I am currently embarking on my third trip to this island over an eight year period. I have visited most of this island by car and so can comment on its various resorts.
Paphos is a quaint place with a nice harbour with tavernas and restaurants along the front. It does not have a beach here but you can get a bus quite easily on the main road to Coral Bay where there is a golden sand beach and cove.
Ayia Napa is a lively resort but it is best to stay in Macronisos just on the outskirts. Here you can benefit from the quiet for sleeping but can venture into the nightlife if desired. It also host Nissi Beach which has white sand and turquoise water.
Larnaca and Limmasol have a picturesque fronts with shops and a few nice restaurants. They both host a nice promanade for walking.
All in all this is a fabulous island and I would highly recommend hiring a car to see all of these diverse places as well as venturing up Mount Olympus and the Troodos villages.
Summary: An excellent place for a holiday
