Although, there was plenty of useful information in this book, I felt it was lacking on several levels. The authors seem to feel that the ONLY way to see Cyprus is by car so they skimp on information on Intercity and local buses and other ways to see the country. I had to get the information on my own. Pafos especially was full of day tours offered for the entire country. It would have been good to have some guidance and direction ahead of time on where to look for tours.
I found myself seeking out information on my own more than with other editions of LONELY PLANET. The small maps included were not as detailed as I would have liked. I chose a hotel in Pafos based on the recommendation of LONELY PLANET. I was more than pleased with the hotel but I had trouble finding it based on the map in the book.
The LONELY PLANET guides are my favorite travel tools. I was a bit disappointed in this edition and for once found myself relying more on the EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE that I also brought with me.
Of course, there'll always be details that are "in the eye of the visitor". I don't care much for stuff like the Rock of Aphrodite; of course, you can't just leave it out, but I do like when LP writers are critical about certain over-appreciated sights.
However, I liked the Ireland Kindle guide I got in that it had Google Maps links for all locations besides the mostly useless Kindle maps. The most useful maps on the Amazon device (probably different on a DX, though) were those split in 4 parts that you could zoom in, and that was sort of readable (I forget which guide that was in). The PDF maps compensate for that somewhat, although I haven't tried them on my device, where pretty much any PDF is hard to read. You probably need a laptop or a better tablet to use them, or, well, printing them would also do
Also, there's something of a section mismatch - in "Itineraries", "One week - Relaxing in the Republic" is the same as the previous one ("One Week - Essential Northern Cyprus"), so people looking for a quick plan for a week in the South might be disappointed :).
