What can I say about the King Jason that has not already been said in other reviews? We stayed there for 2 weeks Jan/Feb and was greeted by Andreas, it was as if time stayed still!! We first stayed there 12 years previously and the greeting was the same, the people were the same and so were the cats(well maybe not the same cats). Nothing had changed after all these years. Standards had not dropped and Andreas, Maria etc were still wonderfully attentive to everyone.
I don't know their names but anyone who have been there will know who I mean, the gentleman who always wore a cream jacket at reception was amazing and arranged a hire car for us and the car was with us within the hour (unlike Thomson's rep who couldn't get us a car till the Saturday....this was Thursday NOT IMPRESSED). The car was a better price than Thomsons and was excellent, no fault to be found at all. The fields in and around Paphos are full of hire cars waiting to be hired, come on Thomsons!!! Sorry back to KJ....The bar staff were also great and always had a smile when you walked in, nothing was too much trouble for them but I do agree it was a little pricey. We didn't try the restaurant but that is because my husband is difficult to feed lol but it was not held against us for not eating there. We spent a good deal of the time in small tavernas in a little village outside of Paphos called Mandria where the food was much cheaper than in town and really really excellent. Must mention the Keg and and Barrel pub just off bar street great for all your rugby games and they now do a limited food menu. Well done Pana and Theo for the warm welcome as ever.
Would I go back to KJ? You bet I would in a heart beat. I do hope that Andreas or any of his staff look at the reviews because they are a testament to all their hard work, even thought they make it look effortless and that they are genuine in their need for you to have a good time. The little gifts they left in our room, bottle wine 1st night, Champagne 2nd night and honey on departure was so appreciated. Well done to the Louis hotel chain, you have a little gem in this hotel and staff, cheers to you all.
