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.

Location was good - but some early season misses
We traveled to Cyprus during the first week of April for some early season sun. First the good parts...Hotel is nicely situated outside of the "night life" center of Ayia Napa. The location is family friendly with the sandy beach just a two minutes along a good walking path. (public beach, chairs for rent, good little bar). Beautiful views from the Bungalows out to the ocean. Restaurant and cleaning staff very friendly especially to our two children (3 and 1). On the lot is also a small market that had most of what we needed and was very friendly (and a 5% discount for Sungarden guests). Grounds were beautiful - staff worked very hard to keep them clean. We were disappointed with the fact that the hotel was not really ready to be open to accommodate guests yet, and we were several times informed that something wasn't possible because "it wasn't really even the season yet". Either a hotel is open for business as usual or it's not. If not, that might be fine - but you should alert guests up front when booking that the hotel will be at reduced capacity. There was construction in the lobby and other parts of the grounds every day. There were no creche, babysitting, or child activities available, other than those that were parent-led and even those felt dusty and not ready to be open. Food in the restaurant was adequate, if usually a bit cold, and certainly not inspired, again I'm sure due to the fact that they were cooking for only a few guests. Most who happen to spend the entire winter renting the apartment/bungalows. Given the advertisements of the hotel to be so child/family friendly and all-inclusive - we were disappointed with fact that none of this 'early season' standards were mentioned up front. The room we rented (bungalow with divider for children, nice patio, kitchenette) was fine. It is an older hotel which works out fine if you have toddlers who you don't want ruining nice things. If you are looking for a 4-star quality though, you may be disappointed with the state of the rooms. The double bed was barely even a mattress, really hard (and we are not fussy sleepers). I nearly slept in a child's bed one night just to give my back a break. Pools are not heated so if you go any time before the weather is hot, it may likely be too cold to swim in. And if the hotel is packed with groups I can imagine it being hard to get a good chair, although they pack as many on the grounds as they can. None of the pool bars were open as the pools were too cold. If the hotel had told us up front that they were at reduced capacity, or had given us a bigger discounted rate, some of this would have been understandable. But 160Eur per night (for B&B) is not a discounted rate. We would stay in the vicinity again, as in the height of the season you really do want to be away from the night-life in Ayia Napa. This hotel seems to cater to groups who are just happy to have a place big enough to accommodate. I'm not sure if there are hotels with better standards in Ayia Napa, as the entire area seemed to be a bit well-worn. The people of Cyprus we met were amazing and we'd love to travel here again, but perhaps another part of the island or at least a hotel with better standards.More

Brilliant! Last minute booking....
We went in June 2013 as a family when we first arrived we was a little unsure...BUT when we got to our room in the Gardens it was great! Ground floor looking at the pool, short walk to the beach & pool bar! Food was amazing something for everyone!!! Service was great an having Ayia Napa so close by which was perfect for all ages and the lovely scenic nissi beach there was not much more we could ask for!! The hotel manager was really friendly and any small issue we had nothing major was resolved almost instantly...does anyone remember the managers name? He did give us his email if we ever wanted to return but I've misplaced it!! So if anyone can help please let me know Highly recommended for a great holiday in the lovely Cyprus sunMore

Our Wedding at Atlantica Sungarden Beach Hotel
In October 2013 we got married at the Atlantica Sungarden Beach hotel with 65 of our friends and relatives ageing from 3 months to 70 years old. The whole holiday was excellent and enjoyed by everyone. The wedding was faultless and the staff were exceptional. Location - The hotel itself is on the outskirts of Aiya Napa so it is no too noisy but near enough to walk into town. The view is fantastic from the balcony's and the bar with the best sunsets you will ever see. Food - I am not a fan of all inclusive buffet style hotels but the food is top quality with so much selection for lunch and dinner - i was not bored once. The al a carte meal (which was included once in our deal) could not have been better, we could have easily been in a posh restaurant in London. Staff - i can honestly say i have not been anywhere in the world where the staff have been more friendly/helpful Wedding - The weather was beautiful, the marquee was done up perfectly to fit us all in. The hotel manager Nicos walked me to the marquee for the ceremony where there was champagne and a cake ready to cut and the restaurant manager Yanis controlled the music and made sure all the guests where well catered for. For the reception they made a captains table to cater for all of us, decorated beautifully with flowers from the grounds and again the food was exceptional. The staff and Manager made our whole wedding absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel and everything about it :)More

Fantastic - What all Hard Earned Holidays should be like
We stay at the hotel from 1st June 2013 for 10 Nights. I must admit I was a little worried about staying in Ayia Napa with 2 kids under 11. (Would it be noisy lager lout ish!!!) Far from it! The Hotel is situated in a nice quiet part of Ayia Napa, but it only takes 10 - 15 minutes to walk into the Middle of the town. So back to the hotel: Food - Fantastic! Cleanliness - Fantastic! Pools - Fantastic! Evening Entertainment - Fantastic! Customer Service - Fantastic! Overall - Fantastic! We have booked to return this June. Can't wait Thanks Andy The Fantastic !!! LOLMore

a mixed bag
we went to the atlantica sungarden for a friends wedding. The hotel is fine, nice location just on a cliff top over looking the sea and a small beach. The rooms were OK, we had a suite with a little kitchenette and veranda. clean and tidy. though our air con didnt seem particulrlay fierce whcih was a little uncomfortable at times. but not a deal breaker - plus we were in a hot cuntry so i guess you expect to get hot! The wedding was also great, staff were very attentive and the location was beautiful. The pool area was very nice with a swim up bar and plenty of loungers, though we were just out of peak season. Entertainment was ok, sometimes a bit too much but they were there to do a job - just not my cup of tea but, we were there for the wedding rather than the hotel entertainment. The food was just OK. Good selection of food and for an all inclusive it wasnt too repetitive. Management were very visible and very friendly which was a nice touch, always there to greet you, shake hands, check everything was OK. Aiya Napa itself....does what it says on the tin i guess. Not somewhere i would return but not becuase of the hotel just not my kind of holiday. We hired a buggy and went out of town. The town down the road, Protaras, was very nice and perhaps a quieter less '18-30s' version of Aiya Napa. All in all though a nice, good value, all inclusive resort that ticks boxes if you;re looking for a family friendly hotel in Aiya Napa.More
