Weath was very mild, approxiamtely low 20s centigrade, with cooling winds at times to make the heat more bareable.

Holiday

It was a very nice and quiet holiday, although the hotel was reasonably full.



Places Recommended

I would highly recommend visiting the Tombs of the Kings, as well as bus tours to the Troodos mountains and the surrounding local area. There were numerous churches and monasteries on the tours.

holidaying for 10 days from 4 november 1913 to 14 november and the weather was sunny and perfect every single day. Sea bathing was warm and swimming excellent.

Holiday

first time in paphos was a let-down as our. expectations were completely unrealistic and shocked at the huge housing estates and developments and unfinished developments around.

Almost an up market blackpool on the Harbour. Wanted to return home on first day of seeing Pathos Harbour shops.

Large gangs of Cypriot school teenagers to circumnavigate on the Harbour front as well. After visiting antiquities, museums, mosiacs and Trodos mountains and the beautiful beaches and coves further along where it was peaceful and tranquil we would return to cyprus but further away from Paphos with own car transport included with villa.

Of course I have to remind myself that we are of retirement age now!.

Places Recommended

Would recommend antiquity and mosiac museum and artifacts, trodos mountains, Turtle beach, Coral Bay Lara beach and akamas peninsula (beware no signs).

If you want high rise British store departments and supermarkets, malls, cheaply priced restaurants bars cafes trinket shops cinemas and nightclubs then Pathos town and harbour would be an excellent holiday. Without the non stop sunshine and warm seas you could be back home.

The family holiday in the Villa Hieros Kepos, Geroskipou, Pahos was exactly what we all needed. A quiet location, peaceful and very relaxing surroundings and very helpful owners who arranged cheap car hire for us. The villa has its own private heated swimming pool, spa hot tub for that great relaxing final dip of the day and of course, the BBQ for those super evenings when eating outdoors is a must. The sea views and sunsets are to die for...

The Cypriot people are really friendly and I felt at home straight away. I highly recommend anyone that has not been to Cyprus and in particular, Paphos to make that first time visit and then like us, you will want to return to the historical Island.

Places Recommended

Troodos Mountains - Cedar Valley - Polis - Latchi - Lara Bay (turtles nesting grounds) Petra tou Romiou (the rising of aphrodite out of the sea) - Tomb of the Kings - Pahos Castle to sea glorious sunsets.
Many more historic sites and tourist visitor centers that I can not all.

The weather was beautiful and hot.

Holiday

My holiday was exactly what I needed, quiet, peaceful and very relaxing.

The people were really friendly and I felt at home (I am half Cypriot, never been to Cyprus yet everyone seemed to know I am Greek...which felt great).

I didn't go for a hedonistic time, just to experience a little bit of the country, swim in the sea and relax.

The food however, was a let down. All restaurants catering for the English palate. Steak Diane, anyone?!

The Greek food that was on offer was poor - taking advantage, perhaps of the fact that most people wouldn't know any different... But going to a touristy spot with loads of ex-pats, so what should one expect?!

Anyway, food aside, I would definitely go again!

Places Recommended

I went to the ruins which were amazing.

The beaches are small and intimate but that suited me perfectly.

We always go in May as the weather is just right for us and as good as you ever get in any UK summer, period.

Holiday

We always stay in the villa Hieros Kepos in the village called Koloni, very close to Geroskipou, which is only 5k from Paphos sea front. The villa has great sea views, a hot tub, BBQs and air conditioning units included in the rental. Reasons we stay here is that the hosts, John & Ann, always ensure we have all we need to have a perfect holiday and now I take my golf clubs because only 2k away from the villa is the new golf course called Elea Estates Golf Club, built by Sir Nick Faldo, and the views are spectacular.

Paphos was my first holiday abroad. I went at the end of June 2009 with my family. It was quite quiet at this time of year but at least it made it easy to get a sun lounger!
The weather was lovely, very hot midday up to 34 degrees, got a bit cooler at night.

Holiday

We stayed at the Pandream Apartments and couldn't of wished for a better apartment to stay at. Very clean with a lovely view from the balcony. The staff were very friendly and even kindly helped us get back into our room at 3am when our key card wasn't working.
Paphos is a very relaxed island with lovely scenery. Suitable for families and couples. There are plenty of great bars like Pagasus bar, The Black Rose and Crocodile Pub each with friendly staff who also offered us free deserts and tea.

Places Recommended

Coral Bay beach.
Bar street for a lively party atmosphere.

In July and August it is too hot and humid to do anything at all apart from sun bathe, even in the evening walking out for a meal you are sweating.

The holiday was relaxing, they were very friendly people. We got cheaper flights into Larnaca, so decided to hire a car, maybe it would have been better to have paid a bit more and gone into Paphos airport. Would love to try this country in May/June time.

Crocodile pub on the Triangle is a fantastic drinking place with great staff, St Pauls Pillar restaurant brilliant, Brothers set menu a good cheap meal. Rib Shack excellent food but service is shocking they do not deserve the custom.

Very hot, 30-35 in the day and 25-30 in the evenings. Rather humid at times which can make it difficult to get about during the day, but if heat is your thing then this is definatley the place.

Holiday

Overall, awful. We went for a wedding and that was fabulous, but the rest on the whole I wouldn't bother with. If your idea of a great holiday is sitting by the pool then get drunk in the evenings, this is your place, but I would save your money and go somewhere cheaper for that.
However, there are places of historical interest and if you go to the Tourist Information they are really helpful. Don't let paphos put you off Cyprus, it's just been too built up, that's all.

Places Recommended

Tomb of the Kings and the Archelogocal park.
Flintstones bar and the Mandra Taverna.

Avoid the Pelican bar by the Harbour - awful service and disgusting food.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous, 1 or 2 days were cloudy but boiling as the sun still came out, on average each day it was between 30-33 degrees, I wore factor 30 suncream everyday and ive came home golden brown and quite dark. The evenings were about 28-30 had to have the air conditioning on most of the time, You soon get used to the hot sun and its enjoyable I absolutely loved it, We were on holiday with our 4 year old and he was absolutely fine with the sun he loved it, he had factor 40 everyday and he is golden brown.

Holiday

We stayed in Kato Paphos, the first place we stayed was Paradise Kings Club which were very lovely apartments but also very quiet which we loved, Its a bit of a walk to the shops and restaurants but worth it. We moved the second week to the Royal Seacrest Apartments which are almost situated on Tombs of the Kings Road, absolutly perfect location, just a 3 min walk and your there by everything. Each day of the holiday was great, we were out everyday exploring new places. Found Paphos to be quite expensive in general but you soon find places to suit your budgets we did a big food shop on the first week and that saved us a bomb.

Places Recommended

Fat mamas is an absolute must!!! The portions are HUGE!! Worth every penny and also the kids will love it as they have entertainment! We went to coral bay it was ok quite busy and very hot, The best beaches to go are the little ones you see scattered everywhere there quieter, We used the bus service everyday It was 1,50c very easy to use. Overall this was a perfect holiday and paphos definatly has my good reviews!

We went to Pahos in September 2009 and although we had a couple of overcast days the weather was beautiful.

We stayed at the Athena Royal Beach which was so faultless we're actually returning there in a couple of days time. The Athena Royal is adults only but its sister hotel the Athena Beach is right next door and very child friendly. The views across the beach are beautiful and you're just a short walk away from the harbour.

Places Recommended

Rosatellos - Paphos -We came across a family run cocktail bar/restaurant on our 3rd night there. The staff and cocktails were so amazing we returned most evenings on our way back to the hotel, and even stopped by for a couple of light lunches. There were 3 large tvs for anyone missing the sport, but they didn't intrude so much so that it ruined the atmosphere if you just wanted a cocktail in peace and to watch the world go by. The menu is extensive and we even had some made up on the spot for us. If you want somewhere to go where you can truly take avantage of the wonderful local hospitallity then this is the place for you!! Family friendly, even offering non alcoholic cocktails!! Mum, Dad, and daughters all make for a pleasant lunch/evening. We can't wait to go back in a few days time!!

Warm sunny and just perfect. Try to do the energitic things in the mornings or the evenings. The afternoons heat can be fierce. It was for us in the mid 30's.

If it all gets too much drive into the mountains and find a shady taverna.

Holiday

We had a great time in June 2010. The weather was excellent, the hotel was just great (Atlantica Golden Beach) and the people of Cyprus, just make it what it is. Warm and Friendly. I can't think of another place were you are made so welcome.

Places Recommended

We hired a car for a couple of days, which we think is a must if you want to get out and about on the Island. Latchi and Aphordities bathing pool is a really good place to visit and take the nature trails further in for a look at what is was always like. Agios Georgios is a wonderful spot, lovely church, great views and full of Interest. Try a trip into the mountains to cool off and have great views, visits to monastries and peaceful lunches in village taverners.

The weather was fantastic. We had 1 big rain shower and the kids thought it was great as they were really HOT and it cooled them down nicely. It only lasted 15 minutes and then the sun came back and it was as if it had never happened.

Other than that the weather has always been fantastic. We go every year as my family has an apartment in Peyia just up from Coral Bay.

Holiday

Our holidays have always been great - i've been going there every year since I was 10. Now at 24 I have my own children, one who is 6 and one of 3. I take them and to be truthful I wouldn't take them anywhere else. The people are really friendly and very good with children. Overall I would say its a great family holiday, my kids never have any complants and always look forward to their next holiday.

Places Recommended

I would say that the tombs of the kings is a must. If you do go try to go in the morning as the heat at midday can sometimes be really hot and it makes it harder to enjoy walking around.

Also if you want good shopping the Kato Paphos market at the top if the hill is also a must. Bargins galore and the food is better value for money.

The best beach has to be Coral Bay. As you arrive at the beach the parking is not that great so if possible park in Coral Bay Strip and enjoy the walk down to the beach. When you first get onto the beach alot of people stay where the crowd is but if you go for a short walk there is always a chance you will find your own little patch with no one else around. What more could you want. We love Cyprus and I think you would too.

Warm and sunny by day, cooler in the evening.

We stayed in a villa at Chlorakas.

The price of food was high and booze also was expensive at some places.

Spirits were very cheap in the small shops around the harbour. A litre bottle of Famous Grouse was 10 Euro whereas a shot of the same in a bar was costing 4.5 Euro.

Some wine was cheap in Carrefours.

We were 2 couples with no children in tow. The Villa had a pool so we spent a lot of time there.

We hired a car for a week and went up the coast to Polis and Coral Bay. The driving is poor so be careful and pavements do not exist.

If you do drink then take some wine boxes with you and as much food as you can. If you are self catering, dont waste space on clothes.

Places Recommended

Best beach was Coral Bay.

Limassol is nice as is Latchi.

Be careful in some of the harbour cafes, overcharging was a problem. The euro has certainly pushed some prices up.

Due to the bad weather just chilled out on the grass in front of the hotel by the sea for the rest of our stay.

Overall we found it to be very expensive,mediocre bottle of wine in the hotel was £18, cup of tea £2.60, but this was in a 4 star establishment.

Eating out seemed to be in the same vein, indifferent selection of uninspiring dishes all with chips. For anything more exciting the prices were the same as back home.

Food in the hotel was generally good with an interesting selection of a'la carte dishes

Think the heavy rain is unusual for this time of the year.

Holiday

Have been going to Paphos for 21yrs and always enjoy it.

Since the Euro the prices have gone up but still find it value for money. There are plenty of restaurants doing 3 course meals for between 10 / 15 eu. The supermarket prices are about the same as in the UK.

Have to agree with the previous review about the drivers. They seem to have no regard for pedestrians. We nearly got hit crossing a level crossing when a car overtook the car which had stopped to let us cross. We were very shook up.

They park anywhere even on the zebra crossings. It is very difficult for pram and wheelchair users to get about. Also it is about time they sorted the pavements out as in a lot of places you have to walk on the road which is very scary.

During the day the coastal path down to the harbour is a lovely safe walk.

Noisy, fast, crazy drivers, made life as a pedestrian very scary! Vehicles parking on pavements and ignoring double yellow lines, provided a difficult passage esp. for pushchairs /wheelchair users and partially sighted pedestrians, and those from the older population with impaired mobility. Beware when crossing the road, local drivers are not the best at stopping for pedestrians trying to cross - not even on a "zebra" crossing! Boy racers and speeding traffic does not give a peaceful holiday or a good nights sleep. Work starts early in Paphos 4.30 am, or was that the night shift going home?

Very expensive drinks and mediocre coffee every where for 2-4 euros per luke warm cup!

Paphos is a great place in Cyprus, we stopped in the Paphian bay hotel, and you could not ask for a better hotel.
It seems though that all the hotels are excellent in Paphos anyway!
The people are so nice and love children!
There was not a huge amount of nightlife it is mainly all hotel based.
The complete opposite to Ayia Napa in that respect, but we had a great time!
I would recomend not to go any less than half-board as it is a very expensive place!!

There is a little sight seeing at Coral Bay but not a lot.
We enjoyed a days shopping in Nicosia but it got even hotter than 40 degrees, so slap on the cream!!
That was all we really did because it was so hot!

We were dismayed at the dryness of the island and lack of green scenery.
Lots of ugly blocks of flats and then too many houses built on the mountainside.
Accommodation in the mountains was tiny and pretty bad so we left early.
Accommodation in Paphos was at the cross street of two main roads; noisy and depressing, so we went back to the mountains and found somewhere better.
Food was tourist based and always chips chips and chips, pretty bad!
No colourful vegetable markets; no colour in the villages, no wonderful old buildings.
No culture it seems; someone in Limassol told us all the old buildings pretty much had been ripped down. Nothing like Greece!

Paphos is just to best place to holiday. But choose your holiday dates carefully according to temperature.

Holiday

Having been to Paphos half a dozen times. This is the only place to holiday for me. Great people, great weather, great places to eat. However, I agree with other reviews. Since joining the EEC Cyprus is becomimg more and more expensive. This could in the end prove a problem.

Places Recommended

Hire a car or use public transport which is quite cheap and very reliable. There are to many places to list. Both up in the mountains through the passes to visiting sites and beaches around the coast. There are plenty of organised trips or get one of the many site seeing guides and use the hire car. But do'nt miss the many places to eat in the evenings in and around the back road of Paphos.

Weather

Weather very hot, sunny every day for two weeks we were there.
Night times can be a bit to hot !! Watch out for sun burn which is very easy to do. We have been to Cyprus 6 times over the last 5 years.
Don't think it ever rains in the summer.. and there is a massive water shortage...

Holiday

Great holiday, but Paphos is getting very expensive now they have gone to Euro for example last year a beer in Cyprus pounds was around �1.50 sterling this year it was around 2.5 / 3 euro thats over �2 sterling.
A meal 3 Course with wine around �6 - �7 pounds now around 13 Euro around �11 sterling.
But we still love it and the Sun does Shine !!!!!!

Places Recommended

Pub to go in Damn Yankees (next to Sixties) ask for Nigel (he is so funny when you get to know him)

Food at Yankees also very good

Very hot and humid, could get burnt instantly!
Wandered around in just a swimming costume and flip flops all the time, put a sarong on or long t shirt when I went into shops, but for the girl who will always wear loads of clothes, I wore next to nothing.

Holiday

Amazing, favourite one apart from Disneyworld :) lots to do, but it was nice to sit by the pool, I seriously want to move out to Paphos now, one of the only holidays I can visualize myself actually being on.
Feels like a second home, and the people are lovely :)

Places Recommended

Troodos mountains
Jeep Safari, make sure you do jeep and not coach, it's better,
Paphos watersports!
UFO boat especially, paragliding is awesome too. Pinguinos : favourite restaurant!
Tea for two was pretty nice too!

As always the weather was fantastic, almost unbroken sunshine for the whole 7 days we were there.
Evenings were hot but comfortable (as long as you wear shorts and tee shirt).
Don't consider going to any hotel that doesn't have air con you simply won't sleep.

Holiday

This is the 5th time we've been to Paphos but the first time we have spent any time on the beach within Paphos.
Not as pretty as Coral Bay but perfectly nice and the sea breeze helps keep the temperature a little more comfortable, thats when there is a sea breeze.
The road down to the harbour has no been pedestrianised and looks lovely although they seemed to be setting it up to let some traffic through when we were there.
Paphos is great although the only downside is that it is probably 10-20% dearer than other Greek Islands

Places Recommended

Stroll down the front towards the harbour at night for a nice relaxing way to walk off your meal before going for a drink

Really hot all day and only slightly cooler at night. The humidity was between 80 and 90 during the morning but a nice breeae in the afternooon. Aircon is a must!

Holiday

I have my own place so it was very relaxing and peaceful. Got to see a lot of the island as we hired a car.

Places Recommended

The beach at Polis is lovely and not as crowded as Coral Bay!!
Othellos restaurant serves really good food at reasonable prices.
THE FIRST AND LAST pub next to the Almond Tree is just about the best pub in the bar street area.

The weather was absolutey beautiful, hot , humid and extremely sunny. Trousers are a no go even at night time, pack plenty of shorts and strappy tops.

Holiday

By far the best holiday I have ever had, the place was out of this world, it wasnt like been in Europe at all, rather like been somewhere far far away. I've already booked to go back at the end of September.

Boiling : it was a heat wave, but I did not complain but the very young were not as happy as me.
Beware as Paphos weather can get quiet uncomfortable.

Also watch out for the humidity as that was up to 80% while we were there, so dont pack your jeans !

Holiday

The holiday was amazing there was 24 of us that went over for a wedding and Paphos has something for everyone young and old.

Coral Bay or a night life one its all catered for in Paphos.

Places Recommended

Coral Bay and the Harbour also the tombs was a pleasant morning out as well.

The holiday in it's self was amazing.
The hotel was beautiful and there was always something to do, or somewhere to go.

Places Recommended

If your young and love night life then bar street is a must with hotspots like Rainbows nightclub!
Coral bay is lovely for it's long stretch of beach.
then the harbor for lot's of shopping!
And a hotspot for something to eat the famous Fat Mamma's is a must!

we went December 30th for a week and the weather was like nice spring days except one day when we had quite a lot of rain

Holiday

we were very pleasantly surprised at the lovely accomodation and surroundings of the holiday village, the pools were lovely although too cold to use at that time of year. The staff and cleaners were friendly but not all the restaurants were open due to the low season.

In the season there is lots for children to do.

At that time of the year there is not a great deal of nightlife but this suited us.

Places Recommended

The Harbour is nice with two pink Pelicans, the buses are very frequent and cheap with really friendly drivers

Easily in walking distance to other places to eat and definately suited to all tastes.
