Hotel Avlida Hotel 4 star

Tombs of the Kings Avenue Paphos CY, 8201, Cyprus Pafos, Cyprus -

Amy Adejokun Section editor

Apart from its excellent location, close to the lively town centre of Paphos, the area's main cultural and archaeological sites, and a variety of shops, it has to be said that the Avlida has little appeal, despite the 4 star rating it so proudly displays at the entrance to its car park. The building itself is soulless, the guest rooms outdated, and some of the facilities have certainly seen better days. Realistically, the only redeeming feature is the pleasant welcome you'll receive.

    Location 4.77 /10

    The Avlida is very close to the tourist centre of Paphos, around 1 mi away, and if you fancy taking a stroll, there are various little shops selling local specialities in the vicinity of the hotel. Paphos airport is about a 15 minute drive away, whilst Larnaca airport is some 84 mi away, with a transfer time of around an hour and a half. The area's finest archaeological sites, such as the Tombs of the Kings and the Roman ruins and their superb mosaics, are also close-by.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    Just like the facilities at the hotel (which was built in 1990 and renovated in 2003), the 193 guest rooms, as well as the corridors, are worn and only just clean, whilst the decor is very ordinary and characterless. Standard rooms include a tiny satellite television set, a radio (broadcasting 4 stations), a direct international telephone line, individual air conditioning, a mini bar, a mini refrigerator for a supplement, a balcony furnished with armchairs and tables and a hair-dryer. Welcome toiletries are provided in the (small) bathrooms, room service is available during the day from 10:00am to 10:00pm, and safe deposit boxes are available (for a fee) at reception.

    Overview 5.45 /10

    The resort itself is ideal, though the location of the Avlida is just average, alongside a rather busy main road and surrounded by high-rise buildings, meaning that your views from your sun lounger around the pool will be restricted and the neighbours will certainly get an eyeful! The building itself is rather basic, large and repetitive, each of its balconies identical to the last, and the entrance to the hotel is rather old-fashioned, with an ancient galley ship (the emblem of the hotel) made of stone, set right in the middle of a pool. The airy and rather bright marble-paved lobby houses a dark wooden bar, the shape of which is reminiscent of the inside of an ancient galleon.
    The swimming pool is average sized and parasols and deck chairs are provided. It does have to be said, however, that the setting isn't the nicest - to one side stands a high wall which more or less conceals the neighbouring buildings, whilst to the other you'll find a covered area housing a bar and a games area (although the video games were out of order during our visit). Outside you find a children's pool with water slides. Overlooking the pool there is also a small water park area complete with jacuzzi and waterfalls, which would have been really lovely had it not been neglected (you can't even tell whether it's in the process of being renovated or not!), whilst on the basement level you'll find a fitness centre consisting of a gym, sauna, hammam and whirlpool bath.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The two restaurants at the Avlida serve local and international cuisine in the buffet style for both breakfast and dinner. They are adequately stocked and of average quality. Theme nights are also held and often include folklore shows or musical entertainment. As the hotel operates on an all-inclusive basis, guests can also enjoy a hot or cold snack at the poolside or on the terrace at any time of the day, or perhaps relax with a cup of tea in the Tea Lounge Bar, though there are two other bars here, one inside and one outside.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    The beach is 250 m from the hotel, across a major public road so be prepared for it to get rather busy. The sand is of average quality and there are a few rocks about, but the water itself is superb and very clear. There is also an independent water sports club nearby.

      The Dionysos is a small hotel similar to a family pension located in the heart of Paphos port. This place will satisfy those seeking a simple and smaller hotel complex offering more privacy and a good level of comfort.

      This hotel is a great choice because of its leisure facilities: lawn areas, a good-sized swimming pool, small golden sandy beach (rare in Paphos). This hotel is recommended for a week's stay with a foot in the water.

      It is not the best hotel of this class in Paphos, but its location on the sea and near downtown allows you to walk around in high season enjoying the legendary Cypriot sun, without any concern for transportation once you are in the area.

The clients come here mainly for the peaceful atmosphere. This is possible also because there are not too many kids.

      • Value for money 6.95
      • Location 9.61

      The Aquamare Beach was built in 2006 and draws all of its charm from its somewhat quaint and old-fashioned decor. It offers a high degree of luxury for the price of a 4 star establishment (by local standards), building its reputation on giving great attention to detail, every millimetre carefully thought out. Everything is designed to make your stay as enjoyable as possible... The only thing is you will have to try and ignore the air traffic flying above, which can get quite noisy.

      • Location 4.24

      The Pafian Sun Holiday Village is a lovely place for a holiday. Designed as a small Mediterranean village with soft-lined facades and terracotta roof tiles, it offers small but remarkably well equipped apartments, with all the necessary amenities and services. Children are welcome and everybody here is greeted in a most friendly way. We would not recommend it to sea-bathing aficionados however, who risk twisting an ankle on their way to the beach alone.

      • Location 9.92

      The Aqua Sol Holiday Village only offers accommodation in apartments, which come equipped with a kitchen area. Its location makes it a good option for families who want to enjoy the sun and sea air. Plus, the all-inclusive formula means you will need to spend virtually nothing once you're here. One negative point is that the beach here is covered with pebbles and refuse brought in by the sea. Couples and guests who like to have plenty to do will quickly become bored as there isn't a large amount of activities on offer.

      A warm welcome, impeccable service, entertainment and amusement, good cuisine, varied activities, and a prime location by the sea: such are the offerings of the St George Hotel, arguably one of the best 4 star establishments in the region. It's the perfect place for golfers, with the superb courses of Minthis Hills and Secret valley 11 mi and 17 mi away respectively. If you're not so keen on golfing, you can always enjoy a nice drink on the terrace or indulge in a divine massage at the Sen Spa.

      Here you have a modern hotel, but with a family clientele - an establishment where you can choose accommodations according to the size you require - (there are so many different types); the rooms of this seaside hotel do not all have a balcony. The Almyra hotel is unclassified; you should try it to get an idea of what that really means.

      The Alexander the Great Beach Hotel stands on the coast in Paphos and belongs to the Kanika hotel group, owner to several other hotels in Cyprus: Limassol and Ayia Napa in particular. It is 'reasonably' luxurious, blending together traditional Greek art and a more contemporary style, which caters for all age groups, especially since it was entirely renovated in 2010. Children are also welcome here, the hotel even having a leisure club available just for them.
