“Holiday without the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed a 10 night stay at this hotel. It should be a five star not four. The room with a sea view was spotless and spacious and the maids came in twice a day. We were on B&B and didn't eat at the hotel apart from breakfast. The choice at breakfast was plentiful which meant we weren't hungry until the evening.
The whole of the hotel including grounds and pools were very clean and the sun bed allocation on arrival was a plus. I used the spa on one occasion which was heaven.
We would return.

Room Tip: Sea view 2nd floor

We have just returned from a week at this fabulous hotel !! From the moment we arrived to when we left we could not wish for better service. All the staff without exemption exceeded our expectations, they are all so friendly and could not do enough for you. The rooms are modern and cheering with very comfortable bed and linen. We think a sea view is a must, the view and the stunning sunsets are exceptional. The food in all restaurants is varied and of exceptional quality particularly the Garibaldi Italian is to die for!! We would like to say a big thank you to Philippa on Guest Relations for all the attention she gave us over the week she is so cheerful all the time and nothing is a problem, she is a "Good OldYorkshire Girl". We will certainly be returning in the future. Just keep up the good work everybody.

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Alexander the Great Hotel. From the time we arrived to (very reluctantly) leaving we couldn't have hoped for a better stay in Paphos.
Centrally located on the sea front with easy walking to the harbour or the other end - (The Croccodile Bar is certainly worth a few visits some five mins away)
We had a sea view which is so worthwhile paying a little bit more just to experience the sunsets over Paphos Castle and the lovely sea.
The room was spotless, very large with a huge comfortable bed and satellite tv. Bathroom had a 'rainfall' shower and was decorated brilliantly.
We were staying half board with both breakfast and dinner faultless with hot fresh food. Worthwhile treating yourself to the Garibaldi Italian restaurant one night.
Finally the staff (all of them) were so friendly polite and smiling, always there to assist in any way. The General Manager was frequently around and again very approachable who explained to me how much investment had be made on the hotel recently but also how proud he was of his staff. I totally agree with him on that!
It goes without saying we will be returning to the Alexander the Great.

My wife and myself have enjoyed numerous stays at the Alexander. It has always been a superior hotel and the recent makeover has added to this. From the warm welcome on arrival to the comfortable rooms,especially the beds and linen, everything is a class act. We stay on the half board tariff, breakfast is varied and excellent quality, dinner in the Roxanne restaurant,although a buffet is again first class.the sun lounger allocation system is legendary and saves a lot of problems, why is it not emulated ?
Try a holiday at the Alexander, you will not be dissappointed.

Just had a week at the Alexander the Great hotel. Second visit after their refurbishments which are very well designed. No chance of slipping into the pool accidentally as it is raised and is very sensibly designed. Still an excellent holiday hotel. This hotel is made by its little extras, superb personal service makes you feel very welcome. The staff are really friendly and cannot do enough for you.
Where else do you get sun beds reserved for you for your stay plus your own sun bed towels . At dinner you get a glass of wine, beer, or soft drink and water. The management offer a welcome reception with refreshments. Wonderful entertainment staff who provide a full programme of activities if you want, the pool aqua aerobics was really popular.
Plus it is only 10 minutes walk along the lovely promenade to Paphos harbour.
All in all this is the best holiday hotel we have strayed in. I really recommend it.
This is the only hotel we will stay in if we go to Paphos again.

Room Tip: Even the non sea view rooms are good

Just returned from a great week at this first class hotel. The hotel is immaculate and the staff are delightful. Everyone fell over backwards to help. A major plus is the sun bed allocation system. This guarantees two sun beds, an umbrella, a chair and small table. This attendant takes you around to show what's available. You choose your spot and have the same beds through the holiday. It was great to be able to go out for the morning and come back without worrying whether a bed will be available. One day all holiday hotels will adopt this system! The hotel is conveniently located with a short walk around to the shops and harbour.
The room was comfortable, fresh and bright. However, the balcony was rather restricted.. We had a full sea and pool view but on the west wing of the building there is no view of the harbour. The bed was vast, towels etc. were of high quality.
The pool was superb, around 25m in length great for a proper swim. However it was not heated and a bit nippy to get into but one length of swim was enough to become comfortable.
Dining and breakfast were excellent with enough variety to meet most tastes. Dinner gave a variety of theme nights with interesting dishes.
Kato Paphos was good with an excellent, frequent bus service. Many interesting archeological sights are nearby. Buses stop outside the hotel and run every 10 minutes.
All in all a great holiday in a superb hotel which fully deserves it's reputation.
This was our first visit to Cyprus and the experience couldn't.t have been better.

Room Tip: It would be a disappointment not to experience the front sea views. A high floor ( three story only...
