I wasn't sure about booking this hotel, due to previous slightly mixed reviews, but I'm very glad that I did. Unfortunately not all the restaurants and bars were open in March, but it was still a great place to stay for a quiet break with a lot of sunshine (temperatures were around 20-22 deg C). Positives:
1. Beautiful room and public areas - recently refurbished to a high standard
2. Very good food in the Apollo Tavern (we ate there twice because it was so good)
3. Choice of nice bars, with good local wine!
4. Very friendly service
5. Very short walk to other restaurants and bars (although again a number were closed) - would particularly recommend Kastros, which is next door to the hotel and also for something informal the Captains Bar, on the beach
6. Great breakfasts (good choice of hot and cold buffet, fresh orange juice)
7. Got emails beforehand asking if there was anything they could do to help - that's good service
I wouldn't overplay the negatives, because they didn't in any way spoil our holiday, but for information:
1. Yes, the walls between the rooms are a bit thin and you can hear noisy neighbours (we were only aware of ours once, when they had a group of people in there)
2. The village is a 10 Euro taxi ride away (up a steep hill with a dangerous road), which is a shame, but lots of restaurants there
3. You don't go for the beach - shingle
4. It is a bit odd with the the two separate hotel buildings, but not a big deal - we had an Executive Suite with inland view in the East building and it was great. Bar in the West building was a bit better though! Breakfast was in the West building, because East building was not in use when we were there - but only 3 minutes walk past the swimming pool between the two buildings, so no issue. Note Reception is in the West building.
I thought the price of the room (bearing in mind it's a suite), drinks and food was very reasonable for a 5 star hotel - but obviously a bit higher than outside the hotel. It's not a "grand" five star hotel, but it's a lovely place, with great staff and great facilities. We went for 5 nights to "chill out" in the sunshine, away from the bleak UK weather and it was perfect for that. Lots of sunbeds, lots of sun, great food, great service. Would most definitely go again.
Flew to Paphos - about 20 minute taxi ride (arranged by the hotel).

We popped in for lunch whilst driving through, but very glad we did. The food was gorgeous, and staff extremely friendly. Reasonable prices, for such a lovely setting. Highly recommended, can’t really comment on the hotel facilities, however it looks worthy of its five stars.

Great hotel with wonderful staff, The team could not do enough to make us welcome and always greeted us with a smile and a chat

We have been coming to Pissouri since 1995, but the first time at the hotel, don't know why we have not stayed before !!

Just one complaint was the cost of drinks. and noticed many clients were bringing drinks in from the local supermarket. At the hotel local Beer was 6 euros compared to the nearby bar (grape and grain) at 2.25 euros. If the hotel prices were a little more competitive i'm sure this would encourge more to use the bars

Overall we had a great stay and will be back again next year

Thank you All

Room Tip: Pick a pool or Sea view room

This is a luxury hotel with very high prices based on the fact that it offers luxury service, quality of rooms and food. Also the best facilities for a luxury stay. The position is unique and you can enjoy the see as well the mountain view at the same time.

Beautiful hotel ! The grounds are amazing as are the staff and the service they provide.A very peaceful relaxing holiday . Would advise you to go half board as it can get expensive as are the drinks 6 euro for a bottle of water at dinner .. The Apollo serve amazing food but the buffet provided was not so good and a bit disapointing, breakfast was amazing . The rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable with coffee and tea provided .We would highly recommend this hotel as we enjoyed our stay walking around the grounds, relaxing on the beach front (which is a pebble beach) ,great service and very friendly staff .
