Historical Traveller Reviews of Athena Beach Hotel
Can be recommendedfrom Bellfield
The Athena Beach has almost 500 rooms and at any time may have some 1,000 guests.
This hotel has beautiful grounds, spacious rooms, and excellent facilities. There are several outdoor pools, one of which is heated to a temperature which is genuinely comfortable to swim in, and there is a smaller heated indoor pool. These were important for us in March. There are extensive bowling greens with a professional coach. It has a gym which, unusually in our experience, has some good equipment.
The catering operation appears to be very well managed and the food is good in variety and quality.
As with most of these beach hotels it is much better to have a sea view because you have much more to look at from your balcony, get the sun, and avoid traffic noise from the coast road.
We had a few niggles. The twin beds, consisting of a firm mattress on a solid base, were uncomfortable. We had a room on the 4th floor below the flat roof, and suffered from an intermittent booming noise from the air conditioning plant. Smoking is permitted in parts of the dining room; although in practice we did not see anybody actually smoking.
Overall, though we would stay at this hotel again and recommend it. It is particuarly good at cooler times of year. Our room had very effective heating, which in March was welcome, and the many facilities can be used all year round.

t wait to go back!from A TripAdvisor Member
Best parts of the holiday: breakfast by the pool every morning (with complimentary sparkling wine on a Sunday!); relaxing pool area; sunbeds beneath shady palms in the garden; evening barbeque; day visit to Nicosia via Omodos in the Troodos Mountains.
Not so good: prices of drinks and measures are equivalent to British measures!
t have hoped for more for our wedding!from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff were very helpfull and the Hairdressers and beauticians worked miracals!
we got married in the gardens and it was at 5pm and got some excellent photos as the sunset.
the only down side to the wedding ceremony was that people sat down couldnt hear what the vicar was saying because her voice wasnt put through the p.a. system.
Apart from that the video and photos came back the same night for us to check out and the meal we had in the a la carte restaurant in the hotel was far beyond our expectations.
The wedding organiser from olympus was excellent too, she sorted all the flowers locally, all the papaerwork was done in 10mins (literally) and she even ushered every one around on the day!
Thank you so much for sorting it all athena beach!
If any one wants to see pictures of the wedding there go to www.markandaprilswedding.co.uk and have a nose at ours!

An ideal stay for our weddingfrom Super_Mazza
Our stay could not have been more perfect! The staff were excellent - everything we asked for was done, and always with a friendly manner. The hotel is in a quiet spot outside of the main harbour area but still in reasonable walking distance of attractions and restaurants. It has good facilities - we especially loved the swimming pool area and the outside terrace, oh and the piano bar. All of these were a big hit with our wedding guests. It was a perfect setting.
The hotel has its own hairdressing and beauty salon so I did not have to go far on the morning of my wedding! The staff here are also very good - they ordered champagne and nibbles without being asked when they saw me starting to stress out an hour before the wedding! This calmed me down!! I was very happy with the results of both my hair and make-up.
I know that there are more elusive hotels to stay in Paphos but the Athena Beach is really value for money and I have never been somewhere where the staff are so helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay, it was very relaxing and very peaceful.
Our only disappointment was the room which was quite standard but the beautiful view and balcony made up for that. And to be honest, we did not spend that much time in the room as the rest of the hotel was so lovely! Upon arrival, we asked for a free upgrade which you can apparently get as a wedding couple, but unfortunately there was not enough room. I had heard so many wonderful things about these rooms so was a bit disappointed.
Our other disappointment was that we had to come home!!

Top Local Tips for Paphos
Best times in Cyprus Cheaper in winter, but weather doesn't start getting better until mid-March.
Eatting out Take advantage of the set menues at the local tavernas where for around a fiver you can get an excellent 3 course meal with, at some, free wine.
bed and breakfast don't book full or half board many other lovely restaurants nearby and hire a car to get around this lovely island.
