“first winter holiday 11January to 5 February 2014”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

this was our first visit to the Annebelle and I can't praise it high enough.
After just 5 days my husband was taken to the Blue Cross Clinic where he had major surgery the staff at the Annebelle from reception (especially Christiana & Chrystella) to the restaurant staff and porters were so supportive and helped me through a very traumatic time. We will definitely visit the Annebelle again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback. We sincerely hope your husband is well and has made a full recovery. We appreciate how traumatic your experience was, and ensuring you were fully supported and comfortable was our priority. Your thoughtful feedback has been communicated to Christana, Chrystalla and the Annabelle team which is delighted to hear from you.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you both back .

The Annabelle is just 250 metres from Paphos main front, overlooking the sea in its own lovely gardens. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Our room was on the same level as reception and was very quiet with a comfortable bed and a small terrace overlooking the sea. Linen and towels were changed every day and the room and all hotel and grounds was spotless.
We were on half board and took breakfast at the Annabelle. We took evening meal at the sister Hotel - the Almyra -next door for most evenings which was allowed without any extra charge. The reason was that the dining room was quieter and the food slightly better for our taste. There was a slightly wider choice.
We also used the indoor pool at the Almyra - which was very clean but small. There is no indoor pool at the Annabelle. There was entertainment at both hotels but it was really backgound loung music. We therefore walked 100 metres to the nearby Alexander the Great Hotel where there was entertainment every evening at no charge save paying for your drinks[ reasonable prices]
Most day we ate lunch out either at Paphos or elswhere when we hired a car for a few days. We had visited Paphos 7-8 years before and found it little changed.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms 260 -270 in the extension to the main hotel - only a few extra steps and very quiet.

We have been visiting Paphos for some years now staying in various hotels. Last year we went to a superior 5 star which was very luxurious but had so few guests there were more staff members than visitors and no atmosphere. This year we chose the Annabelle, we knew this hotel and liked the location of it with regards to the centre of the resort. We found the Annabelle to be excellent, the staff were so helpful, from the manager to the gardeners we found everyone helpful. The Restaurant manager and his staff gave us the best service we have ever had, and we have cruised over 30 times so we are used to being pampered. The arrangements for the tea and toast at breakfast could be better, but I think the guests themselves being pushy were at fault. All in all we thought the Annabelle lived up to its 5 star rating and will be visiting again.

I have been staying at the Annabelle for many years My first visit was in 2003 My last visit November 2013 so all in all I have been to the Annabelle 14 times. I have to say I will in 2014 find another hotel the standard has dropped and is nothing like previous years. the food was very poor not even hot, poorly presented.

Also although the staff are very friendly where have all the CYPRIOT staff gone ????
Its is nice to see staff from the country you are visiting and not from all all corners of the world.

I found the amount of people packed into the hotel made dining a nightmare and more like a cafe with very little service.

I have in the past enjoyed many holidays at the Annabelle and sorry to have to write these comments

My opinions are as follows: On arrival the reception staff were first class along with concierge. rooms were very clean and good beds showers etc. Bar staff excellent along with all restaurant staff. The whole hotel was very good neat and tidy right down to the gardens all very well kept. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff anything you wanted was available all done with a smile and a kind word. Restaurant was very busy but well organised. Food was of acceptable standard plenty of it. All in all a great place to stay value for money.
Now the down side the food was not hot it was warm at the best this in my opinion was due to the outdated way it was kept in the trays. The tea/coffee machines did not work well enough for the amount of people there. another two machines would sort that out. Noticed that when the bacon was running low a new tray full was brought out but the contents were put on top of the old stuff instead of replacing the whole tray not good.
Would I go back again YES and hope that these faults would be rectified.

Room Tip: No tips as I don't spend much time in the room

We visited the Annabelle on a package holiday in January. Based on the cost of the holiday we thought the hotel offered excellent value for money. The sea view rooms are spacious and kept scrupulously clean. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The only downside is that the meals are all presented on buffet basis and whilst there is always a good choice of food the experience is rather hectic and not conducive to a relaxing meal. This minor problem may have been exasperated somewhat by the hotel being very close to full occupancy.

Room Tip: Third floor is the best to get a good sea view.

We returned again in Jan 2014 after spending Christmas 2012 at The Annabelle.

Staff - front desk/customer relations (Christiana)/restaurant/bar - all very professional, friendly and welcoming.
Food - we were on half-board buffet for 10 nights - absolutely no complaints. Surely people who are not satisfied with this service should book a bed/breakfast deal and eat a la carte in the evening ?
Room - sea view room was smashing especially as the weather was lovely during our stay
Bar - yes, drinks are a bit pricey. I drank draught beer rather than bottle - better value. The entertainment was a bit hit and miss - some evenings very quiet with subdued almost background music. Other evenings quite lively with some dancing.
Garden - beautiful as always - I can understand why people do not venture outside the hotel as the surroundings are so blissful.
Walks near hotel - turn left at the back of the hotel for a lovely, flat walk to the newly built church.
Transport - used a local car firm this time rather that one of the major companies at the airport. Best value i have ever experienced in Cyprus. Firm is www.elephantrentacar.com - no excess charges and will deliver/collect to the hotel.
Local buses - day pass is €5 per day, €15 per week - pass will take you all over Paphos region including Polis and Laatchi.

Overall - completely satisfied with our holiday and intend to return Jan 2015.
