As perfect as it gets
We spent a week at the Louis Imperial on the advice of a friend. "We" equalled two grandparents, one daughter, two granddaughters (10 and 8). The position (9 minute run/ 20 minute walk along the front into Paphos), quality of hotel, food, service and approach of all staff are exemplary, and we would definitely return. Two outdoor pools (one for unobtrusive breast strokers and one for children to submerge grandparents), and one indoor. The beach gives easy accessibility into the sea. Copious grounds and never any concern about finding five sunbeds together. Food is extraordinarily good. The entertainment team is enthusiastic, inclusive, and contrary to other reviewers we found the quality of evening shows just right for the family (a dire magician who was rather worse than Uncle Fred at a Christmas party was the exception). Above all this is a hotel where you will receive a very warm welcome. The staff are rubber jointed in their ability to bend over backwards, although to be fair they can have negligible complaints. Totally recommend.More
Peace at last!
We transferred to this hotel after already spending three nights at another hotel and what a difference it made to our holiday!!!! I would like to say a very special thank you to Elena on reservations and to the general manager Mr Paraskeva whose kindness and help made it possible! As soon as you walk into this hotel the atmosphere is relaxing and classy. After a very stressful start to our holiday we checked in to this hotel after having a fantastic stay there previously. I was still in the middle of checking in when we were all offered drinks and a very friendly welcome! The lobby area is very peaceful and there are nice big sofas to sit on in the reception area and plenty of tables and chairs in the bar area and more comfortable seating outside on the elevated terrace. Our room 315 was fantastic, very modern and clean with a superb sea view and nice wide balcony. There is a double bed and two single beds behind single fixed partitions on either side which I guess usually double as sofas if you are staying as a couple. The bathroom was clean and modern and had a shower screen which I always think is nicer than a curtain! The mini fridge is quiet and is stocked with a selection of soft drinks which are replaced as you use them if staying all inclusive. The air con wasn't yet in operation (week leading up to Easter) but is available from May onwards I believe by which time you may need but we were ok as the evenings in April are still a bit cool. The staff at this hotel are smart and extremely friendly and always seem happy and willing to be of service. The staff at this hotel always strive to go the extra mile and we were made to feel very special. There were lots of little touches that make this hotel a cut above in my opinion, for instance my wife found a beautiful bunch of flowers in our room when it was ready and this helped to lift her spirits as she had been in tears while we tried to do battle with the Thomson rep at the previous hotel! Easter is a great time in Cyprus as it really is celebrated and is on par with Christmas in England! There are Easter decorations along the road sides and traffic islands as well as within the hotel itself! One day we returned to our room to find a plate with two beautifully decorated Easter cakes on it! The weather during early to mid April is still a little unsettled, we had two days of cloud and rain and it was a bit cool but apart from that it was very sunny and hot during the day (about 25 degrees) but goes cool during the evenings although you only need a jumper or light jacket on. Because the weather is just starting to heat up the outside pools are still very cold! However there is a small inside pool that can be used by all until May and then it reverts to adults only. Having said this we managed to swim in the sea off the beach nearest the hotel and it was fine once you had got used to it, although it would have been chilly getting out if the sun wasn't shining! The waiters frequently come and ask to take your drinks order whilst you are sat around the pool area and the hotels section of beach which is a nice touch. The restaurant is huge and what I like is that the food stations are all at one end and the seating is at the other and fairly partitioned thus making things a little less busy and you don't end up with people weaving in and out of tables while you are trying to eat. One slight recommendation would be for the hotel to partition off the clearing areas a bit more as they can be a bit noisy when the staff are clearing plates and cutlery. These are dotted around and are sectioned off on one side but not the other, having said that I appreciate that it is a never ending job and all the staff work extremely hard and are really on the ball! The food here is fantastic and there is an excellent variety which I'm sure caters to most peoples tastes. There are local dishes alongside more traditional English food and you can get food at pretty much any time throughout the day up until when the restaurant closes at around 2130 ish. This time we stayed during Easter half term but I would still say that there is a good balance here of families, couples, young and older people and overall the hotel is still a relaxing place to be around! There weren't kids running riot and adults being drunk and noisy in groups whilst we stayed, so if you want somewhere that is peaceful but not totally dead I would highly recommend this place. We had also stayed here during August 2015 and it had not changed apart from the fact that the weather is much much hotter then and it was 28 degrees at midnight! The pools and the sea are very easy to get into then! If you want to get out and about a bit there are some shops, cash points, bank and various bars and restaurants within walking distance. The local bus service is great and it costs about 1.50 euros to get to the harbour one way, less for under kids under 12. If using the bus a lot during the day I recommend getting a day ticket which works out more economical and you can hop on and off whenever you like then up until about 2300. Once at the main terminus at the harbour you can get onto various other bus routes and they are great, the buses are air conditioned and very clean. Places of interest - The harbour, nice place to walk around, loads of little bars, coffee houses, shops etc. Great place to hire speed boats for half an hour or more and really good fun! Tomb of the Kings - Not bad, quite a large area, take water with you if it's hot or you will regret walking around here, not all that interesting for kids and they weren't actually tombs for Kings but they reckon local more well off people, it's really one huge grave yard but nice sea views! Coral Bay - the usual shops etc in the upper part of town then a fantastic sandy beach, great sea side restaurant / bar, sun beds are 10 euros for two for the day which isn't bad if spending some time there. A good clean beach for kids to play on. If hiring a car ( we hired the smallest for 22 euros a day, great for getting about and well worth it, roads are pretty quiet and same side of the road as home) it's worth having a little drive out. Limassol wasn't very nice although a huge long stretch of beach called Ladys Mile Beach which has various cafes dotted along it. Petra tou Romiou which is on route is worth stopping at for a coffee and there is an underpass to the beach. Pissouri is also worth a visit to the beach and the village up on the hill. We also travelled inland towards the mountains but ran out of time to get to Troodos itself, great scenic road with lovely Tavernas on route. Locally the waterpark is brill on a hot day and really good fun along with the local go kart track and mini golf, all within easy reach by bus or foot if you fancy a walk! I hope that this is all useful to some of you and I am looking forward to returning to this hotel and area with it's great scenery and friendly people!More
Stayed from 6.4.17-20.4.17 We have stayed here 15 times as a family and seen many changes for the better excellent management now. Great atmosphere lovely staff especially bar staff Panus, Liliana, Joanna, Aural & the restaurant staff Chris, Georgina, Ivan also all the excellent Mura staff who run the Asian restaurant attached to the hotel we ate twice their during our stay as usual. Great customer service from all the reception staff & cleaner who does our room over the years always greeted with a smile bless her very efficient. The food is excellent plenty to choose from but only 1 week with repeated food not a problem as all excellent so whatever you didn't have your first week just have different the second week. We had lunch out as we prefer to do so. This Hotel always feels so welcoming it has a charm of its own great location, to see the rest of the island Paphos is a great base to start exploring the island. This Hotel has Many repeat guests so this speaks for itself from families to single travellers to couples. We will be returning again same time as usual in March/April We have been in the summer too we have stayed 3 weeks at a time in the past but not anymore as school has to be a consideration these days. See you all next year xxxx More
This hotel is excellent, the staff, the service, the rooms, the pool area, the bars, the children's entertainment, the location, the food, the cleanest of the whole complex there is nothing I would complain about and I would definitely return and recommend this hotel to anyone. One thing which I think could be better is the games room for the kids but that is the only thing. One thing which we have never experienced is that the management come to see everyone off and say goodbye which I think is a great touch,so go and experience the great hotel and have a great holiday.More
Lovely stay but not quite as good as last year!
As returning guests we knew that we would have a fabulous holiday staying at this lovely hotel and because we enjoyed the stay so much last year we decided to go all inclusive this year, knowing that the food and drink would be of a high standard. We were not disappointed! Fabulous cocktails and great selection of food to suit all tastes. We asked for the same beautiful sea view room and we were lucky to get our request. Thank-you. The kids club this year was also brilliant and my daughter really enjoyed it with Gaz being entertaining and friendly. He is a credit to the hotel and I hope he stays. The other team members could learn a lot from his easy nature and courteous, professional approach. Two real disappointments this year though: We found the evening entertainment shockingly poor. The only decent one all week was the Irish dancing and another dance show featured on the same night. The in house entertainment team tried to perform Grease on one night and it was very tongue in cheek and whilst I'm sure they did their best, in my opinion was not of the standard most guests would appreciate! The suppossingly professional magic show was just awful. The management really need to sort this out. Where are the singers and dancers and fabulous entertainment from last year? If you like bingo and karaoke then you will be fine but if you are looking for something else you may be disappointed on this front. The second thing was the dangerous lifts. My 8 year was quite badly shaken and a little bruised when the doors started to close suddenly on her. Thank goodness my arm and the hand of another guest managed to stop the doors closing more fully on her. When I informed reception they seemed to take it quite seriously and I was under the impression they would sort out urgently. This did not happen and the lifts continued to present a danger for the remainder of our stay! Thankyou for the bottle of wine but an apology and a check that my daughter was ok, would have been a more appropriate gesture along with a warning to other guests at the least about the speed of the doors closing. Other than that we had a wonderful stay. The staff in general are fabulous, polite and friendly. The location is excellent and the desserts are to die for! We hope to return as long as the evening entertainment is improved.More
