Bye bye Greek Islands...back to Athens

A travel blog entry by nicolapollard on Aug 06, 2014

... could get the metro back to hostel before it closed. It was now after midnight and I still hadn't decided on my plans for the next day. I was supposed to be going to lake ohrid in Macedonia to meet up with Beth, Chelsea and Tara but the transport in that part of Europe is pretty **** so it was looking really ************g and not even that cheap. From Ohrid I would've needed to get to Split by the 8th so was looking like ...

Drios

We again made breakfast before heading to the beach. We decided to skip straight to the rock beach which was a good decision, the overhanging trees provided shade and the sound of the waves moving the stones was so nice. We mostly read, and ate the peaches we had bought at the market. It was the size of both of my fists and easily the best peach I have ever had, we were so absolutely content. ...

Paradise beach round 2

A travel blog entry by nicolapollard on Aug 04, 2014

... a very different atmosphere at this time of the day, no music yet and even kids! No idea why anyone would bring kids to paradise beach. After a couple of hours on the beach we got the most delicious frozen yoghurt but it was so expensive because you pour it yourself and add your own toppings then they weigh it to see how much it's going to cost. I reckon they will be making a killing off it! After fro yo we had ...

Paradise beach, Mykonos!

A travel blog entry by nicolapollard on Aug 04, 2014

... out of a music video! We checked into our rooms which are little huts in the complex then got the bus into town for dinner and to watch the sunset. Once again we had a cheap and cheerful gyros dinner then walked around the town a bit before sunset. Mykonos was built in the time when there was a big threat of pirate invasion so they made the streets really narrow and winding so the pirates would get lost. Because of this it is very easy ...

Party boat in Paros x

A travel blog entry by nicolapollard on Aug 02, 2014

... it was nice and quiet. That night we walked down to the Main Street for dinner by the beach. It was really busy but lots of locals and families so much more authentic Greek. We had dinner as a group then walked around the cute cobbled shopping streets. It was really relaxing! The next day was our boat day out. We met in reception at 9 and headed to the water. Our boat was like a pirate ship with a downstairs ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Elysium Hotel Mykonos Town

    Loves the Elysium!

    from

    Stayed four nights end of May. The hotel was spotless, the terrace beautiful and the bar was enjoyable. The staff of the hotel could not be more accommodating. The staff were very helpful in suggesting shops and restaurants. Mentioned to the concierge we would be interested in an excursion to Delos. Before we knew it he had the whole day trip arranged for us. Cannot say enough about the Elysium--will definitely return!

    Don't Book this Hotel

    from

    We booked this hotel in November, 2004. We were traveling on a cruise for July 2005 and had added this hotel for 2 days at the completion of the crusie. On June 24th (just a few short weeks before our departure) they e-mailed me and said they were cancelling my reservation, without explanation, and would not even offer to assist in booking another hotel. My phone calls and email to the owner were answered rudely and with no assistance whatsoever. They even had the nerve to tell me to stop by and have a drink since a cruise would be in town. Warning - this could happen to you. Book another hotel that really cares about its guests and its reputation.

    Excellent:I love the Elysium

    from

    Love the services, and the ocean veiws. The music and setting at the pool is a great way to spend an afternoon. The sunset parties are fantastic! The drink prices however are a bit overly priced, Which is a bit of a draw back. Rent a scotter to make the treak up and down the hill to town.

    False Advertising

    from

    FALSE advertising and the worst costumer service. I booked a room for 4 people at great rate, (at least that's what I thought). Upon arrival we were told they only had room for 2 and it would be double the rate. According to them, the room I booked online doesn't exist and the rate is non-existing. I was upset at this point but willing to wait for the manager and possibly negotiate between what my online itinerary detailed and what was available at the hotel. After thinking about our budget and not knowing if they would be able to accommodate all 4 of us, we realized we should find another hotel. When we expressed this idea to the front desk manager, we were told off in Greek in very explicit vulgar words, which brought some of us to tears. Threats of jail and fines were thrown at us because we insisted on leaving the hotel immediately. In a very unprofessional way, a show was put on in the lobby for all the guest to see. We left and had to hike down the hill just to find a cab and stayed at a fabulous hotel by the port at a much lower rate.

    A Gay Paradise

    from

    The Elysium was a wonderful place to relax and meet cute gay men from all over the world. If you're looking for a place where you can lounge by a pool surrounded by beautiful (some naked) people while hot cabana boys serve you cocktails, then this is the place for you. The food served at the pool-side bar is very good and the sunsets are an unforgettable almost glamorous experience. The beds could have been more comfortable, but rooms were well appointed. The people at the front desk were very knowledgeable about the best places to see and eat on the island.

    Wonderful, Marvellous!!!

    from

    We were looking for a nice gay friendly hotel and this was it! Although the trek up the hill was a bit difficult after a night out on the town, the hotel was a delight. The room was great, the cleaning lady we had was very efficient and always knew when we were sleeping in until 3 or 4pm so we were never bothered. The bar staff were incredible and friendly...and made our stay very enjoyable. The owner of the bar (different from the owner of the hotel) was an amazing guy. Very, very helpful and warm. He took the time to point out the "must see's" and the traps. Thank you!

    The sunsets from this hotel are incredible!!! Folks from the nearby hotels (straight and gay) congregate nightly to wittness the spectacle!

    We met lots of people who told us we were lucky to be staying in such a nice hotel with such an incredible view. Sure its on a hill, but when the temperatures soar into the 40's trust me, its nice to be up so high because there's always a nice breeze!

    The food at the bar restaurant is wonderful and the prices are very reasonable. However, the breakfast (if you are ever up so early) is terrible. Its the same old fare, morning aftere morning and its a shame that with the price of the hotel that it cannot provide better fare for breakfast.

    All in all I will definitely be returning to this hotel as it's friendly atmosphere is fantastic!!!! Good job Vascilli and Stravos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Overpriced

    from

    Much better hotels on Island! When you are walking up the very steep hill to this hotel you forget you are on vacation. Hotel is overpriced and the only time it is remotely fun is the sunset happy hour. Air conditioning is available but good luck keeping your room cool. Agree with previous reviewer; it is not what is advertised. Eddie and Tim

    Disappointing

    from

    Not what was advertised. We got the two room "suite" -- two rooms (one without windows) and a small entryway. (When we requested a room change, we were told that the hotel was full.) Our view (and that of several other rooms) was obscured by the concrete frame of a building under construction. The hike up the hill from town is the worst aspect of the experience. Get a scooter or plan on spending most of your time at the hotel. The food and pool are nice, and the staff was generally pleasant, but overall my friends and I were disappointed with the experience.

    Incredible

    from

    Went to Mykonos for a birthday celebration. What a great experience. The hotel staff were wonderful in making our stay one of the best I've have before. Once you get over the "hill" you experience the best view in town. The sunsets out on the veranda are incredible. The bar staff were on top of our taste in drinks. It is the place to stay when in Mykonos.

    Paradise

    from

    The overall experience was amazing. Vasili, the owner of the hotel made us feel like royalty-- as if we were guests in his palace. The service was excellent, the food at the pool bar was amazing. The "happy hour" sunset parties was the hang out for all of the "beautiful people" on the island. Very gay environment-- colorful, flamboyant queens floating around, hot muscle boys everywhere-- overall amazing!
