Crown Resorts Horizon is steps away from Coral Bay, a popular resort on the west coast of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The area's sandy beach has shallow water that is generally calm thanks to the headlands at either end of the bay. The hotel has an outdoor pool where you can join in aqua aerobics, plus a shallower one just for kids. There's also an indoor pool, along with a gym, a sauna and a treatment area where you can relax with a facial or manicure. Regular evening entertainment includes bingo and Greek nights. Coral Bay has a variety of cafÈs and restaurants, including some specialising in traditional Cypriot dishes and locally caught fish. In the evening, the bars along Coral Bay Avenue, known as The Strip, offer music and dancing, ranging from Cypiot folk shows to DJs and modern bands. There are a few shops and stalls around the area, but there is more interesting shopping to be found in Paphos, which is driving distance away from the hotel. In Apostolou Pavlou Street, the main road through the town, you will find workshops selling wood carvings and metalwork, or you can head to the market by the mosque to find souvenirs to take home.
Crown Resorts Horizon is on an incline 50m from the shops and restaurants of Coral Bay and 300m from the resort's beach. The bustling town of Paphos, which has a popular water park, is 15km away. As well as lively nightlife and sandy beaches, Paphos is also home to a medieval castle, an ancient ruined temple and an amphitheatre. The legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, Petra tou Romiou is 34.1km away from the hotel. This series of giant white rocks are just off the shore of a pebbly beach and you can take a stroll to watch the sunset or swim in the nearly deserted coves.

Myself and my best friend stayed here for 8 days middle of September 2020 during the Covid pandemic.
We went fully aware that things were not going to be open as usual or 'normal' due to the circumstances.
However, I have to say we both had a wonderful time, the hotel wasn't busy which meant you didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn just to reserve a sun lounger or cue for drinks, food etc. There wasn't any entertainment laid on and the pool bar wasn't open but social distancing was followed by all staff as was face coverings. It's a shame a lot of the guests had trouble following these rules though.
The hotel and room was a little bit tired looking but it was kept very clean and tidy, hand sanitiser was placed everywhere for guests and staff made sure they did their part too.
Staff were very friendly and attentive, always happy for a chat and laugh.
The on site shop was open and the lady in their was really nice, everything in their is slightly more expensive than in town but it's bound to be for the convenience.
Overall, we both had a really relaxing time and would defiantly recommend this hotel and would love to go back again once Covid is all over.
We chose this hotel 10 days before we went , as we'd had other holidays cancelled due to covid , Cyprus was on the list of no self isolate on return to UK, but to get to Cyprus you needed negative covid tests no older than 72 hours before travel , so was a gamble we'd get a test and results back in time , a lot of paper work to fill in for the government before flying , but we managed all this , masks on at Gatwick and through the flight, as we landed we were told our plane had been randomly chosen for us all to covid tests as we got off. This was all OK airport very quite , results by txt in 6 hours . Hotel was lovely very very quite no rushing for sunbeds in the morning , obviously not the verity of food that they would normally have but the quality was good . Obviou
sly a low level of staff all around the hotel , but every one of them chatty and making the best of things , the swim up bar wasn't open , but the poolside bar and everyone of the staff
on that bar were lovely and made our holiday , and my hot bloody marys lol just how I like them. If you walk through the hotel gardens you come to the shops and bars again very quite , but friendly staff every where , was sorry when we had to come home . Some beautiful sunsets seen here 😍
We stayed for a week all inclusive and were disappointed in general with the hotel and services offered.
The food is OK but a but repetitious. The drinks available at the bar were limited and even then bar tenders didn't bother making them properly and missed half the ingredients stated on the menu off. My son liked the moktails and we would ask for one he liked and were handed pineapple juice and lemonade. On the menu it stated orange juice, cranberry and lemonade. No mention of pineapple juice.
Apart from one young young girl the bar staff always looked bored and that you were troubling them when you asked for a drink.
There were ants in the room. Lots and lots of them. It seems they had made their home in the a/c unit and we reported it but no one ever came to check and we had ants crawling all over the walls in the evening and mornings.
No children allowed in the indoor swimming pool. We took our 5 year old to the pool on the second day he was really excited. We just entered when a rude lady at the spa said children weren't allowed in as there were people in using the spa. I was unhappy and said that we should have been informed that we could only use the pool at certain times. She then said we could use the pool as long as he was quiet and didn't make any noise. Not sure how she expects a 5 year old to go swimming and be silent. Anyway we declined as we knew our son loves swimming and would be excited to play in the water. There are no rules about kids using the pool according to reception but the spa staff ask they are quiet. How ridiculous. The indoor pool is small anyway but was split for private swimming lessons for local kids so there was barely any space.
Oh and there's no changing area or anything so you have to go to the side and dry yourself and either careful remove your swimming clothes trying not to drop your towel or try and get to your room without dripping everywhere.
