“Just Wonderful”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

The notice board on the front of the apartments states' The Best Sea View Apartments in Paphos' If there is better in Cyprus I would be surprised.

What an amazing place the views from our second floor apartment with large balcony were amazing. The staff are friendly and helpful and so polite and offer a 24 hour contact number that is always manned but not on site. The rooms are cleaned to such a high standard daily and towels replaced every couple of days. How many self catering apartments offer that? We were in room 201 at the end of the block it was bright and well decorated. The balcony had a very high glass frontage so it didn't spoil your views but was very safe. Our apartment was on the top floor and access is by 5 very short flights of stairs that are easy to manage unless you do have mobility problems.

Air conditioning is available and at just 5 euros a day which is just amazing value. You have all the cutlery, crockery etc. you want and if you want to come in from the fabulous balcony you even have a large flat screen TV.

As its self catering there is a very large local supermarket offering all your food and drink needs 2 minutes walk from the back of the building, but the area is awash with good quality local bars and restaurants offering some very good food they are the quieter bars many offering a 3 course menu of the day from as little as 10 euros. The vibrant harbour area offering 'The Castle' and some livelier bars offering 'Happy Hours' and beer from 1 .50 euros a pint is just a short walk away. The other way takes you to the local beaches again just a very short walk away.

Paphinia Sea view apartments has it all location, cleanliness and friendly staff who go out of the way to make your stay a great memory.

Room Tip: Top floor views are amazing. Make sure your tour operator gives you good directions and how & wh...

Best studio apt we have ever stayed in. Everything from pre- holiday e-mails to enquiries while we were there, were dealt with promptly and efficiently. We stayed in 118b which was a very large room with double bed, table and four chairs plus settee. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. The fridge freezer was great we had constant ice for drinks on the balcony overlooking the sea. I even cooked us an evening meal one night having spotted some lovely king prawns in the supermarket just round the corner, would never normally do this in holiday accommodation but was inspired by the cleanliness of everything. We even made use of the washer and dryer by doing a wash of all our t-shirts etc. the day before we left. All staff we encountered were very helpful, We went to the office the morning after our arrival as we had some concerns over our car hire, (which was nothing to do with Paphinia we had arranged this ourselves from England), Elena immediately rang the company for us and resolved our problem, we enquired if there was a sun lounger available, less than 10 mins later one was brought to our room. All in all couldn't fault this place if we tried, would definitely recommend for anyone wanting an apartment in Paphos.

This year we had room 101 - huge sunny all day balcony so we stayed put for a few days sunbathing - we had absolutely no noise from the local fair, which was interesting to watch & experience sleeping with a sea breeze we had the best sleep ever. We ate a few times in pizza express (15% discount for paphinia guests) great service & food. Elena was very helpful as we extended our stay, nothing was ever too much trouble & Nina & the cleaners were always around if we needed anything like a loo roll.There is a beach literally across the road if you fancy an early morning swim. Parking is also available free & you can easily walk to the harbour & shops - these apartments are in the perfect place & I feel they've got it just right - you are left alone but they are there if you need them - we found the service & food in Paphos excellent value and will continue to support Cyprus tourism . These apartments are a gem and could charge so much more - go visit!!

Room Tip: 207 top floor is great for views but most apartments only have sun for part of the day 101 has sun a...

we stayed in 202 for a week in early June and and the apartment suited our needs exactly. it had a fabulous balcony which ran across the sitting room/kitchen and the bedroom with two large sliding doors to each room. considering there is a road in front of the apartments it is quiet - the glass on the balcony was an effective barrier and the road closed from 9pm anyway so brilliant for people watching
it is well equipped for a holiday let with a nice kitchen including large fridge and freezer - supermarket is 5 minute walk away. furniture is clean and basic just as we like it as you can actually use it without worrying about spoiling anything.
we booked directly and the communication was excellent both pre and during - a few days before we flew we were given our apartment number and the location of the key as our flight was in the evening - all this was easy and went smoothly. the half hourly bus from the airport goes to within a two minute walk of the apartments for one euro. it is on the front so easy to find . the office is staffed by the very helpful Elena in apartment 214 who booked us a taxi and helpfully answered any queries.
For us the bonus was the washing machine and dryer as we travelled hand luggage only, also clean towels were provided as and when needed.
we have been recommending it to friends since we came back and if going to paphos again, especially for some winter sun this will be top of our list. thanks for a lovely holiday

Good to hear that these guests state that they found the flat to be quiet. We do think that these flats are indeed quiet. The country fair (see above) only takes place once a year for one week.

Our office is situated in flat 114 and is open from 8 am until 4 pm. It is situated directly above Pizza Express in the Paphinia square. N.B. the food in Pizza Express is excellent and with all due respect much better than back in the UK. It also offers a good discount to all guests staying at Paphinia

Just returned from another repeat visit to the apartments and really enjoyed our stay once again. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and quick to sort out any issues. We didn't really have any issues other than loo seat needed fixing and kettle replacing.

Views from apartment are fantastic - could happily sit there all day. Apartments have washer and tumble driers which mean you don't need to take as many clothes and don't need to have wet clothes decorating the balcony.

Plenty of restaurants on the doorstep and big supermarket, Panantoniou, less than 5 minutes walk away. There is a bus station round the corner and bus prices are cheap.

Restaurants to recommend which are a little distance away:
Thomas's Jungle Tavern on Tomb of the Kings Road - friendly, good value for money and lovely people working there who will make you very welcome.
Seriani in Coral Bay. Bit more expensive but worth it - can recommend the suckling pig.
Samisen in Coral Bay. A bit expensive but well worth it. Take your camera and enjoy the showmanship. Good night out and children will really enjoy it too

Room Tip: Apartments are on 1st or 2nd floor and there are no lifts so ask for 1st floor if you have problems...

My friend and I have been to Paphos three times previous and this was our first stay at the Paphinia Sea View apartments. I had read on previous reviews that there were a fair few stairs to climb if you were on the second floor, so I emailed them before we went to request a first floor apartment which we got - 107. The apartment was on a corner so we had a brilliant view of the sea view and the castle.

We arrived on the 16th June in the middle of a festival which meant there were street stalls all along the main road and in the evening it got very noisy until the early hours so if you liked to get to bed early (which we did) it was difficult to sleep much before 1 am but other than that it was fine.

A reception meeting on the Tuesday was helpful and we took advantage of a trip to Limassol which covered a few stops and we really enjoyed the day.

The key was on the window sill as informed in several emails we had received earlier so while the office wasn't open it didn't matter at all.

We tried to use the spin cycle on the washing machine and it wasn't working so weren't really that bothered but within about 5 minutes a man turned up at the door to fix the washer - I was very impressed that they even knew we'd tried it and it hadn't worked (are they psychic or may be more like it they have a control room) either way i was impressed with the service!

We missed the fact there wasn't a pool and it's the only place i've stayed where you have to pay extra for air conditioning - couldn't have survived without it so didn't have the choice but to pay.

All in all we were very impressed with these apartments and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again were we to return to Paphos.

Room Tip: I would suggest a first floor apartment but can't imagine any being bad

Very many thanks for your kind words which we much appreciate. We look forward to seeing you here again soon. Nevertheless, we do have a few comments of our own to make.

The stairs are hardly steep. It only takes a matter of seconds to walk from the first floor to the second.

The local country fair takes place for about one week at this time every year. If the guests really found it noisy they could easily have slept in the rear bedroom with the acoustic double windows closed and the air-conditioning turned on. In this way there would be no noise whatever.

There are very many different appliances in our fully equipped kitchens. These may well be very different from the ones that guests use at home. In this case there was a minor problem with the washing machine and it was indeed repaired within five minutes as this guest has already stated. Try getting that service back in the UK!

We have made it very clear for three years now that Paphinia SeaView does not offer a swimming pool, however, a European Union Blue star beach is just a two minute walk away.

Like all hotel apartments across Europe in the summer air-conditioning is an optional extra. This is made very clear in the brochure of the travel company with which these guests travelled.

My partner and I have been holidaying in Cyprus for several years, usually in or around Paphos. We have stayed in different types of accommodation several times and have not really had much to complain about. We are quite fussy and do our research beforehand.

We stayed at the Paphinia for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it was an experience that far surpassed any accommodation we've had so far.

The location is superb. The view is off the scale. The apartment is neither luxurious nor basic, but is definitely luxurious basic. It is cleaned and linen changed daily - never had that before ! They are large rooms with a large balcony. Sun most of the day. The staff are very accommodating. I can't imagine getting a better value-for-money holiday anywhere else on the island.

I could go on about this place but suffice to say that since we got back home we've been talking about little else other than going back..... so we just booked to return on the 6th September ! I just hope this time we get low a number apartment, as the view is better.

I give the Paphinia 5 rating but only because there's no way to give it a 6.

Room Tip: Don't worry.They are all good.

Thank you very much for such kind words. We appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you here again soon.

Over the last week we have been inundated with e-mails and questions as to how Paphinia could possibly have won three TripAdvisor awards in just twelve months. Certificate of Excellence 2012, 2013 Traveller’s Choice and 2013 Certificate of Excellence. Yes, it is possible but very rare! We have also received a letter from Steve Kaufer, the Chief Executor Officer and Co-Founder of Trip Advisor, in which he informs us that “less than 1% of all accommodation listed on TripAdvisor worldwide receives such a Traveller’s Choice award”.

We always try to do our very best but we cannot always be perfect, especially bearing in mind the undemanding prices which we charge. If there is ever a problem we should be informed at once and we will always try our very best to correct matters as soon as possible.

Unfortunately there is always a tiny minority who wish to go out of their way and make comments that are usually beyond belief.

We now have one request to make to all our future guests. Would you please find out as much as you can in advance from your travel company or directly from Paphinia regarding your flat number and where your key can be picked up. This will help everybody, especially our guests arriving late at night.

We now show the advice which we have sent to all the Travel Companies who deal with Paphinia.

Our office hours are 8 am until 4 pm Monday to Friday (Tel: 26954088). Outside office hours (i.e. after 4 pm on weekdays and over the weekends and public holidays) the guests will find the key to their apartment right in the corner of the kitchen window-sill nearest to the apartment front door.

Our small reception in the square is to be found just two yards away from the one and only PIZZA EXPRESS restaurant in Paphos. Every Paphos taxi /bus driver should know where to find this. Every drop off and pick up should be to this site.

Stuck onto the large front window of this small reception in the Pizza Express square they should also clearly find an A4 sheet of paper which states:-

Mr.& Mrs …………
WELCOME TO PAPHINIA
YOUR FLAT NUMBER IS …….

Our out of hour emergency phone number is: Nikos: (00357)99 655263.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us (baffinia@cytanet.com.cy).

Wishing you all a wonderful stay at Paphinia SeaView Apartments.
