“Annabelle-The return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

As this was our 24th visit in 22 years you can tell we like this hotel, probably because not much has changed in the last 22 years. One of the reasons we go back year on year are the staff, some who have been there almost from the start and it feels like going back to see family.
It still has the old world charm & standards and does not really cater for children (another reason why we choose to return). Beautiful grounds & very relaxing for those who want to chill out, but centrally placed for those who want more & a lovely setting for a wedding. We did have a bit of trouble getting a sun shade as we usually sit down by the waterfall and it seemed a bit too much trouble for a couple of the pool staff but we finally found one who was happy to help.
The TV choice is very poor & only any good if you want world news or finance, they did have bbc1 & a couple more uk channels last year but with new flat screen tv's the choice is now zero.
We must single out Chrystalla customer services & Yannis on reception as well as they go that extra mile to make your holiday enjoyable. The porters on the front door are very welcoming and will always bid you good day.

Room Tip: always try for a sea view room as you also over look the excellent gardens.

We booked this holiday two weeks before we went. The hotel was fantastic, the staff was fantastic, the pool was fantastic, the food was fantastic. HOWEVER the drinks like coffee or beers etc were really expensive. Lovely situated tho, easy for walking to harbour 5 minutes on level ground and bus stop outside taking you to many places. Cannot wait to return!!!

Room Tip: Rooms at side of hotel apparently really bad for 5 star hotel. Associates changed and were charged a...

We stayed for 10 nights from 6th May. The hotel is fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone. The staff were excellent, they couldn't do enough for you and were very friendly. The food is good and there is lots of choice. The only negative about the hotel is the drinks prices, they are a bit steep. My husband used the gym in the Almyra hotel next door, it was small, but well equipped and a pleasant, cool & clean environment, with a great sea view. The hotel's location is great too, a very short walk to the bars, restaurants and harbour. The perfect holiday to relax in the sun, we would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a Garden View room and it was lovely, they are quieter than those overlooking th...

I spent last weekend at the Annabelle Hotel as part of a group.I had previously visited 2 years ago and was amazed by the difference in soft furnishings in both the lobby area and bedrooms.We tried a couple of restaurants including the healthy breakfast you can pay extra for at the sister hotel Almyra,had a fantastic treatment in the spa and lazed around the adult pool there.Definately recommended !
Sunday lunch which has traditional Cypriot meze at Ouzeri with live music was very enjoyable on the seafront as was the Cypriot evening at the Mediterraneo restaurant.The situation of Annabelle is great as its an easy walk into town.
Staff from hotel management,reception staff and Stavros at the lobbt bar all were excellent.
I look forward to my next visit there.
If you like an early morning cuppa take your own kettle as there are no facilities in the room.

Room Tip: Its worth paying a little extra for sea view deluxe rooms.

First time at the Annabelle, i was really quite apprehensive, having read lots of reviews before hand. If your looking for old elegant charm, with top quality service & no roudy teenagers, then this hotel is the one for you. My age party was 41, Our room number 257 sea & pool view facing but somewhat coved back, so restricted the views of the harbour & sunsets, but nevertheless, still was really quite something on an evening to sit with a glass of wine, listening to the calming hiss & trickles of the waterfalls overlooking the sea and beautifull gardens (felt tropical). No doubt the outer wings that stand out from the hotel give the more spectacular views on the higher floors, and i would probably ask for this next time round. The walks along the sea front are a stone throw, which take you a minite or two to reach the harbour, early morning strolls when its not so hot are great, you can catch all the locals and holiday makers going for their early morning dip and grab a coffee, its really quite entertaining to see.The food & staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, with something different on the menu every eve, exceptionally very clean hotel and the house maids do a turn down service of your beds every eve and bring you beach towels ready for the next day. My only little niggle (and it is little) would be, not enough parasols on the lower decks (so be aware of this,where it really does get quite hot. and you have to be up early to grab an elevated spot around the main pool between 7am & 8am,the drinks are a little pricey too, but just learn to except this over time. Look out for young Thomas, he is a credit to the hotel, he's the one who brings you drinks around the pool, very well mannered and polite, he goes the extra mile, as i watched him struggling to move a concrete parasol base for a lady, with the offer of a fellow guest to help, he simply replied no thankyou everything is fine, sweat pouring from his face and still smiling from ear to ear, he said anything else madame just please give a me a shout. Would definitley come back to this lovely relaxing retreat. Truly a treasure in paphos.

Room Tip: A few people i spoke to decided to upgrade whilst there, to the higher sea view rooms, and it appear...

We went back to the Annabelle for my fathers birthday over the May bank holiday and once again it was a tremendous stay! Super friendly staff, smashing food and a stunning hotel.
If you want to splash out get a garden terrace room, it's fabulous to sit on the terrace surrounded by orange trees as the sun sets with a drink!

We will be back!!
