    I had trouble booking online from the UK and had to contact them for assistance via FB messenger, they were super helpful.

    We visited on the first hot day of the season, it was fairly quiet and we did not have to queue for any attraction. The lazy river was definitely my favourite - so relaxing. My son's favourite was the cannon drop! Plenty of different types of slides/activities for all of the family from thrill seekers to some more gentle options.

    The staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. I loved the wristband payment as that meant I could just lock everything away in the locker for the day without having to keep going back to get my pursed, we just settled the bill when leaving.

    Overall highly recommended.

    Worth the visit. You can catch the 611 to the bus station then it’s a quick walk into the grounds. Around 2.50 euro to enter and lots to see. You can exit onto the coastal path or back out the front. Lots of bars and eating places outside. Programmes with maps on sale and I would recommend picking one up.

    Lovely views, interesting church, museum and hermit's cave. Well worth the trip into the hills. Entry fee to Museum and hermit's cave is negligible.

    We loved this zoo and experiences so much we went twice!

    Such a lovely relaxed zoo where everyone seems to genuinely love their job and the animals, the passion and knowledge is next to none.

    We started each visit with the Lemur experience, this was €5 each. You pay in cash and it starts from 10am. What a brilliant experience and amazing animals!

    Next was Elephant experience which was €50 for 5 people, such a gentle looked after lady! She is very well cared for and spoilt.

    All animals here came across very happy and relaxed and you could really get close to them!

    We had a hire car so arrived before all the tourist coaches.

    Lovely restaurant by exit or snack bar near elephant with small playground.

    The only thing that would make this place perfect would be a small splash park to really extend your day.

    Follow a dirt track off-road to a carpark, followed by a really interesting and beautiful walk. In May there was water in the Gorge and parts are slippy.. also looks quite rock-slide prone so do be careful.

    What amazing mosaics and still in fantastic condition.
    Just to see the mosaics in all their glory are well worth the entrance fee.
    This is the 3rd time seeing this wonderful site.
    If this is your thing then make a beeline and see history.

    Very nice clean shopping mall with a few shops and places to eat. My favourite retail outlet 'ZARA' was so excited to go and shop. Staff were all friendly, also love Pull & Bear. There is a Costa and Starbucks. Kids shops, sports shops, supermarket and clothes shops a nice small range of shops under one roof. Decor is beautiful too, car park at the basement of the shopping mall. Also has free wifi! Use the taxis at the end by Starbucks and try to book a return fair as it is much cheaper.

    We visited a few years ago with our brother & sister in law.

    We just turned up butc we were made to feel very welcome & we're given a tour of the winery before settling down to the serious business of some wine tasting.

    A really great chance to sample some great Cypriot wines.

    Nice enough harbour castle.
    Not a great deal inside but once at the top of the ramparts the view of the harbour and paphos are nice.
    Not much to gain entrance.
