I have just returned back having spent 11 nights at The Elysium Hotel and Spa Resort. I travelled witg my partner from England and this was our first holiday together. From start to finish it was fantastic.
We arrived late evening, after a 20 taxi transfer from the airport and check in was smooth, they explained everything from breakfast, pool towel hire, lifts, spa, supermarket etc and we received complimentary champagne which was a nice touch.
Our room was suitable for us, clean, with an amazing view of both the pool and sea which looked great during the day as well as at night. The room was cleaned daily and towels changed regularly.
Breakfast was great, so much to choose from and good quality too, same goes for the evening meals too. We were half board and rather satisfied. I did think the drinks were pricey but that is expected from a 5 star hotel.
The hotel itself was clean, stylish and grounds were well maintained too.
There was always enough sun loungers, pool was huge so was never over crowded.
Although the beach wasn't sandy it wasn't an issue, beautiful clean clear waters with great views. The pool and beach bars were nice, we enjoyed relaxing in the shade for an hour or two each afternoon.
The entertainment was low key but was enjoyable if you wanted a quiet chilled out evening.
The spa was a perfect place to relax. I had a re-balancing facial and my partner had a back massage. We felt revitalised afterwards and just chilled out in the jacuzzi, sauna etc... There was a lot of wasps by the spa pool though which prevented people from using it.
The location of the hotel is perfect, close to Faliraki for an upbeat wild party style of night out, or the Old Town in the opposite direction, bustling with shops, restaurants and bars with a great atmosphere near the harbour. The staff at the hotel were attentive, happy to arrange taxis for us or see to any other enquiries we had.
On top of this the weather was amazing! Our holiday rep was helpful and we booked a boat trip and spent a day at the local water park, both were great experiences and value for money.
I have so much more I could say about my fabulous time in Rhodes! I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family and would love to return next year! Thank you all for a lovely holiday!
