Best hotel in Paphos

Posted 15-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff are so friendly and helpful. Lovely pool area. Superb breakfast buffet. Quiet location but walkable to Paphos Harbour.
Cons: We have children, but bar should be adult only after 8 pm. Also some excellent musicians in lounge area in evenings spoilt by uncontrolled kids
Location: Out of town but we liked that. Paphos very touristy. As expected several building sites around!!! Akamas and inland lovely in spring.
The moment we stepped into the hotel and were greeted by the friendly staff with a welcome drink it set up a lovely holiday. We had partial was view room which was a good size and very clean and comfortable. Superb breakfast buffet and coffee lounge. Half board buffet dinner was good but the dining rooms are better suited to families. We used our allowance to eat in the a la carte restaurants which were superb although a bit pricey. Great guest services where we hired bikes, arranged buggy safari to Akamas national Park (great fun) and hired car. Bikes were good to get around and into Paphos - there is a good boardwalk along the coach to Paphos Harbour (30-45 minutes walk or 5-10 by bike) although not lit so taxi back at night if walk! Excellent outdoor pool complex with pool bar and plenty of loungers which also spread onto large grass area down to private beach. Indoor pool child free in morning and evening which is good. Excellent spa with a good range of treatments, and well equipped gym. Paphos itself not much for us as a bit tatty except for Harbour area and amazing World Heritage Archeology site. As Spring had lovely drives up into Troodos Mountains, and over to Latchi back via mountain monasteries and winery near Panagia.

Direkt neben dem Weltkulturerbe

Posted 01-Apr-2015
Pros: Die Themenbuffets am Abend und das absolut perfekte Personal.
Ideal bei Expedia zu buchen. Taxi vom/zum Airport 30 €. Hotel ist direkt neben den Alten Koenigsgraebern gelegen. Strandzugang fuer aeltere Gaeste schwierig, Felsen. Tolles Frühstücksbuffet, eigene Patisserie.

A fantastic hotel, fantastic staff and facilities.

Posted 11-Mar-2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing really except maybe the speed of the WiFi (but it is free throughout the hotel). Instability of the TV channels which have a habit of freezing
One of the best hotels that we have stayed in. If we return to Cyprus we would definitely make straight for the Elysium.

Wonderful five star hotel

Posted 03-Mar-2015
Location: The hotel gardens border their own beach - and there's a lovely scenic walk around the coast to the port. Virtually next door to Tombs of the Kings.
My wife and I stayed here for a week at the end of February. We were immediately struck by the grandeur of the place - it's certainly the most elegant hotel we've ever stayed in (and we're fairly well travelled!) - and it struck such a contrast to the other beach hotels in the town, which looked rather shabby in comparison. We stayed half board - and were startled by just how good the buffets at both breakfast and evening were. (For breakfast you're even given free prosecco, which made me feel very decadent!) It was out of season, so too cold for us to enjoy the numerous swimming pools in the gardens, but they looked very well appointed and sparkled very pleasingly in the sun! We especially enjoyed the musical entertainment offered in the main bar of an evening - the pianist in particular was excellent. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful - one complaint we could offer about the food is that there wasn't as much variety offered for the vegetarian, but when my wife mentioned this, the kitchen staff were eager to prepare for her dinners of her choice free of charge. The room was spacious, and the bed very comfortable. If I was bothered by one thing, it was that some sound did bleed in through the connecting door to the adjoining bedroom - but I'm especially fussy about that. Really, if you want to indulge in luxury, in a huge hotel that still manages to feel friendly enough you feel you're part of a family, I couldn't recommend the Elysium more highly.

Hôtel de luxe

Posted 28-Feb-2015
Excellent hôtel proche des sites archéologiques de Paphos et loin des barres hôtelières situées de l'autre côté de la baie. Personnel à l'écoute et prévenant. Prestations à la hauteur. Seul bémol : aucun personnel ne parle français.

January escape

Posted 29-Jan-2015
Pros: The staff, interesting and comfortable interiors. Good food, grat view.
Cons: For once I am struggling... Night service comes round a bit early ? Nit-picking really.
Location: Great for historical interest and nice little port rest of town obviously hit by the recession. If you want a beach most are rocky.
We were looking for some rest, relaxation and pampering. And found it here. The staff make or break a hotel and here, without exception they were among the best I have ever encountered.Really friendly and helpful. Many of the staff have been there a long time and had been invested in in terms of training and it showed. Thank you to Ivan and Calva in the restaurants, everyone at Reception and the cleaning staff. Food was great and the surroundings were unique in the best sense with well-desgned and well-kept pools and gardens. The Hotel was large enough to absorb its guests comfortably and the room was very comfortable with a great sea-view. The inside of the hotel did seem like a hyper-active 10 year old with a minecraft fixation had been let loose on it. - 14 different types of pillar ? It shouldn't work but it did very well

Fantastic hotel, staff, food and hospitality.

Posted 13-Jan-2015
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Order summer weather in winter!
Location: Loads to do, bars, restaurants and Kings Avenue Shopping Mall.
This place is geared up in every way for a 5 star experience. Pleasant experience all round. Staff are well trained and helpful, the facilities are clean and the restaurants are not your typical poor food type setting. Food is fantastic and the view is just awesome!

Lovely hotel!

Posted 26-Nov-2014
Everything from start to finish our trip was absolutely brilliant! The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful but the hotel itself it's very beautiful astonishing. I must say we love the guy who was making the freshly omelettes at the breakfast buffet it was delicious and he was so nice and friendly he took the time to bring me a nice piece of cake with a candle and sang me happy birthday as it was my actual bday that day the whole reason we went to Cyprus but we'll definitely be back, we had an amazing trip and a very nice experience :)
