Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Lovely views, interesting church, museum and hermit's cave. Well worth the trip into the hills. Entry fee to Museum and hermit's cave is negligible.

    Very nice clean shopping mall with a few shops and places to eat. My favourite retail outlet 'ZARA' was so excited to go and shop. Staff were all friendly, also love Pull & Bear. There is a Costa and Starbucks. Kids shops, sports shops, supermarket and clothes shops a nice small range of shops under one roof. Decor is beautiful too, car park at the basement of the shopping mall. Also has free wifi! Use the taxis at the end by Starbucks and try to book a return fair as it is much cheaper.

    We visited a few years ago with our brother & sister in law.

    We just turned up butc we were made to feel very welcome & we're given a tour of the winery before settling down to the serious business of some wine tasting.

    A really great chance to sample some great Cypriot wines.

    Paphos Ethnographic Museum is well worth a visit. The private museum, the family's old home, boasts an interesting collection of family memorabilia, traditional artifacts and archaeological finds of George Eliades. It was a pleasure to view the collection and discuss their significance with George's daughter, the custodian.

    We entered this shop November 2022 and regretted not buying anything as all their work was stunning. Since then we returned this May (2024) and purchased a personalised wooden art block with mine and my partners name on with the date we were married as well as blue Cypriot glass in a wedding pose for the middle. The service is amazing, they let you browse without being interrupted. We will definitely return again!

    Wednesday 5th October and we walked passed this impressive Church and Monastery, we had hoped to go in and have a look but it was closed.

    We were not sure if it was closed for safety reasons as there was building works going and the base of the massive main dome which was surrounded by scaffolding.

    It could have been closed as the lingering effects of the pandemic or only opened on certain occasions. We could find no notice regarding opening times.

    Although we were unable to go in we were able to walk around outside and admire this rather special building.

    It is rather easy to find as the two tall bell towers and central domed roof, all topped with terracotta tiles, are visible from some distance, they are outstanding external features of this mighty building.

    The Church and Monastery were built in 1649 on the site of a stone-age settlement. It is said that two Brothers, Saints Cosmas & Damianos, founded the Monastery. They cared for the sick and the dying and never took any payment, hence the name of the Church translates " without payment".

    During the 19th Chuch and Monastery fell into disrepair but was restored when spring waters were discovered on the site, they were believed to have restorative and healing powers.

    At the start of the 20th Century they were both partly destroyed due to an earthquake but was renovated on top of the exiting foundation. Monks have lived here since then

    The church has been renovated several times in it’s lifetime, but it's original thick stone walls are the same.

    Near the front entrance to the Church there is a mosaic picture depicting Saint Cosmas.

    We did drive by here on a couple of times during our holiday and the Church was always closed. Every time we passed we commented on what an impressive building it is.

    This is a great little museum about the local village of Steni which really encapsulates what Cyprus used to look like. The history is fascinating. It would have been better if there was someone there to answer questions. Even a little video. The little kids played in the playground while the adults went around.

    I visited this small museum on the Tuesday and was pleased to find it was free. It has just five rooms housing relics dating as far back as the Bronze Age to Roman and Christian times. Everything is extremely clearly displayed with Greek and English labels. I found the ceramic vessels in the shapes of different parts of the human anatomy, to be filled with hot or cold water to bring relief from injury or disease absolutely fascinating. The museum is worth a visit for half an hour or so and close by on the other side of the road is a great coffee shop too!

    The museum is now situated in Yeroskipou Square in a better building (it used to be a school) more suited to the objects on show. Yeroskipou is located a few kilometres to the East of Paphos and is itself very interesting with an Ethnographic museum and an ancient church (Ayia Paraskevi). Further information on the Visit Cyprus web site. Please don't waste time trying to find the museum in it's previous location.

    The winery is surrounded Breathtaking views of rural wine country. There is a lovely terrace to enjoy your wine flights. We went on a rainy day and stayed inside. The staff was pleasant and their wines were most interesting. We bought a few of their special labels Reds. And, we ate at their restaurant where the food was outstanding. Would highly recommend it. Worth the drive and combine it w/another winery or activity for the day. Much fun.

    While visiting Paphos, my husband and I visited this quaint museum on a rainy day. I enjoy museums like this, but wasn't sure what to expect from this one. The website has very minimal information. It is a small museum that does not take a long time to visit. They have many informational signs for the rooms that are in Greek and English (very much appreciated the English). Entrance is free which was very surprising to me. They should at least charge a couple of Euros per person for upkeep. We enjoyed our visit to the museum, but unless you love this kind of museum, I would not go out of your way to visit. However, it is a short walk to another museum which we thought about returning on anther day to visit but didn't and down the street from a church and plaza.

    An award-winning, family-run winery in the hills above Paphos. They don't offer 'structured' wine tastings (though there are plans to offer this in the near future) but we called in unannounced and they were delighted to let us sample their wares and even provided some snacks.
    We tried the Xinisteri, both roses (all excellent) and the Commandaria (divine). We departed with an assortment of extremely reasonably-priced wines and a bottle of their oak aged Zivania (when in Cyprus...).
    A thoroughly enjoyable experience and a highly recommended winery.
