Our 2nd Home
We have just returned home from yet another fabulous 2 weeks at the Elysium, it really feels like our 2nd home we love it! Their safety measures during these difficult times are impeccable, not obtrusive in any way yet keeping all their guests safe. Where do we start with our thanks...so many people...Andreas, George, Luigi, Daniella, thank you for everything you have done to make our stay so wonderful, the porters, Evdoxia and the reception staff, the housekeepers, the pool/beach staff, thanks to Magda in the spa for being so helpful and kind. To Yannis at breakfast for his great poached eggs everyday! All the chefs are amazing the food is outstanding. Huge thanks as always to Cynthia, such a credit to this hotel. Our last but by no means least is a massive massive thank you and congratulations to the one and only Marina who has looked after us for the whole two weeks, her fun and warm personality with such professionalism and care, nothing was too much trouble, Marina you deserve huge recognition for being a star!!!! Christos, your team are a credit to the Elysium and we thank you so much for such a wonderful stay and look forward to seeing you all again next year!
Everything and more
From the second you walk in to this property you can see why it is rated a 5* hotel. Some of the best customer service we have ever experienced (and we’ve stayed in many 5* properties) it’s the staff that make this hotel, Evdoxia - front office manager who ensured our stay was rememberable and gave me the most insightful hotel tour. Andreas - restaurant supervisor who ensures you feel like a member of the family and orders you favourite dish to your room (as you mentioned something in passing) And finally the wonderful Mariana who took care of us through breakfast and dinner, a little ray of smiling sunshine who knows what you want before you do! We booked this hotel to celebrate a special occasion and they ensured we felt truly spoilt and celebrated in style. We have already started planning our next trip back and for sure we are looking to book in to the dulplex private pool rooms or suites. If you book this hotel all the rooms will not disappoint, but if you want something a little more special then definitely go for the duplex or suites. The food for breakfast and dinner was plentiful considering we are in the middle of a pandemic, the team are very clear and respectful with regards to current COVID-19 protocols. There was nothing that made us feel uncomfortable or uneasy during our stay. Due to the Cypriot rules you have to be seated to order a drink, so enjoying a drink inside the pool could still happen as long as you got a stool or sat on the ledge. Finally we thought it rude not to try the spa facilities out, ESPA treatment are offered by a team or highly experienced beauty therapists. A great menu of treatments for males and females alike, I couldn’t resist the special offer on products either to continue the spa feeling back home. If you are looking for a quality, spotlessly clean hotel with wonderful facilities and incredible teams of people then this is your place.
Elysium Hotel Review
I have to say after the difficulties getting to Cyprus this hotel swiftly changed my experience and relaxed me instantly. The food included is excellent for both breakfast and dinner whilst throughout the week I continued discovering new parts of the hotel I never knew existed. I am not normally one to take the time to right reviews but a particularly special shout out has to go to George (smoking area for dinner) who has impeccable attention to detail. George taught us a great trick to ensure that our wine always remained topped up without ever having to look around for service. He is knowledgable about the wines, sweet natured, attentive and without fail flawlessly elevated our evening dinner experience. The ambiance, cocktails, views and cleanliness are all excellent. Overall I highly recommend the Elysium hotel.
Fabulous as ever & very safe
In what has been a very difficult year for travellers Cyprus has proven itself to be a bit of an oasis. Admittedly there is the challenge of getting there with the country’s Covid requirements but once there you are assured of a very safe stay. It’s also reassuring to know that everyone on the outgoing plane has been tested and the likelihood they will pick up the virus on the island is very small so the return should be equally safe. We’ve been to the Elysium many times and just love the space, staff, facilities and warm weather. Covid precautions in the hotel strike the right balance – they are visible but also very sensible and not overbearing. Staff wear masks but guests don’t, there’s plenty of disinfection points, a temperature check on entry and ample space for social distancing. Sun beds and tables have all been spaced out and we felt completely safe during our holiday there. We stayed in the Royal wing which is like a hotel within a hotel. The rooms and villas are well appointed and the pool secluded but the many hotel facilities are just a few metres away. The restaurants, bars, food are all excellent and the staff so helpful and friendly – they really do make the difference. In fact life in the hotel felt much like our previous holidays there apart from masks etc. If you are looking for a safe haven with warm weather then Cyprus & the Elysium is a great option.
Beautiful Elysium - We felt very safe.
We have been going to the Elysium for a number of years as do many other people. This year it was challenging to get there but it was well worth it. All the positives about the Elysium are still in place and the changes that have been made because of Covid are very sensible but do not detract from the holiday experience. For example the quality of the food is a major delight especially the breakfast and evening buffets. It is mandatory that hands are sanitised and/or gloves worn before entering the buffets, splash guards are in place and the customers are expected to walk through the buffet in a specific direction. No masks need to be worn, however all the Elysium Team do wear masks. As I say, common sense that does not detract from your holiday. Throughout the hotel hand sanitising stations are available and well used by all. We had a beautiful holiday once again, the sunshine, the food, the pools, the space, the gardens, the beach, the peace but most of all the service. The team are fabulous and look after everyone in a professional and friendly manner. If you can get to the Elysium then I would advise it, you will have a wonderful experience and find some escape from the tough times we all face.
