Historical Traveler Reviews Akteon Holiday Village Paphos
Akteon village Paphos Cyprus
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
pizza being thrown around before being cooked.
Lovely late break
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.
Functional but Souless
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!
Okay I booked cheap through Holiday nights website, but the place is souless, no happy feel, no buzz of enjoyment, maybe as all the staff rushing and too busy to smile. Maid was helpful when we request additional pillow and more loo rolls. Children programs maybe good, the Cypriot dance night was pathetic and they couldn't dance, in fact one of the four stopped dancing half way throu a routine and just looked at the others, she hadn't a clue what to do, and the advertisted glass balancing didn't happen. Water aerobics at 11.30am fun though. Location a way out of town, but busses good, entrance road around site passses the back of horrid old derilict warehouse and ugly mud car park.Security very lack. No way of locking your door inside, in fact the maid walked in one morning as we were naked showering. Only a yale key lock on each door, and no security at night one ever saw, so anyone could walk in off the road and go round the apartmenst, also a public footpath goes right through the the sea ward front of the site so you never get a feeling or privacy or exclusivity. Public areas clean, yet pools all close at 6pm! Why?. we would love an indoor swim at 8pm, but its locked.
Bathroom towels a bit threadbare, but they do give you extra towles for the pool in your room. well equipped kitchen, but no Microwave just a 2 hob, single oven/ grill afair. apartmenst seem very close with someone elses lounge looking in our bedroom, and out lounge and balcony looking into others bedrooms, meaning you always had to have curtians shut

Akteon Tourist Village
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)
The rooms only got cleaned 4 times in the 8 days we stayed, which for a four star was not ideal. 'Four star' should be used in its loosest terms - it's not like our four star hotels, but for the money we paid it was good value.
The entertainment staff were really friendly and approachable. I wasn't really interested in the evening entertainment but the bar area was a good place to chill out and make good use of the all inclusive drinks! The reception staff were helpful with all our questions, and organised a hire car/taxis for us.
The resort had 3 pools - 1 for small children, 1 for volleyball and 1 large pool. Unfortunately for us they were all busy, but were still nice to dip in every now and again (Sun beds and parasols were not a problem)
The food was ok, buffet style. It was not gourmet food but we didn't go hungry. On the down side you couldn't order bottles of water for the room from the bar, fortunately there was a little shop where all essentials could be purchased.
There is no beach at the hotel and from what I could see there wasn't any point hiring a car especially to go to one. However getting one is the easiest way to get around if you want to leave the hotel. The tourists sites weren't far away (not walkable) and were cheap to get in. They drive on the left to which made life easier.
All in all the hotel was comfortable, but nothing special. If you're only thinking of going for a week it's good value for money.
Enjoyable - very quiet
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.
It was clean, we had to make our own bed most days though, not that we shouldnt but it is nice to come back to a bed made room.
the pool area is lovely.
The place itself i did feel it wasnt fully finished i dont know why, we walked for a while to go in the sea but there are warnings in most places advising it is dangerous so we hired a car and travelled most days out of the area, i think if we had of stayed we would have got a little bored.
The evening entertainment was good, always something on for the family.
The restaurant was pleasant too, the hotel inside was very nice, had Big TV's and large chairs to relax in.
I probably wouldnt go back here but i dont regret staying. It was a No Frills type holiday but pleasant enough.
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!
However morning arrived and we were very happy with Akteon Village. Staff were very polite, and the rooms were basic but very clean.
The food was fantastic and had a wide variety of cuisine. There was something different every night to try!!
There is a regular bus in to pafos every 15 mins, but is about a 5 min walk. The pool was wonderful, and there were activities going on during the day and evening.
Recomend hiring a car so you can get a view around the island, however if you are thinking of going up to the troodos mountains, i would get a 4 x 4 to get up the steepness of the hills!
Very relaxing and lovely holiday!!
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.

“What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem.” (Ps 84:5-7)
Agia Kyiakis is a 12th-century A.D. Byzantine church. It is not overly impressive, but it does have a large basilica and bishop's palace surrounding it from the 4th century A.D.

Of course, there is no historical evidence for this claim but the pillar very well could have been around when Paul was ...
These graves are not thought to belong to royalty but to wealthy, prominent families and persons. The tombs date back to the 3rd-century B.C. The most impressive tombs are peristyle with Doric columns encircling an open court or lining the entrance way to the tomb. Each tomb was carved out from native rock and typically contained several graves (burial places). Most, if not nearly all, of these graves would have been present when Paul was visiting the city. ...
