Booked a last minute short trip to the Columbia Beach Resort in Cyprus. A good choice really as the hotel in almost all categories does a great job:
- Nice resort with good architecture and atmosphere in a picturesque place
- very clean
- most of the staff friendly and competent
- loads of small details that show you that this place is managed with heart and the wellbeing of us tourists in mind
- very child friendly
As said in the title only minor flaws to be mentioned:
- the beach is so la la
- the WIFI is not as fast as it should be in a 5 star resort in the EU in the year 2013
- the food is good, but not at the level you would expect at a hotel of this class
To sum it up, we really loved it and recommend it to almost everyone - especially families. There are not many hotels with this class and warmth at this price level.
As I was there for diving a comment to this: There are two dive operators nearby (Pissouri Bay Divers and Kembali Divers). Both can be recommended. But the diving itself is not that good in this area and also the coral bay they take you to is mediterrean average. The welcomed expection was the Zenobia of course - one of the top wrecks in the world.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A 5* Award winning Spa Resort on the south west coast of Cyprus, on the Bay of Pissouri. The architecture is derived from Cypriot roots of culture and tradition. The craftsmen used are all local and brought with them skills handed over through their generations. The Hotels merge harmoniously with the environment, like a chameleon, due to the local stone and wood used. The roofs are typical of the region. These "Reflections" are strongly felt in the interior warmth of the rooms and suites. Hebe Spa lies at the heart of the Resort with the 80m lagoon pool flowing right into it; Elemis is the main Spa range offered along with 5 treatment rooms, sauna, plunge pool, Jacuzzi, squash & tennis courts along with an aerobics hall and full activity program.Restaurants offer creative Mediterranean cuisines and Italian Gourmet, with fresh fish from the adjacent west waters. ... more less
