Athena Beach Hotel

This hotel deals in big numbers. For starters, there are three huge pools as well as a 2 paddling pools for children. Then you’ve got six restaurants – they’re a mix of buffet and à la carte, and all come with first-rate sea views.

The only thing that separates this supersized hotel from the sea is a shingle beach, where you’ll find loungers and waiter service. A 30-minute walk – 10 by bus – takes you to Paphos harbour.
