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.

Best Thomson Hotel
From the welcome of a glass of wine and meal laid on (we did not arrive until 10pm) to the farewell - the management even took the time to say farewell on the coach the whole team could not have done more for its guests. food was first class including the a la carte restaurant (free on one night of the visit) and the Cypric evening also part of the package. Thomson Team also first class including the entertainment team who put in 100% - I do not normally take advantage of the evening entertainment but really enjoyed the shows they put on. No local walks but take the local bus into Paphos its well worth itMore
The Gold was a litle tarnished
We have just returned from the AGB, not our first visit. It is , how other reviews state, a wonderful hotel with some of the most friendly and helpful staff we have come across. We found that despite beautiful clean beds, sanitary wear etc, the general cleanliness of our room was a little below par than when we stayed before. We also noticed that around the pool area is washed down with a hosepipe only ,not with sanatized water, consequently apart from the smell of cat waste at times, we also could smell unclean drains from time to time. Again if you didn't join in the activities and become a 'known ' face the Tui team ignored you. Staff within the complex also had favourites, which were very obvious in many ways. Little moans we know but it just tarnishes the Gold a little. Still a super holiday. Thank you AGB, please don't allow your wonderful standards to slip.More
Not quite Gold standard - Need to start looking after new customers - sort out staff issues.
We travel three times a year - we've experience all sort of hotels high class , basic in numerous counties so we have a good fair idea of what hotels should be offering so this review is honest and fair and correct. Currently staying at the hotel - Positives Food is lovely and plenty of choice. Hotel is clean and modern and been refurbished to a high standard. Lovely furniture to sit and enjoy a drink in evening. Negatives The beach is no beach - all the beds are on grass by the beach and full of gravel. They need to refurbish this so doesn't look like a building site. We are not big fans of the beach anyway but the sea is lovely but you wouldn't pay me to sunbath on long grass surrounded by gravel. If your expecting a nice beach go elsewhere. Also if you want a drink from the beach you have to walk to bar about 5 min walk up a slight hill. Sunbeds- around the pool you have about 30 sunbeds right by the pool - these sunbeds are normally gone by 6 -7:00 as the ' regulars' go down to sunbeds and reserve them. You have to stay on them until 8:00 otherwise the towels will get removed but from 8:00 you can leave them. Sorry I'm not getting up at 6:00 in the morning to sit on a sunbed for 2 hours what sort of holiday is this? Also these sunbeds are right by the pool and you have sun on them and people are sat on them and stay in the shade all day. Why not sit somewhere else in the shade ? Maybe it's just me but beds in the sun are limited and seems selfish. They have loads of sunbeds on the grass by pool but these are all on a slope so your sliding off the beds. Also the grass is quite long - I don't like sunbathing on grass due to insects etc... what the hotel should be doing is making all the grass area level and Tarmac it all so easier to sunbathe. The grass area is very poor for this standard of hotel. I also had an issue with a room upgrade - I paid Thomson for superior room . When got here they hadn't upgraded it - Thomson reps was useless so don't blame the hotel for this. Thomson rep said would get back to me but they still haven't so will sort when I go home as paid extra for this. Room comment - nice and clean the bathroom is tiny - stayed in bigger and better rooms at hotels without a gold standard rating . So lets get to my biggest letdown on this holiday - drinks !!! At the pool and evening the hotel offer waiter table service - ok lovely lets order a drink - waiting 20 minutes - ok no problem - then another 20 minutes to order another drink so in space of 40 minutes we have had one drink? I walk up to pool bar to order a drink actually water the lady on the pool bar I've never seen anyone look so miserable. It's like I'm committing a crime by ordering a drink at the bar even though I'm all inclusive . It's wrong - the waiter service is optional so if I want a drink such as water as sat in 30 degree heat then I'm entitled to walk and get one and not be so rudely served. They need to have one person doing waiter drinks and another serving people at the bar. The queue gets quite large at the bar certain times as like myself people are waiting too long for a drink. If the hotel want to have waiter service have more waiters and be more efficient. Tonight we watched a show the waiter got us a drink we didn't see him for another 30 minutes as he had so many tables - I don't blame him so I go to bar upstairs to get a drink and the service is so rude again - they said can you bring your glasses with you next time . I was like that's not my job and I would like a drink and haven't had one for over 30 minutes as they waiter has too many tables and as all inclusive I'm entitled to get a drink . It truly shocking and terrible rules and service. I've never known a hotel where you get such terrible service for going up to a bar for a drink such as water when you need to hydrate. Hotel management - people are allowed to order drinks at the bar! We have paid for this ! Also another slight issue is having lunch - you're sat outside - even though you have slight roof cover you're still boiling from the heat. I can't enjoy food while I'm hot - I've never known a hotel where you cant eat lunch inside a room where it could be nice and cool with air conditioning. This might just be me but seen a few people saying they want to sit in shade so are cool as possible but it's still warm and not enjoyable. So don't take this the wrong way but this hotel has plenty of regulars who come to this hotel year after year and are the older crowd 50+ - this is great and nice to see them enjoy themselves but the staff do treat them more favourably which is not an issue but don't neglect potential new future customers. They seem to have more waiter services and on first name terms and some of the guest seem to walk around like they own the place - quite funny to watch. I would say to the hotel management these regular customer who are the older crowd won't be around forever and won't always be able to come aboard so they need to focus on looking after new guest so they want to return year after year which isn't happening for us. Still got a few days so anything changes will let you know. The hotel is lovely and such a shame these small but solvable issues such sunbeds and drinks issues could be fixed easily and are unnecessary . We are not the only couple to point these issues out so the hotel need to resolve them. If your thinking of booking this hotel only come if the price is right. Wouldn't pay over the odds. Sorry for any spelling mistakes as on phone and just a quick review. Thanks :) More
What can I say apart from to reiterate what has been said before. We love this hotel it's like going home, we stayed in September last year and will be returning at the end of July for what will be our 7th time. The staff can't do enough for you and make sure you have an enjoyable time. Never had reason to fault anything👍😎 food, staff and entertainment all great. Looking forward to seeing the alterations that have been done since last time. Can't wait to return, would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. We will certainly return every year ⛱🌞More
last minute booking
Have never writen a review on tripadvisor before - as never felt it necessary. This hotel exceeded all our expectations. The staff went over and beyond in providing excellent customer service. Nothing was too much trouble. Room and hotel was very clean and tidy. Food was excellent with a great range of choice. We fully recommend the all inclusive, as an option. We mainly sat on the private part of the beach, where the staff came around on a regular basis to supply us with cool drinks. We will have no problems returning for another relaxing holiday.More
