The Atlantica Golden Beach draws guests back year after year, thanks to its exclusive postcode and great dining scene.
This hotel is hidden among banana trees in a peaceful area of Paphos. It’s shouldered by a pebbly beach, so sea views come as standard throughout the grounds.
Interiors are really elegant. The lobby, for instance, is marble-floored, and comes with chunky pillars and stylish wing chairs.

This hotel is amazing. The staff are all very friendly and helpful especially Nicolleta who Is the "yamas" lady from the bar always smiling always happy lovely lady. The rooms in the hotel are clean and have plenty of space. Our room was 106 we overlooked the pool and had a sea view very nice to wake up to every morning. The food was amazing plenty of choice and delicious. you have the choice to eat inside or out. The dining areas are clean and there is plenty of space between tables. Try and do the al a carte night that was special. The pool area is clean with flowers around they even grow their own herbs which we saw a couple of the chefs come and pick some for dinner. there are garden areas to sit in with ample sun beds and shade should you need it. The staff are on hand for any drinks you need so you don't need to get up (heaven) There is a garden area down by the beach which again has everything you will need including staff. The internet is free although not always available had to log in several times in a day. Really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely be back. Thank you to everyone for making my holiday so specialMore
Very Good But...
I stayed here with my wife for one week. We booked a sea view room, we checked in very late after arriving at our resort after midnight. Even though the all - inclusive had finished for the day we were given a plate of salad and meat before we went to our room which was a nice touch. We were taken to our room which was in a block facing the beach which was still undergoing construction. We were very concerned to see the area was still a building site with electrical wires over the corridor and stairwells blocked off leading to a downstairs area which was still under construction. The whole block was still under construction and it did not feel safe and we were not sure how the hotel deemed it acceptable to allow guests to have these rooms while still being essentially still under construction and it looked quite scruffy with construction equipment everywhere. Alas, at 7am on the dot we were woken up by the sound of angle grinders, sawing and hammering all around us and we (along with some other guests) made the request to move. Reception dealt with this very well and we were moved to a room in the next block facing the pool, which disappointingly was not a sea view like we asked for. None the less however the room itself was very good indeed with a comfortable bed and a good bathroom. The food at the buffet was for the most part excellent with different themes every night. There was a very good range every night served by an excellent waiting team. We also ate at the a la carte one night and again the food and service was excellent. The bar on the terrace was excellent to relax and watch the sun go down in the evening. This resort is adults only however most of the guests from what we could see were of retirement age (said respectfully of course) so the resort was reasonably quiet. The pool area however could get quite busy and you had to be at the pool as soon as it opened to reserve a lounger. However the pool itself was never too busy. The resort itself was well placed about 20 minutes drive from Paphos as well as being a short drive from Coral Bay. The waiting service by the pool and surrounding areas was excellent and the staff were all to happy to take drink orders. It is a shame that you aren't allowed to take drinks from the bar back to your room so you could sit on the balcony. The reception staff were excellent and helped us with recommendations for a day in Paphos / busses etc. Overall I would recommend this resort however be wary that there is still construction work going on which doesn't look as though it will conclude any time soon. Request a room well away from these areas.More

Good Holiday with friends
We stayed at this hotel for two weeks at the end of April and beginning of May . We met up with some good friends who we have been on holiday with before . It took us nearly an hour to get to the hotel ,with 6 drop offs along the way , after the utter chaos at the airport . This was due to the Thomson staff being unable to send us to the correct coaches in the first place ! During the entire period that we were at the hotel there was building work going on finishing off the new rooms above the beach bar and sometimes this continued into the evenings . This meant we could hear noise from drills etc from our sunbeds on the grass near the pool and at times from our room . In addition the beach bar wasnt open at all whilst we were there despite assurances from hotel Management and Thomsons beforehand that this would not be the case . We also noticed that some couples had been allocated rooms in the new block whilst the work was still going on , as confirmed by previous reviews . I think some complained , quite rightly, and were allocated new rooms but they shouldnt have been put there in the first place in my opinion . ROOMS We had booked a Superior seaview room and were allocated one on the 3rd floor. It was a lovely room with a great view both of the sea and the pool area. I think it must have been modernised fairly recently with new furniture and a very comfortable bed. We also had a jacuzzi bath ,dressing gown, slippers, a cd system plus the usual tv etc. In fact both the fridge and safe now are free whereas before I think you had to pay for them. POOL There is both an indoor and outdoor pool . The outdoor one was very cold at this time of year so not many people used it . Some guests were down on their sunbeds at about 7am but there was no need as there were plenty to go round ,even if you did have to use the grass area which we prefered . In fact there is a rule that you couldnt save beds and go before 8am but I dont know if this was observed by the hotel staff. FOOD The food for breakfast was the usual fried bacon etc and you could get pancakes freshly cooked . In addition there was different cereals, juices , croissants ,chilled cava, fruit etc so plenty of choice. For lunch we usually sat outside the main restaurant . You could also have dinner there if you wanted. You have to wait to be seated for dinner by George, the maitre'd , as it does get very busy . However the waiters & waitresses were usually very quick to bring you drinks once you were seated. We did have to wait sometimes for plates etc to be cleared away if they were busy . There was a good choice of food and several theme nights .We always found something tasty to eat as evidenced by our weight gains ! In particular I loved the delicious cakes and puddings . We tried both the red and white house wines, you can order a half or full bottle if you want, and they were fine. You are allowed to use the a la carte once per stay . This restaurant has a big menu to choose from but you have to book early as it is very popular. We thought the food was delicious . However the service was so slow that in the end we left without having a pudding. BARS The staff at the pool bar are constantly going round taking your order and so you didnt go thirsty . Our pool bar waiter Vasile is a real character and is always on the go , a real asset to the hotel ! I felt that the local beer was ok as were the gin and tonics. In the evenings you could get drinks downstairs where they hold the entertainment and again it wasnt a long wait to be served when Alex was on duty , another real character ! Upstairs the lovely Nicoletta was the main waitress and she is very efficient and happy as everyone says. However at times she was rushed off her feet and could do with a little help as you did have to wait a while there to be served , which was not her fault ! ENTERTAINMENT In the daytime you were looked after by the Thomson Gold team who only arrived the same day as us. There were 4 of them and they worked really hard , fitting in very quickly running the games- boules, jenga , aqua gym , quiz etc . There are 4 of them Jess, Emily, Nat & Matt . A special mention to Matt here , a really friendly guy, who goes out of his way to chat to as many guests as possible and get people on the dancefloor in the evenings ! I think he has a big future ahead if him . The shows they put were fantastic, the most talented Thomson Entertainment team I have met . Their Cocktail Party on Tuesday lunchtime is great fun , ably assisted by the bar staff and Jay ,the local interest expert who should be part of the Entertainment Team as he is FAB in that role ! In the evenings you started off with a quiz, ' Secret Sounds ' and the resident duos who were very good. Initially it was Jinx who left at the end of April and we thought they were excellent . They were very popular as I believe they had been resident at the AGB for several years. They were replaced by Dolly and the Gambler who we also enjoyed. They both had a wide repertoire and often got people up dancing . The outside acts were also very good, including a 'ratpack ' singer , a multi instramentalist , Madonna tribute and a comedian. However our favourite was a soul singer who was fantastic and got us all up for a dance ! GENERAL We didnt do many trips , but we did go into Paphos on the bus as we have been to Cyprus twice before to the Atlantica Bay . We also went to Coral Beach on the bus but the driver seemed intent on dropping us off where the bars and restaurants are which is quite a walk from the lovely beach . The weather was great -mid to high 70's every day, no rain whatsoever . Most of the staff here couldnt do enough for you from reception, waiters , barmen , chefs down to the cleaners . However we did feel that sometimes there were not enough staff on duty in the restaurant , though new trainees were starting as the season progressed so this will probably improve ! We met some of the top staff at the Managers Cocktail evening which was very relaxed and informal.The wifi was pretty good round the pool and near reception but kept dropping out in our room . We will certainly return again but probably not next year as the same 2 weeks in early May is another Â£400 for the type of room we had , which I feel is too big an increase ! In addition work clearing the large site next to the hotel has commenced which I believe is going to be some new villas ,though no one could confirm this . Whether the noise from this development will have much impact on the hotel in the coming months is anyones guess !More
Atlantica Golden Beach Hotel maintains its high standards.
Fifth visit to this wonderful adults only hotel. Ideal if you are looking for a relaxing holiday. The addition of a new terrace has made a big difference to the Reception and Dionysis Bar areas, affording wonderful views throughout the day, but particularly at sunset. The entire hotel is one of great efficiency from the Management to the employees. Nothing is too much trouble for them and anything you need or ask for is delivered without delay. WIFI is free - just ask at Reception and they will sort you out. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the gardens are glorious. If you can tear yourself away for a day trip or a short bus ride to Pafos, there are plenty of options available and if you are considering car hire be sure to take your driving licence (and visit DVLA website for instructions regarding a CODE you might need). If you are planning to have a nice dip in the sea, then be sure to take some footwear that you can wear in the water as there is shingle and stones to contend with, but fabulous when you are actually in! Hope this review will be of use.More
