Finding somewhere to stay for a few days and relax in Paphos, Cyprus? The Azia Resort and Spa is a good choice for a quick break, anything longer than a week and you may find yourself very bored. This would be the same for Paphos itself.
Somewhere to relax, sunbathe and do nothing, this is a perfect place. The moment we arrived at the airport it was a 30-40 minute drive to hotel where we were organised shared transportation for this. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly person to help with our luggage and check in.
We decided to go for a sea view room, which had a great view and balcony. It was a good time to go, just before Summer holidays and before the start of the peak Summer season. It would have been nicer with a higher room to see more of the sea view, rather than on the 1st/2nd floor where we get the majority of the trees and pool view.
As we were on half board, we had our lunch OR evening meals provided per day and had to pay for our own drinks during the day. The service at the restaurants were good and there was a variety of choice each day with a different theme night. We did notice that every night there was a lot of vegetables and salad. As with majority of buffet food, there was a major lack of quality due to mass production. The adult/couples only section gave you a great view of the sunset adding that romantic feel to your dinner.
Everything in the hotel regarding extra food and drink was expensive (best off going full board). With such a wide space of rooms we did notice that the WiFi was extremely poor, getting signal and losing signal every few minutes. The best signal we noticed was either in the lobby or by the poolside, any further out of the hotel and you will lose signal. The Spa had a good range of treatments, but this comes at a steep price. If you can afford the treatments then I would say it is nice to make use of it and relax.
The area has very little activity, having to go to town via a bus ride (which was only a few euros). Only a couple of decent restaurants in the area it did not surprise us that we may have been better off with a full board option. Overall it is a nice place to just relax and not think about anything.
