Value for Money!
Poseidonia Beach Hotel in Limassol enjoys a prime location, surrounded by landscaped gardens offers a pool, restaurant and Spa centre. I remember how on my first visit I felt a kind of an unexplainable bond with this hotel. Ever after the owners undertook to run the Poseidonia Beach Hotel themselves, they made so many changes that nowadys nothing reminds of the past. With fresh ideas and new spirit the business accomplished an upward ranking and definitely deserves it. As for the ‘Poseidonia Weddings’ they have become synonymous with romantic celebrations here.
Greeted with smiles, hugs and kisses and an authentic and warm “Welcome back” -words coming from people who all they want is to make guests feel at home. Traveling on my own due to my work, is not that comfortable or pleasant and with this third visit seeing my ‘friends’ I felt so happy and lucky to have them around. This is my third visit and I managed to book after a last minute cancellation as the hotel was fully booked. I finally spent 3 amazing nights!
I had the corner newly refurbished Executive Sea View Suite #503. Aesthetically pleasing, with a comfy king size bed with crisp linen and lots of pillows. The contemporary interior offers the ultimate comfort and relaxation. A truly homely feeling with sitting room setting, a handy worktable, not to mention its breathtaking view!
The nicely furnished and vibrant suite offered the absolute delight of a stay, nothing less than what I expected. Besides the balcony and the floor-to-ceiling window, there was another one by the corner for extra light and view. Looking down from this window it seems as if you can dive from the suite right down the swimming pool. Never elsewhere have I stayed so close to water!
Once I entered the suite I was delighted to see a platter of fruit, some wine and water. A wonderful touch! A Safe and a hairdryer as well as coffee/tea facilities and a daily supply of water are provided, even ironing facilities-but the latter, not in suites. The only downside; the Wi Fi in the room which is extremely slow, complimentary though, on the ground floor.
In the morning I would wake up early to the most beautiful view of the Mediterranean and wait out by the balcony with the first cup of coffee for the gorgeous sunrise. What a lovely way to start the day! The most awesome sunrises throughout my 5-week trip to Cyprus were the ones out here at the Poseidonia Beach Hotel.
Although the hotel was fully occupied, you could hardly notice it. I had a chat with several residents who were repeaters and spoke highly for this business. Some of them keep coming for more than 15 years and they have become friends with the staff and management. Just like myself, they also feel like returning to friends. I met two British couples who had already reserved their rooms for the holidays
The Beach from the Suite
An incident I experienced here left me speechless. Leaving for Larnaca I left behind a packet of goodies in the mini bar. I called the front desk requesting to share it between them as a treat from me. I could never expect Skevi, the new member of the team calling me at 9:00pm asking where exactly I was to hand me the goodies, driving all the way from Limassol after her shift that same evening. This is one of the many examples of how guests are treated at the Poseidonia. The extra credit goes to Skevi and I look forward to meeting her again when I am back the next time. I could not thank her enough!
Taken on the ground floor overlooking the beach. The interior is nicely decorated and has access to the beach-front with an outdoor seating. Friendly and accommodating service, American breakfast with normal and healthy options, quality goodies, enough to fill you up for hours.
With lots of appointments outside, I managed to dine with friends at the main restaurant on the upper floor the very last evening. In the relaxed setting of the beautiful terrace with great company, and exquisite tastes, I admit I enjoyed every bite.
Sports & Entertainment
The animation program is varied with all sorts of competitions keeping guests busy and happy. Besides the outdoor swimming pool which is covered and heated in winter, there is a children’s pool as well.
Garden and Beach
Well-appointed sunbeds cover a big part of the grassy space opposite the beach, with several more by the pool. Only steps away from the sand the Wanax Beach Bar offers variety of cocktails and snacks. I love coming here after sunbathing for a glass of beer or a snack.
The Blue Flag sandy beach is beautiful and popular. I remember how I was counting the days to come here and to my bad luck when I did, I noticed signs of catching a cold and confined in taking photos only. I kept watching the activity of the sailing club mostly from the suite this time.
The Bar at the Lobby
Poseidonia Beach Hotel has a lot to offer. I spent 3 memorable nights enjoying high standards, first class customer service and authentic Cypriot hospitality. The stay exceeded for a third time my expectations and I find it ideal for year round holidays, unique for any age and interest. Rooms are varied with different budget. Why not find the right one for you. I highly recommend it for all the above reasons.
