Holiday in Cyprus in May help, please.

Postby cgs11 » Sun Apr 20, 2008 12:40 pm

Hi, we are going to Cyprus to celeberate our wedding anniversary on 4th May. Can you answer a few simple questions, please.
I assume bringing sterling and changing to euros in Pathos is OK.
Is their a water shortage problem at the moment?
I'm hoping the Laura Beach hotel is OK.
TIA,
Chris.

Sterling isn't faring very well against the Euro just now - so the exchange rate is quite poor. But yes, you can bring sterling and change to Euros with no difficulty.

And - it's Paphos or Pafos but - never Pathos, which is something completely different although I believe it sums up Paphos pretty well :lol: (Not my favourite place in Cyprus).

Yes, there is a water shortage - but I believe the tourist hotels are not being affected.

Have never stayed at Laura Beach hotel but you could try googling for "Laura Beach hotel review" or check out Holiday Truths website for reviews there.

The weather should be nice and pleasant at that time of year. Enjoy!

Sterling is quite low at the moment against the Euro. It will come down even further until the pound submits to a superior currency and elects to join Euro land. We are witnessing the demise of the once mighty stg , I remember when the pound was worth 4 dollars and we called the half crown a dollar !!.
Join the Euro that's what I say !!

There is an old saying for Pafos that my grandfather used to say (and he was from Pafos)

"Pafos? Take your clothes and leave." :lol:

Just kidding it's not that bad! Have fun! :)

My husband and me will also travel to Cyprus the first of may.
Since we come from Spain which is also in the Euro I'm not worried about the echange rate, but I had not been there for the last 4 years I'm wonderig about the cost of life.
Could any of you be so kind to let me know for example how munch I'll have to pay for a coffe, a beer, a meal and things like that.

Thanks in advance

At a restaurant-cafe:
coffee: 5-8 euros
beer: 7-8 euros
meal (fast food) 8-10 euros per person
meal (average restaurant) 20-25 euros per person

Thanks Kurupetos

God !!!

You all are right when you say everything is so expensive now.

Here we pay 1 euro for a coffe and 2 euros for a beer the meal is almost the same.

I'm starting to think that when I get back to Spain I'll be bankrupt

Any way I cannot wait to be back !!!!

Maybe those are the prices on Mars, but in Paphos, I would say most things are less than half those quoted.
