TravelPod Member ReviewsEstella Hotel Apartments Limassol
We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this was average and the most expensive especially as breakfast was not provided.
Friendly reception staff at check in and helped with taxi booking, sightseeing tips etc. Room a decent size and clean, but had an ant issue! Location is pretty good for the tourist area, with s hort walk to the beach and close to number 30 bus stop to town. We enjoyed the karaoke at the Step Inn pub nearby, plus big sandwiches at Stevos near the Teepee bar. However it is a bit like just being back at home, and not ideal for a sightseeing holiday. Also Limassol as a whole seemed a bit run down, and the tourist strip lacked vibrancy. Best places to eat further east just past KFC where you can get a good 3 course meal for about 13 euros. Bus trip to Kourion was a bit of a pain using local transport and maybe not worth the efforrt if you´ve been to Efesus or the like.
Wifi is free in reception area as you´d expect, but does not make it to pool area.
The shower was actually a mini-bath with a very curved bottom which was rather tricky to use and the curtain didn´t provide full protection.
The service taxi reserved by hotel arrived a bit early, but waited for us and took the hassle out of going to Pafos.
Limassol was my least favourite place in Cyprus, but if you really want to go there, then this place will suffice and although expensive for Cyprus, it is reasonably priced for Limassol. Yet another reason to avoid this city!! (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

I woke up at my hosts house and chatted with the family for a bit in the morning and was off again. My last day in Cyprus. I had about a 70 KM drive to my final stop of Limassol. I wish I had more time here in Cyprus, but didn't. There is a lot more to see, but I didn't have time. The weather was not great here and not good for beach time, but …
... Kemel Attaturk, the founder of modern Turkey. Any excuse for a day off! Oh well, this is North Cyprus so we will try again tomorrow. However; trip was not wasted as we had planned to cross to the south as well. It was our first time taking the car so wanted to make sure we knew what to do and what was needed. Arrived at the Metehan crossing in Lefkosia, passports checked on Turkish side....drove to Greek checkpoint and ...
... less than a month and I will try to make the most out of it.
Flying by Aegean Airlines the 9th of May, my flight takes off at 10:45 arrival time 12:25.
I am supposed to spend the first two days (weekend) with Mum at home, but my sister has a better idea so we drive off to Lefkara the two of us to our little humble cottage out there for the first night.
We take along ...
... since they are included in the seafood mezze choice, anyway.
At this point I have to remind my readers that it is true, the very best mezze in Cyprus comes towards the end. For readers who are ignorant of what 'mezze' is, I have to add that it is similar to the Spanish tapas -small dips and several variable dishes. You can find 2 types of Mezze. It could be the normal mezze with dips and smaller portions of different Cypriot dishes like staffed ...
... 5th April; this is one way of alleviating seasonality throughout the winter months with local economies in rural communities being supported (Cyprus Profile, 2014). With Cyprus exploring new special tourism interests, walking tourism is one of those and this is an ideal type of tourism to be promoted in the country, with nature trails taking place in the Troodos Mountains, Machairas, Akamas and Cape Gkrecko. Cyprus has struggled to maintain a competitive place within ...
