We are looking for a 5 star luxury hotel with spa for Cyprus next year. The area is also very important to us. Does anyone have any suggestions/information as to which area would be best, Paphos or Limassol. We want to treat ourselves to a little luxury with nice surroundings.

"I preferred Limassol, but I'm not bothered about luxury. Paphos would suit you better. But give Limmasol a visit."
groovymaude :
"Limassol is a port, the area around your hotel may be OK, but don't expect much, there's a 2 lane road (won't call it a dual carriageway) runs directly in front of all the 5* hotels Paphos is busy but more picturesque, if you're looking fo a spa, try looking in areas like Poteras and Polis, I'm sure they've built a lot more since we lived there. (3 years in Akrotiri nr Limassol!)"

"I've been to Paphos and it was the best holiday I ever had - though it is getting more commercial year after year. I stayed in a fantastic hotel called the 'Avanti' (4 star) and I would have no hesitation in going back there! I had friends who stayed in 'Aloe' hotel at the same time (also 4 star) but that wasn't quite as nice as Avanti"
tappetytap :
"I think Paphos would definitely be more to your liking if you're going for a luxury, pull-out-all-the-stops type vacation. Limassol is a port city and while it is BEAUTIFUL, I think you'd definitely be happier staying in Paphos. Be sure you get out to do LOTS of exploring, though. :)"
E.S.Kimo :
"Paphos, but do make sure that you see the mountains and the north of the island. I would hire a car, local transport can be a bit...errr..Cypriot. Best of luck, it's a fantastic place to holiday, good food, friendly natives, great scenery. And they drive on the left, what more could you want?"

"Don't go to either! You need to go to Polis/Latchi which is 40 mins from Paphos and stay at the Anassa - gorgeous spa, amazing food and setting on the beautiful unspoilt Akamas peninsula. If you're into walking/cycling/outdoors even better. The area is far removed from the tourist traps of Limassol and Paphos...yes I'm biased because I live in the Polis area. See below for more information on the hotel"

We are going on a cruise that stops in Limassol Cyprus for a day and are looking to go snorkeling while there. Any information on snorkel tours in the area would be appreciated

"Larnaca is 45 minutes from Limassol and they have the most exciting diving in Cyprus. They have a sunken ship called Zenovia. If you search for it you will find a lot of info about it"

Cyprus villa in Limassol or even a discount Cyprus apartment actually increases in value recent years, however they are still well priced and a great investment. In town you will find Marks & Spencers, Debenhams and even a Mothercare store.

Interesting note about the central market in the last para. Will investigate when next there.
