This was the second time we had booked Apartment Diana, we had two weeks holiday there five years ago. Everything was much the same as last time and we had an enjoyable holiday. I recommend that older travellers would benefit by hiring a car.
We stayed for almost 2 weeks in this lovely apartment and really enjoyed it. The booking was easy and Alan reacted quick to every email. When we arrived there was a welcome package (bread, water, juice, milk, coffee, tea etc.) which was nice because we arrived in the evening. The apartment was clean and spacious and comfortable and comes with a lot of extras. There were books, games and dvd's so no need to be bored if you decide to stay at home. Information on things to see and do was also provided. The apartment is close to the harbour, bars and restaurants (a 15-20 minute walk) and the 603 bus stop is close by. I definitely recommend this apartment!
When we arrived the owner had arranged for milk, cereals, water, coffee and tea, all you need until you go to the shops which was very thoughtful as we arrived at night.
The apartment complex was clean and the apartment was very clean and comfortable and had everything you need for your stay, DVD’’s, books and games the owner has thought of everything.
Just looking over the pool from the balcony was a set of sunbeds locked exclusively for the apartment, also he left lots of very handy additional items for the beach like parasols, chairs and a cooler.
The location is good to get to most places we had a car and the parking was good, you could walk to a local diner two roads away for breakfast lunch and dinner and there are lots of supermarkets near for home cooking and the kitchen was well stocked for what you need for cooking.
We had a late departure time and Alan kindly let as stay later so we had a relaxed departure from the apartment with a last swim in the pool before packing.
Just spent a wonderful week in the beautiful apartment it has everything you need for a wonderful stay a real home from home . The beds are comfortable and the apartment is well furnished . The pool area is lovely and you have the use of your own sunbeds so no fighting to get your towel on one. It is in a great distance from town far enough away but near enough to walk . We loved every minute of out stay fantastic so much so we are booked for next year already same time :-)
This is a great apartment. 2 beds, 2 bathrooms with a lovely lounge and balcony. Has all you could need for your stay. 4 pools to choose from (which are not cold at all!) We even had the pool area all to ourselves for part of our stay. An ice cream van comes along the road once a day around 4ish. There is a kiosk just round the corner for your essentials (a bit dearer than supermarket, but perfect for a few bits!) We were given so much information by the owner and the property managers, it made our stay so much easier. Airport transfers were arranged at our request and were really easy, pretty reasonable and the chap was very friendly. It took any concerns about getting to apartment and back to airport on time away completely. Apartment is only 10-15 mins walk from Harbour (8 euros for taxi home if required) the harbour itself has lots of places to eat and drink (more expensive the nearer you get to the harbour) Pinguino's - on the way to the harbour was our favourite as the locals go there, the food was scrummy and the drinks are a good price!! There are livelier bars just a couple of streets back from the harbour. We went on a evening fireworks boat trip, which was much fun!! There is also a main bus station in the middle of the harbour so that you can get out and about and they also offer trips out. There were a couple of ladies there to answer any questions you have. We found everyone really helpful and would thoroughly recommend the apartment and Kato Paphos as a place to stay.
We don’t want to write a good review as it will encourage other people to use this apartment, and we would perhaps like to return next year! The whole experience from the very outset of booking until leaving the apartment was excellent. On booking, Alan was very fast in answering questions and made the booking process very easy through TripAdvisor. As stated by Alan we received the information about the apartment approx. 10 days before our arrival. The letter he sent out was very informative, giving information about taxis from the airport, directions if driving from the airport, and a whole host of other useful information. At this stage we were so excited about our holiday just because of the amount of useful information we had received; there had obviously been a lot of time and effort spent producing it. We had a hire car from the airport and found the apartment with little difficulty using the written directions (No SATNAV). On arrival we were met by a very pleasant lady (Rhian) who was also very informative not only about the apartment but the surrounding areas and what to do and where to go; from shopping to tourist attractions etc. There was an arrival pack in the fridge with enough basic items for breakfast the next day and more. Brilliant. This apartment is in better condition than many 4* hotels you would stay in. The décor is in great condition, the balcony overlooks one of the pools and the kitchen is not the usual basic you find with very few facilities. There is sufficient crockery for a family of four, with a washing machine, fridge freezer and dining table, even an ironing board and iron. Certainly sufficient crockery, pots and pans should a family of four wish to dine in. This is probably the first holiday we have been on where we have taken nearly all our clothes home clean as we had the use of a very good washing machine. There were spare towels so we washed and them every couple of days. Connection to the internet was very easy and there was a television there though we did not use it. There was an assortment of DVDs available and some family games also. We went out to the beach most days and made use of the cooler box and freezer blocks that were available to us, enabling us to go to remote beaches having adequate cold refreshments with us; and there were chairs and parasol that were available for use if required. We also had access to four loungers by the pool; these were locked and we had the key to unlock so no one else could use them; it was very quiet and peaceful in the pool area we used, but there were another three pools available to us (they also seemed to be very quiet). We would normally dine out for the whole holiday period, including breakfast, but found ourselves taking breakfast in the apartment more often than not. We did have a minor problem with a sink plug that was stuck in place in the bathroom which meant the hand basin could not be used. I contacted the management company and the problem was resolved within a couple of hours. A minor negative point; we were there for 14 days and paid for a change of bed linen and towel freshen up after 7 days with an apartment clean-up which I think should be included in the price. Midway through the holiday the cleaners changed the bedding and towels and cleaned the bathrooms only; perhaps a clean of all the floors would be beneficial too. My wife cleaned the floors in the kitchen, lounge and bedrooms. Taking all this into consideration this was a superb apartment and we would highly recommend this apartment, and are contemplating returning next year.
