“A beautiful hotel with friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I stayed at Adams Beach for my Mum's wedding, which took place in the hotel's chapel by the sea. The service was very friendly, especially the lady who checks you in for breakfast in the mornings, and all of the bar staff; some also recognised me from my Mum's big day and were quick to approach and make pleasant conversation.

The Glasshouse Restaurant was spectacular. We had our evening meal there on the night of the wedding. Our table was on the terrace with views over Nissi Bay with Ayia Napa further ahead in the distance. The food was incredible; it was both delicious and very well presented. The waitresses were also exceptionally friendly.

Food & drink: The breakfast is very tasty with plenty of choice, including both traditional English and continental. The drinks in the hotel are quite expensive though. The piano bar is lovely for a relaxing drink but it was a shame that it was fairly empty most nights. There is also a sushi restaurant on the beach.

Hotel rooms: Tea/coffee-making facilities aren't provided. Fairly basic but I guess this isn't a problem since so little time is spent there. Olive body lotions and shampoos are provided. Hairdryers are also provided. Air Con is included. You have to pay to use the safe. There is a TV with the typical world news channels. The hotel also offers deluxe suites with private pools now as well as the Honeymoon Suites.

Location: The hotel has its own beach with beautiful turquoise sea to swim in. Round the cove there is also Nissi Bay which is usually very busy but has a range of water activities. It is a bit of a walk into the centre of Ayia Napa however the bus runs pretty regularly and there is a stop just outside the hotel. We frequently used the taxis which were 8 euros into the town centre.

Wedding: Evelyn planned the wedding for my Mum and now-husband. She was incredibly friendly and everyone enjoyed the day. The chapel is beautiful with impressive paintings on the ceiling but can only fit in around 15 people max. Some of the other guests were quite rude however and were insistent on squishing into the lift with the bride when we were trying to get to the chapel! Another problem was the chaplain (Simon Holloway) turned up 45 mins late so my poor Mum had to hang around outside the chapel and looked like she had been jilted to the onlooking guests. He also wasn't too apologetic once he arrived. Apart from the chaplain the day was beautiful.

Evening entertainment: this was a little dubious! We spent one evening by the outdoor stage and bar. I don't think the choice of entertainment was entirely appropriate given that all of the audience were members of families and the front row was made up of an average age of about 5/6. It consisted of a group of dancers dressed in skimpy Russian peasant outfits, lifting their legs over their heads and occasionally bending over at the front of the stage (directly in front of the toddlers!) and flashing the audience with their g-strings. However given that we were a group of adults we found the situation completely hilarious.

Overall perhaps the hotel isn't quite a 5* however none of these typical beach holiday hotels never are as high as they claim to be. If you want a comfortable stay, close to the beach and with guaranteed weather then you can't go far wrong here.

How wonderful it was for us when we went into the Glasshouse Restaurant on the roof of the hotel, only to find that the manager Cleanthis was there, he was one of the people who organised our wedding at the hotel three years ago. A great character, good fun, and a real asset to the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks. On arrival our check in was fine, fast and efficient. We arrived very hungry so went for food before seeing the room. We found most places closed. We ended up being sent to the restaurant which serves fish on beach front. Food wasn't the best but was ok. Got an omelette from child's menu arrived very burnt underneath which was hidden when served. The same thing happened a few days later.

The room was basic, flowery and old fashioned. We'd paid more money for superior, I'd hate to think what the basic room is like.

The breakfast was a major disappointment. No fresh omelettes. The bacon was awful, very fatty and stringy. Congealed omelette in trays left under heat lamp, resorted to cereal most of time. No fresh fruit at all, only tinned stuff left in juice. The on site shop sells fruit so ended up buying it. We've stayed 5* all over the world and this was most disappointing by far.

The pool areas of this hotel were fantastic. We have a toddler and he spent lots of time in pools enjoying himself.

The sushi bar we ate at many times. The food was delicious. We ate lots of different things from menu and were not unhappy by any choices, highly recommended.

There is no free wifi in hotel even in lobby ways, which on this day and age is just a rip off to have to pay for wifi. The hotel suggested that we go to restaurants next door as its free.

I don't normally have many bad things to say about 5* resorts but this one wasn't one of my best holidays and the hotel was 3* at best. My advice go somewhere that you get more value for your money. That's newer and not so dated.

Not the hotels fault but its a very miserable hotel with not a lot of smiles or conversation due to the number of guests, 90% Russian occupancy. They sit there not speaking to anyone nor eachother. It's not friendly and the atmosphere was ruined by this. We left the hotel most nights to go somewhere more happier, friendly and lively.

Overall, would I go back, No. Did I enjoy my time, suppose so but could have been better. I'm left feeling a bit disappointed.

We’ve just returned from a long weekend spent at Adams’s Beach Hotel (4 nights). Despite the impressive reception space, this hotel is not a 5* one. The check-in was way too long, every form was filled out by hand and standing there with 2 tired kids around was not the best thing to do at 11 pm. We were on B&B basis, but nobody explained what eating options we had, what restaurants the hotel has, we had to find out ourselves.
The room was very dated and very dark (we had a queen suite in some sort of bungalows near the main building, but very close to the pools). The bed in the main bedroom was very small, not one that you would expect to have in a 5* hotel, with pillows that looked like dirty. The cleaning was not at its best, especially in the bathroom and the towels were worn out and grey instead of white.
The food was 2*at best, not at all appealing, with not many options for a healthy eater/vegetarian. No fruit at breakfast – big surprise for a 5 star hotel - just a “fruit salad” prepared the evening before I guess, judging by taste and appearance. Too many potatoes (they are cheap, I know), too much pastry and meat which seemed to be the best for the Russians (the majority in the hotel), who are big eaters - still amazed about how they piled their plates with the most amazing combinations. Not much variety for dinner either, pretty much the same menu every evening and the soup from lunch was on display at dinner as well. The tables in the Dionysos Tavern are very close to each other and the restaurant is too crowded, which made us quite uncomfortable.
The location of the hotel is great however, the pools and slides were very much enjoyed by our daughters who had a great time bathing all day long.
We were glad we booked only for a weekend and not for a whole week. There will be no “next time“ for us here – it proved to be a too big and too crowded hotel for our taste.

My son and I booked here as we were let down by First Choice, as part of a wedding party we had had our booking cancelled! Adams Beach and Enable Holidays certainly fixed our concerns. The hotel is superb, and they went out of their way to help us (my son is a wheel chair user).

The facilities are excellent, and my son found everywhere accessible - he could even get his chair down to the beach and around the rocky headland....... although not listed as a disabled room, both the room and bathroom were well able to cope with his needs..... Staff in restaurant and bars where really friendly (if you get past the head waiter in the restaurant!!) and the management, especially the bar staff were lovely..... would definitely recommend. For a paraplegic, this facility should be marketed better, as it offers excellent access without appearing as a disabled facility!!! Certainly helped us to enjoy the wedding (at another hotel) only wish the whole wedding had been booked here!

Just arrived home from a great week at The Adams Beach Hotel- what a treat! We arrived well before our check in time but were made to feel very welcome while a room was sorted out for us. Amazingly we were upgraded to the Delux Wing- result! The room was stunning, large and well equipped. The wing was for adults only but just to top it off we had a private pool, only for those staying in the Delux wing!! It was a little like paradise! No banging music- no frolicking children just the sound of the sea- bliss. The staff were lovely- attentive but not overbearing- always friendly and up for a bit of banter. I've stayed in some great hotels around the world but quite frankly this close to the top purely for the staff. We were invited to glass of fizz in the Piano bar where we met the owner as well as some other staff, what a lovely touch. The food was lush, breakfast was a feast, everything you could wish for and a bit more! For lunch and dinner there were an array of restaurants your could chose from. Even room service was absolutely fab. Please try the Glasshouse on the top floor- sensational! Great views, great wine and the food......I had the best steak I have ever, ever had- rib eye, melt in the mouth and HUGE portions.
The location of the hotel again was perfect- only a 15 minute walk into the party town but if the lure of the bars and clubs isn't for you then you are far enough away not to get involved. As for us, we partied hard every night and slept it off around the tranquil pool every day!
For a beautiful authentic restaurant try Taverna Napa- a 5 minute taxi ride away. Again the hospitality and food were lovely.
From the porters to the taxi drivers, we were treated like royaliy- truly spolit.
Thank you to every one at Adams Beach Hotel for making our week so special, we hope to be back next year.
P.s they also doing beautiful weddings- if I wasn't married already I'd get married here!!

Room Tip: Delux wing is so quite you will love it

I would rate this hotel as a 3 to 4 star. There is an issue of cleaning properly. The loo was not in my opinion very hygienic or cleaned well enough.

The staff at the front desk put us off from the word go with their snobbish attitude and the way they look down upon their package customers. I would venture to guess that without the tour operators their hotel might not have been so full.

The only staff that were consistently pleasant were the catering staff, the housekeeping staff and the concierge staff.

When checking out they would not even allow use of your own mobile device until your bus collects you (8 hours later!!!) and cheekily offered us to purchase wifi access to their computers in the basement only. What a farce.

Pillows were flat, and the air con was not really controllable. You do not get beach towels your first or last day so do take your own, but be prepared to explain to the staff when they question you on the beach with a non hotel towel on your seat.

Our stay was B&B and loads of choice for breakfast, but would have loved to have a cuppa in my room - and some space in the mini bar for my own things to chill.

Room Tip: If you go for a package just do not bother with upgrading, you are hardly in your room anyway with s...
