“Perfect for doing nothing!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Not much to add to all the positive things everybody else has said - it's all true. Very quiet and relaxing, helped by the fantastic weather, just what we were looking for. We had an executive pool view suite and it was very large. Separate shower as well, which is always a bonus. We were on the end and managed to get the sunbeds directly outside our room so very easy to go in and make ourselves a cup of coffee.
Staff excellent, especially Iva in the restaurant who was always very friendly and responsive. We were on half board and had a set menu at night. The desserts are superb and as it was a dessert buffet one was never enough! Always a wide choice and different each night. We ate twice in Bacchus just for a change. There was a live singer in Bacchus, he was very good and it added to a pleasant atmosphere. Some of the food is very fine dining but we like that sort of thing. We chose to go here on our last night but my wife was a little disappointed. She ordered veal for her main course and it was three very big chunks of meat that was tough and tasteless. She did not eat it all and the waitress did ask if she would like something else and would let the chef know. My wife did not want anything else and there was no further feedback, not even an offer to take something off the bill.
Other than this the hotel is almost perfect with three minor points. Firstly, we were pestered by flies by the pool and on a couple of occasions they became so annoying we went inside for a while. Secondly, the toilet was not the most efficient at flushing, I am not sure if this was just a problem with ours or a general issue (one other guest we spoke to had a similar problem). And, finally, the hotel appears to have only one CD of about 20 songs from the 70's and 80's! It was played at breakfast, in the bars, at dinner in Apollo and we heard it by the pool a few times. You can only hear Careless Whisper and Nothing Compares to You so many times before being driven mad!
We would love to come back.

Room Tip: Executive pool view rooms are on the end and extra large.

what an experience the suite was amazing. the view was amazing and the breackfast was just top class. staff very friendly and everything one could desire was catered for.. robes slippers different towels for the beach balconies over the pool restaurants to eat from with lovely menus.. my one disappointment would be the spa.. The spa was gorgeous and clean and oh so posh dont get me wrong i just found the staff to be a little sterile and not lot of english. pleasent and efficent just missing a little something.. over all what a place..

Room Tip: book your spa treatments in advance

On the 19th November the hotel seemed quiet and was clearly out of season. We sat on the terrace in the sunshine, overlooking the pool, the view through the palm trees of the deep blue sea was stunning. A friendly Cypriot waitress arrived almost immediately, she was welcoming and helpful.

We chose a simple salad lunch with sparkling water, but from previous visits we know that the food here is good. Our three year old companion was on great form and the waitress rewarded him with a delicious complimentary pudding. It looked like a panna cotta with raspberry coulis, and it was delicious as we all sneaked a spoonful each! Full marks for the excellent good natured service, and a view that takes your breath away.

Spare a moment to take a drive into the charming, unspoilt, old Pissouri village.

My daughter and I spent a night of pure luxury here in November. Our suite was huge and perfectly appointed (just took a while to find the hairdryer) complete with jacuzzi bath. It was big enough to get lost in! and the balcony overlooked the pool and sea....amazing views. The breakfast was the best I have ever seen, just sorry I couldn't eat any more. All the staff were friendly and efficient and the cats just add to the atmosphere. I understand the hotel runs a cat care project so they are all very well fed, neutered and vaccinated and are friendly without being too pushy...we love cats so that added to the experience. The spa was lovely with jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Like I said, pure luxury.
We had dinner in the Hotel nextdoor because there was a crooner singing there and the food and the music were A!.
The only small draw back was that the pool was freezing but I ventured anyway and it wasn't half as bad once you were in.

Room Tip: I am sure they are all first class but the pool and sea view was super.

This was our first visit to this hotel and we were impressed with every aspect from the moment we arrived, particularly as for some reason unbeknown to us we were upgraded to a suite. I am not sure what RossR expects at this time of year but there were plenty of sunbeds on the beach and round the pool where there WAS service. Surely it's not too much of a fag to drag yourself from the beach to the pool bar occasionally! The fact that the pool bar was open surprised us because on occasions we were the only ones using it for food.
In our opinion the food was of very good standard although probably a bit repetitive. However how one can classify rack of lamb, fillet and ribs of beef, wonderful joints of veal and pork as low quality I don't understand. One evening the excellent pasta carbonara had almost come to an end and the chef must have seen the disappointment on my face as he rushed off to prepare a further portion just for me!
Overall the waiters were a pleasant bunch but there just one or two who didn't smile and shouldn't have been in the job. I'm sure they know who they are!
It was also a good option to be able to eat in the excellent waiter service restaurants in the Resort for which an allowance of 10 euros per person was made which whilst not a lot meant you could dine in these top class restaurants for no more than you would pay outside, The Limonaki was the only restaurant that came near to the standards of those in the resort.
One had to be impressed with the cleanliness, both inside and outside and the bedrooms were beautifully serviced.
Great location, great hotel. Will definitely be back at this time of year. Infinitely preferable to staying in Paphos or Blackpool without the lights as someone called it.

Room Tip: Would always ask for pool facing room as they get more sun at this time of year.

This is the second time we have been here and we will keep coming as we love it so much. The setting is idyllic being right on the sea and with beautiful trees and flowers planted throughout the hotel complex. The rooms are spacious, luxurious and the beds extremely are comfortable. The staff are outstanding. They are friendly, helpful and efficient but it would be nice to have one or two more Cypriot waiters/waitresses in the dining room to make you feel as though you were in Cyprus! The hotel guests are a mixture of ages - including several young parents with their children. The hotel is very children friendly and it is large enough for other guests to enjoy them without being irritated. This year we went on a bed and breakfast basis - we stayed three weeks and it was nice to have the flexibility to eat elsewhere for a change. We also find that 3 courses on the half board rate are too filling. We did eat in on several occasions and were pleased to discover that in both restaurants you could choose just one or two courses and were not charged the full menu. If I have any criticism it would be that the restaurants tend to have set menus and it would be more interesting to have a Chef's menu of the day. The cats are lovely and they tend to know who likes them and who does not. Hilary W

This is my 3rd visit and unfortunately the worst, the location is fantastic but the whole place was in shutdown mode. The beach bar was closed, no service on the beach at all, the evening entertainment was no longer provided and some of the staff seemed tired and looking forward to a break..... so I will not be coming again this late in the season. The room as always was good and well cleaned, the housekeeping staff are excellent but as mentioned in previous reviews the evening food was low quality so after two nights we decided to eat outside instead. There are many very good restauarants to choose from all within walking distance.

Thank you for staying with us again.
Unfortunately, due to bad weather conditions we had to close the beach bar a little earlier than usual. We do have two other bars in the Hotel, one outdoor and an indoor bar that remain open. We suggest that you book for the end of October, possibly the last two weeks, and this way the weather for the beach is guaranteed.
We look forward to welcoming you next year.
