We were moved to this sister hotel as the one we had booked was being refurbished. Unfortunately we had children with us and this is an adults only hotel. Yet, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Its a very professionally run, quiet, hotel with a lot of staff to guests. They were impeccably attired, polite, friendly and this is a well oiled machine running at top level. The rooms were clean, turn down service removed all used towels and replaced them twice a day. Very comfortable beds, lots of hanging space in the wardrobes, which lit up when the doors opened which was a nice touch. In fact lots of personal touches from the ducks in the baths to the hot milk with coffee in the restaurant. Food was fabulous EVERY meal and the views were glorious. Travelled all round south Cyprus but felt in the end that Coral Bay was the nicest part anyway. Should mention the Zoo, lovely day out, animals all seemed very happy with lots of space but the bus DOESN't take you anywhere near it. However as we were walking up the zoo owner went past in his car and took us in two trips up there!! Its a really lovely setting and there are peacocks strutting about all over the place, excellent, VERY clean restaurant with huge choice - Cyprus bus service are crazy not to provide transport up there.

Dear Mrs. King,

Thank you for your review of Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa. We are pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay and you were thoroughly pleased with the service, cleanliness and attentiveness of the staff, which are all vital elements that we aim for in all our hotels.

Indeed Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa is an adults only hotel, but as the hotel operated to assist its sister property, just for a few weeks we accept a certain number younger guests.

It is also good to hear that you experienced first hand the friendly nature of the locals with the owner of the Animal park.

Thank you again,

Kind regards,


Group Sales & Marketing Team

Its been a long time since we stayed anywhere with such attentive friendly staff. The hotel itself is in a wonderful location, and the views are perfect. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the finishing touches such as candles and lanterns and fresh fruit were lovely. The restaurant and bars offer a wide variety, and in terms of recommendations and attentiveness, the staff are prepared to go that extra mile for you. If we return to Cyrpus, we will pick the Thalassa without question.

You are made to feel like a V.I.P from the moment you arrive at the Thalassa, clean, stylish and very relaxing. The facilities are excellent and the staff are friendly helpful and genuinely want your stay to be as pleasant as possible. We had a one bedroom suite which was stunning!, equipped with all you could wish for and furnished to a very high standard, the sea views are beautiful and the location is quiet and very peaceful.
To sum up in one word - Perfect.

We found here calm and relaxing atmosphere, no noise, excellent food and careful staff. We really left fool of energy and think to repeat the same vacation for next year! The room was spacious with magnificent sea-view. Pleasant wooden floor and calming classic interiors; comfortable bed (what was very important for mine spine!), Jacuzzi and shower. The chef is making excellent food. We also had found very friendly and welcoming staff; separate thanks for management cocktails. I found it ideal for winter break and summer relaxation; as for couple as for alone traveling.

Spend a couple of days at Thalassa Hotel and we must say that we enjoyed it immensely. All the staff and Management were very friendly and helpful and always there for you.
The hotel just reopened after the winter break and was not very busy. This meant however that you got full attention from everyone. Breakfast was excellent and you could have anything you wanted, cooked to order.
The weather was very nice and warm, apart from the departure day, so this did not spoil our short break.
We will be going back, perhaps for longer next time.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking Coral Bay-it has a fantastic view.

We stayed at this hotel in early December (OK, I know, that was a long time ago, but I have only just started using Tripadvisor). It was brilliant, mainly due to it being peaceful with a limited number of guests. We got a deal (laterooms), so that B&B was only £50/night !!!!!!! with a room overlooking the Med.

The staff were all excellent as was the food for breakfast. Nothing seemed too much trouble and, combined with the lovely warm Cypriot winter sun, exploring the Island, eating outside at lunch takes some beating.

From a quick look at Tariffs, it seems as though the prices have risen, but nevertheless, if you fancy getting away from the grey gloomy grottiness of a UK winter, this is hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: See if it's possible to look out over the Med, but as the hotel is on a peninsular, a good view...

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa and that you appreciated the total relaxation and peacefulness that the hotel aims to offer all guests. With only 58 rooms we ensure attention to every detail. Being a boutique hotel and a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World are prices are always value for money although you did get an exceptionally good price on your first stay. All rooms enjoy views of the sea whether sunrise or sunset so all guests may enjoy stunning view for their private balcony.

We do hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back.

We stayed here for a week in October 2012. We wanted a peaceful, relaxing break in the sunshine in luxurious surroundings. We achieved most of this but that's not quite the full story.

We selected this hotel on the basis of some previous reviews, the hotel website and - most importantly - as it has Small Luxury Hotel of the World accreditation. Having spent a week there, I'd strongly encourage a revisit and audit by the SLH team as it is certainly not to the same quality as other hotels in their collection. And here's why...

The location is excellent - it is in a quiet - if slightly run down - area, it has a supermarket, a bar and restaurant within a short walk. There are lovely views from the quiet poolside and from sea-view rooms. Locally there is a regular bus service connecting most parts of the island and the price is extremely reasonable.

Onto the hotel itself... firstly, and perhaps most importantly, service varied hour by hour, day by day - from the highly attentive to the completely disinterested. The staff themselves ranged from helpful, warm and friendly to the belligerent and borderline sleazy.

The room was relatively clean but as other reviewers have mentioned, they definitely need attention. Five star they most certainly are not. We had a suite that had a lounge area, double balcony and two bathrooms - in effect, it was two connecting rooms that had been knocked through. The space was good yet the decor was bland. The furniture was tired, tatty and cheap. The bed wasn't much better either and the pillows were so hard and lumpy they felt like they'd recently been excavated from a local quarry. Simply not good enough.

Fresh fruit was provided on the first day and was rotten by the time we left after a week. Really?

The tiny in-room television belonged in a museum. The reception was awful - for both local and 'international' channels. For information, the only English-speaking channel was a news channel which was absolutely fine as we don't go on holiday to watch TV but a hotel shouldn't boast multiple English-speaking channels when there is only one.

The bathroom was small but acceptable, the coarse towels were painful at times and the toiletries were cheap and branded with another hotels details. Again, perhaps not the most important aspect for many guests but for an SLH property, it is poor.

Moving on to the Spa, we took one treatment and had a similar issue as raised by another recent reviewer. The male masseuse make clear his desire and intention to massage my partner. She wasn't happy with that and neither was I. When we requested a female for her, he wasn't at all happy, acting somewhat unprofessionally. We later learnt that he had something of a penchant for attractive young ladies and were informed by one of his colleagues that he made a habit of this approach.

The pool area was busy during our entire stay - there was a plentiful supply of fresh bathing towels, a helpful pool attendant along with a particularly erratic poolside drinks service. It could be twice in ten minutes or literally hours between service rounds. Short staffed? Or too hot to work? I'm undecided, but either way, it got annoying.

The pool itself is large and unfortunately is in need of attention. Many tiles from the mosaic pool tiling had come off and littered the poolside and the floor of the pool. Painful on your feet and piles of them by the pool went ignored by staff. There is no beach at the hotel and the access to the rocks and the sea is via a set of rickety metal steps reached through the 'beach' bar.

One saving grace was the food - the quality was excellent. A diverse menu, created by an obviously talented team who took care in their work, delivering innovative, beautifully presented meals. We stayed on a half-board basis and whilst drinks and food not included in this rate were expensive, there was a good selection and the quality and portion sizes were very good.

Breakfast was a slightly less impressive experience. We ended up setting our own table on 3 out of 7 days and fresh fruit juice ran out on numerous occasions too. Again, not the end of the world and didn't spoil our stay but it does impact on the start to your day. You'd expect issues like this at the budget end of the market, not at an expensive, luxury, five star hotel.

So, in summary, nice location and the weather made for a relaxing, peaceful break for us. However, our stay not without issues, some staff were lovely, others lecherous and rude. Food excellent and rooms poor. Would we return? No. Would we recommend it to others? No. Is there better in the area? I'd certainly hope so. Was it value for money? No. Is it to SLH published standards? Certainly not.

As a quick footnote, we were regularly told by staff, other guests and locals that Cyprus is more or less wholly dependent on it's tourist trade. You wouldn't think it based on the Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa. It could be amazing, but sadly, it isn't.

Room Tip: Aim for a sea view room

Dear Guest,

We have read your comments which are very important to us and all have and will be reviewed by the Hotel Management. Please note that the Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa take their SLH membership very seriously and aim to meet all guests preferences and needs at all times.

The hotel is located in Coral Bay which is a beautiful tranquil area adjoining the UNESCO protected Akamas peninsular, so this area is not at all built up and fortunately has development restrictions to maintain the beauty of the area. This is preferred by the great majority of guests who return to the hotel again and again.

The hotel has a number of bedding options available as each guest has a different preference and although impossible to meet everyone's individual taste we do try our best. Should the matter of pillows and bedding been mentioned while at the hotel we would have done our utmost to satisfy your needs.

With regards to the English TV channels, Cyprus is currently unable to receive BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV via satellite as used to be the case. Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa had already paid to become a member to once again provide these channels to guests but is waiting for this new system to become available in Cyprus and its coming very soon.

The toiletries in your room were of our sister hotel and this was a decision to promote our sister hotel to Thalassa guests, this idea may not have been the best and we have reverted back to using our own toiletries.

We regards to the pool tiles, this is unfortunately an issue that mostly everyone who has a tiled pool in Cyprus faces as after the hot summer months of 40 degrees tiles do tend to fall off. We are unable to fix these while guests are in the hotel and enjoying the pool services as this would mean closing the pool off for at least 7 days to fix everything. This is however a maintenance job that is done every winter.

We are delighted that you enjoyed all meals at the hotel and the stunning location.

Once again it is our absolute aim to make our guest feel at home and enjoy their stay at the hotel and in Cyprus and wish for all to return with fond memories. We hope you would give us another chance to extend our hospitality to you should you be considering a holiday in Cyprus again.

Kind regards,

Group Sales & Marketing Department
