Amathus Hotel Paphos  


While some hotels go for period charm or stark minimalism, this place has chosen a more middle-of-the-road route of contemporary chic.

Its restaurants are a good example. Each one is stylishly modern but still tuned to its cuisine. Take La Terrazza. This alfresco Italian number is all wooden trellises and rattan chairs under palms – you could easily be on the Amalfi Coast dining here. Then there’s the Asiachi. Specialising in sushi and other Far Eastern delicacies, its sleek black chairs and starlit ceiling give it a modish Japanese swagger. Third up is La Rotisserie, where à la carte dishes are laid out on crisp white linen amid opulent jewelled curtains. Whichever you choose, they’ve all got one thing in common – the food is first class. The hotel makes a point of baking its own bread, cakes and pastries, and using only the freshest herbs, hand-picked from its own garden.

The rooms are elegant, too. Decorated in understated fashion, they mix warm neutrals with light wood furnishings, low-backed salon chairs and pastel prints of local scenes. Balconies or verandas, together with minibars and tea and coffee kits, add the final touches.

The pool area has been treated to the same tasteful design. Complete with a swim-up bar, the lagoon pool loops around spacious terraces freckled with palms and lawns. For a switch of scenery, just walk past the pool to the beach.

Another great thing about this place is its family-friendly vibe. There's plenty to keep the kids happy, from splash pools and playgrounds to in-room video games. And if you opt for a family room or junior suite, there's enough room for a family of four.

As for the location the hotel is a couple of kilometres from Paphos harbour. Just stroll along the promenade and you’re there in around 15 minutes. Paphos centre is a further two kilometres, but cabs and buses are easy to come by.

Beach Front Fun

Given previous Tripadvisor reviews, we had high expectations of this hotel which were easily surpassed. Without wanting to repeat too much of what has already been said about the property: Positives: 1) Modern and upmarket circulation spaces, restaurants and pool areas. 2) True beach front location, with small sandy(ish) beach directly in front of pool. 3) Plenty of space around the large pool, with attentive pool attendants and bar staff. 4) Good quality food throughout. 5) Good sized / well equipped bedrooms, some with excellent sea views: we fell asleep to the sound of waves on the shore most nights. 6) Good location - 15 minute walk along beach to the harbour, with plenty of restaurants / shops directly adjacent hotel. Negatives: Only one minor negative - our bedrooms were slightly dated but, that said, everything was in perfect working order. I understand that the hotel is due to change to an "all inclusive" format at the end of this 2014 season - hopefully this will not change the character of this excellent hotel.More

Wedding Anniversary Holiday

This is a magnificent hotel with every amenity. The management and staff were so helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very comfortable and fully equipped and kept beautifully clean. Outside amenities for swimming and sunbeds were plentiful with activities daily. The food was excellent but drinks were expensive. We had a very relaxing holiday.More

This is not a 5 star hotel

Was very disappointed with this hotel. It is most definitely not a 5 star. Just got back this week - the hotel was dead. Restaurants not open, bars not open. You had to beg for service around the only bar that was open - as if the staff couldn't be bothered. The room was so hot - no air conditioning - and because we were on ground floor - couldn't leave doors open. Beds were appallingly hard. And our teenage daughter had to pay full price as we did, but got some crappy sofa bed with no mattresses - hard as a rock! The blow dryer would never work. The hotel appears to cater for old people - all buffets. No music, no night-life! The only positive comment I can make - the grounds are very pretty and well maintained. I think it is probably a very good thing the entire hotel is closing -it needs a complete overhall including attitude. Won't be returning.More

Marcine W,


We expected 5 star as advertised - but didn't get it. Have heard hotel closing at end of summer season for a refurb to family orientated all inclusive. Under those circumstances we will not return. Plus points - staff very friendly and helpful (except a couple of receptionist who must have been having a bad day), public rooms are great, restaurants look good. Location excellent and gardens and pool area very nice. Room cleanliness excellent but some furniture looking a bit tatty and tired. We booked a Junior Suite - it was the smallest suite we have ever stayed in! Breakfast was good with a lovely lady making delicious fresh omelettes. Disappointed that hotel would not put air conditioning on in rooms in April (1st May is the magic date) even though the weather was very warm, although they did provide a fan. Indoor pool a bit tatty. Spa looked lovely but I though that most of the treatments were over priced compared with other places we have stayed. VERY disappointed that a la carte and buffet dinner were served in the same restaurant - it is difficult to sit and relax over a nice meal with all the hustle and bustle of a buffet going on around and back and forth past your table. Asian restaurant only open one night in the week we were there. Cocktail bar wasn't open every day. Only Luna Rosa restaurant open at night and Byzantine open for breakfast & lunch. Basically everything else was closed (or not open!) Dinner menu was OK but although we were on half board we went out 4 times in that week and had much better food and atmosphere elsewhere. We expected 5* luxury and didn't get it so we feel we have been cheated but we refused to allow these issues to spoil our holiday. However, we were disappointed and we will not return.More

The staff are the plus point of this hotel

Have just returned from a week staying at the Amathus Beach Hotel Paphos. We normally stay at the Elysium which is excellent and truly 5 star but due to the lateness of booking this year the Elysium was already full. We learned a couple of days after arrival that the hotel has now changed ownership and will be reopening next year as a family resort. I would however like to give my observations on our recent stay: It is really the friendly staff who makes this hotel, Eva and Baba in particular were so friendly, helpful and accommodating they are both to be commended. Nothing was too much trouble. But also it has to be said that wherever we were in the hotel we were always acknowledged with a friendly greeting and smile by all of the staff and they were always happy to engage in conversation and help wherever possible. The cleanliness of the rooms was to a good standard and the towels and bedlinen always clean and fresh smelling. The décor of the hotel is very tired now - understandable with the refurbishment but do not let this dampen your enjoyment of your holiday. The hotel is in a good location with a 20 minute stroll along the promenade into Paphos Harbour. The food was OK, but not up to the standard of the Elysium or other 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The free Wifi coverage across the whole hotel is a real plus point - Elysium take note please. On the whole a great break - I really hope the staff are retained under the new regime as they are the best thing about this hotel.More
