“a happy return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

we have just arrived back home from our third visit to this hotel. the last visit was three years ago. since then quite a lot of upgrading has taken place which has been very well done. you can now have your shower whilst looking out towards the harbour of paphos. the one thing that is the same as always is the food the staff and the ambiance of the hotel all are excellent. we walked in the hotel and felt completely at home. the animation team are very enthusiastic, cheerful and work exrtemely hard. different theme nights in the resteraunt makes for gourmet food experiences of a high class.hotel is just a few minutes walk from the harbour, shops and cafes. designated sunbed allocation for the duration of your stay works really well, i want that job. the hotel manager is visible often looking around making sure things are kept to a high standard, it is definately our favourite hotel on cyprus and we have stayed in several

Room Tip: we had a second floor room, good for views of the sea and harbour, a sea view room is worth the extr...

Stayed alone for 11 days, had wonderful relaxing holiday in the sun. Such a nice and kind personnel especially in the dining room with high professional skills.

You should get sea side room. View from there is worth to pay more!!

Alexander The Great Hotel is a fantastic option for a Paphos stay. It's just a few minutes' stroll along the promenade to the town/harbour, and yet completely peaceful and relaxing - perfect!
The sea-view rooms are well worth the supplement, as the vista is incredible - the sunsets were sublime from the balcony.
The staff were excellent, from check-in to room-service to the restaurant waiters and waitresses, and the whole ambience is relaxed yet professional.
I thoroughly recommend Alexander The Great, and can't wait to return.

We wanted an early winter break after a stressful time,Cyprus seemed a good option with hopefully warm weather.
The Alexander the Great came highly recommended
It met all our expectations bar one (the lack of a seaview)BUT the general environment,the organised system of having a reserved sunbed for the week,a great variety of delicious food (and we don't eat meat)and thoughtful and attentive staff.
We also had the bonus of a week of warm and dry weather
Would certainly support the recommendation we were given

My wife and I returned to this hotel, for the 8th time, since 1994. We were particularly interested to see how the hotel had improved and been updated, following a major and costly refurbishment done in 2012/13. We were not disappointed. The bedrooms are now superb and we had a great view, on the top 3rd floor, overlooking the pool, beach and sea. This hotel is in a terrific location and we enjoyed our daily walk to Paphos fort and back. We were particularly impressed with the food standard which had definately improved. Also, the staff are still as polite, warm and friendly as ever. 40% of customers tp the hotel are "repeats" - which says it all. Cyprus is a lovely island and this hotel is outstanding. We will certainly return again in 2015!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 3rd floor, with full sea view - worth paying extra for this. Take flights to...
