Louis Phaethon Beach Club

Pools are where this hotel triumphs – it’s even got its own waterpark.

It’s all about the pools at this place. On top of a huge, H-shaped one, there’s a new pool with 6 slides, added during a refurb in 2012. Rooms had a makeover at the same time and have a fresh feel. And there's modern dining, too.

When it comes to eating and drinking, highlights include an al fresco Chinese and a Viennese café. As for location, the hotel is in a quiet spot by a small beach. Paphos harbour is less than 10 minutes by bus.

There's a trio of slides to try out, and the multi-lane one is great for a race. The waterpark is only open in the summer, from 1st May to 31st October. Just so you know, you will need to be aged 8 and 1.2m tall to ride the slides.

wow what a place but avoid the shop

where to start what a great hotel first time in cyprus usually do sharm but decided to try else where. so glad we picked this hotel 18 of us in total hotel and grounds really clean and tidy plenty of sun beds for us to all lounge around together pool areas also lovely especially the kids pool which my two grandsons loved. life guards a bit over the top however their there to do a job ive never seen so many in other hotels if at all. room very clean lovely walkin shower resturant and snack bars very good with plenty of choice and always hot (loved the waffles and pancakes in the afternoon) staff a little miserable around the snack bars but main resturant and bars plus reception staff were chatty and always had a smile and happy to help.it was my birthday whilst there and it was made real special in the evening by the staff and management with flowers balloons on the table plus fizzy wine and a birthday cake (thanks to everyone for that) now for the negative about the shop if you can avoid it then do staff unhelpful and ignorant what they sell is way over priced 25 euros for a lilo when 1000 yards up the road 12 euros in a supermarket. i know the shop probably not run by the hotel but come on guys keep them in check. my grandson purchased two key rings for his parents and the miserable cow behind the counter snapped at him small bags only for soaps dont think it would have hurt to give him bags hes only 5 this is my only complaint about this hotel and will certainly be going back very soonMore

Everything we expected and more

Arriving at just gone midnight on our honeymoon, we were helped with our bags and ushered into the dining room to a variety if hot and cold snacks which were not only delicious but also fresh. All staff are extremely friendly and hard working at making the hotel a wonderful experience. The facilities and entertainment are very good and the animation team work very hard at making sure everybody has a good time. Like most other people I am covered in mosquito bites but unlike some of them I admit it's own fault for leaving the balcony door wide open in the evening. We have had a wonderful time and we are definitely going to come again next year!More


Really Nice hotel, good for a week of relaxing + activities!

We were there one week ago with whole family, celebrating 50 years wedding anniversary. Weather was perfect! People in hotel very friendly, food delicsious and a very enthusiastic, young and warm animation team! More

Great Hotel, brilliant staff

Arrived to welcome drinks and snacks, swift check in. Rooms very clean, reasonably well equipped. Great pool area, beach very rocky, beware of this if you plan swimming or any water sports, you'll need beach shoes. Animation team work very hard on daytime entertainments. Food excellent, buffet every night with large choice of different items. My only criticism would be that there aren't many Greek or Cypriot specialities on the menu. The carvery was very good, beef, lamb, pork, turkey, gammon, with all trimmings laid on. Same with desserts station. I can't see what any guest could complain about in terms of either food choice or quality. All staff were excellent, really friendly and helpful. We had a couple of family members who needed medical assistance, and the staff were very efficient and caring. Likewise thomsons wedding coordinator, Jan, very caring and supportive. The duty manager and staff lined up and shook all guests hands on departure, a lovely gesture which you don't see often. If I had one complaint about the hotel, it would be that perhaps the grounds might benefit from fogging against the mosquitoes which were in evidence at night. All in all though, I would definitely return here, as many other guests do, again and again.More
