Reviewed 26 April 2014

Another fantastic holiday at the Alexander the Great Beach Hotel. The fact that we have stayed at this hotel 31 times speaks for itself. The staff are wonderful, the restaurants first rate and the food first class. The choice at breakfast means there is something for everyone. The evening themed buffets in Roxannes restaurant are excellent and the choice of food fantastic. The Garilbaldi and Kiku restaurants offer exquisite food and everyone should eat in these restaurants at least once during their stay. Pambos, Executive chef and George, Sous chef supported by Marios are very professional and very attentitive. They're always seen walking around the food area making sure everything is as it should be. Philippa, Guest Relations is a real gem, she's so friendly and always finds time to talk to guests. Andreas, General Manager is seen around the hotel and is very approachable. The entertainment team, Warren - entertainment manager, Beth, Steven, Aimee, Emily and Emily (kids club) worked hard all day and their evening shows were superb. Our final mention must go to Leoni, reservations who we have known since she started at the hotel. She is friendly, exceptionally helpful and very good at her job. Thank you everyone at the Alexander the Great .We look forward to returning in December where will celebrate our birthdays, Christmas and New Year.

Having stayed previously at "The Alex" with a couple of years out due to ill health we are so pleased we decided to stay there again, and what a change with the refurbshed rooms and the redesigned main pool and the additional Serenity pool. We couldnt have a grass based sun bed and foound excellent replacements next to the Serenity pool. The refurbished rooms look and are wonderful, and having previously had seaview rooms before we loved every minute in our second floor seaviewm with wonderful,views and it was relaxing from the first to the last minute we were there. Using the Hotelas a base we were able to visit our many friends and use the local rstaurants for eveningmeals altough the facilities for meals are extensive and a delight to use.As always the facilities meet almost your every need and the staff were there if needed and were always able to help in whatever way they could. I can say with certainty we will be back!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Side sea views are very good but you will nt beat the full sea views - spectacular

Our week at the ATG was fantastic from start to finish. Great hotel and amenities but what made it was the staff. By far the best service we've received in a holiday resort hotel anywhere in the Med. Seaview room is a must, as is getting a booking for both the Italian and Japanese restaurants. Allocated sunbeds for the week was the icing on the cake. Never been one to return to a holiday hotel as there are a lot of them out there to try, but already planning on returning to the ATG next Easter!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a seaview deluxe

A great time was had here in Easter Week. The service was faultless from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We had a room with a sea-view and would advise any one booking to look for one of these rooms as I do know that the rooms road side are much noisier. Saying that we were both impressed with the service given from the cleaners to the cooks, the bar staff and the reception. Following a late arrival we were given complimentary drinks and a voucher for lunch or dinner on our last day. The rooms were cleaned daily and the restaurant food was great. Breakfast out on the courtyard was perfect. It's location is ideal for walking along the pier and taking in the tranquility of the island. Going in the Spring also meant there was plenty of foliage. If you do the research there is a bus service that will take you to the Hotels along the pier and is a lot cheaper than taking a taxi or pre-booked coach! We would both happily return to the hotel again.

Room Tip: As cited would recommend a room on the sea side of the hotel rather than the road side as I gather i...

We had an enjoyable stay. The AC in our room did not really work, so the room was "muggy" during the day. The hotel staff was very professional and friendly.We will definitely stay there again, and we will upgrade to a room with a balcony (we just assumed all the rooms had balconies, so we never thought to ask when booking).

Room Tip: Make sure your room's AC works.

Had to say how much we enjoyed our holiday here. Not a lot to add to everyone else's comments really, but I can see why it has so many returning guest. Very friendly staff and ambience, perfect location, lovely food especially the Italian restaurant ( which must be booked early ). Would recommend a sea view room, as these get the sun from lunchtime onwards and beautiful sunsets. Kanika all stars provide great entertainment. Easy walking in both directions, also bus passes by every 10 minutes. A great holiday so would recommend.

This was our first trip to The Alexander The Great Beach Hotel but it certainly won't be our last. We always check out Trip Advisor feedback before selecting hotels and we can most honestly state that the glowing reports matched our experience at this hotel. From the moment we arrived until we checked out, the staff in all areas of the hotel (reception, housekeeping, restaurant and bar) were some of the most professional we have come across and high standards were evident throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and I can only surmise that they have a rigid and successful process for recruiting their staff. Management presence is evident around the hotel checking that the high standards are being maintained.The location is second to none with tremendous views across the bay and harbour (you really should pay extra for the sea view). Prior to our stay, we requested a high floor as we had experienced security problems at another hotel when staying on a low floor; this request was met without problem and we were allocated a top floor room. The food is buffet-style which can prove to be monotonous, but not here where dinner undertook a different international theme each evening. The animation team worked tirelessly during the day and evening and provided some superb entertainment. If you read any negative reports on this hotel, I would put them down to 'serial complainers'!!

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floor sea-view rooms have pretty much uninterrupted views. Our room, Room 359, looked di...
