Amathus Hotel Paphos  

This hotel is all about the finer things in life, with a deluxe pool and top-drawer restaurants among the spoils.

Every inch of this hotel whispers style, from the lagoon pool and its swim-up bar, to the high-calibre restaurants whose interiors are every bit as impressive as the food.

In terms of location, there’s a beach just beyond the hotel’s borders, while a 15-minute walk brings you to the cafés and restaurants of Paphos’ harbour.

Pleasant but.....

Our family of two adults and two teenagers are “repeaters” at Amathus Beach Hotel. We were dismayed to hear it’s turning All Inclusive after it undergoes a massive refurbishment/renovation programme imminently. On that basis, I can only review it as we found it this year on Half Board and state that we once again had a pleasant stay overall but there were certain notable differences to our excellent stay previously. Plus Points: • Drinks on arrival and efficient check-in with the ever friendly receptionist, Eva. • 2 adjoining rooms with sea/pool views (as requested pre-arrival) were immediately available • Spotless room and bathroom and nice touches of the wine and fruit baskets again. • Restaurant bookings (essential) were no issue on any night – in fact were quite empty most nights. • Friendly pool bar staff, especially Michaela who was excellent at remembering: us (and other guests) from our previous visits, our favourite drinks and room number. • At the children’s request, staff organised a spontaneous cake for hubby’s birthday – a lovely touch! • Plenty of clean towels available and provided promptly every day with no problems. • Gift on departure for both rooms. • Excellent Spa therapists and a great range of treatments at reasonable prices. Downsides: • Pool floor dirty by late afternoon (sand, tissue bits on the floor) and cloudy water. I assume this is from the amount of sun cream being washed off in the pool so it’s not completely the hotel’s fault but pool pump could’ve been more efficient perhaps. • Problems with toddler/young swimmers pool - Pump was broken and area cordoned off for 3 days) • Beach side loungers seem to have been opened up “to all” unlike in other years and many locals/other hotel users were on them all day which led to some irate exchanges between hotel guests and others and resulted in the 7am mad dash for loungers by hotel guests. Amusing to watch at times, but perhaps not so much so when it’s your well-earned break being spoilt by people not even booked into your hotel. Security definitely needs to be more robust in this area. • Food although fresh, hot/cold when appropriate and plentiful, did become a bit samey after a few days. The not very imaginative way with food could be addressed as for example “pea soup” at lunch became “Cream of Pea soup” at dinner. Needs to be addressed by the hotel ASAP (and especially when it goes AI): • The large groups of unsupervised shouting/screaming children running amok amongst the diners in La Terraza restaurant and adults in the Fontana bar area while the inconsiderate parents ignore their broods ensuring that they enjoy their break come what may and to Hell with everyone else’s comfort. Having stayed at the Olympic Lagoon even before it went All Inclusive, we had already witnessed problems with drunken guests at the OL hotel and having seen such a significant change (deterioration?) in clientele this time at Amathus, I can only conclude that the All Inclusive future for ex-Amathus Beach Hotel has more of this type of behaviour to come. Sadly it means we won’t be returning to this hotel. We have fond memories of the Amathus and we’d rather leave it on a high note. Perhaps one last point to consider as conscientious travellers – on our way home, a local taxi driver lamented on the lovely Amathus going AI like most of the other hotels in the area. Consequently, local shop-keepers and tourist areas of interest were seeing vastly reduced visits and fares as guests were just staying in the hotel with all eating and drinking provided in-house. He told us that local businesses were suffering from a lack of footfall tourist trade and that the hotels were running their own buses to and from designated places of interest after doing cut-throat deals that some small businesses couldn’t compete with due to the large hotel chains budgets. If you enjoy AI venues, by all means, fill your boots but spare a thought for the locals who rely on the tourist trade and get out of the hotel bubble and go and visit some of the beautiful places around the local area. The photos will look so much more impressive on your social media accounts. Thanks to all the staff that helped us enjoy our family holidays in Paphos at the Amathus Beach Hotel.More

A fine stay, but disapointed.

We stayed here for two nights whilst on our honeymoon. Never having stayed at one of the five star beach hotels before, we were very excited about this. Unfortunately we were a little disapointed. I would say the experience was 4 star, rather than 5. We had a suite with a private pool, and whilst the room and private pool area were lovely, they were a little tired and tatty. I understand the hotel will soon be refurbished but I still feel the rooms weren't worth the high price. The service we recieved from the staff was fine, but again, as a 5 star hotel I would expect it to be much friendlier and more helpful. The staff we encountered were polite but not very friendly, and there was none of that making you feel very welcome/nothing is too much trouble type of attitude that we have recieved in lower star hotels. A waitress at the Italian restauraunt was actually quite rude and brisk with us as we had not booked (we didn't know we had to) and huffily declared that she would seat us, but it would be "complicated". Needless to say, the restauraunt was far from busy, it was a buffet style self service (other than drinks), and the atmosphere was quiet and looked in no way complicated. We did have a pleasant stay and enjoyed the hotel, especially the experience in NuBar which was much nicer and with lovely cocktails. However, we were glad we were only there for 2 nights, whereas at a luxury hotel I would have expected to be sad to have to leave. I realise this hotel is soon to be closed and refurbished and become an Olympic Lagoon hotel, however this does not change that my husband and I paid the AMATHUS for a 5-star honeymoon experience, and sadly did not recieve it. The hotel becoming better sometime after our visit does not help us feel that we should have chosen the Elysium instead, which was illustrated when we visited the Elysium for afternoon tea - very recommended.More

Lovely hotel

We stayed here for a week recently. What a beautiful hotel. The staff were delightful and really helpful. We stayed on a half board basis. The buffet was quite good, better than most. However, we do like to eat out in the evening and you could not swap your dinner for lunch, which was a shame. We went to the a la carte restaurant one night and I have to say that I was a little disappointed, the service was very slow, the food was good but not excellent and it was over priced in my opinion. The pool was fantastic, not too cold!! The sun beds were excellent, really comfy for lounging around. There are a couple of bars around the pool, one of which is a swim up bar. Both lovely, and the food they served was excellent too. Overall, a stunning hotel and I would visit again.More

Great Resort in Paphos

We stayed in Amathus Beach Hotel Resort Paphos during August 2013. We stayed in a family room which was spacious enough for two adults and two children. The resort was lovely. My children enjoyed the Kids Club and my wife enjoyed the Spa. Lovely place that is highly recommended for families.More

Roger D,

Our last day treat

We had to be out of our Villa by 10 am and no flight till 22.20 that evening - so we decided to buy day passes and spend the day at the Amathus. As I had booked a treatment I got my day pass free and it was 20 euros for my partner. the lady at the Spa Zuzanna was so helpful. we started the day with coffee which was lush - then we found sunbeds - the hotel was busy but we had no problem finding two beds by the pool - and you are not on top of other guests. We listened to other guests' comments on the hotel closing and re-opening as an all inclusive and many seemed against this idea .... the pool area nice and clean and the attendants and waiting staff are there to help you. we had a light lunch at the pool bar - very nice and reasonable. I went off for my treatment in the relaxing spa. then we both had showers and got changed in the facilities and then had a cool drink in the air conditioned lobby whilst we waited to go to the airport. The hotel also looked after our baggage for us. we can't comment on the hotel rooms as we were only there for a day - but the all the parts of the hotel that we saw were kept very well and I am sure the refurb will be wonderful for the hotel as it is in such a lovely setting. thank you for looking after us on our last dayMore
