“Absolutely amazing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

My partner and I stayed at the Louis King Jason in November 2013, he had booked for my birthday and as a last holiday before our baby arrives in February, we had checked many hotels and read loads of reviews and kept coming back to this one.
On arrival at night we were given a warm welcome with complimentary juice, the check in process was fab and we were advised if hungry dinner was still on and to pop down once settled. Having read from previous reviews about Maria and Andreas we knew immediately who they were as they mingled amongst their guests and offered assistance and immediately welcomed us both. We had booked self catering as thought we would like to go out for dinners etc but after having had dinner than night and realising how excellent the food was we decided to just pay as we went, breakfasts were amazing with so much choice and dinners were the same, nothing was too much trouble and all of the staff were attentive and helpful.
The pool areas are fantastic, really clean and tidy, plenty of comfy sunbeds and lovely wee cabanas.
There was no entertainment which suited us as we were going for complete relaxation and it was also out of season so any pubs and restaurants round about were closed but the peace and quiet and friendly atmosphere was exactly what we needed.
At the time I was 26 weeks pregnant and I was fussed over and looked after and hopefully we will be returning with the baby once he arrives.
We stayed in the deluxe studios and were blown away with the high standard of finishing and comfort as I hadn't been sleeping great and for the whole week I had the best nights sleep in the gigantic bed, there were lovely wee touches in the room like some commanderia and my partner had asked for a birthday cake to be left in the room for us on arrival which was absolutely delicious.
I have never left a review good or bad but felt that the service, welcome and hospitality we received along with the food and hotel itself deserved a moment of my time, many thanks to Maria and Andreas and all their staff for everything.

Room Tip: If you can, book a deluxe suite, well worth the extra pennies

Dear guest,

Thank you for spending your holiday at the King Jason.

It gives us great pleasure that our friendly staff was able to comfort you upon arrival. It is also to our great satisfaction that the rich variety and quality of our food contributed to your overall wellbeing in our hotel. We highly appreciate your acknowledgement concerning our attentiveness and outdoor facilities, especially the pool area; even though your period of travel was off season it created additional value in terms of quietness and relaxation and that is very satisfying. In addition to that it is to our great pleasure that the accommodation you chose offered not only the possibility for comfort but also good sleep.

We wish you an enjoyable and pleasant time with your newborn and would be delighted to once again welcome you back as a guest at the King Jason.

Yours respectfully,

The Management

I booked this hotel (King Jason) based on the reviews I read and I can honestly say that The hotel absolutely exceeded my expectations in terms of the hospitality and the presentation of the room and hotel overall. We were unfortunate to have bad weather in late December but we were comforted by the service we received from all of the staff and the deluxe apartment in which we stayed. I would definitely recommend this hotel to families and also make sure you travel when the weather is guaranteed as we were not able to utilise all the hotel facilities due to bad weather.
I must also add that Maria (receptionist) and Andreas (hotel manager) could not have been more warm or welcoming, they were the loveliest people you could wish to meet but I will also extend this to the rest of the staff whom we encountered on our stay.
I highly recommend this hotel for people who who want to be surrounded by a totally satisfying base whilst they are on holiday!

We stayed here for 10 days with our daughter, son in law and two grandchildren, (12 &10), over Christmas, and had no real idea of what to expect,,apart from Trip Advisor reviews. Our deluxe studio apartment was excellent, I loved the walk in shower. Food was very varied, different theme each night, with the Christmas Eve buffet a stand out, and a huge choice for breakfast and dinner. The whole hotel is extremely comfortable, kept spotlessly clean by a very willing and friendly staff, and has a good central location, not far from the front, and even closer to the swish Kings Avenue Mall.
The real stars however are the General Manager Andreas, and the two Marias, the Maitre D' and the Receptionist. It is impossible to overstate the difference they made to our holiday. Nothing was ever too much trouble. My wife requires gluten free meals and their meticulous and caring approach was impressive. The overall standard of service at meals was truly excellent, and such a standard does not come without the clear dedication of the whole team, led so single-mindedly by Andreas - he is a real star, and so nice with it.
We will be back, for sure.

The hotel exudes warmth and hospitality. From the moment we arrived late X mas eve the staff could not do enough for us.
The 1 bedroomed apartments were modern, clean and spacious. The choice of food at mealtimes would suit even the fussiest of eaters, from simple pasta to more fancy
Cypriot speciality dishes.
Don't let the residential location fool you. The harbour was within walking distance as were the shops and cafes. Outdoor pool was very chilly in December but indoor pool perfect. Would not hesitate in returning one day.

Thank you to everyone who made our holiday special.SMALL ELEGANT HOTEL is the name and that is what you got. Food was fantastic, don't know what is going on with these people on here saying its not. Yes it is served buffet style but they will cook to order anything you ask for. Different theme every evening so plenty of choice. We ate here three evenings and ever morning for breakfast and always had something different. If you dont see what you want just ask. We ate out at the harbour 4 nights and Honorus which is the oldest Taverna in Paphos since 1953 had great Food. Theo's also great food, Bar Mare great food and great views.The New Kings Mall up the road for shopping but do not expect it to be on our scale just like a little shopping mall not even as big as Brent Cross with food stores and cinema on top. Rooms cleaned and sheets towels changed ever day. Hydro pool fantastic but too cold to go in will be amazing in the hotter weather. We could not fault this place, from being picked up in the evening to go to being taken back to airport. Relaxed and definitely less stressed upon our return. Well done Andrea and the team, it is you that make this hotel what it is.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the right of the reception they get more sun. Not really suitable for families with...

This hotel is fabulous. The rooms are clean, well kept, and beautifully decorated. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly. We had breakfast at the hotel one morning and there was a wonderful variety of tasty items. My husband and I stayed two nights and we will definitely stay there again! Very close to the harbor, restaurants, and mall. We drove most places but we could have walked.

Dear guest,

Thank you for holidaying at the King Jason.

Many thanks also for the lovely review which speaks so fondly of our property. We are very happy that you pay special attention to something which is not mentioned so often here, our ultra-comfy beds...we went through a long process of research to find the perfect matresses and must admit to being happy with their performance. It's also nice of you to mention the huge mall which has just opened nearby, and which we feel will upgrade the area around our King Jason.

Happy New Year to you and we cannot wait to welcome you back.

We went to the King Jason for the first time three years ago by chance, when it was recommended by our local travel agents for a late package deal. Three years on, we've ditched the 'package' bit and book direct each year for a week of relaxation and a bit of an adventure. It says a lot that we bump into other 'returnees' each year - it seems we just can't stay away!

As other reviews say, the staff are what make this place - Maria, Maria and Andreas are... well they are friends! Out of all the things I look forward to each time we go, seeing them is definitely the thing I look forward to the most.

The rooms as always are spotless and very comfortable, the food is great (we go B&B and the breakfasts are excellent), and it was lovely to see some of the feline regulars again (Hi Charlie!). The King Jason will look after you really well - I would recommend it highly to anyone.
