I was here working on the Reception desk for two months prior to going to the Tourism College in Nicosia for nine months. It was an "Erasmus" exchange from my Uni in Wales.
The day started in Limassol with a brief visit to another disappointing Harley dealer. Clearly this country does not have much of a following for the brand.
We continued east to the ruins at Amathous. It was a windswept coastal area and although the ruins were not really much to look at after seeing so many other sites, at least it was sunny.
Limassol and it's Castle
We drove back to Limassol through many resort areas. We located ...
... there where Jayne saw a sign that police and army personnel were granted free entry. Quick as a flash Jayne produced her warrant card as badged her way in for free. I followed her. The panoramic views were interesting rather than spectacular. It showed the territory lost in the Turkish invasion and a large Turkish Republic of Cyprus flag on a facing mountain side must serve to rub salt in the wounds of the Greek Cypriots. The north also appeared to ...
Today was supposed to be spent in Nicosia but with sudden realisation that the National Museum was closed today, we decided to head north. As luck would have it the weather was in our favour too.
We headed to Coral Bay stopping a few times on the way. The bay was sheltered and of course sand but not in itself attractive. The appeal must be that it is the beach to be seen on in the summer.
Heading north again, we strayed from the ...
After a couple of days in the car and with the probability of this being the last day of fine weather, we decided to spend the day in Paphos. After a lazy start to the day we strolled down to the harbour and sat in the sunshine drinking coffee and watching runners finishing a half marathon road race. It was quite busy and noisy but entertaining.
We next visited the Kato Paphos Archaeological Park. This occupied a large area of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Louis Phaethon Beach Paphos
Love the place
have stayed here in september for the last 3 years.find the hotel is relaxing,food great,service great,staff excellent. going back again sept 9th 2006
We spent Christmas in this hotel. It's wasn't great for anyone in their 30's or below as it was very orientated towards couples in their 50's +. The staff were particularly friendly towards the older generation and although were pleasant were not inclined to be flexible. We were disappointed that there was practically no swimming at this time of the year, the outside pool was freezing and the indoors one is a joke. It's quite a walk in to Pahos at around 40min. Every lift seemed to be broken at one stage. The room was good with a nice view. The food was good too. Apparently pregnant women are not allowed to get back massages in this hotel.
Myself and my partner have just arrived back from paphos and stayed at the phaethon beach.. The hotel is good overall. The staff are nice and friendly and the food is of a good standard but not a la carte. The waiter service for drinks is excellent and they even serve all drinks in proper glasses also serve bottles of beer which is good for an all inclusive as most use plastic tumblers.
Plus points first. Good food,friendly staff,lovely weather. Down side,we thought the pool area was an accident waiting to happen very slippy and we saw numerous children slip and hurt themselves. Although the staff were very friendly we had to wait to be served up to 15 min for a drink and had to ask on one ocassion 3 times for a cup of tea. Also be very careful buying in the shop in the hotel as we bought goods that were faulty and they would not exchange them so again be very careful of what your buying!!
Good but family rooms small
Lovely hotel very clean, food was of a good standard and staff were very nice and polite and went out of their way to provide a good service.
Arriving at the hotel late meant that the hotel staff had provided sandwiches and a soft drink in the room which was considerate.
On a negative level my only quibble was the size of the room which was very small when you have two children as well, although clean I feel the hotel is due for a small upgrade.
We have just returned (late September) from a week at the Louis Phaethon Beach Hotel in Paphos, The rooms, maid service and reception staff were excellent, food was excellent and the choice super (we were on half board, many people were all inclusive). Chariots Night club was in desperate need of re-furbishment and not at all in keeping with the general standard of the hotel, if fact it reminded me of holidays years and years ago at Butlins !!.
5 out of ten
Food excellent, service terrific, rooms adequate, day activities lightweight but fun, local spirits appalling - famous brands very expensive - beer fine, evening entertainment tries hard but doesn't make it. Worst beach in the Med possibly. A bit claustrophobic when busy.
I went back to this hotel at the beginning of July this year for my 4th time! Once again I loved every single minute of it - its just such a fab hotel that has everything you need. I had only been with my family before but this time me and 2 friends went and even though we went for such different purposes (i.e. not a family based holiday) the hotel is so varied it had everything we wanted - so much so that we only left it once! Food is great (I'm extremely fussy and even I found something every night), staff really welcoming, extremely clean, great range of activities (including at night) and whilst it is a fair distance to the town there is a bus stop right outside the hotel for a very cheap price. There are a few shops on sight but they are obviously a little expensive however the nearest ones are only a 5 min walk up the road. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone (esp those going all inclusive - its certainly worth that bit extra) so much so that I'm going back next year...for the 5th time!
Great for kids
Stayed here in July for 1 week on all inclusive basis. Hotel is great, esspecially the staff who are very friendly. The food is not fabulous cuisine or anything, but there is soo much variety and its good clean food so i doubt you'll find much to complain about.
Best bit is definately the entertainment as there is loads to do during the day and evenings. The kids will definately love it as there is loads of stuff on for the kids.
The beach however is a huge letdown, its not really swimable and the sand is very poor quality. The swimming pool is huge but does get very busy (not good for doing lenghts). To conclude its above average but certainly not five star.
good hotel good staff everythng good apart from there is no beach at all the pictures in all brochures are out dated if you do not want a beach i highly recommend this hotel
