    Host Report by Jacky Baker


    Our holiday in Cyprus in the superb Athena Royal Beach Hotel lived up to all expectations. We have been coming here for a few years now and always get a very warm welcome from the staff, who cannot do enough for you. Good weather, great hotel, good food and good company - what more could you want!

    The hotel is situated on a level promenade which runs all the way into Paphos harbour, and there is also a regular, inexpensive bus service which stops just outside our hotel.

    The guests also enjoyed the many additional activities on offer, including putting, crazy golf, aqua aerobics, cycling, table tennis and of course our programme of bowling, which consisted of seven free sessions over the fortnight.

    There were several excursions available and we had one, exclusive to our group, which took in many of the principal sights of the island.

    Our thanks to Pauline Durie, the other member of our team on this occasion, who was a cheerful presence in the bridge room and extremely helpful , and once again to the hotel. We look forward to returning next year. Continue reading
