The Anthea Apartments have a stellar location. The complex is right in the heart of bustling Ayia Napa, so you’ll find restaurants, pubs and bars pretty much on your doorstep. It’s right next door to the Ayia Napa Monastery, too, so don’t be surprised if you hear the bells chime in the early hours. Plus, it’s just a five-minute walk to the town’s sandy beaches.
As for the complex itself, it’s made up of a mix of studios and one-bedroom apartments. They’re simply furnished, come with basic kitchenettes, and for a few extra euros you can get air conditioning.
When you fancy a swim there are three pools including a rectangular one with a separate kids’ area. Each is wrapped in a wide sun terrace dotted with sunloungers. Come mealtimes, you can pick between the snack bar and dining room.

You get what you pay for
After reading the reviews on this forum, we were going to cancel and look for somewhere else. However, I decided to give them a ring and ask them straight out, is it clean? Is it noisy? Is it infested? I spoke to Andrea on reception who put my mind at rest she explained that some guests do damage, don't want to pay up so put a bad review on here. You would expect that to be said but we went and were pleased that our room was very spacious, extra pillows on request and no added livestock! Cheap and cheerful.More
me x my partner have just returned from the anthea apartments after 2 weeks i was worried after reading the bad feedback from other holiday makers but to my suprise we were really pleased with the place itself!! we were put in a apartment on the bottom floor facing the pool which was very clean but was in the shade so we asked to be moved x the lady on reception was very nice x offered us another 2 rooms x we picked the one upstairs facing the fun fair which was fun to watch (people screaming on the sling shot x booster:) x the sun beamed in during the day so was nice just sat on the balcony!!.yeah there was damage in the rooms but whos fault is that!! down to some not all 18-30s who are mostly from our country who have no respect for nobody!! x how is the manager suppose to change doors with holes in them when the hotel is fully booked x no doubt theyll of been holes x damage in most of the rooms!!! in our room there was a brand new table which looked like it had been replaced with 3 cigerette burns in a row where someone has deliberatly done it x also the headboard!!! i feel more sorry for the owner of the hotel who has to look at the damage of his property!!!.as for the staff they were friendly enough with us!! but you can imagine why they dont seem happy with the months they have had with the young ones!!.we found the hotel was very cheap in price x you had everything you needed x as for the ants thats no fault of the hotel!! you get them everywhere you go with the heat just go over the road x buy some ant spray which we did for 2 euro spray it once around the skirting boards works wonders i didnt have to do it again!!! anyway we loved it x would go again!!!More
I read the reviews on this hotel just before i came away and came with a positive attitude and with the intention to give this place a chance and not to just slate it,as soon as i arrived i had a bad feeling when the rep got off the coach at the previous hotel and said there were no reps here ! The reception is fine the staff seem ok BUT the whole place is like it's out of 1960s USSR or 1970s pontin's it's the most depressing hotel iv'e ever seen.The place needs tearing down and rebuilding,i stayed here for two nights out of seven i decided after being woken by a big cockroach crawling on my face that i should make other arrangements and i bunked with my family who were staying at a nearby hotel. It's ok if you get it very cheap or your here for clubbing,i can imagine this place gets abused in the summer months.Oh the beds are like concrete. Good points Water is always hot. Central location. That's it.More

Anthea has not improved.
it seems that the Anthea has not improved since our trip in 2006 We arrived at Paphos only to be told that just two of us were going to Ayia Napa, we arrived after a 2hr+ taxi ride. The night porter virtually ran in front of us leaving us to carry our suitcases and hand baggage through a series of corridor and tunnels that resembled an underground car park. I fell on entering the room due to an unmarked step as me attention was taken by a mouse disappearing into the wardrobe. The room was a pigsty infested by ants and cockroaches and dried vomit down the bathroom door. Thompsons were very rude and ignorant to us, I told them that we would be taking legal advice on returning home. We transferred ourselves by taxi back to Paphos and found alternative accommodation. Back in the UK we contacted my union solicitor as Thompsons tried all the usual fobbing off when we contacted them. It ended up costing Thompsons £3500 plus the cost of the taxi from Napa to Paphos and the alternative accommodation. If anyone is not happy with a holiday and the company try and fob you off to the point where you want to take action 'Which magazine' advise you to go through 'Small Claims Court' as ABTA find more often in favour of the holiday company whereas it is the reverse with the 'Small Claims Court'.More
Great Location, shame about the rest...........
Just returned from a week at the Anthea Apts and thought I would share my experiences with you. Great location, right in the town centre, but believe me this was it best feature by far. All the staff have clearly been in hospital to have triple charm bypasses. I have never met such an unfriendly bunch of Apt/hotel staff. The rooms were basic and in need of a make over, but kept clean during our stay. The bedding and towels were changed twice and if you ask the maid nicely she would change them for you in between change days. The pool area is spacious and kept clean...however from 10am to 6pm music blasted out of the speakers above the bar. After a number of requests to turn the music down (on our first day) which was ignored, we decided to spend our day on the beach. If you have a tight budget, then these Apts will be okay for you.More
