... the big block party held on Sunday Night. Thousands of people gathered on the main street next to my hotel to dance the night away. There were different food trucks,and DJ's throughout the entire street. One could chose whatever music suited them best. It was fun to celebrate with the locals. Greek Easter is said to be bigger than Christmas around here. I truly believed it. Apart from Carnival, GLS took us on a tour of Kolossi Castle, ...
... I was going there. Even though I am close to Greece. I really do not want to travel by myself. I wish I had more Marymount people here. I wish my friends were here but they aren't. It's hard for me to make friends here. It's going to be an interesting four months. People are nice but then people have money to blow! I sit thinking to myself.. Melanie you are in Europe you financed yourself on this trip, you made it happen. Even if I only see Cyprus ...
Last night, the Givhan's friend, Sarah, hosted us for dinner at her village house. Cyprus is made up of old villages on the mountainside. The villages were built in historical times and still have cobblestone streets, while many of the village houses have been renovated (or not). The one last night was very charming and quaint, but spacious inside. A very fun and international group! This morning ...
... border, or "green line", and the Turkish side is unrecognized for all diplomatic purposes. Even after living here for 17 years, Christin could not cross the street to the Turkish side because she only had her driver's license, no passport. Today, we ventured into the old part of Limassol, the seaside town where Christin lives. We visited a middle age castle and walked the streets of the quaint town. See pictures below of ...

Which gives a sound reminder that even though Cypriots are hugely welcoming to visitors and are happy to show off and share their island with everyone, the pride and solidity of their national identity is not something that they take ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Elias Beach Hotel Limassol
Can't fault this hotel, it was one of the best holidays i've ever had. I was there with my 2 sons and eldly parents and they catered for everyone. the food was second to none, the staff were always willing to help and please, the hotel was spotless, the rooms were spotless. Can't wait to go back !!
J'avais du mal à croire que cet hôtel était un quatre étoiles ! Les repas étaient parmi les pires que j'aie jamais pris dans un hôtel, le choix et la qualité étaient médiocres. J'ai été particulièrement choqué quand, pendant le déjeuner, on a dit à ma famille et à moi-même que nous ne pouvions avoir un broc d'eau car nous n'étions pas en pension complète et que nous devions payer pour avoir une bouteille d'eau. C'était une instruction du directeur. L'hôtel était dans un très mauvais état, il était plus que délabré. C'était très glissant autour de la piscine et ce n'est pas très agréable quand il y a autant d'Islandais. Je n'ai pas été impressionné par le personnel ni par l'attitude de la direction que j'ai trouvés rébarbatifs. Inutile de dire que nous ne reviendrons jamais dans cet hôtel !
Comme la plupart des autres critiques, je pense également que cet hôtel est vétuste. Mais si la peinture a été refaite ainsi que la piscine et les jardins alentours, les chambres sont très démodées, les salles de bains ont l'air vieilles et la moquette à l'intérieur est sale et usée.
J'ai lu les critiques précédentes parlant du fait que l'hôtel a besoin d'une rénovation et, à mon avis, ces personnes font preuve de gentillesse dans leurs commentaires ! Nous avons pris une formule qui comprenait la soirée de Noël et l'hébergement et, franchement, je ne vous le recommande pas. L'hôtel est convenable mais il a besoin d'une sévère rénovation. L'hôtel était plein de vacanciers islandais, mais je crois que cette période correspondait aux vacances dans leur pays. Le personnel était chaleureux et assez serviable. Notre chambre était assez basique. Le minibar n'était pas approvisionné et ne l'aurez jamais été si nous n'en avions pas fait la demande à la réception. Par ailleurs, la télé satellite, qui était en supplément, ne marchait pas non plus. La cuisine était de bonne qualité mais le menu n'avait rien d'original. En revanche, les boissons étaient proposées à des prix raisonnables pour un hôtel. Comme l'un des ascenseurs de l'hôtel était hors service, c'était un cauchemar avant d'en prendre un à n'importe quelle heure du jour et de la nuit. Pour être honnête il y a d'autres hôtels plus abordables et mieux situés que celui-ci à Limassol !
I could not believe this hotel has a four star rating! The food was some of the worst I've ever had at a hotel, a poor selection and poor quality. I was particularly appalled at lunch when my family and I were told the at we could not have a jug of water as we were not 'all inclusive' and we had to pay for a bottle of water and that this was an instruction from the hotel manger. The state of the hotel is terrible, it's more than tired. The pool area is very slippy, not good when so many Saga people are there. I was not impressed with the staff and managment attiitude which I found to be surly. Needless to say we won't be going to this one again!
As with most other reviews here, I think the hotel is worn down. Even though it did have a "face-lift" by painting it and redoing the pool and surrounding gardens, the rooms are very dated, the bathrooms look and feel old, the carpets inside are dirty and worn.
Having read previous reviews stating that the hotel is in need of some TLC, I think the reviewers are being generous with their comments! We stayed there as part of the Christmas Party/Accommodation package and I would not recommend it to anyone to be honest. The hotel looks ok but is in need to some drastic renovation. The hotel was full of SAGA Holidaymakers, but suppose it was their time of year for holidays. The staff were friendly and fairly helpful. Our room was pretty basic. The Mini Bar was not stocked and never going to be stocked upon speaking to the Reception Staff and the satellite TV which was at an additional cost did not work either. The food was of a good standard but not much thought had gone into the menu. Drinks were of a reasonable price for a hotel. One of the lifts did not work and it was a nightmare getting a lift in the hotel at any time of the day/night. I can think of better priced hotels with a better location within Limassol than this hotel if Im being honest!
Booked this hotel direct through the Internet as I was offered the 'Presidential Suite' at an attractive rate. I was very disappointed upon arrival when I found that the Suite was actually two ajoining rooms! However after only a short conversation with the management, who I found very helpful our rate was reduced to what I felt as being more value for money.
The hotel is looking a little tired it needs a refurbishment especially the breakfast area. The staff lacked organisation especially in the restaurant the restaurant manager was rude and spent most of the time shouting at customers or staff. After requesting drinks / wine at the beginning of meals they never arrived until the end of the meal, and bottles of water would arrive warm - no ice was available. Choice of food was very limited. Disappointed no sunbeds available on the beach, after requesting sunbeds to be moved we were told 'it was not allowed' The staff in reception were super very friendly and gave good advise on local restaurants. The hotel was a little remote, car hire is deffinately recommended a local bus is available but ran on 'Greek time' should be every 15 mins but normally appeared after 40 mins. The hotel has a 4* rating but we felt the food quality and service was more 3* rating.
Overall, a good hotel. The room was nice but wouldn't rate it as 4*. Clean but somewhat shabby in places. My air con left a lot to be desired but did have it fixed. Room was large with two twin beds, seating area and small balcony that caught the afternoon sun perfectly. Small bathroom with bath and overhead shower, very functional but again slightly shabby. The 3 pools were fantastic. One kiddy pool, one very large pool about 1m deep(approx) then one smaller semicircle pool (2m deep) that overflows into the main pool. Lots of sunbeds both by the pool and the beach. Be warned, Sunday is open to the public and the pool area is packed to the limits. The food was self service buffet and was both plentiful and varied with diffferent theme nights for dinner. Drinks were reasonably priced. Staff were helpful and polite. There is also a small gym, though machines were a bit old and a small indoor pool. All my friends raved about the massages via the beauty shop. If you are looking for a comfy and clean place to stay, not in the middle of a busy town then this is the one!
