Historical Traveler Reviews Kissos Hotel Paphos
Kissos again possibly
we visited the kissos in november 2003. we stayed in a lagoon room which was very nice. the holiday was in the main fine but the food was not very special and in queueing for it, we felt we were back at school in the canteen, as it was a free for all rush and latecomers lost out because things ran out. however, to be fair it is only a 3 star hotel and they did give the option of changing your dinner for a lunch option in the bar which we gratefully took and proved to be much better allowing us to eat out in local restaurants in the evening.
Visited for 10 days. We stayed in the large superior lagoon rooms which were great. All hotel clean and tidy. Food good, staff friendly. Brilliant location, 10 minute drive from Coral Bay beach, just round corner from many lovely restaurants and bars. Now trying to bbok again for next year. Couldn't fault the holiday for the money and rating of the hotel.
Great location, lovely atmosphere
The hotel is in a great location near the bars of kato paphos but just on a quiet road on a side street which leads to the sea.
Its quiet but in a nice busy area, with very good restaurants nearby.
Rooms are old fashioned but clean and have the amenities you need. the superior rooms are large, spotless and airy. It was like we had our own pool as the lagoon pool outside the superior room was quiet and had a seat in it so i could sit and read my book. as we had a baby we could have room open and sunbathe next to the pool and on the balcony.
my mum had no problems with her room in the hotel.
We paid for a fridge but my mum used the key to her fridge aswell.
that was our only gripe. you could pay extra for fridge, tea and coffee etc but if it had been included, that would have been great.
brekkie great. lovely staff,
paphos lovely, bars and restaurants nearby were great and family orientated. no rowdness.
would love to go back
Stayed in normals rooms which were fine. Air con good, very clean and easily big enough for 3. We went B&B and the breakfasts were great with plenty of choice. The pools were lovely and clean and the lagoon pool superb. All the staff were helpful and polite. Really enjoyed paphos and will definately return.
All in all a great hotel and a great resort. Dont know what all the moaning is about on these review sites. I suggest some people should keep their precious money and stay at home in the rain!
Would never re visit
We visited the hotel in August of 2004, stayed in the superior rooms which is perhaphs as well, the pool by the hotel has filth all round the outside walls and the water was quite murky, with dirty green mats surrounding it. The food is basic to say the least & the restraunt manager can only be liken to a whirling dervish removing your plates before you have even got time to put you knife & fork down,The entertainment is rubbish, well none existant really, there is no atmosphere at all. The superior rooms are fabulous & the cleaners that clean them are worth their weight in gold, they really earn the wages. The superior lagoon pool is lovely & clean & well maintained. This was the 5th visit to Paphos but I would not re visit The Kissos again, I can imagine that older people return again & again for the quiet.
we arrived 21st july, 2004 we booked a room for 2 adults and 1 child aged 14, we expected a room with a bit space, but it was small and had a smell that you would,nt want for 2 weeks , so we upgraded to the lagoon rooms, that is what i call rooms very relaxing. I dont think i would return to this hotel. we have been to cyprus for the last five years but found this not the one to go back to
Kissos - Average
The Kissos was obviously built in the early 70's and some of the rooms havent been updated since. You can have a large, airy new room - but that costs extra (this is a recurring theme at the Kissos)
You can have the use of a fridge in your room (but that costs extra) and you can have a kettle and tea and coffee in your room (but, you guessed it - that costs extra !)
We didnt think that this was a 3star hotel, which is what the Kissos is advertised as. The standard rooms are not up to much - the carpet in our room was filthy. The food is ok but not to a 3 star standard.
However the Hotel Staff are very friendly and very helpful.
Kissos consistantly good
My wife and I have been to the Kissos 5 times in as many years. It's obvious that due to numerous return visits we have been very safisfied with most aspects of the hotel and service. Its the type of hotel where no one "bothers you":very relaxed very quiet.
ROOMS--We have stayed in both the old block(rooms small) and the superior part (rooms much larger and airy) but both are very clean.However it would help if the rooms with carpets were "Hoovered" more often !!! The older rooms I believe are in urgent need of modernisation - contemporary furnishings required.Safety deposit boxes for some of the older rooms are inconveniently behind reception.I have found air conditioning totally adequate.
FACILITIES--"Second to none" for a 3 star Hotel. 3 quality pools( incl indoor),fitness room, tennis mini golf etc (sun bathing terraces a little cramped)
FOOD--We were b/b and Breakfast choice has much improved over time
ENTERTAINMENT-not a lively hotel -very limited
LOCATION-near lively bars /good restaurants-2.5 kms to main night life,8 mins beach.
I would recommend to couples/groups of adults requiring quiet, no fuss holiday
I don't believe there is much facility for young children.
Kissos what a hotel
stayed here in july 2002, paid for the larger rooms by the pool, this was a wonderful hotel. friendly staff and good food. Not too far either from Fathers bar, where tony who we always vist every time we are in Paphos will be.
This is a high quailty medium price hotel.
if you can get a cheap flight book direct, and save lot on a package.
went to this hotel in 2003 hotel was lovely great pools very clean the only problem was with the air conditioning it is a system that runs through the hotel and it was no where near cold enough so we had a lot of trouble sleeping at night, but all said and done a good hotel
