We stayed at the Aliathon on our honeymoon for the second week of June 2010, we travelled with our 3 children aged 7, 5 and 20 months. We honestly could not have asked for a better holiday/honeymoon. We stayed in the Fishing Village in a 1 bedroom apartment, which had 2 levels, the kids staying in twin beds upstairs and us on sofa beds downstairs and our little one in a travel cot, which looked brand new.
We were taken on arrival to our room one one of their little golf buggys which my kids still rave about they thought it was so much fun - and the staff at reception and the porters couldnt do enough to help you, alway with massive smiles even the maids who were in every day apart from sunday were always waving and smiling at the kids.
The apartment had 2 bathrooms and the biggest balcony i have ever seen, with a table 4 chairs and 2 sun loungers !!! We overlooked the kids "pirate ship" pool and this was fantastic for our kids........and us !! I cant find fault with the rooms, I know previous reviews have moaned about the agean rooms but you couldnt ask for a better room than in the fishing village. The air con was perfect, every time we walked in the room we breathed a sigh of relief and it didnt go off as other reviews have suggested so dont know what happened to them. The rooms had everything including 2 TVs (with many english channels and a good kids one), a dvd player, well stocked kitchen with fridge, microwave oven , toaster and plates etc.........
The pools are amazing, we pretty much stayed round the kids pirate pool or the main fishing village pool as there was so much going on. The reps work tirelessly and offer a massive variety of activities by the pool, inclusing a fun daily quiz, hamster water ball, shuffleboard, archery...the list was endless but they dont badger you to get involved just let u know whats on and when.
On subject of the reps, they were always about to answer questions, chatting to families etc and super friendly. Cant comment on kids club as ours were too busy to go but it looked like they had loads going on and all the kids seemed to buzz round the reps day and night. The evening entertainment was brilliant, really good fun for the kids with prizes, games and dancing every night, cant fault it at all. We didnt stay for adult entertainent as we had to get little ones to bed but sounded like some great fun things were going on....and of course bingo !!!!
The food was fantastic !!! Me and my husband have come back a stone heavier between us lol as there was soooo much choice !!! I hadnt been al inclusive before and I would definately go again on the basis of what we had at the Aliathon. There was massive choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a huge range of drinks in the restaurant and at all the bars, there was also plenty of ice cream and daytime snacks, including sandwiches, pastas, salads etc not just the burgers and hotdogs that people expect.
All in all we had the honeymoon of a lifetime and to anyone who found fault with the place must have been looking super hard - I would definately stay in the fishing village again like a shot, and Paphos itself was beautiful and the people are so friendly, loads of shops and restaurants to chose from and we walked the half hour down the harbour one night which was definately worth the walk.........all in all : Perfect !! :)
