Is Paphos, Cyprus really, really bad for a family holiday ?

Is it full of spewing teenagers and discarded condoms ?

Or ok for a family holiday with a couple of teenagers ? Be honest please, nothing is booked...

It took us a few days to notice!
The boys were about 14 or 15 years old.
I thought they must of had a chalet near ours!

I went to Paphos last May with my DH. Stayed at a First Choice all inclusive hotel called Louis Phatheleon (or similar)

I'd happily go again, it was lovely. No yobs, no idiots, no hen parties etc.

Have forgotten, ER, I have looked at that many < head spin >

Am currently wavering over Papantonia Hotel Apts in Protaras, however. Cheap and cheerful. Reviews not too awful.

Can't make my mind up though, am also considering Menorca and Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.

AMY, I am talking about men in their twenties and thirties ! (when dd was 14)

Iirc the papantonia is not very close to main part of protaras.

I have stayed in tsokkos beach and Vangelis.

Both decent if basic holiday bases.

Vangelis was an appt and tsokkos beach was a hotel.

We went self catering in vangelis but the food looked ok.

Papantonia nearer to Pernera, according to the bumpf....connected by a pedestrianised boardwalk thingy (I like them)

Pernera beach connected to Protaras beach, sorry (and possibly round to Fig Tree bay, towards Ayia Napa)

Have no wish to go to Ayia Napa, but wouldn't mind a nosy.

AF! awful.

It is a lovely walk around the beach.

We love it there tbh. Obviously it isnt the maldives but its clean, the people are friendly and the water is beautiful.

I would definitely be going again this year if the budget would stretch.

oooh am i too late for this thread AF? Have you booked? Just wanted to say that Fig Tree Bay is lovely, and where the Cypriots go.
I like Paphos and don't think of it as a boozy kids resort at all, that's definitely Napa.
We are hoping to get out there for 1st time in almost 4 years this summer and will either be Paphos or Limassol.

PS Columbia Beach Resort at Pissouri is amazing but vay pricey.
