... went and the sun came back.
Still heading west our next stop was Kurion. Even more ruins here and Jayne opted out of this one. I limited my visit to seeing the amphitheatre which had been restored. It's position on a hill top overlooking the sea was amazing. The curving coastline reminded me of Chesil Beach in Dorset.

... National Museum was a fairly compact but it was clear that it was a temporary exhibition while the main building opposite was being restored. It contained many interesting artifacts like an army of terracotta warriors ranging from life size down to five inches tall. A bronze horned statute was in remarkably good condition for its three thousand year old age. The museum did not exhaust us and we left having enjoyed the visit.

... The site was obviously being developed and what it lacked in information it made up for in freedom of access.
Our last visit was to Geroskipou. This village was on the road to the airport. It was described as quaint but wasn't. The small church was attractive though and worthy of a later visit if time permits.
We took the coast road back into Kato Paphos and stopped for a beer at The Harbour bar. We returned to the hotel quite ...
After a couple of days in the car and with the probability of this being the last day of fine weather, we decided to spend the day in Paphos. After a lazy start to the day we strolled down to the harbour and sat in the sunshine drinking coffee and watching runners finishing a half marathon road race. It was quite busy and noisy but entertaining.
We next visited the Kato Paphos Archaeological Park. This occupied a large area of the ...

We met a Swedish couple and chatted, learning that the man had been a Detective inspector and had worked in a number of countries with the United Nations which was how he had come to Cyprus. The town centre was as expected. A trashy looking array of bars and clubs. It must appeal to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aliathon Holiday Village Paphos
We stayed here at the end of last summer whilst visiting friends in Cyprus. Its a lovely place, very well maintained. We opted for the upgrade studio apartment which was well laid out, spacious and overlooked the pool. The "superior" rooms were nicely positioned and felt very private, on this side of the complex is the superior pool and if you can get a good deal its worth paying the extra. The restaurant on site was ok, food was average but good for a quick bite-the shop has everything you would need but there is a larger cheaper supermarket in the town. Aliathon is situated about 15 mins walk from the center of paphos. It was a lovely relaxing place to stay and I would recommend it if you want to visit this part of Cyprus. Its suitable for all types, couples, families etc... If I was going back to Paphos I would definitely stay here again.
Malgré le titre de cette critique, nous avons passé un bon séjour dans cet hôtel. Il est impeccable et le personnel est accueillant et très serviable.
Nous avons changé d'hôtel pour aller au Eleni car notre ami y séjournait. L'appartement était propre, lumineux et aéré. La propreté était très importante pour le personnel et nous n'avions aucune inquiétude quant au haut niveau d'entretien de notre appartement. Il y avait pas mal de monde à la piscine-lagon avec la « course » habituelle tôt le matin pour réserver les meilleurs emplacements. Les touristes pensent que l'on doit réserver des transats, ce qui m'agace profondément et qui est très courant où que l'on aille.
Just right for us

We have just returned from a week in the Aliathon Village in Paphos. We had booked a one bedroom apartment for two people and on arrival we were shown to an upstairs apartment at the pool near reception.
I am just back home from the Aliathon on Friday/Saturday as our flight home was delayed by 6 hrs. However other than that I enjoyed my stay in the Aliathon. There are two types of apartments on site - standard 1 bed apartment and then the superior 1 bed apartment. I mailed the apartments direct a few months beforehand and asked if I could upgrade to the superior apartment for just an extra 35 cypriot pound for the week for the room. We had a nice room - very spacious with two balconies. One leading from the living area which had tables and chairs and the second balcony had two sun loungers. The kitchen however had no toaster and just had a two hob cooker plus a microwave oven underneath the hob cooker. The apartments were cleaned daily with the exception of Sundays which was probably the cleaners day off. Paphos is quite expensive so bring plenty of money with you. It is dearer than Ireland and Ireland is expensive. Outside the Aliathon there is a bus service that brings you into the town centre ie about 10 mins away - bus service costs 0.80 cypriot money each which is about 1 euro 55 cent each. Taxis are dear - 5 cypriot pound approx €10 even for a short run so use the bus service if you can. Nice coffee shop outside the Aliathon that has nice doughnuts daily. There are two pool areas at the Aliathon - one is solely for the people who stayed in the superior apartments. Has a lagoon style look about it. The gardens are kept very well around the whole apartment blocks. Eating out in Paphos is expensive also. Went to Coral Bay one evening and you can go by bus here on the number 15 bus and it will still only cost 0.80 cypriot pound each as it is about a half an hour on the bus. The market is on till 2.30pm each day and get the number 11 bus here from outside the apartments. Nice way to spend one of your mornings as loads to see at the market. This is in the old town of Paphos. I would definetly go back to the Aliathon - wish was still there now.
My parents and I stayed in a standard one-bedroomed self-catering apartment and was very pleased with the standard of the acomodation. It is quite new and had everything that we needed except for a radio and a toaster as opposed to a grill which took ages to use in the mornings. There is a maid service to change towels/beds etc but it was noticable as the holiday went on that mopping the tiled floors properly was not a priority. There is a resort supermarket but i suggest you only use this for for basic essentials on the first day because the mark-up is at least a quarter compared to the local hypermarket we used.
Myself and my partner stayed here recently in a 1 bed apt for 2weeks. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Apartments were nice and well maintained, cleaned daily. On more than one occasion we asked the cleaners to go away so we could sleep in! The staff were friendly and very obliging when we left our key in the room... four times!
Despite the title, we actually had a lovely time at this resort. it is spotless, the staff are welcoming and extremely helpful.
