Holiday Village Aliathon

Loading

This massive, village-style complex packs in loads of sports and activities, a triple helping of restaurants, and a splash park. Oh, and the biggest swimming pool in Cyprus…

The scene-stealer here is the pool – it’s the island’s biggest. And it sits opposite a splash park with slides and a huge pirate ship. If you’d rather swim in the sea, you’re 5 minutes’ walk from the beach.

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.

Not a good start, but turned out wonderful.

We arrived at the Aliathon Holiday Village late on a Saturday night and allocated room 605 (superior) in the Aegean Village. We were taken via buggy to our room and as soon as we stopped outside the door we didn't have a good feeling. Saturday night on the plaza (main road adjacent to the hotel) is party night and alls we could hear is the boom boom noise and could see the huge screen from the bar. When we entered the room we were nothing but shocked, it was old, tired just wasn't appealing at all, considering we had upgraded to a superior room!, the brochure describes the superior room as more modern furniture, extra tv in bedroom and balcony furniture. Well we had the extra tv and the balcony furniture (on a minute balcony with a huge tree that overhung so no sun would get to you) but the furniture was far, far from modern (think self catering Crete 30 years ago). The only good thing we had when we arrived was a nice stocked fridge because we'd arrived late there was sandwiches, cheese and biscuits, fruit, bottle of water and a bottle of wine which was a really nice touch. The light in the bedroom didn't work and the light in the bathroom flickered, in addition to allllll this the bedroom was crawling with ants! HOW THEY CAN CLASS ROOM 605 AS SUPERIOR IS TOTALLY BEYOND ME. We sat on the balcony and drank our wine and by 2am the music was still booming, so,I went to reception to complain about the noise and the room, the night receptionist wrote down my complaint and said I'd be called in the morning. The following morning we went to the welcome meeting and spoke to our first choice rep Rachel who by 10.15am knew all about my complaint and said we were being moved, phew. We moved to room 304 in a lovely location in the Aegean Village the room was still a superior, however, was worlds apart from 605. It had modern furniture, flat screen TVs and a good sized balcony, oh and no ants. After that our holiday turned out really really well, Georgie from Customer relation was helpful as was the first choice reps. All staff at the hotel were really friendly (Paul at the splash pool bar was fab) the guy who sat with the towels at the entrance to the fishing village was very funny and worked very very long hours, we saw him everywhere. Food for adults was amazing, needed more choice for kids! Pools are fantastic, reception pool had quite a lot of chlorine in it and turned our swimwear yellow, the splash pool is absolutely fantastic for the kids. Entertainment morning noon and night is by far the best iv had whilst on holiday, night time entertainment by the reps is cheesy but very very funny. They work long hours! Overall fantastic holiday and will definitely go back as long as we can have room 304!!More

Best Holiday Ever

Have been on many holidays - including cruises - but our recent stay at The Aliathon with our family was the best yet. We cannot praise highly enough the accomodation, cleanliness, staff and service. The quality, quantity and variety of food in all of the restaurants was outstanding. Being all inclusive, it came as a surprise to find that our 'room' was, in fact a studio apartment with all the facilities for a self catering holiday. We cannot give too high a praise to everybody at The Aliathon and will certainly be returning again. Many thanks to Stelios and his colleagues.More

Leslie B,

Fantastic Family Holiday

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday at the Aliathon Holiday Village. We were given an upgrade in the Aegean Village on arrival, which was very large and always kept clean by the maids (had previously emailed to say we would be celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary). This was very much appreciated especially in high season. The hotel arranged a romantic meal at the Italian restaurant (part of the dine around package) for us, which was well worth the visit, and arranged to have a cake made for us, which was delicious. The staff also left a bottle of wine, fruit & and anniversary card in our room - a lovely touch. Our children (aged 8 & 5) loved the choice of pools and the splash park and so did we! The food was good - our children especially enjoyed the chocolate fountain nights! We found the staff at the hotel very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our children enjoyed the entertainment evenings with the entertainment staff working incredibly hard, especially in the hot weather. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and hope to return again soon. We will certainly be recommending this hotel to family & friends. Many thanks to all the staff at the Aliathon for making our visit so special.More

Lucy G,

Poor Guest Relations and Customer Service for an unfortunate room allocation

Upon arrival we were allocated a ground floor room, the patio area whilst walking out at groundfloor level was actually next to a huge drop (over 10ft) making this location unsafe for our family (Son with High Functioning Autism as well as younger child). The staff quarters were situated below the drop and could be heard 'letting off steam' (foul language) which was not suitable for families to hear. The hotel management (guest relations (Georgie) and Front of House (Kostas) were approachable of the topic however had no knowledge of Autism and whilst understood the safety issues the seriousness was not given priority. After 3 days and multiple room changes impacting our entire party, we were given a suitable alternate room. However, upon checkout there was an issue with the safety deposit box (which we did not have due to room changes yet were being billed for), this issue was raised to Kostas who advised he had 'already completed a favour' for our family with regards to re-allocating rooms and the safety deposit box charges would still stand. This was very upsetting given guests safety should surely be of paramount importance ! not considered 'a favour', Kostas attitude upon our departure was one of 'you are leaving so I don't care' and he passed over a hotel issue to the First Choice Reps (who thankfully were much more understanding!). We stayed in a deluxe 1 bed apartment in the fishing village, other than a good location there was nothing deluxe about the room, in fact it was very 'tired' and in need of a little TLC. The rooms were kept clean and the cleaning staff were very friendly. The food was good, with great choice, the waiting staff and restaurant manager all worked very hard and were very helpful. It seems the 'workers' in this establishment are the ones that are keeping this hotel running in a personable, good customer service manner and the 'management' team need to reach out to their staff to learn such skills. This was our second family vacation to this hotel and unfortunately we will not be returning, not because of the issues we encountered but because of the way in which this issue was dealt with. I would encourage both the hotel and First Choice to review the descriptions of the rooms ensuring those travelling with specific needs can make informed choices as well as discussing requirements prior to arrival. I would encourage guest relations and customer facing management to seek out methods in which building successful relationships with ALL guests can be made including guests with Unseen Disabilities.More
