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 ...
... 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 Tasmaria Hotel Apts. Paphos
Brilliant Stay October 06
Having read reviews after booking two female friends went with open mind. Were pleased from the start that we had booked Tasmaria. Although the apartments are basic everything was clean and well kept with maid service on a daily basis. The bar and pool area spotless and the Island Blue restaurant attached to Tasmaria always served delicious food and beverages. All the staff were friendly and helpful and never seemed put out to help. We ventured into Paphos every night after eating in one of the many Tavernas locally or to find a Taverna by the harbour once back at the Tasmaria the bar was always a welcoming sight and stayed open until everyone had gone to bed. We couldn't find fault at all with Tasmaria which only added to the wonderful holiday that we had in Paphos.
Hi everybody Dave & Sue here we have just returned from cyprus Sept.17th -25th 2006 staying at the Tasmaria Apartments. Having read reviews thought we might have made the wrong choice. However we were pleasantly surprised. The apartment was much larger than we expected. The pool area was pleasant with a pool bar were you could get snacks throughout the day. The apartments had there own restaurant or just across the road was Fat Mamma's which we would highly reccomend serving the best steak we've ever had. Nikolia the barman was a really nice chap who worked 16hrs 7 days a week .. although set on the main road the apartments and the pool area were very peaceful and relaxing. So much so that we have arranged with other holidaymakers we met to return the same time next year for 2 weeks instead of 1.
We are two women friends who try to take a holiday together once a year; we stayed at the Tasmaria in June 2006 and it is the worst place we have ever stayed.
I would just like to say for those who have thought that people posting reviews about the bad beds at the Tasmaria should consider that there are alot more rooms to stay in and not just the one they did. Obviously not ALL the beds are going to be uncomfortable but i can guarantee they did not have room 204! Myself and my grand-parents, both in their 60's, found these beds EXTREMELY uncomfortable, springy and without clean bed linen. I can agree that the complex is lovely and clean, but i can't say the same for the beds. Because of the beds my Grandad couldn't enjoy his holiday due to getting a stiff neck and back from the beds and my Gran only had about 3 nights sleep in the 2 weeks we were there!
On complaining about these beds, we were given an extra matress to put on top of the one we already had. Unfortunately, it was the same as the first matress, well passed the sell by date because every time you moved, springs were sticking into hips and back.....in fact all over the body. The matress its self was torn, as well as being stained. Blankets and pillows also had to be changed due to being stained aswell. When i came to make the bed one morning i found a bug crawling in the sheets....one which could not have flown through a window and had never been seen before so again we had to have the sheets changed!
I spent a week in the Tasmaria in May 2006 and really enjoyed the stay. The apartments are very basic but very comfortable, including the beds, and were cleaned daily. I would recommend the barbeque if offered, the food was fantastic and served in the restaurant.
The pool bar offers great food and the we spent a fortune on the pool tables.
The hotel was ideally situated with loads of restaurants and bars nearby. I would recomment Tramps for a drink, very friendly staff, and Fat Mama's for food.
Although the rooms are basic I would definitely rate it higher than 2.5 *.
I've just come back from the Tasmaria apartments in Cyprus and I couldn't recommend a better place to stay if your looking for cheap, comfortable and clean apartments. The apartments are fairly basic, they have cooker, fridge etc but most importantly are kept very clean (the maid service cleaned our room everyday) and are comfortable. I had no problems with the beds. Weather was brilliant but it played havoc with my bats wings! The pool area and restaurant are excellent, food was very nice and reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful and friendly.The pool is a decent size and was never to busy. The group I was with attended the BBQ night at the hotel restaurant and I can honestly say the meat served was the nicest I have ever tasted! The apartments are situated literally a stone's throw away from the main bars and restaurants on Tomb's of the King's Road. The best pub in Paphos though is Tramps Bar which is directly next door to the apartments, the Geordie barman Martin will keep the drinks flowing for you and best of all he put all of Newcastle's games on the big screen!! Fat Mama's restaurant 2 minutes up the road is well worth a visit as well.
We have just literally come back from a great holiday in paphos where we stayed at the Tasmaria.
We had only a 1 week at the Tasmaria in Paphos - that is our only regret! I could have stayed much longer.
We visited the Tasmaria Apartments in Nov 2005. The beds were so uncomfortable, that we moved hotels - at our own expense! You could feel the springs through the mattresses, and I didn't sleep at all.
I asked for blankets - to put on top of the mattress - and they were stinking of cigarettes and covered in hairs! Otherwise the apartment has everything you could need. Two single beds - no doubles at all - a fully equiped kitchen, and a spacious lounge with balcony.
