We were pleasantly surprised with this 5* hotel. Although not in the main tourist centre it is just a short bus ride from the harbour bus station. The buses are every 10- 15 minutes and the last bus from the harbour leaves at midnight. Single fare 1 euro 50 cents. The hotel is right next to the Tombs of the Kings world heritage site. The hotel rooms are spacious with air con; balcony; tv; phone; hair dryer; safe; mini bar; coffee table; 2 wicker chairs and laminate flooring. The bathrooms are neat and practical- not flashy- with bath (including shower) basin; wc and bidet. The showers are powerful with nice hot water all of the time. Good sized wardrobe and plenty of drawer space. The reception area is very impressive and the staff speak good English and are friendly and helpful. There is a convenient shop selling useful items and daily newspapers. There are 3 restaurants and outside eating areas and a bar close to the pool which has a jucuzzi. The restaurants operate buffet style with good selection of hot and cold foods and desserts. The food is good and there is plenty of it with a different menu each day.
Outside there is an attended swimming pool; loungers and a public beach which fly the red flag as a caution to bathers about the strong currents. For those not wishing to purchase drinks from the hotel bar there is a new Lidl directly opposite that stocks a good variety of food and drink.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Venus- there was nothing that gave us cause to complain and it is one of the few hotels that we would choose to go to again.
Lidl is close by.
The bus stops are close by.
The Tombs of the Kings are close by.
Take a 4 way UK Mains extension lead with you as the rooms have just one power point and they use the same 3 pin plug as the UK.

Hotel very clean, staff very helpful. (Couldn't do enough)
Very quiet at start of week, 29th may, picked up by end.
Evenings boring as entertainment not up to much. (Bingo saved the day)
Wasn't keen on the 3 course all inclusive lunch which was a set meal, wasn't every day, but much better to go and help yourself instead of set meal.
Pool food wasn't all inclusive and we couldn't understand why? It would be a better option than a sitty down set menu in middle of the day.

The hotel is in no way 5 star!
I wouldn't recommend anyone to go all inclusive as the food is monotonous and very poor. The same choices were presented at lunch so that by the third day there was no need to look at the menu. There was no kiddie menu; there were very young children in the party and a choice of pasta or chips from the adults menu just wasn't suitable. After booking all inclusive for the last two years I was very disappointed, especially after having recommended this package to friends who were on the same holiday. Needless to say our party ate out a lot of the time.
Arriving on a Sunday evening we were given a welcome drink and told that we would have to pay for drinks until 10am the following day so presumed our 7 days all inclusive would include all day the following Sunday - not so, despite being at the hotel all day on the 7th day we were told the all inclusive was limited to breakfast with juice / coffee and lunch (not that we could face another lunch at the Venus) with water or a glass of wine, all other drinks should be paid for.
On a positive, although the rooms are due a refurb they were clean and well kept by the domestic team.
The hotel shop prices are very competitive - cheaper than the souvenir shop over the road. There is also a Lidl over the road which came in handy for supplementing the kiddies diet.
615 bus into Paphos is only a euro for trips to the harbour.
What you get is what you pay for if this was a 3 star hotel.
Can recommend the Chinese with the red lanterns (Chloe's??) and The Stone Grill bar on opposite side of the road and a value for money cafe round the corner from the grill, the Devonshire.
Safari quad bikes and buggies just past KFC - 4hrs fun and sight seeing for 50-70 euros depending on vehicle.

The Venus Beach is ready for a upgrade; a Good 3 Star or an average 4Star
Very Clean; Staff polite and well turned out.
Breakfasts only just and Drinks expensive.
Booked a late check out for 35 Euros and asked if that gave us a change of towels The receptionist replied Yes; but no clean towels were provided.
Old fasioned room keys only one provided I asked for two keys and was told only one is normal, please hand it in before going out, just a pain.
To many Cats wandering about when eating outside
Fantastic sea front walk to Pathos town
Great row of bars and shops directly opp the Hotel Cheap Drinks and good Food
Edward from Newport Pagnell
Very pleasant stay in September - not too busy but not quiet.
Well located (although the hotel beach is a bit poor compared to the rest of the island's beaches), several reasonable restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. A 1€ bus to Paphos harbour is recommended, however it gets very full and doesnt always stop!!!
I was B&B so can only comment on breakfast which was plentiful and of good quality.
Evening entertainment in the hotel seemed minimal but as Paphos town is only 10 minutes away this wasn't a problem.
