Historical Traveller Reviews of Paphos Amathus Beach Hotel
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 stressfrom A TripAdvisor Member
A superb vacationfrom sezy
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* hotelfrom rits
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
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 Infrom A TripAdvisor Member
What a great hotelfrom oldbamboo2
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 townfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 differencefrom sutone
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!!!
