Absolutely fabulous, from start to finish! The food was absolutely incredible!!! Bacchus in particular was outstanding in every way! We went there for dinner twice and the quality was on par with Michelin starred places in London- first class!!! The breakfast there was also much more enjoyable as the staff were outstanding as was the presentation of the food and the food itself. The resort was fabulous, although Pissouri Bay itself was a little sleepy.

The Columbia Beach has two aspects, one side is designed on a Cypriot village and the traditional interior is attractive but not for those guests who prefer a more modern style. The recently converted East side is more contemporary, with nautical influences the brand new, all marble bathrooms are truly charming. I would recommend staying the Cape Suite in the East wing with plenty of space, a gorgeous sea view from either of the two balconies and the pristine bathroom! The staff at Columbia Beach Resort highlights the Eagles Nest as their best rooms, being set back from the hotel there is more privacy and two of them even have a private pool be careful the lift shaft may block the scenic views of the bay!
The Cypriot traditional food at the Apollo Taverna restaurant was outstanding (especially the kleftiko) and if you venture a little further along the beach promenade of Pissouri Bay there is a wide selection of local meze spots!
An all-suite hotel, with an isolated beach and being so close to both Paphos and Limassol, Columbia Beach Resort is a great year-round destination. The beach during the low season may appear somewhat disorderly from the stormy weather conditions keep this in mind if youre a beach lover.

Make the most of the location of the Columbia beach and wander into the Cypriot village of Pissouri in the evenings to dine at the local tavernas where traditional Cypriot music livens up the atmosphere.
