“Ideal Winter Warmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just returned from a weeks winter break at the Elias Beach. You will be welcomed by a friendly efficient front desk staff in an impressive reception surrounding. The impressive surroundings carry on into the Mocha Cafe/bar area where a warm,cosy feel can be had by relaxing on the cleverly arranged sofa/cushion seating areas.As this was a winter break we did not expect to receive evening entertainment and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the entertainment we received. This is the best hotel entertainment we have experienced and a big thank you goes to the hotels in house animation team of Dean,Kim,Ollie and Lucy. We miss those Rat Pack routines.
The hotel was on an all inclusive basis and we found the food of an exceptional standard. Although the choice was not as large as other hotels we have experienced the quality was of a high standard.We found all the house wines available palatable.
The hotel accommodation was in one of their Superior rooms which was a little disappointing as the room lacked a few of the finishing touches expected and had a problem with ants, even though we were on the fourth floor, but this still did not spoil our experience.
The pool area was not heated due to being winter so was cold, but there was sufficient sun beds in a very well maintained garden/pool setting and the weather was a very comfortable twenty five degrees on average.
All the staff were found to be very pleasant and helpful and the cleanliness of the hotel was exemplary.
The hotel is a fair distance from the center of Limassol but is easily reached by the number 30 bus, obtained just outside the hotel for a one euro fare.
All in all we had a lovely experience at the Elias beach and would definitely recommend to others and will definitely consider a return in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Sea view room.

Elias Beach Hotel is the perfect hotel for a relaxing holiday - away from the crowds, nice layout, beside the sea, great food and wonderful hospitality.

We stayed from 11-15 Nov, just when the summer crowds have gone home. The weather was lovely for seeing the sights and the hotel was not too crowded. Very helpful and attentive staff. What I enjoyed most was the sea/beach which is just a 200metre walk from the hotel. Guests can sit out on the beach or swim in the hotel's pool.

Location is good as hotel is only a short distance to Limassol's old town.

Food especially breakfast at the hotel is very good - a great spread of food.

Would recommend this hotel.

We have recently returned from a 16day stay at the Elias Beach .The hotel facilities, services and its beachside location are perfect for a quiet ,relaxing holiay .The efficency and friendliness of the staff from the front desk , dining room and bedroom teams was exemplory .Although we had booked independently the front desk arranged excellent trips for us into the Trudos and to North Cypress .
The bus service from the front door into Limassol was frequent ,cheap, and reliable in clean airconditioned busses.The walk to the ruins of Amathus takes40 minues on an easy seaside path,with a covenient stop at the Blue Berry bar at halfway.
For those like us on half board there are several very well stocked supermarkets very nearby .

Booked a last minute week in early November at Elias Beach. Allocated a "Mountain view" room which was in fact a view of the car park and main roads behind the hotel and was pretty noisy (especially the motorbike group on Sunday morning!). Didnt spend too much time in the room so not really a major issue but sea view room would have been nicer. The room was fine and kept clean.
As it was now the Winter season we were limited to one restaurant to eat in plus the pool bar which gave out sandwiches,from what I could tell. The food was very nice although I have had better selections at other AI hotels but this was during the summer period and I assume they cut things back for Winter?. The hotel did appear quite empty though I was told it was full.Always got a sunbed and the pool was empty. (The sea was much warmer than the pool).
The beach wasnt anything special , grey sand and about 10 metres wide, but was OK and the hotel had some sunbeds/umbrellas there
The staff were fantastic and happy and helpful especially in the Mokka Bar
The gym was OK, could do with a rowing machine.
The cocktails were AMAZING. No scrimping on the alcohol in them at all.
Didnt see much of the entertainment team, apart from a quiz on a bit of paper each day that you completed alone and put in a box, and one day when they asked if we wanted to do archery. They could have been more involved on the two thunder/heavy rain days we had ie organising a live quiz or something as a lot of people stayed in the bar area.
The hotel grounds are lovely and it all looks very nice indeed.
All in all very much enjoyed time at the hotel

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent vacation even for a last minute week early in November.

We are happy to see that you have enjoyed most of your stay despite the few challenges such as the noisy tones from the motorbike group that stayed in our hotel at the same time. Glad to see that this aspect didn't affect the rest of your stay.

Thank you for your constructive feedback regarding some parts of our facilities and services, which have all already been taken into consideration.

Special thanks for the great feedback regarding our staff's helpfulness especially the team members in the Mokka Bar.

Looking forward to welcoming you back to the Elias Beach hotel in the nearest future!

Not long back from a weeks stay at the Elias Beach, near Limassol. Beware, it is over 10 kilometers from the centre of old Limassol so keep that in mind if that's were you'd like to be close to. That said the Elias Beach has a great waterfront position and makes the most of this; the aptly named Sunset pier can be dressed up for events such as weddings.
On arrival we found what appeared to be a 1970's building updated and in very good condition overall. The check in was pretty efficient, and were soon in our 5th floor, (top floor) sea view room (picture). The Porter explained all the details of the room and left us to it. The standard room we had was enough for the two of us with good wardrobe space, a desk, very comfy armchair and stool, and well decorated bathroom. After a while it was evident the finish to the rooms was not quite robust enough. The cupboard containing the minibar (it had some complimentary water, fizzy drinks and orange juice in - a great detail) had a loose and ill fitting door. Maybe end of season wear and tear - or just not fit for purpose. The towel rail in the bathroom was beginning to loosen too, and the door furniture to the bathroom was also getting a little loose. I accept these are minor details but they were noticeable, so raising albeit feint concerns about the rest of the hotel. That said I should not have worried.
Overall the place was clean and tidy; the housekeeping team did very well indoors at keeping the guest rooms and public areas well presented. Similarly the outside spaces were well kept; the relatively chilly pool cleaned by the attentive life guard; there seemed to be sufficient sunbeds at the end of the October/early November; high season may see lots of early morning towel placing. Beyond the pool area with its friendly pool bar staff were lovely grassed areas and foot paths that were home to more seafront sunbeds and a few steps down to the sandy beach (pictures). In early November we found the sea water warmer than the hotel pool so spent more time swimming there. The necessary foot shower could have been closer to the beach, and again of stronger construction but it served its purpose.
The staff were all friendly and helpful and generally very efficient; we noticed they were much quicker at serving than the 'grand' hotel next door when it came to bar service. The drinks were well priced and the cocktails well made. We were not on an all inclusive deal as were many of the patrons, just bed and breakfast. The choice at breakfast was extensive enough for all tastes; we had a couple of snacks at other times and all were cooked and presented to a high standard. I cannot comment on the dinners.
The last observation that concerns an area for improvement is the elevators (lifts); the two did sometimes struggle to cope with the numbers in this 174 room hotel. Whilst accepting that no waits were too long for us we noted some anxious people at check out times with lots of luggage trying to get to Reception from all floors and the lift service was not keeping up.
So whilst such details as wonky furniture and occasional lift waits seem little things they were just enough to make this review only very good rather than excellent. That said, I'd love to go back and sit under the trees, have a dip in the sea and enjoy a frappe.

Room Tip: Ask about an upgrade to a sea view before you go; we did it was good value.

We had a wedding at Elias Beach Hotel on 25.10.12. As we only had 6 months to plan the whole thing and the tickets to Cyprus are so expensive in summer, we decided not to visit the hotel beforehand. Needless to say I was very nervous about everything: the hotel itself, venues, food, rooms, bridal hair and make up, flowers... the list is endless. But from the first second we arrived to the hotel all my fears and worries disappeared. It is the MOST AMAZING hotel with the MOST FRIENDLY stuff, who did their best to make sure our wedding day is perfect. We had 40 guests all in all, all from different countries and cultures, but all of them equally LOVED the wedding and the hotel. I think it is the most beautiful place to get married, and the people who work at the hotel are BRILLIANT at weddings and everything related to them. I would recommend it to everyone, not just for people who are thinking of having a wedding there, but for EVERYONE who wants to have a enjoyable and memorable holiday in Cyprus.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a nicer sea view

This hotel is great value for a late break. I was at a conference in the next door hotel, which was much more expensive, and it was hard to see why. We had a lovely seaview room, high up with great views of the bay and sunsets. Limassol is no picture postcard, but it managed to look good in the sun. The room was kept very clean. It was the end of season and a few loose bits but I noticed the workman were going round the empty rooms sorting all this out. The staff were very friendly and much better than our previous hotel in Cyprus and the hotel next door. I liked the bar, and the water feature. No weddings whilst we were there. Free wifi! The spa looked nice, but no time! I would imagine that in the summer it could get busy. We were b and b, but many were AI. I think you got better mixs in the bar! Chesters across the road is good for food. I would certainly go their again for a late or early break.

Room Tip: High up and seaview
