Stylish hotels that welcome children can be hard to come by, but the Atlantica Club SunGarden bends the rules a bit. It’s chicly designed, but it’s got no airs or graces, so adults can relax while little ones get stuck into the fun.
On the facilities front, there are two infinity swimming pools, an indoor pool, and a pair of separate swimming pools for children. When you want a change of scene, it’s only a minute’s walk to the beach. The waters here are shallow and clear, so it’s safe for those in water-wings.
At mealtimes, the hotel has two restaurants. There’s a candle-lit à la carte and a buffet restaurant, which has a special section for children’s dishes. Both eateries look out over the Mediterranean Sea, so you can soak up the views as you dine.
As for location, Ayia Napa’s town centre is within walking distance – it takes about 20 minutes – and public transport is easily available.

Excellent time had by all.
Stayed here in April 2013 for 1 week. Early season holiday. The service was fantastic the hotel was spotless. The staff was very hospitable. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I'm sorry I cannot fault it. It was also my 40th birthday and the staff made it very memorable. Exceptional service in the a la carte restaurant and no shortage of champagne from the generous Mr Niccos (manager).More

Amazing family holiday
Visited here at the beginning of the Spring Season, from April 9th- April 16th, and wish we'd gone for 10 days to be honest. Arrived via Thomson's coach travel bus at the hotel at 11pm at night and were warmly welcomed by the hotel's reception who were very helpful. Feeling hungry and tired we were greeted by ready made sandwiches and served immediately with drinks with excellent service. The room we had was clean, spacious with a sea balcony view, which pretty much all the rooms have. The beds are comfy and I'm not going to say too much about the room as it was very basic and had everything you needed. The pools aren't heated but we were soon in them, they are a bit cold at first but by midday - 2pm the pools are heated by the sun and are surprisingly refreshing. You should definitely go all inclusive I recommend as it gives you the opportunity to explore drinks and foods you may have never tried, overall I'd say the food was okay here but got a bit boring after a while however the drinks were great and they had a lot of choice. I think the restraunts food could've been improved, the service though was amazing and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were very impressed that the manager was getting stuck in as well, he was also serving people and not bossing staff about, he was making sure we were all being served and it made the holiday experience better knowing the manager cared a lot for his guests. The 4 pools I went in are very clean and there are bars and drinks and snacks available which is convenient. The weather we had was far better than the UK thank goodness, temperatures hovering 20 - 23 most days, but I can tell you it felt much hotter even though one day it was 19 it felt like 25 to me! There were a couple of days where at 3pm the breeze started to pick up and it did get a bit chilly, especially if you'd come out of the cool outdoor swimming pools. Although one day out the 6 good days weather we had was rainy, it was just unlucky if you ask me. It was only a bit of rain, and the whole day was cloudy, so no suntanning that day! Instead, we all headed to the heated indoor pool which is lovely. (May I also add next door to the indoor pool there are spa and shower facilities and massages are available for adults. The hotels overall cleanliness pleased all if you ask me. The nearby beach (listed blue flag for it's cleanliness) This hotel has so much to offer and I definitely recommend if you book here that you stroll into Aiya Napa as there is plenty to do in the town itself. The only criticism I'd have to give to this particular Atlantica hotel is the entertainment in the evening, it wasn't everyone's cup of tea I soon noticed. Yes there is a games room but if you could update the games room I'm sure more would go. After a while playing ping pong and pool just didn't cut it all night for us kids. I don't have any suggestions for entertainment for us teens and younger one's evening entertainment I can just advise Atlantica to perhaps improve this to resolve any boredom at night. I was a little disappointed the pools weren't open till later as a midnight swim is always at the top of my holiday wishlist. However, me and my family were otherwise very impressed. Keep up the great staff and politeness Atlantica it truly does pay off! Would return here one day maybe, good luck! I advise if you haven't already been here, you should definitely come the service is outstanding and I enjoyed every minute of it here, so relaxing and worth it!More

Exceptionally well run hotel but not without faults
We returned home at 3.30am today and I wanted to review this hotel while it was fresh in mind. We were a party of 6 (4 adults, 2 children) who all desperately needed a great, relaxing weeks holiday. Booked with Thompson 6 weeks ago, price seemed quite competitive, especially given it was an all inclusive deal. I'll get a few moans out of the way early in my review as the majority of our trip was great...! * Upon arrival, as some people have commented, the hotel was a lot older than it looks on the website so we were a little taken surprised with the entrance, reception & bar area. * Our Family Room was on the 2nd floor in the main hotel and with 4 people and suitcases was very cramped however our main problem was the main bed...hard as concrete (no joke). I see I'm not the only person to feel this way. As I suffer with a bad back, I immediately went to complain and Nicos (the Hotel Manager) handled the situation very well and offered to move us the following morning along a few doors to twin beds (which were slightly softer due to the toppers). * So that problem solved, we then found out we were directly above the evening entertainment area which was quite noisy every night till around midnight (not ideal with 2 children who went to bed around 9pm). * On that note, we found the nightly entertainment a little poor. Some nights would have benefited from a simple disco and letting everyone do their own thing rather than 3 nights of sitting down listening to Alex & Natalie (man on keyboard & lady singing songs we didn't really know). So moans over with, here comes the praise... * This hotel runs so smoothly thanks to excellent management who are always visible together with genuine friendly & attentive staff. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone (very rare!) * Location is good too - 20 minute stroll into the main town if you want some shops and the marina. There is also a local fairground for kids at night time. * Beach area is nice to have but we only went once as we had a wheelchair and getting down and back was a struggle * Everywhere very clean with maintenance always around improving/cleaning public areas * Choice of pools was nice - although all unheated so in April only the most hardest/foolish braved the cold for a quick dip * Varied and fresh food choices for breakfast, lunch & evening meal and the A la Carte night was a very nice idea and made a change for couples wanting something a bit different and romantic * Daily housekeeping were efficient. Nice to get fresh towels everyday and the bed changed mid-week too * Child friendly - my girls loved exploring the hotel and grounds and it was a nice safe environment for them to do this. No disapproving looks from anyone! So, the question I always ask myself is..."Would I go back?" and yes I would love to return. I would feel very comfortable returning knowing that the management and staff love and cherish what they do and put their heart & soul into making everyone have a great holiday. BUT...I would need for the mattresses to be very upgraded and next time book a room in the gardens, away from the nightly noise.More
Wow, what a hotel !
We've been back a week now and are still depressed ! After reading the previous reviews we knew the hotel was going to be good but didn't expect it to be this good ! Ok, I'll keep it simple..... Location, amazing, beautiful views wherever you are and only a couple of mins from the beach. The pools, yes they were cold but the kids loved them and we too were in there by the end of the week. No sunbed issues at all, even after 9.30am ! The food...OMG The food !!! Every mealtime was awsome, even our fussy kids had full plates and full tummies. As for the A'La Carte restaurant, every mouthful was a pleasure, we've spent loads in restaurants before for food that came nowhere near the quality of this. We thought the buffet was amazing till we tried this ! Drinks....all i'll say is try the strawberry milkshakes from the pool bars ! The staff, they make the hotel ! they all smiled and were genuine in their helpfullness and worked like crazy. We never waited long for drinks in the restaurant and the plates were cleared before your fork touched the table. The rooms, we had a junior suite..fantastic views, yes the bed was a little hard but it wasn't an issue, the room was cleaned everyday...didn't expect that ! So, if we were millionaires and could afford to go anwhere, would we go back to the Sungarden...you bet we would. Oh, almost forgot...the dougnuts at breakfast... oh how i miss them !!!!!

Excellent service, lovely location
Last minute booking via thomson and glad we picked both this hotel and thomson holidays. Professional service from start to end of holiday. Hotel is in a lovely location, short walk into ayia napa along the beach or road. We had a corner room on the 5 th floor with fantastic views of the sea, very quiet, comfortable room. Staff are excellent and the management team is visible all the time to make sure that everyone is happy. Hotel is very clean with good facilities and kids club. Food good for buffet style offering and the a la carte meal was very good. Entertainment in the evening was good on some evenings, early season so think they were trying out acts for the summer. Overall, a great family resort.More
