“Quite relaxing and friendly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Just came from the hylatio on Sunday 28th. If your looking for lots
Of entertainment, here is not the place. But don't get me wrong the staff are friendly, helpfull. There is plenty to do, if you look. I had a few walks and got some get photos. Car hire, trips are all available. Weather is hot at this time year. We did have rain extra, but hey, am now back home sitting at temps of 5 or 6. Small mention to the pissouri divers (tracy and Neil) who took me out for the day. All in all am happy. If the staff of hylatio read this, take care and thank you . Safe journey home .

decided to do a late deal for a week of winter sun so booked hylatio as oh had not been to cyprus before. landed at paphos and was only 25 mins transfer to the hylatio. lovely place 10 mins from small stony beach,staff here are as good as anywhere,nothing too much bother and quick to help at all times. had a car for 4 days so did 250 miles around island and would def recommend. we only self catered as we like to eat out. definately recommend to people wanting quite getaway. our room was cleaned every day and was lovely, onsite shop cheap aswell and steve and jill are lovely people.

Another visit to the Hylatio and all good as usual. Have not visited in October before and the evenings are a bit 'chilly' for me so will stick to June, July & Aug.
Our cleaner was excellant, room cleaned 12 out of 14 days. Rest of staff all excellant with special mention to FLORIN who really should be a comedien and FLOREY who runs a very 'tight ship' with that added personal touch.
Booked SC with Olympic at a very good price and upgraded to AI onsite, good value at 300Euros for the fortnight per person, Breakfast buffet - good but basic, Lunch, bar snacks cooked to order - plenty of choice, Dinner buffet - good quality traditional food, the Cyprus dishes were very good in my opinion. My suggestion if staying for 2 weeks is hire a car (not on-site as only through Olympic, order from UK and pick up at the airport, it is a very easy drive to Hylatio)and SC one week AI the second although if you will be drinking alot (soft drinks or alcohol) it may still be worth AI for both!
The owners Vlad & Maria are usually on-site and are there if you need them, but try Florey the manager first!
If you want to do nothing but chill for a week or two then this is the place to go or make sure you hire a car if you prefer to get out and about and use Hylatio as a base.
Car Hire tip : Larger party/family - If you have transfers included just hire a small car to pick up at the airport and put some of your group and luggage on the transfer bus!

This is our second time at Hylatio Village, the place is surrounded by lovely trees, plants and flowers, the rooms are basic but okay, quite spacious and a fair size balcony (some of which have lovely views). As pointed out in a previous review there was a strange drain smell near the car park but considering my room wasn’t exactly on top of it, didn’t really spoil things for me and I don’t think I would go all inclusive as both my Husband and I like to try different restaurants which is only a good 5/7 minute walk. Pissouri Village is a really lovely place and it doesn’t cater for those who want noisy bars and discos (sometimes allocation on arrival may be isn’t the best idea). There is no bus service so if you do want to go further then car hire is a must. A trip to the Troudos Mountains is good and we also went to the Camel Sanctuary where you can have a ride or even feed the camels which was hilarious. We’ve both agreed we would re-visit again for a week.

Just spent 2 weeks at the Hylatio. I did not recognise the place we stayed when I read some of the comments submitted. Good clean accommodation and facilities. We opted for the self catering option but that was our choice. Plenty of eating places in walking distance. Given what we paid, I doubt you will get better value. If you are looking for better food - you may need to pay more. The brochure makes clear that Pissouri is out of the way but that was what attracted us to it.

The Hylatio is a bit off the beaten track. There is no public transport and it is very isolated, there is a short walk into the bay part of Pissouri but not very much there a shop and a pub and a very expensive hotel very little else. Apparently it is possible to walk to the village up a very steep hill where there is slightly more activity. A taxi to the village costs 10 euro's each way!
In the hotel there is very little if zero entertainment, no television, there is quite loud unpleasant music played around the pool during the day. Throughout the hotel area there is a mixture of bad smells from drains!
I do not think I have ever encountered a more unhelpful reception, if you can get anyone at all to respond for requests for help they are really very poor. I asked where could I hire a car, was told "see the rep", I asked for directions to the village and was told "see the rep!"
The rep was ok but sold tours like they all do! At vastly inflated prices. e.g trip to Kyrenia North side of the island....69 euros, price in paphos same tour 29 euros!
Extras, lots of extras, ,no television, internet an 5 euros for about an hour, extra for air conditioning.
Electricity/ door lock. As with a lot of hotel rooms the door key had to be placed in a slot to enable electricity supply. A few points with this, on entering the room it is difficult to find slot in pitch dark! On locking room when going to sleep you have to take key out then in total darkness find key hole and lock door before returning key to put light back on again! My wife managed to get it down to locking the door in the dark to 11 seconds.
Car hire is a must and there is a place near the hotel where a car can be hired from.
If you hire from the airport take care as the hotel would be very very difficult to find in the dark, no street lighting and no illuminated hotel name sign!
Self catering facilities were ok except the frying pan provided was still covered in fat from what ever the las occupants had been frying! The fridge was so noisy we had to turn it off at night!

Room Tip: Try and get a room as far away from the car park as possible as the smell of the drains linger more...

On arrival we were about 45 minutes early, we asked the lad on reception if we could leave our cases and return in a little while, he replied don,t worry about that and put our AI wristbands on straight away and told us to get something to eat-drink as our room was not ready. The cleaner said she was sorry about that, heaven knows why we were early.

Our apartment was fine, the staff always cheerful, the owner was OK , some people has said he is grumpy, but how many bother to say hello or good morning to him he was fine with us.,

And the staff are on the go non stop, the staff you see late at night are the same ones that clean up after breakfast, they get a bit of time off in the afternoon then they are working through until 1am nothing is to much trouble for them and they always have a smile.

The food was not to bad sausages bacon egg beans toast for breakfast. Lunch pizza ,spag bol
pasta, burger-chips etc.

The main evening meal could be a bit hit-miss, but in all we found the Hylatio good value for the price we paid.

on the bar area we found it to be fairly quiet most nights, I do not think that it is fair to blame AI drinkers for all the noise , especially at one thirty am ,AI stops at midnight and I never saw anyone knocking back all they could drink just because it was there. nobody falling about drunk every night, this is Pissouri not Ayia Napa. AI beer was served in half pint glasses. the only time we heard a racket was a woman that had arrived AI she was in the bar late and had a high pitched shriek for a laugh, another night there was some late night noise with people in nearby villas I think there was a party going on, Also non AI used to drink their drinks bought from the supermarket on their patios at night.but there was no real noise to speak of. expect for quiz night we could hear that from our room, but it stopped around 11-30pm

As we paid a very low price for Hylatio, we ate out three times during our stay there for a change of scenery.

The age group was mixed a few in there 20s others around 50-60, The staff of hylatio seem to love children, there was only one a little lad about two, there is a little play area for young children, with a play house ,slide and cars.

The gardens were lush, I used to love the courtyard surrounding the bar,with the scent of the flowers ,and the resident cat made the place, he loves that big pot.

The lovely old village at the top still remains full of Cypriot charm ,non drivers it is 10 euro each way from the bay to the village the bus only runs from may-Sept , in high season the Cypriot night is brilliant. The village is lovely but very steep I would not recommend it for people with walking difficulties.

would I return to Hylatio again, yes if I was staying in the bay.

Room Tip: BLOCK 6. If you cannot handle steep stairs, go for a downstairs one bed apartment
