We were upgraded on arrival to another hotel which turned out to be the Athena Royal. We were given full instead of half board and a superior room.This was very fortunate as the hotel was superb! The food was excellent, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the ambience perfect for us. The pool area was very clean, calm and restful, being an adult only hotel. Also,the indoor pool was excellent! Sunbeds a-plenty and well spaced out within the lovely grounds with no need for the early morning rush to reserve them! Only one small thing to point out. There is no real beach and the access to the water is extremely precarious via a very wobbly jetty! Having said this, it did not detract from our total enjoyment of this hotel. We will return as soon as we can!

Recently returned from our really lovely relaxing holiday at the Athena Royal Beach Hotel. We wanted a peaceful holiday and after reading reviews before booking thought this would be ideal and we were not wrong. It is correct that there is not much entertainment going on but that is why we booked this hotel - there is plenty going on in the resort of Paphos so you don't need to stay in the hotel to get more excitement. There are quite a few older guests who seem to be regular visitors and so they would appreciate the more quieter ambience. Our room was on the 3rd floor and we stayed on a B&B basis - mainly because we do like to venture out and about and, as previous reviewers have mentioned, there are plenty of restaurants around the resort and a walk to the harbour is a very pleasant jaunt along the coastal path. We had a lovely view of the sea and pool areas and couldn't fault it at all - very comfortable with everything you would need and the cleaning staff did an excellent job daily - no complaints at all with our room - maybe we were the lucky ones! As we were on B&B I can only comment on the breakfast (we were going to eat at the hotel at least on one occasion but my husband did not bring along any long trousers - and this is a strict rule so we had to forego this - didn't really mind though). The breakfast choice and food was excellent - this set us up for the day and we didn't have to eat again until the evening. The staff are always busy and friendly - and the ice towels mid afternoon around the pool were very welcome :) I can understand that if you want a bit more of a lively atmosphere this wouldn't be the hotel for you, but for us it was perfect and just what the doctor ordered. We are thinking of next year already - just hope we get as good a room as this year :)
Just arrived back from our 5th vist. Perfect for our needs perfectly, spotless and clean friendly ,staff excellent breakfasts ,convenient location pools and poolside bar fabulous, plenty of comfortable sun beds , would only stay here on our annual Cyprus holiday only negative would like the clock at the pool replacing
-Minor things. The food in the A La Carte restaurants was very expensive and the steaks more expensive than many establishments in London (though they were excellent). Drinks too were pricey and more expensive than is tourist traps like the harbour. Last minor gripe was that all the balcony lights are centrally controlled and go out at 11pm. Too bad if you like to sit out and read. +This has to be the cleanest hotel I have ever visited, and I have been to a lot! The staff were lovely and very helpful. The facilities were good and it was nice to have a cabana available to us every day as part of our package.
Ruhiges Hotel mit hauptsächlich eher älteren englischen Gästen. Angenehme Athmosphäre. Sehr schöne Hotelanlage. Wer mal ausspannen will, wird sich hier wohl fühlen!
After reading reviews on the hotel before booking this hotel and then reading some mixed reviews before I went I was a little apprehensive. We booked a Superior room on a All-Inclusive basis for 5 days. The hotel is an Adults only Hotel and this creates a very peaceful atmosphere, yes there are mixed ages there but all very friendly. I found the Hotel to be very clean, a little dated in some areas and AC inst in all areas i.e the toilets!. The Food was excellent to the Breakfast Restaurant that's included in the Premium Package to Lunch at the Olive tree...amazing Pizza's! We also ate here in the evening on numerous occasions and had an excellent meal, the staff were attentive and the Chef cam out to check everything was ok with our meals. On the whole we couldn't fault the food and Staff, they work extremely hard and If would have had a problem, Katrina who constantly walks round the hotel would have sorted it I'm sure. We had a late night arrival, the Night Receptionist was ok, but we arrived in our room to a lovely buffet plate of food, cakes and wine. I would certainly return to this hotel again it is 4 star but very well run.
This was our first trip to the Athena Royal and we booked a Superior Deluxe Sea View room (specifically to ensure we had a Cabana available for shade) on a B&B basis. We were delighted to be upgraded to a Junior Suite on arrival. I suspect there are more suites and Superior Deluxe Rooms. We were fully briefed by the Customer Service Manageress, who also showed us to our room on the relatively new 4th Floor. It was beautiful and had a full sea view. It was also the cleanest room (and hotel) I have seen, and I have seen a lot of hotels. As B&B guests we can only really comment on Breakfast and the 2 "A La Carte" meals we had in the hotel. Breakfast was uniformly excellent with a big choice of food and drinks. The A La Carte restaurant in the hotel ground floor was very busy and we were only offered an inside table when we arrived for our 8pm booking. We elected to wait 30 minutes until a table was available outside. This appeared to be an inconvenience. Whilst the food was very nice, 41 Euros for a steak is a bit steep! Nice steak, but I would pay less in London. The Olive Tree was okay, but nothing special. Fortunately there are lots of very good restaurants nearby, so we were not limited to the Hotel options. We were very impressed with the pools and the number of available sunbeds. I have seen people complain about the number of beds and their closeness. I can assure you that there a plenty of beds and spaced out more than most hotels I have seen. Anyone putting down their early morning towel, was clearly do it to get a specific potion, rather than securing a bed. The Cabanas were basic but served their purpose and had a lockable security box, so you could leave valuables there. Pool bar staff were always buzzing about and friendly. Special mention to the chap who came round with iced fruit and towels every day. Always polite and smiling. Now the few gripes we had. 1. I twice reported the cabana was infested with stinging ants and was told it had been dealt with. Every day we had to go round the Cabana with insect spray ourselves to kill them off. They lived in the curtains and woodwork and were very painful. I can't blame the hotel for ants, but I don't feel the work was done properly to solve the problem. 2. All balcony lights are controlled centrally and go off at 11pm. I like to sit on my balcony and read, listening to the sea. I couldn't do that after 11 and felt like a budgie being put to bed. 3. Alcoholic drinks were expensive and of poor quality. We tended to go out every night and explore the nightlife rather than suffer the evening entertainment in the hotel bar. However none of these things spoiled the holiday and we will return to this hotel happily.
It's ideal if you want to escape from daily stresses and enjoy the peace and quiet the hotel offers. It really was just what we needed, although I appreciate that's not to everyone's taste. The service round the pools and in the bar is excellent. The breakfast buffet is great with plenty of choice, including gluten free and loads of fresh fruit. We were on bed and breakfast package and generally didn't need to eat much after breakfast till evening. The evening meals were really good offering an excellent choice. Our room was spotlessly clean. We had a fabulous sea view. We thoroughly enjoyrd our stay and will come here again.
Kann man nur weiterempfehlen,da fehlt es an nichts.
The service provided by all staff was exemplary.The standard and choice of food and drink was excellent.
Hotel facilities were excellent, very friendly and attentive staff. restaurants were lovely with great quality food - something available for everyone. Swiimming pools very clean, grounds well maintained. All in all a very pleasurable trip and would recommend the Hotel to anyone
the staff are very courteous clean hotel lovely facilities,amazing buffet choice....we will be back
please dont change anything it was perfect!
we like it is clean and friendly. there ia space to do your own thing
The hotel is beautiful and very clean. The staff are lovely and very helpful. The only thing I can think of that I didnt like was the balcony lights going out at 11.
very clean. most people very friendly- lots of sunbeds and umbrellas.
Welcoming & friendly staff & we were always greeted with a smile throughout all areas of the hotel. The bedrooms are kept to a very high standard with all you could want including fruit & wine on arrival. The food choice in the restaurants is amazing. All areas both inside & out are immaculate & the general atmosphere is so relaxing. Would be unfair to name individual members of staff as they are all wonderful. Look forward to returning in September.
Could find no fault with this hotel. From the moment you arrive until you leave they make you feel welcome. Food was superb, everywhere is so clean and the staff very friendly. Swimming pools and beach areas are tremendous with many areas to relax.
great food ,very clean,excellent staff,definitely will be going again but next time will book a room with a sea view ,the view from the other view says you can see the sea at an angle but does not sat y the rest of the view is looking over the next door hotels back yard including skip and bags of rubish ,in spite of this the hotel is great ,so nearly 5 stars shame you dont allow four and a half
