If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing ‘Fly & Flop’ holiday then this could be the place for you. Our 2 weeks at the St George Garden Hotel Paphos were superb. From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly, helpful, and chatty. As a mature couple we were a little worried about it being described as ‘Family Club’ we has 2 weeks 12th-26th June and the majority of children were under 10 years, and seemed happy with the pool and kids club. That said I do not think the hotel or local area would suit active teenagers as it a quiet location. There is a rocky cove with a coarse sand man made beach. Having water shoes would be an advantage but not essential. Animation team work very hard day and night. The evening entertainment is all outside, starting with the kids disco at 8.30-9.15pm followed by either local professional acts or a show by the animation team from 9.30- 10.45pm. The Saturday night beach party incorporating both the St George Gardens and the St George Hotel (part of the same group) is not to be missed. Great fun! In general the evening entertainment is low key, although there are a lot of bars etc in Paphos Harbour. A return taxi would cost approx 12 Euros
There are various small supermarkets in the area, and it is a 5 min walk to the main road and buses. The Bus goes every 15 mins into Paphos harbour area or Coral Bay the cost is 1.50Euro pp for a single journey.
Rooms were once apartments, which would really suit families. Although the hotel is AI there is a kitchenette, fridge, kettle, tea and coffee supplied. On arrival we were welcomed with a bowl of fruit and a bottle of red wine....nice touch. The 1 bedroom room/apartment we had was very clean, spacious, with a very comfy bed.
The food in the restaurant was outstanding at every meal, local dishes, plus a different roast every evening. For vegetarians’ there was always a fish and pasta dish available. I could fault the food or service at any meal. The pool bar was great Stella was so friendly, and seemed to be able to remember what everyone wanted, and serve 2/3 at the sametime always with a smile.
The only negative we found was the weekend of 15th & 16th June when the Hotel hosted a ‘prom’ weekend. We were joined from midday on Saturday until after lunch on Sunday by approx 80 teenagers aged 14/15. They were some adults with them, although they seemed to keep a low key. Depending where you room was depended how much sleep you got that night, in our case not a lot! Also they were very full on in the pool and hotel. I understand this is the 3rd year it has been taken place.
Would we return, yes we would the weather was so hot whilst we were there (39 in the shade) that we didn’t walk or explore as much as we would have liked.
