“Fantastic Resort, Fantastic Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Just back from a fantastic 2 week holiday at the Aliathon. Myself, my husband and 3 year old daughter had the best holiday ever! The resort has everything you need for an excellent family holiday. The pools, rooms and restaurant are first class. The staff in all areas of the village are exceptional. Our favourites were 'Lee' and 'Lois' from the entertainment staff. Lee is very talented at what he does. He always made us laugh through the day till late at night!! I don't understand the negative comments about adult entertainment as the kids shows finished about half 10pm and the adults gameshows started then, so it was a great mix for kids and adults. We had no complaints, in fact we got excited each night to see what the show was at half 9!! (Favourites were gypsy/essex wedding and Richard Park singing on his own) The full entertainment team was brilliant. Don't know where they get there energy from! We all loved the party dances.
The food was amazing always something different and varied to eat and I liked how 'Gary' the chef went round checking everyone was happy with the food.
We loved the poolside entertainment with fab music, quizzes, and the party dances in the pool. 'George' at the poolside bar gave us a great laugh and we learned him some scottish phrases!!
Our daughter went to the 3-5 year old kids clubs and I found them very professional with their procedures of checking kids in and out very thorough. (I'm a childminder so a bit fussy there!) She loved it and learned new things each time she went, so we were very happy that she was safe and secure and having fun. At kids club 'Steve' was brilliant and our daughter spoke highly of him during the holiday. He would even chat to us outwith his working hours which I thought went above and beyond his job!!
It was our daughter's birthday when we were there and we very much appreciated the lovely birthday cake and card delivered to our room, which made her birthday extra special. It was also lovely they announced happy birthday at the pool too.
We were impressed and thought it was a nice touch with the farewell meeting, with a drink and chat about the holiday. It was refreshing to see the Aliathon welcome feedback both positive and negative at the meeting.
We were so sad to leave and didn't want to come home. We met so many lovely people. The staff are a credit to the Aliathon and the resort is beautiful. We will definately be returning, and I'm glad we found this holiday resort.

excellent choice real value for money...excellent swimming pool wonderfull environment for kids and lots of staff to do ...

Very logical prices for food etc the only detail we didnt like was the dinner. Not enough variety for choosing what you like. Breakfast though was all the money. really enjoy it ...cant wait to visit the place again with my family.

Room Tip: go close to the big swimming pool, inside the fishing village

Dear John,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review on our trip advisor page and for choosing to stay at our Holiday Village Aliathon this summer.

We are so pleased to read what a great time you had with us and especially because of the breakfast buffet. Regarding the evening buffet we are saddened to read the variety did not meet your expectations. We decide the food options from our guests feedback and usually we receive very good feedback concerning this, however be assured we will pass yours on to the relevant management in order to discuss.

We are so happy to read that you can not wait to return to stay at the Aliathon Holiday Village as we look forward to welcoming you back very much!

Myself my new husband and 3 kids aged 4, 12 and 16 and my sister and her husband have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Aliathon. It is a beautiful complex sparkling clean, amazing food, fantastic friendly staff. I had my wedding there and would not change a thing about it everyone was so kind and helpful to make it a beautiful memorable day. I stayed in a 2 bed appartment in the fishing village and my sister stayed at the Aegean complex we have no complaints about either section although as a family i was glad we were in the fishing village and as a couple my sisters part was quieter therefore perfect for a couple. There are so many different pools to suit different ages we tried them all out and my sister particularly liked the adult pool and bar. The only minor complaint I had was about the evening adult entertainement the first choice reps were absolutely amazing with the kids and work so hard from morning till noon my 4 year old especially loved Steve and the kids club and it is not their fault but my the time the kids mini disco is over the adults could really do with a bit of entertainment suited to them rather than the same old reps singing the same old kind of songs perhaps the hotel should consider some outside entertainers a couple of times a week as we ended up a lot of the time just going back to our room to play games rther than sitting through the same old entertainment. Even with that complaint i would still love to return to Aliathon one day as the pros definately outweighed the cons. The all inclusive is supposed to stop at midday but we were allowed to hold onto our wristbands and get any food or drink we needed up till we left and whilst we had to check out of our room there were showers and changing facilities available. With regards to the wedding we had our reception at the italian restaurant in the hotel and whilst we paid extra for it they made it amazing for us the food was fantastic. We did not use the first choice photographer as it was so expensive for such a little amount of pictures so we used a local photographer who i can not recommend highly enough she was so professional, friendly and we have some beautiful photos to treasure forever thanks to her and for half the price first choice wanted her name is Alexandra Hinton of www.sunnybubble.com. The Aliathon really was an amazing place and anyone who is booked to go are lucky people enjoy

We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much we returned this year.A very nice and well maintained setting.However we had a few frustrations!,
Since last year the dinning hall has halved in size resulting in difficulty finding tables at peak breakfast and Dinner periods.
The entertainment was very poor in the evenings and the overall quality of food we felt was not as good.On our last visit for lunch before departing,the fish sticks were served still frozen on the inside.
I would however still recommend this resort although it is very expensive

Room Tip: We had a superior 1 bed apartment which was more than adequate for 2 adults and a child.On both visi...

Dear FireInspector,

Firstly we would like to thank you for your kind loyalty towards our Holiday Village Aliathon. It is one of our main goals here to insure our guests receive such a good experience that they want to return to stay with us.

We are pleased that you feel we are still a very nice and well maintained holiday village; however we are saddened to read that your second visit to our holiday village did not meet your expectations from your first visit.

Regarding the Pantheon Restaurant, we renovated this area during last winter in order to provide a new modern feel to our dinning experience and also to encourage our guests to dine outside in the Cyprus sun. Concerning not finding a table did you ask a member of staff for help to find a table? As our team are more than willing to assist you with anything you may need.

Concerning the entertainment of an evening please be assured we will pass your feedback onto the relevant management in order to discuss any improvements necessary.

With regards to the fish sticks did you present this to a member of staff? We would like to assure you that all of the food is checked before being served onto the buffet so we are surprised to read that this happened. Please be assured that the Executive Chef has been informed in order to prevent this from occurring again.

We hope that overall you had an enjoyable stay with us and we hope to welcome you back in order to restore your faith in our Holiday Village Aliathon.

Always at your disposal,

Georgina Squires

Just came back from my familys 4th stay at Aliathon
Try as hard as I could I can't find any faults
The staff are friendly , food is good and varied
It would matter if you're 2 or 92 you'd enjoy you're stay
Special mention to Lee and the entertainment team , the hardest working young people I've ever seen
Working long hours in high temperatures but with a constant smile on their faces
Will definately go back for a 5th time

Room Tip: Fishing village is my favourite place to stay

Just arrived back from a amazing holiday at the Aliathon village. All the staff are so friendly & really make a effort to make your holiday special. The hotel is immaculate & being 3 girls on our own we really felt safe there. We went all inclusive & loved the food, especially the Greek & Mexican a la carte restaurants, if you do go here you must try them, you won't be disappointed. We had a deluxe apartment in the fishing village which was lovely and a nice view of the pool from our balcony. If i go again i would definitely be requesting the same room, perfect location aswel as lovey views. We didn't really watch the entertainment cause we herd it was mainly for children so we drank at the main bar above the restaurant. Vladan was a great bar man & really looked after everyone. The hotel is mainly for familys but we still loved it and there is plenty to do outside of the hotel aswel if you do fancy a night out. There really isn't a bad thing to say about this hotel & we had no problems what so ever, would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Room Tip: Would recommend room 1223 in the fishing village :)

Returned home today after a weeks holiday, with my husband and boys aged 11 & 12. Arrived at the holiday village at 11pm, was taken to our room by one of the friendly porters who work there.
On entering our room in the AEGEAN COMPLEX, my heart sank as it was no way near what we expected or seen advertised :( THE ROOM WAS VERY GRUBBY, DATED AND IN DESPERATE NEED OF MODERNISATION. . The toilet was leaking around the base and the bath was very stained with thick rust around the plug hole. The kitchen area was unwelcoming with filthy grout between the tiles and work tops as was all the floor tiles throughout the room. Being late at night and our boys very tired, we decided to wait until the morning to speak to our rep which we did so first thing. The reps then passed our complaint on to the hotels guest relations manager Georgie. We explained that we wasn't happy with the standard of the room given the money we paid to stay there. Georgie told us she would get back to us lunchtime after she sorted out what other rooms were available. By 2.30 we still hadn't heard any thing so went back to reception as we wanted to get settled and unpack. We were told to things were being sorted and they would contact us later in the day. 5.30pm we were finally contacted, Georgie told us that there were no other rooms in the Aegean complex available, however the family next door to us wanted to move to the fishing village area so it was possible we could have their room, but they had until 7.30 pm to decide, and we wouldn't be able to move until Monday due to housekeeping not working Sundays! We were also shown a room in the fishing village which was very clean, modern and spacious. Having already wasted our first days holiday back and forth trying to get a clean room to enjoy our holiday we decided to take the room in the fishing village.... BUT HAD TO PAY A EXTRA 150€ which apparently was doing us a favour as that was with discount!! Doing us a favour would of been a clean decent room to start with!! We should not have to have paid anymore to have a nice room in the first place!!

However... GOOD POINTS once we moved, rest of complex very clean, lovely gardens and excellent swimming pools for all ages. Good day and evening entertainment for adults and kids. Food nice, sometimes a little luke warm but generally ok and varied.
Bar staff very friendly especially VLADEN who was great with all the customers especially the kids.
Housekeeping staff very friendly and helpful, kept fishing village rooms spotless.


Had we of not had the battle of getting a decent room at the beginning, we would most definitely returned, however this did dampen our holiday so for this reason won't be returning again.

MY ADVICE WOULD BE IF YOUR PLANNING ON STAYING HERE BOOK THE FISHING VILLAGE!!
Although I was also told by Georgie that half of the rooms in the AEGEAN complex were updated last winter and this winter the other half will be.. Which proves our point..

Stayed July 2013
