We (4 friends) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aphrodite Hills, 2 of us came for the Tennis Academy, the other 2 to relax by the pool and enjoy the lovely weather. We stayed in a villa on the resort only 10 minutes from the village centre, tennis courts and golf club which was really convenient. The Tennis Academy run by Head Coach Scott Wakefield was excellent, I discovered shots I didn’t know existed and the focus was on how you put shots together and use them in your game. Scott is very user friendly and any level of tennis player would benefit from what’s on offer at Aphrodite Hills. The villa was gorgeous, with all the facilities you might need. The views from the terrace down the ravine to the sea overlooking the infinity pool were fabulous. We made use of the local bus service which comes into the resort to go swimming at Aphrodite Rock (Petra tou Romiou) and visit Paphos where we were amazed by the history round every corner, the mosaics near the harbour were beautiful and St Paul’s Pillar at the Basilica. Paphos is European capital of culture in 2017 and lots of building is going on at the moment, we’d love to see it again when it’s all complete. Most of all though, we found the Cypriot people really warm and welcoming, including our taxi driver Yiannis from Kouklia and will definitely go back.
