We are regular visitors to the King Jason and have just completed our 32nd holiday since 1996.The King Jason is our "Second Home" and we are looking forward to our next holiday in October! That speaks for itself as to how we feel about the place. Each visit is like a Chapter in the story!
The superb and friendly staff is led by the ever present and totally irrepressible Andreas, supported by Maria Andreou on the restaurants and Maria Ainsley on reception - and a reliable friendly staff many of whom have been at the King Jason for quite a few years and now joined by a few new members who are friendly,helpful and welcoming!
We always look forward to the greetings from Andreas, the two Marias, the staff and the cats. It is great to arrive but such a wrench to leave but this soon passes as we know we will return again soon!
We have said before that this complex is an oasis of tranquility and a place to relax totally in the warm welcoming surroundings with a chance to recharge your batteries.
When we first arrived at the King Jason in September 1996 it stood very much alone except for the adjacent shop and some houses. Over the years we have witnessed the building of various structures around the King Jason steadily getting closer but as most of the apartments and studios overlook the central pool area then this really has not been a problem as this helps the feeling of seclusion. Last year the work on extending the complex commenced with the building of four accommodation blocks on an adjacent site. Three are complete and in use and the last is very near completion.
The apartments and studios - we have stayed in both over the years - are comfortable and well equipped including satellite TV. The apartments have had new bathrooms fitted along with updated kitchen facilities within the past 18 months ensuring the comfort of the guests.
The hotel facilities are good and cater for most visitors with a gym, steam room , sauna, indoor plunge pool and a mini market - which does freshly baked bread and beautiful muffins!. These facilities have been added to as part of the recent refurbishment with an outdoor hydro pool and accompanying sun terrace. The main dining area has been extended by enclosing the adjacent terrace restaurant to form two beautiful modern restaurants.
The dining in the King Jason is good value with a varied choice. The delights of the restaurants are worth trying especially as there are now theme nights e.g Cypriot, Italian etc.For those that want to dine out then there are some good restaurants within easy walking distance of the King Jason - and easy staggering back! Our favourite is "The Georgia" run by Chris and is very good! For a relaxing lunch there is the King Jason which we have sampled on a number of occasions but there is also "The Nest" on the sea front more or less opposite the Annabelle Hotel.
There is a cosmopolitan mixture of guests from the UK, Holland, Sweden, Germany and other places including Lithuania which enhances the friendly welcoming atmosphere of the King Jason.
We must mention the cats at the King Jason who are brilliant and one - Cleopatra - has been there since the complex opened. They are healthy and well looked after by the majority of the guests who love them and they are part of the attraction in us returning to the King Jason on a very regular basis. There are some cats from neighbouring properties who visit as they must have heard about the menu! The staff have always ensured that the cats stay out of the restaurant as much as possible so as to not disturb the diners but feline cunning sometimes prevails whereupon they are "escorted out"!
Andreas and his staff are without doubt an asset to the Louis Group and as such may we take this opportunity to wish him and his staff all the best and to keep up the tireless work in maintaining the popularity of the King Jason - without them the place would not be the same! They are one of the reasons we keep returning! See you again soon!
That is a secret! Try the King Jason and find out!
