I wonder did anyone stay in the Green Bungalow Apartments in Ayia Napa. What were they like and were they situated conveniently in the area. Anxiously awaiting on your views. Thank you!
Found your site while looking for Estate Agents in Cyprus. We are looking for a reasonably priced property to live and where we can keep our pets. I think your site is very informative we have really enjoyed it. Many thanks
Brilliant site and really easy to use. My husband and I are looking to retire to Cyprus and this site is providing all the information, help and contacts we need. Thanks a lot Chris Brown U.K.
Dear all, I think your site is excellent it cuts through all the usual 'bull' that you get on more boring conservative sites and I feel almost like a local reading it!

Great web site! Visiting Paphos next week. I have a teenage son who is skating/skateboarding mad. Is there a skate park or any facilities over there for this please? Quick reply please as not many days left. Thanks. Lesley
Mistress' comments : Not as such, but my kids skate on the seafront promenade. The Cypriots are very kid friendly and so it is not only acceptable here for kids to have good clean fun, but smiled upon.
2018 Update. All has changed, we joined Europe. Now the police are called and kids are expected, like everyone else to spend money to have fun.
my email address is oshea_karenATyahoo.com
Could you possibly send me details on the TSOKKOS Apartment in Ayia Napa at your earliest convenience.
We will visit Ayia Napa for one week at the beginning of September. Is it expensive? Value for money?
Love the website by the way!
I love Cyprus. It's the place to be. It's hot, the beaches are the best and the night life is out of this world.
Information readily available from live operators-keep up the good work.
it is ok but there should be more information, it is too brief. there should also be more information on the history of Ayia Napa.
Mistress' comments : We do work round the clock to do this and that - we will try to make it a that, but basically Ayia Napa was a small fishing village 20 years ago.
Live in Nicosia 1970-72, loved it!!!!!!!! Wonderful place full of wonderful people. To Andreas Zavros and Beba, I miss you. Paul Eisenhauer zusnpaulATmsn.com
What a fabulous and most informative site you have here!! As a Brit living in
the U.S.A. I will be making my annual trip home to see my family, but this year's
pilgrimage comes with an unexpected, but very welcome twist, as my sister has
booked me a trip to Cyprus while I'm there in June! You're site was such a gem
to find and I've never been more excited to go home! Melanie Miedlar, Dearborn
Heights, Michigan, U.S.A.
09/02/2002 To George Allen who would like to what the climate is like in winter there is only one word with out being rude FREEZING...............have fun Regards COSTAS....
09/02/2002 I really love Cyprus It was my first time there last year in August. My mum is from Farmaka and my farther is from Larnaka. The website you guys have created is excellent my only disappointment was I could not find Farmaka. Please do not take this the wrong way your site covers a lot of Cyprus I never knew there was so much to see and do. Well Done and Thanks for sharing Cyprus with the rest of the world.
Dear Sir/Madam, Nice to see very informative site. But I couldn't get one information I was looking about one telecom company in Cyprus. Its ITOPNITE Corporation Ltd, in Limassol. I am looking for some detailed information about the company. I would be grateful to you if you provide the needful at gorpranavAThotmail.com
Thanks and regards.
Mistress' comments : Only telecom co we know is CYTA which has a monopoly.
Cyprus: Sagapo - Ich liebe dich - I love you!!!!!!!
Brilliant site, I'm recommending it to all my 'dreaming of a better life' pals, still struggling in the UK. If you like Pafos and want to know more, I know most of what there is to know; the A-Z of moving from UK, doing business here and enjoying yourself in the process. You won't regret being in touch, promise!
Hi There, I think it is a great site, but you put some links in for proper shops where it is possible to find out the prices of Real things, like TV's, Furniture, Clothes etc: I am on a fact finding mission for my Sister-in-Law who is moving to Cyprus in roughly 10 weeks time, and she wishes to know if it is worth the trouble shipping out home electronics or if is more feasible to buy them when she arrives.
Keep up the good work, it is by far the best Cypriot site I have found.
Mistress' comments : Well prices are a strange phenomena - shop around a bit and they change. We are however a commercial organisation and so would welcome advertisers who offer good value in any field .. at www.cyprus-shopping.com or on here.
Hello Would just like to say this is the first time I have visited your site I think its great, but not the first time I have visited Cyprus, about 10 times to the Ketsios in Protaras BRILLIANT keep up the good work M Diston Coventry West Midlands

This is the first time I had the honour of visiting this site. I found it informative and interesting. I met a new love in Cyprus and was curious as to what your country is like. I live in Canada and not sure if I will be able to visit your nice country. I hope to some day if I ever get over the fear of flying:) Take care and keep up the good work. I love this site Marion Y
I have been using the net for 2 years and I must say that I am very impressed with the layout and contents of this site. Why? because it is easy to navigate and makes me want to search for more information. Even though I have only visited the site for an hour I know I will call again, especially to read the article on " leather " - so well written...and easy to follow... written to keep the reader captivated..... Well done !!!! Warren ( warrenathomeAThotmail.com ) London UK
Super site. Hadn't seen this site before I visited. Was in Larnaca and Ayia Napa summer 2001 for the first time and found the people friendly and helpful and the island itself beautiful. Will return sometime using info from this site as a basis for a touring holiday. Cyprus isn't just about the beer you know!!!
Really good... very informative and easy to navigate
I HAVE JUST READ THE COMMENT ON FLUSHING PAPER DOWN THE LOO. UNTIL THE NEW SEWERAGE SYSTEM BEING LAID AT THE MOMENT IS IN FULL OPERATION I DON'T KNOW OF ANYWHERE UNLESS YOU HAVE YOUR OWN PRIVATE SEWAGE PLANT THAT YOU CAN FLUSH PAPER. IT GETS STUCK IN THE SYSTEM AND UNFORTUNATELY THE HORRENDOUS SMELL COMING FROM AROUND SOME TOURIST APARTMENTS CONFIRMS THAT PEOPLE WILL INSIST ON TRYING TO FLUSH IT. DO US ALL A FAVOUR AND PUT IT IN THE BIN PROVIDED. ITS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK. XRISTOS
PS regarding the comment on flushing toilet paper I can confirm that most places, if not all in Cyprus, you can flush particularly in the "Blue Crane Hotel Apts"
Hi, I would like to include my few comments on the island of Cyprus quickly. I visit the island yearly and this year I just came back from Limassol. People are great, weather is even better and we stayed at the Blue Crane Hotel apartments, which I would highly recommend, especially if you have a family.
It's great to have a sight that you can put your comments down freely.
I am really grateful for you site, I just keep coming back because I keep missing bits! I am looking here because I am going to Cyprus with my boyfriend next July and we are really excited, I would really like to know what Paphos is like if anyone can help me. Thanx, ps the website is excellent!
No offense, but what's the use in this website? I couldn't find anything but
comments comments comments. Maybe I just don't know computers well enough!
We, as a family with 2 children, are thinking about moving to Cyprus. We would really welcome advise from anyone on life there - schools, university, community life, housing, jobs, etc.
Thank you. John and Mona McNicholas
I think it is a very good site it makes you wont to go or look forward to your holiday fare play Lisa Dublin.
I had a wicked time the best holiday by far. Such a relaxed atmosphere everybody's so friendly ! The clubs are heavy as are the beaches .Definitely going back next year can't wait. Loads of luv charlotte xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Me and all my mates went to Ayia Napa last August and we had a wicked time, the night life is amazing and the beaches are unbelievable hopefully we will be back there nxt August cant wait - Stacy xxx
Loved it, great people, great weather, great food.
Hi all, went to Ayia Napa my 3 best pals on 25 June - 9 July (or 10th coz we got delayed going home!) Just wanted to say had the best time of my life out there (apart from falling off a moped at 5am!) We stayed in the Tsokkos apartments. If anyone stayed there at the same time and wants to get in touch e-mail me on: NickywalkAThotmail.com
I am doing advance planning on a trip to Nicosia to attend the Cyprus Kennel Club's weekend dog shows in March. I have made note of your import info, and the vet phone. Very helpful, thank you! I will contact the Cypriot embassy in Wash DC for further information, and perhaps they will even have the forms that can be mailed to me from within the US. If you have anyone, or know of anyone connected with the Kennel Club, I would truly certainly appreciate being put in contact with them. I am so looking forward to visiting Cyprus, and am glad that at least for now, you are NOT part of the EU since importation is going to change drastically WRT the 6mos. rabies quarantine from outside the EU countries. I would not have even considered coming to Cyprus if that were the case. Fantastic to get in 'under the wire'! thank you for your help! Susan Patterson email: calypsobasenjisAThotmail.com
We got married in Ayia Napa in early oct, the people of this beautiful island were great!!!.Hope to be back soon (possibly to stay (when Cyprus is part of the eu)). Cyprus is the BEST!!. ANDY & NICHOLA PARR ENGLAND. Ps,the website isn't bad either!!!

I've been to Ayia Napa in September, and I wonder if i can get the telephone number, the email or any other means of communication to a night club called "Moulin Rouge" in Ayia Napa it is located in the street under the square, about 300meters after McDonalds.
p.s any info about the club can be great.

Hello, I will be visiting Cyprus on the 17th October, Im really looking forward to it, especially since visiting your website, I must say I didn't think much of Cyprus in the holiday brochure but your site has really made me realise I'm going to have a fab holiday! Many thanks, Shelagh Whitehead: UK
the senator apartments in Ayia Napa are a dive and the security guard is a miserable twat and can only say "no no & reception £25" so if you go don't make a noise or come in pissed as it will rush you £25 pound each time P.S AYIA NAPA is TANGFASTIC
I like your your games.
If you have been to the Odessa hotel in Protaras in the last few weeks please
could you apply your comments to this website. Marie

as good in oct as may will be well pleased cheers. email us at lynnesteve69AThotmail.com
Great site. (You're getting used to reading that, yes?) A couple of quick Qs:
2. The trucker bloke who has a moan about half-way down this page says that food over there is rubbish; I often get 'Delhi belly' when travelling abroad, so should I expect to experience particularly harsh sessions on the lav while in Cyprus? Mistress' comments : The food is great as long as it is not in tourist trap horrible place. Just go in and smell, it is usually a good indication.
Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.
Really good and responsible work!!!!
I found your page while I was searching for historical facts in Cyprus. It was very informative. Good job. May Peace and Harmony prevail to enjoy the wonders of our planet.
Christos Marinakis, Long Island New York
Could you please tell me if there is anyone that will answer people on here I have been waiting for an answer to some questions for over a week now Thank you
Mistress' comments : No, this page is updated when I have time, (not often), the only unanswered question I have seen (and deleted) was where is portaras !! and is there a space on it. Maybe you mean Protaras. It is next to Ayia Napa.
A very nice, well laid out, informative site. It is the intention of my partner and I to visit soon with a view to living in Cyprus when funds permit. I will make a point of seeking you out when we visit in 2002.
This is one brilliant site, which must have taken a huge effort to establish let alone maintain. I have spent literally hundreds of hours in recent months. surfing various country sites in an endeavour to find somewhere to visit with a view to moving there. Your site sets a standard others should strongly consider following.
Again well done
Michael G Green Hong Kong
possibly going to Ayia Napa in late October - have heard the place will be
half shut - is this right and if so are Paphos and or Limassol any better?
We are going to Ayia Napa in October Could you please tell me what the weather will be like then and what is the price of food like as we are self catering. My children aged 15 and 13 also want to go somewhere where they can dance. Can you tell me where the best place is to take them.
Ur matter on Cyprus is very decorative, hope the place is as interesting....
im going to Napa for the first week of October with 8 other Irish lads. I want
to know what is the tsokkos apartments like and will their still be many people
about? were hoping 4 a major party!!!
Went to Ayia Napa this year with 6 friends and it was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!! stayed in efi apartments with sunscape and the reps were brilliant, especially Jonty!!!!
Looking for an apartment / villa in Protaras with 3 bedrooms to rent for ONE YEAR. Can anybody help/advise me of any contacts. Thank you
we are going in September 16th are the clubs going to be open still
I like the fact that you are concerned about the people checking you out, I'm sure it motivates you to work harder.
Sincerely, just read 'em too
First time in Cyprus, We will stay for 2 weeks in Agya Napa starting late October. 5 adults and 2 kids. Please give us some advice about where to go and what to do. We suppose we can hire a car large enough for all of us? Any hint about best car hire option? I appreciate any answer to stenkvistATtelia.com
i think that the idea of having the site operators is great as it gives you
chance to ask them questions instead of sending people emails and waiting for a
reply. Good work. Bye Kim, UK
yeah its good
Thank you for a wonderful site - we were suffering from withdrawal symptoms after visiting Cyprus in may 2001, but now we can return whenever we please through your website! We went on a holiday, but got much more! We made wonderful friends, and have unforgettable memories. We will be back soon.
Graham & Noel Serretta - London
i think this web page is well set out but hard to understand
I have just come back from Ayia Napa, and i am pleased to say i had a f***ing awesome time, more bars and clubs than i managed to tour in the two weeks i spent there, and more than enough things to do to pass the days away. The food had to be the only downside to Cyprus, after a week of sampling the local food i just resorted to KFC and Pizza Hut, other than that it has got to be the best holiday i have ever been on, beats Ibiza hands down.....
Yep. It's very difficult to navigate. I sat for 20 minutes waiting for it to go to the page I wanted: nothing happened. Then I discovered that if I used the rodent on its little pad and clicked on one of the (almost) alphabetically sorted options I was swiftly transported to the appropriate page. Once I'd realised that you had not embraced telekinetics, I had (and have had for a number of years) a great tour of my favourite land.
Experts, experts. Who needs 'em.
Keep up the good work.
PS Your navigation feedback link doesn't
I am visiting Cyprus In late November and had a couple of questions:
1. Will the weather still be decent? 2. Will Ayia Napa still be lively or will it be like a ghost town?????
Thanks for your help!! Maria_FurnessAThotmail.com
Mistress' comments : November may be slightly chilly and yes, a little ghostly...sorry.
I would like to know what television system is in use in Cyprus. Will a uk play station work there.
Mistress' comments : Pal !?!
Thinking of a family holiday in Mid March what will the weather be like ?
how hot will it be? will the kids be able to swim in an outside poll? Thanks
I used to live in Cyprus when I was younger, so I find this web-site brilliant, keep up the good work!
hello does anyone know of a CAR HIRE company that would hire a car to an UNDER 21, 20 to be exact. Any suggestion please to elizabethbohanAThotmail.com before the 11th Aug.
Mistress' comments : No, sorry, car hire is 23 years old and older.
Hi I really like's your Cyprus site, it's easy to navigate and lot of interesting to read Cheers from Sweden Erik visit my homepage to see about my UN-duty and vacations on the lovely island of Cyprus w1.620.telia.com/~u62003510

Is there a website for the Cyprus Government? I would like to get some info

informative sites I have visited. I return to it again & again. Ian

Hi. My name is Anthony. I am 25 years old, gay, and from the U.S. visiting Ayia Napa for the first time in December 2001. I'd like to meet some interesting people and even make new friends. Please don't hesitate to e-mail me at trad24ATyahoo.com .
Liked it but couldn't stay too long because my computers a bit slow and its driving me mad. I'll come back when I've upgraded my system. tclarke11AThotmail.com
hi, what a fantastic site you have here, really well done to you, got some
great info, we will be there on 29/7/01, staying in anthea apartments, anyone
got any ideas on keeping the kids happy :--) thanks Michelle
your page sucks. if you want people to entertain people then you have to put
nude pictures on your site. get with the times.
Hi, i am seriously thinking of holidaying in Cyprus this year in September, although i am planning to go by myself, so was thinking about staying in a Youth Hostel as it is cheap and a good way to meet people. My only problem is that I really want to stay in Ayia Napa as it sounds like a wicked place to party as well as relax and unwind. Are there any Youth Hostels in Ayia Napa, or something like that.
Mistress' comments : There are no youth hostels I'm afraid.
My fiancé and I are taking a Mediterranean Cruise for our honeymoon in
September which stops in Limassol for a day. What do you think would be the best
sights to see in just one day? We prefer not to take the ship's tours and would
rather go it ourselves or hire a local taxi driver to show us around. Thank you
in advance for any comments. Your sight has been very useful. Mick & Carmen.
Wonder if you can put my mind at ease - coming to Ayia Napa in December staying
at pavlo Napa - it won't be full of clubbers at that time of year will it?
Thanks! email is maria.mcdadeATastrazeneca.com
Just wondering about the Faros hotel in Ayia Napa, has anyone stayed there...??? We are going over there in August 2001 and I was just wondering is Ayia Napa as mad as everyone makes out or is there quieter places we can go at night time to escape from the madness..? Any info would be great..!!
I would rather be ravished by a large Mexican than visit again.
I think the site is brilliant especially if your going to Cyprus and want to know more about places to visit and see.
what short of dress code is it for clubs n pubs in Ayia Napa and Protaras??
shorts? shoes? trainers????
comment::- quite apart from thinking you're doing a GREAT job - perhaps you
might consider subjecting submissions to the "love/hate" forum to a
valid email address :-/ that cuts out some of the weeding work :-)
hi - 2 years ago i was planning a trip to the middle east, via Cyprus, and got some sound advice from this site's web mistress - thus, bookmarked the page ....... still think it is one of the few sites monitored with a heart! on this www
now - am about to take the trip back (by the end of June 01), but haven't found a better place to ask some burning questions:-
is there a way to get from Cyprus to turkey, on a ferry? is there a ferry connecting Cyprus with Egypt? is there an option of ferries from Haifa to Cyprus, apart from Poseidon and salamis??
the point being, am dead-set on camping-on-deck ...... not only because it was a wonderful experience on the way to Haifa, but also because we (2 adults + 2 kids) also have a small dog, who just wouldn't like it any other way
from Jordan (where we are) it would be easy to get to Egypt ...... however - cannot find a connection offering camping-on-deck facility from Alexandria, or port said, to any European port
it is equally easy to get to Haifa, but again, monopoly reigns ..... there seems to be only Poseidon and salamis out of there, who both decided camping-on-deck wasn't sufficiently profitable (?)
there appears to be a wonderful camping-on-deck facility from cesme (turkey) to Italy, which would work great, if only there was a way to cesme!! ....... i.e., a reasonable (ferry) connection from Cyprus (Limassol/Nicosia?) to turkey mainland - can you help??
with best regards - wen
Ayia Napa f***ng fantastic Protaras okay Paralimni and Nicosia I hate
Job done!! Rockafella's DJ in Protaras Summer 2001

Mistress' comments :That's why we want it back (:o))
An excellent site, easy to navigate and packed with relevant information. Well done.
Your food guide was particularly useful as I have a severe gluten intolerance and need to know the exact ingredients of dishes before I try them.
Are there any restaurateurs near Polis who understand gluten intolerance?
a pretty informative site, nice one !! We the Burns's from Brighton are off to Ayia Napa 22/6/01, for my birthday (39), staying at the Vasiliana tourist apartments- any information would be welcome, what is the average price of a pint and a meal for two?? Will my two kids Kirsty (15) and Rachel (9) like the atmosphere of Ayia. Has anyone ever heard of Eurocypria, our airline, I hope it's a good 'un. Cheers Mick & Linda. Mickburns1ATexcite.com
I was referred to this site by a friend, I have found it to very informative and well laid out. Great pics and a variety of links to choose from. Although I have not visited Cyprus, this site has persuaded me more to visit and recommend others to visit the site and go to Cyprus.
Thank You, Angela
Brian (From TO)
I would also like it if you could tell me average price of meals and drinks in and around Ayia Napa. My E-MAIL address is poldark_1978AThotmail.com thank you.
I'm searching for water parks in Limassol. i heard there are two of them, but i can't seem to find anything about one, not Fasouri. you could have info on these as well...
very nice the end part, where there are highlighted word, which are hyperlinks, it would be better if they were in alphabetical order.
only been here a few moments and it's been more useful than a whole afternoon of browsing other sites.
Mistress' comments : Aw shucks... thanks.
does anyone know anything about the green bungalow apartments? me and my
mates r going from the 18th of July.
There is a water park in Geroskhpou area, 10 minutes from Paphos Center or from Kato Pafos. Its easy to find it. Just ask local people :)
cpheenanAThotmail.com could you please reply with the average price for drinks, breakfast, meals, in Irish pound for the area around Ayia Napa.
Mistress' comments : More than elsewhere, but about C£6 a meal, C£2 a beer.
Hi I like this site and it is very useful, I am going to Paphos in Cyprus
next week and wondered if you could give me any information about the water
there and where. To contact me my email address is LAPRAS02AThotmail.com and would
be very delighted if you did that before I go on holiday if not it doesn't
matter we will just have to find our own way. p.s. can you do scuba diving?
Hi...thanks for a really good site...very useful. We have just got back to the UK after 2 weeks at the Christofinia hotel near Nissi beach. We have had a really good holiday but it could have been a great holiday if there hadn't been so many little things that continually "knocked the shine" off everything. The hotel was very good and we both enjoyed driving around the island...the new motorways are excellent. But why do the Cypriots insist on leaving everything half finished...pull off the motorway and see what I mean!! Take an early evening stroll around Agia Napa...wear sensible shoes, also carry an ice axe and 100 metres of climbing rope...there are holes in the pavement you could hide a bus in. You will also need an oxygen mask...not for the altitude but because of the habit of the local loonies who continually drive around and around the town centre in their pick-ups...paved areas are no go zones for pedestrians. just scooters and cars!! I took my wife to the incredibly romantic Aphrodite's Rock and we gazed in wonder at the incredibly romantic rusting 50 gallon oil drums and sheets of roofing plastic that some thoughtless tourist had left behind.( nearly as romantic as the sea caves at Cape Grecko...you cant miss them, they are right next to the municipal rubbish dump ) Whilst there we decided to have a snack at the adjoining cafe...wow!!! we met Dick Turpin`s only relative in Cyprus...at least good old Dick had the decency to wear a mask when he was robbing people...£CYP 3.80 for 2 small glasses of orange juice and 1 doughnut. Food....typical of Cyprus....we ate in 16 different restaurants and would not recommend any one of them. Before I am accused of being some Hedonistic Gourmet, I would just like to say that I am a truck driver and am used to some of the worst food that the culinary world can offer but Cyprus seems to have perfected the art of taking perfectly good, wholesome food and reducing it to something resembling the contents of a babies nappy. Try the chefs special at the Yolanda restaurant in Platres...a miracle akin to changing wine into water. The chef must have done his training at Wind scale...how he managed to conjure up his speciality is beyond my comprehension...it is also beyond the laws of physics and chemistry. Take one piece of perfect chicken....carbonize on the outside...yet leave the inside still frozen and raw...eat your heart out Keith Floyd. Better still go to Markos near the Harbour in Agia Napa...order a chicken salad...examine closely...if yours is as good as mine I think you will agree that a good vet would be able to get the chicken up and running and laying eggs in less than an hour! I say chicken but with the dust from the road works blowing everywhere, it could have been something scraped off the front of my truck...these are the same road works that I nearly fell in the last time we came to Cyprus 16 months ago...we are not talking M1 or M6 just a little road island next to the shops by the harbour. we did see a JCB and a grader but I think they had been brought out to get a sun tan! As I said we did have a decent holiday and most of the people we met were super...check out the Square pub....Tony the singer is the best comedy act ever...an unintentional cross between Les Dawson and the guy with the knackered mic ( forget his name)...the waiters are brill....Bam Bam at the Bedrock...knock-out!! great night out if you have got kids.( even better for us...ours are now grown up !!) To be honest we did have a good holiday and Cyprus is a beautiful island but the CTO should realise that you cannot keep taking. you need to put something back. Otherwise Cyprus will end up like Blackpool in the UK...DIRTY TATTY AND A STANDING JOKE. I know that the main source of income for Cyprus is tourism but neglecting the infrastructure and encouraging the "Ibiza Uncovered" type of visitor is a very dangerous concept. I am a 50 year old retired electronics engineer who drives a truck purely for pleasure and to pay for holidays and I love the island of Cyprus but I cannot see my wife and I returning because of the all pervading atmosphere of "lets rip them off now while the going is good" For the past 20 years we have been on holiday to the US and the Caribbean but once our 2 children had left home we decided to try somewhere different... and Cyprus was our first choice. If you are going for the first time then we wish you well...we hope you have a great time. please take these comments as just our experiences. yours may be better...we might just have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Since sitting down to write this...its sunny outside but it isn't Nissi beach sunny...my attitude has changed...I was going to write some vitriolic things but I keep thinking about the good parts....and to be perfectly honest, they far out weigh the negative aspects....... To quote General Mc Arthur and to paraphrase that Austrian actor....." I will return / be back"
Mistress' comments : A wonderful and charitable letter that points out with care some of our shortcomings. Please do some reviews for us ?
HI I AM A STUDENT IN BRADFORD CURRENTLY UNDERTAKING MY A LEVEL TRAVEL AND TOURISM EXAM ON AYIA NAPA. I WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD SEND ME SOME BASIC INFORMATION ON WHY TOURISM DEVELOPED IN AYIA NAPA, WHO DECIDED TO DEVELOP, AND THE OBJECTIVES OF THE DEVELOPERS CONCERNED.
Mistress' comments : Why, because the beaches are good, and Famagusta was lost. Who ... entrepreneurs, ... objectives... money.
It's indeed the best presentation page of Cy.
I've seen the most of them, this is really good. Congratulations. M.O.
Please tell me that you do not have to put toilet roll in a bin. That's why I
did not want to go to the Greek Islands. We are staying in the Blue Crane
Apartments in Limassol. Please tell me its not true. Sorry, yes I am really
Your website is really very good. I'm enjoying reading and gathering information. I lived in Cyprus from 1988 to 1993. I am now helping my granddaughter write a paper on the country of Cyprus and your site is extremely helpful. Tana Ewing
i hate your site
Hi! Really nice site, thank You. I am Norwegian and going on holidays first time as a "single parent" with my nearly to be 10 years old. Is it OK to dine and wine out in the evenings with kids in Ayia Napa? Anything I should be aware of? Can he take a diving course? Looking really forward to this holiday. Thank for any comments/ideas.
I love your site you did a Great job thanks
What a brilliant site this is. I'm off to Cyprus in a little under 5 weeks and looking at the pictures on the site I can't wait. I'm looking out at torrential English rain at the moment, roll on those 5 weeks.
i like how you guys put your information in a way that seems as if you are the tourist. Just keep it simple like a tourist and maybe other kids like myself will get the picturesqueness of Cyprus.
Im am going to Cyprus at the end of the month (May) and I have heard that you can take a trip to Egypt for the day, is this true? Id be very grateful if you could tell me any info on such a trip, prices etc. Thanks Gina e-mail: gina.turnbullATraytheon.co.uk
Went on safari to kykkos monastery 5 May 2001, with New Horizons. Andreas is a great driver and tour guide. He took us round the Troodos Mountains, saw sight you would never find travelling by yourself. Had a delicious meze in Kilarni, with visit to winery. Wonderful wines, very cheap, boxed and travelled back to England very well. Went to Lefkara to see lace and filigree silver, wonderful! If I only had one day in Cyprus it would definitely be spent on this trip. Worth every penny.
Mistress' comments : See Andreas' trips at http://www.windowoncyprus.com/safari_tours_excursions_cyprus_trips.htm
I like the place, but I'm very disappointed about the people's don't care attitudes towards animals. I'm also a bit disappointed about the way the suburbs look - junk everywhere and nobody cares as to how nature's coping. As a South African, I'm used to a beautiful country, and lots of space and dogs!!
Mistress' comments We know how you feel Anaci, but it is getting better all the time.
I NEED TO SEE A ROAD MAP OF THE AREA RIGHT OUT SIDE THE RAF BASE. IT WAS A WONDERFUL ARE TO LIVE IN BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME OF THE AREA.
GREAT WEB PAGE. WOULD LOVE TO SEE MANY PHOTOS AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE DETAILED MAPS THAT ARE CLEAR.
liked your site going to Cyprus for the first time in June 2001 ..Larnaca ..Is there a problem with airport being near?
Mistress' comments Depends where you are staying, but generally I would say... no
My partner and I have just returned from a two week holiday in Cyprus and enjoyed it so much that we would like to look into the possibilities of working and living there on a short to long term basis. We would be grateful if you could provide us some basic information (or organisations that can provide this/web addresses etc) on job opportunities, cost of living, and anything else that may be relevant. Thanks in advance. The web site is great, very informative and useful. My email address is justine.knowlesATtotalise.co.uk
Just back from Cyprus this morning. Stayed in Ayia Napa...beautiful place and beautiful people. This web site has been excellent help to us and we were even able to hire a jeep for a few days by e-mail when in Cyprus. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Kim + Clare
i was most impressed on your web site. im off to Cyprus for the first time with my partner on the 9th of may 2001 and wanted some info. your website supplies all i needed to know and more!! well done keep up the good work. Sarah
Hi..! Im going away in a few weeks to Tsokkos beach hotel, Protaras. Do you have/know any info on this place..? If you do.. mailto:ciaransATorange.net
Going to Cyprus in June - staying at Ausonia Appts. in Protaras - can't find any site that shows me exactly where they are & how close to sea etc. Can anyone help? If so, contact me on ewalshATirish-times.ie I think this site is great - has something about everything - definitely the best I've found!
we are going to Cyprus in September and got some good information of your web site The Bradleys
Think the site is great. Have been going to Cyprus for years and never want to come home (even got married out there.) We have our own apartment in Limassol and would like to put it on your site could you send us information.
Karen & Nick
Me and a couple of lads are wanting to go on holiday somewhere but aren't really bothered about serious clubbing and that. We just want a bit of cheese, lots of beer and sun. Where does anyone recommend?
Mistress' comments : Cyprus ...lol
Anyone stayed at the Avenue Hotel Apartments, Larnaca recently - am going with a friend next week and can't find any info on the accommodation? And what's cool to do in Larnaca?
Mistress' comments : Come and see us of course !
Well I like your site! Anyone know the Golden Star Apartments in Protaras? Also any good ideas for avoiding mosquitoes - my sister's neighbour stayed in Fig Tree Bay and said she had to sleep with a sheet over her head! Any possibility of vegetarian restaurants in Protaras or Ayia Napa? Thanks.
Mistress' comments : We have 2 favourites. One is a small machine that you put a chemical pill into overnight, and my new toy is an electrified tennis racket that zaps them.
I am going to Ayia Napa at the end of May with some of my family but we are in separate hotels and I can't seem to find a site that shows us how far they are apart from each other. So if there is a site with a Cyprus map I would appreciate any information SpoggyATemailchoice.com
Hi! I'm a Finn and I have visited Cyprus twice. At the first time I was only 7 years old and remember almost nothing but the beautiful flowers (I disappeared many times because of picking them up and my mother had to look for me all the time...) Well, 16 years later I got married and we went to the honeymoon to Cyprus and just fell in love with the island. That was last autumn. Now we have booked our next holiday to Cyprus and it will took a place on November. This time we are taking 6 friends of ours with us!... Can hardly wait... I think your sites are very informative and wide.
nice site but o what is Cyprus playing at allowing channel 4 tv to make such a degrading documentary about a place (Cyprus) Agia Napa revisited that can only be described as a little piece of heaven on earth I really think your desire to become the next Spain type resorts for the youngsters could be one serious retro step
Mistress' comments : We agree.
We have contacted you by e-mail twice requesting information on how to advertise on your site and have had NO response. We have also used your 'chat window' which has been open for the last twenty minutes without receiving any response. If this is the standard of response you offer I don't know that advertising on your web site would be helpful to us, if we cannot get a response then no potential buyer would be able to either.
Mistress' comments : I have a sneaky feeling this may be the opposition ! We certainly answer all e mails and speak to scores of people a day in the live chat lines (manned from 9 am until about midnight) Why didn't you leave your e mail ?
We are looking at purchasing property for retirement in Cyprus but many of the properties seem to have been posted quite a while back. Do I take it that they haven't sold yet or are they not removed frequently enough ?
Can anyone tell me if it possible to purchase cheap return flights to and from Cyprus out of the main holiday season, as this will obviously have some bearing on our plans.
Thanks for the variety of information found within your site.
Cathleen Rowe ( London)
Mistress' comments : Yes we put the dates on the properties, but think this may be a mistake, as many people think they must be sold. We put a sold sign on when they are. See Getting Here the flights page for the options we know.
howdy do im an Irish fir and am wondering is there much to do around the green bungalow apartments...nearest pubs clubs and prices would b smashing....ohm nearly forgot your site is super duper.
Can you tell me where I can see a STREET map of Protaras I will be staying in
Ketsios Apartments and would like to know how near ( or far ) Panale Apartments
are. My parents are staying there at the same time as our holiday and it would
be nice to know if we could call them over to do a bit of babysitting!!!
i think this site is great, I have been to Cyprus twice and will be there again in June staying at the Napa prince apartments. The black horse karaoke bar in Ayia Napa is the best and the owner George is a really nice bloke. Check it out
FIRST TIME HERE. VERY INTERESTING. I WOULD LIKE INFO ON EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, ANCESTRY AND INFO ON VILLAGES. OTHERWISE EXCELLENT. REGARDS, NICO NICOLAOU, SOUTH AFRICA. E-MAIL ... NICOATWAM.CO.ZA
Hi I would like to hear from anyone who is going out to Ayia Napa this year, me and my best mate are going out on the 17th June '01 for 2 weeks and we are staying in the Senator Apartments. Also if anyone has any info on these apartments I would like to hear it. Cheers Marie xxxmariesdAThotmail.com
i thought it was really good as i love Cyprus been 3 times now but looking at this has told me things i didn't know from charlotte
What a fabulous Island, culture and best of all.... the people. We came to visit in 99 and we're coming back in 2001. We loved Protaras last time but this time we will meet the people of Paphos. Looking forward to some more of your superb diving facilities.
See you in August. The Sansom family (all 6 of us)
I hate having to leave my toilet paper in a bin. I think this is most highly unhygienic and I hated the waiters harassing me and chatting me up all the time. The room did not smell very fresh and my wardrobe had ants running in it.. not very happy.
Mistress' comments : Sorry you were not happy here. Paper the a bin should have been emptied every day ! Yes it takes a bit of getting used to. Sounds like you stayed in a bit of a dive...where was it?
I like your web site but what about spy kids uh. Thanks for technology for the kids. P.S. i am 9years old that's why i got words wrong.
Hi, I have been to Cyprus twice and going again in 4 weeks. I have to say that I found your web site really good and informative. I have completely feel in love with the country and its people and can't wait to go back.
Hi, just wanted to tell you that I think your site is wonderful! We visited the beautiful island of Cyprus in October 2000 and have left our hearts there! We stayed at the New York Plaza Apts in Paphos, very clean and a very friendly welcome from the Kyprianou family and all the staff [especially Petros the part time barman who my sixteen year old daughter fell in love with and now writes to, letter arrived from him today!] If you are staying self catering in Paphos or Kayo Paphos you MUST have a meal at Raffles. The food is wonderful and very reasonably priced and the staff are lovely. I can't wait for my next trip to your beautiful country. We are even talking of moving out there! Keep up the good work on the best website on Cyprus that I have found. Regards from C. Daltry
Dear WindowonCyprus, Your site is just great. We visit Cyprus 3-4 times a year, always to Larnaca if possible, but if not anywhere will do. The people, the atmosphere, the weather, what more can I say. We intend to retire to Cyprus as soon as possible. Your site has been an inspiration even though we have been to the island 16 times in the past 7 years. We are now looking for a property to buy. Keep up the good work and hopefully we'll find property via you, but I think you should advertise more properties (of all kinds) as there are many people in England who want to end their days on this beautiful island. Chris - Manchester, England.
Site is Ok - a little more on the presentation required though. The font used is not very professional. Its very hard to find info on Cyprus & especially on Ayia Napa, for the 20-25 yr old age bracket. More required on clubs and definitely more pictures showing the 3 major beaches.
Finally found THE web site of Cyprus! Lots of useful info & links - 1.000.000 X Thank You's! Me & my wife are going to spend an exchange year (08/01 - 06/02) in Cyprus and look forward to it; been there as a tourist but spending 10 months in Cyprus must give deeper experiences than a fortnight in a holiday resort... :-)
Liked the page. It's helpful to find such a variety of information on one sight. One thing I cannot find concerns long-term stays. I have a U.S. passport which, I gather allows me to enter and stay for several months - have forgotten for the moment how many. But I am interested in renting for a year and can't find info on how to handle that situation. Do I need prior approval of some sort, or what? I live in Portugal and we have no Cypriot consulate or embassy here. I'd also like to establish a bank account in Cypriot currency rather than continue to use credit cards, traveller's checks which are so expensive. But again haven't come up with any info. Do you have any answers/pointers. Any help would be appreciated - and even if you don't have the answers, your page is still great. Jack
Hello, Excuse my bad English... I'm going in Protaras in May, and the hotel

MC VILLE BARBRA IM STILL ERE. YOU WILL SEE VERY SOON HOW RETALIATION IS SWEET. PEOPLE LOOKING AT CYPRUS TO LIVE FORGET IT. IT HAS MORE CON ARTISTS THAN ENGLAND.
Mistress' comments : As Cyprus has a resident population only the size of one of the main towns in the UK, I find that hard to believe. So far we had allowed you to put the following comments
2/9/01 do not use mcville dry cleaners dromalaxia con artists
Please do not post any more hate on our site. It will be deleted.
First impressions are good. I have a lot of questions and favours to ask of some of your countrymen/women and the index looks pretty comprehensive. I am coming over with my daughter for a wedding in Paphos in November and I really want it to go well for her. So any advice form any quarter will be most welcome. Rich (England) tenbobATntlworld.com
What is wrong with you ?! (See comments below-dated 2/21/01) You have a
problem with every single white person in the world then? Well, that is sad. I
take it your life is so boring you have nothing better to do other than make
nasty comments about people ! Grow up !
f*** u white people
Love your web-site - it has given me a real insight into Cyprus and am now very keen to go there on holiday - bags are almost packed! We were concerned about the possibility of `trouble' due to the `green line' but site has reassured us - think it's a real shame though! One thing that would enhance the site no end is a map of Cyprus showing more than just main towns - having found the villa we'd like to stay in, we have no idea where it is as maps seem only very basic. However, keep up the good work - love the site! Passfield Family - Colchester
Mistress' comments : Have you seen the following http://www.cyprus-villas.com/road_map_of_cyprus.htm
Great site ! Can you tell me anything about the Vasiliana apartments in Ayia Napa please? Gina Mistress' comments : have a look on www.cyprus-hotels.com if they are not there then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and somebody should be able to help.
Great site. Very helpful.
good but would be better if you showed pics of the beach etc
sorry a like it
I hate it
Mistress' comments : Sorry you hate it. It would be helpful to know why though.
This is a great Site! Very informative, interesting, and creative! Hanna-student at the University of Malta
Madam/Sir Really enjoyed your site! We will be in Cyprus for two weeks in April 2001. We intend to spend one week in the East and one week in the West of the Island. We would like to have some information on apartment or B & B accommodation. Since we will have a rental car, an accommodation in the country with easy access to touristic sites would be ideal. Merci! Monique & Cléo from Canada Our e-mail address: beaudryATmondenet.com
I am arriving in October for two weeks holiday with my wife and I need a good
road map of Cyprus, we shall be touring with a hire car. So where can I get a
road map please ???? I can't see one for sale on your web site. Geoff Molineux
this site is absolute rubbish. it states everything wrong and all the information is wrong. get your facts straight first!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mistress' comments : Gratuitous rubbishing doesn't really count.. please give us an example?
yeah luv the politics page! 1955 struggle for independence etc etc and whoah look how we jump to 1974 when Turkey invaded! yep you're right nothing happened in the 11 years preceding '74. It was just a nice summer's day and Turkey had nothing better to do so they thought they'd go and take some of Cyprus to pass the time! that simple! typical, but i have seen worse sites. Never mind, there's no teaching old dogs new tricks.
Mistress' comments : As it happens, I think you are right. We had put an article on that was about the EU by someone from Limassol. We have now updated our politics page to reflect our views. See them here.
This website is SO cool, and we are going to Cyprus in march 2001 and we can't wait! Cyprus is so beautiful and this site shows us what to expect and it's great.
CONGRATULATIONS FOR A VERY INFORMATIVE SITE!!
This is an excellent site, easy to navigate.
Could you please solve a problem for us. We hope to travel to Paphos in Jan 2002 - yes Jan 2002, and want to know if the QUEENS BAY HOTEL Paphos is the same as the QUEENS BAY BEACH Hotel. Is this a new name? In our UK brochure we get HOTEL QUEENS BAY and on the booking info it comes back QUEENS BAY BEACH
Also could you let me have an E Mail address for the above hotel. HELP! s Thank

they are on e-mail. Their name is: John & Tasoulla Blenkin 25th Martiou

their e-mail address, if they have one? Thank you John Arlom
Mistress' comments : Glad we were able to put you in touch.
That is a great site, we were in Cyprus just a month ago, and we would like to go there one more time or maybe more. but the matter is that we would like to find job there, and not only rest. Who can help? Especially in Limassol!!! And only serious job, in hotel or tourism business.
Also everybody is welcome just to write.

Myself and 3 friends are off to Ayia Napa at the end of May 2001, we are staying at the Vasiliana apartments and I cant find any info on the place. I saw one comment about the apartments on a message board somewhere and I cant find it anymore, the comment wasn't all that good. I really need to know about this place. Any one have any info on this or just want to chat e-mail gina.turnbullATraytheon.co.uk . Love Gina
Great info on your web site. I stayed in Cyprus about 8 years ago and am researching now for my parents who are about to visit. My Dad's a keen birdwatcher, can anybody please tell me when the flamingos are in the salt lake at Larnaca? I'd love to visit again but it's a bit further from Melbourne (my home now) than it was from Dublin 8 years ago. Thanks, Aine Walsh
Just realised I should have included my e-mail address, anybody with information on the flamingos at the salt lake at Larnaca, please e-mail me richwalshATrelax.com.au Thanks, Aine Walsh
i would like to find out about the nightlife in Agia Napa is there any web pages relevant to this.

Mistress' comments You will love it.
Hello, my name is Stephen Pugh. I have booked a holiday for myself and my family to the Odessa Hotel in Protaras, for May, 2001. I have tried to search the internet for information on both the above, but info I have found is limited. Do you have any suggestions on where on the internet I may find the info, or do you have any details. I have found your info on food etc very useful, but any more info you can give ma would be most helpful.
Thanks and best regards
Mistress' comments Sorry Steve. I couldn't find it either !
It is a really good site, easy to use & informative.
Please help me with info on immigrating to Cyprus. We are British holders of EU passports currently living & working in Zimbabwe Africa. We have our own business in Zimbabwe - a garage/workshop & would like to know about the prospects of setting up the same type of business in Cyprus with a break-down towing facility. Do you think this would be viable. We noticed stranded vehicles on the motor ways when we were in Paphos at the beginning of Jan.
I am also into alternative health therapies & am a Reiki master, with diplomas in Psychotherapy, Holistic Healing & Numerology. I am currently studying for a diploma in women's health & would like to work in the alternative health field. Looking around when I was in Paphos I thought there was not much visibly available in these fields.
Please send me details on touring/motoring in Cyprus. Maps, quality of roads etc. We will be based in Limassol.

Very helpful and informative site to find out all of the different things you need to know for your holiday. We are going to Cyprus next week and know how much a car will be to hire, what the temperature will be and where to go to find out about all of the activities which we like to do. We are looking forward very much to our holiday and your site helped us to make our mind up which Mediterranean Island to visit this year. Keep up the good work, your site is really great. Jan, England.
Ilove cyprus!!!!! I think that best place is agia Napa !!! AND BEST BAR IS BLACK&WHITE!!!!!!!
We're going to Pernera this year and would appreciate any comments/info from people who've visited - location/tips etc

Mistress' comments Actually your site is very funny
Ayia Napa is a top place to go there is something for everyone. things for kids teens adults and senior citizens. With plenty of sun sea sand children's entertainment and fantastic nightlife everyone seems to have a good time. I went this year for the first time and I've already started saving to go back next year.
I am disabled and we decided at the last minute that we needed a break. The Tourist Office were very helpful. I then came onto your site & have compiled a small booklet so we can take with us. This will be the fist holiday we both take alone together for 26 yrs. So we are really looking forward to it. Please if anyone has any information about Cyprus please post your notice. Thank you.
Hello There, Smashing site! I arrived at this website in search for working in Greece or Cypress for summer 2001.

I loved your site. I myself am a disgruntled teen who is looking for something to believe in. I think that I have found it in stoicism. Keep up the good work. Sincerely, John Martin (16, U.S.)
I'm an American who vacationed in Cyprus in 1997. I did not care for the animosity towards Americans. Perhaps the Cypriots can put their money where their mouths are and refuse the millions of dollars of aid that we provide. The beaches are marginal at best, littered with cigarette filters. Water service was terminated every other day due to inadequate reserves. A truly third world middle eastern experience. It is not like Europe in any way.
i am 20 years old from Bulgaria, Plovdiv. my name is Tanya. i love Cyprus and the people. I have been there 3 times so far and it's great!! This is a cute site too! Keep it up! my e-mail is tanya_bgATyahoo.com I would be glad to respond to any messages. :-) dovizhdane!
Cyprus, changed for the better or worse?
Being an "oldie" I did my military service in Cyprus some 30+ years ago and remember the days of no real roads, just dust tracks to get down to the beaches, and finding the ubiquitous "Jack's bar or Ally's kebab house" out in the middle of nowhere. -Fond memories. The damned car would always boil over somewhere about Agros, and making it to Troodos was more luck than judgement. at least we could bump start it and roll back down. God, the fruit. Quality which we never saw in UK. Peaches which dripped enough juice to ruin a shirt.
A couple of years ago we went back, and it was quite a surprise to find that (what appeared to be) most of the lovely expanse of open beaches were now covered with non-stop hotels from Limassol to Famagusta.
I remember when Limassol was 500 meters across, and we drank Keo and ate salted nuts on the pier outside the Yellow House, watching the blacksmith shoe a horse, and an old man sat on the kerb making a "shaffing dish" fake Lebanese artwork. Perhaps he was Lebanese. Progress I guess, but the dreaded burger bars and fizzy beer culture of the young European holidaymaker seems to have taken its toll quite badly in Cyprus. Even the white sands of Nissi beach on which I used to roll up in a sleeping bag and watch the sun come up, is now covered in concrete and sun beds. For those who are used to Magaluf and Manumision it must seem like heaven !
Having heard about noisy Ayia Napa, I elected to get as far up the coast as possible, hopefully to where the concrete ran out and the culture began. We stayed in a low rise apartment in Protaras and my wife thought the weather and beaches were wonderful. But still the dreaded burger. Well, to be truthful there were more dishes, but all seemed to be trying to emulate the European styles of cookery, and the steaks were rubbish.
So, one afternoon I set off up the coast, left the hotels behind and spotted a rattan covered area with oil cloths on the table, and plenty of smoke. Large rotund gentleman with apron smelling permanently of kebab look amazed when i took a seat, and the Haggipavlu and ouzo started to flow. I asked him where the kleftico was, more as a joke than anything else, and he offered to crack the clay over if I cam back with my family at about 9.30 that evening. We did, wonderful food, wonderful company, cold beer, just what I remembered. Mezze's kebabs, it all came back. After a week of this, we turned up one evening and found the place jumping. Dozens of people eating and drinking, additional family members pressed into service as waiters and I though S*** there goes our dinner.
We were waived over by a couple of faces that were vaguely familiar, who had kept seats for us. I asked them were they were from, one said from our hotel! They had seen us disappearing off each evening and coming back well oiled, so they followed us to see where we went.
The old boy came over, and whispered that if I stayed till they all went, then the oven would just be at a nice temperature to eat, and this time we could meet the extended family. We did.
What's the point of this ramble ?
The real food is still there, the friendship is still there and just as real be it Greek or Turk. You just have to trawl around a bit to break through the skin of commercialism that has covered most of the island. - Ok so you don't agree? then try and convince me that there are no German towel throwing tourists visiting the island this year.
Can't resist it, we have just booked two weeks in July at a S/C in Protaras, this time the twins are old enough to come with us and we can show them most of the island. Is it possible to visit Kyrenia or is that still a no no ? I wonder if the old boy is still there ......... Best Regards, Tony elkin telknATaol.com

I was in Protaras in Aug/Sept this year and loved it. Want to come back as soon as possible, the Cypriots are lovely, welcoming people and I hope to see all the friends I made very soon.
I come from Cyprus ,Limassol to be frank and now that I've been away from it I realise how amazing it really is. It's the best place for summer holidays. lelia
I like our web site,that most be the best site I have seen. thanks for a good site I love it. Stefan
"We are thinking of having a short break soon but have been told that as we have been to turkey and had our passports stamped we would not be allowed into Cyprus. Is this true?"
No, it's not true. As far as your passports are not stamped by the illegal, so-called "authorities" of the occupied areas.---
Turk, you spoke about "brain washing". This what your msg is all about! Too bad, you had no luck :-)
I used to live in Cyprus....seeing all this just makes me miss it even more than I already do. I want to go back and visit sooooo bad! Anyone know any cheap airlines from the states?
I was in Ayia Napa this summer and it was absolutely amazing. It was so hot every day and the people were lovely. The nightlife is the best and I am going again in 2001. 100 times better than Ibiza!!!

I spent 5 weeks touring Cyprus and will return, although I am looking for George Papadopoulos from Polis whom I met and would be grateful if you could send me his office phone number in Polis as I want to rent accommodation from him for next year He is also an Advocate if this will help. Thank you very much Ian Maguire Glasgow Scotland
I went to Limassol in august and i have never had such a great time!! If u ever go there, visit watermania. Its fantastic!! The best pubs/clubs are in the Yermosoyia area, Its a wicked place, Money penny's is the place to be!! Carolyn*
a message for the Turk who wrote about the Greeks. you need to study the war, Turkey took something that wasn't theirs. the Turkish army should leave and give back was is not theirs. as for killing a man just for trying to take down a flag is totally barbaric .even Turkish Cypriots were driven out by your own army where is the loyalty in that.

I have been to Cyprus three times now and only just found this site it. If anyone say's it sucks they are idiots. Its one of the most interesting and helpful sites I've ever visited. It's helped me alot, THANK YOU. (love Cyprus)
we fly over to Cyprus in a few days, nice web site to check Cyprus out, can't wait to see it
Just visited your site for the first time, surfing for property in Cyprus. I've been eight times now and I just love everything about the island, especially around Pafos, Peyia, especially Chris's, and up in the mountains. Keep up a great site - lots of useful and interesting info. Helen
hi nice site I'm 14 from Istanbul/turkey i have been in Turkish republic of northern Cyprus in Kyrenia, Famagusta and Nicosia but i want go to south too I've a lot of friends from south but i cant come to Cyprus! Why!? be cause our ancestor was enemies i cant accept it! i hope come to Cyprus in future ... we aren't different Turks and Greeks was friends in ottoman we are friends for4 ...
Yes, I love your site. I am travelling to Paphos in two days and your site is very useful. You recommendation of the 'Blue Island' as the best place to eat really interests me. Having looked at the menu I can't wait to try it. How far is it from Paphos? I expect I would need a car to get there. How long would the journey be? Contact me at filynneATexcite.co.uk if this would make it any easier. Many thanks and I will be visiting your site often in the next few days. Carol.
we are going to Ayia Napa next year coz the clubbing scene is mad and you get loads of free shots of vodka!! nissi beach is gorge, its just like the Caribbean! i think your site is brill and i hope to write again when i get back from Ayia Napa to give you some info. keep up the good work! from 2 Shropshire babes. c ya soon.....
hello, I think that Cyprus is an ace country. I have been 2 Cyprus twice, once 2 Paphos and this year 2 Ayia Napa. I think u have done a great job on finding info out, it must have taken ages. bye......4 now.
We Turkish people
Mistress' comments : This is not the place for political comment, have moved it to views ... here
I don't come from Cyprus, nor have i visited but this web site offers a lot of information about your island. Its well done and the layout is very easy to understand/navigate through. You've done a wonderful job! all as i can say is It must have took you hours to do.
I have just discovered your page and find it informative, fun and easy to navigate. We are coming to stay in Protaras for Christmas with our kids- 3 sons aged 19, 17 and 15 and our daughter who is 12. We've never been to Cyprus before and are not typical package tourists (if that means anything to you!). Any advice or info about events, must-see, must-do?
Hey I'm a student at Barnsley College and I am currently studying Tourism Development. I would appreciate it if you could send me some information on the good and bad effects that tourism has had on Ayia Napa. For example the negative and positive environmental, social and economic impacts. Thank you for your time and you can e-mail me at smedley1ATnetlineuk.net
i love this web site but i would like to know how i can get my daily horoscope sent to me in e-mail.
I like this site! I am going to Protaras on the 14th October for my mum and dads 25th wedding anniversary. Its our first time and just wondering if anyone has any tips on where to go or where not to go! Thanks R.M. Taylor
you,r very cood
We are thinking about moving out to Paphos or Protaras in the near future. Can anyone recommend a good area with a good English Primary School in either of the above places?
Also we are going to be staying in both Protaras and Paphos for 2 weeks each in February 2001. Can anyone recommend any Lets??
Terry, Rachel and Alexander.
Very good site we will be visiting at Christmas. I noted a query from one contributor about Turkish stamps in passport, I had about six no trouble at all. Keep up the good work kjw Birmingham uk
I have found 3 different water parks in Cyprus by doing a search on YAHOO under water parks, Wet & Wild, Fasouri Watermania Limassol and Waterpark Waterworld Ayia Napa
We are thinking of having a short break soon but have been told that as we have been to turkey and had our passports stamped we would not be allowed into Cyprus. Is this true?
I have just discovered your site and find it informative and easy to use. I also like the friendly manner in how it is worded.
I was looking on your wildlife section and didn't see anything to do with snakes.
I am asking as I live in Cyprus at the minute- no nothing to do with the forces, and came home yesterday to find a 2-3ft snake trying to get in my front door. It was a light brown colour with small black diamond shapes on it. I think it may have been an adder and is poisonous but am not sure. I am told that ' the black ones aren't poisonous but the bright green ones are' .
I don't know how many varieties of snakes there are here, or which one's are poisonous etc.
It would be useful if you could do something on snakes, ie pictures or descriptions, with info on which are venomous and which aren't, what to do etc.
My snake went to ground under a prickly bush, which i ripped out at the roots with a rake, very nervously. The snake then dashed across the garden, up a wall and through the fence- thankfully.
If you know anything about the snakes here I would appreciate any info you can give me.
You can e-mail me at cherylcullinaneATsovereign-international.com
We are coming to Cyprus on Sunday 8th October and have been told that there are two water parks worth visiting, I only seem to be able to find details about Waterworld, where is the other one. Apparently it has a big bubble with water cascading down the sides and ropes up to the middle to try to help you climb to the summit. I found a web page for it once and have never found it again. Help please
Really really good site - GREAT
Your web site is wonderful. I enjoyed looking through it and reading the comments. Doyle Roughton, Texas, USA
Maybe you could comment on mine, it's new, my first attempt. members.aol.com/~drough777/roughton2001.htm
This web site is great very informative and easy to navigate round as well, It tells the whole story of what to expect form this beautiful Island and I am looking forward to visiting very soon.
Far away in the UK
I like it ,it's good to see where my email friend lives, I enjoy the pretty beaches. I think Cyprus was created just for my eyes to behold how nice it is. I enjoyed your site very much, I'm thankful for the age of the computer to be able to travel' via web' to a Cyprus i would one day love to visit. shirley, usa, Texas.
It would be nice and useful to add some Greek language section, not for real studying of course, but for fun and for being polite with the locals: greetings, apologies, thanks etc.
i hate it!
1960 REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS
The Zurich Agreement (1959) ( rest of the political stuff ) causing casualties on all sides.
Mistress' comments : This is not the place for political comment, have moved it to views ...
Liked the Site, very helpful. Am now really looking forward to our holiday in October.
A search facility would be advantageous.
Mistress' comments : There is one on the search page.
i hate it needs a hundred more pictures
I LIKE YOUR SITE VERY MUCH. IT IS ATTRACTIVELY AND INTELLIGENTLY ASSEMBLED. MY REASON FOR WRITING I AM POSSIBLY STARTING A DISSIMILAR BUSINESS IN THE U.S. AND I AM NEED OF AN INSURANCE CARRIER. DUE TO THE NOVELTY OF THE BUSINESS I HAVE DIFFICULTY IN OBTAINING A REASONABLE QUOTE. I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT.
Mistress' comments : Don't have the same rules here. Sorry.
Hi loved the Web Site need more information on Emigration to Cyprus, I would like to buy a home and set up a boat charter (Fishing and Trips) business more info on these ideas needed, other than that good Site rioca65AThotmail.com
I want to go to Cyprus !!!!!!!!!!
Yo man's I will go to Cyprus. This would be amazing
To purchase a property, and reside in Cyprus, do you have to have a certain amount of capital in your bank account, if so how much?
Mistress' comments : You need to have an external income , enough to keep you and your house.
Ayia Napa! the best place for beach party!!!!
Trying to find information on one Geore Trussler, who states that he owned a diving school called British Sub agua school in Cyprus, he wants to open a school i the Dominican Republic, but understand that he was deported from Cyprus, would like to know why before we issue him a licence, Amiano Castro
I visited Ayia Napa 5 years ago and I am returning to Protaras/Pernera(Golden Coast Hotel) to get married next year. However I have been watching that awful U.K. TV series (Holiday Hotel) and I am somewhat concerned about what has happened to this great area of Cyprus - to the extent where I am reconsidering my booking - have all the great Tavernas and Restaurants been swallowed up by tacky mock pubs. Don't get me wrong I love a good night out - but drunk English teenagers is not my idea of fun. Please tell me the TV show has got it wrong ? p.s. Great Site.
i found this site very helpful thank you.
we went to Ayia Napa for two weeks on the 26th July 2000. My boyfriends brother got married there and everything was perfect. There were about 25 of us in the party and a mixture of ages and families as well as a few young single girls, but there was something to suit all of us including our grans aged 70+. I would certainly recommend to parents with young children to head towards the luna parks (bars which have mini playgrounds at the back of them) as they were a godsend. Nissi beach was recommended to us as 'the beach to go to' but we much preferred macronissos beach as it seemed more relaxed, less busy and generally a nicer beach. There were lots to do both day and night and i really didn't want to come home.
I really enjoyed your site as I found it to be very informative. I do however suggest that you include a section on employment opportunities for various cities.
Mistress' comments : The Classified section gets the job listings.
your maps are really funny they are not perfect and useful you should work more on them.
Mistress' comments : True
Hi - i'm moving to Cyprus in September for a year long study abroad. but i can't decide whether to study in Nicosia or Limassol. i have to make a decision soon and would really really appreciate any info or advice about living in either of these places. thanks so much!! my email is megalish27AThotmail.com
really enjoyed your site-great fun -would like info on long term property letting in south west/quieter regions and advice re pitfalls etc of resident status.
Excellent web-site, very useful. We were having a nightmare trying to find out about Limassol until we found you!
Good stuff - keep it up.
Richard & Karen - England
The most excellent web site for all people, whether they are kebabs or just interested non kebabs! Added to my favourites. Has a good range of topics in a down to earth and quite humorous characterization! Good work!! dodgykebabshopAThotmail.com
this is a great site! im going 2 Ayia Napa in 3 days, and this site gave me all the necessary information on all the clubs and the prices. im now as excited as ever.. Paula, Manchester
But where exactly is Ayia Napa? After some searches on the site, I think I understood it's in Cyprus. You should explain better the location because it's a bit confusing. Apart from that i like your site, It's clear, easy to surf...congratulations Muriel
Mistress' comments : Take a look at the map Muriel.
Excellent page. You can find out almost everything you need on Cyprus. Maybe you should add a section about the newest Cyprus history, 1960 - up to today.
What about a Greek version of the site? That would be perfect for the Greek-speaking visitors.
Keep up the good work @ greedings from Cyprus.
Thought your site was good - clear & informative.
However, can you recommend any good restaurants in Paphos - I'm off on the 23rd July and LOVE my food! Bring on the MEZE!
Cheers - Lee, Bournemouth, England leeATifaevents.co.uk
Mistress' comments : See the Food section !
It's an extremely informative site and very useful for my families upcoming holiday - which I am now looking forward to immensely.
The site combines an abundance of information with wit, which is refreshing.
The only draw back is the background - I feel a more 'professional' looking site will get you a lot more hits.
P.S please could you mail me back at sammortAThotmail.com and tell me how far it is from Ayia Napa and the two cities surrounding it - The first is Larnaca (I think) and the other begins with a 'P' but I have forgot the name.
This would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!
BEER price in Agia Napa?
Mistress' comments : About C£1.50 a pint
Excellent site to read up on before heading there, well done and continue the good work, could you possibly include where there are local gymnasiums (if any and at what cost).
Mistress' comments : Love to...approached a couple and they laughed and said "Who would ever want to know on the internet ??" LOL
Very impressed with the site. Easy to follow and impressive content. Well done
To the whole TUI GROUP Service Team : Have a great and successful summer !!!! Anne-Kathrin
I was in Ayia Napa last year and am returning this year, your sight really refreshed my memory, roll on July!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cyprus look out Erik is coming back to visit Cyprus in august 26th, 20 years after his UN-duty in Famagusta and Athienou Cheers from Sweden, Erik w1.620.telia.com/~u62003510 erik.062013719ATtelia.com
This site has been very useful but there is not that much info on Nicosia. I'm coming
over in August for a month to do research and will be staying in Nicosia, how big is it
really? Is is very touristy? What are the chances of being able to interview people?
Thanks for your help. Emily, Scotland e.s.forbesATtalk21.com
Mistress' comments : Hi Emily, well the idea is not to replace the experience. It is big, not touristy and there will be LOTS of people to interview.
I will be travelling to Cyprus next week and I have found this site to be extremely helpful
This is one of the better web sites about Cyprus. The text is very descriptive and honest but the only thing missing is more pictures. But pictures should only be added if they are good ones. No pictures are better than bad pictures. Other than that your web site is great.
Very good, but could you give more information of the water parks in Paphos. My boyfriend
and I are visiting Paphos this August and want to know where the water parks are located.
Keep up the good work Carrie England
Great site and well laid out (easy to find info). Could it be possible to include more info on restaurants in Ayia Napa (only 2 presently) or just a list of restaurants available. going to Cyprus today ( 3rd TIME ) thanks Bill proudfoot.
Mistress' comments : We will be happy to put your recommendations in the food forum. They 2 in that section are advertisers, and pay the bills.
great lots of info keep it going
I love your Website. It gives me just enough information to keep me interested and not to much so there is still mystery. My family is thinking about moving there or at least considering it. Wow it looks great.
Still one of the best sites. However we would like to be able to track flights from
England so that we do not have to spend hours waiting for arrivals - is there way to track
This is one of the best web sites I have ever visited , but is there any information on Casino in Cyprus.
Mistress' comments : See here
Great Website! I plan to visit Cyprus and your site gave me good information. Thank you. Jan Burg, Othello WA, USA
Hi I am Simone and to say that I am impressed with your web site is one hell of an understatement. IT IS BRILLIANT! My husband and I were very undecided as to where we would holiday this year and after viewing your site we immediately booked a fortnight at the Paphiessa Hotel in Paphos arriving 25th June. We cannot wait to get there. Keep up the good work. Totally excellent web page!!!
I have read all your sites and believe me it is quite enjoyable. A lot of information and well laid out. It is clear and the information is well articulate.
I look forward to visiting your country very soon.
A thoroughly informative site, I am still working my way through the pages of data. However, how current are the property for-sales ?. My wife and I are considering re-locating in your beautiful island are are very interested in such details.
Look forward to hearing from you
Mr & Mrs B Walton
Mistress' comments : Thanks..Yes the properties for sale are up to date, just some of them don't move very fast..
A well organised site with something for everyone inc. a yachtie partner. Coming to Cyprus for the 1st time in June 2000. I loved the property for sale. Carole, Scotland
I wonder if you can help me - I am considering re-locating to Paphos from the UK, where I am presently a Corporate Events & Hospitality Manager for a large American Company - I would obviously be interested in continuing this career within one of the large Hotel chains in Cyprus. Is there a main body whom I need to contact ref. this ?
Many thanks for your assistance
Ms K Lloyd
Mistress' comments : Sorry, don't know, but try an ad in the classifieds.
Like it, however it would be nice to add a map of the locations on the island that you are referencing. Example, your dive selections, where are they on the map? I remember seeing caves near Aphrodite's bathing pool years ago, age 7, and I think these were on the north west shoreline. Can you help me, as we are visiting Cyprus in September after a 50+year absence? namighAThotmail.com .
Best site on Cyprus as there is so much. Property section has many that are dated in
1998! is it up to date.
A modern and thorough website, very impressed! - Niki Byrne, England.
I `ll try again. This is one of the best web sites I have visited , but I would like to
see more information on the birds of Cyprus. Derek
This is one of the best web sites I have visited , but I would like to see more information on the birds of Cyprus. Derek.
A useful addition would be a beach guide: What areas are sandy/rocky, big/small,
busy/quiet and pictures. I am looking for a place that has good nightlife but not too wild
and gorgeous beaches What do you recommend Doctor mistress?
Excellent web site - easy to use and informative
I THOUGHT THAT THIS SITE WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE AND UNLESS THE SO CALLED 'EXPERTS' ARE AGED THREE, THEN I WOULD BE INCLINED TO IGNORE THEIR COMMENTS!!!. HERE IS ONE TIP THOUGH. HOW'S ABOUT PUTTING THE MAIN PAGE IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER TO MAKE IT THAT LITTLE BIT EASIER?? THIS SITE HAS REALLY ENCOURAGED ME TO GO TO CYPRUS, I AM OFF TO THE TRAVEL AGENTS FIRST THING 2MORROW.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Mistress' comments : Hi Helen, Ok we
will do it for you....
I found this site really useful. I am off to Ayia Napa tomorrow, and was worrying about its Ibiza style "nightlife"! ( The sort of thing I hate) But as I am going there to a friends wedding, I was looking around for alternative entertainment, and through it I have booked 4 days Scuba diving with a company advertising on your site. Really Helpful and reassuring that life in A.N. is not only at night or sleeping it off on the beach!
Mistress' comments : Glad you like it...life is what you make it, and there is always something cool to do in Cyprus, even in Napa.
I'm going to Cyprus in June and got a lot of good information from your Web Site. It was easy to get around and the advertising space which was used was for USEFUL things, not USELESS marketing ploys, they were all about things that we would probably visit or use when we get there!
Mistress' comments : Glad you appreciate the idea we try to adhere to..
Great Site ! I am looking for new-age shops in Cyprus (particularly Nicosia/ Limassol). If you know of any, drop me an email at infoATdietway.com with their name/ address/ phone number. Ta!
Ayia Napa not on the map
Mistress' comments : Yes it is, but in the Cycling version.
Great site-easy to understand- would appreciate categories in alphabetical order. Will be revisiting on a regular basis. xxxxxxxx
Hello What a superb site! Loads of info, beautifully laid out and easy to find. You've talked me into it - I'll be going to Cyprus in May!!!
Mistress' comments : Wonderful month...enjoy!
You prepare very nice web site about Cyprus island. But: The "other " side is Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, as you know well...........
Mistress' comments : Thank you, however turkish-republic-of-northern-cyprus.com is a website that we own. That's legal.
Hi I have been returning to Cyprus for many years since serving in the forces in the 70's and am now considering permanent residence. Came across your site by chance and have just realised how little I knew of the island! The information you are providing is exactly what I require - and more. Thanks. J W Tregilgas
Mistress' comments : Thanks JW ...that sort of thing
I'm planning a trip to Cyprus and your website has been VERY helpful. The only thing is that I would like find out how expensive (or not) things are. Is there somewhere on the website that gives a range of prices for restaurants, souvenirs, typical tourist stuff?
A QUITE LOVELY WEB SITE; WHAT WERE THE MAMMAL NOISES; WE ARE COMING OVER NEXT WEEK BIRDING; IS THERE ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER.
BEST REGARDS, MIKE COLLARD
EOKA B - NIKOS SAMPSON - 'ENOSIS' - December 1962. Need one say more about the 'rights' embedded in certain 'Greek' views of DEMOCRACY on CYPRUS. The Greeks invented the word democracy. Why could politicians, military, and the immature playing with guns not honour it for 'Turks' AND 'Greeks' alike? Or are we really talking about the hatred of 'Christians' for 'Muslims'? From 'Give us a break you Hellenist propagandists. You'll find large part of your 'genetic pool' now living in Turkey, speaking Turkish and nominally Muslim at least. Like so many, they joined the side that they thought would benefit them the more, over the centuries!'
Mistress' comments : We have provided a views page for the discussion of politics and bile. It has discussion threads and all....this is a simple like or hate this site page!
According to the Constitution by which Cyprus gained independence from Britain, what is 'illegal' about the Turkish 'occupation' of part of the island's territory? What is the legitimacy of the present 'government' of 'Cyprus'. Is it a government of territory, or of people, or inconceivably of both?????? Can you spin me an answer? Joh Israel. email: johnisraelAThotmail.com
Mistress' comments : We have provided a views page for the discussion of politics and bile. It has discussion threads and all....this is a simple like or hate this site page!
As I am due to visit Cyprus in a few weeks time I decided to use the www to find out a little more about the island. This was the first link I cam across and one I have bookmarked for future reference. I have got to say this is a truly superb site, well set out, informative and so easy to browse. All the additional links to so many varied topics has certainly made me look forward to our holiday. I have found all the answers to all of my questions, and can thoroughly recommend this site to all browsers. I hope to make my own contribution once I have returned form our trip and see how true to life your pages make the island sound. Barry.NewinsATdtn.ntl.com
one of the easiest web sites I have ever used. So much for the experts. Also really informative
I like it and I think it is cool!!!
excellent web site!! easy to move around in, very informative, clear and fun presentation. and lots of juicy details. thanks!
This is the best web site I have seen so far, so easy to use and a huge amount of info. Well done whoever did it. My website would be useful to expats in Cyprus, it is on flowercard.com . Cecilia.
Hey, I lived in Cyprus for 4 years and i loved it. I think your site ROCKS!!!
great website wish we had more of these
VERY EASY TO NAVIGATE ENJOYABLE PAGES EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE COVERED. LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR SPRING BREAK AT THE END OF MARCH TONY KILLING NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE ENGLAND
My name is Mary, I was born in Cyprus and have lived most of my life in Australia. Next year I intend to take an extended holiday in Cyprus and I think your website is fantastic. I would like some more information regarding schools in the Larnaca area, for a 13 year old going into year 8. I have chosen Larnaca as my father was born and raised there. Are there any English private schools there? Do the state schools have English as a second language? Keep up the good work!! email: lazdinsATdataline.net.au
20 July and 14 August mark the black anniversary of the brutal Turkish invasions of the Republic of Cyprus in 1974. In Cyprus, the Turkish army committed war crimes of:
MASS MURDER 6,000 Greek Cypriots were massacred, many of them tortured to death.
MASS RAPE 1,000 women aged 12 to 78 were raped.
ENFORCED DISAPPEARANCES More than 1,500 missing Greek Cypriots are still unaccounted for. Many were recorded by the Red Cross as prisoners of the Turkish army. They have never been seen again.
ETHNIC CLEANSING 200,000 Greek Cypriots were forcibly expelled from their homes at gunpoint from the occupied northern part of Cyprus. To this day they are prevented from returning by the Turkish army of illegal occupation.
Indeed, at the dawn of the 21st century, Turkey is enforcing apartheid in Europe in its attempt to transform Cyprus into a province of Turkey!
Turkey has been condemned for its crimes in Cyprus by more than 90 United Nations and Security Council resolutions and by the European Court of Human Rights who have called for the respect of human rights in Cyprus and the restoration of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus.
While in 1999 the West took decisive action in Kosovo, we ask:
If the Kosovo Albanian refugees are assured an almost immediate return to their homes, why are the 200,000 Greek Cypriot refugees still denied a safe and peaceful return to their homes and properties after 25 years?
We urge you to contact your government representatives in support of our cause!
I think it is a really nice place to find stuff about Cyprus. Witty and smart, sometimes funny, but still sharp and up to date. Good work.
Please would you ask the Cyprus Ornithological Society to give us some information about the birds of Cyprus.
Hello everybody, great site! I am going to Cyprus this summer and I cannot wait! Looking forward to seeing those new pics... Oh, and I suggest you all go and visit the lobby for Cyprus page... See you, Alex

I think you site is fantastic. I love Cyprus. I am looking for a logo, a symbol, something a person can wear to show their support for the liberation of northern Cyprus back to its rightful owners. olympia_a_kalagidisATmerck.com
Excellent aid to the uninformed. Useful tips and guides. Could do with some pics of popular areas to get a "feel" of the atmosphere.
Mistress' comments :Look in the town categories for the thumbnail pics which you can then enlarge. I got a digital camera a few days ago, so soon the pages will be overloaded with pics! Also see Yourpics for some good shots.
Best web site on cyprus......ever! Could you add some info on shopping? Which are the best towns to go to for retail therapy? We are coming to Cyprus on 5th March. Hope the weather improves! Adrian & Liz.
Mistress' comments : Ha ha, Shop till you drop. Well you are coming to the right place...great shopping in Cyprus in all the main towns. Buy a trolley to carry all the goodies.
Your website is the best I have seen on Cyprus yet. It has really helped me on my report for school. I will love you forever if I get an A!!!
Mistress' comments : Good Luck.
ILOOOVVVE YOUR WEB SITE ITS COOOOL
I am very pleased with this fantastic site. But, unless i have not looked very well, i cannot find anything for teenagers to do. E.G Go- Kart places, water parks ( prefferably in or around Paphos), theme parks etc. Please, please could you get back to me if possible before the 1/3/00 Thanx for your help my email address is as follows:- abucktomATaol.com THANX FOR YOUR HELP!
Mistress' comments : You are right. Paphos entertainment for teens is a mystery to us...now you have a mission...go forth and report.
We want to thank you for this site it helped me and it made me even more excited about my vacation, can't wait to be in Agia Napa. Your site is very complete and the only good one I could find about Cyprus, but after this one I don't have to look any further... xxx the powerpuff girls
I love your website. I like the subtle use of humour, understatement, modesty and pure wit. i want to E-Mail you to find rural villa or cottage type accommodation from 21 April to 1 May for 4 adults, 2 babies and one small girl (4 yrs old), but your system makes Star Office load, which demands the creation of an "outbox" and I don't know how to do this. I f you in a position to offer pleasant, non-touristy accommodation around the Akamas and Polis areas, please E-Mail or phone me - we are waiting to book flights. E-Mail b.roughtonATfreenet.co.uk or telephone 00 44 (0)115 981 7684. Thanks.
Mistress' comments : Sweet person. We have made contact.

I was just wondering what sort of prices exist in the clubs of Agia Napa eg, the price for a pint of beer, the price of food, entrance fees to clubs etc.
Mistress' comments : Slightly higher than anywhere else but not pocket breaking, especially by European standards.
Hello, visited your site quite by accident but can assure you that it will be added to favourites. Last summer we visited Cyprus for the first time. We loved your country and will be back.

Your site is impressive in every respect. Keep up the good work. We will be on our 4th visit to the Protaras area this year. One thing maybe you forgot to mention in the nasties section - well to us is the size of your 'roaches'. Mark+Debbie, England.
Mistress' comments : Thanks, we will add them, even though they are field roaches ( a bit like the difference between field mice and rats)
Could you please try to include information about sport in Cyprus. For example I am into golf, but I could find no info on courses on the island. I believe this sport is up and coming in Cyprus so perhaps you may would to include details in the future.
Mistress' comments : We will send our man Lagonikos on a mission.
THE BEST TOWN IN EUROPE............................................I LOVE THAT TOWN.
Excellent site ! Thanks for keeping the graphics to the minimum so that the pages load very fast. Good work!! -Vinod
Mistress' comments : I like the tongue in cheek remark!
This just has to be the best web site on the net. It's very well laid out, informative and the pages load quickly. - Superb. Maybe some info on motorcycle hire as well as car hire. See you in summer
My first impression was 'excellent' - what a superb layout. I loved the way that the index came up on each page I looked at - saves using the back arrow. The amount of information is superb - I am probably coming to Cyprus this year so I shall be visiting your site many more times!
Best wishes from Linda
SCOTT FROM WOOLWICH SOUTH LONDON, HAVE NOT BEEN TO CYPRUS YET. GOING THIS YEAR BRILLIANT SITE FOR INFORMATION. THANK YOU
Hello! This is really great and very easy to use and gives a lot of info on Cyprus! I have actually been to Cyprus and it is very accurate!
Are you the official web site for the country of Cyprus?
If so, please can you send literature by US mail to us as we plan to visit there soon?
Mistress' comments : No we are not, but we're up for it !
Only found your pages after we had been to Ayia Napa. Found it very interesting to read about places we had been to. Will go back to Cyprus in the next few years, will look forward to visiting this site before we come back
Hello My name is Andrea and I am living in the Middle East. Your Website is really good and I received lots and lots of good and useful information. The only thing what could be improved is, that the Real Estate section is not at all updated. There is still offers from Real Estate from 1998. I would really appreciate, if you could update that kind of side's on a regular bases. I try to find a suitable real estate in Cyprus- with an updated Website much more easier. Hold up the good work. Bye Andrea Hello,
Mistress' comments : The real estate section is updated regularly, but some of the properties have been on for a long time. This provides you with a real insight into how things are moving and how things sold, as we also leave on the sold properties so you have realistic archive to compare.
The "other " side is Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, as you know well
You all see bloody Greek orphans, what will happen at the and of New York talks!!!! Cyprus is a Turkish Island since more than 500 years and you all are our slaves...
Mistress' comments : WoW - Luckily the world contains polite, well meaning and thinking people as well as rude bullying ones who can't spell. I know I shouldn't rise to the bait, but I must just state for the record that Cyprus, like the rest of the world, is inhabited by (an overabundance of unhappily for all the other creatures) people. People live on both "sides". Politics can ruin lives, as do nationalism, hunger, war, deprivation, zealots and ignorance.
Cyprus was illegally occupied in 1974 by Turkish troops. The rights and wrongs of the lead up to that action do not have any bearing......It was and remains an illegal act, ergo there is no Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.......I may imagine that I am the Queen of Cyprus, but saying so will not make it so !
By the way........how does "500 years" of having "slaves" give any one the right ? Slavery as well is illegal, and using your logic you are the slave of the protozoa which inhabited the island for millions of years prior to your arrival.
Dear Sirs ! I very like your site and your country. I have a lot of Cyprus friends. Happy new year! With respect, Maxim Kim
Kalimera! I really really like this site. I fell in love with Cyprus 14 months ago and have been there 4 times since. And guess what? I'll be back in January! Cypriots are so friendly and open people! Sabrina
I LIKE THIS WEBSITE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE MORE DETAILS REGARDING HEALTH, STYLE, BEHAVIOUR OF INDIVIDUAL STAR SIGNS. UZMA. AFZAL. RAWALPINDI, PAKISTAN.
THIS IS NATASHA, BEST WEBSITE EVER SEEN KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
I am very impressed with the selection of information. The wait time in downloading the site was a bit slow. However, once I saw the amount of items to visit, I understood why. The format of information is well done, and easy to read. The pictures are beautiful! Having travelled to Cyprus this past summer, I believe they accurately reflect the true Cyprus experience. Thanks!
I have just come back from Cyprus and the first desire is to experience the best moments of the trip again. This site is very close to the truth and once again I feel so bad being so far away from the land of gods!!! ekhhh

Very interesting site, helpful too. Well done! mysticATitl.net
I think you should decide whether this is simply a site for advertising - which is fine - or a impartial guide. To suggest that the "Blue Island" is the best restaurant in Limassol is a joke. It is a tourist trap of the worst kind. Its location says it all.
Mistress' comments : I understand your reservations, however - we did decide, which is why there are not 50 adverts there. The Blue Island may be in the wrong place, but Limassol is not very wide, and you are either on the sea front or not. BUT it certainly is not a tourist trap - and is frequented mostly by business people and those who like to eat. I am the one who offered the Blue Island advertising, and yes we do charge (very little) - but we ONLY offer it to people that we are HAPPY to advertise, and so we are not impartial. It is the best place I have eaten in If you know of a better one - please put it on our good food guide as others do or tell us about it. Have you actually eaten there or are you just looking at the logo ?
I think that this web is very interesting not only for the superstitious people but also for all the people who have a little free time. It is interesting to learn not only your horoscope , but also your lucky numbers, your favourite colours, etc. This become even more interesting when you read about all the other stuff in this web side .I am sure that this web will become a very famous and visited web in a little period of time , if it hasn't become one yet. Sincerely, Giulia Meto.
I like your site! It's really cute and easy to follow. It helped us a lot with our Geography project. Great Job :) Megan and Amber
Great site! Coming over on 18 Dec - anyone interested in chatting or perhaps meeting up? jazzwegianATmailcity.com
Mistress' comments : About the same in December as in November. Have a great trip
I like your web site very much, don't change a thing. I am looking for an honest good looking one man woman, age 35 to 45 someone who is caring and don't want to be lonely anymore.

If anyone would like to e-mail me its- larrybarkerATwebtv.net or Larry Barker 617 Bryant st. Mountain Home, Arkansas 72653 U.S.A.

PS: please mail us your name so we can meet and thank you in person when we visit your beautiful island
LIke it! I'm also creating a website about Cyprus, but from a slightly different perspective. I am also Greek Cypriot, living in Canada though. I'll let you know when i launch my site. Write me if you'd like to chat!
Mistress' comments : Good luck and let us know when it is ready. Love to write, but have 0 time.
I love your website! I actually lived in Nicosia in 1984-85, and your website has helped make me "homesick" all over again....

Dear sirs we don't hate anything :) but we could not find where your EMAIL is, so we clicked here.
how do we get enlisted on your nice site? thank you JULIA
Mistress' comments : Our e-mail address for General enquiries is firstname.lastname@example.org and in most sections you will find more user specific ones. , but thanks for the feedback as we will now put on a contacts page.
I've just spent a week on your Island and it was fantastic! I missed the disco in Larnaka so I'll have to come back.
I am looking for the most reasonable way to get to Cyprus from Miami or Houston. I found a good rate from Houston to Tel-Aviv and wonder if the is a cost effective way to get to Cyprus from there. Your response to: Albert_SteinATJuno.Com is appreciated. I have a sister that just moved there and want to surprise her. Thank You Albert Stein
LIKE IT/HATE IT My wife and I have visited your beautiful island for the first time this year in March and we have just been there for the second time. I have been reading all the stuff I could get my fingers on to be well prepared before our trip , but your "WEP" is just what we need to find out what we have to visit the next time we come to your island. We are from DENMARK and I am a holder of a BRITISH Pilot Licence , so I have seen a lot from the air , which I find is a very good way to find some new places to visit. This side is the first in my Bookmarks on my computer so well done ,we do hope you would carry on with this informative side . Beast regards Per Hammer. with
I don't like it, I love it. Your site has everything, keep up the good work. And i just wanna say, Cyprus watch out for me next year. //Sweden...Magnus
really well done! have been searching the web for information on Cyprus, as i will be visiting there at the end of September, and your site is definitely the best and most informative one, with excellent navigation - i even managed to find a nice stop-over place on your pages - but, do they allow pets? one piece of information i could not find is about public transport - i will be getting to Limassol by ship, and leaving from Larnaka by plane - so how do i get there? also, if i might suggest a gentle improvement to this board, in my opinion - it's preferable to view the most recent messages on top, rather than the bottom of the page with regards, and keep up the good work wenATappleby.net appleby.net
Mistress' comments : Well thank you, and it has been suggested before, so here goes....you can also now find all your predecessors here As for pets...yes but you will have to put ' whatever' in 6 months of quarantine, so it is hardly worth it for a stopover !
Public transport I agree is not well covered, but you can find some info at the General bits page here
The loves and the hates archives are now here and thanks to all of you for your feedback, but the page was getting cumbersome and too big.
An interesting, informative, logical and beautifully designed web page. A pleasure to browse through - you've covered a wide selection of worthwhile topics !
Well done guys !
L & A
Mistress' comments : Well thank you too. What wonderful praise, but its gals not guys!
