I chose this hotel after reading many reviews, so unlike a few of the other guests we were not disappointed that there was no entertainment and it was very quiet. We liked the spaciousness of the room, the sea view was amazing, the kitchen area was excellent, with full size fridge/freezer, induction cooker, washing machine and dishwasher and we had two balconies. The food was good with plenty of choices and a good selection of fresh fruit. I had read that there was a distinct lack of fresh fruit on some of the reviews, but this was not the case for us. I did notice however that many of the guests took 4 or 5 pieces of the fruit with them when they left the dining room, so maybe that would explain why there seemed to have been a shortage. There were also comments that the waiting staff didn't smile much but they were very efficient and we found that if we met them outside of the dining room they were friendly enough and again like everyone else, we found Maria in the bar extremely friendly. Our room was cleaned every day except Sunday with towels changed very day and sheets every 2nd day and the cleaners were lovely. All in all we had a lovely holiday and would certainly return. Parts of the hotel would benefit from some TLC but the only negative points for us are detailed below.
This is our second visit to Alexander The Great Hotel in Paphos and we haven't been disappointed .the back of the hotel overlooks a fantastic pool and beyond that the Meditteranean Sea . There is a sandy municipal beach with steps access from the grounds . Sun beds are allocated for your room . You can choose where you want to be and change anytime you want .
Lots of peaceful seating areas in and out .The pool bar and other bars are well run and staff always pleasant . There is a buffet breakfast to suit everyone
All communal areas spotlessly clean as well as bedrooms .
There is entertainment daily and nighttime in Alexander's Bar .
You will get a quieter room if you go for pool or sea view . However we were at the front this time and weren't bothered with traffic noise
The Kaniko Management Team are so good and will ensure you have a good stay .
Fantastic hotle, we enjoyed our time in Elysium, staffs are very helpful, It is a truly a 5 star hotle.
Location is very good, shops and restaurants are walking distance. Be prepared things are not so cheap. Taxi ride from the hotle to the airport cost £30 euro for a 20min journey.

We were very comfortable here, the staff are extremely welcoming and pleasant. This is a very elegant Hotel with plenty of space and a serene atmosphere. The location is fantastic, just above the beach.
Shops, bus station and Harbour are all a short walk away.
