Louis Phaethon Beach
Ranked #20 of 85 Hotels in Paphos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2013

We travelled for a wedding, and there was a large group of us ranging in age from 2 to 80. There were ups and downs to this hotel. The food was fine for all inclusive, although I do wish they wouldn't provide tinned fruit at breakfast, rather than fresh fruit (they did provide kiwi fruit, and oranges but that was the only fresh fruit at breakfast). The food on offer was tasty, and if you looked around all the food stations, you could usually get something nice to eat.

Everyone in our group enjoyed the pools, they were well managed, with plenty of life-guards. I would say that the pool was the best part of the hotel, and the place where everyone enjoyed themselves. It has been a long time since going to an All Inclusive hotel where you are not supplied with pool towels. Also, you have to get up early in the morning to safe sun loungers (I was up early one morning, and people had already been out before 6am!)

Rooms that others in our party stayed at seemed quite nice, ours appeared to be the only one that hadn't been refurbished, and I also complained about the strong smell of drains or sewage in our room, this wasn't resolved. Others in our party didn't have the same problem though so I think it depends where your room is.

The air conditioning was not very good, espeically in the restaurant in the evenings, half way through the meal I became too hot, someone in our party complained about this, but were left feeling they were the only one to complain.

The staff at the hotel were really good, the bar staff, restaurant staff and reception staff were all polite, helpful whilst all being really busy.

The entertainment was a bit of a let down, this was mainly due to the timings being all out. If something was advertised as being 10pm, it often didn't start until much later.

All in all, we enjoyed the holiday. It was for a family wedding, which was wonderful, the kids really enjoyed their time there, and ultimately if you are going with children, if they are happy, then usually the parents are happy.

If I was travelling without children, as a couple, I would book into the hotel next door, which was adults only.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for commenting on a recent stay at the Louis Phaethon Beach.

We are delighted to hear that the wedding you attended was a marvellous event and that everyone in your party had a great holiday. It is a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your time at our splendid pool area and that you would commend our staff for their polite and friendly work ethic. We thank you for bringing you observation in regards to the timing of our entertainment program which we will follow-up on immediately.

Nonetheless, in spite of these negatives, we are happy to hear that you had a great holiday amongst family and friends; for a more relaxing holiday we would like to suggest other Louis Hotels such as the King Jason, also in Paphos, or the Royal Apollonia in Limassol.

We hope to welcome you back to the Louis Phaethon Beach or one of our other Louis Hotels.

Kind regards,

Just got back from the Louis Phaethon yesterday and have to say we all said it was one of the best holiday we'd had, once we had gotten over the room size which was booked as a family room for 3 aduts and a child ( my daughter being 15 and son 10). The room was barly big enough for 2 adults. That said it didn't take long to realize the pro's outweighed the cons massively! the animation team were fab the shows at night were very proffesional and all the staff were very freindly thank you to Illia and Anna for looking after us so well in the bar! Plenty going on during the day if wanted to get involved and no mither if you just wanted to sit back and soak up the sun and the stunning scenery. The food was probably the best I have had for this kind of hotel, good choice and great service. I would definatley recommend this hotel to friends and will go back again sometime in the future.

Having just returned from this hotel i thought i would share my opinion of this resort!

THE UGLY-

Rooms are really small and in desperate need of a refurb! found a bug in my bed at one point and every morning without fail i would wake up with some more bites ! the poolside WC is probably the worst bathroom ive ever visited in my life!

THE BAD-

The food is terrible wish i could be nicer about it but im afraid i cant! very poor choice of foods and very very repetitive and quality isnt great!



THE GOOD-

The pools are really good and well supervised always lifeguards present
The entertainment team do a great job the quality of shows was excellent , always loads of activities to be had.

i travelled with my wife and 4 year old daughter , I would say this hotel was very good for my daughter but not so for us certainly not a 4 star hotel by any means but again to be fair its good for the children

We hope to see you again at the Louis Phaethon Beach or one of our other Louis Hotels.

Just returned from our first time in this hotel with our teenage son (14) and daughter (10). Just a quick list of the good and not so good points.

GOOD

Brilliant for Kids, loads of all ages there, our two both made friends straight away
Food - Excellent, loads of variety day and night to choose from.
Pool area - Two pools a busy main pool were activities took place, and another second pool a little quieter next to the water sides.
Good service at all times - I was told there was 1300 people in the hotel, however you never seemed to queue for long.
Very Clean
Bottled Keo beer - In the reception and upper bar area

NOT SO GOOD

3 euros per day for the safe
No free wifi 5euros per hour
NO pool towels supplied, don't forget to take your own
Sunbeds - Needs to be sorted out, some people were putting towels out late in the evening and nothing was done about it. You need to be up at 6.00am if not before to get a bed at the poolside.
Rooms - A little on the small side, but at the end of the day you only get changed and sleep in them.
Entertainment Indoors at night - The animators worked really hard, but the bingo and main show were held inside at night, personally we like to sit outside on holiday in the evening, however nice and cool because of air conditioning but it felt a bit like a social club, and could get really busy.

Other Points

The hotel is positioned at the bottom tip of Kato Paphos, you can walk into town but it could take you an hour. If you do walk up town use the coastal path passed all the other hotels, its really nice and you get the sea breeze.

There is a bus stop outside the hotel,1.50 euro per person into town one way. But you can buy a day ticket for unlimited travel for 5 euros

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for choosing to stay at the louis Phaethon Beach.

Firstly, we are delighted to hear that you found our hotel ideal for children as there are many activities and facilities suitable for their enjoyment. Moreover, we are glad to read that you were pleased with the variety of our cuisine and the outstanding standard of our service. It is a further thrill to hear that you had a great time at both our pools, with one being more active while the other provided for a quieter area. In regards to your comment about our internet and the safe, we hope you understand that we took the decision of not including this fee in our room rate as to not charge guests for a service they may not wish to use. Furthermore, we would like to inform you that we have tried to provide pool towels for so many people in the past and instead of pleasing our guests, we actually had the adverse effect which is why the decision was taken not to provide them. Additionally, in regards to your comment about the reservation of sunbeds, we hope you understand that we inform our guests of our policy that forbids this however, the poolside sun beds are always very popular. All in all, despite these minor issues, we are happy to hear that you had an overall pleasant family holiday.

We hope to welcome you back to the Louis Phaethon Beach in the nearest future.

Best regards,

The Management.

My family & I have just returned from louis phaeton & had a lovely time. Only 2 complaints though. Firstly the air conditioning. Even at the coolest setting, it wasn't cool at all. We mentioned it to the reps & they said they would get maintenance to take a look but there was no improvement. We also heard other people saying their air con was very poor too. My other complaint was other guests were putting their towels out the night before or at the crack of dawn then not turning up until lunchtime! The hotel should stop this. Apart from that, we couldn't fault the hotel. All of the hotel staff, animation team, kids club staff & thomson/ first choice reps were very friendly. Always a smile & a hello! Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The food was very nice with lots of choice. The splashpark was brilliant & the lifeguards around the pools were very good. We were recommended this hotel & weren't disappointed. We would definatly return to the louis phaethon. Thank you for a lovely family holiday!

Not a bad hotel, but far from 5* ... Check in was great, very efficient and friendly - in fact a few of the check in's we saw from other companies didn't receive the complimentary juice/chamgpagne/beer drink and towels on arrival.
The rooms were clean and cozy (for that read large enough for 2 adults !) but adequate for what we wanted. We had a lovely sea view over the pools as well. Fantastic.. Food was abundant and lovely.. a great selection and always hot/cold to the right temperature and cooked thoroughly. Staff were friendly and always helpful.
However..... for some reason, even though First Choice graded this as 3* Plus/4* it let itself down slightly... We have never been abroad to a hotel of this standard and not had pool towels - we had to go and buy our own. Not a major issue as they were only a few Euros each. The Louis Ledra Beach/Palace only a few hundred yards down the road did offer them. Why ? I don't know as they are the same company after all.. Also the wi-fi was expensive.. I think that my partner paid 15 Euros for 3 hours.. again, a company of this stature Id have thought would have offered free wi-fi all over the hotel - bars downtown offer it free !
Unfortunately the beach was a let down.. it was non existent really. There is a beach a couple of hundred meters up the coast but again, when you're all inclusive why would you want to pay for drinks and loungers ?
Overall a lovely hotel with great pools (the kids loved the slides !), great staff and great food. However they just need to sort out the few niggly points.

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for your valuable feedback about a recent holiday at the Louis Phaethon Beach.

It is a pleasure to hear that you found our check-in very efficient and that you gladly welcomed the refreshments we had prepared for you upon arrival. We are thrilled to read that you thoroughly enjoyed the delicious selection of our cuisine that was always served at ideal temperatures and that our staff was friendly and helpful at all times. In regards to your comment about our towels, we hope you understand that the Louis Ledra Beach accommodates only 1/3 of the guests that the Phaethon does. We have tried to provide pool towels for so many people in the past and instead of pleasing our guests, we actually had the adverse effect. Subsequently, a decision was taken not to provide towels, which in fact is reflected in the difference in room rate for both hotels. We would also like to inform you that we took the decision of excluding the internet fee from our room rate so as not to charge guests for a service that is effectively optional. We are working hard with our Tour Operators to solve this matter and as soon as we do please rest assured that we will be more than happy to provide the service free of charge. Despite these minor remarks, we are delighted to read that you had a lovely holiday which catered well to you and your family.

We hope to welcome you back to the Louis Phaethon Beach in the nearest future.

Warm wishes,

The Management.

Just returned ,Hotel and food as good as usual ,bar staff especially Billy Jonny, Anna and a few others looked after us well., We booked with a party of 9 (4 rooms) back in August 2012, on booking with First Choice we requested to be all together in the same area as 2012 giving room 2006 as a example, on checking in we found that out party had been split rooms 2005/6 and 2094/6 completely over the other side of the hotel, we were very disappointed in this as proved to be very inconvenient as things hair straightners etc had to be shared. When we challenged this with the hotel they could only offer 1 other room closer to 2006 which would not have helped, so we had a lot of running from one side of hotel to other, there were some other requests however First Choice did not forward to hotel, a little disappointed there.
The evening entertainment was a little disappointing this year as repeated itself in the second week usually there is a two week cycle.
Overall we had a great time however had to do the towel run at 6am every morning as we found that people we putting out towels before we had gone to bed, hotel should do something regarding this, for example get the security guards at night to collect and leave by the animators room for customer to collect in the morning at 9am, perhaps this would stop this

Room Tip: 2006 has a good view

Dear repeat guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience about the Louis Phaethon Beach with the online community.

We are delighted to hear that you found our delicious cuisine and our hotel overall once more to your utmost liking. In regards to your comment about the reservation of sunbeds, we hope you understand that there are enough sun beds for everybody in the hotel grounds; of course the most popular ones are those directly adjacent to the pool and hence the rush to reserve them. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to deal with the matter. Furthermore, we thank you for brining your comparison of our evening entertainment to last year's to our attention which we duly note for future improvements. We would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenient distribution of your rooms; we ask for your understanding that in the peak of the high season and with a hotel which is fully occupied we cannot always meet special room requests. Nevertheless, despite these small negatives, we are glad to hear that you had a great time with your group of friends.

We hope to see you soon again at the Louis Phaethon Beach.

Kindest regards,

The Management.
