We arrived at the hotel late at night after midnight so really just went straight to bed.
Next day we hired a safe 18.00 euro for a week a fridge for 36.00 euro asked for a late check out which we got for 48.00 euro. Globespan let us down very badly here as they changed our flight from day flights to night flights with no compensation!! but said they would try and get us late departure. Back to the hotel on the last day we went down for dinner and we were charged 36.00 euro because the hotel say that because we arrived late at night they are doing us a favour by providing us with a lunch slip for the last day we did not realise that we could not use this for our dinner!! As most of the reviewers will agree, to have to pay 36.00 for the grub is just pure cheeky! The staff are really lovely Tom, Steve and Ann were just great. We had paid for a sea view and we were very pleased with our room. The house-keeping staff were good and dealt with our minor points quickly. We loved the pool area and there were plenty of beds. However the pool bar closes at 3p.m. and you have to go up the stairs to the main bar to get a refreshment. The breakfasts were very poor but that didn't bother us too much the evening meals were very nice but only two choices for main meal ,starters were very good and for us, the sweets were very poor. At the end of the day we felt we got ripped off and it spoiled our experience a bit. Also just so you know you cannot get a packet of crisps or nuts at any of their bars as they don't sell them!!!
We have used Globespan for years for our spring break but will never use them again, if everything goes ok then it's fine but if things go wrong then they just do not want to know.

Had to up-grade our room to a sea/pool view at €9 per day. This was worth it, first room looked out onto the main road and the bathroom really cramped and dirty looking. 2nd room was great, it had a great view and overall a brighter room.

We booked what we thought was all-inclusive, but it turned out that the hotel only did light-inclusive?? Only drinks included was beer and red & white wine, my wife doesn't drink these so we had to pay for her drinks.

Food wasn't good, I think you only had 2 choices - take it or leave it. Breakfast was served up until 9.45, lunch was from 12.30 until 2pm and dinner was 7pm to 9.30pm. Whatever you do, do not turn up after 7.30 for dinner as everything is gone and you only get the dregs. Dinner was very disappointing, very poor choices, potatoes that were horrrible, vegtables that were inedible.
Lunch is the best food option - better variety, burgers, omlettes, salads etc..all served with chips. The light-inclusive didn't start until 11am, if you missed breakfast and wanted a cup of tea before 11am you had to pay for it!!

The hotel is about 3km to the harbour area, this is a lovely part of the world, I really enjoyed walking around this area, stopping for a few beers and watching the world go by.
Buses to the harbour and other towns, go from around the corner this was handy and cost €1.50.

This hotel needs a few euro spent on it, plus it needs to rethink it's light-inclusive and food options. I met some great people on my stay, the staff in the bar and restaurant were all very friendly, but I'd be in no rush back here.

My wife and I have just returned from the Agapinor Hotel, Paphos, not far from the daily market. On arrival at 21.45 hours we thought it was pretty basic! until we learned there was nothing to eat and there was nothing nearby where we could buy food or anything to eat. We had a drink in the bar then went to bed tired and hungry.
The following day after a pretty basic breakfast we spent some time organising water etc for the room and really finding the lie of the land. Not bad during the day, with a few restaurants up by the market area, 5 minutes walk. the market shut approx 3 pm. The nearest big supermarket was 15 minutes walk. The harbour area was 35 minutes walk. The best advice is to use the bus, which when coming back stops outside the hotel door.

Our room although a wee bit musty and had brick hard beds and pillows, had a good balcony which got the sun from approx 12 noon until it died in the evening. We were room 205. Sea view for extra money albeit the sea and harbour area was a fair bit away but you could see it.
Throughout the two weeks we were there the food became more and more monotonious. Hot breakfast consisting everyday of beans, tinned sausages, sort of bacon stuff and alternatively some kind of scrambled egg or boiled egg, not both. Once you got to know, you could ask for a fried egg which one of the guys would bring to you freshly cooked. At this point it is fair to say that all the waiters and dining hall staff were very good, hard worked at times but very calm.
Thanks to Tom, Theo, Gary, Bryan and Chris.
The evening meal comprised of cold salads and a choice of two hot meals which almost repeated itself the second week. There was a vegetarian option which you had to ask for but I suppose it was another choice.
The pool area was good and plenty of sun beds although the pool bar and any type of entertainment was not available. They did have two nights when they had a disco and a singer, not both on the same night.
They dont appear to have a no smoking policy in public areas which can be off putting for a lot of people.
On our final day we had to be out of our rooms by 12 noon. Ok thats normal but if in our case you were on the Edinburgh flight, your pickup time was approx 6.45pm as was the Glasgow flight .The facilties offered for showering and changing prior to pick up was the gym shower area which has no hair dryer for the women. Even asking at reception for the use of hair drying facilities. The answer was, The computer says no! A sad end to a holiday which at best could be described as fair. Big Johnny Adams from Tory in Aberdeen was our savior regarding the showering facilities. He let us use his room. Thanks Johnny! and thanks to everyone else we met in the hotel who helped brighten our holiday on cloudy days.

Globespan get a grip of this place. Either reduce prices or stop sending customers to Agapinor Hotel.

Extremely poor management of this hotel which includes not replacing lightbulbs, not being able to plug lamps in the foyer into sockets as there were no sockets available, not replenishing toilet paper, not cleaning blocked toilets, not enough crockery and cutlery, very hard mattresses on beds, lift announcing the wrong floor number, inablity to set a table for dinner, not lighting the candles at dinner, no flowers in the lobby, no tourist leaflets in hotel, not replenishing coffee, milk or bacon at breakfast, limited choice of meals, over cooked vegetables, no plug sockets even remotely near a mirror in the room and an unrepaired hole in the wall by the electric socket in the bathroom. Towels are changed strictly twice a week by a very unfriendly maid. The dining room appears to be in a cellar - a bit like eating in a dungeon. Hotel entertainment is of the poorest standard imaginable with a singer on a Sunday night who can't sing and a disco on a Friday who doesn't have any remotely modern songs to play. The hotel is very central and there is no privacy to sunbathe as the pool area is completely overlooked by neighbouring flats and it is well away from the tourist area in Paphos. I would strongly recommend that you avoid this hotel at all costs.

This holiday was just a treat for us to escape the miserable and long winter and the doom and gloom of our godforsaken country. We got the weather on a good week with the exception of a couple of overcast days. I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels i've ever stayed in and this is largely down to the staff who run it. I do agree with one fo the previous contributors comments about breakfast, it was a bit samey but hey it's breakfast! Dinner on the other hand was tremendous and we did not eat one bad meal. my only gripe about dinner was the fact the chef serves it up so you kind of were given whatever portions he wanted to give you. My other half is a larger chap and he got given heaps compared to others just cos he was big. The other issue with dinner is that you don't get a complimentary tea or coffee as you would in other hotels ive stayed in where ive gone half board and i thought it was a bit of a cheek expecting to pay for it. Deserts were lovely and gemma from Edinburgh take note - i loved the jelly and you didn't have to eat it you know! it would have been good if they had offered an alternative if you don't have a sweet tooth like biscuits and cheese but I have sent this suggestion to the hotel management. The staff were so helpful and friendly and I had a couple of mishaps where i lost things so a big shout out to Steve at reception. The entertainment was enjoyable, particularly Nick the singer who looks nothing like his poster suggests. Rooms were clean and comfy and worth paying the extra few quid for the seaview as it is a lovely view. As we went off season the hotel did resemble something like a retirement home, but you know what, I'd rather have that than screaming kids getting on my wick and as most of them were long term winter residents, they imparted their knowledge on the area to us and were always willing to chat. There is a nice wee market further up the road. The harbour is about a 20 minutes walk from the hotel and its uphill to get back unless you take the service bus but we didn't mind the walk. I liked the fact the hotel was well away from the real resort area. Pafos isn't exactly as hectic as Limassol but I could imagine it would be in high season and this hotel is a nice getaway from the bustle, it is also near the municipal buildings and the Byzantian museum and turkish baths- worth a wander about.
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel, provided unlike gemma you don't expect the moon at breakfast time!

Had a nice enough holiday but to be honest the food was like school dinners with very little choice,infact no choice of veg at all.Desserts were stodggy with artificial cream so we ended up sticking to jelly (yes Jelly!) Breakfasts were poor,no fresh melon or pineapple as I had expected also you had to have butter,no margerine on offer.We weren't exactly the youngest couple there but it really is a hotel that caters for the elderly with folk staying there for the winter. There were 3 Golden wedding couples staying which was lovely but you know what I mean by elderly.Wouldn't go again although it was quite a good location and there were no problems trying to get a sunbed.Just a shame about the food!

Stayed at this hotel with my mum and sister and had a FAB time. Weather was kinda hit and miss (although it was snowing in SCOTLAND so really couldn'y complain) but we still managed to fill our time :-)

Harbour was GREAT, very pretty and only about 30-40 min stroll with things to look out for on the walk down.(look out for a cave like cut out into the hillside just past the traffic lights and across from the ROMAN hotel, it has some great tourist veiw points (we generally walked down and got a bus no 11 back) to right outside the hotel.

Taken the bus into Coral Bay, beach was nice and went to a little GREEK taverna type place near the beach. (was next to a chinese pagoda) The food was great and we even got a free banana, lol. Didn't really think it had much in the way of shopping but good for a day at the beach.

Taken the service bus to Limassol for the day, you get this almost right outside the hotel and it was cheaper and without all the pick-ups. Went into a wee seafront bar/resturant just along from where you get the bus back home. (Watch out for the 164 year old in his disabled car wanting to pick you up at the bus stop, lol) It was VERY clean and done great puddings (we only went in for a coffee and seen them and desided we MUST sample) Oh and they done great Fresh squeesed OJ.

Food at the hotel was good, only had one night that i personally didn't enjoy but it was the chefs night off, maybe that was the reason.

All the staff were VERY nice and had excellent Scottish/English. GARY and Theo were great (resturant and bar staff)

Room nice and clean (we had a connecting room) which was good. Well for us maybe not our room neighbours whom i think got fed up with us singing paper roses, lol

Entertainment was on Friday and Sunday but as we were there on VALENTINES night it was put on for an extra night in the Saturday - WOW. The bar had a HAPPY HOUR from 10.30 to 11.30 even on there cocktails which were FAB - yum yum.

The hotel is situated in the shopping part, which was good for us ladies but the Euro was rubbish and everything did seem VERY expensive. Just up the road from the hotel was the fruit market and general hoiday tat that we all know and love.

This hotel seemed to be most SCOTTISH and ENGLISH and was VERY friendly, eveyone spoke and said hi and asked how your day was or what you had done which was nice. As it is a small hotel you get to know a lot of the other guest.

BEST FREINDLY HOTEL i've been to and hope to go back again (maybe with our husbands this time) mmmmmm
