    Location wise the hotel is in a great spot away from the main tourist area but close enough to some great restaurants and a few nice bars, with the the main tourist strip is approximately a 15 minute walk away.

    The pool area and gardens are simply fantastic with attentive pool staff assisting to your every need from moving umbrellas to fetching drinks. Service generally within the hotel is very good and what you would expect of a 5 star hotel with the maid often coming again during the evening to freshen up the room while you are out remaking the bed and tidying up the bathroom.
    Breakfast is lovely with a wide selection of food ranging from fruit to a Full English including a counter cooking eggs and omelettes. Staying half board we only ate dinner in the hotel once on their "Cypriot night" where we enjoyed a buffet style dinner complete with Cypriot dancing. Nice food, but expensive.

    Rooms are large with huge balconies but are in need of updating. The Amathus markets itself as one of the leading hotels in the world but in my opinion the rooms are more 4 star than 5. Our room faced towards the main road but the hotel is set back far enough so that you don't hear any noise from either the road or the bars near by. I have loaded over 100 high quality photos of the Amathus Beach hotel and the resort of Paphos onto my website blaxiDotCom so you can see the bars and restaurants and view the hotel for yourself. I hope you find this useful.

    Our flight was very early in the morning so having checked out of our original room by 12.00, the hotel offered us a courtesy room to freshen up in after returning from the pool, and then another courtesy room from 9PM onwards until we were picked up for our flight around 1 AM. Both rooms were sea facing and if I were to stay in the hotel again would probably pay the extra to enjoy the view.

  • Probably the best 5* overall


    We have been going to Cyprus 2 - 3 times a year for the last 12 years, and have stayed at the Coral Beach resort hotel several times (excellent), the Elysium (also excellent but a little snobby), the Annabelle(was very good 4 years ago but a bit rough around the edges now, but still very nice) Le Meridian in Limmasol,(also very very good), and in May this year we tried a Private Apartment, but we are going back to the Pathos Amathus Beach Hotel again for a week 13 - 20th July 2004 we have booked a room (directly with the Hotel its cheaper ) on the ground floor with a garden and pool. We would recommend the Amathus Beach anytime.

    Unique Quality: This Hotel has everything you could wish for if you don't mind spending a few bob, although the main cocktails and drinks are roughly half the price they charge at the Elysium.! The food is first class and the staff could not be more helpfull and friendly. There are some good restaurants just over the road in and around the triangle, and hundreds of bars and restaurant on the way down to the harbour and as you head up towards Bar Street although Bar Street gets very noisy, but its worth a visit as there are lots of good bars and eateries around the area.
    Try the Seagull Restaurant which looks out to the sea and the Fort at the end of the harbour and is just down from the Annabella. Brilliant with a true Cypriate atmosphere and knowledgable friendly staff. Paphos is a brilliant place to be and we love it, and still find plenty to see and do there.

    Directions: Located next to the Old Winery Works about 2 kilometers up from the Harbour

Luxury Hotel Accomodation

Our week at the Amathus Beach Hotel was wonderful. Luxurious accommodation, pool, excellent gym/spa and marvellous dining experiences. The morning buffet was terrific, served beside the pool in lovely landscaped grounds. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Pros and Cons of the Paphos Amathus Beach

by TripAdvisor Member jomajo

If you are reading this it is probably because you are looking to go to the Paphos Amathus Beach, and you have probably (as I did) read the other very mixed (1 star to 5 star) reviews on the hotel!

We have just come back from a week at the hotel and I thought I would add my review to help explain why the hotel gets such varied reviews, which hopefully will help you to make up your mind whether to go.


- The pool is wonderful, the best thing about the hotel (large, clean, attractive, no childrens toys/floats allowed, pretty empty)

- The pool attendants are brilliant, if you got up to try and move your parasol a man would jump out of nowhere to do it for you. They also bring around cold towels at midday (lovely!) and the bar service is good too (no need to get off you sunlounger). Both pool attendants and waiting staff were very pleasant.

- We had no problems getting sunloungers at any time of day

- Although the hotel restaurants are expensive there is no need for you ever to eat in them as there are good restaurants nearby (Oleastra was our favourite - turn right out of the hotel and it is a short walk past the Rib Shack (not our scene though it was packed every night!) past the French and Italian restaurants). There are a lot of restaurants in Paphos itself and although some are tacky there are quite a few nice ones, including a wonderful Chinese which is above a bank (on the sea side of the road as you come into Paphos from the hotel). There are some cheap and cheerful (without being too tacky) restaurants up at the harbour end of Paphos.

- The rooms are large (we only had a standard size room but there was plenty of space)

- Varied choice for breakfast

- There is a small supermarket nearby for stocking up on soft drinks, nibbles, chocolates etc (NB you have to smuggle these in as you are not allowed to bring in outside drinks really!).

- Underground car-park so no worries about hiring a car and keeping it at the hotel.

- Free English newpaper every day (but see "Cons" below)


- The free newspaper was the Daily Mail, aarrgghhh!!!

- The drinks are very expensive (including the poolside drinks)

- The food in the restaurants is expensive (but see "Pros" above)

- They should really have at least one decent restaurant where casual dress is permitted (but see "Pros" above)

- No tea and coffee making facilities in the room (I think this is to try and get you to order room service tea or coffee which is outrageously expensive). Even 2 or 3 star hotels have tea and coffee making facilities!

- Overpriced rooms

- The standard rooms are not particularly inspiring given it is a 5 star hotel.

- Our corrider was also looking quite "tired" and had a rumpled carpet. Note really a problem for us but there are a few old people staying in the hotel who could potetially trip up.

- Our room was a "town view" room, but in reality this meant it overlooked the refuse collection which was extremely noisy and smelly every morning at 8am!

- Air conditioning seemed to only have one temperature (adjusting the dial made no difference whatsoever) so we were either freezing cold with it on or boiling hot without it

I guess my conclusion it that it is a nice hotel, but not nice enough to justify the price tag. If the holiday had been, say, half or even two thirds of the price, and the restaurants drinks and food a bit cheaper, I would have been pretty satisfied. I would therefore recommend this hotel if you are able to get a good "deal" on the price.

paphos amathus is a great place to stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

i stayed in this hotel for over 2 weeks and it is really nice the staff are very friendly and there are loads of activities for the children it is clean and the rooms are lovely. the spa is wonderful and has some very up to date treatments. the hospitality dask is great and the lady is extremly friendly. the reception is helpful and you can buy daily papers from the shop inside the hotel. over the road there are restaurents to eat in for lunch if you are on half board and there are places to hire cars. there are alot of historical places near buy to visit. yopu can also get into town by taxi for only 4 cp if you don't have a car. if you like to play golf on holiday you can go to the local golf course called secret vally which you get disconted rates for if you are staying at the paphos amathus. overall this is a great place to go and i recommend it highly.

One of Limassol's best!

The Best Hotel in Paphos

by american_tourister about Paphos Beach Hotel

$100.00 per night in 1984 Just came from Saudi Arabia. At breakfast I saw two Saudis at another table. For one it was his first trip out of country. He asked if they had alcohol. I laughed and ordered a bottle of Othello. We had it and eggs for breakfast.


by TripAdvisor Member FraCas

The Paphos Amathus Beach Hotel is fabulous. My husband and I have been there three times (including our honeymoon) and it really is a special place.
When you walk in, it really has the WOW factor and you will be given a lovely cold fruit cocktail and a "cold-towel" upon arrival. The rooms are very clean and spacious, and you are provided with fresh towels twice a day should you require them. The poolview rooms have a spectacular view - especially at dusk, but whether they justify the extra money, I'm not sure.
The pool area is our favourite part of the hotel, very clean yet relaxed, there are lots of attentive staff (that don't bother you at all but are there whenever you need them - for drinks or to adjust your umbrella/sunlounger), the pool itself is fantastic, there are plenty of sunloungers, more "cold towels" at midday everyday, ooooh, just lovely. The hotel spa is very nice, the private jacuzzi room is a real treat, and the gym is OK - but who wants to go to the gym when you're on holiday!!!!!
As for food, the breakfasts are the best we've ever experienced (and we have travelled far and wide) - they serve everything you could ever ask for and more, and again, the stff are attentive, friendly and really look after you. There is no need for lunch as the breakfasts will keep you going all day, and for dinner the best restaurant in the hotel is La Terraza (outside). The food (especially the starters) are spectacular and after about your eighth course, you just don't want to move. We ate in the two indoor restaurants, but weren't overly impressed really - they seem to have quite a few "themed" nights which in our opinion were a bit tacky, but probably quite nice for the elderley.
There are a couple of fantastic restaurants to the right as you come out of the hotel - Oleandro (Mediterranean) was our favourite, and the Italian was pretty good too. We tried the Chinese on our first trip to Paphos, but it wasn't good - definitely wouldn't recommend that!
We're going back in a couple of weeks time (can't stay away!) - and if you too are going, I hope you found this review of use.

Very Nice!

by TripAdvisor Member Buckby

We have just returned from 2 weeks stay in this lovely hotel. This was our second visit. The main attraction in this hotel in our opinion is the pool, beach and garden area, it is just superb with really attentive pool attendants and waiters. Even on busy days (yes, when the 80 people from the company outing were staying there) the pool staff soon sorted out sun beds and shades. Special mention must go to pool attendant "Rob" who was just superb. The rooms are very clean, very quiet and also a reasonable size. Likewise the bathrooms. But no tea making facility in the rooms!! To have 2 cups of tea delivered by room service costs CYP£2.20 per cup plus CYP£1.00 per person which is about £7.70 sterling - OUTRAGEOUS!! Another negative point is the price of the evening dinners. In one restaurant the main course alone was CYP£30! which may be ok for a one off treat but not for 14 nights as there plenty of good eating places in Paphos. We did eat at the Sunday night carvery for CYP£19 (plus wine) which was very very good, but beware of the offer of a glass of champagne as an apertif as you enter the restaurant as they charge CYP£7.50 per glass. A good plus point is the breakfast, with a good selection of quality foods in a nice setting. We do think however that the plus points FAR outway the negative, and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Ask your holiday rep about going on the hot air balloon trip - BRILLIANT!
