“faultless”
Reviewed 23 August 2010

We spent ten wonderfully relaxing days at the elysium and felt thoroughly spoilt by the staff who are exceptional in their desire to please. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in one of the Royal garden Villas, which I can highly recommend. There were two very minor difficulties with the garden parasol and the water fountain which were resolved promptly and with great consideration. Without exception every member of staff that we came into contact with were simply lovely, from the maid service, bar staff, concierge to the friendliness of the gardeners. Worthy of a special mention are Cynthia, who was delightful in ensuring that our stay was to our satisfaction.

Other reviews have commented on the price of the drinks, however what does need to be taken into consideration is the quality of the bar staff, their attention to detail, the setting in which the drinks are served. The cocktails are made generously and therefore we felt comfortable with the cost.

Those staying at the garden Villas have exclusive use of a beautiful pool, with individual waitress service. Complimentary fruit smoothies were bought to us at mid morning and a fruit platter in the afternoon. We were aware that it was possible for those not staying at Royal Villas to use the pool without the staff realizing this and this is unfair to those who have paid extra for the exclusivity. If we could make a suggestion to the management it would be to provide different coloured towels from the rest of the hotel, perhaps burgundy and this would clearly demonstrate to the staff who was eligible to bathe around the pool area and would be a cost effective way of maintaining the Royal Villa guests comfort.

Our stay was faultless, and we have the Elysium staff to thank for that.

Don't normally do reviews but we have returned from a different holiday destination wishing we had paid the extra and returned to the Elysium.
Yes the hotel is expensive but you get what you pay for and are rarely disappointed.
The half board option is a must as your choice of food is fantastic and of such a high standard its never worth going out. Our favourite is the terrace brasserie messina.
Our son is eight and loves the kids club where Roseleen is always there proving a big hit with the children and giving adults great piece of mind.
Service is fantastic and as repeat guests over six visits its great to see the same faces proving that this is a well managed hotel that can obviously keep their staff.
My advice would be don't hesitate to pay the extra it well worth it!!!

I was visiting Cyprus with my family and we were staying with the grandparents and my wife and I decided to escape for a couple of days. I have personally chosen the Elysium based on what I saw on the tripadvisor and I am glad I did.
The first impression we got when we arrived was impressive. We drove to Elysium and I parked the car and we started walking towards the entrance with two hand luggage. To my surprised before we moved far a porter came to pick them up and directed us towards the reception. The check in was very quick and within few minutes we were in our room. The room had a site sear view which was more than good enough for us and it was nicely decorated and spotless although not the biggest or the most luxurious I have been in this current year . Also a nice platter of fruits was waiting for us.
During our stay we tried few of the restaurants and in call cases the service was excellent. The breakfast at Lemonia was amazing (I always find the breakfast offering in hotels in Cyprus excellent but this was at a different league) and despite been packed the service was outstanding. We also tried the Epicurean terrace restaurant and the service again was excellent. As my wife did not want any wine and I did not want to have a bottle by my self the waiter offered me a number to options not on the menu so as to enjoy it more with my dinner. The presentation of the food was excellent and I love the starters but the main although very good I had a bit more expectations but again I cannot fault it. For both of us the highlight of the restaurants was the Mediterraneo where we had lunch. My calamari was excellent but the Octopus that my wife had was one of the best we have ever tasted
We also been to the Astria bar in all evenings and I had one of the best Mojito I ever had. (If you like it then order the Napoleon Mojito next time you are at the hotel). The bar is nice and relaxing and is the perfect close of the day before you go to bed
In addition to that during the day we spent the time around the swimming pool and a bit by the beach. Both my wife and I were impressed with how clear the whole gardens were and how well maintain everything is. Also we have notice that the staff were doing everything possible to accommodate the needs of all the quests and somehow beds and umbrellas were appearing from nowhere for everybody. That what I call a great 5* hotel service. One nice touch was the cold towel we got at around midday... Little things make the whole stay more enjoyable
Last but not least the location is great for Paphos. If you do not mind walking Kato Paphos and the harbor is around 30 minutes walk through the beach path that takes you to the castle. Its a bit of a long walk but the sea breeze is nice and keeps you going
Both my wife and I commented after we left that the Elysium is in par with some of the best hotels around the globe we have visited over the years and we are definitely coming back with the first opportunity

I will like to write our coments about ,with out any question the best hotel of cyprus , we dont even think about another place when next time coming back to cyprus , the rooms , the service and the top class food in all the restaurants make the difference ,
I was reading here some people compliand about the price , but if you go to a five star hotel , you know how are the prices , and what you get for ,
If you take a meal in any restaurant of the hotel you know the food and the service will be the best , you can not comparate thius with a restaurant outside of the hotel where all are tourist traps
the decoration of the hotel s unique and top class ,
And also something we want to remark is the training of the staff , we was surpice when plenty people talk in russian , that was great for us , even when the head chef talk with us in russian and take care of our question
great and well done ,, for sure will be back

From the second we arrived and the  concierge welcomed us telling us that Elysium means paradise. Every box has been ticked. Each staff member wants your Elysium experience to be great. Not one member of the hotel staff can be critiqued in a negative way. The food is exceptional and dispels the image of hotels can't do good food. In the morning breakfast is enhanced by the enigmatic and wonderful Marios the omelette chef plus he makes all the Haluomi Cheese (I watched him one afternoon, fascinating). The accommodation, location and customer focus is truly wonderful. Please stay here I assure you. You will have the best vacation ever.

The Elysium Hotel was superb, great service, good food, fantastic pool and attentive staff. The hotel was seriously let down by its location. The surrounding area was completely awful full of nightclubs, cheap restaurants and topless bars. The harbor is a good 45 minute walk through areas which reminded me of Spain at its very worst. If you visit stay in the hotel and don't leave until it is time to fly home.
