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.

Brilliant for kids!!!!
Just got back from a week in this hotel. Went with my mum and my two daughters, 10 and 7. Had a fantastic time!! Once we had our breakfast (which was lovely) we based ourselves by the pool then I would hardly see the kids all day!!! With the different pools, animation team providing a variety of activities, the Thomson kids club with very enthusiastic and bubbly staff my girls didn't stop all day!!! Food throughout hotel was excellent with a variety to suit all. When we got too hot (which we did- averaging 37 degrees) we went into the indoor pool which was lovely and cool. Also had a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Never seemed to be more than 10 peeple in there at a time which suited us. We all treated ourselves to treatment in the 'Blue Spa'. Myself and mum Indian head massages, 40 Euros for 40mins. My girls also had their own treatment. Under 16 treatments. Strawberry Facial 25 Euros, 25mins and a Vanilla Massage, 15 Euros 15mins - LUSH!!! Took taxi to Paphos Harbour one morning, 10 Euros return. There is a public bus outside hotel, 1 Euros 50 each, I think but we found it easier to get taxi, Evening entertainment, again brilliant and of a very good quality. Animation team did 'Chicago' one night which was brilliant! If I had to be at all critical I would say the air con in the room is a little old and noisy and I wish they had more umbrellas by the sunbeds. The policy of not reserving beds with towels doesn't seem to apply!! Went out one morning at 7 and all the bed with an umbrella had towels on them!! Too hot to not have one. Plenty of beds but could do with more umbrellas, please!!! Overall a fantastic place to take your kids on holiday. My girls were busy all day which gave me and my mum the opportunity to relax too!!! Thank you Thomson team, animation team and the hotel staff for allowing us ALL to have a brilliant holiday! As they say - 'If the kids are happy, the grown ups are happy' SIMPLE!!More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one week from 13th July. We loved every minute of our stay, drinks and snacks on arrival was a nice touch and much appreciated. The food was fantastic, we loved everything, especially the Chinese buffet. The main thing I want to say about our stay is how much we enjoyed the entertainment. I have never been to a hotel where the entertainment has been as amazing as this, the team were fantastic, and worked relentlessly to make sure we had a super time. Rachael the dance captain was lovely and a very talented dancer, as were all the team. Thanks to them all for making our holiday.More

Great for families
Returned on Thursday after an 11 night stay at the Louis Phaethon. Lovely champagne reception upon arrival to the hotel. Rooms are well decorated with much needed air con. There was only 2 of us in the room, I imagine would be a bit of a squeeze if there were any more. We stayed level 3 sea view which was nice. Every day the animation team work hard to keep all entertained. With activities generally from 10am-12 and 3pm-5pm. Mini disco at 8pm every day...followed by bingo...the show at 10pm. Some talented people on the team! Thompson kids club ran very well, my daughter enjoyed attending. Also the hotel run kids club is great. You could catch a bus or taxi into the harbour very easily outside the hotel (taxi about 8 euro). Went on the Wavedancer BBQ boat trip. Booked through Thompson, would recommend this.More
