We arrived at the hotel on the hottest June day since records began, and when shown to our room relished in the ice cold air con. The suite was very basic, with little furniture. The bedroom large and airy with a fabulous en suite with walk in shower and bath. The extra bed in the lounge area was disappointingly a put you up bed, not a sofa bed as expected, and for a 6 ft 18 year old an uncomfortable sleeping set up. Sliding doors opened up to a patio which overlooked the pool and the most Amazing View of the sea and Paphos harbour.
The grounds are clean and well kept, and the pool despite being smaller than some, perfectly big enough for the guests.
Plenty of sun beds and parasols, and no silly towel games required.
The breakfast was good, plenty of choice, and the pool bar does great food, huge portions, for a reasonable price.
Paphos tourist area started at the hotel, and in 20 minutes you were right in the harbour area with huge volumes of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.
The beach was small, and typical of Paphos beaches....don't expect sand as far as you can se, move rocky coves, with a little sand, a seaweed barrier and then the cool calm waters of the med.
All in all, a great place...but don't expect luxury, this is a good solid tourist hotel with no airs and graces.
