Ok, so maybe I am used to 4 * but jeeze! Partner & I have just returned from here ( thank the lord) after a weeks stay! We know Paphos quite well & went in May 11 & stayed in Paphos Gardens ( Highly recommended) however i have to say staying here ruined it!
Where shall i begin... First of all bear in mind they were well aware we were arriving.... we arrived around 23.00 hours to the apartments, which were all in darkness, not a soul to be seen! We waited for around 10 minutes, until out of sheer luck a guest ( who should i stay someone who lived there) came out, we asked what we should do & she said to call the number on the door & " they normally come" so what did we do.. called the number, and around 5 minutes later someone came to let us in! Not at all customer service! So the room ( first i shall say) we shared the bed ( yes the actual bed) with ants... not just one but 5, they were everywhere, and we weren’t even cooking in there, and you wouldn’t want too due to the state of the kitchen! It was 40 degrees plus and the aircon you had to pay for! The TV didn’t work, and there were hardly any towels! So my other half decides to speak to the manager about the TV he sends his son to check it out, whilst looking at the TV i am sat on the bed with a towel round me, he spends all of his time looking in the mirror perving at me, never mind fixing the TV. He then has the audacity to turn around to my partner and say " I would appreciate it if your partner put some clothes on" HELLO..... it clearly distracted you matey boy! So the father comes up... we mention the ants, he says " oh we have ants in Cyprus" .... in the bed really! Then basically accuses us of stealing the remote control! Reluctantly he moves us into a room next door, which to be honest is not much better and a few days later we find more ants. The room was very dirty and the lamps did not work! As for the shower, you may as well have poured a bottle of water over you, just awful! The shower was not a shower... it was a hole in he ground with a curtain round... something i would expect not even a prison has! This resulted in water going everywhere! There was no shaving point. There was also one bin in the bathroom for the entire apartment! The air con, which we had to pay 30 euros for due to the temperature was like something out of the dark ages and wasn’t the best!
The hotel block ( i hate even calling it a hotel ) wasn’t much better, on one of the mornings the cleaners had obviously mopped the stairs leaving a lot of water everywhere, no caution signs and my partner slipped over, i said they should have had signs and the reply i got from the owner was " Oh well" Both the owner and son were extremely rude throughout the stay! The pool... dirty, small & warm! Oh not forgetting probably the size of my living room! Only about 6 sun beds, 2 of which were in the sun! It is about a 25 minute walk to the nearest beach and 10 into the town! Oh and the sun terrace.... need i say anymore see the pictures!
I would not recommend anyone to stay here unless you are planning on being drunk during the whole of your stay. It really put a dampener on the whole holiday and i dreaded going back each day. I couldn’t wait to get home to some luxury!
