The Annabelle
Ranked #10 of 85 Hotels in Paphos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have just come back from 10 nights half board at the Annabelle. Five of us (2 adults, 3 kids under 10) shared 2 adjacent but not interconnecting sea view rooms. Overall a lovely stay at a very good, relaxed hotel. It's not a top 5 star hotel and it's a little tired in a few areas but nothing that materially detracts from the holiday. Rooms are clean and well furnished but not super luxurious. Robes, slippers, toiletries all present and correct. The food is very nice but a bit repetitive and some recycling going on....croissant bread and butter pudding most nights and the mornings bacon recycled as "Chefs salad" in the evening....not a big deal but a bit ho hum sometimes. Staff all very friendly and attentive. No complaints there at all.

The pools are nice, fresh water not salt water thankfully. The main pool was so hot it was like swimming in soup. The other lagoon pools much cooler.

Location is good, paphos harbour itself a bit of a let down with loads of shops selling the same tat but a good choice of restaurants if you dont want to eat in the hotel. That said, the mosaics at the world heritage site about 15 mins walk from the hotel are amazing and a must visit. Unlike the fort at the end of the harbour where you are charged 2.5 euros to go up some stairs, see the view and come back down again....not the best value.

A great holiday at a great hotel that could easily be improved with a few bits and pieces attended to. One word of warning,,,if you are half board and arrive late you don't get a meal carried overl. Likewise if you check out and fly out late, you can't have dinner....I think this is a shame as it's only a buffet and the hotel loses some goodwill (not to mention drinks revenue) as a result of this "small print".

My wife and i have spent many an evening thinking why its a 5 star hotel since our stay, we can think off dozen reasons why its isnt and only two why it is.

The staff.
The food.

Go to Malaysia for the same price...

Our daughter got married here at the end of May and 15 members of the bridal party stayed at the Annabelle. Fabulous hotel with wonderful views. The staff are amazing, so helpful and friendly. The food is really good with a lot of variety and the British chef is great. Very often seen in the dining room at evening chatting and checking the food. Location is perfect for exploring paphos. Ten minute walk to the harbour and the lovely restaurants and bars. Bus stop directly outside hotels entrance and bus terminal at harbour only minutes away. Our daughters wedding was amazing. Very private, unlike some I have seen on beaches elsewhere. The setting, staff and food were fabulous. They couldn't do enough for us. My husband and I enjoyed the Annabelle so much that we are returning in September for our ruby wedding anniversary. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing hotel but with easy access to paphos town centre. Thank you.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a superior room with sea view. Fabulous views

I have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Annabelle and had a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday. I wouldn't say this was a 5 star hotel but is certainly a very good 4 star.

Positives:

- Very good location - right next to Paphos harbour and within walking distance of the main restaurants / bars / shops etc.

- The buffet evening meal food - the best I have had on any holiday. There is an extraordinary amount of choice and it is all cooked superbly. There are various themed nights which offer a range of dishes. The chef was always out chatting with guests and seemed more than willing to cater for those who required something slightly different.

- Annabelle Staff - extremely helpful and friendly particularly at evening meal times. They were more than courteous and always asked about your day. They are a real credit to the hotel.

- Whilst the drinks are expensive in the hotel, the lobby / reception area has a nice calm, relaxed ambiance where you can sit and enjoy a beverage with piano music or a singer / guitarist in the evening.

Things they could improve on:

- Whilst the rooms are comfortable and clean (cleaners are in your room literally every time you pop out for 5 minutes!), they could have done with a little modernization. The chairs on our balcony looked tired and worn the drawers looked slightly dated.

- Whilst the pool area is lovely, there are a few chips / missing tiles in some parts (on the smaller pool area towards the bottom).

- You are charged a supplement of 20 euros if you want to eat in one of the a la carte restaurants. We chose the Cypriot night on Thursday - the entertainment was Ok but finished pretty early at 9.30 and the food wasn't really any better than what we had had back at the buffet. My feeling is that one of these nights should be included in your stay as the supplement is excessive and isn't justified by what you receive in return.

Overall a very good holiday and an enjoyable stay. I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends / family and the hotel next door (Almayra - where you can use their facilities for free being the sister hotel) as this looked very modern.

We cant praise the hotel enough. Lovely hotel well deserving their 5 star status great facilities and well maintained. Most of all every member of staff was terrific - use their customer services don't worry about your travel rep for trips etc. The 2 hotel ladies booked all our trips, car hire etc. at very competitive prices.

Would just say that the pool gets very crowded with kids especially at the weekends (local families' using pool also) so if that's not your thing visit out of school holidays, otherwise relaxing pool bar doubles as a great kids waterfall play area! Didn't worry us but could wind up those wanting a quite drink.

Oh and forgot to say food amazing go for half board!!
