The weather was disappointing with a lot of rain but the Entertainment Team did their best to provide indoor activities and should be given credit for it.
I felt the Hotel and grounds were kept clean and tidy to a good standard.
We were on the top floor and our room was clean and well decorated. The linen was changed frequently and the quality good.
The food was well presented and hot as well as there being a good variety.
The staff were always pleasent and helpful.
All in all a good Hotel at a decent price.
the reception were very helpful the food was always hot and well cooked The entertainment well not the best did get bit fed up of quizzes
The sunbeds were plentiful with cotton covered mattresses which helped in the heat. Never been to cyprus before but woyld def consider this hotel again if revisit
My only gripe with this hol was not the hotel but the flight home as firstcjoice plane was dreadful

Evening entertainment took place in a very large conference room downstairs which was completely lacking in character and atmosphere.
The entertainment itself was very poor, but on 2nd May a new entertainment team were brought in for the Summer season and things did pick up.
Our bedroom was spacious and we had a nice pool and sea view. Towards the end of the corridor though, you would be looking out over waste land to the sea. Furnishings in the room were acceptable but worn. We think it's in need of a refurbish. Bed linen, towels, bathroom cleanliness were fine (maids visit on a daily basis) but when you get down to the "nitty-gritty" it wasn't spotless (skirtings, carpets, tea tray, mini-bar etc., were all in need of a good clean).
There was a wide choice of food both at breakfast and dinner, which was perfectly acceptable, but was nothing amazing. Again, although the food was fine and the dining room was bright and spacious, there's still room for improvement.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The pool area was very spacious with plenty of sunbeds, some around the pool and some on the grassed area leading down to the sea. Plenty of umbrellas and comfortable pads for the sunbeds. At this time of year there wasn't much reserving of sunbeds, but towards the end of our stay it had started to happen.
The hotel location is good, about a 20 minute stroll to the harbour, either along the road or the beach paths. The hotel has probably the best beach frontage of them all.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and although we saw hotels which were much nicer, we know that these were far more expensive.
For what we paid, we do think it was very good value for money and we would definately return. On the whole, everything is good but we feel that with more effort from the Management, it could be excellent.

We were not disappointed - it was an excellent choice. We were blessed with a fortnight of excellent sunshine and enjoyed our walks along the beach promenade and playing rink bowls at a nearby hotel which has 3 excellent outdoor greens.
Cyprus is not cheap and goes to the Euro currency in January 08.

we stopped any staff entering are room for the rest of the holiday, the cleaners kept leaving the balcony doors unlocked even after we reported it, the food was ok i had to ask for a childrens chioce , the hotel is about a 20 min walk to the harbour, we enjoyed are holiday prior to the room breakin, but we put that down to good company of friends and family we wouldnt stay thier again, the staff were plesent enough until we were robbed then they didnt want to know. i was very shocked on how we were treated and also how are friends and family were treated it was awful.

All I can say is that the "Beach" family made a big story up as most of the information that they have stated was made up or elabourated out of all proportion. Yes it was an inside job - of their doing.
Telling all and sundry in the pub where they went to watch the football etc.

We are quite particular about our hotels, and were very happy with the standard of food. Breakfast had a range of fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, nuts, continental choice, full English, and freshly made crepes. Dinner had a very good choice of salads, soup, and good selection of main courses which were always hot. The speciality evenings (we had a Mexican and Chinese night)were most unexpected with a high standard of food which was very enjoyable. Desserts were quite varied too including hot puddings and custard. Drinks/wine prices in the restaurant were pretty good too.
We didn't stay in the hotel at night so couldn't comment on the entertainment, but through the day the team were enthusiastic without being overbearing. We joined in a couple of the water aerobics classes and French Boules games of our own choice without being harrassed to do so. Around the main pool tended to be families but there is a covered pool area with jacuzzi for over 18's which was lovely late afternoon, the surrounding garden area was also for adults so was lovely and peaceful to lounge in. There was never a shortage of sun loungers, and even when we went out late afternoon always managed to find some.
The location was very good with a selection of bars, restaurants and shops nearby or a pleasant 20 minute walk to the harbour for a wider selection and the busy bar street. All in all we had a very enjoyable week, and consider that we have had excellent value from the hotel and would definitely consider it again should we return to Paphos.

Room on 2nd floor was fine, sea view was overlooking tennis courts which got morning sun - in the other wing of the Y shape you were overlooking the pool area and sea view with afternoon and evening sun.
Hotel grounds extending down to the sea/beach are excellent and well kept. A bonus is that you can walk on new path along the beach area past other hotels - easy walking for "crumblies".
Paphos is an easy 20 minutes or so walk to shops and harbour area, or use a very frequent local bus service.
The hotel next to this, has 3 excellent all weather bowling greens - available to non-residents for a reasonable charge.
We only has one week but would gladly have stayed longer and hope to return.
Food - spoilt for choice - breakfast excellent selection - evening meal according to your preference - but would have prepared better choice of fish - and roast meat. Plates always hot and generally eating facilities above average.
The hotel bar was reasonable for the amenities - piano bar and easy listening some evenings [ the young waitresses were very pleasant and a bit of class.
We did not bother with any other entertainment - there is a basement function room which some evenings provides some kind of variety.
In the grounds, there is the french style boules and a push-board.
