Apologies to those who smoke, but I just can't stand the smell of it, indoors or outdoors, and neither can my kids!
We've booked flights to Paphos in Oct, and now looking for accommodation. Are there any hotels or other resorts on the island that have taken the step to ban smoking in the pool areas (I hate watching the kids splashing through all the fag-ash on the ground) and/or outdoor bars/restaurants (as I'd rather not sit down to a meal and have someone light up at the table beside me)?
We stayed at a campsite in Spain recently and the pool area there was designated non-smoking, although it wasn't really enforced, but it was a great improvement, and a surprise as I hadn't expected that in Spain. Unfortunately the people in the caravan next door were chain smokers so we couldn't sit out, and the restaurant was completely outdoors, therefore a no-go for us too. I sympathise with smokers, but don't think it's unreasonable to want to stay somewhere without our entire holiday being spoilt by other people's smoke. However given the culture in most Med countries, I'm not especially hopeful, but it's always worth asking!!
Thanks for any advice :)
