This was our first stay at these apartments after staying in various hotels throughout Paphos over many years. It was picked after reading some good reviews and the location and it didn't... more

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Athenaeum Holiday apartments and have had a lovely, lovely time. The hosts Helen and Alvin are absolutely wonderful and they ensure that your stay is enjoyable and memorable. They are there if you need them but are very unobtrusive to ensure that your privacy is not invaded.
The apartments are extremely well equiped and they are in a very central position. Bars and restaurants are easily accessible within a 5 minute walk.
We have holidayed in Paphos for over 20 years and we have stayed in a lot of different accommodations and I would definately rate the Athenaeum as one of the very best.
We have booked again for another 2 weeks in September and quite frankly we cannot wait to return.
While we were there we enjoyed some lovely meals at Grazie, Argo and the First and Last pub. Although we had heard people say that the prices were expensive this year, we found that the prices were reasonable.

Based just a short walk from central Paphos and its amenities our 1 bed apartment was furnished to a high standard with modern facilities such as ceramic hob, American style fridge freezer and automatic washing. machine. A comprehensive range of channels can be accessed via the plasma television. Our helpful unobtrusive hosts Helen and Alvin are lovely people and nothing was too much trouble for them. We found the pack explaining how to use the various electronic equipment very useful. As it is a very small complex the pool is never overcrowded and indeed on some days we were the only people using it. Comfortable sunbeds are provided. We have visited Cyprus numerous times and these are the best apartments we have stayed in and offer excellent value for money. We found our stay a totally relaxing and enjoyable experience and have already booked for next year.
Thank you for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
