Brochure Guide


Cyprus is the island basked in 300 days of sunshine. Steeped in history, this little jewel in the med wont disappoint. For families, party goers and the old alike, there is something for everyone. East of the island is the resorts of protaras, paralimini and the party town of Ayia Napa. Mid-south is Limassol and the west is Paphos.

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

Limassol review

"Limassol"

The shops range from a modern side with Debenhams, Starbucks, MacDonalds et al. to the cobbled streets of the old town where bargains can be haggled for. I loved the old town. Limassol is quite busy and, for me, not particularly pleasant.

Paphos review

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

East of Limmasol, a bit run down and not much to do. Stay in the hotel or get a bus elsewhere. East of Limmasol, a bit run down and not much to do. Stay in the hotel or get a bus elsewhere.

Limassol review

"cats cats and shabby gardens"

78%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

We did have a good beach but we had to find it ourselves (just past Macdonalds). There was very poor lighting going to the main road and the pavements were uneven. However we were close to a small amusement park and had plenty of shops nearby for souvenirs and to do food shopping. The gardens surrounding our apartment were very poor - no grass and no flowers. There were also LOADS of cats surrounding the complex - not ideal if you are not a cat lover or are allergic to them.

Paphos review

"Paphos"

Open quote

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!

The whole area needs a complete make-over. The beach area does not have lighting switched on. All the shops sell the same goods, lots of Graffiti on lots of buildings.

Open quote

A drab place with little to do or see. I suppose if you were based within the town you may have a different view, but there are an awful lot of dilapidated buildings and what appears to be a lack of civic pride in the city.

Limassol review

We did not venture into Limassol itself so I can only comment on the Beach outside our hotel (Atlantica Bay Hotel). This area was quite scruffy unfortunately due to the building work close by. Sand is dark grey - not very enticing sadly.

It needs a wake up call, too much Grafitti and vandalism during our stay. Football hooligans caused a lot of damage while we were there, they made a lot of noise. the beaches are poor, not what I expected. The hotel was of a reasonable standard but not in a good location.

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.
