We have just got back from a 1 week stay in the Azia Beach Hotel, Paphos and would definately recommend it. We stayed in a club junior suite which was very clean and nicely decorated (as in the hotel website pictures - No deception). As soon as we arrived we had to check out the georgous seaview from the balcony, which was very peaceful as it is away from the pool area.
The Air conditioning was very good, keeping the room at just the right temperature, we even had to turn it down later in the week, as we got more used to the heat.
The only problem I had with the room was that there was no plug socket near the mirror. However I asked the engineer for an extension lead and within 10 mins 1 ...
was in our room. The room was cleaned every morning and the maids came round again in the evening to turn the bed down and leave more shampoo etc...Read More
It wasnt only the rooms that were clean, the pool was cleaned every day, while we ate breakfast and the public areas and gardens were immaculate.
We were only bed & breakfast at the hotel, with which there was lots to choose, ranging from cold meats and cheese to a full fry-up with plenty of fresh bread and rolls. If you want toast, it is best to get that first, as the conveyor belt toaster was a little slow. The only other meal we had in the hotel was a carvery buffet, which was really good, especially eating outside by the pool. We thought that 14.50CYP per head was very reasonable and the chefs were very generous with the food.
We also ate at the pool bar which was nice, with food ranging from salads to burgers and chips. The swim-up bar was very refreshing and the staff were very friendly, a really nice touch!
Although on first arrival the hotel seemed a bit far from anything, most places are easy to get to. There are 2 bus stops just outside the hotel, one over the road which goes to the harbour and the other, on the same side, goes to Coral Bay. All bus rides, no matter how far you travel, are 70 cents. We did hire a car for four days and found that the driving in cyprus wasnt as bad as we had heard, quite civil in fact.
There are a few restaurants right next door to the hotel, along with a pub and a cocktail bar. Then down Tomb of the Kings road on the way to the harbour, there a lots more restaurants. Fat Mamas and Sisyfos roof Restaurant, were favourites of ours as the food was lovely and was excellent value for money.
The evening entertainment was quite good. There was 3 or 4 people which we saw maybe twice during the week, each very different. But if you wanted more nightlife then barstreet is only a cab ride away, costing approximately
