We had a fantastic stay here and the house was clean and well decorated. Home from home, although a bbq would have been a welcome addition. We would definitely suggest hiring a car and we used the recommmended car hire company who picked us up from airport which saved us finding the property in the dark late at night! Hoping to return at some point in the future!

We had a fantastic holiday in Platanos 1, St Nicholas Resort. The two storey house was beautiful, clean and well fitted out. It was lovely being right next to the pool and the private roof terrace was an added bonus. The whole complex was stunning – excellent value for money and we hope to return again next year!
Stayed Wednesday 23 March 2011
Property was above expectations - very well furnished with everything you might ever need down to even childrens books and DVDs and light and roomy house - the roof terrace and balcony are really nice features. Location is quiet and safe for kids - a few miles out of Paphos town itself so a car is definitely required. 4 nice outdoor pools including a toddlers pool, but in March these are still a bit cool to use. The indoor pool was out of use when we visited due to the management company requiring a part - am sure this will be fixed in time for the busy season starting April. All in all a nice development and the owner goes well out of his way to making your stay welcome - even down to extending our stay when we needed to change our flight home. Highly recommend and will hopefully stay again some time.

From the beginning to end, the ease of booking the holiday, our arrival at the airport with the recommended car hire company, the location of the townhouse, the accommodation and standard of cleaniness (I am a clean freak) exceeded our expectation. Situated between Pafos and Coral Bay, which for us was ideal for the beaches, harbour, bars and restaurants. Platanos 1 is well furnished and equiped, we did not want for anything, for the first week it was as if we had our own private pool - which is literally a few steps from the terrace, the develpoment is just big enough and has a small friendly bar, restaurant and a shop that stocks all the essentails. We were a party of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, 16 & 18, there was something for everyone, recommended restaurants for the kids: Fat Mamma`s, best Meze was at Georges Tavern on Seven St. We had never visited Cyprus before and have come away planning our next visit. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!
Stayed Sunday 25 July 2010
The property is right next to the pool so you dont have to go far for a drink. It has all you need for a pleasant stay, fully fitted kitchen, Sky TV, AC in all rooms which is a must in the height of summer. You need a car to get about from the complex as its just outside Paphos, but there are plenty of reasonably priced car hire providers.
Stayed Saturday 24 April 2010
The property is in a very good position, just far enough from the restaurant, main pool etc. The smaller pool outside the property was perfect and lovely and warm. The quality of the furniture was far superior than that of your usual holiday let. A real home from home!
Stayed Wednesday 05 August 2009
The apartment was very well fitted out and the location right next to the pool was great. The on site facilities were good and the restaurant food was ok. The little shop could have been better stocked and we would have preferred to be nearer the beach - overall though we were very impressed - wish we could have stayed longer than one week. Maybe next time ?
Stayed Monday 15 June 2009
Fantastic property in a wonderful complex. If you go early or late in the season youll probably have the place to yourself - we did. The apartment was very well equipped and maintained and in an excellent position within the complex. Easy access to Paphos and district but a car is essential. Well worth the money. Would recommend this for a relaxing holiday".
Stayed Wednesday 01 March 2006
Absolutely thrilled with the villa- every little detail thought of. Very high standard of accomodation and cleanliness. It was a pleasant well kept complex and the pool was right outside our villa which was ideal as we have two children. It was hot outside, so we needed to use the air con but only for a very short time as the rooms soon cooled once on. This was by far the best standard of accomodation we have ever stayed in. We would definately like to book again next year.
Stayed Wednesday 01 March 2006
Fantastic Property, we had the pool outside the property to ourselves for the whole week, the villa is equipped with everything you need for your stay and more! the only negatives are the on site Restaurant for evening meals (daytime snacks were fine) and the location, a car is a MUST!
Stayed Wednesday 01 March 2006
Wonderfull and clean place. Perfect location at the small pool. This house has such a privacy in a big compound. Very good location close to paphos and the coral bay. Even you find a very pleasant restaurant in walking distance. The restaurant in the compound we also can recommend. The compound himself is very clean and nice done. There were not to many people even we stayed in july/august 2009. Thanks a lot that we had the chance to stay in this perfect house!
A very nice house with plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Being next to the pool is very handy as well. Bathrooms are a bit on the small side and the showers are a snug fit. And there are lots of stairs, which we didnt mind but others might. The complex has very good facilities and generally has a nice feel, although the grounds could do with a little more attention as they looked a little scruffy in places. The location is not bad either - Chlorakas is just a short walk away but for everything else a car is a must. Nice beaches and Paphos itself are just a short drive away and you can get on to the motorway in about 5 mins so access around the island is good. Overall we enjoyed the house and would rate it as good value, but wouldnt describe it as luxury based on other places we have stayed. This wouldnt stop us recommending it to others though.
Bonjour, Nous sommes restés 15 jours dans la maison... clim de mes filles ne fonctionnait pas, jen ai fais part au bureau mais rien... elles ont dû dormir dans le canapé du salon. Nous avons été envahis de fourmies partout, donc on nettoyait plusieurs fois par jours... A notre arrivée à la résidence St Nicolas, le réceptionniste navait pas de réservation à notre nom, surprise, mais comme tout était bien organisé, un taxi nous attendait et nous a conduit dans un hotel 4*(même si nous avions loué 1 voiture à laéroport!!) notre chambre était prête, ils nous ont sorti le grand le lendemain matin, autre surprise lorsquil a fallu payer lhotel+le taxi+le ptit déj... Durant toute la durée du séjour, jai passé mon temps à réclamer le remboursement, mais rien...Aujourdhui encore... je pense quil faut se méfier, Nous pensions être en Tunisie !! Mauvaise organisation, pas de communication entre lAngleterre et Cyprus... Et ce nest pas de leur faute, non jamais. Lété prochain, nous retournons à Chypre avec plus de monde, mais surtout pas dans ces résidences ou avec "Rentalsystem" Dommage Mister Simon........................
Excellent property in a good location on a very nice development with a choice of pools. Only slight downdside is that the Sky TV does not work in the evenings due to atmospheric conditions. We really enjoyed our week at this property.
Owner reply:

Thank you for your review. Sky TV is no longer available in Cyprus. We have therefore replaced the Sky System with Nilesat. This is an excellent alternative with much clearer picture. It doesn’t fade or break up like Sky used to. Currently Nilesat broadcasts 600 TV channels, having sports, kids, family, news, education, entertainment, documentary, music, movies and drama.

the house was well equipped and in a very quite location. excellent house for kids since the pool was just next to it. the instruction to the house was excellent and made it very easy to find it. the key system was a very good idea and helpful. i will definitely recommend this house to my friends and family.
Our second time at Platanos - but hopefully not our last! The property is beautiful: I would say "home from home" but my homes not as good as this! Certainly you really need a car, but both times weve hired from the dealer recommended on the site and have been more than happy. Four of us stayed for a week - two adults with two teenage children - and everyone had plenty of "me" space. Again, like last year, we more or less had the small pool to ourselves and it was great. When we did go up to the clubhouse (pristine) or the big pool however, it was disappointing to see a few groups of people sitting drinking bottles of lager around the pool. Apart from the risk of broken glass, some of these groups did get a bit loud. We saw none of this last year - I wouldnt like to see it become the norm.
Dear Simon, The stay was very good and the property was very good indeed. We had a good holiday. It seemed car is essential in Cyprus anyway so it was not a problem where we took the apartment. The only issue with the house was the internet. It just didnt work 99% of the time even though I took a new username password from Ropak. I could check my mail for 2 secs and after that it stops to work so I had to go to internet cafes to do some of the things. I hope this can be looked into and corrected. Apart from internet, everything else was fantastic. Thanks a lot again for your help all the time. Thanks Akshat
Owner reply:

We have looked into the internet access with the provider and I can confirm the issues have now been resolved.

A wonderful, well presented Villa on a marvellous well maintained complex. I would strongly recommend this particular Villa to families with children as the pool is right on your door step. The benefits of the courtesy welcome pack, the Sky Package and the free wireless broadband added the extra value that you would not normally receive at other villas. Thanks again, Andy,Lies, Megan and Luke
We arrived late at night and was welcomed with a welcome pack which was a nice surprise. house was exactly what we had seen on the website (Please hire a car it is a 40 min walk to pathos harbour ). All in all a lovely property , a lovely complex , a lovely holiday . We would definately book again!!!
The owners of this property obviously thought of everything. The booking and payment went very smoothly and all instructions very clear. The complex itself was a little far from everything and we feel the hire of a car is necessary however it was close enough to both paphos harbour and coral bay by car It was clean and everything was in good condition. The kitchen was very well equipped. The only negative point was the size of the bathroom and in particular the shower in both rooms. A lovely property which is on a very nice complex which has a reasonably priced restaurant and snack bar. Would definitely consider booking through holiday rentals again
We found the property homely and well equipped with all appliances that we needed during our stay. The complex is of a high standard and will be superb when finished. The road on entry was a bit dodgy but as we were leaving was being resurfaced. Overall would definitely come back and definitely recommend.
A lovely property, finished to a high standard. The on-site facilities were good, lots of space and the 4 pools were very pleasant.
What a fantastic property and in a wonderful complex. The apartment was very well equipped and in an excellent position within the complex. Easy access to Paphos and district but a car is essential. Well worth the money. Would recommend this for a relaxing holiday
