...if you want a holiday that is value for money, relaxing, entertaining and comfortable, in clean surroundings, with attentive and pleasant staff looking after your every need and making sure you are well fed!!

You might also be looking to sleep well, in clean rooms with free air-con - if so this is also the place for you. Mind you, I doubt you will spend very long in your room, as you will probably be lounging in the sun, or in the pool, enjoying a range of poolside activities and games for all ages, thrilling on the waterslides (again for all ages) or just chilling out to the DJ sounds round the pool. We had no problems getting sunbeds wherever we wanted at anytime of the day - you definately won't need to be up at the crack of dawn and reserve them - you can relax and have your breakfast!! There are choices of sunbeds aound the pools or quieter grassed areas beside the sea and among palm trees.

The animation team are very professional and there is a happy balance between motivating people to join in, without forcing or embarrassing them into it. There are activites, games and entertainment available for people of all ages during the day and in the evening entertainment.

We never had to queue or wait - either at check-in, at the bar, for a restaurant table, or for a drink to be served. Tables were cleared promptly whether in the restaurant or around the sun loungers.

The hotel provides a good range of plentiful food available all day long, although it generally caters for British tastes there are some greek dishes at most servings and we were able to try something new each day.

The spa, including sauna, steam rooms, massage room, jacuzzi and indoor pool were a lovely bonus.

We also discovered that the hotel offers free bikes for use (pay a deposit which you get back on return), we do love our bike rides. Although the free bike hire was a real bonus, the condition of the bikes was appalling in fact I don't think they had been maintained at all - a pedal snapped off one I tried for size, my husband had to pump the tyres up before we left and neither of us dared change gear in case we got stranded. That said, we did manage to cycle along to Paphos (during a cloudier day) which made a lovely change - other transport was available too if we'd wanted it of course!

Other tips - You pay 3 euros per day for a safe if you want one (you don't have to spend another penny apart from that though). You need your own towels for the pool. You don't need adaptor plugs as they have 3-pin sockets.

This hotel provides great value for money and is definately one I'd return to.

Room Tip: Ask for pool side.

I have just arrived back( 25th sept) for 10 nights at the phatheon.
I wasnt really sure what to expect when i booked this holiday as i had read mixed reviews but i was really pleased on arrival. Staff very friendly and really cant do enough for you. They arrived with luggage trolleys and took our cases to our room. The restaurant and bar staff really dont get enough praise. They work so hard all day and all night and still always manage a smile and a friendly manner even though it was 37 degrees on some days.
The food was lovely. I am usually really fussy and have stayed in 5* hotels but the food has never been as good anywhere else. I travelled with my two children and partner and there was always something on the menu for all of us to enjoy. The staff were constantly wiping down and putting out fresh food, it really was impressive so i'm not sure how people have said the food i cold coz its not.
The bar areas were always peaceful and always waited on habd and foot, we didnt want for nothing. e met some truely lovely preople on this holiday and my over all stay was absolutely brilliant.
My 9 year old joined in with the animation team on lots of different activities and always loved getting his diploma in the evening on stage. They were all friendly and had a good relationship with eachother and the kids. My partner also had to get on stage for his certificate...LOL¬!!
The things i will say need a little improvement is the evening entertainment. Its down in chariots nightclub. Its so dark in there its almost uncomfortable. When the Bingo comes on its nice to see who is actually sitting in there and its wayyyy too loud. They just need to turn the microphones down along with the music a little as it sometimes drove me so mad id rather sit in reception playing cards. The animation team did however make a huge effort to come along and sit with u at the side of the pool and get to know us all and were always funny...Dido did a great job with the Bingo..(only coz i won on our second night).
I wasnt too impressed with our room. We had a tendancy to attract some unwanted ants which got me down a little bit but the staff were only too happy to help. The rooms are small but u only sleep in them.
The lifeguards are always freindly and u could tell one in particular really enjoyed the children. Zumba looked good but i didnt join in as its way too public, i didnt like the idea of dancing infront of everyone at the hotel so would probably get more people up doing it if it was a little out the way.
Overall i had an amazing time. Its a gorgeous country, Lovely hotel and would definately recommend and i already want to go back for next year.
Everybody keep up the good work as you should all be really proud.
Love Ian, J-lo and Brad pit and Brooke xx

Just returned from our third visit to The Phaethon after another fantastic holiday there. Many Thanks to all The Animation Team and every one of The Staff who give 100% to make that special holiday for you. We cannot fault anything, the entertainment, the food, the pool areas, and the all inclusive services are the best on the Island. Well done to everyone and we will see you again in June 2012 - Dave & Ann.

Hotel,very clean hotel has just had a refit.
Room, Smart but a bit small,beds very hard,wardrobe not deep enough,hanging clothes
get caught up when shutting doors,no kettle in rooms were told by reception that due to
a fire all kettles had been removed,strange 2 other Louis hotels in the same road still
have kettles in rooms,no fridge in room were told you can hire them,room safe in room very expensive,cost me 42 euros for 2 weeks a rip off I have paid a lot less in 5 star hotels.
We noticed a mark on a pillow looked like blood on removing pillow case found that the pillows
were rotten and filthy,asked for them to be replaced and they were we were given 3 new ones,
Restaurant, Good very clean good sellection of food,downside if you are there for more than 1 week the menu repeats itself,we ate outside at it was so hot in the restaurant the only downside to this was smokers near you,they need to have a seperate area for smokers
also they are very slow at setting tables,twice I did my own,
Pool Area,very good plenty of sun beds tip put your towels out early as not all sunbeds have
unbrellas,2 large pools,one with 3 massive slides.There is a snack bar by the pool self service
plenty of bits for the kids and plenty of drinks also a chinese food bar open lunch times,
I did find it better to go to the main restaurant for all meals,
Entetainment,by the pool good at nights it is in the night club which is small very hot
and the sound system is very bad,had to leave twice due to this,
Location,well away from resort centre,no shops or bars nearby,you can get a bus outside
the hotel to the resort fare only 1 euro per person,
if you want to do trips its cheaper to go to an independant firm there are some about 10minutes walk away from the hotel,
We did not fly home until late evening as we had to be out of our room by mid-day I asked
about keeping the room on,theysaid I could keep it on for another 6 hours for 60 euros.
Also although this is an all inclusive hotel you have to buy bottled water a 2 euros a go,get
a bottle and you can refill it in the restaurant of at the poolside snack bar.
I told them were having a laugh,then they said I could have a room for 30 minutes at 5,30
for free,thats all I needed to gat changed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room 2nd or 3rd floor,sea view rooms went in one not very nice

We are very happy that your overall stay with us was enjoyable and that you liked the quality of the food on offer, the cleanliness, the daily entertainment and our friendly service.

We confirm that where possible we try to avoid kettles in room for health and safety reasons related to fire hazards.
As for the room safe. it is a policy followed by many hotels in our area. Regarding the pillows, we are sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for mentioning this issue to us. It had given the opportunity to check our pillows again and remove the very small minority that were stained.

The rest of your comments have also been considered for our improvement.

Thank you once again for your comments and we hope to see you again.
