Ein sehr schönes Hotel mit eigenem Swimmingpool. Weil britische Kolonie(Zypern) überwiegend von Briten bewohnt. Wegen der Liebesgöttin Aphrodite und der kleinen Kirche direkt neben dem Hotel wird das Hotel auch als Hochzeitshotel genutzt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Apprehensive about going to Cyprus since a bad experience with timeshare touts no need to worry they don’t seem to exist anymore.Arrived to a warm welcome from guest service Christina.Lovely room sea view deluxe.We had an all inclusive premium package well worth the money as you can use the a’la’cart restaurant s as much as you like if like us you find buffet a bit repetitive.We did use the buffet and very nice it was but the steaks you get in the a’la’cart were the best quality we have ever tasted ,well done chef

Returned on 16th Sept 2018 after 7 fabulous days in this lovely hotel. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, we celebrated our wedding anniversary and given cake, wine, fresh fruit and champagne which was a very thoughtful gesture. The food was delicious, room spacious and pool and sunbathing areas kept really clean. I treat myself to a massage at the spa to help pain in upper back and neck, it was absolutely amazing, I came out feeling so relaxed and had less pain too, a visit to this spa is something I highly recommend ! Hotel right on the beach and easy to get either local taxis or buses into paphos town. Would recommend for relaxing holiday !

Had a lovely 10 days at this hotel - food is really great, so much choice at every meal. Loads of gorgeous fresh fruit, yoghurts, full on English breakfast along with every other possible thing you could think of for breakfast! Dinner also had oooodles of choice with plenty of hot & cold buffet with all the usual fabulous fresh salad, cheeses, freshly cooked fish or meat and a great Chinese area where various Chinese dishes were cooked fresh every day. Amazing array of puddings, although I stick with fruit my hubby thoroughly enjoyed a good bowlful most nights! Room was comfortable, shower was awesome. Nice bed with gorgeous pillows!There was a Coffee machine in the room along with small fridge for drinks (you can buy water, coke etc in the hotel shop at v reasonable price). We had a sea view room and the sunset views were incredible! If you buy a bottle of water from the pool bar it’s €1.70 but in the hotel shop it’s .65 cents for a much bigger bottle. Not a big drama but over 10 days can add up! The pool is lovely if a little warm - I’m an early riser so was down at the pool most mornings by about 6.30/7am. If you want a ‘prime spot’ around the pool most of the beds had gone by 7.30/8am. There are plenty of beds on the grassy area and also the beach - there’s a lovely breeze at the beach as it can get super hot round the pool. Only thing that lets this hotel down is the evening ‘entertainment’ which was truly awful and consisted of (mainly) dated, almost embarrassingly bad singers who droned on throughout dinner & into the evening. There was 1 singer who was from the UK and did some quite good covers one night but apart from that, it was just dreadful. If only this hotel invested in some sort of entertainment it would make such a difference. Paphos itself (the harbour area) is a 10 min bus ride for €2.50 each way, a taxi is €13 return. Wasn’t great only because it was all just Brit ‘tat shops’ to be perfectly honest. Sun creams, hats, inflatables, nothing Greek or Cypriot. Restaurants all looked v British too - I get this as most tourists were British but personally I would prefer something a bit more authentic. Overall loved the hotel but wouldn’t go back to Paphos.

Sehr angenehmes Hotel. Freundlicher Service. Gutes, reichhaltiges Essensangebot. Ein schöner entspannter Urlaub. Jeden Abend Live-Musik. Direkt an der Strandpromenade gelegen (aber ca. 3 km vom Hafen entfernt). Ein rundum zufriedenstellender, erholsamer Urlaub.

Just returned from a week holiday at this wonderful hotel. After a slight room issue, which was quickly & professionally handled by Valia, we soon realised that this indeed set the scene at the Pioneer Beach. The staff were attentive, conscientious, knowledgeable and nothing was ever too much trouble. The food was plentiful and of a very high standard and the a la carte restaurants were exceptional. The whole ambience of the hotel portrayed tranquillity & calmness....a credit to all concerned.

Had a fantastic week long holiday at the Pioneer and would certainly recommended you holiday here. The staff were brilliant and couldn’t do enough. The food was amazing and would absolutely recommend you go all inclusive which includes brand name shorts and spirits which were great and access to the al a carte for 2 visits. Not usually a fan of bbq and mass catering but this hotel as git it right so we’ll done. My only word of caution is the beach which doesn’t look like anything in the picture so initially really disappointed but got over it. Would ideally have given 4 1/2 stars do big thanks to all x

We have stayed at the Pioneer hotel several times and will be back next year again. It is the best hotel. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. The spa is fantastic and the a la carte dining is wonderful. We stayed in a superior delux room and the view was superb.

We are just back from a 10 day stay at this hotel, and there are positives and negatives in my option, I’ll start with the positives. Most members of staff are absolutely amazing, both attentive and polite and most went out of their way to ensure we were happy, especially the blond haired lady in the superior dining room. The food was the best I’ve eaten at any hotel I’ve ever stayed at! The quality and choice were out of this world, I however wasn’t keen on the themed night buffet and BBQ but I don’t really like BBQs anyway. My partner and I also dined at the restaurant overlooking the beach and in all honesty neither of us were overwhelmed by the quality or choice here, however it was a beautiful beautiful setting and was never busy. The entertainment was most nights average apart from a Wednesday when they had a chap from Wales come in to sing and play various guitars, if you can he’s certainly worth sticking around the hotel for! As are the aqua fit classes in the pool given by a great young man. And there was a fab jetty a little walk along the beach which allows great sea swimming too! The negatives.. The hotel although clean and well maintained is very dated and reminded me very much of the film ‘The Shining’ with just 2 lifts to service the entire hotel which were so incredibly slow it became frustrating. The photos of the beach and pool area DO NOT reflect even remotely the photos that are shown on the website, there are far too many sunbeds surrounding the pool, all grass areas and also the beach and are so tightly packed together it felt a little uncomfortable, and to get a bed by the pool was impossible as these were reserved by 5am every single morning by guests who didn’t even start to use them until gone 11 in some cases! The website is very misleading in what it claims to offer as the reality of what it delivers is very difficult and because of this sadly I wouldn’t return to this hotel.

We just love this hotel it is a true 5* experience from start to finish. Every member of staff work so hard to make sure you are looked after.The food is superb something for everyone , the themed nights are just wonderful and again all staff working so hard to make sure you are looked after. Christina is just amazing so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We will be visiting again next year and cannot wait.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sensimar Pioneer beach hotel. The staff were excellent, the guest services manager was fabulous. We upgraded to junior suite on the fourth floor for our last week. The suite was generous size with the most beautiful bathroom. We didnt want to leave and will certainly be returning soon. The holiday was very relaxing and very good value. A great time all rounda and will highly recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

We booked the Pioneer Beach Hotel for 1 week in late August with little research. So we were some what apprehensive having read poor reviews that turned out to be faux. We had a superior inland room, which we were very pleased with and went all inclusive expecting to want to eat out. This was not the case, the food was amazing. Yes we enjoyed the evening meals in the Mediterranean restaurant more than the buffet but there was plenty to chose from and the two theme nights were lovely. We knew the dress code for men and my partner had no issue at all with wearing trousers on an evening. Breakfast was equally amazing with a huge variety of foods. We enjoyed drinks and cocktails on an evening outside the Marco Polo Bar - we thought the entertainment was low key, back ground - ideal for what we wanted. We didn’t go to the sports bar. We were perfectly happy relaxing on the loungers in the day but wanted to hire a car for the day. We asked Christina for ideas. She couldn’t have been more helpful with this and drew us a route and gave us information about the various places. The staff were very friendly and helpful particularly Christina and Nickos the manager. We had the best holiday and will definitely be going back.

This hotel promised much in its literature and reviews. It surpassed all of them and gave us the best couples holiday we have had. The service was excellent and the staff couldn’t do enough for you. The facilities were spotless and great care seemed to be taken in everything to ensure a relaxed atmosphere. The food was lovely and we both drained a few pounds even allowing for spending time in the gym to ease the guilt. Thanks to all the staff

Our travel agent somehow managed to book us the wrong room despite us asking for the same accommodation that we had a year earlier. The hotel understood our problem but could only provide what the agent asked for. This was a standard room not the superior room that we had last year. We could have an upgrade but we would have to pay for it. The travel agent was also understanding and offered to make up the difference between their’s and the hotel’s charge. We went ahead with the upgrade and paid the hotel. The hotel then upgraded us again at no extra cost to a junior suite. We were extremely happy with the outcome and the hotel staff especially Valia were both understanding and helpful. Thank you!
