I have been coming back to Paphos and the Aloe Hotel for the last 4 years. Doesn't that say it all! Staff are friendly and polite and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is clean, tidy and the pool areas are also kept clean and tidy. As a single traveller I have no concerns re safety etc but also know that there is someone at the hotel to help me if needed. Fully recommend.

Excellent hotel as expected from 4*

We visited the Aloe Hotel in June 2008 with some friends and a small child. The hotel was everything you could expect from a 4* rating. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the reception staff even charged our ipods for us when our charger broken half way through the holiday. The breakfasts were excellent with more than enough to choose from and the evening meals that we only had twice were to a high standard also.(we ate out most evenings as there was so many different restaurants to choose from) Staff were also very honest as we left our safety deposite box in the room open by mistake one day, it was full of credit cards, jewelery, passports and flight tickets, but nothing was touched and all our belongings were there upon our return to the room. We enjoyed our holiday so much that we have booked to go back at the end of the year. Excellent hotel, would definitely recommend.

The reviews on this site appear to be from competitor hotels. Don't believe a word. This hotel is good,clean,smart and friendly.Only a vindictive respondent would describe this hotel with a low rating
Excellent hotel

Just returned from a week holiday in the Aloe hotel and thought I should write a review, as I had read many negative reviews before I went and was a bit worried about what it would be like. We thought the hotel was great, it was clean, had a lovely pool, and most of all was in an excellent location (about a mile walk to the harbour, but lots of restaurants and shops along the way), some friends o ours stayed in Paphos but were about 4km from the centre which is where allot of hotels are and I think this would make all the difference between having a great or good time. We went half board at the hotel, the breakfasts were really good, with a lot of choice (fresh fruit, fry ups, croissants etc). We only ate at the hotel in the evenings a few nights as there were so many nice restaurants we wanted to try out too, but the meals we had at the hotel were really nice, there was a themed night each night so we just chose to go to the ones of which the theme we liked best, again there was plenty of choice, I'm quite a fussy eater but always found lots I liked.

There is a mini bar fridge in each room and they charge you £1.50cp each day for putting your own things in there. We just put our water in there over night and moved it in the morning before cleaners came so didn't get charged. The rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need.

I was concerned that we'd be the youngest couple there as a lot of reviews have said it was all elderly and did saga events etc. The age of guests was very mixed, some families with children, lots of young couples and lots of middle aged, older couples.

The staff were fine, didn't find them rude at all, but then not overly polite as they are in some places.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of going to Paphos. The only thing was that some of the decor inside was bit dated but then it was clean and tidy so don't think that's really much of a problem.

I would recommend going to the Brazilian and Chinese (situated on the way to the harbour) and there are lots of nice bars along the harbour. Would also recommend going on the wavedancer trip, mosaics, tomb of the kings and market. The beach that is only 150metres from the hotel is quite nice, but there is a gorgeous beach at coral bay, which is loads better and easy to get to by bus.

Eating out can be expensive, we always picked the nicest looking restaurants and had a starter each, main meal and a bottle of wine and it usually came to about £30cp. But there were lots of places you could eat cheaply of you wanted to, lots of places advertising £7cp for a three course meal, but as we were on holiday we just splashed out and went to the nicer places.

Certainly not 4 star because staff are very grumpy and don't like helping at all. Good location as it is close to the beach and market. Food could be better, will go back to Paphos but not to the aloe hotel.

Poor standards, dated hotel which requires a complete modernisation. Carpet threadbare. no air conditioning, rude staff and disappointing food. We moved out and went to Alexander the Great beach Hotel across, a real 4 star hotel
Does not merit 4* rating

  • Traveller type: Family Traveller
This is the worst 4* hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. It does not merit it's 4* star accreditation - it would struggle to get 3 ordinarily. In the lobby of the hotel various awards are displayed and it is telling that they are all 9 / 10 years old and Thompson previously awarded this hotel 3Ts.

I have stayed in Paphos before and stayed in a 4* hotel but this hotel does not compare.

The decor everywhere is very dated. The rooms are small, very dark and smell damp / musty. The so-called sea view overlooks waste ground covered in rubbish. Refurbishment is long overdue. The corridors are dark and depressing.

I only ate dinner in the hotel once and that was enough - burnt, soggy and unappetising food.

Breakfast was mediocre at best and trying to get a cup of coffee / tea was a lesson in patience.

Whilst some staff were pleasant most were morose to the point of being rude.

I would not want to return and I would not reccommend to anyone.

Paphos itself is a fine resort for people of all ages and there are some excellent hotels - the Aloe is not one of them.

As a frequent visitor to the Aloe Hotel I was greatly disappointed this time I visited for 2 weeks, the food menu and entertainment has not change for the passed 2 years, I also thought there was a shortage of staff, having to wait a long time for drink service in the lounge area, very happy with the housekeeping side of the staff very friendly and helpful, did a really good job of keeping up the room standards. Would like to see improvement before we recommend the hotel to others, we have recommended the hotel to 23 friends which 20 of have booked there summer holiday, I do hope they have no reason for complaint.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Aloe Hotel

Questionable 4 star!!!!!

from eddieMidlandsUk
The hotel is quite well positioned for pafos harbour 15min walk away.
we had a partial side sea view room which was newly decorated and was clean. The bath was too narrow to sit in comfortably. and took ages to fill. The furniture in the bar area was well past its shelf life with worn out fabric on the arms. The main dissatisfaction was the food it was selfserve buffet style every night mainly the same ingreadiants but with a different theme name , some people had been their three weeks and the menu had not varied . I would not be revisiting I would surjest The Alexandra the Great or Amusus Beach hotels as a better chioce.

dirty bedding!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I would have liked to given this hotel a better review but I have to be honest the dirty bedding really dissapointed me. When I arrived I peeled back the bedding to discover the bed spread had a number of stains (large water marks,rings). I then looked at the blanket and noticed that was covered in sticky white spains(maybe food). The other twin bed was the same. I phoned the front desk who sent someone to change the bedding straight away. The maid was a bit moody as the bedding she had bought was also Dirty, she had to go and get even more bedding. I was pleased she had changed the bed but it wasn't the best start to my holiday. The night befor I left I discovered the new blanket was also dirty, The maid had cleverly hidden the stains. The one thing I would expect from a holel is clean bedding, this really let the Aloe down. There isn't any excuse for it.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel appears very clean. The decor is a bit dated but still nice. The outside pool is very nice, the inside pool was a bit small also the water seemed a bit cloudy.

This hotel is used for local weddings these seem to take priorty over other holiday makers.

Even thou it wasn't high season we still had to wait for tables to be cleared. I was dissapointed with breakfast in this hotel. Too Little choice also it wasn't warm enough. It was below a four star standard. My advise is don't leave it too late to arrive other wise you are left with dried out ham and curly dried cheese.

The hotel is in a great location, you can enjoy a nice walk to the harbour. It is a safe area. There is a little beach across from the hotel. The beach inproves as you walk along, we walked for miles.

The local bus stops almost outside the hotel.

Pathos is very interesting and I hope to return sometime soon . I will not be staying at the Aloe. There are some lovely hotels in the Kato area and I will be staying in one of those.

Excellent hotel

from fantaki1
Got an awesome deal on this hotel (110 US $/night) as January is low season in Cyprus. Wasn't expecting such a good hotel. Very nice, good location, clean, comfortable. Breakfast and dinner are decent. Staff is very friendly. Highly recommended if you stay in Paphos.

christmas 2005

from davio
my wife iris and myself have just spent a very pleasant christmas break at this hotel and having read other revues was a little wary but taking all things into account we both enjoyed ourselves
you just have to steer clear of the mini bar smuggle your own drinks in
food was good and varied overall standards of the hotel i would give 8 out of ten

Nice hotel

from poppyland3
I stayed here in late November and was impressed with the hotel. The staff were extremely efficient and polite, nothing was too much trouble. I had to move rooms half way through my stay as there was a problem with the heating, ie it was permanently on!! And since the temperature outside was still in the high 70's, it was unbearable in the room. When I went to reception to ask for something to be done, at first a young girl was not very helpful and basically said tough! it's winter and you have to put up with it!! That did not go down well, so I spoke to the reception manager who couldn't have been more pleasant, and within 10 minutes I had been moved to a much cooler room. We had a couple of meals in the hotel, one was during a Cypriot night and was fantastic. The other was an International night, and again the food was superb, lots of choices and plenty of it. Again, the staff were excellent.
The harbour was about a 30 minute leisurely stroll away, with plenty of restaurant choices along the way, (Romantica next door to the Hotel is worth a go!)
There is plenty to do in and around the Hotel, but we hired a car and saw more of Cyprus, so didn't really use the facilities. All in all, a good hotel, certainly value for money, and yes, we would go back.

Good hotel in very central location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I found the best thing about this hotel was the location. It was right in the middle of everywhere and we managed to walk to most places, while still being quiet and peaceful.

We booked this hotel as we got married in Paphos and wanted an affordable, central hotel. We weren't dissapointed.

If I was to list bad points, it would be (as mentioned in previous reports) the general shabbiness of the corridors and some rooms. All that is needed is a fresh lick of paint and to have the carpets cleaned annd it would transform this hotel totally.

We found the breakfast brilliant. The staff were friendly and very efficient in bringing us teas and coffees. The food was what you'd expect of a buffet, loads of it!! There was fruit, cakes, pastries, english breakfast, cerals, pancakes etc and all of it was nice.

The pool was huge (but freezing!), we were there off season, but there was still a lot of sunbed reserving going on, but we still managed to get decent ones by the pool if we went at about 10am.

The snackbar food by the pool is horrible!!! I had a carbonara one day which tasted like rotten cheese, and the salads were far from fresh. The only decent thing on the menu was the burgers and chip although these were still obviously frozen and overcooked! If you fancy lunch by your hotel, we found a lovely bakery on the corner just a few mins walk going towards the harbour which did home made baggettes and pastries etc which we ate most days.

The reception staff are very polite and helpful and were always there ready to help (even when we strolled in at 4.30am looking for munchies!!!). The telly is rubbish, the only English channel is sky news, but Cypriot telly does not dub the english films, so we found that the Cypriot channels had English film on with Cypriot subtitles which were ok.

All in all, I found this a pleasant and convenient hotel to stay in, with few bad point and many good ones. I would definately stay there again.

Hope this helps!!


Disappointed in the Aloe

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was quite disappointed in the Aloe Hotel. Having booked a sea-view room by telephone and e-mail, I was suprised to be allocated a side sea-view room overlooking rooftop water tanks on a noisy side street. This was promptly changed, but was a bad start. I had also requested that a friend coming from UK and I be given rooms reasonably close together. This was ignored and we were given rooms on different floors. My first impression in Reception was very good but I was pretty disgusted when I stepped off the elevator and saw the state of the carpets in the hallways- really very dirty and stained with what looked like spilled soft drinks. The room was very clean and comfortable, but not much space for hanging clothes. The walls are dirty and badly need repainted. The hairdryer did not work, nor did the plug in the washbasin, which could not be drained. No non-slip mats in the bath provided. By the end of my stay I was provided with shampoo only, rather than shower gel or shower gel/shampoo combination. The problems with the hairdryer and washbasin were sorted very quickly by the very pleasant staff, but I feel they should have been checked prior to allocating the room. The staff are really pleasant and helpful, I think they are the main asset of this hotel. I only booked B&B and the breakfast was adequate. Again the dining room staff were very pleasant and served the coffee/tea very promptly. I think this hotel has to either undertake a major renovation or drop its prices to reflect its true state. I would be reluctant to book into this hotel otherwise. Last year I stayed a a far superior 3 star hotel for a lot less money. In summary, the staff are lovely and a great asset to the hotel but the Aloe is not worth the money. The above comments could be construed as "nit picking" but in this case you do not get what you pay for!

Overall - a good hotel

from Cpoulter
I read with interest the reviews prior to my stay at the Aloe. Having been part of a wedding party of 20 and not picked the hotel I was pleasantly surprised.

Our wedding catering was wonderful and superbly priced. In general however I was pleased that we were on B&B at the Aloe. Some nights even HB guests have to pay a supplement of up to CY£10 to eat there which is a bit much if you haven't been warned about it. You can eat very well in Paphos for CY£10 locally incl drinks.

The rooms were nice and clean but you need some cunning to avoid the fridge charge of CY£1.50 per day. Take a coolie bag to transfer your overnight cold drinks!

The whole towels on beds thing would be annoying if you want to spend your whole holiday by the pool. We tended to need 4 beds at about 10am and could always get them albeit not by the pool but right at the back backing onto another hotel who go in for the whole Butlins style poolside entertainment very loudly on a mike! If you want a quiet poolside experience then reserve your bed early.

We experienced a night of the Cypriot wedding where 3500 guests descend on the Aloe for cocktails and then 350 people sit down for a meal. All it meant was that we couldn't park in the car park but we had a balcony overlooking the pool where the bride and groom received their guests and found it very interesting and they had a live band playing too. Very nice. You can enjoy the atmosphere this way (illegally(!) having your own drinks and nibbles) on your own balcony.

A nice hotel with nice management.

A tidy Hotel with great Pool areas

from RickyH
Just got back from the Aloe this weekend, myself and my girlfriend travelled to Cyrpus on the 14th Aug till the 28th August. We were both impressed with how clean the hotel is kept. The Rooms although were in need of some minor updating, we could not falut the cleansiness of the hotel, towels changed regually and the room kept very clean. We paid extra for the sea view and we were not disappointed, maybe the only downside being there is a main road in between the front of the hotel and the beach, but that aside the veiw is lovely and you get a great sunset view.

The Breakfast buffet is spot on with a wide range of choice from Sausage, Beans and Eggs to Hams and Cyprian Cheese to Cereal's and Fruit. The Cyrpian night and the Carvary night are also very good value and the food was spot on.

The Pool area is very clean although I feel the management could do more to stop beds being reserved. If you are up in time for breakfast at 7 am you will be fine to get a bed however from 10am onwards all will be taken and most of the beds are taken earlier then 7 am worth bearing in mind if you like a lay in. The two pools are great and the whole set up is very pleasing on the eye.

Prices of drinks and the hotel are a bit steep, two cups of tea 3 CYP which is a bit much and also when enquiring to keep the room for an additonal two hours we were quoted 41 CYP to keep the room which was a Joke.

Overall a very nice Hotel in a good location and we both enjoyed the holiday and the resort of Paphos. Just bear in mind it really is not a cheap holiday in Paphos.

This is not a 4 star hotel

Bring your wallet, you are going to need it. This is a VERY expensive three star hotel. Yes I know it proudly shows 4 stars outside but it's nowhere near. The Pool and food are fantastic, but the rooms are basic and cramped. The air conditioning is poor, we complained 4 times about it and they ignored us everytime!

There was a big banquet on one night we asked about it and where told 'not for English, just cypriots' nice!

Top Local Tips for Paphos

local buses visit old Paphos and market using bus service, bus stop just across road from hotel.

Cyprus is nicer out of season Most people go in summer (May - October) but, unless you are keen on swimming in the sea or outdoor pools, November to January and March can be delightful. There are no crowds, the weather is often just like the British summer at its best (though with cool evenings), and the countryside is green and pleasant. Out-of-season is excellent for moochers and walkers. Best of all, there are many really cheap deals available.

Bargain hunting at the local market in style. Six of us were waiting at the bus stop (outside the Alexander the Great Hotel) to go to the local market, fare 70 cents. A stretch limo taxi pulled up and offered to take us for CYP £1 each - first bargain of the day!
