Historical Traveler Reviews Damon Hotel Apartments Paphos
Nice clean, basic, room. Nice pool area, friendly staff. Great location. Would definately go back - just watch out for tarantulas! If you want to do the safaris, book them with the holiday shop over the road - a lot cheaper there than your rep can offer. And the safari trips are a MUST.
Dont go here
These appts are very basic no entertainment whatsoever not even music as you lie by the poolside. the rooms are of a good size but the whole place just seems to be very run down.
They advertise having a tennis court but you would be taking your life in your hands to use it. In the week we were there we didnt see the pool area being cleaned once there is just no life about the place even the staff on in reception seemed like they didnt want to be there. I was very dissappointed as i had booked the holiday as a surprise for my husbsnds 40th birthday, it was a surprise alright, as to how crap it was, if it hadnt been for meeting up on a few nights with other couples from N-Ireland who were also staying here and who seemed to be of the same opinion it would have been a complete disaster.
Great location, apartments basic.
We stayed at the Damon recently and found it to be quite basic, but adequate for our needs. We had a pool side apartment which in hindsight was probably not the best location as there was a lot of noise in the evenings coming from the bar area. If you are looking for a quiet location, then perhaps this would not be the best place to stay, especially in the height of season.
The apartment was clean and had a toaster, kettle, fridge etc etc. The housekeeping staff came every day to remove rubbish and three times a week to change sheets and towels. You can hire a saftey deposit box for £4.50 (Cypriot) per week and a TV for £14 (Cypriot) per week. Air conditioning was free.
The pool area was clean enough, and the reception staff were helpful.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the harbour area and the old town are about a 20 minute walk away, however, it did takes us longer as it was very hot. In the end we took the bus when we wanted to go to the harbour (a one way trip costs 80cents which is roughly £1 sterling). The bus stop is right next to the apartments and the buses run every 15 to 20 minutes.
The Damon supermarket is extremely expensive. There is another supermarket near the apartments which is A LOT cheaper.
There are lots of restuarants and cafes within walking distance of the Damon.
Pafos is a fantastic place, with lots to do and see. The harbour area is especially good with lots of shops and historical sites. The only downside to that particular area is the time share touts. Unfortunately we had a rather nasty encounter with one who was rather aggressive and practically chased us along the street shouting verbal abuse because we were not interested in the time shares.
Apart from that we had a fantastic time and would definitely go back, perhaps to another, quieter apartment complex.
when we went ther was 10 of us 4 of us had gone before and 6 had not the 4 people gt champagne on there bed and a free berr at the bar which was nice o the team there and all of us get a christmas card which was also nice of them the team there are very friendly and easy to talk to the apts are very clean and we only ever had 1 cockroach in the room the rooms are very gd quality GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY OVERALL.
Had a brilliant time, but Damon not that great...
I went to Damon Hotel Apartments in Aug/Sep 06. My first impressions were that the apartments were OK but no way the 4 star rating that they have been given. Our apartment was on the ground floor on the main road & was extremely noisy all day & all night and we didn't get the pool view that we booked! When we entered our apartment there was blood on the floor and during our stay I had blood on my sheets a couple of times. There were also A LOT of ants in the apartment all the time.
The pool area was clean, but the pool was very small & there were lots of children playing in it all the time
The staff were generally OK, Beble at the bar was extremely friendly & polite.
Overall it was an OK base because it is near to all the shops, bars etc. and also within walking distance of the harbour & the old town. I would rate it more at a 2 star or 3 at a push.
Luckily we were going to a wedding in Coral Bay and got to spend a lot of time at our friend's hotel & we had a brilliant time all things considered!!
Great value for money!
We have just returned from the Damon apts and wanted to let people know that it is really great value for money. We looked at loads of apts before we booked and it really helped to read the reviews. The apartments were very clean,comfortable and very spacious. It had a full sized fridge, toaster, elecrtric kettle and a cooker. It is very central to alot of things. There are shops, restaurants and bars close to the apartments. The harbour is about a 15 minute walk away, which is nice, more shops and restaurants etc. Paphos town is about 15 minute walk the other way, so you are in the middle of the two. We went to Coral bay beach a couple of times, which is a short bus ride away and is very nice. We were also able to use the facilities of a near by hotel/apts, which was right on a shingly beach and had a nice pool area and you could go there for entertainment during the day or evening. We went for a week and really enjoyed it, very relaxing and would reccomend it.
Great place to stay
If you are going to Paphos I would highly recommed the Damon Apartments a great central location. Apartments very good spacious and clean. Stavros the manager is very helpfull and nice, so go and enjoy your holiday in Paphos
This hotel should of been a 5 star!!!
Rooms were clean and moderen furniture we asked for a ground floor room and we got one with no complaint the pool was clean and there was plenty of space to walk around. The Bar ares was clean and you could get a drink at a very low price there was a shop just down some steps from the pool area which was very handy and a park for youngsters. Internet Acess was cheap and easy to use, tv avalable in lobby with friendly staff happy to help 24/7
Would deff go back!!!!!
11 times and counting
we have stayed at the damon hotel apts 11 times over the last 15 years and have nothing but praise for the staff. they are very friendly the rooms are spotless and the pool is cleaned regularly. entertainment is a bit thin on the ground but the damon is so well situated there is life all around you, it is a great base for a self catering holiday and we have made many friends over the years who return on a regular basis. though the price has increased dramatically over the years as paphos has been changing so much with so many new developments....
I did not like this place at all. Grubby pool area, non existent bar area. Staff were moody. Never ate there but from looking at it, never wanted to. The noise from guests was deafening at times both in the day time at the pool but especially at night/early hours of the morning.
When we found we could use the Kefalos Beach Village we spent most of our time there and it was far superior. I have read really good reviews about the Damon but I really did not enjoy my stay at all.

... aren’t great though apart from around the Paralimni – Protaras area on the south east coast. Mostly they are grey sand or stones. And in many places there are no beaches – just a rocky coast line- so it’s swimming off the rocks. But the Med is like a bath so finding a safe place to take a dip proved to be no problem.
My trip initially took me west towards Limassol, 50km away. But I only just made it ...
A Very Promising Day!
An amazing morning this day, I want to do several things but with nothing definite in mind.
My hunger for adventure centers on the Adonis Trail but always when I am here I wonder how on earth I can do it. I cannot definitely take a risk and walk all the way on ...

The sparkling water is cool, motionless and simply irresistible. How I wished I had more time!
Back to the room after dinner and every single piece of clothing is washed.
A Full and Great day ...
... but, to me it is one of the most peaceful, friendliest places I have ever stayed in. On this second visit I arrived indeed as a friend, but when I said goodbye to everyone I felt like leaving behind a family. The overall levels of service was beyond excellent as always. Traditional values count a lot here. All 4 hotels are operated in the true Cypriot tradition of hospitality and this makes me proud of being a Cypriot myself.
... years and it was for me another pleasant surprise. This shows how much the owners care for the comfort of their guests.
