This hotel has clinched a quiet spot just outside the centre of Paphos. It’s less than a ten-minute bus ride from the harbour, where cafés and tavernas line up along the water’s edge. If you fancy the walk, just follow the palm-lined path along the seafront. It’ll take you about an hour.
Back at the hotel, the spotlight falls on three swimming pools. The first has a pool bar with a bougainvillea-covered canopy. The second's down by the beach and comes with six waterslides, which are open from May to October. Lastly, there’s the indoor pool – a circular number sitting beneath an ornate glass ceiling.
The rooms have freshly-painted walls and wooden floors, and come with essentials like satellite TVs.
On the dining-front, the main restaurant serves up big buffets and, at breakfast, you can get things like omelettes cooked to order. At lunch, there’s a really popular Chinese buffet. And for afternoon coffee and cakes, there’s a traditional Viennese patisserie.

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.

Just returned from a week at the Phaethon. We travelled for a family wedding (which was at the Louis Ledra Beach just down the road) and decided on the Phaethon for its facilities for children. We made the right choice. Ledra Beach held a fantastic wedding (private terrace/room) and the food and service was superb. The Phaethon has the better children's pools and general family atmosphere. The staff make this hotel what it is. Friendliest staff ever! From the moment you step off the coach from the airport, they bend over backwards for you. The hotel is exceptionally clean and the food is fantastic.The rooms are well equipped and a good size. The animation team are very friendly and work hard to ensure you are enjoying yourself. As a rule, we do not return to the same place, but we will make an exception here. We will also look into staying at other Louis hotels. Thanks for a great holiday!More
A Real Gem
Just returned from staying at this delightful hotel as part of a Thompson's all inclusive holiday on the tourist beach at Paphos. Only four stars because of a rather dated decor and facilities in the bedroom, (didn't realise that non flat screen TVs were still around) and an unfortunately overlooked cockroach hiding behind a curtain when we first arrived. This was no reflection on the cleanliness of the rest of the stay or the hotel, which was pristine, but not five stars. The staff at the hotel, both the Thompson reps, the entertainment team and the hotel staff were absolutely superb, with nothing being too much trouble. The unquestionable highlight was the food which was absolutely exceptional. It was all buffet service, but cooked to perfection and with a superb, ever-changing variety which encompassed the tastes and the appetites of everyone. It was sublime! And with free drinks, you couldn't go wrong. The local bus service is really good, with easy access to the harbour, town and local beaches. It's worth hiring a car for a few days to explore the island - or at least the southern part of it. You can't drive across the green line. There's an excellent hire car place in the hotel which I'd recommend using - about 20€ a day all in, not including petrol. Highly recommended.More

Enjoyable family holiday
Took our 4 year old for a 7 night stay. We stayed on the second floor with a sea view and although the room was a bit smaller than the brochure pictures it suited our needs. The hotel was kept very clean and the food was good too, plenty of choice (try the selection of BBQ meat on offer each night, it's really good). Loads on offer for kids even though it was out of season. Our 4 year old loved going to mini club (the hotel's own kids club) and the two excellent parks on site. The kids pool is great (if a little cold this time of year). The indoor pool and jacuzzi are great if the days are grey. The night time entertainment can get a little repetitive but we took it in good spirit and had fun. No problems with noise and the staff were friendly and accomodating. Had no plans to return, but given how much our little one enjoyed it we may make a return visit next year.More

Expected much more!!
Stayed here 10 days with18 family members for our wedding (at another hotel) the pools and slides were great. Other than the pools not many other facilities for kids mini golf ect and the playground could do with updating. I thought some of the entertainment team were great yet others were more interested in getting as much male attention as possible than there actual jobs!! The food was great as was the selection of drinks available. The entertainment on an evening was very poor. Not very child friendly the childrens entertainment was 1 hour max per night I expected more from a family hotel! Burlesque kind of shows were not what I expected from a family hotel either. The rooms were quite small but cope able. The hotels communal areas are lovely. Overall I wish we would have stayed at the holiday village Alithion 2 mins down the road the holiday villages are a lot more childrens focused and was a similar price :-) More

3rd visit to a fantastic hotel
My sister and I have been with our 87 year old Dad for 3 years running. Mixed age groups, everyone seems to get on. Outside bowling green which Dad enjoyed and seeing old friends from previous years. Food is always hot and a carvery every night. Nice Chinese food on a lunch time. Very clean hotel, maid service every day. Animation team work very hard, the shows were outstanding and during the day there are quizzes, shuffleboard, and more. They are not pushy at all and do not bother you but always have a smile for you. Service from the reception is excellent. Hope we can make a 4th visit.More
