We've been to the Elysian twice now, and returned because we loved the convenience of the location on a calm bay (great for letting our toddler play at the beach) and the pool and two great restaurant options. We got a unit in the building closer to the tennis courts this time (because going up and down the hill with a stroller was a killer last time with a one year old.) We love the grounds, and very friendly staff, but the resort has some improvements to make to make it perfect. For starters we awoke the first morning to a loud noise next door and no water at all. Apparently the desalinization pump went out and it took several hours to repair it and restore water (albeit very low water pressure, and terrible temperature control in the shower. It went from very hot to cold and back and forth. Not a good experience when trying to bathe a sandy toddler, with no tub either.) The water situation improved, but only by receiving many water deliveries from an equally loud truck right outside our deck sliders. Understandable considering the water problem had to be fixed, but still, it kinda ruined the peaceful view and quiet. The noise was also coming from the younger guests next door one night. It was late and their voices were so easily heard through the lockout unit doors that open into the adjacent unit. It was manageable with a simple knock on their door, but just a heads up that if you're a light sleeper it will be a problem. We knew going into it what to expect, and honestly the service seems to have improved since last year, but the beds are still very uncomfortable. It makes a visit to the hot tub very necessary to work out the kinks. Unfortunately, the temperature of the hot tub was very often scalding hot. Hot enough to cook a chicken! We could've used about double everything in the kitchen. There were basically only two of everything. We cooked breakfast every day and several lunches/dinners in our unit so it would've been helpful to not need to run a half-empty dishwasher everyday just to have clean utensils, not to mention we had a kid with us, so we needed at least three of everything. Also, a non-stick pan is essential (every unit could use one of those!) So, we love the location, the beach the pool and the restaurants, but there were things we hated about it too. Got a great deal on last minute points reservation through Wyndham, so we took a much needed vacation. However, we may try a different resort next time, because the beds are just killer although the location is fantastic. The staff are really nice and very helpful, but the issues really seemed to be at a level beyond their ability to fix immediately.
Stairs are necessary everywhere, but if you have a stroller or wheelchair you must ask for a unit in...
