Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights, as per other reviews, nice rooms, lovely food with very attentive management and staff. Only negative is it is located a fair distance from the harbour and amenities etc, and there is no entertainment at all in the hotel, which can lead to boredom. Ideal for a restful week for adults.

Room Tip: Room 41 is a 1 bed apartment ideally situated for bar, reception and pool

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for your feedback following a stay at the King Jason.

It is a pleasure to hear that you liked your stay with us, especially the accommodation and cuisine. As for

animation, The King Jason is a hotel meant for relaxing holidays and will not comtemplate adding

entertainment to its repertoire; it is thus advisable for those guests who prefer a more active stay to visit

other Louis Hotels in the area like Louis Phaethon or Louis Ledra.

We look forward to your next visit to the King Jason or one of our many other Louis Hotels.

Sincerely yours,

The Management.

We love this hotel because of the friendly helpful staff and the high level of cleanliness in all areas of the hotel. Everything is always spotless.The hotel is of a very high standard due to the dedication of Andreas the manager and his staff. It is in a nice quiet location within walking distance to the front and the old town.
The food in the hotel is excellent and of a very high standard catering for everyone's needs and requirements. I read a review where a guest commented about the food not being suitable for a gluten free diet there is always fresh meat,fish,fruit, vegetables, potatoes rice etc all of which are suitable.
It's nice getting your drinks brought to you at the pool and the wet clothes are very welcome in the heat of the day.
It is a lovely place to relax, unwind and recharge the batteries in the company of lovely people who pamper to your every need.
Can't wait to come back very soon it is like our second home.

We’re a couple in our early 30s and returned on 2nd October from a 1 week, all inclusive stay at the King Jason. No need for a really long review as the positive 4* and 5* reviewers have already said most.

A few comments I think might be relevant:

It is clear from the majority of the 800+ reviews that this is a relatively small, quiet hotel in a residential area and that does not provide entertainment. If you’ve read Trip Advisor and you end up in the King Jason and this isn’t what you were looking for then you really do only have yourselves to blame... This suited us perfectly.

Our room, in new block C was modern, clean, well equipped, had large, comfy beds and a well stocked kitchenette. Pool towels were also included there. Not much on the TV but there was a DVD player. We didn’t use it anyway really. The air conditioning was also good and not overly noisy. We would recommend upgrading to the new rooms if possible. We chose to pay the €3.50/day safe charge, as we did in Limmassol last year and Gran Canaria the year before that. Free would obviously be great but it’s uncommon in our experience.

Pool side was clean and tidy (certainly we did not see any bird dirt on the sun beds), and we spent our time by the Hydro pool which was really great to relax in. There was plenty of space around both pools for sunbathing.

All inclusive food was excellent, the quality is much better than previous AI hotels we’ve stayed in and the staff service was even better. The AI drinks list was not as comprehensive as some hotels but there is still beer, good quality wines, local spirits/mixers, a selection of cocktails/mocktails, milkshakes and teas/coffee/etc. These are not watered down – just try a vodka sprite and it’ll be apparent in seconds!

The gym could do with an upgrade but there is now air conditioning in there and there is a selection of running machines/steppers/cross-trainers and a weights machine. It could probably do with more free weights to accompany the weights bench though.

The closest local bars are just 5 minutes walk away, ‘Bar Street’ (which is all drinks promotions and shots) is about 10 minutes walk away and the harbour restaurants and bars are 15+ minutes walk away. We went out after dinner 4 nights to see a bit of the area and a round of 2 drinks was typically €5-7. When we stayed in the hotel bar is quiet but the drinks flowed. There isn’t an outside seating area for the evening but I believe that this is being renovated over Winter. From the hotel you can also easily walk to the shopping centre/markets in Paphos town.

Andreas and team should be commended for their hard work and great hotel and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing week away from the grind.

Room Tip: If you can get the new block then I'd recommend it.

The hotel is situated in a quite neighbourhood, not far from the centre and the sea, furniture in the room was nice and brand new.
There is a common swimming pool which helas is poorly maintained, not clean at all in fact I could see cats roaming around it and the sunbeds there were almost always dirty with birds excrements.

Even though the price was reasonable, but it did not include breakfast, Wi-Fi in the room (10€ for 3 hours). Even the use of the safe was on option at 3.5€/day!!! Parking was included in the price, but it could only host about 6 cars whilst the premise has more than 20 rooms, maybe even double.

During our stay we were woken up every morning between 7 and 7:45 by a very unpleasant, unidentified noise, similar to an engine or a pump. We immediately informed the receptionist about it; the second day the manager came in our room and acknowledged the noise, but unfortunately the problem was not solved during our stay.
The shower door had been wrongly installed (it opened outside instead of opening inside the shower cabin); it's strange that this had not been spotted before (O_o) Hence, for the first two days every time we took a shower there was plenty of water falling outside the shower cabin. After two days, the shower door was reinstalled properly, but it was not water-proof anyway, as some water still leaked every time we took a shower. We informed the manager and the receptionist about it, but again the problem was not solved.
I had absolutely no assistance on gluten-free products. I wrote to the hotel well before our arrival to ask for gluten-free food for breakfast. Since we did not receive any reply, a few days after we called to reiterate our request to make sure that the hotel was aware of it. But when we arrived, the manager informed us that no gluten-free products were available; the explanation provided (difficulty to buy those products in Cyprus) was actually groundless, as our experience in other hotels in Cyprus shows that it's not true.
In exchange of our 'little inconveniences', we got a small discount on the price for breakfast.

Not a lot to do in this review other than endorse all of the other excellent ones. Went as a couple to celebrate 20th wedding anniversary, without the kids. Chose the King Jason based on trip adviser and price/flights. Could not have made a better choice - thank you to all who added such informative reviews previously.

From moment of arrival to the moment you leave you are looked after! You feel safe and that if anything was to go wrong, it would be taken care of. We were met at reception by the manager, Andreas and then offered cold juices and cookies before being escorted to our room with our luggage. We arrived just in time for evening meal and as soon as we set foot back down at the restaurant we knew we were in the right place. Neither of us are very good at speaking to strangers and are a bit shy in new places etc. No problem here. Andreas walked over when he saw us enter and explained how the restaurant worked, how were seated - everything. From then on, either Andreas or the lovely Maria were around the restauarant at every mealtime, speaking to people, helping with any questions you had, explaining the menu/ingredients etc etc. The menus change each night to a different theme. Cypriat, Greek, Italian nights may not be to everyones taste, including mine - until you visit here! I had seconds at every one thanks to the subtlety of the flavours, the descriptions given by Andreas and the chefs if you just ask. The option to have fresh/plain cuts of meat cooked for you is there. All foods were of high quality and quite possibly the best we have had over many visits to all inclusives - always hot and plentiful. No standard "kids" type menu so fussy kids may struggle. Desserts!!!! - bitesize delights and larger sliced offerings. far too good, too many too choose from - so had to try all and far too many eaten.

Away from the food, we wanted a peaceful relaxing mostly adult orientated setting - we got it in bucketfuls. The apartment was one of the older ones but very well refurbished (a/c - excellent, very cold if needed with no sore throats etc!!?, very bright, very comfotable and very spacious - no complaints, fridge, kettle, microwave, cooker, tv with a few channels and a DVD player). The main pool area looked good, well kept etc, but we spent every day relaxing around the corner by the Hydro contact pool - sun all day, bar service, cool towels and cakes brought round. Why move?

Yes, the hotel is in a residential area and has no evening entertainment. This is a good thing. You get a nice relaxed day enjoying the sun and the hospitality and then in the evening you can wander down to the port for a look around or you can sit back in the lounge area, have a few cocktails and meet some new people. The hotel I think markets on this basis and it should continue to do so. I would say it is more set up for adults/couples than younger groups and kids. If this is intentional then they are doing a good job and should keep it this way.

Back to the service! I can only describe our whole experience at the King Jason as "special". Never felt so relaxed or at home as we did here. I can only describe it as like spending a week away at your favourite aunts house in the country where everything is great and away from it all - the kind of thing you see in films and read about in books.

Finally, to Andreas and Maria (and every single member of staff - I apologise for not taking a note of your names - especially our "friends" in the restaurant), you are a credit to the hotel, the resort, the island. I cannot thank you enough for how you treated us and looked after us. As you said Maria, from the moment we walked through the doors we belonged to you. The Louis chain should be proud to have you and should consider sending you out to as many hotels as possible to show them how it should be done.

PS. Andreas - we'll take as many 1 - 0 (D. Sturridge) to Liverpool as we can get.

VISIT HERE!!!!

Having read all the reviews about this Hotel, we knew it was going to be good and it was! It far surpassed our expectations from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, the apartment was large, as was the bed 6' x 6'. There was sandwiches in the fridge for us on arrival, most welcome as we arrived after midnight! and some sherry to drink too!

The two pools were clean and not busy at all, plenty of sunbeds too, including double sunbeds for those who can't bear to be apart. The Hydro pool has a jacuzzi, water jet and spa seat to relax and have a wonderful massage too.

The food and staff were the best we have ever experienced, they wanted to get to know you and what you like, after a day or so they knew what we wanted and told us about the meals that day too. The selection at all meals (Buffet style) ) was exceptional - theme nights helped a lot and gave us something to look forward too and if that was not enough, the snack menu was extensive and the portions were huge!

The service was fantastic and all the waiters, managers (who are incredible) and Chefs were plainly there to please and would prepare food to order if you wanted it.

The facilities, the peace and quiet and relaxed atmosphere is exactly what you want on holiday and that is what you get.

A memorable holiday, probably the best holiday we have had, and one we would certainly recommend - could not fault it it any way!

Room Tip: Higher floors are best, they have been recently refitted and provide a great view and you get to see...
