Cyprus - Paphos opinions


We've just returned from Paphos after being married there. Our opinions are:

Resort - Average - not really much at the harbour. the towns quite dead but the tourist areas ok.

Prices - Most meals and drinks were at least UK prices

Food - Nearly everything was with chips and there was more English than Cypriot food. Similar to Rhodes. I thought the food was much much more better in Turkey last year. Our wedding buffet on the Natasha and then the Poseidon Taverna were great though. Avoid the Pelcian restaurant - overpriced and the worst Fish meze we've ever had.

Hotel - Athena Beach - great, good pools and food, no problems

Wedding - We had assistance from "The Bridal Consultant" and "Cyprus Dream Weddings" - both were excellent and can be recommended. We were married at St Georges Chapel in Paphos and the priest, the service, the building and surroundings were all very special.

Care hire - Note if you try to hire a car there, it has to be for at least three days.

Tourist attractions - Most places you visit don't have much information on what you're looking at so guidebooks are handy. If you go to the Trudos mountains I woudl recommend a 4x4 as many of the roads are wet dirt tracks and very uneven over long distance.

I hope this helps anyone else!

I am looking at booking my wedding through Cyprus Dream Weddings - have contacted them by email and am patiently waiting for a quote... Did you have to wait long for them to get back to you? Did you call them or do it all by email?

Thx for your help!

Hi Rich. Bit puzzled about the car hire bit. We booked one from AVIS via our rep for two days. Having said that wouldn't rcommend them as they ripped us off for petrol. Had to pay for a full tank up front with no refunds no matter how much we used. Said it was policy throughout the island. Found out later it isn't. Many firms supply a full tank and you simply return it full thus paying only for what you use.
