... is common in this part of the World - juicy with that wonderful flavour that only a charcoal or wood fire can impart. At the end of it all, some twenty-odd different foods have appeared on the table and crossed your lips - definitely a lot of food, but still not quite what we had expected.
Tonight, we were the victim of expectations, perhaps even impossible ones that were given to us be our guidebook. It suggested that there ...
Here's a brief Greek language lesson for you - there are a number of short nature trails in and around Kalopanayiotis that Maria had pointed out to us last night, and on one of these trails leading to an old windmill, the path was lined with fruit trees - you could find apples, grapes, peaches, and pomegranates hanging from the branches, and most of the fruit was ripe enough to eat. As we marched along the trail, we marveled at both ...
... we said screw it, parking somewhere to find the place on foot, which still took a good fifteen minutes. Once did manage to find the place, boy did we ever feel like Mr Bean ... it wasn't obvious as we drove by, but there was a small sign that we had passed and looked at each and every time, never making out what it was. It may not have been the most conspicuous of signs, but after the second or third time, there was no way we should have ...
... as usual an guess what? I had a zero. First one since hitting the Mediterranean Coast. It was so nice. Everywhere we go we get some kind of nuts with our drinks. We opted out of the chips for lunch. We located the catacombs which we decided to visit next day as Vince was tired and jetting confused with the traffic and roads. He was doing well though but it had got to him by this stage. Back to the harbour area now to buy nice some sunnies as the ...
Just a real tourist day, visiting the mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion and Orpheus in Pafos,
then the Royal tombs of Kato Pafos.
On the way back to Nicosia a short stop in the hill town of Lefkara, know for its lace.

Historical Traveler Reviews Akteon Holiday Village Paphos
Just got back from staying two weeks in the Akteon village and must say it is far better than we had expected. We arrived tired and very late at night and were given our room key very quickly. We found our studio and vere very happy with the size, it must have been around 25 by 13 foot with a small but functional kitchen area and a very clean bathroom (the shower was great) Loads of wardrobe space a large settee and a very clean cot for my baby with blankets and sheets. The beds were changed every other day and the floors sweept and bins emptied daily. The only thing that bugged me was the towels they were changed every other day too so I asked at the reception if we could have them every day and that was no problem. The complex is very clean and tidy and the pools are fab(but not heated). We went self catering and unfortunaly I got food poisoning eating out and was addmitted to hospital ( the St George hospital is great) GET PRIVATE INSURANCE the local free care is poor. After being sick we started to eat at the Akteon and were very happy with the food quality which offeres a varied choice each evening from the buffet with maybe 5 different salads and a soup to start and a choice of 5 different main corses plus rice veg potatoes pasta etc and different breads, crakers, cheeses, fruit, and puddings and always a veggi option. The staff were brilliant with my little girl and would carry her all over the place while they were working in reception and bar areas my baby loved all the attention and had a great time. Outside the complex is a bit scruffy Just don't look, but there is a little shop just up the road to get milk bread teabags etc. If you go to the back of the complex and walk along the path to the left you will find a small sandy beach for the children to play on but beware of the sea there are undercurents there and I believe its dangerouse to swim. All in all my family would give the Akteon 9/10 for being so clean well spaced out good food and pools and would go back but next time not self catering as we spent so much money on the island eating out and shopping it would have been far cheeper to go AI. One more thing you have to pay 10 CY pound deposit for the aircon remote control which I would recommend getting as it also heats the room and you get the money back when you leave and give remote back ( it does get cold at night in Jan) look over the sea at night the sunsets are super. Eating out localy try pepperoni pizza just up the road, great food and the kids can watch their
We have just arrived back from a lovely relaxing 1 week break at the Akteon Village Paphos. Our party consisted of my husband and I and our 15 year old twin girls. After reading mixed reviews we were unsure what to expect in terms of weather or quality of accommodation, but we weren't disappointed. The weather was warm and sunny with a light breeze every day until around 2.pm when it cooled down and was pitch black by 5.00 p.m (get up early to take full advantage!) Accommodation was basic but spotless, as was rest of hotel. Staff very friendly especially entertainment staff Michel, Alex and Daniella - twins thought they were great fun. A bit away from Paphos centre and main attractions but v. good bus service at end of road. Recommend Jaspers and Angelikas restaurants both in short walking distance and both very reasonable. Do not go to Paphos if you are a beach lover - there are none to speak of. Would definitely go back to Akteon for short break if only to see Michel and his team! Probably try Protaras next though as we like a nice beach.
Emailed 2 x before arrival with basic requestes, eg a quiet room, nice view if possible. Emails ignored and requests ignored. Reception staff curt, not friendly, overworked, one computer for all the arrivals and depatures, often a 10 min or more wiat for simple thing such as money change. Poor quality copied sheets giving confusing info about "upgrades" and activities. Despite the Cyprus Tourist Org saying No extra charge allowed for air-con, what does akteon do? Con you into a 10 pound deposit for the air con remote and charge you one pound a day! illegal but bending the rules! Also no remote control with your Tv, again you will get charged for it. The feeling there is they just want to add eveything and make as much money out of you as possible. No smiling, freindly staff...at breakfast always a scrum and you have to walk half a mile back and forth as they don't supply trays, you collect a cup ot tea and sit down, back for everything....easy to get indigestion! My Gf lost sunglasses in the bar, asked recetion and bar staff 2 x but no one interested, just a quick look in lost property cupborad. We asked for double bed but they dont have any, all twins!
Wonderful great value

2 adults and 2 children.

staff were excellet very friendy great with kids!!
apartments were lovely very spacious and very clean. we went all incluisive witch is great for familys,food was ok, not wonderful but very good value.
all in all we are definately going to go back.
sea view was lovely,but no beach at hotel,coral bay is nearest witch is meant to be lovely.
The Akteon Tourist Village is a suitable for families or those looking for a quiet holiday. Unlike most hotels this resort was split into blocks so less chance of noisy neighbours. We stayed in a first floor apartment which consisted of a room with 2 twin beds and a kitchenette/lounge room with a sofa bed (which could be split into twin beds). We had a great view looking out to sea, which was the only noise we could hear. The rooms were basic but comfortable. On the down side you had to pay to use the air conditioning which you could only have on whilst you were in the room (weren't allowed 2 keys)
We went here for two weeks. we found it very quiet, the room was nice but our son had to sleep on the sofa as there was only two beds.
The Akteon is a very peaceful place to stay, we stayied there for 1 week, and did nothing, but chill out. The rooms are basic but comfortable, the grounds are lovely. The pool area was breath taking, with a view over the sea, sunbeds and parasols were not a problem.The entertainment staff were great, the main man michelle(or michael) and the rest, aga, pola, and darria were fantastic always game for a laugh, i reconmend getting involed with the games they are very easy and good fun, we joined in everything and had a ball, and the evening entertainment was a good laugh as well, just get yourself envolved, and the holiday will be great. The food was ok, we stayied all inclusive and had nice food, but the drinks for all in stopped at 12 midnight which was a bit disappointing, if we wanted to drink after that you had to pay for them. There is no beach at the hotel so if you want to go to the beach you hire a car or go by bus, which is not a problem.The water park is fantastic and only cost £7 in there money to get there, and we had fun. Overall the holiday was fantastic and enjoyied every minute, but it is what you make it, so join in and have a good time, and you'll be talking about it for a long time after. HAVE FUN !!!!!! WE DID
Stayed for 1, week at beginning of season with my 8 year old son, I had a relaxing time, while Adam joined in all activities. Spotlessly clean, food good, but Adam not happy as no chips! The evening entertainment could be a little dull but apparently new entertainment folk are coming. The facilities are good, 4 pools including an indoor and gym, jacuzzi, sauna etc.
Very friendly, lots of space so no fighting over loungers.
Went here May '04 with Airtours, half board. My Boyfriend and i were a little nervous at first as we went allocation on arrival, and had a night flight, so could not see a thing when we arrived in Cyprus!
Brilliant Holiday Village
I stayed at the Akteon Village in Paphos on an all-inclusive basis. Excellent facilities, food and service well above average. Only downside you had to buy bottled water and if you had an apartment on the first floor you had to carry your own case up a steep flight of 26 steps. Having said this it did not spoil a very good holiday.
