Ayia Napa Hotels finding hotels in Cyprus

Ayia Napa is well known as Cyprus' party capital and a good night's sleep rarely features on visitors' holiday wish lists. As a result most of Ayia Napa's hotels fall into the utilitarian (rather than luxury) category, catering to a clientele largely made up of 18 30yr old holidaymakers. However, there are a number of hotel complexes skirting the town that offer a more up market ambience.

Ayia Napa Cyprus boasts more than 20,000 beds, but rooms fill up quickly in the high season so it's essential to book well in advance. Be careful about where you choose to stay and remember that you won't get much rest if you book a hotel in the town centre. If you're looking to push the boat out the following hotels are recommended:

The Aeneas Hotel
The Aeneas Hotel is a five star option located on the waterfront at Nissi Bay and within walking distance of the town centre. It's set in 14 acres of landscaped gardens and boasts one of the largest tropical 'lagoon style' swimming pools in Europe.
