“A great holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Four of us stayed at Eleni for the last 2 weeks in May and had a lovely time. Our age group was between 28-58. We were a little worried when we arrived but that soon went. Our check in-out both were quick and smooth. The hotel has a new manager and was there if you needed him for anything, really nice man. The staff are by far the best I have seen in a long time travelling. The restaurant manager 'Stavros' was brilliant and made sure you had everything needed, as the restaurant staff were excellent too. Also the bar staff Chris, Theo, Ana and Antonia were fantastic, they really made our holiday special. All of them were smiling all day too. The drinks were great too my fav cocktail was called a 'san francisco', they also served calsburg and keo beer but we liked keo the best.
The food in the restaurant was ok, you could always find something too eat but they didn't have a huge selection. It would be good to have some different ham's and cheeses to go with the salad bar, I did miss real feta as there was only a soft cream cheese. You could also order from a snack menu which had sandwiches, burgers, salads and more when the restaurant was shut during the day.The pool was lovely, not too cold but great when you in and I always managed to find a sun bed but most were 'saved'. The pool bar was also great, Adam the barman was so sweet, he made great frappe's with ice cream & within the all-inc, they also had ice cream too which was great.
We had a ground floor apartment (1704) which had a kitchen and lounge which was handy but as we were all-inc we didn't use it much. They plug sockets were English which was great. The beds were a little hard but still ok to sleep in. Take a hair dryer with you as not one there. Our maid came 6 days per week and cleaned/made the beds. We had clean towels every other day. The only issue we had with our room was ants, we did report it and the maid did her best to remove them but after a few days they appeared again. I think on our last day someone sprayed the nest so hopefully they wont be back for a while. I didn't hear of this problem from anyone else, may of just been our room! If you did need anything reception were very helpful.
We did not get involved with the daily entertainment but the evening was ok, it probably helped with the alcohol we drank in the evening but they had bingo nightly and then a mini kids disco (it did annoy my dad a little after 2 wks) but it only lasted 20mins, after that there was something different each night. The Elton John act was brilliant. Also Mo the DJ/Entertainer was great with the fire/nails show and also a big thank you for playing our wedding song and good songs to dance too.
Just down from the pool bar there was a beauty place which was not included but the prices weren't too bad. I had a great back massage. They also did nails and facials but didn't not try them. Then if you follow the path to the right behind takes you down to the sea, there is not a proper beach but you can go in the water. I would just be careful especially when the sea is rough, I did not see a lifeguard. But there are signs telling you where to avoid. The are watersports which you can pay for. I went on a jet ski which was amazing but you could also go parasailing and more but it was only open when the sea was not too rough.
We had no children so we don't what the 'kids club' was like but i think they could improve there, it did look like the parents were looking after them than anything else, but there were things for them to do.
The hotel is about 200ish yards from the main road, to the left to the entrance up the road a little there is a great restaurant called saint georgios which served the best hamburgers ever, a great change to beef. There are also a gift ship and two mini supermarkets, the one around the corner was best and had lots of choice. If you wanted to go out I definitely recommend the bus, it costs 1 euro for a single trip each way, or you can pay 3 euros for a daily ticket and we found you can use it on other buses too, which worked out cheaper and can be used until 11pm. To get a bus from the hotel you can walk either left or right out of the hotel and take the small road up to the main one. On the main road to the left takes you down to coral by and right goes to Paphos harbour (the depot), here you can get buses to different places. There is also a market in Paphos town, we got a taxi from the hotel to the market which cost 10 euros, then after caught the bus to the harbour. Paphos town is lovely, there are plenty of shops, restaurants etc..and its also great at night time. We did go out for a few meals and the food was lovely each time. Paphos is a lovely town too with plenty to do for all ages.
Overall we had a really good holiday and one we will remember for a long time. Made friends with some nice people too. For a 3*+ hotel we thought it was really good value for money and the staff were keen to hear your thoughts. I am sure the hotel will get even better with their new manager too. We would go back to this hotel, although next time I would see if I could get a sea view room above the ground.
Thank you to everyone at Eleni Holiday Village for a great holiday Xx

Room Tip: Request a sea view room above the ground. Apartments have kitchens and have English plug sockets.

We went all inclusive in May 2013. Hotel was clean and tidy - our rooms were cleaned 8 times in a 9 day holiday - with clean towels everytime. Hotel staff were lovely especially Stavros (Restaurant) Theo and Chris (Bar staff), Zena and Muhammed (entertainment). Plenty of hotel games i.e. water polo etc but they didn't pester - if we didn't want to join in we didn't. Food was basic but very edible and the different fish was always lovely. Salad was bountiful, Snack menu was good and the kids enjoyed it. Ice cream always available.We went with a group of 9 ranging from age 10 - 61 and all had a great time. Thanks Eleni, we'll be back. Take your own hair dryer. They do provide beach towels at a deposit of 5 euro. It doesn't have a beach as such but is very easy walking distance to a rocky cove with a shingle area. Safe snorkeling and very clear water.

Room Tip: All rooms as bigger than expected when going all inclusive

We stayed at the Eleni for a week at the end of May. We arrived at 11pm so to late to get something to eat at the restaurant but they had fresh sandwiches and fruit to give us.
The staff are very friendly Stavros in the restaurant couldn't do enough for you always making sure everything was ok for you, we found the food excellent always a variety to choose from and if you wanted something different then they would do it for you.
George the new manager was always asking if everything was ok or any problems.
The pool area was excellent always plenty of sunbeds and life guard on duty kept very clean.
The rooms are a little tired and need some TLC but kept clean the floor could of been swept more often started to feel gritty on your feet.
My husband likes to use the gym but that was very poor half the equipment didn't work and theres no water down there which is needed.
Although we don't have children all the week we was there the kids were included in the pool games i.e water polo and volleyball, then a big party arrived a day before we was leaving and they were told that it was adults only they had been good enough to play there activities all week but because of this party they weren't good enough, I always thought that the animation team was supposed to be for all ages, the way that I heard the girl out of the animation team speak to one of the kids was terrible I don't know her name but theres only2 on the animation and shes the only female.
If you go into Paphos only one euro on the bus and 12 back in a taxi.
All in all a lovely holiday with great staff, will be going back.

Arrived at hotel just after 9pm on 22nd May and receptionist quickly registered our details so we could have something to eat before restuarant closed at 9.30pm. We appreciated some hot food after travelling all day and it was very good. Our room was very spacious and had a fantastic view of the pool and the sea, Bathroom was cleaned regularly but don't think the room floor was swept regularly and the balcony was never swept. Pool area was great plenty of sunbeds and you could also use sunbeds on grass area which overlooked the sea which was quieter. Food was very good and and there was a good variety, salad bar had plenty of different things to choose from and was lovely with their bread/rolls as starter. We would have liked to have had the chicken cooked different ways and not always drumsticks, legs or wings, the beef stews and pork dishes were lovely, wish I had the recipe for the sauce of one the beef dishes as it was delicious. Different theme nights which included Cypriot, Italian, Carvery etc and it was good to try different food. Also there was a snack menu if you didn't want to eat in restuarant during the day which was also good. Enterainment each night included kids disco, bingo then Magician, Fire Show, Singer, quiz etc which were good. Thank you for towels to have showers before we left it was much appreciated. All the staff were amazing, friendly, polite and could not do enough for you and we thank them all for helping to make our holiday fantastic. There are only a few restuarants and a pub nearby but for 1 euro you can get the bus into Paphos bus station and 12 euros back in taxi, it is worth a visit at night as it was nice to walk round the harbour. The weather was brilliant 35c when we left on 6th June but luckly it's been hot and sunny since we came back to Scotland. We had never been to Paphos before but we will be back, thanks again to all the staff. Room 1413.

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff from cleaners up to Manager as they work very hard and made us feel special. What you see in the brochure/Internet is what you get. I don't understand any of the complaints. Also anyone visiting should go to see Anthony and Michaela at the massage gazebo and treat themselves as an extra (not part of the hotel deals but well worth it). We will be returning

Our room was close to the pool at the Eleni. The kids loved it. The hotel atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Clean simple rooms.

Breakfast quality disappointing for us. Didn't try any other meals.

Nice pool.
Nice bar and seating area towards the end of the pool overlooking the sea. Enjoyed the all-inclusive drinks served by friendly obliging staff.
