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.

My family and I stayed here for a week in May. My partner and I are both 27 and we have a 9 year old and a 6month old.
This hotel is fabulous, not perfect but I would definitely consider staying here again or advising people to do so. Food was lovely! So much choice and served right throughout the day. In fact at tea times we were often at the back end of the opening times and the last to be there, however the hotel staff were still bringing out freshly made food!
Pools were great just a bit cold! Only downside was a couple of the lifeguards. In particular the one working in the indoor pool. He was abrupt with some of the children, which I witnessed. The other slight downsides was the room size. We are a family of 4 and struggled for room with a double bed, single bed, cot, 2 suitcases and a pram! There was also a family of ants in our room around the door frames. These points did not dampen our holiday though! We had a brilliant time!
Noticeably the hotel did not skimp on the alcohol! And it was acceptable to ask for a few drinks at a time and a varied range of drinks and cocktails were available even mocktails for the kids, including a Micky mouse and a Shirley Temple!
We came here on a wedding party and the day was lovely. There seemed to be 2 weddings a day apart from on a Sunday. I don't think I'd go here though just as a family it would have to attend a wedding as this hotel seems to have a big wedding theme and couldn't imagine staying there without going to one myself. Just a personal feeling while staying there.
Would recommend getting a taxi (â¬8) to the local harbour as there is so many lovely hotels and bars there. Also shops for souvenirs and holiday essentials.
Amazing hotel for families
We are a family of 6 and have just got back from the best holiday ever.
We stayed for 11 nights and enjoyed every moment we were there for, from arrival to departure (well ok not departure we didn't want to leave). I even said I would work to stay.
When we arrived which was about 23.40hrs we were greeted and shown to the restaurant where we were offered drink and some food very much welcomed after a day of travelling.
Then after filling out paperwork we were shown to our rooms, after reading some of the reviews we were not to sure what to expect. When walked in to the room it was better than how some of the reviews said that they were, beds were fine we all slept really well ok they not 5 star accommodation but we were on holiday a room is just for sleeping not for hanging around in.
All the staff at the hotel be it a cleaner, bellhop, life guard, receptionist, restaurant or bar person all were amazing and helpful be it for advice or a problem that needed to be sorted. The animation team who all help with the running of fun games through the day and do full on singing and dancing numbers in the evening which were all very well done ok there was 1 evening they repeated some songs but this was because the act that was meant to have been on got delayed so some show is better than no show. So well done guy's for covering it. Was happy that we came home with 4 diplomers and a bottle of bubbly for archery and swim race. So thank you dido and the team. To the management team in the restaurant and lobby whom all would speak and make sure you are comfortable and having a great time all seem to remember you, what you like to drink and where you like to sit for your meals, it's a nice touch.
The food is always fresh from the fruits to the carvery the food is beautiful and taste superb and the desserts are amazing lava cake with custard is to die for, you would struggle to find something not to eat, my kids are as fussy as they can be partly because I am so fussy but anyway they still ate loads.
The water park at the hotel is great there are slides for bigger kids and adults, there is also a water play pool and park for younger children, you have 2 outdoor swimming pools and an indoor pool too plus a spa pool all cleaned daily too.
When we walked to the harbour we took the coastal path it takes about 40 minutes when cool a little longer when it's roasting, the coastal path goes through the backs of most hotels in Paphos, none of which seemed to have the same vibrant feeling and the same amount of facilities as the Phaethon.
Now I like to explore wherever I go so I booked a hire car before going to use halfway through the holiday I did use a different company to the 1 in the hotel. We went off to the mountains where we found the Caledonian waterfall which was amazing and the water was very cold but so refreshing when the temperature is well in the 30's. We also went to the harbour and the archeology site as well as aphrodite water park and island Cove adventure mini golf all great and near to the hotel. Whilst driving around found a bowling place called cosmic bowling ð³.
The old town market was also good.
So for an all round perfect holiday where you don't mind children, if you want quiet then pay extra and go elsewhere where there are no kids, kids need holidays too, why go anywhere else than the Phaethon we met people that have going back for year's and I can understand why that is why we are already looking for dates to go back also celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.
Thank you all at the Phaethon hotel.
You all made our holiday special thank you. More
My husband and I have stayed here previously in 2014, and returned this time on 8 June - 15 June 2016 with my brother and sister in law who were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel is spotless and the food amazing with so much choice every night. Weather was fantastic and you could feel the rise in temperature every day we were there. Our rooms were over the front of the hotel despite asking for a sea view when booking,but although the room size was very small and the balcony tiny compared to the sea view room we had two years ago I have to admit it was very quiet at that side of the hotel and the traffic which we were worried about did not bother us despite being next to the main road. I had emailed the hotel prior to going to ask if the restaurant could decorate a table for my brothers' anniversary which they did, and they were met with a bottle of prosecco and a lovely letter from the hotel congratulating them on their anniversary. To my surprise they also presented me with a letter and birthday cake as it was also my birthday on the same date. The restaurant staff were fantastic and so were the staff round the pool area ensuring that dirty cups and dishes were removed as soon as you had finished with them. However, I also have to agree with the reviewer who said about the number of children who were left free to run amok around the pool area and could hot believe how many were allowed to go to the pool with the slides on their own whilst their parents sunbathed by the main pool so leaving them totally unsupervised. The entertainment team under the management of Dido were very friendly but I have to state they were not as professional as the team we saw two years ago with the exception of a few ie Jacs, Lizzie and Chloe and the boys who did the break dancing, but did learn that some of the teams were new which was evident during the shows in the night especially during the dance routines as you could tell that they were still learning the ropes, but guess they will improve over the summer season. I also have to agree with the other reviewer who said that some of the shows were very samey and once you had seen one you had seen them all,so some nights we left the Chariots nightclub early to have a drink in the bar. Also, apart from the kids acrobat/entertainer who kept doing an annoying whistle during his entire act, there were no external entertainment brought in during the week as was the case two years ago which would have made a nice change. We did the Wave Dancer boat trip one night to get us out of the hotel following which we visited a few bars in Bar Street which was very busy and at times a bit frightening due to the large gangs of youngsters congregating in one area due to a number of bars being closed or closed down. All in all a good holiday but some improvements need to be made ie better supervision of children around the pool area and restaurant but this is not the fault of the hotel but parents need and should be told, and the entertainment could be better ie more external acts brought in.More
Holiday and family Wedding
A really good hotel for families, yes there are lots of children and they all have a great time,some are noisy , some not, but that is what a family holiday is all about. The food is excellent, you would never starve, however fussy you were, one of our party has a bad food intolerance and she found they catered for her too, the children have a section of their own too , The rooms are on the small side but have a fridge and we asked for a kettle, but very comfortable and clean, the staff are always very helpful friendly, we had a child's birthday and they set a table for him with balloons and a cake, fizzy wine for adults. The wedding side was also excellent too, I would certainly use this hotel with my great grandchildren again.
If you don't like Kids, don't complain , just choose a childless hotel.
Our families and friends loved every minute of the holiday.
Downside Mosquitos !! Not just at that hotel, they seem to be everywhere , and if they like your blood type, bad luck
Ps plenty of alcohol , teas, coffee etc, and kids drinks all day and loads of ice cream and at 4 pm Pancakes.
Could I fault this Hotel
No I cantMore
