With 3 big pools and 5 restaurants, you’re spoilt for choice at this beachside hotel.
This hotel deals in big numbers. For starters, there are 3 huge pools as well as a couple for children. Then you’ve got 5 restaurants – they’re a mix of buffet and à la carte, and all come with first-rate sea views.
The only thing that separates this supersized hotel from the sea is a shingle beach, where you’ll find loungers and waiter service. A 30-minute walk – 10 by bus – takes you to Paphos harbour.

If this had been our first stay at this hotel we would have been quite happy, but having stayed here three times before we did notice that standards had dropped. Petty things such as no shower cap, no milk left in room on the second day and broken hairdryer. Also we arrived around midnight and wanted room service but no one answered the 'phone and my husband had to go back down to reception to order sandwiches. All of the above things were soon remedied when we informed reception and a supervisor called a few times to ask if our room was ok. The older members of staff around the hotel were as courteous as ever but the service in the large restaurant was sometimes quite poor, with younger staff standing around chatting when we were waiting for them to take our wine order. We asked one of their colleagues who was busy clearing the next table and she looked very frustrated and went to speak to them but we still had to wait as, although she had pointed us out, one of the girls then went to another table to ask for their order and they hadn't been waiting as long as us. There was also one young man cooking at breakfast (I won't say what he was cooking as don't want to get him into trouble), who had a very bad attitude towards guests. The food was good but it did seem the same choices every night apart from the Greek night. On the plus side this is a nice hotel in a lovely setting and we've been lucky and never experienced noisy guests when we've gone to bed. We always pay extra for a sea view as much nicer than looking onto the road and much quieter. We don't go on holiday to watch the TV but it would be nice to have a choice of English channels and not just the news channels. Please management look after your standard room guests as well as the ones who have paid more as the holiday is still not cheap for a standard room and please don't let your standards slip as this really is a lovely hotel.More
Ultra All Inclusive: worth the money?
We went to the hotel in mid May 2017, on a Premium Package Ultra All Inclusive package for one week in a sea view room. The additional cost for all inclusive was around Â£330 (more than the full board price), which included Full Board (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) plus snacks, ice-creams, water, alcoholic drinks and soft drinks, hot and cold beverages. Free Wi-Fi. We had a pleasant week at the hotel and the weather was great, what follows is our view on the positives and negatives from our hotel. The positives: - The package allows you to get breakfast at the Zephyr restaurant which was good. Great poached eggs made to order by Elizabeth. - Dinner at the Leda Italian restaurant was good. - Dinner at the Zephyr was very good. Had steak and fish, all of which was very good. - Room tidy if old fashioned. Cleaned well. - Good location close to beach, there is a public footpath path through the middle of the hotel grounds through the hotel sunbed area, but this wasn't a problem. - Sunbed availability was excellent - Staff friendly and attentive on the whole. - WiFi was reliable Negatives: - You kind of assume that an Ultra All Inclusive package gives you preferential booking to the (great) Zephyr restaurant. This is not the case. On arriving, we found that the first booking was available only on day 4, which was surprising to say the least. We were leaving on a Monday evening, only to find out it was fully booked then as well. - Our experience of the reception staff and the way that they managed our displeasure about Zephyr bookings was not great - very snooty about it, although they did manage to fit us in on the Monday. - Should you choose to eat dinner at the main buffet - as we did, when both the Zephyr and Leda were fully booked, you will find the menu limited, and the place to be very crowded and noisy. One observation, there were alot of weddings when we were there. Most wedding parties were great, but one seemed to regard it as an extended stag / hen weekend. Lots of drinking etc. We were all young once, but at least you know what you may encounter. I'll be honest. In my opinion, the ultra all inclusive package is not worth the extra money, if you can't get a reservation at the Zephyr restaurant. There are also many 'premium' drinks outside your package (albeit you got a 50% price discount on these). We ended up walking down to coast path to Pathos for dinner a number of evenings, which took us 15 to 20 mins (one way). Great variety of restaurants by the harbour (Moulia, the fish restaurant was great) and bars there. Save your money and go there.More

Enjoyable stay - will return
2 standard rooms booked and genuinely nice rooms although a little dated compared to other 4* hotels. When we arrived we had an upgrade to all inclusive which was a nice touch. The hotel is very good throughout and the only reason it didn't get the 5 stars from me, was that we emailed in advance for quiet rooms at a request, but unfortunately we were given rooms both near the bar and looking over the main road at the front of the hotel. (If you are a light sleeper, then avoid the rooms looking over the road). We did ask to move rooms and this did happen mid-week - both rooms were then very good. The thing that really is excellent about this hotel is its food (fantastic choice and beautiful) and it's staff. The staff are all fantastic and very helpful, my mum who travelled with us has to have a gluten free diet which the staff helped point out everyday what she could and counldn't eat. Also, special mention to the manager of the Leda restaurant, we didn't get his name, but his service is excellent and made us feel very welcome. Take advantage and make sure you book a meal in this restaurant, but book in advance as it gets busy. Overall, really happy with the Athena beach hotel and will return again and again.More
Room was quiet and clean, staff very friendly and great facilities. Food was a bit same-y but OK. Receptionists always seemed stressed but got there in the end. Great location with bus stop right outside door. Taxis v reasonable. Had a great week as part of a Dance Holiday.More
