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.

September holiday with friends
We recently stayed with friends, first time at hotel. Hotel rooms very good, hotel spotlessly clean, dining experience good, food very varied and would suit all tastes. Staff very friendly, special thanks to Nicoletta and Matt and Nathaniel. We thought the duo Dolly and the Gambler were poor, have seen much better at other Gold hotels. The northern mafia are up at dawn to reserve sun beds around the pool area, be warned. There were other European guests at Hotel and I wonder what they thought of these sad people. There are sun beds on grass areas, so plenty to go around. Paphos by bus outside Hotel every 15 mins only 3 Euro return, bus no.615. Only drawback, hotel is very isolated.More
Another good visit,but.....
We are regular visitors to this hotel and this holiday was again a very good 14 night stay on the all inclusive option . We arrived at 0145hrs - thanks to TUI(UK) putting our flight times back by three hours -but were still met by friendly reception staff,porterage,and a buffet awaiting us in the restaurant. A good start and we were given a room on an upper floor overlooking the pool which gave great views of the area and the spectacular sunsets every night. Throughout our stay the staff in all departments were friendly,easy to get along with and worked very hard to keep the guests happy. Again the management were highly visible and mixed with guests regularly. As has been regularly noted in reviews the hotel is a little way out of Paphos but there is a regular bus service...likewise there is no real beach to speak of and you will need shoes to get into the water due to the shingle etc. You can visit a few local places on foot - Kissonerga village or a walk along the coast line- and the local interest rep from TUI - Jay - is very informative and will keep you right. The hotel does offer wifi but we found that it was very hit and miss and regularly dropping out meaning you were constantly having to log back in....although since the new roaming regs came into force this may not now be such an issue as you do not have to pay extra for using mobiles abroad. Since our last visit there have been a number of alterations to the hotel. There is now a very spacious terrace area just off the reception and cocktail bar which gives views over the pool There was nothing better in the evening time sitting with a drink watching the palm trees swaying in the breeze and listening to the sea. This has greatly enhanced the facilities. They have also built 18 new rooms. The ones on the 4th floor give excellent sea views and are the very spacious superior rooms. A number of other rooms have been built over the taverna. Again a number have full sea views....but be aware that they are over a taverna which is open from 1000-1800hrs daily so you will get the sounds of the hustle and bustle below you as well as the cooking smells emanating from the kitchens. There are also some new swimup rooms. Now the suites themselves are very spacious but again be aware that they are inland facing and that they loose the sun after midday so the pool becomes shaded. As regards the food we found most to our liking but after 14 days perhaps a bit too repetitive. Breakfasts cannot be complained about,lunches in the taverna relatively basic and the main evening meals generally good although some of the dishes perhaps with a little too much sauces to our liking. The weekly meze night at the taverna is a good change and the a la carte restaurant meal is simply a must do.....exceptional food and ambience throughout. One minor complaint here is that we regularly had to wait 10 minutes to be seated for the evening meal and be part of a queue of up to 15 others...hasn't happened like this before so maybe some staffing issues to be addressed?? The drinks supplied in general are of a good standard but you will only get the local produced alcohol on the ai basis- if you want the premium brands you will have to pay for them. Managers cocktail party on the Friday evening is a good chance to meet all of the team as well as sample a number of cocktails - which are free to all guests - ....similarly on the Friday lunchtime there is the barbecue cooked by management which is again free to all comers .. Entertainment is dealt with by the dedicated TUI entertainment team coupled with Jay and also supplemented by acts brought over from the UK. They will keep you amused and entertained during the day around the pool area and also perform some of the production shows in the evening. They are also assisted by the resident duo of Dolly and the Gambler. Now to the angst and chagrin of the AGB faithfuls and a few other reviewers we found the whole entertainment team to be lacking a little this year. Whilst not denying the TUI team do have talent they were not up to the standards of previous years and on a few occasions we found some of their efforts a little cheesy....although on balance they did also present some good points. Likewise the new resident duo of Dolly and the Gambler ,although having big shoes to fill,did not come up the mark in our opinion. They failed to have a great stage presence and needed to do more than strum a guitar and sing along to full backing tracks. It's only our opinion - some others may love them. Which brings us to another point. These holidays are now booked through TUI and not Thomson. In previous years the demographics of the guests was generally 90%+ British aged over 45 yrs with a few Europeans or independent travellers making up the rest. Now TUI are responsible for the bookings we found that this year the British guests were at about 65% with the rest from Europe and Russia and the age range had lowered to 25+. Whilst this may not be a bad thing for the hotel it may have implications for the entertainment. Thomson sold these as Gold holidays and a part of the concept is that the entertainment is geared to the British audience . As the number of British guests are reducing and the whole gold scene is now becoming rather old and dated I cannot see the brand lasting in its present format for more than another year or so and that ultimately TUI will dispose of it.....just a thought for the future. As regards ourselves,every year we say we won't return but every year we do.........it remains to be seen however what happens next time. In summary,don't get us wrong,this is a good hotel which has a lot to offer and visitors will undoubtedly love it.......so if you fancy it then go for it and you will not be disappointed... And in the words of Nicolette - Yiamas!!!!!!More

John & Carol stayed 03/09/2017-10/09/2017: My wife and adult children arranged this holiday to celebrate my 65th on 5th September. Our children arrived prior to ourselves and we joined them on 3rd September. At this stage I wish to thank management and in particular Michael, (front desk), for his generous help in arranging, with my daughter, for us to be upgraded to a spectacular superior room. I can only describe this room as heaven on holidays. We had an extremely large balcony overlooking the pool and sea with panoramic views all around. We also had a very large 2nd bedroom/living room with all modern flat screens TVs in both rooms. Pure luxury. Bath robes slippers and a Jacuzzi to name just a few. Very spacious and without a doubt the best room we have ever spent holiday time in. Thank you management: Holiday itself, what can I say except it was exceptionally good. Everyone we spoke to, or came into contact, with were 1st class friendly and helpful. It was the wee touches, like staff bringing around cold face flannels, slices of watermelon and even a wee ice cream bar. That was all much appreciated. From morning to night all staff worked hard to just make sure you had an enjoyable holiday. The day-time bar stewards were constantly walking around making sure you had a cool drink, alcoholic or soft and it was brought to your sunbed. Fantastic, I only went to the pool bar myself once and pleasant and efficient staff served me, so I was able to return to my relaxing sunbed. On that subject, as there was 5 in our group I knew it would not be easy to get 5 beds together. However, we managed it every day on the grassy bit and we have no complaints. You just adapt to suit your needs. Food wise, we also have nothing but praise for the chefs as we always found something to our liking. I'm personally not a breakfast person but I thoroughly enjoyed the back bacon and toast that was enough for me. Lunch was served with a fantastic view of the sea and beach. We thoroughly enjoyed this visit even though it was tempting to eat too much so we forced ourselves to resist. Our evening meal was our, meal, to sit back enjoy and we did. It was also an unexpected welcome when I was presented with a decorated cake for my birthday. We did not visit the a la carte restaurant or other tempting offers because we were happy with what was on in the main restaurant. At night, we mainly set outside the ballroom, as we prefer to be outside on holidays. The bar steward we had was called Nicky, and he was able to remember our 5 drinks and serve them with a smile. Thanks Nicky, hope I spelt your name correct. On the 3 nights we sat inside we were also served by a very efficient bar steward but I can’t remember his name, but he wore a hat. Pass on our thanks to him also, 5 of us ordering different drinks must have been confusing, but he always got it correct. Well done. I did not take part in many of the daytime games etc., as I was with my own family together on holiday for the first time in 20 odd years. However, the entertainment team without a doubt put 100% into what they were doing. They were all on the go from morning till night and came onto there own during that nights entertainment performances. Thanks, for an enjoyable holiday, to all of you. We did not need to see the reps much, as we had no problems, except for a minor problem when my wife thought she had left her iPad on the transfer bus. Troy dealt with this in a professionally manner, until we had to go back to him and say we had found it. His answer was absolutely, classic. It left us in no doubt that if we had required further help he would have provided it. Thank you Troy. As a result of this fantastic and enjoyable holiday we will rebook it for next year. I can honestly say that in the around 28 holidays we have had with Thomson’s this one had shot to the top of the tree as our best ever. When credit is due to a hotel I think it should be given and in closing I wish again to give my thanks to Michael and the entire hotel staff. (Michael, you made this holiday extra special and thanks 1,000%) John AdamsMore
Best holiday we have ever had
We had never been to this hotel but booked purely as a result of Trip Advisor reviews over the past year. On arrival which was at 11.50 p.m. we were greeted with an enormous welcome from the reception gentlemen. Then handed a glass of prosecco which was much appreciated. Following a very quick check in with a full speedy explanation of the room access and facilities of the hotel we were shown personally downstairs to enjoy a cold buffet with hot and cold beverages available. A very pleasant porter brought our cases to our room explaining how to open the sliding patio doors leading on to our balcony. I never mastered it but my husband had already worked it out. Our room was on the 4th floor overlooking the main road outside the hotel. It was 430 and had a very private balcony. We had not put in a request for a pool or sea view and I would suggest this is important to do so. We enjoyed what view we did have as we could see the hills in the background and enjoyed people watching at the bus stops outside the Hotel. Regular buses of approximately every 15 minutes go to Paphos from across the road and in front of the hotel to the left they go to Coral bay. We ventured to Paphos harbour one evening which was a wonderful experience. I say ventured because there was a reluctance to leave this wonderful hotel at all! Beautiful views. Fantastic entertainment team during the day and at night spoilt with so many excellent tribute acts and shows for us guests. Our favourite act was Tina Turner but all of them were amazing. The Hotel duo Dolly and the Gambler performed twice each night and Dolly exuded personality and had a brilliant rapport with the audience. Both of the duo had fantastic vocals and again a varied and enjoyable range of songs. We loved them performing at the hotel BBQ. Where a fantastic experience of dancing to the music in the beautiful sunshine was experienced by some guests who loved participating. All staff at this hotel make guests feel special from arrival to departure. Obviously returning guests are welcomed very personally but after a short time we were made to feel as though we were friends of all staff. The food service and hospitality of this Hotel is hard to beat. The A la Carte meal is a must with one of the courses can be chosen a fillet steak of at least 12 oz. It was so tender it felt like butter in your mouth. Delicious food on this night which must be booked early as limited spaces. We booked on our first full day. The lobby bar with nicolette and victoria serving so efficiently with the loud shouting of Yamass by Nicolette at every opportunity creates a very happy experience. Afternoon tea and cakes are served in this bar at 4 pm and also this bar doesn't close until 1 a.m. All inclusive have to pay for anything after midnight but by then you have had more than your fair share of drinks and water for the day as if your glass is empty immediately you will be offered another!!!!! During the day the service around the pool area is fantastic with drinks and a cold towel plus melon brought as treats. Lovely touches are given by this hotel and staff even ice creams brought round one day by the Bar manager and staff. Matt Nat Jess Emily and Jay made our time exceptional. A brilliant team during the day entertaining guests with such fun and games and all with great voices and skills in performing their shows at night. We can understand fully why people return here year after year. It was an unforgettable holiday. We went all inclusive for 11 nights from the 2/9/17 to 14/9/17. I would recommend this Hotel experience to anyone who wants to experience an unbeatable place to stay.More
Fab Holiday as usual
This is our third visit to the Atlantica Golden Beach, it just keeps getting better and better. The weather was really great , the staff were brilliant as usual , special mention to Nicolletta Alex Vasili , the entertainment team Matt Nathanial , Emily and Jessica worked so well together and made sure that your weren't pushed to join in but were made very welcome if you did . They all have great singing voices so they're shows were great. The food was excellent in particular the A la carte , the BBQ on the Friday and the special Cypriot evening with dancing and all the staff taking part . The management at this hotel join in for all of these things and seem to really enjoy. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday and it flew by too fast. The only downside was the regulars were up at six am to bag a sunbed which is absolutely ridiculous , we looked down one day and it was still dark and they were on they're sunbeds , this is by no means the hotels fault. Looking forward to our next visit next year .More
