“Poor start to our holiday”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We recently took a holiday with Saga at this hotel. we arrived at 21.15 and the only food available to us was a place of cold meat and egg in our room. This was not stored in a fridge so I declined to eat it. The room smelt mousy. There was only a 500mls bottle of water left for two of us. I contacted reception about providing 2 extra pillows. A night porter bought the pillows and when I asked him about some more water he told us we had got pay for it despite being all inclusive. The only place we could take advantage of our all inclusive drinks was in the Saga lounge which was a very depressing room. The range of drinks was very limited. We could go through to the main bar to listen to the entertainment but we were looked down on by the waiters. We eventually contacted the rep to get moved to a sister hotel as there was no way I was going to spend 2 weeks in this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room it is quieter

We spent 4 days here and they were absolutely great; family-friendly staff - fabulous facilities - indoor and outdoor pool aren't to be missed, not to mention the spa... Also you just need to walk down the beach to enjoy the view of the sea and water if you are a swimmer.

we used the local bus to commute within the city with a Bus stop just opposite the Hotel.
in a nutshell a place to remember...

This hotel is the Best Ever...food excellent (and I mean excellent!) décor amazing, clean, spacious, and the staff could not do enough for us. Thank you Philippa, Guest Relations Manager (lovely lady), and Andreas Gen Manager for making our holiday such an enjoyable one. It was my 70th birthday break, and also celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, and our friends w. anniversary. We had a fab time, and thank you for the champagne, and the cake.
My cousin and two friends recommended this hotel, and had been wishing to visit for a long while.....we will be back....everything about this hotel is excellent...no other word for it.....and the allocated sunbeds....what a wonderful system !
See you all again .Best wishes for Christmas to everyone, and once again thank you x

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

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
