TAs a solo traveller I asked a friend living in Cyprus to recommend a resort and accomodation for me as I was going to visit them but wanted my independence. This was the brief: I want it to be quiet, relaxing, somewhere I can just chill out, enjoy the sun, feel safe and be near a beach. She found me the perfect location at Hylatio. I read some of the reviews before I flew which were quite conflicting but decided to keep an open mind. This was my 5th trip to Cyprus - but first time I have stayed in Pissouri Bay - It was everything I hoped it would be and more- I can understand why visitors return to Hylatio year after year, and so I hope will I. On arrival at Hylatio you are welcomed by Vlad and his staff and shown to your accomodation. The studios/maisonettes are set in beautiful surroundings. It is the ultimate place for relaxation. The Hylatio has a warm, welcoming and intimate feel. Vlad the owner and his wife Maria make people very welcome and treat their guests as individuals. They are happy spending time chatting to visitors and work hard to ensure their guests have a great holiday. They respect the fact that everyone wants different things from a holiday, but if you ask for anything I found they will be only too happy to help. The studios and maisonettes and pretty and well placed around beautifully maintained gardens and around a lovely pool. There are plenty of good quality sunbeds. The pool and gardens are well looked after. The accomodation is clean and there is a maid service 6 days out of 7. The accomodation is a good size, has comfortable beds and is more than adequate for self catering. You can hire air con, a fan and a safe deposit box. The Hylatio has a restuarant which offers breakfast, lunch dinner menu and a'la carte and they also offer an all inclusive deal which is good value for money, and which can be taken to suit the holidaymaker 3,5 or 7 days. There is a mini market on site, which is well stocked and comparable prices to supermarkets in the village. The welcome meeting was informative and Sue the Olympic rep was very knowledgable about Pissouri and the area. I found that Sue and Vlad and his staff were there to help but did not impose on your privacy, they were always accomodating, but were not in your face. Vlad and his wife Maria are owners of the Hylatio and work very hard and long hours, the staff behind the bar are Romanian, very friendly and happy to help. The bar is open until 1pm and is really friendly - you can sit in the bar and be entertained - you can still have lots of fun in a quiet resort - it's your choice. I found Vlad and his staff very attentive - they react very quickly if something is not right - The light outside my studio was out the first night and I couldnt see to get my key in the door - I told the staff that night, next morning it was fixed. When I decided I wanted to hire a fan he had none left that day - but later when I went to my room he had gone and got me one. If you wanted anything I found it was not too much trouble and Vlad would go out of his way to help and make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The village/beach is 5/10 walk down the road. You will find shops, tavernas and restaurants. The beach is pebbly but is a beautiful bay, has good sunbeds, watersports, and has a lovely breeze if it gets too hot around the pool. There is a fantastic little pizza restaurant opposite Joanna's supermarket with plastic tables but dont let that put you off - excellent pizza's and great value for money. The Hylatio has its own Greek night which is really good fun and the food is lovely. There are also greek nights at the Vine leaf and up in the old village - you will need a car to go there at night or 10 euros in a taxi. There is a little bus that has started to run in the day time. 9.30 and 11.30am. Pissouri is an ideal peaceful location and felt very safe. If you dont want to do anything but chill out, you can really relax in the surroundings of the Hylatio, but if you want to explore Cyprus it is perfectly placed to hire a car and get around easily. In my opinion the Hylatio is a hidden gem and is the perfect place for peace and relaxation.
