We've been to the Elysian a couple of years ago with friends who own time shares and, other than a beach that had been badley in need of sand in the wading areas, the experience was pleasant overall.
This recent trip was completely different. In total agreement with a recent reviewer concerning front desk staff attitude. Rooms are in dire need of repair and make over...more than just a new coat of paint. Air conditioners may be from the 70's and give an evening effect of laying near an airport ruwany.
The two saving graces were the smaller beach cafe and "Roberts" , the full restaurant. Quality of food was excellant and service was impecible.
I felt bad for my friends who fell in love with the area years ago enough to commit to the investment and have had to endure countless battles with previous management and now with Windham , the new owners, who seem to be floundering in their efforts to turn things around after 3-4 months. The location is beautiful and can be magnificent. Right around the corner from the Ritz, but unfortunately for the Elysian, the location is the only thing they have in common. And honsetly, we found "Roberts" restaurant a much better dining experience than the Ritz...but, sadly, we couldn't live or sleep in Roberts.More
