... doing so.
Of course, this was only a single meze experience, and we have no idea of knowing where the guidebook author had theirs - perhaps it was up in the mountains where portions are much larger and more varied, or maybe it was with a massive group of people, resulting in far more food being served. No matter what, tonight's meal was a still a good one, though we can never quite experience a true meze with just the two of ...
Here's a brief Greek language lesson for you - there are a number of short nature trails in and around Kalopanayiotis that Maria had pointed out to us last night, and on one of these trails leading to an old windmill, the path was lined with fruit trees - you could find apples, grapes, peaches, and pomegranates hanging from the branches, and most of the fruit was ripe enough to eat. As we marched along the trail, we marveled at both ...
... driving through the back roads of Troodos in our embarrassing little car, slowly making our way to Kalopanayiotis, the final destination for the evening. Along the way, we stopped for a nice lunch in a quaint little village, and picked up a few bottles of excellent wine from the Ayia Mavri winery, after a brief tour and tasting with the lovely owner of the winery ... but then things got downright comical!
Finding our accommodation ...
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 Paphian Park Tourist Village Paphos
Lovely part of the world
Went to Cyprus for a wedding and as we did not know the area stayed in the Paphian Park Tourist village. A little out of the way so needed taxis to the town, harbour or coral bay £5 each way but there was 7 of us so this was not bad. Could have walked for 10 - 15 minutes to the bus stop for 80p but weather was too hot. Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. very clean and friendly. Very short walk to the beach(not sandy). Food was fine though towards the end of the week became a little monotonous as all inclusives do.
First time I have been all inclusive and felt the effects of the drinks!!!!
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Have a good time.
We enjoyed our holiday
We stayed at the Pathion Park in April ,having read previous comments we were very concerned.STOP! hey your on holiday.Ok its not perfect but its morethan accecptable, the room was very good clean .TIP towel replacement is poor catch your room cleaner slip her a few pounds it works wonders.The food, no problem plenty of choice three meals aday.Drinks on all inc.yes I AGREE their pretty bad mainly the shorts.buy abottle for your room.The entertainment although the team tried very hard its total rubbish.You dont have to live in the hotel 24/7 hire a car Cyprus is a wonderful place.Would we go back to the same hotel again? Yes.september I hope.
After reading the reviews was very apprehensive of staying at this hotel, but thought we would try it out on a half board basis only for a week in mid October.
My wife and I arrived at the "hotel" at about 5 in the morning to be greeted by a Group 4 security guy who was standing in as a receptionist, his knowledge of English is limited to say the least, to arrange air conditiong in the room took over an hour!! On finally getting to the room after having to carry our cases around the pool and down a few alleys we found that it was dusty, stale smelling and generally grubby (we learnt later that "maid service" was limited and on 2 days a week non-existant). For what was sold to us as a 4* hotel it was a great dissapointment. Breakfasts were a very poor quality, they seem to think that quantity is more important (we stuck to toast). Dinner was equally horrendous and, for the most part, inedible. Thank God we were on only a half board basis and could get edible food outside of the hotel.Needless to say we ate out most of the time, at our own expence! We raised this matter with our Rep and were simply handed a complaint form to complete, as he was leaving about 3 days after our holiday his committment level was not the highest! This has got to be the worst holiday experience of ouir lives.
Just got back from the Pafian Park after 10 days of trials and tribulations with the hotel. We enjoyed Cyprus itself and managed to have a good holiday. The hotel, however, was quite simply awful. Our first room was damp and musty and the reception staff extremely rude. We did manage to change rooms (after 4 days) although the new room had pools of water, dodgy electrics and was randomly cleaned. The staff at reception were awful and never once acted on our complaints. The food was also very bland and seemingly recycled, the fruit was not cleaned and the drinks all watered down.
Got back last week from pafion park and what a disapointment. we were half board but after trying the evening meal 4 times we decided to eat out. When you book for half board you dont expect to eat out but after complaining to the restaurant manager, our only other option was to make the most of our holiday and skip the evening meal. The rooms were dirty and hardly spotted any maids for the two week and after they had been in the rooms, i still did not work out what had been done.
Just got back from hols on 10th August. There were three of us including an 11 year old boy. We have been on all inclusive holidays before but never to Cyprus.
I stayed at the Pafian Park for a week in July with my partner. We were given a beautiful sea view one bedroomed apartment with kitchen, fridge etc. even though we were there on an all inclusive basis.
