and can honestly say I will not be going back there.
I have stayed in Paphos many times in different hotels/apartments/villas and on this occasion decided to stay at the Aloe as the reviews I read on this site were OK and Thompsons gave it a 4T rating.
I knew the location and have stayed nearby the Aloe in the past and it looks a decent hotel on the exterior.Until you go through the doors.
Dark,dismal lobby. Our room was seaview(the only good thing about it) and the furniture was old,tired and grubby.Mould on the bedside lamps and curtains.Dirty carpets(my grandsons feet were black from running around the room with no sandals),spring on side of mattress breaking through,broken/taped up tv remote,cot from the 'ark'.
Bathroom was not bad.Shower was faulty but got that fixed.Towels were changed everyday.
Can only repeat what other people have said about the safe/mini bar.
No tea/coffee making facilities,one English speaking tv channel.
Breakfast was OK but as soon as it is 10 am thats it.
The tiredness extends to outside especially the childrens play area which was overgrown with a hole in the side hedge which led into the field next door.Not very secure.
Entertainment non existent and one large lobby area to sit in with a tv in one section and small shop.
Didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food.
Plenty of good restaurants within 5-10 min walk.
If you stay here don't expect 4 star.More like 2.

notices at the pool side say that you cannot reserve sunbeds but nobody took any notice, dont be afraid to move sunbeds and parasols to other positions, excellent pool for kids.

It was strange finding out that 80-90% of the guests staying in the hotel were senior citizens from the UK. However this was for the good as we both knew that the food would have to be of a very high standard to please them and we were not disappointed.
The breakfast is held over a 3 hour period and it is just a matter of helping yourself to whatever type of buffet breakfast took your fancy with the staff removing dishes whilst you went for your next helping. The same appied for the 3-course evening dinner and each nigh had a different theme but all producing the same high standard and choice. I personally could not get enough of the banana ice-cream which was lovely. The hotel rooms are very clean and the outside swimming pools and surrounding area was big and very clean with no shortage of sunbeds. Only downside was the lack of tea facilities in the bedrooms, the charge for safety deposits keys for the room safes and the charge of Euros 2.50 per day if you were caught using the minibar fridge to cool your own drinks or food. The bar lounge sells plenty of cocktails and beers at Euros 3-5 each and the lunch menu (used once beacause of departure times) is as good as the dinner menu.The hotel will charge you a daily rate should you use the minibar for your own drinks or food so be aware. Also they charge for the use of the room safe key. They provide large towels for daily use at the pool which does help resolve the problem of too much luggage.

The pools were great, the bar relaxing and the lunch at the pool bar fine.
we would easily retrn here and have nothing bad to say.
Cyprus is expensive but probably good value for money.
