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.

a friendly well run hotel of a good standard
travelled as a couple in September.
we knew this was a family hotel with waterslides and children/adult daytime activities and, although we are not really in to this sort of thing, the reviews were good for everthing and it was a good price so we decided to go. there was one review of it being like 'Blackpool' and I would say that there was a bit of truth in that there were some big groups who were sometimes a bit loud and lively. on the whole at this time of year there were enough couples, smaller groups and families with very young children so it maintained a balance but it is probably more lively in the school holidays.
the entertainment team let you know what was happening but there was never any pressure to join in and we enjoyed trying out the music quiz while floating around on our lilo.
there are two large pools with very good lifeguards. however I think they have allocated the wrong pool for activities - surely this should be the one next to the waterslides ?? leaving the quieter pool next to the garden.
there was plenty of space in the grounds to spread out and get away from it all. never an issue to get a sunbed at any time. lovely shaded areas under the trees and our favourite spot overlooking the sea. take your beach shoes if you want to go in as its quite shallow and rocky. there is a public sandy beach 250yds away.
Rooms are adequate clean and well decorated big enough for 2/3 people and we had a nice walk in shower and a good pool/sea view room 3062.towels a bit worn and thin. NO POOL TOWELS not an issue but lots of people caught out by this one - perhaps needs to be considered and clearly mentioned in the blurb.
food is fantastic at lunch time served at the pool bar and in the Chinese open air buffet. plenty of choice and usually hot. however in the main restaurant for breakfast and evening the choice is again good but nothing is ever hot. a shame as this lets it down.
service in all areas good -reception/ restaurant / bars and managers visibly checking on things and talking to customers. even came to wave people off - a nice touch.
entertainment some of the best rep entertainment I have seen with excerpts from musicals most nights. would have preferred it outside though as the downstairs ballroom very oppressive - but that's just on my wish list.
location - it is the last hotel on the 'strip' from paphos towards the airport and is about a 40minute walk to Paphos harbour mostly on a flat promenade past all the other hotels and to stop off on one or two sandy beaches (with shower and changing facilities) for a dip. we did the walk a few times for a change of scene and to eat overlooking the harbour, often catching the regular service bus back at 1.50euros.
would probably return as we liked the location, spacious grounds and the friendly staff.
a good 4* hotel. lack of free Wi-Fi will never be an issue for me - chill out and enjoy conversation and an odd text.More
Our fabulous wedding!!
We arrived at the Phaethon on the 16th September for two weeks, we booked this hotel as part of our wedding package. We had an group of 10 staying at the same hotel, as soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome! We found the hotel was great from the food, staff and entertainment.
Our wedding day and setup was made so special for us! Our wedding advisor Debbie was lovely and so helpful!
Food - there was plenty of choice for everyone, the lunchtime Chinese was fab and was fresh and yummy
Staff- could not fault the staff they all do an amazing job and the service is great. An special thanks to Mattheus and thanasis who was always checking to make sure that everything was OK!
Drinks - all drinks were local unless you wanted to pay for branded ones, the only downside was the soft drinks which are not branded but the lemon and lime and orange juice was fine!
Entertainment- dido and his animation team did an great job, from daytime activities to cash bingo to nightly shows! My favourite was the fire show and cats! They all work extremely hard to make all the guests happy! !
Beach - perfect location for your wedding ceremony and reception, small rocky beach but still nice to go for an walk!
We also did an few excursions we hired an speed boat just at the back of the hotel and went to coral bay and blue lagoon def worth seeing! I would also recommend the under sea walking great experience
Finally would just like to say an huge thanks for making our wedding the most perfect day and have the most fab memories! So if your looking to have your wedding def look to book it here.
We are looking to come back here for our first anniversary so hope to see you all again soon!

Returning customer travelling as a family of four - age range 28-64
We have recently returned from the excellent Louis Phaethon after another very lovely holiday (stayed 6th - 13th September). Right from the moment we stepped off the bus and arrived at the hotel we were all made very welcome. Weather excellent, rooms cleaned every day, bar staff very attentive and friendly, food on a weekly rotation and plenty of it - basically you can eat from the minute you get up in the morning and eat all day at various locations. Tip - go on a diet before you leave home because you definately need to fast when you get home. My daughter is vegetarian and she was disappointed that there wasn't much variation with choice of hot meals - but she is quite picky! Animation team are very friendly and work tirelessly putting on their shows every day - I especially liked the "Piro" show and "Cats". All in all there is something you can be doing from 10am every day and can't wait to go back again next year. It's like returning to see the family - they all recognise you.More
