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 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 bad but not great

First of all, the good points: 1) Good accommodation 2) Good food 3) Good for kids Now, the bad points: 1) Sound system in the main entertainment hall is appalling. We walked out of the first morning meet-and-greet because we couldn't make out a word the rep was saying. This meant that the evening entertainment was also a bit of an aural blur. After a couple of days and a few drinks you adjust to hearing everything as if you're in a wind tunnel or underwater. But the reps themselves are being poorly served with this sound system. 2) The Keo beer. This is Cyprus' own brew. Nothing wrong with it if you buy in cans from the supermarket - it's a bog standard Foster's style lager. But it's watered down at the Aliathon. That's not an opinion. It's a fact. Barman even smirked when I jokingly mentioned it later in the week. 3) The other residents. A surfeit of badly tattooed chavs (imagine a queue of wannabes for The X Factor's Over 25 section, but in beachwear and pushing McLaren buggies) and very loud, untidy Liverpudlans, whose grating John Bishop-style accents cut through the tranquil sound of kids splashing and laughter, like a chainsaw on a summer's day. Metaphorically speaking, by the end of half term I fear the Aliathon would have been "up on bricks and stripped for parts".More

Exceptional... for children

If you are travelling with children (and this is after all a family oriented hotel), you would be hard pressed to find anything better. Room/apartments (we were in the Fishing Village) are huge, really well equipped, comfortable and clean. There is a vast array of things for children to do with separate events organised during the day. A mini waterpark, huge children friendly pool, play areas, children’s evening entertainment. Two quieter pools will suit the grown ups! The meals are very children friendly - large choice, not fine dining by a long way, but adequate. As you would expect most (but strangely not all) the staff are very friendly and child orientated. Although the hotel is right at the end of the tourist zone, there are very frequent, cheap, buses into the harbour and the bus station. If you are there with First Choice (as most people are) don’t book the excursions with them - local travel agents do the same trip (often using the same guides) for not much more than half the price. You can hire a car or book these trips only a few yards outside the hotel entrance, where they are a number of useful shops. It’s a very short walk to a range of bars and the beach where you can walk (around 30 minutes) along the path into Paphos itself. Although there is only a single buffet for evening meals you can use the a la carte restaurants (Greek and Mexican) one night each. We found these ok (Mexican best) but not too child friendly. You wont starve - the buffet point near the lighthouse on site serves food throughout the day. Nice barbeques at lunchtimes. Plenty of places to get drinks throughout the hotel. There are lots of other facilities I don’t mention. We wouldn’t go here (at least to the Fishing Village) without children (unless you like lots of them running round and making lots of noise), although there were quite a few people without children when we were there. Moans! Its £3 per day for the safes in the rooms and the 'hard play' area (several rides shooting games, gift machines etc.) adjacent to the evening entertainment space - great for kids but at a euro a go it’s very easy to spend 10 to 20 euro a night for not very much.More

Great for kids

We went earlier this year and had a really nice time here. food is excellent, lots of well supervised activities for kids and a clean, well maintained apartment complex. I would not describe it has high brow but it's good for family holidays and does what it says on the tin. Lovely clean pool areas and we had a great deluxe studio beside pirate ship pool which kids enjoy. I would recommend for families.More
