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.

This is our 2nd visit to this hotel. We were here this time last year and enjoyed it so much that we booked to come back. The hotel is much the same. Great entertainment team! They couldn't work harder! Fab swimming coaches Dean and Amanda who we can't thank enough! Nice food! Good pools! Plenty of sun beds! Our room is clean and well equipped with microwave and fridge! Only this time instead of being in a ground floor apartment with easy pushchair access and a nice safe shady terrace where our toddlers could wander in and out safely we have been put on the third floor with no lift! It would be ideal for a couple or family with older children (the views from up here are great) but our children are two and three and we are totally fed up with struggling up flights of stone stairs with a double buggy, toddlers, changing bags and inflatables! We can't relax on the terrace as its in full sun and has wrought iron railings which are like a built in climbing frame for 2 active toddlers! Certainly not the easy stress free holiday we had last year! We really expected that the hotel (and First Choice Holidays) would have ensured that we were given accommodation suited to our family needs! We asked if we could move rooms but were told that none were available (Thursday) but that they might have something at the weekend! Eventually on the Sunday we were told an outright 'no'. We wouldn't return again as we wouldn't take the risk of being put in a third floor room with no lift again! Such a disappointment! More
OK, so I booked the Aliathon Holiday Village as all other reasonably decent looking hotels were fully booked and this was a cancellation so just booked it without reading any reviews. After it was booked and paid for I read up on the reviews and was slightly concerned at some reviewers comments and also that this is supposedly only for families with children, not couples or friends - this is utter nonsense! Upon arriving we were quickly checked in and taken to our room on a golf buggy with our luggage. WOW! The room was absolutely amazing. It was spotlessly clean, very modern with food made up and put in our fridge for us as we didn't arrive until 11.30pm. We had a 1st floor apartment in the Aegean Village in the Swim Up Suites block. This area of the hotel is absolutely stunning, quite quiet and very relaxing. We were overlooking the pool area which is maintained to any exceptionally high standard. The pool water was tested morning and evening and treated when needed. If you are a couple or friends then I would highly recommend the Aegeon Village area as there are hardly any kids around as they are all accommodated in the Fishing Village area which is a good 5 - 7 minute stroll away from the Aegeon Village. The staff here are so very friendly, polite and really helpful - they can't do enough for you. I never experienced one unhelpful or unhappy staff member here. Our room was cleaned immaculately every day accept for Sunday's. We were given clean towels, clean beach/towels daily and an iron/ironing board if you requested them from reception. The main restaurant was so lovely, it was clean and very smart and the small outside area with the water feature was just lovely to sit out in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was pretty good although there wasn't a massive selection of different food there was something different every day and it was always well cooked and fresh. Having travelled to many places throughout the world including 5* resorts in the Caribbean, I would definitely say this is one of my favourites and I will definitely return here again. I am very fussy with regard to hygiene and food and I would definitely give the Aliathon a 5* for these. Also, the staff's customer service is also second to none and I would also give this a 5*. Overall an excellent holiday which I highly recommend and would definitely return to and will be sad to leave in a couple of days. Our room was 2009 in the Swim Up Suites block and if you are a couple without children or friends then I would recommend requesting a room in this block. More
Good but could be better
We stayed here the last 2 weeks of August. We had a swim up room on the ground floor. This area was lovely, rooms were cleaned by Jolanda, she needs a mention as she was amazing. We chose this holiday village as we had been to the Menorca one the year before and we had really enjoyed, well Cyprus you could learn a lot from them. The first really annoying point was the entertainment pool. If you weren't out by 6am you had no hope of getting a sunbed in the beach area where you needed to be if you wanted to hear what was going on. In Menorca the reps actively removed towels placed before 9am unless you were sat on them. This stopped people putting their towels out at night etc. The pool itself was nice, not that we used it much but there are several cones in the pool where tiles have cracked etc. The kids clubs were fine, my daughter used them a few times and had a good time. Special mention to Claire ad Kieran who really seemed to care about the children and spent time saying hello etc if she saw them around the resort. The restaurants were ok but no where near as good as Menorca last year. Having said that, there was plenty of choice etc. At lunch times we mainly ate at the snack bar/bbq area. The fresh pizzas were lovely. The one gripe about this was the drinks hut at the lighthouse. Only 1 person serving and a queue of 10-20 people constantly. Yes the drinks are served in plastic cups for safety but they could do with being a bit bigger. Anyone travelling in a larger party take your own vending cup holder to carry the drinks. My daughter attended the swim academy and the stage academy. This for us was one of the best things. Both Dean and Amanda at the swimming are so good with all the kids, thank you. Sophie and Chloe at the stage academy were so lovely too, they really made my daughters holiday. Entertainment - well I cant comment on the daytime activities as we rarely got up early enough to get a sunbed. The evening entertainment was ok. To be honest a lot of it was exactly the same as last year. I think first choice need to update it a bit more than they have. This year we just felt that the guys on the stage just didn't seem to be able to get the crowd going. James was great, a fantastic sense of humour, he is wasted at this holiday village! Flo was good too, very quick witted, again probably wasted here. On our first week the beach party was held at the Aegean area, we didnt really enjoy it and couldnt understand why reviews had raved about this evening. Then the following week it was back to the normal beach area and it was so much better. We were disappointed we had missed a lot of the Tommys charity day stuff. This had been amazing last year. However we travelled on a Thursday and arrived late so missed it on week one and then as its only every 2 weeks it was then held again on the day we were leaving so we missed most of it again, shame. The location was good, the beach across the road was ok. We got a taxi into the harbour area a few times and walked back, we also went to the old town for a change. All easily accessible by a taxi at the front of the hotel for 8-10euros. There is wifi here but it drops out a lot and is very slow. All in all we did have a lovely time, but I wouldn't be in a rush to go back here again, would rather try another one of the villages. Cyprus has so much potential but just needs a few tweaks in my opinion.More

Lovely first visit
Just returning home on 18th September. Stayed in this hotel for a week, first time we've stayed in a holiday village. We stayed all inclusive, we stayed in the fishing village section of the resort. Our room 1114 was a big room with a little kitchentte and living room as well a bedroom and bathroom. The balcony for the room was huge and it even had two sun loungers aswell as a table and chairs. Our room was quite close to the pool that is in the fishing village. The pool is a big pool that is split into two sections one half is where all the day time entertainment happens and it is like a beach style entrance to the pool. The other half of the pool is deeper and there is only steps into the pool. It is in the style of a harbour and the lighthouse bar and snack bar is located in the middle of the pool. The beach is only five minutes away from the hotel. It is a nice beach a bit rocky but still nice to walk on. Paphos itself is about a 40 minute walk, but there is a bus stop across from the hotel that will take you to the harbour and centre of paphos. It is well worth a visit. The food in the main restaurant is themed every night the nicest theme night was the Asian theme as there was alot of variety to choose from. I am a fussy eater but I managed to find something on all the theme nights, drinks are all self serve in the main dining room. Will definitely look at returning to this hotel in the future.More
This hotel felt to me pretty much as a soulless body. On the positive side the club is pretty new, has nice gardens and hidden spots, very good pools and nice rooms. On the less impressive side you can count the food which is unhealthy, processed and industrial food which mostly reminded me of hospitals' food. in addition service was rather cold, receptionist wa pretty aggressive on our arrival and rooms aren't cleaned on Sunday. Most annoying part however was that we got a pool view room over watching the back of the pool's kiosk. If that's not not enough then apparently this specific pool (the nicest one actually) is closed to visitors which do not belong to one of the tour operators and that the kiosk is a pay kiosk. It is to be mentioned that in the website and the hotel book pool and kiosk are defined as part of the all inclusive services. Gym is also very dull pool down machine broken, hardly any other machine, no water provided. All in all it looks like the place got good potential but unless managerial approach will change the place will not meet up with expectations.More
