Constantinou Bros Hotel Visit - Cyprus

Sarah Smith on 02 August 2021
Constantinou Bros Athena Beach Hotel sent me an invite to visit them (how kind!) would be rude to refuse!

I stayed in an Elite Class Superior sea view room with balcony.... What a room on the 5th floor with a full sea view right in the middle of the hotel facing out to sea!! and breathe! Our package comes with a bottle of wine on arrival in your room, VIP check in, prosecco at reception whilst checking in, bathrobes and slippers, late check out, late breakfast each morning, and some rooms even have a cabana on the beach! Our balcony is huge! Two sunbeds, an umbrella and a dining table outside...am I dreaming?! Can't wait for the sunsets. Feeling very spoilt right now and extremely grateful after the 'Covid years', plus the Keo beer is flowing ice cold on draught.

Paphos: Last night we had a wander up the coastal path towards Paphos, watching the sky change colour and the sun set was truly special and a reminder why I have missed being away. We picked a taverna attached to the 5* Almyra for food. Lamb chops, village potatoes, feta and tomato salad, pitta bread, baklava and poached pear... Washed down with an ice cold Keo of course. Moonlit and candle lit. Very romantic!

Athena Royal Hotel: Quick visit to the 4* Athena Royal Hotel this morning. Closed currently but a favourite with the older clientele in the winter and with the temperature around 20? at Christmas I can see why. Three bowling greens and two large ballroom halls used for dance groups and bridge events, it's got its place in the market. No matter what season, many many repeat guests return here, the staff are fabulous for remembering the needs and preferences of returning guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending the beautiful suites here. Highly recommended: After a beachy kinda Saturday, followed by another lovely sunset, it was time to research local restaurants close to the hotel. Definitely not disappointed with the recommendation from another Travel Counsellor to try Ficardo Mediterranean restaurant. Lovely modern restaurant with lovely ambience. The umbrellas that are featured on all photos and reviews have gone from the ceiling, but the food and service were excellent. Highly recommended. The oldest Taverna in Paphos: Another night, another sunset, another Cypriot meal in Paphos. This time we ventured more into the harbour area where it was much busier and much more like August in Cyprus!! We went back to the oldest taverna in Paphos that we'd been to a few years ago, a favourite with locals and tourists alike. Stuffed again! Final Night: Last night tonight and it's my favourite! GREEK NIGHT. Goodnight from Paphos..... I will return.
