“Home away from home”
Reviewed 3 September 2011

We were celebrating a special occasion and I wanted to make sure everything will go as planned. So, before we arrived, I've bombarded Helen & Alvin with the emails, asking numerous questions and making requests. Every email was answered to the fullest extent and every request was fulfilled. I was amazed and truly appreciated the level of service even BEFORE we arrived!!! The apartment was exactly as pictured, very cozy, clean and fully staffed with everything you need, including dishes and cleaning supplies. It really felt like home. Beautiful pool two steps from the back door really added to the ambiance. Public beach is within 10 minutes walk. Also, there are plenty of the restaurants and pubs in the area. Helen & Alvin proved to be as good hosts as you could think of, who really did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable and stress-free!. I can write 3 more paragraphs on how helpful they were in anything we needed, from arranging the appointment at the hair salon, to driving me to the pharmacy when I needed. We cannot wait to go back. And when we do, we know where we'll stay.

The Athenaeum Holiday Apartments are perfectly situated in Kato Paphos, they are beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean. We were welcomed by the owner on our arrival and felt instantly at home – for the first week. However, at the beginning of the second week our holiday took a dramatic change for the worse. The apartments are advertised as “No Children Under 18” and yet on day 6 of our holiday I opened our curtains to be faced with a child aged about 7 years old jumping in and out of the pool right outside our apartment. Apparently, the apartment next door but one to the one we were renting was privately owned and their children used the pool. This completely spoiled our holiday; it was not possible to sit outside on our terrace with a glass of wine next to the lit pool in the evening as there were small children running wild.
In addition to that, the apartments that are adjacent to Athenaeum are home to several Russian people who live and work in Paphos. We were woken during one night at 3:30 am by these people who were shouting and whistling to one another until 6:30 am when they finally slammed their communal door and went to bed. Just as we were managing to finally get to sleep we were woken by the man who came to clean the pool at 6:50am.
Another night we were woken again by, in excess of 15 drunken teenagers who were in our pool fully clothed, drinking beer and shouting loudly until around 5 am.
There was also a group of Russian men who sat up during the night outside the supermarket next door playing cards/backgammon and drinking beer that had apparently been illegally supplied to them. The police did nothing about all these disturbances and seemed to ‘turn a blind eye’.
All in all, Kato Paphos is absolutely beautiful: lots of good restaurants and bars ( The Rugby Arms and The Alexander – which does a fantastic pub quiz on a Monday evening). It’s such a shame that The Athenaeum Holiday Apartments are situated where they are because they are absolutely beautiful but the area is awful – give it a miss.
