“Quality beach front hotel”
Reviewed May 27, 2009

Stayed here for 3 nights earlier this month to attend a wedding. The entire wedding party had been transferred as a result of the Azia Blue being leased out to Canadian troops, although the wedding was still held at the Azia. Actually had a result in being transferred as the Athena's location is much better and is considerably nearer to the airport and the harbour. Paphos has changed very much since we last visited it 13 years ago, with the Athena one of several quality beach front 4* hotels along side each other, all of which are a 20 to 30 minute stroll to the harbour areaa.

Room (001 - ground floor terrace) was very good, well furnished and the view of the sea was outstanding. Stayed on a bed & breakfast basis , which was fine with a very good selection of food, with pancakes, omelettes and eggs cooked to order. The hotel staff were very friendly, in particular the younger reception personnel who seem to represent the high values of the owners (Constantinou Bros). The entire hotel is spotless, with very good facilities, although the bar prices were quite steep. Turn left out of the hotel and walk for about 5 minutes to an area where you will find cheaper bars (Pegasus and Crocodile) and good value restaurants (Rimini was very good).

Overall this hotel offers quality and excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Stayed at these hotel apartments for one year. Nice airy and bright apartments. Reasonable quality furnishing. Nice roof pool. Has a gym but the hotel will not replace broken/worn out equipment so it not as good as when I moved in. Rooms cleaned 2 times a week. OK for long term but very expensive short term.

We are foodies but never left the hotel as the food was so good both in quality,quantity and variety, though we were on a special HB deal. Fish dishes are a tad disappointing but on a buffet they usually are. To avoid eating far too much we had lunch in our room, muesli + milk or similar. Hotel wine was fully priced but as each room has its own fridge, there you have the alternative. The Cava/La Piazza supermarket opposite the Athena Royale offers very good prices and its cartons of table wine ( made by KEO the beer people) are a steal.
The bus into town is 1.30E to go even right to the depot which is in the main hilltop town centre (M& S, Next etc there) and one day we walked from there seawards to the Tomb of the Kings and thence back to the hotel via the harbour.
We had a sea view room ( based on recommendations on this site) and were very pleased with it. Staff are good, especially Guest Services who will even try and find you tennis partners etc. The Kids water slide splash was a huge hit. The card room was never used for cards in the 11nts we were there. Take plenty of books- few there.

We stayed at the Athena Beach Hotel for 2 weeks in May 2009 and we had a great time. The hotel itself is very nice and the staff are very helpful and are at hand for any query you have.

We arrived at the hotel and greeted by a hotel rep who escorted us to the check in desk while the porter obtained our luggage. The hotel entrance/lobby is very grand and you can see the sea through the windows at the back. Very well designed for first impressions. (as long it is sunny!!)
A quick and easy check in then we were escorted to our room by the porter, other people in our group were told to go to the room and the bags would be delivered shortly to which they were. Others did choose to take the luggage themselves which the hotel has no problem with.

We had a room on the ground floor (160) which did not have a sea view as you need to pay extra for that. Our view was of the car park which to be honest I did not mind as I do not relax or get a tan in the room. To note the patio door leading to the balcony was double glazed and we did not hear a thing once shut. The room was nice although I must admit I was expecting more from the first impression of the lobby but nether the less it was nice. TV, hairdryer, iron and board, air con, safe (pay extra 6 euros per week), robes and nice clean bathroom with a good shower. Our room was cleaned everyday.

The main restaurant is a located on the ground floor and is quite large, we had no problems in finding a table even as a large party. The buffet has a large selection of food and is cooked to a high standard. There was plenty of choice and they will even provide you with a children’s menu as well although you will need to ask for this and a few of the waiters were not aware of this option so just make sure you push for it.
However there are 2 issues I have with the restaurant and they are - It was far to hot and they would not open the doors to let some air in and this caused a problem with my 10 month old nephew who got very grumpy after a while because he was too hot! Secondly the head waiter who was an older man with grey hair and was the only person to wear a suit was extremely grumpy when ever we asked for anything, my impression was that if you had children then he did not like you, he was very dismissive. Now this is a shame as all of the other staffs were fantastic!!!

The pools and grounds were very well kept and there were plenty of sun beds available for everyone even when the hotel was at 92% capacity. (Please note someone else told me this who were sad enough to ask) They have a slide for children although plenty of adults used it as well, kids pool and 2 other pools that varied in depth. Further to this they do have an heated indoor pool as well.

The reason for our trip was for my mothers wedding which I may say went very well. The day was well organised despite 4 different wedding planers from when it was first booked to the actual day and again the food was fantastic. They even cornered a section off in the main bar which was not requested.

One more point would unfortunately be a negative one for me as I thought the drinks were very over priced in the hotel and not much better in the town. Now I know this is due to the Euro not doing very well to the Pound but over 6 euros for a Malibu and Coke is in my eyes expensive.

Other than that we had a great time at Athena Beach Hotel, the staff were great, the setting was great, the food was great. The hotel itself was just far enough out of town for me with a walking time of around 10 mins to get to the main bars etc.

I would stay here again.

Just got back from 2 weeks at Athena Beach. Weather was great but had rain last few days although some of it was teatime.

Hotel is very nice and very clean. The pools and gardens make this hotel. Yes the rooms and some of the other areas are dated but hey your not staying in a 5 star. The pools are fab the only downside they are still too cold at this time of year. You can brave it for prob 10 mins but with a 3 year old its not too good. She spent most of the time in the indoor pool which is accessed by the outside pool area. The pool slide kept alot of children entertained.

The breakfast is fantatstic, champagne inc on a Sunday. We ate here a couple of times in the evening and the price is reasonable. Food was good. Only downside for me was the Ledra Restaurant at lunch isn't great but there is a fantastic cafe at the supermarket over the road.
Take lots of money its very expensive for us Brits with the Euro so low.
A pint in the hotel 3.90 but you can get it for 2 outside.
Steaks ranging from 18 to 24 euros.

Nothing much for kids at this hotel although they are starting a childrens club.
The fiesta bar over the road has things to keep them entertained while your having a drink.

Didn't rate any of the restaurants on the complex opp the hotel. They are expensive. The pub is ok.
If you walk towards the harbour on the road you'll come to a triangle of bars/restaurants. We ate at the sunbou and da vincis both ok. The best though is the rib shack on the road just before, same side as hotel, it doubles as an indian and is one of the best i've had!!!

Buses to harbour run every 15 mins and its about 1 euro. You can walk its about 25 mins. you can take the coastal path upto the Alexander but then have to get back to road as they are doing work.

If your taking kids have a look at the Aliathon Village. Its opp this hotel and is fab, we had a walk round.

Hotel was great, it was the best hotel I have ever stayed at for sunbeds. Germans - yes but NO towels. The lovely gardens, superb with flowers gently ran down to the grass and then on to the sand and beach. There was a multitude of sunbeds so you could choose wherever. Just the greatest when you love listening to the sea and love the sun! Pools were cold, sea was cold but I managed both just the twice! No mozzies at that time of the year. Would suggest you need a jacket in the evening. Harbour was great to stroll along many lovely restaurants. We had half board food was great so much to choose from. We had a sea view after a little problem with room 154! Room 1307 was good! Enjoy Cyprus it is wonderful you can use your hairdryer without an adaptor, they speak English and really like us, and they drive on the same side of the road as us. Just enjoy one of the best places abroad.

The hotel staff were all extremely helpful, especially the ladies at the customer service desk. They would always have a cheerful word as you pass the desk and their knowledge added greatly to our holiday experience.

We had adjoining rooms and can't complain about anything. The pool and beach areas were very spacious and we could always find enough sun beds.

The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a hotel. We ate out at night and had some great meals locally. Being October the area was a lot less busy than the summer months, although the weather was perfect.

The only thing I would advise against is hiring a car without checking it thoroughly before paying - the middle seat belt in ours was not connected to anything.
