I'm very fussy so when booking my holiday if only for a week stay I researched a lot of the hotels & apartments on the Island this took just short of 2wks, cleanliness is very important to me as too is the location as I can not abide the British lager louts, after narrowing it down to just 2 hotels this one stuck out more there was something there, so my partner & I booked the flights then the hotel, a few days before the flight Angie this is the receptionist at the Pagona emailed myself requesting our departure flight information, then asked if we would like a taxi booking from the airport this was great as this we was just planning, as this was our first holiday in 4yrs due to an accident on my last holiday, I no longer wanted to go away again, however my partner convinced me to change my mind.
We have just returned today after a long trip as our transfer to the UK airport was via national express coach which took 2hr 45 min going to Manchester & 3hr 45 min returning back from Manchester to home when you add the flight time on top it adds to a very long day so the taxi transfer in Cyprus as you can see was a lovely finishing touch.
Pagona Hotel Apartments were very clean the rooms were cleaned daily this included bedding & towels, as the hotel is self catering each room has a fridge as well as a mini electric oven with stove/hob enough for 2 pans, all crockery including cutlery, not forgetting a kettle & pans are all stored in the cupboards, all you will need for preparing and eating a meal should you wish too, the hotel is quietly situated there is no entertainment, food is available from the bar throughout the day, quality meals not burger & chips or pizza, this may not appeal to a lot of people unless you want a quiet relaxing peaceful holiday with good quality food, the prices were inline with most cafes & restaurants in the area, should you want to dine out then all the restaurants are within a short walking distance, Agapinor was very nice however you need to book which the hotel will do for you, this is not the only restaurant there are many others, even on the harbour from one to the other they all offer pretty much the same food just that the price may very slightly not one restaurant is better than the other I found, so the best thing to do is try for yourself, be warned that all offer homemade cakes and fresh whipped cream, my advice is to take this with a pinch of salt, as homemade they are not and I don't class synthetic cream as fresh either, not even Tea for Two which is a little café on the harbour there scones are not freshly made onsite as they warm up the scone & once cooled is quite hard like toast that has gone cold, this is just advice, for a treat there is a frozen yoghurt shop on the harbour well there are 2 the real frozen yoghurt café (in blue), is nice but must warn you that you can put as much yoghurt as you wish including topping but then it gets weighed there is the sting right there, further down the harbour next to a fast kebab café is another Frozen yoghurt café this is very nice you know the price before you choose the ice cream is good too, we went there everyday to have a large yoghurt as well as a small ice cream, enough about food back to the hotel, The hotel is a family run business, there are staff that are not family however they are all friendly, you can get a sun lounger any time of the day so no sneaking down at the crack of dawn, even a Jacuzzi which comes on for half hour every 2hrs from 11am the last been at 5pm, when you are due to fly home you need to leave your apartment by 12 noon, unless you request at the reception if you speak to Angie you can rent for longer it will cost just €5 p/h, as you come out from the hotel turn left & just along that road you will come across a supermarket this is the cheapest you can get all you need from there well known brands that we all know in the UK from shampoo, toothpaste, soap washing-up liquid anything, just don't buy sun lotion from there, as that is expensive, as you exit the hotel & turn right keep walking until you reach the crossing at the school, crossover then turn left as you walk down you will pass many bars, cafes even restaurants, there are more down by the harbour, just stay clear of BAYWATCH cocktail café we got charged €5.50 for 1pt lager & small bottle of water, I myself am planning another holiday to this hotel as my stay was very enjoyable just wished I had booked for 2wk as 1wk was not enough & Angie was superb, for anybody complaining about no TV my answer is get a life, as for cooking well I don't go on holiday to cook I go to relax & rest, in peace with NO screaming kids, lager louts & poor entertainment, if quiet is not your scene & all you want is burger, pizza and chips then don't go its not for you, however if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday with quality food and a chance to meet similar couples of a mature age even young then this is for you. This hotel made my holiday the best ever the experience was like nothing I've had before & the family including are the people I thank as they are what made it the most enjoyable.
