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.

Very Pleasant Stay At Louis Phaethon
Me & the wife booked this hotel for a week as part of our honeymoon. We read plenty of reviews on TA beforehand & it's fair to say that we felt that the overall 4.5 rating for the hotel is very fair. Any negatives were only relatively minor ones. Our flight in was delayed by 3 hours which meant arrival at the hotel wasn't until after 3am! We were greeted & booked in quickly before being given a simple sandwich & carton drinks in a bag to go to the room with. A lot of reviews marked this as a positive but I was personally disappointed. This was an all inclusive holiday & felt having a small spread buffet in the restaurant (As we have had elsewhere) would have been more in keeping with the hospitality given by the hotel for the remainder of our week. The room was on the 3rd floor facing front of the hotel, small balcony with partial sea view. Lots of reviews mention the tight room sizes but we didn't really find that as just a couple. Other reviews also saying that the décor looks tired but it wasn't bad at all as we may have imagined. The room was kept very clean all week for us & we never even saw a room-maid! We found the Air Con worked really well despite contrary reviews. Sure, because of only one key being issued, you're unable to keep the room cool while out but once back it didn't take long to get it back that way. We had a room on the 3rd floor (3025) & because this section of the floor overlooks the main reception area we found the noise tended to funnel it's way up to the room, Not a major issue for us but just be aware. Also because the doors/locks were more of the old fashioned type,(no card entry) you had to kind of slam it to ensure it was properly locked. This leads to noisy random slamming of heavy doors both day & night. A definite upgrade needed here. Paying for a safe at 3 euros a day is standard for this type of holiday & we were happy to pay this for peace of mind. TV had only a couple of English channels but that is also pretty standard & didn't bother us. English newspapers freely available to buy within the hotel if you wanted to keep up. This is what I did. 3 pools to choose from all within large well kept grounds. Despite other reviews we never had an issue getting a sunbed & parasol despite not getting poolside until around 11am. We chose to use the slightly quieter 2nd pool. (The main pool had lots of activities going on in there). WIFI was free in the main reception area but payable as extra in the rooms. No need to do this unless you are some sort of addict though just pop down the reception in the mornings to take advantage of the fastest WIFI then get on with your holiday. WIFI reception more iffy in the evenings probably due to the increased demand. The staff were, without exception, friendly & welcoming to us & worked hard to make our holiday. Well done to all! Some reviews expressing disappointment about the rocky, seaweed laden beach right at the front of the hotel. This is definitely a downside but there is a better stretch only 200 meters to the left. At this point can we recommend travelling up to Coral Bay by a frequent bus (Only 5 euros each return & half hour on a cheap all day ticket) where the sea is shallow, crystal clear with a lovely sandy beach. You will not regret. On your way, stop off at Paphos harbour & town. Very beautiful, scenic & plenty to do. This could be a day out on it's own as it was for us.Cheaper than an excursion too! Food was pretty standard All Inclusive fare & this was more than adequate for our needs. One or two WOW dishes served up amongst all this though.(I loved the chicken curry) . They do have themed nights too & you can tell lots of effort with food put in. The Chinese lunches offered at the pool bar are highly recommended! Drinks were all very palatable too. We did try most that was on offer during our week. Table service for drinks in the lobby areas were a bit hit & miss so use your judgement to decide whether to just order from the bar. We only saw the in house entertainment once & contrary to many reviews we thought it was rather good. Certainly plenty of time/effort put into it all by the hard working Animation team. We can only judge on that one night though. As for the venue in the basement (Chariots Nightclub) lots of people saying it would be better held outside which it may well be but Air Con was adequate, no long queue for the bar or toilets and venue didn't feel cramped. I hope this gives all who read it a fair and accurate assessment of what to expect if booking here. Overall we felt this holiday was as good as any we've been on before. All positives are strong ones & negatives minor ones. Thanks to all staff at Louis Phaethon for your hospitality! More
Such a lovely 2 weeks!
Do not be put off by people's petty negative comments!! I have just returned from this holiday with my family of 7 we had a lovely time! The staff are fab always smiling and helpful. The pools are clean and plenty of sunbeds, yeah people have moaned about people taking sunbeds early... Isn't that everywhere?? Every single holiday I've been on is the same obvs you haven't been abroad much?! There is 3 pools- children's pool, the main pool (which has entertainment alllllll day in) or the chill out pool (we stayed here) you are not allowed any inflatables in the chill out pool they are all for the main pool. The variety was good choice! If you are taking babies in nappies make sure you take plenty of swimming nappies as if any accidents they close the pool for 4 hours to clean it and in that heat it's a nightmare! The hotel sells them for €1. The water slides are so good even adults loved them!! Nearly every day there is a Wedding at the hotel , I seen someone made a comment about people arranging furniture for large families .... What's is this?? If you was part of a family wouldn't you want to be together. Some cranks around! I honestly loved the food, every allinclusive I have been on there has been loads of choice but not very good, this hotel I can't fault the food! It is definitely quality over quantity here! And the desserts are gorgeous!! :) there is lso a kids sections with a step so they can reach their own food. The rooms are on the small side except ours as it was a corner room! But people complaining about them do you spend all your holiday in the room?? Me personally I have a shower and go to sleep in it! They were cleaned every day fresh towels if you needed, maids come every day! The entertainment - they work soooo hard and don't stop! They are all lovely. My only downfall would be this as it would be much better with a variety of shows as its always the entertainers! Give them a break and get some outside shows in. The hotel itself is the 1st one on the strip from the airport it's only about 20mins from there and I seen someone complained about aeroplanes flying over (why do people moan over petty things!) I enjoyed seeing them fly over :) If you go to back of the hotel and turn right the is a little church which has been voted the best sunset spot in the whole of Cyprus... It is a beautiful spot!! If you continue along the path you can walk past all the hotels and the sea which is crystal clear! If you are a walker you can walk right down to the port. We walked down there after breakfast one day it took us about 45mims but it was lovely! The port has plenty of shops quite expensive in some shops you do have to mooch around to find a better price. If you don't fancy walking the bus runs outside the front of the hotel every 15 or so mins the 611 takes you straight the port and is €1.50 after 9pm €2.50. We went on the wave dancer boat..... Highly recommend!! Best night we have ever had on holiday . We also went on the ocean flyer yacht for the day that was fab! Overall I would certainly go back to this hotel and the people of Cyprus are lovely!More
This is a real and honest account of hotel pantheon ,arrived late on arrival no free drink or cake just a bag of sandwiches ,no porter had to find room on our own which took half an hour ,got into room which was very nice to a welcome bottle of champagne and a lovely letter ,view from room was incredible couldn't of asked for more The hotel it's self is outstanding but the food in the evening is well let's say if you like Iceland food you'll be happy Awoken at night by a arguing couple twice ,sick of our door being knocked The staff ( bar staff etc ) very good couldn't fault them ,and as for the entertainment team did a good job but only seemed to talk to people who make a regular appearance at hotel They say Germans are the worse for putting towels on sun beds well let me tell you the English are the worse Trying to have a quiet drink and brits rearranging furniture around you to get 20 people ,(not amused ) Went to hotel Louis in Zakinthos last year far best the better Feel as if we were ignored and as for being treated like royalty what a load of rubbish ,paid 3,000 for this holiday big disappointment Already booked with jet2 next year lol leaveThompson alone But we made our holiday our own best days was trip into pathos harbor and had lunch out There you go an honest and truthful account More
Our third visit and again we weren't disappointed. Food,service,staff,facilities,entertainment all top notch. Choice at mealtimes is fantastic and well presented,spoilt for choice. A must try is the Chinese kitchen in the beach bar,Korean chicken is superb. Beach towels are provided and can be exchanged every three days. Bus stop right out side hotel €1.50 to Paphos or taxi €10.00. Would stay here again.More
We booked this as a last minute quick week away. Having only done all inclusive on long haul we didn't expect the food to be up to much and thought we would end up eating out most nights. How wrong we were! We honestly couldn't fault the variety and quality of the food at this hotel, it was all well cooked,fresh and available whenever you wanted it. Our room (2008)was on the small side but very clean and in good condition with a lovely sea view. The maids are in daily and kept our room spotless. All of the staff were very friendly and couldn't have made us more welcome, The pool areas are very nice and although there is the normal towels on sun beds ritual we never had any trouble getting a bed. The entertainment team worked very hard and although we didn't participate there was always something going on if you Wanted to get involved. The only downside is that there isn't much of a beach and it's quite difficult to get into the sea over the rocks. All in all a great hotel and a lovely holiday, so much so that we have already booked again for 10 days next may, this time with our daughter, her partner and our 2 year old grandson.More
