Dont believe all you read.
"Don't believe all the negative reviews regarding this hotel. We found all the staff and management especially Christoper were very helpful the week we were staying there. We found the food and rooms acceptable especially in this current economic situation. The location of the hotel more than made up for any shortcoming. "

What can i say.... dont believe the reviews....
"Ok... so i'm on day 2, day 1 being my birthday, and i have 2 say wtf am i doing here...The food is reasonable but isn't that expected in any hotel that has 4 stars. Other than that, the entertainment is abysmal, i find myself back in my bedroom at 11.20 pm wanting listening to my headphones wishing i wasn't here... As a whole, the hotel has a very 90's feel, and if that's your thing then go for it, why not, but on the transfer down here i saw much better prospects, i just wish id been lucky enough to be booked into 1 of them. And as we speak, on the 'bazookie night'... im forced to put my head phones in to drown out the vile sound of what i can only call a Benidorm rip-off...Wish me luch for the next 8 days, thanks cosmos...(P.S, the alcohol they server is watered down and you will ahve an abundance of ants in your room...)"

"Jet 2 Holidays class this as a 4* hotel.
NOT in my opinion based on what we were met with when we were allocated our first room. BLACK mould all around the bath rim.Disgusting.
Lots of Russians with their very noisy children running wild during evening entertainment.
Food was bland and barely warm."

what a great holiday
"just come back from ascos had a great time. the food,staff where all friendly every night there was a different theme for the food the first night was chinese then italian and so on. the bread and butter pudding with custard is lovely.the only downfall is the location not much around but we went to relax anywhen. i would say that it is for adults only as not much to do for children and i would think they would easily get bored.the day and night entertainment by louisa and dimitri are good but the other entertainment was a bit non exciting need to review it. all in all great value for money and would go again."

NOT Adults Only
"This hotel is advertised as Adults Only in the summer months but I was advised that this is now not the case and has not been the case for at least two years.
The pool has a very steep slope which decends from 3ft to almost 8ft in a very short distance and the small area between 3-5ft is full of kids. I only went into the main pool once (I usually go into the pool every day when on holiday) but I could not enjoy a decent swim so settled for the small indoor pool.
Some areas of this hotel are a bit tired (roofing over bar and games area was tatty) but if you take away the kids running around the bar, entertainment areas, etc, this would have been a nice relaxing holiday. Whilst I was there games equipment was vandalised by kids staying at the hotel.
On a more positive note, the evening restaurant is extremely efficient and well run, with a variety of foods which are always served hot (unlike many all inclusive hotels I have experience in the past). Also I must congratulate Louise and Demitri (the entertainment staff) for handling all the daily events and hosting a great show every night - they were magnificent and very hard working.
Shops, tavernas and bus into Pafhos are only a 5 min walk away and bus runs every 15 mins til late so very user friendly, and only two euros for an all-day pass.
The boat trips from Pafhos Harbour are highly recommended."

"Just back from 2 weeks holiday at above hotel, staff, rooms,and food excellent, onlycomplaint we have was we booked for our 40th wedding anniversary, when booking we were told this was an adult only hotel, on arriving we found a lot of children, the rep. for our holiday firm was not helpful at all, considering all at the meeting told him this holiday was sold to us as adult only.

Best Holiday we have had
"We liked the hotel very much,great food. The air con in our room worked great. Room was cleaned every day with clean towels, sheets changed every three days. Coral bay beech was an easy 20 minute walk it was not big but nice and quiet toilets there and small cafe, cost 7.50 euro for 2 beds and an umbrella. Excellent bus service 2 euros each you can get on and off bus as many times as you like. This used to be an adult only hotel but children are allowed now, when we were there, there was only a few very well behaved children which was great!We will be booking to go again soon."

"Thought the hotel was wonderful for a relaxing holiday. Not a good choice if you want a decent beach on site, but there is a lovely beach at Coral Bay within a 20 min walk which is also a short ride on the great local bus service. Staff were superb, hopefully they can keep up the standard for the whole summer. Although we thought the hotel was child-free, there were a few, but none of them a problem. Breakfast and lunch is held in the poolside bar and the main restaurant with stunning views is kept purely for dinner and with a smart dress code in place it made it more of an event. Only down side was the evening entertainment. Although the small entertainment team tried hard, the professional acts selected to perform were below par. There are bars and restaurants within a five minute walk where the evening entertainment was better if you wanted it.
All in all I really feel as if I have had a holiday! Well done Ascos Beach. "

Great holiday at The Ascos
"We returned from Cyprus with very fond memories of the Ascos Hotel. To be honest, after reading the reviews other holidaymakers had put on we were not looking forward to the holiday as much as we should have been. The bad reviews turned out to be unfounded as far as we were concerned. The hotel was nice and clean, the rooms were cleaned evey day and contrary to what we had read on the review sites,the rooms were acceptably decorated. The bathroom was ready for a refurb, but this was only a few cracked tiles and discoloured grouting.
The food was really fantastic, they had a different theme each night, Cypriot dishes, Mediterranean, BBQ, carvery etc. There was lots of choice at meal times and the food was fab!!.
We went all inclusive, and were glad we did. The drinks were pentiful, there was even a waiter service to the poolside sun beds.
The pool area was kept very clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpful, in fact I don't have a bad word to say about the Ascos Hotel.
The beach was a 20 minute walk. There are bus stops 7 or 8 minutes walk from the hotel. Buses are very cheap, just 1 Euro will take you into Paphos town.
All in all I would definitely reccommend this hotel. I don't know what the problem was late last year with some of the reviews I have read, but they certainly seem to have sorted everything out now."

Better than expected
"The hotel is a little on the tired side, a bit old in some areas, especially the sea front bungalows but the rooms were all in a good condition and cleaned everyday. Our net curtains had a bit of mold on them but they were hidden away behind the curtains.
The pool was very nice and the gym was fairly well equipped. The sauna if you can be bothered to maintain it for a while can generate a decent experience but takes more work than it should.
The reception area is nice and airy and the evening restaurant is well done. The pool bar does well and the casual eating restaurant serves it's purpose.
The staff were generally very good and the food and drink certainly up to scratch.
I've seen a lot of reviews having a go at this hotel but we had a good holiday here and it looked like everybody else at the hotel was having a good time as well.
The entertainment wasn't all that good but we tend to steer away from that sort of thing anyway but it appeared well attended.
The hotel was not rowdy despite the availability of all inclusive alcohol.
Remember to pack decent clothes for the evening meal as there is a dress code that will be adhered to (I turned up in my usual holiday shorts so had to purchase some long trousers locally so I could use the restaurant in the evening)
All in all we had a good holiday and the hotel was certainly a big part of that. Would recommend it heartily but i'd say hire a car!

Grossly Overstated !!!!
"The Accomadation was in need of a massive refurbishment to bring it up to a 4STAR!
The bathroom :shower--you have to climb in the bath to shower: it is dangerous.. broken tiles.slippy floor as no hard mat for the floor...
The toilet pipe work needs attention..
The washbasin well used...
The airconditioning did not work..( so you had smells)
The sheets on the bed were old the blankets needed washing, just appalling.
The chairs on veranda needed cleaning.
As we were all inclusive,the food was just poor quality with little choice.
An extremely bad holiday leaving us with bad memories, never to return to the Ascos Hotel..

Disaster at the ASCOS
"We had been to the Ascos hotel before when it was a 4Star Hotel,now it is a 1Star Hotel,refurbishment was required to the Bathrooms..We arrived to an empty hotel bar 6 people where was everybody we asked at home not in the Ascos...It stayed that way for 2 weeks as the regular staff had gone home as the Ascos was closing down,pity they didn't tell us, the people already sitting it out said go back don't come in...
So the skeleton staff proceded to give us the disgusting food. As we were all inclusive it had changed to basic food programme, we complained nothing was done, we asked the Rep to come in,stayed the same NO CHOICE...
tHE food was appalling and was sent back on several occasions to their kitchen..........
We will never go to the Ascos Hotel again.."
