I have to give a warning and declare an interest at the outset. First, the warning. Beware all reviews (and reviewers). Some of us may have "outlying" opinions so look carefully at the trend of reviews to get a feel for what are most likely to be accurate and representative views. Second, the interest. I am half Greek Cypriot and have been visiting the island four or five times a year for the last 20 years. I know the family who own and operate this hotel very well indeed. But that shouldn't stop me providing a review as long as that interest is declared.
This hotel was set up by the current owners father in the early 60s. It has gradually grown in size and was comprehensively renovated over three years a d re-opened recently. The dining area, bar and health spa are the equal of any of the five star hotels on the island (including the much vaunted Anassa). The pool area is beautifully designed and a very pleasant place to unwind after meetings. The buffet breakfast was excellent. A wide range of fresh fruit, juices and cereals together with any choice of cooked breakfast that you want (I remain mystified that there is a section of the British public who travel to a hot Mediterranean destination and still want to feast on sausages and fried eggs but fear not, if you fall into this cohort then the hotel's kitchens will send you away content. Or you can try fruit, yoghurt, cheese and eat like a local). I dined at the hotel restaurant twice in the evening and the food on each occasion was exceptional with a wine list that many London restaurants would struggle to match.
The room I stayed in most was completely renovated and boasted all the modern conveniences expected in a five star residence.
The service has always been of the highest standards but that may be because I know the owners very well. However in all the time I have been coming here I know it has been a favoured haunt of English families who return year after year and there have never seemed to be any complaints from them about service.
Location. This is not a beach hotel. If you need to be by the beach and to have beach views then it is jot for you. But if you want a boutique hotel with a family atmosphere and don't mind making your own way to the beach then this should suit you. I'm currently on holiday in the med where we have to do just that and sadly don't have the benefit of the Alasia as a base to return to in the evenings. likewise if you are doing business here it is perfect with no silliness such as additional charges for wifi.
So, perfect service in a modern beautifully designed boutique spa hotel. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
