“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Arrived on a touring holiday for 4 days and we were not dissapointed. We had a one bedroom appartment that was spacious and well appointed but unfortunately not the best view in the complex! All facilities are very modern and much better than average. Make sure that you ask for a pool view room
There are 3 pools, one indoors and 2 outdoors. We never had any problem getting a sunbed at any time. One of the pools is a hydro contact pool with a variety of hydro jet features which were excellent and unique in our experience.
Service at the hotel was excellent and polite in all areas, ably led by the general manager (sorry, forgot his name) who went out of his way to talk to everyone and make the welcome.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and was first class, including an egg chef who cooked to order.
Location of the hotel is in a quiet position on the edge of Kato Paphos and is a 20 minute walk to the sea front but a bar and restaurant area is much closer.
Even at the best of establishments there are a couple of negatives:
Good television in the room but we could get only 4 channels - 3 in Greek plus that awful Euronews channel.
Air conditioning was very effective and available 24/7 but very noisy at night.
But overall I would recommend this hotel.

Just returned from 10 days at the King Jason and have to agree with all the great reviews I read before I went, we were welcomed with a nice glass of orange juice and friendly, helpful staff, was a little disappointed with my terrace at first as it overlooked some garages but have to say it grew on me as hardly anyone walked past so it made it a nice quiet place to read my book, (and to be fair to management I am sure they would have swapped my room if I had asked) nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the little extras were welcomed round the pool.The new hydro pool was fantastic, the best pool i have ever had whilst on holiday. If you are coming to Cyprus then definately come to the King Jason it is a lovely hotel with lovely staff.
The walk to the bars/restaurnants and harbour was about 15 minutes walk but really not too bad, and there are plenty to choose from.

A very enjoyable stay. I was made to feel very comfortable and the staff were very polite. I was especially impressed by the helpfulness of Maria from the reception desk. Her resourcefulness and local knowledge made an otherwise routine business trip an extremely interesting experience. I also liked to see that Andreas the manager was very hands-on and eager to help. I can definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paphos.

On arrival to the hotel it does not look to inviting, however once past the entrance the hotel has very nice pleasant surroundings, we were greeted at the front desk politely and offered a small drink whilst we signed into the hotel and then shown to our room from awal. the hotel was offfered as 4 star and it is not four maybe 3 however the beds are very comfortable and brand new, the bathroom also refurbished very nice, maybe the kitchen area will be redone for us when we go back, the air conditioning works well but a bit noisy, you will be charged for internet access which i think in todays market should be free, ok my gripes out of the way.
This hotel is doing what all other hotels should be doing in terms of customer service, and as well as that they serve up an excellent array of foods that for the first time on a holiday I have been able to eat, 2 nights a week they are serviing a la carte food not only that they almost do it evry night the food is that good, pik what you want eat it and they will do the rest the table service is amazing, well done to Andreas the manager, you will know who he is he will be there evry day at some point to say hello to awal shotol angela and monica and to all the other staff who made this a four star hotel,the pool is the warmest pool i have ever been in ok its only 1.4m deep and we must have had near 40degrees heat each day wow it was hot, the new hydro pool great too free towels for the pool also, evry day this hotel delivers small frozen face cloths to evryone at the pool. evry day small shots of melon juice, lime juice and rice pudding never had any of that before, they do all this and very polite with it, if you have a problem speak to Andreas if he cant sort it he will explain why, if you want to go to paphos this is the hotel you should stay at dont argue just go see for yourelf.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for staying at the King Jason and for leaving a charming review online.

We are truly delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay here and that you admired the pleasant surroundings, the friendly welcome given to you by our nice staff, as well as the very comfortable and brand new room including bathroom. Thank you for highly praising the customer service at our hotel and for complimenting our food served at the restaurant. Rest assured that your warm words will be redirected to the ones concerned. It is nice to see that you enjoyed the special touches around the pool and are grateful to you for favorably recommending the King Jason. Nevertheless, we regret hearing that you did not find our hotel too inviting upon your arrival, but are glad that your first impression was promptly changed to a positive one. We were truly sad and devastated at your claims that our hotel is not a four star, when you yourself mentioned how much attention to detail we are paying, at dinner, around the pool, upon arrival etc. Allow us to politely disagree with you on this one, especially since our 34 new studios are approaching completion soon...they will be ultra modern with state of the art A/Cs. In addition, we do not believe that ANY 3-star establishment would offer the room comfort, customer service, quality of food and free use of the hydro pool that we do.

It was our pleasure accommodating you at the King Jason and look forward to seeing you back for another pleasant stay!

Kind regards

The Management

Well what can i add to to the already glowing reviews of the King Jason......Firstly the recent refurbishment has taken it beyond its already fantastic level! Run by the amazing Andreas nothing is to much trouble. The new Hydro pool is a great addition and my dodgy back now feels like new after 4 days relaxation in the pool! Do try the local drink "brandy sour" good value and beautifuly presented by the bar staff. We didnt eat in the restaurant/bar but did see others enjoying very nice excellent food. So if your looking for a slice of luxury at a reasonable price... look no further than the King Jason!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms you can walk straight out to the pool from the patio.

Dear loyal guest,

On behalf of the King Jason we would like to show you our gratitude by thanking you for choosing our hotel and sharing your positive experience with us.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you especially admired the fantastic results that have shown after the recent refurbishments, such as the new hydro pool, making your back feel like new. Thank you for praising our excellent staff including the management and for recommending our tasty drinks, well presented by our professional bar staffs. We are sad to hear that you did not try our delicious cuisine and hopefully you will give it a try on your next holiday back at the King Jason, because we do not want you to miss out on our good value for money half-board package for lunch and dinner, as well as the set menu dinner twice a week.

We are grateful to you for considering us a slice of luxury at a reasonable price and for recommending the King Jason in general. We are looking forward to your return visit!

Yours sincerely
