“Birthday celebration ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Had a wonderful time at this hotel , book the garden rooms/ cabanas they are fab!!! The guest liaison manager Philipa is an absolute star she made the holiday special. Beautiful rooms, pools, spa , views & exceptional food. The hotel has had a makeover and it is spotless. The service and courtesy from all of the staff was second to none very cheery and personable. The evening entertainment was not for me but that's a personal choice.
I would love to revisit and would recommend anybody of all ages to go and especially for a celebration.
I have travelled extensively around Cyprus over 15 years and this is the best hotel I have stayed in.

Stayed July 2014

We stayed here at the end of june for one week and wished we had booked to stay longer, as soon as we arrived everyone could not do enough for you the staff are excellent always remembering your names when you go for breakfast and dinner, rooms are immaculate cleaned twice a day clean towels twice a day and beach towels left in the bathroom for you with chocolates left on you pillow at night, but I really need to highlight the kids club Vicky and Sabine are the two girls who run the club are excellent they made my daughters stay here fantastic she went to the kids club everyday of our holiday it is a secure air conditioned room with lots of activities during the day they had face painting, t-shirt painting, pirate day, playing games drawing and painting then in the evening they have a mini disco, games and movie night between 8pm and 11pm. This was our third visit to paphos but this was the best hotel by far and we can't wait to return one day.

Dear Reviewer,

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, the whole team and I really appreciate the comments you have written.

Thank you for highlighting that you found the rooms to be immaculate, with towels changed twice a day, that pool towels are supplied in all the rooms and that you liked the turn down service in the evening.

Most importantly I am delighted to read that every member of staff couldn't do enough for you and that the restaurant staff remembered your names. Vicky and Sabine will be delighted when they are shown your review personally by myself and that you have mentioned all the activities that they organise for the children aged three to twelve years in the Little Monsters Kids Club. They will be so pleased that your daughter had a fantastic time with them.

From the whole team of staff and myself we look forward to the day when you once more walk through the door and are welcomed by all of us here at the Alexander the Great Beach Hotel.

We got married at the Alexander the Great last June and decided to return this year for our first wedding anniversary. As last year we could not fault the Alex in any way, the food is amazing especially the Italian Restaurant where we dined as an anniversary treat. The staff are so friendly and are always smiling and happy to help, special mention for Raj and Emma, and of course Phillipa who made us feel really special, and the bottle of bubbly and card left by Philippa in our room was a lovely surprise and greatfully received. We will definitely be returning in the future, and if anyone is looking to get married in Paphos I can highly recommend the ATG as the wedding terrace is the most amazing venue, book it you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must.

Alexander the Great helped make our wedding day absolutely amazing! We stayed here for 2 weeks with family and friends and we had a brilliant stay which was even better than we could have imagined! The hotel has been finished to an excellent standard, staff are friendly and the location is great.

We stayed in a sea view room which was of a great size, and the views out to sea from the room were beautiful, even from the bathroom you can see out to sea! The pools are stunning and the sun-bed allocation is a great idea, no rushing down at 7am each morning to grab a sun-bed! The only negative about the pool is they had a strict no games policy so the kids couldn't play bat and ball etc. which was a bit annoying.

We stayed full board plus which was great - the food selection was amazing, we have eaten at many buffet style restaurants and in terms of choice and quality this really is up there. Make sure you try out all of the restaurants, they are worth it.

Location - i have heard some people comment on the road noise, we had a sea view room so this didn't affect us at all so i would highly recommend staying this side of the hotel. You can take a nice leisurely walk down to the harbour using the pathway that runs along the back of all the hotels and only took around 10 minutes.

There are also water sports available at the back of the hotel which are reasonably priced, definitely worth a try if you fancy something a bit different.

Special thanks to Eva our wedding co-ordinator who was a dream, resulting in a completely stress-free build up to the day and on the big day itself. Also the food and beverage manager - such a great down to earth guy :)

Room Tip: Room facing the sea, away from road noise

Have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Alexander the Great and cannot fault anything.
we had a land facing room which was equipped with everything you need. Tv had all man 5 british channels as well as bbc world news. Rooms were cleaned every day and restocked with tea and coffee, clean towels (hand, bath and beach). Chocolates were left on pillows every night.
Breakfast was lovely with every food anyone could want fof breakfast.
the swimming pools were warm and clean and with sunbeds allocated to each room there was no rush down to the pool to claim a bed.
paphos harbour was a short stroll away and full of shops, restaurants and icecream shops. A mall a short taxi ride away had all the usual shops m and s etc.
we got married at the hotel. The venue was beautiful and staff went over board to make sure it was perfect, especially our waiter Neo, who made sure everyone had enough food, drink and were enjoying them selves.
I would not hesitate yo recommend this hotel it was everything we wanted and much more

We stayed at the Alexander the Great hotel from the 4th of July until today, the hotel was really outstanding. All of the Staff were friendly and were willing to help us with anything, Loved the fact that this hotel had sunbed allocations as it makes it easy in the morning not having to fight for one plus all of the sunbeds have amazing views of the sea. We stayed half board plus which is breakfast & tea with a bottle of water and any drink each but if your thinking of eating out one night then you can change your evening meal to lunch. Every day there is a great choice of meals that would suit everyone with the main restaurant offering a different theme every night. The location of the hotel is perfect you can see & are within 5 mins away from the harbour , the beach is on the doorstep and local shops and restaurants near the hotel front. The hotel was very clean , the maids clean the room twice everyday ... Loved the maid called Larissa everyday she would smile stop and chat & have a good giggle : ) ... Stevewilly_12 I strongly disagree with your comment in regards to the entertainment not only in the day there was a fantastic range of activities for all ages ... But comparing the entertainment in the evening to butlins makes me question whether you were watching the same as everyone else?!? as every night there was fantastic entertainment with a range for everyone! All of the kanika entertainment staff were awesome and made you feel like you were not just another guest & there acting/singing was 5* not only would I come back again but I would definitely recommend it to anyone... If you have booked you will not be disappointed ! Thank you to Beth,amy,Emily,warren,Steve, Larissa and Dennis ( waiter) for always having a giggle , getting us involved & making our holiday amazing see you next year same time ! Nicole & Pete x
