The Paphian Bay is an above average 3 star hotel and with some adjustments could easily become a 4 star hotel. The food is very good if you are on half board. Wide variety of salads and main courses and excellent desserts with great range. It is themed every night but only a few dishes represent the theme. You are taken to your table by hostesses which is a good thing as there is no mad scamble for tables. You can sign for all your drinks and pay at the end. The hotel managers are always hovering which keeps the staff very attentive and they clear used plates within seconds. The food though for a mediterranean country is quite bland. Although the meats are beautifully cooked and tender, the sauces are usually unappetising. But that is cypriot food for you. very bland indeed.
The family room was spacious and clean. Dont believe any stories of mice and cockroaches. It is very clean and cleaned everyday. The sheets are also changed everyday and you get 2 sets of beach towels + tea and coffe in your room. That is fantastic. The AC is adequate and well controlled with low settings for the night.
The pools are good, not deep at all with 1.35 metres being the deepest. Indoor pool also nice and deepest at 1.35 metres. Gym with about 3-4 equipment and with AC. unch at the pool bar is usually yesterdays main courses...reheated. Dont fall for the fish and chips it is reheated fish from last night. But same cost as nearby eatieries.
We did the underwater walk trip which was fabulous. Not to be missed. Troodos mountain trip is tiresome for kids as is the monastery trips.
Otherwise Cyprus after joining the EU is very very expensive. the strips are generic, with brand name shops. Greek tavernas are over rated with all food usually fried and bland. Even fish is just coated in batter and fried whole. No spices, no development. Cypriot locals are not a smiley lot and even their own tourist board is requesting the locals to appear more welcoming.
All in all the management of the hotel is approachable and very very visible and friendly. Clean hotel with good spread of food. Cyprus as a destination has only endless sunshine going for it. Not much besides.
