“November Sunshine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My partner and I stayed at the Capital Coast from the 10th - 17th November booking an 'Attic' type room.

No problems with the room, spacious, fully working and fitted kitchen including dishwasher, fridge freezer, kettle and toaster. No lift access to the room based on the 4th floor; so anyone booking with disabilities, are best off booking a room with a balcony on one of the lower floors.

Hotel was deathly quiet at this time of the year as was the surrounding areas but having wanted a quiet week away in November we got what we wanted / paid for.

There is no evening entertainment and you do not see many staff except cleaners but in November and out of season I guess this is to be expected. The staff that we did have contact with were friendly enough and didnt make you feel like requests from people were an issue.

Lidl is right across the road from the hotel which was handy for snacky bits and bottled water etc.

The mainroad outside of the hotel houses a lot of bars and restaurants although most of these were closed at this time of the year. I could imagine this being rather busy in the summer and more peak times of the summer and season.

The harbour is around a 50 minute walk away which with the weather on your side is actually quite pleasant, either way the buses run from outside of the hotel at €1 per single journey or €3 for the whole day till 11pm. This acts as a travel card so can be used a number of times in one day...The opposite direction is Coral Bay which has a lovely beach and another strip of bars and restaurants.

We used the Spa in the hotel and have to say this is well worth the money. We had a couples treatment for just over 2 hours and was very relaxed when leaving.

Only complaints are that the outdoor and indoor pools are beyond freezing cold and I only ventured into them once, which was enough. The indoor pool and jacuzzi area is a bit shabby considering how nice and luxurious the spa area feels.

The shop onsite was never open when it stated it was meant to be and was often told by reception that maybe the lady that run the shop was 'running late'. We didnt eat in the hotel restaurant as were self catering but plenty of people did so can only assume the food was decent.

All in all for November and a cheap week away in the sunshine the hotel and area ticked the boxes, although would chose to go in the summer months rather than the winter.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We stayed in November 2012 and got a good off-season price on a suite of £45 a night for a pool-facing/sea room with a kitchen. The room was extremely clean and well-cleaned every day. The shower was hot with good pressure. The main bathroom was a good size with a shower and a tub. There are 2 toilets (in different rooms) which is great if you have kids. Our room was quiet at night. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.

The three negatives were (a) the beds were very hard, though this is common in Eastern Europe. It did not bother us too much, but could be a real issue for others (b) the kitchen did not have any salt, aluminum foil, washing-up liquid, cleaning liquid, sponge, dishwasher tablets, or even a hand towel, (c) the mini-market, pool towel-exchange, reception were not open or low-staffed after 6 pm, (d) you are charged 10 euros for internet which is not wireless and which does not work consistently, (3) the indoor pool was very cool as it is unheated, (e) you can not swim from the beach right outside the hotel, but you can walk about 5 or so minutes to a nearby beach though it is quite rocky and may not be appropriate for kids (e) not a good spot if you don't have a hotel, (f) the kitchen chairs make a loud sound when moved around so you may be woken up by the people next door or above you.

Tip: Be very careful of what type of room you are booking. Don't book the 'attic' rooms unless you know it has no window. Make sure the room description says 'balcony.' Unless you're room says 'sea-facing,' you will have an outside balcony.

Tip: Wilton Patisserie in Ktima is excellent with amazing baklava and galaktubero. I can't remember the address and it is stupidly not on the website. I believe it is something like misoges st. I will post later if I find it.

I have been meaning to review this extraordinary hotel for a long time. I visited with a group of friends back in June and these are the key points;

+ The rooms are enormous and really modern, ours had kitchen facilities too, about 3 tvs (between 5), 2 bathrooms, 2 balconies
+ £400, 1 week in boiling summer, room, breakfast, transfers, flights and luggage
+ Direct access to the sea, indoor and outdoor pools, spa, sauna, steam room, gym, classes
+ Not directly near any other hotels, secluded but driving distance into the town
+ watching the sunset from the cocktail bar drinking champagne
+ The outdoor area is laid out so well, you can sit next to the pool, at a distance or on the rocks right next to the waters edge ( it is rocky but beautiful and always quiet)
+ Hiring off road buggies across the road to explore the waterfalls and gorge nearby --> you need to be thick skinned to drive this but it is unbelievable, especially the waterfalls

-The indoor pool area could do with a bit of an improvement, it is starting to age a bit ( but that's me being really fussy)

This truly is a lovely hotel and I shall most probably be returning. It is well suited to friends, couples and families and keeps a good balance of all types of clientèle.

Room Tip: Get one with catering facilities included, I believe they are larger.

We stayed at the Capital Coast for a week 31st Oct. through Book Cyprus, could not fault anything in this hotel or the travel company. As with all trips abroad for the first time we were worried the reviews were not genuine about the hotel as all seemed to good to be true, however this was not the case everything was as they said it was going to be. The pictures on the hotel website were very true, food was brill and as was been clean this is the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. Although the hotel is on the edge of Pafos the bus service just outside the hotel ground ran every 15min and was only one Euro to go anywhere. Booking again to go back in June and defiantly with Book Cyprus.

Room Tip: Sea view superior or executive rooms are the best.

We just got back from a week stay at the Capital Coast with our 4 yr old son. I read a lot of reviews about the hotel before we left and found some of them true but a lot were really picky. We obviously went in late season for them so it was not totally full so it might be a different story at another time. This hotel was originally built for time share hence the fully contained flats. We had a one bed superior suite and it was huge. Full kitchen, huge lounge, big bedroom and two bathrooms, and to top it all off a big balcony.

This type of room is perfect for a family as you have the kitchen to make snacks and even do washing, there is an iron and ironing board, and a dry rack outside for your washing. TIP I would take some washing powder, tea towel, washing up sponge and dishwash with, if you have space otherwise you can buy it all there in the shop or at the Lidl supermarket across the road.

We arrived late at 8pm and took a cab from the airport, it cost 35 euros so not bad at all. If you are not rushed for time you can take the local bus from the airport for 1 euro and it goes to the harbour main stop and from there you can get any bus. You can also get a 3 euro ticket for the whole day. The bus routes are brilliant and run very frequently. We always found a seat but once again in peak season it might be different.

There are lots of restaurants above the hotel on the main road and lots to chose from in the harbour, all over actually so spoilt for choice. We loved the food on offer in the hotel, we had half board so only really had two meals a day. They seem to have themes for the buffet at the hotel and it was always something new.

The Lidl at the top of the road has fresh bread everyday as well and drinks so you can get everything there for really cheap.

The hotel is not your typical hotel set up for children so people who like a noisy hotel with lots of cheesy entertainment for kids won't like this. There is a games room downstairs which my husband and son used. The pools are very safe although a bit chilly this time of the year.

TIP do go down to the water in front of the hotel and walk a little way to the right as you are standing in front facing the sea, there is a little stairway down to the water and it is as clear as can be with pebbles, you can just climb down and swim in the amazing sea. My son loved sorting out pebbles. Strangely not a lot of people went down to the rocks. There is a swimming beach to the left of the hotel but we only went there once. We loved our little place. TIP I would say if you buy those little soft bootie type shoes you will be much better off walking along the rocks and pebbles as they can be hard on your feet.

The sea water temp was warmer than the pool water.

You can walk all along the seafront and the paths are pretty good, even for prams it will be fine.

There is a pool bar which serves lunch and drinks most of the day. I think it might be nice if they had some sort of music on outside to create a bit of atmosphere but saying that we loved the peace and quiet as well. There were plenty of deck chairs everyday. There is also a little kids play area on the grass in front of the beach.

I did not use the spa area but it looked lovely. I did swim in the indoor pool and used the jacuzzi, which sometimes had unsupervised kids in which was a bit annoying but that is the parents fault. You get pool towels to use free of charge and can change them every second day.

We went out on may occasions, you have to go to the Aphrodite Rock/birthplace, it was well worth the drive there. The ladies at the main bus stop in Paphos in the harbour were very helpful and had a lot of suggestions.

I really cannot fault the hotel staff much, I think the reception staff here and there did not understand what I wanted or sometimes I think they were tired but in the end we got what we asked for. Our shower was leaking badly and we asked them to send an engineer. He came and looked at it and said, shower and call housekeeping. I think he had a busy day. We left it another day and I went to speak to the supervisor at reception and they sent another guy and later that day he came and put some silicon on. The hotel is slowly starting to show some cracks and little things that need doing but it is only a few years old so still very good condition. I am sure they use the cooler months to do that. I think they are fairly busy most of the year with timeshare.

TIP you must be in the bar at 6-7 for happy hour. We sampled many cocktails at 2 Euros each, buy one get one free. Total giveaway.

Another HUGE TIP I can give, especially the travellers who have not travelled much in Europe. The hotel has a not flushing toilet paper down the toilet policy, there are little bins in the bathrooms but this can be a pretty hair raising thing to do so I would recommend buying some nappy bags, the ones you put the soiled nappies in and taking them with so you can rather put the dirty toilet tissue in those as you never know when your cleaner will be in.

So all in all, the location of the hotel we found perfect, not in the harbour or the other busy bits, a little out but not far to get in. Coral bay is too far out if you need to get in. There is a special place we went for sundowners, cannot remember the name but ask the locals will know, it is just past Coral Bay, there is a newish shipwreck there and a fab cocktail bar, restaurant on the beach with the best views.

So all in all a great stay, we loved the hotel and room and found it good value for money, I would not call it 5 star but most of the hard working staff make it worthwhile. These guys work hard and long hours for very little money and still have a smile on their face every day.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room, you don't want to face the back of the hotel. We stayed on the left si...

We stayed here for my 50th birthday last week (30-10-12 to 6-11-12), with my wife and 2 kids 8 and 4 in one room, and my in-laws in a separate room. We paid half board in a good sized superior room costing £699 total. Ryan flights made the whole week a reasonable & affordable price.

The room was the best we have ever stayed in - comprising a smashing en-suite bedroom, living room with settee-bed that was fine for kids and included a separate bathroom and shower, and kitchenette with kettle, washing machine, fridge and freezer. Each room had access to a joint balcony. Each room also had a flat screen TV. The rooms were 4 spotless and kept clean by friendly maids. Views were reasonably good with the sea to one side, and coastal scrub in front.

The reception is fine and there is good car parking space. Reception staff were fine.
Food was of a very good standard most nights during the week, with a good range for breakfast and evening dinner. Self service based. Could do with some kids food though, such as simple chicken nuggets and chips (sorry but our daughter is not easy to please and she likes familiar stuff). This would be possible as you can buy that very meal from the lunch time poolside bar that works via the same kitchen. The staff in the dining area can appear a little abrupt but they are professional, as is the chef who tries to help and obviously takes great pride in his cooking. They all work incredibly hard. The roast meat evening was to die for. A good variety of food and salads all evenings, and breakfast includes all cooked or cold meets / pancakes etc.

I particularly like the laid back pool side ambience, There are no tight knit throngs of people clambouring for sun beds. The fact that rooms are so large means that there are not that many people at the hotel at any one time. Hence it never seems overly crowded. The 3 pools are lovely and adequate for all ages. There was no kids entertainment (it had finished for the season the previous week). But there were a few kids for ours to mix with and they loved the pools. Most adults actually took sun beds on the grass overlooking the sea. Sunsets to die for!! The poolside bar serves drinks and food and again service and standard was excellent. There is an excellent small sandy beach a few hundred metres to the left , in front of the Venus Beach hotel, if that is your thing. Our kids loved playing on the grassed play area, that included a football goal.

There is a lovely indoor pool and spa area, comprising towel exchange area and fitness room for guests. Small kids game room was barely used.

You have to pay for wi-fi (5 euros for 3 days, 10 euros for a week, for example).
The main flip-side is the sterile-looking bar in the evening, though the bar staff were great. You can make the most of the lovely outside seating area, though it may get taken quickly in summer. We spent several lovely evenings here. There are few alternative pubs/ restaurants in the immediate vicinity, unless you walk ten minutes back in Paphos direction, and the approach access road is on a quite a slope and hence may hinder less mobile a bit. There is a bus stop at the top, and it costs 1 euro for adults on all bus rides (kids go free). Bus service is 615 either way - to Paphos or Coral Bay.

Overall, we had a wonderful time - the hotel is superb, location a bit quiet. Staff were excellent overall. Very good value for money. We went half board, but of yo go self catering there is a Lidl at the top of the road.Of course it always depends what you expect. But we had a quite wonderful week, and of course it helps when the weather is so good as it was all week - 26-28C & sunny every day.

Suite 1021, 10 days stay, 6 October - 16 October 2012:
All in all: Capital Coast is far from a five star hotel, 3+ is a fair judgement, in our opinion. Some good qualities in suite, though. One bedroom suite, quite large, approx. 65 m2. Large balcony facing west and beautiful sunsets. Smaller balcony facing north. Full kitchen with all necessary equipment. Nice bedroom, comfortable beds. Complimentary airport service.

Very small bathroom. Shower door not closing properly, leaking water all over floors. Poor breakfast, no variety in choice, same stuff every day. Cochroaches in the rooms. No beach, but public beach within walking distance - 300 meters. Lunch at pool bar: Not possibel to by a bottle of wine with the food, wine only served pr glass in plastic glasses. Tried the buffet dinner one evening: food was low standard, over cooked, not nice. Food seems to be british an russian "cuisine", we went out for proper meals every evening. The hotel and outdoor areas is lacking the final quality touch, seems as the owners run out of money and never was able to finish the project.
