The Panaretti Paphos Resort is a time share resort.
You may still find it under its old name of Rania Resort. But for gooodness sake if you stay in it dont let them talk you into joining.

Why not? I know a few people who own a couple of time shares in different places each and love it. Is it the specific resort or the gimmicks they use to get you to sign up or something else all together?

The concept of timeshare is fine if it the type of holiday which suits you. I know people who own time shares and are very happy with it.
The way it is sold with blatant lies and aggressive ticket touts gives it a bad name.
The other problem is that while some of the owners of the resorts are reputable uinfortunately not all of them are. With that I will say no more as naming and shaming is not allowed therefore I cannot name a specific company despite knowing things about them that would curl your hair

enough said. i am not in the market to buy one, couldn't even get my hubby to take the free florida vacation, he said that his 90 minutes he would have to spend listening to the sales pitch is more valuable than the actual vacation.
