Superb Location!

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe Hotel Larnaca is nothing less than fabulous. It is very close to Larnaca Airport and is located in the heart of McKenzie beach. It is the finest small luxury hotel in Larnaca that combines the charm of a private house with the comfort of a 5* establishment. This is one of the reasons I keep coming back as it makes me feel like home. Check-in was extremely smooth and one thing that stood out for me during my stay was just how warm and welcoming all the staff were throughout. Always smiling and making you feel like a VIP it’s so nice to see that all the basics that are essential for a pleasant stay anywhere have been mastered here.

The Suite

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe HotelContinuing the trend of elegancy and great atmosphere within the hotel, the corner sea view suite #132 that I had, definitely ticked that box with everything you could wish for –from large comfortable bed, flat screen HD TV, a safe, luxury amenities, quality furnishings, fast and consistent free Wi Fi connection and much more.

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe HotelThe king size bed was extremely comfortable with large pillows, and even though there were times I could hear a plane go by, yet never once was I disturbed in the evening. Room’s light was really good, with floor lamps and reading-lights on both sides of the bed. The air conditioning was also silent and effective, it would be a challenge not to get a good night’s sleep. The complimentary treat, two small bottles of House wine accompanied with two mouthwatering chocolate cupcakes. Complimentary water is provided daily.

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe HotelRooms with view or not, smaller or more spacious are all trendy and elegant with quality furnishings. The suite enjoyed a breathtaking view as the beach was right across it. How I loved sitting by the balcony watching the people enjoying swimming or sunbathing, walking up and down the coast early in the morning and again late afternoon.

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe HotelThe bathroom was well lit, spacious and spotless. Towels were fragrant and were changed
daily. Slippers of excellent quality, bath robes, hairdryer and a complete set of toiletries. The walk-in shower cubicle had wooden floor for stability and the rainforest shower had good power and felt high end.

The Ciao Stelio Deluxe HotelVerdict

My stay at the Ciao Stelio Deluxe Hotel in Larnaca was memorable once again. The room was comfortable, the people who run the business lovely, but what I really want to point out were the amazing staff who were a bunch of professionals. Every single person I encountered at the hotel was incredibly friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for great accommodation while in Cyprus, I would highly recommend the Ciao Stelio Deluxe Hotel.

  1. Signed in to for updates! Popi I came across your website accidentally and loved it, not to mention that I think I have found the unique hotel for this summer’s vacation. The Ciao Stelio seems perfect for our short stay in Larnaca before we head to Limassol and Troodos.
