Reviewed 26 June 2013

We visited Cyprus and Lantiana Gardens for the first time in May of this year. First of all, and most importantly we were very impressed by the overall cleanliness of the room and the hotel in general. The room was cleaned every day. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed half board, and the breakfast and evening meal choice was both varied and of good quality. The evening meal was buffet style and had a different theme each night. The location we felt was excellent being in a quiet situation and just a pleasant 10 minute walk from both the stunning clear waters of Fig Tree Bay and the bars and restaurants of Protaras. Protaras caters for everyone having nice restaurants and a lively selection of bars. Also Ayia Napa is just a short bus ride away!!!!! We spent most of our holiday on the beach, but we did manage an interesting and historical trip to the ghost town of Famagusta, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were so both impressed by Lantiana Gardens and Protaras that we have just booked to go back in October!!!

As a family of 4 with 2 young children (3 and 1), we took a great deal of time choosing what we thought would be the right hotel for us. After a day of travelling, we arrived at the hotel with two very tired and hungry children, to be told the hotel didn't have the one bedroom apartment that we had booked available. As you can imagine I was absolutely horrified. We were offered as a replacement, what can only be described as, a studio shack out in the hotel car park. It wasn't even part of the hotel. Having read previous reviews I can see that this has happened to other poor families in the past and I honestly believe that this little outhouse has been made up for occasions such as this when they overbook!
I asked to speak to the manager who really didn't appear sympathetic to our situation. In fact he was quite sarcastic and rude. He didn't like the fact that I was getting so upset in case other guests heard. He basically told me the best he could do was move me to a 1 bedroom apartment 2 days later but this was the best he could offer. We were only there for a week and I didn't want to spend the majority of our time unpacking and packing 4 cases, and in the end just decided to stay in the downgraded accommodation (which they call the bungalow) and we just spent as little time there as possible. I got a small refund which really didn't have an impact on the cost of the holiday overall.
If it was just a couple of people staying in the accommodation it may not have been too bad, but it was really difficult as a family of 4. Firstly the accommodation had lots of steps leading up to the front door which wasn't ideal with a double buggy. The room was very dated and shabby. The shower/toilet was tiny and a bit grotty and never had hot water (just warm if lucky). The best part about the room was that it had a little garden area outside with sun loungers, but unfortunately I couldn't just leave the doors open and let the children play there as it wasn't fenced off and they were able to just walk off towards the car park and busy road.
On the second day of our holiday I returned to the room during the day to find a builder in our room drilling and making a mess. I asked what he was doing and he said he was putting up a soap dispenser!? He left dust all over our things in the bathroom. I complained about the fact no one had informed us work was going to be carried out on our room while we were staying there and that the mess needed clearing up. We had house keeping coming in but the dust was never cleaned so I had to try and do it myself with the kids wet wipes! And after all that, the soap dispenser never had soap put in it anyway.
Overall I just felt like there was a huge lack of respect for me and my family.
Location is quite good and the walk to the main strip and beach is only 10-15 minutes. There is a supermarket just up the road which is handy.
Hotel was average and pool was quite nice.
Most of the bar and reception staff were pleasant and friendly.
Protaras is a lovely place and we have been many times.
All in all though not a great experience for us this time unfortunately. That will teach us to book with a cowboy holiday firm called Sunshine! Watch out for them as never again for us. I actually rang Sunshine when we arrived at the hotel to inform them of what had happened. They said they would look into alternative hotels and call me back. They never did.
I have never written a holiday review before but I was so cross about the way we were treated that I wanted to warn others.

My boyfriend and i have just come back from a one week stay here and the hotel and staff are lovely!! The room was spacious and spotless, no bath but that suited us as why would you want to sit in a warm bath when its 35 degrees outside, free aircon (remote was given to us when we checked in) all i will say is due to no black out curtain you wake up early with the sun beaming in! No hairdryer or full length mirror but maybe thats a personal preference. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming, you dont really have to move from your seat/sun bed as they wait on you hand and foot! Pool area is pleasant but fairly small but not a problem for us with the award winning beach practically on the door step. We are a young lively couple and found the surrounding area sufficient enough to keep us entertained also a 15 minute bus ride to ayia napa! Cannot wait to go back! Also we went self catering andcate out all the time. The lantiana offers food and a themed buffet in the evening. Lovely!

Just back from yet another lovely stay at Lantiana.This hotel is exceptionally clean and modern and always smells fresh. Ideally situated, slighly back from the mainstreet, hence no noise at night to disturb your sleep. Excellent service from all the staff,from cleaners to management and they are all very friendly, nothing is too much trouble. All rooms are well equipped and bright.Food choice is very good unless you are very hard to please. Lots of perks too, free air con, safety deposit box and free use of the hotel gym.Would highly recommend this hotel. Will be going back next year for definite, so see you then.

Myself and 2 friends stayed June 2012.
Was very easy to book with quick email response from George
Great location with a 5 mins walk down path to the side of the hotel, steps by the pool bar to the bars & restaurants and then another 5 mins to the beach.
Great service around the pool, beers always cold and food reasonable price with staff always friendly.
Good pool with plenty of sunbeds with also a few under some shade of trees at far end of pool patio area.
Would recommend to all, families, couples and friends.
One thing we always judge among ourselves is if we would bring our partner to hotel...and this definitely got a yes from all 3 of us
Only minus would be the size of the balcony but not a major factor for us.

Just returned from two weeks at this exellent hotel, the Lantiana is a very clean & well looked after hotel,it is in only five minutes from Fig Tree Bay, & a couple of minutes from the "strip", far enough away not to be disturbed with any noise.
Being on half board we were allocated a standard size hotel room, bright & modern, very comfortable twin beds with extra pillows provided, small balcony with table & chairs, flat screen TV, not many english speaking channels though!. The air con was very good, no charge for this, the safe in the room cost five euro's which was returned to you upon leaving the hotel.
The bathroom was very modern, fully tiled, glass screened powerful shower, plenty of hot water day or night.
The second week of our stay being the last of the season & the hotel being very quiet, we were offered a change of room, which we accepted, to an "apartment style" one, this consisted of a standard size bedroom exactly same as the first room plus a large lounge / kitchen area. The bathroom was the same size as the standard but the shower was over the bath & is yet to be modernised, but was perfectly adequate, there was air con in both rooms.The rooms were cleaned every day, towels & bed linen changed regularly.
The food was excellent, full english or continental buffet at breakfast, plus good choice of fruit, nuts & cereals. At lunch there was an extensive menu to choose from at very reasonable prices. The evening meal was mainly buffet style with quiet a varied selection of dishes to choose from.
There was a very good selection of drinks from the bar, but towards the end of the second week the selection was less due to it being the end of season, prices of drinks comparable to uk, but cheaper during the two "happy hour/hours" sessions 4pm till 6pm & 10pm till midnight, service was excellent from all waiters & bar staff, big thank-you to Elena, Danny & Micheal.
There was a large swimming with easy access, a small childrens pool & plenty of comfortable sunbeds around the pool.
The reception area was bright & cheerfull, comfortable seating area with air conditioning. The reception staff & management were always on hand, helpfull & cheerfull with everyone.
I would recommend the Lantiana to anyone looking for a friendly relaxing hotel with excellent service, rooms & facilities.
Thanks to all at the Lantiana for making our stay one to remember for all the right reasons, hope to return again soon.
Ian & Lin

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room if you like the sun all day.

Just come back from a great week in Protaras. If I went back to Protaras, I would go back to Lantiana. Really good access to a great beach, far enough from the noise in the centre of the town at night so it ceases to be a nuisance, close to the tavernas, shops and Lidl. Lidl does some really nice freshly baked bread.

The rooms were a little on the small side, and whilst the hotel is styled on the 60s, some of the appliances probably came from the 60's. The fridge motor made a rather alarming pop every time it stopped cycling the coolant. But it did the job. And for that, I was going to have to give Lantiana 9/10.

But then I remembered. We had free air conditioning, and free safe deposit box. Full 10/10. It is nice to not be fleeced by the hotel as soon as you turn up; a nice change (actually, didn't use the aircon - it was not really required; October is comfortably warm).

Staff were really pleasant and helpful. I think we had a full maid service 6 days, and for the other day the bins were emptied and covers put on the beds. It was clean. Each night there was a different themed night for food, which was good value.

Great holiday, lovely place, great hotel. You either love or hate the decor; it made me smile. Would I go back to Protaras - for a beach holiday, yes, with bells on, and back to that hotel as well...but there are other places to see and other holidays to have before I do that. But I would certainly not be upset to go back.
