Historical Traveller Reviews of Paphos Amathus Beach Hotel

Beware

from holidayfever
We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Amathus Beach one week of which was certainly below our high expectations of this 5* Hotel. We had been there for 4 nights after which to our horror a large group of about 80 people arrived from a company in the UK. We heard varying stories why they were there ie a seminar (highly unlikely) or a treat for some shareholders. The week they were there was a nightmare. It was extremely difficult to get sunbeds and even more difficult to get served in the bars and restaurants and even around the pool. The pool bar was impossible to use as they monopolised it for hours using up all of the tables throughout the lunchtime period. Whenever they arrived in any one place the other guests were totally neglected as the waiting staff congregated around them giving them a wonderful first class service. We tried complaining even asking the Reception staff if we could see the Duty Manager but this was declined and we were told we would more or less have to put up with it.
The 7 nights they weren't there the hotel reverted back to normal and our stay was pleasant but we will not be returning and we would advise anybody wanting to stay there next September- DON'T!!

what a load of stress

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just arrived back from staying at both of the amathus hotels in cyprus, and what a disaster. These hotels are definintly 5 star, and do deserve to the tag of the leading hotels of the world. Our list of problems are in all 24 complaints so would not have enough space to tell in detail of everything we experienced, however I will try. The rooms at the paphos hotel are more like a 2 star rating, dirty grout, bad paint work, chipped enamel on the bath, stained decor, dirty curtains, unusal wildlife running round the floor, broken door casing, dirty outdoor pools, tatty carpets, tatty beach towels, broken furniture, ladies toilet door missing for well over a week, as you can see the list is endless. Also experienced bad service in the restaurants in both hotels, and bad mannered staff. Theres also a big scam going on with what are suppose to be complimentry drinks when entering the restaurants on themed buffet evenings, the staff serving these drinks tell you there complimentry but when you sign your bill they charge you for them about £8 for a glass of champagne, there were lots of complaints about this, and a lot of angry guests, this happened in both hotels. My stay was that terrible that it did not feel I'd been holiday, it felt more like I was an undercover holiday rep, as I was so sick of finding faults with both hotels. We spent a hell of a lot of money on this holiday one of the most expensive we have ever been on, and we've had better times at 3 star hotels. I have complained to the Amathus devision asking for a full refund, but have been fobbed of so far. If your looking for luxury, have high standards, and travel a lot, you will be greatly dissapointed by staying at any of these hotels, as they do not have the high standards they claim to have in the brochures.

A superb vacation

from sezy
After reading all the positive feedback from this hotel and then a few negative, I was a little apprehensive on my arrival, but was not disappointed. We arrived quite late at night and were brought sandwiches to our room with a bottle of wine and a basket of fruit (all complimentary). The staff, rooms, location, food, and the fantastic swimming pool with a nice 'swim-up' bar were all superb. We hired a car and went exploring every day to the great archaeology sites, the Troodos Mountains etc, etc.., which was great but couldn't wait to get back to the sunbeds on the grassy/beach area in the afternoons. Lots to see and do, very good restaurants. Well worth a trip! All the staff were wonderful.
Restaurants Recommended - La Terraza, Grazzia, Amore, The Hotel Pool Side was very romantic, King Solomans & La Vigna (both in Coral Bay area)

Not a 5* hotel

from rits
Stayed here with 2 children in August/September. We had high expectations as a 5* hotel and were very disappointed.

Room - we booked junior suite which is a large room with a sofa bed. The sofa bed was broken and shabby. The room had apparently been renovated but again very poor. The bathroom was minute. Not worth paying the extra but we had 2 children and needed the space.

Pool - pools are fantastic. Ideal for children but felt that they should have allowed balls and small floats.

Beach - awful - in fact you can't swim in the sea as too many rocks.

Children's club - rubbish. Run by a bad tempered english woman who did not encourage children to take part and join. All indoors.

Entertainment - if you like piano playing ok otherwise certainly lacked atmosphere. No evening entertainment for children.

Restaurants - negotiate a half board rate as otherwise pricey. La Terazza was good otherwise poor.

Overall - would recommend to the older clientele rather than a families which is a shame as pools are great. Would recommend their sister hotel in Limassol as that one had the edge.

The best holiday we have ever taken!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived here late afternoon and after being totally impressed with the reception area and the staff and then the rooms - we went straight to the pool and revelled in our fortune!!! The pool is one of the best we have ever floated in. It was spotless - no rowdy games were allowed - no lumps of plastic or airbeds etc were allowed resulting in perfection for swimming and chilling.
The rooms were great...exceptionally clean....spacious....the only problem I suffered was that guests were allowed to smoke in their rooms and for some reason the air con would blow through the remains of whoever was smoking in the room above us...it wasnt strong but it was enough to spoil it a bit.
The breakfasts were sumptious.
The staff could not have been more helpful unless they were asked where we could eat out of the Hotel - then they did'nt want to help! I think they would prefer you to eat in but the prices of the food to eat in every night made it hard and having 5 children with us - the boys obviously resenting wearing dinner jackets every evening made it harder!!
The poolside staff and the beach staff were attentive and delivered your drinks quickly. The iced towels that were handed out at miday in the searing heat - WAS TOPS!!! The water sports area was fantastic.
The hotel itself was the best we have ever had the fortune to stay in.
The children adored it - we adored it and woudl we go back...yes - tomorrow if we could.

Fantastic Hotel To Stay In

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just been for our third stay at the Amathus in Paphos and it was still brilliant. We have a thirteen year old son, we were worried he might be bored! We didnt see him hardly for ten days, he met so many friends. Very upmarket hotel with really nice guests. Not pompous at all but very 5 star. Loved it. We only stayed BB as like going to restaurants at night. Chloes and La Piazza a must. You will need to book but the hotel will do that for you. Fat mamas great for kids as they have entertainment but cannot book and may have to queue. We also loved the little bar just outside the hotel, very cheap and the food was lovely. I would highly recommend The Amathus, bit pricey for drinks but you have to expect that in a five star hotel. Hope you like it as much as we did.

What a great hotel

from oldbamboo2
Just got back from a two week holiday at Amathus Beach which can only be discribed as perfect.

On arrival we were offered a cold drink and an ice cold flannel at reception, which was greatly appreciated. We travelled with Thomson a la carte and as promised in the brochure we were upgraded as there were better rooms available. The room was very large with a good size balcony and view of the swimming pool and sea.

We stayed B and B, the breakfast had almost everything you could want (except for smoked salmon, which we are partial to).

We eventually found ourselves sitting on the grass area overlooking the sea and the small watersport set up, which kept us amused. We were told off a few times for moving our parasols and loungers by the boys who are employed to do this and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The pool bar got a little hectic at times but that's school holidays for you I suppose. The drinks were on the expensive side but only to be expected. We had a few laughs in the piano bar - there is a no shorts policy and the bar manager adhered to this and a couple of times had to tell guests to go and change into long trousers.

There are some bars and restaurants across the road from the hotel, these were all pretty much the same, except for one, Napolian's. Good food and good staff. Stay away from Sunbow, which is opposite Napolian's, although it looks ok - it is NOT, we dined in there once with our five year old daughter, when one of the staff dressed up as a fire fighter and then exposed a plastic you know what from his trousers, there were a lot of children in there at the time and I think we all found this rather vulgar.

The harbour is much of a muchness and pleasant enough, the taxi cost £4 cyprus each way or you could walk it in about 20 mins but it is hot.

So, we had a great time in a hotel that we will go back to, the staff are fantastic and the air conditioning is spot on - The Managers cocktail party was ok as well.

If you are thinking of going to Paphos you can really only go to one hotel and The Amathus Beach is it, you won't be let down.

Great Hotel; shame about the town

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just back from 11 days in CYP. 7 of which were spent here. The hotel itself is fine. The pool area and staff are really fantastic. The hotel was full, but they really went the extra mile to ensure you had a realaxing stay. The reception staff were functional and the concierge was pretty useless; if you want restaurant reviews ask your cab driver. We ate in the hotel once, at La Tereza (a italian buffet) and it was one of the bext meals in Paphos and cheaper than Cavalini (good, but reviews suggest its better than it is). We also tried Oleastra (both of these are 100m from hotel) which was better. Avoid Zaffron, it was poor. If you like Teppanyaki, Yousaha was good fun.

However, if you want any local food (which is infinitely better than anything you'll find in Paphos), you need to head out of town. The 7 Georges in Geruskipou, for example is fantastic. They just keep bringing you Meze, until you stay stop. Also the fish restaurant next to the small church in St Georges Bay (next one past Coral Bay) is also extremely good.

Paphos town is somewhat more touristy than anticipated. One place you can go to get away from the football shirts is the bar in the Almyra hotel, which does great cocktails and sometimes has good live jazz.

I also dived with CY Dive (biggest co in Paphos) and whilst it was interesting (Vera K wreck) there's not much by way of wildlife.

The other 4 days of our holiday was spent in Northern Cyprus in Bellapais
(at the Bellapais Gardens hotel , which is brilliant). Northern Cyprus is everything we had hoped Paphos would be. Unspoilt and very beautiful. Its only a 2 hr drive from Paphos...

Luxury Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We really liked this hotel. Excellent pool, yummy breakfasts and large room. You can also relax in the coffee lounge area if it turns cloudy.

the main dining room was a bit cheesy and slightly stuffy, but apart from that evrywhere else was fab. Good tennis courts and service was polite and helpful but not intrusive.
Paphos itself, bit of a let down, cheap and cheerful bars and restuarants, not v interesting. But I bought some really cheap glasses - worth the trip for the money I saved!!

We'd go again for a decadent week away from it all.

staff made all the difference

from sutone
We stayed at the Amathus in May. Unfortunately our first room looked over the carpark (our agent had said don't worry just put in a request for an upgrade and other members and said they had free upgrades on arrival). This wasn't our luck, it was a Cypriot bank holiday and they were full up! so we paid to upgrade to a side sea view, it was fine for a few nights and then the 'baby' arrived in the next room! After being woken at 5 -6 am! for 2 nights we realised our room had an interconecting door which was why it seemed like we were sharing the early morning feed!
We asked to be moved again. We had approx. 1 or 2 nights and then my husband was admitted into hospital with pneumonia!! The staff were fantastic. They sent flowers to him and were always asking if i was ok. Obviously a very disappointing holiday for us but the hotel amenities were great. Plush sunbeds, on tap waiter service and a wonderful setting. Just outside Paphos town centre, 20 - 30 mins walk, depending on how fast you walk! we prefferred to stay local with several excellent restaurants.
We were b & b but had a couple of meals in the hotel, pricey but worth it. One crib, you weren't allowed to have outside bottles of water in the room, which obviously proved very expensive. As i have to drink at least 2 -3 ltres a day this proved very expensive. But then if you go 5 star you must expect to pay 5 star!

Top Local Tips for Paphos

Greek Magic - Mageirion to Elleniko This restaurant was a real find. Only open since April, typical taverna with typical food, fabulous hospitality. Exceptional food (we ordered a light meze for two and were served a succession of 20 plates - all delicious, with wine, coffee and a platter of freshly peeled and sliced fruit - all for 40€ - there was enough food for ten diners!). Live music on Friday and Saturday - we -went back on Friday night and were greeted like family friends. Typical Greek music and dancing, plate throwing replaced by paper serviettes - much safer! Marius makes sure everything is perfect, Alexandra and Andreas, served us with smiles, chatter and interesting tips. Costas, a friend and permanent fixture adds a delightful ambience that makes you just want to return for more! Botan 8-10, Paphos town Tel: 26955989; The only problem is finding it - luckily on Friday night, we could follow the music!!

Mosaics I highly recommend you make your way to the harbour to see the Roman mosaics. They are in excellent condition and give a real insight into how life would have been like on the island 2000 years ago. It's a great bargain as it only costs £2 to get in. You can spend an entire morning there. Interestingly it is an on going archialogical sight as the mosaics were only discovered in 1962. I suggest you go in the morning or the late afternoon since you are mostly outside and exposed to the hot sun.

Artio Artio was a fantastic restuarant in Paphos, food, service and settings second to none!!!
