“Amazing honeymoon at the Aliathon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We have just returned from an amazing two weeks here. We were a party of 9 with 4 kids, and my partner and I got married out here. Although we didn't get married at the hotel, we saw a few weddings whilst there and they looked beautiful.
There is so much to do for children, this is why we chose this resort and we weren't dissatisfied, we hardly saw the older ones!
The food is out of this world, much better than the other 4 stars I've stayed in abroad, and there is so much selection.
The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and if they can accommodate your wish they will do it. Special mention to Katerina at reception and the bar staff Eleni and George.
Vlad who runs the main bar is a legend! He really gets everyone enjoying themselves and is an asset to the hotel!
Work and funds permitting we will be back in September!

this holiday is a haven for toddlers and young children . wouldn't recommend for couples on there own . our room was in the Aegean part of the complex and although very basic ? was very big and clean overlooking Aegean pool .the 2 pools in the Aegean part of the complex are quieter than the big pool in the fishing village . splash pool is excellent for the kids BUT around the pool side is very slippy and I saw several children whilst we were there slip over including my 5 yr old son who cracked His head really hard . and also a grown man fall as well .In my view this is 1 place I think they could improve by putting rubber slip mats into the ground . food was excellent always something for everyone .top marks in my opinion to the chefs and waitresses .entertainment is 1st choice run and the entertainment team do work really hard BUT it does fall a bit flat there . in my opinion rich Jones works his socks off and top marks to him . we did not use the kids club this time cause we were told it was first come first served and if you didn't get there early enough you would be turned away . and I didn't want to put my kids through the disappointment of being turned away . the beach is very shingley and stoney and the sea quite choppy . it's a nice walk down the coastal path to paphos harbour were u can shop .eat and and book boat trips . overall our holiday was very good and we would return and recommend .

I have just returned from this resort and really have to give it the thumbs up! What a fantastic place for families!

My family and I (children both under 5) went for a week and there was never a dull moment for them! It was our first family holiday abroad and I have to say the way the clubs are run are perfect for kids who normally complain of being bored (like my nearly 5 year old).

I HIGHLY recommend staying in the fishing village, we were so close to everything, the pirate ship and kids clubs and pool were just a few minutes away and the main restaurant was only a short walk ...

We used both the kids clubs and the creches and both children came away happy and with artwork they had done including a lovely little book my young 23mth old son had done which was lovely considering he has not yet been to nursery.

If you want some time to yourselves as a couple, we took the opportunity of booking the evening creche (7pm-10pm on tuesdays and wednesdays) and a chocolate party for 5 euros (7:30pm-9pm) the staff really look after the children and keep them safe.

The food is really good quality I never had a bad meal in the main restaurant here and there is also english favourites in case you have a little fussy eater who is not ready to try different foods. Our children enjoyed lots of the greek food and surprisingly ate really really well.

i really cannot fault anything here, the only thing I thought would be good would be a leaflet with the activities for the week, but you can check these on the boards surrounding the resort.

A special mention to the first choice ladies and gents and the Greek staff from the restaurants doing such an awesome job to keep everyone smiling on holiday, they work SO HARD and are really friendly so if you go and have a problem or need a question asking they are never far away. The resort is so clean and very pretty!

I think next time we go back would be for longer and would visit the surrounding areas of Paphos but as tired parents we enjoyed doing very little and enjoyed seeing our children smiling, making friends and having a great time as did we!

The resort is very nice and the kids can have a lot of fun in the kids pool, without you having to move a finger! Some of the rooms are completely outdated and smell really bad (no solution from the management about this issue), other rooms were completely updated, but smelt of paint and had no wardrobes... and a shower that flooded my room... After many "chats" with the management, I was moved to an old room with a bad smell... NO COMPENSATION and NO SORRY.. The food is terrible and the restaurant very dark, no place to enjoy the sun ! I would recommend to go there, if you enjoy being treated like a dog and if you don't mind eating bad food and drinking terrible wine in a cave...

We stayed at the Aliathon Holiday Village from 24th April - 4th May.

Check in was very quick and we were in our rooms within 5 minutes of arriving. On the last day you need to check out by midday. There is a luggage room in reception and a shower and towels next to the Aegean pool so that you can freshen up later if you have a late flight. In the luggage room there is a 'Swap Box' where people leave things they don't want to take home so it's worth having a look in there before you buy balls, lilos, beach toys to see if there is anything in there that would be useful to you.

We had a one bedroomed apartment in the Aegean side of the complex. The apartment was spacious, clean and well presented and looked out over well kept gardens. The apartment comprised a sitting/dining room with kitchen units at one end and a balcony at the other. There was a good sized bedroom and a well designed bathroom. There was ample storage and a good air conditioning system in each room.

The Aegean side of the complex has two swimming pools with bars and ample sun beds. These pools and those in the 'Fishing Village' were clean and well maintained.

We were on an 'All inclusive' package and ate all but two of our meals in the main restaurant. We found the food at every meal to be varied, of an excellent quality and beautifully presented - the best we have ever had in an all inclusive restaurant. Wine, beer and soft drinks are on tap in the restaurant for you to help yourself. The dining room was well set out and staff frequently changed and replenished dishes. There are inside and outside areas for eating and staff work hard to clear tables efficiently and keep all areas clean. There is a microwave if you find the food is not as hot as you would like and they will blend food for young children. You are given tokens to eat at the Mexican and Greek a la carte restaurants as part of the package and these are well worth trying as both served excellent food.

We used the local buses to get around. These cost 1 Euro per trip or 3 Euros for a day ticket.The walk into Paphos along the promenade takes about half an hour.The Paphos Archaeological Park and The Tombs of the Kings are well worth a visit and only cost 1.70 Euros per person.

We think the Aliathon offers something for everyone in that there are lots of activities on offer for children and a great Splash Pool but there is also an adult only pool and quieter pools on the Aegean side of the complex. Children are allowed in the main bar but after 8 p.m there is an adult only bar in the Fishing Village. The hotel is in a quiet area of Paphos but has easy access to Paphos town if you want bars/clubs. The beach is few minutes walk from the hotel. it is clean and sandy.

We had a great time and would recommend the Aliathon to families and couples.

We stayed in the fishing village in a deluxe 1 bed apartment. Although it is nicer than the older part I was slightly disappointed as was expecting better. Although the hotel is all inclusive - the rooms do come with some kitchen facilities. However, the kettle is tiny, there is no draining board where to put your washing up, we couldn't work out how to use the grill when our son wanted toast, & below the oven there are two drawers at toddler height with cutlery in & a sharp knife! Not a good idea!! The rooms are cleaned almost everyday, but the surfaces don't get cleaned & the floor only gets sweeped not mopped. There are four pools, but stayed mostly around the splash pool as our two year old loved it. A few down sides to it were there was not enough sunbeds/umbrellas around the splash pool & some days couldn't even get one hence people reserving them with towels in morning. The other down side to it is there is no bar nearby - you have to go to the one by the lighthouse which on some days had to queue for 10/15 mins as only 1 member of staff serving. All other pools each have bar available! The majority of the staff are friendly, but found that the bar staff could do with some customer service training!! On a good note the first choice reps are brilliant. They are always around to speak to or ask advice. We did not pre-book a kids club, but found we could do it when there which was good as wasn't sure our son would go, but they settled him in well. The food was okay - lots of choice, but never hot enough. We ate out a fair bit, but is expensive so be warned!

Room Tip: Rooms in fishing village are better located & more modern
