Another legend says that if you swim around the rock three times under a full moon, you'll find true love.

Great apartment, great location 10/10

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Sofilia apartments. The apartment itself is spacious and well equipped with everything you need for your stay. The complex is great with such friendly staff at the King Odysseus bar where you can get cheap food and drinks. The pool area is lovely and clean, it was really quiet most days too. Location wise this was perfect for us, 10 min walk to Lidl and the main road where you can get the bus into Paphos or Coral Bay. We will definitely stay at the apartments again.

Clean comfortable Apartment in Convenient Area

  • 4 of 5

Our flight was late, so we arrived around midnight. The girl at the bar helped us settle in. The apartment is very clean, modern. The main room and bedrooms have aircon, which needs to be reset every hour. The location is quiet. We had the pool to ourselves every day. We only ate at the bar one day, which was breakfast, tasty and cheap.

The owner, Mark, knows about the issue we had which was a bathroom light not working and was in constant contact about it, though it didn't get sorted until the last two nights, which was a shame. We could then see that the bathroom was clean and modern too!

Only a couple of points which would have made the stay even better; The pillows are poor, with hardly any filling. We both have 2 full at home, so it was a bit of a culture shock. However, we did enjoy goods nights sleeps mostly. We could have done with some more kitchen utensils. Most people might have eaten out, but being on a budget, we ate in a lot. It could do with a casserole and a couple of deeper pans. The kitchen had a lovely fridge and modern cooker. The location is ideal for dropping on the main coast road and although in an area that looks a little run down, suited us fine for being away from the hussle and bustle of the town. The little supermarket nearby is well stocked and the Lidl is only a 3 minute drive. Tomb of the Kings is about 4 mins (a must see. I've left a guide book in the apartment. Do take it with you and go early to avoid heat!)

If you like to keep in touch food wise with England, there is McDonalds near and Pizza Hut in the Kings Mall. Both are far far better than the Uk in both choice and value. There is also KFC, which was a little disappointing.

If you prefer local cuisine, we tried Gustosos, just past Lidl on same side. Incredible food,, quantity and service. Great value for money too.

We would highly recommend heading about 6k up the coast to the See You Beach Bar. A chilled laid back place, right on the beach. Again, good food and service. 5 Euro a bed, under shade, or 2.5 euro a chair, with 2.5 Euro a parasol. Be extremely careful with the sea. It's lovely and you must go in, but the waves are big and strong. Its an experience. there are also lifeguards there.

All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and if we were coming back to Cyprus, I would return to Mark's apartment. Despite the light issue and the nit picks, it had everything we wanted in the right place.

Perfect accommodation in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing holiday. The accommodation was clean, tidy, homely and had everything you needed and more. We had a beautiful view of the sea and the sunset coming down from the balcony. The staff there couldn't have been more helpful, especially Marina. Nothing was ever too much hassle and they all greeted us and our kids like we were family.

We were able to explore Cyprus and found it very easy to travel around via bus and car hire.

It was honestly the most stress free holiday we have ever had (and we have 3 kids!) and i can only thank the owners Mark and Sofia for organising all the taxi transfers, advice of car hire and amazing accommodation for that. We will definitely be asking to hire this apartment again and would most definitely recommend this property to all my friends and family.

Everything from booking to flying home went smoothly! Great communication with Mark before, during and after holiday! Mark arranged a taxi for our arrival and departure which cost 40 euros each way! The apartment was lovely and clean on arrival, very spacious and modern, the a/c and fans were a god send as it was very hot during our stay! Marina(the bar owner) showed us around on arrival and explained how things worked and where things were, she is a very friendly lady and nothing is too much trouble for her, we arrived quite late and she invited us to the bar on site for something to eat and drink, even though the bar stopped serving food at 11pm she prepared a meal for us! The pool is very clean and has plenty of loungers and parasols, the bar is reasonably priced, the food is good too! There was entertainment on a couple of nights, aswell as a pool table, dart board and pc if you want to use it, you can get WiFi too! We hired a car for 4 days and visited the Aphrodite water park, Troodos Mountains, Adonis Bath and Agios Georgios beach, the local bus service is frequent and cheap to use to visit Paphos Harbour and Coral Bay! A short walk from the complex and you'll find lots of restaurants and bars, check out Karlinas, food is very nice and the staff are really friendly! All in all we had a fantastic time and are definitely booking again soon! Thanks to Mark for the use of your beautiful apartment, our holiday was amazing, my husband, 3 young kids and myself had a fab holiday X

Peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

Found everything as described. The apartment was clean and tidy and there is plenty of contact from owners. The staff in the onsite bar are very helpful and the food is of a very good standard.

The bus service is very good and cheap so Coral Bay and Paphos are easily accessible and bus stop about 5 mins walk away.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday in a nice apartment and the added bonus we virtually had the place to ourselves so no worries about the pool beds.

Car: not necessary

This fantastic holiday rental accommodation is ideally located in the Tomb of the Kings area of Paphos Cyprus. This holiday accommodation is walking distance to a 24 hr supermarket, local shops, bakery, tavernas, bars and restaurants. The holiday apartment is less than 5 minutes from a bus stop. The number 15 bus runs every 15 minutes to Paphos old town with its designer souvenir shops & Paphos Harbour with its fishing port & tourist areas. Not forgetting the fantastic night life; whether it’s a quiet meal in one of the many restaurants or a big night out on the busy bar street. The bus also takes tourists to Coral Bay in Cyprus with its lovely beach, bars and tavernas. About 1/2 mile from the holiday apartment you will find the Tombs of the Kings. The Tombs are burial caves carved into the bedrock of a hill and decorated with Doric columns and capitals, dating from the 4th century BC. It is not necessary to hire a car although it would be an advantage to discover Cyprus's beauty.

Other Activities: go kart, largest water park in Cyprus, historic sites
