“Lovely location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

On arrival at the hotel we thought wow but we were a bit disappointed on being sent to our room which was a long way from the main part of the hotel, the room was apparently typically Cypriot in being very basic and out of the 80's but spotlessly clean. The whole complex was clean and well looked after and the snorkelling was great, it was a bit choppy somedays but you could still swim in the salt water inlet pool and in the 2 hotel pools so not a problem, the breakfast was average but better in the restaurant at the top end of the hotel. I don't think the hotel does itself any marketing favours though, we were told nothing on check in, all info was left to the Thompson rep(well worth investing half an hour) room packs would be a good idea with info about the restaurant, menus etc, we stumble led on a fun music/ cocktail night by the pool by accident, and I think the hotel could do more to let you know what's happening. But all said would definitely revisit and we loved a housekeeper she was great and looked after us.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel and a superior as no tea and coffee facilities in standard room whi...

I arrived on tuesday 23rd of october for a few days visit.The hotel was perfect,so clean refreshing,staff so welcoming,the management always in hand to help you.Lunch food was excellent At night.Dinner was out of this world .Back at the bar ,the entertaiment was perfect.
Cynyhiana is not only a hotel with the most percentage of repeated customers in cyprus,but most customers regard it as there second home.I agree with them.
Its unique, its perfect.

Room Tip: Saa view of course.In the main buliding if possible,but in cynthiana all rooms have sea view.

An average hotel, a bit worn out. Average breakfast with a lot of noise and dull food (last day we found out it was possible to have breakfast in the upper part of the hotel, do that!) The grounds are nice, but you must lay towels before breakfast on sunchairs. Lots of rude russians. Stay away from dinner at the hotel. Use the resturant next door instead or take the bus (every 15 min) to Paphos or Coral bay. Stairs to the sea with very clear water. NO BEACH, but swimming pools for the kids. You must by cold water from bars, the kiosk was not alowed to sell cold water!! But you get 6 botles for the price of one in the hotel at Lidl on the way to Paphos (if you go by car) If you rent a car, go to Polis by E709) Lots of historic placec to see in Paphos.

Room Tip: Choose room against the sea! The view is stunning and you fall asleep to the sound from the waves.

Hotel was booked last minute and we got it for a reasonable price for bed and breakfast. Room was clean and cool. Shower was ok. Housekeeping were very efficient. Only meal we had was breakfast which was a buffet. Nothing outstanding here but plenty of dull food to choose from. No fresh fruit which i found odd or even fresh fruit juice. Location looked beautiful and the coastal view is spectacular. Pool and garden areas were busy early on with loads of Russian guests staying the week we were there. Pool bar was very nice and had a few nice lunches here sitting in the shade. Taxi to Paphos was about £15. Bus is fairly regular into town but the main road is a 15 minute walk up a hill which was fairly unpleasant in the boiling heat. Bus was one euro during the day and two euros at night. The travelling was too much of a pain for me with hindsight so would rather have paid extra to be more central for the week.

We stayed here in September 2011. We did not book a hotel before arriving in Cyprus and called in at practically every hotel in Paphos and a long the cost. The Cynthiana was the most reasonably priced and in a great location being on its own peninsula. We were shown a room in the main building with sea view and although clean it did not excite me too much. The hotel does need a bit of a makeover and I think my face must have shown it as the receptionist took us to the Olympian wing and offered us a room there for the same price. This did the trick and instead of staying two nights we stayed for a whole week. The room was spacious and the view to die for! The staff are very friendly , the Olympian pool very quiet and relaxing and the beach bar fun for watching strong swimmers braving the rough sea. For me- I swam in the calm man made area! I grew quite fond of the Cynthiana.

Have visited this Hotel many times in the past and we keep going because the location is awesome. However, the hotel has been invaded by very rude Russian people in recent years and don't go half board as the food is very average.

However, the grounds are very nice and if you look around you can find very quiet spots to just relax and take it all in. There are also some great restaurants within two minutes walk, Doria's Beach restaurant is outstanding and we ate there every night it was that good.

There is a bus you can catch to visit the more busier coral bay and Paphos itself. If you want to see other parts of Cyprus get a car.

The rooms need refurbishing badly and the air con in the hotel room broke for us on several occasions. For the money though its OK and lets face it you don't stay in the room that long.

Definitely upgrade to superior room and get sea view as its stunning.

Room Tip: Upgrade to superior and get sea view. Go B&B and visit Doria's restaurant.

just returned home from 10 wonderfully days half board at the Cynthiana Hotel. Reception very pleasant, efficient & happy to help, very large hotel split into 3-4 buildings a little bit of a maze but that just adds to the excitement of new surroundings. Breath taking views of the sea, private beach, gardens. There are 2-3 swimming pools, Gym, Sauna, Table tennis, Poole table and daily activities eg Aqua Aerobics if you wish to take part. Plenty of sun beds to go around do look at pictures on web site to get a better idea very well maintained. Food was plentiful & very well cooked, lots of variety, evening meals at least 3 x different meats and fish, potatoes, rice, pasta abundance of salads & fresh cream gateau’s, cakes & ice cream, excellent service from waiting staff, friendly & attentive wow surprisingly only ½ a stone heavier. The only gripe for my husband & I was that there was no kettle in rooms, they charge 2.50 Euros daily if you want tea & coffee, so we bought a kettle & made our own, all the plug sockets take three pin. The hotel is in need of TLC as it is frayed at the edges BUT the rooms are cleaned & towels changed daily, I would highly recommend this hotel great value for money. We will be back.
