My husband and I have just returned from this hotel and are disappointed, especially after reading previous reviews. Although clean and kept clean by the staff, the rooms need upgrading. I like the idea of carpetted corridors as this cuts down the noise, but not in the bedroom. I am glad I took slippers as the carpets left a lot to be desired. Also the bathroom tiles, sink and lighting needed an upgrade. Some of the furniture had lost it's veneer and marks were plainly seen. The staff are friendly and helpful, but so they should be as the hotel is quite remote and at night, you are marooned. For anyone with walking difficulties, the only way out is by hiring a car. The local bus runs west to Coral Bay, small resort with 1 street of bars, cafes and shops. Going the other way, you can go into Paphos, but the buses stop at 18.30. It is difficult to walk to Paphos from the hotel, as they have not yet finished the pavements and you are basically walking on the main road.We tried to walk along the coast, but the path stops and starts and at some points, you are climbing across rocks. Hotel is very expensive, as is the rest of Cyprus. Prices on a par with London pubs. We have been going on Thomson holidays for the past 15 years, sometimes 2 or 3 times a year and have stayed in much superior hotels with a 3T rating. Perhaps Thomsons should use another method when awarding the 'T' rating. To upgrade to a 'drinks package' is 17euros per person per day and for 'all inclusive' is 22 euros per person per day. At today's exchange rate, that means each couple would be paying £44.00 each for all inclusive. Surely, no-one can eat and drink that amount over and above your half board deal that you booked. And you still have to pay for fridge, kettle and security safe. Most hotels I have been in, have a digital safe and you key in your own PIN no. At this hotel it is an old fashioned key with your room number on it, not very secure if lost or stolen. I think other people who wrote wonderful reviews have not experienced the wider world. Sorry, but that is my personal opinion.
