You get a choice of pools at this place. And in the summer months, there’s even a waterpark.
This place has a pair of huge pools. And in the summer months, a waterpark opens up. On the dining front, there’s a buffet restaurant with theme nights including Cypriot, Italian and seafood.
The hotel enjoys a quiet spot just outside central Paphos. There’s a little rocky beach behind the hotel. And it’s a 10-minute bus ride to the harbour, where cafés and tavernas line the water’s edge.

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.
Great for the kids with a climbing frame, waterfalls and slides.

First time to Paphos!
We arrived at the hotel around 11pm 7th June, upon arrival you get a check in form they send you to the restaurant to get some food and drink while you fill out your form to check in. First impressions the hotel is dated and could use a spruce up not a big deal. We didn't get any instructions as to where our room was we just had to go find it! We had a double sea view room. Cats everywhere again not a problem. There is a shop within the hotel but it's very overpriced. The food was lovely something for everyone, the only moan my partner had was that there was no pancakes at breakfast haha! 4pm everyday it's waffle and pancake time. They have a pool bar and a Chinese restaurant next to that. The food here is pretty much the same every day. Just snack eg chicken nuggets and chips and pasta and sauce. There is no beach at this hotel, it's a little bit of sand with some chair and a few sun loungers then steps down into the rocky man made sea. The sandy beach is 250m to the left of the hotel. The pools are amazing, they have the main pool we're the activities take place and then they have another big pool which is slightly deeper and attached to that is the water slide pool then they also have a children's pool. You can only use inflatables in the main pool. The gym is small but useful and the indoor pool is small but again useful if needed. They have a nightclub downstairs which is where all the shows go on and have 2 bars in reception. The cocktails were a bit naff as they didn't measure the spirits so all the cocktails just tasted like vodka or rum nothing really to them. The rooms have been updated and we found ours to be comfortable. My own problem was mosquitos, I had repellent but I still was bitten 19 times on my legs and the second day in I had cream and tablets from the pharmacy. There was flies and bugs everywhere within the hotel it was a persistent problem throughout, many people we spoke to within the hotel had also been bitten multiple times. The safe is €3 a day we paid €60 to keep our room on for the day as we didn't fly until 1:15am but this isn't guaranteed we asked the day after we got there and they said we had to ask after 6pm the day before we were checking out as they don't know the availability until the night before. The staff were all happy to help and always greeted us with a smile. The restaurant was a bit of a nightmare on a night as they only had around 6 tables for 2 people so we always got sat on a 4 table with randomers which got a little awkward at times. After reading some reviews we were expecting to arrive to crazy amount of children and it be awful. The hotel is lovely and there is a mix of families, couples and elderly. The room key has a giant metal fob that you must insert into the wall for the air con to work, we ended up taking the key fob off the key ring and keeping it in permanently and the safes are very old so you always end up with 2 keys one for the room one for the safe! There isn't anything to do around the hotel unless you go into Paphos. On our first day we walked into Paphos and it took us a good hour to get there, there is some pit stops on the road towards town. The bus is €1.50 single or €5 for a day ticket. The bus fare goes up to €2.50 after 9pm. The Aphrodite waterpark is a 5 minute walk away it cost us €60 to get in and it was the biggest let down it was utter rubbish we would recommend travelling to the big one in Limassol. Whilst out there we visited the archeological site at Paphos harbour, the castle and tombs of the kings these were good but it was far to hot to walk around then through the day make sure you take lots of sun cream and lots of water. We also visited the kings avenue mall which was amazing! We visited Paphos Zoo as well to get there from this hotel you need to get the bus from outside the hotel 611 to the bus station and then get on to the 615 bus to the end of the route and then go out to the main road and there is a free bus transfer here. The zoo cost €34 for both of us and it was our favourite day out. Overall we did enjoy our stay at this hotel, it does need a make over and we were very much over charged for our stay but I guess that's what we get for booking with First Choice. But the staff, the food and the pools are amazing! We won't stay at this hotel again and if I'm honest I don't think we would travel to Paphos again I think we will stick to Ayia Napa in the future. I hope this review helps, its not negative it's just our reflection of this hotel we understand everyone will have different opinions on it. This was just our experience of it all. Enjoy Paphos and enjoy the Louis Phaethon :) More
Cyprus holiday for a family wedding
In total a group of approx 45 people flew out to Cyprus for a family wedding. The hotel is 10/10 for kids and families with young children. There are none stop kids activities and evening entertainment suitable for kids. There are water slides and a huge variety of food served daily. In fact the food was fantastic both in the restaurant and poolside. My only criticism being the soft drinks especially the fizzy aren't very nice. All staff were very accommodating and couldn't do enough for you. They wedding planners were fantastic the wedding day ran so smoothly and all the staff were absolutely brilliant I cannot fault them. The wedding was lovely with lots of personal touches. The hotel was clean and the maid service was brilliant I cannot fault them for cleanliness and the beds were very comfy. I personally wouldn't stay here again but that's only because I don't have children and I'm a bit more of a party animal at present so don't let my thoughts put you off and I'm also a huge lover of Diet Coke so I'm being picky with the soft drinks there! They serve fresh Chinese six days a week also which is delicious!!!!!! More

Lovely hotel, location, staff....
This hotel has it all! I was very impressed by the reception staff, who immediately knew that I had requested a quiet room on a high floor, an option that Thomsons did not offer on their booking page and I had emailed the hotel for (got an immediate reply too). Super impressed with the staff, location, restaurant and food choice. Having never had an all-inclusive holiday, it felt like a bit of a gamble to go all-inclusive but my very fussy husband always found something to eat. Top marks for the quality and choice of food. Children will love this hotel and the water slides, parks etc. Entertainment was extremely good and the team were fantastic. During the day we were treated to an open-air show and the team were extremely talented, thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Also, a big thank you to the bar staff and cleaners who were lovely and provided a high quality service. Thank you, I hope to return!More
