... adrenaline junkies, we were up for the challenge!
The food comes in waves, with the first invasion being bread, salad, and assorted dips - it's just to get things going and isn't overly substantial, though care must be taken not to overeat right away, as bread and dips can be the worst enemy of the volume eater, especially once bread expands upon contact with any drinks in your stomach. After the warm-up, the real meal ...
As always, a good approach in life, especially while traveling, is not to let things outside of your control negatively affect your outlook. Something stupid invariably eventually happens in life, but most times it only creates problems for you if you let it. So adopting an optimistic stance on the situation ... things could have been far worse - at least ΨΕΚΑΣΜ 17;ΝΑ didn't mean ...
The problem is that the guesthouse is hidden behind a much larger hotel, up a small set of cobblestone steps that veer upwards and almost parallel to the main road - but no matter, we had finally found the place, after much effort and stress. So we went to knock on the door - no answer. Hmmm ... it is more of a vacation rental, so maybe the owners live in the house next door? We knocked on every nearby door, and every place seemed to ...
Just a real tourist day, visiting the mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion and Orpheus in Pafos,
then the Royal tombs of Kato Pafos.
On the way back to Nicosia a short stop in the hill town of Lefkara, know for its lace.
... can't pass. But the pace is slow and the few drivers take their time to find a way to accommodate the other. The buildings are showcases of old-fashioned craftsmanship; every detail made with love for the material and the result. Time has not yet pressed these places into the rush of our modern days, except for the restaurants where tour groups take their lunches. But how long will this miracle last?

Historical Traveler Reviews The Annabelle Paphos
Fantastic and real luxury
Superb hotel, location was excellent, quiet secluded areas for sunbathing all around, the hotels beach was wonderful. Spa treatments were also good although you need to book well in advance as they were very busy. Finances allowing i'd go back again and again and again
Not a lot for children at the Annabelle Hotel in Paphos, although they managed to make friends and have fun (when older guests weren't complaining - a separate pool for them might be useful). Shame the table tennis table was unavailable (apparently there used to be a pool table too). Not overly impressed with cleanliness of rooms - perhaps understaffed? The breakfasts were lovely but major meals expensive (per head out of the question if you don't have a large appetite). Think that more people would attend the themed nights if prices and entertainment were more competitive with local offers. Pool bars very good and their meals too. Most of staff very amenable and helpful (particularly in getting help when quite a number of people developed ear infections). Plush surroundings and close to local life. Poor attempt at a sandy beach. Close to water sports although very rocky surroundings. Wouldn't personally go back there but the rest of my family probably would. Met families that have been back for at least four years, so perhaps, as a particularly crabby old housewife, I spent too much time looking at the worn out furnishings and the dust under the beds to really enjoy the lovely atmosphere and weather? Although the cockroach in the wardrobe did make me think twice about whether I was being too picky!
My fiance and I stayed at the Annabelle for two weeks recently, and we were both very impressed! Location is excellent, being about a 10 minute stroll to the bars and restaurants of Kato Paphos ( harbour) and the World Heritage Site - the Roman ruins/ mosaics etc.
Relaxing break in the heat
Relaxing break in the heat!! We had a standard room which was clean and well appointed.The food was excellant in the Amorosa restaurant but we found the buffet menu in the main restaurant lacked choice and imagination.The staff were friendly and attentive.The hotel is a good choice for relaxation but the entertainment is a little lacking. Not worth upgrading for sea view as the beach is very disappointing and not very clean. The hotel pool is warm and clean, but was spoilt by the large number of children present in the hotel when we stayed.
If you want to stay in Paphos this is an excellent location, being only a few minutes walk from the town centre. We paid hundreds of pounds extra for a sea view, but it turned out to be a side sea view overlooking a path. We complained (not the only ones) and were given a room on the second floor overlooking the sea and the gardens. The trouble was that the trees were so high you couldn't actually see the gardens very much at all, and we could only see the most distant part of the sea, so we felt that we might as well have just paid the basic price for all the benefit we got. The hotel is fairly upmarket, with a pleasant, relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. Breakfasts were very impressive, with a huge choice. If I wanted to stay close to the centre of Paphos again, this would be the natural first choice as it's a class apart from the others we looked at, but I wouldn't bother paying extra for a view unless you've got money to burn.
My Husband and I were booked into this hotel for 2 weeks in June 2004. However when we arrived to Paphos my husband became quite ill and ended up in hospital for the first week.
I have just returned from a week in the Annabelle. We paid a very large supplement for a suite with sea view.
The suite we were given consisted of one room + bathroom. The main problem however is the very limited sea view from the garden suites. To see the sea from our room it was necessary to go onto the terrace, turn 90 degrees to the left and remain standing.
These suites in the garden all have their sea views obstructed by bushes about 10 feet tall outside the hotel grounds.
The Annabelle is not the best hotel in Cyprus - that honour is reserved for the Anassa at Polis - the flagship of the same hotel group. The Annabelle is, however, a quiet sanctuary to escape from the noise and squalor of Paphos Town itself.
Annabelle -best Cyprus hotel
We stayed at the Annabelle for two weeks in June, 2004
having had many holidays in Pathos, but never having stayed at this hotel. As soon as you enter the hotel you are aware of a sense of quiet sophistication. The air-conditioning is on but you don't hear it.
Everything about the hotel is 5 star; accomodation, food and amenities are all excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
We are returning - next June.
My husband and I have just returned from our week's break to The Annabelle. This 5* deluxe hotel is the ideal place for those seeking a sophisticated and beautiful holiday destination. The luxurious rooms, suites and garden suites are tastefully furnished and fitted with the most up-to-date facilities. We booked our hotel and flight separately (£897 B/B through lastminute.com for the hotel and £328 for the flights). There is an extensive choice of sports and recreation facilities within The Annabelle. The quality of the food is excellent with an extensive variety of menus on offer from the 4 restaurants in the hotel.
