This was our 3rd visit to the Elamaris , our last being 6 yrs ago, the hotel is still pretty much the same as it was then , i don\'t think they\'ve decorated since!!!!
The hotel is looking very tired, the woodwork was rotting , the masonary was cracked on the balconies and our corridor smelled like cat p***.
The hotel staff were very friendly,the waiters, waitresses and bar staff were very helpful and friendly but the actual cooks/chefs were very ignorant and i made a complaint about one of them when we went down for dinner at 8:45pm and were told that the chicken had finished , bearing in mind that the restaraunt was open until 9:30 i found this unnaceptable , when i remonstrated with the chef he just shrugged and walked off.Following the complaint the waiter ensured that we ...
were given chicken and apologised profusly.Read More
The overall standard of food served was poor, we actually ate out on 5 occaisions which cost a packet, our previous visits to the Hotel have been very enjoyable but this one has really put us off going back , which is a shame because the Hotel could be so much better.
The majority of staff there are not Cypriot now , which may account for the declining standard overall.
With regards to the entertainment , i wasn\'t impressed, Baz tried his hardest and ensured we had a good time, and he was a really nice bloke as well, but his partner (no name mentioned) was the most self-indulgant person i\'ve ever seen, all she was interested in was herself,there were frequent instructions to children to sit down, which is odd considering it is a superfamily hotel..and to cap it all she actually told all the kids to get out of the pool(at the hottest part of the day, and believe me it was hot)on a couple of occasions so that the adults could play games in and around the pool.
This review no doubt sounds like we had a really bad time , but we didn\'t we had a great time , unfortunatly most of it was spent outside of the hotel.
We love Cyprus and will return next year if i have my way, but not with Thomson and not to the Elamaris (which is a shame, because we have such fond memories of that hotel from previous years)
