"Relaxing, peaceful, great value and quality accomodation."
I stayed at The Grove Spa for 10 days with a friend and two teenagers. The modern apartment was spacious, clean and well stocked with all the basics, clean bedding and towels etc. There was a lovely view from the roof terrace..beautiful place to watch the sun set and have dinner. The onsite swimming pools were super, kept clean and sun loungers provided. Take your own beach towels. There was no Spa, as yet, but we knew that before we went.
The local shop was within easy walking distance, as was a couple of quiet tavernas and a pub. The nearest beaches were within 10 mins drive and all had loungers and umbrellas to hire at decent prices.
We had already arranged car hire from the airport (Larnaca- 20 minutes drive), which we would recommend as we like to explore. One trip we don't want to repeat was our visit to Nicosia. Amazingly we all stayed calm but it took us forever to find a parking place, 20euros to cross the border and by then we'd all lost the will so just craved to be back at the pool.
A local trip we did enjoy was to the Hala Sultan Tekke, it's a very prominent Mosque beside the salt lake on the way into Larnaca.
Although the apartment itself didn't have internet you could get free wi-fi from beside the reception area.
So, to sum up, a very relaxing and peaceful holiday in quality accommodation.
