My family (4 adults, 2 children) wanted a two week summer holiday and we sent Yianni our enquiry at around Easter time. Apparently we were a bit late as there were a lot of confirmed reservation mainly from repeater guests and Yianni could not offer two consecutive weeks. Instead, as there are 3 villas in this resort (BLUE CORAL BEACH VILLAS), he suggested we spend the first week in one and the second week in another villa. The relocation half way through our holiday worried us before we booked, but, eventually it turned out absolutely fine. There were no delays, no hassle, the planning by Yianni and his team was spot on and we got to experience two villas!!
We stayed in NAUTILUS and then in POSEIDON villa. Both are similarly furnished and well equipped. The sunset views over the sea were out of this world from either villa.
We decided against hiring a car and we moved around with buses and taxis. The bus stop is only 200 yards away from the villas, the buses are new and air-conditioned, and, the fare is cheap. Using the bus we could go to Coral Bay in 2 minutes and to Paphos Harbour in 25 minutes. For supplies, we took the bus to a nearby supermarket in Coral Bay area (again 2 minutes away) and then the supermarket brought us and our shopping back to the villa by car with their free delivery service, which was great!
We also planned three full day excursions and for that purpose we hired a taxi which was a mini bus. We used the taxi company with which Yianni arranged the airport transfers for us and they were very good.
Although there are restaurants around, we mostly stayed at home and almost every evening we used the barbecue and dined al fresco watching the sunset and then had our drinks enjoying the starry Mediterranean sky and listening to the gentle waves crushing on the beach below.
I would highly recommend these villas to my brother, my best friend and everyone that wants to have a holiday to remember!!!
It is difficult to put my feelings in words but I'll try. To begin with Yianni (the owner) was great in responding to all our questions prior to arrival and also arranged for us airport transfers, car hire, massages in our own garden and a chef for a fantastic private dinner, who cooked Cypriot delicacies in front of us and served them directly to our plates.
Blue Coral Beach Villas comprises of 3 villas. There are no neighbours and the 3 villas have ample privacy between them. We booked two of them (POSEIDON and NAUTILUS) as my family is large. The third villa (OCEANOS) is similar in design and quality.
The location is so fortunate! Not only are they standing right on the waterfront with unobstructed sea views, they actually face west so every day you are experiencing unbelievable sunsets.
The beach in front of the villas has both sand and pebbles and it is never busy. The sea there is great! Sometimes calm and sometimes wavy and the sound of the waves on the pebbles at night is something that I shall greatly miss.
The beach bar, which is about 250 yards from the villas and easily accessible on foot, was very convenient for lunchtime snacks and cocktails at night. It is a lounge bar so the music they play is soft and at low volume.
There is a convenience store nearby for the daily essentials and other shops not too far away.
The villa itself is equipped with everything a family needs for a self catering holiday villa. In fact we had more stuff than we have at our own home....
So we are already making enquiries to go back next year. The people in the third villa told us that it is their 4th visit on a row and every year the quality of the villas is the same as they are well maintained and the service is great!
A big thank you to Yianni, his dad and the rest of the team. See you again soon!
The villa had a good layout and was well thought out. Loved sitting on the bench at the bottom of the garden first thing in the morning listening to the sound of the waves. The outside space was perfect.
Until we found this villa we would not normally return to the same location each year, but the experience is so relaxing with everything you cou,d need for a home from home experience. This is not a HOLIDAY villa it has far more! Don't take my word for it as other reviews confirm what a great place this is to stay. The views from the bedroom first thing in the morning make it difficult to get out of bed! A morning stroll along the beach though is so exhilarating. Sitting outside with morning tea to the sound of the sea lapping onto the beach. The new taverna on the beach is great to wander across for a refreshing drink or light meal. Views across the bay in either direction and the magical sunsets are not to be missed. Hiring a car is easy but the buses run from the end of the drive in either direction at regular intervals. Two great supermarkets not far away for everything you need and the fresh bread choices are great. Outside dining and BBQ facilities are brilliant here. Don't hesitate to book as Yianni makes it all so simple and provides for your every request if at all possible. Loyalty scheme is great idea for the returning guests.
We spent marvellous 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year enjoying stunning views, relaxing days and nights, good food and fabulous hospitality in this lovely villa. The sea is literally 50 yards from your window, across your pool and garden and a narrow shingle beach and the sound of the waves is so relaxing. The villa has everything you could ask for including a complimentary welcome back with everything the late arrival could need on their first night and a very friendly welcome from the owner's family. Coral Bay is only 5 minutes away with a selection of restaurants and shops but there is a small café/shop at the end of the drive for last minute essentials. Would thoroughly recommend for couples who are looking to get away or to extended families as the villa is close to all amenities and the beach is a stone's throw away.
