The apartment was very well situated within easy reach of town centre, market and local shops. Only downside for us was, having a small child, the Air Conditioning - these are in the two bedrooms where ceiling fans are also fitted (one in double bedroom wasnt working). The AC units are on timers of 15mins, 30mins or 60mins - just a tad annoying when the fan wasnt working and having to get out of bed numerous times throughout the night to restart the AC. I purchased two floor fans to assist with cooling the rooms down. We had a wonderful time regardless.
We were pleased with our stay. The apartment was comfortable for the four of us staying there. It was handy for the harbor and local bars and restaurants. If we were coming back to Kato Paphos, we would be happy to stay there again.

The apartment itself is nice. There were a few minor niggles such as the fan in the main bedroom not working, the shower was only just functional (combination of shower head being very blocked and low water pressure), some of the fittings are loose and there were quite a few cockroaches. On the plus side, the air conditioning worked well and it is located in a nice quiet area with a good bar facility 50m away and a small Kiosk 200m.
Our major issue was the fact that upon trying to use the Hilltop Gardens pool facilities as advertised, we were told that we were not welcome as the owner of the apartment has not paid their bill so basically we had no pool for the week. This was a MASSIVE disappointment, and most inconvenient in the heat. It also made me and my partner feel like criminals. Hilltop Gardens were fair, but would not let us use the faculties.
In short, I would recommend this apartment if the pool situation is sorted out.

We had a great time apartment was as described, only couldn't get the Cable TV to work - King Odeyey bar was very handy. You must try San Marino Restaurant the set menu had a great choice, food was 1st class and great value for money. Would definitely recommend to others and hopefully we will be back. 10/10p.s would recommend a visit to Adonis Baths but a white-knuckle ride drive there and don't believe them when they say "suitable for cars "!John,Stephanie,Tania+Adam Kennedy - Scotland 16/8/09
