“Amazing hotel and wedding venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

What a fabulous hotel! Got married here on the 2nd of July this year and stayed for for a week along with family and friends. The hotel itself is stunning and beautifully clean. There is a small army of people who work from dawn just to keep everything pristine and always with a smile.
The rooms are lovely, we had a cabana which was just fabulous and others in our party had superior rooms - it is worth upgrading to a seaview room for the views and no noise from the road. All are spacious and very well maintained.
The food is quite simply gorgeous in all of the restaurants and choices just sumptuous!
All the staff were so pleasant and just couldn't do enough for us. Special mention for Philippa, guest relations who was lovely, Emma in the dining room and Alina the cocktail waitress who was so bubbly and befriended our little granddaughter without seeming to mind her following her everywhere! The pool areas were great with all kinds of water features and in the heat it was quite nice to have an indoor pool too as an option to cool off.
Although we didn't join in any of the activities, the animation team seemed very busy and feedback was good.
Finally our wedding - what a lovely venue! It was a bit of a risk booking this event without visiting the venue beforehand but there no need to worry, Eva the wedding co-ordinator was wonderful and attentive to all our needs - as by the way was Leanne from Cyprus wedding advisor who coordinated it all on behalf of Thomson. The Unity terrace is beautiful and totally private from sun bathers and others, It was a real wow factor for us and our guests particularly when decorated. It was beautiful to watch the sun setting from the terrace too! The champagne and cake cutting reception and sit down reception was just lovely and again the food was stunning. Our head waiter for the whole evening, Neofytos was great and his mix of attentiveness and humour was just right.
We only wish we had stayed longer as a week wasn't enough but we will be returning for our anniversary for sure!

Room Tip: Definitely choose a sea view or a cabana

I've just returned from a 10-day stay here and I can honestly say this hotel is in a league of it's own. The staff are superbly trained. Everyone from the manager to the cleaner greets you with a smile and a good morning. The best features; personally allocated sunbeds, spotless rooms, comfy beds, good food. There's no real downsides so I'll be really picky and try and find fault. Hot water tends to run out after 7.30p.m.(yes I know that's normal), the beach is stony(walk 100yds to the next cove and it's pure sand) and the entertainment is standard hotel fare. (what else would you expect?)
The beach in the next cove is delightful with a cafe and sunbeds and an easy slope to access it. Drinks are reasonably priced at 6eu each for lovely cocktails. When I booked this trip I thought it was a bit pricey (£2600 for 2 h/b) but I now think it was very cheap. Truly amazing hotel, superbly run by the very hands-on manager.

Room Tip: partial sea veiw rooms are at the front which hs some road noise. It didn't worry us but it migh...

Have recently come back from a 11 night stay at this hotel and can only say 1 thing & that's that the hotel was amazing. Staff were brilliant & very accommodating. Food was great and the idea of sunbed allocation was fantastic! Best idea since sliced bread! My daughter was married at this hotel and I really can't find fault in anything or anyone concerning her wedding day, it was totally beautiful in a beautiful setting and would recommend this hotel to anybody who may be thinking of getting married abroad. Would also just like to mention the company 'Perfect Weddings' who my daughter used to organise the wedding, they were fantastic, they did us proud. Many thanks to everyone for making it a fab holiday & wedding all round.

Wow!! Just back from our awesome 2 weeks at The Alexander the Great Paphos where do we start? Even before the holiday began the backroom staff of Leoni and Pambos do their very best to ensure any requests made are followed through and where possible make happen. You walk into Reception and the staff there are very professional and polite. We were greeted by Theo who ensured our check-in was smooth and swift and washed down with a welcome drink. The rooms are spotlessly clean, beds comfy, sheets changed regularly, towels every day and again our cleaner was brilliant! Food and beverages are excellent something for everyone. Executive Chef Pambos runs a very tight ship with outstanding service from George, Dimitri, Marios and Stavros and so many others too numerous to mention. The service is completed by wonderful Hostesses Emma, Aphrodite, Elena, Athena and Alla and many excellent waiters and waitresses. We must also mention Kiku superbly led by Raj and Garibaldi the two Al a carte restaurants on site which complete an outstanding dining experience. The bar staff managed by George are again hardworking and attentive, we seemed to have been served by the same three girls who were funny and welcoming. Then down to the Pool Bar with again outstanding service from Jakub and Yiannis who was always there to bring a cooling drink to your sunbed. What better way to end your night by watching a variety of fabulous shows from your Entertainment Team admirably led by Warren and Beth. Last years shows took some beating but Steven, Emma and Emily have done a magnificent job in such a short space of time making every show worth watching plus they run a programme of daily activities. Finally thank you to everyone - you all work so hard and made our holiday very very special indeed!! Regards Marg and Ernie

My wife and I have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel. Everything was of the highest standard and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Although we had paid for a Superior Sea View room, I emailed the hotel and asked if it would be at all possible to have a room on the top floor as we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. Philippa Roumelioti the Guest Relations Manager emailed me back saying she would arrange for a surprise in our room. When we arrived at the Hotel we were given room 302 which was absolutely stunning. The room itself was of high quality decor and kept exceptionally clean the whole time we were there. The balcony was amazing, with views spanning from the Harbour, right up to the Mountains. The Hotel Manager Andreas Christodoulides, was always around the Hotel, to make sure that everybody had everything they wanted, and that everything was ok. The food was always presented well, with plenty of choice for anyone. The choice of Restaurants is a very good idea for people that wanted to try something different. How pleasantly surprised we were, when we returned to our room on the afternoon of our Wedding Anniversary to find Champagne on ice for us. A big thank you for that goes to Phillipa. We would definitely recommend this Hotel to anyone. We definitely hope to return next year. Well done to all the staff for their excellent service. Terry and Carole Ward

Review may be late but I just wanted to express how fantastic the Alexander is. We got married here in October 2010. Not sure if the guest relations manager Melina is still working there but she was fantastic.
The whole stay was a pleasure.
Rooms were very clean and spacious, Nice little chocolate left on the bed pillow each night for my 2yr old made him smile.

I know the hotel has undergone extensive renovation since we were there and looks amazing. We will be returning in the not so distant future.

This was the first time we have returned to the same hotel twice. We had such a wonderful holiday here last year we decided to return to celebrate our Ruby wedding and we weren't disappointed. We booked a sea view room and I emailed asking to be allocated a room on the 3rd floor on the left side and this was just what we got. There was champagne in the room on arrival, nice touch. Everything I recorded in my review last year is as good or even better; the hotel is beautiful, the location is good, lovely food with plenty of choice - well cooked and tasty and last but not least the thing that makes this hotel so good, the staff. Everyone of the staff we met was efficient, professional, helpful and friendly and I mean everyone. I just couldn't single anyone out and name them, the list would be endless! Thank you Alexander The Great.....We will be back.
