Aloha707 stayed here on Jul 30, 2010 during their trip titled: Aloha707's Great Adventure.
Late morning. We set off on our next part of our journey. Paris to Paphos. Our flight with Cyprus Air was great... Smooth as and had a fantastic view of the many scattered Greek Islands as we headed towards Cyprus into Larnaca International airport. Kriton and Laura were there to pick us up and drive us to Paphos. There is an awesome highway straight through Larnaca and ...
... and feta coated in a rich, fruity and mouth coating olive oil, washed down with a lively, easy drinking fruity rosť situated in a residential lane way. It was like having a home cooked meal prepared by and with love by Nona!! We attended to purchasing what I call bits of **** that family expect and I loath purchasing! But anyway once in receipt of this said "****" I asked a lovely older lady, possibly a Nona similar to that who made my lunch, for directions to what ended up being ...
... of the original floor from the time of its creation at many years BC, but it too had it's challenges. It's a long way, nay a bloody long way to walk through the Siq before the beautiful, carved Treasury emerges with the sun striking it and glowing an orange red colour. The hazard of this walk is dodging the horse drawn carts that hurtle through the narrow winding trail pulling those unable but more often those unwilling to walk the journey to ...
... drove to Coral Bay to look at the harbour. We walked along the promenade and looked at all the boats, and also saw a cool old castle.
On Wednesday we swam in the pool straight after breakfast (how amazing is that!) and then we drove southwards to Kourion, where there are lots of ancient ruins from Roman times. We saw the remains of some roman baths (which used hydraulic systems! The romans were so smart!) and lots of mosaics, but my favourite part was definitely the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Constantinou Bros Pioneer Beach Hotel Paphos
Just returned a week ago from a 2 week stay in what was our 1st time in Cyprus.
The hotel in itself is quite nice, slightly old fashioned and in need of a refurb. The rooms are of average size but not the standard of 4* accomodation and certainly expensive for what it was. The clientele of the hotel is 90% over 50's, for the first few days we were the only couple in our 30's. Because of this, the entertainment is limited, and not of a great standard. The location was average, a 15-20 minute walk into the centre of Paphos, but did have buses virtually outside the hotel every 15-20 minutes. The other positive was the buffet was extensive and suited all tastes.
My boyfriend and I travelled to Paphos, Cyprus on 8th May 2005 for 1 week. We found the best deal on flights on the internet with First Choice. We booked our return flights in January 2005 at a total cost of £359.
I stayed at the Pioneer Beach Hotel, Paphos Cyprus in April 2005. On arrival the staff were welcoming. The rooms are of a good standard and are kept pristine throughout your stay. Fridge, tea and coffee making facilities are provided in your room. Bathrobes, slippers and pool towels are also provided free of charge. Fruit and Water are waiting in your room on arrival. 70 Cent bus ride to the Harbour or a 45 minute flat walk. Might be a little too far out of town for the less mobile.
We stayed at the pioneer - had a fab time, everything so superb - clean, friendly, absolutley HUGE selection of fantastic food - don't even bother with the a la carte - the buffet is just soooo much better - so good, i would go back just for the food!
The best yet.
40 years of holidays, the best alround hotel yet, went once on recomendation been back ten times.
You'll find the hotel in a superbly quiet, beach front location about a 30 minute walk to the tourist centre of Paphos (buses are frequent and cheap!). The actual building itself and interior design is certainly not cutting edge and appears of an older style than one would expect from 2000/2001 refit, however all the fixtures and fittings are well maintained and everywhere is spotlessly clean! There are many great features to this hotel; not least that there are no children! The staff are amazingly polite, friendly and knowledgeable and literally nothing was too much trouble for them. The majority of guests were somewhat older and took advantage of the full board lifestyle. I doubt if most of them ever left the hotel. The hotel has it's own beach area which was certainly a benefit. The superior room in which we stayed had a more than adequate balcony area, perfect for watching the sunset of an evening. I would certainly recommend the superior full sea view rooms to enjoy the best of the location. Overall, it is a well maintained and friendly establishment which is ideal for making as a base for your time in Paphos.
Stayed at the Pioneer Beach Hotel for a week at the beginning of September. Booked independently although a lot of the large tour operators go here. Hotel is only 15 mins by taxi from Paphos airport £13/16. If you contact the hotel direct they will arrange a transfer for you. Was pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation. Rooms and balcony not very big at all, but clean with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay including tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, dressing gowns etc. Breakfast was excellent with a vast selection to choose from. Hotel has a large pool and leads directly onto the beach and provides a peaceful setting for relaxing in the sunshine. There are special events every day i.e. strawberries and cream so check out the posters in the lifts. My only complaint would be about the reserving of sunbeds. Considering the hotel was predominently British I was appalled by the way people were getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve beds! Paphos harbour is a short bus journey from the hotel. To walk it takes about 40 mins. There is a very regular bus service from the bus stop outside the hotel which costs 50c. We found that the best restaurants were located before the harbour itself. The "Seagull" is one to look out for. All in all we had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend this hotel.
Loved this friendly adult only hotel
We have visited this hotel at different times of the year in small and large groups and always had a good holiday, this August will be my 4th time in a group with my husand and six friends.
My mother who is 84 this year went last May with my sister and I and is looking forward to going again next May. The grounds are level and everything is within easy reach ie the pool, grass areas, the beach, cafe and dining room. The food is good and the hotel staff efficient and firendly. The bars and lounge areas are clean and comfortable. If I had a complaint it would be that the rooms need a little updating, but are clean and comfortable. Within walking distance are shops, restaurants etc. and the bus to Paphos town and beyond stops just outside the hotel.
