Aqua Sol Holiday Village
Travel Blogs from Paphos
Late morning. We set off on our next part of our journey. Paris to Paphos. Our flight with Cyprus Air was great... Smooth as and had a fantastic view of the many scattered Greek Islands as we headed towards Cyprus into Larnaca International airport. Kriton and Laura were there to pick us up and drive us to Paphos. There is an awesome highway straight through Larnaca and ...
Ah, cobble stones (you know how I feel about footings), seaside, roads, infrastructure and long lunches...welcome to civilisation...welcome to Paphos, Cyprus! Now don't get me wrong I enjoy as much as the next person some cheap brightly colored ceramics and some blingy tinny bangles but it becomes a little tedious and the lack of appropriate supermarkets also becomes frustrating in an Arab country, so imagine my delight at entering the EU! Plus I known I can buy a glass of rosť at ...
... Once you have survived the passing of the cart you are left in the trail and waft of the over powering stench exuding from the horse that had hurtled past. It is a mix of horse, sweat, manure and dust and it can lingers longer than the heady scent of Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds! A combination of this smell and the hazards of what may be under foot materialise as I begin climbing the ancient steps built and carved into the rocky cliffs of the ...
... over lots of hills and mountains to get there, and the views were gorgeous. When we arrived we walked up into the hills to find the baths which were also very beautiful - there was a large pool with a waterfall and lots of long hanging vines; it was straight out of a Disney film! We also walked a bit further up the hill to get the views of the coast and the sea. We saw lots of massive lizards basking in the sun, some were as big as those you can buy as pets! At the bottom of ...
... would stand-in for me. There were tears, hugging along with many questions. In vain I tried making them follow the lesson. They could not concentrate, so half an hour later I told them that it was the Joke of the Day and suddenly I saw happy faces with peals of laughter.
So enjoy the photos and mini-video clips of the festivities that took place out here.

Historical Traveler Reviews Aqua Sol Holiday Village Paphos
Ignore the Critics, trust me!
Myself and 6 others stayed at the Aqua Sol Village and after reading all the bad reports, i can only say some people are VERY hard to please!!!
This Aparthotel is fantastic. Has everything you could ask for, the food is real nice and the people there!! Well they are just so nice its unreal, couldn't do enough. One thing i would suggest.....DO NOT FLY WITH MY TRAVEL! They are the worst airline ive ever flown with ill stick with Thomson's in future.
The hill at the Aqua Sol can be tiring, but you can ring taxi's which collect you at the hotel so you won't have to walk it, plus i found the taxi's ever so cheap! So as my title says ignore the critics, it is fantasic and i will definitely be back there again.
For the price of this holiday you can do better, search around.The pool at the resort is not big enough for the amount of apartments and people it caters for and there is lack of sunbeds - set the alarm for 7am and go down and do the towel thing if you want a bed - every one else does!.The pool got very dirty very quickly and was cleaned twice in two weeks! My husband caught a chronic ear infection caused, by diagnosis from the Cypriot Doctor, from a dirty pool.We were without water for 9 hours one day so no showers and no flushing the toilet- imagine that!
We stayed self catering at the Aquasol in June 05 and was very pleased with its location and the standard of apartments. Its nicely tucked out of the way from the Croal Bay high street, which is a little tacky although not offensive by any means. The apartments are clean and basic which is all you really want on a beach holiday. You got a good selection of cutlery, crockery and glasses so you could eat in the apartments if you wanted to.
Great last minute deal
Aqua Sol Village set in lovely surroundings.
Apartments basic, but clean. Great views out to sea although our apartment overlooked a tree!
Pool nice and clean, but sometimes not enough sunbeds - mostly British people put towels on beds early in the morning!
Nice restraunts near by we ate out every night in the village. Food at hotel great. Would recommend for families....
My wife and I had just returned from a family holiday in Lanzarote and wanted a break away from the kids and terrible half board food, so got a four day cheapy (£99) to Pathos, as we had never experienced Cyprus before.
me and my girlfriend stayed there for the last week in april. a bit quite but good for sitting by the pool and relaxing. if any1 wants to know anything about the aqua sol village then feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. we are both 21 years old
Returned home yesterday morning having spent 14 days at the Aquasol tourist village. I booked with Airtours and flew with MyTravel airways who, quite frankly, were the worst airline I have ever flown with. First of all we had to weigh our hand luggage at Birmingham, and although the combined hand luggage weight was well under, we still had to move stuff around. The flight out wasnt too bad, for a budget airline, although if you're anything other than Hobbit size you will be bashing your knees, but thats the same with most airlines, though for some reason this one just felt smaller! On the way back we had a night flight. A WORD OF CAUTION - MYTRAVEL AIRLINES DO NOT CARRY PILLOWS/BLANKETS FOR NIGHT FLIGHTS. Not handy when you have two small children. and the TV "screen" didnt work, so take some onboard entertainment.
Excellent Value for Money - A great Time
We stayed at the Aqua Sol Village in Coral Bay, Pathos, Cyprus for two weeks last September.
We did a last minute purchase and paid around £350 for two weeks self catering.
The reviews noted a steep hill in the front of the hotel. This is true and can be heavy work BUT it was good excersise and really you did not need to leave the hotel. They had a great pool bar and excellent entertainment.
I think this hotel is great value for money. Clean rooms which were very spacious. Friendly staff and a lovely view out to see from the sun loungers...
Coral Bay is a beautiful area. I will return again soon.
Having only just returned from this holiday, I would like to say that our room was very comfortable for our weeks stay. We were on the lower floor and had rather a lot of very tall trees and bushes outside our balcony which blocked our view of the sea! We self catered and found a good place to eat each night in the stretch known as Coral Bay. The hill leading up from the Aquasol village was gradual but hard going especially in the midday heat. the Childrens/Adults entertainment was well organised but if you don't like that sort of thing, it did not finish until at least 11.45 each evening. Even though we were given what was considered a 'quiet' room we were a part of what was going on even though we were not there!
we spent 2 weeks her on our honeymoon almost 3 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also brought back an unexpected souveneir as we now have a 2 year old daughter, so Aphrodite worked her charm!
