My wife and I have just returned from a two week stay at Elite Suites and we have to say that the experience was wonderful. Although we have stayed in the Rodian Amathus Beach Hotel on several occasions,our only previous stay at Elite Suites was two years ago . At that time we were pleased and would have given it a solid 4.5 Stars.Now,however, we feel that a 5 Star rating is in order. This is because,in the intervening period,there have been some promotions and/or changes in personnel and philosophy resulting in a more finely tuned "team work" approach with the touches that differentiate a higher class establishment from the 4 (or even some 5 Star) norm. For example, staff do not give directions to a location of interest,say the Beach Garden or Spa - they actually take you there.This is the sort of response one would expect at UK hotels we have experienced, like Gleneagles or Stanford Park. This attitude of friendliness and desire to help extends across the whole spectrum of staff from Pool Attendant to F& B Manager - a remarkable achievement.
As others have stated in previous reviews the food is excellent with dinner at the Varkarola (A la Carte) Taverna being an event to savour every night . Although diners' tastes are variable, as a (generally) non-lover of salmon dishes I feel safe in saying that the Salmon Carpaccio ( with Soy and Ginger) is a truly outstanding starter. Main courses are similarly delectable and during the time of our stay the compliments ( mainly from the ladies) regarding desserts - particularly the Lava Cake were many.
Standards of cleaniness are exemplary with daily bed linen changes and twice daily towel changes.
We did not feel road noise was an issue,as those suites that are closer to the road seem to have triple glazing to ensure that one has a peaceful night.
Overall, we would recommend this and feel that any expenditure that one makes over the usual is justified.
We shall return
