... not that we are really complaining about that, as we were more than satiated after tonight's experience. I suppose we also can't overly fault the guidebook for recommending that diners should take it easy during the meze - though the sheer volume of food was nowhere near what was described, there definitely is a possibility of over stuffing yourself to the point of discomfort, but following the guidebook's advice, we managed ...
... we had no way of knowing the true meaning of ΨΕΚΑΣΜ 17;ΝΑ, only finding out for certain after consulting with Maria the next day, prior to checking out. In this context, obviously "sprayed" means sprayed with pesticides, so it's a kind warning that you better wash off that fruit prior to eating it. If only I knew that before cramming that ripe peach down my gullet in record time ...
We could've tried calling the owner, but my phone was out of commission from its dip in the Aegean, and Benita's battery was dead. So we walked to a nearby hotel and used their phone, with the owner kindly calling the owner of our guesthouse - apparently, she had waited around for most of the day, but left shortly before our late arrival. She had also called me several times to confirm arrival time but of course, I couldn't ...
... heat and sun especially with his terrisums on his eyes. He doesn't listen to reason sometimes. Tried to buy a sarong for me so I can go swimming Jane walk around in my cosies but couldn't. Will keep looking. Back o the hotel to pay for more Wi fi. Had drinks and dinner then dashed my air and had to wait hours for it to dry. Vince fell asleep on the bed and started snoring. I finished my book. The one about stories and secrets. Great book. Really enjoyed ...
Just a real tourist day, visiting the mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion and Orpheus in Pafos,
then the Royal tombs of Kato Pafos.
On the way back to Nicosia a short stop in the hill town of Lefkara, know for its lace.

Historical Traveler Reviews Alexander The Great Beach Hotel Paphos
My husband and I with our 13 year old son have just returned from a two week holiday at this wonderful hotel and I felt that I should let others know how great it is.
A great hotel
We have just returned from staying at the Alex. We being two 40 somethings. It is a great place to stay, lovely location just 5 - 10 minutes walk away from Paphos harbour. The hotel is set just above the beach and the staff are really friendly. We went B&B and were pleased with this as there are very good resturants nearby, my favourite was called the arun. I must mention the sun bed system, you are allocated your own sunbeds on arrival for the lenght of your stay. This is the best system I have ever seen.
The fact that so many guests return time after time (they hold a "returners" party each week) says it all. It's a great hotel with excellent facilities. Most of their senior staff have been there for a long time as well which is a good sign - greeting old friends.
We have just returned home after 2 weeks staying at the Alexander the Great Hotel.
Absolute joy.... didn't want to come home and my husband is not happy about going self catering to Greece next year (snob).
We have just arrived home from pafos and wished we could have stayed longer, 10 days was not enough! The hotel was Fantastic, the staff were very friendly and the guest relations officer was excellent help to me when I realised I left my medication at home by accident, within two days I had enough to get me through!
My family, which consisted of my Son David aged 10, my Husband and my Mum and Dad, decided to treat ourselves to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary and my Husbands birthday. From start to finish it was perfect. The resort of Paphos is our favourite and have tried many 4 star hotels there over the years (we married there 13 years ago), but this by far beat our expectations and worth that "extra penny!!". The only problem we now have, as we look through the brochures for Easter 2006, is no other hotel will do!! All the staff were very friendly and most helpful. Cleanliness...furnishings..decor...BIG Bed...first class. The sun bed allocation system was brilliant...my Husband really felt on holiday because he was not woken by the alarm clock at 6am to go and put the towels on the beds...as would be usual with all other hotels! Fantastic, hope they never change this, did not realise how nice it felt to not be in that usual "rushed" feeling every morning!!!! Perfect location...just perfect. Breakfast was a joy to wake up to and see the friendly smiles of the waiters/tresses forever topping up your coffee cup with fresh coffee. The hotel management took great care of my Mum and Dads celebration and provided complimentary champagne and chocolates in their room, and without any notice, my Husband received a larger than large birthday cake...enough to offer the whole hotel! (Thank you Alexander the Great).
We decided on this hotel from the reviews of other visitors and we weren't disappointed!I had booked a room with a side sea view and we arrived to a room overlooking the harbour.We also had a lovely welcome of a bottle of champers,fresh flowers,chocolates on our pillow...
We had booked bed and breakfast and this didn't disappoint with a large choice of hot and cold breakfast items.
We also ate in the restaurant one evening which proved to be excellent value at 12 cypriot pounds.
Most of the staff were helpful and friendly.
The sunbed allocation there is a great idea,you just ask the attendant for some and show him where you would like to relax.We chose the beds overlooking the little beach and the sea which was stunning.
We stayed for a week at the beginning of January 2005. The hotel is beautifully laid out with a lovely large indoor pool, gym and spa, just what you want in January. It is close to central Paphos too.
