Great Stay at the Aliathon

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 6, 2009

We travelled to the Aliathon for a family wedding, in a party of about thirty. Some of our party stayed in the Fishing Village, others like us, (aged 39, 36, 5, 7months and 7months) in the Aegean Village.

First of all, if you have booked the Aegean Village and have read some negative reviews: DON'T WORRY! It really is very nice. We had a standard 1 bedroom apartment which, although showing a few minor signs of wear, was well equipped, comfortable and very spacious. In fact, it was the biggest of any of the apts we saw, much bigger than those in the fishing village (beware, in the Fishing Village, a 1 bedroom apt in fact has the bed "room" on a sort of open mezzanine overlooking the living area; not very private if there are more than two of you!) Perhaps we got a nice big apt because they knew we had a child and twin babies to accommodate, and we had plenty of room even with two cots in our bedroom, it was that spacious. In fact, if (when) we return we will ask to be put in the same apt again, it was no. 216 in the Aegean Village - ok our terrace was in permanent shade, but we're not sunbathers and the pro's outweigh the cons and then some.

Our apt included excellent air-con units which kept the place icy cold to escape from the relentless heat of Cyprus. We did see a few ants, but the maid sprayed the skirtings, windows and doors, and left us a can, and whatever is in the can does the trick, our tiny visitors never came back. Our apt overlooked the lovely lagoon pool, and we used that, the "reception" pool, the "main pool" and the splash park, and thoroughly enjoyed all of them - great variety, but all with showers, bars, and more than enough sunbeds and parasols for everyone. In fact, although we were told that the village was virtually full, we were amazed at how quiet it was - no queues for anything, loads of space, it was quite a surprise.

As for the catering - we were on All-Inclusive, and I have to say I expected the worst (ie pizza, nuggets, chips etc) - however: it was absolutely brilliant. We like to eat the local fare wherever we go, and we did so at every meal, with several local options for each course of all meals, from greek yogurt and dried fruits at breakfast to "village salad" with olives, hummus and taramas, lamb kleftiko, tavas and stifado, halloumi, Cypriot sausages, beef and pork stews, moussaka, the list was endless. Add to that all the usual hotel fare, plus "kids options", show-cooking including fresh omelettes and pancakes, roasts, fabulous desserts, amazing salads, it really was tremendous. I was amazed that they could offer such variety and quality on this sort of scale. And the drinks were pretty good too! There is something so indulgent about finishing breakfast at 10am and toddling up to the pool bar for your first ice-cold gin & tonic of the day! (Or brandy sour, pina colada, tequila sunrise, pretty good wine, beer and just about anything else). One word of warning - the self-serve wine in the restaurant is appalling! Better to pop upstairs (use the lift if you're lazy and/or scared of spilling) and get a couple of glasses of good stuff from the main bar, then pop back down to your meal. And forget about the supposed rule about "only two drinks per visit", I never saw it being enforced, and we never waited more than a minute for service anywhere.

Oh, and don't bother with the Mexican restaurant, it's not worth it. The Greek is better, lovely Kleftiko there, and better wine too.

The wedding itself was a joy from start to finish, everyone had a fantastic time, and we'd all love to come back again and again.

As for Paphos and Cyprus as a whole, it exceeded our expectations and proved to be a truly magical place for a family holiday with something for everyone, not least the superb weather! Can't wait to come back!!

Unique Quality: Unique qualities would include the tremendously attractive grounds, lovely pools, great kids activities, and the high quality food and drinks on offer. The wedding chapel is beautiful and the wedding organisation service first rate, as was the service from all staff.

Directions: The coast road leads past the Amathus Beach hotel with its little "turret thing" which you can see from many parts of town. Aliathon is just past the Avanti village and opposite the three hotels of the Athena chain.
