We have just returned home after spending 10 days and nights at this very hospitable Hotel.
If you forget about it's 5 star status you can really put an excellent mark here. Something is missing, very difficult to explain: you can see some small things, like holes (small) on the walls in bathroom, a bit dated shower, not too white "white" towels, sun beds and umbrellas, which should be replaced, in my opinion. Beach could be cleaned more properly.
Or, say, German Krombacher beer (very good by the way!) was the only drought in their "British"-like bar.
But value for money is good here.
We liked our room (209 - pool and sea view), which was clean and comfortable, though not big (for 5 star!) enough. We would recommend this type of rooms not only because of the great view, but because you do not have a direct sun here, all other rooms have it eather in the morning or in the second half of the day.
Food was very good (olives were missing - very strange for Cyprus!). We had half-board and were fully satisfied with breakfast buffet (do not forget to ask for fresh orange juice, if you like it - it is free and is not being offered by staff) and most evening meal. Room service is precise and offers very big portions of tasty food - we had our lunch in the room most days as it was too hot in restaurants.
We found prices of food and drinks in the Golden bay affordable and lower than in the same level hotels in Greece. But water worth buying outside hotel, which is not interfering.
Service is great - very friendy staff is always ready to help!
Sea here is the strongest point for families with small kids. After 50 meters it is still half a meter deep only and water is clean and very warm. My daughter's been speding hours in the sea every day!
A-ha, now I got what was slightly disappointing us: the Hotel has a dress code, but does not bother to stop those "gentlemen" in beach shorts entering evening restaurant.
So leave your evening dress home and enjoy the vacation!
We decided that we most probably come next year again, so we recommend Golden Bay Beach Hotel .
