We have just stayed 2 nights in this wonderful small hotel in August and wished it was longer. It has to be the most beautiful and romantic small boutique hotel l have stayed in. The room (pomegranate) was small but perfectly designed, the outdoor space with a lovely pool and patio and fragrant herbs and trees was so relaxing, with... More

Been there for a night. A peaceful place to relax and enjoy the sounds. Offering SPA and an indoor pool for cooler months. Restaurant looks very promising but didn't had the chance to try it. Another time probably.

Just had our monthly overnight stay in Apokryfo. Very relaxing. Wonderful staff - nothing is too much trouble. Amazing food. Swimming pool and sauna great! Can't wait for our next visit. This visit we had the Sterna House with its own private courtyard so quiet and peaceful!

If it is peace and quiet away from the coastal towns, Limasol only 25 minutes away, this is an ideal location. Yes the village is quiet and there is little or no night life, but for a relaxing break within a grouping of lovely traditional rooms around a small salt water pool, great food, a fair wine list, (not forgetting...

We very much enjoyed 2 nights at Apokryfo after previously staying in Polis for a few nights. I was surprised that Lofou Village wasn't more of a "bustling" village. Supposedly the population is around 30 people. It was very quiet, but beautifully restored and peaceful. There are very few local shops or restaurants, which I did not expect, however it... More

We only stayed for one night as we thought we would have a change of scenery . I probably a bit naive as we weren't prepared for how isolated it was . It is a lovely place with very friendly hard working staff and the room was nice . It was the Lavender room as the other larger rooms weren't... More

Really enjoyed our week long stay here. Beautifully restored traditional buildings and fabulous food. The owners are very friendly and the staff who run it are really lovely. We visited with our toddler who was given such a warm welcome in true Cypriot style. Better for couples though. We stayed in the Almond room which is gorgeous and fine with... More

This restaurant is part of a boutique hotel. The restored and vastly upgraded village building is superb and came as a very pleasant surprise. As we went there on Xmas day we had the set menu parts of which were good and others just acceptable. The service was attentive, the fireplace a welcome feature and the homy atmosphere excellent. 5... More
