Spent a highly enjoyable week at the Almyra and this is definitely one of the best hotel experiences I have had in a very long time.
It was our first hotel holiday with our 18 month old daughter and this is a top notch hotel for families with young children. The Baby Go Lightly service is a great idea and the creche is first rate. We also took advantage of the babysitting service. All of these things made the holiday more enjoyable for all of us.
The most striking thing about the hotel is the very high quality of the staff. Incredibly personable and genuine. Service is first rate - attentive but unobtrusive. They dealt brilliantly with everything when our daughter had a fall and had to be rushed to hospital and were very caring throughout the stay. The front deskteam were great and helped with everything we threw at them.
The hotel also has the best restaurants we experienced in Paphos - Notios and Ouzeri are great (not cheap but you get what you pay for). Breakfast had lots of options and was of a high quality. Didn't experience the issue over coffee that one reviewer had!
Bedrooms are pretty good - we took a garden terrace room which is great value and in hindsight it is essential to have a terrace or balcony if you have small children. The garden rooms do face the road but it was not a big issue as far as we were concerned and, importantly, we couldn't hear it at night. Free wifi is a massive plus and excellent TV channels for the kids.
General hotel facilities are also of a high standard - really good spa and the main pool is fantastic for children with a very shallow end. It is also often covered and there is a nice mix of sunshine and shade poolside. The gardens overlooking the sea look good for sunworshippers seeking peace and quiet. The lobby area and bar are very nice (Andreas mixes a mean cocktail). Again on the kids theme, the small playground, whilst a bit basic, provides a welcome distraction.
If you are a family with children below school age I cannot recommend the Almyra highly enough. A hotel that allows you to relax! We rarely go to the same place twice but Almyra may be the exception.
