The Hotel Avanti gives you easy access to the beach and Paphos' town centre. There's a lot going on back at the property, too, with a big pool and an impressive list of sports, activities and entertainment.
One of the Hotel Avanti’s major draws is its location. The property is a short walk from the beach, and you’ll find shops, restaurants and bars on your doorstep. Better still, you’re within easy reach of Paphos’ harbour and pretty old town – it’ll take you around 20 minutes on foot.
The swimming pool also deserves some credit. It’s a big, curvy number that snakes its way around a terrace that’s dotted with loungers, parasols and palms. There’s a swim-up bar, as well, so you can sip coffee and cocktails without moving from the water. Smaller guests aren’t forgotten, either – they get their own pint-sized pool.
In terms of what else is going on, days are pretty lively, with games, sports and competitions laid on. It’s a similar vibe come sundown – the restaurant hosts regular themed nights, with Greek, Mediterranean and Cypriot cuisine. Plus, karaoke, live music and dancing are all on the agenda.

We spent 10 days at this family run hotel and I can fully recommend it. The staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had B&B and there was a lovely selection of cooked food, eggs and omelettes cooked to order, fresh fruit and even porridge! We ate in the restaurant one evening for the Cypriot night and there was a lovely selection of local foods, salads and desserts. Our room was cleaned daily and the maids did a brilliant job. The beds were comfy and the showers were brilliant. The hair dryer in the room was also good. We didn't see any of the evening entertainment as we went out in the evening but we took part in the archery every day and Maria was great! We really enjoyed the welcome party that was laid on by the owners of the hotel and met the staff who were all very helpful and friendly. It was our first visit to Cyprus and we will definitely be visiting The Avanti Hotel again. More

Tyranny of the Minority
Overall this hotel has many plus points for a family holiday or lazy week away in the sun. The rooms are comfortable, the pool a good size with many sun loungers and it is in a good location. However.... Tranquility is disturbed daily by blasting music around the pool courtesy of the "animations team". I write this review whilst music is pumped out for just four people doing aqua-aerobics. The other one hundred odd people not participating have to endure this and disregard any inclination to have a conversation. Whilst the music will be turned down for the rest of the day it is a constant irritant. The buffet breakfast is standard fair, with a cooked option and mainly tinned fruit. The pool bar food was good in our experience and reasonably priced. We didn't have an evening meal in the hotel and didn't see any of the entertainment so can't comment. The beach is 250 yards from the hotel and a 15 minute walk along the promenade brings you to the harbour area. There are a number of good quality and value restaurants within 5 minutes and no shortage of options. Overall, a decent spot for a family holiday but not the place for a quiet week away.More

It was ok
I booked this holiday after seeing all reviews of this hotel. We went as a family of 5 so money was a bit tight for this holiday. We came out by easy jet which arrived at around 11pm so we missed a whole day - not the hotels fault!! We had breakfast which had buffet style of fruit, fried food, toast and pastries and some poached eggs and pancakes. This was a wide selection of food but was ok. However you had to get in quick because people were piling as much food onto their plates as possible!! Our room - this was not very clean - we overlooked the car park which was fine. Our bath everyday was blocked so in between showers we had to wait for the water to go down. The bathroom did have other peoples hair in their so that was a bit yucky. I think on the Thursday (we went saturday to saturday) the cleaner did quite a good job. The beds were made everyday - but one day they left all the covers off - could not understand why? We did not eat there in the evening as there are lots of local pubs and restaurants around and in the harbour. We did have lunch the first few days but it was not up to standard and we got charged for a meal that one person could not eat (the prawns were not very nice and seemed to have their poo sacks left in). The pool - after the first day we did have to get up early in the morning to get some sun beds as lots of towels were already lined up. The kids had great fun in the pool. My son lost his goggles and someone found them and put them at the edge of the pool for us to take back so thanks to whoever was honest!! However someone nicked one of our beds later in the week when we nipped off for lunch and they took our son's snorkel with them. We never got that back. So please watch out where you put your stuff and dont leave anything behind as I saw that people were nicking each others things and we had to ask for our stuff back as well like our lilos and water pistols that other people took. Overall it was ok but I did not see what everyone else seems to rave about. Sorry!!More

Really Good place to stay
We have just returned from a lovely 2 week holiday in the Avanti Hotel. It was well appointed and the staff was friendly and accommodating, we stayed in a spotless room overlooking a garden and car park which was ideal for us because it was so quiet, if we had been on the other side over looking the pool it might not have been so quiet. We stayed half board, and would recommend the food it was buffet style and there was plenty of choice and something for everybody. The only complaint on the evening meal was the sparkling water costs 3.30 euros a bottle the same price as a pint of beer. The room had a TV and tea making facilities, there was a small fridge and a hair drier, there was also an ironing room down the hall which was very handy, I understood that there was free wifi in the lounge but we actually had it in our room, There was an indoor pool and an outdoor pool and a gym. Would I stay there again, "absolutely".More

Another fantastic holiday
Just returned from another stay at the Avanti if possible this holiday was even better than last time.During closed season they have obviously decorated throughout making everywhere very fresh.The staff as usual were all very helpful and welcoming especially Renata the Restaraunt manageress who remembered us from last year and gave us big hugs and kisses.The food was amazing and has something for everyone.The chefs are on hand to explain the different foods if need be.Our room was very clean and the housemaids were also very good and always welcoming.We had complimentry sandwiches sent to our room as a welcome for returning again.I would say you are made to feel a part of the family and things have improved from last year if thats possible.Will definately be back again. xMore
