“Great but not exceptional”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Firstly, parking on-site at this place can be a bit of a nightmare, however we were lucky to get what seemed to be the last space on each occasion of arriving here. We stayed for 2 nights in a superior cabana in the adults only section of the hotel, out of season the price we payed was well under what other hotels were offering over Valentines Day. However, having checked the dates for a stay between May-October, this place is expensive. The room was lovely and I very much appreciated the jacuzzi bath. The toiletries they provide are the best I have encountered in a hotel. The room we stayed in, 031, backs on to the indoor swimming pool, so on both mornings we were awoken by the swimming lesson taking place. The breakfast of a morning makes the perfect start to the day however the buffet dinner we had was really not to our liking, having paid extra for half board we were quite disappointed. The bar has a wide array of cocktails and are very fairy priced. We enjoyed our nights listening to the Motown music and sipping cocktails. We did enjoy this hotel, for the out of season price we paid we can't complain. Wouldn't visit in peak season and there's a few finer points that need to be ironed out.

Stayed here for one night on a Valentines day. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food from the lobby bar was reasonably priced and enjoyable. Rooms were well appointed with a very comfy bed. Indoor swimming pool was handy for a nice relaxing dip. Will stay again as live locally.

Everything from the friendly and helpful staff, to the beautiful grounds and our gorgeous cabana with private pool, this hotel is for sure on our map from now on. Great prices and could easily be considered a 5 star hotel but at 4 star prices.. Really worth visiting!

My wife and I spend a week at the Alexander the Great hotel, Paphos as part of a golfing package through Golfbreaks. The golf and the hotel were excellent, apart from one significant issue- noise in the night. On two occasions we had a sleepless night due to a clanking noise, first thought to be a neighbour's door banging, but the second night traced to a mechanical something in the ceiling. We has asked for a change of room after the first disturbed night, but we were informed that the "banging door" guests had left and so no further problems were anticipated. This seemed OK, and it was only on a later night we realised that it was something in the ceiling. I contacted the hotel after our visit and received an apology and an offer of two free B&Bs as a token of regret. As the the other aspects of our stay were good - good food, good service etc. and the golf arranged by golfbreaks (especially at the Alea Golf course) was fine, we may go again and take advantage of the offer. The hire car which was thrown in for free as part of the hotel deal was good for driving to golf and sight-seeing.

Room Tip: The hotel manager assured me in his letter after the stay, that the banging in the ceiling had been...

Just returned home after staying at the Alexander the Great hotel at Paphos for a week. What a lovely Hotel. Right on the promenade we were able to walk into the Harbour and around the headland. Our room was spacious and modern. Very clean and well presented . The king size bed was very comfortable and the linen was changed at least twice whilst we were there. Large flat screen television with English channels for those who don't want to miss their soaps. We up-graded to a sea view and it was well worth it. We found we had the sun all day. Free wi fi was a great benefit.
We stayed half board plus and found it excellent. Good food with a different theme every night. We visited the Garibaldi Italian restaurant in the hotel and this proved to be very special. Fine dining at its best. All the hotel staff were well trained and went out of their way to make us feel special and looked after. The nightly entertainment was first class with a varied programme . We travelled for the first time with Thomson and would not hesitate to do so again. In all a very enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: Up-grade to sea view. Room 213 had sun all day.
