“Good holiday base”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

Very good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms clean and tidy fresh towels every day,linen changed frequently.Our room overlooked the smaller of the two pools and
at night we looked down on the entertainment area and could relax on the balcony and
enjoy the artists. Hotel prices were good. No problems with food (on half board basis).
All this contributed to an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
While we had no problems with the hotel the room descriptions given both in the
Thomson brochures and on line indicated that the rooms came with fridge,air conditioning,safe and water heater/cooler with no mention of extra charges for these.
In fact it was impossible to have a fridge (not permitted by hotel in rooms) and the other
items were available at local charge.Very disappointed by this and still awaiting a
suitable response from Thomson Group despite complaining to rep in resort and
writing to them on return. Be warned!

You could not find a better hotel for the same money!! Wonderful friendly people!! I had a perfect holiday..I can see now why people return year after year.

The hotel has a lovely pool and sunbed area but also its just a short walk from the harbour and the beach.

I would highly recommend a stay here!!

To put it simply, the hotel was an all round disapointment, from the room to the meals to the room cleanliness.
As previously stated by previous guests- the hotel is a 3* and do not expect anymore. 3* is not the minimum rating and you should expect more than what this hotel offers. Look further afield, you will find better hotels, same stars same price, much nicer surroundings.

Its your choice, but once you have booked, no turning back from this dump!

This hotel has been described as a home from home - and now we understand! Every single person there was British, tattooed, and happy to have beer for breakfast.
On arrival, we were met with the stone face of the least friendly of the 3 Reception staff and were given a room overlooking the pool - 1st mistake! Do not stay over the pool, unless you intend on going to bed by 12.30 earliest. The evenings 'entertainment' was unique... (which more often than not, was the northern tones of wannabe popstars in the karaoke sessions, really believing that they were the next big thing! Only for us lightweights, with all the cats in Cyprus, it just sounded like animal noises into the early hours). We did try to put up with it for the first week, and were then kindly moved to the other side, which presented no further problems with noise.
We noted no fridge in the room, but there was a water machine which for 9 euros, you'd get a large 10 litre water bottle for hot or cold water. No tea or coffee or any other facilities in the B&B rooms. A real pain, that you can't keep anything cool after you come back from the beach or pool. A family staying there, did have an apartment at the top of the hotel, where they did have facilities and I'd advise this if you have a family or wish to save money. That said, they did tell me that they were charged for the use of the air con unit - something we were not charged for in the B&B room. BEDS - oh my god! Who ever said a hard bed is good for you was lying! Or they had no back with spine movement! We had to use the blankets under the sheets to soften the springs. The TV was held onto the stand with a belt and for a hotel with all English guests, we were subjected to all Greek Sitcoms and the odd french cartoon! The towels were changed daily ( a surprise), but the same couldn't be said with the general room cleaning. Floor or bathroom was not cleaned daily, ants in the room and the cat that we swung on the balcony said it was ridiculously tiny - to the point where one person has to go on first and then sit, then have the table put out before the other can sit down - there is not even got any room for drying clothes. The Air con units are great whilst you're awake, but pointless whilst trying to sleep as they are so noisy (a great benefit if trying to drown out the karaoke sessions).
Pool was small and like a hot bath, but there is another one that's cooler, but it's in the way and has no loungers around it - it was not used. Loungers - as someone previously commented, the loungers do get 'towelled' by about 7.30am and the staff do nothing to sort this, but then there are people there that come yearly and know the staff well and have the place sussed.
We saw/heard of two accidents whilst there as the steps are slippy and inappropriate for elder guests or children. Children are not welcomed there as it is a regulars spot, or for couples who enjoy a bit of a sun worshipping (there are two sundecks that are really good for just the bathing), or those simply seeking a base like we were to see the rest of Paphos and the surrounding areas. The kids that were there were full of the joys of bunking off school holidays eager to get an early bird deal (and they really were kids that needed to be in school), with parents that thought the ashtray was the pool surround! That said, there is a small kids pool and a jacuzzi (kettle hot), but other than that, it would not appeal other than in price for families with small children.
Breakfast was interesting - with watered down juice, I actually had to squeeze my own grapefruit in the glass to get any juice in there. That said, many were happy with the breakfast as there was choice and always seemed to have something available right up until finish time. For about a week, we decided to forgo breakfast and just get croissants at the local store..
All in all, I would recommend this hotel if you can't get into anywhere else, or there's someone you've annoyed in a past life. You may love the sun and a warm bath to dip in and in that case, this place is for you. Its tired, in need of some serious tlc and updating, a few of the bar staff need their smacked butt faces cheered up a bit and the hotels need to look at the beds! The Manager is nice, but needs to put that charm to good use and make a difference in a Country where the Euro is out-pricing most of his repeat business. There is potential there, with a great easy location and a few good staff on reception (one of which is from Oxford), but i guess you get what you pay for and for once, we wished we'd paid more and gone elsewhere - but the money I saved will get me a good chiropractor!

I stayed at the Nereus from the 24th June to 1st July. Before going I was a little hesitant after reading other reviews, but I found it to be value for money. We stayed half board and the food was pleasant enough. Each night there is a different meal theme - Indian, Greek, English, Italian. I have to admit we did eat out on the English nights as I don't go abroad to eat a full roast meal or fish and chips!! The breakfast was ok, same everyday, a bit of variety would have been nice, but the fresh fuit was great.

The hotel room was ok, lovely power shower and huge sink in the bathroom. The bed was rather solid, which was uncomfortable, but I found a few cocktails soon sent me to LaLa land. The balcony was small but fitted two of us on there for evening drinks!

The bar in the hotel is cheap - 2 euros for a cocktail, 3 for a local beer - great value. There is also Sky TV in the bar, which is handy for local news.

The pool / sunbathing areas are ok. We tended to stay on the roof area, as that was the quietest in terms of volume of sunbathers and generally we found a parasol and bed each day free. The pool areas were busy, towels were laid down very early in the morning.

Hotel is in a great location to the harbour and bar street. Flairs bar is great - cheap drinks and always an offer to be had. Great meals can be found near the harbour, we had a 3 course meal with wine for 8 euros each, whilst looking out to the sea.

I would stay at the Nereus again, probably B&B next time. The staff were inviting and friendly and tried to do all they could to help!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Nereus Hotel from 28th June - 5th July. We were there as my sister was getting married. When we arrieved we were given our key and in broken english given direction to it. When we found our room the toilet stank even though we complained to reception staff, nothing was done. The balconay was a tiny, an absolute joke. The bed was so uncomfortable, it was rock hard, totaly solid! The pools were OK nothing special. Getting a sun lounger was impossible as people would leave there towels on them all day and night even when they werent there and staff did nothing about it.
The breakfast was not very good, watery scrambled eggs, watered down orange juice, and also hot dogs??!!
We stayed on B&B only as we wanted to try the local resteraunts, but on two of the nights we ate in the Hotel, the food was horrible, and there was a member of staff slopping what you wanted all over your plate, half the food I didnt know what it was and the staff werent very helpful in telling me.
The whole Hotel is in serious need of an upgrade! My two sister who paid the same as my partner and me stayed in a 4star all inclusive for a week, I couldnt believe it when i was at their hotel!
Staying at the Nereus put a downer on my holiday, it was great to get out and about in paphos, we went to the water park, which was good, all the local shops were good too, the bars at night were great, and can recomend RAIN on bar street, great place, great prices and great staff. Also recomend all the watersports and to hire a Quad for the day, lots of fun.
I would definatly go back to Paphos but I definalatly would not go to the Nereus.

We stayed at the nereus in May with our 2 children. Our first impressions of the hotel were "small" but we were wrong.
The staff were friendly and very helpful.
The rooms were adequate for our needs and cleaned on a daily basis.
There was entertainment in the hotel or the Papa George Pub (also owned by the hotel)
nearly every night. The bar staff were great and for 2euros for a cocktail you can't go wrong!!
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis but purchased a voucher from reception for 6 - 3 course evening meals for just 46 euros per person , when you consider we were paying up to 80 euros for one meal for 4 of us thats fantastic value.
If we ever return to Paphos we will definatly stay at the Nereus again, great value, friendly, family run hotel.
