I was unfortunate enough to spend christmas at this hotel, and I think I can say without fear of argument that it is probably the dirtiest, grubbiest hotel that I have ever stayed in. I saw a vacuum cleaner once during my stay, but it never found its way to either my room or the public areas. I don't feel that I want to write a "war and peace" about this hotel, but in all the times that I have visited Cyprus (approx the last 12 years) and stayed in 2 and 3 star hotels I have never had such a depressing holiday. There was only about a dozen people in the hotel the whole time that I was there, and only 2 of us on half board. Dinner was shipped in from another establishment, and was unrecognisable and either luke warm or cold. We gave up midway and ate out for the rest of our time there. The bathrooms were unbelievable, and indescribable. I didn't even have any enamel on my bath. The staff try very hard, but are not being given the tools to work with, consequently it is unfair to complain to them to much. If the rates are too cheap then they need to renegotiate with the holiday companies, and clean their act up. Sorry, but I couldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

On the 14th of October I stayed at the Caravel Hotel, in Limassol, Cyprus with three other friends of mine, . Because it was out of season, they gave us a good price. 25 Euros for a single room and 36 Euros for a double room. But what I can say for sure is I will never stay there again. When we arrived at the hotel, we were quite disturbed by the heavy smell of the hotel. It was the smell of dampness. Then we entered our rooms and it was again a big disappointment for all of us,. That heavy smell was in the rooms as well. Besides the smell, the washbasin was broken and the white bath had turned into grey. We thought the hotel definitely had to be closed down and renovated. It must be forbidden to accept quests under those conditions. The breakfast was also very poor.
The only good thing about the hotel is the beach opposite. It is fantastic.
You can spend the whole day there as we did; eat, drink, swim, play, walk and watch the sunset. A very relaxing beach despite the disappointment at the hotel..

The hotel is very scruffy and areas such as the dining room and pool area are dirty and don'tt seem to have been cleaned properly.

In a day 10 stay bed line & towels were only changed once despite complaining to reception and for the first 3 days the room wasn't cleaned at all.

Food is disgusting; no attempt at presentation, tasteless, luke warm and very very oily.

Requests and complaints are noted but little action taken and staff are not very friendly.

This is the worse Cypriot hotel I've stayed in and I would not recommend staying here at all.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

This is a two star plus hotel, which could become a three star plus hotel with some more investments which will probably happen in the next few years. The rooms are basic and clean, the furniture in the rooms is relatively new, the A/C units in the rooms are new, the food varies from decent to very good. Most rooms have a balcony with sea view, which is very rare in two star hotels. The two blonde ladies at the reception are very kind and friendly. The waiter serving dinner is gorgeous - short hair, tall, lean, handsome, kind, and with the most beautiful blue eyes that I have ever seen. The hotel is across the street from the beach, there are supermarkets to the left and right, and the bus stop for line no. 30 that goes to the center. All in all, the value for money is excellent. I hope they will refurbish the bathrooms and the carpets in the hotel, but the rest is okay, and even more than okay. I heard that the next thing they will be working on is satellite TV in each room. Remember, if you want a fancy hotel, stay at the Four Seasons or the Meridien. If you pay for a two star, don't expect a five star hotel. For me, the best thing was the balcony and the sea view, and the proximity to the beach, bus, the supermarkets on either side. Just take care when crossing the street, they drive like crazy and don't stop for pedestrians.

Room Tip: Rooms are clean, bathrooms need serious renovations.

Excellent location, 5 minutes walk from one of the best beqched in Limassol.
Sea view from rooms of upper floors.
Normal-sized pool with sunbeds that can be put on the grass under the palms.
VERY POOR breakfast, no change day after day. BUT VERY GOOD DINNERS with a large choice of meat, fish, vegetables and fruits every day.
20 minutes by bus to the centre. We walked there during 2 hours (if you are ready for it).
Friednly staff.
Enough space on the parking.
Normal split-system in the room (with deposit for the controler at the reception).
Sotimes there were problems with water (probably because of the top floor where we lived).
