“Amazing food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We visited the Louis Imperial Beach in October 2012. We knew that the hotel was due to be refurbished for the summer 2013. That didn't put us booking due to the great reviews it had. Yes the rooms were a bit dated but very clean. Who stays in there room all day anyway to even notice??!!
The staff are all really friendly and can't do enough for you. Even bringing your drinks to you by the pool and beach!
The entertainment team work so hard to get people involved in activities during the day. We felt so sorry for them when no one took part.
The food was amazing. So much choice and variety that you never get bored! We have never eaten so many gorgeous cakes!! Will warn you that you will put on some pounds!! :)
Only negative is the quality of the drinks around the pool on all inclusive. It must be a substituted version of the well known makes, quite syrupy and no flavour.
Can't wait to rebook for this year 2013 and see the new refurbishment.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view. Beautiful to look over to paphos town.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I visited the Louis Imperial Beach for the second time in the summer of 2012. I have now booked again for a week in the spring.

First with the negatives-which are far outweighed by the positives.

I was disappointed to find the entertainment team had changed and there were a few slight negatives here. They worked hard but maybe hadn't had enough time together to be as good as the previous team.

One thing that I didn't like, and this seemed to be the case with other guests, was that large parties of guests would reserve seats and tables for the evening in central positions by placing paper RESERVED signs across tables and this seemed to be honoured. This resulted in a lack of seating for smaller parties of guests and positions left weren't so desirable. The same guests appeared to have priority when ordering drinks from the waiters and it all looked very jolly for the large parties but not so much for couple and small parties. I hope this will be addressed as several guests said they did feel 'second class.'

But as said the positives far outweigh the few negatives and I LOVE this hotel and so does my husband.

The food is good and there's vegetarian options, lovely location too with restaurants and bars close by and a bus stop too. Taxis are easy to get close to the hotel. Nice swimming pools and lots of facilities. A sun bed can always be found, if not poolside there are lovely spots by the sea or on the lawns.

The rooms have been refurbished but I thought they were pleasant anyway with fridge, tea making and safe facilities.

I would recommend a sea view room upgrade as it is worth it in my opinion.

Rooms are kept clean with towel and bed linen changed regularly.

But the very best thing about this hotel in mine and my husband's opinions are the staff. Service is great and polite. We especially enjoyed talking to bar staff who seem to be mostly Bulgarians. We found these people efficient, polite and friendly.

Staff throughout the hotel and in the restaurant are excellent. The service makes this my favourite hotel and I can't wait to visit again this year.

Room Tip: Sea views rooms are worth having

Dear repeated guest,

It was indeed a great pleasure to welcome you again at the Louis Imperial Beach.

It fills us with joy that our varied selection of vegetarian food satisfied your appetite, that you note our outdoor facilities and that there is enough space for each guest in the sun. We are glad that you look forward to the refurbishment and that the best place in your memories is taken by our great and polite staff. We are sorry to hear your disappointment about our entertainment team, but we hope it is just a matter of time until they become as good as the previous team, and will impress you during your next stay. It is surprising to hear about paper “Reserved” signs, as the places should be free until the person is actually sitting there, so we will consider this remark in order to prevent something similar from happening in the future. Moreover we are very sorry that you were made to feel left out by some of our staff, and we will make it our priority to inform them of their responsibilities for the new season.

It is delight to hear that despite these small problems you still enjoyed your stay at the Louis Imperial Beach and have already booked our hotel for your upcoming holiday.

Warm regards,

The Management.

We had our wedding here in August '12 at the hotel overlooking the beach and it was a dream come true. The venue is great for either just the ceremony or having the whole day there The staff are really helpful and make the day your very own. Well worth having a look at ;-) 10/10

An excellent hotel outside of the town but with superb connections.

Started to get a little tired but led to believe it is having a revamp over winter. The hotel is setback from the road and overlooking the sea. The stand out part of this holiday was the superb food, although buffet style the ambience of the restaurant was top notch with quality tableware and service. All the meals were fresh and hot with an excellent choice of local dishes.

The rooms are well maintained with en-suite, a criticism was that the shower was feeble in power but supplied plenty of hot water, towels changed daily and of a very good quality.

I avoided the bar as the prices were very high and I wasn't all inclusive but that is a minor issue as there are plenty of bars or restaurants nearby. There is plenty of parking for hire cars in the front of the hotel however the bus service from outside the hotel is so good I gave hiring a car a miss this time and never regretted it.

The beach is really just a shingle patch to the water, I used the loungers on the grass area and still had an excellent sea view.

A superb high class notel

Room Tip: Try to get a high level sea view, sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea at night is superb

Have stayed many times at the Imperial over a number of years, but last year it was the turn of our daughter, family and friends, and all agreed they had a great times. They were allocated sea view rooms , even though their friends family had not booked this at the Travel agent, but we had called in to the Hotel earlier in the year to let them know it was a "wedding anniversary" return. The Hotel Staff were brilliant and could not have been kinder or more welcoming. But that is what the Imperial has always been about - a warm welcoming home from home - as many repeaters will testify.
True the Hotel was looking tired, but now it is being extensively refurbished, and cant wait for the grand opening 1st May 2013 so that we can arrange our summer holiday.
We look forward to meeting all our friends from the Manager to the Room Attendants (too good to be classified as cleaners), and , of course, George the Head Chef.
Best wishes to Mr Styllianou and Staff for 2013 , but you wont need luck !!

Room Tip: Doesn't matter but sea views are very good. Just avoid the few rooms on third floor near a/c uni...

The air-con in the communal areas of this hotel is ridiculous, specifically the restaurant. To ensure customers return this surely must be rectified? Eating indoors in weather like this without sufficient A/C is impractical, worst case scenario, the hotel should allow guests to eat outdoors. Will return if/when A/C is rectified. Note to hotel, as i know sometimes you reply, there was no power failure on the island or similar issue. Please sort as part of your refurbishment. Ps fans in the entertsinment area would greatly be appreciated by your guests.

We came to this hotel for a big family wedding in 2012 the wedding was in the Annabelle Hotel along the road but the rest of us stayed in the louis hotel. The food was absolutely amazing and loads of choice, something different every day! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and always kept clean and beds made, although thats not important as you hardly spend any time in your room on holiday.. The pool, and surroundings were great and there was always somewhere to wander or something to do and plenty of sunbeds around the pool area which the life guard went round and checked they were clean if not he would give them a wipe over which was good! Weather was gorgeous, and it was extremely relaxing. The beach was a bit rocky/pebbly but still lovely to walk along, only one small fault was the air con wasn't the best it just seemed to blow out hot air which made it hard to sleep night times as it was very humid but other than that you cant fault the hotel. There were loads of shops, bars, places to eat etc and plenty of places to go/see. The staff were amazing and very helpful especially when we had to book our taxis to take us to the wedding they organised everything for u! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and were all thinking about coming back next year as a massive family again!! Hope to be back in the sunshine soon!
