Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Alexander the Great Beach Hotel stands on the coast in Paphos and belongs to the Kanika hotel group, owner to several other hotels in Cyprus: Limassol and Ayia Napa in particular. It is 'reasonably' luxurious, blending together traditional Greek art and a more contemporary style, which caters for all age groups, especially since it was entirely renovated in 2010. Children are also welcome here, the hotel even having a leisure club available just for them.

    Location 6.16 /10

    The Alexander the Great is located at the heart of the Kato Paphos hotel zone which unfolds along the seashore. The lively town centre and the fishing harbour are just a ten-minute walk away but we recommend you walk on the cobbled street running along the beach rather than the main road which is not very pleasant. Paphos airport is a 15-minute drive away and Larnaca's is 80 mi away, and takes an hour and a half to drive to.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The 202 guestrooms of the hotel were all renovated in 2010, guaranteeing top quality in terms of comfort and cleanliness. Decorated in warm shades of gold and red mainly, they all have a balcony (there is no guarantee of a view of the sea however), Pay TV satellite television (what a shame the renovation didn't include the screens, which could have been replaced by LCD ones), a radio, two direct international telephone lines, individual air-conditioning, a minibar, a safe, a hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers. The bathrooms are quite decent and hospitality products are provided.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    You will first be greeted by the statue of Alexander the Great himself, parading on his proudly bucking Bucephalus. The architecture from the outside is neither original nor particularly pretty but a warm feeling will assail you as soon as you step into the lobby. Soft Mediterranean tones (yellow and red ochre), elegant wrought-iron furniture, globular candles and snug sofas make up this hearty ambiance. The Alexander the Great is a nice place to be. The blend of traditional and modern art is quite a success. A pianist comes and plays a few tunes sometimes in the afternoon. The lobby extends to a terrace where the view of the sea and the Ottoman fort of Paphos is fantastic. The outdoor pool is quite large, what with a children's pool to complete it. The deckchairs are set in a U shape all around it but unfortunately they are too close to one another. The indoor pool is worth taking a dip in as it looks out onto the gardens around it and benefits from natural light coming in from the glass roof. The Aphrodite spa is reasonably-sized and rather charming, equipped as any other with treatment rooms, a hammam and a sauna. The brand used for treatments is Phytomer.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Alexander the Great puts good food on the table. All three meals are served as buffets at the Café Royal, where theme nights are organized (barbecue, Cypriot, etc) accompanied by live music. The setting is very pleasant and it is also possible to eat out on the terrace. The Limanaki tavern gives you the chance to try more local dishes and the Garibaldi serves Italian specialities. Finally, the Roxanne is dedicated to gourmet meals (you will even find foie gras on the menu). The beef is Angus-certified, which is renowned in Europe. Two bars are available, including the Pella where ice cream and other sweets are served throughout the day.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    Proud of its Blue Flag, the beach is accessible by walking across the lawns which are an extension of the swimming pool's terrace. Unfortunately, it has fallen victim to its quality and modest size (other Paphos beaches are badly maintained or full of rocks) and is therefore very busy. The water is crystal-clear and turquoise, the sand is a pale shade of gold, albeit not very fine. A watersports club is just a stone's throw from the hotel.

    To know

    The manager of the hotel, Mister Stavrou, likes to pamper his guests: you will be treated to a box of delicious Turkish delight by Geroskipou and an ultra-kitsch bottle of brandy (in the shape of the chest of Alexander the Great!) upon arrival. Some of you may be interested to know that Mister Stavrou speaks fluent French, and will be constantly telling you about the latest goings-on in the world.

      Here you have a modern hotel, but with a family clientele - an establishment where you can choose accommodations according to the size you require - (there are so many different types); the rooms of this seaside hotel do not all have a balcony. The Almyra hotel is unclassified; you should try it to get an idea of what that really means.

    • Veronica Veronica Veronica

      • Value for money 6.67
      • Location 5.78

      The Veronica offers everything you would expect of a 3 star hotel (local standards), and on paper sounds like a really nice place (moderate size, peaceful), but unfortunately in practice it hardly incites enthusiasm. Its location, which is neither right in the city centre nor on the seafront, gives it an unfortunate feeling of being neither here nor there. Its guest rooms are old fashioned, equipped with the bare minimum, and of questionable cleanliness, not to mention their facilities... It's really quite a pity, because if the entire hotel were to be done up, it would be a really pleasant place to stay.

      Families will be in their element at the Paphos Gardens. The accommodation (apartment blocks with all of the modern amenities, including a kitchenette), facilities, and leisure activities were all carefully designed to care for guests of all ages, but especially children. Couples seeking to relax in Cyprus should give this hotel a miss: there is no avoiding the multitude of children making themselves at home here. Moreover, the beach is far and not ideally situated.
