The Grecian Sands Hotel is well-positioned in a quiet beachfront spot, just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of lively Ayia Napa.
This place is perched on a hill and has panoramic sea views, which it flaunts at every opportunity. The pool area overflows onto a private, sandy beach and is surrounded by attractive landscaped gardens.
Location-wise, the hotel's strolling distance from Ayia Napa's old town and harbourside tavernas, as well as its bar and club-packed square.

Our daughter and her fiancé chose to get married here and it was the perfect hotel. We arrived a week before the wedding and we were all so relaxed and chilled due to the atmosphere in the hotel. They only had to meet a couple of times to organise wedding plans. The day was perfect. The groom met his guests for cocktails In the Ulysses bar an hour before the wedding. They married on the sea view deck , cake cutting in Ulysses bar photos in hotel grounds. The couple then surprised their 25 guests by organising the Cyprus wedding open top double decker wedding bus to drive around the coast to a beautiful cove for more photos and champagne. We returned to have a wedding BBQ in the outdoor pavilion which was so lovley the staff chefs and food were amazing. The evening ended In a sound proof room where we danced the evening away to their resident dj. The newlyweds were given the penthouse suite for the night which was beautiful and 2 days after the wedding the hotel arranged for the couple to have a romantic candle lit dinner on the sea view deck where they married. They were also given a gift from the hotel.It was a day to remember for all the right reasons thanks to Karen wedding co-ordination from Olympic weddings Ana wedding co-ordination from Grecian Sands hotel. The photographers found by the couple and all the staff involved. The hotel itself as a holiday is wonderful not as big as the sister hotels which we found as a plus point as it was small and friendly. We had a side sea view on the 4th floor with amazing cliff topnsea views. The grounds and pool area were lovelyvwith plenty of sun beds shades and shady areas to sit. The sunshades also housed a button to press for drink service. We were all inclusive and the food was excellent. Breakfast had plenty of choice plus you could also sit al fresco. The snack bar had a menu you could order from or had hot and cold buffet with plenty of choice and delicious deserts. Evening meals were great because you could choose to eat at other restaurants away from the hotel. There was the fishermans hut a tavern fish restaurant on the beach walking distance. The Italian and the Japanese restaurant taxis were organised and paid for by the hotel to take you and bring you back and the roof top burger bar was on the roof of the Grecian sands with fab views. All the food in these restaurants was top notch. The hotel also once a week had a BBQ evening in the grounds with traditional entertainment which was preceded with cocktails in the Ulysses bar with the management greeting you. Also once a week in the grounds was an evening international buffet with entertainment. Therefore during the two weeks stay we only ate in the hotel restaurant twice and this is the only gripe we have with the hotel. This restaurant had a dress code of no shorts for men yet we saw men in scruffy cargo shorts t shirts and sandals allowed in but our men who turned up super smart in tailored shorts proper shirt and shoes were turned away. Plus girls were allowed in with the shortest of shorts!!!! I think Grecian Sands needs to review their policy to tailored smart shorts and not tatty catprgo casual shorts. Gripe over. We had the most magical time here and will definitely return. Special mention to Stella who served at breakfast in the snack bar and Cypriot evenings. Such a lovely cheerful lady who always took an interest in you and made time to chat whilst doing her job. All the staff however were very hardworking. Rooms are being refurbed each closed winter season to help improve your stay.More
Can’t fault this Hotel! Superb location, Great Beach & Pool, excellent food and fantastic staff. Hotel was chosen as a wedding venue and they couldn’t have chosen better, the location for the service overlooking the sea was breath-taking the whole occasion was perfectly organised. Can’t recommend it enough!More
3 stars max
Despite the excellent reviews found on here, and advertising to the contrary, our trip was very disappointing. We booked the half board rate but weren't told that the restaurant only opened at 7pm (730pm some nights), and that there was a strict dress code - both of which made it impossible for us to enjoy the dinner we already paid for (we only brought sandals and the children eat early and go to bed at 7pm). The hotel couldn't give us an alternative and were very unhelpful. On top of this, we paid for the suite to have space for the children, yet the room was tired, things were broken and the bathroom smelt like sewerage. The best part about the hotel is the amazing kids club facility, which we discovered by chance in a back corner of the hotel - a pity reception do not tell guests about it at check in. If you want something 3 star, go here, though keep in mind the restaurant dress code and its manager's delusion that he is working in a Michelin star restaurant in a 5 star hotel.More
What can I say; We have stayed at the Grecian Sands on 6 occasions and is fantastic. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and we have made some real friends there. The food is fresh and made from local ingredients and the menu is varied. The hotel holds very popular weekly Cypriot and barbecue nights. The hotel is situated in the perfect position on the outskirts of Ayia Napa but is close enough for a short stroll into town to sample the night life. I recomend this hotel.More
