We went to the Almyra last week and it does impress on first view after driving through the grim Paphos and beach front area.The economic crisis has hit hard and clear to see. The room was fine but not 5* at all just in case you think that's what you are buying. Breakfast was nice but it was the same every day and could have been any breakfast buffet anywhere ! Evening buffets were just DULL...and uninspiring. We had to escape on three nights because we could not face the pain of walking around looking at such dull food. Eating outside on the terrace was great but nearly every table had a child or three and the few couples there looked pained at the sight of so many noisy kids.The two restaurants are good and the service excellent at all levels. The big problem is poor security around the hotel. Anyone could walk in from the promenade on the beach side and all the rooms in the main hotel have very old 80's style "push a button into the handle" doors and locks. One hard push and it would fly open easily.
The spa area is great for any stressed out singleton or couple looking to escape the kids in the main pool but they charge Euro 4 for local bottled water costing 60 cents from the shops and and wont let you bring your own ! The spa treatments are expensive so be warned.
Overall its a good hotel that should not be priced at 5*, staff are excellent especially Zoe on reception and Theodore in the Notios restaurant.....but we would NOT got back to the hotel or Paphos again for any reason.
