Amazing 7 days all inclusive holiday, from 22.01.13 till 29.01.13. From the time we, I and my wife, arrived, we were treated like a royal family. The check in was very smooth and very quick. The bell boy was polity and pleasant. The room was very clean and very fresh. Everything one needed was there (dressing gown, slippers, toiletries, tea-coffee facilities, safe free of charge). Only you need to pay for mini bar. You got bottles of water everyday for free. I am allergic to feather bedding, but no problem, it was changed in no time. If you allergic, you need to request before you arrive. Staff at the reception a very helpful and kind. And, now, about the meal. Breakfast: a wild range of everything you can think off and free champagne too. Lunch: you had different dishes everyday and all of them are delicious. Dinner time: you have several dishes, which were presented and very testy. The chef of this hotel is one of the best in the world, we have travel the world and we have seen only a handful of chefs like this quality. You can use the sauna and steam room for free. We booked our trip with Mercury direct and it was very pleasant all the way true. The transfer from airport to hotel and return all in time. The representative was very helpful, because it was off season period, she arranged for us very special excursion.
We recommended this hotel to all of you travelling to Cyprus. Value for money holiday.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fifth floor. It was excellent.

Stayed at St Raphael on numerous occasions. Great friendly quality hotel. Exceptional staff who remember your requirement year after year!. Excellent food, try the lebanese restaurant thats included in the all inclusive.
For a quiet relaxing daytime spot, sunbath in the peace and quiet of the gardens. Front facing rooms have excellent views of the hotels marina and much larger balconys. Side seaviews have small balconys. Hotel is situated a few KM outside limassol, however theres an excellent beach walkway and good bus service.
Enjoy quality without 'stuffiness'

Room Tip: Front facing are best / high floors give a great view (I've found Low Cost Holidays have the bes...

My brother got married at the hotel last year in June, amazing hotel staff always made sure you were happy and checked there was nothing you needed. Pool/pool bar was great water was very clean. Always got a sun bed, and each day a man would bring us frozen towels to keep us cool. Room was nice clean. We had a side room near the front looking out to see and the mountains. Food was great everything you could thing of and coz there was lots of different places to eat it was never busy. The children's pool was great, there is a big grass area where u can chill out and it says quiet area. The beach was very clean. I'm coming back to Limassol in march this year. We went on a boat trip booked with the hotel.

Room Tip: Any with a sea view. Don't have a room at the back even though u see mountains you are on the ro...

Stayed here over Xmas with family and had a great time, plenty of activities to keep the children entertained and great food. On a whole all the staff were friendly, but I must say a special thank you to Nikki on reception who was very welcoming and more than helpful on a few occasions. All the family thoroughly enjoyed their stay and we would definitely return.

The reviews appear to be consistent with my experience. This was my first experience of an all inclusive and was not disappointed. if you have kids then this is a good option with plentiful options for food and facilities to keep the kids entertained. the entertainment team did a great job of keeping the kids out of mischief.

Unfortunately there are too many Russians staying at this hotel who are extremely rude and arrogant. So you have two options, let them get on your nerves or just do what they do.

I would like stay again during summer 2013 but it is pricey so might have to go elsewhere.
