“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Recently visited the Elias hotel staying all inclusive during the half-term week in October. Being my first all inclusive holiday, I didn't really know what to expect, however, I have to say I was very pleased all round with the service we received. Upon check in, we actually arrived later than the all inclusive deadline of 11pm, however, the woman on reception had kindly told the bar staff to allow us to have a free drink on the all inclusive package- a very nice touch! We then went out on to the terrace area of the mokka lounge, and were taken in by how peaceful and pleasant everything was. Being night time of course, there wasnt going to be much of a view other than the hotel grounds, but they were well lit, and added to the calm and relaxing atmosphere.
Our room was very nice, clean, well equipped and the maid service was excellent. Our room was a 5th floor room with a sea view, and I have to say the view from our room was breathtaking, with a view out onto the beach and the lovely blue sea, with Limassol port and town visible in the far distance, added to by the fact the sunset was directly visible from the balcony, which gave a lovely end to the day!
The hotel is situated in a relatively remote area, around 10km from Limassol town itself. Around the hotel there are a few bars and restaurants in a square just opposite, along with 3 supermarkets, an "Irish bar" and a few car rental shops. Other than the hotel next door, that was pretty much it in terms of the surroundings. The hotel is however, situated just off a main road, which has regular buses running throughout the day and into the evening. I have to say the bus service was excellent, as we caught the bus from directly outside the hotel into Limassol which was completely hassle free, more than can be said for bus services in the UK! Limassol town itself is a nice place. There are a few run down looking buildings and shops on the outskirts before entering the centre, however the centre of limassol has numerous high end shops and restaurants, something I hadn't expected.
The food at the hotel was good, with the lunch probably being the highlight, as it seemed to have more choice and variance on a daily basis than breakfast and dinner. That being said, there was a lot of choice for breakfast, with a typical offering of cereal, fruit and the constituents of a full English all on offer, so you could try something new everyday. The food was of a good quality, notably better than hotels I've eaten at before. As for the evening meal, the food was also of a good quality, with numerous types of dishes on offer every night, whether it be pasta, meat, seafood etc. My only reservation was, that on one evening, there was only one or two offerings that weren't seafood based, and as I am not the biggest lover of seafood this was slightly disappointing. The waiter service while dining was very good however, staff were attentive in bringing you whatever drinks you wanted, and tidied up promptly after other guests had finished eating, which meant there were always tables available, and you didn't have to look at someone else's half-eaten food whilst you were tucking in yourself!
The poolside area was clean, with numerous beds available both directly around the pool and in the garden area closer to the beach. The pool itself is nice, although I will say it was extremely cold, which made getting in more of an endurance than a pleasure at times! Once in you would soon acclimatise, however, when getting out again you would feel a slight chill, particularly if it was late in the day and the sun didn't have the same power. The poolside bar was very good, with excellent service, good choice of drinks and snacks, along with the all inclusive ice cream which was a big bonus!
The beach is adjoined to the hotel grounds, and is only around 20 or 30 meters from the hotel itself, meaning you never lacked amenities. The beach was clean, the sand was soft and not rocky in the area allocated to the hotel. The beds were also clean and comfortable, and all in a good state of repair which is reassuring! The sea water was also lovely and warm, clear and a nice place to swim. The pier was also nice to have a wander out onto in the evening to enjoy the last of the sunshine. Towels were available from the hotel, so we needn't have brought our own, all you had to do was present a card you are given upon check-in and you will be given as many towels as you need, and can replace them as often as you need too. Make sure you keep the card, though, as there's a 20 euro charge if it isn't returned upon checking out!
The one aspect of the holiday I was slightly disappointed about was the fact that the Blue Paradise restaurant wasn't open. We were told this was down to the time of year and the weather, however, during our stay it was 30 degrees and wall to wall sunshine everyday. This was particularly disappointing as it had been one of the reasons we had booked the holiday, and we hadn't been told anywhere within our booking that it wasn't going to be open during our stay. The Kiku Japanese restaurant was also only open one night during our stay, and this wasn't shown anywhere, and so we ended up missing out on the opportunity to dine at either of the hotel's flagship restaurants.
The entertainment at the hotel was very good, with a group of girls performing different routines every night. They also provided poolside activities for children and adults alike during the day, along with quizzes and other such things. In the evening they would put on shows such as musicals and dance routines to entertain in the Havana venue, and it was clear to see they were very passionate about putting on a good show! Cash prize bingo also preceded the show which was a nice touch, particularly as I managed to win a prize!
The Mokka lounge was where we found ourselves most of the time during the early evening, as the Havana venue didn't open until 8pm. The lounge had a very relaxed atmosphere, and you would almost find yourself dozing off at times! The waiters were all very attentive when it came to asking you whether you'd like more drinks, something which was particularly nice. The staff were all polite and courteous, something which I very much appreciated. The choice of drinks is extensive, with cocktails, beers and spirits all available, along with typical choices for children, all clearly set out in a well organised and easy to read menu. One thing to check, though, is that the drink you want is included in the all inclusive package, as not all of them on the menu are!

All in all, I had a lovely time whilst in Cyprus, and the hotel was simply a highlight of that. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking of visiting Cyprus and Limassol in particular. I would like to go again, though maybe next time during the summer months!

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view, preferably a high one so you can appreciate the view!

Dear Reviewer,

Greetings from Elias Beach hotel and many wishes for a Happy New Year 2014!

Thank you very much for taking the time to post such an excellent and great feedback through your recent review on Trip Advisor.

It was a pleasure for all of us primarily that you have chosen the Elias Beach hotel, for your latest holiday during October 2013, and we were very delighted to read that this was your first All Inclusive package holiday as well! This makes us feel very special and it is gratifying to receive such praise and see that we have managed to go beyond your expectations and led your stay be such an enjoyable and memorable one!

Special thanks for the emphasis given on your review, for particular arrangements done by our team members in order to assist you, such as the complimentary drinks organized upon your check-in, which happened to be later than the original All Inclusive package deadline.

Glad to read that you liked so much the peacefulness and pleasantness of our surroundings and terrace area of our lounge area, and also enjoyed the breathtaking views, service, facilities and cleanliness of our guestrooms, including of course the amazing and unique sunset that you could experience every single afternoon!

Very happy to see that you have also explored the area around the hotel, and have found the transportation available excellent and very easy towards the town of Limassol which is indeed around 10 km from the hotel.

Additionally, thank you for complementing our food variety and quality as well as our staff service and attentiveness during all the meals that you have experienced during your stay.

Thank you also for commenting and providing a full description of our poolside and beach area, with a detailed explanation of the towels and sunbeds procedure and policies. Very excited to read that you have also enjoyed our poolside bar with its excellent service and great variety of drinks and snacks, along with the All Inclusive ice cream which is indeed such a memorable taste and a big bonus!

With regards to the two aspects that slightly disappointed you during your stay; our Blue Paradise Beach and the Kiku Japanese restaurant, please allow us to explain that both of these outlets are indeed outdoor ones, and as described and analysed on our All Inclusive Information and Policies Booklet (handed to each guest upon check-in), both of them are normally open during the Summer period which mainly starts from April towards the end of October, and then according to weather conditions, they may open/close and earlier/later.

We do hope that with your next visit, you will be given the chance to dine in one/and both of these two outlets, which are indeed very lovely with breathtaking views and a very nice and tasteful cuisine.

Thank you also for your kind comments about our great hotel entertainment team and variety of their daily and evening programme. Congratulations as well for being one of the prize winners on our cash prize bingo game!!

Last but not least, many thanks for your kind words and great feedback given for our greatest hotel asset; our staff, and their attentiveness and helpfulness.

Once again, thank you very much for your kind support and recommendation to all the future travellers to Cyprus and especially in Limassol city.

Looking also forward to welcoming you back to the Elias Beach hotel in the near future – perhaps during the Summer 2014!

Best Regards,

Evgenia Papadopoulou

Staff superb, food for every diet - excellent, restaurant services very good. Hotel was conveniently situated with a bus stop to town just outside the hotel, Airport Limassol Express bus service stop now extended just 3 mins away from the hotel. From this hotel, one enjoys the sunset, beach, strolls along the beach, the gardens, pool and indoor pool and gym. Excellent hotel suitable for all ages.
The first two days we had a problem with the door key, but this was resolved by reception who moved us to another room.

Room Tip: Room views did not matter to us, as we out most of the time. The ambience outside, down and around...

We recently returned from two wonderful weeks on holiday at the Elias Beach Hotel where we also got married. We went out the first two weeks of October and from start to finish it was amazing, 4 of us went out for the first week and by the start of the second there was 24 of us all together. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, the food was beautiful and there was always so much choice on each of themed evening every night. However there are also two a la carte restaurantes which you can also book. The poolside and evening entertainment was great and the kanika stars team Sam, Rachel, Paris, Milena and Emily were great and really took great interest in getting to know everyone and getting people involved, they dont stop and their shows are excellent! The Havana venue was lovely for the evening entertainment and the barman Fotis was lovely and friendly and happy to make cocktails for us all evening, he makes a mean White Russian! For those of you getting married here in the future rest easy as our wedding planning and day was amazing and so stress free. Jenny and Vicki our wedding co-ordinators were amazing and helped us with everything making it so easy to enjoy the last few days before we got married and they put our mind at rest that everything would go great and smoothly on the day, which it certainly did, We had the fabulous Photo Papis take our photographs who are a local family run business and our photographer Vangelis was fantastic and made the whole experience so fun and our photographs especially our sunset photos were beautiful. We got married on 9th October on the beautiful sunset pier which at the time we got married was extremely windy so much so our two wonderful wedding co-ordinators got soaked by a rogue wave crashing into the pier, thankfully we remained dry ( they dried off quickly as it was 29 degress when we got married) We had our reception in the stunning Blu Paradise Restaurant and everything was laid up exactly how we wanted and we highly recommend the premium buffet which was outstanding. All in all a beautiful setting , a lovely family environment and a fantastic place to get married. Looking forward to returning!!

We visited the Elias Beach Hotel in half term this October - on arrival we were greeted and shown to our room - unfortunately we had not been given the room we requested (a high floor with a sea view) on going back to Reception I was told that they would certainly sort it in the morning. This they duly did - with sincere apologies - and we were given a lovely room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pools and the sea. We certainly could not fault the Customer Service with this. The hotel was lovely -the staff were so attentive and couldn't do enough for you (James at the outside pool bar was a complete hit with the kids and adults alike). The Kanika All Stars entertainment team were brilliant - (Paris, Sam, Rachel, Emily and 1 other (sorry I can't remember her name) they offered activities such as water polo & basketball, beach volley ball, darts, table tennis and quizzes - but were never pushy and if you didn't want to take part that was fine (my son met a group of other children and they spent most of their time either in the pool or with the entertainment girls). We didn't go to many of the shows - but the ones we did see were brilliant - the work these girls put in for entertaining the guests is incredible - and it shows. The food was very varied and always hot and enough of it - there was something for everybody - even the fussiest eater. The salads were fantastic and the deserts were yummy. There was always a variation of main dishes (if I had to fault anything - it would be that I would have liked to have seen some plainer meat and fish (not all in sauces) that could be enjoyed with salads, pasta etc. - but I couldn't fault the quality of the food at all. We saw 2 weddings whilst we were staying at this hotel - but they didn't disrupt the eating arrangements at all - one night the main restaurant was closed - but we just ate in the other one or outside, The AI package was really good (yes it was not international drinks included - but the local alternatives were fine - the cocktails were "lush" - we tried as many as possible!!! I drink red wine (and the local variety that was in the AI was lovely). The rooms were good - spacious and cleaned to a very high standard and the maids were lovely and always spoke to you. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor room 3 or above - request a sea view - as the view was lovely.
