Just come back from a fantastic break to Cyprus and the Paphiessa Hotel. This was our 6th visit to Cyprus and we have always stayed at the Paphiessa, the welcome you receive is second to none and the staff are extremely friendly especially Mikhaela and Jamie and also the owner Nikos. This is the most friendly hotel I have ever... More

I stayed at the Paphiessa in early April 2014 and had a really good time. The hotel has been much maligned in some reviews but I found it very nice. It is a three star hotel - so you get what that entails. However, there is a nice heated swimming pool which is more than what you would expect in... More

The trip was end of May/ beginning of June. We tried this one as the Basilica is getting bad reviews and it was excellent. We had booked it because my wife is disabled and lifts went to all floors. When we came to book in the guy on reception changed our room to ground floor by the pool. Marvellous. We... More

We have just returned after our 9 day stay - and in all honesty have never received such a friendly welcome. The owner - Nicos is a credit to his trade - working all hours and always a genuine smile and every effort to make your stay happy. Michaela & Jamie were wonderful and it was a pleasure to see...

This was my first visit to the Paphiessa, having been recommended by a friend. I had been told to expect a friendly greeting but what happened was brilliant. As we were checking in the owner, Nikos was walking past and he stopped to say hello and welcome us. As we both had quite bulky suitcases (as us ladies do) Nikos... More

I returned to stay at the Paphiessa for six weeks over Christmas and New Year having stayed there earlier in the year. (late submitting this review because of other holidays). On arrival I was greeted by Nicos, Mikela and Jamie like a long lost friend. It truly is a family run hotel where nothing is too much trouble for any... More

My husband and I stayed at the Paphiessa last week. On arrival we were disappointed at the standard of the accommodation in our one bedroom apartment which was long overdue a refurbishment. The kitchen area had a few cheap formica units which looked to date from the late 70s. The TV in the lounge area was an ancient, tiny portable... More
