Simply put, the Almyra is in my opinion the best hotel in Cyprus. I would never holiday anywhere else on the island, and to be honest, it is my all time favourite destination. Having visited 13 years straight, this year I was devastated to not return. Why you might ask? Where to start! Firstly the staff are exceptional. From the moment you walk into the cool fragrant lobby, you feel enveloped in the warmth and care of the hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and your worries evaporate at check-in. Whilst you are waiting to go to your room you can also enjoy a wonderful cocktail prepared by Dragos in the lobby bar. His cocktail making skills are worth the trip alone. The rooms are light, cool, immaculate and in keeping with the essence of the hotel, boutique chic. There are several pools to lay by, including an adult only one at the luxurious spa. Wherever you choose to while away the day, you can hear and see and feel the sea - and as the sun goes down you are treated to the most marvellous sunset over the castle turrets. The food is exceptional - breakfast, lunch and dinner, with several dining experiences to choose from. Walking distance to the harbour, there is plenty to occupy you outside the hotel if you prefer, and Pafos Watersports are directly in front of the hotel providing you with all your thrill seeking water activities. Whether you are getting married, on your honeymoon, want a romantic stay, or have all your children in toe, the Almyra has all you need.
In October, I attended a lovely event at the Almyra Hotel. A Garage and Table Top Sale with all profits going to a local charity ❤️. Almyra reception staff very warmly welcomed me and I was accompanied to the event which was held in the beautiful gardens of this stunning hotel. Everyone adhered to COVID-19 regulations and I felt very safe. I bought some great bargains and it was sooo helpful to be able to try on items in one of the Almyra Garden Rooms. What an ideal opportunity to view the very classy hotel accommodation! The Almyra should indeed pride itself in how it supports the local Paphos community. Top Marks all round!
Nowhere near a 5 star experience - more like 3 star
I simply cannot believe the other reviews I am reading here! This is nowhere near a 5 star hotel by UK standards - probably 3 star. This is classified as a Luxury Hotel. IT IS NOT. The Good A fairly nice location, next to the sea in an area good for swimming A watersports concession right in front Pretty cheap Available at the very last minute (only booked because quarantine rules resulted in us cancelling our trip to Verdura in Sicily) The promenade in front where one could walk or run Had decentish meals in the Greek Taverna and the Asian fusion Had a couple of goodish spa treatments Close to the airport The Bad Ugly hotel and surrounds Such ugly common areas Small and dingy rooms No charm Very functional pool areas Inexperienced, frequently uncharming, sometimes smelly, young and struggling staff - clearly not used to the suddenly expended occupancy levels arising from Cyprus' new found popularity! Pafos is ugly and there is nothing charming about the town or the people Cypriots seem very work shy Lots of British expats of the sort you would prefer not to spend too much time with Poor kids club and activities I only went here out of a lack of choice and desperation to get some sun! I would not normally ever have considered a holiday in Cyprus - and now I know why!
Best Hotel in Paphos
This hotel is position A1, within a few minutes walk of Paphos town centre, and right on the beach front promenade. Most rooms have front sea facing, which means sunset views. Other rooms are within a few metres of the sea (Kyma suites). Which makes a big difference waking up and hearing the ocean. Restaurants are excellent, we ate at Ouzeri which is a quaint traverna with live music. The breakfast was extensive, and service in every aspect 5/5. The hotel has a modern feel without being too 'cool'.
Amazing, amazing Almyra
We were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived at Almyra. We have never been to Cyprus once before this was a new experience for us. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was upgraded to a sea view and we were able to see the stunning sun set every evening. The full board food was so tasty and inviting and the COVID precautions made us fell safer than at home! We'll be back!
