Lived up to expectations
Me and my wife stayed 12 days in july here. As other reviews state its a place for relaxation and comfort, not entertaiment and meeting lots of new people. The servicelevel was very high, and everyone was very welcomming. Everyone from the bartenders to the maids were always polite and greeted us every day. The boys working around the sunbeds were also extremely attentative, and the level of service was very high whether you tipped them or not. We ate lunch nearly everyday in the poolrestaurant. The menu had a lot of items, i tried many of them and was not disappointed once. A tip is to share one lunchdish with your spouse, as most of them are very large, even for me who is a big eater. We only tried the a la carte in the hotel once. It was a very good meal, and the flambeechef made an excellent peppersauce as we watched. Would still recommend to go out and try other restaurants, as the quality of food was generally very high everywere we went. Recommended. I will return when im older and looking for just good service and peace and quiet.More

Excellent hotel - great place to relax!
We wanted to spend a few days relaxing away from the kids and this hotel did not disappoint. Î¤he rooms are spacious and clean and include everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel's atmosphere is quiet and relaxing which is what we were after. There is not much going on in terms of entertainment, however this wasn't a problem for us. Relaxing by the beach was the best part of our vacation. We really liked the sunbed allocation system which meant that we didn't have to worry about securing sunbeds every day. We had lunch by the pool twice and both times the food and service were excellent. Breakfast was great and we really enjoyed the view from the terrace every morning. The only negative comment I have is that dinner at the buffet restaurant was too expensive for what was offered, so we ended up dining out every night. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alion and would gladly return.More
Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary - not quite what we expected
Travelling as a party of five, we have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Alion beach hotel. The Hotel is in a good location with a great beach and just a short walk into town and harbour area. Our stay was on half board basis, as part of the Thomson A La carte range of hotels we had high expectation of the dinning at the Alion. We have stayed at many Thompson A La carte and Platinum hotels over the years and if I'm totally honest some evenings we we're disappointed with buffet selection on offer, occasionally the dishes were not replenished quickly enough and remained empty until other dishes were used up. The food was simple but tasty, although not what we normally associate with a fine dining experience. There is a flambÃ© chef but we were not sure if included in our dinning package, when we enquired about this, we were given vouchers with 10% off, so we assumed the flambÃ© dinning was extra. The public areas such as reception, bars, terraces, swimming pool, gym and all the various dining areas are excellent, lots of places to relax with drinks etc. The hotel only has 100 rooms and was full during our stay but never felt over crowded. It has a very relaxed and very friendly atmosphere with attentive and professional staff. Our party had a total of three, first floor bedrooms, one with sea view and two at the front overlooking the hotel entrance. The rooms were all identical, a reasonable size, fairly basic in design and decoration but always clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are on the small side but have all the usual necessities. This hotel is advertised as a 5 star hotel and has a lot of attributes to justify this rating but for those visitors who crave absolute 5 star luxury they may be slightly disappointed in the bathroom and bedroom currently on offer. Although for our party (particularly the room with the sea view) the rooms were perfect balance of practicality and comfort, even the rooms at the front had reasonable view over the newly refurbished front gardens. During our stay it was our 30th wedding anniversary, instead of my wife and I travelling long haul to Caribbean, Mauritius or similar we decided to treat the whole family to 2 weeks in Cyprus at the Alion beach. The anniversary date was highlighted to Thomson at time of booking, who I believe emailed the details to the hotel but for whatever reason the anniversary was totally missed by the hotel. Our anniversary came and went, not even a hand shake, expression of good wish or congratulations card from the hotel. This oversight was very disappointing but we got over it, until a week or so later I mentioned to reception that we had booked 2 late checkout rooms, which we were informed by reception were no longer available as new guests were arriving earlier than expected!!! Well, at this point I had to switch from happy holiday mode, to go complain to the manager mode. Needless to say, we got our late checkout rooms that we had paid for and an apology for the anniversary over sight. During the last week of our holiday we dined out at some of the local restaurants. Considering Ayia Napa reputation as the party capital of Cyprus withs bars and clubs etc, we found a wealth of quality restaurants the very best we found is called 'Sage' located near town centre. The food here was exceptional and the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food on offer. For traditional Cypriot food and quality fish dishes we found a lovely restaurant right on the harbour called Vassos. All things considered we had fantastic holiday, even though things did not go 100% as we would have liked. We would definitely return to the Alion but maybe on a bed and breakfast basis. The Alion is an excellent hotel with a good reputation that is well deserved.More

Lovely few days
As soon as we walked into the hotel, we were impressed. Greeted with a friendly face and looked after. The room was clean and comfortable though slightly disappointed with the air con in the room. Hotel grounds were small but very pleasant and the beach was beautiful. Hotel in a good location away from the noise but walking distance. We were only on a b&b stay but recommend the pool bar for a tasty bite to eat.More

We were recommend this hotel by our friend. We had a room at the front of the hotel which was which did not bother us not having a sea view we could be noisy watching people passing by. The hotel staff are great so helpful. Food good pool lovely, but what sold me this hotel in the first place was that you are allocated your own sun bed for you entire holiday. Heaven for me as I like to just relax and enjoy reading a good book and taking in all the sun rays. I can't fault this hotel.More
