Elegant hotel-golf resort, kids club, tennis & spaPosted Feb 19, 2014
Pros: Clean, elegant hotel with a selection of activities for all the family.
Cons: Older kids (7-11 year olds): More space for football etc. Tennis & golf camps did not run as low numbers but both poorly marketed & organised.
Location: Need a car. 20 mins Paphos. 75mins Larnaca. Tennis and Golf at a price on the resort. Pissouri close by and stunning coastline.
Stayed here for a night in Feb. Upgrade by the hotel prior to arrival to a jnr suite as staying on my own with 2 kids. Hubby then joined so worked well. He is an Ambassador with IHG. Highly recommend this. We enjoyed free water, fruit and biscuit treats in our room, bath robes, a Cypriot gift of honey and a late check out until 4pm. The breakfast is extensive and enjoyable. Omelette cooked to order & pastries were my undoing. As hotel guests, the children could go to kids club free of charge. As it was the winter, the kids club was open 9-5pm with various activities every hour, there was a football academy camp run by a lovely Welsh chap called Lee for 10 Euro/hr. This worked well for catering for older boys (approx 6-10 yrs) who had outgrown kids club. The outdoor pools were too cold to swim in Feb but there was a small heated indoor pool with flaps to a smaller outside pool which the children enjoyed. A basic, clean and functioning gym also available (unlike the gym in the spa building which you have to pay extra to use, which has a larger proportion of exercise units out of order or lacking key components, like foot holds for exercise bikes). Zumba brill (extra). 2 tennis courts available to guests but recommend BYO racquets and balls rather than borrow. Tennis academy (Annabel Croft) in the resort. Expensive, but good private lessons. Could be better organised and marketed to cater for group lessons. ditto golf. only hotel buffet, pub and costa open in Feb. Staff super.

4 star hotel at 5 star pricesPosted Sep 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms are nice, but very small - a 'junior suite' is actually a single room smaller than a king size room at a comparable hotel. With the exception of a few outstanding staff, the hotel is very anonymous and doesn't give the kind of personal, attentive service that one would expect to receive from a 5* hotel. Customer service on the one occasion I had to speak to them was rude to the point of being confrontational. Food wise the breakfast selection is broad and buffet style, other than that the only really good restaurant that we found was the Italian restaurant Zimi. The rest served decidedly average food at inflated prices - 2 adults and a 2 year old at the buffet dinner costs ~€100 without drinks. The 'dine around' half board offer is confusing - it cost €36 per person per night but gives you an allowance of between €26-€30 in the restaurants excluding drinks. Based on speaking to locals I'd say the better option is the Almyra in Paphos which we would have switched to if we hadn't prepaid. It wasn't an unpleasant holiday, it just wasn't memorable particularly given the price.

5* luxury ruined by 1* guestsPosted Aug 6, 2013
Pros: Room, views
Cons: Children and families
Location: Great location with assortment of eating establishments.
Beautiful hotel upon arrival. Overall facilities good, and rooms are finished with high quality and luxury. My disappointment came when I thought this hotel couldn't get any better until we were shocked to see how a 5* hotel seemed more interested I quantity of guests than preservation of quality. The pool area was like benidorm: what seemed like hundreds of children screaming and throwing balls around. Breakfast was chaotic or the same reason. The hotel needs to find equilibrium between its guests and the quality it offers; sadly this hotel has let itself down. Adult only would dramatically increase this hotels overall appeal, but if spending vast amounts to have an obnoxious child scream over your breakfast conversation this is the place for you. (Don't recommend for couples, business travellers, or anybody but families)

Great hotel but needs better restaurant choicesPosted May 16, 2013
Pros: Location, rooms, pool area
Cons: Paying for room wifi and limited restaurant choices
Location: On top of a cliff overlooking the golf course and sea - away from towns.
The hotel itself and its location are both very pleasing. However, apart from an excellent breakfast, the quality of restaurant choices is below the standard one would expect from a hotel of this quality. They need at least one restaurant serving international fine dining in my opinion. And they charge for wifi in rooms which I find unacceptable in this day and age.

Pleasant hotel but very busy in Aug with childrenPosted Aug 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
Overall a pleasant hotel, nice rooms. Expensive for drinks, especially soft drinks. Buffet restaurant average. Stayed in August for 3 nights, very busy with lots of children.

Fab hotel & facilities with excellent kids clubPosted Apr 23, 2012
We stayed in a junior suite - the room was lovely but a bit smaller than expected and the "suite area" wasn't a separate area - we were sharing with our 2 kids who slept in the sofa bed. Bathroom was enormous. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The main swimming pool wasn't heated so pretty chilly in April (although there were some people using it), the indoor pool (which has an ourdoor section) was heated to 29 degrees so much more pleasant. Breakfast was buffet style and very good quality. We dined at Italian and the Taverna on village square - both good quality but a pricier than you'd pay outside of Aphrodite Hills.

Nearly perfect!Posted Mar 19, 2012
Everything was lovely and perfect. The one flaw was that we were staying in a suite for four, and the fold out bed that was meant for one person, so one of them ended up on the floor. Otherwise just lovely. Beautiful pool, fun things to do around the grounds, great breakfast, great room, terrific views.

Good ExperiencePosted Nov 11, 2009
Very nice facilities and spotlessly clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfasts but food in evening expensive for what it was. Wine and drinks terribly expensive - but I suppose that is what you expect from a 5-star establishment. All in all a good experience and we would go again.

Very DisappointedPosted Mar 9, 2009
We stayed at this hotel in February, only 2 out of 7 resturants were open, the indoor heated pool was not heated and the hazard tape around the outside pools was very off putting. However the weather was so bad (cold, rainy and strong winds)you could not use the pools even if they had been filled. The staff were excellent as were the maid service but our experience was not a 5* one. Cyprus is not a year round island as advertised, but is open from April - October.
