We love this hotel, as returning guests and find all the staff to always be friendly, kind and caring. Nothing is too much trouble. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the beds amazingly comfortable. The sea views are superb, the pools and all facilities and gardens so well kept.

We have just returned from our third visit to this hotel. We love it...the service,the staff,the food and the setting ,everything is just perfect.The only little thing that lets it down is the entertainment. There are a couple of acts which are reasonably good but there are some that are definitely not. This wouldn't stop us going back.
5th time of visiting this hotel, October 2018, was very pleased that we were upgrade to junior suite, room 4415. Thank You to hotel management. Again found all staff and management very helpful and pleasant, food excellent. Can recommend flambé night. Al a cart restaurant staff and food excellent, also pygmalion restaurant food very good, also olive tree and pool bar very good.Cannot find anything to fault. Booked to go back again March 2019, looking forward to holiday, and seeing all the staff again.
We went there for our anniversary, brillant hotel rooms fabulous food great, but the best of all were the staff so very friendly, we met people who had returned year after year and we could understand why, right on the beach lovely pools Would recommend this hotel
We visited this hotel for the fourth time in October 2018. As always it was fantastic. The staff are very welcoming, the rooms are very comfortable and the food is excellent. Don't miss Matthew Edmondson on Monday night in the lounge bar and also go and see George for the wine tasting and cocktail making.The management team are always around to help or just for a chat.We will definitely be coming back.
We stayed at this hotel as a family of 11 for my 60th birthday. It was perfect. The hotel was amazing with wonderful food. Having all inclusive when there is a crowd of you is the best way forward. We will definitely return. Thank you to everyone who works tirelessly at this hotel. You made our holiday a truly memorable one.
we have gone to this hotel every year since it opened and have always found it to be ecellent for our requirements until this year when a number of issues were raised. Firstly ther seems to be an area of eletism creeping in with top floor guests having special check in facilities over other guests. The new floor has also created an issue with the evening restaurant being too busy and many guests being turned away and asked to either wait or go downstairs to the lower ground floor restaurant which is completely lacking in atmosphere.Our group required a table for four each day but had to wait almost every day. This has never happened before and when we asked if we could have a table reserves each day we were told no.The hot pudding was always only luke warm owing to the lid of the turene being removed and also the custard was always cold. Very dissapointing after many years of not experiencing any problems at all.I trust the senior management will address thses issues before we rebook.
A very well maintained and run hotel. Staff were fabulous. Food choice and quality superb. Junior suite perfect. Pool was freezing but some people managed to swim,we didn’t. A lot of the clients are older adults so don’t expect a lively, party atmosphere or especially young clientele. I guess average age was 70 but it was quiet, relaxed and suited our needs and we’re in our early 40s. Definitely recommend this hotel and definitely would go back.
This was our 3rd visit to this hotel and have already booked 2 holidays for next year. The staff can’t do enough for you and although only rated 4 Star is worthy of 5 Star status. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the gardens are beautifully maintained. There are ample sun loungers. Pool staff do an excellent job bringing drinks to you. Olive Tree restaurant is first class both at lunchtime and evening. A special thank you to Pavel, Irene and Patrick who went the extra mile. Aphrodite was also excellent as was Lucien and Alina who always made us very welcome and provided a first class service. Our room was a junior suite on the 4th floor and was spacious with a lovely bathroom. I can’t fault this hotel and am looking forward to returning in 2019. Kind regards Mick and Carol Lowe
First time we have stayed at this hotel in October (usually it is September).Weather superb as well as the service, would come back at this time of year again.Restaurants nearby not too busy so easy to just turn up, no booking required.
Adults only and a quiet peaceful enviroment. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome and valued. Best breakfast selection we have ever experienced. The hotel is spotlessly clean. Well appointed rooms with comfortable beds. Very nice massage by Katerina at the Elixir Spa. We enjoyed joining in with the bowling programme which was well organised by Ann and Trevor. Great location and views. We will be returning and passing on our recommendations to family and friends. Cannot think of any negative comments. The hotel and staff are a credit to the Constantinou Bros organisation.
like the efficient and friendly staff. like quitness of the garden area. very good food. like to have better access to swim in the sea. we willbe back
I liked the service. Disliked the severely cold water in the swimming pool.
Everything was excellent except I did not consider the bathroom of room 1109 to be of superior standard.
We returned for our eleventh visit in October, late for us. As in previous years we were treated as old friends, which we like to think we now are. There was a shortage of staff at this time as many of the youngsters had returned to their studies, although very busy the staff were as always courteous and on the whole willing to please and make our stay relaxing and comfortable. The weather was still very warm, we had a couple of days of thunder and the BBQ night was cancelled due to the threat of rain which didn't materialise. One customer complained because some people were wearing shorts (allowed on BBQ nights) The following day we did have a little rain but this was at 5pm so didn't spoil anything. The pools at this time of year are cold, which if you normally go in the summer months you will appreciate was a bit of a shock. I am not going to single out any particular member of staff because for us from the cleaners to Nikoletta and Dino all worked extremely hard. A stay at the Royal is not a party every minute but if you want a nice relaxing holiday with good food, comfortable rooms, plenty of sunbeds and a pleasant atmosphere then this is it
I’ve just returned from a week at the above hotel with my Husband, his Brother and his Brothers wife. The hotel in general is lovely. Some parts are a bit tired, i.e the bathrooms, but extremely clean, everywhere. It’s an adult only hotel. The food was lovely as were the majority of staff. We were half board and you got the chance to change your evening meal for lunch if you wanted to. There were some lovely restaurants within walking distance. I would have given maybe 5 * if it hadn’t been for a member of staff who unfortunately spoilt our last memory of the holiday. We had to check out of our rooms at 12.00 midday but as no one was in our rooms after us we were allowed to keep them for an extra two hours and as we weren’t being picked up until 18.50 this came in handy. One of the receptionists wasn’t quite as friendly as the others. I had cause to ask her a couple of questions and she was very abrupt, made you feel a bit stupid for asking a question. I think her name was Suzanne but I apologise if that is wrong. She was a German lady. When we checked out, we asked if we could still have our lunch in the hotel. We weren’t sure how it worked, so asked the question. We were told that we could possibly have some lunch vouchers but this had to be checked. We were then asked what time we checked in on arrival day. Non of us could remember exactly but knew that it was a couple of minutes before 22.00 when we popped into the restaurant hoping to get something to eat. The restaurant was closing but we were allowed to grab a small plate and had a couple of crackers and a bit of cheese. This, according to the not so friendly receptionist constituted a meal, so she didn’t think we would be able to have food vouchers but would check with the manager! However, she didn’t check with the manager but decided to check what time we arrived which apparently was 9.30 and because of this, she stated that we had had plenty of time to go and have a meal. I pointed out to her that by the time we had filled all the forms in and had our passports photocopied and all the other things you do on checkin it was two minutes to 10!!! Her whole manner was very condescending and my husband was furious that she had checked up on us rather than check with the manager like she said, so we decided to eat outside of the hotel. Not the way we wanted to end our holiday!!!
The hotel staff are very welcoming and everyone of them works very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is in a great location on the main road into Paphos, you can walk to the harbour in 20 minutes along a flat very well maintained promenade. There are also plenty of buses that stop right outside the hotel. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the food is fresh and has enough choice for all tastes which is sometimes not the case with buffets. The rooms are large and have really nice balconies, my room was at the front of the hotel with a mountain view. These rooms do not get the sun on them so remain cooler than those with a sea view which is nice unless you want to sit and watch the sun go down in the evenings but it was okay for me. I would definitely visit this hotel again.
Our first time staying at The Athena Royal Beach Hotel. We have had many great holidays however I don't think I have ever used the word Perfect to describe a hotel. From our check in late on a Sunday evening having been delayed leaving the UK to the handshake as we left the hotel for our return flight thanking us for staying there and wishing us a safe journey home Normally you find someone at a hotel who stands out for their service, here they all do. Friendly, happy, smiling and helpful people wherever you went. It is easy to understand why so many people seem to return here year after year. Our room was fantastic and serviced everyday to a very high standard. The evening turn down service was punctual and just as efficient. The choice and quality of food was excellent be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the buffet restaurants or the A la Carte restaurant in the evening. The Olive Tree Cafe offered a different menu for lunch but maintained the high standards in all areas. Service in the bar was quick and friendly with lots of people running about keeping the guests happy. Plenty of sun beds, low key entertainment, a good quality gym and a friendly and helpful reception team. The hotel was kept spotlessly clean. So Perfect seems a pretty good description. Thank you. Chris and Vanessa.
Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at the Athena Royal. I had high expectations having read all the reviews but it was even better than I hoped for. The view from our room was as idyllic as it gets, the hotel and grounds were immaculate and the staff were brilliant. We went half board - the breakfast choice was superb and the buffet in the evening was just as good. I’d go B & B next time though just because there are so many places to eat out. It’s hard to single out particular staff but Katerina looked after us and Eva in the restaurant was lovely. The only thing I didn’t rate was the evening entertainment which was very ‘tame’ but that’s just a personal thing plus there are plenty of places within walking distance of the hotel. Will definitely be back later in the year.
Visited for the second time this year arriving late on 27th October, check in was very welcoming, supper on a tray waiting for us. The staff are fantastic Maria and Eva at breakfast time, nothing too much trouble. Corina and Ileana in the olive grove at lunch time what a warm welcome every day both lovely ladies. Lucien providing the perfect setting and attention to detail in the A La Carte restaurant, a very special person. The chef who cooked our superb meals every evening and came to our table to check we had enjoyed our meal, what a lovely man, The ladies who made up our room everyday and brought us water every evening.never without a smile always good humoured, the girls who work tirelessly in the bar area at night they constantly offer excellent service. We will be back and look forward to seeing everyone again and thank you all for making our holiday so very enjoyable - Joan and Stuart.
