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.

Impressed. Honest review.

We are a young couple 28/30. The hotel was busy enough for us in October but we wouldn't come in summer as a couple as I can imagine it is super busy with families. Though, we would return with our children in the future. We got engaged during our trip so on the last night we had a free bottle of wine and some flowers at the Mezegadonia restaurant. What a nice touch! We stayed in the fishing village which is near to all bars and entertainment. The Aegean village (older part) is a short walk and looks a lot quieter and laid back. Overall had a lovely time but don't expect a couples relaxing time by the pool because there are kids everywhere. In October we thought there would be fewer kids but no such luck. Still, being a holiday village the kids entertainment is plentiful, which is what we expected. It was a last minute break, we enjoyed it but we probably wouldn't come back as a couple as we didn't relax as much as we would have liked to. We should have listened to our own advice- don't go to a family orientated hotel if you want a relaxing couples holiday. It is a holiday village catering excellently for families though. Highlights- - on arrival at 10pm we were taken to our room by golf buggy and there was food in the fridge/tea facilities. Nice touch! -room 1148 (Deluxe 2 bed apt) in the fishing village was nice, with air con. Didn't expect to pay 3 euro per day for a safe though. -Two TVs in room. Cartoon Network, itv and bbc/sky news/pick tv. - plenty of choice from all inclusive. Drinks/food all decent. Themed nights, BBQ by the pool. In the main restaurant at breakfast and dinner it is like feeding time at the zoo- very noisy and busy with children running around. We ate out a few nights to get away from it. But, the pool bar was open all day serving drinks and Ice creams. There was a pizza bar, also chips, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, salads, cheese, meats, cakes and fruit. Breakfast was full English, meats, cheese, cereal, yogurt, cakes, everything. Also omelettes and pancakes cooked fresh with your choice of ingredients. Basically- something for everyone. Though, the food was warm not hot, but there was a microwave if you don't mind warming it up yourself... Drinks included 5x cocktails, local spirits, juices and fizzy drinks. - staff friendly everywhere...the grounds are well kept and rooms are well cleaned. The maid would knock the door at 9Am on the mornings we fancied a lay in which was slightly annoying, but she was lovely and kept our room spotless. Liana was the maid and deserves a special mention as she did a great job. - evening adult bar was lovely~ no screaming kids! Drinks brought to your table- perfect. - one pool was meant to be for adults but every day it was occupied with kids. ( no life guard to enforce this). We choose this hotel for the adult pool but were disappointed with the screeching kids in the designated adult only area. Sounds harsh but there are 3 other pools for kids so to expect a bit more peace and tranquility by the promised adult only pool isn't too much to ask, I thought. There was one faded sign saying "adults pool only", which I think they should address. Also the kids pool was closed one afternoon after a child stood on the edge of the pool and urinated in so the adult pool was full of children. Nice... - the beach was a two minute walk across the road. Lovely scenery but not the best for swimming as it was very rocky. Very small coves for each individual hotels also and had sun beds for hotels (None for visitors from elsewhere). Water sports available- 60 euro for a double para sail, 30 euro for a jet ski. - entertainment in the night- lots for kids, little for adults. We went out a few times to the Wild Horse pub outside the hotel and the cocktail bar right outside the hotel where you can get a 15% discount at both. (Better cocktails than AI bar). Nice adult themed atmosphere in both, could watch the football or listen to some live music/a musical on the big screen. Also went in to town and the harbour which was 8 euro taxi each way. Not a lot In the way of bars near the hotel so town is your best bet for a trip out. Paphos castle cost 9 euro each for entry and the Harbour is a nice walk. We ate out at the rib shack- 5 mins walk from the hotels. (Jack Daniels ribs were a winner). Also at "Fiesta" again a 5 mins walk where they serve ribs/Chicken wings/ traditional Greek- everything. Also "Bucchas" at the harbour- lovely Greek food and a bit more up market. -Tombs of the Kings. Definitely worth a look. 10 euro by taxi. Wear sensible shoes and take refreshments with you as there is no where to buy on site. We walked back towards the town then as the tombs are in a bustling district. Came across a shopping centre with marks and spencer, tgi Fridays, accessorise, wagamama and a couple of other popular names from the uk. 50 + shops/designer stores for serious shoppers! - Supermarket reasonable on price- 50c small bottle of water, 2 euro for a newspaper and 2 euro for a can of red bull/ Rekordelig cider for those needing home comforts. Didn't sell inflatables for the pool though! -the spa looked lovely and clean. - Sun goes down at around 6-6.30 In October. Can't really stay around the adult pool past 4pm to sunbathe as the tall buildings block the sun around the adult pool. You'd have to move to the child pool or call it a day after about 4.30 if you wanted to sunbathe...or hit the beach to watch the sun go down we did. -don't take pool towels as they issue one per person. (We just used one of our own for the beach). -free wifi at the hotel is fast ish. - Greek night in the main restaurant was entertaining. Lots of Greek cuisine, dancers etc. something a bit different! - Lots of cats about if you're a cat person... If not, just to warn you they're everywhere- by the pool, in the out door restaurants. We are cat people and didn't mind but they definitely beg for food which I appreciate is not to some people's taste. -no need to take travel plug adapters- the sockets in the rooms fit English plugs! - hairdryer in the room, so no need to take your own.! - ate at the Mezegadonia at the aliathon plaza. Had the meze for two €17 pp with €20 off the bill, discount voucher provided by the hotel. If you want to sample Greek/Cypriot food this is a must. Far too much food for two who enjoy their food. Fantastic service, gorgeous food and a lovely atmosphere. We ate at 8pm- quiet period with no children :) All in all we had a lovely time, the weather was mostly blazing sunshine all week (one morning of cloud and showers) and we will return one day. If you're like me and always check trip advisor before you book, you'll be trawling through for negatives. I promise my review is completely honest! More

Relaxing family holiday, we will be back!

We booked the Aliathon Holiday Village for a relaxing break away from the stresses of work, whilst also celebrating our 10th Wedding anniversary. Having a 21 month old toddler also meant when looking for a holiday we needed somewhere with a kids pool, playground etc. Our apartment was lovely, just on the edge of the Agean Village and close to the main restuarant area. It had been refurbished in recent times, it was fresh in design and apprearance and immaculatly clean thanks to Marina our lovely cleaner. She would say hello to us every morning and have a little natter with our little one. The restaurant is great, always a table and an army of highchairs, always clean and ready to use. Food was excellent, plenty of choice, regularly topped up/replaced. They also had a seperate kids buffet too. The staff were attentive to clearing plates etc and there was a team of cleaning staff whom wandered round the food areas brushing up which was good, they always had to stop by our table and clean up the debris under the highchair. They were always very friendly and pleasant and would chat to the little one too, She's mastered Kalimera and Yasou at 21 months old! We only managed to eat in the Greek A la carte restaurant as the Mexican was fully booked when we came to book it. We didn't really mind too much as the food in the main buffet restaurant was so good and varied you didn't feel like you needed a change. We had lunch in the snack bar each day, the fresh pizza were amazing, then they really knocked our socks off with the BBQ (twice in the week at lunchtme!) the chicken was so succulent! Aneta here was also lovely and great with the little one too. On the bar here i can't not mention Alex, always very helpful and smiley and he made the best Bloody Mary's! The pools were great, kids pool was fantastic, enjoyed equally as much by us grown ups too (in a supervising capacity of course!) It got closed on two occassions due to a code brown! That's when very inconsiderate parents don't put their children in a swim nappy and the staff have to clean the area and it puts the pool out of use for a few hours. There are notices at the bar asking/reminding people they must use a swim nappy on their little one but some people obviously choose to ignor this. Fortunately both times it did not impact us as first time it was about 1/2 hour before the pool was closing anyway and the second time it was our last day and nearly hometime. We used the Creche and found the staff to be very good, particular mention to Yasmin and Becky. All the kids club / entertainment staff that we came across were very good in fact, always enthusiastic and smiling! The entertainment was better than expected, varied and something for everyone really. Kid's activities, Bingo, Quiz's and shows too. Again the staff worked so hard and did a great job, the main girl presenting each night could absolutely have a career in television, she was very professional! We had a letter, bottle of wine and plate of fruit left in our room for us on our Anniversary which was a lovely touch. All in all a fantastic holiday, for the first time ever we actually felt like we had been on holiday for longer than a week, it felt like we had been there ages. We would definately hope to return next year and have already mentioned it to friends with similar aged children so there might be a few more of us next time!! Book it you won't be disappointed!More

Disappointing

Just spent a week in an Aegean Superior apartment at this Hotel after it was highly recommended by the travel agent. The actual site was very clean and tidy, but the apartment was very basic and a little drab, there was no drawer storage areas, just a large wardrobe with not enough hangers for our clothes; we lived out of our suitcases all week? The main Pantheon restaurant was clean and spacious with both inside and outside dining, and although there was always plenty of food, it tended to be all the same every day and the hot food was never 'hot', just warm? The evening entertainment was absolutely rubbish, both for the children and the adults. The sound system in the Entertainment Bar was terrible, you couldn't hear what was being said, and the acts that were on were not very entertaining. The one good thing was the porter transport service, which was used to deliver your luggage to your apartment and also could be called to take you to the restaurant which was useful as my friend is disabled and has difficulty walking long distances. The Kids Club and children's water park was quite good for the 5 year old we took with us, as were the five different pool around the resort. The resort was located on the main 'strip' from Paphos, but was too far away to walk anywhere, even though there was a local bus service, it wasn't well lit at night to venue out on the bus. Overall I don't think this was very good value for money, even though we did have a free child's space. Don't think I would go back. Sorry folksMore

Janet G,

First Family Holiday

We pretty much had the worst start imaginable to a holiday in fact it was a nightmare so the fact that we are already planning to go back next year is a credit to how wonderful this hotel is. The problems at the begining where by no means the fault of the hotel and although it was stressful the holiday was still a fantastic experience and a wonderful first family Holiday Me my Wife and 2 year old son stayed at the hotel at begining of August weather was incredible couldnt have been better. The reception and welcome you get is lovely the recption are is small but spacious enough and has some rustic kinda traditon vibe to it. We arrived late at night so only got a night view of the hotel but the next day when we got up wow the grounds are incredible it is so increidbley clean i love the mix and blend between the fishing villiage and the Aegean village. The architecture and way its all laid out is fantastic We stayed in the Fishing village our room was spotless spacious the air con was fantastic my son was ill whilst out there and the air con really helped in keeping his temp down during night. My little boy loved the room quickly became his home from home which i guess is brilliant as i knew he was comfortable. The balcony was awesome with fantasic views and the noise was not a problem. Being right in the middle of the snack bar park and childrens splash park was fantasic couldnt have been in a better location. The plaza at the front is really good with plenty of little shops and things to do. The area it's self from what i saw looks beautiful We didnt have much interaction with the reps/entertainment teams as we wanted a nice quiet family holiday which is exactly what we go and we loved it. We only ate in the snack bar and the main resturant as my son is at the terrible 2 stage so we were very much grab food on the go but they are both very clean with a large selction staff and fantastic very very good comunication and are fantastic at interacting with the kids. The down sides There was nothing massive just tiny bits like on 2 occassions there were no chips or smiley faces and with my 2 year old a fussy eater we really did need the comfort of chips Drinks - selection is good but not fantastic having been on holiday earlier in the year and at that hotel had a massive selection of cocktails the menu at the Aliathon is not the best and all of my drinks were served in small plastic cups just needed that few more choices and then served in tall glasses like proper cocktails.More
