“Fab hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

We stayed in this hotel in April for 2 weeks as a couple and the kids stayed for 1 week. 2 teens (17/20) and family of 2 adults, a 2 yr old and a baby. 3 rooms in total.

Check-in
First impressions were good, grand luxurious foyer and pleasant happy staff. Check in was quick and painless.

Rooms
We were in room 106 and the kids in 115 & 116. 115/116 rooms were seaview but to be honest i prefered our room 106 as we had the afternoon sun.
Family room was adequate for their needs, 2 full size single beds, 1 small single bed (a proper built up on) and an excellent travel cot. Still room to move around and the bonus was the huge balcony 115 had! Other rooms fine, a bit dated, but there seems to be some moderinisation going on as we all got brand new flat screen tv's whilst there. The sofas in the foyer was also replaced.

Rooms had a fridge, wardrobe and 6 drawers, but the hangers in the wardrobes were plastic rubbish. Hopefully they'll correct this soon. Bathrooms were ok, need a bit of updating, but do the job. Toiletries provided including soap, shower wash and an amenities kit with sewing kit and earbuds. Shower pressure was fantastic and there was always hot water. Beds a bit on the hard side and was definetely feeling it after 2 wks!

Food
Breakfast consisted of a variety of cereals, lots of bread, fruit, cheeses, hams, hot sausages, bacon, fried/scrambled eggs and freshly cooked waffles. Tea/coffee and orange/grapefruit juice was ok.
Lunch had a variety of hot/cold foods all of which suited everyone. Beer/wines/fizzy juice/water is served to you by waiters.
Dinner - remember that you cant wear swimming shorts to dinner - drinks are by waiter servive and dinner is a large variety of hot/cold selections. One thing we noted was the carvey on one of the evenings was delicious beef/turkey & lamb.

Pool
Poolside has a number of items for everyone to use, table tennis/pool/table football. There is a smaller childrens pool and the larger pool with a small section which includes a jacuzzi. Indoors there is a large heated pool and a small gym but it only has one running machine! There is a sauna, but none of use made use of it.

Poolside bar was open from 10-6 but i think it opens later in the summer months. Delianna who works there (Deliah) is fantastic! Such a friendly girl.

Entertainment
The entertainment staff are fab - Peter (manager), Paul, Esthi and ? (sorry cant rem her name) work tirelessley to keep everyone amused. During the day, from 10.30 am there is pool competitions, aqua aerobics, darts, water polo, beach volleyball, boulles etc. For the kids there are colouring sessions, dance classes, sand castle competitions etc. The evenings consist of a variety of bingo, entertainers, (dont miss Elvis!), karaoke, casino nights etc.

Drinks
We drank a variety of beers, cocktails, spirits and soft drinks and found them all to be of a superior standard to previous all inclusive. One thing to watch for is the strength of the drinks! For my vodka and diet coke i had to order an extra diet coke to dilute the drink!

Out and about
From the end of the pool you can acess the beach (Sandy Cove). Gorgeous cove with crystal turquoise water but just watch were youre walking in as there are rocks in certain areas. From the beach there is paths on the left and right. The right hand path (facing the sea) takes you to Nissi beach (about 10 mins walk) and the left takes you to Ayia Napa municipal beach (about 20 minutes walk) or into the harbour in Ayia Napa (about 30 mins). If you go out of the front of the hotel and take right a 20 min brisk walk will take you into Ayia Napa. At the end of the road there is a grave yard on the right hand side. If you go right it will take you to the harbour, take left and it takes you up to the square which then leads you into the central Ayia Napa area where all the bars/clubs are. The Square Pub (just beside the monastary) has great live guitar music in the evenings.

Buses
A bus runs from the main road to the water park or Parilimi. 101 (opposite side of hotel) takes you to Parilimi and 102 (same side as hotel) takes you to the water park. The Paralimi bus stops off in Protaras (takes bout 20 mins) but the bus driver shouts the stop you are at. Protaras is a gorgeous town and well worth a day trip to. Walk out to Fig Tree bay to see the beautiful beach.

Outside hotel
We went to some of the shows in the bars across the road. The orange grove had the Blues Brothers on one night and they are fantastic. Robbie Williams was ok, as was Meat Loaf but as I said before, it was a quiet time of the year and all of these places will probably be more lively in the summer months.

Room Tip: Sea view in the main block will be morning sun

Have just returned from the Pavlo Napa after one weeks brilliant holiday. The Food was exceptional quality and varied choice, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The Animation team Peter & Paul, along with the kids clubs girls, Estzi & Ilu made the holiday for my 9 year old daughter. The hotel sits right on a beautiful sandy beach which is ideal if you like pool and beach holidays. The hotel also has a lovley indoor pool which is great if the weather is not so good. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a good location, excellent food and freindly and helpful staff.

We visited over Easter 2011. The Pavlo Napa Hotel is just a short walk into Ayia Napa and also has a nice beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a nice view and the staff very obliging. We found the food to be very good considering they were catering for several different nationalities. There was a very good selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we found absolutely nothing to complain about. We did try travelling to and from the hotel by bus on a few occasions but found them to be very unreliable. We also took a stroll along the beach front to the Nissi Beach Hotel on a few occasions and enjoyed a drink and lunch on their terrace which had spectacular gardens and lovely view out to sea. Out of season, this would be a lovely hotel to stay in. Famagusta and Nicosia are well worth a visit and if you can afford a tour guide to show you round, it can be very interesting. Crossing the green line is also well worth doing in Nicosia and the countryside in the north is prettier than the south and less developed. Unfortunately we did not get to the Troudos Mountains, but hear that the villages are really nice if you know where to go. May be next time! We went in April and found the weather to be really pleasant most of the time, just wearing T-shirts, although the sea wind can blow a bit chilly on the odd occasion. It was still warm and sunny most of the time and hot enough to get a good tan if you wanted. It was a lovely holiday.

this hotel was fantastic!!! food great staff great rooms great and pool/beach amazing
would go back every year had such a good time, we were in a group so got told off a few times for noise in the early hours but was expected, we had an issue with the room we were given but they changed it for us the next day! the hotel was a good mixture of familys, groups and couples, the hotel was very sociable and everyone ended up knowing eachother, the night entertainment before heading into napa was a laugh and the outside bar had plenty of room for big groups to sit drink and chat!
the location was perfect just out of napa square so was not to loud but not to far a distance to walk or get taxis and only about 10 min walk to nissy beach which i would recomend to go its party from dawn till dusk with DJs playing all day foam partys on the beach and the beach is amaxing the water is clear blue and beautiful!
i wish i could sah how good my holiday at pavlo napa beach and aiya napa was but i can it was the best and would recomend it to anyone espically couples and groups that like to party and meet wicked people!!!!!

We booked an al inclusive holiday for the two of us plus four teenagers, 15, 16, 18 and 18. On arrival the checking in was smooth and we were given simple directions to the rooms and the hotel facilities. In the rooms, the hotel guide book explained everything else. The rooms themselves were clean, comfortable and adequate for our needs. All had ensuite bath / shower / WC. The rooms were equipped with a fridge and plenty of storage. The rooms are air conditioned but the hotel does not activate this until it gets much warmer, generally May time. We certainly did not miss it.
The restaurant served buffet style food. The selection from breakfast to dinner was varied and catered to every taste. There were regular dishes and new ones to try throughout our stay. The quality of the food was superb and it made holidaying with four teenagers a great deal cheaper! Men are required to wear long trousers to the restaurant in the evening.
The bar area was reasonably small for the size of the hotel but never seemed to fill despite the place being fully booked. Peter and Paul, the entertainment team were excellent and were on the go from morning till late in the night keeping kids and big kids amused.
There is also a scuba diving facility attached to the hotel which runs accompanied dives for novices and experienced divers.
The hotel also has an indoor pool, newly equipped gym, sauna, jaccuzzi and massage facility. You will need trainers if you want to use the gym.
The location of the hotel was perfect for us. Situated right on a sandy beach sheltered from the wind, a mile from the centre of Ayia Napa and a ten minute walk from Nissi Beach. This is where the kids spent most days. The usual water sports were available, jet skiis, pedalos etc.
April is the start of the holiday season and most of the restaurants were only just opening up. If you are thinking of a meal out i would recommend Valentino's, a short walk along Nissi Ave. Their menu was created by the runner up from Masterchef (or similar programme) and the food is amazing. Six of us ate three courses and including drinks it came to 146 Euros! Don't believe all you read about it being really expensive, shop around for anything you need and you won't pay far off what you'd pay at home. Water, beer and spirits are cheap if you are happy to have local brands (you won't tell the difference for your run of the mill common drinks)
Ayia Napa is far enough away not to have an impact on a peaceful nights sleep but it is well worth a visit just to experience it!
In all, a fantasatic hotel, brilliant staff and superbly located.
Would i go back again? Yep, tomorrow!

I have just returned from Pavlo Napa Hotel today and have to say it is a fantastic hotel. I went with my sister and my niece who is five years old and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time. The animation team are amazing and they are really dedicated to looking after the kids who at kids club.

Our rooms were always cleaned daily, with clean towels and linen.

The food was average, but no complaints. The waiting staff were all so lovely and could not do enough for us. Can't wait to book and return at the end of the year.

All staff made our holiday so special.

We miss you Pavlo Napa.
