“Under priced and underdone, yet has potential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Very new, only open three weeks or so and it shows – very much. Well as a resort complex it is actually nowhere near finished, perhaps in this economic climate there is pressure on all new businesses to generate income and so the Amphora is already taking guests even though the lifts and such are not operating, two of the housing blocks are being completed and the underground parking area is a truly messy builders yard. However, it is not all negative by any means. For a start the price is very reasonable in fact too little for a place of this potential caliber, but the price should be low for now as some spaces look like prison yards and many of the planned facilities are not available. The concept of several apartment blocks of two or three floors is quite pleasing as well as it being great fun to be driven to ones room on a golf cart! The beach is a ‘Paphos’ beach, none of which are particularly pleasing. This one however is a small semi-private cove, fun if you are a good swimmer and they do eventually do something about the piles of winter seaweed. The beach shelves rather quickly, yet the hotel does have two pools including one for children. There is builders dust every where, I made the mistake of placing my leather holdall on the reception floor. Our room was very pleasant and clean with a seriously large balcony overlooking the pool. The bathroom fitments are excellent as are the offered toiletries. The staff were willing and polite. We are glad we went and would do so again – but not this year! When the roads are surfaced, the housing blocks and the grounds completed (and if they maintain sensible pricing levels) I can not see why anyone would not enjoy being there. However I suspect it will continue to be favoured by the young and agile and perhaps some of the young at heart.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea and are quiet, those doubles for two adults have larger balconies

This hotel shouldn't be taking peoples money yet, it's still a building site and swarming with workmen. It extends into a bigger building site next door. Websites shouldn't sell it without a warning. I'll be taking this up with Hotels.com.

Only 2 of the 6 blocks look completed and the two blocks that are in still in construction are at either end of the resort. I DON'THINK IT SHOULD BE OPEN!

I checked-in on 17 May for 9 nights and checked out on Sat 18 may. The management have moved us to their sister hotel The Capital Coast.

In time(how long?) the resort will be lovely and the sea view suite we were in was excellent but you can't expect to stay in a resort full of half finished buildings,incomplete grounds and builders. Avoid for now. ps the staff were lovely and understanding

Dear HullDavid,

We wish to thank you for taking the time to express your thoughts after your one night stay in our hotel.
We regret that your experience did not live up to your expectations, but we are pleased to advise you that all areas of the hotel are fully open and operational, and none of the hotel facilities / services are affected.
We were surprised to see the posted photos which we believe were taken prior to the opening?

Nevertheless, we are delighted to advise you that the hotel is fully operational and that we already received a number of encouraging feedback and comments from our guests (who thoroughly enjoy our swimming pool overlooking the grass area and sea, our restaurant, bar, pool bar, etc).

Please rest assured that our aim is to provide personal quality service and delight every single guest with many memorable experiences.

Once again we thank you for having taken the time to review our hotel and we sincerely hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back and in providing you with the best service you deserve.

With our very best regards from sunny Paphos,
From the Management & Staff of
Amphora Hotel & Suites
