“Magical”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

We have just returned from a 3 night stay...if you are looking for somewhere to just chill out in excellent accommodation which has been restored to the highest quality then look no further...the village itself is very quiet..2 tavernas..the lofou tavern being the best...bring good footwear..lofou is Greek for hill and the streets are all cobbled!!!...the place is spotlessly clean,staff all very friendly and a freshly cooked breakfast if you want one...go before the secret gets out...just relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: We stayed in the olive suite in the main building but we had a tour of all the various out buildings...

We were lucky to get a week here when few other guests were staying, in the middle of summer, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are 2 parents and one 6yo boy. We had no problems finding Apokryfo (googlemaps provides guidance to get close to Lofou, and it's well sign-posted as you get nearer to the vilage).
Pool is at a nice temperature and the sound of the water trickling creates a superb ambience.
The restaurant, pool area and entire complex is a beautiful setting to relax in when you're not out doing the many activities nearby.
Staff (Pavlos and Olumpia(?)) are very attentive, helpful; as Carol W says, nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is more than you can eat, and lasted us until well into the pm aech day. Dinner mezze is also more than you can eat and included some superb flavours and fresh food.
Location is great, with views over the hills and village; beaches are less than 30min drive away; vineyards, waterfalls and multiple 'taverna' and restaurants within 20-30min drive. Local village is stunning (cute), shop owners/ restaurateurs etc, all very welcoming. However, bare in mind that it is set in a quiet village, which might not suit everyone.
Not much in the way of childrens' activities specifically, but all staff are very friendly towards children, and the pool gave us all the energy relief our son needed while we were in the hotel.
Only complaint might be that conversations in rooms above the restaurant, and those in the restaurant, could possibly be heard by each other.
Enjoy this place! We fully intend to return soon.

We are fortunate to live in Cyprus but everyone needs a break now and then and what better place to go to than Apokryfo in Lofou. The staff are so attentive and friendly and nothing is too much for them. We had a most relaxing time and the peace and quiet was great.

This was such a lovely place to stay I'm not sure I want to share it! Set in a lovely old style village which has quite obviously had some serious but sympathetic restoration work to many of the original stone built properties. The hotel itself is a few minutes walk out of the village centre and has been renovated to a very high standard. We got the full tour of the rooms and "cottages" available and also the wine cellar! The room we had overlooked the lovely countryside and we had a poolside balcony too. The evening mezza meal was excellent and note had been taken of my vegetarian preference stated at the time of booking, there was also a residents discount. This is not a "cheap getaway" place more a special event or celebration and there are spa facilities to although these have to be booked in advance as the providers are not permanently on site. Nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly and helpful staff and we were even served a welcoming pot of tea before being shown to our room

Room Tip: If there are two couples they can share an apartment with sitting room etc which looked very nice

Went to Apokryfo in Lofou, Cyprus to celebrate my best friends wedding, and the setting was absolutely perfekt. Apokryfo is everything you want in a cypriotic wedding. Built in a traditional manner, but kept modern. The pool cool and wonderful. The rooms beautiful and well kept, no cracks at all. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was mouthwatering!! And maybe the food on the night before the wedding was even better than at the wedding it self.
Would definitely come again!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely. Choose the ones along the pool, if you are a gathering of friends. Or chos...

Best place we visit and stay in Cyprus ever... So quiet that you forget all your everyday problems, relaxing and clean both in the room (houses) and in the public places. Lovely, polite and very helpful staff. Clever decoration with traditional items. Food is fantastic and all homemade.. All the above in a place that is traditional but with a modern touch..
