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.

We met some English friends who had booked a get together. After seeing some of the reviews on the internet we were a little concerned about the hotel, but once we arrived we discovered the 5 star treatment everyone gets from the minute they check-in to the minute they leave. From an amazing welcome to the lovely room (sea facing are better), the incredible range of food on offer all day, the hard working staff and the crazy entertainment team,everything is set to make an unforgettable holiday. We all enjoyed the outdoor pool areas with the handy bar, chinese restaurant and plenty of drinks on tap, our kids liked the ice cream as well as their own pools. Plenty of lifeguards on duty to make sure all is ok, so you can have a relaxing time in the sun or join in on the daily games with the entertainment staff. Beware of the food in the main restaurant or you will go home with an extra few inches on your waist!! Evening entertainment thoroughly fun, kids were happy and we all looked forward to main show after the bingo. All in all a simple wonderful place to spend a fortnight and want to book again now for next year. Well done to all the staff.More

This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and it just gets better each time - quite sad to leave with tears in our eyes. Upon arrival you receive champagne and beer and orange juice and marshmallows for the kids which is a lovely welcome from the management who are always their for you. The rooms are adequate for your needs as you only sleep in them - they are cleaned every day the staff do an implacable job. The pools are large and very clean and has a bonus of a small waterpark which my kids loved. The management and all staff are always smiling and cannot do enough for you. The food is wonderful and varied and always something even for the most fusser of eater and the Chinese restaurant is lovely. The animation team lead by Dido (probably the best dj in the world) are fantastic - they start at 10 in the morning with stretching then onto kids shuffleboard and this keeps going until 5 in the afternoon with a short break inbetween - the shows in the evening are fantastic also they do bingo which is very funny with Dido (is that mummy friend of daddy) many thanks to Dido Kelly Rachel S Rachel B Chloe Danielle Louise Charlotte Carly Jax Emil and Aris for making our holiday once again the best. They always have time to talk to you which is a lovely touch (ps can someone please find Dido a housekeeper lol) - The lifeguards are on duty from 10 until 6 which does put you at ease and they are very good at their job. This hotel has now become our second home and have already booked to come again next year. Once again many thanks for the best holiday see you next year.More
cannot fault it!
We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at The Louis Phaethon Hotel and would just like to sincerely thank all the wonderful staff for all their hard work. The food was absolutely first class with so much choice including plenty of local dishes as well as catering perfectly for the British tastebuds. The choice and quality was incredible and much appreciated. The Pool side restaurant was also brilliant especially for the children to be able to get their own ice creams, pancakes, waffles, milkshakes etc whenever they wanted to. A real special treat for them on holiday and of course everything was included within the all inclusive price. The Animation team were so entertaining and very dedicated to their profession all day long, encouraging even the shyest of guests to join in with either water polo or Zumba, ending the day with a west end style show! Our sons loved the hotels water flumes and we loved the fact that we didn't need to travel to a local public one and spend hours in the heat queuing! We would definitely recommend this hotel to families as your every need is catered for by the most charming set of staff only too ready to help you. So, a huge thank you to the gorgeous Thanasis Memos for ensuring that my family had a truly lovely and memorable holiday. They are even wanting to go back there for a week at Christmas! You won't need any spending money inside the hotel so at least once you've paid for your holiday you can relax with worrying about the budget. Please go and enjoy. Thank you, Nicola, Elliot and family xMore

5th time back.... but still feels like the first !!
Well.... Another great holiday over at the Louis Phaethon Beach Hotel !! It's been my 5th time returning & it always feels like the first..... A massive Thank you to Dido Amamou & his amazing Animation team, by far the best entertainment team you will find at any resort & the best DJ round the pool !! From the choreography through to Zumba, their evening preformances and around the pool activities, they are all great, as well are the Kids Mini Club team & the breakbreak dancers..... I'd also like to say a big Thank you to all the staff at the Louis for making our stay fantastic yet again...... Thanasis Memos & Paraskeva Paraskevas.... and i haven't even mentioned the beautiful Hotel,food & surroundings ! The only downside to this holiday is coming home, as once you've been there you dont want to leave. I'm already looking forward to my return......More

Amazing holiday we cried leaving
We arrived and straight away very very welcomed the staff were amazing and straight away we were given a meal and shown to our room which was very clean x we needed extra pillows and were bought them 5 minutes later nothing is too much trouble x the most amazing part of our holiday was the entertainment team they were outstanding working day and night to keep us all entertained with a smile constantly on their face and always time to have a chat my two girls (5&4) were in love with Danielle Chloe and Amil the whole team were amazing DIdo had us in stitches every night (is that your mummy?) thank you so much to the whole team you really made our holiday one we won't forget x the food was nice But a bit repetitive I think another restaurant would help with variety and we did miss the branded drinks like coke not cola and 7up not lemonade but that is just being fussy x you can never be bored thanks again to the team who ran activities for everyone throughout the day x we love you all and were so sad we missed the Lion King show (next year) x We also celebrated our anniversary and the restaurant laid out a special table with flowers and champaign which was very special the girls loved drinking lemonade from the glasses and the chocolate lava cake the entertainment team got wind of our celebration and we got a special diploma and were made to do a romantic dance with candles circling us it was so embarrassing but we had a giggle I think it's because we knew them all so well by the end of our holiday. I would 100% return x thankyou to all the staff x The life guards also I need to mention who were also amazing and very villiagent we felt safe with them there they worked very hard I do think though a chair would be nice for them standing round for hours isn't niceMore
