Best for Food - Expert review of Paradisos Hills

A suitably paradaisical retreat in beautiful countryside, with sweeping views.

 Only in operation since 2005, this stone-clad country hotel has quickly established an excellent reputation for service and value, and is underrated as a two-star, considering the room appointments and facilities to hand. It’s run by two sisters, Niki and Soula, with a woman’s touch evident in attention to details.

Location: 

 A commanding position atop a knoll 1km east of Lysos, 16km from Polis, at the very edge of the Paphos forest with not a villa project or fire scar in sight (for now).

Bedrooms: 

 The 15 rooms are good sized and in subdued taste, with solid dark-wood furniture, tile flooring, beige soft furnishings, a preponderance of double beds, mini-fridges and (except for 5 which face inland) sweeping sea and hill balcony views. Bathrooms by contrast are simple but functional. One ground floor room is disabled-adapted, two interconnect for families.

Public areas: 

 The lawn-garden and restaurant terrace are suitable for weddings; there are folkloric/rustic touches to decor, without lurching into kitsch, and stone flags underfoot nearly everywhere.

Eating and drinking: 

 The Sunday buffet lunch (with lots for vegetarians) is something of a local institution – I finally tried it recently and was pleased, which I’m not always in such cases. There’s also a Friday-night Indian buffet. A la carte food is available all day, though contents of the buffets go quickly. Niki does cooking lessons on request.

Leisure facilities: 

 There’s only a large, wind-protected pool below the restaurant terrace, though massage, horse-riding and scuba diving are arranged on request.

Service: 

 Hands-on management from the owners and reportedly near-flawless staff.

Who stays there: 

 Cypriots and foreigners (primarily British and central European); small wedding parties

Price advice: 

 November to March stays are 20% cheaper than summer rack rates of 102 euros B&B, despite the heating-bill factor. Half-board rates are advantageous.

Pros: 
Assiduous management
Good food
Quality room furnishings
Cons: 
Not easy walking distance to anything
