“Perfection for adults that need a break!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Booked this hotel as part of All Inclusive package with First Choice very shortly after returning from a family all inclusive holiday to Tunisia when we returned feeling we needed a holiday!
This trip was as a couple and we waited 10 months after booking to arrive at the fabulous King Jason. We arrived late, following flight delays and received a warm welcome from night reception and were shown to our amazing 1 bed apartment. More than adequate for our needs and could comfortably self cater for 4. Sandwiches were in the fridge- a nice touch. The following morning we began to realise why the reviews of the King Jason were so good and why we met so many people who were there on a return visit.
All the staff from the wonderful management to the lovely ladies that sweep the fruits that have fallen from the trees understand that you are there to holiday and that you don't want to be bothered by anything. I can honestly say that in my 10 days there in June- July I felt that I was in heaven- everything was just there, done and if there was a query- answered in no time. When we had a problem with a hire car- hotel on to it, sorted! I fancied a peppermint tea- track down a tea bag, sorted!
If you have a busy, stressful life- this really is the place to holiday.
If you want to hide away in the hotel and relax by the lovely pools you can, no need to bag beds as there are always plenty at each pool with option to be in adult only area (no need when we were there, only few well behaved and well cared for children). No loud music by the pool, no entertainers, just peace- and when you want some music, headphones to listen to your own choice of sounds. Whilst at the pool you are regularly visited by staff offering refreshing melon, snacks or moist wipes and taking drinks orders- and always with a friendly smile. The drinks are excellent, fabulous cocktails, good lager, even the house wine is good- the sparkling rose is great for dinner.
Some of the properties neighbouring the hotel are a little shabby but the King Jason is maintained to a high standard, clean, cared for and safe. The ambience is great, the layout works well with distinct areas, all with a purpose but versatile and flow one to the other. After a few days it really feels like a home from home as the staff get to know you, your likes etc and the stresses that you have escaped back in UK melt away. King Jason manage to achieve this without you really noticing- but when you take the time to watch the staff they are working so hard and really want you to have your perfect holiday- they understand that that is their role and they seem to take pride and even enjoy achieving that. They are the King Jason, Andreas and Maria's greatest success.
We were happy at the hotel on our lazy pool days but also was perfect as a base for exploring. Buses are near by and frequent to get you further afield, Paphos harbour a 15 minute walk and the Old Town 25 minutes walk. There are many bars and tavernas around the hotel within an easy walk from the british style pub(if that's your thing) or a traditional Cypriot tavern and cuisine if you prefer the more 'when in Rome' approach to holidaying. The staff at King Jason are very happy to make recommendations and assist the hapless traveller with directions etc. We went out for a gorgeous meal on staff recommendation.
We hired a car for 3 days- perfect to explore mountains and other coastal regions- Latchi is quiet and beautiful. We had no problem parking front or back of the hotel within the gates.
I travel with an adult fussy eater- never before have I seen him choose food so easily, with variety and clear his plate at every meal whilst away- he only had chips once(and not at King Jason). I am more adventurous and tried some new foods whilst at King Jason. All the food was well cooked with plenty of flavour and made with quality ingredients- superb- be warned, you could easily overeat here- I put on 4lbs in 10 days!! I never saw uneaten food being returned to the kitchen- only empty plates.
This is a great hotel, it's not the height of luxury but does not profess to be- who wants to holiday next to pompous people anyway? This place is perfection for all of us that work hard, appreciate getting great value for our money and need to step off the treadmill of life for a while. King Jason gets this and ensures that your time off the treadmill is whatever you want/need it to be- but if you want pomp, awful cheap entertainment, typical all inclusive conveyer belt and noise, stay away- the King Jason is not for you.
Andreas & ALL King Jason staff I thank you, I returned to UK on Sunday feeling 10 years younger than when I arrived in wonderful Paphos. You played a big part in that, for me, you are the perfect hosts in my ideal setting when I need 'an escape' holiday. I/we will definitely be back.

Visited as a couple 22-29 June, our second visit after first coming in Sept 2013. The hotel, staff, food, pools are simply amazing. Since Sept they have refurbished the one bed apartments with new beds and furniture and replaced all the air con (easily operated and very very effective), updated reception, added a new reading/quiet room (looks astonishing and is the perfect place to relax and sip a cocktail or two), and built a new adults only pool/lounge/decked area (the kind of looks and style normally only found in spa type hotels)!

Ignoring the immediate surrounding residential area and very unassuming entrance and the style and class of the place hits you as soon as you enter. Champagne and cookies to go along with very efficient and friendly check in (Dimitri). Quick escort to your room with your luugage carried and you're off.

We found the hotel easy to get around with everything signposted if you need it. Anything you can't find or are unsure of, just ask any of the staff - they are all very friendly and happy to help. In the restaurant if you're not sure of what menu items are or how to navigate around the buffet, mention that you're new to the hotel and you'll get a guided tour of the food by the amazing Maria. Every member of the restaurant staff spoke to us and made us feel at home. Special thanks to Angela and Pepa who looked after us most days and to Josephine (I think), one of the 3 swedish girls working over the summer, who met us everytime with the biggest smile and a "morneeng" at breakfast. Foodwise, simply brilliant. Something for everyone, perfectly cooked and nicely presented, try it all, but leave space for the desserts/cakes!!! Drinks, cocktails, Keo etc are all good. Thanks to Sohal (?) our most regular waiter who smiled constantly and was the warmest, nicest person. We were all inclusive and everything is - no working out what is and what isn't.

The pool areas are all excellent but we chose to stay by the spa pool with it's jets and bubbles. It's very quiet here, the jacuzzis and massage jet bits are a treat, and a lovely guy, Robert, delivers drinks - what more do you need for a day relaxing in the sun.

Away from the hotel, there is a huge brand new shopping mall 10 mins walk away, and the harbour area with its shops and restaurants and boat trips etc is 10/15 mins stroll away. Both are well worth an evening walk/visit (or in the morning if you can take the heat!).

Lastly, we have Andreas. You will not have met a general manager like this anywhere. He is everywhere, fixing, organising, planning, while all the time being on hand to answer any questions and help you. Every meal time, he mingles (along with Maria) in the restaurant, talking to everybody and encouraging conversation with those looking for it while respecting those who are in for a quiet meal. Without Andreas and Maria the hotel would be good, with them it's very very good.

While we were there the World Cup was still at the entertaining point and although the hotel has no entertainment on site as a rule, they had rigged up a couple of screens in the lounge areas off the restaurant to show the matches. Normally the footie (including an England game) would make you think of shouting, swearing, lager etc. Not here. A few people quietly watching the games almost in silence, with a couple of drinks. If you didn't walk past and actually see the screen you wouldn't have known they were there. That's the type of place we found the hotel too be. Accomodating. quiet, relaxing, classy, comfortable, where you can be yourself and enjoy the finer things, while being in a friendly, warm, relaxed, part of the family atmosphere.

Thank you Andreas for having us stay again. We've decided this is the place for our week (maybe even 2 ) away from it all each year - no point looking anywhere else - so we'll be back soon and many more times after that.

Stayed for one week in June with my wife for a romantic getaway, no kids. This IS a great place to go as a couple, quiet and relaxing. There is no entertainment just a choice of three peaceful pools with very soothing music.

One pool, is just for adults and has some sun loungers in the pool itself. The hydro pool has different sections for various therapies and a jacuzzi. The main pool is a bit more lively with lots of sun beds.

There is one bar which serves many cocktails as part of its all inclusive package and beers, wines and spirits plus chilled bottled water. Pool service from the bar is good if a little inconsistent.

The food was really good, start the day with a reasonably good full English or have waffles, pancakes or omelette. There are also fruit juices, cereal and a few local delicacies too.

Lunch and dinner were buffet style with a range of hot and cold choices. The hot food was most hot which was good and there was plenty of variety. Had mussels twice in the week which were really nice.

Room was a spacious one bed apartment with balcony. Air con was good and cleaning a good standard. The room also has a fridge, microwave and also a hob and equipped kitchen which we never used as we were all inclusive.

It's a good ten minute walk to the mall and a total of 25 to the harbour where the bars and restaurants are. A taxi cost about €8 one way. The 615 or 610 bus goes from the mall to the harbour for €1.50 return.

For a relaxing break , good good and good drinks this is a great hotel and I will definitely return in the future. If you are not all inclusive the drinks were very reasonable, €2.50 for a pint and about €5 for a cocktail.

Room Tip: Room 13 overlooked the quiet pool and was very spacious.

There's a reason this hotel sits so high in Trip advisor and that's because it is absolutely fantastic!

The accommodation is perfectly fine and the room maids ensure it is kept in tip top condition on a daily basis.

We stayed all inclusive and we have not regretted it one bit. The food is sublime; there are so many different things to choose from and it is cooked to perfection every time. You don't need to eat out in local restaurants because this hotel delivers.

As for the staff, Andreas and his team were awesome, attending to our needs every time we needed them. Unlike any other all inclusive there was no requirement to wear silly wrist bands, the team simply took our room number and after a few days they remembered us and served us with no question.
The swimming pools were all great, the lobby, bar and restaurants were also befitting of a hotel of this calibre.
Seriously don't look further because this hotel is just about perfect.

My daughter and I stayed at this wonderful hotel 22 Jun to the 29 Jun. We were first to be dropped off from the airport and I'm afraid first impression was not good as the hotel is in what appears to be a residential area. However this soon changed when we were greeted with refreshments and very friendly staff who carried our cases to our apt which was huge. The food was terrific something to suit everyone and the menu changed constantly. Plenty of sunbeds at three pools and waiters supplying cool drinks throughout the day. Only downside is the 15 min walk to the harbour area but hey we are all on holiday so that's not a chore. We travelled with Thompson All Inclusive and our Rep Heather was terrific. All the staff were helpful and polite nothing was a bother. Thank you Andreas and Maria and hope to see you again in Sept.

Got back from the King Jason last Thursday and the only complaint I have was that we didn't book for longer. Everything was first class, the room, the food and most importantly all the staff. The walk to the harbour is 15 mins at most but there are bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk if you need them. We were all inclusive and the food was to die for. Nothing was too much trouble and you were made to feel so welcome. The pools are amazing especially the hydro therapy pool which we spent a lot of time in due to the heat wave we had. We stayed in B 201 and it was 5 star, the decor is lovely, the room was spotless and the bathroom was like something out of a glossy magazine. All the staff were lovely but I must echo what others have said, Maria and Andreas are amazing! I know it sounds cliché but we really did arrive as guests and leave as friends. A special thanks to Maria who arranged a special gift for my partner Jason. He really feels like KING JASON now! We can't wait to return again in the future and can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

Thank you to everyone at the King Jason for the wonderful holiday, Mary and Jason x
