I was there recently for a couple of days. The hotel is nice and the personel is pleasant and helpful. Nice enjoyable cuisine as well. The main issue was internet connection which was bad. The free wifi (as stated online) gives you extremely limited access although its mentioned at reception. But then its too late. No skype or whatsapp to...

Hotel is nice enough. Room was clean although safe didn't work. Bed nice and comfy. The selection for the restaurant was quite limited - the steak I had was very gristly but was cooked perfectly. Staff very friendly.

I stayed at the Hotel Elais for 5 weeks from the 15-08-16 to 16-09-16, and stayed in room 276 for the duration of my stay. The room was a ‘standard’ room overlooking the garden area, and I was very pleased with the quality of the room, and pleasantly surprised with the condition of the hotel throughout, as I wasn’t expecting...

Dear Sir, Although we would have liked to thank you for your review, but we can’t quite agree with it. Indeed, your company policy is to pay for your food and a soft drink, but no alcohol is allowed. This is not to say that our staff would benefit from this policy in anyway. If we do have the pleasure...

The hotel is well positioned for business, it has a nice pool area and a gym that you can workout in - treadmill anyway but bring your own music to train with. Breakfast is functional but filling. Rooms are spacious, clean and cool.
