We were very satisfied with the Athena Royal Beach.
The gardens and pool area are great with plenty of sunbeds with parasols, and plenty of room between the sun beds.
No children and no loud music made for a very relaxing holiday.
The rooms are planned very well and have facilities not always found in european hotels such as tea making facilities and ironing board.
The hotels buffet restaurant was very good and we also enjoyed a meal in the al a carte restaurant.
The so called Cypriot restaurants around the hotel were disappointing but would agree with previous reviews that Gabor and Cavallinis were very good.
However, much as we enjoyed The Athena Royal Beach we found Paphos and the surrounding area left a lot to be desired.
We only holiday for a week so our hire car is usually used to seek out nice beaches and to find somewhere different for lunch rather than lengthy sightseeing, but we failed to find either a quality beach or taverna anywhere within a hours drive.
Paphos harbour area was admittedly under renovation at the time of our visit but the harbour restaurants were poor and the shopping non-existent.
Clearly I had not read between the lines in the brochures but I really had expected Paphos to be more "Greek" and was very disappointed. Even supposedly tourist traps on the Spanish Costas often have a quaint old town area and nice beaches.
In conclusion its a pity the Athena Royal Beach isn't somewhere else because it is a great hotel in the wrong place
