“Great relaxing hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

1st week of april for a relaxing weekend - could not ask for better. Hard to choose a good hotel with a wide selection. We decided on the Annabelle, because of the location and the good reviews. We were not disappointed. The pool area is great, with good views over paphos. The breakfast had a wide selection aswell. The service was top notch, always around to help. Any negative points .......... im having to be picky ; internet was a bit slow and amoresa restaurant, was a bit expensive, but the food was of good quality and good wine list aswell.

Room Tip: We had room 404 with sea view was great. I would always take the sea view as some of the garden view...

My husband and I were celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary in March and as it was our first time in Cyprus we had an open mind. The Annabelle ticked all the boxes, we had a superb balcony room overlooking the ocean, the location was ideal and the sunsets were memorable. All the staff were extremely friendly, polite and nothing was too much trouble, especially Cristabelle who booked us in and welcomed us to the hotel and made us feel one of the family. Agatha is a total asset to the reception area and provided us with excellent local information and always greeted us with a cheerful smile.
Strolling along the Harbour was our daily entertainment stopping off for delicious fresh fish lunches which sometimes extended well into the afternoon, as there was so much happening in the harbour area.
We managed a trip to Limassol on the bus, which was so easy and we saw another part of the beautiful Island.
We would definitely return and have recommended The Annabelle and Cyprus to our friends.

Room Tip: Our Room was a deluxe Balcony Ocean view and was superb.

Dear Guest,

congratulations to your Silver Wedding Anniversary!

It was a pleasure welcoming you at Annabelle and we would like to thank you for recommending us on TripAdvisor.

Our Deluxe Sea Facing rooms are certainly one of the best accommodation options in the hotel, because of their space and views. We are happy that you have enjoyed it so much.

Paphos is beautiful and less crwded this time of the year, making it ideal for a romantic, sunny getaway. We are honoured that you chose to stay with us on this special occasion and hope to see you back soon.

Please rest assured that all your lovely comments have been passed to our team.

Best regards,
Annabelle Management

Myself and my mother has just came back on the 14th March 2012 after a week. We had a fantastic holiday, we had a sea view room which was spacious and comfortable with stunning views right across to the Harbour. Although the main buffet was closed in the evenings we were given fine dining in its place four courses of absolute heaven. All the staff from the cleaners to management were amazing and make your holiday something special cannot thank them enough. It is a short stroll to the shops and the harbour. would recommend this hotel to all ages. There are several pool areas and a lagoon everything is kept spotless and beautiful, lots of sunbeds and umberellas. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: There are several types of rooms they have terrace sea view on one side and terrace garden view on t...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to welcome you and your mother to Annabelle this year.

It is very rewarding for us to know that our guests have enjoyed our hospitality. We are so grateful that you took advantage of our special offer for this year, so that you can enjoy dining with us every night complimentary. Whenever the numbers allow us, we offer this in Amorosa, rather then the buffet at Fontana, and we are delighted to hear that you have liked it so much.

March, like November, enjoy beautiful weather with temperatures reaching 23 degrees Celsius and mostly sunny days.

We would like to thank you for recommending us so boldly on TripAdvisor and hope to welcome you back to Annabelle very soon.

Best regards,
Annabelle Management

We stayed at this hotel for the Cyprus Bank Holiday weekend.
The hotel is situated right in the heart of the Paphos tourist area so the location was spot on. The area is very quiet at this time of the year which was great as we could take a nice walk on the beachfront as the weather was warm and sunny.
The hotel itself is very well maintained and the staff is efficient and helpful. The room was spacious and had a sea view. With regards to the meals, we used the hotel´s room service to order lunch (club sandwich and a burger at €34) which were nicely cooked and delicious. At night we went to the hotel´s restaurant which was basically empty (2 – 3 tables were occupied) and had their Italian cuisine buffet which was ok. Cost €60 for 2 persons. Breakfast had plenty of options available, hot and cold.
The hotel also offers free wifi and gated parking available.
Now , with regards to the pricing, I think the hotel´s management should re-evaluate their pricing policy especially regarding the room mini bars. A small bottle of water at €4 is absolutely ridiculous and not guest friendly. I understand that is a five star hotel but surely its profit will not hit sky high with €4 bottles of water.
Overall a nice hotel, and I m sure it will be great to stay there during summer.

September 2011 was our third visit to the Annabelle hotel, and wont be the last. It is tempting to say everything was perfect and we had no complaints, and upon leaving after each visit that was exactly how we felt - it had been a perfect holiday. However, in the real world some things do go wrong and the strength of the Annabelle lies with its staff and both their ability and willingness to correct problems. No time wasted persuading the staff there was a problem, they accepted your word and set about resolving the issue. From the manager to the cleaning staff was this belief that service and friendliness is important - and it is.

The hotel itself is not modern, more a mixture of old style comfort and present day convenience. Rooms of course can vary but all are comfortable and should not give cause for complaint. The food is excellent and if you can get a half board offer we would recommend you go for it. There are many other restaurants in Paphos but the standard at the Annabelle matches them all.

Would we recommend the Annabelle, and why? The answer is Yes, because we have come to know and trust (and like) the management and the staff.

Dear Guest,

thank you for your kind words here on TripAdvisor and more so for staying with us last September.
Since then Annabelle has further upgraded, by refurnishing completely our lobby, redesigning the Byzantine bar, introducing a reading area at the Atrium and refreshing our bedrooms.

Saying that you had a "perfect holiday" with us, is the most rewarding compliment. We do see our guests as part of the Annabelle family and love seeing them return. Therefore, please accept our gratitude for your recommendation, and we hope to be able to welcome you back very soon.

Best regards,
Annabelle Management

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for returning to Annabelle and even more for recommending us on TripAdvisor.

Here at Annabelle we feel that our guests are part of our family and we are lucky to see many returning again year after year. It is the most rewarding feeling for us and we honestly feel like we are seeing olf friends.

As the children grow up, we hope to see you again soon. You will also notice the areas that we have upgraded this year. Obviously our fully refurnished lobby, the new reading area at the Atrium, the updated Byzantine bar and of course the bedrooms.

Hoping to see you back at Annabelle this year.

Best regards,
Annabelle Management
