My partner and I recently went to a friends wedding at the Aliathon Holiday Village and it did not disappoint. We were delayed at the airport and did not arrive to the hotel until midnight and all the staff were very helpful. Our welcome packs and room keys were handed out on the coach as well as registration forms so all we had to do when we got there was hand the forms over and have our all inclusive wristbands fitted.
If you are going to Cyrprus then all inclusive is the way to go. Cyrpus is a very expensive place in fact lots of things were more expensive there than you would pay in the UK..
We stayed in the fishing village in a deluxe one bedroom apartment it was lovely. Where we were situated was quiet and we had a lovely veranda we could sit on and enjoy the hot nights. Although people keep saying they wanted to be upgraded to the fishing village I could not see reason why. I went for a walk around the old part which is called the Aegean Village and it looked very nice and clean. It had two pools which were much quieter than the pools in the fishing village.
Friends stayed in the Aegean Village and they were more than happy with their room.
The food in the restaurant was varied and had alot of choice. The fruit for breakfast was a little disappointing as I was expecting a wide variety but all you got were oranges, grapefruit, apples and pears and tinned peaches. There were lots of other items on offer such as pastries, cheese and ham and of course cooked breakfast.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The entertainment staff were all great and very talented singers. They made everyone feel at home.
The wedding took place outside the chapel in the courtyard which was lovely. The wedding breakfast was also held outside in the courtyard and the food was excellent. The weather was very hot and therefore if I go back it would be at a cooler time of the year so you could do more sightseeing.
The hotel is definitely geared to families and therefore not ideal if you want a really peaceful holiday but all in all the wedding was fab, the hotel was great and the staff were friendly.
