I cannot believe the previous review! My husband and I also stayed at the Athena Royal for two weeks from April 23rd and we honestly cannot find a bad word to say about it. Our experience was vastly different from the previous reviewer.
We were married at the hotel on April 30th and the staff there did everything possible to ensure our special day was perfect- and it was! Nicoletta, the Guest Relations Manager was fantastic and made us feel like celebrities! Nothing was too much trouble and we will always have happy memories of our wedding and honeymoon.
We are in our late forties but still think we are 25 and would recommend the hotel to any like minded holiday makers. Sure, the first week there were a lot of older people but that was due to it being the last week of the winter season and a gorup of ballroom dancers were staying at the hotel. They were good fun though, and a couple of then gave us a bottle of Baileys to celebrate our big day!
There was a much younger crowd the second week, a lot of whom were repeat visitors. Everyone we spoke to praised the hotel and its' staff and some had already booked their next visit.
We were on bed and breadkast but ate at the hotel twice in the evening and just cannot fault the food. Champagne for breakfast every day, lots of choice of hot and cold food, with omelettes, eggs, bacon, crepes all being cooked to order. On our wedding night we ate in the Aphrodite A la Carte restaurant and had a fabulous meal.
We also like eating out and can recommend the following restaurants nearby: Cavallinis for a romantic Italian meal, Plaka for traditional Cypriot food and a great atmosphere, and Paco loco which is a new Mexican just opposite the hotel.
To say that Pphos has no culture is just laughable. The Tombs of the Kings, Aphrodite's Rock and the Mosaics are all close by. We hired a car and drove to Pissouri, Polis and Coral Bay. The harbour area in Paphos is currently undergoing a facelift and will be finished soon.
If you like karaoke nights, bingo, organised activities by the pool then the Athena Royal is not for you. However, if you prefer a peaceful relaxing atmosphere, attentive staff, great food and a stunning location then this will be you perfect hotel I would rate it as 5 star and not just because we had our wedding here. All guests were treated the same. We will definitely go back! I cannot recommend it highly enough
If you would like to ask me any questions about the hotel please feel free to get in touch.
