“In need of refurbishment”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

So u pay to stay in a 5* hotel. U arrive and realize that is was 5*s... A very long time ago.

Not recommended unless u r content with your typical mass tourism joint.

Staff r exceptionally kind and caring: pool bar & reception.

We went along for a breakfast in the hotel and were very pleasantly surprised with the range and quality of breakfast on offer. There was a good selection of fruits, cheese, cold meats, cereals and pastries as well as a hot buffet along with pancakes or waffles. The help yourself sparkling was also a very pleasant addition. The staff were friendly and quite attentive. All this for €12.50 per person - a great start to our day.

Chose this hotel cause we thought that it was a 5star hotel and we wanted our comfort for a few days. Unfortunately this is not the case by far! A hotel that claims to be resort but maintains all its features from back 20 years! Old furniture, smelly carpets in the corridors... and many many more!! Not at all what I expected baring in mind that this hotel used to be one of the top in Limassol. Guess the words "use to be" are accurate. Shame cause they have the marina and a relatively good beach. Never again. Sorry.

The people who work here are fabulous. This is my second time around here at the St RaphaelResort and I can tell you that having worked in the hotel industry in NY for years, they've managed to put together a class act personnel at all levels here. It has the best beachfront by far in comparison to some of the other hotels nearby. The Marina adds a touch of romanticism to the whole scenery, which makes it rather unique, and the Parekklisia Municipality has done a great job developing the coastline around the St Raphael. The hotel is situated close to some ancient archaeological sites which are accessible by foot via the coastal footpath and boardwalk, which begins along the hotel beachfront. Morning stroles are most invigorating along the coastline. The cuisine is par excellance! Even my wife who doesn't satisfy easy didn't complain once....strike that, she actually did complain once....about overeating! She loved the food and overindulged you see. My daughter loved the spa, she wished we would have stayed longer so she can use it more often. Finally, kudos go out to Demetra, Sasha, Michalis,Christos the waiter, Mattheos the bellman, Yiannis at the Seashells Sand Bar, Maria in housekeeping, Raphaellos and the other lads on the beach, and so many others whose names I've forgotten and who have made our stay exceedingly comfortable and memorable! I ordered another Blue Lagoon at the Captain's Bar last night and drank to your health, as they say here in Cyprus "Eis ygeia!"

We have travelled all over the Med and stayed in a lot of 4&5 star hotels but this hotel is the best hotel by far the staff are fantastic special mention to the bar staff at the Captains Bar who were superb also the waiting staff once again superb the food was excellent anyone who complains about the food must have something wrong with them something for everyone entertainment was fine some good shows put on the hotel is spotless the standard excellent the beach is well looked after no problems looking for beds We went the last 2 weeks in July for our 40th wedding anniversary and my 60th birthday dont normally do all inclusive but the standard in this hotel was worth every penny will be back next year but not in July far to HOT for me there was a lot of Russians staying but they were ok just seemed to eat a lot.

Room Tip: If you can afford it upgrade to an excecutive suite with a sea view well worth the extra the balcony...

This is a fantastic hotel and caters for all. We went there in June and the staff were a great help, we arrived at 9.50pm and the the man behind the desk who booked us in told us to go and grab a bite to eat before the they close and they didn't charge us for the lovely meal we had as we only booked as b&b. When we got to our room it was superb but faced the main road so the next day I asked the man if we could have a see view, not really thinking it would happen but he said yes and gave me the keys straight away and not only that the porter moved all our belongings to.T he staff are really fantastic and are the making of a great Holliday. The food was 5 star and facility's to meet everyone's needs, I like keeping fit so the gym is very important me and there was plenty of equipment to get a solid workout. The entertainment was great for the kids and the
Pools that we used with the kids amassing, they also had a kids play area the our kids enjoyed. When you think of booking a hotel in Limassol this has to be the place.

Room Tip: See view is the best but rooms without are superb

Just returned from our second holiday at this hotel. The staff are very helpful especially the restaurant manager Sacha,who goes the extra mile to please.
Will return again soon!.
The food is excellent with great choice to please every taste.
Swimming pools kept very clean & surrounding areas kept clean & tidy.

Room Tip: All rooms are great,but perhaps marina view the best.
