“Would highly recommend for cheap, no-fuss holiday!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We booked half-board at an amazing price, and so I was a bit nervous about what we would find when we arrived. I am so happy that we were not swayed by the poor reviews - we wanted a peaceful holiday, a relaxed hotel and to be in close proximity to beaches and places to explore, and this hotel was ideal.

Rooms: everyone that I spoke to had been pleasantly surprised with their rooms. We were in Flat 134; it is on the ground floor, has a pool-side view, a well-equipped kitchen and it's own low-walled patio. The rooms were clean and spacious and I have absolutely no complaints about them.

Hotel facilities: WiFi is dodgy but all guests are welcome to use the lobby (large room, lots of armchairs and tables, open 24 hours) for a stronger connection. There is a small bar (quiet when we travelled, a large beer is 3.80 euro) and an on-site shop (beer is 1.20 euro), and VERY helpful and informative reception staff. Don't expect to travel off-season and find a buzzing atmosphere and nightly in-house entertainment; you won't find it. There is a small children's pool and a small park, but you'll have to refer to other reviews for information about whether this was a good location for travelling as a family.

Location: a very short walk to the beach (a path leads directly from the pool/patio), close to bars and restaurants and small supermarkets, and close to the harbour. Hotels on either side were charging a premium price, not least of all due to the location. The water-park is a short bus ride in one direction, and the archeological sites and markets are a short bus ride in the other direction. The bus station in Pafos harbour doubles-up as a very useful tourist-information centre. We travelled to Coral Bay on one day, but found that much of it was closed (out of season). The harbour is lined with modern bars and restaurants and, if you venture a little further inland, you will find more traditional places to eat. We tried to go to The Windmill (it has very good tripadvisor reviews), but went mid-week in February and found that it was closed. However, there were plenty of other places to choose from in the area.

Breakfast: buffet-style, eggs/bacon/sausage/beans, pancakes, abundance of bread for toasting (in possibly the slowest toasters in the world), jams and choc spread, cereals, yoghurt/honey/canned fruit. The staff were happy to keep topping-up the food until the very last person had eaten all that they wanted. The coffee was good and strong!

Evening meal: I really do wonder about people who pay rock-bottom prices and then complain that the food was nothing to write home about! We had a choice of two or three simple dishes, or the food was served-buffet-style when the hotel was a bit busier. It was tasty and filling... and did I mention that the whole thing had been incredibly cheap?! The evening menu is printed out and left around the bar during the day-time; check it, and eat elsewhere if you are not inspired. I think that half-board is almost the same price as B&B, and so it might be a good approach to expect to eat out on a few occasions and consider every meal at the hotel to be a bonus.

Budget tips: DO NOT pay for a transfer/taxi from Pafos airport unless you are arriving on the last flight of the day (the airport closes and you'll be waiting in the dark); the 612 bus collects from the airport (travelling to Pafos harbour) and will take you almost directly to the hotel; the times are 10:35, 11:45, 12:55, 14:05, 15:15, 16:25, 17:35, 18:45, 19:55 and 21:05. ALL bus fares within the region are 1.50 euro, or you can buy a day pass and make unlimited trips for 5 euro. The info desk at the airport issues very useful free maps.

I looked at the comments book in the lobby - it was incredibly positive! It is a real shame that a lot of people only feel motivated to make a review when they have something negative to say.

One couple had been 'upgraded' to Panareti Coral Bay Resort, and they got themselves back to Panareti Paphos the very next night. THIS is the hotel that you want for a good location.

Room Tip: Ground floor pool view seemed to be the best option.

We booked a week all inclusive not expecting much as not expensive. Didn't get much. No fruit at breakfast, nothing healthy, all food fried. Dinner, oh dear. Soup was same colour whatever flavour, Choice of greek salad (few bit of lettuce, cucumber and tomato, no olives or feta just a tiny bit of grated cheese) or tuna salad (same basic salad with a dolop of tinned tuna). Main course, mostly pork or chicken, fried and dry served every night with chips, fried rice and 3slices of carrot and about a dozen peas, most of which was usually cold. Dessert choice of Ice cream, never had any as machine had broken or cake. second day should have had cheesecake but had none so cake again. No tea or coffee. Need I say more !!! Studio was clean but tired looking. Bar was unheated and we had to sit wearing a coat. I know it was winter season but if they're going to open they need to cater for the weather. Bar man tried hard and was very pleasant but seemed embarrassed by the situation.

When we booked the Panaretti for 10 days in mid February, we did wonder what we were going to get. It was very cheap (around €20 per night) so we were not expecting the Savoy or the Ritz.
We were a bit concerned after reading some Tripadvisor reviews but overall, we were pleasantly surprised by what we were given.
We got a one bedroom apartment that was roomy but could do with a lick of paint. Our room was clean, everything in the kitchenette worked fine and a bathroom that was adequate. We had a balcony facing the sea which was an added bonus. We also had tv (though just one English channel) as well as a cd/radio stack in the room as well as air conditioning.
Wifi was also available but just in the reception area.
The room was cleaned daily and towels and bedding changed every 4 days although we actually got 3 changes during our 10 day stay.
The pool and sun loungers were clean and well used by residents and we had no complaints on that front.
We were also given a voucher for a 1/2 price evening meal in the restaurant. The food was ok but not the best we had on our holidays. We didn't use the bar as they only had the same channels as in the rooms so if you wanted to watch football, you had to go to an outside bar.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby but they are not all open out of season.
The staff on reception were very pleasant and are to be commended for their very friendly and helpful manner.
Overall, the place needs a revamp as it is looking very tired and things like the towels could do with replacing but we were very happy with our deal. The location is a very nice 20 minute walk from Paphos Harbour along the beach or you can take a €1.5 bus trip into town.
If you are after a cheap place to stay, then the Panaretti is fine but if you want luxury, I suggest you go somewhere else.
One thing that potential visitors to Paphos should be aware of if they are staying in and around Paphos town centre. Taxi drivers at the airport will try to rip you off by charging between €30 and €50 for a 20 minute trip into Paphos. If you don't mind slumming it, there is an hourly bus service into Paphos which charges €1.5 per person

My wife and I have recently returned from a week at PA PAFO, having booked a self-catering package at a fortnight's notice.

No doubt, many years ago when it first opened it deserved it's four star grading from the Cyprus Tourist Organisation and was a very nice place to stay. Now it isn't. Today it's a tired, run-down complex in acute need of many thousands of euros being spent on replacement fixtures, furniture, repairs and serious Spring cleaning. Bob the Builder, Clara the Cleaner and Steptodoulou and Son are all well overdue for a call. One and a half stars would be generous. As a saving grace, all of the staff we came into contact with were friendly and helpful.

Our accommodation? Bearing in mind we only paid £23 a night for our apartment I think the "you get what you pay for" adige applies to a certain degree - in our case we were provided with clean bed linen (changed once during our 7 day stay), plenty of hot water, a working WC, everything in the kitchenette was usable or worked OK and the telly did have one English language channel (BBC World News) amongst the four you could view. On the downside, the heavy duty curtains in the bedroom and the bathroom floor were minging.

So if you're expectations don't run past the basics, and you're prepared to overlook ingrained dirt of many years and furniture that should have gone in the skip years ago, and of course if you get a similar price, this place might be for you - just don't expect the four star grade of accommodation and facilities that are still purported to be available here. If you're planning to go in high season, and are quoted the EURO 102.00 per night rack rate, you should definitely look elsewhere.

PS - If you're wondering why I referred to the resort as PA PAFO, check out the photo of the main illuminated signage, and also the one of the four star table tennis facilities located adjacent to the poolside - says it all really?

Room Tip: Pot luck really - if you only require an apartment for two persons, you could end up with 246, which...

Much of what you read in these reviews is true. We arrived mid-January.
The hotel...Check-in was easy and friendly. We asked for a double and a twin bedded room overlooking the pool and/or the sea and this is exactly what we got. Not too difficult since we were almost the only guests there.

The room...As described in other reviews...old, tired, worn out, threadbare towels. No duvets. We had some broken tiles on floor. At one point during the week we had ants on floor. However maid service was daily but towels and bedding changed only every four days. Useful appliances provided included iron and ironing board, kettle, toaster, microwave, tv, fridge and hairdryer. Cooker consists of two hob rings (no oven).

Food...We had breakfast only and it was OK. Due to guests being few we had breakfast cooked to order. Other than the full English there were some bowls of yogurt, plates of meat and cheese, jars of jam and a cake. However what wasn't eaten on the day was simply laid out again the next. There was no fresh fruit. To drink there was the usual tea. coffee and fruit juices but the coffee and water was often only luke warm and no microwave to heat anything up. The reason for this seems to be down to the staff. Some are more efficient than others. One day we arrived for breakfast at 8am (it starts at 7.30) to find no hot coffee or hot water. The fresh juice machine was still off. The bread basket was empty and when staff finally arrived we asked for bread and we were given a loaf of brown. We asked for white and were told no... but then the chef overheard us and produced a sliced white loaf.

There are about a dozen cats roaming around the hotel and not only do they get into the restaurant, some staff members actually encourage them in by offering them food. We are ok with cats but they are not for everyone.

We did not suffer from noise problems of an sort although the hotel is situated on a main tourist route into paphos town. As others have mentioned the curtains are thin and do let in the light although our had linings on a separate track.

Overall the experience was tolerable for the week that we were there since a holiday is about more than just the hotel and you can't expect much for b&b at £10 per night. This said I would have preferred to pay a bit more for a better place.
