5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Thanks to all the staff at the Alexander for making our holiday yet again one to remember after last year's we thought it would be difficult to beat but fair play to you all you did it.
The refurbished hotel looks great and the food was brilliant we tried all the theme restaurants and all was suburb in every way well done.
Staff could not do enough to make sure the holiday was faultless.

This was my 3rd holiday at Alexander the Great in 2. 1/2years, last time was just before it shut for a refurb, so I remember well what it was like before and was looking forward to seeing it again.I was not disappointed! It is beautiful, contemporary and clean.! The food is plentyful and of good quality, the room maids keep the room spotless with limitless pool and white bath towels.
The hotel seems to be trying to attract more young families, which means more babies and toddlers in the dining rooms and around the pools so it is not as peaceful as it was, as before it was mainly couples and older people, Saga have many people coming here. For us, looking for peace and relaxation for the week we found being surrounded at dinner by screeching babies a bit much but it was probably just bad luck, I think the restaurant manager should seat families together at one end and invite couples looking for a relaxing meal at the other. I have still given this wonderful hotel 5 stars as it deserves it.
The big plus is reserved sun loungers and a late breakfast. This means no-one has to 'get up early' to place towels on sunbeds like in other hotels, you can actually have a lie-in holiday and a late breakfast as they are open until 1030am. Heaven. We would walk down the new promenade to Paphos harbour about 10-15mins stroll and perhaps have a coffee then back to the loungers waiting for us, great!

The entertainment was mainly the hotel entertainment crew who were quite good, before we seemed to have a additional outside professional entertainer every night, now we only saw them every other night or less. There was a boy George singer/tribute/comedian, and the wonderful Castle Cypriot Dancers doing traditional Cypriot dancing, and another night a Blues singer.
The food is great, the Japanese, Greek Tavern and Italian Adult only are well worth dining at, and one visit per week at each is included on half board, plus a glass of wine,beer and a bottle of water per meal. We swopped 2 dinners for lunches on a sun bathing day so we could eat out locally. Try LES AMIS, across the road!, turn right and down a turning, I had the best Fillet Steak Diane I have ever had in my life there, husband had a lovely sea bass. The also do a 3 course dinner menu for £15e pp, the special one night chicken stuffed with mushrooms and covered in sauce was lovely and a very large portion.

Yes we will be back. It would be nice if a loyality scheme was created for people spending thousands of pounds at the same hotel, I believe other local 4/5* hotels do this....a gem in Cyprus.

Room Tip: Always pay extra for a sea view room, as the rooms on the other side face a busy road with bars. The...

Dear Reviewer,

Warm greetings to you from a very sunny Cyprus and from all the management and team at The Alexander The Great Beach Hotel.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your repeat stay with us and that you found the hotel to be beautiful, contemporary and clean.

Our reserved sunbed allocation is and always has been a great selling point of the hotel, along with the location too.

I will also personally compliment our wonderful house keeping team as you have mentioned them too.

Plus we will take on board your comments re the seating of families in the main restaurant.

In closing thank-you for taking the time to write the review for us and looking forward to welcoming you back for your 4th visit in the future.

We spent a week at this hotel in June which had received a major refurbishment earlier this year. I have stayed in many hotels on business and my wife and I in hotels on vacations. This is one of the best.It is very clean,there are several very good restuarants to choose from. The choices of food are extensive and there are several pools for children and adults some of which have jacuzzis.The hotel borders on a small sandy beach and half the rooms have sea views.
Guests can book sunbeds and an umbrella for the week which overcomes the crazy morning dash to place towels on beds.The staff are very friendly and professional and every evening there is entertainment.On arrival free bottles of wine and a box of candies had been placed in our room where we could gain free wifi access via the tv to the internet etc.I thoroughly recommend this hotel

From the time we checked in with our complimentary drink until the time we left we had a fantastic stay. Our sea view room was spacious with the most comfortable beds we have experienced in any hotel. The bathroom was of a very high standard. Both towels and bed linen were changed regularly and the maid service was excellent. The pool area was lovely but we think it might get a little cramped in high season although the sun lounger allocation was a real bonus with no dawn patrol by the "towel brigade"

We were on a Half Board Plus basis which allowed us to dine in the Italian and Japanese restaurants both of which offered a superb dining experience. The Italian restaurant was small and intimate and felt that you were not in a hotel but in a fine restaurant offering superb quisine.The Japanese restaurant was situated outside on the edge of the hotel grounds and as well as offering good food with a difference also provided diners with superb views across to the harbour in Paphos. The Greek Tavern night which is held twice a week is also pleasurable with a taste of typical greek food. The Half Board Plus system also allowed us to switch from Dinner to Lunch which we did on several occassions allowing us to sample some of the many fine retaurants you find down by the harbour (we would especially recommend Theo's).

It was obvious that the hotel had spent a considerable sum on improving facilities both on the rooms and the pool area however the greatest asset that this hotel has is its wonderful helpful and friendly staff. Everyone from the management to our chamber maid always had a smile on their faces and greeted you daily as if they really wanted you to enjoy your stay. The bar staff and in particular the waitresses in the evening were extremely friendly and efficient. We are experienced travellers but have never felt so welcome as we did in the ATG.

The entertainment was first class with the "Kanika All Stars" working extremely hard throughout the day and in the evening they transformed into a talented group offering an excellent range of entertainment alongside external acts. We don't know where they get their energy from!!!

When we arrived in Paphos we were looking forward to our week away but never really anticipated returning as we like to try somewhere different each year. However as the week progressed we felt that there was every possibility that we would return to Paphos at some future date. If we do there is only one place that we would stay and that is The Alexander The Great.

Thank you one and all for a memorable holiday!!!

Room Tip: We were allocated a full sea view which was superb. We spoke to other guests with a side sea view wh...

My friend and I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Paphos and stayed at the Alexander the Great Hotel. We arrived at midnight on the 19th May. 2013 and were greeted with an ice cold cocktail and then had our bags taken up to our beautiful room. Staff were very friendly and we had a wonderful maid called Sofia who couldn't do enough for us! The food was superb, different dishes every night and of the highest quality. I have only stayed to watch the entertainment in a Hotel for a night but the All Stars, who were a group of two lads & 3 girls were fantastic! Oldie and Warren the lead singers did a tribute night to Micchael Buble and were outstanding ! The best entertainment that we have ever seen, even in the West End of London! We would definitely recommend the Hotel to anyone as it was in a superb location, stunning building and gorgeous infinity pool and outside area.Can't wait to go again! It was a dream holiday!

Although we did not stay in the hotel five of us had their lunchtime buffet . This was very good but we were taken aback by the price of a local Cypriot wine which was marked up nearly six times the price at the winery, so we ended up with a French one. Surely this does not help the economy of the local community. Shame on them !

We visited ATG early May for our 7th time. It was the usual fantastic holiday with the high standards which we have come to expect. The refurbished rooms are lovely. The new outdoor pool is now all one depth (as is the indoor pool), which is perfect for wimpish swimmers like myself who need to be able to put a foot down when necessary!

We were on half board and enjoyed all our meals and cannot understand those who say that the food is bland as there is so much variety. Having a glass of wine and bottle of water included with evening meal is a lovely touch. We watched most of the evening entertainment and enjoyed it all.

I love the sunbed allocation system. In fact I love just about everything at this hotel. But, without a doubt, the main asset of the hotel is the staff. They are all unfailingly pleasant, cheerful, helpful and hardworking – I would love to name them all here and thank each one of them, but there isn’t room.

I could go on praising the hotel for ages but it has been said before so I will just refer you to all the previous good reviews.

I have never had such a relaxing holiday where I felt so well looked after. We look forward to returning again next year and cannot wait until we are sitting once more on the terrace watching the glorious sunset, with brandy sour in hand.

Room Tip: Paying extra for sea view is well worth it. The views across to the harbour are lovely.
