“Dream come true”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We stayed from 12/4/14 to 19/4/14 for my son's wedding. He had stayed there last year to check it out as a venue. The hotel is quite simply brilliant the restaurants are very good as you would expect but the buffet restaurant does not feel like one, and is a pleasure to eat in. The wedding day was wonderful and the staff and service impeccable . Thank you for making my son and his new wife's dreams come true a magical time

There is much already said about this terrific hotel, so we wanted to focus on the Cabana rooms for our review.

Highs

Spacious room
Personally controlled Air Con
Large king sized bed, not two singles
Pool towels in room and frequently changed
Fairly private sunbathing and personal space around plunge pool
Little blue light over toilet (no dark visits during the night)
Mini bar/fridge, restocked daily and not crazy prices.
Large powerful shower
Plenty of UK TV channels

Lows

The pool cleaning system stays on all night..this is very noisy when sleeping, make sure you take ear plugs. (Also reported to hotel)
In late April, the exterior pools were all unheated and felt like they would freeze a penguin!! Don't waste your money on them until the height of summer, the non-pool versions were so close to the Adult pool you can jump in to cool down with no effort.
The image on the hotel website is very misleading, so please check out the real pics on ours and others reviews.

Overall we would highly recommend the hotel and would stay again on a future visit to Paphos.

We visited The Alexander the Great Hotel in Paphos in April and stayed in one of the Cabanas with private pool, and can only describe the room as exceptional!
We were greeted with a smile and a drink while we checked in and our bags were taken to the room.
The main reception area of the hotel is a beautiful and comfortable area.
The Hotel has plenty of elevators.

The room itself was sizable and modern with a big King size bed, fridge, safe, free wifi (in room and throughout the hotel) and excellent TV system. The bathroom also was sizable and modern with a good shower and a jet bath.

The big selling point for the room was obviously the private pool, which was superb. Sunshine hits the private pool very early in the day right up until sunset and is not shaded (although a parasol is supplied). I did notice that the cabana with pool closest to the hotel was shaded for part of the morning so if booking ask specifically for one of the 3 furthest away.

Right next to the private pool is the Adults only serenity pool which looks superb and is very relaxing and has a nice seating area. The indoor pool is very close to the cabana rooms and is also very good. There is a toddlers paddling pool nearer the main pool and the main part of the hotel. The main pool is a good size and has a superb swim up bar. There is also a very good poolside bar/snack bar between the main pool and the cabana area.

There Is a beach walkway open to the public at the bottom of the pool areas and leads to Paphos Harbour and tourist area which is only a short walk.

The Alexander bar in the main hotel is a very nice bar where quite good entertainment is provided nightly.

The Japanese Kiku and Liminaki Greek restaurants were closed when we visited as it was winter months, which was a disappointment however the Garibaldi Italian restaurant was excellent. The Main eating restaurant Roxanne's provided a good buffet every night.

A notable point of the hotel is the exceptional friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Easily the best staff I have ever dealt with in any hotel. From the receptionist to the bar staff to the waiters to the cleaners, everyone of them were superb and the hotel should be commended for the standards it's staff sets.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but it is especially suited for couples of any age, and families. The adults only area is perfect for couples whilst the main pool area is great for families. Happily this hotel does not seem to attract 18-30 types, which in my opinion is a good thing.

Overall I cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: I did notice that the cabana with pool closest to the hotel was shaded for part of the morning so if...

A very nice hotel with very helpful , friendly staff... Good food , clean and not overly expensive..
We went to a friends wedding which was at the hotel in early April .. (Beautiful setting for a wedding)..Which was not too hot.. And quite quiet for that time of year... The hotel has some stuff on through the day ( darts ,games etc ) and nights ( music ,Cabaret,quiz) which keeps you entertained ..10/10

We are a 30 something couple and at that time of year we where about the youngest .. Not sure how different it would be when kids are on holidays but defiantly a place for the more older couple ...would go back again but properly later in the year...April was 20 degrees average ..

We stayed in one of the Cabana rooms with pool for our honeymoon in April. We had an amazing time, it was very relaxing and enjoyable. The room was a good size with a large bathroom with a huge shower and separate spa bath. The cleaners deserve a medal for the wonderful job they do, cleaning the room during the day, then coming back in the evening to take away used towels, and leave a chocolate on your pillow. They left our room spotless every day.
It was great having our own pool with loungers, the pool was freezing but nice to cool down in. However if staying in another room you will be allocated sunbeds on arrival which are yours for the duration of your stay. Our room looked over the adults only pool so the whole area was always very peaceful. The main pool is a good size with swim up bar, although this was not open at this time of year.
The main buffet restaurant was nice enough with staff being very attentive and the food choices and quality excellent, however the Italian and Japanese were on another level. The service was amazing, staff extremely helpful in explaining dishes and so polite. The food was simply delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed both these meals. Make sure you book either before you go on holiday or as soon as you arrive as we struggled to make reservations with it being a much smaller restaurant.
The service at breakfast and lunch was also fantastic, and the food choices always great with plenty of options.
The evening entertainment was a hit or a miss. Warren, the entertainments manager was brilliant and an amazing singer. Matthew the other regular performer was also great, really funny. The rest of the nights were not nearly as good and we didn't stick around to watch.
The one and only small complaint was before we went to Cyprus a member of our family had contacted the hotel to let them know we were going on our honeymoon, however the hotel didn't even acknowledge this at all during our stay.
Overall we had a lovely time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others and hope to return at some point in the future.

Dear Reviewer,

Let us thank you for choosing Alexander The Great Beach Hotel for your honeymoon.We really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and comments about your honeymoon stay at our hotel.

Thank you for mentioning the Cabana room with pool with its separate spa bath and walk in shower in the bathroom, also that you found the adults only area where the cabanas are situated very peaceful. The Cabanas are for adults only, no children under 12 years are allowed in these rooms, so as you stated that makes this area with the Serenity adults only pool more peaceful.

Also thank you for mentioning the main theme buffet restaurant Roxane's, Kiku the Japanese and Garibaldi the Italian. It is advisable to book the specialty restaurants as soon as you get here as they are very popular, as we don't pre-book them prior to arrival. Warren our entertainments manager will be thrilled when he sees you have mentioned him.

Most importantly you have highlighted our greatest asset the team of staff we have here. We are very proud of each and every one of them and their commitment to provide the very best in customer service.

The whole team and I sincerely look forward to welcoming you back again very soon for your first wedding anniversary we hope.

Fantastic Staff really make a hotel and many a hotel could learn a lot from this wonderful very well oiled machine. Mr George, Siiska and the other Mr George (she knows who she is) made our stay Magical and the only negative point I can find is that we had to leave!

To experience a Cypriot Easter was on my "bucket list", now I have a new entry. To experience a Cypriot Easter again.
Our visit to Alexander the Great exceeded all expectations as everything was efficiently organised by Philippa, the Friday night visit to see the Epitaphios, the Saturday preparations in the hotel and the Saturday/Sunday midnight mass.
This is an added bonus to our stay in the hotel. Everybody seems to be more friendly and helpful than before (7 previous visits). The Entertainments teams gets better with each visit.
We can't wait to go back in November and again next Easter.
