This hotel certainly has location on its side. It gets plus points for its pool, too.
This hotel looks out over Coral Bay – you can be on the sandy beach in about 5 minutes. It’s less than half that to a good selection of shops and restaurants.
There’s a big pool with a swim-up bar, a buffet restaurant for mealtimes, and an entertainment line-up that spans sports to live music. Meanwhile, kids rate the pirate ship playground.

We booked this hotel for a short stay at very short notice. Very reasonable for all inclusive, plenty of choice, staff were pleasant and helpful. Room 156 with sea view was average but adequate. Would definitely consider returningMore

Badly in Need of Renovation
I first stayed at this hotel in 2007 and it doesn't appear to have been decorated since! The rooms are very tired. My bed was hard, I had no fridge (as described in hotel literature), and the hairdryer was hanging off the wall. On the plus side, I had paid for a sea view and it was lovely. 180 degrees of sparkling sea! I stayed on a B&B basis and, sadly, was not impressed by breakfast. Everything you need was there, but none of it was very appealing. Location is excellent. Daytime animation team were lovely and cheerfully took no for an answer when guests refused their offer of joining in with activities. Evening entertainment (bingo and karaoke) just not my cup of tea. In conclusion, I feel that this hotel has let standards slip and now only merits 3 stars.More
2 weeks at 'The Crown'
We have just arrived home from Coral Bay after spending 14 nights at the Horizon Hotel, sometimes known locally as 'The Crown. June 9 to June 23 all inclusive with Thomas Cook. Hotel was opened in 2001 so we were told, so it may show its age but in a good way. We stayed in room 181 first floor end of corridor to rear of hotel. The block is known as the Garden Wing and is very quiet. Odd numbered rooms face forward to car park and rear of main block even numbers face to rear and tennis courts. A covered walkway leads to lifts from main hotel building which serve 3 floors.Some details now; Rooms have tv, large main bed, sofa bed chairs and table, Balcony has 2 chairs and table. Fridges are extra at E3 per day and wi-fi is at best E30 per week. Beware T Cooks brochure re fridge, it is a printing mistake. Also no tea facilities in room but electric sockets are British 13 amp type of which there are 3 per room. TV has BBC world , Russian and Cypriot stations of which PIK 2 has a film on in English most nights around 21.00. Hotel towels are E20 deposit and E2 for two and are good quality with Pepsi endorsements, A launderette is on site E4 for washer and E4 for the dryer located in room under Garden wing. Indoor pool and fitness room on lower floor are well equipped with all you need to keep fit. Main outdoor pools range from .50m deep for toddlers to 1.90m for swimmers near the Sapphire pool bar, The Ermine bar is both outdoor for sun bathers and indoor like a traditional lounge bar with drinks and snacks available. For people like us on TCX 1328 ex LGW arriving at 11 pm food is still available, as sandwiches and fruit as well as tea/coffee. Take away packed lunches are available when ordered at reception previous day, sandwiches fruit drink, tomato apple/nectarine from the restuarant in the morning, Staff are excellent. and are mostly from outside Cyprus. Some say the beds are hard here but ask for a 'topper'. 2 inches of sponge make all the difference. Request them from reception. Evening meals are themed and all meals can be taken inside or outside in a covered area. Please do not feed the cats, even if they look up at you, they get well fed and are from a rescue centre in central Paphos. A tip here on the buses to Paphos. The 615 is the main route to Paphos and is flat fare E1.50. Try a E5 ticket for a day 'rover' and take the 610 at the harbour to the Municipal covered market on a hill in the city centre. A modern 'Mall' is the Kings Avenue shopping Centre, ask the driver to drop you off. (E means euro) Back to the hotel now,- the rooms have carpet on floors and corridors which helps reduce noise, other areas are tiled. There is a shop near the reception for papers, magazines water and other items from a local charity. Just a few words of caution now, the ceiling in the bathroom is metal and could show signs of rust and the room furniture could have marks from previous guests! On the plus side maid service every day, towells and bed sheets changed on a regular basis. We recommend this hotel......enjoy your stay.More

First trip to Cyprus
Have recently returned home after a first trip to Cyprus, after reading some of the views i was a bit dubious about the hotel. However, the hotel and all the staff were completely fantastic and made our stay very enjoyable. We arrived at the hotel very late (about 1:30am) and were given complimentary sandwiches and fruit upon arrival. Our first night in the room was very uncomfortable with no working air con and a very horrid smell coming from the bathroom. First thing in the morning we went down to reception to complain. But credit where it is due, the staff were very apologetic and very efficient in getting it sorted for us. We were able to go and inspect the new room to ensure it was up to our standards before excepting it and within 10 mins we had a new room. It was all sorted with no further issues and efficiently with great customer service! Granted, the decor in the rooms are a little old but the room was very spacious with its own little balcony and was everything we needed. The rest of our holiday went on with no further issues or complaints; the food was great - a choice for everyone. The pool and other facilities the hotel provided was fantastic, the entertainment in the evening was good, the entertainment staff ran activities during the day which were great fun, especially the water polo! And all the staff in the hotel were completely fantastic, so friendly and helpful!! Would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone and would happily stay there again. More

I am going in August for my 50th
I don't usually do this in advance, however if the service that you get when at the hotel is anything like that of Nicos L who works at the hotel i am in for a great time. I know the hotel is in the best of settings but the staff also seem great. well done.More
