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.
... we went across the road to have lunch, well Judyata and I had lunch, Bruce
had the all-day English breakfast. (What's the difference from and English and Scottish one you may ask?) How would I know I'm from Poland.
We had a walk around the shops in Paphos, bought the obligatory fridge magnets and headed back to the the villa for a snack and poolside drinks.
All in all another wonderful, but tiring ...
Judyata my bridesmaid arrived last night, she and I worked and lived
together in Exeter after I arrived in the UK, she is also directly
responsible for Bruce and I getting together, so needless to say she's
my best friend and Bruce loves her to bits.
We went to city hall
today to get the license and pay the fees, then headed off to Paphos to
check out the hire of sound equipment for the wedding. No luck ...
Yesterday we met up with Annia our wedding planner, to go across the outstanding arrangements, I won't bore you with the details. Later we had lunch with Charlie and Margaret at a seafront restaurant on Latsi beach.
Today we did a bit of sightseeing, wandered around Polis, checked that the bank card worked, a must after the recent horror stories over here. In the evening we went to a Greek night near Polis with Charlie & ...
Woken up to glorious weather this morning, standing on the balcony we can see the Agean absolutely beautiful, breathtaking in fact, what a wonderful start.

Historical Traveler Reviews Paphos Gardens Holiday Resort
this holiday was the best holiday i have ever had! it is great for all ages. there are lots of restaurants near to the hotel including a great cyprus one and an indians. the hotel itself is very clean and presentable. the staff are very kind, sociable and not at all rude like you may find elsewere. there are two tennis courts which are well-kept. the entertainment team were great there was water games through the day and a kids disco at night then adult and children entertainment later on. very funny stuff especially the hypnotist! haha i can deffinately say i will be visting paphos gardens next year. what a brilliant holiday!!
By far the best holiday me and my family have had, we stayed in azala 201 the room was huge and fully air conditioned in all three rooms. There were plenty of restarants around the resort, the beach, market place and waterpark were close. Entertaiment in the day and night was brilliant, the animation team were friendly and allways had games to play not only for the children but also for the adults such as water aerobics, water vollyball and polo. Evening entertaiment was excellent with the animation teams putting on shows such as grease and saturday night fever and encouraging everyone to play along with games.
Room - 10/10
hotel staff - 9/10
pool area 9/10
entertainment team 10/10
overall holiday - brilliant!

The Paphos gardens hotel is a great hotel for families with children from babies to teenagers. There is an in-house entertainment team who organise team games in the pool morning and afternoon, a kiddies club, early evening quiz, toddlers disco every evening...good entertainment for all the family. It can be very noisy and boisterous so if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time don't go there! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel room we were allocated was fairly dated but visited every day by the maid and cleaned often. We stayed B&B only - the breakfast was OK, plenty of cereals, bread, toast, beans, fruit, coffee, tea, juice, etc etc etc.
We spent a week ending 22nd May 2005 at the Paphos Gardens Complex staying in room 210 Mimosa Apartments.
we arrived back one week ago after a six day stay. Having booked a superior one bedroomed apartment, we were allocated on arrival a two bedroomed apartment in Jasmine block. It was very satisfactory, very clean and well appointed. No complaints whatsoever. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only complaint, which you cannot blame the hotel complex for was the nightly incessant barking of a pack of dogs a little distance away. Guard dogs somewhere quite possibly but certainly loud enough to be very intrusive. You could also hear them during the day.
Would go again
A great location, some apartments very tired - ask for a superior one and pay the difference. Fantastic entertainment for all. Great on site shop and pools were fine.
Lots of stray cats beware!
Would stay here again as the location was so good. Eat at ZaZa's and Les Amis.
Cyprus is generally very expensive and we preffered the Canaries. Paphos is a bit too english for us.
Great weather in October though.
Full on entertainment
The hotel itself is very pleasant, however you do need to be aware that it has full on 24/7 entertainment - practically!
Kids clubs - pool games
nightly fun - usually starts at 6 with a quiz followed by karaoke (bad) or a band(bad) or a football match on tv or a kids disco etc etc etc.
And low and behold if you want a quiet night, esp if your balcony faces the pool/ entertainment area! Or is even on the 1st floor mezzanine level - over the reception -where they all gather upon their return from 'Town'.
However it's a good base and the beach isn't too far away - although that gets very full of noisy locals too! Good luck or take ear plugs!!
My husband and I have just returned from the Paphos Gardens Apartments. We were there for a week from 1 Dec to 8 Dec. We stayed in room 102 Jasmine. This was a newly refurbished two bedroomed apartment. It was clean, towels and sheets changed every day. We hired a car and had a great week. This apartment is quite central and is within easy walking distance of the triangle and also Kato Paphos. We didn't have any difficulty getting a safety deposit box and the staff were really helpful. We had two early morning calls, as requested. I would recommend these apartments to anyone and was glad I stayed there.
