arrived with my daughter last Wednesday. The room service food, the hotel itself is next to none. I am coming back in September I give it 100 per cent for all.

Had a lovely week at the Annabelle, the staff are just soooo very friendly and helpful, especially when my husband was taken ill, nothing was too much trouble. Sun beds were tricky to find and I only mention it as it is quite an important part of the holiday for a lot of people and could put them off returning - we definately hope to come back soon - thank you !

a wonderful hotel set in beautiful gardens overlooking the sparkling blue sea. Our bedroom 355 was splendid and we were greeted with wine fruit and chocolates. Food at the hotel is first class with a very wide choice and a chef always on hand to look after your every need. A classical pianist plays for you prior to the evening meal. The hotel is spotless and the furnishings all you would expect of a five star hotel of this quality.
The extra star is for the incredible staff who liaise and treat the guests as old friends. Nothing is too much trouble and they ALL go that extra mile to ensure you have a splendid holiday.
This was our first visit but we will return.

Thankyou to EVERYONE at the Annabelle.

This is a very good hotel in the absolute best location, ie a quiet seaside setting but very close to the centre for shops and restaurants. Some more good points: the staff are fantastic; extremely courteous, friendly and helpful, everything asked for was attended to immediately. The rooms are spacious and pleasantly furnished. The setting of pool and quieter garden areas suits all tastes.

A few negatives however. This year (we have been before) there seemed to be a shortage of the comfortable sunbeds and the only way of securing one was to be up early because by 8.00am most had gone. It seems they have removed some beds to make way for a new outside, unshaded dining area which hardly anyone appeared to use. There seem to be plenty of places to eat around the hotel so this would better be restored to a sunbathing area. Most people would prefer to eat with a bit of shade anyway. There also seemed to be other spaces where more sunbeds could be sighted. It would also be best if they kept to the same high quality comfortable wooden ones rather than introducing tacky looking black ones.

One of the lunch dishes was a chicken wrap at the Mediterraneo. It was billed as chicken breast and at €14.70 one would certainly expect it to be, however it was dark meat so not good enough. Other food niggles were the queue for an egg at breakfast and it often being swamped in fat.

Overall it didn't spoil our stay but a few improvements could make all the difference. Oh; and the best 5 star in Paphos? Elysium.

Room Tip: Some non-sea view rooms are very close and on the same level as the outside dining area. Diners can...

Stayed here in May 2012. The trip was definitely helped by the fantastic weather, but take nothing away from the brilliant customer service. All the staff were excellent, in particular Laura on reception, who dealt with all queries and bookings very quickly.

Stayed in a deluxe room with private pool and would definitely recommend if you are happy to splash out the extra money. The private pool was a little cool (pleasantly refreshing in the hot weather though), but having the private area with sunbeds and seating was very useful, as the crazy Europeans love to get out and reserve their sunbed by the pool then leave for most of the day. A very strange practice that I can only attribute to low levels of vitamin D or something.

The food was good, although we did choose to eat out a number of times, just to get a bit more variety and experience the local area. One evening meal at the sister hotel next door (Almyra) in the restaurant over the bay (literally over the bay on a timber deck) was fantastic. Excellent food and location.

The hotel is in a perfect location, close to the main area, but far enough away to be quiet. The only problem was on one of the last nights, where there was some sort of function nearby with extreme levels of noise until about 2-3am. The hotel staff couldnt do much as the noise was coming from a neighbouring property and they were receiving numerous complaints.

Pool area was great, hotel bar was excellent and prices reasonable. Obviously more expensive than neighbouring bars but that is expected at a 5 star hotel.

Massage at the spa was also very good.

Overall very good and I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms with private pool are worth the extra.

Having just returned form The Annabelle Paphos this was our third visit,the hoel has been renevated inthe public areas and new furniture added which makes the hotel look alot lighter as it is an old Hotel but it always has it charm of a five star. The staff are very attentive in most of the areas if there are problems they will do their utmost to solved them. We had to move rooms as the next door building was being renavated and the building work started early, we did have the choice of 3 rooms and once we had made our choice it was soon sorted out.
I do feel that charging for using the fridge of 15 euros a day was a bit steep that had not happened before and water was not cheap in the hotel to buy also there were not enough beds and umberella for everyone when the hotel was busy that needs solving. But we do hope to return at some point again and maybe these problems will be solved.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view deos cost a bit more but the views are stunning, and ask for a high room and away...

I have just returned from a short visit to Paphos, staying at The Annabelle. I would like to express my thanks to Harry, Christabelle, George, Ciprius (sorry if I have miss-spelt your names) and all the staff at the hotel who made our stay so great. The pool is so beautiful and we enjoyed the ease of just finishing a day by the pool with a superb dinner in the hotel. The hotel is perfectly situated next to the harbour so ideal for a late night stroll if you fancy people watching. The room was perfect. It was my birthday on the saturday and it was a lovely surprise when a big cake was delivered to the room. So thanks everyone at the Annabelle...you can be sure I will recommend the hotel to friends in future. Gideon and Kate
