With two pools è una jacuzzi is very comfortable...all clean! But also you can enjoy the beach, it's very very close! The staff is really very friendly ! Recommended for who want to relax in good company...or better alone ;-)

August 2016- Stayed or the weekend and was shocked to see this property. I've stayed in cleaner and better-maintained/updated hostels in Guatemala! I was first given a crappy room that looked like a murder was about to happen in there. The window mounted AC unit had giant cracks around it. You could see the outside through them and lizards, spiders,... More

This was the second trip to Elysium for my husband and I; this time around, we were there to celebrate our anniversary. Due to some traffic, we arrived after hours (the desk closes at 6), but connected to the resort staff using the call box at the gate, and were greeted on the property by the friendly Chun in less...

Nothing fancy at ALLLLLL here, you get a nice size room, that just a waste of space and it's so hard to describe how unappealing this room and hotel was. When you arrive you have to call someone to come check you in and pray it's not raining as it was when I did, then you have to hope that... More

For the price it is what it is. We made the mistake and asked for a poolside room not realizing people would be partying until 5am outside our doors. With no on property night staff you must deal with the the drunk guest yourself. Not what I wanted to do. However, there are plenty of rooms away from the party... More

Having received excellent service on a number of previous visits I booked expecting much the same. However, this turned out to be the most disappointing accommodation experience of my life. The reason: the property has been bought out and is now just part of several resorts in the area with the front desk based elsewhere. This resulted in having to... More

I stayed for a long season March- April. Great prices. But not a good management or a warm experience. There was a slicy front desk guy who made me uncomfortable many times. They don't take pleasure in providing service or making a great stay. It's all about $$$. I went back for 2 nights two weeks ago and revered it!... More

We had to wait outside for 10 minutes, with a vendor before we were granted access. Only to find a very prissy aloof dark skinned guy behind the desk. After seeing my id, he address by a completely different name. Phone rang, he didn't even excuse himself. Carried on conversation for a while. He gave us two sets of keys... More
