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 pick 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.

Amazing Holiday..returning again!
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the fishing village last June. We went with our 2 children aged 3 and 17 months at the time. Overall the place is fantastic! Accomodation The room was located slightly away from the main pool in the fishing village which was fine for us as we had young children with us so was away from any noise from pool when they had a sleep. The room was large and well equipped. The double bed in main room was big and comfy and the air conditioning is controlled separately to that in the rest of the apartment. There were 2 sets of doors off this room, one to the main balcony and one to a small balcony on the opposite side. The living room had a small pull out bed in, suitable for a child or a small adult, and a couch to sleep on. The bathroom had a bath with a shower over it and the shower was good and powerful. The cleaner came every day and would happily leave us towels if we didn't need her on that particular day. Restaurants The main buffet restaurant had a good range of food choice, with a different themed night every night. There was a separate section for children. The drinks are all self serve too which makes it easier than having to wait for drinks to arrive. The Mexican restaurant we ate at twice, did have some reservations as had read some not so great reviews, however we couldn't of been more wrong to have these as the food was lovely! Large portions and a separate menu for the kids. Sangria was excellent! The Greek restaurant we found to be excellent on the first visit and good on the second visit but not quite enough to match up to first as food wasn't as good. The kids menu is the same here as in the Mexican restaurant, but the kids portions are huge! Entertainment The entertainment team work really hard to ensure there are activities throughout the day but not in a way that is intrusive if you don't want to be involved. The evening entertainment I cannot comment on really passed the kids party at the start of the night as we didn't stay due to ours being too tired, so we would head back to the room and sit on balcony. There are a few themed nights for entertainment too, the beach party was excellent, there are cinema evenings both with added extras food and drink wise all included in the package. Bars Generally we didn't have too much in the way of issues at the bars except sometimes of an evening there could be quite a large queue in the entertainment hall as not always enough staff on, would perhaps be useful if could have a self serve area for beer and wine as the queue was held up mainly by cocktail requests. Pools There are three pools, kids splash pool, main pool in fishing village and smaller pool in aegean village. The temperature of the pools are fine and I don't like getting in cold water!! The splash pool is fantastic for little ones, lifeguard on the larger slide at times but not always. Sunbeds were easy to come by at all times of the day and we stayed the first 2 weeks of June. We have booked again to return this year as it was brilliant for the kids with the staff very helpful!More
Stayed May 2016
Fantastic holiday. KidsDen Fishing Village apartment was very spacious and worked well for family of 5. Food in restaurant was OK. Good choice of snacks at snack bar by the pool and amazing pizza! Big pool was a little chilly, but nice to get out of the heat. Shame it was closed 2 out of our 7 days! Evening entertainment was good for the very little children - not been to a holiday village before so cannot comment on whether this type of entertainment is the norm for HV's. Regular bus down to the Harbour / Bus Station - with lots of other destinations at easy reach on various buses. Recommend getting an all day bus ticket which is cheap and you can go anywhere with it. Whole village is picture perfect and very clean and tidy, would definitely recommend and return.More
Coming for 4th year running
We are now in unchartered territory as a holidaying family, we have never been back to the same place 4 times but find ourselves booked and excited about returning to the Aliathon for the 4th year running. There is something that really appeals to us in the layout of the complex, it's low rise and spread out so even in peak you don't feel like you have people all over you. There is the usual sun lounger wars but you will get that wherever you go in August so it's just a case of realising that if you want a sunbed in a prime position you need to get there before the other 2000 people who want one do. Common sense I feel. The pools are expansive and clean, we just love the scale of them. Entertainment team in 2016 were also top notch, led by James. We have seen varying quality First Choice teams and this year was the most professional by far, they were a credit to the brand. New head chef so a slightly different approach than previous years and if I am honest the food quality dropped a little. Not by a significant amount but it felt more limited than previous years. As lifers we know what night has what theme and when to book the other restaurants, and for the first time we actually had a great meal in the Mexican. The Italian was great as always, and we missed the Greek restaurant as we couldn't get in. Glad to see that the annual repairs program is underway as the pools were showing signs of heavy use as you would expect of any volume hotel - some missing tiles and general wear and tear but this all seems to be in hand. The reception team are real stars, and we had the privilege of spending some time with the manager when a couple in our party got stranded in their car in the mountains... with no mobile signal! Reception were fab and remained calm throughout and the incident was successfully resolved. (thank you!!!). My kids don't ask where we are going on holiday any more, they just ask when we are coming back to the Aliathon, and that suits me just fine. Love the staff and this hotel, love Cyprus and can't wait to get back in August. See you all then and thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks in 2016. The Gibson family. More

We keep going back for more....
We have been holidaying here since 2008 with our first child, missing a couple of years when my wife was pregnant with our next two children. All I can say is that you will be hard pushed to find a better, family friendly environment with great food and friendly people who go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect. Having holidayed here for a number of years we know many of the staff by name and they always recognise us when we return. Having so many people to deal with each year, this really is a nice gesture that they recognise you from previous visits. Location wise it is a 25 minute walk out of the harbour or the bus is readily available outside of the hotel complex. It boasts all of the usual amenities that one would expect and has onsite swimming instructors and football coaches for the children. There is a vary array of food on offer on the evenings and I have never found that I have been unable to eat (I am a bit of a fussy eater or so I am told!). The food is always fresh and plentiful and if they have run out of something, the waiting staff are only too obliged to go and ensure that more of what you need is available. I really cannot fault this place which is why we return year on year.More
We have two young children and the whole place made our experience stress free! Only gripe was bland food at the Greek and Mexican restaurants. Italian was amazing! Buffet food was good and kids loved evening kids show. Would go back in a heart beat!More
