“Wonderful Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Can't fault this hotel in any way and in my opinion it should be rated 5 Star! The rooms are comfortable, clean and with plenty of storage. All the staff at this hotel are wonderful and can't do enough to ensure your stay is comfortable. It is situated perfectly on the beach front, only a 10 min walk from the town and harbour with its shops and restaurants so if you are staying on a Bed & Breakfast basis there are a great selection of restaurants nearby to choose from. The hotel boasts an abundance of facilities which is why this is a favourite for people who return year after year. I would definitely recommend it and would not hesitate to return again. Thank you for making our stay with you so perfect.

Having visited for many years, we have been really impressed with the hotel's refurbishment. This has been completed to modernise the hotel without losing its charm & friendly feel. Without doubt the pool area is now classy but still "swim-able". The rooms are cool & luxurious. As always, service is first class. The unsung heroes are the army of cleaning & site staff who keep every area immaculate with relentless cheer.

We spent 10 nights at this lovely hotel in September of this year. I honestly can't say anything negative about it at all. On arrival we didn't get the sea view room we had requested at time of booking, but we didn't even care about that after the first day! The staff at reception had explained this on arrival and we were given concessions to make up for same.The room we were given for 2 days until the sea view room was available was still lovely-rooms had been refurbished the previous year to a high standard and were modern, comfortable and well equipped.The hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the staff are polite and friendly, and the rooms are well serviced.The food was to die for, but not good for the waistline! Sunbeds are allocated on arrival for the duration of your stay, which saves a lot of hassle.The manager is a friendly guy who makes himself accessible to guests every day by doing a walkaround the hotel and grounds. We loved coming back to our room at night to find the 'chocolate fairy 'had been and left us a gift on our pillows!
If I had to criticise one small thing, it was that my husband was told to change out of dress shorts for dinner and wear long trousers, but we did see one guest let into the restaurant on a couple of occasions with long shorts on-the staff seemed to know him-? a returning guest. My husband didn't mind changing at all, but should be the same rule for everyone.This still didn't change our opinion of this hotel-we will definitely go back again!

Having discovered The Alexander The Great Hotel some years ago My husband David and I have just had another excellent experience. The hotel facilities and especially the staff are wonderful. The whole holiday was relaxing with great service. The rooms are very good we had one overlooking the Med and pool with superb views of the Harbour. Can't stress enough how good this hotel is.
No doubt we will be going again in the near future

I spend a week in Paphos recently. I was brought to the bar in Alexander the great hotel. Beautiful hotel. Clearly had alot of hard work and planning into the decor! Unfortunately when i got to the bar, I was sorely disappointed. Being in the industry, I would expect a certain standard from a 5 star, but that wasn't to be. The bartenders need alot of work and training! Not attentive. One of my fellow travellers orders a frozen margarita and what he was given was nothing short of an iceberg! Completely tasteless, and not a hint of alcohol due to the amount of ice used.
As i said above i can not fault the hotel on presentation, but the beverage offer leaves alot to be desired!

This is really a one of a kind hotel. Stayed here with family, including child. We all had a good time. Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast buffet is good. Entertainment is nice and hotel grounds provide ample opportunity for everbody to relax or break a sweat. Staff goes the extra mile to make your stay unforgetable. Would come again.
