Atlantica Aeneas Hotel

Just tracking my flight home.
Left Malta early afternoon for Dubai, with a stop in Larnaca. This was just a drop off and pick up stop. Passengers going on to Dubai weren't allowed off the plain. So I spent an hour watching round staff clean the plane and cabin staff complete security ...
... here. Portions are big but they are not gourmet. This is one of the mistakes many tourists do. If you are after gourmet dishes you can find them at 5* hotels and in Signature restaurants in the big cities and expect to pay much as well.
IN ALL: Dishes were cooked to perfection and we both enjoyed our meal.
The word meze means variety and it comes in small portions similar to the Spanish ...

The belfry of the Monastery is still in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantica Aeneas Hotel Ayia Napa
Calls itself a 5 Star but a really an overpriced 3 star!
Have visit Cyrpus six times and have stayed at better 3 star hotels at a third of the price. We visited Aeneas in August 2005 and were absolutely disgraced at the quality of hotel; the bath was yellow, the room was small and basic, generally the accomodation and hotel was overpriced, badly managed and not looked after. The only plus is the swimming pool. Overall I would never visit Aeneas again and would not recommend it to anyone.
I may be a little biassed as I have been to Cyprus many times and love the place, however I thought I would pass on my views. We stayed at the Aeneas (for the first time) mid June 2005 and chose it mainly because of the pool, but also for it's location as it is virtually 30 seconds from Nissi beach, about a 15 minute stroll to Water World (the fabulous aqua park there) and about a 15 min walk into Ayia Napa for bars and clubs. Whilst I agree with some of the comments on here, it seems like many people have either been unlucky or just have far too high expectations. As far as "Eastern Europeans wrapping up food to take to the pool" or "children running around" goes, well that is not the hotel's fault but more the residents behaving in that manner in my opinion and something which could occur anywhere!
I came back from my vacation in Cyprus just yesterday. I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel facilites were very good, clean and luxuary. Especially swimming pool is the hugest and greatest in my experience. I also visited Adams Beach Hotel and peeked its pool and beach, however, Aeneas Hotel was much better than Adams Beach concerning the pool.
Room was very spacious and clean. I absolutely recommend this hotel to the family with young children. Only one bad point was that a lady in the reception was not kind and friendly. I was a little bit angry with her attitude.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Aeneas Hotel.
Ok just ok
i stayed here for my honeymoon. fab hotel and very fancy but a bit too much the thing. to be honest anyone who is thinking about it for this occasion i would say go for the adams beach across the road it is gr8. direct acess to beach more down to earth attitude. They did upgrade us to a suite in the aneas for our honeymoon but at night time when in the lounge for a few drinks, no-one speaks to you and the staff have a sort of what u doing in our hotel attitude. The breakfast was amazing everything from fresh fruti to bacon, eggs etc and nothing was spared, lunch there aswell was fab but the atmosphere of the place lacked alot. Was a good experience for honeymoon but would not return
I stayed at this hotel in April/May 2005 and thought it was a good choice for a first time visit to Cyprus out of peak season. The rooms are attractive and spacious and the outdoor swimming pool is beautiful, although the sunloungers are not that comfortable. Beach towels are provided each day. I thought the food was generally very good and you did not have to wait long for tea or coffee to be provided at breakfast - a big plus in my opinion. As a woman holidaying alone and dining alone, it was nice to have the option of having lunch, a picnic basket or room service instead of dinner on half-board basis if you wished. The hotel is just a short walk across the road from the crystal clear waters of Nissi Beach which is superb for swimming and would, I imagine, get very crowded in high season. All in all, excellent value for money.
Honeymooned at this Hotel but wish we had returned to the Adams Beach across the Road. This hotel, apart from the pool area and pool facilities is poor (not above average), therefore definitely NOT a 5 star!
The hotel itself was very nice, and the swimming pool complex was beautiful. However, my advice to anyone visiting Cyprus is not to go before the end of April because everything was shut down, including a lot of the facilities at the hotel, i.e. the pool bars, b.b.q. etc. and they were actually painting and carrying out repairs ready for the main season. The people at the reception were not very helpful or friendly. We only ate in the restaurant on one occasion, and it was definitely not 5 star cuisine as we know it. Breakfast was pleasant with a reasonalble variety of food, although the fruit was very often tinned instead of fresh, again not what I would expect in a 5 star hotel. (Just a note - breakfast was spoilt by children who were allowed to run around causing a nuisance - lack of parental control) The bar staff in the main bar in the hotel were excellent and very friendly, and happy hour was a pleasure! The rooms were average, although clean, but nothing out of the ordinary and also they were a long way from the main building when if was pouring with rain, which it did for two days! We felt that the 5 stars were given for the swimming pool rather than the rest of the complex.
I stayed at the aeneas for my honeymoon and chose one of the eleven best rooms in the hotel. The only problem is only seven of the eleven rooms stated have a private jacuzzi and direct pool access as stated by the hotel, so be careful to mention this when booking your holiday. The thing which sells this hotel is the pool the hotel grounds and layout which are all very good, it just doesnt live up to expectations on the other things like room facilities ,dining arrangments and the tacky plastic sun loungers seen in every other hotel in the med. Dont get me wrong I did enjoy my stay at this hotel but feel I could have got a lot more value for my money by choosing a cheaper hotel and having more spending money, all round this hotel is nice but certainly not 5star.
