The Hylatio is a bit off the beaten track. There is no public transport and it is very isolated, there is a short walk into the bay part of Pissouri but not very much there a shop and a pub and a very expensive hotel very little else. Apparently it is possible to walk to the village up a very steep hill where there is slightly more activity. A taxi to the village costs 10 euro's each way!
In the hotel there is very little if zero entertainment, no television, there is quite loud unpleasant music played around the pool during the day. Throughout the hotel area there is a mixture of bad smells from drains!
I do not think I have ever encountered a more unhelpful reception, if you can get anyone at all to respond for requests for help they are really very poor. I asked where could I hire a car, was told "see the rep", I asked for directions to the village and was told "see the rep!"
The rep was ok but sold tours like they all do! At vastly inflated prices. e.g trip to Kyrenia North side of the island....69 euros, price in paphos same tour 29 euros!
Extras, lots of extras, ,no television, internet an 5 euros for about an hour, extra for air conditioning.
Electricity/ door lock. As with a lot of hotel rooms the door key had to be placed in a slot to enable electricity supply. A few points with this, on entering the room it is difficult to find slot in pitch dark! On locking room when going to sleep you have to take key out then in total darkness find key hole and lock door before returning key to put light back on again! My wife managed to get it down to locking the door in the dark to 11 seconds.
Car hire is a must and there is a place near the hotel where a car can be hired from.
If you hire from the airport take care as the hotel would be very very difficult to find in the dark, no street lighting and no illuminated hotel name sign!
Self catering facilities were ok except the frying pan provided was still covered in fat from what ever the las occupants had been frying! The fridge was so noisy we had to turn it off at night!
