Venus Beach Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We arrived Sunday morning, and had requested a sea-view room upon arrival, however that was not available. But a sea-view room was only available if we had paid extra. During our stay so far, we have found out that there is a daily charge to use the safe in the room (never experienced this before), so we have had to carry all our valuables with us. There is a charge for wifi, and it only works occsionally and you can only connect 1 device at a time. The hotel says it has a beach, however it has a couple of patches of sand and a warning sign to not swim in the sea. The all-inclusive option is a disappointment. They say they have 4 restaurants, where in actual fact they have a breakfast eating area, lunch eating area, a dining room and a lounge area. These areas are only open at their designated eating times and not open at once. There is a very limited option for food and drinks. They charge you for bottle water and the snacks are a small pot of ice-cream and a couple of cheese sandwiches.You are better off choosing to stay in an apartment or BnB, as this hotel is not worth the money. The rooms are very run down and the bathrooms need updating. No robes or slippers, and you cannot add your own drinks in the mini fridge unless you pay the hotel money. The one good thing about the hotel is majority of the staff. The bar staff, animation guy and the waiter and waitresses are extremely hospitable and really try and make you enjoy the hotel. They are very attentive and helpful. Overall, this is not a 5 star resort. They want to take all your money, and would not recommend staying here again.
The hotel is well maintained but feels a little bit old, the rooms are clean and the staff was nice and welcoming (not all..), the location is very good and its a walking distance from the Tombs (7 min) and from the mall (22 min). The food is good and you have kind of big choices at the dinner. A PAID WIFI is not what you expected from a five star hotel, no fridge at the rooms and the safe also cost you extra.
First off we booked our holiday through Jet2 holidays all inclusive, this hotel was given a 4 star rating and recently held a 5 star rating ( how I will never know) albeit we will not be returning to Venus Beach Hotel again Hotel Grounds When arriving at the hotel from the coach the hotel appeared to be "alright" nothing to outstanding in terms of presentation and decor, the paint was shabby and flaking from the structure, you'd think that in the time when the hotel is closed that would be a perfect time to keep on top of maintenance outside of the building. Lobby The lobby is well presented modern and bright with helpful desk staff and bell boys who take your luggage to your room and don't expect tipping,it is possibly one of the only positive things I have to say about the hotel. Twin Room We arrived at our room on the 3rd floor after arguing with the lift as it seems to be very old and temperamental, the bathroom is old and dated, the bath had yellow ring marks around the edge and still had hairs around the bath and toilet, the floor had yellow staining on to around the toilet, it appears the cleaners need to be trained better, the room was spacious but also dated, two single beds pushed together which easily slid apart if one person was directly in the middle, there was a wardrobe however that also looked as if it had never seen a hoover or any cleaning equipment in that matter. Balcony We booked a room with a "side/sea view" we got what we asked for a slight view of the sea and looking directly over the tomb of the kings, however the balcony was only small enough for a table and two chairs with no room for movement on the tiniest balcony I have ever seen. Beach I don't understand how you can sell a hotel as a beach location when there is NO beach the smallest patch of sand surrounded by earth and boulders sticking out of the ground. Sea Do not go in the sea! It is a red flag sea with locals telling us how many people have drowned in the sea due to a rip tide current. Food Breakfast is possibly the best meal they have to offer just load your self up for the day and prepare to starve for the rest if you're going to stay in the hotel grounds. Lunch is not nothing to rave about a small selection of food mainly fruit and salad bar, however tea time meals are absolutely shocking! They have a theme every night which resembles nothing that they have chosen you have a selection of 2 salad trolleys and 4/5 Bain Marie's containing food which is bland and very tasteless, we found our selves going out for food more often and going to the shop to buy snacks to tide us over. You will also notice you have to eat a different meal in a different room which I couldn't not quite grasp. Drinks Very minimal list often contains no alcohol in any cocktails off their all inclusive list it appears if you like alcohol you have to pay even if you're all inclusive. Entertainment What is hotel entertainment when there is none, look around you and see couple and families on their phones or playing cards. Gym & Sauna The gym is big but dated again and appears to be members only? I don't get this, the indoor pool is small and dirty I wouldn't wash my dog in it! And the sauna you have to pay 7euro to use. Fridge, Wifi & Safe If you want to use the fridge, wifi or safe you have to pay the only all inclusive I know to have done this it appears Venus beach just want to keep taking your money for every little thing. If you're going to stay here I'd recommend you only come b&b as there are plenty of restaurants around if you're hungry and would like a little taste of home, Reilly's fish and chip bar across the road from the hotel is really nice place to each and really friendly staff I'd recommend you try it, if you want to go to the harbour you can catch a bus for 1.50 Euro or a taxi will cost you 8 Euro, if you like to walk there are two ways leave the hotel main entrance turn right and keep walking straight till you hit the shopping centre then turn right again and keep walking and you're there a easy walk and only takes about 40 minutes or you can walk the coast a very lovely and scenic walk, head to the "beach" and then left in front of the sea and follow the trail it'll take you around 1 hour to walk but it passes time really quick.
We really enjoyed our stay here but it was 2 years ago (forgot to review), the food was good and the all inclusive drinks were waiter service which was a bit different. The pool was lovely, plenty of sun loungers, didn't go in the sea as unsafe for swimming and the beach was very rocky.
The hotel is clean and the staff try to compensate for any shortcomings. The superior rooms are what you expect from a standard. The bed linen is changed daily on request as are the towels. The gym is very unfriendly, the staff are unwelcoming to guests and put barriers in the way of guests using the facilities. There is only one restaurant, the buffett, which has no atmosphere, the tables are very close together and the standard of the food varies dramatically. There is NO a la carte restaurant. Despite all shortcomings of the hotel, we had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed our time away in Cypres.
just got back from this hotel rooms need a facelift bed was changed most days breakfast basic English plus continental plenty to choose while we were there the pool was very quiet thou day we left school holidays started got busy with children we had b and b plenty of very good restaurants within walking serving very good Cyprus local food and plenty of it 3courses from 13 euros to 20 euros taxis are very good value 10 euros to harbour which again serves excellent food and entertainment hotel entertainment was not good just music most nights if you want to try this hotel they are only open now march to October staff are very friendly and have been there for many years
We booked full board thro mercury holidays. Chose n because of price a d position . Situation good and staff very friendly and helpful. Food poor to awful. Internet expensive and unreliable. Whole place needs an update. Entertainment out of tune. Too many extras not included.
5star it is not we have seen better 3star, it is the little things like • Staff – mostly happy & polite Melena, Tasso, Maria bar and Mario very helpful pass our thanks they and other staff making our stay better also writing this review a bit positive. But for the porter Chrysanthos just ignored my hand and not very welcoming, being front of house is the face of the hotel. • Room- clean but old weathered marks on stone tables making it look dirty, no tea/coffee making facilities or even bottle water. • Food- Dinner was a good selection but plates need to be warmed, Breakfast very good but sausages tasteless cheap if it is not then change supplier. Plates need heating again also when customers leave lids open the food gets cold so next person gets cold food you think about heated lights above food. • All inclusive- No free WiFi you get everywhere you go now days but here No its extra. Bottle water No you can ask for brandy or pack lunch but no water. If I spotted No WiFi then I would of booked the other hotel. But overall it is a nice hotel good swimming pool & childrens pool also kids club, indoor swimming pool gym they had entertainment and it was the last days before hotel closing But do not have high standards and expect 5Star then you be ok .
I have visited this hotel 3 times in twelve months Venus Beach Hotel has excellent professional staff to please every need for customers Hotel needs decorating & new carpets Food is below average no cheese board no rotation of veg at breakfast Meals monotonous hotel manager needs to consult with catering dept to ensure customers needs are put in place fish constantly cooked in oil It appears the owners of this hotel may be running this hotel down as it has the means to be a good 4 star Improvements for me to visit this hotel again would have to be made I wish all the very professional staff good luck & thank them for all their efforts to make my family most welcome I really hope the Owners and General manager of this beautiful hotel take a more professional approach to the everyday running of the hotel to make it a success The staff & customers deserve this
