“Honeymoon truly amazing at the Annabelle x”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

We came to stop at the Annabelle on sep 11th for our honeymoon for ten nights - we arrived at the hotel around midnight , checked in to reception with our marriage certificate and had a free room upgrade, we got to the room and it was beautiful big spacious room with seating area a lovely sea view . within ten mins of being in the room a knock on the door ,a waiter came in with a complimentary bottle of champagne for our honeymoon it was a lovely touch ..... We had an amazing honeymoon and couldn't fault the hotel , staff food at all . We loved paphos harbour we eat out a few mites while being there and enjoyed all the restaurants we tried - we loved the pool area abd gardens were amazing , we will defo be retiring next year for our first wedding anniversary :))
Can't wait xx

I stayed at the Annabelle for two weeks in June 2011. The grounds and the pool area are absolutely stunning but, sadly, that's the only positive thing I can say about this hotel. The rooms are dated, the service isn't what you would expect from a five star hotel and the drink prices are absolutely shocking. Paphos itself has become quite commercial (there is a Kfc and a pizza hut situated next to the hotel) and I don't think I would ever return.

We are very disappointed that you were not satisfied with your experience. It comes as a suprise though, reading your comments about our service, the first thing we are usually complimented on.

We are sorry that Annabelle did not meet your expectations, and hope that we will have the opportunity in the near future to turn around your opinion. Please feel free to contact us directly so that we can propose an option: gserv.annabelle@thanoshotels.com

Disadvantages:
Old elevator (making you crazy)
Old equipment (e.g. TVs)
Old-fashioned doors keys (non-electronic)
Small beach (almost no sand beach)

Advantages:
Perfect location (right in the center of Katowice Paphos beach)
Perfect meals (no need to go into restaurants outside or even go into specific restaurants within the hotel)
Perfect service (room check twice a day)
Extremely stable and long-range wifi all over the hotel (and in nearest bars ;) )
Great grassy beach with plenty of sunbeds

Overall: great hotels which requires small renovation

Once upon a time it may have counted as 5 *, not now! If only the hotel was as good as its staff. The food was repetitive, the drinks exhorbitant, the rooms not to 2011 standard. Shower over bath in a 5*? Air con had one speed, ice cold or nothing. Sorry but I expected better and am used to better in 5* accommodation.

Room Tip: Walk-in showers are a rare treat (and at a supplement) in this hotel.

Dear Guest,

thank you for staying at Annabelle recently. We appreciate your feedback, and take it into consideration as we strive to improve.

On the issues raised, please allow us to explain that different room categories have different features. Many of our rooms have walk-in showers, even some of our Sea view rooms. You may wish to know that we are planning to increase the number of rooms with walk-in showers over the coming winter and we are hoping to complete updating many of the bedrooms.

Please accept our apologies for not meeting your culinary expectations, but it comes to us as a surprise, since we daily receive so many praises on our complimentary buffets. However, there is a large variety of other restaurants too and we are disappointed that you didn't try our Amorosa fine-dining restaurant, our Italian Mediterraneo, the traditional Ouzeri on the seafront, or the fusion cuisine in Almyra's Notios restaurant.

In any case, we would like to thank you for choosing Annabelle, and hope that you will consider returning so that we can show you our appreciation. If you wish to contact us directly please email us at gserv.annabelle@thanoshotels.com

Best regards,
Annabelle Management

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past few years - so this review is long overdue. The last stay was in May this year.

In simple terms, this is an outstanding hotel by any standards. It is not a glitzy Dubai palace or a "cheap drinks/chav friendly" emporium. It is a discerning and high quality hotel with the traditional values of outstanding food and exemplary service. I can only comment on the deluxe sea view and superior rooms - having only experiened them. They are well appointed, superbly maintained with maginficent views and the facilities are spot on. I judge against QG standards on Cunard and 5 star resorts in the Indian Ocean - this is a tad different in style, but it's up there with them for sophistication and general quality. It is about ambience, atmosphere, tranquility, and outstanding - indeed, quite magnificent customer service throughout the hotel. The bar service aound the pool is excellent, the cold towels, refreshing sprays, ice cream etc - that is what 5 star quality means - not having tea/coffee making stuff in your room for God's sake! Order one from room service if you are desperate or go downstairs and have one properly served to you - that's what it's actually about, not making your own!

We've celebrated an anniversary here and the "returners'" lunch - both were exceptional occasions. The evening buffet is as good as anything you'd see in the best hotels in Mauritius for example - which is about as good as it gets, anywhere - for range, quality, presentation and taste! The other restaurants are also exeptional in my exprience, quite outstanding, even the beach front taverna on Greek/Cypriot nights. Yes, wine & drinks are a bit expensive - you pay for the suroundings, service and style, it's about value for money. The Annabelle delivers that by the bucket load in my view.

Personally, I couldn't contemplate staying in a Dubai "glam palace" (which is a sort of "nouveau 5 star" - that just means opulence & over indulgence for my money. do you really want/need snooker table in your room?) but I do appreciate style, service and top quality food. If you want that, plus an oustanding terrace/pool area & proximity to the port and centre of Paphos - this will tick all the boxes. It'll do for me - anyday. .

We have just returned from two weeks at The Annabelle.
I have stayed in many 5star hotels and this has to be one of the best.
Staff are friendly,helpful and efficient.
Food excellent with plentiful choice.
Bedroom was well appointed and maintained to a high standard.
Always a choice of sunbeds by or near to the relaxing swimming pools.
Drinks are at the higher end of prices but consistent with levels at hotels of this standard.
Thank you to all at the hotel who gave us such a great holiday

We stayed at the Almyra next door, but used the facilities of it's sister hotel every day. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Huge swimming pool and sundeck, with steps leading down to further sunbathing areas and smaller pools, one with a swim up bar.
