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.

Splash pool

Great for the kids with a climbing frame, waterfalls and slides.

very good 3 star hotel

overall and excellent 3 star hotel and even 4 in certain areas however there is a downside which is the room we were in. we booked a family room which was nice but really small, in fact so small that our double bed was almost touching the two single beds this is complaint no1. complaint no 2 is that the beds were really uncomfortable and almost put my wife into a lot of pain, I ended up buying a airbed usually used in the pool and putting it on her side of the bed. apart from this we had an excellent holiday the food was well cooked and hot, and variety was good the staff were superb and couldn't do enough, as long as there were no germans in the area,they could not do enough for them, I say this because I waited 20 mins to get a drink when these people just turned up they were served straight away. but I still think this is a very good 3star hotel,i would go back but only if they changed there beds.More

The best hotel.

This hotel is THE BEST. After visiting this hotel for 37 times it just gets better and better. The Management Team, Receptionists, Restaurant Staff and Bar Staff are all first class. They cannot do enough for you. Nothing is too much trouble. The pool attendants, especially Cesar and pool bar waiter Florin are very pleasant and will pass the time of day with you with a smile and a chat. The maintenance men always say hello to you and the cleaners are absolutely excellent. The rooms are kept spotless as are all the public areas of the Hotel - inside and out. As for Dido and his animation team - Rachel S. Rachel B, Carly. Chloe. Mim. Charlotte. Jax. Louise. Danielle. Amy. Cordos. George. Emiliano and Aris - they are out of this world. These youngsters work so hard to keep us entertained from 10.00 a.m. until midnight. The shows they put on are brilliant, they could easily perform in the west end of London. They are always smiling and nothing is too much trouble for them. As i have said, THIS HOTEL IS THE BEST!!!!More

Definitely go back

Husband and I spent a week there 23rd-30th Sept to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Having been to the hotel last year we were looking forward to going back and we weren't disappointed. Lovely room....great food with plenty of choice....plenty of beds at the various pools and plenty of activities if that's what you like. We were treated to a champagne dinner for our anniversary which was a lovely touch! My one and only criticism was a barman called Marian at the pool bar who was exceptionally rude to me on more than one occasion which is a a shame as the rest of the staff were professional and friendly. Like the title said we will definitely be back with the kids...More

a friendly well run hotel of a good standard

travelled as a couple in September. we knew this was a family hotel with waterslides and children/adult daytime activities and, although we are not really in to this sort of thing, the reviews were good for everthing and it was a good price so we decided to go. there was one review of it being like 'Blackpool' and I would say that there was a bit of truth in that there were some big groups who were sometimes a bit loud and lively. on the whole at this time of year there were enough couples, smaller groups and families with very young children so it maintained a balance but it is probably more lively in the school holidays. the entertainment team let you know what was happening but there was never any pressure to join in and we enjoyed trying out the music quiz while floating around on our lilo. there are two large pools with very good lifeguards. however I think they have allocated the wrong pool for activities - surely this should be the one next to the waterslides ?? leaving the quieter pool next to the garden. there was plenty of space in the grounds to spread out and get away from it all. never an issue to get a sunbed at any time. lovely shaded areas under the trees and our favourite spot overlooking the sea. take your beach shoes if you want to go in as its quite shallow and rocky. there is a public sandy beach 250yds away. Rooms are adequate clean and well decorated big enough for 2/3 people and we had a nice walk in shower and a good pool/sea view room 3062.towels a bit worn and thin. NO POOL TOWELS not an issue but lots of people caught out by this one - perhaps needs to be considered and clearly mentioned in the blurb. food is fantastic at lunch time served at the pool bar and in the Chinese open air buffet. plenty of choice and usually hot. however in the main restaurant for breakfast and evening the choice is again good but nothing is ever hot. a shame as this lets it down. service in all areas good -reception/ restaurant / bars and managers visibly checking on things and talking to customers. even came to wave people off - a nice touch. entertainment some of the best rep entertainment I have seen with excerpts from musicals most nights. would have preferred it outside though as the downstairs ballroom very oppressive - but that's just on my wish list. location - it is the last hotel on the 'strip' from paphos towards the airport and is about a 40minute walk to Paphos harbour mostly on a flat promenade past all the other hotels and to stop off on one or two sandy beaches (with shower and changing facilities) for a dip. we did the walk a few times for a change of scene and to eat overlooking the harbour, often catching the regular service bus back at 1.50euros. would probably return as we liked the location, spacious grounds and the friendly staff. a good 4* hotel. lack of free Wi-Fi will never be an issue for me - chill out and enjoy conversation and an odd text.More
