Historical Traveler Reviews Constantinou Bros Athena Royal Beach Hotel Paphos
Great place to stay -
This is such a great place to stay - wonderful without children - superb to just have some peace and quiet, relax and chill out.
The accomodation is very comfortable and spacious. We had a room with sea view which was worth the extra to us.
The restaurants catered for all tastes and palates, everything was well presented. They do stipulate in the brochures that gents should wear long trousers for dinner and they do adhere to this rule - smart shorts would not be accepted, which is a bit of a downside when its warm ! however that was the only 'downside' of the entire stay.
The spacious gardens/pools were kept well and comforable sunbeds were plentiful, so there was no need to get up early to get your sunbed for the day!
There was not a lot of entertainment, but you can use the sister hotel next door if thats what you want. There was a resident pianist to enjoy relaxed evenings with.
All of the staff in all areas were welcoming, pleasant and friendly.
The whole hotel was kept impeccably clean and in good state of repair.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would say that the photographs in the brochures do not fully resemble just how lovely this place really is.
I love the Hotel
We had a lovely time at the hotel, i fully recommend it. The staff were friendly and attentive. The location of the hote lis perfect, i have no negative things to say about it.
This hotel provides a service which cannot be beaten.
For accommodation, food, surroundings, leisure facilities and the service given by highly trained personnel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff wherever they are within the organisation.
I cannot speak too highly of this hotel.
Been meaning to leave a review of this hotel for ages as it was sooo nice.
Like many of the reviewers, my friend and I were upgraded from the Pioneer Beach hotel which was actually further away from the harbour than the Athena royal so that was what swung it for us. Really nice room with bathrobe and slippers provided along with wine when we arrived. Also, the air conditioning, safety deposit box and beach towels were not charged for which was great.
Breakfast was also really varied. (although the scrambled egg was something else...)Pleasant staff, very helpful with everything, and the evening meals and entertainment were good.
Really close to the triangle and lots of bars and restaurants, and only a 20-30 minute walk to the harbour in Paphos.
Really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely like to stay again.
Would stay again
rooms are fresh and new ,
threepools one heated plus gym and indoor pool
breakfast realy good every thing you could eat sparkling wine to start your day
plenty of sunbeds, towels provided.
rooms are well apointed showers very good,bathrobes provided not to be taken to pools or beach ,
although a lot of germans looked stupid walking to the beach/pool area wearing them before striping down to their swim wear.
the only downside, the room appears to be only one brick separation you can hear every noise/sound
We stayed at the Athena Royal on a half-board basis in August this year. The hotel staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good - especially the breakfasts with a vast selection of hot and cold options. The pool area is fantastic with loads of sunbeds, free beach towels and no kids! As others have said, the beach is a little disappointing though. We'd definitely recommend sampling the cocktails in the bar - they're a little pricier than in the bars on the triangle but worth every penny! Everything about this holiday was excellent - from the wine and fruit in the room when we arrived to the concierge service when we left. We would love to return to the Athena Royal again and would highly recommend this hotel to other couples.
Brilliant New Hotel Athena Royal
Stayed here in June for 12 nights in a superior seaview room. We were a bit worried when we booked this hotel because it had not opened yet and hoped we would not be going to a building site. We could not have been more wrong and need not have worried. The Athena Royal is beautiful and the service first class. The hotel was only half full, probably because it had not been advertised in all the brochures being so new. However, a lot of the guests we spoke to had been transferred from other hotels within the same group and they were all extremely pleased they changed as this hotel is by far the best. The pool areas are spacious and clean and have many sunbeds and umbrelllas, not only around the pools but also on the vast area of grass that leads down to the beach. The two large outdoor swimming pools each have two built in whirlpools which I found to be quite unique. There was never any worry about getting up early to reserve a sunbed as there were so many, This hotel is for adults only, so if you have children I suggest you stay next door at the Athena Beach which caters for families, but is completely separate from the Royal. Food in the restaurant was a very good buffet with many hot and cold choices, and the theme nights held on the patio made a lovely setting with entertainment and dancing. Even lunch at the hotel was really good and not at all expensive, so we did not have to go looking for lunch and leave the pool area. If you want to eat out at night as we did on some occasions, there are some really good restaurants five minutes walk away at the Triangle. The best two were the French and Italian. This hotel is also very close to the Amathus Beach Hotel and to get into town you could either stroll there in 15 minutes, or get the bus which you can catch outside the Athena Beach. There is a PR hostess who comes round at the buffet breakfast just to make sure everyone is happy and she did a marvellous job, she is so friendly and cheerful. When she heard it was our anniversary, she arranged fruit and wine for us in our room when we returned after our day out, and a poster on our door with balloons! Staff on the reception were also very helpful. The hotel has its own well stocked supermarket where you could buy drinks etc to put into your fridge.
We were booked into the Athena Beach Hotel next door, but because the Athena Royal was newly openned and so must have had few bookings, we were asked if we would like to stay there.
Its an adults only hotel and after a look around we said YES!!!! Its gorgeous with a marbled foyer and pleasant bar area and all areas of the hotel are air conditioned. The rooms are well appointed - nothing special but well decorated, spotlessly clean (as you would expect from a new hotel), adequate storage, and a good size bathroom - the shower was fab! Our room had twin beds separated by a bedside table....however the housekeeper asked us if we wanted the beds together and as we said yes within minutes a member of staff appeared to move and remake the beds as a double. we had a sea view which was breath taking.
The pools were like baths, warm and inviting ( and no kids dive bombing etc!!!); and there was never any trouble getting sunbeds as there are masses scattered around the pool and on the grassy area nearby. Pool towels are provided daily from the spa area.
we were bed and breakfast so had the best of both worlds. Breakfasts were great, large selection of continental and cooked foods, cereals and bubbly too! And served by friendly, courteous staff (esp Ronnie). Lunch by the pool was good too. It was self service but always a smiling girl around to carry your tray to your table by the pool once paid for! Good selection of hot and cold.
Most evenings we ate out at one of the restaurants nearby. Special mention for La Cavallini - a fantastic italian which was always busy so you had to book! we ate there 3 times and were treated like royalty each time. We had 3 nights in at hotel for their special themed nights. The buffet style food was served outside by the pool and although reasonable, was nothing special. we didn't try the a la carte or table d'hote restaurants ourselves, but people we met who did said they were good. The outside terrace bar is fab and we sat each evening with our cocktails, drinks and complimentary canapes being served by lovely Eva and others before finding somewhere to eat.
The Athena Royal is about half an hour walk away from the harbour which we did several times but if you are not up for walking far then the bus service is extremely good from early morning right through to 11 pm in high season.
All in all we had a great time here and will go back one day.
stayed here for 2 weeks this year!! arrived and was upgraded to a 1 bed suite with extra bedroom great walk in wardrobe!!!. beach not so great still a bit rocky but 3 pools to choose from easy to get a sun bed so no need to get up at the crack of dawn oh except for breakfast which ends at 10!! (8am uk time!!! :o). staff all vert nice except some of the hotel lunch staff come accross a bit rude but not intentionly can give you the evils not good while your tucking in to the lunch try the milkshakes there heaven. no need to take beach towels as you can have as many as you want from the spa every day. other than that not a bad place to stay.

Lovely drive with Geoff and Amanda to Lefkosia (Nikosia) where we crossed the Turkish border. We did some shopping and had a drink of fresh lemonade at one of the cafes in the Suk.
We then drove to the Mall for some lunch before heading to Lefkara, a small village in the mountains famous for their lace and silver.
We got home after six, got changed and went to dinner in the town of Lemesol at TGIF.
It's so much fun being with Geoff, Amanda and ...
A forty minte taxi ride took me to the airport and into a small lounge via a fairly efficient passport control and security check. Larnaca airport is not large but is quite new so it was not far to the gate when we were called.
The flight back was on a 767 which is distinctly old and tired. But we were on time and I easily met Brian for the trip home. But late in at just after midnight.
... first time in 10 years for this part of the island to get snow!
Our adventurous spirits wouldn't allow us to remain in our flat all day though. We bundled up and headed out. Remember about that Ford Fiesta? The one that survived our off-roading adventures? Yep. Same car we got to take through the snow! Once again, we kept going until it just wasn't possible to get any further without chains. As fate would have it, the ...
... was very tourist oriented so we spent our first few days trolling the bars and cafés and basically "vacationing" since we had just finished our workstay. Mike even ventured out for a swim in the sea and while I (and several Cypriots dressed in winter parkas) watched from the beach (it was only 18 out!). The 1900 Art Cafe was nice enough to let us try out some of their 70 brands of beer during our stay...but I don't think we cracked 20 haha. Larnaca is well ...
SPA: I did not have the opportunity to try any of the treatments here but honestly the whole environment, the amazingly beautiful weather, the high temperature were calling out for outdoor activities so I did not bother.
CONCLUSSION: In all, I believe it justly ranks top on the charts. It might not be a cheap hotel but it excels at service, glamour and luxury by far other hotels in Paphos. So, if you want to pamper yourselves and experience all the above, this is the right place to ...
