This was our second stay at the Elysium but the first time late in the season (November 13th-20th). The hotel is just fabulous, a complete oasis of peace and luxury. What makes the Elysium shine above the others is the wonderful staff. They are so friendly and helpful but completely professional. Everyone we came across from the porters, receptionists, maids and especially the restaurant staff were all so helpful and friendly.
We went half board this time and each night had a different theme. The food was of a very good standard but we particularly enjoyed the Cypriot night and also the Oriental night. We had the option of trying the other restaurants within the hotel (15 euros supplement per person against half board) and would recommend you try O'Shin - Japanese/Oriental - pricey but the food was out of this world. The food on the Oriental night was prepared by the same chef from our visit to O'Shin and the food was of the same high standard. We made friends with several of the waitresses but have to mention one in particular, Irene, a lovely lady who was outstanding in looking after us whether at breakfast or for our evening meal. She always recognised us and gave us a warm welcome. Thank you to them all.
The hotel is well situated to walk into Paphos along a paved coastal path to the harbour, fort and mosaics. We decided to drive into the Troodos Mountains for the day and encountered Cyprus' first snow of the season. This was a lovely experience as it felt so unreal to get back to the Elysium where it was still 25 degrees and sunny. The hotel put up their Christmas decorations during our stay which were very pretty and gave a twist to our usual holiday photos!
I did notice the Elysium proudly displayed their TA Award for this year which is more than well deserved. Wonderful hotel and the plave you have to stay at if you visit Paphos.
