Nice 3* Hotel
Posted Sep 22, 2013
The Aqua Sol Hotel is a lovely 3* hotel (definitely not a 4*) suitable for families rather than couples. No pool towels supplied and not allowed to take room towels down to the pools, although they have a huge water park and 2 other separate pool areas! The poolside café serves poor quality snack food (with chips), however the main restaurant usually served something fairly nice to choose from at lunch and dinner, but the desserts were the same every day. The wine wasn't drinkable which was a shame, as the local restaurants and bars 10 minutes up the road served really nice Cypriot wines. Cocktails and juices at the hotel were really sweet, but my husband was able to drink the local and imported beers.
The rooms were very spacious, but a bit dated and in need of an upgrade, however the staff were really lovely and always made you feel that nothing was an effort for them. The entertainment wasn't for couples, so we did venture out 50% of our week's holiday to bars up the road. The hotel was in a very good position, within walking distance to lovely Coral Bay, and near to bus stops into the Paphos Harbour area. The hotel beach was very rocky and hardly anyone swam in the sea.
Overall we had a good time at the Aqua Sol, as we bought and chilled our own wine outside the hotel, as well as went out to local bars.
The entertainment team worked really hard running keep-fit exercises, volleyball, boules games during the day and entertaining the children in the evening.
