“A great chill out holiday”
Reviewed 19 September 2010

Sept 5th to 12th, weather great, no complaints at all with hotel, staff ,and food. Bus to Paphos two minute gentle walk up road 1euro, tavernas and supermarkets five minute walk.
We went on holiday to chill out, read by the pool, swim in the pool or you could go down to the bay, a great setting plenty of loungers and no children that week. Age of guests 25 to 80.
We would go back again for sure.

Have just spent a most enjoyable week in this, the most friendly hotel I have experienced in many years! The staff could not do enough for you. The highlight for me was being able to dine al fresco under the stars every balmy evening, a gentle breeze every now and then reminding you were dining under the stars! The food was excellent and varied no complaints what so ever! Breakfast too was varied with a choice of cold meats or sausages bacon ,beans eggs etc. The cereals were obtained through clever dispensers and ample COLD milk of two types was on hand. Being AI is an advantage for lunches and drinks were expensive I noted. The food was equally good as were the sweets and cakes! Tea and coffee making was available in your room, A Thermos type jug of cold water was replaced daily., bed linen was changed daily along with the bathroom towels. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean. By removing the room key from the fob meant the air/con could remain on when leaving the room, useful with ambient temperatures in the 30s! (This practice appeared to be tolerated) The only minus points in my opinion were,No pool towels were provided,but could be purchased in the hotel shop . The usual reserving of sunbeds took place of course, .some being reserved and people leaving the hotel for the morning for use in the afternoon..very selfish I thought! There is no guest toilets on the same level as the dining room, meaning one had to take the lift DOWN to the ground floor, most inconvenient! Hand rails would assist the less able to negotiate the many steps around the place especially when dining al fresco in low lit areas.These matters have promised to be attended to during the two month shut down after January.Access for coaches was sometime difficult, meaning one had many steps to climb to join the coach who could not be bothered to insist easy access be maintained, this issue also, was promised to be addressed, but I have my doubts if it ever will be!. Never the less, later this year
I will return ! Finally the excellent bus service cost only one Euro no matter what distance you wish to travel, the No 10 or 15 bus(actually 610 and 615)the former being the one for the Municipal Market only..

Stayed for10 days from the end of August. The hotel is clean although a little tired rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels and sheets.The beds ours was double was terrible very uncomfortable and no support very cheap matress suffered back pain most mornings. On the plus air con work very well in our room which was good being as the outside temp was never far from 30 degrees.
Food is bland to say the least it was edible that is the best I can say it works on a 3 day rotation and every thing is recycled into something else next day, the choice is limited very poor.
The hotel grounds need some TLC. The Bay as in Queens Bay is or would be very nice if they cleaned up a bit the rubbish is terrible most washed into the bay by the sea I would think but it looked like an ash tray most mornings with hundreds of fag ends and there was a constant stream of plastic bottles and fishing nets so that spoiled it some what. (its a public beach not for just for hotel guests)
The sunbeds are OK manged to get one most mornings but laying out your towel at 07.00 or before is common practice. The pool is OK its a pool and never got to busy.
We went all inclusive but not everything is, you have to pay for a mik shake or a Frappe most cocktails and your safe key which is non refundable. All meals for AI are buffet and you cant pick anything from the bar menu when this is on. But you can after 3pm very strange. The hotel shop is extortionate. charging 14.00 euros for a paper back which wasnt a new realease disgraceful.
On the plus its very peaceful and quiet the bus service runs along the coast road and you can go either way for 1 euro the buses are air conditioned and run every 15 mins.
Paphos itself is not great, and I was put of a vist to Tombs of the Kings since the planted a KFC next door which kinda took the magic away. All in all an OK holiday would I go again - No

We decided to take a week out and get some sunshine in Cyprus. Having stayed there twice before,finding it very good each time, we went again to the Queens Bay Hotel . We were disappointed.
It appeared that the hotel was only about 30% occupied and it seemed that savings had been made to cope with the drop in turnover.
Whilst our room was cleaned each day ,the towels and sheets were changed only once in the whole week .It was in the food that we felt had slipped the most. The Breakfast was Ok but i still would prefer ,as in many other similar standard hotels, a chef at the stand to freshly fry,poach ,scramble eggs or make omelettes to order,rather than leave a load of presumably oven baked eggs to get drier and more rubbery under the heater. I am sure this would be a success.
The evening meal was fair . Variety was less this time ,with everything overcooked, and the desserts seem to be the same each night.
One worrying thing I noticed was that following a welcome meeting ,left over orange juice was being poured from the glasses back into the storage jar.
The comfort of the hotel and the location are good and you will have a nice stay here but do not expect a la carte dining

Had a lovely stay. Lots to do if you wanted to. Lots of Greek people staying here (always a good sign).
Food: Good choice for all meals i.e. fry up in morning or cereals or continental or fruit or yoghurt, toast.
People were complaing that there was not enough variety. I asked "what exactly do you eat for breakfast at home?"
We stayed half board as friends in villa up the road. I think the moaners were all inclusive so didnt go out to make sure they got their moneys worth!! Could not have stayed in every night in fact we only stayed in once.
Bus to anywhere €1 even to Paphos about 14 km away. Buses run from the airport to hotel so dont bother with taxi.

This is classed as a 3 star hotel but the standards are much higher, one of the few hotels that still employees cypriots which is good as they add a different touch , I went all inclusive with my two daughters age 9 & 14, food & drinks just about all day long. very clean hotel & friendly staff nothing to much trouble, within one day of being there everone new us (no need to keep repeating my room number). the hotel is in a really nice location right of the a cliff next to the sea, you can either relax by the pool which was crystal clear all day round or go down to the grassed area amoung the palm & date trees which over looks the sea & you can hear the waves hitting the shore, Fantastic! there is a small bay at the bottem of the cliff ideal for snorkling if you like that sort of thing, we saw some baby swordfish & lots of others unknown to us. kids loved it. Animation not up to much but then again were not into that anyway, kids made friends quick & were of playing all day. Food was very good quality maybe not such a large spread as some other hotels but you can be sure that ever plate was good quality & very tasty & something different every night, Dinner is served outside on a lovely paved area, very relaxing & all staff very profesional. well done Queens bay i have been to 15 hotels in the past 4 years & your was one of the best I have visited for the money that I payed,

As stated in a few other reviews the hotel looks a little dated. The rooms however were all spotless and cleaned every day. The cost of eating out is high in Cyprus so we elected to go All Inclusive this year. The food was good and varied but did get a little repetitive. We stuck to local drinks so we incurred no costs. It was nice to just go up to the bar at anytime during the day and get any drink or an ice cream.
Facilities at the hotel are basic, a few afternoon games were available if you wanted to join in. If you want a hotel with lots to keep you active this is probably not for you. We just wanted to relax in the sun well away from the hustle and bustle of the main town.
I have seen this hotel advertised as adults only. This is not the case as there were numerous children of all nationalities present in the hotel.
Overall the hotel is in a quiet location and was right for our type of relaxing switched off approach. All i can say is that we enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
