Holiday Village Aliathon

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.

Superb family holiday

Have just returned from a wonderful week away at the Aliathon Holiday Village. Travelled as a family (two adults, one three year old daughter). Accommodation We stayed in the Aegean Village. This is the quieter part of the site, but only a couple of minutes away from the main and splash pools. There is also a smaller and quieter pool in the middle of the village. The room was nice and clean with daily maid service. Kitchenette was included but we stayed all inclusive so never used it. Decent shower. Had one or two giant ants come in at night but I don't recognise the insect horror stories on other reviews. Food and drink Breakfast, lunch and dinner were served daily in the Pantheon restaurant with a huge selection. It's all help yourself buffet. Breakfast in particular was incredible with an absolutely massive selection of cooked full English, cereals, breads, cold meats and cheeses, omelettes to order pancakes, yoghurts... can't really think of what else they could possibly have included! Dinner was a different theme night. Tex Mex was particularly good! Children had a separate selection but you could mix in from the adult choices. During the day a buffet was also always available at the Karnyeiro (sp?) at the lighthouse. This was mostly fried food (chips, nuggets etc.) but there was always salad and fruit. Unlimited soft and alcoholic drinks from a number of bars around the site. We also ate out a couple of nights at the Mexican and Greek restaurants (included in the package). Huge, generous portions and would strongly recommend the Kleftiko! Pools The main pool is absolutely huge with a nice wide gentle sloping section to splash about in with the kids and a quieter side to swim in as well. There's always fun and games going on at the pool throughout the day (e.g. water cricket, dancing, quiz, poker) which you can get involved in is much or as little as you want. Music is usually playing. If you want a quieter swim head to the Aegean Pool. The splash pool is nearby and has all sorts of slides and fun things to keep the kids entertained. Our daughter absolutely loved it. Entertainment The reps did a fantastic job all week keeping us entertained and happy (huge thanks to Miles, James, Kezza, Rob, Liam and everyone else!). Throughout the day there are games and fun things happening poolside. There are kids clubs on during the day with a number of different themed sessions (dinosaurs, pirates etc.) which you can dip in and out of. In the evening there is a full on dancing and games show in the main hall for the younger kids which our daughter loved. They manage to keep it fairly entertaining for adults as well which is a tricky balance to get right! Spa We had a couple of massages in the spa which were very good and fairly priced. There's a gym and indoor pool as well although it didn't seem to be heated and the Jacuzzi wasn't working when we went in. Paphos A fairly rocky beach is five minutes walk from the hotel and from here you can walk right along the coast into Paphos town centre. but if you want sandy it's well worth getting the bus to Coral Bay (half an hour away). Lovely clear and gentle water. There's a lot to see and do in Paphos itself. We especially liked the castle and the Tombs of the Kings. Just a shame we didn't have more time to take more trips! Overall, this was a wonderful, relaxing and great value family break and I would strongly recommend! Top positives: 1. The pools - Really good mix of fun and tranquil 2. The kids club - Our daughter really enjoyed it and the reps were fantastic 3. The weather - It was only April but already temperatures were up to 27/28 most days. Top negatives: Not really negatives but a few things to possibly consider: 1. The food selections might be a bit limiting if you're a vegetarian. Even a lot of the pasta or rice salads had meat mixed in. 2. Some slightly healthier options at the poolside would also be good. 3. In a few places it would help to adapt the facilities slightly for younger kids e.g. steps so they can reach the sinks in the bathroom, smaller toilet seats.More

Excellent escape!

I travelled with my 4 year old son and 73 year old mum and this was a perfect location for all our age ranges. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Accommodation: We stayed at the Fishing Village, which is the newer part of the complex. This is the end that hosts the most activities, daytime & evening. The rooms were lovely and cleaned everyday (other than Sundays). We were in 1206 which was on the 1st floor and overlooked the lighthouse. As I'm 6 months pregnant, my son and I shared the king size bed and my mum was on a child's bed in the lounge. But an adult fit fine on this and it worked really well. We all slept brilliantly. The first floor rooms in the Fishing Village seemed to have better balconies offering good views and sunshine as well as shade throughout the day, whereas the ground floor ones seemed a bit dark. Personal preference though, that might be what you're after. Pools: The choice of pools meant there was enough to occupy my son all day and quiet spots for my mum to relax in peace. The splash pool is so much fun. Pirate ship, plenty of slides, shallow waters so parents could be with their little ones at all times. There were lots of people there with babies who seemed to enjoy this very much too. There was also a beach effect pool by the lighthouse which was shallow for a long way out. This was a bit livelier and where the holiday reps did most of their water activities, quizzes etc. There is music on at this pool for the majority of the day. There's a lagoon pool in the Aegean Village which is part of the Time to Smile section. We just popped into this pool one day, it seemed very nice and very quiet but we didn't stay long. The pool we spent most days at was the bog standard rectangular one in the Aegean Village. As there was an ample sized small pool next to the main pool it meant that I could swim and always be able to see my son. It was a really safe place to spend the day. My son made lots of friends in this particular pool. It seemed like the slightly older children for this time of year (approx 4 years old) would hang out here. It was lovely. There's no music at this pool so it's quieter if that's what you're after and the seating arrangements around the pool meant there are no blind spots, so you could get your relaxing done too, no problem! :) For all the pools we were at there were plenty of beds available. It could have been because we travelled out of season, but the reps said even in the height of the summer there's still plenty of availability as it's such a big resort. Food: We were all inclusive and every evening was a different theme. I felt there was a good selection of cold / cooked / children's food. There is a snack bar as well as lunch restaurant during the day. We would grab lunch from the snack bar and bring it back to the Aegean Village pool where there was also plenty of shaded tables to eat at. Breakfast was very good. The choice was extremely varied. As part of the A/I we got 2 x vouchers to eat at one of the restaurants attached to the complex. The choice was between the Mexican or Aegean restaurant. We didn't go to either though as we were happy with the normal restaurant each night. Entertainment: The holiday reps were all brilliant. We didn't make use of the kids club but went to the evening entertainment, which was between 7pm-9pm, followed by bingo. I've stayed at places before where the children's entertainment doesn't start until 9pm so these times were really really good for our son. The entertainment itself was funny and the children loved it, especially when they had to get their parents involved too! Lots of fun. Location: The holiday village isn/t directly on the beach but is only a 5 minute walk across the road. The beach itself isn't great for accessing the sea for a swim at it's not a sandy one, but we didn't find this to be an issue at all as there was so much going on in the complex itself. Paphos harbour and main town is about a 45 min walk away, so too far for the little ones (unless you've got a buggy). You can walk along the sea front the whole way, which is really scenic. Otherwise the 611 bus runs pretty much door to door from Aliathon Village into town and is €1.50 per person each way (free for under 5's) and takes about 10/15 minutes. I would definitely recommend this holiday village and think you could go here as a couple as well as family as there appeared to be sectioned off spaces for either. There also seemed to be a lot going on for children of all ages.More

BRILLIANT! A MUST VISIT FOR FAMILIES

Location is brilliant, 20 mins from the airport by coach Staff: so very lovely, nothing was too much and with an allergy child this can prove difficult. in the restaurant the food was different every night, with different themes. it was always fresh and hot, and extremely yummy. the restaurant manager was always on hand and on many occasions catered for our individual needs, we even had special food in our fridge on arrival we had a car take us to our apartment, which was lovely. the room was spacious and clean, our swim up pool was lovely, clean and our part at its own bar Entertainment: second to none. always something going on, in the evenings it was a good mix of adult/child humour. the team work tirelessly all day, james kezza and all the team really are extremely talented and dedicated. the swimming lessons are a must! kids club was very good, different to anything ive seen before. lifeguard was always present at the kids pool which was brill and he was fantastic with our little boy, made him confident. location is close to the beach, shops and pharmacy which was handy. bus stop outside takes you to the harbour every 15-20 mins and this was 5 euros. all in all I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you have children.More

Perfect holiday destination ( also for family with kids)

Ok first timer in booking an apartment. We stayed in the Time to Smile part of the park and let me tel you, it was perfect. Brand new apartment, pool in forn of the terras, and very friendly personell to help you with whatever you need. All in all the breakfast was a bit hectic ( large room in the other part of the park) but het time to Smile section will get their own breakfast area so that will improve. The Aliathon restaurants were also nice and also priced very reasonable! All in all a prefect holiday end of April, with temperatures right for kids and prices OK just before the high season starts! Thank you Panos and Maria for the nice stay. More
