With its sea-view sunloungers and cache of sporting facilities, the Hotel Atlantica Club SunGarden Beach does relaxation and action in equal measure.

Second year of coming here, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is clean, tidy and the food is amazing. The maids come every day to clean the room and change the towels- beds are changed approx twice a week. Only downside are the saddos that reserve the sun beds at 5am. I'm not joking either. But- if you can't beat them, join them (well- I sent my hubby out- lol!).
But- what made the holiday were the amazing Thomson entertainment reps. Dizzy Dom, Krazy Katie, Princess Sarah, and Queen Bea. They were pretty amazing- on the go from 10.30am to 3.30pm and then back again for the evening until midnight. They got you involved- but weren't pushy with it- so pretty perfect in my opinion. The reps deserve a special mention inn opinion- thank you from us all!xx More

This was my 5th time staying at this hotel with my family of 13 and I loved every minute of it, sure it gets better every year!!Food was great and there was something for everyone (even fussy eaters like me!) Rooms were cleaned every day up to top standard and always looked spotless, couldn't ask for anything more from the maids. Had a problem with our air con at one point but was dealt with immediately, which was great service and we were very impressed. It is only a 20-25 minute walk into the centre of Ayia Napa and taxis cost around 2 euros per person, which isn't bad at all- there are plenty of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to enjoy your night at. The Thomson team made our holiday one to remember with lots to do by the activities pool every day and the night time entertainment programme. A massive thank you to Dizzy Dom, Queen B, Princess Sarah and Krazie Katie for keeping us all entertained and laughing the entire time, miss you all x My younger cousins also loved taking part in the kennel club which is on at 8:30pm after little pups which starts at 8pm- they are both full of dances, games and loads more to keep the kids happy. Local acts were in 3 times a week to perform which we enjoyed a lot, especially the magician and ska man. The game shows were great that were put on as well, the superhero one would have to be my favourite which was on our last night- a great way to end the holiday. The hotel is right on the beach and a beautiful beach it is, clear blue waters and a lot is available to do such as jet skiing, a wide range of boat trips and loads more. The staff were all so friendly and we were greeted and waved off by the hotel manager who always had a smile on his face. Overall we had an amazing holiday and will definitely be back for the 6th visit in the future!!More
Needs cleaning and get familiar with all aspects of Cats
We were told by our travel agencyâs web page that the Atlantica Club Sungarden Hotel had very good food with a local touch which should outrank other all-inclusive-hotels. The reviews we read on Trip Advisor said everything from amazing to excellent with a 4.5 score, so we went there with high expectations. To high as it turned out.
Breakfast is good, lunch is OK and dinner is nothing special. We didnât see much of the promised local touch. It was a slight setback given our high expectations in mind. But one can live with that. After all, many meals get served and itâs tough to please everyone. The only exception is the A lÃ carte restaurant which serves great food. The staff do their very best to make you feel welcome and are very quick to clean the table from your finished plates.
Worse were the cats, which you had to accept if you wanted to eat outside. And weâre there for the weather, but we didnât expect the cats strolling around the table. Donât get me wrong, I love cats, but these cats didnât look healthy. And we were later told, by the travel agency representative, that they were brought in to deal with the cockroaches.
We know one shouldnât deal with one problem by adding another. But this was the choice of the hotel. Cockroaches are a natural part of the Cyprus inhabitants, and if you donât want them there â you need to keep the place clean. But they added cats, who also have needs and make their things whenever and wherever they need too. On the lawn and at the palm trees by the activity pool. In the hot summer, this gives a very distinctive and unpleasant smell close to your sunbed. It is recommended to stay away from the palm trees by the pool.
On a general notice, cleaning inside is as OK but outside it is poor. By the activity pool one would expect that aisles, sunbeds and tables are cleaned every morning. Unfortunately this isnât the case. You have to use your own creativity to clean the tables. We used a small towel from the room. Why not let the pool staff clean the pool area including outdoor furniture every morning? It would have made all the difference.
But it wasnât all bad. The Thomson crew (not our travel agency) where awesome by the activity pool at daytime and in the Amphitheatre in the evening. Thomson crew quickly learnt the kidsâ name, and made this holiday worthwhile. Too sad really that they are leaving the Atlantica Sungarden for next season.
The rooms are getting old, as is the equipment in the rooms. Beds are stiff, but the climate control is doing what itâs supposed to. Wi-Fi works in the morning, and you have to be patient at all other hours. But you can get data roaming access via 3G, and it works better than the Wi-Fi.
We will chose another all-inclusive hotel for next summer. This hotel doesnât destroy your holiday, but there are a lot of cleaner ones out there in the Mediterranean.

We travelled with my two girls aged 8 and 10 and picked Cyprus for the guaranteed sunshine which it delivers in spades.
The hotel is fine, the public areas are immaculate, pool is clean. The food was a game of two halves and got better as the holiday progressed, the Cypruit night was the best (I guess if they can't get that right then who can)....
The room was functional, massive balcony, the bathroom was tired and the edge of the bath was showing signs of rust which we mentioned to the hotel reception but nothing was done....not sure what they could have done that didn't involved replacing it. Room was always clean.
Sun beds are a nightmare, I got up at 7am every morning to get the last few as I wanted a spot by the pool so I could see my kids swimming when I wasn't in with them. Not sure what the hotel can do about it, I even heard an argument between guests who thought they had 'reserved' their beds....ridiculous.More

Another Fantastic Holiday
4th Time back this hotel and yet again 1st class , you have to give the whole team nothing but credit , as in previous years they have got it right , the food was lovely and they had so much on offer at breakfast you could have just about anything , the all inclusive package was good as well with sandwiches and pizza and sausage rolls and ice cream available if you did not want to go in the restautrant ,the bars shut at midnight , kids entertainment was great and plenty to do round the activity pool or you can relax round the other pool with a infinity pool for adults only next to it.
The beach is only a 2 min walk down some steps with water sports ,parasending and peadlo boats,it only takes about 25 mins walk into the town ,quicker if you walk via the beach, there are cabs waiting in the drive way of the hotel they charge about 10 euro's and a bus stop 2 mins away,i will certainly be going back againMore
