“One word! Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This was our 2nd time at the hotel but we visited this time with friends so we were a party of 7.(4adults 3teenagers) As stated in previous reviews the refurbishments made during the winter have vastly improved the rooms/ pool/ bars etc. what makes a holiday special though is the professionalism of the staff. The entertainment team kanika all stars lead by Lucy were amazing, Warren, Ollie, Beth, Rhianna made our holiday so much fun throughout the day by organising sporting activities then during the evening they would produce some outstanding shows. Thank you all for making our holiday a memory that we will never forget. If you are like me and and you research trip adviser for helping you to choose a hotel look no further than ATG. You will get a well run, clean, perfect location 4 star hotel at a reasonable price. I would also like to mention Amanda who serves drinks around the pool with lots of enthusiasm and patients.The Japanese restaurant under the guidance of raj was excellent. Don't miss the Michael Buble tribute act on a Monday night. Simon Cowell take note. ! The only negative point I would add would be the view from the side sea view rooms 110,112,114 these are charged at a supplement to standard rooms but really only book if you require a balcony as the view is mostly of the car park, However with this in mind we will of course be returning in the future and hope warren/ ollie and the girls are still there.

We stayed at the ATG for 11 nights as a family ( teenager and grandmother).. We had a fabulous time. The Entertainment team KANIKA all stars made our holiday so much fun. It if wasn't for them we would have been bored night and day. Great activities for all ages to join during the day and super and fun singing and dancing in the evening. The Jersey boys night was the best and professional. Wow... Thanks to Lucy, Ollie, Warren, Beth and of course the little superstar Rhianna (go Rhianna go!!!). The Boy George impersonator which wasn't part of this team was poor and uncomfortable to watch for a family...
The hotel was great clean, up to date, and facilities were very good. The room was nicely appointed, comfy beds, cleaned each day to high standard.
The food was okay, would not say fantastic, but we only had breakfast and lunch at the hotel. We felt it had a limited choice for children ESP lunch...
The sun bed allocation was good as no need to fight for bed early.. Pool was fab and clean and also indoor pool..
The shop across the road and chemist were really useful and very friendly and helpful..always good on holiday....all in all a really nice holiday and hotel where the staff were so friendly.. We would return ESP in the entertainment team were still all there. Thanks

This was our second visit to the hotel, our last visit was in 2009. We were attracted by the refurbishment, and on the whole we were impressed.

We felt that the hotel had lost a little of it's previous charm, by having all of the evening buffet meals indoors. On our last visit we were able to eat outside, under the stars, listening to the waves, very romantic.

The food was not always as hot as it could have been, and not having a proper barbecue available in a Greek hotel was disappointing. The 'Greek' restaurant was also poor, and together these contributed to a feeling that the hotel had lost it's 'Greek'ness.

Meal times also seemed to be rushed and geared to having everything over and done with in order to watch the entertainment.

Fortunately we were very impressed by the Kanika All Stars - Lucy, Beth, Warren, Ollie and Rihanna. The shows they put on were very enjoyable, particularly the Jersey Boys, and was far preferable to the 'visiting' entertainment, with the exception of the BLF show. All this after a full list of daytime activities, all carried out with enthusiasm and fun - we particularly enjoyed the Aqua Aerobics! The team were the heartbeat of the hotel, and their enthusiasm was infectious.

All together an enjoyable and relaxing stay, and would recommend the hotel, and make sure you get involved with what is going on.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon from 27th June for 2 weeks in a superior sea view room. Everything about this hotel is faultless. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed and all the recent renovations have been done to very a very high standard. I extensively researched all the best hotels in Paphos and we were absolutely delighted with the choice we made by booking here.

As honeymooners we were given a few little extras which we really appreciated. Sparkling wine, balloons, Cypriot Delights and a card were received with gratitude. We had a few little maintenance issues with the room which were taken care of immediately. All staff were friendly and cheerful at all times and seemed to enjoy making your holiday special. As said before, the sunbed allocation is marvellous adding to the relaxed atmosphere at this wonderful hotel.

The entertainment team worked tirelessly throughout the day and evening. Daytime activities were varied and the evening shows of a high standard for what we saw. They were always happy and asked you to join in but never pushed anything on you, excellent team. The pools were all lovely and relaxing. We especially enjoyed the swim up bar with it's wonderful cocktails all at very reasonable prices for a hotel of this calibre..

We were half board and thought the food was excellent. Different theme every night which included aqw large variety of dishes, the standard of which was very high. You could not go hungry here unless you were a very fussy eater. The food was always hot and delicious. No complaints here! Breakfast was also excellent and the occasional lunch we took was of the same high standard.

We could not fault this hotel in ANY way. Everything exceeded our high expectations. It is the best hotel we have stayed in and we are definitely booking 2 weeks again next year. Don't listen to the 'average reviews.' This hotel is anything but! Book with confidence, you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to return. Well done to everyone at The Alexander for creating the perfect holiday.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are excellent.

I stayed here from 14th - 21st July with my husband and Son and Daughter In Law, what can I say this Hotel is Beautiful, A lot of Hotels we have stayed in have nearly got it right but this Hotel has,the sun bed allocation is genius,the rooms are gorgeous,the food is amazing and the staff fantastic. I don't know why this Hotel is not a five star,on saying that I hope it stays four star because the drinks and food are very affordable for a Hotel like this and if the star rating went up then so would the food and drink prices.The pool and the swim up bar are amazing and the entertainment was very good for a Hotel we have been to some Hotel's where the entertainment was dire but what we saw in here was very good. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation, book a sea view room the view is spectacular.My Daughter In Law and I had a massage in the spa which was great, also across the road from the Hotel is a restaurant called the Atrium Garden which is like eating in a Garden with fairy lights and the food is great and very reasonable,we ate here twice,also turn left at the main entrance to the Hotel and walk about five minutes and cross the road and the Viva Cyprus restaurant is also very good with a dessert trolley to die for, this was first time we had been to Cyprus but it wont be the last.

Room Tip: Has to be a sea view.............

Just back yesterday from 10 days stay at this lovely hotel.
I felt compelled to write and say a big THANK YOU to all staff for making our break for my 50th Birthday perfect.

Spotlessly cleaned in all locations by diligent staff who worked hard to ensure everyone had a nice holiday.

We booked and paid extra in advance for a full sea view with balcony overlooking the big pool it wonderful to sit out and watch sunrise /set and enjoy the lovely view of the blue pools with underwater lighting at night and beautiful sea just across the path.
It was before kids broke up for hols so bare that in mind with my trip review.

Entertainment
Something to keep all ages happy day and night.
By day The All Stars entertainment team politely went round the grounds 10 mins before asking if anyone wished to join an activity such as water polo, shuttle board, water aerobics, table tennis and lawn boules as a few examples you can join in or sit it out but we enjoyed joining in as we got to have a laugh with other guests and it was an icebreaker.

Little Monsters kidsclub looked fun and the same staff working hard all day also put on a quality entertainment show in the evenings that finishes around 11pm.

I wouldn't consider myself to be an extrovert ,I don't drink and my friend and I are not showy - quite the opposite normally but through feeling so welcome we could forget the 9-5 and be silly and join in with the happy vibe throughout the place its your holiday why not! all staff were smiley and helpful and seemed to sincerely want guests to have a good holiday, good night ,good meal, nice trip, relaxing day.
Nothing was too much trouble.
Well done to everyone thank you .
Highly recommended peaceful hotel
Good idea allocated sun loungers you choose, adult only pool to relax and cool off then large pool for swimming and splashing about with your mates / juniors another for tiny tots and another with a cover for shade all clean and inviting from 10am upto 5.pm.
