If good food, exclellent service and fine facilities are what you look for in a holiday hotel then Elysium is for you. Mr Vastardis and the staff under him deliver all three extremely well. We had a jnr suite and 3 rooms in the Elite Club (four lovely seaview rooms in a row) on half board and enjoyed our week there tremendously. I was relieved that the food was very good; the regular dinner restaurant, Emerald, served varied food of a high standard which was delightfully and artistically presented on the plate. We were so satisfied with dinner and also the Fresh al-fresco lunch restaurant that we almost decided not to bother with their gourmet experience upstairs in the Noble restaurant. But on our last night we did try it and it too was terrific. Not forgetting the super buffet breakfast on the roof with panoramic views of the coastline. High standards of cuisine are very much alive and well at Elysium.
The hotel is very new, only a matter of a few months old, which means that maybe we contributed slightly to their snagging list and I expect that once any minor items have been adjusted or repaired over winter - for example, our jacuzzi bath bubbled most evenings but not every night - guests will be fully impressed by the in-built luxury of the hotel. Clearly a lot of thought, as well as money, has gone into its layout, construction and finish.
The service from the staff was just right; there when you wanted it but never too much. Everyone helped us make the most of our time there, especially Tammy "the answer is yes now what's the question" in the Elite Club. It was great. Oh, and the daily nibbles served both in reception and placed in your room for when you return from the beach. Very nice indeed.
All in all, I recommend the hotel for a most enjoyable break.
