We were lucky to find out about Elysium from trip advisor, it was rated one of highest hotel in paphos for quality and service. We had earlier booked in Coral beach resort, but trip advisors reviews saved our honeymoon. So, here is my honest feedback:
Location: Fantastic, close to the shops and the harbour. All walk away distance.
Staff: Fantastic: Guest relations (Rita and Cynthia), Waiters, Restaurant managers, they were extremely helpful and made the extra effort to fulfill your whims and fancies. They would do whatever it takes to make u smile. There was a lady on the reception (don’t remember her name, but she was short with red hair). She gave me some good tips to take my wife for a romantic dinner around town. She was really helpful till we sat in our taxi on our departure to the airport.
Prices: Very expensive, but if you are looking for quality, then don’t complain about prices, if u are looking for cheap food and drinks, there are other cheap hotels in paphos one should explore. I didn’t mind paying for anything, as we wanted a good experience and not commodity & we were happy to pay for the experience we received from Elysium.
Food: Breakfast buffet is exhaustive with a fantastic range of everything. We only had supper once in the hotel on our last romantic night, it was a bomb on our wallet, but as I mentioned earlier, we really enjoyed the special attention service & experience and it was worth every penny spend.
Room for improvement:
Internet: Usage on internet and charges are ridiculous. One has to pay 12 Euros per day and can only use it in the lobby. A good hotel being so stingy about internet usage is a no no.
No kettle in the room: If u want hot water, call room service and they might charge you 2 Euros for using room service, which is a bit ridiculous. Though we asked for hot water & honey daily (no charges), they charged room service only once when we ordered for an ice bucket to enjoy our complimentary champagne on our last evening at the hotel.
Would I stay there again? DEFINITELY YES (and wont even bother looking elsewhere)
