Reviewed February 11, 2014

Having spent 6 nights in the Paphinia Apartments we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the apartments were ideal for our trip! Having inquired previous to our outbound travel we knew what apartment we were staying in, a deluxe studio number 211a. This was on the top floor and even though we knew where the keys were going to be as we had arrived out of hours, the very friendly cleaner helped us up to the apartment and showed us in. Me and my wife were immediately surprised at the size of the apartment, and having the kitchen completely separate to the main room is quite a rarity with studio accommodation. We were greeted with the amazing view of the sea from the balcony and every morning the view was perfection, a real selling point! The apartment was more than adequate for our stay with small touch's like the hairdryer, washing up liquid, sponges and tea towels coming in handy, something that isn't always included these days in self catering accommodation. Balcony was fab, maybe a little to small for a table 3 chairs and a sunbed, but was nice to have the option. The tele was good, around 10 channels with about 5 being in English and having some movies playing too which were ideal for evenings after coming home from the restaurants. We had 2 single beds, which although were just about comfy, were very squeaky and every time you moved or turned over in the night the bed would be quite disturbing and wake you up. Apart from that, the apartment was all clean, beds made daily and bins changed too. Would more than likely stay again at the apartments in the winter season as the front was quiet and the rate we paid on the room was excellent compared to the summer month rates, also knowing how busy the front can get in the summer I can imagine it would be not as peaceful in the summer months. Another point is the lack of information in the rooms/reception. Although there is an emergency telephone number in the reception area that is literally it. We had no info on departing the apartment, so were not sure what time we had to leave and what we had to do with keys etc, I had to track someone down on the day of departure which happened to be the cleaner, who again was helpful but would have been easier to have had something in the apartment to inform guests.
Overall we would recommend these apartments and will almost certainly return again!

Very many thanks for your kind words which we much appreciate. We look forward to seeing you here again soon.

However, I must add the following. This couple rented a studio directly overlooking the sea at very low prices during the month of February. Our studios are enormous and they do have a balcony, but just how large a balcony do these guests expect, considering that it is part of a studio.

We make it very clear everywhere that our office is situated in flat 114 and that it is open from 8 am until 4 pm. Any queries are dealt with immediately. Our technical team is constantly on duty during the day walking around the complex, as are our cleaning ladies. So, if the beds really were squeaky why did you not tell us at once? Why wait to put it on TripAdvisor? We most certainly do not accept these so called complaints. The emergency phone is there for the evenings. The office in flat 114 is open all day and our technical staff and cleaners are also on duty all day. Not bad for the £8.40 per person per day that these guests were paying during the month of February!

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE JUST BEEN AWARDED OUR FOURTH TRIPADVISOR AWARD IN TWO YEARS. 2012 CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE, 2013 TRAVELLERS’ CHOICE AND CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE AND 2014 TRAVELLERS’ CHOICE. THERE IS CLEARLY MORE TO COME. STEVE KAUFER IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF TRIPADVISOR AND HE PERSONALLY WROTE TO PAPHINIA RECENTLY TO SAY THE FOLLOWING: “LESS THAN 1% OF ALL ACCOMMODATION LISTED ON TRIPADVISOR RECEIVE THE TRAVELLERS’ CHOICE AWARD”. THAT SAYS IT ALL. MANY THANKS TO ALL OF THOSE GUESTS WHO HAVE MADE THIS POSSIBLE.

Good apartments, with everything you need, best bit is the fantastic seaview. Central location on the harbour. Would recommend. Manager and staff very helpful, allowed us to stay until 6pm on day we left for no extra charge. Maybe difficult for anyone with poor mobility as no lift.

One of the best things at the Paphinia Apartments is that the cleaners close the curtains so when you walk in, all is fairly dark until you pull them back and WOW, this is the place to be....you may critise the apartment for being fairly basic, but I would rather say functional, its all there and working.
The cleaner found the shower head not attached properly and got it fixed within minutes,
Yes there are no mugs for your morning coffee(only cups),so we bought a couple of cheap mugs from the supermarket,it wasn't too hard was it. One morning we left for the day without taking our key with us-bit of a panic when we got back late afternoon and realised that we were locked out ! However Nina the cleaner( i think that was her name )had noticed & had left a spare key for us on the window sill - what a star !!
Now, as you may see from my other reports, we like to get out and about, turning left or right from the apartments give you walks that are a pleasure. Go and see the wonderful mosaics, the tombs, the ruins, many are free to visit
Places to eat, so many, and all offer you a great value - Viva Cyprus nearly opposite the Alexander the Great Hotel, saw us more than once.
Now back to my Pokeman quilt, gosh I miss you

Room Tip: all apartments face the sea, we had 107 which has a wrap round balcony with access from all bedrooms...

Very many thanks for your kind words which we much appreciate. We look forward to seeing you here again soon. With all due respect our top of the range kitchens and bathrooms can hardly be called “basic” and we have already explained many times why we like to keep our furniture “simple”. Again, very many thanks for your other kind words.

Just having spent three weeks in January we had a marvellous time, the apartment was superb, well serviced, great views over the sea and the harbour, quiet, yet less that 5 minutes from a very good supermarket. One can spend hours on the balcony and enjoy the view, or have a stroll on the very well planned and maintained promenade just below.
The kitchen was very serviceable, encouraging us to do some cooking, and then eating out on the balcony watching the sun set over the distant harbour. One regret, three weeks went just too quickly.

Room Tip: all rooms have balconies overlooking the sea, there is little difference from what we noticed

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was bright, spacious and had a huge balcony which could be accessed either from the lounge or main bedroom. The view out to sea and across the harbour was first class. I loved that we could have breakfast on the balcony each morning even in January! Even on windy days the balcony was nicely sheltered and sunny to make it feel warm. It was also nice falling asleep listening to the sea. The apartment is very well equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer. It also had nice touches like washing up liquid, dish clothes and tea towels and also a hair dryer in the bathroom (all of this means more room in your suitcase!). The sofa was a little uncomfortable if you inadvertently sat on the wooden spar but the tiredness of the furniture is more than compensated by the very reasonable price we paid for the apartment. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had trouble with water pressure in the shower until we found out you need to leave a switch in the kitchen (beside the kettle) switched on to operate the power shower. We also found another quirky feature that you have to switch on the cooker switch to activate the washing machine! It might be useful for the owners to consider providing a leaflet within the apartment to provide information on these kind of things? We were very happy with our stay and certainly recommend it for the stunning views and excellent location beside the harbour with easy access to lots of restaurants and bars as well as pedestrian walkways in both directions.

We stayed at the Paphina over Christmas.

If you like a place with a view of the sea and can enjoy a home cooked meal on the balcony then this place is for you.

Staff are really helpful and even helped us to find a place to rent a car for 2 days on short notice. Any problems found were fixed very quickly.

The apartment itself provides all the things necessary for self-catering, a kitchen with all the appliances and utensils for cooking and eating.

The location is the best thing which is right on the sea front of Paphos. Nearby is a large supermarket to stock up the kitchen and nearby there are many restaurants in walking distance with a good range choose from.
The local bus terminal is 2 minutes’ walk away which can get you to and from the airport in 30 minutes on the 612 bus.

We would definitely return to Cyprus and the Paphina Seaview Apartments.
