This was the most wonderful hotel, stunning inside and out with beautiful gardens. The staff were brilliant - very friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful, freshly cooked and so tasty. The whole place was really clean and it had great facilities. The pools were really good and the spa was excellent, I had a few treatments with Sofia who was amazing.
The manager Michael was also amazing. I had an accident on 1st day, not the hotel's fault yet I received 1st class treatment and care from Michael and the staff. They went above and beyond and I really appreciated their kindness & courtesy.
The room was nice and big, the beds very comfortable. We had guests too in the form of local cats which was great for me being a cat lover. Whether you like cats or not this is one fabulous hotel & village and I fully recommend it. Can't wait to go back.
The resort is directly on the beach including 6 pools. The welcome at the reception is friendly and profesional. We asked kindly for a quiet room and Costas organized it. The whole hotel is perfect and clean. There are many places to eat , we enjoyed the beach restaurant where Janis , Christina and Anastasia took good care of us. The food quality and choice is great and price reasonable. Breakfast and dinner at main restaurant is with a lot of choice and good quality. We also appreciated the courtesy taxi to bring us to the Alexander Beach. Thank you for a memorable holiday.

My wife and I have just spent another nine glorious days in the Alexander Beach Hotel & Village, this was our second visit to this beautiful hotel and it won’t be our last (our previous trip was in 2019 prior to Covid 19). My last review about the Alexander detailed all aspects of the hotel such as the location, number of pools, bars etc and it was very positive hence our return visit. This time around I would only have one very minor negative point to make, the resort have introduced a new measure whereby a plastic chain is placed around all the pools between the hours of 18:00 hours to 10:00 hours, the chains appear pointless plus they are ugly and certainly detract from this beautiful resort.
- in addition there are multiple measures in place to keep all holiday makers safe, all staff where face masks at all times, there is plenty of access to hand sanitiser and everyone on site is encouraged to social distance. It should be noted that holiday makers are not required to wear masks whilst on site.
Overall we felt extremely safe whilst staying at the Alexander and we would highly recommend this beautiful resort to all our family and friends, enjoy!
