Accomodation: we booked a 2 bedroomed deluxe apartment for our family comprising 3 children ages 14, 12 & 2. We had booked for the Fishing Village but ended up in the Aegean Village. Apart from feeling like the poor relations, as the fishing village is lovely, our apartment was actually very spacious, clean and modern, and we were very pleased with it. Probably the best accomodation we've ever had.
Food: the buffet is fine. Plenty of choice but not fabulous food. Some weird things like pink saffron rice (thought saffron was yellow) and sprouts at breakfast but there's something for everyone and we did eat well. The snack bar has a good choice if you dont want to go the buffet again in the middle of the day. Not just burgers and chips but also salads, pastas etc. The mexican restaurant was terrible. They obviously dont know how to cook mexican cuisine and played indian music. When asked what kind of fish reply was "dont know, some kind of seafood!" We never went back but then we didnt go to Cyprus for mexican food. We went to the Greek restauarant 3 times. Food is good but service is a bit sloppy.
In2Action: These guys work really hard and are great with the kids and the adults. There is a range of activity throughout the day and its upto you to join in if you want to. Kids loved it. The evening entertainment grows on you. its not fab like on cruise ships but it is amusing and the entertainment team deserve 10/10 for effort.
Service: pause for breath and they'll snatch your plates away in the restaurant and the staff there dont really interact, but nothing really to complain about.
Location: 20 minutes easy walking to Paphos harbour area. Bus stop opposite hotel runs frequently and also goes to Coral Bay, the only decent beach in the area. Bus also goes to Tombs of the Kings, worth a visit and kids enjoyed.
Hotel: There are 4 pools. 2 in Aegean village are quiet if you want space, but the main pool is fab and very big. The children's splash pool is great with pirate ship, slides etc. great for children of all ages. playground is also very good. The Fishing Village area is beautifully designed and the seating area around the lighthouse is lovely. Never felt crowded and could always find a sunbed. Everything still looks new, clean and smart.
The Aegean Village area has more gardens and is quieter and is very nice aswell but pales against the new area and the 2 areas look like 2 different complexes and dont blend together well. (But that is just a comment and makes no difference to the enjoyment of the holiday)
We had a great holiday. Would recommend to other families with young and older kids. We never go anywhere twice but would definstely recommend and we would definately try another holiday village..........
