Paphian Park Tourist Village
Travel Blogs from Paphos
Justyna and the boys arrived on Friday and on Saturday Gordon and Margaret arrived so that's the villa full.
Our other guests Andy & Denice arrived yesterday as well, they have rented a villa a few kilometers away.
Everyone came over for drinks and a polish meal, we sat talking until the early hours even though tomorrow is another busy day but I think everyone had a good time.
Today all three of us headed to Paphos for a bit of sightseeing, the weather is really lovely, if not too hot, we're not complaining as we all left the UK rain. We went to see the guy about sound gear which we got for a really reasonable price.
We visited the Tomb of the Kings, a lot of underground ruins with sarcophagie, not really my thing, but apart from the weather not much else to do seemingly.
... br> sound equipment but we got a lead from a taxi driver and Bruce sorted
out what we need, we'll pick it up tomorrow, not much rest for the
Spent the day chatting with Judy, sunbathing by the pool and relaxing.
In the evening we went to a local restaurant and had a lovely Cypriot meal, the salads here are fantastic, so much better than the boring British ones.
All in all a wonderful, glorious day.
... good evening with good company, good food, weird music and even more weird chair-top dancing. Not too many plates were broken.
I got chosen to participate (oh humiliation!) but was good fun and I need to lose weight to get into my dress :-)
I asked one of the musicians where t could hire some sound equipment, so we have a lead on this,in Paphos, we will check this out tomorrow when we pick up Judyata at Paphos airport.
... we've got for our money.
Villa is of very high standard with 4 bedrooms (ours is the only one en-suite), 2 bathrooms and a huge living-come-dining area. Decoration and furnishings are very good and the pool is lovely.
Charlie and Margaret phoned, they have rented a villa closer to Pilos than ours, we will catch up with them tomorrow at lunch.

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.
