Another Stop at Kiti
Leaving behind the flamingos and the beautiful Hala Sultan Mosque we move on to the village of Kiti, 11 kms southwest of Larnaca.
We are visiting the 11th Century Church ...
... and we have to take a track off the road to get here.
I can already imagine this beach crowded a month from now and I know for sure that it is not my piece of cake. I would not love to be out here in no way!
We are hardly 8 to 10 persons in all around here right now with a group of friends jogging, one or two fishing, but what attracts my attention is the young couple ...
... the amphitheater was a large building, or use to be, that would have Roman baths. Some of the mosaic tiles are still there and in good condition.
Next we went to the Kolossi Castle which was set upon a small hill and again, the views were spectacular. The castle had two floors and we went up the narrow staircase to the second level. From there we could see for miles.
Our last stop was to the town ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantica Oasis Limassol
We have just arrived home from two weeks at the Atlantica. The hotel is spotless the service friendly and professional. I will be back again.
For a good night out try the Stamna tavern in yarmasoia village great meze and live music. For somthing a bit more local the Santa Marie near pizzahut does good food. Avoid at all costs the Cyprus Goddessa on the main street. When we complained about the food the manager told us it was for tourists and if we wanted proper cyprus food to try elswhere even he would not eat in there.
My partner and I have just returned from a last minute break to the Atlantica, Limassol. Although we weren't expecting 5 star quality, we were really disappointed with the food on offer at this hotel. Breakfast always provided plenty of choice, but the cooked breakfasts were always cold. The restaurant was open until 10am, but I guess you had to get there first thing to sample the hot food! Dinner was much the same - the food was overcooked with little or no taste, and a bit on the cold side. The staff in the restaurant were very rude, refusing to bring the wine list, and you were lucky if your drinks arrived before you had finished your dinner! We stayed on a half board basis, although other guests were there on the All Inclusive deals, and we found that the queues for the bar during the evening were horrendously long. I have never stayed on an All Inclusive basis, and this hotel has definitely put me off staying on this basis.
Myself and my fiance have just returned from the Atlantica Hotel where we had a fantastic time. The hotel itself was fabulous, the staff were excellent and it was kept immaculate. The choice of food and meals themselves were also very nice. We had a most enjoyable and memorable holiday.
I booked the Atlantica Hotel in Thomas Cook for me and my mate to enjoy a girly holiday. Paid £405 for 7nights HB, which i was told was a good price. So we booked it and off we went.
Excellent value for money
Spacious Rooms, Excellent facilites, Rooms from as little as £25, No other 'tourist-class' hotel can compete.
Only one negative point - the road outside the 'Garden Apartments' is used by 'Boy Racers' on weekend nights into the early hours with constant screeching of tyres - this is a real shame for the hotel and the Management should pressure the council to put in 'Speed Ramps' as a matter of urgency.
This hotel is outstanding with very friendly and helpful staff. the buffet meals are fantasic although they make men wear long trousers for dinner which can be annoying when its about 90 degrees.
The location was a little disappointing however, we made the most of what was available that was enough to be honest, especially when we had a toddler with us.
We took advantage of the i day flight to egypt which was fab!!! The hotel even prepared us 3 packed lunches to go.
Me and my partner thought we would book a late deal with the winter blues coming on.
Just back from 2 weeks at the Atlantica. The Hotel itself is excellent Can't fault it. Rooms,staff, cleanliness all excellent. The pool area is a very attractive, landscaped lagoon and while we were there not overcrowded but the signs are that,in high season, it might be. Sunbeds close-packed and innumerable tables for poolside bar. The food was exceptional and good value, such that, whilst initially on a self catering package (after bad experiences elsewhere), we quickly changed to half board when we saw what the buffet was like, and again, restaurant not over-crowded but signs that it could be in high season.
