Damon Hotel Apartments
Ranked #15 of 85 Hotels in Paphos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We booked the hotel Damon apartments as we were travelling to a family wedding in Paphos. The photos seemed nice and the description stated the apartments were next door to the Kefalos Tourist Village, where a majority of the wedding party were staying.
Upon arrival we were shown to our rooms, and they were pleasant enough, but the following mornings breakfast was very disappointing and we were shocked that each day following was exactly the same! Microwaved, watery scrambled eggs, streaky bacon and frankfurter sausages. It was so unappealing by the end of the week we opted to eat elsewhere.
We were also very annoyed that the Kefalos Tourist Village was not next door as stated, but actually a ten minute walk away which was an important factor as we had both a pushchair and wheelchair to negotiate to and from several times daily.
On the Sunday of our stay we were shocked to return to our room to see that nothing had been touched despite us requesting maid service. Our infant daughter had been sick through the night (as were almost all travelling with us) and we needed clean sheets. We notified reception who promptly sent three maids to clean the room whilst we were still present. We were releived to have clean sheets for our daughter, but again were very shocked at how rude the maids were. Apparently there wasn't a service on Sundays.
We were also disgusted to find out we had cockroaches in our bathroom, coming from under the bath, which we only discovered as we were packing - we would have moved to a different hotel immediately if we had noticed them before.
I wouldn't consider staying at this hotel again, it most certainly wasn't value for money and though there were several kind members of staff, the bad outweighed the good!

Friendly staff, 2 pools (one quiet and 5 foot deep all round so adult orientated), air conditioned throughout, ideally situated, clean and well equipped.

Easily the best equipped hotel I've stayed in: B&B aparthotel is what it's billed as and it easily ,lives up to that.
They're very proud of their 4 1/2 star rating from Tripadvisor and take care to make sure your stay is a pleasant one.

We had a room on the 3rd floor, being a couple only that was no problem but I'm sure they'd accomodate those who don't like the stairs!
It had air con in both the main room (2 sofas, TV, dining table and chairs, balcony with chairs, table and drying rack over looking the pool, electric oven and hob, kettle, toaster, sink, fridge with freezer compartment and plenty of decent crockery, cutlery etc).
Breakfast is good and well stocked, there is a supermarket attached which is quite well stocked also and a pharmacist just up the road (Greek Pharmacists can & will 'prescribe' to you as they are very well trained so don't worry about seeing a doctor if you know the drugs you need!).
The main pool is larger but noisy during the day with aqua aerobics etc and music in the evening, the 2nd pool is very quiet however!
Staff are knowledgable, friendly and efficient, cleaners come in daily and leave the place spotless!
It's situated just off the main Paphos- tombs of the kings road and easily found, there's a pizza hut, large mcdonalds (with wifi) and several quality restaurants within very easy strolling distance.
The Italian Buona Sera is highly reccomended!

It's worth buying suntan lotion and aftersun, blister plasters in the UK though as they are 2 or 3 times the price over there!
Tombs of the Kings and The mosaics and roman villas at Kato Paphos are a must -take a hat and water though it was 32 degrees in October!

Great hotel, you'd have to be ridiculously fussy or just looking to criticise to find fault!

Room Tip: If you prefer to be quiet ensure you email them and ask for rooms around the 2nd pool, ours was 821...

We have just returned from 3 weeks at the Damon and thouroughly enjoyed them. This is our 3rd visit, this time with my sister and her hubby, previously with our 15 year old grand daughter and the hotel was a hit with all of them. The rooms are spotless, with maid service daily and as I have mobility problems found that the hotel was great having ramps for my wheelchair. It is great for getting out and about with a bus stop more or less at the door making it ideal for getting out and about. Plenty of bars, resteraunts and cafes close by. Will return next year - can't wait.

We stayed at this hotel for a week whilst attending my stepson's wedding in Paphos. I agree with most of the positive reviews on here - the apartments are spotless, well-located and offer good value for money. Breakfast is reasonably good with plenty of choice although the same every day - we ended up going to other places just for a bit of variety. The staff are lovely and can't do enough to help you, whatever you're needs may be. We ate at the weekly BBQ night at the hotel which was very good and had one lunch which was also of a very good standard. Outside and just along the Tomb of the Kings Road in either direction are an abundance of places to eat - we found the San Marino for traditional Greek fayre great value and the food at Big Mamas was excellent as was the entertainment!

we stayed at Kefalos Damon Hotel & Appts from 12-26 September and like a vast majority of reviewers found the hotel to be spotlessly clean,comfortable and in a great location to explore the paphos region - a real gem that can be recommended to anyone.Damon is a modern Hotel that sits at the junction of Tombs of the Kings Road [very busy coastal road] and a minor side road where the Hotel entrance is situated , we had room 115 Block A which overlooked the Entrance & side road - not at all noisy and great to be nosey and watch the to & fro of local life , rooms overlooking the Tombs Road however would be a nightmare as the main road is very busy , the other rooms are arranged around the pool so i suppose they are the better ones to aim for . Public areas are bright , airy and kept spotlessly clean there is a Breakfast serving area with indoor and outdoor seating areas,breakfast includes cooked [streaky bacon],toast.boiled eggs.cereals,cold meats,fruit with bottomless tea,coffee & friut juice,the only thing missing was an 'Egg Chef' serving fried,poached eggs & omelettes etc.The Lounge was big and comfortable but unfortunately no indoor bar area.Two pools the larger main pool from 1.2 to 2.0m deep with a small toddlers pool alongside - a smaller quieter pool is nearby - both have ample sun beds/umbrellars,availability was never a problem,sunbeds had no matresses and no towels were provided.A Poolside bar served alcoholic /non-alcoholic drinks,snacks all day,the Supermarket on site was well stocked but pricey,a good big supermarket can be found by turning right out of the main entrance and walking straight up the side road road for approx 100 metres.Rooms are spacious to say the least [we had 1 bed appt] big bedroom - comfy beds :) :) :)[with hairdryers for the ladies],fully fitted kitchen with full oven [electric not gas as stated in brochure],toaster etc etc Kitchen table,Lounge had 2 sofas coffee table and T.V.Bathroom was modern,spotless with whb,wc and bath with power shower over - bags of hot water :) towels are changed daily,bed linen twice weekly [i think] a safe is provided but the key costs E1.80/day at reception,a refundable deposit is required for the T.V remote control.Reception is manned 24/7 the staff [esp Sophia] are great and always willing to help.Damon stands on the Tombs of the Kings Road which runs from the Harbour [bus terminus] 1.7km away [20 min walk] all the way up the coastal road to Coral/Corallia Bays a total distance of 14km - full of bars/restaurants at the harbour end and numerous hotels at the top end - this is bus route 615 and runs every
few minutes for a fare of ONE EURO !!! flat rate - one way - full day rover pass cost E3,Paphos town is 20 min walk tho side streets but easy way is catch 615 bus to the Harbour [terminus] and then the 610 to Paphos town , all for E2 !! simples !! buses are modern but are very popular,they get packed !!! bus stop is literally outside the hotel.Loads of bars/restaurants on the Tombs Road all within yards of the hotel everyone has their own favourites ours was King Zorbar,E14 for 3 course menu including 1/2l carafe of village wine,great food,great price,cypriot dancers on Tues,Friday,run by Mother/Father/sons for past 20 years - but they close for the season at the end of Sept :( as mentioned before Sisyfos is also good.Moulia a few yards down the road serves "the best fish/chips/mushy peas in the world".the Harbour is packed with bars/restaurants but as others have mentioned a lot [a lot] are run by East Europeans/Russians.a Chinese/Tai restaurant is next door - that's not run by Chinese either !
nearest beach to Domon is Kefalos Beach Village [sister Hotel] about 500m away where you can use their faciities if you wish its twice the size of Damon [250 rooms against 120] has big grounds but no beach to speak of,a rocky/sandy strip,hopeless for swimming.best beaches are Corallia Bay [last stop on 615 bus] and Coral Bay [last but one stop on 615] both have good sandy beaches,cafe,sunloungers with cushiones [2 loungers + umbrellar E7.5 in Coral Bay E6 in Corallia Bay] Corallia Bay was our favourite.
a few other points
electric plugs are U.K pattern 13A 3 pin,no need for adaptors.
Thomson trips are expensive , ask at reception for S&A Coaches trips,we found them great must do trips are Kykkos and Farmagusta [Turkish held part - you need passports !!]
Exchange rate: 2.19 E/£ at home bank : 2.15 at hotel reception : 2.22 in the harbour.
Damon Hotel & Appts hugely exceeded our expectations [we always base our holiday selection based on Trip Advisor reviews] its spotlessly clean,spacious,modern,well run and in a great location to explore the Paphos region - no frills but fantastic value - it fully deserves its popularity.

Room Tip: rooms on Tombs Road are very noisy,on side road[Hotel Entrance] are ok rooms around the pool are pr...

Stayed in September (15th-22nd). The apartment was very spacious and clean and had a lovely view of the pool area. The staff were all very helpful at reception and at the bar and breakfast. The breakfast was very good and plenty of it. The location is great for going into Paphos and Coral Bay. There is a bus that runs from just outside the hotel No.615 which goes to the harbour or if you walk across the road it goes to Coral Bay. There are loads of eating places nearby too. The supermarket on site is also very handy too and the prices are good. We will be coming back!!!

Just returned from 10 day stay, travelled Sept 16 with Thomson. And ten sleepless nights!!! The beds are appalling! Single pine beds with plyboard covering the base and mattresses with no support whatsoever. Apart from that the apartments are basic but well kept, maids/reception staff very efficient and friendly. Decent value for money budget holiday, rooms overlooking main pool better option, stayed in room 512.
