Historical Traveler Reviews Pavlo Napa Beach Hotel Ayia Napa
Fantasic Holiday and Great Hotel!!! Highly Recommended
I have just recently come back from a week all inclusive at the Hotel Pavlo Napa. I have to say i didnt want to leave.
The hotel location couldnt have been any better, you just walk straight from the pool area straight onto one of the nicest beaches in Cyprus. The pool was very clean and there was always spare sun beds so it doesnt matter if you werent the first down to reserve one.
The food was lovely and had a wide variety of different foods every day. The staff were very helpful and couldnt do any more. Also Adam the Thomas Cook Holiday Rep was very nice.
The rooms were really clean, spacious and we had a really nice view overlooking the beach.
We went to Larnaca Market which was really interesting and had a ride on a Camel which is a must!
Overall i have to say this is one of the best holidays i have ever been on and would definately recommend it to anyone. Ayia Nappa is about 20 mins walk but there are also bars and restaurants on the way if you fancy the quieter life.
I can't wait to book again, hopefully very soon.
Wasn't what I expected for 4 star rating
My partner and I visited the Pavlo Napa Hotel in May 06.
In my opinion the hotel is very over-rated... there is no way I would ever give this hotel a 4 star rating.... I would be hard pushed to give it 3 stars.
The food in the main dining room wasn't upto much.... athough the food at the pool bar was very nice.
I tend to agree with an earlier post on this site the rooms are like what you would find at a travel lodge... needless to say I would never book to stay at this hotel again.
But please don't let me put anyone off... you must go to form your own opinion.
Loved it want to go back in 2006
we stayed at the pavlo napa in feb absolutly fantastic bar staff great cannot do enough for you. clean rooms, in general the hootel is clean. there is alot of german's that stay in the hotel. pool and gym ffantassic can go on forever about this hotel it is absolutly amazing suitable for all ages if you go to this hotel go tto nissi beach best beach ini cyprus lovely
The position of this hotel next to an excellent beach could not be faulted.
We found the staff to be the best and friendliest people we have encountered at any hotel, nothing was too much trouble and we felt that they made our ten days stay memorable and will be looking forward to staying again soon.
2nd year in a row at this hotel. cant wait till next year
We stayed in the Pavlo Napa on the 14th of September for 2 weeks. This is the 2nd year staying here and thought a few things were even better than last year. The staff as usual were great, rooms really clean, food and drink in the all inclusive is excellent (until you get home and cant fit into any of your clothes!). Our 5 year old loved the kids club with Anna, Arne and Sara always having something for her to do.
Arne always had plenty going on around the pool area during the day and at night the entertainment was typical hotel things.
Our party consisted of 4 adults from 36-59 years and 1 5 year old and its the kind of hotel that does suit every age group. Lots of repeat customers we met a 70 year old lady who had been there last year at the same time as us and this year was her 7th time in the hotel! That says it all.
The Thomas Cook rep in the hotel was great. she was always round the pool talking to all her guests.
If you are looking for a good, relaxing beach/all inclusive break with friendly staff, good food, great location make your next holiday the Pavlo Napa. I work for Thomas Cook and have sent loads of folk out to the hotel and everyone loves it. Just ignore the comments loaded on a few weeks ago about the hotel being similar to a Travel lodge - some folk just like to moan.! Hopefully he'll go back to his Travel lodge next year.
A 1970`s 3*
just returned after a week at the above hotel. The hotel is now a little dated and is s cross between a travel lodge (no disrespect to travel lodge) and Butlins. Not a holiday for peace and quiet. It is full of Russians and Germans so not one for the faint hearted at meal times bar times ot anything that means queing,
Having said all that, we could not fault the staff or the location set right on the beach with nice easy access even for disabled people. Towels were changed every day and bed linen every other day. The food if a little bland was plentiful and hot Certainly not a 4 * hotel. I personally would not stay there again
I have just returned from a week in The Pavlo Napa with a friend of mine, we're in out 20's and loved it!
The weather was fantastic, not a cloud in the sky the whole week, the food was brilliant there was always something on offer for all different tastes, from soups, salads, hot foods, fruit, puddings and ice cream.
There was always room around the pool and it's so close to the beach which is also beautiful. There was watersports avaliable by the beach - definately worth having a go. The rooms are nice and big with nice bathrooms and fab air conditioning. The hotel is quite large and is sort of split so we had a bit of a mission to our room but onces we'd found the short cuts and lifts it was fine.
There are activities on offer during the day your normal, aqua aerobics, water polo, volleyball and a kids club.
As for night life the hotel had evening entertainment every evening some nights better than others but always something to do or watch. Outside the hotel you can walk straight into a number of bars with karaoke and different singers Robbie, Kylie, Frank Sinatra lookalikes, drag queens, dancers. Very entertaining! Inbetween there are some restaurants and if you want more keep walking into Ayia Napa, it's about 30 mins slow walk or a very cheap taxi ride. Saying that it's not really loud everywhere you go, there is certainly something for everyone of all ages.
I would definately go back - Enjoy!
Best hol we have had
Pavlo napa is wonderful, the decoration is a little tired for a four star property but that is the only thing that could possibly let this hotel down. I could be a little biased as i was married during my stay there in 2003. The location was great near enough to ayia nappa town centre if you wanted the hustle and bustle, but not near enough to hear it if you didnt, very clean, peaceful, and just that wonderful safe relaxed feeling that you want on holiday. All the staff were very attentive and the hotel manager really couldent do enough for you, the food was of the highest standard, and the main restraunt didnt have that dinner cue feeling you sometimes get with all inc, daytime food was served at the pool snack bar and had a varied menu to choose from and was cooked fresh for you, the local larger was really nice, there were allways sunbeds even if you were not an early riser, we were lucky when we went ther were some lovely couples and famalies there some of wich were still in touch with, the atmosphere at night in the bar was great but after 12 the hotel staff made sure any noise was kept inside the bar so it was so peaceful when you went back to your room.
Nissi beach is georgous & very clean, the boat trips are good value for money & the trip to Anitas Point is an absolute must, im not usually that intrested in history but the events leading up to the turkish invasion and the ghost town of Famagusta are unbelivable you really feel for the Cypriot people (i fell in love with cyprus so much i really didnt want to come home) were planning to go back there next year and wouldent even consider staying anywhere but the Pavlo Nappa if you like to feel safe abroad, and enjoy a mix of tranquillity and memorable late nights, comfofort and fine food and wine and good company this is definately THE resort and THE hotel for you.
Loved Pavlo Napa
I have just returned from 2 fab weeks at the Pavlo Napa Hotel!. There were 6 in my party (all couples, ages from 18 - 40 ). We all throughly enjoyed our holiday. Staff at htl were lovely and the service they gave was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had no trouble getting a sunlounger by the pool, even though we are not early risers!!. But if you do miss out the beach is excellent (v.safe for kids as water is not of high level and is warm) and sunloungers there are 5 cyp£ for 2, for all day. Watersports also avail.
The food was of an excellent standard, with lots of variety, something for everyone. Waiter service in tiffany restaurant (men no shorts allowed!!) and at poolside restaurant was brill!! No complaints!!. Outside pool was very clean and warm. Main entertainer "Arnie" worked really hard, lots of organised activities, in and around the pool, for all the family.
Rooms were spacious, (for couples, but families of 4 may feel squashed!), clean and comfortable. Our room was overlooking main road where there are 2 bars open till 2am, although we didnt find this a problem, families with young children may find noise from traffic and bars a problem. If you are like us and enjoy nightlife, evening entertainment at Pavlo was hit and miss, Monday nts were great (disco night with Nick, gets everyone involved) and Sunday nt with Charlie as Frank Sinatra was fab! If you dont fancy doing the 20 min walk into Ayia Napa every night, the Karystos (just across rd from Pavlo) is a fab night out. Rodger the compere was very funny and got everyone to join in!.
Waterpark is about 2 ml up rd (taxi for 6 cost us 6 cyp £), def worth a visit (15 cyp £ entrance fee). Really enjoyed this although, if you can eat before you get there as food was v. expensive and you cant take in packed lunch (they check your bags before entering).
We have never been to Cyprus before and absolutley loved it!!. So much so we didnt want to go home!! We will definately be going again to Pavlo Napa Hotel!
The food in this hotel is just terrible. It's pub food of below average quality. Could hardly expect it from a 4-star Mediterranean hotel. The worse food we had during our stay in Cyprus (even in comparison with a canteen in a water park nearby).
If you are up to staying in Sandy Bay choose Tasia Maris Sands instead. It's a recently built 3-star whose perfect sea view is up to 20% cheaper than questionable side sea view at Pavlo Napa (the rooms themselves are better as well).
How do I know about Tasia Maris Sands? Having paid for SSV BB we were not satisfied with our road view room for some reason. After two nights were transferred to Tasia Maris Sands (3 min away) with upgrade to AI in Pavlo Napa.
Final neutral points: Pavlo Napa is overwhelmed by British couples and families (with inclusions of Russians, Germans, French, Polish, Romanians and some others whose language I can't identify) with animation close to none (at least in terms of quality). On the other hand, Tasia Maris Sands is absolutely quiet hotel with no unwanted interaction with anybody (except reception and restaurant/bar stuff).
Very last point (just recalled): no view over the beach from restaurant/bar/pool areas of Tasia Maris Sands b/c of bushy fence.

... in the UK but still very good. Decided on chicken fried rice for supper so did a bit of preparation so just need to thro the ingredients together into the wok later. Mrs Fox will have a few bones later if she pops round. Late afternoon and a stroll to the pool, again I was the only one there so no interrupting the 20 lengths in what was a very warm bath. Goats and shepherd have not been around for a few days now so maybe the weather is just to hot even for them, ...
... went to bed!!!! All in a days' work.
Now I am in a place that is so different to where I have been for the last few days. It’s normal. You can go to a café and have a beer, wear shorts and a singlet, the temperature is a nice 30 degrees and the people are normal and very relaxed ( Greek style living). The only thing the same are the costs. No backpacker places so you are forced into a hotel which is always more expensive and ...
... thro a number of dusty villages past Ercan airport. A quick pit stop in Erolku supermarket to pick up some candle holders Sarah had spotted a few weeks ago and a couple of other items to replenish the food cupboard. Home by 4:30pm for a nice cup of tea and a relax. Sarah and John prepared tonights chilli supper whilst our guests went off for a late afternoon stroll. Showered and changed we retired to the back patio to continue ...
... with vendors selling local delicacies and all kinds of touristy products, but there are also competitions taking place, sailing races, local exhibitions of pottery, fireworks and much more.
Personally noise and crowded areas is not my piece of cake, but at least before flying back home I dropped by for a while just to get the feeling ...
Rang airport. Located my suitcase in *****ia. And will deliver evening. How it hit there will never know especially seein It was right next to Vince?s when it got checked in. After breck we took off in the car. We went to Larnaka and saw the salt lakes. Searched for the aqueducts. Only found 1 out of three despite out best effort to locate them all. Stopped and had lunch. Bought a phone charger and adapter. Cost 27 eu as all my chargers are in my suitcase and ...
