Eleni Holiday Village
Ranked #16 of 87 Specialty Lodging in Paphos
Reviewed June 24, 2013

First time in Cyprus for Family Wedding. The accomodation was very good and very clean,and all the staff were lovely.
Unfortunately I didnt enjoy the food in the all inclusive. Kids didnt enjoy much either. Im not a fussy eater, I usually always find something to eat. Ended up eating chips and cheese when the snack bar was open during the day.
The evening snack bar consisted of sandwiches. We went in the beginning of May so theres a chance it was just early in the season ??.
The apartments were quite secluded. There was a couple of other hotels nearby which werent opened up yet. Apart from that there was a handful of shops and restraunts. It was good if you wanted a very quiet holiday. I like to have things nearby, a bit of variety and to keep kids happy. There was a very good bus service though. We went into the harbour which was great. I would have much preferred to have stayed nearer there.
All said and done, it may well be a case of personal choice and it just wasnt for us !
Dont really know if I would go back to Cyprus. Just wish we didnt stay there for our first experience.
On a good note, the wedding at the town hall was lovely and got some great photos at the old castle at the harbour and a great meal at one of the restraunts upstairs looking over the sea.

stayed here from 11 june for ten nights, six adults in our party.Arrived 10:30pm check in was quick smooth and courteous with nice friendly English speaking staff. Resturant was closed but where supplied with sandwich orange snack to eat.Given three apartment rooms,one looking over large outdoor swimming pool the other two looking out to sea (fantastic views). Apartments are three levels ground floors have two or three steps up to doors,first floor and second floor rooms have a flight of step ( 10/15 steps per flight )so if pushchairs or toddlers better of on ground floor.Rooms are spacious with tiny kitchen area: sink, microwave, two cooker rings,kettle and refrigerator.Twin single beds are comfortable with a sofa and under panel that turn into two more further single beds.Air conditioning was brilliant in our room getting down to 16 degrees but friends commented that theirs was only getting to 19 degrees with a fan of an asthmatic gnat, causing them to leave patio doors open at night trying to cool down and being bitten quite often.All three rooms were cleaned and changed seven times out of our ten night stay by friendly polite and efficient cleaning crew. Restaurant was of average size with seating inside or out in a covered area which was nice if there was a breeze.We were greeted by Stavros the restaurant manager a warm friendly Cypriot bloke with a cockney accent ( brilliant ) he made sure he greeted and spoke to everybody but ran his restaurant with an iron rod but saying that all restaurant staff with no exceptions were always smiling, pleasant and courteous.As soon as your plate was finished it was cleared within a blink of an eye for you to return to the serve yourself buffet,food was of three star quality in my personal opinion,cereals cold meat and cheeses,eggs sausage bacon toast ( as usual toasters are slow and ineffective ).There are plenty of loungers but parasols are prime real estate, towels are put out early so be warned.The outdoor bar opens 10 ish and is staffed by Adam, Theo and Anna who even tho European speak better english than some brits and are brilliant can't be praised enough .Also at this bar there are snacks served by english rose Emily with a smile that will light up any guest.There are four pools,a 3m square toddler pool with slide and fountain, large swimming pool with slow gradient floor from 00 to 2m deep and fountain at shallow end,volley ball pool on a higher terrace all with salted water and an indoor 1m deep chlorinated pool next to the basic equipped gym i.e.wieghts, running machine, cycle machine, lifting machine.Theres a small hotel shop for basic toiletries etc and a store within 5 minutes walk and a bus stop no more than 10 minutes walk to the main road,left direction to go to coral bay well worth a visit to a large sandy beach and quite a few good daytime eateries.Go right at main road on the bus to go to Pathos and Pathos harbor.Pathos harbor is a must with it's shops, it's restaurant,bars and stalls along the harbor front and all for a bus fare of 1:50 euro per person. Recommended restaurants are a Greek tavern called Denokritos,with authentic Greek dancing and american diner Fat mamas with the staff putting on a show and phenomenal food.

We totally loved our time at the Eleni from beginning to end. I don't have a bad word to say about anything. (Thanks to the management/chef/Stavros & all his waiting staff - to Chris/Theo/
Antonia/Anna/Adam & not forgetting the wonderful Mohammed & Zena) It was our 1st time there but will NOT be our last - loved it.
On arrival reception staff were polite & very helpful same as can be said about our rep who gave us great information for what we required for our time there.
Food we could not fault - always something new to try & plenty to choice from @ breakfast, lunch & dinner if you wanted there was also the snacks, ice cream etc & plenty cocktails to choice from for the ladies.
Our room was spacious, beds & towels changed & always kept clean (same as can be said about the rest of the hotel ).
The big pool I found to be great as it gradually slopped down & you could walk into what depth you felt comfortable with, separate baby pool & also top pool for games.
Entertainment - bingo, kids disco then varied -also the Eleni dance before bed - great fun:-)
Met wonderful new friends there (Sarah/Graeme/Bob/Alison).
Great value for money.

Having been to Cyprus many times after reading some negative reviews we would probably not have chosen the Eleni. We were going this time for a wedding, and a lot of the family had decided on the Eleni so we thought we would join them. Our ages were from 3 to 68 and the Eleni was perfect for us all. The staff were the nicest and most helpful you could wish for. The food in the restaurant was good and if there wasn't anything you fancied they were happy to get you something from the snack menu. Our apartments were very large and kept very clean. We were all inclusive and this included cocktails, Ice creams all day and also Glasses in the bar which were not plastic. We like a beach and other reports had said there wasn't one, well there was a few minutes walk away, the water was lovely and clear it had every water sport you could want. You only have to walk 5mins to get a bus and for 3euros you could travel about all day, we made 5 journeys for 3 euros one day, the bus service is excellent so you do NOT have to hire a car. We love Cyprus, and once again had a lovely holiday, we were very pleased with the Eleni and would recommend it. I would also like to mention once again our favourite taxi driver Rocky iwantataxi.com He is now like a family friend, he doesn't ask for payment up front, he is always there even when we have been delayed, and like the rest of the Cypriot people nothing is to much trouble.

What can we say but excellent from front of desk to all the maintenance staff who tend the property and keep the complex clean and tidy. Are top marks go to the restaurant manager and his staff who make you very welcomed and service is spot on. Although we are a couple who only had B&B because we love to see the island it being are second trip to Cyprus we have always found the people to be very welcoming and pleasant. We give the hotel 10/10. Keep up the great work hope one day to return

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for a sea view you won't regret it. Lovely sun sets
