Choose the Louis Imperial Beach hotel in Paphos for your Mediterranean holiday and you'll see some of the best that Cyprus has to offer. Sample some of its vibrant present and its culturally rich past, all under those sunny Mediterranean skies. Paphos is the perfect spot for sightseeing, sunbathing and swimming. There are wonderful views out over the harbour, great shopping, amazing relics of the past and a rich tapestry of sights and sounds. (You can also hire a bicycle, motorbike or car to get you to Paphos or further afield.)
The Louis Imperial Beach lets you experience it all. That's if you can drag yourself away from the hotel of course. With its wonderful facilities and smart, chic ambience, it's so much more than a holiday base; it's a genuine holiday retreat.
Set in extensive grounds with well-manicured lawns (and as many shady spots as there are sun traps), the Louis Imperial Beach is a delightful place to relax. Like Paphos it seamlessly combines old world charm with modernity. You'll admire the clean sweep of the public areas – its open restaurant and cocktail bar – all wonderfully polished and spacious. There's a real feeling of tradition here too, and a devotion to good old-fashioned values.
Of course the sun reigns supreme over Cyprus and the Louis Imperial Beach is one of the best places to enjoy it from. With vast spaces given over to sunbathing you'll always find a suitable spot to catch some rays.
And assuming there's any time left between the exploring and sunbathing you can make the most of the indoor and outdoor pools and the leisure club with its sauna, Jacuzzi and massage facilities. You can practice your putting or improve your backhand too – golf and tennis facilities are on site.
You'll find your air conditioned twin room spacious and inviting. With a private bathroom and balcony, and facilities including satellite TV, radio and minibar, you'll be very comfortable indeed.
If Paphos is one of the jewels in the crown of Cyprus, then the Louis Imperial Beach Hotel is one of its finest places to stay. Relish the experience.
The Louis Imperial Beach is ideally located on the shore within walking distance of Paphos's busy centre and with magnificent views of the famous harbour and its old castle. It has extensive grounds leading to the sea and these house a swimming pool and vast sunbathing areas. There is also an indoor pool (Heated November to April).
We were at this hotel when the Covid19 crisis struck. After 2 weeks of our three week holiday, we were locked down, with all restaurants, cafes and tourist sites closed. The hotel and staff were amazing, helping to sort out repatriation flights, meals etc...
Obviously there was disruption and stress but all the staff were calm and helpful, especially the guest relations managers. We will definitely return in happier times. The hotel itself is undergoing refurbishment in some areas but is comfortable and well placed, less than two kilometres from the harbour area. Please support this hotel once the travel restrictions are relaxed, the staff deserve all our support.
Arrived early evening to a drinks reception, booked in and were pleasantly suprised with a room upgrade to sea view. We went to Cyprus for a 70's birthday celebration for my wife accompanied by my son,daughter and there children, 9 of us in total. We arrived Pre CV on the 22nd March and the weather for the whole week was warm and sunny. Most of the week was spent around the kiddies pool/slide and the pool attendant was very helpful turning on the water for us.All the staff were very pleasant especially in the reception, bars and restraunt. We were given a table for the whole week so we could be together. It was a holiday to remember especally with what was to come...
There was some work going on in the main restraunt but this was not intrusive in any way. We wish all the staff well and hope they are coping with the current situation Kind regards to all, John & Nina M & Family
As with another reviewer we too had not originally book to stay at this particular hotel but was moved here following the government restrictions put in place following the Covid-19 situation. If we had booked to stay here the review probably would have been different but coming into this hotel after 7 days in the hotel we had booked to stay at we saw the contrast between the two hotels was vast. There are areas of the Imperial that does need sprucing up but overall the hotel was OK, staff (in the main apart from some working in the restaurant ) were friendly and the room was more than adequate (though the hairdryer needed repairing) and nice view of the beach and for the few days we were there we did have a good time...
However, my main gripe with the hotel was the food. Though the Louis hotels appear to offer the same menu the food at the Imperial was below par and whether it was because it was a bigger hotel it did appear to have a problem in keeping the hot food warm and noticed one incident in which freshly cooked food was mixed in the food that was already out. Shame really that this, for me, let it down. I would like to thank the staff for their hospitality especially under the extreme circumstances we were in. Would we stay here again, probably not as we have been spoilt by the other Louis hotel we originally booked but that's our personal preference, but it is a good hotel that with a few tweaks could be an excellent hotel.
Me and my hubby have visited this hotel 5 times in the last 6 years. We normally go around the same time that my in laws are at the same hotel for their line dancing 2 week package. We arrived on the Friday 13th and found we were the last flight out before they cancelled all flights going into Cyprus for the caronavirus situation...
We were there a week and it was disheartening to hear the many stories of alot of the guests there wondering how they going to get home. I have to mention the staff from the reception to the bar staff, waiters, animation staff and cleaners went out their way for you knowing their jobs were coming to an end!the week was spent doing our normal thing which is just chilling as we both have challenging jobs. The food was lovely and the drinks were just house wine and not branded spirits, but being all inclusive we were able to sample the cocktails. could not go on walks about as shops bars and restaurants were all closed! The weather was sunny enough to sun bathe and come away with a tan. Well done for refurbishing the restaurant to make it look modern and hopefully other places will follow suit. Rooms were comfortable with a lovely beach view. Special mention to Tui rep Janet Mann and her team who went the extra mile to make sure things were put in place to get guests back home and to also help others who were not booked under Tui. Will definitely book again when this whole caronavirus situation has cleared up.
Firstly, I feel it only fair to put this review in context. We did not book to stay here, but at The Louis King Jason, an all inclusive adults only hotel. Now the King Jason is superb, first class food, great international wines and spirits included in the all inclusive...
However, quite unnecessarily in my opinion, we were thrown out of the KJ and put in here, well shocked is an understatement. This place is appallingly tatty, paint peeling off the walls, builders rubbish left all around outside that one has to look at, fabric peeling off the chairs in the bar etc. Also, the dining experience was terrible, just like a school canteen. Surly staff, wine that was so bad you would be better off going to the salad bar and drinking the vineagar and sprirts that would strip the paint off a car. The hot food was barely hot and staff with trolleys collecting plates and scraping waste into bins right by your table when you were eating so the smell was disgusting. Maybe people paid a lot less to stay here, and it is a disgrace we were placed here, but at any price some of the failings are basic and I would not expect in a hotel of any standrad or price. We will not return to any Louis hotel after this experience. All in all apalling!
