Where Is The Ayia Napa Square?
The Ayia Napa Square is located in the Ayia Napa area which is on the eastern side of Cyprus. When looking for hotels make sure you check the maps. As Ayia Napa is bit of a bigger region then some of our other destinations, and you won’t want to be travelling too far to get to the main area every day and night.
The airport that you will fly into is Larnaca. This is about a 45-minute drive if going direct. You can get taxis for around €50-€60, if splitting the cost then this may be an option for your group if you want to get to Ayia Napa quicker. If your booking with us comes with a transfer it may take a little longer depending on the number of stops.

The Ayia Napa Square By Day
The Ayia Napa square and surrounding areas are still full of things to do in the day. It is a bit more developed than some other party destinations so you will definitely find something to keep your days busy too. Go shopping or visit Nissi Beach – a blue flag awarded beach. Hit the theme park in the evening before you go out out!
The sun in Ayia Napa gets really hot in the summer months, so if you’re wanting to lounge and do nothing in the day then we wouldn’t blame you.

Hotels Near The Ayia Napa Strip
In order to get the best experience, we only offer hotels that have been highly rated by previous Party Harders, and if you book your holiday or hotel through us you’ll get our Ayia Napa Essential Events Package included for FREE.
Ayia Napa is full of hotels to host thousands of people each and every year. There are a lot that are very close to the square area and some that of course aren’t, make sure you check where your hotel is on the map before booking. Some of our popular hotels such as Green Bungalows sell out fast so get yours booked to avoid disappointment.
You’ll be charged a Tourist Tax when checking in. This amount is dependent on the star rating of the hotel, the number of nights you are staying, and the number of rooms booked. The amount is not typically more than 5 euros per night. It’s also very normal in party resorts for hotels to charge a returnable room deposit. These room deposits are typically €50 euros per person and returned to you after your stay (providing you haven’t had the paint party in your room!). You’ll get these deposits back after the hotel staff give your room a check over when you check-out so don’t go too hard the night before – give yourself plenty of time to check-out and get to the airport.
More than likely, there will be a damages list in your room. You don’t want to blow your spending money on any new furniture so treat the place with respect. After all, this is going to be your home for the week.
