Brochure Guide


Cyprus, where your time stands as still as the sea. Welcome to Cyprus, where your first visit will bring the second. It's the land that is free, the air so calm, and the people ideal. Relax and let the time float on, the pace of the island slow you down, and take in the beautiful scenery, which is spread across the isle.

Paphos review

"street trader a pain"

the reps on the street were a real pain in the butt. And in the heat you can do with out that. Very very very expensive, wish we'd gone all inclusive. The food was however very good though. Don't go to KFC it costs an absolute fortune. Roads are manic at all times so do take care. Lovely beaches though. The kings tombs were good.

I felt that there wasnt much to do around Paphos.

Be aware for their GREEN days (bank holidays), everything is closed.

Me and my partner went to do research for wedding. Im glad we didnt arrange anything as there was not many thing to do, especially for children.

Be aware that the food may be cheap, but the drinks are expensive

What we saw of Phaphos was scruffy, tacky and very touristy with English shops. Frankly could be anywhere with little character.

Arrived on the bus at the harbour (evening time) passed a Debenhams and Peacocks, (could have been in England). Walked to the harbour, constantly approached to eat in restaurants and loads of flies...

Historically there is a lot to see in Paphos, I just wish the locals would show more attention to their own historical sites. The food is mainly English with some Greek food that is of good quality. Avoid the chinese and Indian restaurants. Tomatoes locally are the best i have ever tasted in The Med!

A bit non descript really. Took the open top bus tour and it was dreadful. Took us past hotels, water park and mini golf. Saw a few historical sites, but not worth the time or money. Just very disappointing really.

There are many shops and restaurants closed down, making it look unkept. The harbour is much better with many restaurants and shops.

"Mayfair hotel and apartments "

I was told the Mayfair hotel and apartment was one of the best on the island. The harbour was the only night life in walking distance which takes about 15-20 minutes to walk .everything else is too far out need buses or taxi .

Protaras review

"Very Basic...."

86%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

The nearest beach was about 20 minute drive away, the nearest BAY was 10 mins walk away,it was quite a small bay but still quite nice, we did find a nicer bay which was down the same road the bus stop was on. we took a bus into the main part of protaras to fig tree bay which was more of a beach than the one nearer to the amore hotel. The cost of food and drink was reasonable, we went to a chnese restaurant just down the road whch was good value and really nice food!! There isn't a huge range of place to eat out in walkin distance (although it says the amore apartments are in protaras, it is more paralmni) it was a very very quiet part. There wasn't really any night life close to the hotel, it is deffinatly more a location for not doing anything apart from sunbathing and doing nothing. We did find an aqaurium about half an hour walk from the hotel (just past the roundabout) it was 11 euros each to get in which was abit of expensive i thought, it was kind of like a very mini tycross zoo, good for the little ones though. Apart from the aqaurium there wasn't really anything else to do apart from go to one of the bays or sit at a bar, unless you are willing to travel bout half an hour or so to get to the main part of protaras where we found loads more things to do and see. Overall i think its not a bad resort to go, i would recomend it if you want a super basic holiday with no night life, nothing to do and just sunbathing the whole time. Next time we go to Cyprus we will defo be stayin in the main part of proparas and not paralimni.

Protaras review

Really boring resort unfortunately. Only one restaurant around without taking a bus or taxi which is the Blue Spice which is very nice but a one off as very pricey. No night life really, except an Only Fools and Horses bar, which is good. Unfortunately didnt enjoy the holiday due to resort, booked 2 weeks, tried to get flights home after 6 days but were unable. We are a young couple and think its our own mistake but if your looking for a relaxed holiday or are an elderly couple and are also only going for 1 week might be ideal.
