Pools are where this hotel triumphs – it’s even got its own waterpark.
It’s all about the pools at this place. On top of a huge, H-shaped one, there’s a new pool with 6 slides, added during a refurb in 2012. Rooms had a makeover at the same time and have a fresh feel. And there's modern dining, too.
When it comes to eating and drinking, highlights include an al fresco Chinese and a Viennese café. As for location, the hotel is in a quiet spot by a small beach. Paphos harbour is less than 10 minutes by bus.

There's a trio of slides to try out, and the multi-lane one is great for a race. The waterpark is only open in the summer, from 1st May to 31st October. Just so you know, you will need to be aged 8 and 1.2m tall to ride the slides.

Our First Winter Holiday.
My Husband and I, have just returned, from our first winter holiday. We have been to Paphos, a long time ago, during the Summer, with our son. We had heard about this hotel, from a friend and it gets very good write-ups and replies, from the Manager, (impressed, with that.) We travelled on my Husbands 59th birthday. We only had a 15 minute transfer, a full coach load. We were very impressed, that the hotel laid on food, for our arrival. In general, we would give the hotel 100% and, would, certainly, think of returning. A couple of criticisms, That meal and our first breakfast, were cold, there is no water, in the rooms and no beach towels. Also, the cushions, on the chairs in reception, need replacing and you could do with some cushions, for the balcony chairs. But, that is being really picky and looking for faults. Our room was lovely, a nice double bed. Unfortunately, we weren't in the sun, although, it may be different, in the Summer. Our two reps, Charlotte and Kerri, were good. Kim, the Customer Services Manager, was very good, on the Monday, she arranged a special table, in the restaurant, for my Husbands' birthday. They gave us a bottle of the lovely wine, they gave us, the previous night, balloons and lovely flowers. In our opinion, the restaurant, deserves 100%, for everything. The food was lovely. I don't know, if they cater, for the majority, but, I've never had roast dinners, in hotels, before, the variety was lovely. We can't praise the restaurant, enough. It rained, a bit, on our first two days and at night. We walked to and from Paphos, a couple of times. Tea for two, restaurant, in Paphos, very good. The seafront walk is very nice. You need to go out the front of the hotel and walk down by the church. It was very interesting, watching them, getting the other hotels ready. We did get a bit of sunbathing. Again, we would certainly, give the Animation Team, 100%. Usually, on all our other holidays, the entertainment's rubbish. Here, they are amazing. We had Hairspray, a UV show, dancers brought in, so they can have a well deserved night off, the Lion King and a Swing show. We didn't bother with Karaoke. They had a singer/guitarist, in the bar, he was a very good guitarist, but, a rubbish singer. One place you really must visit, is Paphos zoo. We didn't know it was there. It's near Coral Bay, if we go again, we would possibly try to make a day, of it. We went on the Thompson trip, worth doing. There are some lovely places to visit, in Cyprus. I think the hotel had maybe, 95% British, except, at the weekend, when the Cypriots come. There were loads of couples there, for anything up to 7 weeks. We would give all the staff, 100% too, they were all very good, friendly and helpful. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We wouldn't go there in the summer, because, we like a sandy beach and to be able to swim in the sea and snorkel. But, we are considering, going back, for my husbands' 60th. ,More
Late review - Amazing hotel!
I know its extremely late but I'm booking my holiday for this year and realise how much I use trip advisor! This hotel was absolutely amazing I actually am thinking about staying here again this year and I never go to the same place twice. I'm slightly concerned that any other hotel wouldn't be able to top it! I stayed with my boyfriend here and we are a young couple but there was always something to do, whether it be day trips, staying around the pool, exploring the local area; if you want to party it probably isn't the greatest of places and you'd probably be happier in Zante. The biggest thing I look for when booking an All Inclusive is the food reviews, sorry but I will not be happy if my stomach isn't! My boyfriend gets pretty fed up of repetitive food and he loved it, there was SO much choice and it was delicious. Honestly if you're in two minds about booking you will NOT be disappointed. More
could not fault it
we stayed feb half term 2015, the weather was colder than normal for the time of the year,which made our choice of hotel even more of a bonus,friendly staff(all of them) clean room,good food with variety( if they got it wrong, eg;runny porridge, they put it right straight away, no problem).The entertainment team were really good and it was through the day as well as evening, no pressure if you did not want to join in!! would def stay here again (in the warmer months!!)More
Fun in winter sun!!
This was my 8th holiday in Cyprus with my best friend and by far the best hotel we've stayed in. We were in room G172 which was at the end of the long corridor but had wonderful sea views and you could watch the magnificent sunset from the balcony every night. It was a large room and kept very clean. All the staff work very hard to try and give you the best holiday experience they can, the whole team seemed to be very happy in their work, the bar staff were friendly and remembered what you liked to drink and chatted to you as did the restaurant staff. The food was very good and always lots to choose from. What makes this hotel stand out is the entertainment staff and program. The team do games and activities during the day and at night put on a great show with singing and dancing. I'm well travelled staying in lots of hotels around the world plus 25+ cruises and this is the first time that I've never heard any moans and groans from other guests.More
