The bulk of the Limassol hotels can be found along the city's main tourist strip on the northeastern side of the Old City. Since these hotels offer proximity to a beach, they are all essentially beach hotels, though some are closer to the sand than others. The true beach hotels in Limassol come at a higher price, so travelers can save some money by staying at a more inland hotel. While lodging in Limassol is relatively expensive on the whole, there are hotels to fit just about any budget, and budget-minded travelers can expect reduced rates outside of the peak summer season.
For those who are interested in luxury hotels for their Cyprus escape, Limassol is home to a number of upscale lodging retreats. One of the best luxury Limassol hotels is the Le Meridien Limassol Spa and Resort. This self-contained holiday complex can be found about eight miles outside of town, and its extensive grounds are home to an array of tantalizing facilities that cater to adults and kids alike. The onsite spa is one of the facility highlights, and it boasts a smaller, award-winning thalassotherapy spa. Other facilities that help to make this one of the best beach hotels in Limassol include a complete health and fitness club, a PADI-certified scuba shop, four tennis courts, and a theater that puts on live shows and concerts from June to October. When guests aren't enjoying any number of fun activities during their stay, they can break for something to eat at one of the hotel's nine restaurants. They can also relax in their ultra comfortable room or suite. There are 329 total guest units at Le Meridien, and they are nicely equipped. Standard amenities in these bright and cheery units include high-speed internet access, private climate control, satellite TV, an alarm clock with a CD player, and a mini bar.
When five-star Limassol accommodations are the aim, the Four Seasons Hotel (pictured) is another establishment worth considering. Of all the luxury beach hotels in Limassol, this might just be the most luxurious. In fact, the Four Seasons Limassol is arguably the most luxurious hotel in all of Cyprus. Fronting the hotel is an enticing sandy beach, and much like the Le Meridien Hotel, the Four Seasons offers an impressive array of facilities, including an excellent spa. There are two outdoor swimming pools that guests can use when they're not swimming at the beach, and the gym is ideal for staying on top of workouts. A handful of bars and restaurants add to the facilities, as do the 304 exceptional rooms and suites. In addition to an elegant décor, in-room amenity highlights include Jacuzzi tubs, satellite TV, high-speed internet access, a safe, and coffee and tea making facilities. As is true at many of the luxury hotels in Cyprus, room service is available around the clock at the Four Seasons, so guests can always choose to dine in their cozy quarters. Discerning travelers who are interested in the boutique hotel experience will likely find the Londa Hotel to be a better fit when it comes to upscale Limassol accommodations. It offers a more intimate lodging experience.
In addition to a collection of excellent five-star hotels, Limassol and the surrounding area are also home to an array of attractive four-star establishments. One of the best four-star Limassol hotels is the Atlantica Oasis Hotel, which re-opened in 2007 after partial renovations. The Atlantica Oasis can be found in the heart of Limassol and it's just a short walk from a good city beach. In addition to being close to a good beach, the Atlantica Oasis also offers proximity to some of the city's best bars and clubs, not to mention some enticing restaurants. Back at the hotel, guest rooms and suites offer ideal environments for relaxing when you're not out and about. Satellite TV, air conditioning, heating, a mini fridge, a balcony, and a direct-dial telephone figure among the standard amenities in the guest units. Should you spend extra on a superior guest unit, you can also expect the amenities to include complimentary bathroom amenities, comfy robes and slippers, a CD player, and other welcoming perks. Outside of the rooms and suites, guests at the Atlantica Oasis will find a complete spa and wellness center, a laid-back café, a restaurant that specializes in Cyprus and international cuisine, a poolside taverna, and four bars. The Atlantica brand offers a number of attractive Cyprus hotels to choose from. Four can be found in Limassol, while the others can be found in Paphos and Ayia Napa.
If you aren't interested in paying extra for top of the line Limassol accommodations, three-star hotels such as the Curium Palace Hotel can be ideal. One of the best things about the Curium Palace is its central location. Guests will be close to shopping streets and beaches, and history enthusiasts will be happy to know that the Archaeological Museum isn't far off. The Curium Palace Hotel recently underwent complete renovations, and it is better than ever. The 63 rooms and suites now feature electric key card systems and large, flat-screen televisions. Each guest unit also has at least one balcony, air conditioning, satellite TV programming, a mini bar, a safety deposit box, and a telephone with voice mail. The Curium Palace facilities might not be as complete as they are at the more upscale Limassol hotels, but they do include an excellent restaurant that specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, a terrace café, a pool bar, and a more chic indoor bar. The hotel also features a small fitness center, as well as event and meeting facilities. You can spend less at cheaper hotels like the Luxor Guest House when visiting Limassol, but you won't get nearly as much bang for your buck as you will at the Curium Palace.
