"Warning: I’m a self-confessed hotel snob (haha!) when it comes to hotels/holidays, so this is subjective to my view/preferences. I booked this hotel all-inclusive last minute to attend a wedding in late October (during COVID-19 pandemic) so there may have been a lot of things that had been taken away/changed due to this. Room 443, 4th Floor - I had a twin room which was comfortable, the beds are on the firm side but I had some decent sleep. It had a mini fridge with nothing inside, not even bottled water. You have to lock it to keep it closed, otherwise it will defrost & leak. There’s a wardrobe with built in mirrors, draws & 5 coat hangers. TV with limited English speaking channels (not that it mattered as I was out all the time). The safe didn’t work, or at least wasn’t easy to use & very old so I didn’t use it. I had a reasonable sized bathroom with a lovely rainfall shower (favourite part of the room!). Balcony facing the main road, the chairs are very old & need replacing (split wood on the arms). Overall, the room was clean & comfortable...nothing to rave about. The staff are friendly, especially the blonde haired lady who usually worked at the pool bar. And the head barman was very friendly too. Good selection of drinks, both local & premium branded, but limited cocktail selection. The pool area is ok, average sized. Sun loungers are plastic & dated, they could do with being replaced. There is a FANTASTIC little beach at the bottom of the hotel with beautifully clear water. There’s sun loungers there, but I don’t think they’re part of the hotel & you may have to pay for them. The location is good. There’s a Lidl opposite the hotel on the left & a short walk down to the right of the hotel, there’s restaurants & bars (be sure to check out O’Neils & a Greek restaurant called Dias Zeus). You can take a taxi to Paphos town for €8-€10 (you can book it at reception), but I would recommend a hire car if you plan to go out most of the time, you’d probably save more money & Cyprus roads are the same as the UK: right-hand drives & drive on the left side. The food...meh. I wouldn’t go all-inclusive here again as I mainly had breakfast & there are places that are close that do nicer food, but there isn’t that much to choose from (again, everything may have been limited due to COVID). I wouldn’t say this is a good hotel for kids/teens either unless you plan on going out places; the only thing I saw there was a small kids pool with a fountain/waterfall & a snooker table/table tennis in the lower floor. Whilst this hotel wasn’t amazing, I would more than likely stay here again just because the staff were really nice & the location was ok. Thanks for a nice stay :)"
"First time to Cyprus and didn’t know which hotel to choose. We decided on this hotel as it had its own beach where many more expensive hotels did not. It was clean and well maintained. All staff were lovely and helpful. We decided on bed and breakfast only as we wanted to explore round Pafos and eat out at various places or stay in and sit on our balcony watching the amazing sunset after buying meats, bread and pastries. There was a little fridge in the room which was ideal. Would recommend the hotel to those who do not wish to spend a fortune. The hotel had a gym and you were able to get a massage which my friend and I had the day of our flight back. Very enjoyable stay and would go back."
"We stayed here for a week in October. The staff were lovely all the way through from reception to us leaving. the room was lovely very clean and plenty of space. We attended a wedding there and was looked after amazingly!!! Thank you Alex!! Big shout out to tassos also. Bar Terrance is a great place to watch the sunset with very friendly staff. Thanks to you all at venus beach"
