’t get in the Paphos hotel we stayed in the previous year! Over the three weeks the food was a bit repetitive, but there was sufficient variety to allow us to be selective without getting bored with it! There are a few restaurants and tavernas in the immediate area but we didn’t feel the need to use these other than for the occasional drink or coffee during the day. During our stay we encountered a Cypriot bank holiday – and yes, the Cypriots flock to the seaside at bank holidays just like the Brits! Everyone in the hotel was in high spirits and extremely polite and friendly - and we certainly did not experience any change in attitude to us by hotel staff.

The hotel has a great location mid way between Paphos and Coral Bay, with a regular day time bus service right outside the hotel. Unfortunately this does not run at night time, so we had to use the services of a taxi on the few occasions we ventured into town during the evening. Otherwise, we enjoyed the in-house entertainment, quizzes and even tried our luck at bingo.

The one small criticism we have of the hotel is that the grounds appeared to be a little neglected – the flower beds needed a good hoe and weeding, and the grass could have been cut more regularly - the gardeners had actually started working on tidying the palm trees but garden waste was being bagged and dumped very close to the garden boundaries. However, this has not deterred us from booking again for three weeks in March 2006, and we can’t wait!

Nice hotel. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.

from borisbrain
Have just returned from the Laura Beach Hotel, which was really quite nice. There's a really impressive lobby area which gives it a nice spacious feeling and captures the sun nicely. The staff are hard working and quite friendly, and Mike the night concierge is a very friendly chap.

The rooms aren't particularly enormous but are quite comfortable. We upgraded to a sea view for £8 cyp. per day which made for a very pleasant view, but it does expose you to the din of the poolside entertainment each evening. It's fine if you like that sort of thing, but wasn't our cup of tea. Bathrooms in all rooms are tiny, but adequate.

The buffet restaurant is OK - good food but not a vast choice, certainly not up there with the Caribbean resorts. They lay on a special selection for kids which was quite nice. We stayed all-inclusive but by the end of the week we were going to Paphos harbour each evening which was much more lively.

There are extensive grounds to the hotel - a large garden before the path down to the beach - and this can be quite a trek. There's a small sandy beach at the hotel which is quite nice and sunny, although as soon as you get into the water this turns into pebbles and then just downright painful rocks before hitting the sandy bottom again. The sea currents are very strong, so you won't be able to swim very far. Be careful getting in and out - I'd recommend some beach shoes to avoid hurting your feet.

There's a lot to do at the hotel - a jacuzzi, gym, health club, massage, tennis and so forth. There's also an animation program at the hotel, so be prepared for somebody to try to drag you into some kind of activity. The pool isn't that big and is usually swarming with kids, and you'll need to be up early to get a lounger by the pool. There are other loungers in the gardens, and also in an area by the beach, which also had a handy bar.

Speaking of bars, the main hotel bar was ok, with disco if you like that sort of thing.

The hotel is well served by buses - for 70p you can get to Paphos harbour or the other way to Coral Beach. It's really worth getting out the hotel since there is so much to see. We did a jeep safari into the Troodos mountains which was really quite something - don't bother with the minibus version because they can't get onto the off-road tracks where all the good stuff is. You can also take boat trips from Paphos harbour, but don't go on a day when the sea is choppy. Despite its size, the boats travel very slowly indeed, and several paople were struck with sea-sickness.

All in all it was a great trip. The hotel isn't the best I've ever been in, but it's certainly not the worst. I'd be happy to stay there again, but I wouldn't go all-inclusive - there's too much to see and do elsewhere.

Have fun.

nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
enjoyed a lovely weeks holiday at this hotel in june, hotel is a family hotel but as a couple of friends we really enjoyed it. Staff excellent, food good, good choice of buffet style food morning and night. WE stayed half board but would recommend you choose all inclusive as drinks are expensive in the hotel. A number of bars are close by and offer excellent entertainment and drinks are cheaper. Try El Paso bar next door or two brothers over the road for cyprus evening on a friday night. Rooms very clean and maid service very discreet. Only critisism would be entertainment on a night, its aimed at the children or germans who seem happy to play bingo or who wants to be a millionare. The bar after 10pm does offer some musical entertainment for the adults whixh we enjoyed. It is hot in cyprus but the air con in the rooms and local buses is a boon. We visited paphos harbour and town which is picturesque. On the whole would go back, all the hotels along the coast seem a decent standard

Absolutely fab!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I really am confused at why people can say this hotel is terrible, it is fab. The maids are pleasant. The food is great a wide range for adults and children. The animation team oh what can I say they were excellent it is very hard to describe the hotel but it really is brill!!!

I would reccommend it to anyone. They checked us in quick and we were in a party of 9. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The scenery was awesome!!!!!! We went on loads of excursions to different towns and to the mountains they were amazing and we learnt alot the pictures taken excursion were fab.I would highly reccomend you went on a cruise to Eygpt. That is a true memory My duaghter was sea sick but even she said it was worth it --->we saw the pyramids!!!

Also the bus takes you anywhere for just 50c. Coral bay is good it is 10 minutes away.Request a sea view room they gave us one without an extra charge.There are two stores within a 2minute walk, its safe to walk on the streets during the night. The store in the hotel is slighty deerer then the puplic store. You should visit the sea during the night after the show.

Go!! thats all I can say!

Top Local Tips for Paphos

Shopping Paphos has access to many shops you would find in England including Debenhams,etc

The Bus Service! The bus service outside the hotel is great. The Number 10 & 15 runs to Pahos Harbour and Coral Bay and only costs 80 cents each! This was a life saver in getting out and about and seeing the sights.

Drivers As our rep said when we arrived, traffic light signals have diff meanings: Green=Go, Amber=Go, Red=Go slower. Drivers here are scary so be careful.
