Historical Traveller Reviews of Atlantica Bay Hotel
Lovely Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Hotel and staff are lovely. Nothing too much trouble. Plenty of good food to choose from.
Not a lot to do around hotel so we hired a car for a week and visited other parts of Cyprus. Try V.H. Michaels for car hire - much cheaper than europcar.(Just down road to left or ask for Valentino - head barman).
Buses into Limassol straight outside hotel 80 cents anywhere on route.
Take the drinks package (Shame about the yellow bands you have to wear). This cost 9.75 each per day but well worth it when a vodka and coke was 3.70, coffee 1.50 - it soon adds up and you also get a kettle in your room if you take out this option.
Don't bother to take an iron there is an ironing room on each floor.
Building works at the side did not bother us as main building has been done (for the moment - but lots more work to be done).
WILL GO AGAIN.
Fantastic Hotel and Stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
The food was excellent with plenty of choice. Could not fault the Entertainers and Reps, they were a vital part of the Holiday experience.
We hired a car prior to our Departure, and travelled all over the Island.
I would deffinitely recommend the Hotel to other people.
Hope to go back again.
Service was Superbfrom Norrie111
The service was excellent,the waiting staff are brilliant,and cant do enough for their guests,room service was fast and food was hot on arrival at the room,which was lovely too.
The entertainment was mainly done by the reps, but was good fun,and enjoyable.
The hotel was very clean,and the shop was handy too.
The food was good,tho' once or twice could have been warmer,but this was remedied as soon as was brought to the chefs notice.
We are hoping to return again,later in the year.
The weather in the first week of January was good,with two days of warm rain. Buses to twon are regular,and cost only 80cents.
If you are into Ancient Ruins,Byzantine and Roman, I recommend the ruins at Amathus only 200 yds or so twoards town from the hotel.
I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to anyone thinking of going there.
Fabulous Holiday - Great hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good Hotelfrom steplulu
Lobby big and bright.Nice Swimming Pool and beautiful Big Patio good for reading and drink in both area.
In the evening good entertainment in the Ballroom.
Food very average but I believe in summer they do much better. Because low season the hotel only adults if you need a relax and peaceful holiday this is a good time to go.
Very Friendly staffs, especially one call Doras, very good service.

Lovely Weather!from SH1
Fab hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The pools are lovely, there are 2, but in November they are far too cold to go in which is a shame.
The weather was about 23 every day, and we went mid November.
My only complaint is the price of the drinks in the hotel as they are exensive, if you want cheaper drinks, 70 cents on the bus will take you to the tourist area where the drinks are at least half the price of the hotel. You can do all inclusive, we didn't but if we went again we would do it.
If you go, have a wonderful time, there are no children too!
The weather was nice!from BHH
THE LOCATION: could be better! there is a road at the back of the hotel (swimming pool side) which hosts all sorts of traffic! and as they are keen on there cars and motorbikes out there, fast acceleration seemed to be the name of the game! and if like us you walk to the local shops be very careful when crossing at the dual carriageway part as they are not to fussed on what side of the road they want to travel on...
THE BEACH: we thought their local beach was terrible! and as we are beach people it was dissapointing having to sit at the pool for a week! but again it didn't actually spoil the holiday!
THE FOOD: very basic! very repetative! the cooks are always walking around with a tray of something constantly replenishing (and they do like you to get out of their way)you order your drinks when seated, but never actually got the drink until half way through the meal! The Al a'Carte restaurant is worth a look, an the food is presented well...but if asking for the cheeseboard be aware!! it arrives saturated in olive oil...whats all that about!!!!!
THE POOL: given the heat of the day the pool was extremly cold! and only saw no more than three persons use it all week! we watched some chap jump in and he commented that it took his breath away and had a bit of difficulty getting to the side! so beware! But was kept clean every day as with the grounds! It is worth noting that right next door is a villa complex being built! so builders and noise go hand in hand here (06.00am start) as with an old club opposite the hotel (pool side) which they choose to dig up the concrete each day which was again noisy! but it wasn't constant!...oh! and the flies around the pool will get you down! they say they only land on S*** but we tried numerous different sunbeds and everyone suffered the same!
ENTERTAINMENT: very basic! the 3pm quiz round the pool happened once! which was a shame as it sort of broke the ice with fellow holiday makers! usual other games were well represented though! The resident group 'Midas Touch' were very professional....but! given all the electronic wizardry (used to great effect)wished they had chosen more upbeat songs...if I hear 'Bobby's Girl' one more time....(constructive critism Midas Touch...sorry!!)
OVERALL: it's fair to say we did have a relaxing week!..but would not return back either to this hotel or Cyprus, back to the Caribbean I'm afraid!
I would be happy to answer (honestly) any other questions so email address attached!
Top Local Tips for Limassol
Weather I don't think the weather matters very much because there is so much to see and do. We had rain but it didn't really bother us. We plan on going again in October when we hope it will be a little bit warmer than February
Value bus fares Buses stop right outside the hotel and the bus to Limassol has a cheap flat fare no matter how far into town you go (Bus nos 12 and 30)
march weather very dissapointing weather, very cloudy and windy, but alot better than england!
