We (wife and 16 year old, 19 year old, and Mum-in-law) stayed here for the half-term break. Hotel was nice but rooms were a little tired and if you don't get a sea view it's not a pleasant view on the other side facing baron land and the road. We were disappointed with the location; it's possible to walk to Paphos but it's close to 2 hours. Service and hotel as a whole was very good, although I'd recommend not using their preferred car hire company - we ended up with an old banger which was the source of much family humour :-)
There wasn't much to do for the two teens who are passed playing in the pool or on the beach (not there there was much of a beach but it was a nice clear sea). Entertaining Teens is an issue wherever you go (except snowboarding in the case of our two - not as much of that in Cyprus as you may think :-))
There were some reasonable restaurants near the hotel but not many and the bars weren't ideal.
It was touted as a Golf Resort but the nearest course was 40mins away - an okay (and not too busy) course but not cheap at 60euros around.
On our walk to Paphos we passed the Elysium Hotel which looked as nice, if not nicer than the St George and considerably closer - within good walking distance, if we had to go back we'd stay at the Elysium.
There's a limited to see in the Paphos areas, the main one being the "Tomb of the Kings" which, on entry, immediately advises you that "there were no royals burried here, possibly some rich people..." - so Tomb of NOT the Kings" - it turned out to be a few excavated holes one or two of which had columns in them - hardly Egypt!
Overall we were disappointed with Paphos/Cyprus and whilst other parts of Cyprus may be better I suspect not - suffice to say we won't be returning.
