While I was visiting Cyprus, I first spent 5 days at Hilton Nicosia (see review here). As a Diamond member of the Hilton Honors program (top level), I usually stay in Hilton hotels because I get points, free upgrades, free breakfast, free executive lounge access and more. So after spending 5 days in Nicosia and understanding there's not much to do there for such long period, I decided to move to another city – Larnaca – which is on the east side of Cyprus and closer to the sea. This is the review of 5 star Radisson Blu Hotel, Larnaca.
Atlantidon 2, Larnaca 6058, Cyprus
Just like with Hilton, I'm also a Platinum member with Radisson Rewards program and hence I get better rooms, free breakfast, points, award nights etc. So staying at a Radisson hotel would be my second best choice. When I was researching Radisson hotels in Cyprus, I've found out there are only 2. I decided to go with Radisson Blu Larnaca because it's pretty new and I liked the outdoor swimming pool.

The Outdoor Swimming Pool At Radisson Blu, Larnaca
As I mentioned earlier, one of the reasons I decided to stay at Radisson Blu Larnaca is the outdoor swimming pool. I like to swim and when not on vacation I try to swim an hour a day, 5 days a week. And hence when I book a hotel for a vacation, I always try to book a hotel with either an outdoor pool or indoor pool, so I can keep exercising. After all, I really like to eat, but those calories aren't going to burn themselves just like that! Although relatively small, I liked the swimming pool at the Radisson Blu Larnaca. Water temperature wasn't very cold, and if it wasn't cloudy and chill outside, I would have spent more time in the pool.
Spa, Gym & Wellness Center at Radisson Blu Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus
