Visited here last two weeks of school holidays. Cost 2k for 2 weeks self catering accommodation for 5 of us. 2 adults & kids age 15, 13, 7
Nice enough place but rooms very basic certainly not 4* and in need of refurbishment. Bathroom shower curtain stained, rail rusty & sink cracked. Only one bedroom so kids slept in kitchen/living room.
I had emailed the Avanti before we arrived asking for a 1st floor apartment near the pool.
On arrival they apologised as the could only give us one or the other so they had given us an apartment near the pool which meant we were in a ground floor apartment. This meant we didnt have a balcony, just a patio and the patio is overlooked by all the other apartments so no privacy at all.
No utensils in kitchen so quite difficult to cook anything other than toasties! Only 4 chairs round the small table and there was 5 of us!!
Friends of ours hired a 3 bed apartment in Paphos with shared infinity pool & kiddy area for around £960 for 2 weeks! So I feel this place is very expensive. I thought it may be worth paying extra for kids club but.....
Kids club was a shambles and my 7 year old who was very excited about the prospect took one look and decided he didn't want to go and I didn't blame him as there was one member of staff in the kids club who just seemed to sit with kids whilst they coloured in so any kid over 3 would be bored senseless
Staff are very helpful and nothing too much trouble, especially reception staff. Pool area was very clean. Though 2 of my children had ear infections whilst there.
13 year old son used the gym & indoor pool every morning. We didn't walk over to the hotel as felt that the food wouldn't be as good as restaurants and not really into buffet style dining.
Entertainment staff lovely but seemed very disenchanted with management as they don't seem to spend anything on helping them in producing decent entertainment.
Poolside restaurant is ok. Decent sized portions but it's only open for breakfast and in the afternoon.
Attached Piazza has 3 restaurants and one bar. Fiesta bar & restaurant is only good for watching football matches in! Staff pester the life out of you to have another drink and then take ages to give you your bill and food is exceedingly mediocre and not cheap. Little Eatily does great pizzas, would recommend it.
A 5 min walk up the rd brings you to a number of restaurants (turn right out of the piazza) all quite good and reasonably priced. Meat Academy and Chinese restaurant (can't remember it's name but it's upstairs next door to Gabor French restaurant) are very nice.
Paphos harbour 20 min walk away or short bus ride away only 1 euro & children free But well worth a visit.
Water sports at the harbour are good fun and cheaper than at Coral Bay beach
Would recommend Laona Restaurant in the old town you'll need a bus to the harbour then another one out to the indoor market but well worth a visit for the totally authentic Greek meze.
We hired a car and drove out to Latchi near the Arkansas Peninsula. Very laid back place with nice beach and lovely harbour restaurants. Coral Bay Beach is also worth a bus ride to.
All in all would return to Paphos as it's lovely but wouldn't come back to the Avanti as think it's overpriced for the standard of accommodation
