Travel Blogs from Paphos
... Paphos... And saw where Aphrodite's rock is situated... We will go back and look at that properly later. We drove straight to Kriton's Dad's apartment for a light meal of fresh cut fruit, bread, olives, haloumi, and the most amazing feta cheese I've ever tasted! What a way to be introduced to Cypriot cuisine .... Delicious! Feta and sliced watermelon is a marriage made ...
... and feta coated in a rich, fruity and mouth coating olive oil, washed down with a lively, easy drinking fruity rosť situated in a residential lane way. It was like having a home cooked meal prepared by and with love by Nona!! We attended to purchasing what I call bits of **** that family expect and I loath purchasing! But anyway once in receipt of this said "****" I asked a lovely older lady, possibly a Nona similar to that who made my lunch, for directions to what ended up being ...
... of the original floor from the time of its creation at many years BC, but it too had it's challenges. It's a long way, nay a bloody long way to walk through the Siq before the beautiful, carved Treasury emerges with the sun striking it and glowing an orange red colour. The hazard of this walk is dodging the horse drawn carts that hurtle through the narrow winding trail pulling those unable but more often those unwilling to walk the journey to ...
... we had another early morning swim before going to the beach! We hadn't really had a proper beach day, so we headed to Coral Bay, where we'd read that the sand was really soft and the water was good for snorkelling. We hired a sunbed and parasol for Nana before going for a swim to cool down. The water was pretty clear and although it was hard to get in, it was lush to cool down! We swam along the whole beach to a little secluded bay, but it was covered in seaweed and quite smelly, ...

With some guidance from the hotel manager we took a coastal stroll in a loop around the neighbouring archaeological park stopping for a few pre-dinner drinks around the small fishing port. With a ten minute stroll we were back at the hotel. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kefalos Beach Tourist Village Paphos
Just returned from a one week stay at the Kefalos Beach Village and was very impressed with what we found.
We stayed at the Kefalos Beach from 12th - 16th October 2005. We were in Paphos to attend a friends wedding, which co-incidentally was next door at the Elysium (now there is a hotel!!!). We found the facilities at the Kefalos Beach to be of good standard. The pool area was very impressive and then there was a grassed area which lead down to the beach. Sun beds were placed all around the pool and grassed area, but not too close so to be intrusive. The cleanliness of the whole resort was especially noticeable. All of the public areas were spotless, the rooms also and the maid service was very good. If we had one criticism it would be that the rooms were a little dated (see photos). Apart from that this resort offers great location, clean tidy pool area and very friendly staff. We got a great rate from lastminute so all in all it was good value.
We returned this monday 10th oct 2005) from two weeks in this gorgeous resort!
We were disappointed, although the hotel is situated on the shore, there is no beach just lots of rocks (similar to a lunar landscape), in the whole week we did not see one person brave the rocks to swim in the sea.
We have just returned from Kefalos Beach Village Hotel. What a wonderful hotel. We went self-catering and were amazed at the wonderful care and attention given to the apartment by the cleaning staff, they came in every day and cleaned the floors, made the beds and left fresh towels, the bedding was changed every 2/3 days. You could upgrade to B&B if you wanted to or just go and have breakfast as and when and put it on your bill, also the same with your evening meal. We went to and Ancient Greek Night and were left Togas and head-dresses by the staff to wear, it was very enjoyable. The hotel was very clean, the pool was fantastic although we could not take full advantage of this as my daughter broke her wrist before we went and had a plaster cast, she was able to go in with a bag on her arm and in a big rubber ring!!
We have returned from a great 2 weeks holiday at the Kefalos Beach Village, Paphos. The size and cleanliness of the Hotel and accommodation pleasantly surprised us. It was much nicer than the brochure had shown.
We stayed at Kefalos Beach Village in the summer of 2004. The weather was fabulous and the accomadation really special! The hotel is very tastefully decorated and classy! Reception has a marble floor, gorgeous seating area, and lounge with a view over the pool-where you can sip a cocktail!
This is a most fabulous resort. The accommodation is in blocks of apartments with self catering facilities if you want them. We didn't bother - the restaurant is superb. An evening meal cost 7 Cyprus Pounds (about £9 sterling) and the quality is excellent. It's served as a buffet, so you can eat as much as you want!!
The staff are really friendly and very helpful.
Although a little out of the way this hotel is excellent, clean, air conditioned and all the appartments are modern. The food at the poolside was not always the best and the service a bit slow but always with a smile and all of the staff we dealt with were really friendly and helpfull, lovely pool and place to relax.
I had the most fabulous time whilst staying at this beautiful hotel. The staff are so friendly. Just booking to go again for the third time.
