“Terrible!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2006

We got married in Paphos and booked the Eleni as it stated that it catered for children. Would definitely not advise you to go if you have a pram - steps everywhere with no ramps. Food left a lot to be desired. Entertainment - kids disco 8.45 - bingo - 9.30 - adult entertainment - 10 till 10.30 - not what you expect in a four star plus hotel. Staff were very nice but overall I would definitely not recommend this to anybody, sorry. If you have booked and are taking children under 12 months, please note - baby food is not stocked in any of the supermarkets close by and my little girl lived on quavers for 2 weeks!

Would recomend the eleni holiday village to anyone, the food was ecellent very well balanced also checked and changed on a regular basis, the apartments and all areas couldnt have been cleaner, one or two problems with ants also the drains mainly due to people not putting the toilet paper in the bins provided. The staff were all great and very helpfull at all times they made our holiday special we had 8 in our party including 3 children.

Our first time to cyprus could not have been better, we are mid age couple and found the hotal to be well above a good standard the staff were excellent in every aspect. Not much for teens to do unless they go 6km to paphos harbour buses every 15mins priced at only 80cents well worth it. hotel was very very clean 110% happy looking forward to going back next year.

We have just returned from our holiday at the above location. We requested and paid for a 4 star hotel. What a joke!!! I would give this hotel a 2star plus. It is apparently, being 'down graded' on the 1st October to a 3star. (the First Choice rep adviced us)
Good points, our 4yr old son loved the kids club, the food is also very good and the rep from First Choice was understanding.
Poor comments:- The pool area is very grubby, over half of the umbrellas do not work. Most rooms had infestation of ants. on the grassed area, there are rusted metal pipes protruding and the first you realised it's there is when you injure yourself walking /stepping onto them.
We spent much of our time in the 'George Gardens' hotel next door. Where the staff can not door enough for you, it's a genuine 4 star and costs the same as Eleni (cheaper if your self catering) We will be going there next April.

17 family and friends have just returned from the elini, 2 weeks middle of sept for my daughters wedding, we had a wonderful time paid full price for a 4* to make sure we could get in for the wedding but would rate it a 3* the rooms were very clean and cleaned 5 days out of 7, there is a small kitchen in the room with kettle, toaster, fridge, and cooker. there was problem with ants in all 5 rooms we had, just asked for a can of spray at reception that helped a lot. food in restuarant is lovely but had same menu 2nd week, you can get burgers, hot dogs, toasties, chicken nuggets and jackets all with lovely chips and salad served by the pool bar if you prefer 10am-12.30pm and 3pm-5.30pm. also what ive not come across at all inclusive before is all but 2 of cocktails on drinks menu is included that made a nice change, pool great for kids very shallow one end, entertainment by neli and rio they was great and we all got on with them darts, pool, volley ball etc in the day time bingo and quizes etc night time, did miss the evening walks as hotel is a bit far away from everything, bus stop for day trips to phapos or coral bay is a 5min walk away, if you want football or a nice meal away from the hotel all the lads in our party say tixies opposite laura bay hotel is the place to go. couple supermarkets close by, all the staff at the hotel were brill they did us proud for the wedding just a shame not closer to town, kate first choice rep was great and very helpful, overall had a great holiday and beautiful wedding. if you can get in this hotel with a bargain its worth it just not full price that we paid.

We arrived at 10.30 p.m. our 1st impression was room excellent, plenty of room for the four of us, the pool looked excellent shame about the rest. You shouldnt put paper down the toilet but no one came to empty the bins or clean rooms on Sundays and Wednesdays - not very hygenic in the hot weather.
We stayed here for 2 weeks july/august :- 1st week was OK all very repetitive, butlins type entertainment, bingo, karaoke, disco , waterpolo, darts, ping pong though Rio tried his best on his own with 'Nellie' who was 19 ish girl just looking to improve her english.
However by the 2nd week all changed at hotel, bar staff became not very friendly only allowed to order 2 drinks at a time, they ran out of whiskey one night at 10.00 p.m.
George at the pool bar was OK but the rest of the bar staff were an obnoxious lot. They're doing you a favour by being there!
The lovely pool which was the cleanest and warmest we have ever experienced started off lovely but unfortunately during the second week all swimmers endured an epidemic of ear infections, Neither the Hotel Management nor the Reps would hear a bad word against their pool! Guests were sharing cabs to the local Medical Centre for treatment as the epidemic didn't warrant a doctor coming out?
In Summary - the best thing about the Eleni is that it's in Cyprus and the weather was great.
The downpoints of Eleni are too many to mention. Suffice to say, if I was to win a Free 2 week holiday there, I'd give it to my Mother in Law!

Never, never again.
I need a Holiday to get over the Experience!
