“Family run small guesthouse with courtyard restaurant-bar, home-cooked, mostly organic food from the family farm, and a pool. Great walking, birdwatching, and beach nearby. Would suit families.”

Hotel Review

Amarakos is the perfect antidote to the big, bland ‘bed factory’ hotels which sadly dominate so much of Cyprus. This family-owned collection of stone buildings comprises seven big rooms, traditionally furnished, around a flag-stoned courtyard which doubles as a café-restaurant in summer. The home-cooked, traditional food is freshly prepared, mainly based on locally-sourced organic products, and vegetarian dishes are a speciality of owner-cook Mrs Angela Economidou. Breakfast features freshly squeezed orange juice (the oranges grow in the courtyard), Cyprus ham, sausages, jam and halloumi cheese – or, if you prefer, a full English. There’s excellent walking all around, the beach is not far off, and there’s a good-sized pool. In the autumn shooting season, the hotel is favoured by hunters from Nicosia, Larnaka and Limassol – hence the number of camouflage-clad guests taking an early breakfast before setting off for a day slaughtering the local birdlife.
