I was visiting Cyprus with my family and we were staying with the grandparents and my wife and I decided to escape for a couple of days. I have personally chosen the Elysium based on what I saw on the tripadvisor and I am glad I did.
The first impression we got when we arrived was impressive. We drove to Elysium and I parked the car and we started walking towards the entrance with two hand luggage. To my surprised before we moved far a porter came to pick them up and directed us towards the reception. The check in was very quick and within few minutes we were in our room. The room had a site sear view which was more than good enough for us and it was nicely decorated and spotless although not the biggest or the most luxurious I have been in this current year . Also a nice platter of fruits was waiting for us.
During our stay we tried few of the restaurants and in call cases the service was excellent. The breakfast at Lemonia was amazing (I always find the breakfast offering in hotels in Cyprus excellent but this was at a different league) and despite been packed the service was outstanding. We also tried the Epicurean terrace restaurant and the service again was excellent. As my wife did not want any wine and I did not want to have a bottle by my self the waiter offered me a number to options not on the menu so as to enjoy it more with my dinner. The presentation of the food was excellent and I love the starters but the main although very good I had a bit more expectations but again I cannot fault it. For both of us the highlight of the restaurants was the Mediterraneo where we had lunch. My calamari was excellent but the Octopus that my wife had was one of the best we have ever tasted
We also been to the Astria bar in all evenings and I had one of the best Mojito I ever had. (If you like it then order the Napoleon Mojito next time you are at the hotel). The bar is nice and relaxing and is the perfect close of the day before you go to bed
In addition to that during the day we spent the time around the swimming pool and a bit by the beach. Both my wife and I were impressed with how clear the whole gardens were and how well maintain everything is. Also we have notice that the staff were doing everything possible to accommodate the needs of all the quests and somehow beds and umbrellas were appearing from nowhere for everybody. That what I call a great 5* hotel service. One nice touch was the cold towel we got at around midday... Little things make the whole stay more enjoyable
Last but not least the location is great for Paphos. If you do not mind walking Kato Paphos and the harbor is around 30 minutes walk through the beach path that takes you to the castle. Its a bit of a long walk but the sea breeze is nice and keeps you going
Both my wife and I commented after we left that the Elysium is in par with some of the best hotels around the globe we have visited over the years and we are definitely coming back with the first opportunity
