I am truely lost for words that this hotel has very few negative reviews. Currently sitting in the hotel lobby trying to find flights back home after just arriving yesterday. This is by far the worst hotel I have ever seen.

The hotel room is disgusting, very dirty scum all round the bath had to wear flip flops just into the shower. Room furniture is falling apart! This hotel is in real need of refurbishment desperately!!!

It seems to attract those with low standards and expectations who enjoy holidays in Butlins! It is literally Butlins in the sun! This is NOT a 4* hotel it is equivilant to 1*. The only plus side is that the staff are friendly. Computers for internet access is rubbish.

The hotel is far from anywhere need to take a 20min bus ride to the main part. It is the last hotel on the strip and probably the worst. I advice anyone with some standards to not stay here or even in paphos the beach here is not what I'd call a beech it is literally a waste land with dirty water. Also I advice anyone not ot book through first choice or Thomson.

It appears all their hotels are of this same standard. Do not believe the above reviews they are written by the common english person who doesn't holiday frequently. Please do not believe the photos online the rooms do not look anything like them. Ok rant over!

We stayed at this hotel for 11 nights and wished we had booked for longer.

The staff are friendly and helpful.

The food and drink are very good. Different choices for the kids if needed.

Choice of English food or Cypriot.

The Animation Team are fantastic, they are encouraging but not too pushy.

The swimming pools and water park are brilliant. Perfect for the children.

Indoor swimming pool and sauna etc very good.

The phaethon hotel is a really good hotel with good layout. Big pool and pool area with nice grassy area in front of sea to relax and sunbathe. The entertainment is based around the hotel animation team who really work hard with a couple of nights with guest artists. Or you can enjoy recorded music around the bar inside and out.

I must say all the bar staff and restaurant staff were brilliant. All inclusive drinks were of a good standard and really recommend due to drinks being expensive.

The food in the hotel was generally good as well although breakfast could be better. Alittle bit out of the way but there is a bus service into Paphos every half hour or you can walk it in about 45 minutes.

All in all we would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is the best one you'll find in Paphos. The food = fantastic, theres a varity for everyone. The bars/night club/resterant = exallent. Staff = frienly and will deal with any requests you have. Pool = big and my child loved it.

Animation team are really good they encoured you to join in but wern't to pushy. The shops are a 15min walk and there is a bus stop right outside if you want to visit the town.

We thought the hotel was fantastic and are returing in Aug 2010.

Make sure you take your mozzie spray

"Holiday was absolutely fabulous, staff were all very friendly and helpful, animation team we..."

Holiday was absolutely fabulous, staff were all very friendly and helpful, animation team were fab, went to the shows every night and they were pretty good, night club after the shows was pretty quiet but played a huge expanse of music (70s, 80s, 90s, pop, garage, hip hop, rock) games in the morning and afternoon were fun, included everyone that was around, gave out diplomas every night for winners of the activities in the afternoons, vast expanse of games eg rifle shooting, boules, shuffle board, darts etc. Indoor swimming pool was kept clean and lifeguard was very friendly, absolutely fab holiday, the whole family didn't want to leave at the end of the week! Would recommend this hotel to anyone that wanted to stay in Cyprus, pretty nice weather for February but still a bit too cold to go in the outdoor pool! All inclusive is the way to go here as you can go into the restaurant whenever you want and have snacks like fish and chips etc and ice cream so very suitable for children. So all in all one of the best holidays I've ever been on!:D

Large Hotel, the food was excellent. The reception area was also very good. Can not understand the dress code for evening meal, designer 3/4 trousers no good (if I had them), cheap track suit bottoms fine as long as they are ankle length, and football shirt, just about sums up the hotel. Great for parents that want to forget about the kids and let them look after themselves, as most were on AI, I think they ate chips and burger 3 times a day, helping themselves. Beach in front of Hotel poor, though 150yards to the left a beach and large sandy shallow area away from the hotel pool, sadly most of the kids probably did not get taken this far. Also do not forget the Mozzy repellent, they were everywhere. I think a previous report suggested it was a working class hotel for families, which is a fair description, poor music from inadequate sound systems blarting out all the time. The hotels just up the road looked a different class- Ledra beach, Cypria Maris, Cypria Bay.

THE HOLIDAY OVERALL WAS EXCELLENT. THE HOTEL WAS CLEAN AND STAFF VERY HELPFUL, THE MEALS THOUGHOUT THE DAY WERE BRILLIANT, SO MUCH TO CHOOSE FROM AND A CARVERY TO DIE FOR AT NIGHT. THE BAR STAFF ARE AT YOUR BECKONING CALL ALL THE TIME, NO NEED TO QUEUE, THEY COME TO YOU. THE ANIMATION TEAM DID WELL DURING THE DAY AND AT NIGHT, THEY GIVE OUT DIPLOMAS TO ALL WINNERS OF EVENTS DONE THAT DAY EVERY EVENING. THE MUSIC SYSTEM AND LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT COULD DO WITH BEING BROUGHT UP TO DATE, THE MALE SINGER CAME EVERY WEEK AND TRIED TO SING (PITY HE DIDN'T KNOW MOST OF THE WORDS). THE MUSIC SYSTEM PLAYED 60s/70s/VERY EARLY 80s MUSIC EVERY NIGHT (THEY ONLY HAD 2 TAPES) SO YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW WE FELT AFTER 3 WEEKS. THE BUSES RUN EVERY 10 MINUTES. DO THE JEEP SAFARI TRIP, UP TO THE TROODOS MOUNTAINS AND THE 1 DAY TRIP TO EYGPT (CAR HORNS GALORE). AT XMAS SANTA COMES AND GIVES ALL THE CHILDREN PRESENTS. THIS HOTEL IS A MUST, ESPECIALLY AT XMAS.

I heard someone at the pool describe this as a working class hotel for families, and that sums it up. The food IS excellent, but served up in a restaurant very much like a canteen. The bar, restaurant and other staff are excellent. The animation team do an excellent job in the day with various activities, but they also provide ABYSMAL evening entertainment which is over-run with children and follows a daily bingo session! Equally, in the bar, from about 7pm, a music system plays appalling mucic too loudly from speakers which distort the sound. All of the public toilets seem to have wet floors and in almost all of them, including in the bedrooms, the bottom 6' of the door frame has rotted away. The bedrooom curtains are riddled with holes and look extremely tatty. Shorts are a no-no at dinner - long trousers must be worn. Good, but you soon find out that many guests wear jeans, and I have never seen so many football shirts. Therefore the impression that you get when told to wear long trousers that it is a fairly smart restaurant is quickly dispelled. Given that we went in September, when the schools had gone back, we were surprised to see so many children of school age. These of course are children with parents who care more about the price of their holidays that their childrens' education, and the behaviour of the children clearly reflects that. At just under £1,000 pp for two weeks it is not cheap and we found that by travelling as an independent traveller you can get far superior accommodation for the same price. My advice to any couples looking for a holiday with entertainment is to avoid this hotel. It is also at least 15 minutes from any shops and a long walk or a (50c) bus ride from the town and entertainment.

We canot complain about eanythig. Our holliday was fantastic. The bar staff are constantly topping up your drinks. If you are out at the pool or on the beach as the hotel is right on the beach you have access to all your drinks and food. The two weeks that we spent at the hotel we never heard of anyone suffering from tummy problems or diarrhoea problems. The pool is clean and one of the staff tests the water daily. The only thing that was a problem to myself is that as we traveled in august and the weather was hot i did not take any long trousers with me. Only to find out on arrival at the hotel that you have to have long trousers on for the evening meal. They did allow me in in my shorts as it was my first evening but the next day i had to go into town to purchase some trousers. Tree quarters are a no no.

I booked this holiday from the Internet as a late deal just 5 weeks before going
and could not fault it. The Hotel is lovely with so many bars and eateries to choose from. There was also a very good selection of vegetarian foods which is unusual for an All Inclusive deal. The staff are all so friendly and the entertainment is very good. It felt safe to allow our 15 year old daughter and her friend to do their own thing at night, and they enjoyed it as there were various areas they could go to. The pool bar and restaurant are great as you serve yourself soft drinks and beers which in the heat is wonderful. The town is a bit too far to walk to but the local bus only costs 50 cents each and runs every 15 mins up to 11pm. My only complaint would be the weight you can put on during a holiday here, as the choice of food makes it all difficult to resist.

This was a surprise holiday off my partner for my 40th birthday. It turned out to be a holiday of a lifetime we only wished we had gone for 2 weeks instead of 1. Every aspect of the holiday was perfect from maid service to food and the barstaff were extremely attentive to our needs especially Demetri. This is a place I would love to visit in the near future with my children. We had entertainment day and night which ranged from rifle shooting to ballroom dancing and bingo a wide range to suit most people. The leisure facilities were excellent. All in all a BRILLIANT holiday and one I definetly wish to repeat.

This was the best holiday we have had. Got involved with the daytime activities as staff were so friendly. Big thanks to Zarbout and Stef on the 'animation team' who made sure everyone that wanted to join in, had the chance. Brilliant for families and met loads of people on their 2nd visit to this hotel. Phaethon is situated about a mile or so out of Paphos town centre, but plenty of nice clean buses if you want to go and do some shopping. Tried to book again for next year, but can't get in!!!

"'A wonderful place to stay' couldn't do this hotel justice. It is briliant! W..."

'A wonderful place to stay' couldn't do this hotel justice. It is briliant! We had a six year old and two fifteen year olds with four adults.
I had emailed the manager previously regarding the roadworks and a few other concerns that we had heard about. Winin 24 hours we had lovely welcoming replies and we were rest assured that there would be nothing to be worried about.
We arrived exhausted about 3am so just crashed out in bed. We woke up, pulled back the doors on the balcony to a lovely view of the sea and spotlessly clean surrounding with only the sound of the birds.

On the reception were wonderful staff,nothing was too much trouble. The whole place just gleamed! We went into the main restaurant. My goodness!!!! Don't expect to go home the same weight as you went, you won't! The catered for absolutely everyone. I couldn't begin to tell you how much varity of food there was. It was first class! There was even an area with a platform for children to be able to see the food for themselves. The staff were so friendly and it seemed as though we had known them ages.The head chef calved up the huge joints for delicious roast dinners. It just couldn't be faulted in any way.

Every meal we had was wonderful and you can have as much of it as you want in a spacious air condition restaurant or the snack bar near the pool. Look out for Yoesph and Alun in the cocktail/snack bar- great guys, we had some fun with them!Also the lasses in the Vienna Cafe, very late in the evening.

The entertainment was very professional. So much variety, aimed to please everyone. Well done to Hallett, Stef, Dan and team.They are a credit to the Hotel, as are all the staff.We played Bingo, or should I say,'Bingo, Bongo, Bongo, as Hallett calls it. We don't play at home so we thought it would be fun. We won on the second night, £45 and then twice more for a line! Great! It payed for our paragliding and jet skiing!

If you forget something, don't worry. There is a brilliant shop in the hotel that does everything,lotions, potions, you name it, it's got it- even sandles for £5.00 for children and adults.Films delveloped in a matter of three hours.

The roadworks did not affect us at all. In fact, it was quite funny really watching it all going on. We got the bus just down the road, air conditioned too and for about 50 pence you can go for miles. We hired taxis's some days, stretched lomos, in fact. It cost us a fiver for seven of us to be taken into town.All part of the fun!

Apparently, George's fun bus is something to do that can't be missed... but we did, through lack of time. We hired a Trooper for the day. Money well spent too. Make sure when you visit the monestries that you take a long skirt cos we forgot and had to hire them and trousers for the men....yes, hire them! £1.00 a piece...good value too, ha, ha! That chap had that job wayed up!

Anyway, I could go on and on about this hotel. The only thing that was out of order was......the fact that we had to come back home!!!!!!! Go on,it's the best!!!!

"This holiday was our 8th visit in 6 years to Phaethon,(what does that tell you already) soon..."

This holiday was our 8th visit in 6 years to Phaethon,(what does that tell you already) soon to be our 9th in summer of 2002. Its become our home away from home. The kids love it theres something for all ages. The animation team who provide daytime and evening entertainment have always been excellent and work very hard. The evening entertainment starts off with a mini disco with the kids reps for the little ones followed by bingo (in which you can win large sums of money) then a show which is performed by the animation team then the nite is finished off with a late disco which finishes in the early hours of the morning.The hotel staff are extremely friendly and nothing is to much trouble . the large outside pool is kept clean, further down there is an outside restraunt and on the beach there is a pier for those who liked to do a bit of fishing and also the oppurtunity to take part in some watersports which includes paragliding, windsurfing, water skiing, the donhuts, the banna boat, pedelos, canoes they also organise a day trip out on the speed boat to go n see the best parts of paphos you also get the chance to see turtles.Now back to the hotel there is an indoor pool with sauna, steam room jacuzzi, gym and even the chance to book a massage for the more active there are tennis, volleyball and basketball courts you can also hire out bicycles and at winter there is the opportunity to play bowles the food in the hotel is brilliant and at christmas and new year the hotels gala dinners have to be eaten to be believed. Paphos itself is FAB the shops are great the restraunts are delicious they even have mcdonalds n pizza huts so u wont go without and theres night life for all you clubbers and ravers its really cheap n u get free drinks n shots everywhere u go if your lucky you can even get free entrance to some of the clubs which sometimes have special guests like dj ez and pied piper and other well known djs and mcs which usually come over from aygia napa. SO DONT MISS OUT!!! but as i say if u cant be bothered going out there is always the club inside the hotel! Phaethon has everything you need for a fab holiday everyone we know has always gone back!!!! we are practicly addicted to the place! if you decide to go we hope u enjoy it as much as we do, and who knows we might even see you there!!!

This holiday was excellent with plenty of organised entertainment during the day such as water polo, pool gamnes, basketball etc. The animation team organised evening entertainment every evening which was excellent. For the children there were kids clubs twice a day with a mini disco every evening. There was also t-shirt and silk painting. The all inclusive aspect was well worth it with unlimited food, drink and ice cream. The hotel was clean and we had a maid service every day.It is a little bit away from the harbour area but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel which is very cheap.
