We were transferred to the Elysium resort from another hotel (the aegean blue hotel, which was horrible) and couldn't have been more lucky. We had to pay a little extra but it was worth every penny. The Elysium is an incredible hotel. The location is great with a big private beach and it is very very peaceful. The pool is great and even though the hotel was full, there were always plenty of sunbeds during the day. The hotel is cleaned to perfection, you can eat of the floors. The housekeeping in the whole hotel was incredible. The housekeeping in our room (which was also very very nice, a standard room by the way) made a lot of little efforts that made our stay very comfortable. For example, we asked for seperate single beds but there was 1 big bed that consisted of 2 single ones. The first night we pushed the beds apart a little bit and the next day our room was totally turned around so our beds were on each side of the room, which was a lovely thing to come back to. Another day the housekeeping had just cleaned the room when my dad quickly went to get something in the room, the moment he left our room the maids cleaned the whole floor again because they saw him entering it, really amazing! The whole staff is very friendly, helpful and are soooooo quick to help you when you report something. The food was great as well, very large choice for breakfast (and also for example: fresh orange juice) and very hygienic. The buffet at dinner was also delicious. The main course (fish, meat or a vegetarian dish) was great at some times but sometimes not really our taste, but still not worth mentioning as a complaint. Another little surprise was a yummy chocolate birthday cake that was waiting for me in our room on my birthday, so lovely! The hotel is also decorated with a lot of taste and comfortable. The only thing that bothered me (and a lot of other guests) were the uncomfortable sunbeds, which were too hard. Conclusion? If you are looking for peace and quiet, quality, service and overall an amazing holiday, then book the Elysium (or maybe the marquise which we heard is great too, it's from the same chain of hotels). It's a little peace of heaven on earth!
