Grand Resort or Meditteranean Beach?

We have narrowed our holiday search down to these 2 hotels in Limassol as both in budget and on the beach. We want to stay in a good standard hotel but be able to walk by the sea and to other restaurants easily. The Grand is a 5 star but some of the reviews don't seem very positive regarding rooms, noise, whereas the Meditteranean is getting better reviews but is 4 star. Anyone able to advise?

Hi, The Grand is in a quieter location with a handful of restaurants across the road it is next to the Elias beach hotel which is lovely even though it is four star .

The Mediterranean Beach Hotel is about a five minute drive down the road, there are more restaurants and bars to choose from. I Would not worry about it being four star it is a lovely hotel but I would advise on getting a sea view as the main road is very noisy at night with boy racers.The number 30 bus stops outside and will take you down to the old port 10km down the road where there are some lovely places to eat overlooking Limassol Castle.

If you want a quieter area have a look at Elias Olympic holidays usually have good offers on it, I loved my stay there and would go back now if I could.Julie

The Grand is lovely, I enjoyed my stay there and had no issues at all. Next door to the grand is St Raphael which is very good. The above 2 are in a quieter location but the beach walkway is good for a stroll down to the Mediterranean beach hotel area and the bus service is excellent. I've not staged in the Mediterranean but it does loom nice from the beach walkway.

We have stayed in the Grand Resort when it was the Hawaii Grand (we actually stayed there when we got married in Cyprus) and it was very good. Have also stayed in Elias Beach and St Raphael but for New Year and again have no complaints. It is in the quieter part but has Chesters across the road if you want to go to another bar for a change. We like this area but we also like the area where Mediterranean Beach is as we used to live about 10 mins from there. We haven't stayed at Mediterranean Beach but have been to various functions there and the food was excellent. We have been told and not sure how true it is but the Mediterranean Beach is only 4 start because they cannot offer the conference facilities other hotels can.

We have stayed at the Med Beach twice and it is a great hotel. The bathrooms have all been upgraded this year.
