It’s all about the pools at the Louis Phaethon. On top of a huge H-shaped number, there’s a new pool that’s open during summer and notches up six waterslides, plus an indoor pool that’s open year-round. Elsewhere, the food gets a thumbs-up thanks to a buffet place with show cooking, and a Viennese café. As for location, the hotel is right on the beach and Paphos is only a short bus-ride away.

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.

Best Hotel! Take me back!!!
We went to this hotel on the 12th-19th of April 2014 and are already planning when we can return! The hotel itself was clean and the staff welcoming and friendly. The animation team were the best,running activities throughout the day and night with something for all ages. The animation team were friendly, approachable and always smiling and willing to chat. The shows they put on during the evenings were fantastic, to an excellent standard and always entertaining. My favorite was the one on Friday the 18th which was a variety show, i especially loved the water fountain sketch that they performed as it was hilarious!! One of the animation team Manuel even allowed my sister to dance a duet with him which my sister absolutely loved! The bingo, quizzes and games included everyone providing fun for all the family. Well done to Dido and the animation team! The bar staff were also friendly and talkative and the hotel's facilities provided everything you could need and more. The hotel also had a nightclub which provided a disco until 1 am which was awesome! The only downside to the hotel was the wifi is very expensive and the hotel shop sells spades but no buckets which i found very strange! All in all a lovely hotel, fantastic animation team and plenty to do! Can't wait to return to the Phaethon as it's the best hotel we have ever stayed at! Dido and the animation team should be very proud as the animation team ensure a holiday full of music, laughter and non stop activities to get involved with! xMore

We stayed at the Louis Phaethon Beach from 13th April to the 20th April 2014. Well were do i start, first i would like to say that this is the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Hotel staff on reception and bar so very friendly. We felt very comfortable and so at ease. The entertainment team were just fantastic , they were so very nice and always cheerful . My youngest daughter who is 16 was able to take part in doing a dance with one of the male dancers (Manual), thanks to dido both my daughters so enjoyed themselves after what has been a traumatic year with them losing their dad and myself my husband. So much to do to keep young children and older children occupied. Oh almost forgot adults too.(I played Archery). This is a hotel that we will definitely be booking up for again, if not this year then certainly next year. I would give this hotel 10 out of 10 .More

Our party consisted of two adults and two kids age 16 and 11 yrs so this review is based around us as a family. Firstly, the reps at our hotel were the best we've met in a Thomson hotel. Being greeted by Danni's smile at the airport set us up for the week and she soon became like a friend rather than a rep. Niki was lovely and both the girls and Neil were brilliant at their job. Danni was a godsend when we needed medical help after our eldest daughter injured her ankle on the first day and was really supportive and knowledgeable about insurance, medical facilities, documentation etc. Thanks Danni. All the hotel staff involved were fabulous from the lifeguards initiating first aid, reception and management sorting taxis, wheelchair etc. Next, the rooms are a little dated but we didn't go to Cyprus to spend our days in the room. It was clean, comfortable and had fresh towels everyday. The hotel is spotless, food is amazing all day everyday and caters for everyone. Read a review mentioning the location of the hotel being under a flight path, that goes for all the hotels along the strip so not isolated to this hotel and to be honest, its Paphos not Heathrow so not that many planes daily anyway! Pools freezing but didn't stop the kids or hubby only me! Animation team awesome at what they do and again caters for everyone. All in all, was a great week despite the medical intervention and we laughed for a week which is what life is all about!!! Thanks to all. Oh and Dido's comment "Cyprus sun with British wind" summed up the weather 13th to 20th April 2014.More

This was our 2nd time to visit Louie Phaethon. When we arrived after a long tiring journey, we were greeted at main entrance by 4 members of staff who promptly took.our bags to our rooms. We were served fruit juice and nibbles while we checked in. The food in the huge restaurant was fantastic, constantly being topped up (the only moan I would have is that the choice of fruit isn't great) The poolside restaurant wasn't open or the slides, which was a shame as it was Easter hol time. The entertainment for children is very good, but not a lot for adults to do. The outdoor pools are a fantastic size, but hardly anybody used them because the water was freezing! I'm sure it's different during the Summer. On our second day the maid left a plate of fruit and a minature bottle of wine along with a "welcome back" letter from the management. The staff are very efficent, with a ready smile, they just cannot do enough for you. We visited the beautiful Paphos harbour, but the visit was spoilt by the restaurant staff and people trying to sell boat trips constantly haggling us. It actually turned out to be quite a stressful experience, but the pelicans were a sight to behold. One word of warning, we went on a Love Cyprus trip which cost over £330 for 8 of us. What a rip off, it was a wine tasting/buying day out, don't do it! The last time went, we did George's bus funday which was laughter all the way. Louie Phaethon hotel is brill, we'll be back!More
