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.
Thomson Kids' Club April to October
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions three days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least two of them on duty at all times.

We will return next year definitely and I'm looking forward to itMore
Spent a week here in April to attend a wedding in the hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, rooms very clean, maid service every day. Choice of food and drink was the best I have had in any all inclusive but the efficiency and friendliness of the staff made our holiday special - so much so I have already booked to return to the Phaethon next month. Others in our party have also already booked to return next year.More

Can't thank the hotel staff enough
Lovely hotel, great food, lovely grounds, swimming pools, so much to thank this hotel for, I cannot put it into words. Unfortunately my partner was taken seriously ill on arrival at the hotel and I thank the following staff for all their help: Claudia, the beautiful Guest Service Manager, the Reception staff - Katia, George, Lana, Stella, Nadia and Ellada, Mr Thanasis F&B, Mr Mathew, Silvio the porter, all the bar and restaurant staff. Most of all a big thank you to the brave Paul who climbed across two balconies on the third floor to rescue my partner and arrange for a doctor and ambulance to be with us in minutes. The staff were so friendly, kind, caring and considerate to me during my partner's stay in hospital, nothing was too much trouble for them. Big kisses to you all. XXXMore
