This massive, village-style complex packs in loads of sports and activities, a triple helping of restaurants, and a splash park. Oh, and quite possibly the biggest pool in Cyprus...
With a great choice of pools to spick from, a holiday here centres on water-based fun. A huge main pool and splash park top the list, while the beach is a five-minute walk away for a change of scene.
There’s a decent helping of sports, an Aerial Adventure course, and activities and entertainment for everyone from tots to teens. There’s a trio of restaurants to try, too.

Brilliant Family Holiday
Great Holiday As a family group with children ranging from 6-16 we have just returned from the Holiday Village Aliathon Cyprus. In honesty this was a last minute change due to the Tunisian Tragedy and from the Holiday Village Manar, which we been to previously. Whilst in Cyprus, we did ask ourselves why we hadnât considered this village before and could only deduce that the brochure does not do it full justice and it's not got a beach. I will aim to give you a honest view of the resort and the facilities. Accommodation The complex which is spread over a very large area has three key areas. The swim up & Family Suite Rooms - These are in a new small modern block with three floors and very nice relaxed pool and bar alongside. The Fishing Village â the more modern of the two larger areas situated closer to the main pools, snack bar and childrenâs pool. The Aegean Village â the oldest/original complex, close to the main restaurant and reception areas. The rooms are all spacious and well equipped and having seen them all would say its very much down to personal preference. Staff The hotel staff were very efficient and friendly. We experienced the quickest check in procedure ever (thanks to reading a tip on the Aliathon facebook page to make sure you collect the welcome pack from the rep at the airport as this contains the key). We did have an issue with our bath however this was very quickly sorted and followed up by both the hotel and reps. The service in all the bars and restaurants was really very good and not driven by tips. Pools The resort has 2 quiet pools within the Aegean area, another quiet one pool by the swim up block and the largest (split pool) in the Fishing Village as well as the Kids splash/slide area. Most pools either have separate childrenâs pool, graduated depth or good stair and handrails which made entry, swimming etc suitable for all ages and mobilityâs. Sun beds as always were saved, however empty beds could always be found. Towels could be collected and changed at the Spa or Reception. Food The food was good. The main restaurant had theme nights, fresh cooking grill, childrenâs area and all the usual choices. We also had the opportunity to book into the Mexican and Greek al la carte restaurants which are really very good and well worth the visit. The pool side bar used to serve more snacky lunches fresh pizza, BBQ bits and salads - variety did get a little repetitive but we could have gone to the main restaurant if we wished. Out & About Would thoroughly recommend hiring a car if you are wishing to visit a number of places of interest. The roads are good and it always helps the same drive side as the UK! Childrenâs Clubs and Entertainment You cannot fault the programme offered to the children and the ad hoc family activities. With three sessions throughout the day and sometime one in the evening the children enthusiastically were kept very busy. There is something for everyone. We didn't really go to the evening shows so couldn't comment. Overall There was nothing to complain about, a great holiday which would mean we would definitely return.More
Nice hotel overall - room is pot luck
Overall the hotel meets the 4 star rating advertised. However our initial room would not achieve even a 3 star rating, which is a little misleading. We stayed in the older Aegean village side of the hotel, our first room was dirty on arrival with bits on the floor, hair on the bed sheets and we had to make up the bed for one of our toddlers at 11pm after a long day. Surely it wouldn't have been hard to set up for the 2 children included on the booking instead of just one. It was initially dismissed by saying this was the room type we had booked, although our room bore no resemblance to pictures on either Thomson website or the hotels own. No maid service in the first day to make the beds or empty bins of the food waste (they had left sandwiches in the fridge for arrival). Eventually after our second night we were moved to a new room - now this was 4 star and matched what we'd paid for our stay. Still in the older Aegean village but infinitely better. From then on nothing but positive things to say, staff helpful and cheerful. Main restaurant buffet was well stocked and great choice (for vegetarians too) with the exception of one night in the 7 we were there. We didn't eat at either of the a la carte restaurants, one meal in each per stay, as these were near enough impossible to book. Swimming pools were brilliant and overal facilities very good and clean.More

Excellent facilities and a fun-packed family holiday
This was our first trip to a 'Holiday Village' and to be honest, I was apprehensive! I have loved villa holidays in the past as I like the space and privacy and thought this would be crowded and dare I say it, a bit tacky? I was so pleasantly surprised! We booked a 'swim-up' room, which gave us fantastic poolside access where we could go to and from our room easily and also enjoy the decked terrace with sun loungers and table and chairs, as our own space.The room was exceptionally clean, well equipped and modern in decor, with a lot of storage space to keep everything tidy for myself, my husband and our three children. The beds were all comfortable and the bathroom is a wet room style and was both practical and spotless. The all inclusive package is certainly extensive, with a wide selection of food and drinks at every meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and a snack bar open in the afternoon. The food was of decent quality and the choice is huge, so there is something for the pickiest of eaters. Twice a week you get to eat at the other restaurants - the Greek and Mexican. Both were nice but the service was woefully slow in the Mexican unfortunately (they did do a nice frozen strawberry margarita though!) The holiday village has 5(i think) pools, so you are never fighting for a sunbed around the one main pool as everything is spread out. You can easily arrive at midday and get a sunbed anywhere you wish. There is also a lovely waterpark for the kids, which my children thought was fantastic. The holiday village itself is well maintained and full of mature fruit trees, so is very attractive. There is constantly upkeep taking place, and it does show. The entertainment is typically 'holiday' style but the kids loved it, and so do the adults i they allow themselves! The entertainment team are very talented and ridiculously hard working - do they ever have a day or night off?! My two elder children took part in the Football Academy and Swimming Academy which are chargeable extras. They were cheaper if booked before travelling, which is what we did. The eldest loved the Football Academy and treasures his shirt! Whilst my middle child had excellent swimming lessons with Mike & Becca. He went from arriving with his arm bands on, to swimming widths of the pool without them and he had great fun. The instructors make it all very simple and it was money very well spent. The holiday reps were constantly present and seemed to go out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time. The Aliathon staff were all personable as well, even our cleaner was especially friendly. All in all, if you are looking for nice surroundings and a holiday that caters for all ages of children, then this is for you, and if you are a bit picky about hotel rooms (like me!) then book a swim-up room, they're fab.More
EXCELLENT HOLIDAY - FANTASTIC HOTEL
We stayed at Aliathon on July 2015 for only 4 days. Two adults and 2 children 12 and 9. But before I start rating the hotel, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the manager of the hotel Mr Costas Malaou. He was extremely helpful, very polite and very professional. Also the girls on the reception were very polite and helpful. In general we found the personnel of the hotel very friendly and polite. The area of the hotel is huge. This means that distances from one place to another might take some time. Of course when you are on holiday this is not a problem. We stayed in a new block which operated a month ago. We were upgraded to a family suite and everything was new. Spacious room, clean, modern. Comfortable bed and pillows. Two sofa beds for kids, which as my kids said were comfortable as well. Big bathroom and toilet area. Big balcony with pool view. But, in my opinion the room should have an extra table and extra chairs. Also on the balcony should be placed a hanger (for towels and swimsuits). Of course, maybe is in the future plans of the management because as mentioned before, it was recently operated. Common areas were always clean and this is impressive with all that guests going and coming the whole day. Six swimming pools and we manage to visit them all. They were also very clean. The reason we firstly choose this hotel was the pool with mini water park. Even though it was really nice, it turned out that my kids were old for that kind of games. But for a family with younger kids is idle. The minus was the sunbeds. Even though there were hundreds of them, unfortunately you have to wake up from 6 six to book a bed. But this happens to every hotel so by any means you cannot blame the hotel for that. Rich breakfast, big variety for every taste with nice coffee. The place where the breakfast was served was very big so you could find a table any time. There was a Mexican restaurant, an Italian and a Greek one. There is also a supermarket and souvenir shop. There was a show every night and kids loved it. In general we had a fantastic time and we would love to stay here again. Again a big thanks to the manager of the hotel.More

Don't Believe The Hype
Stayed during July 2015 as a family of four based in the Aegeon part of the Aliathon Village. Not sure if our expectations were too high but the negatives edge out the positives. I'd give it a 6.5/10. Expect to be the poor relations if you do not stay in the fishing village. Positives... * We arrived post midnight and sandwiches, a bottle of water and tea and coffee were supplied. Nice touch. * The vast majority of staff were professional and courteous. Special thanks to housekeeping who kept our room in good order. * The complex was kept clean and well maintained. * Sufficient hot water for showers. * Food overall was good with a generous selection. Restaurant staff were attentive and helpful. * The Entertainment Team were good but up against it. See below. * Aneta who served at the Aegeon bar and the adult bar was a real asset. The Adult only bar is worth a visit. * The Aegean pool, although according to the blurb was meant to be a place for relaxing, was a nice size and our favourite part of the complex. I don't think any pool in the world during the kids holidays and with a large welsh wedding group in situ could be anything but lively. Negatives... * Kids club restricted numbers, sometimes a maximum of 16 kids allowed to partake, which is curious when you remember this is a complex geared for children. Waiting in line for 30 minutes to guarantee a slot in oppressive heat is not ideal. First choice need to sort this out. * There was one main snack bar catering for this huge complex which was a quarter of a mile walk in mid 30 degree temperatures from the pool next to the reception. Why there were no snacks available here when the drinks bar adjoined the Italian restaurants is beyond me, it needn't be haute cuisine just a small selection of nibbles. * Main swimming pool, huge but half of it is deep as a paddling pool. It also gets deeper further around a bend so parents need to keep extra vigilant. * Evening entertainment was rather repetitive. The team themselves made a good account of themselves but a real backing band would make a tremendous difference. The acoustics for three quarters of the room is woeful. * Air conditioning unit dripping internally (room 309), reported and fixed but happened again on the last day, bowl placed under drip to prevent water on tiles and an accident waiting to happen. * We stayed in a one bedroom superior apartment which was lovely but didn't have a bath which was unexpected. * Our balcony had a 3 ft wall separating the adjacent balcony of our neighbours. Great for chatting but not for privacy. * As far as I'm aware there were no snacks available from 21:30 onwards, the time the main Pantheon restaurant closed. There were of course bags of crisps for sale (that will be one shiny euro please). This differs from all our other IA experiences. * The insistence of some of the younger male bar staff to pass off cups of carbonated froth as drinks. I resorted, after pointing this out numerously, to asking for triple the number of fizzy drinks, letting the pop settle down and then pouring into one cup. You'd have thought I was Archimedes.More
