Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean situated to the extreme North East of this sea. Cyprus can be described as the meeting point of three continents - Europe, Asia and Africa, and this is certainly reflected in the Cypriot heritage of architecture, food and people. This was my...

Good

Pretty Harbour, friendly and lots of history

Sprawling, time share touts and expensive

Tourism didn't arrive in the small town of Paphos until the 1980's and I didn't arrive until December 2007. It was Christmas and I wanted to see my son who was based in Athens at the time. As I didn't really fancy spending Xmas in a bustling, over-crowded and polluted city like Athens, I chose to...

I have never written a travel review before, and to be honest, haven’t really read that many either. Therefore, I’m not really sure of the customary layout, so I’m going to do mine in the form of a holiday diary. Last week, my boyfriend and I went on holiday to Cyprus. We had been planning to go...

I have just returned home after a couple of weeks in Paphos. This is my seventh visit to Paphos over 3 years. This time it was very different. Being my first visit since Cyprus changed over to Euros in Jan 2008, I was amazed to notice the changes that had already been made. The Harbour had...

After coming back from one of the worst holidays i have ever had in Cyprus, my mind is zooming back to a wonderful holiday i had in Cyprus 3 years ago. Pafian Sun Holiday Village in Paphos was an absolute delight. The rooms were clean and modern (consisting of a double bedroom and a sleeping area...

Get a tan, even in January

Gets very busy in season

I spent ten days in Paphos at the beginning of January. I expected it to be warm but hot enough to get a tan. I was wrong. It was hot and sunny every day. Temperatures were around 73 fahrenheit for most of the day. It was a bit cooler at night. The harbour, or old post of Paphos is a pleasant and...

Gulp! I thought we had wandered into a Grey Big Belly convention by mistake. I felt so inadequate. I tried expanding my tummy as I sat down but, no matter what I did, it seemed nothing in comparison to the gentleman sitting next to me. He had on a tight blue vest emblazoned with the words 'U.S...

This was our second visit to Cyprus. The first time was 3 years ago and that time we stayed in the beautiful resort of Protaras. While we were there we visited Paphos for the day and we decided that the next time we came to Cyprus we would give Paphos a go. We booked our holiday with...

Main resort area very English,

I spent two weeks in Paphos August 2000. It is said to be the quietest main resort in Cyprus but I was quite surprised! It has an unlimited amount of pubs/bars and restaurants in the main streets near the harbour. These are all a bit touristy but make quite a good atmosphere. There is a few bars...

“Holidays go too quickly”

published 24/04/2003

sunny, lots to see, reasonabley priced

not many beaches

I’ve recently returned from a week in Paphos, Cyprus and had a great time. But now it’s back to work and routine. I’d have posted this sooner but my naughty computer has been playing up. We stayed in an apartment complex just outside Paphos. Paphos is a resort in the west of Cyprus. It’s divided...

“I Left My Heart In Paphos”

published 29/05/2001

Immaculate, friendly and cheap!!

At some point you have to fly home!!

It is no wonder whatsoever that Cyprus is the 'island of Aphrodite', the Goddess of Love, as I certainly left *my* heart behind. I stayed in Paphos, in the residential part, and met many of the local people who are all so friendly and can't seem to do enough for you. Paphos is split into two...

“Cyprus, Paphos July 2005”

published 23/08/2005

So hot you could fry an egg on your head

tacky touristy gifts, exchange rate

This was to be our second holiday abroad this year and for two weeks my family and I were looking forward to all the good things we had heard about this Island and it's people. There were six in our party, my wife and (nearly) three year old daughter, my parents in law and my wife's neice(aged...

Not a beach resort.

My wife and I, now in our early sixties, have had holidays in Paphos on four occasions over the last 8 years, always in late February or early March. At this time of year the weather is usually pleasantly warm, around the high 60s to low 70s fahrenheit with plenty of sunshine, although odd rainy...

We have visited Paphos a number of times and each time, we enjoy it more. The country itself is easy quite beatiful, it is easy tour , it has excellent roads, and the Cypriot people are warm and friendly. As a bonus for us unilingual folk, 90% or more Cypriots speak excellent English but is also...
