From the moment you arrive at this beautifully restored hotel in the hill village of Lofou (Lofos) in Cyprus, you feel the world slip away from you. The hotel is a group of village buildings, restored using traditional materials and techniques in a village that is protected from any other form of construction. The pool area is tranquil and cool... More

Renovated sympathetically rebuilt full of character boutique hotel owned by architect and interior designer wife. We had one of the best meals in Cyprus cooked by local ladies who know their cooking. The Sunday Meze lunch is highly recommended. The manager and his wife who run the hotel are totally charming and nothing is too much trouble. Although it is... More

We were a party of 13 ,4 of them celebrating their 60th Birthday. We couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us, we have never stayed anywhere with such attentive staff, without being intrusive. On our celebration night the staff even joined in with the activities and singing, good sports... More

We had a lovely 4 nights at Apokryfo. The hotel has been sympathetically designed and restored to fit into the picture-perfect village of Lofou. We went for several walks around Lofou picking walnuts, almonds and pomegranate from the trees. It was very quiet when we where there but that suited us well. Our room 'Sterna House' was spacious with a... More

We arrived late to this hotel to be warmly greeted by the manager. Staff had prepared a lovely platter of food for us as they were concerned we would be hungry - a really lovely personal touch. The hotel is beautifully decorated in keeping with the rustic charm of the village. Food was delicious and service impeccable. No matter that... More

A wonderful, wonderful hotel - impeccable interior design, gorgeous food and the most welcoming and charming staff. The only thing I´d change is the lack of loungers, somehow we had the feeling you´re not really expected to stay at the hotel during the day which is strange given its remote location. Also an alternative option to the very good but... More

This is a beautiful hotel. In a very quiet sleepy village in the mountains. The room (we had Walnut) was spacious and well appointed - with air conditioning, a TV (which we never used!), fridge and instant coffee making facilities. Good size bathroom. Lovely large balcony overlooking the pool and with sunshine until lunchtime. Extensive 'buffet style' breakfast selection, included... More

We spent the second half of our 10 day holiday in Cyprus. The hotel is in the mountains of Cyprus and is very well signposted from the winding mountainous roads. The hotel looked amazing and we had been upgraded to a bigger room due to room availability. Our room was quite large with a bedroom, en suite and lounge area... More

We drove past a lake and mountain views up to a beautifully designed and decorated hotel in an attractive quiet village. This is a well maintained, exceptionally clean boutique hotel that has everything you may need. Efficient wi-fi, television and dvd's ( which we didn't watch ) The best thing about our stay was the food. Really exceptional and delicious.... More

Appearance speaks for itself, Traditional character is reflected in every detail, along with comfort and an enchanting atmosphere. The crew dedicated cares gave a very pleasant stay and the service gives much beyond the obvious and actually completes all to a dream. The place is incredibly clean and well maintained. Very nice for a short or long stay (my family... More
