We have written about a number of different hotels already but wanted to sum up in one quick blog. We will be staying at the Merit Park next year but as can see below lots of choices –
Club Z – Please see our separate post on Club Z, one of Martyn and my favourite places for a cheap stay! Should be £40 a room, a night.
Pine Bay Club – Please see separate post, highly recommended by wedding planner and conveniently located. Should be £40 a room, a night.
The British – Try to avoid due to bad reputation.
Ship Inn – Comes recommended again by wedding planner, very English hotel with a pool and not far out of town.
Fairmont Villas – Brand new villas that look really nice, only finished this year. Have a pool and include breakfast in rate. Only about 20 rooms and so have a really nice small complex feel. Should be between £50-60 a night. Would say a car is needed as not walking distance to shops/restaurants but have mini kitchens.
Oscar Resort – If you shut your eyes driving down to Oscar and then only open them once in the hotel, it is a really good place to stay. It is walking distance to town but you have to walk through the worse part of town to get there and this is what lets it down. However setup for families and got brilliant facilities, including a number of pools. Range of board options but usually about £60 half board
Korenium Resort and Spa – Please see blog post, this is a lovely resort set in amazing surroundings on the golf course. It should be really in the next bracket as is a 5 star hotel however it is very reasonable as is so far out of town. It is a 30 minute drive and so once get there have to use the resort restaurants/bars or be prepared to drive. We have eaten there before and food is really good. Should be £60 a night bed and breakfast
Bellapais Monastery Village – Slight negative biased about this hotel as they mucked up our booking and so never got to stay there. However gets very well rated and is situated in Bellapais village, which is beautiful. Should be £60-70 a night bed and breakfast.
5 Star Hotels
Merit Park – Please see separate blog post. This is the chosen one :-). £123 a night per room all inclusive.
Malpas Hotel – Please see blog post. Lovely hotel and Martyn’s family will be staying there. Usually £90 a room a night for half board.
Pia Bella – The Pia Bella is in a good location just outside of town but within walking distance. Lovely pool area and really good facilities. Usually very reasonable about £80 a night per room half board.
The Colony – Love the Colony, as the name suggests based on a large colonial house and situated in middle of town. Has a rooftop pool and owns The House restaurant (see blog post.). Usually £90 a night per room, bed and breakfast.
Cratos Premium – This is an over the top hotel based just by The Malpas and about 10 min from town. We loved staying here, the rooms were brilliant, the buffet huge, the beach club is cool and it
has one of the biggest pools ever seen. However reviews say service is poor and it is only really geared up for the Casino guests. We never experienced this but could be as the hotel was only half full when stayed there. It does however have a hotel Bentley – what more could you need??? £130-£140 a night per room, full board plus.
The Rocks – Our Honeymoon hotel! Based in the middle of town, this hotel is known for excellent service and good location. Nice pool area and good cocktail bar. Worth a visit even if only for a drink – although it is London prices! £114 a night bed and breakfast per room.
