Stayed here for 10 nights in November with my partner in one of the studio apartments.
Upon arrival we were greeted by a gentleman who didn't seem overly interested in us and showed us to our appartment with little conversation and no explanation of the facilties whatsoever. Some of the lights were not working in the kitchen and were told as we had arrived on a Sunday it would be Monday before anything could be done. I was rather surprised that they didn't keep bulbs but we could live with this. My partner then decided to check the wi-fi and found that in our apartment we could not actually pick up the signal. When this was mentioned we were moved to another slightly larger apartment and found that you had to be near to reception to get a good signal. Also, as another review has mentioned the cleaner does have a day off which was not actually mentioned when we checked in and was surprised to come back and find the bed had not been changed and on a few occassions towels had not been replaced.
However, despite all this the studio apartment itself was clean, well laid out and perfectly functional. The kitchen had everything we needed, the airconditioning worked well but was only in the bedroom, the shower was powerful and we had our own little outdoor space. The bed was quite hard though and I found it difficult to sleep on as there were a few springs digging into places I wish they weren't! There is a small, shallow pool at the centre of the complex and also a childrens play area to the front.
The location was actually quite lovely and had some lovely views of the sea. The apartments are situated outside of Paphos on the Tomb of the Kings road between several strips of bars and restaurants in either direction and the Pentaras restaurant is directly across the road. It was mostly quiet but one Saturday evening the restaurant was in full swing and music could be heard quite late. How common this is I cannot say but overall we found it pleasureable as we didn't want to be surrounded by the typical bucket and spade tourist fare yet still close enough to indulge should we want to. There is also a bus stop just outside going to Paphos regularly so you needn't always use the car. You are also not far from Coral Bay either and can be there in a short bus/car ride if you are a beach lover.
This is a great little complex in a lovely location and with a little more attention to detail and service this place would be exceptional. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the food as we either cooked or ate out but it seemed they catered for most tastes. Their rates are also extremely reasonable and I would definitely say this is accomodation worth considering as long as you keep your expectations reasonable and not on par with a 5* experience.
