We stayed at the Louis Imperial Beach for 2 weeks in September. We chose this hotel for our wedding and our expectations were certainly exceeded. The location of the hotel as perfect, it was set on the beach and it is down a quiet road off the main road so very quiet. Out the front of the hotel you can walk to shops, bas ad resturants and from the back you can walk along the promenade. Either way you can get to the harbour. It only took us 20 minutes in the middle of the day.
The hotel itself is grand in appearance, all public areas were spotless. The public areas were warmer than our bedroom but i didnt find them too hot. Our air con worked well and kept the room really cold, we did have problems with it when we arrived but it was fixed immediately. Our room was large quiet and we all slept well.
The food was amazing, they had a different cuisine every night of the week, Cypriot, Far East, Middle East, International, Carvery, Italian and All Around the World, our favourite was the Far East Night. You do have to sit inside at night but you can sit outside at Breakfast and Lunch. Men have to wear trousers to sit in the main restuarant in the evening, you can dress more casually and sit at the back where the food is.Breakfast time there is everything you could want, Cereal, pastries, bread, porridge, fruit, pancakes, cooked breakfast, they even cook omelets to order. Lunch time there is sandwiches, salad, and hot food too. We stayed all inclusive and had an A La Carte Meal as part of are stay (you are entitled to 1 per week) it was a beautiful 4 course meal and we could sit out side. There was plenty of restaurants for those not staying all inclusive, we saw a French, African, Italian, Chinese and Rib shack all down the road from the hotel. There were also a selection of bars near by.
The pool was large and lovely and clean, we sat near the baby pool as we had a 18 month old daughter. She was happy to play in the baby pool all day, there were even toys in there for children. We never had to fight for a sunbed, the hotel was relatively quiet as we arrived the week after the summer holidays. It was mostly couples and families at the hotel and we met some lovely people. The staff were absolutely fantastic, nothing was too much trouble.
The entertainment consisted of Kids disco at 8.30 which our little girl loved, then bingo and a cabaret show everynight so i did get a bit repetitive. We mostly enjoyed the entertainment on a Wednesday when there was just live singing on, this was more relaxing. The entertainment staff did try so hard and they were lovely especially Katya. There was plently of activities during the day including, water aerobics, darts, table tennis, archery but there was no pressure to take part and they werent noisy.
We got married on 12th September, This was absolutely perfect and we couldnt have asked for more. Christine our wedding planner from Thomas Cook made sure the day went without a hitch. We had our ceremony in the gardens overlooking the sea then went onto the terrace for our cake and champagne. We then went on a cruise along the coast, then the wedding bus and then back to the hotel for our meal. The gardens were decorated beautifully, i would definitely recommend getting married at this hotel. We had a party of 13 and this was perfect, We were treated like royalty, we had a flambe meal as part of our wedding package which was delicious. We also received breakfast in bed the day after our wedding and our bed was decorated with rose petals.
All in all we had the most amazing family holiday and wedding, every single one of our guests loved the hotel, its staff and food. (and we had some fussy guests!) Nobody could fault the experience at all. The lifts were a bit slow which was annoying but that was the only downfall. The rooms are dated but this did not affect our enjoyment. I would certainly recommend this hotel to couples and families. The hotel was classy but not too posh to be yourself or bring children. It was perfect.
