Stayed here for a week at the end of September on an all inclusive basis. The resort is split into 2 main parts the older one which is the Aegan village and the newer part which is the fishing village. We stayed in the fishing village. Arrival went very well and we were in our room within 10 minutes. The room we had contained a large living room with couch which was also a pull out bed, coffee table, dining table and small kitchen with cooker, fridge and microwave , it also had a tv and air conditioning, the bathroom was large and had a bath with shower, bedroom again was a good size with its own tv and air conditioning unit, the large balcony with a couple of sunbeds and table and chairs was off the bedroom. The room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels provided, the resort is large with 1 very large pool, 2 smaller pools and a kids themed pool area. Restaurant was very large and there was no problems finding a table, food was very good with a decent choice, you also had 3 vouchers fir nearby restaurants, 2 free and the italian you had 20 euro voucher for. There is entertainment of an evening and plenty to keep the kids busy, 4 reps from First Choice based on site. There are a couple of adult only areas, part of the main pool and the bar next to the pool, which opens of an evening, but the primary function of this resort is aimed at families. The resort is located inland so you have to cross over the road and go behind the other hotels to get near the beach (which is not very good) and there is a big splash park about 5 minutes bus trip down the road down. There is a bus stop just across the road from the resort and the buses will get you into Paphos in about 15 minutes an all day ticket costs 5 Euros. Overall the resort is spotless, the staff are excellent and very nice to deal with, the restaurant staff work very hard, to ensure that your table is cleared of dishes as soon as you have finished with them.
Issues - If you are given a room near the main restaurant you will be bothered by the noise until the entertainment stops which varies, the room service has no set time, so one day it will be done by 10am, the next it will be 3pm, this is more inconvenient than anything, the food is very good, but don't expect lots of local dishes, it is quite british in taste, they also struggle to keep some of the food warm, a couple of times the potatoes I selected were almost cold.
Overall would I go back, not as a couple, but if I had Children I would not hesitate as there was so much for them to do.
