Alexander The Great Beach Hotel
Ranked #4 of 85 Hotels in Paphos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Stayed for two weeks in July/August and as expected the weather was fantastic. Hotel is in a nice area only 5 minutes walk from Paphos harbour which has lots of friendly bars and restaurants. The hotel itself is very clean and kept clean by an army of exceedingly friendly people. In fact, the staff overall were brilliant, without exception. We stayed as full board plus and whilst the meals were great, it did get a bit samey towards the end. Not the hotel's fault but ours as it did make you feel a little tied. I should add that the salads were amazingly fresh as was the fruit so you can be healthy if you want to be.

As some others have said, the road side is very noisy and did make some nights difficult. We did ask to be changed but they were fully booked so we had to put up with it. I did ask long before we departed but we were declined. As a light sleeper this affected me but others might not.

The pool areas is lovely and clean as was the sunbed area. i didnt feel hemmed in as some others did as people came and left all the time and the allocation system is a Godsend so at least you dont have people putting towels on 'their' spot at ten PM each evening.

pahos is a lovely town and we would most certainly go back.

A big thank you has to go to the staff for such friendliness.

Room Tip: Definitely beachfront

Such a nice place to be. Staff from reception to housekeeping were #1.
Alexander bar is so relaxing, breakfast was really good snack lunches ,large and reasonably priced.
Sun bed allocation on arrival was great, sad to see the older attendant finish. He had such a good way with guests.
A better class of family hotel.
Want to go back now!!!

Room Tip: A pool view room is best, side seaview can get some road noise.

We have just returned from a two week holiday here, as a family. We had two superior rooms, full front sea view with balconies. Everything about the holiday and the hotel was excellent. We were met at the door by the porter, and welcomed with drinks whilst checking in. Our rooms were spotless and to a good standard. All the staff are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is cleaned regularly to a high standard and even the cleaners take time to speak and smile. Food is good, especially the Italian and Japanese restaurant. The evening entertainment with Kanika Allstars is very varied and thoroughly enjoyable. This is the first hotel we have stayed at and wanted to watch the entertainment each night due to the great team run by Warren. He is really humourous and great fun. All of them are so friendly but a special mention to Aimee who is just wonderful. Around the pool Erik and Angelina are very friendly, but so are all of them. I especially liked Raj the restaurant manager. It really has been a fabulous holiday and I would happily return.

...that has not already been said about this hotel.
This hotel is well worth visiting. Its location is fantastic, right on the beach and just a short walk to the harbour. The rooms are well decorated, the beds very comfortable and the bathroom well fitted. The pool is lovely and the allocated sunbeds take a lot of stress out of the morning.

The restaurants offer good quality food with very good service from breakfast through to dinner. We usually find the food can become boring, but at this hotel we never got bored. Each night in the Roxane Buffet restaurant there is different theme, BBQ, Mexican, Italian, Cypriot and Oriental to name a few. As well as the buffet you can also visit the Greek, Japanese and Italian restaurants. The Italian was our favourite with the most amazing service and food.

However, what gives this a hotel a 5 rating are the amazing staff. Angelina and Erik from the pool bar work flat out day and night, always smiling, even during the hottest parts of the day when serving drinks outside when everyone else is melting. Soula the lovely lady that cleaned our room along with Katerina did a fantastic job we could not fault the service they gave.

The real stars of the staff though are the Kanika Allstars. Warren, Aimee, Beth, Emily and Steven are amazing. They run all the daytime activities including a teen programme (my daughter wants review this herself) and then on an evening perform the most amazing shows, Chicago Rouge is a must see. All the shows are produced to a very high standard and the singing and dancing is some of the best I have seen. The shows are mixed in with fun quizzes, Casino night and some competitions which are so much fun, I have never laughed some much. We were lucky enough during our stay to be treated to Warren doing his solo performance, which he said was a one off which is a shame as, this was brilliant. There is a Kids Club, where all the kids seemed to be having really good fun. The entertainment has something for every one, even Bingo but only one game a week, which even as none Bingo player we still enjoyed.

This hotel is an ideal place for a holiday for the whole family from grandparents to young children. We would definitely go back and would recommend to any one thinking about visiting Pafos.

Room Tip: Sea view is amazing, but the inland view rooms are larger and we preferred the extra room. We were...

After an initial room problem, which was sorted out, we had a fabulous holiday. The hotel is beautiful, excellently organised, very well situated to walk to Paphos, the first holiday we've never hired a car! The food was brilliant, excellent choice and variety.
Loved the sun bed allocation, yes they are closer together, but there is enough for everyone and no getting up at the crack of dawn to claim a sun bed!
All the staff from the cleaners, bar staff, restaurant staff and entertainment staff were lovely, very efficient, friendly and happy to be working here!
The entertainment team, Warren, Emily, Steven, Beth and Aimee were fabulous, absolutely multi-talented! Games and quizzes arranged during the day and a great variety of shows and other entertainment during the evening, something for everyone.
We will definitely be returning. Thanks for a brilliant holiday!!

Room Tip: Get a front sea view room

I have stayed at many good hotels over the years but never taken the time before to write a review, so what is different about the Alexander the Great Hotel? The answer is the staff. The Hotel is immaculate with great facilities but it is the staff that lift this hotel to another level. Special mentions to Erik, Angelina and Quinton from the waiting team for excellent service but for us the real stars of this hotel is Mr Warren Amis and his fantastic entertainment team of Aimee, Beth, Emily and Stephen. They do not stop all day with Zumba, darts, water volleyball, water polo and archery available if you want but not in an intrusive way but they really impress with the evening shows. At previous hotels the entertainment has usually driven us to leave the hotel each evening but here we looked forward each day to the evening shows. This is a very talented and hard working team that made a big difference to our holiday.
