Arrived at the hotel and met by a big smiling face of the receptionist, the staff overall were very friendly and helpfull. The rooms were modern with large,comfy beds, the rooms were clean and the towels were changed twice a day. The food was plentyfull and something for everyone. Anyone wanting a sun bed by the pool needs to get up early to put a towel on it but we preferred to go to pool for the water slides which had plenty of beds. The evening entertainment was not great but what we expected, the hotel was situated just 5 minutes away from the local town which had plenty of life, shops,bars and restaurants. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend this hotel to anyoneMore

No way 5star
Just returned on Sunday after a week in this hotel , I would not go back . There are too many people and not enough space in the dinning room , poolside or places to sit in the bar . We had a family room with own pool that was a long walk from the main hotel . The room was clean but not 5 star . The food was okay but never hot , we were unhappy with the hole experience , we booked with First Choice but were about the only English people in the hotel .More

We returned yesterday from 7 nights at the Eleon, booked through First Choice, who class it as 4 Star Premier. We arrived late on Tuesday 23rd September, around 9.30pm. The only snacks available were tuna rolls... We cannot complain about our room, number 350. It was spacious, clean, and we had a beautiful sea view which we paid extra for when booking. The walls were quite thin though. Balcony was great, I often sat out after having my evening shower watching the boats go by. We had a mini fridge which was empty - not 5* treatment! We 'borrowed' bottles of water from the restaurant at breakfast to keep in our room, and even filled up empty ones with beer from the self serve tap so we could enjoy a drink whilst getting ready for dinner. Restaurant was poor. Most of the food was lukewarm. Salads were salty and oily. Grilled fish was the saviour, but most of the veg is cooked in butter. The best night of food was the Thai/Chinese night. However, the restaurant that evening was SO busy that they even put tables in the reception area. There is a notice in reception which says there is a dress code for dinner - there isn't. One lunch time a very hairy guy came in wearing swimming trunks and a vest and no one asked him to cover up! Gross. As another reviewer said, the drinks weren't great. The wine was sour. The soft drinks taste syrupy. The beer was okay, but after a couple of days we'd had enough. The poured cocktails were awful - but well loved by the Germans and Polish! We settled on vodka and lemonades. The bars stop serving at 11pm. We often got 2 drinks each and went back to our room to watch a film on the iPad. The bar staff didn't like this, and one even made a snide comment. My other half would get up early to reserve a sun bed. I understand that this has a roll on effect, however we came on holiday to enjoy the sun and to swim, and so a walk down to the pool at 7am was the price we had to pay for one of the sun beds with a mattress. We cannot complain about the pool, apart from the fact that the area we chose to sit in (by bubble pool) didn't have any waitress service. Another reviewer said there was loud music by the pool - this isn't a fair comment. They played about 20 minutes of music in the morning, 10.30am, when doing aqua zumba. That was all. The public toilets - reception, pool, Olivia Bar - were often dirty or out of use. The beach is small and pebbly, no sandy beaches. The slides were great, no complaints there! Wifi was a bit temperamental for the first few days, but seemed ok in the end. Pool tables are stowed away downstairs from Reception, and in a disgusting condition. The ceiling above has a hole where the room above has leaked... Entertainment was awful - BUT there is absolutely nothing else to do in the evenings, so we often went to the Olivia Bar to watch it because it gave us a laugh if nothing else. I have no doubts that the Animation Team do what they can with the resources given, but compared to other resorts I've stayed in, it was so amateur and boring. We got a taxi up to Tsiliivi one day just to get some nice hot food... 7 euros each way, the hotel reception will call the taxi and then you can pick one up to come back from the rank outside Popeyes. Play the Adventure Mini Golf - 5 euros each and good fun. We took the Thomson Turtle Island Cruise on Sunday, and had a wonderful day! We saw a gorgeous turtle, and enjoyed our cruise around the south of the Island. The boat had a snack bar on board, so we were able to enjoy hot food, snacks and have a proper drink!! I could probably go on forever making my complaints, but instead I will do that directly to First Choice!More

Not a 5*
So, I write this review as I sit on my balcony with a couple of days left! Before arriving, I had emailed the hotel direct, requesting a high floor, I had already paid to upgrade to a sea view and wanted to take advantage of this! On arrival I was handed my keys, on asking whether this was a high floor I was advised 'no', but, on explaining id requested a high floor I was quickly handed another set of keys! Great I thought! On arriving at our room I couldn't have been more disappointed, a partial sea view, we were right next to the main building and the majority of the view was a brick wall! Not what I'd paid for! I went back to reception who I must say were very accommodating, they offered us another sea view room and allowed us to look at a suite with private pool (at an extra cost), we preferred the sea view! The room was clean, and the view, at last was great! The overall look of the hotel is very clean and very grand, but that's as far as it goes! When it comes to food, I'd say I'm not very fussy but the food here, although different choices was barely edible, in fact I had a croissant for breakfast, skipped lunch and took a cab ride to Tsivilli for dinner (every night) as the food was that poor, also with most soft drinks, the main flavour was syrup! So paying all inclusive was a complete waste of money! I agree with the sunbed situation, absolutely ridiculous, I thought it wouldn't effect us due to the time of year we had travelled but it is packed, all sunbeds around the pool gone by 7:30, the same faces stealing them all, one Man even reserving 9 beds with 3 towels!!! People would bring sunbeds from other areas and pack them around the man pool like sardines. But to be honest, like others I preferred the beds by the water slides, these were less busy and quieter then those around the main pool which had thumping music like something from a 18-30's holiday! Some Like this, I don't, especially when I come for a relaxing holiday at a supposedly 5*. Staff were friendly, apart from the guy at the pool bar who informed my husband he was only allowed one scoop of ice cream, when my husband pointed out someone else had 2 scoops he stated this was only allowed if he had 2 different flavours??? Really, what was that about, I mean, we paid all inclusive, was barely eating or drinking at the hotel and was only allowed one scoop of ice cream!!! Although in the brochures this hotel looks fantastic, it needs a lot of work and even with that I don't think it would ever reach 5*, or maybe I'm just to picky???More
