Aphrodite Hills Resort is a fantastic choice of holiday destination for families, not just for the abundance of sunshine, the beautiful scenery, or the high level of safeness, but also for the wonderful facilities available that children can enjoy whilst here; keeping the little ones active and entertained while on holiday. That’s if you can drag them away from the pool of course!
The sport facilities at the Resort are first class, and offer children the opportunity to learn new skills or hone existing skills, but in a fun environment. This is particularly true of the Dream Team Soccer School, located next to the Tennis Academy. Lee and his team of UEFA qualified coaches offer private and group coaching all year round, as well as Masters Football Camps during selected weeks in UK holiday periods. Read more about Dream Team here. The Tennis Academy and Golf Academy also offer private coaching (individual, pairs and groups), and normally run summer group coaching sessions that are a great social way for children to learn, play and make friends. Read more about the Tennis Academy and Golf Academy here. Don’t forget that you can even simply rock up and buy driving range tokens for balls, and hire a few clubs and hit a few balls too.
The Tennis Academy also hosts two padel tennis courts (coaching is also available for padel), as well as a basketball court with adjustable nets. There is a great refreshment bar (that sells good coffee, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages) and plenty of seating at The Tennis Academy, as well as a really friendly and welcoming atmosphere, so parents can enjoy chilling out watching their kids take part if they don’t feel like being active themselves. This is one of the most social areas on the Resort.
If your children are more orientated towards animals then the Aphrodite Hills Horse Riding Centre is situated a little further past the top of the Resort, along a 3km dirt track (don’t worry, it’s level and can be accessed by car) that runs through some beautiful, typical Cypriot countryside. The Horse Riding Centre has a yard, school and is home to happy healthy horses, ponies and Cypriot donkeys! They run a lovely pony club during summer months where little ones can help groom the ponies and horses, but even if you don’t fancy booking the kids in for lessons, treks or pony club, it’s still a fun and worthwhile visit to pop in. Learn more about the Horse Riding Centre here.
The Kid’s Club in the village square is really popular and has a great reputation. They run an interactive, varied schedule of indoor and outdoor activities to keep children engaged, in another environment where they can make holiday friends. Babysitting is also available through the Kid’s Club, please enquire directly with them for more information. Next to the Kid’s Club, just beneath the Zimi Trattoria, there is a great playpark, which is free of charge for residents and non-residents of the Resort. It is a sand park so the ground doesn’t overheat in summer months and the climbing frames and swings have shade ports and trees for some protection from the sun too. The zip line is a firm favourite here!
Time by the pool is up there as a favourite holiday activity. It never ceases to amaze how much time children can be spent splashing, swimming and jumping around in a swimming pool. We recommend investing in some pool toys for your holiday, the best place to get these from is Jumbo superstore in Paphos Kings Avenue Mall.
If you venture off the Resort then there are of course plenty of other holiday activities to be enjoyed in Cyprus – Scuba Diving is a wonderful option (for children over 8 years, we recommend our friends at Cyprus Diving Adventures), the Waterpark (we recommend Fasouri Watermania near Limassol), boat trips (try our friends over at Latchiwatersports), beach days and more!
Whichever activities you choose to enjoy during your holiday at Aphrodite Hills, we guarantee you will have the best fun making memories together as a family.
