“Sunny Winter Break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

My Husband and I booked a fortnight all inclusive holiday to this Hotel via Thompsons last November. Due to a busy time since then i had planned to write this review a lot earlier. Better late than never.

We were wanting a relaxed break in a warmer climate and we wanted to fly from our nearest local Airport, to which this destination allowed us.

Our first impression when we arrived was a good one, as the location albeit in the dark seemed the best of the ones we had dropped previous holiday-makers off to on route. Welcomed with a refreshing drink, we only waited a short while to book in and a porter brought our suit cases to our room situated on the fourth floor, accessed by an elevator. Joseph gave us a tour of our room and informed us well of where everything was e.g. the safe, and i had to take his word for it that we had a sea view (which we had paid extra for), as by then our balcony was in complete darkness and one could only see the lite swimming pool. By morning we most definately had the most full view of a gorgeous blue sea and sky and the welcomed sight of the sun.

During the first few days like most people you find out your location, make sure you have the times of your meals, and get on with enjoying your stay.

Our first impression i must say was that we thought we had booked "a mature persons" holiday, as we are in our 50`s and thought we were the youngest. Glad that we went on to be-friend a couple of honey-mooners, and some Jordies who semed to like other peoples butter on their plates rather than acquiring from the main buffet area. This will only make sense to the couple whose company we so enjoyed and i feel it only right not to name and shame. Wished we had exchanged our contact addresses.

The food was plentiful, served on clean tables at all times. Varied and something for all. We feel all inclusive paid off for the amount we over-indulged in. Do take elasticated waist clothing girls.

The outdoor swimming pool was rather cold, but we did swim in it most days, at times all to ourselves. There was an option of a heated covered pool to which we gradually migrated too, along with a lot of others. The pool bar staff were great at keeping you hydrated, and they must walk miles a day. Some double up and you see them in the reception bar too. Afternoon tea or coffee and biscuits are a must, especially after having a long afternoon walk.

Walks can be taken from the exit of the Hotel in either direction, or you can pop on the bus which is approx every 15 minutes and you will not believe the distance you can go on a Euro. Puts the public transport costs in the UK to shame. Limassol especially the Old Town is worth a visit. Nice to pick up little gifts, and their linens are so reasonable, and jewellery. You can walk alongside the sea in both directions on a bumpy pathway, to the left takes you to the Marina with a few cafe/bars. to the right to ruins and a few cafes. Both pleasant strolls do take some water to drink as easily taken in to walking further than you plan!

Entertainment was not really a strong point at this Hotel. The reps were good singers and the few guest entertainers were ok but not brilliant and in fairness there was room for improvement. The Cyprus Guys that did dancing and a balancing act of shot glasses were worth watching. Other than that a female pianist in the lounge/bar once a week were the highlights.

There is a small shop in the Hotel that had a selection of gifts or the odd things one might have forgot to pack, or the chocolate/crisps you maybe craving. Local lady owns the shop and is finding it hard to stay open, so do support her, the prices i found were no different than down town, and food stuff fresher with the turn around.

The Gym was well stocked and was not used by many, my Husband took full advantage and i stopped after a few visits, not really my thing. But this was a part of the all inclusive and i am glad he used it. We both used the complimentry steam room though. Spa treatments a little expensive.

We did browse the library, where you can borrow whilst you stay,or ex-change what you have brought and leave for others, a brilliant idea. This is truly a total relaxing place to visit with ample time to read.

Dan the Rep was one of the nicest genuine human beings we have come across. He was honest in all that you asked of him, available when you needed him and did not bother you when you did not need him. Do hope we bump into him again.

All in all the location of the Alantica Bay we found a good one. The roads in Cyprus were most suitable to drive on and if we go there again we plan to hire a car to get out and about more, to see more of this beautiful friendly Country. This time we just wanted to chill, and we most definately did that. I would recommend upgrading, and the sea view has to be seen to be believed. We did meet guests that have stayed several times and have not been disappointed.

We did visit Paphos with the Thomson Tour, which actually was great value for money. Normally we avoid Reps Tours, but this one proved very popular. A full day, where you see a small Market, Tombs of the Kings (fascinating), houses of mosaics, Aphrodite`s rock and you get free time to walk around Paphos harbour. Our tour guide was absolutely brilliant. Compassionate regarding her Country`s History, and you learnt a lot from her that only an organised trip like this would deliver.

It is a really good and recommendable Beach Hotel (Beach is few Minutes walking away). It was good to relax, because it is not in the Main Tourist Center. It is little bit out of it. Good Food at their Restaurant (much choices and nice decorated). Room was in a nice and classic Design. We had adouble Room and Cleaning every Day was perfect. Very friendly Staff there (they all speak good english).

Went for 10 days in July 2012 and it was a great stay! The staff were all really friendly and helpful and there was many waiters that we made friends with and always ensured that we were looked after. The food was good in variety, especially the breakfast. There are a few stray cats and we frequently sat outside and gave them food - they're really friendly, so any cat lover will enjoy this extra. The al la carte restaurant was brilliant - great service from Dean. Was a really good stay and the rooms were lovely.

I am a bit late in reviewing this hotel as my wife and I travelled in September 2011and we have been away since then but thought I should write a small review. We have stayed at The Hotel before and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, as mentioned in other reviews the staff are all excellent and have plenty of time for you. We always travel All Inclusive and have noticed that if you book the hotel and then upgrade when you arrive, you get a slightly better price.The food is very good but not as good as some of the other Atlantica Hotels we have stayed at but never the less overall a good selection. There is in one thing that stands out for this hotel and that is that it does some of the best coxtails I have had for an all inclusive Hotel. The beach is very good and is only a short distance from the hotel.I did think this time that the hotel was looking a little tired and I am glad that it is now having a refurbishment.To summarise this is an excellent Hotel for couples who want a relaxing and pleasent holiday

Room Tip: If you can afford it get aroom with sea view

Just want to confirm the other great reviews about this hotel. Having stayed 5 star Mexico we are quite fussy about rooms and food quality , we have to say well done Atlantica Bay, you are not the most expensive but certainly value for money. Our room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and spacious. Food fantastic, would recommend anyone out and about to request a picnic nice touch! We hired a car through the hotel cheaper than other companies delivered on time clean and reliable. Beach bar a breath of fresh air comfy seats and fantastic service. Nice walks along the beach morning or daytime. Plenty of sun beds. Good waiter service. Lobby bar fantastic service, nice touch the nuts and popcorn . Entrainment much the same as other hotels but the two Lauren's were welcoming and got you involved making friends along the way. We hope to return 2013.
ps I am a cat lover and this hotel was fantastic a few cats around hotel all treat well by staff loved the ginger one with a bushy tail that often wandered around reception!

First week at this hotel was superb,Food could have been warmer
but everything else was good.

Second week was a total let down
They were closing for electrical refurbishing, Thomson`s never informed us,
Sunbeds started to disappear from the pool,waiter service also went with beds.
choice of meals disappeared given a set menu
The ballroom was taken away we had to watch some very limited entertainment ni the lobby bar.
The heated pool was turned off
we felt like we were not really wanted there

Informed Thomson
there reply was we don't tell people that the hotel is going to shut as booking drop offer £35 voucher as a apology

Moral of the don't book late holidays or ask Thompson`s if there is any work being carried out as this is obviously not given freely

Hotel is beautiful and maintained to a high standard both inside and out. Staff are excellent and can't do enough for you. The holiday reps are great too. Hotel has great pools although its s little walk across a not too busy road to the beach. Situated a good distance from Limassol centre it's ideal if you're looking for somewhere quiet yet quality. The local bus service stops right outside he hotel and is very cheap. Takes about 20 mins to get into Limassol. All in all a great holiday. My wife and I have been a number of times.
