This was our second stay at the Alexander The Great Hotel, our last visit was in April 2011 & I was amazed at the transformation that had taken place!

When I read that they were completely refurbishing the Hotel I really couldn’t see where they could improve, as it was very good when we last stayed in 2011.

The foyer & reception area are luxurious & booking in is completed with the minimum of fuss whilst you enjoy a “welcome” drink.

There were 5 of us on this holiday & we had 3 double rooms. The rooms were very modern with all the latest lighting. Exceptionally clean with all the usual toiletries provided.

We were originally allocated a room on the ground floor with a sea view but we managed to get this changed & we moved 2 floors up. So a word of warning. The ground floor sea view rooms do have a sea view but they are somewhat restricted by the roof of the indoor pool & poolside cocktail bar especially if you do not have a frontal central block room. The hotel was full so we were lucky to get this changed. I would recommend you email the hotel direct & request an upper floor sea view room if the view is important to you as it was to us.

The pool areas & outside cocktail bar are just fantastic & I recommend you look at all the photos on the website.

The sun bed allocation is unique & generally works well, it certainly saves me getting up early each morning, however, the hotel was full & some holiday makers didn’t get much of a choice where they laid up for the day because of this allocation.

We stayed on a B & B basis & ate out at a different restaurant in Paphos each evening & that worked for us. Breakfast at the hotel was very good with a great choice to choose from.

All the staff we encountered were helpful & courteous from the room cleaners to the breakfast & bar staff.

We only caught the last 30 or 40 minutes of the live acts each night but these were of a good standard.

The hotel now employs entertainment reps which really does add to the enjoyment of your stay as they worked tirelessly throughout the day.

This is the first time we have ever gone back to the same hotel for a holiday but it had changed so much it really didn’t feel like that. It really has improved, but it was always great..perhaps they should now rename it “Alexander the Magnificent”

We have just returned from another fantastic week at ATG in Paphos. I have always tried to consider every aspect when I have written reviews, marking accordingly. This time (my fifth I think at ATG) scores full marks on all points. Upon entering the hotel, you meet the friendly Front Desk Staff - always efficient, helpful and with a sense of humour. The main restaurant has, on this visit, provided one of the most varied and superb tasting range of cuisine every night of the week. The salad bar takes up three counters. The main courses are wide in variation and to suit all tastes. Whilst probably a little unfair to single out staff, a big thanks to Maria and Elena who every morning and evening escorted us to our seats with humour and warmth. As our deal was half board, we could go for one evening at either the Japanese or the Italian Restaurant. We chose the latter where Deep manages a very smoothe operation. This restaurant is one of the best silver service Italian restaurants I have encountered...simply superb. The rooms are all bright and spacious and well serviced by the Housekeeping Group.
Even if I was going on business, I would select ATG. I cannot praise the hotel high enough and is truly worth a visit.

Room Tip: If an early to bed and a light sleeper the rooms to the front or the centre to left would avoid the...

Let me explain. The hotel is too big (too many rooms) for the spaces it has. The lobby is small with low ceilings, the bars are small with one of the bars where the shows are being the narrow terrace (passage) between the bulding and the pool. The rooms are not bad but definitely at least a bit small.

There are no gardens, and I mean NO gardens. There is a terrace lined with sunbeds (one next to each other) and then the PUBLIC pathway (loud teenagers, dogs for a walk, crowded etc) and the average public beach.

If this hotel was advertised as a good 3 star hotel, may be it would be perfect. But it was advertised as a 4 star superior, which it is by no means such a hotel.

The staff is polite and nice... but definitely not trained enough and not papmering enough to make this a superior service.

So if the price and expectations were lower may be some people would still choose it... but I would definitely be quite ashamed to recommend it to close friends.

Lovely hotel, recently refurbished and all the staff were very helpful.We chose a cabana with its own pool but the water was cold and not comfortable for swimming.At night the constant running water in the pool was quite loud and disturbing.We did ask if it was possible to turn it off at night but were told it was not possible.We booked bed and breakfast which was ideal for us and we visited several places to eat, all within 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

Cannot fault ANYTHING about this hotel. Absolutely every detail has been thought about to make sure guests have a great stay.
All the rooms are furnished to a very high standard. We stayed in a basic deluxe room at the front of the hotel for the first two nights and then moved to a superior room with sea view. . Both rooms were furnished to a very high standard, but we thought it worth the extra money to have a sea view room.
Fabulous location - only 10 minute walk into Paphos harbour & town.
All the staff throughout the hotel are so pleasant and helpful. Every area kept spotlessly clean.
All meals exceptionally good, the Roxannne restaurant for evening buffet has a lovely decor, and the choice of food is excellent. (Different themes each evening) The Italian restaurant is very special - not to be missed (1 free visit included during a 7 night stay) you would pay a fortune for that type of service and food in England. Also the outdoor Japanese restaurant is a must, again excellent food - and very romantic setting watching the sunset!
The sunbed allocation is a great idea. No need to get up at 6am to put your towel on a bed! You choose a sunbed and that is allocated to you during your stay.
The Kanika All Stars worked very hard and put on some excellent evening entertainment.
Philippa the guest relations manager does a fantastic job.
Can't wait to return!
Thank you to everyone at Alexander the Great for making it a holiday to remember!
