Paphos Traveller
We love Paphos, we have been there more than 10 times. The beaches are nice and there are always things to do and see if you fancy a little bit of driving.
In Paphos as I send this. We are staying near Kato Pathos a short walk from Bar street which is what we wanted. Shame that as we walk from the villa there are empty shops, The white hart pub, open but no guests. Followed by a large club-casino which proved to be the first of many closed dilapidated clubs/cafes and bars that fill the area. So many have gone to the wall.Speaking to the wonderful locals seems to think the all inclusive resorts deals have taken the majority of custom away.Beware listings of live entertainment as several have closed down, and 1 we made a point of visiting. were open, no Elvis show apparent so I asked-was told yes, join us take a seat, 2 rounds later I asked again, "Oh he had an operation and wont be here this week", no Elvis at Evis then today. With any listing-check if traveling. Enjoy yourholiday though because weare.
