“"top of the pops"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Returned 13th May 2013, after a 12 night stay, this was our 5th holiday at this brilliant hotel , it still ticks all the boxes, the returning customers every year are the best advertisement to promote this hotel , the courteous & friendly staff in all areas, the animation team , this time in my opinion the girls waitresses in the bar area need an extra pat on the back although very busy & hard working they seemed to express a more personal friendly approach to the customers , the services, food quality ,variety & presentation is still second to none ,well done again.++++++++++++

Room Tip: request a room with a sea /pool veiw.

I went with a friend and we had a great stay. We had a comfortable room with a double bed each and a nice clean bathroom.
The staff on arrival were very helpful, and continued to be friendly throughout our stay.
The pool area was lovely and spacious, we didn't struggle to find a sunbed. We jumped on a bus to Coral Bay for a few days at a gorgeous beach - I would highly recommend this as the beach at the hotel isn't great at all.
The restaurant was fine, exactly what you expect of an All Inclusive accommodation. We didn't ever have to wait for a table and the food was perfectly adequate.
The entertainment team made a real effort to get you involved (even when you didn't want to!) but were friendly enough.
All in all, a very good stay and excellent value for money - we booked a few days before for a bit of a bargain.

Excellent food with good presentation and selection also the staff are very helpful and pleasant at all times. this was our second visit and won't be our last

Our very first trip to Cyprus and we were travelling at the time when there was a lot of doom & gloom in the country.People who got to know we were going on holiday there laughed & wished us all the very best but WE HAD THE LAST LAUGH!
Fantastic sea side town,Lovely & friendly people,awesome food & last but not the least...Amazing hotel.
The Hotel
If you are looking for a reasonable family friendly hotel..this is it!!! It certainly is not for someone who is looking for a luxurious or a romantic getaway or someone looking for a hotel by a sandy beach.
Good Bits
1) Animation Team -Simply the best,infact one of the best I've ever seen.They not only entertained us during the day but also at night.Three cheers to them .My rating 5/5 for them.The hotel is very lucky to have them on board.
2)Entertainment. - Superb! During the day the entertainment team kept the children & adults entertained and at night they had fantastic shows including Grease & Mamma Mia. My rating 4/5
3)Swimming Pools - Indoor & Outdoor - We predominantly used the indoor pool as it was slightly chilly outdoors.Jacuzzi indoors is simply fab!!Kids pool is awesome but we used it only a couple of times as it was chilly.Rating 3.5/5
4) Food & Drinks. - Simply yummylicious.Everyday there was quiet a spread.Varied menu catering to all etarians! For the health conscious who worry about all inclusive & gaining weight,trust me you don't have to worry on this one here.There's lots to choose from.Especially loved the sea food and the Mediterranean variety.The food hall itself big & spacious ,plenty of seating both indoor and outdoor.Variety of cocktails,mocktails & drinks.My rating 5/5
5) Kids Club- Parents-worry not!!My kiddo loved the club,the girls from the entertainment team run it & they have variety of activities to keep the lil' ones entertained. I know it's a bit harsh for me to write but it was 2 hours of bliss everyday from 3-5 pm ,so do make use of it .
6)Hotel staff- Very friendly , helpful.We had a smooth check in & check out .My rating 5/5
7)Room - Clean ,comfortable beds ,reasonable wardrobe & luggage space .Very basic.Cleaned everyday.My rating 3/5

Now ..I would'nt call it the bad bits but bits with room for improvement .

1) Steam Room- Unusable,mould on the seats & no steam at all,don't go with the hopes of using one ,it's just for namesake on the hotel website.
2) Night Entertainment- Though the shows were good ,they would start rather late. The show which is meant to start at 10 would start at 10.30 and hence finish late ,this was inconvenient especially for people like us travelling with kids.The bingo before the shows would go on and on and on ..perhaps if the management could look into the timings & look at an early start.
3) Rooms -No room safe!!! Had to pay around 20 euros for the week.Now..this is something very basic which is inclusive in the rate of a 3-4 star hotel which Louis Phaethon is,was disappointed with that & no tea /coffee making facility-something very basic expected of a 3-4 star hotel.
4) No free wi Fii- Again this is something very basic ,yes if it's not availaible in the rooms at least areas like hotel lobby it should be free.
5) All inclusive wrist bands- Sharp edges ,my little one's face got cut ,the hotel could do with a better quality of bands.

Tips

1) Do take pool towels,not enough supply in the hotel.
2) Day excursions- much cheaper ( half the price) if you get it from a local travel agent & you can haggle.
3) Ladies- do pack in evening wear & dont feel shy to make an effort..everyone's dressed to the nines!
4) Sea view rooms much better,you'll have to pay a little extra but totally worth it,higher floors are better.
5) If you have a return flight at night ,paying a little and opting for late checkout is again totally worth it.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday in this lovely hotel.You wouldn't regret it .A big thank you to everyone at Louis Phaethon for a wonderful stay in your amazing hotel.

Dear guest,

Let us express our gratitude that you found some time to write valuable feedback about your stay at the Louis Phaethon Beach.

We are pleased that our hotel lives up to its name as a family oriented hotel, as you note it being well equipped to cater for guests of all ages. It is a delight to hear that our animation team had a huge impact on your overall experience at our hotel, as they were keeping you entertained throughout the day. We are proud of our chefs who earned your top marks for their varied delicacies, which were indulging you every day, and also of our staff, who were friendly and helpful, and did their best to ensure you had a wonderful holiday. We are sorry to hear about the steam room, but rest assured we will follow up this immidiately. Regarding the safe and Wi-Fi, please understand our decision not to include them within room rate, as not all of our guests are using these services, and by doing so we make the holiday more affordable. As for wrist bands and evening entertainment hours we appreciate your remarks, and will certainly take them into consideration for future improvement.

It fills us with joy, that you had a wonderful stay at the Louis Phaethon Beach, and we hope to welcome you again at our property.

Travelled with my husband, our baby and my parents. Very noisey. No quiet areas around the pool, however this is a family hotel. Rooms small, but very clean. Our stay with our baby went well, thanks to the hotel. Microwave to heat baby food available in the main restaurant. Kettle and steriliser in room. Staff attentitive and helpful. Food nice. Main restaurant reminded us a bit of a motorway transport cafe as large, and food not displayed as nice as other all inclusive hotels we've been to. We loved the water slides! The lifeguards are very professional, well done! We did not partake in any activities as just wanted to chill, but there's plenty on offer if you prefer to be busy. Overall good hotel, you can eat and drink all day if you wish. The biggest let down for us was the British guests. Typical 'Brits aboard'. Drunk, tattoos, burnt, overweight, greedy people! Lots of swearing, we also heard a big argument. Embarrassing. Not the hotels fault of course. We can see why the security guards are essential!

i have just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel, my first experience of all inclusive and no faults. The food was lovely with plenty of choice, the pools were fabulous and the water slides were fun. there were numerous children in our party and they loved the childrens pool and kids club. the room was lovely and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. As i was only on a short trip for a friends wedding i only left the hotel for the hen party and wedding but the bus into paphos centre was only 1 euro and only 5 minute ride. the hotel is also opposite the water park (10 minute walk) which looked really good but i didnt get chance to go.

We have recently returned from Cyprus stayng at the Louis Phaeton Hotel. It is our first all inclusive holiday and my husband and I couldn't fault it. Our room was excellent. On the 3rd floor with sea and pool terrace views. The food was 1st class, and everywhere was spotless. The staff were all very friendly, polite and efficient. The animation team were absolutly brilliant. They worked so hard both during the day when they were organising games and rehearsing for the shows at night. We were really impressed with all the shows, Chicago, Grease, Lord of the Dance and Lion King.
Thanks to Sally for organising a birthday surprise in the restaurant. A cake and champagne, flowers and balloons,

Well done everyone.

We hope to be back in November.
