I like many others seem to have been reading other reviews, was dubious about this holiday. We wanted a week somewhere with kids club facilities and all inclusive. Being new to all inc and a resort catering for children we expected it to be a busier resort to what we would normally book. I have to say we had a fab week!
When we arrived we were given the worst room we could have possibly been given! 5A which was located right next to the entertainment stage, needless to say the 1st night was horrendous with noise. It was a bit of a butlins feel to it and we were thinking we were in for a nightmare week...... The next day I requested a move and we were told by reception we would have to endure 1 more night in 5a but then we could move to a quieter room.
From the moment we moved it was like a different holiday, 12E was great set back out of the way and we needed up with a balcony and sea view which was fab!
Good points about the Pafian Sun
Firstly the food, I really don't know what some people are writing about on here re the food being rubbish because it was brilliant, great theme nights, kids buffet and all the meat served was so tender, no upset tummys, eveything was well presented and The staff were very nice , worked long days along with the bar staff and i couldn't fault them, it is a bit like a school dinner hall but its all inclusive, what do people expect?.Yes this was out 1st time all inclusive but I was surprisingly pleased at the quality. the wine was also very nice, even though it was out of plastic cups! Why people moaned about it was beyond me? The breakfast had something for everyone, fruit, cereal, hot full breakfast, fresh made as you waited omelette, pancakes for the kids, the list is endless. We all ate far too much but it was all so nice!
Secondly the kids club, there was a lack of interest , a lot of kids chose not to go but my daughter loved it and made a great friend there. The kids reps were lovely and in really can't fault them. The day and evening entertainment was also ok, we tended to go out after our meal to the harbour or coral bay so we only sat and watched it on 2 nights but it is what it is. If you want to stay in the hotel and drink yourself silly because its all inclusive instead of going out and taking in some of paphos sites then why moan about it being rubbish?the Bus service was very good every 15 mins to harbour which was nice for a walk, shopping, drinks etc.
Another worthy mention is the maid service, can't fault it, the maid was friendly and I found the maid service very good.
Sunbeds , there were plenty as it was last week of sept seemed quieter, top pool was louder and the lower pool was much quieter with just a pool bar.
I would recommend the superior rooms near the lower pool if you can get one, they have premium view and quieter that end. Clusters 26/27/28 we would definitely recommend.
In short YES we would return, had a fab week ( once we escaped the dreaded room 5a) staff were great :)
Don't be put off by over critical reviews, you can't please everyone!
