The ancient city of Kition is identified by the ancient Jewish historian Josephus (37-100 A.D.) as Kittim in Hebrew (Ant. 1.6.1). The area of Kition was inhabited as early as the 13th century B.C. by Mycenaeans and then later by Achaean refugees by ~1200 B.C. after the destruction of the Mycenaean populace in Greece. The original city was composed of mud-brick houses with cyclopean, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Napa Plaza Hotel Ayia Napa
Wonderful relaxing holiday
We have just come back from a weeks stay at the Napa Plaza hotel. We were there from 17th to 24th May 2006.
What a fantastic holiday we had.
The hotel is ultra modern, the food excellent and plentiful and the staff could not do enough for you.
We had a superior pool view room. We got bathrobes and slippers, mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and fruit and wine on arrival.
The room was lovely and clean the bathroom however we felt was a little on the small side as was the balcony. But the pool view we had more than made up for this. We spent most evenings out on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine before dinner.
The weather was hot hot hot so it was fantastic having air conditioning.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the whole hotel was kept spotless at all times.
I would recommend this hotel to everybody as it is a first class hotel and the best we have stayed in by far. The Napa Plaza is a 4 star hotel as far as we are concerned. We are returning next year with our friends and family.
Just returned last night having spent 1 week at the Napa Plaza. The hotel is really fantastic and anyone going out there will be really pleased with their choice. Staff are very friendly and hotel is very modern and spotless. Pool is very nice.
We had a superior room facing the pool, air con is excellent, Superiors get a fridge, slipper and bath Robes, we didnt get the Bath Robes so reception gave us a voucher for a meal in the hotel ( we were B & B) Evening Buffet was usual hotel food, restaurant was a bit hot that night but they do outdoor buffet and BBQ's 4 nights out of 7. It was my birthday when we were there and they sent me a note that morning saying happy Birthday and also delivered a chocolate cake in the afternoon! Well impressed! Pool Bar serves delicious lunches and very good service. Peppers bar at the front of the hotel is really very trendy, lovely decking area and serves great cocktails. they also show any sporting/ TV events on a large screen. Indoor bar was fairly quiet and they do put on evening entertainment at the outdoor Pool area although in May not many interested in this.
eating out was really great in the resort. Hotel is good location for loads of lovely restaurants and bars although we really avoided the crazy part of the Square near bedrock you will know what i mean when you go there! Golden Arrow across the road is good place for a drink ( Charlie the owner friendly guy) We visited Clarabels across the road ( Great Flambe Steaks) and castelli across the road, An italian up in the square Plazzo Bianco ( 5 min walk up the hill) Limelight and Sage on our last night. Sage is excellent, they have a jazz Player, Liquid bar next door is nice for pre dinner drink. Hotel owns the Mexican next door didnt go but heard it was very good.
I just loved the Hotel!! If anyone needs any more info let me know!!
Have just returned after having a fantastic holiday in Aya Napa. The Napa Plaza hotel definitely surpassed all expectations.....in fact I would say that the web site does not do it justice. The hotel was in an excellent location and although it is quite near to the busy area where all the pubs and clubs are it was very quiet (surprisingly enough). We were on a B&B basis and the selection for breakfast was excellent, something to suit everyone from cooked breakfast to fruit and pastries etc. Would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of holidaying in Aya Napa.
Fantastic Stay at the Napa Plaza
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week's stay in Cyprus at the Napa Plaza hotel - to out it simply, it was fantastic. The hotel surpassed all of our expectations, as did Ayia Napa (I had been slightly wary about this area of Cyprus following less favourable TV footage) - however, it was lovely and all of the restaurants we visted were well priced and served good quality food. There are also plenty of bars and clubs to suite all tastes.
The Napa Plaza hotel is first class - with excellent customer service and very pleasant and friendly staff, who speak excellent English. We will definitely be returning for another visit.
Doesn't respond to emails
I wanted to stay here and booked via the companies' website, however they failed to confirm the booking or respond to any of the numerous emails that I sent.
Apalling customer relations.
Super Napa Plaza
Just spent 7 nights at the Plaza having booked on the advise given on this sight. All reviews were spot on. Stayed in a pool view room with a double bed that could have slept a family of 4! Room was spotlessly clean with fair sized bathroom and shower, plenty of room for clothes, small table with 2 chairs and balcony with 2 chairs and table. Breakfast served in Cloisters restaurant had plenty of choice with bacon eggs etc, continental and cakes and fresh fruit. As it is served buffet style some of the food is only just about warm. There is a bar by the pool for drinks and snacks which are freshly prepared but like all things mediterranian, be prepared to wait. The hotel pool and surrounding area is just so relaxing and especially so in the evening when it is all lit up. Bliss! I have to disagree with other reviews but I found the water OK, once you take the initial plunge. The hotel also has a bar outside by the street called Peppers where you can sit in comfy chairs in the evening. The bar in the hotel by reception I found a little to cold looking where there is this strange architecteral circle with pebbles at the bottom which makes you stand there thinking - whats this! All the staff were friendly and helpful and keen to please especially the reception girls. The mini market on site has a very limited choice of goods but with plenty of shops close by the choice is yours. My only disappointment were the gym facilities. The indoor pool is very small and the gym equipment was old and in some cases rusty. The hotel is in an excellent location. Theme pubs a 10 minute walk to the left and the harbour and beach 10 minute walk to the right and restaurants and bars aplenty along the way. Overall this hotel is well worth a stay and we would definetly go back again. Round and about Clarabells opposite is a wonderful treat ( try the kleftiko) and if you just want a pub meal try The Golden Arrow next door - but watch those portions!! The Square pub by the monastery is perfect for just sitting and watching the world go by. One poor meal we had was at Markos fish restaurant by the harbour. Fish and chips comes with cabbage, carrots, rice and salad and looks awful, but dont worry the cats wondering round the restaurant will eat it. Ayia Napa at this time of year is quite and the weather takes a time to get going. It can get cold and windy in the evening so take a good jumper. Still we came away relaxed and tanned and look forward to going back again.
Loved the Napa Plaza
We stayed here for 5 nights during October before moving on to Adams Beach hotel to attend a wedding.
Very impressed with the way the hotel has been updated in a contempory style. Everywhere was kept spotlessly clean; also found the beds to be very comfortable. All the staff were very friendly. A good breakfast is served with plenty of choice, one of the best meals we had in the evenings was in a restaurant called Blueberries, serving very good steaks.
Only dissappointment was the ice cold swimming pool, but I think a heated pool in Cyprus is rare.
Would definately stay here again.
Superb Napa Plaza!
We have just returned from staying in the Napa Plaza, Ayia Napa, Cyprus. This hotel has just had a comtemporary face-lift and is superb throughout.Rooms are stylish and very comfortable and have ensuite attached.The bars serve a good variety of drinks and snacks and the resturant is modern and very clean.The breakfast served by the hotel is very good and provides a huge range of selection.The hotel pool is excellent if a little (ice) cold! It has plenty of free sunloungers and a shaded area for those needing respite from the sun.
Despite being situated a two minute walk from the main square, where all the pubs and clubs are situated, the hotel is not much bothered by the noise from this area. However, on Sundays the faithful are called to prayer from 0600 until about 0900 by a priest on a PA system to rival Anfield's from the nearby church!
The hotel has attached to it several bars, resturants and opening shortly a pattisserie. This will be an excellent addition to the hotel. You will recieve a 15% discount from El Chihuahua mexican resturant, but we found the service to be poor and there are no seperate smoking and non-smoking areas. Highly recommended is Clarabel's resturant opposite the hotel.There are many good eateries within walking distance of the hotel in the main street and located in the harbour area.
You are advised to take some warmer clothes for the evenings, as they can be a little chilly, what with the sea breezes.
Overall this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in in Europe.We will stay here again if we visit Cyprus
Just returned from what i can only describe as a fantastic holiday in every way.
The hotel is lovely right in the centre where all the bars clubs restuarants are but never once did we find this hotel noisy. The staff work very long hours and are always friendly and helpful, Our room had a pool view which was really nice and was spacious and clean, we hired a kettle from reception and when the porter fetched it for us it came complete with tea, coffee, milk, a bowl of fruit and a bottle of red wine althought the porter was surprised we didnt actually want to drink it at that moment, being only 8am was a tad too early for even us.....just
Breakfast had brilliant choices for every national cheeses hams breads bacon tomatoes sausages and 4 different varietys of eggs every day. The pool bar serves delicious food all day and has a vast menu, The pool area had plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds and getting one was never a problem. If you ask at reception they give you a towel card which you exchange for beach towels which is a great idea and saves having to bring towels with you, we didnt find this out til 3 days before we left so we had our towels already with us. The entertainment team work hard day and night.
Ayia Napa itself is just great and has something for all ages not just the young ones,
Three restuarants which were especcialy worth a visit were Castelli which served good fish dishes and Clarabel were you get a steak to die for both are just across the road from the hotel be prepared to wait for a table though but they really are worth the wait also Taste of India which is up the road near to the square served a great curry.
One Restaurant in particular which served a really cold tasteless meal was called The Odin it is set back off the main road opposite the hotel and down the side of Pizza hut near the Macronossos taxi rank. Meal prices i thought were very reasonable starters main course bottle of wine, water and coffees came to 23Cyp for 2 and this was in one of the more classier restaurants.
We hired a car for two days a Toyota corolla 50Cyp... word of advice though dont book one through your rep the prices are three times what they charge you in the resort, we then visted Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos, We went up the Troodos mountains and to be honest not only was it cold up there but i really dont know what all the fuss is about, although there was a stall up there selling honey coated nuts and these were just delicious.
I had heard all the bad reviews about Ayia Napa and was a bit doubtful til we got there although to be fair i probably wouldnt like the resort so much in very high season.
We only went for a week and could quite easily have stayed longer, We look forward to a return visit.
What a great place to stay
This hotel has been totally refurbished,everything is new, it is absolutely spotless, we were only b&b but the restaraunt was full most nights. staff are about the friendliest we've met. plenty of sun loungers at the pool, towels are supplied. air conditioning in room is exellent, there is also a hair dryer. you are right in the middle of the resort close to all the good eateries and the beach is just down the road. we will definetly be going back to this hotel.
