... not that we are really complaining about that, as we were more than satiated after tonight's experience. I suppose we also can't overly fault the guidebook for recommending that diners should take it easy during the meze - though the sheer volume of food was nowhere near what was described, there definitely is a possibility of over stuffing yourself to the point of discomfort, but following the guidebook's advice, we managed ...

Just a real tourist day, visiting the mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion and Orpheus in 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 Venus Beach Hotel Paphos
Not up to standard
Just got back from staying at Venus Beach Hotel Paphos. Since having our wedding in Paphos we thought we would treat ourselves to 5 star. The facilities in the hotel were ok but the rooms were more like a 3 star which was really disappointing. The staff were quite unhelpful and not very friendly.
Our wedding was lovely but the hotel let our holiday down. Would definitly not recommend this hotel if you want a bit of luxury.
Just returned from a week at the Venus beach Hotel our first trip to Cyprus, was a bit apprehensive after reading other reviews but was pleasently surprised on arrival, arrived at 3am due to flight delay!!! check in was quick and efficient even opened the mini bar for us in case we needed a drink and advised us as we had missed our evening meal we could have our lunch on our last day (first time we had ever been offered this) The room was a good size and wardrobe space more than adequate, i agree bathroom was a tad small but still large enough to do what you have too! The food was of a good standard but not a great choice, the Flambe night food was excellant although you have to pay an extra 9 cyp if you are HB but felt it was worth it. On the whole agree that it is certainly not a 5* hotel compared to the Annabelle and Alexander the Great ,but was definately not disappointed, great location and sun beds in abundance ( well spaced, a pet hate of mine is uniformed rows!) spotlessly clean and staff friendly, weather fantastic, Would i go back? Probably.
Firstly I can confirm what most others have said - this is not what most UK residents would class as a 5 star hotel - think 3/4 star. The good points first - if you want a quiet, peaceful holiday in a superb location right on the sea then this will suit. Just beyond the pool area and directly overlooking the sea there are numerous sun loungers ( but well spaced out ) on well maintained grassed areas with several large palm trees dotted around for extra shade - very easy to spend all day there ! The pool area is a bit busier but again well maintained and the pool is a good size and perfect temperature. We were half board and we found the food at dinner to be of good quality and plenty of choice - also the buffet breakfast was excellent - you could fill up and save on buying lunch ! Staff were generally pleasant and helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean and the air conditioning very effective. Public areas were spacious with lots of comfortable sofas and tables. Good gym and 2 tennis courts for the more energetic.
We returned to the Venus Beach with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews in this site, but were delighted with what we found.
We stayed at the venus beach in jan/feb for 3 weeks, and i am wondering if we are talking about the same hotel as some of the other holidaymakers.
Three good weeks in Pafos
We have just got back from 3 weeks at the Venus Beach Hotel. You will go a long way to find a hotel with such friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is spacious and the indoor swimming pool warm, with good quality towels provided. The position of the hotel, next to the Tombs of the Kings, provided one of the best views we have ever had from a side hotel bedroom. We were on half board and the food was of a good standard. I thoroughly recommend this hotel for your holiday.
I can't believe we were staying in the same hotel as the previous negatives - not only just staying, but staying at the SAME TIME!!
This hotel needs a shake-up in a number of vital areas.
We booked this on the internet. We were looking for Wintersun, and a place for children and this came up on our search.
Just got back from a week in this hotel (Oct 04), which overall is great value for money. The facilities were execellent, great pool area with lots of sun beds to soak up the cyprus sun. The towels are also provided to put on the beds, so no worries about how your case is going to smell by the end of the week! There was something going on every day around the pool area, intro to scuba, waterobics, yoga etc and you can walk straight down to the sea from the property, though there is no beach to speak of just rocks.
