This centre-of-town hotel is just a short walk from the beach, so if 'convenience' is your watchword, it couldn't be better. Facilities-wise, you can expect a pair of pools and a restaurant serving fresh, local produce.
This place is right in the heart of Paphos. There’s a wide, sand-and-shingle beach just a 5-minute walk away, as well as a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants closer still. Plus, the town’s picturesque harbour is only 45 minutes away on foot.
Back at the hotel, the pool scene takes the spotlight. Alongside a classic, rectangular pool, there’s a lagoon-like stretch of turquoise between the building blocks. A smart sun terrace divides the two pools. Plus, the indoor pool one is heated during winter, so you can swim comfortably all year round.
Head inside and the fixtures have a classic Mediterranean feel. We’re talking white walls, tiled floors and fuss-free wooden furniture. In-room extras come in the form of air-conditioning and satellite TV. And you get a balcony or a terrace all to yourself. For more in the way of space, you can upgrade to one of the new superior rooms.
Lastly, when it comes to food, the Kissos Hotel prides itself on using fresh, local produce. Big buffets are served in the main restaurant – think barbecue grills, salads and local dishes like kleftiko. Plus there are regular theme nights, great if you want to try some authentic Cypriot cuisine.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Unlimited local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including cocktails and soft drinks 11.00-23.30 - served by the glass during meals.
Snacks 11.00-12.00 and 16.00-17.30. Ice-cream for children 11.00-12.00 and 16.00-17.00
It's difficult to choose between the two outdoor pools. The first is in a great spot and the terrace is a great suntrap, while the other winds its way through the hotel grounds and stays pretty peaceful.
You can begin your day with a buffet breakfast at Semeli. Lunch is à la carte menu or buffet and dinner offers a delicious buffet spread. You'll have the chance to try something different at one of the four of the themed evenings every week. Greek themed nights usually take place from 7pm and include barbecue foods and salads. There's also a children's menu, so the whole family has plenty of choice at mealtimes.

We stayed at the kissos Hotel 1st 2 weeks in October 2014 travelling with Jet 2 and we found the Hotel to be very clean and comfortable. We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and you could see the sea. The food was very very good with lots of variety. The staff always happy and friendly, the chief barman very efficient and friendly and he did fantastic cocktails.
All in all no complaintsMore

What a rip off!
I don't know why my previous comment got deleted. Shortly saying this hotel is horrible - well it would be all right for about Â£300 for a week and not Â£800 like I paid! No wi-fi. They wanted five pounds for 90 minutes of using the internet. The buffet was the same everyday. Left over food from breakfast for dinner. Dirty rooms. Not every drink was included in the all-inclusive option. Nearly no entertainment throughout the whole week. Just one with two blonde bimbo girls who could not even dance! Bingo for entertainment.. This was just an awful experience, maybe older people would enjoy it.More

Kissos not the same
We always used to stay at the Kissos hotel Paphos for years. We went for the last time in
October 2014. Sorry to say although the staff were their usual very friendly selves ,the food is not what it used to be not very well presented and some not to good to taste (changed chef ?)
Feel the hotel has become a little tired we won't be going back. Such a shame it's not as it wasMore

Another great discovery
We stayed at the Kissos for two weeks in October and really enjoyed our time there. l had e-mailed and asked for a room on a high floor on the sunny side of the hotel and were given a family room with a sea and hotel grounds view which was very nice. The hotel is well placed for a lovely sea walk into the harbour or a shorter way on the main road where the buses are.
Although the hotel bedrooms are a little dated, the dining room, lounge and pool areas are quite modern .
The food is very good, always plenty of choice and hot plates! The staff are very pleasant and helpful, particularly the dining room manager and the hotel owner himself!
The Kissos is far superior to some 4 star hotels we have stayed in.
There was a very good 'Greek Barbeque Night' held outside under the canopy with Greek dancers and excellent salads and meats. The evening entertainment was quite good and there is an indoor pool, tennis, mini golf, short mat bowls and chess.
The newer section of the hotel has a lagoon and canal going through it.
One suggestion l would make is to have free wi-fi in the lobby.
All in all, we felt really welcome and 'at home' in the Kissos and hopefully we will return next year.More
