Cypriots near me just thieve and pinch anything that isn't nailed down.
Mistress' comments: It must be something they learned from the Brits, back in '65 when they even nicked the curtains from the loo. We all share our cultural exports these days - war, resource theft, genocide and torture - what's better in the UK?

Like Cyprus very much but was disappointed to visit the Mekadeion Theatre
band find such poor facilities. One of the nice things about going to a concert
is the time to meet in good surroundings. The Orchestra was wonderful and
soloist a delight but Oh what about the toilets. Please try to help the people
who visit Cyprus for the cultural events not only the sun.

Nice informative site written in a friendly way. Always wanted to see Cyprus as
I have flown over it many times.
Mistress' comments: Hi there. Thanks for the comments, however there is no French side ! Oh, you mean do we drive on the left or right.. Left. Same as the UK. There is plenty to keep kids occupied. Visa requirements are covered in the Visa section, but always make sure with your travel agent before travelling. Enjoy.

I Like you, for sure :) Anyone who has a nice thing to say about Cyprus is a
friend of mine. Spent much of my life in England and love going back to my roots
in Cyprus to spend time with family and friends. Relaxing up in the mountains or
having a good time on the beaches and in the bars, its all good.
Mistress' comments: Oh boy - you're not going to like me for long I'm afraid - you obviously didn't read the 'hunting' section. Or should I say the anti hunting section, full of grown men in full battle dress, stalking small mammals and birds - shame on you, can't you afford the pork? (actually, truth be known, (and it looks like it's going to be) I think that is a liberty too - we add insult to injury by not even letting them live as they were designed too - we are supposed to take care of the animals that are left, not exterminate, maim and torture them. Fat hope the planet has really ! Off the soap box - Thanks Zen!

many of them at www.cyprus-villas.com
and more still at www.agrotourism.net.
You may also wish to consider renting a small apartment complex with a pool,
that would mean that all the guests could congregate together in a common area
specifically private to your party, see some options at

Cyprus will enter the 'uro money!' as you put it in a year or so, faster than
any other recently accepted into the EU country. Romania, Bulgaria, from,
Albania, Serbia, Ukraine etc. are in Europe but are less 'European' than Cyprus.

I am planning a holiday in Cyprus this coming May. I am going to stay there for 8 days 7 nights. I dont plan to stay at one place throughout my stay and I have roughly decided on an itinerary which I would appreciate your comments - I will arrive at Larnaca thus my trip will roll out from there, so it goes.. Larnaca (drive to Nic for a day trip) - Lemesos - Pafos - Troodos - Larnaca. I love beaches which is why i have chosen the above coastal route. Is 8 days enough for this route or am i spending too much time along the coastal line? I am spending 2 nights at each places except for Troodos which i will just put up one night before driving back to Larnaca the next day to catch a flight. Your comments and advice is greatly appreciated... thanks!
Mistress' comments: Sounds like a nice trip, but if you love beaches I would say the ones to see are in Ayia Napa/ Protaras (that lovely sandy blue water kind ) and perhaps Latchi and Polis area, the quiet forest down to the beach kind. Have a great holiday in Cyprus.

i WANT TO MAKE A BIG IMPRESSION TO MY FRIENDS THAT ARE FIRST TIME VISITORS TO CYPRUS THEY HAVE BEEN ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THEM SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAT THEY WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?
Mistress' comments : There is an old Chinese blessing/curse which says 'may you live in interesting times'. We certainly don't wish that their visit will punctuate the long history of catastrophe which marks the island, but maybe show them the now ruins that were once thriving centres, such as Khirokhitia, Curium and Salamis to give them an idea of the timeline of myth and mahyem. Enjoy.
hi, ive just booked a holiday in cyprus, were going to protaras on may 1st. does anyone know how hot the weather will be at this time, will it be really hot, also, were going to be staying at the vangelis. Anyone whos been there, is it good?
Thank you for very fine web. sites. I like very much your friendly way to wright and the lay-out as well. Sitting here in the cold Norway I look forward to visit Cyprus again in april.

Brilliant site, was in Cyprus couple of weeks ago for first time, cant wait to go back there
I'd just like to say I really liked your website, especially as it is the only site on the web where you can find decent information on the country, seeing as my whole geography project would have failed if I hadn't come across this page!!! And also, being an English born Greek Cypriot, it was nice to see all your hard word poured into a website over the little country, and I'd call it more than just a window on Cyprus!!
Thanks again, Rena xx
Mistress' comments : Thank you Rena, what a nice comment.
i would like to say i am very impressed with the website and think it portrays Cyprus in the best possible way!
Hi, I truly enjoyed your page. I'm going on a vacation to Cyprus in November. My question is: Do they have a problem with dogs there? I saw the problems in Italy and it just so sad. I'm afraid, I wouldn't enjoy it there, I would probably run around and feed the poor dogs. Can any of you give me information about the mentioned problem?
Mistress' comments : The attitude towards dogs and other pets has changed dramatically over the last 10 -15 years (thank goodness) It is nowhere near as thoughtless as it used to be - that notwithstanding, you will see hungry looking hunting dogs n the right season, the rest of the year they are tied up in small pens, pointing out the cruelty of this to the owners may seem a waste of time but attitudes will only change by education and your input is both valuable and welcome.
Thank you for an interesting site detailing the various options available in Cyprus. However, we are invited to a wedding in Cyprus, where the groom's mother and father are not together and the wedding is being held in Cyprus. In the UK mother and father of the groom or bride sit together regardless of their current marital situation. Therefore can you give me some informatuion as to where in the Church should the mother and father of the groom sit?

Hi there again, Its me Husein.Rawji. Have visited the whole of your WEBSITE and indeed it is very BEAUTIFUL and well programmed. I would suggest to you to add the GEM&JEWELLERY section which is missing in your SITE,i do believe that in CYPRUS you do have your CUSTOM/FASHION jewellery and i guess that has to be advertised because everyone loves jewellery, also there should be adverts where as one can buy the Jewellery. I hope u will understand what i mean and take my advice for the Jewellery adverts because i have taken alot of pain to look for The GEM & JEWELLERY section in your WEBSITE and even tried your Chat Room but could not find anything. Thanks Regards. Husein.Rawji.

I was reading some tourist information a few weeks ago on another website and was really interested in visiting the turtles, but after reading your comments it made me think and I honesty didn't realise we'd be making life difficult for them. So thanks for the advice and I hope other people take it into account as well!

Excellent site. We are looking at going to Protoras in a friends private villa in October. We were wondering how many things are still open at that time of the year and are there any waterslide parks or anything for children.
I saw on the site that it rains a fair bit in October do you tend to get a quick downpour and then it is warm again. Many thanks Maria
As per a previous enquiry - we are looking for places where there may be snorkelling ? We will be based in Pissouri.

It's a relaxing place, the people there certainly know how to truly LIVE.... they make you very welcome. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I always had the feeling that Greek people can be very stubborn and egoistic. The referendum in Cyprus on reunification made that clear. I am happy that I moved out of Europe, if countries like that join the European Union the whole thing doesn?t make sense anymore. Maybe Cyprus should have been forced by the EU to unite, making the reunification a must before joining. Payback time will come, there will be no goodwill for this Cyprus in the European Union, they better cooperate or face some very stiff wind. Funny, that democracy once came out of Greece?. I have more sympathy towards the Turkish part now, for the first time.
Stephan Lindenfeld, Singapore
Mistress' comments : In my experience people from any nationality can be stubborn and egoistic. The referendum was on a 9000 page document which it seems no one had read - so a simple yes or no vote represented optimistic acceptance or fearful protest. Stiff wind has been blowing at the islands shores for thousands of years - let us hope that the matter can be settled by the people for the people and not just imposed by those who should have stood by their guarantor duties in the first place.
Hi there, I think you have made me fall in love with Cyprus just by reading your web page! Which is not a bad thing at all!.! I hope to visit during the month of May.

North side of Cyprus is the pits compaired to the south side. It is disgusting what they have done and how they have left it. I know alot about Cyprus, I am English but Cyprus is my homeland, okay so the greeks arent perfect but at least they keep their country clean, fresh and beautiful. Imagine another country taking your house and home and then some time later having to pay ?10 and show a passport just to go back and see it - disgusting!!!!
Really like the Website. I have a real passion for Cyprus & the Website brings the place alive for me. My advice to people if you are thinking about a visit to Cyprus Don't just think about it do it. I did just that twelve years ago & find it hard to find anywhere else in the world that matches up & believe me I have travelled. The people are extremely friendly. The food is fabulous & the place is beautiful. You would honestly be hard pushed to find anywhere better.

North Side of Cyprus is occupied by Turkish Cypriots and Turk from Turkey who live very peacefully. Unlike what some Greeks, including so called Mistress promotes here, streets of North Cyprus is full of good people and NOT soldiers with their tanks or guns. Turkish army is in Cyprus according to International Law as it is now being accepted by the rest of the world. It would be nicer to say nice things if you wish to promote peace and convince people of that without bias.
Mistress' comments : I am sorry - we are not in the propaganda business.
North Side of Cyprus is occupied by Turkish cypriots and not illegaly. Woul be nice if you removed the first sentence of your home page and concentrate on nice and peaceful things
Help peace in the worl without unprecidented hatred.
'it is an island divided by a green line, with a Greek speaking and a Turkish speaking population, and a United Nations presence to "keep the peace". These pages are about the Republic of Cyprus , the Greek speaking side.. The "other " side is illegally occupied by Turkish troops.' This still holds true.
I don't know how anyone can say Cyprus is expensive.We go to a Cypriate restaraunt in Glasgow and it can cost ?80 for a mez, two spirits/mixer and a bottle of Thisbe (this alone costs ?12). A comparable meal in Paphos costs ?25.There is no comparison to the service which is so much better and friendlier in Cyprus. Terriffic site keep going strong
Hey just come back 61 of us went out there for two weeks for a wedding but had a fantastic time it was so good we've all booked a holiday for next year not only that but a couple of us are moving out in may 2004 so anyone wanting bar staff!!!

Hi, Just arrived home after two fantastic weeks at the Vangelis Hotel, Protoras. (10-24th Sept 2003). Have been to Ibiza for most holidays and was dubious about Cyprus but I have to say that Protoras was a great place to stay. Great bars, clubs, restaurants and the hotel was brilliant. Downside is that it's a resort for families and couples but as I was with my partner it was ideal!!! Ayia Napa is only ten minutes away (?8 CYP) and was expecting everything to be RNB etc but it was very party party and would recommend to anybody. Going back again next year and cannot wait!!!!
Your site is brilliant, one of the best I've viewed. It is clear, easy to navigate around and "invites you" to wander about just looking. Well done, keep up the good work. Glyn Graham.

I have just returned from Ayia Napa. Had a brilliant time. We stayed in a Villa near Nissi Beach. Much better than staying on a complex, dont have to worry about noisy neighbours or us annoying them! Every thing was wonderful - except - NISSI BEACH (BEACH) It is the most disgusting place in Ayia Napa. The beach is filthy. litter and fag butts every where and the constant din from the beach party is horrendous. If your staying in Nissi Beach Hotel, take ear plugs!! There are lots of other nice beaches all over. Cant wait till next year - see you there.

Miss my greek boyfriend much as well ='( Best wishes, From Moscow with love.
Ne dites NON ?l'entr? chypriote en Europe. Sagen Sie NICHT zur zypriotischen Eintragung zu Europa. Non dica NO all'entrata cypriot ad Europa. Diga NO a la entrada chipriota a Europa. Say NO to Cypriot entry to Europe.
Mistress' comments : As it happens I agree - however probably not for the same reason, but I will leave it here (:o))
Same sex partnerships in Cyprus? No way, Cypriot society is so biggoted.
Mistress' comments : Actually there are - however it is not advertised or openly promoted - bigoted is a big word - Conduct or mental state of one who holds disreputable view(s). - so in fact from a Cypriot traditional viewpoint a gay person would in fact be the bigot. It is an interesting topic though considering that here there are 2 types of homosexual - one is acceptable, the other a mere pushti.

Hi, Me and my Partner are going to stay in Markonissos at the Mon Repos Apts in September 2003 any informtion regarding either the Apts or Markonissos would be greatly.
Great site.. I went to Cyprus in May this year and August last year, and what a beautiful place it is, my parents live there, however, as per prvious articles, I have found that the prices are rising and it's becoming very similiar to rip-off britain. When on holiday you don't mind paying for quality, however the prices we now pay for accomodation and flights, you can now travel to luxury resorts in tropical places... Thats my only grudge, and I don't suppose it will stop me going to see the family.... ps Makronissos Beach with a cool box full of beer, strawberries and a bottle of wine for the missus.. it can't be beaten....
I have just found your site and am very impressed with the amount of information you include, well done!
I would like to know (for a visit in August) what border crossings are open in order for us to visit the northern area?

What a lovely interesting page. My husband and I are seriously thinking of moving to the Paphos area now we are retired, any comments, ideas would be appreciated.
Sorry I forgot to ask you, where or how I get book or articles from History of Cyprus? Excellent site. mercedespolonskyATuolsinectis.com.ar
I am very happy for this site. I will like to get a map of Cyprus, If you don't mind, can you send me a real and complete map of an Island.
If you can do it, I will very very happy.
I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I am super interested reading about your history. Already saw a documentary on RAI International about Cyprus.
Thank you very much.
Mercedes Herrera Polonsky.
Very interesting site. Do you have any information on Thalassotherapy in Cyprus? I would like to book sessions at the Anassa Hotel but I can't see how on the various sites I've tried.
Has anyone been to the Golden Star Apartments in Protaras? I'm going there in July and would like to know what people think about it.
great site. I served three tours with UN peacekeeping Forces (Cdn.) 1967,1972,1977 and always thought that Cyprus was a little piece of heaven. A beautiful island.
A very user-friendly site as an intro to Cyprus. Very well laid out with good subject headings. We are flying out tomorrow for two weeks in Platres and your site has whetted our appetite!. Well done. M.O.Leigh
Mistress' comments : Thank you (:o)) Have a great time.
We would like to have details of your flights arrivals & departures from and to Cyrpus.
Thank you in advance.
Can any one give me there views on staying at the princessa vera in paphos
very helpful to plan your holiday in advance fun and easy to use thanks x
Hi First time in Cyprus last Nov in Latchi...beautiful and peaceful and away from main hustle and bustle ...beaches not great for kids so this time (May) went to Ayia Napa staying 3 weeks at Hotel Christofinia off Nissi Beach. Hotel was great, couldn't fault it in the slightest one of the friendliest and efficient we've stayed in but Ayia Napa??? Nissi Beach is amazingly beautiful but also amazingly dirty! Cigarette butts everywhere, if your kids are still at an age of picking up everything in sight...Stress! Prices .... a joke!! Sorry have to agree with the previous comment...mind you if you like "Rip off Britain", you'll feel just at home with "Rip off Cyprus"!
Cyprus is becoming a trash can. Roads are shit, prices getting high, just like spain lost it's tourism 5 years ago but did something about it. cyprus is going to lose it's tourism it's all ready on the fall. fix up this place especially cyprus. wont be coming back for a few years until things improve.
anyone been to vangelis aparthotel in protaras, would like some information, also would like to know if its hot end sept. thanks, michelle, Bristol

Hi there! Going to Ayia Napa for 2 weeks in July. Has anyone gone on a cruise from there to Egypt as I think this would be a great thing to do while we're there?
Great site, especially like your newsletters. Very informative.
I have been UN soldier in 1986-1988, married on Cyprus and have holliday for five times so I love Cyprus. I come back next year. Finn Falck, Denmark
Just returned from Atlantica Bay in Limassol, what a fantastic hotel, this is my 4th trip to Cyprus, I just love the place. Shaun K.
i hate it
Great site for those who want a bit of info on Cyprus. And as for the best beaches....I totally agree with DC, although the night-life is a bit lacking, more for the over 50's I'd say
For the best beaches in Cyprus, go east from Ayia Napa. I can assure you that you will NOT be disappointed. Keep walking (or drive if you're lazy), from Protaras along the beach and head as far as you can go, checking out the coves near Pernera. They are great! No hustle and bustle, just quite and relaxing. From DC of Lincoln UK p.s. going back in June this year
hey your web page is really good me and my college friends are doing research on cyprus and this really helped thanks a bunch all the best 16 year old kimberley bourne
content's great but you really need to freshen up the looks
Like your site, just returned from two weeks in Coral Bay, had a great time.
What is the history of the ship stranded on rocks between phaphos and Coral bay?
coming over to ayia napa in a month to work for the summer. we were wondering if anyone can recommend cheap central accomodation for two people. do you think we would need to book before we come over.
Like your site, we having been going to Cyprus for 20yrs and love it, all of it, my husband did his national service there in 1959, hoping to retire there this year Wendy from Exeter
Love this site and use it every year when planning my return to Cyprus.
Coming back on June 7th for 14 days and am staying at the Napia Star.
Mistress' comments : Hi Jon, please see http://www.cyprus-hotels.com/napia_star_hotel_ayia_napa_cyprus.htm there is a picture of the gym. Glad you like the site.
You Have The Appropriate Coppery-Look!
This is a great site on the net. You have inspired me to come back and retire in Cyprus, the island of my youth. THANK YOU. V. J. Papa
It's cool but more info
Hi we wrote the letter about skydiving we really want someone to help us even the air sports federation could not help we love Cyprus and would love to do our favorite sport and be in our favorite place please someone could you help us?????
Llllllllllllllllllllllllove Ayia Napa! Every time I think of it and the fact that I'm not there, I feel like crying! Was there in October 02 with my boyfriend and the people were so friendly and the weather was fab even in Oct. I reeeeeally want to go back this year, but would it be affected by war? (Touch wood)
Has anyone stayed at the Lantiana Apartments in Protaras? They are new (opened in 2002). Any info/comments would be very much appreciated.
because you are reading this you have,just the same as me ,found the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
very good informative and friendly site!. one question, original property for sale,ie:-village property with character? , never see them on site,why not.
hi i like this site i went to cyprus in august 2002 and it was soooo good we went to anthea apartements in ayia napa we went to the fair over the road and the square around the corner it was brilliant the harbour was nice and we went sky diving and parachuting and boat trips there was macdonalds right near the hotel bye!!!!!!!!
I LIKE THIS PAGE A LOT!!
The site is good. My query: : I am an Indian National working in Saudi Arabia. Do I need to take tourist vis to visit Cyprus. India is one of the common wealth countries. When I have enquired with British Embassy in Riyadh. they said it is not required. Please clarify?
Hi, could anyone give us some information on sky diving or parachuting in Cyprus, we know of a place in Larnaca could you please tell us if there is anywhere else on the island, or give us more information on the site in Lanaca, thanks.
Hi, my family and i are going to the Blue crane appartments in Limassol in July 03 dose anyone have any information about them ?
The Anmaria hotel in Cyprus is great! Im 16 and really enjoyed it. the hotel was lovely, and was ideal for the family. Also being in Ayia napa, it was a popular holiday spot for clubbers. the square was only 10 mins walk away, and you could hear no nose from there at the hotel what so ever. having lots of awsome beaches near it also helped me relax and get a wicked tan. I have been back to the hotel 2 years in a row, since s its been open, and am planning to go again next year. I recomend this hotel to anyone!!!!
My partner and I are seriously thinking of coming to spend a year out in Cyprus to see if we could live there permanently.
One thing which concerns us, however, is the seeming lack of objective opinion on the "North, South" issue. The tourist-based web-sites are anything but even-handed in their handling of the subject.
In England we are all, sadly, very aware of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland. Older people may reflect that our colonial efforts at splitting India from Pakistanin the late 1940s wasn't too successful either.
Can it really be true that the Turks are all ghastly and the Greeks all good? Does the factor that Turkey is basically Muslim and Greece is basically Christian have a bearing? In England we are very pro-Greek (The Queen married one!). Turkey is rather less of an historical ally (they fought on the wrong side in the first world war, for one thing....)
Anyone thinking of buying a property in Cyprus must wonder what happens if a unification is effected. Is there a possibility that the original pre 1974 Turkish owner (or more probably their children) will make a claim to land that they doubtless regard as rightfully theirs in the South? Will others who used to live in the North go back to reclaim lands which they will, doubtless, regard as having been annexed by the Turkish contingent?
Having read most of your extremely well designed and helpful web-site at length, I have seen your sharp comments to those who speak of the merits of the Occupied North. Do you forsee that a reunion of North and South will mean a restoration of property to the pre-civil war historical owners - regardless of their ethnic origins.
These points are raised in a spirit of non-confrontational quest for serous opinion; and I would be very grateful for your pithy insight - which I am sure will be both informed and objective! Please don't tell me off for raising an awkward topic.
With best wishes,
William Weber, London.
Mistress' comments : Pithy
eh ? (:o))
Are there employment opportunities in Cyprus like foreign nurses who wish to work there? I have a friend who is leaving for employment there.
An excellent web site for a beautiful island which one day I hope to be a permanent resident of. However, I was disappointed to see horoscopes on your sight but nothing about the glories of the holy Orthodox faith.
Mistress' comments : Thank you... um we don't consider horoscopes to be a religion, and we do consider anyone's religion to be their own personal glory, but there is plenty of info about Greek orthodox churches here.
PLEASE FIND OUT THIS COMPANY DOES REALLY EXIST IN CYPRUS I-TOP NITES CORPORATION LIMITED.
Mistress' comments : We think it is a scam as we can't find them.
Hello Cyprus! We (my husband & I) are coming back to Limassol in Feb/March '03 for the first time since being there from '67-'70 (courtesy of the RAF). We realise it is going to be very different from the island we knew but, thanks to your site, do not feel completely alien. We would love to trace the people who were our landlord and landlady while we lived there. They were Nikky & Michael Nicholaou and they adopted a little girl called Marina shortly after we came home. Their address was 10(A) Gravias Street, Limassol and we wonder if there is any way of tracing them as we have lost touch over the years. My e-mail address is Kat52jc@AOL.com We'd be tremendously grateful for any help. Thankyou. :-)
Hello I HAVENT BEEN TO Cyprus yet but i am going this year June 20th with my familly and my boyfriend i think that you need to put all different pictures on eg: Famagusta And other really historical pictures to make people really interested at looking at your website. Apart from that it is very good.
From Jamie lee hallas in Barnsley. England
Mistress' comments : Well we can't get close enough to photograph Famagusta without getting arrested.
i can read the folowing example. my questions are what is the climate on the ncr and reagion 10 and i enjoy to text my comments pls answer....... cause it is very important pls. reply
Mistress' comments : What ?
Your web site was very enjoyable. I visit Cyprus for one month every October and would never dream of going any where else. But I stay clear of Princessa Vera in Paphos. James UK
I think you have a really good user friendly site. I have never been to Cyprus but will hopefully go this year - your site has sold it to me! Sue
I like it
I love your site very much. But you should also put information for foreigners wishing to relocate to Cyprus. You can tell us about visas and work opportunities and the lifestyle there for the benefit of someone who has never been there.

cyprus is cool, my nan lives there and when i finish 6th form at school, im mooving out there with my mate(s) 2 do collage and university! cant wait! from emma
Your web site convinced me more to move to Cyprus, so I have done and I love every minute of it!. Especially Agia Napa,(obviously!). Keep up the good work. Loadsa love, Em.
ok i love you guys site but there is just one thing you might want to think of adding. See some people may come to your site not only for travel information, but for research on projects also. You may want to consider having pictures of your different foods and drinks, a map, and some other photos of that sort of catagory. Thankyou, Dana
lefke is not lefkara you greek ... you
Thinking of going to Aiya Napa next summer and found your site very informative. thanx,Kara
i like that u guys hav a lot of info but u guys should put a physical map. you know so we can see like the mountains and weather and stuff.
HI MY NAME I NASHARA AND I REALLY DIDNT KNOW IF I LIKED IT OR NOT. HOW DO YOU GET A PENFRIEND? IT REALLY CONFUSED ME.
I realy like your site; I hope it is imformative about life in Cyprus; including the houses for sale posted which don't really exist. Well, such is life!
Mistress' comments : All
houses etc on site do exist. The fact that we post the date that they were put
up for sale seems to confuse people, as after a couple of years they assume the
place must be sold, but this is not necessarily so.
i really love cyprus!!!!!!i went there this summer(02)and i really had a gooooooooooooooooooooood time!!the hotel we were sleeping in was Kition,with that cool and nice DION poolbar!i miss you Eve (who is working in the best bar in Larnaka on the prominade..)MISS U SOOOOOOOO MUTCH!!hope will meet again!big hug from Norway kine
in worried thet you might use the imfo that i gave you for the horoscpoe for something else.
Cypros is nice, but ******* expensive in Agia Napa. Carwash barmens think that they are most important persons in world, especially this without hair ass in the corner bar...
HI there, I am thinking of taking my family to the Sunquest Gardens in Limassol next year (03). Has any one any experience of this complex?

Great site, but the disabled bit is a bit short on content. Among other things disabled people need are to know about the availability of suitable toilets and transport. For those who need to wear diapers, where can they be bought?
We are going to cyprus soon and wondered if there are any decent salsa clubs in Larnaka. Thanks
We had a fantastic two weeks on your beautiful island. Now we are home and can think of nothing else but returning as soon as possible. We will be submitting photos to your Cyprus com as soon as we have sorted the most interesting. We will be recommending Cyprus to all our friends.
this is a really cool site, i been to cyprus 7 times in the past 7 years and i think i will still continue to come for the next years to come. i want to buy some appartments in cyprus and dont know where to look, anyhow back to the site, i think you should add some fun things to do while in cyprus because there are so many things that people dont know about.
Congratulation on the AMAZING site. A lot of good information, very easy to navigate (Let's hope you don't start listening to the experts now). It has a whole lot of Information, more than any other site I've seen. But here are a few suggestions. 1) Never make users pay to use your site 2) Make it more "project friendly". For example, I'm in gr 6 right now and need some information on Cyprus for a project. I don't need History, but what it would be like to live there as a citizen, receiving no extra privileges as a tourist. I have to find out about the education system, (what methods they teach in, what conditions the schools are in, what recourses they have, etc.) Health Care (Enough doctors,nurses, clean water, etc) Economy, Employment, Social Welfare and the Political System. Maybe you could gather information from students that visit your site what they need for their Cyprus Project, whatever it may be, and then create an area on you Website just for us ( Pupils that need information ). If you have any information on the things I listed, please, please send them back to me at email@example.com . I can use names of websites, names of books or just plain raw info in the email u send to me. Once again, GREAT SITE!!!!
Sincerely, Hoping for reply
Mistress' comments : (:o)) Budding politician.
Is there a Company by name ITOP NITE CORPORATION LTD IN LIMASSOL,CYPRUS? please let me know regarding this beacuse i am wasting my valuable time.Its been months and i dont understand what these people doing.If they are purely cheating people for money, they will go to hell.....
Hi to all who contributed thier precious time in devloping such a wonderfull site of informative information. I was so disapointed previuoslly for not getting good sites on cyprus but one day i found this site informative. I am comin in cyprus for MBA in CYPRUS COLLEGE. If possible i would like some of from your organisation please revert back in my below ID. MEHARVERMAATLYCOS.COM
ITOPNITE IS A BIG FRAUD PLS. DO NOT GET INTO THE TRAP ,THIS COULD ALSO BE A MONEY LAUNDRING PROCESS FOR UNLAWFULL ACTIVITIES Please be aware and spread this to as many people as possible.
Mistress' comments : We are as you can see.
love this site. we are thinking of relocating to cyprus in the near future. My husband and i got married at the goldencoast, penera, protaras in sept 2000. we were very impressed with the way our wedding was handled and it truly was the best day of our lives. knights bar in penera is just the best for english breakfasts and at night yanis and his staff really made us laugh with their 'tom cruise cocktail entertainment'.
Superb site, best I have ever come across, most informative, if not humourous at times. Keep up the good work
David Woolley England
Its been nearly months. i am unable to connect to ItopNite website. I am just wondering whether this company is there or not. Guys make sure you wont be trapped.
Mistress' comments : We did check out the company for these guys - don't touch them!
I just had the most tremendous vacation in my WHOLE LIFE there. I have been around to many countries... but CYPRUS will always be the most special. I recommend everyone to go there. Great value for money, and it's just a dream come true. Love from Jordan.
Hei Ayia Napa, Party people! We had a great fun last week. Met a lot of nice girls from all over. Greets to Israel, Sweden, Russia, Ireland, England and all the party people over the world and finally Switzerland. We'll come back next year. SA Pub was great, carwash castle we love ayia napa greets also to nadine and conny from berne, and the crazy guys from lucerne and aargau, we'll meet you at the ayia napa party in zurich. greets to dj-t at SA Pub. I love your record! Peace Mike and Alex
Love the site, mainly because you get to see even the pratts that moan about Cyprus [some people moan about anything] but nice to see open and honest information. As for the people that make comments about Cypriots not being friendly the old expression "reap what you sow" comes to mind and if you make a bit more of an effort you might get a surprise, but then you prefer to carry on moaning and have a miserable life [sad gits] I have been going to Cyprus with my family for seven years [the only place we have been more than once] we liked it so much we bought an apartment and if it were not for my children's schooling, sporting activities etc etc we would probably be living there.
So to all of you sad people that come on here to moan, look at yourselves and your attitude to life, change that and your life might improve!! Also look at the comments on this board 99% are very positive and if you have a brain that must tell you something, when you always look for the downside don't be disappointed with what you find as we can all make a pigs ear of life. Me I prefer to go on holiday and have the best time I possibly can, I have spent some of the best days of my life in Cyprus. I have never had a bad word with a Cypriot, I love the weather, the beaches and the fact that you are just accepted by Cypriots and welcomed as though they have known you for ever . If you cannot have a good holiday in Cyprus you need help!!!!
My partner and I will shortly be visiting Cyprus and I thought that I would do some background research. I was lucky enough to find your Web Site, What a great site it is and so informative, (I personally liked the' Cyprus Food' section). Having navigated your site we are both eagerly looking forward to our holiday. Regards, Andrew & Pam
WEVE HAD 2 FANTASTIC HOLIDAYS IN PROTARAS CHEAP BOOZE HOT SUN TERIFIC BEACHES BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING FANTASTIC PEOPLE MY KIDS ADORE CYPRUS LOVE TO EVERYONE IN THE BIKINI BAR ON FLAMINGO BEACH AND THE GOLDEN STAR HOTEL SEE YOU ALL FOR THE GREAT ESCAPE NUMBER 3 (WE BOOKED IN JUNE )SEPTEMBER 15 2003.-51 weeks to go and counting
i think that your website is ok but im doing a project about the party life of cyprus
I am ashamed to say, as an Irishman, that an Irish delegation of three m.p.'s visited the Northern part of the country in July as guests of that area's "government". Thankfully they were attacked in the media and hopefully it won't happen again. All Irish people should, as people who also live on an island of which some 20 % is occupied by a foreign power, respect the way "Southern" Cypriots feel about the North. I have been to Cyprus twice and will head over again next year. I will never visit the North until the island has been re-united and would appeal to all right-thinking people, Irish and otherwise, to do the same.
Has anyone been to Cyprus early October - I keep reading weather reports which suggest that the rainfall is very high and the temperatures aren't so good! Please can someone put my mind at ease! I am hoping for a hottish, dryish, fortnight and don't want to be hotel-bound.
Does anyone have any information on the Loutsiana apartments at Nissi Bay, Ayia Napa? I would like to know its whereabouts in relation to the beach and shops (a map would be really useful) I am going to Cyprus at the end of September. Many thanks. Hils
Discover Northern Cyprus. Escape to this Tranquil Island Now!
DISCOVER HIDDEN TREASURE IN THE MEDITERANEAN......... You may not have heard much about NORTH CYPRUS, but we can assure you it does exist. The problem is that those discerning travellers who have discovered it, often prefer to keep it to themselves. And who can blame them, when there are so few places left in the Mediterranean which are this unspoilt, and untouched by commercialism. NORTH CYPRUS is a charmed land. A land where you can get away from the crowds and discover miles of deserted golden, sandy beaches. Where you can walk in beautiful mountains, home to rare species of plant and wildlife. A land with a history almost as long as that of civilisation itself , with a treasure trove of castles, abbeys and palaces, which you can explore at will. An enchanting land where a holiday will feel like a fairytale. THE SECRET'S OUT. NORTH CYPRUS for more information and booking please visit url removed by THE SPOILSPORT MISTRESS - SEE WHY BELOW
mistress' comments :THIS IS AN ADVERTISMENT FOR THE ILLEGALLY OCCUPIED PART OF CYPRUS... THE QUESTION IS - DO YOU WISH TO SUPPORT THE RULE OF THE BOOT ? Some UK MP's have bought houses there (or have been given rented accommodation for many years at ridiculous token rents ) so that they will try and convince you....the voting democracies of the world ... that ... 'hey , it's been a long time now ... forget it'... We think you have more heart than that.
Hey Chris. There's one club in Larnaca where we used to go. It's called Memphis.They play techno, r n'b ,house u name it. Foam parties on sundays! But if u want really hard techno u should go to The Castle in Ayia Napa. Have a nice time! Kat
I'm going to Larnaca in 2 days and we stay there for 1 week. I like to know if there's a club where they play Techno.
Mistress' comments : Thanks for the knowledgeable reply Kat (see above)
My husband and I stayed at the Anmaria Hotel last October. I thought the facilities were good and the hotel very clean however, the food was abysmal. The choice was very limited, particularly in the evenings. Any meat on offer looked like the bits I would normally throw away at home. Lunches were worse and the staff were not helpful or friendly. This is a real shame because the Hotel is in a great spot and has loads to offer with a really good pool. I would only stay here again if I could go Bed & Breakfast. There are just too many great restaurants in Ayia Napa to stay in one place every night.
After our 6th stay at Protaras, this time at the Tsokkos beach hotel which all round was excellent and for this year for 5 of us cost ?2,750 (uk), when came to book for next year same hotel ?3,350. How can the hoteliers justify a ?600 rise. We love Cyprus but it seems it is a expensive place to stay compared to some other european destinations and could easily price itself out of the market. Is the Cyto aware of this? Hope to return one day.

Just back from 2 weeks at the Anmaria Hotel, Ayia Napa, Cyprus. Took a family of 6, (4 teenagers) .. hotel was very clean, staff very friendly (except for the Manager!) ... new building .. has teething problems, only to be expected I suppose. Pool lovely and popular with the kids. The beach wasnt special ... very rocky and not good for swimming. We arrived at midnight in the middle of a power cut (these things happen) ... but the hotel emergency lighting was not working .... trying to gain access to three separate rooms, lugging cases up 3 flights of stairs with no torches was very upsetting for all - the Manager didnt seem to give a damn. The other staff in the hotel however made up for him, particularly Christos & Elias in the restaurant. Food was good some nights, other nights mediocre at best. House wine is not drinkable. The hotel has great potential, all the facilities you need, but I expected more from a 4* hotel, it needs an edge/atmosphere/the finishing touches - still looks like it hasn't been moved into yet. It could be so much more. Well placed in Ayia Napa, the nightlife is there if you want it but not right on your doorstep.
I just love Cyprus. Have been there two times already this year. I will be back Protaras. Charlotte L?gberg fam.langbergATtelia.com
I am going to Anmaria Hotel on the 4.08.02 be back on the 11.08.02 will give a no bulls:@t review straight to the point ..so watch this space
Hey mistress. Do u know anything abt the nightlife in Larnaca? Is it only bars with old people in them or are there some clubs as well? Plz answer as i'm goin in a few days..Thank u very much if u do:) Kat, Norway
It Sucks big time.
Having been to Cyprus as a couple, we are taking our 7 year old grand-daughter this October. It will be interesting to show her this website before we go (you know how kid's are these days with computers), and see what her comments are after her arrival back to UK.
Brilliant Website - I have found this has got the most comprehensive of details on what to do and where to go. I can't wait to go on holiday now!
I just came back from Ayia Napa and loved it, I think your site is good but you should get some pictures of those sexy bar men at Bedrock it will definatley encourage more people to go there!!!!
Query - anyone know of a nudist beach in the Paphos area (within 20 miles)? Answers to web or firstname.lastname@example.org We are returning to Cyprus in October and yours must be the last website we visited! It's brilliant - having lived in Cyprus we found most of the info can be totally relied on. Keep up the good work. Robin Fraser
Mistress' comments : Ta (:o)) Of course nudist beaches are not official as nudism is considered an offence. It is however practiced by a lot of visitors, and most places are topless.
CYPRUS IUS A BAG OF **** MAN I WOULD NEVER GO AGAIN.I HATED IT.AND THIS WEB SITE IS WACK! XXXXX
Hi... Had a great time in Cyprus with my wife and 3 children. We stayed at the Anmaria Hotel in Ayia Napa. The hotel is 4* and has only been open a month so these are probably just teething problems! The food was inconsistent and there was a real lack of choice which dosen`t help with hungry children. We stayed half board but other guests that stayed all-inclusive commented that some of the lunch meals were almost inedible. The evening entertainment was very disappointing and there needs to be more thought and investment in this to keep guests on site. But overall, the facilities cannot be faulted, nice rooms, lovely pools (outside & in), right on the beach and far enough away from the centre of Ayia Napa to be quiet but only 15 minutes stroll to all the bars, harbour and the famous square! Ultimately I recommend it as I am sure it will improve, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are good!
I want to know if the nightlife in Larnaca is any good? Is it just local music there or are they updated on popular music in the clubs( if there are any?) Great site by the way :)
Fine but hard to follow the strings of comments e.g. would be useful to see what people's views of accomodation is like.
I wondered if anybody could give any information on Dekalia as we will be going their for parachuting, i have been told their is not a lot to do their, their is nothing on your site about this area, we have little information about this place and can not seem to find out anymore, we will be taking our daughter with us and wondered if she would be bored or not, can you help. Thanks
We had a fantastic two weeks (12th June to 26th) on your beautiful island. Now we are home and can think of nothing else but returning as soon as possible. We will be submitting photos to your Cyprus.com as soon as we have sorted the most interesting. In the meantime, anyone can see a small selection at: http://www.aninkling.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Cyprus.html We will be recommending Cyprus to all our friends.
The Green and Amos families.
Your site is great!

Hello, Now you can call me Oracle. I'm Turkish Citizen. I'm a soldier in Northern Cyprus (Turkish - accopied territory of Republic of Cyprus)My vision Cyprus people must be live together. I dont want to work military in here but I have to live here 1 more year. Because I'm a Christian. But nobody now in my Army. I want to contact with your goverment. My e-mail is annipekka2000ATyahoo.com Please help me about contact with them. Thanks again. Oracle
What a ridiculous opening remark. The Turkish Republic of North Cyprus is not 'occupied by Turkey. Just goes to show how little the Greek Cypriot Administration knows about their neighbours land.
Mistress' comments : No you are right... it is occupied by Turkish troops......how silly of me!
I love it
whate can I say??? I visited cyprus tow times. it is woderfol place & people. Nasser Rihani. jordanian living in united arab emirtes.
LIKE TWO OTHER GUYS I HAVE THE SAME QUERY, ITOP NITE CORPORATION LTD, FAETHON COURT, KANIKA COMPLEX, JFk STREET, LIMMASSOL, CYPRUS. I WANT TO KNOW WHETHER THIS ADDRESS CAN HELP TO FIND. IF ANYBODY HAS RECEIVED NEWS FROM THERE, DO CONTACT ME AT jagjinderATrediffmail.com
great web site! I'm going there with my girl, and two friends of mine. Us two guys are Americans who are living in Russia. We'll be there for two weeks in June. Does the web designer need anything (small) from Russia?
I take it my comments have annoyed you..for this Mistress. I apoligize.. If you ever require Networking support or print cartridges, dont hesitate to put forward a post and I will be glad to help.. Very sorry for my Ignorance..
Thanks for the answer to my question!!!!!!!!!!! NOT...
Could someone please tell me what the green bungalow appartments are like..
Whats the point on having a web board when you cant even take the time to answer the users questions?
And as for taking the time ..Oh yes your post was last thursday.. . I get 600 e mails a day with users questions, which had one of them been yours would have been forwarded to the right people. Have a nice holiday.
Any one been to Paphos in May/June? What are the roadworks like? Please mail me any comments Robert-taylorATcwcom.net Thanks
Mistress' comments : Pretty naf I hear, but you will need to ask who you booked with on particular accommodation.
Your site is utterly stunning. I've been around the 'net' since even before the 'web' was thought of and have visited probably 1000's of sites on just about every subject. But none of them come anywhere near yours for detailed comment, graphic design, humour and sheer readability. Who and whatt are you anyway?
How have you managed to reach such a superb standard? vincentATsminster.freeserve.co.uk
Heading to ayia napa on the 8th June - stayin in the Green Bungalow appartments.. Has anyone ever stayed here? If so, whats the appartments like.. Also - heard that its pretty expensive - I'm taking ?1000 sheets ( would this do for two weeks)???
Mistress' comments : You should get enough offers of people who would like to help you spend it !
is there a club, where they play Techno-Musik?
Once Again thank you for your time telling me the url and congrats on the GREAT SITE Sincerly, Hoping for Reply
Mistress' comments : Hi Highlander... better late than never we say (:o))
Hi again I wrote on 4/24/02 to you about a Project site. Since I am in gr 6 I am having a little bit of trouble finding it. If you could give me the URL of the Project Part of your site it would be VERY VERY VERY Helpful. Sincerly, Hoping for a reply
What an absolutely fabulous website!!! My wife and I have just booked our first holiday to Cyprus and having read some of your articles cannot wait to get there. thanks very much for your very amusing, refreshing, and information packed website. john.frater AT ntlworld.com
Mistress' comments : John, we love you. It is comments like this which keep us all going (:o))
Hi, all of you, I write from Italy I'm going to come back to Cyprus because I've lost the wedding's ring on the Troodos Mountain last year! If you find it take it to Mr Andreas of Restaurant Kalamakis where the meze's very good. Thanks.
to anybody that is thinking of going to cyprus, stop thinking and go, ayia napa if you want a good time, small village if you want some peace. The only sad thing is leaving.
Hi to all of you! I am going to Cyprus in May 2002. I must say I liked this web site. It gives lots of information.
Now me and my boyfriend where thinking of getting married in October in a nice island. Would Cyprus be a good choice in October????
By the way I must tell you something, a new Energy Drink will come to Cyprus!!!! A product from Montreal,Canada, where I come from....
Can't wait to go back!
I do not like the format of your website! the design is just horrid! the colours are not even nice and i would prefer to see something alot more fresh and exciting. I will be visiting this website again soon and do hope to see a dramatic change!
Update 2006 - we have tried quite a few designs now, but have yet to find one we like - we will however be going for one that we think is acceptable to all... watch this space.
Congratulation on the AMAZING site. A lot of good information, very easy to navigate (Let's hope you don't start listening to the experts now). It has a whole lot of Information, more than any other site I've seen. But here are a few suggestions. 1) Never make users pay to use your site 2) Make it more "project friendly". For example, I'm in gr 6 right now and need some information on Cyprus for a project. I don't need History, but what it would be like to live there as a citizen, receiving no extra privileges as a tourist. I have to find out about the education system, (what methods they teach in, what conditions the schools are in, what recourses they have, etc.) Health Care (Enough doctors,nurses, clean water, etc) Economy, Employment, Social Welfare and the Political System. Maybe you could gather information from students that visit your site what they need for their Cyprus Project, whatever it may be, and then create an area on you Website just for us ( Pupils that need information ). If you have any information on the things I listed, please, please send them back to me at email@example.com. I can use names of websites, names of books or just plain raw info in the email u send to me. Once again, GREAT SITE!!!!
Sincerely, Hoping for reply
We are getting married at the Aquasol Village Hotel in Pathos in August. We've heard mixed reports about the accommodation and food at this hotel/appartments - can you help?
Can anyone tell me what the Tsokkos Beach Hotel all inclusive is like? We intend to go there in May 2002. Elaine
April 19, 2002 I have never been to Cyprus and I would love to visit some day. I have a friend from the island and it looks as beautiful as he described it. Kelly K. Chadron, Nebraska, USA
Does anybody know anything about a company called ITOPNITE corporation which is based in limmasol, cyprus. pls mail me at saumen_pATyahoo.com
Mistress' comments : No, but do not pay to get typing work.
We did investigate this company and found them to have a phone that didnt work and a postal address that we think was just set up to receive $ - don't send money for jobs.
Wonderful website so much useful info I visit Cyprus 3 times a year and hope to retire there.
We were married in Paphos in 1999 and "Fell in Love with Cyprus". What impressed us from the first visit was the warmth and kindness of the Cyprus people and a sense of being safe.
Can anyone tell me about the roadworks that are currently happening in Paphos.
I am staying at the Louis Phaethon Beach at the end of April and I would like information on how we may be affected by the roadworks.
Mistress' comments : They are a nightmare by all accounts ! Some extensive stuff happening, check with the hotel individually though. www.cyprus-hotels.com informs clients of road works at any of it's hotels prior to their arrival. Nice touch we thought.
I am reading all of the wonderful things about your site but I have one question. What is the address of the site. My husband may be working there and if a move is in the future I would like to do some research. Thank You Colleen hillATplaneteer.com
this website is good for finding things about cyprus

Anyone know any Irish bars in Larnaca that show live Irish sport on Sunday afternoons in the summer? I know there are places in Limmasol and Ayia Napa but I'm stuck in Larnaca one Sunday and need to see a match!!!! Webmistress??? Anyone??Thanks
Mistress' comments : um..... no sorry. Revised answer in 2006 - Yes there is now an Irish bar in Larnaca !
Hi out there,
Can anyone tell me about the roadworks that are currently happening in Paphos.
I am staying at the Aloe Hotel in June. My travel Agent has written to me with a note saying there are some roadworks in the area. No details on the size or the timescales of the works. Any information please?
Thanks Dave snacfuATaol.com
Mistress' comments : They are a nightmare by all accounts ! Some extensive stuff happening, check with the hotel individualy though.
I AM PLANNING MY HOLIDAY TO COME TO AYIA NAPA, YOUR SITE SUPPLIED ALL THE REQUIRED INFORMATION I NEEDED. THANKS
Mistress' comments : Thank you. Have a great time in Napa
i think it's a great site. A lot of usefull information for people who is travelling and just every one. I have just one question...? What is tha drinking age in Cyprus? Please write me at dronsimAThotmail.com
Mistress' comments : 18. That is for public drinking. For drinking at home I have heard it put at 12 and 15.
I am a guy from Malta! I would very much appreciate some photos of some beautiful sites of Agia Nappa! Me and my friends are planning to come for 1 or 2 weeks in the first week of August'2002. We are also planning to rent a farmhouse because the prices look very good. I would very much appreciate if I could also receive some information relating to these farmhouses! We are really looking forward for this holiday so it would be of great help if we could possibly receive this information in a short time!
Thanks very much! bravoelt255ATyahoo.co.uk
I think this site is brilliant I found it when I was researching information for my new job and we are hoping to move to Cyprus with my work. My husband needs to find a job. Does anyone know anything about NCR Cyprus he works for this company in England and hopes to transfer the the same company. The company maintains shop tills and computer equipment in banks. Could anyone help with some information. christineATsanfordc.freeserve.co.uk
Excellent site for both newcomers to Cyprus and confirmed Cyprus lovers like myself. We are making our 9th visit to Cyprus in May, I have a question. I have been hearing rumours that the government has introduced a no-smoking in public places law and that tourists are subject to on the spot fines if seen smoking in bars. Can anybody confirm if this is true?
Thanks again for a wonderful site!
Mistress' comments : Same rumour 20 years ago... doubt it
i think its cool
Mistress' comments : Bless (:o))
Your web site is well set out (easy to browse) and extremely informative. We are considering joining family already living in Cyprus and your site has helped us find a lot of the information we are looking for. Mrs Woodward
My Mum is coming to stop at the Hotel Christofinia Nissi Bay, is it quiet ?? She is 60 odd and is coming for a relaxing holiday not to get out of her head !!!! I didnt realise she was going to be in Ayia Napa.
All comments welcome to SmithneilcarlaATaol.com
Hi, my boyfriend and I are visiting Paphos in the beginning of September for 2 weeks and are staying at The Coral Beach Hotel. Could you please give us your honest opinion of what the hotel is like and the surrounding area. Thanks
