“Fantastic would highly recommend”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

I visited this hotel with my partner on 14 june and had booked a one bedroom deluxe suite.

On arrival we were taken to the elite lounge to check in. The member of staff knew our names and we were offered refreshments. The suite was spacious and had a fantastic view of the beach and pool.(2607)

The maid service was exceptional and drinks and snacks were left in the room every day. Breakfast on the roof terrace offered many choices from the buffet or the kitchen and the staff were very attentive.
The hotel is very clean spacious and all the staff were extremely professional without being intrusive. We ate in the emerald restaurant and again could not fault the choice of buffet or choice from the main menu.

On the first evening we ate at the noble restaurant which was again fantastic.
If I had any criticism it would be the evening entertainment which was abit tame but you only have falaraki a short distance away if you want it more lively.

Rhodes town is only 15 mins in a taxi or the bus and well worth a visit.

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel. The best place I have ever stayed.

Check in will likely take a long time as the staff is extremely slow in finding reservations and doing the paperwork. There is no wifi in the rooms (sometimes you can get a signal on your balcony). You have to sit in the lobby to get wifi. The rooms are not well maintained. My room phone had a loud buzzing noise which meant it was impossible to make calls. The towel rack over the tub was broken and falling down. I complained about both but only the phone was eventually fixed. They kept bringing fewer and fewer towels each day until by the last day I was down to one bath towel, no bath mat, hand towel or washcloth. The "modern" design of the lobby is nice but the furniture is worn. The staff try to be nice but they seem over their heads. The location is in the strip of large concrete hotels, so you don't really feel like you are on a Greek island. I could have been at a bad hotel strip in Florida.On the plus side, the breakfast buffet is terrific.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, do not get a room in building 1. These are rooms numbered 1xxx such as 1408. Thes...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for your comments.
We would like to inform you that we never had any issues about the speed of our check-in process. We do appreciate your comments, however in all 5 star hotels check-in procedures need to follow specific steps.
In the past there were a small number of rooms where our guests experienced wi-fi connectivity issues primarily due to the fact that all of our rooms have environmentally friendly glass panels acting as heat blockers, therefore reducing energy waste. As a result, intensity of wi-fi signal in the specific rooms that are located at some distance from the wi-fi antennas was lower, something that had an effect on specific models of Internet enabled devices. Additional access points have already been installed to strengthen the signal.
We will further investigate your claim about the number of towels that were at your disposal, since what you have described is not in accordance with our policies and procedures.
Finally, in our website there is a detailed “Location” section with maps and satellite images (via Google maps) that enable our potential guests to have an accurate description about the surrounding area.
We are sorry that your stay with us did not much your expectations.

Kind regards,
Elysium Resort & Spa

They say sometimes it is not a good thing to go back if you have had a lovely time somewhere, as second time round can ruin memories. Not so with the Elysium. We had a wonderful time again. The staff and management could not have been nicer, and food still of the same high standard.
Our room was on the fourth floor 1443, and the view took your breath away, perfect. We have read some of the bad reviews on this hotel, and wonder just what people expect. Bad WiFi, you're on holiday !!!!!!!!! Treat staff as you wish to be treated, and you get the same treatment back. There is not one thing we could find to fault this hotel, will we go back a third time. YOU BET.

Room Tip: Try and get a high rise for the lovely views of the bay.

Elysium is a good option for a few day stay in Rhodes.

The resort is very nice - large pools with plenty of room and also beach front, with plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs at both the pool and the beach.

Location is convenient. With nice facilities and being beach front, its a good place to just stay and relax + the old town is a bus ride or ~18euro / 15min taxi ride away - this is a great place to spend the afternoon and have dinner. Faliraki is also only ~10mins away, but wouldn't really recommend going there unless you are looking for some sloppy party hard. Lindnos is about an hour drive away, and is best done by rental car (you can get it on site) - you can't really go to Rhodes without going there - great to spend a couple hours walking around, walk up to the acropolis, and then chill for a swim in St Pauls bay on the other side.

Rooms are modern, well equipped, and all with sea view. Best to ask for a room in the main building - the two satellite buildings are right next door, so no inconvience at all, but they are closer to the next hotel down the road that plays loud music, which won't disturb you unless you like to sleep with your window open.

The included breakfast is delicious with tons of local and internaional food options and fresh juice.

Service overall excellent with all staff very friendly. They do have a silly towel policy though that is a bit over-protectionist and I think a bit unfriendly for a 5 star. You have to go pay a cash deposit at the reception to receive towel cards, then go to the towel desk by the pool to exchange your towel for a card.

We stayed at this hotel for the first two weeks in June.We arrived at around 10pm evening,we were offered champagne while checking in.We stayed on the 6th floor with a great sea view,dressing gowns in the room, free safe and fridge,a bottle of wine waiting for us.The towels were changed everyday,bed changed every other day,great maid service,there are two buttons next to the door press green when you want your room made up or red not to be disturbed a great idear.The pool bar and beach bar are very relaxed drinks are a little expensive but are in line with other hotels.Well we could not praise the staff enough from breakfast to dinner.I defy anyone not to put on a little weight when eating in this hotel the food is superb,we'll worth doing dinner bnb there is no where really round about.There was never a need to save a sunbed there's plenty,even by the sea.Going back to the food I am a vegi and there was plenty of choice for me.Entertainment was ok quite relaxed which we like.To sum up this hotel fantastic food, fantastic staff great location on the beach, a great big chill out.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors better views

Very friendly staff, outstanding location, excellent food, beautiful beach and pool. However, several things that are incompatible with this being a 5 star resort - there is effectively no wireless internet in the rooms, there are no tea/coffee making facilities in rooms (nor will they provide them if they are requested), no iron, no clock radio. The internet is the main problem though - it is very poor.

Room Tip: Take a wired internet adapter if you have a Macbook.
