This is 2.5* (two and a half star) hotel. Never again! Quick review: Overall evaluation: 2/5 (Terrible) This hotel is felt like it is 2.5* (two and a half star). You will be very disappointed and upset if you've got used to real 4 or 5 stars hotels. I'd recommend to stay away from it until either they lower their star rating to actual like a 3*, or till they fix everything up to declared 5*.

Nice hotel, with a very nice view, excellent location Clean hotel with a nice swimming pool but never trust the beach in that area because its full of rocks Nice staff and a very nice breakfast Hotel needs some update
In line with the majority of other reviews this is no longer a 5 star hotel. Whilst the staff are extremely friendly and the cleanliness of the rooms, restaurants and pool is to a high standard the overall fabric of the rooms is past its sell by date. We only went B&B so can only comment on the breakfast food which was of a good standard with plenty of variety. Good location for alternative dining options along the Tomb of kings road. We did receive a very good offer on arrival for a "free all inclusive uograde" for a week if we spent a night at an alternative hotel. We declined as we thought there may be a time share presentation involved!
We fancied a bit of Autumn sunshine so this was booked pretty quickly, it was either Tel Aviv or Cyprus, Cyprus it was and the Venus Beach was the outcome as we wanted to be just outside of Paphos. Impressive looking entrance and reception area, the staff could not be more friendly and helpful, all the hotel areas were clean and tidy, the rooms were looking a bit tired, especially the bathroom, only one PowerPoint in the room at a low level so had to be careful not to stand on phones when charging, the room safe was not free as in most hotels I have been in, 12 euros per week, the fridge bar was locked , another charge, it stayed locked, and no free Wi Fi, all a bit penny pinching I thought, no tea/coffee making facilities. Outside was a nice pool, oddly colder than the sea, a beach bar with friendly Sofia on hand to serve one, closes at 1800 hrs, swimming hours are 1000hrs to 1800hrs, presumably a safety measure. Plenty of loungers on hand and lots of shaded areas under palms. The beach area has a red flag, no bathing advised as there are riptides, they are trying to sort it out by making a stone barrier a few hundred yards out, lots of people in the sea anyway, I swam and found no evidence of it but be careful. Food was really nice, generally a lovely hotel with great staff. Unfortunately lots of Russians seem to have found Cyprus, who come across completely devoid of social graces and manners in general.
I stayed 3 nights, I didn’t spend any time at the hotel, just sleeping time in the room, the room have no safe box, all the time I put the sign of don’t disturb as I’m worry that something could be stolen from my bag, but the hotel staff knows very well when you are not in your room, and they inter and stole all your valuable belongings, they stole from my bag two watches, and when I complained to the hotel, the action of H.K manger is so shown that she share with the staff what they stole, hotel reception ask me to make police report, I did but in the end I got nothing and I lost two expensive watches, take care everyone, it’s more safe to stay anywhere than in this hotel
As a family we have been going to the Venus Beach for many many years, my daughters have practically grown up there. The hotel has always been a very friendly welcoming place, safe, nice and clean, the staff are always polite and go out of their way to help if needed. This year with the new extra outside cooking facility, there was always something for everyone. it is quite impressive watching all the cooking going on every lunch time and evening. The hotel is in a fantastic location, the pool is always kept clean and tidy, the sunsets are beautiful. checking flights at the moment and can't wait to book for next year.
The hotel has impressive public rooms but the bedrooms could do with some smartening up. The food was pretty good and we always found something nice to eat. There were plenty of sunloungers. The staff were very friendly. There were many Russians staying in the hotel. You can walk into Paphos along the coastal path or catch the 615 bus. There is a good zoo near Coral Bay. The Roman mosaics near Paphos Harbour are excellent. We went to Limassol on a day tour,, a bustling town. We were all-inclusive. Well recommended.
My husband and I have just returned from one week all inclusive at the Venus Beach. The reviews on here left me feeling a little apprehensive. I agree that it's not five star but look at the price, it cost less than half of the other five star hotels so I'm not sure what people expect at that price. On arrival we were upgraded free of charge to a sea view room which was a nice surprise. The room was a little dated but was clean and functional the bed was big and very comfy and the aircon worked well. The bathroom was a bit basic but was ok. There were no tea and coffee making facilities which I think they should provide. The fridge was locked so I didn't bother to explore that. The safe cost 12 euros for the week which is not expensive. The food was good and varied especially the outside show cooking. The dining room doesn't get too busy and there is always lots of choice. The food is prepared to a good standard, I am fussy and always found something I liked. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, service at the bars is quick and friendly. The all inclusive drinks were OK, yes they are not as strong as the premium brands but there is a good range and the cocktails are good. There are always plenty of sunbeds any time of day. The hotel is located on the beach so if you want to get away from the kids and splashing in the pool it is nice to sit on the beach area. As there is lots of room you are not crammed near to other people like some hotels. My only negative comment would be the location of the hotel. There are lots of bars and restaurants nearby but the harbour area is just over 2 miles away which is not what most travel sites sell it as. That said the buses are excellent and stop just out front of the hotel and for 5 euro you can use the buses for the whole day. They run about every 10 minutes. I only say the evening entertainment once which was a DJ who played what people wanted to hear and there was a friendly relaxed vibe. Overall I found this to be a good hotel that I would consider returning to as it was very good value for money.
my wife & I stopped for 7 days first time in pathos. Hotel was great, rooms very clean and fresh. Staff were fantastic very polite and help full. Balcony view was superb and a stones throw from the beach. Food was in abundance always something different every night, liked it so much booked for two weeks next September. Thank you Venus beach for a lovely holiday
