stayed at the Eleni holiday village from the 8th-22nd August with my dad and little sister. Overall the hotel is okay. There are good points and bad points.
Hotel and rooms are clean and well maintained. The main ReceptioI area is nicely furnished and cool with good air conditioning. (needed in the Cyprus heat!)
Nice big, clean pool with a lifeguard.
bar staff and culinary staff are all reasonably friendly.
The rooms were cleaned 5 times a week, and the air conditioning was included in the price and worked fine.
Decent area- the bus to Paphos town was only a short bus ride away (bus tickets only one Euro for everyone!) and also up the road from the hotel there ate several bars and restaurants for in the evenings. (We reccomend the New Horizon pub. cheap, decent food and free wifi! Signposted all around the area around the hotel.)
Nice little shop in the hotel with all the basics for when you've (inevitably!) forgotten something!
food was 'okay'. whilst my father had pretty much no problem with what there was- me and my younger sister really struggled some days. there was a lack of 'plain', universally liked options (e.g. plain chicken breast) so quite a few times we were stuck with just chips for lunch and dinner. Breakfast wasn't awful- eggs, bacon, sausages, beans etc. For quite a few evenings we ended up having to eat out- which was expensive! if you're willing to eat anything (like my dad!) you'll be fine- but if you have young children or you're picky eaters, I recommend half
board or bed and breakfast.
Internet access- whilst the Eleni holiday village boasts Internet access and wifi, what they don't tell you is that it is very expensive. For an hour and a half on their computers it costs 7 euros, and for an hour and a halfs worth of wifi its 5 euros for an hour and a half. there is also no other option to buy a shorter amount of time- its an hour and a half or
THE SUNBED ISSUE. we did have a hell of a lot of trouble getting sunbeds. I've never known a hotel let people leave their towels on their sunbeds 24/7, but it was allowed here! after a few complaints to reception, from us and other guests, they did attempt to fix the issue by signposting that if towels were left on the sunbed for too long, they would be removed. This really was greatly appreciated, however this just resulted in people not only hiding their towels under the sunbed lid but also your towels being removed when you went to the hotel restaurant for lunch!
despite some things not being so great about this hotel- it is worth a try. The location is great, and the pool is lovely and Cyprus really is a gorgeous place. I do reccomend going half board or bed and breakfast if you're a picky eater, as nearby there are some great places to eat. thanks for reading!
