This is our second time at Aphrodite Hills and this visit was equally as enjoyable as our first. The apartment leading straight onto the pool was perfect for our 7 year old boys. The pool was never crowded but there was always other children and families for the kids to have fun with. This trip we hired a car from the airport and we explored the island most days - eating out in Pissouri and Kouklia and have the best day out in Latchi hiring our own boat. The rental company were always prompt and helpful whenever we needed them. We love this place and are unsure if we will ever find a holiday to beat it
We needed a relaxing holiday after A level results and other hassles and this was a lovely quiet spot.
Lovely apartment, arguably the best position in Theseus.
The apartment is big enough for 4 and very good value.
Near (walkable) to the shops and facilities at Aphrodite Hills.
It has a parking space.
Great relaxing garden.
Near Aphrodite's Rock and many historic sites (Kourion, Kouklia, Tomb of the Kings). In August historic sites shut at 7,30pm but the heat of the sun is prohibitive before 6pm so its a bit of a trolley dash.
Nicosia is an hour and a half away-well worth a drive.
Huge bathrooms (although the tiles could do with a bleach)
Aphrodite Hills is an ex pats heaven. We weren't aware of this. If you want the real Cyprus book a villa in a local village (off Aphrodite Hills).
The restaurants onsite were very average. Again eat elsewhere if you want authentic food. If you are veggie like us please get in touch as we really struggled to find good vegetarian food. I have a list of restaurants now.
If you have teenage kids the number of little ones (and their inflatables), on Theseus may get on their nerves. Theseus is amazing for under 10s as the pool is so so safe but book Apollo Heights for more serious swimming.
The beaches in the area are not great. If you need shade, as we do, I would only visit Corallia (Coral Bay) and the Aphrodite Hills beach (Zias). Do not visit Ladys mile. Its towards Limassol and right next to the docks. Its loud and unloved with dirty grey clay sand.
Finally- The staff at Aphrodite Rentals were helpful, arranging a breakfast basket on arrival, recommending a car rental (Paforentals-the easiest car rental we've had in 10 years) and the staff let us stay for a late check out which meant I had extra time in the pool.
I would have no reservation recommending this holiday rental for young families.
