I have to say that our 1st stay at the Elysium was wonderful. A very helpful staff(Eberth is one of the amazing front desk people) and our housekeeper, Juan, made everything wonderful. In fact, we are going again the end of this coming September. They have a great continental breakfast. The resort is only a block and 1/2 from the... More

This guest resort makes you feel at home and Eberth and Andrew go out of their way to make you feel at home. They cater to your every need. I have been to 80 countries and can state unequivocally, that matter where you go, you do not want to feel like a stranger. They were able to condense the key... More

Elysium was one of the 2 gay resorts that offered a pet-friendly extended stay option for me and my pups during my relocation to Fort Lauderdale. The 1 bedroom apartment I reserved was much bigger, had many more updates and amenities than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. The staff has gone above and beyond to make me feel... More

Review is based on overall experience and does not focus on a missing light bulb or mildew in the tropices. With that said, I can honestly say that our stay at the Elysium was a comfortable and very nice experience. I would like to complement both Andrew and Ebert for the excellent customer service throughout our stay. These guys are... More

The Elysium has a new manager named Andrew and he is doing everything he can to accommodate his guests. Because he has such a good attitude all the staff follows his lead.The location is great. Nice pools and a great hot tub. The grounds are very tropical. It is one of the quality guest houses but priced substantially below the... More

I spend 100+ nights per year in hotel/motel rooms and have experienced many gay guest houses around the country and locally. Regardless of a reasonable rate and friendly staff; there was just too many things wrong for us to return or recommend to others. Some of the negative highlights: Checking in took way too long. 15+ minutes with no explanation... More

We have been coming to the Elysium for 10 years. We have seen it when things were shiny and (mostly) new. We have also seen it tarnish over the years. The little things, like the ripped, or even missing, blue curtains decorating the outside of the south building. The awning over the windows of 215 facing the pool. The green... More
