Paphos, Cyprus: Holiday review

  • Great Villa and Golfing Holiday in Paphos

    Review by: Mike Broomwoode

    Weather

    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.

    Review by: John Davies

    Weather

    We stayed in a villa, end of May, beginning of June.
    The weather was fantastic, we went to quite a few restaurants- all very good, enjoyed it that much we are going back for another two weeks at the beginning of September.

    Try and find a place called stone house restaurant and bar on the way to Peyia- very friendly.We also hired a car and travelled to Episkopi to see the ruins and then for a swim at Atcurium Beach, just below ruins- LOVELY.

    We went in Mid August. It was absolutely boiling and loved every minute of it. Altough was extremely hot around the pool, so we went by the beach as it was a bit cooler. By saying a bit I mean a BIT.

    Holiday

    Lovely and relaxing but still enough things to do near by. Beach was beautiful, If you walk up to the next hotel the beach outside was even better.

  • great relaxed holiday

    Review by: Cox

    Weather

    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.

  • Our holiday in Papho`s

    Review by: Jayne Towgli

    Weather

    We went to Paphos in the end of Sep until beginning of Oct 2010, the weather was very hot during the day and not much cooler at night but we enjoyed it all the same.

    Holiday

    The villa we stayed in was not brilliant, we were told by the pool cleaner that that particular area was the slum area, typical! So would definatly still go back as we always do, but certainly not that area in Kato again.

  • My villa holiday in Paphos

    Review by: John Richards

    Weather

    Weather very, very hot with high humidity, so during the day it was a little uncomfortable to do anything other than relax around the pool or go to the local beach.

    Holiday

    Great villa and super hosts. The villa Hieros Kepos in Geroskipou was ideal location for us, being quiet but not far to travel for the tourist hot spots. Check out the website for holiday details at
    www.cyprus-villa-holidays.co.uk.
    Loved Paphos and the area around Geroskipou. Local people very friendly. Really enjoyed the atmoshere here in Paphos and we will be back next year.

  • EXCELLENT GO TWICE A YEAR

    Review by: MICHAEL

    Weather

    Always go in May and the end of September. Teh weather is always good. I would recommend not to eat in the tourist rubbish, where the locals go is much better.I worked in Paohos and have always recommended to hire a car and explore the area to tourists.

    Holiday

    It is nice and relaxing, we went up the mountains. We also drove to Lachi and Polis which were also nice. We went to Oniels Bar on Tomb on the Kings Road quite a few times which was good.

  • Paphos Holiday

    Review by: Hayley

    Weather

    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.

    Holiday

    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.

    Weather

    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.

  • My Gorgeous sun filled holiday!

    Review by: Jody Price

    Weather

    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.

  • Beautiful Weather & Hotel - Rosatellos Cocktails A Must!!

    Review by: Donna

    Weather

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

    Holiday

    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.

  • Great Base to Explore From

    Review by: Jeff Noon

    Weather

    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.

  • Our family holiday in Cyprus

    Review by: Heather

    Weather

    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.

  • My holiday in villa outside Pathos.

    Review by: Selwyn Stephens

    Weather

    Warm and sunny by day, cooler in the evening.

    We had some slight rain one night but overall it was great.

    Holiday

    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.

  • Aquamare Beach & Spa Hotel

    Review by: Captain Beefheart

    Weather

    On the Monday we experienced the worst thunder storms they had had for many years, lasted three days.

    The rest of the time it was OK temp in the mid 70's.

    Holiday

    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

  • Crazy drivers & Bad pavement facilities could spoil a lovely resort

    Review by: Sandra Penrose

    Weather

    First and second week was hot and sunny during the day and warm in the evening.

    Into the third week it started to rain heavily and we had a couple of thunderstorms but it was still warm apart from a couple of nights when it was quite cool.

    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.

    Very hot first week, and hot second week.

    Thunder last 2 evenings.

    Hot at night, needed windows open or have the noisy air con on.

    Holiday

    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!

    I have been with my family in August when it is too hot really for the little ones, but october was brilliant, shorts & t-shirt in the day and a light cardy for the evenings.

    Came back lovely & brown after a week.

    Holiday

    Travelled with four children & hubby.

    Hired a car from Paphos Airport, and drove to our rented house on Ikaria Village, only 5 mins from the harbour front.

    This was really nice with three swimming pools, peaceful away from the noise.

    The Cypriots were very friendly and the food was brilliant.

    Really enjoyable, fabulous people.

    All the locals were extremely friendly and welcoming.

    If you are looking for a nice, relaxing holiday or a fun packed frenzy you're sure to enjoy it!

    The weather was fantastic!!
    HOT HOT HOT!!
    Around 36 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.
    You definitely needed air conditioning or you would have never slept at night with it been so humid!!
    But great in the day I LOVE A GREAT TAN TOO SHOW OFF AT WORK!!! HAHA

    Holiday

    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!!

    Weather was great, hot and sunny so nice to see a bright sky!
    Cooler in the mountains especially at night.

    Holiday

    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!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Review by: Steve & Maria

    Weather

    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

    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.
