I have just returned from a 3 week stay at the Crown again may have been here 5 or 6 times so forgive me if some views are repetitive. This is such a friendly hotel the staff and many of the guests are such good friends. In the dining room the new faces appear to have blended in will and provide an excellent attentive service Led by Andreas and supported by Ameshe and Adriane they immediately show you to a suitable table, if party size requires it they will soon move the tables to accommodate the party they work hard to ensure more than ample supplies of cups plates cutlery etc and dirty plates etc are rapidly removed. Where possible and time allows they will chat with you showing an active interest in your lives and give information about their lives and families and become such year on year good friends. Unfortunately the dining room carpet is grubby and in need of some TLC and the request for gentlemen to wear long trousers at evening meals is not enforced. Breakfast is the same most days with usual full English available plus excellent yoghurts and fresh oranges etc.Although food enjoyable and always tasty, more attention is needed to keep it hot. Lunch is often a scaled down version of evening meals,but washed down with good local wines.The salad bar is usually well stocked with lots of fresh produce,sauces etc. The evening meals show an extensive menu, there are usually a couple of pork,lamb,beef etc dishes prepared in different ways and plentiful roast potatoes, chips veg etc. and a carvery of lamb and pork on some nights. also there is a fish dish ,unfortunately the fish is never named! Sweets are pleasant enough and there is usually a warm alternative with custards always lots of cheeses. but don''t expect the elaborate gateauxs we used to get. The bar staff work very hard supplying a variety of drinks and generous portions. again drinks are basic and will be served with ice and lemon but nothing more exotic. everyday except Sunday there is a full animation (games) programe published with the excellent Loredana (that we all love) including archery (over16's only) green bowls,boules,darts,pool.shuffle board etc. (in the summer there are also water based activities) In the evening there was the usual Bingo,karaoke etc and some nights excellent visiting dancers,singers and traditional Greek dancing. Rooms were adequate and kept spotlessly clean ,bedding and towels being changed frequently. I requested a mattress topper has bed was too hard for me,this was supplied in the hour. Most singlies get mountain views with little sun also possible noise of morning deliveries but the sea view rooms are excellent and worth the extra. I never used the safe, I trust the staff here nad the fridge can be free if you buy a bottle of water they tell me. Didnt use the tea and coffee facilities as a bit expensive,many brought their own kettles and took supplies form the breakfast bar! ample gardens needed a bit of TLC when i was there, a play area for the children but there didn't appear to be a kids club or much for them to do. some people complained about the Coral bay beach not realising there was another beach a mile away think Coralia beach which is much better and is at the bus terminus for simplicity. buses are brilliant service 1.50 euro any journey 5 euro for a day pass (good if you want a get on and get off facility) Car hire was plentiful and rates in march April were very good.make sure tank full when returned its much cheaper to fill it than be charged by hirers. also pay for tyres and windscreen cover for peace of mind.More

Good location accessible to everything.
Warmth hospitality from all staff reception, catering, hospitality team. Facilities were all functional room was good abd value for money. I went recently on low season but despite the lack of sunshine the warmth from the staff made it a worthwhile holiday. I have seen bad reviews from others but in my experience I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel to my friends. I will come back againMore

Generally well recommended, but always room for improvement...
Likes: + Good location: 5-10 minutes from nearby beaches and some 20-25 minutes by bus to Pafos Harbour. + Good access/ramps for the less-abled. + Large campus with lots of greenery (grass and palm trees). + Indoor heated pool, spa and gym areas. + Generally very friendly, hard-working and sociable staff with very good English. If the Manager reads this then please convey our thanks to your staff. + Good diverse range and reasonable quality of mass-catering food options including vegetarian main meals (e.g. veggie pizza, veggie Sheppard's pie, veggie lasagna, pastas of various types etc.) + Vegetarian snack options (veggie burger) + Quite fast internet (8 Mbps download) + Simple entertainment throughout the day and late evening. + Bar area shows UK Premier League football matches (albeit in Greek). + Bus stops just outside hotel. + Scores of restaurants (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Cypriot, Fish & Chips etc), gift shops just outside hotel in the main street (2 mins walk). + Good hot showers. Dislikes: - Too many facilities shut (outside bars/BBQ) - Rooms a little small for 3 people. - TV only has a few English channels (like BBC World News) - Air-conditioning either switched off or totally ineffective (room temperatiure circa 27C throughout stay) - Tasted like watered-down drinks using cheapo spirits substitutes. - Too many "additional costs" and little gotchas that give the impression that management are penny-pinching e.g. (1) E10 deposit for a towel, E2 charge for the laundry of a towel, no complimentary wifi in reception/bar areas (E10 for 2 hours internet), no bar-snacks to be eaten in bar area (!), snacks only available for a few hours each day, no ice cream at start of week (refrigerators broken apparently). - Mosquitoes can be a problem if you leave your balcony door open. - As a few people have commented previously, one or two staff members can come across as being quite grumpy. - The outdoor pool was very, very cooooollllllddddddd!!!! - Teenagers might get bored rather quickly unless they like the pool/beach scene.More
Excellent hotel, enjoyable holiday
This was my third holiday in Cyprus, having previously visited Protaras and Paphos, and I stayed at the Crown Horizon, Coral Bay for 2 weeks. For the benefit of anyone not familiar with the location, Coral Bay is a picturesque, scenic and relatively unspoiled resort some 10km north of Paphos centre. Holiday companies' star ratings for their properties tend to be quite variable, even arbitrary, and what they describe as 4* can often barely merit 3* in many travellers' opinions. My overall opinion of this hotel, however, was that it fully deserved it's 4* brochure rating. I booked the package holiday online through Holiday Hypermarket, an associate or subsidiary of TUI UK, and the price I paid was extremely competitive and turned out to be very good value. As a solo traveller, I was allocated a twin room on the 2nd floor (there are 3), which was pleasant, comfortable, spacious, clean and well-equipped. There was ample wardrobe and drawer storage, plus good furnishings including sofa, two armchairs, pouffe, desk, table, tv and the customary plastic balcony furniture. The room service personnel also did an excellent job with their daily maintenance to preserve a high standard of cleanliness. In the event of any of the hotel's management team reading this, I feel that special mention deserves to be given to Andreas, the Restaurant Manager, and his diligent and courteous team. Also the chefs for providing a very high standard of food throughout, with an extremely good range of choice and variety. In particular, I wish to thank Laura, the charming young lady who presided over a well-organised activity and entertainment programme, especially the karaoke evenings, where everyone was made to feel welcome and appreciated. Finally to come to areas for criticism, which always exist even in the best establishments, I could find only two real issues: the drinks prices in the bar, and the cost of internet access. Whilst the bar prices were perhaps not exorbitant in comparison with some hotels I have stayed in, It was nevertheless possible to obtain the same brand of drinks in various bars along the nearby main street of Coral Bay at less than half the hotel's prices. Additionally the various wifi internet access packages available tended to be quite expensive, especially considering that more and more hotels are now progressing towards providing free wifi access, as did the hotel I stayed in, approximately ten miles away, last year. Overall, I would rate the Crown Horizon very highly on a list of the best hotels I have stayed in during recent years, and I would not hesitate to recommend it as a very good venue in which to enjoy a pleasant, relaxing holiday.More

Went to this hotel for 3 weeks January/February and was pleasantly surprised. Visited here with wife and friends. Read a lot of negative reviews about this hotel so went there with some trepidation. However my concerns were unjustified. From the moment we arrived, we were met by some of the friendliest hotel staff we've ever come across, from the reception to the waiting staff in the dining room and to the cleaners. The hotel is set in lovely grounds about a 20 minute bus ride from Paphos and the busses run about every 10-15 minutes. The rooms are carpeted, comfortable and are cleaned daily. There is some sort of entertainment going on both during the day and at night except Sundays. Mention must be made here of the entertainment coordinator, Laura, who would be the life and soul of any party, especially with her unique bingo calling "wobble/quack" as an example. The only criticisms I've got of this hotel are:- 1. The food, although there is plenty of choice each meal, it did tend to get a little monotonous, as the menu is the same each week, whereas in other hotels I've stayed at, the menu is changed on a 2 or even a 3 week cycle. 2. The cost of Wi-Fi, I think that â¬10 for 2 hours is quite expensive. 3. The cost of the drinks, as we were only half-board, we had to pay for drinks and â¬5 for a beer and â¬4.35 for a coffee was unreasonable. I know that hotel prices tend to be dearer, but that was just ridiculous. If however you make your way out of the hotel and walk up the road to the Kikkos bar then the Wi-Fi is free and the drinks are half the price. As we visited in the off peak season the cost of hiring a car was very reasonable. A car I think is essential to be able to get out and explore the Island and the good thing is they drive on the left as we do back home and their traffic signs and laws mirror ours here. Would I stay there again? - Most likely.More
