Great clean apartment, with air-con in bedroom and lounge area. Kitchen is well stocked with lots of utensils and even has an oven. Make sure you take some washing up liquid and cloths to wash-up with, and you'll need to ring reception to request a tea-towel, as they don't provide one unless requested. They have two supermarkets on-site, but essentials for cooking seem to be more expensive than other supermarkets, although drinks, crisps, ice-creams seem reasonably priced. There's a large supermarket in Paphos, which is better to buy from for main essentials for cooking etc, which is located across from Debenhams. There are loads of sunbeds around the large pool area, and guests start putting their towels out at 8am. This was more noticable around the shallow end of the pool, where you watch your child play within easy sight. Lots in inflatables left by other holidaymakers around the pool, so if you go later in the year, don't bother buying any, as they'll be loads out there.
We ate at Fiesta bar, in which I had a Jack Daniels burger which was ok, but the burger was of a quality that you'd associate with a lay-by cafe, I feel it was little over priced for the quality of the food, plus the childrens fish fingers didn't look appetising at all, which is no wonder our little girl, didn't eat them. Little Eaterly pizza's were lovely, and as others have commented, the medium is more of a UK large size. Ocean basket, was always busy but we never ate there.
Head into Paphos and you can get some better quality meals, at a lower price, with some offering a good set menu. Nice to walk back along from the harbour, which has a wide pram friendly pathway and well lite and takes you all the way past Athena Beach Hotel and beyond.
You can get on the 611 bus into Paphos, outside Cavallini's restaurant on the main road, and only costs one Euro each way. You can also head to another bus stop, if you head out of reception (or down the pathway at the side of the taverna) and on the opposite side of the road you see a pathway with 4 ball topped street lights, which looks like it heads nowhere as it vanishes behind a line of tree's. Take this pathway and it'll lead around the back of Avanti Hotel and onto the main road where the bus stop is just next to. There's also another supermarket (not as good as the main one in paphos but better stocked than others), banks and some great restaurants to chose from, if you don't fancy venturing into the harbour area.
As for the entertainment, hats off to Chris & Zoe, who provide the best entertainment they can, all day and all night, for zero budget (Avanti management need to give them more pennies, to give the entertainment sector a boost)
All in all a great family holiday.
