Great hotel on great beach with another 3 great authentic coves with fab beach bars within 10 /15 mins walking distance
Hotel Food was lovely and plentiful with loads of choice , staff all really nice ..
Room good with great pool and sea view ....spa great we spent whole day in here .
10 mins taxi drive from rhodes town and about 35/40 mins from lindos , both worth a visit.
Only minor bad points was no iron in room and getting charged extra 40 euros to stay in room till 6pm .......but I don't think this would stop us going back

Room Tip: Room 2502 is in middle block with sea view

If you want to visit Rhodes in a superb environment, you should stay at Elysium:
- the food is superb: even the buffet restaurant (main dish served at the table except on Sunday and Monday) is fantastic. Every morning fresh orange juice is a nice extra. The 'Noble Restaurant' (panoramic on the top floor) is great and deserves a star. The 'Fresh-restaurant' serves nice health-food.
- the pool is very nice: we were in Elysium the last week of August and the first of September, and you always have seats. Towel service (with a warant): change as much as you want
- the beach hurts your feet a bit (pebbles), so get good slippers, but the sunbeds and parasols are very nice
- environment: the hotel tries to take into account the environmental aspects (so don't change your towels too much ;-))
- the room was very nice: good A/C, nice beds and bathroom, small safe, nice terrace,... upon arrival you receive in the fridge a bottle of water and white wine. During your stay, you can use it for your own beverages.
- staff: very very nice people everywhere, always at the service of the clients. Only the staff at the pool bar is not very efficient. Because the rest of the hotel is so great, I'm not going into details.
- animation: limited discrete animation (yoga & aqua gym) - the way we like it. Unfortunately, the neighbouring hotel has some 'louder' animation program, so you can hear their music while lying at your pool. Luckily this is limited to two times a day.
- spa: it looked great but we did not use it

If I can name one downside, it is the prices of the local consumptions: I understand that a cocktail costs 8,5 - 11 euro as you are not obliged to drink a cocktail. However, if a large bottle of sparkling water (they only have San Pelegrino, 75 cl) costs 5 €, I think it is a bit over the top. I cannot believe that the hotel profit has to come from the sales of water... Luckily there is a small supermarket in the hotel that sells 0,5 l sparkling water at 0,6 €. However, when you rent a car (good idea!), you should pass by a carrefour/lidl, where 1,5 l of non-sparkling water costs only 0,35 €...

However, this does not make the hotel any less good: it is the best place at Rhodes to enjoy a relaxing and gastronomic holiday! - go for it ;-)

Room Tip: As the neighbouring hotel can put on some 'nice' music, it is best to stay as close as possi...

We decided to go for a 7 day-stay at Elysium based on the stellar reviews this hotel has on both Booking.com and Tripadvisor. Let me tell you that what we received was precisely what we were hoping for: a beautiful room with a great sea view, high quality service from the hotel staff and stellar dinner arrangements (that succeeded in getting me to put some weight on :P).

The hotel is situated 10 minutes away from both the city of Faliraki and the splendid Kalithea Springs. Be prepared to spend 5 minutes more for a quick acces at the Faliraki Aqua Park, one of the best entertainment experiences i have ever had.

This is not another hotel, this is a unique resort. Not only due to the natural beauty nor to the proximity with the town of Rhodes. It has the best services I ever met in Mediterranean countries. Good positioning smart personnel and above all excellent cuisine.
Receptionists were fast and friendly, employees very helpful and the food had quality and quantity. I would like to mention Michalis and his team (Aristomenis and Peter) for the absolute dinner experience.
When back in Rhodes my selection will be absolutely the same.

I've stayed there last summer (Aug. 2012) for 3 days, together with my wife's family members and their kids, so we were a group of 14 people. The rooms we've received were very nice & well-decorated, but located at the farrest building. This meant that every time we wanted to go to the dining room or use other facilities located at the main buiding, we had to march a few good minutes in the humid August heat... At least the pool is stretched along the hotel buildings, so getting to it is quick & easy. I can confirm another review that mentions the poor quality of the "public" wifi and the lack of it at the hotel rooms. The food was absolutely excellent! Wide varaiety of delicious dishes, served & decorated at the highest standard - the same as you get at expensive gourmet restaוrants. However, as the beverages at dinner are an extra (as in most half-board packages), we were charged quite a lot for soft drinks and even for water! Another thing that I can say about this hotel, is that it's no so kids-friendly: there are no kids club/activities/facilities other than a small slide on the lawn near the kids pool... so families with young kids will find this hotel a bit boring for them. I realize that this 5-star hotel is luxurious and quite prestigious, but personally I would have prefered a less "posh" and more friendly hotel for a summer vacation in Rhodes...

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the main building or the at one that is closest to it...
