We have just returned from a week at this hotel . We had booked into a Studio but on arrival were given a one-Bed apartment overlooking the pool. Infact it was the apartment referred to by Riveriera Whitby - all I can say is thier loss was our gain. Nothing that was said in that review was true other than the one Cobweb, complete with Mosquito catching Spider, who we were quite fond of by the end of our stay. It was clean , spacious and well furnished.
The pool was very clean and very refreshing!!
All of the staff were helpful and the bar area was like being at your local pub. We did not eat at the Hotel in the evenings , however we did have lunch and it was tasty and good value for money.
Yes the Hotel is next to a Main Road but it is not noisy at night and nothing an i-Pod can't sort out by day. The plus side about its position was its proximity to lots of bars and resturants. Some which we loved - The First and Last ( 5min walk away ) a good british pub serving food and drink at excellent prices. The Pengino Bar ( near Gourmet Taverna on the Sea-Front ) lovely atmosphere and reasonable prices, Sunset Bay Hotel and Bar ( on the way to Coral Bay ) a fantastic place to sip a drink and watch the Sun go down over the Med. and on the way back from Sunset Bay on the opposite side of the road a tiny Fish Taverna called Kasparis. It seemed to be family run, very basic in decor but served lovely fish dishes with great pride.
It was cheap to eat and drink out in Paphos and hiring a car is cheap too, great way to explore the surrounding areas. Our memories of Cyprus wll be driving through places smelling of Oranges and eucalyptus, the kindness and hospitality of the Cypriot people and of the good fun we had at the Paphiessa.
If you want 5* luxury Paphos has many Hotels that can offer it but you will need to dig deep in your pockets. The Paphiessa is not 5* and does not profess to be so but it offers
excellent value for money and a friendly atmosphere that is very often hard to find .
So a massive thankyou to Nickos the Manager, Jamie the Barman/entertainment and Mickela who seemed to do everything !! We had a lovely time and hope to return very soon
