The hotel is situated in the upper part of Paphos. For us it was great, for we wanted to avoid the touristic area of the Harbour. To get to the beach, either you shoud take the bus or walk about 20 minutes.
The major part of the guests were British and Russian couples (mostly over 50, consider it was the end of september).
The pool was very nice and clean, but the opening time was too short, 09:00 to 18:00.
The hotel itself was quite clean and pretty, but as we entered the room, the cleaning was not satisfying (we found some hair and one nail).
The staff was helpful but not enough informed about the public bus.
What a wonderful place to spend 5 days at Christmas! The hosts of this quaint little hotel were kind, caring, and very hospitable. They made my daughter and I feel very welcome and always surprised us with fresh fruit, and home baked goodies. Friendly smiles, willingness to help in every way possible, and genuine care and concern made Mariela Hotel our home away from home. The rooms were well equipped to serve our every need and were exceptionally clean. The hotel was centrally located, within walking distance to everything Polis could offer. I would love to go back!
