    we booked full board but the drinks were not included and they charge a glass of fresh orange juice 6 EUROS. A bit too much considering that Cyprus is full of oranges and that you can buy a fresh glass of orange juice for 1 EUROS everywhere else in Cyprus. Also a bottle of water was 4 EUROS. Everything need to be paid extra.

    The design of the Resort was excellent but a bit dated. (Jacuzzi and steam room no working properly).

    Have stayed twice and experienced the best ever hospitality and comfort! Would highly recommend Panoramic Suites in case you wish quiet rest and are not lazy for a short walk to main facilities.

    Bed hogging by poolside by families who then didn't turn up for hours or whose kids didn't use them at all as they were too busy playing.

    Location perfect, staff excellent, rooms lovely and spacious. Pool wonderful.

    Lack of service! Not attentive, not helpful, not willing to provide service for 5 stars hotel - I asked double cappuccino and was answered they don't have cups for it! Or asked for "coffee to go" after check out and told that they can't get anyone to bring it to the reception so if I want I can go to the pool bar and get it myself! Or coming alone with baby in one hand and two plates on the other for breakfast and no one asking if I need any assistance! Or seeing flies in dried fruits over the breakfast, saying this to the staff and receiving answer - it's ok! Or mixing up days for restaurants reservations, or mixing your orders. Or waiting for menus, food, drinks at beach bar because there is only one person doing it all. Personally I would accept all this as an avarage service for 3-4 star hotel. But when it's 5 and one of the most expensive in CY, you expect service to be above or at least at your expectations. Second thing, beach is not good (it's not hotel fault, just mentioning) and there is no person to control sunbeds (hotels faulce) so same people leave their towels in the morning on the beach sunbeds, green area sunbeds and pool sunbeds and if you r not fast enough you are left without any sunbed (when there are plenty empty ones just with towels)

    It's a great concept of the hotel and the way facilities are located. Room was clean. Good evening restaurant service

    - Apollo Taverna's grilled meat and fish is slightly burnt each time; - Expensive food at on-site restaurants as well as in bars;

    + Service level is amazing! + Easy beach access with free of charge beach beds; + Long pool with great view; + Half-board meal is nourishing;

    This resort is beautiful. The architecture is based on a Cypriot village and the gardens are a delight. The rooms are elegant and spotlessly clean. The staff are so kind and welcoming and the food is really excellent in the Apollo Taverna which serves fresh local food. The facilities are numerous and the breakfasts were superb.

    If we had to be picky, it would be nice if the beach was less stony. But that really is splitting hairs as all beaches on Cyprus seem to be stony.

    The location is wonderful, the staff are brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. In fact they are very proactive, going out of their way to be exceptionally helpful. We absolutely loved our holiday and didn't want to leave - we cannot stress enough how wonderful it was! Thank you so much to everyone especially the lovely reception staff and the very kind and helpful Pantelis who was so fabulous and a real asset to the hospitality industry. The facilities are also excellent - restaurants, food, spa, gym, classes, car rental at the hotel... We had an Executive Suite overlooking the sea, which was perfect. We are planning on visiting annually :)

    Nothing, it is a great hotel ( tongue in cheek ) It would have been fantastic if there had been lift up the last little bit of the walk to our room!

    Hotel very well positioned the panoramic room was brilliant, great view, very big room, bathroom and balcony. The local village was only a 5 min walk through the "sister hotel" next door where there were plenty of welcoming bars and restaurants. The hotel facilities and staff were excellent and the breakfast one of best. Would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

    Don't go for room service breakfast - coffee not very hot - but restaurant breakfast beautiful.

    Huge bed - huge bath and shower. Airy room. Lovely coffee-maker.

    Indoor swimming-pool cold. 27° declared but still shivering once inside. Better to increase the temperature so people can enjoy it.

    Staff absolutely the best ever. Friendly, respectful and professional! the hotel is well maintained and well designed. The pool is amazing and the sea side area is perfect and the garden is lovely. One of the best hotels ever!

    If you look closely this beautiful property needs a real deep clean; from the rust stained toilets to the clogged sink to the absolutely filthy mat in front of the suite's door etc.etc.

    Amazing property, stunning views; great staff; excellent food.

    Not a lot to do in evenings, no entertainment, only a few shops and bars in walking distance. Prices for drinks expensive double the price of bars outside hotel.

    Rooms excellent, staff excellent, excellent beach, very comfortable slippers dressing gown and toiletries,cleanliness in pool and public areas very good.

    I didn't consider the breakfast to be competitive with other 4-5 star hotels. The coffee (very bad), bread, choice of cheese, cold cuts just average.

    layout of hotel facilities, buildings, pools

    Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Cycle Hire facility attached to the hotel, Bike Cyprus, really good for guided rides and tours, also good quality bikes. Food was very good in the Apollo restaurant and outstanding in the Bacchus. We enjoyed the holiday on every count. Very relaxing.

    Half board was only allowed in one of their two restaurants and there were exceptions. This was not clear when I booked. The food quality was ok but not as good a most places in Cyprus. The prices they were charging were highly inflated. The Spa was ok but in need of some minor repairs and cleaning.

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Locations is great.

    Service in the restaurants was at times a little slow - to the extent that you'd wonder if you had been forgotten - and then unapologetic. This wasn't great for such an otherwise fabulous hotel.

    The pool and the site layout are beautiful. The rooms are large and luxurious.

    We had a fridge which didn't work which we mentioned to the hotel staff during our stay which was never rectified. Not too much of a problem as we only wanted to have our bottled water cold, but could be an issue if not sorted out. It was a bit of effort to get to the hotel on a very windy, hilly and long road but worth it!

    The setting was superb and the surroundings stunning. Great choice of breakfast and the service was great.

    Located on a scenic beach, away from the small town of Pissouri Bay, but close enough to be able to walk and enjoy some of the other local eating places. Fantastic swimming pool and all the facilities you could wish for. Good eating options and excellent breakfast.

    Our room was opposite tennis court of sister hotel with main generator below which was noisy, irritatingly. Service at taverna poor at times. Beach not very nice, wouldn't choose to sit there.

    The hotel is well laid out, the pool area and garden very attractive. The Bacchus restaurant is great, although expensive, worth it, the staff there are great. Rooms very comfortable and spacious (pool view suite)

    This is a super get-away-from-it-all hotel resort and location. Very relaxing and intimate. If you want something a bit special in Cyprus then this is the place. Nothing too much trouble.

    The fact that it was only for a short stay (we didn´t even have the chance to try the spa facilities). We found the restaurants a bit expensive but top quality.

    Everything! The hotel´s architecture, the luxurious room, the extra effort for hospitality, the huge pool, the rich breakfast.

    The surf boards were beyond repair yet on display and advertised as offering water sports. It would be nice to offer afternoon tea. The 'indoor' pool was freezing as it opens to the outdoor pool.

    The spa and location.
