We stayed here for 1 week with our 2 year old son. The hotel was very nice but the rooms are small & not 5 star standard. The TV is antique. We stayed in a sea view room which had a great view. Breakfast was good but evening meals were not so good. they cook similar food each night but give it a different name.They have a childs menu available which is good for a few days but gets repetitive after 1 weeek.
I would like to mention Markos who works there as a porter he is a good guy very friendly & helpful.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for taking the time to write about Almyra and your recent stay with us. We take feedback seriously and aim to improve.

We are seriously looking into updating our TV sets and hope that we can do it soon. Regarding the dining options, please allow us to clarify that in Almyra we usually have 3 restaurants open for dinner, almost every night. The buffet (which was a complimentary offer for this year for Sea view rooms), is only one option. Otherwise between Notios (asian-mediterranean fusion) and Ouzeri (Cypriot meze taverna) we aim to satisfy most palettes -not to mention Room Service. Please accept our apologies if the complimentary dinner did not meet your expectations every night, but between the other restaurants and the restaurants in Annabelle (next-door sister hotel) we would expect you to have been satisfied with the options.

We will look into the buffet themes and try and upgrade there too, though. Thank you for your recent visit and we hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.

Best regards,
Almyra team

I've been at Almyra for a company trip, so fortunately i didnt'pay - the hotel is expensive. The hotel has some qualities: the position, just in front of the sea, the architecture, and the food. But has three big problems: 1. the hotel beach is very, very small. I think that the original beach has been covered by the walkin path the goes along the big hotels. 2. so, the hotel would need a big central swimming pool surrounded by many sun beds. But the actual central swimming pool is not that big, and at nine o'clock the beds are already taken. Yes, there are other sunbeds in the garden, but, i mean, I'm in Cyprus for the sea, not for the gardn. 3. The rooms in the back: a part from he fact that mine was worse than the twin one on the seaside (furniture, tv, bathromm, ecc), but on friday and saturday night it was IMPOSSIBLE to sleep until 4 because of the noise of a disco. I called the recetpion at 2, and they answered they were calling the police, because many other rooms were calling, but nothing happened. The same on saturday. I went to the reception complaining, but they answered that the police is corrupted by the manager of the disco. And that's is not accetable. So I would'nt suggest this hotel to friends.

We have just returned from a week with our 6 month old baby and whilst the Almyra is undoubtedly perfect for families, I am not too sure i would want to go again.

The good:
- You can preorder a whole host of items for babies which were in the room on arrival, and baby food can be made from scratch which is amazing as I am not a fan of jar food! (be warned that this isn't part of the half board option!)
- The staff are incredible - a special mention goes to Lucas who runs a tight ship in Mosaics, but his attention to detail was outstanding, Elena in Notios and Artur and Sandor by the pool - all 3 went out of their way to make our holiday as relaxing as possible
- The creche staff Amy and Mel made me feel completely at ease at leaving our baby with them - this is something i have never done before but i am SO pleased i did. Not only did our baby have a brilliant time and was so happy, but my husband and i managed to get away from the main pool (or as i would call it - the kids pool in that it is rammed with kids) and chill by the adults pool - heaven! The food there is sublime and just SO nice relaxing in peace and quiet for a few hours. If we were to return the creche is probably the main reason!
- The spa and adults area (although try and get a room that isn't below the gym - listening to someone on the treadmill whilst trying to relax was a bit annoying but the treatment was incredible

The bad:
- The beds are very uncomfortable and pillows horrid - that said ,when we complained the staff did all they could to help us and a mattress topper definitely improved the situation.
- The rooms are ok - the bathrooms definitely need a refurb (as do some of the common areas), but for the price for a night, they should definitely be better
- The food is pretty good - though the half board buffet in Mosaics has a different theme each night, but the food seemed pretty similar
- Cats - I know its the med, but there were lots of cats hanging about - i hate them so like to prewarn others!
- This might be a selling point for others, but it is a family friendly hotel - but be wary of going during school holidays - we overlapped for a few days and the number of children is incredible - so if you want a more peaceful time, opt for outside of the school holidays!
- Final moan - a few nights there were "events" on the premises one of which had music blaring until 1am - so sleeping proved difficult.

All in all we did have a wonderful time, and as i said, any complaints we had were dealt with efficiently. The service really is very good and if you can get a good deal (www.bookcyprus.com ) then it is probably worth the trip.

Room Tip: opt for a sea view room inland is loud

Dear Guest,

thank you so much for coming to Almyra for your recent holiday break. Feedback is very important to us and we welcome your comments.

Please rest assured that all your great comments about our service will be passed on to our team, as we feed off from kind words like yours, to continue our efforts to provide personalised service.

All your points will be taken into consideration (and I'm not just saying that), as we want to improve in all these areas you mentioned. We will look into a softer mattress for future orders, and the same goes for the pillows. We will have another look on items that appear more than once over the week on our buffet, and will definitely try to collect the cats for a local pet group that welcomes them. We do this every year, more than once.

We are really pleased that you left with an overall positive view of Almyra and would welcome the opportunity of seeing your family back. Please feel free to contact us directly when you make your next booking (mentioning this review), so that we can do something more to thank you for your feedback.

Best regards,

Almyra Management

Was travelling with my wife and 5 month old daughter. Despite our very first impression being slightly negative (being left with our bags by the taxi but no-one to help us for a minute or two) the staff members in the hotel are very friendly and helpful.

We pre-ordered many (free) baby items before arriving (cot, baby gym, steriliser, kettle, bottle warmer, baby bath etc) which were clean and waiting in our room on arrival. They had made the connection and provided us with details of the creche on arrival (which is available from 4 months old, but we didn't use it in the end).

They're clearly used to having children around and made us feel relaxed on only our second holiday with our daughter. In fact, there were many children around, although that shouldn't put off those without them as there is an adult's only pool and restaurant, all by the spa.

Slight gripes we had were (i) that the bed and pillows were not the most comfortable (although we did not ask to have them changed), (ii) the half board option we had only allows you to eat in the Mosaic restaurant, which serves (albeit decent and varied) a buffet and (iii) the hotel had various events on at night, which were loud, including a wedding on our final night which turned off the music after 1am. The staff did warn us of this in the afternoon, but we weren't given much choice in the matter.

Rooms are clean and equipped with the usual amenities, and the wifi is pretty reliable and quick.

Location great, 5 mins from the bars and restaurants of Paphos, and a 10-15 min walk from the fort and archaelogical site.

Main pool large enough and sun loungers well spaced out with attentive service from the pool attendants and plenty of shade if required.

Definitely pay extra to have a sea view as we met other guests who had endured sleepless nights due to clubs on the street-side of the hotel. During the evening, you can also hear motorbikes speeding up the main street, which is quiet enough on the sea side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a sea view to avoid street noise

Highly recommended 5 star hotel. We have no kids so well worth asking for room in adults area near the spar, and get down there early as sunbeds limited in this part.

If we had young kids it would be a perfect place as they have a huge child friendly pool.

Service great all round and staff we had were just lovely.

We arrived on Friday and stayed for 12 days. Our room was overlooking the hotel car park, which was not very nice, but we were not expecting anything better, since we booked inland view. The room itself was very comfy but modern in the same time. I am very fussy with cleanliness, but I have to say that the room was spotless. There was a bit of noise from the road during the weekend, but managed to sleep ok throughout our stay. The hotel had a lot of kids, but still managed to have a great time enjoying ourselves at the spa pool, which was for adults only. The cocktails prepared by Lisi there were excellent and she was very attentive. A bit of sun, cocktails and a huge sun lounger was all we needed. The food was also excellent, with Elena being amazing. Psemek was also very attentive. The traditional taverna was the romantic highlight of our stay, the food there is simple but fresh and tasty, even the cook came out to see us and ask how the food was. Also the manager really looked after us. I think that it’s very important to have the right people to the right post, and that’s the case with the manager. The nice lady in guest relations (Rana?) send us to an amazing tour of the island, she knew everything about Cyprus and impressed us with her recommendations. Overall this was our best holiday ever, really relaxed, had great food and even managed to explore the ancient ruins nearby. Well done to the management for the selection of staff and facilities available.
