“Lovely Holiday in Paphos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel, on an all-inclusive basis.
The hotel was superb, although there were a couple of things we were disappointed in.
The room was not cleaned to a high enough standard for us. There was a piece of rubbish behind the bathroom door when we arrived, and this was not swept until the day before be departed. On some days the bathroom also wasn't cleaned and the kitchen floor was not washed at all in the time we stayed (there was a mark on the floor from arrival until departure). The mattress on the beds was very good and comfortable and the balcony was really sunny late afternoon/early evening.
The food at the hotel was of an excellent standard, but like any all-inclusive holidays it does get a bit repetitive on the second week, but still lovely. The breakfast egg options were delicious and cooked to order. The drinks in the all-inclusive package (spirits) were not to my liking, and the premium drinks were very expensive, however, the wine and beer were good!! The all-inclusive package was not fully explained (perhaps a Thomson issue?), and it was only on our second last day we realised that you could get ice-cream cones from the bar. There are also snacks put out in the dining area mid afternoon which, unless you happen to notice them, you wouldn’t know were there.
The poolside area was lovely and the sun loungers very comfortable. The infinity pool was very relaxing too. The one complaint I would have is that people were smoking at the poolside, which I found uncomfortable, especially when one of the pool rules was "No smoking at the poolside" - nothing was done to enforce this.
The lounge area was comfortable, however, it would have been better if the air con had been put on in the evening as it was very warm, and the only lounge area with fresh air was for smokers!!
The staff at the hotel were all friendly and helpful. In particular Andreas, Maria, Shargu and Jahmeine. They would do anything to help and the lovely arrival and departure gifts were a nice touch. Andreas and Maria run the hotel in a very professional and friendly manner, and deal with any issues/complaints you may have efficiently.
There is little entertainment at the hotel (a singer on a Friday night), but the harbour is only a 20 minute stroll away with lots of bars and restaurants. The local bus service is excellent and only 3 euros for a day pass per person.
Thanks to everyone at the hotel (including the lovely people we met) for a wonderful holiday. If we ever visit Paphos again we would certainly consider this hotel.

Dear guest,

Thank you for visiting the King Jason and for sharing your views with the online community.

It is pleasing to hear your appreciation of our comfortable beds, our delicious food, our 'all-included' beer/wine, and of course our hydro contact pool. We take it as an immense honour that you speak so highly of our wonderful staff, yet we only wish you had informed them of some slight issues faced during your stay. They would have been especially happy to pay extra attention to your room cleaning however do rest assured that your comment is being taken seriously for our improvement. Our Executive Housekeeper has been informed of your complaint and is sending her apologies, as do we.

We understand that a weekly menu may feel repetitive in the second part of your holiday but at the King Jason our prime focus is on quality rather than quantity (unlike most All Inclusive packages worldwide). We feel that by having a 14-day rotation of our menus would be detrimental to our food quality and we are not even considering taking the risk. As for the spirits, it is common knowledge that local ones are included in an All Inclusive package, and premium ones are payable extra.

Regarding entertainment, please understand that we are unwilling to offer more than one night per week in order to maintain the serenity of our property; 90% of All Inclusive hotels are loud and busy and we want to differentiate our hotel from them. Finally, please accept our apologies for the lack of adequate infromation regarding the All Inclusive package; it is something we definitely need to work on in the future.

Thanks again for visiting our King Jason and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to our property in the near future.

Regards,

The Management.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights and we had such lovely time. We were very kindly upgraded to one of the new Deluxe Studio which was gorgeous - amazing rainfall shower and sink area with a little kitchen and TV/DVD player. There was also a Tassimo machine but unfortuantely no coffee pods to go with it :(! As previously mentioned, there aren't that many channels so for the nights we spent in we brought some DVDs with us to watch. They do have some to rent at reception as dinner does finish fairly early at 8pm so having a drink and watching a film can be a nice way to end off a day in the sun!

We were All Inclusive and haven't always had the best experience with the food but the King Jason was fantastic on this front. Lots of variety (different themes each night) and plenty of fresh salad and fruit etc. Breakfast was especially nice with made to order omelettes as well! One tiny thing I would mention is that it may be a good idea to put bottled water in the fridge for new guests arriving as we arrived at around 1am after a delayed flight and we had no water left from the airport and weren't able to drink until the next morning which was a bit of a pain as I was really thirsty and needed to take some tablets!

The pool areas were lovely. We spent most of our time in the hydro pool which was great. Big enough to have a swim in but also with added extras of the jacuzzis and exercise equipment! Extra touches like bringing out cooling towels and shots of watermelon and lime/mint were much appreciated in the heat and really demonstrate the excellent service at the King Jason.

It is in a residential area so you can hear the traffic etc outside but most sound is cleverly blocked out by the many water features in the pool and dining area! The harbour area/markets are within walking distance so the location is very convenient. Also lots of supermarkets near by.

The staff at the King Jason deserve a medal - they work tirelessly for their guests! I would highly recommend King Jason to anyone looking for a relaxed and laid back holiday with excellent food and staff!

Many thanks to all the team at King Jason for making our holiday great!

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for your lovely comments following a stay with us at the King Jason.

We are overjoyed to hear that our hotel lived up to its high reputation by catering to you with our high standard of service that is centred around attention to detail. It is a thrill to hear that you enjoyed the location of our hotel by making use of its close proximity to the nearby harbour and shops. We are delighted that you enjoyed staying in our new Deluxe Studio, with a design and comfort that speaks for itself. Regarding your suggestions about the coffee cups and keeping water in the fridge upon arrival, we would like to thank you for bringing these points to our attention as we strive for constant improvement. However we do want to inform you that coffee tablets are sold separately at our supermarket. Furthermore, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our cuisine and are delighted to read that even though you have not had the best experience with All Inclusive packages until now, our offer exceeded your expectations in every term. Most of all, it is a great pleasure to read about your high regard for all of our members of staff that so tirelessly delivered excellent service with the sole aim of creating a memorable holiday experience for you.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the King Jason soon again.

Best regards,

My daughter and I returned from a weeks stay at The King Jason on Sunday.It certainly lived up to it's reputation. I was very sceptical about staying all-inclusive but the food was excellent as was the local beer, wine and cocktails. Andreas and his wonderful staff particularly Ahmed and Shargu could not have done any more for us and nothing ever seemed to be a bother. I'm sure this hotel will remain the number one hotel in Pafos as I have stayed in many hotels in Europe and America and have not experienced the personal touches that I did at this hotel.

I booked this because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. When I had booked it was 3rd best hotel in Paphos and after a few months from booking it shot up to first so we were delighted to hear that. It definitely lived up to its reputation for having wonderful staff and Andreas and Maria are a fabulous team. The atmosphere amongst staff was great and they all were very pleasant and respectful to their guests. You could tell it was an excellent run team by its management. Being a manager I know how important this is for the prosperity of the company. Nothing was never any trouble and as my son was on a healthy eating diet he asked for a banana one day and this was brought to him every day without him even asking for it. Even although this wasn't on the buffet breakfast. Thank you Maria for organising this.

The hotel was spotless and the food excellent. We have been to many 5 star hotels and this was up with the best of them. Fresh cooking in abundance. Beautiful restaurant. Only a wee gripe, it was quite hot at times if you couldn't get outside to eat. You needed to be there quite early to get a seat outside, however, we did manage some of the time with Andreas being so kind in finding us a table. If there was anything to improve on this it would be to increase the eating times at the restaurant to a bit later, perhaps to 9pm rather than the last seating to be 8pm.

There were many cats at the hotel but they were well behaved and if you are not a fan of cats the staff will make sure that you are not annoyed with them. They sometimes came into the restaurant at night and because some people encourage them with food it is not their fault that they come in.

We frequented the Hydro Pool every day which was always lovely and very clean. A pleasure to go in to and having the exercise bike in the pool helped burn off the calories. Loved it. There was never any bother getting sunbeds. Plenty to go around and all the people seemed very friendly. Plenty of room all around the hotel. There is an indoor pool and spa but we didn't bother going to this because it was lovely weather and didn't want to waste it by being inside. I understand that there is a charge for some of the facilities indoors.

If you are looking for night time entertainment then this isn't the hotel for you as it is rather quiet but there was some entertainment a couple of nights we were there but as it was too hot to sit in the hotel we went to Kato Paphos. A leisurely stroll that takes about 15 minutes. Lovely restaurants, harbour and shops.

Our rooms were lovely. Ample for what you need with a fully equipped kitchen if you wanted to make something and eat it out on the balcony. Beds a bit hard but as they were new I understand why this is. Balconies a bit small but ample for what you need. We e mailed the hotel prior to going and asked for a room that had a lot of sun and was on the top floor and Andreas sent a reply saying that he would couldn't promise but would try his best and he did. He provided everything that we asked for. We had room 59 which had sun from very early afternoon until it went down. Great. Although not for the infirm because of the stairs.

Bar prices were reasonable and a lovely shop inside the hotel that makes fresh bread throughout the day. Again prices very reasonable for a hotel.

We left to finish our holiday for a week in a villa in Tala. We had a nice mix to our holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. We would definitely visit again and Louis King Jason you definitely deserve to be No 1 hotel in Paphos.

Room Tip: Room 59 was in an excellent location if you like the sun.

Just back from the Louis King Jason, stayed 5th to 12th June 2013. First time visitors to Cyprus. Stayed Half board, great choice of food for all meals, easy to change dinner to lunch if you prefer. dinners are usually themed but good selection for all. Pool areas had plenty of sunbeds, we never reserved any before we needed to use them and there were always plenty available even after lunch. Only 15-20 minutes walk from the harbour area with a wide variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. Lots of activities in and around Paphos to choose from. All the staff were very welcoming and efficient led from the front by Andreas and Maria.

I was very impressed with the high standards of customer service which the hotel offer. The rooms were of a good standard . I found the pool area to be very attractive including various areas in which you can sunbathe , 4 different pools including one for children and one hydro contact pool and area which included the jacuzzi and other water features for relaxation . I would most definitely return to this hotel and recommend to others.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool appeared to catch the sun and have more attractive balcony areas
