My husband Demetrius and I stayed for 3 nights in mid March 2011 at the 4 star Theo Sunset Bay Holiday Village near Paphos on the west coast of Cyprus, booked through hotels4u. The price was £45 per night for two guests in a one bedroom sea view apartment on half board.

The apartments were set in attractive gardens. Our apartment was the upper left in a block of four.

Our one bed apartment was a good size with a very comfortable double bed. The kitchen was well enough equipped with 2 gas rings, a microwave oven/grill, fridge, toaster and kettle. As we were on half board, we only used the kettle and fridge.
The interior of the apartments was a little bit drab with the brown curtains and bedspread and dark wood furniture. Some lighter, more colourful soft furnishings would really cheer up the apartment. We found that the wardrobe was too small.

It’s quite unusual to get a double bed as we often end up with two single beds pushed together on our travels.

We paid extra for a sea view apartment. The balcony was a good size with three chairs and a small table.
The free wifi in the lobby had a very good signal. As wifi in the room cost 5 Euro for 90 minutes, I decided to stick to the free provision in the lobby.
The breakfast buffet was very good with plenty of choice of cereal, yoghurts, eggs, bacon, fried vegetables, pancakes, cheese, cold meats, salads, home-made jams and bread. The food at the dinner buffet varied in quality with one evening’s offering very good, one OK and another with pretty ropey main courses of very fatty lamb stew and tough pork. But most of the food was pretty tasty, especially a couple of the desserts; a fruit flan and a walnut gateau.
There’s a small sandy beach at Queen’s Bay, a five minute walk from the hotel where Demetrius went swimming one morning. There isn’t much to do in the surrounding area but the bus between Paphos and Coral Bay stops close to the hotel.

In summary, I’d recommend the Theo Sunset Bay Holiday Village as an excellent value for money option. But I’d classify it as a 3 star hotel and not 4 star. It was great to have the space and facilities of an apartment, even although we were on half board, as well as a sea view, at such a reasonable price. The free wifi in the lobby with a very good signal was a real bonus for me.
