Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were dubious about staying at the Basilica after reading some bad reviews. When we arrived at the Basilica at about 1am we were informed that there was an issue with our room and that we would need to stay at their sister hotel Paphos Gardens about 5 mins away. We were quite annoyed about this but the staff were so apologetic about this it helped to calm us down. After a night at Paphos Gardens we returned to the Basilica, we had originally booked for B&B but due to the issue the night before they upgraded us to AI. Even though the start of our holiday stay didn’t go to plan we had an amazing stay there. The rooms were clean and comfortable with everything that we needed. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel doesn’t have a lot of entertainment just 1 act per evening at dinner time but this was ideal for our family. So if you’re looking for a small, quiet and friendly hotel take a look at the Basilica.

Arrived to be told they didn't have our room (One Bed Superior apartment) and that they'd booked us into a "sister hotel for one night" Said no chance and so after a while they did find us a room which they said was the same but two bedrooms. Room was OK but can't see that it was "Superior" to anything. Very tired and basic. Shower was no more than a dribble all week and bathroom overall was in desperate need of decoration. Was also woken on the first morning at 7am by staff using leaf blowers and hedge trimmers which I complained about. Happened again on day 5 which I complained about for a second time. Explanation was it was not their staff but those working for the offices. Be aware that the "holiday resort" is not just holiday apartments but also lots of businesses, so a lot of the place is like a parking lot during the day. The only positive was the location which is very central but was certainly not worth the money we paid.

The resort was in a great location, plenty of restaurants and shops around the resort area. The Staff were friendly and very helpful. The food served was freshly made and delicious. The room had a good view, couldn't fault the cleaniness of the room. Great WiFi connection throughout the hotel. Air conditioning in the room was good. Good pool area. Overall a good recommendation to stay in.

The room amenities were poor and very dated. The door did not close without locking - awkward when key and electricity card connected. The table legs were wobbly and broken - dangerous with a glass top! Stains on the sofas. Balcony view was other apartments. The pool area has no towels! Who brings towels on holiday anymore? Breakfast choices were good. Fresh omelette station. Staff were friendly and helpful nevertheless. Location good for the seafront areas, but not the old town.

Great location for the complex as a whole, but not so much with our studio. If having air conditioning, a balcony, and wifi constitutes a "superior" studio, then that's what we had. In all other respects it was mediocre, though I can't fault it for cleanliness, and with no instructions provided, it took a lot of button pressing to figure out the air con, & my husband would've given up. We were situated in the "Erato" block. Our balcony didn't get any sun at all, overlooked the back access lane to the car park, back yards, and washing lines. Our towels and sheets were changed once in the week we were there. We weren't bothered about self catering, which was just as well, as the only surface for food prep had a microwave and toaster on it. Did use the microwave once, but had to lift it partially onto the cooker top for the lead to reach the socket. Poorly supplied, only 2 cups, cupboard under the sink completely empty, not even a dustpan & brush. Good sized wardrobe with plenty of hangers, but no dressing table so used the kitchen table as such. Tired looking shower room with nowhere to put your clothes, hooks on the back of the door would've helped. No permanent hot water, had to put an immersion heater on for at least 30 minutes to have a shower, longer when there are two of you. No light switches or lamps by the bed, not great if you want to read in bed, as you had to get up again. Our visit to the pool was short lived thanks to the boring unnecessary loud music. I'm sure we can't be alone in wanting a bit of R & R by the pool, if people want to go clubbing they'll go to a club. I was also lead to believe robes and slippers were provided, but as they were nowhere to be seen, I'm assuming this may be a misprint and probably only applies if you want to use the gym, but I could be wrong. Wasn't too excited about having satellite TV as experience has taught me you will only ever pick up a couple of English speaking news channels, and nothing else, so I wasn't disappointed. Can't speak to the restaurant as we didn't use it.

Good location, friendly staff, went self catering but bought drinks from the bar which were very reasonably priced. Our room was clean a few things missing for self catering but we requested them and they we're provided straight away. The pool area especially the sunbeds and side tables could have been cleaner as could the tiles around the pool. We chose to keep a room as check out was 12 and we weren't being picked up until 7 in the evening. Wouldn't recommend the room. Photos attached. All in all a nice break but 12 years since we were last in Pafos and sorry to say its like a building site and apparently has been this way for over 12 months!
