"my wife and myself have just returned after spending 2 weeks at this great hotel.If you are in any doubt about going here we would say give it a go and have a great holiday.The rooms are light and clean,(go for a sea view)and they have good storage and are now putting a fridge in rooms.The staff in the hotel are brilliant,from the cleaners to the waiters can,t do enough to please and even when it was busy they never kept people waiting for long.The food in our opinion is great,with lots to choose from, as good as some 5 stars hotels we have been in.We have tried to pick something to pick on and to be honest the only thing we would change is the spirits,maybe less in glass but better quality,but thats our opinion and it a suggestion to the management nota complaint. And if they read this we have to tell you that you have the best aninmation team we have seen.WELL DONE... "

"I went to Cyprus with my dad and sister on 11th August 2010 and were absolutely thrilled with what we saw! There is a snack bar with pizzas,chips,chicken nuggets,hamburgers etc. They have made brand new waterslides and closed the hotel in November. Our holiday reps were friendly and kind, same with the staff. I would recommend that you come in the summer when it's nice and hot. I'll definately come back next year!!!"

"Just returned from a two week stay at the Phaethon Hotel. On the whole, we had a really nice time. The food is delicious in all areas of the hotel, especially in the chinese snack bar where the chef took particular pride in his work. The hotel entertainment staff work tirelessly day and night to produce a really good variety of day and evening entertainment and were friendly at all times. The rooms are in desperate need of renovation which is due to take place in November this year and the bathrooms in the rooms are tiny with cracked tiles and poor decor. The air conditioning in the rooms is also in need of a overhaul as it can be noisy. The air conditioning in Chariots Night Club is only switched on at 9pm at night (half an hour after lots of kids have been dancing to the kid's disco) and it can get extremely hot and stuffy in there when there are lots of people. The restaurant in particular is VERY VERY hot when evening meal and breakfast are being served - I don't believe they had the air conditioning on at all at these times - guests were saying they think it isn't switched on to move people through the restaurant quickly as it can be extremely uncomfortable to eat in the temperatures in there. The staff asked us to let the management know about the air conditioning because they themselves were suffering due to sweltering conditions in these areas. I don't think the management are particularly interested in what you have to say as we asked on several occasions for it to be switched on in Chariots Night Club to no avail. Unfortunately, we had some money taken from our hotel room, which we reported to the management who were unhelpful and denied that any of their staff could be responsible. They initially offered to write a report for the police and investigate but later stated they couldn't do this for us but would look into it. This didn't happen as I discovered when talking to the security guard at the hotel, who hadn't been informed, by the management, that this incident had occured, therefore they hadn't looked into the matter. The management assured us that nothing of this nature had occured during the six years the deputy manager had worked there. However, we were informed by an ex employee from the hotel who had returned from holiday that this wasn't the case and the staff regularly stole things from the kitchen fridges and bars and a maid had been sacked for using a guests mobile phone in their room. I did disclose this information to the management who were still unprepared to do anything about the situation. The management suggested that my 10 and 7 year old children were reponsible for taking the 120 euros from the room - I am sure I would have noticed them spending 120 euros in an all inclusive hotel, bearing in mind they were never left unsupervised. So in summary the management are prepared to lie to protect the reputation of the hotel and do not have their customers best interests at heart, only the reputation of the hotel. All in all a good holiday, but spirits slightly dampened by the money going missing and the management response."

beautiful place hotel lovely
"we had a lovely time at this hotel, very helpful and so friendly, the food was excellent and plenty of it the drinks just flow when ever you want one its there on the table before you no it. brilliant hotel for kids so much for them to do all day long, the only thing we can moan about is the tv in the drinking area for the world cup football was,nt big enough for the england matches but down the road there was a lovely bar that had a projector screen.rooms clean and towels changed daily no complaints on the hotel and would reccommend it. the only thing i did,nt like was round the pool it was very slippy they was constantly cleaning round but with all the games that went on round the pool you had to be very careful will be going back it was that good thumbs up to all who work there ."

"I previously stayed at this hotel with my family at Christmas and never thought i would go back in April to find a completely different set up, since George the duty manager has left along with all the decent bar staff the hotel has really declined, rooms were not serviced, and when they were no towels or rubbish were collected, resturant staff were very very rude snatching plates out of your hands or ushering you to un made up tables while the local diners got preferrencial treatment, entertainment in day was ok, though evening activities/shows are dated though the cheif animator seemed more interested in chasing young girls, in the bar area you could expect to wait uptp 20 mins for a drink,gym was poor, dirty with rusty weights and mould on the ceiling which was just painted over and the spa well my bath blows more bubbles that theres did, indoor pool also cold area dirty in fact towrads the end of our holiday we checked into the Ledra Beach its a totally different class, "
