Visited with my husband for a last minute break in mid-September. Chose on the basis of the website and trip-advisor reviews, and left a little disappointed that it did not live up to its potential.
The good - lovely pool, good location in paphos, being next door to the tomb of the kings, lovely food in the Mediterraneo and Japanese restaurants, pleasant outdoor bar area for sunset drinks.
The not so good - limited opening of hotel restaurants due to them being used for external functions eg weddings (the opening of each restaurant was nothing like as often as described in the hotel guide in our room), inconsistent quality of buffet offerings, misleading advertising of themed evenings (management did compensate us for this, but we saw the advertising again just before we left, unchanged) overcrowded breakfast restaurant, occasional poor/ slow service in bars and restaurants.
The hotel did not seem to be operating at anywhere near peak capacity during our visit, and based on our experience, our issues could only be exacerbated with greater occupancy.
Not of a comparable standard to other 5 star properties we have stayed at, and we are unlikely to return - will probably try the Four Seasons if we were to return. More
