... on doors a while and determining that no one was in fact around, we walked past all the closed down restaurants and shops until we arrived at at the only open hotel on the block and the very nice girl at the front desk kindly called the number on our reservation email and found someone to come open the hotel for us. After all this the room did turn out to be very nice and Mike negotiated us some free wifi. "Sir, wifi in your room will cost an ...
Justyna and the boys arrived on Friday and on Saturday Gordon and Margaret arrived so that's the villa full.
Our other guests Andy & Denice arrived yesterday as well, they have rented a villa a few kilometers away.
Everyone came over for drinks and a polish meal, we sat talking until the early hours even though tomorrow is another busy day but I think everyone had a good time.
Today all three of us headed to Paphos for a bit of sightseeing, the weather is really lovely, if not too hot, we're not complaining as we all left the UK rain. We went to see the guy about sound gear which we got for a really reasonable price.
We visited the Tomb of the Kings, a lot of underground ruins with sarcophagie, not really my thing, but apart from the weather not much else to do seemingly.
Judyata my bridesmaid arrived last night, she and I worked and lived
together in Exeter after I arrived in the UK, she is also directly
responsible for Bruce and I getting together, so needless to say she's
my best friend and Bruce loves her to bits.
We went to city hall
today to get the license and pay the fees, then headed off to Paphos to
check out the hire of sound equipment for the wedding. No luck ...
... good evening with good company, good food, weird music and even more weird chair-top dancing. Not too many plates were broken.
I got chosen to participate (oh humiliation!) but was good fun and I need to lose weight to get into my dress :-)
I asked one of the musicians where t could hire some sound equipment, so we have a lead on this,in Paphos, we will check this out tomorrow when we pick up Judyata at Paphos airport.

Historical Traveler Reviews Cynthiana Beach Hotel Paphos
Have just returned from a 1 week stay on half board basis. Hotel staff were very helpful and courteous. Breakfast and evening meals both of very good quality and varied selection every day. The hotel would suit couples particularly. A hire car is a "must have"if you wish to have easy access to the nightlife in Paphos as the bus service stops at around 11pm each day. That said, there are a few bars situated within easy walking distance of the hotel. The room itself was quite adequate and very clean. Everything (tv,air conditioning etc etc) was in working order. All in all we had a great holiday and would certainly return again.
I wanted a relaxing holiday this year after saving up for this ridiculously expensive holiday! It cost me nearly £3000 for myself, my partner and my 2 children! I thought that paying this much money, we were in for a treat... but I was so wrong! When we arrived at the hotel we were horrified to find that the hotel was hidden behind masses of banana trees (a banana plantation!) This caused all sorts a creatures in the hotel! We had lizards, spiders, and even BATS! I stayed in a room with my partner and youngest child and my oldest child stayed in a room with her auntie who also joined us on the holiday. One night, they came in from going for a meal and a few drinks with us and found an infestation of giant ants. When my sister reported this problem to reception, they told her to wait until the morning. She insisted that they sorted out the problem and the eventually came up to the room (after 2 hours!) Then, after all that they sprayed something down which had a terrible smell so all 5 of us ended up cramming up in my room that night! It is quite a boring place and there is no nightlife atall! there are a few bars and restaurants but that is it! I would recommend this place to older people but no one else! I was told that the beaches were gorgeous but don't listen! They are horrible! The only thing that this place has going for it is the weather - and that is nothing to do with Hotel Cynthiana Beach! All I can say, is if you've booked - loose the deposit! It's not worth it!!!!!
I find it hard to believe people can post good reviews about this hotel. When we arrived , the pool bar was in the process of being refurbished, there were electrical cables hanging from the ceiling and walls, there were wheelbarrows and builder`s cement everywhere. As for the hotel , it was more like a 2 star hotel - miles from anywhere- bus to Paphos stopped at 7 pm so you had to take an expensive taxi into town . The whole hotel contravened any health and safety standards. We were put into an annexe of the hotel - with a view of a concrete mixer in the car park. The Thomson rep was absolutely useless . Suffice it to say that it was so bad that we paid a small fortune to move to another hotel. Don`t go if you can help it - and certainly don`t go with Thomsons
Cynthiana beach hotel was superb.Excellent Room.Good facilities.Beautifully clean. Exceptional staff.Obliging ,friendly and courteous.
Has its own bay and sheltered beach, and gardens with chairs/sunbathers.Also hotel pools, gym etc. Beautiful views of coast.Superb selection of food for all meals.Evening entertainment. Drinks at very reasonable prices. 5 minutes walk to the bus stop. ( winter time this could be restricting) .Car hire very reasonable from the hotel desk - just over a hundred pounds for the week, with fuel and insurance for basic car. Other restaurants/pub within walking distance,also shops. About 10 minutes drive to Coral Bay, and 20 minutes to paphos sea front - at a leisurely speed.
We've just come back from a week in Paphos having stayed at the Cynthiana Beach hotel and we loved it there. The hotel itself is large but very clean and modern and is in an enviable location on a small beach with beautiful sunsets. One or two of the staff could learn how to smile (notably the restaurant cashier) but most are efficent and helpful.
I have just returned [12/3/05] from a week at this hotel. I researched my purchase on trip advisor and found the reviews helpful.
Having spent 12 days in November 2004 at the Cynthiana Hotel, - our first trip to Cyprus. We cannot fault the excellent service we received. From the chambermaids to Management - nothing was too much trouble for them.
Food wonderful, accommodation brilliant , staff extremely friendly and scenery - well what can one say.
Certainly will be going back again.
Have just spent 1 week half board at this hotel. As the brochure describes it is remote from the main town of Pafos approx 10 mins on local bus which goes from approx 300 yards from the hotel. Cost 70 cents for any length of journey en route. Hotel is kept clean, has recent signs of decoration to the exterior and work still ongoing in preparation for the main season. Bedrooms were of good size with heating/air conditioning, small table and armchair, balcony and balcony furniture. Most rooms have exceptional sea views and sea/mountain views. Towels changed daily and room maintained daily. Food was good and plenty of it. Staff were polite and helpful. Daily evening entertainment programme of amateur acts - you take it or leave it.
Terrific views, but that's about all this ageing, slightly grubby-looking hotel has going for it. Location is peaceful, but very isolated. (A location like this needs a very comfy / luxurious hotel to compensate for the lack of local amenities. The Cynthiana certainly doesn't fit the bill)
We have just returned from a 7 day half board holiday at this hotel over the New Year week, in my books the hotel does not warrant the three stars that Thomson give it in the brochure, and i quite agree with your rating of two stars with room for improvement, yes the hotel entrance is quite nice but once you enter the lift to go upstairs the standard starts to fall dramatically, the bedroom furniture is functional but a bit outdated and not much in the way of storage for smaller items of clothing, the bathroom had broken tiles on the floor and the shower curtain was stained and marked , but there was plenty hot water on tap. TV provided was very old with no remote control so you had to manually change channels , the room Heating / AC did not work (although i did not try it till the last night when the weather turned a bit colder) the beds however were firm and comfortable
