Alexander The Great Beach Hotel
Ranked #2 of 84 Hotels in Paphos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The staff and service at the Alexander the Great are amazing. They've thought of the little things that matter: you're allocated sunbeds for the duration of your stay, so no need to get up early to put your towels out; you don't need to take your own beach towels as they're provided for you (just think how much space that saves in your suitcase); there's no charge or deposit for the safe in your room. Every breakfast and evening meal was fantastic - both food and service. The pool and swim-up pool bar were perfect - you don't need to take money with you as you sign for your drinks and pay at reception whenever you like. They've made a real effort with the pool menu too, so you can work your way through the great list of delicious cocktails. We'd probably choose to go again when it's a little cooler - it was in the mid to high 30s each day, but I'd definitely return to this fantastic hotel.

Room Tip: Family rooms don't have a balcony, but you get the extra space for children's beds. We didn...

We have just returned from 10 nights at this hotel and cannot wait to return next year!!

We chose the hotel after reading all the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor so it is pleasing to be able to add to all the positive feedback and nice to confirm the integrity of this site which is sometimes called into question.

From start to finish the level of customer service was impeccable, every member of staff from cleaners to bar staff to reception greeted us with a smile and kind words on every occasion.

Special mentions to Phillipa guest relations and jakub who worked at the pool bar, I have never seen somebody work so hard but remain totally unphased.

They and many other members of staff are an asset to this hotel and I do hope they retain their services, all credit to the hotel, their training regime must be first class.

Our room was immaculately cleaned every day and on an evening a room turndown just added a little extra touch which made all the difference.

This was our first holiday without our children so it was extra special and although this was a family hotel it was suitable for couples of all ages. I do think a lot of families will book the hotels new offering which is opening next year a few minutes up the road but you do notice a difference between this and an all inclusive, the overall quality was of a far higher standard.

We spent a good few nights watching the family entertainment which was impressive, far better than the normal bland kids disco and local tribute acts you see at spanish hotels!!

We were half board which was our only mistake, after one night of queuing for food we decided to eat out on an evening, buffet style was not our cup of tea but that's purely down to personal taste.

As many others have commented the sunbed allocation is a perfect idea and seemed to work, although we never really used ours we preferred to explore the local area rather than lay sunbathing all day (too hot!!).

To summarise a fantastic hotel in every way and in a perfect location, 10 minute walk to main paphos bay. After our first week we booked to return next year same time but in a superior room, we cannot wait to return.

Finally many thanks to the hotel for giving us a room on the third floor which we requested as this was a special occasion.

Great staff and as said before the sunbed allocation system is a great plus but the area has become a bit crowded... Staff helpful and hotel very clean.. The cleaners work really hard !! ..The food at the breakfast was good with a large choice. Small concern was the main pool which seemed very cloudy to us (we could not see the bottom on a couple of occasions ) , we subsequently decided not to swim in it the last few days.. The smaller uncover pool was lovely however.. Perhaps they need to consider draining the main pool fully even if it takes a little time as the cleaning did not always seem to work...

We stayed here as a family and the overriding experience was that of the superb service from all staff. They were absolutely fantastic and went out of their way to help, always with a smile. We asked and it got sorted, not that there were any problems as such, but all requests we made were met graciously and dealt with efficiently.

The food was as expected. The All Stars worked tirelessly to please with activities in the day, singing and dancing in the evening. Steven's Tina Turner being an absolute classic.

Sunbed allocation system took the stress out of securing a good spot. Everywhere was spotless and housekeeping excellent. Even our daughters soft toy, which she left behind, was dispatched to us efficiently with the hotel even phoning us to check that we had received it.

Beyond the call of duty.

Great hotel; immaculately clean, with no end of staff to cater for all needs (cleaners; room attendants; pool attendants; pool bed supervisors; waiters etc. etc.).

We had an issue with our room since we had upgraded our booking and were not pleased with the room we were given. Our concerns were dealt with efficiently, with no fuss (handled by our Thomson rep and hotel staff) and we were over the moon with the hotel's actions to deal with our concerns. Very professional.

The food in Gabriella's, the Italian restaurant, was delicious, and the Japanese was very good too in a beautiful outside setting. The buffet food is good with plenty of choice. The waiting staff are efficient, polite and very friendly. Breakfasts are also very good.

We enjoyed a coffee at the Infinity bar overlooking the sea and stars after an evening walk into Paphos.

Allocation of sun-beds is a great idea.

All in all, a very pleasant stay in a great location with plenty of friendly, competent staff on hand.
