Try Cyprus Air for the flight and Bookcyprus.com for the hotel. We had arranged a nice schedule but, having read over a dozen travel reviews, we decided today that August in Cyprus would be too hot (low 40's). Also its very dry and arid. We need some greenery.

We were quoted AED1,775 each inc.taxes for the flights from Cyprus Air and found a cheap aparthotel for Eur25 per room per night on Bookcyprus.com. You can also get the room rates (ex-flights) on Thomsons website. My friend who lives there prefers Paphos to Agia Napa, which would necessitate a fairly long drive. They do transfers but car hire seems dirt cheap over there.
