Only had a week at the Avanti but wished it was longer. Good position about 20 min walk along coastal path in to Paphos or 5 mins on the bus 1 euro each journey or 3 euros for a day ticket – if you get the bus opposite the front entrance make sure you observe the destination board as buses in both directions stop here, better to exit the hotel by the pool onto Posidonos Avenue and cross the road when going into Paphos. Plenty of bars, restaurants and a couple of supermarkets in the vicinity.
We stayed in room 435 overlooking the pool. There was plenty of hanging and drawer space, a fridge and a television. There is a safe in the room but the hotel charge for the key. The bathroom is not over-big but the shower was hot and powerful and there is also a hand held shower.
Only enough supplies for a ‘welcome’ drink so take your own – the breakfast room has tea bags and sugar. This for me was a big negative as a 4* hotel should supply tea/coffee etc as standard.
Another negative with the whole hotel is there are no balcony lights. We were there at the end of October when it was dark about 5pm, we like to sit on the balcony with a drink before we go for dinner and had to rely on the room light.
Breakfast was served on the terrace. Usual selection, fruit; cereals; bacon and eggs etc; pancakes; toast; and pastries. All self-service. Compact service stations could cause quite a large queue at busy sides. Downside: tables not cleared quickly enough possibly 80-100 tables both inside and out and only 2 or 3 people clearing and re-setting tables – we set our own table a couple of times as did others.
Dinner served in the restaurant. Different theme each evening (7 days – 7 themes) plenty of choice and well cooked, again self-service. Each evening there was a chef on duty carving joints of meat. There was also a section for children, this just seemed to have chicken nuggets, potato faces and chips. Plenty of service staff on duty removing dirty plates as soon as used, and also re-setting tables immediately. We gave the restaurant and food 10/10.
Very spacious outside area. Large pool. Plenty of sunbeds not many parasols but plenty of trees providing shade both around the pool and on the large grassed areas. There is a swim up bar which also serves food at lunchtimes. There is an indoor pool which we didn’t use but the water was very cold.
