TravelPod Member ReviewsAmathus Beach Hotel Limassol
After great endeavours to publish my objective review in Trip Advisor, which seems to be affiliated with Amathus, I decided to issue in here.
Six years in succession we were spending winter holidays in Amathus Beach Hotel Limassol and after our visits we were longing to return. And what has happened with the hotel this year? Literally, renovation was not successful at all, expensive materials were replaced by cheap artificial ones, what certainly doesn't make it charming. Besides, the buffet was constantly substituted for A La Carte, furthermore some of the options presented in the menu were absent. In addition, it was the first time when we faced the problem with the pissed balcony of our room. Also, unfortunately, there are double standards regarding smoking prohibition in the rooms (surprisingly, some of the guests are allowed to smoke), that resulted in fusty and sour odor of the tobacco-smoke on the floor we lived in. Nevertheless, such cheerless thoughts are partly soften by sole professional waiter Lozana, whom we are grateful. It's a pity that everything ended this way. We won't come back.

Historical Traveler Reviews Amathus Beach Hotel Limassol
My wife and I stayed at the Amathus Beach Hotel recently as we were attending a friends daughter's wedding in Cyprus. Having stayed at several Leading Hotels Of The World in my time I can honestly say that the standards of service, the friendliness and the effort made to make us feel welcome and at home are second to none. The hotel is wonderfully located and is literally on the beach! No road between hotel and seaside. We will certainly visit in summer.
I attended a conference in Limassol recently and stayed at the Amathus Beach Hotel. It was excellent and I was really very impressed. I Strongly recommend it.
This year me and my wife have spend Christmas at the Amathus Hotel in Cyrpus.
I was supprised that the service and amenities of the hotel has met my expectations, as I am a person who is difficulty satisfied.
The food was quite good and the staff was excellent, taking care of us and making us feel like home.
The building is well maintain for its age.
The rooms are very comfortable with all the facilities a person might request.
If everything goes well, we will probably return next year.
Really really enjoyed
We spent a wonderful week at the Amathus Beach earlier this month. This hotel has such a good reputation and we can see exactly why. The management and staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful. We would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Limassol. It is in a great area, has a lovely beach and fabulous gardens and grounds. Spectacular!
Best Christmas Holidays
We have just return from our Christmas Holidays in Cyprus! We have stayed at the Amathus Beach Hotel in Limassol and we are so exsited.
It was the best christmas holidays ever and we always traveling during christmas period. This was really the best hotel we have ever visited. The programme they had, has satisfied all of my family.
The kids had a really nice time at the Juniors Club, the food was excellent and the entertainment was just perfect.
The staff was most helpfull at all times.
We have already made a booking to return Summer time
Fantastic hotel and staff
It's Christmas Night and we are still at the Amathus Beach Hotel in Cyprus. We were in another hotel down the road and moved here and can only say "thank goodness". This is a wonderful hotel whith excellent service and staff who go out of their way to help you. The Christmas Program has been so much better than we could have imagined.We strongly recommend this hotel to others travelling to Limassol, Cyprus.
Does what is says on the tin!
My Fiancé and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Amathus Beach Hotel booked via Soverign (I think that this is the Premium branch of first choice).
First impressions were good, the hotel is very clean and overall reflects the 5* expectations we had. In terms of somewhere to go and relax for a week in the sun I think it would be hard to knock this hotel as the facilities are good and staff very friendly.
Additionally there was a good choice of watersports and plenty of beach / pool space.
I would however agree with some reviewers that the value for money aspect of the trip could be better. We were on a B&B basis and even after we took up a promotion to prepurchase some meals they still came in as, if not more, expensive than eating out at a good external restaurant (Terra Mara - 5 minutes in a taxi heading away from Limassol is worth checking out). Additionally the local wine selection was expensive given the price it was typically available elsewhere.
In a more general sense I would also agree that Limassol itself did not have a huge amount to offer other than the usual "Brit Abroad" bars.
All in all we enjoyed our week and were able to relax but if you are on a budget or want to be kept active then perhaps there are better deals out there.
Would not recommend for families
We had high expectations of this hotel as read reviews and 5*.
Paid to upgrade to a Junior Suite which was a lovely room but that is all it is a room. No separate lounge area or bedroom so the 4 of us in one room.
The food was good but did not cater for children. The food was sophisticated and really needed to have a children's menu.
The biggest let downs were the pools and childrens club. When we arrived the girl did not supervise the children and our 4 year old could come and go and she had no idea where he was. The main problem was immendiately outside the club is a very deep pool (12ft in deep end!) So you can imagine worrying that a 4 yr old could easily fall into vey deep pool.
We did complain about the club and it was dealt with immediately thanks to the Guest relations manager. The club then has 2 girls Ashleigh and Bethan who were great. They orgainised movies for the kids most nights as there is no kids TV in rooms (unless you pay) and also disco weekly.
No day time animation programme although advertaised and evening entertainment was so poor. Went to the Four Seasons next door and the entertainment was great.
If the hotel management considered families and catered more for children this hotel would be good. The beach is also fantastic. Limassol not appealing and nothing outside hotel worthwhile so you are restricted with activities - especially in evening.
This hotel would appeal to the older clientele as very sophisticated and refined!
But the hotel management are very rude, dishonest and not at all helpful. In fact their attitude is to charge extra for everything and not actually consider the customer. Very poor customer service for a Leading Hotel of the World.
We visited the resort for two weeks, having visited the nearby Four Seasons a few years ago. The hotel is excellent, though not as good as the Four Seasons.
We travelled with our children (4 years and 2 years) and were thus placing strong emphasis on the services on offer for them. The kids club was great, very informal and our 4 year old could go in and out as he pleased. The added advantage is that the kids club is very near the pool, so if he wanted, he could swim and then pop in the club for half an hour and then com ebac to swim. It worked very well for us as our children do not like to spend hours on end in the kids club. Our 2 year old also grew fond of the kids club though she had to be accompanied by either my wife or I.
The childrens pool was good and partly shaded, which was required bearing in mind the temperatures.
The food at the hotel was very good and served our needs as theme night buffets go. There was always something available for the kids, including local cypriot items.
Those who have visited Limmasol will know that the beach is not great, though for the children it was great as long as they had a bucket and spade.
The staff at the hotel are extemeley friendly especially Natalie and Ashleigh who ran the kids and teens clubs
Sit back, relax
Spent a great four nights here just enjoying the hot hot weather and sitting in the luxurious gardens that run down to the beach.
Rooms were large and clean, nice decor and a decent bathroom. Small balcony, but enough for two and a decent sunset view.
It's a remarkably calm place given it's size, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Only had the breakfast here, which was normal average buffet - service perhaps not all it could have been as we often had to grab our own milk/cups for tea!
The hotel has an extremely elegant bar with live jazz singer, in the most tasteful fashion. Not really our thing, but some people would love it! A couple of decent looking reasonably priced restaurants also.
It terms of location, the hotel is at the top of a triangle of two beaches, either of which are nice, although busy at weekends. Taxi into town worked out at £5, so it's not too bad if you fancy a change of scene.
Restaurants around the hotel are all reasonable - but there is one that stands out - can't remember the name, but you will know it when you see it! Dress up, enjoy the food.

... your grace falls like the rain. You serenade your people with a soft lullaby of love.” ~JW
“What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rain will clothe it with blessings. They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem.” (Ps 84:5-7)
... sites close promptly at 4:30pm or 5:00pm depending on who runs the site. I brought up my intended trip to Mt. Olympus the following day and the ladies said they were planning to do that too but did not know which bus to take. Since I knew the bus, we agreed to meet tomorrow morning at a designated location and would take the bus together.
Maybe this was the reason I missed the bus this morning....who knows. ;)
Still loafing around Cyprus, spending time on the beach or helping my mate Alex with some building work he does....I'm now not allowed to touch anything glass like.....
Couple of photos from a trip to a hilltop monastery, none from inside as they don't let you in if you are wearing shorts......It's 39 degrees outside.....
Arrive at Limassol, Cyprus. We did the Pafos tour. Drove south to Pafos, there is a very large site of ruins with some magnificent mosaics.
... colonizers established themselves here. The settlement also prospered under the Ptolemies and Romans. A pre-Christian cult of Apollo was active among the inhabitants of Kourion in Roman times, as evidenced by the nearby Sanctuary of Apollon Ylatis and, despite the disastrous earthquakes in the region, an early Christian basilica was built in the 5th century, testifying to the ongoing influence of Christianity on Kourion by this time.”
