Booked daughters wedding here, what a fantastic day. The Hotel staff were so helpful, always on hand, nothing too much trouble. Rooms and Hotel very clean. Would have liked 'make your own coffee facilities' in room, and make sure you read rules of fridge use. You cannot put anything in the fridge unless its medicinal or you pay.
Would love to stay again. Had a terrific week.

14 nights at the Annabelle, warm welcome from the duty manager Maria, beautiful property, incredible food, very friendly and genuine staff, lovely spa, well maintained throughout and immaculately clean, lacks a beach but the water is beautiful supported by a good variety of watersports and entertainment for the kids.Yes, we would recommend and return.

After reading mixed reviews of the hotel we were somewhat apprehensive as to what our week would bring at the Annabelle!

We shouldn't have worried. Having stayed in some top class hotels around the world we found the service to be completely on a par with some of the finest.

From the efficiency and helpfulness of the chambermaids, the rooms were always spotlessly clean with bed linen being changed regularly, toiletries refilled, beach towels always replaced.

The pool bar staff were extremely friendly, always on hand for extra towels, umbrella/bed arrangements and never a wait for someone to take a cold drink order - which would always arrive quickly with a smile :)

All the staff at breakfast, lunch and dinner were always fresh and meticulous (many working all 3 shifts). Again, each and everyone of them had a wonderfully friendly disposition - remembering our names and generally made us feel extremely welcome. Service was never intrusive but extremely efficient and friendly.

Considering breakfast was included, which was buffet style with a large choice from fresh fruit to a traditional breakfast we were impressed by the complimentary buffet every evening. Great quality and vast selection of tasty food and a special mention for the amazing desserts!!!

If you're looking for somewhere to just escape for the week, eat and laze in the sun then you couldn't go far wrong if you spend a week at the Annabelle.

Booked 10 nights b&b at annabelle, were upgraded to include evening buffet on arrival at no cost to us. hotel was clean and tidy, staff always helpful, cheerful and happy to chat and join in the 'banter', especially Andreas in the dining room, and Daniel in the Grotto bar with whom we had a good rapport throughout our stay.
Having read a few bad reports about sunbeds, decor, rooms, etc, before we left I was a little concerned, fortunately none of these were a reflection of our stay.

However, tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom would have been welcome, also a charge of 15 euros a day to store water, etc, in the minibar is an unwelcome first for me!!!
Drinks and snacks not cheap at bars in hotel, but no more than other similar hotels I have stayed at.

The food choice for evening buffet was fresh, plentiful and of superb quality, having sampled it on our 3rd night we ate their for the remaining 7 and were pleasantly surprised every time.

The issue of sunbeds at the pool was not a problem for us, 6 in our party and we always found beds at pool or beach, beach not the largest or sandiest, but safe and adequate.

Location of Hotel is excellent for wandering into town of an evening, also bus stops right outside, plus we were able to park our hire car in secure hotel car park.

All in all a great hotel and would recoomend to anyone.

Just returned from Annabelle Hotel. We were so worried before arriving after having read the reviews, but we neednt have worried. We were met in the lobby by Crystalla, who was wonderful. She put us at ease immediately and showed us to our room, which although, on the ground floor had a lovely view of the rear garden and a seaview beyond. The room was clean, but dated. No 'wow' factor here. We asked for robes which were promptly brought. The rest of the staff were absolutely fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. They are kind, warm, friendly and helpful at all times. In fact, I think they are pleased if you make a request for anything.

Demetrios, the restaurant manager helped to make our stay enjoyable. Judit in the lobby bar is a lovely girl, with always a smile on her face.

I dont think the hotel is 5* as it lacks the little touches of luxury. There is no tea and coffee facilities in the room, no bucks fizz at breakfast, no chocolate on the pillow. The evening meals are very good. Unlike some of the comments, I always found the food hot and delicious. Unfortunately, the breakfasts are poor, not much choice. tasteless and lacking variety, not what you would expect for a 5* hotel. I only went to breakfast twice.

Our 12 year old loved the Teens club with Zac. He took them to the waterpark, cinema, bowling and various watersports.

I did tell Chrystalla that I was unhappy with the fridge charge. This is ridiculous, never been charged before in any hotel, any country, whether it has been a 3* or 5*. So she compromised, emptied the mini bar from it, and only charged us 15 euros for the whole of our stay. Its almost like saying, 'theres a bed here but we are gonna charge you for using it'. They need to stop this nonsense. Overall, we had a lovely holiday, A cake in my room for my birthday was a lovely touch. Coming round the pool area with fruit was also a nice touch.

Never had any trouble getting a sunbed, even if it was afternoon, we always managed to get one somewhere, although a lot of them are broken and need either repairing or removing.
I would return to the Annabelle and I just hope Chrystalla and demetrios are there to welcome us!

Apart from being horrendously expensive to eat and drink outside of your initial booking, this hotel is friendly, helpful and clean. The fact that you can use the facilities of the sister hotel Almyra next door is an added bonus. If you book half-board the evening buffet is a must, the food superb, hats off to the chef!
The downsides are the locals that play backgammon in the lobby (very noisily) the locals who are the noisiest guests in the hotel at all times and the lack of shade at the main pool of the hotel apart from the umbrellas. The rooms are mediocre (I travel a lot for work and I can compare it to any business hotel) nothing luxurious about them, not even the toiletries are special.
If this hotel is owned by the same people as the Anassa, they should take note that the difference in quality is so extreme that the Annabelle falls into the bracket of package holiday not luxurious 5 star!

Great room, location and service! Thanks to the receptionists and especially to Mr. Gougousakis George, who with his kindness and knowledge around the hotel and the city of Paphos, helped my family and I to find anything we thought of easily!! I highly recomend to ask for him at your arrival.
