The city of Paphos, in Cyprus, was officially named a European Capital of Smart Tourism for 2023
Paphos competed with 29 candidate cities from 13 countries and the finalists were Aarhus (Denmark), Gijon (Spain), Zagreb (Croatia), Paphos, Porto (Portugal), San Sebastian (Spain) and Seville (Spain).
Seville was also selected as one of the European Capitals of Smart Tourism 2023.
The European Capital of Smart Tourism initiative recognizes outstanding achievements by European cities as tourism destinations in four categories: sustainability, accessibility, digitalization, as well as cultural heritage and creativity.
As the tourism sector continues to embrace technology, smart destinations are likely to become the norm.
This can materialise in thousands of ways, creating smoother, more memorable and personalised experiences for tourists.
Where do i start! Elysia Park is the most fantastic place to stay if you are considering to come to Cyprus Paphos.
They are welcoming, friendly and hospitable. The customer service is impeccable… I appreciate everything Elysia Park has done to make our stay that extra special.
Elysia Park will always be recommended if you ever wanted to stay somewhere that is also reasonably priced.
I will definitely come back again!
‘The Elysia Park is were all the wedding guests stayed and it was definitely worth every penny. The room was cosy with everything you needed, especially air conditioning. The pool and sunbathing area was a large area and the restaurant and bar provided great food and drink. The walk to Paphos town centre is around 25 mins or you can catch the 603 bus which runs hourly till around 8pm, taxis are around 10 euros. A great venue to stay’
We are very pleased with our stay at Elysia Park! The apartments are spacious, clean, and equipped with everything you need. There are two very nice pools. The food and the cocktails in the restaurant are good, and the staff is super polite. There is a mini market and pharmacy in the complex. The receptionists are helpful and kind. Our flight back home was late at the evening, and they not only let us stay at the pool after we’ve checked out but gave us a key to a room that we can use for an hour to take a shower and get ready to travel.
The best service ever, very clean and quiet, nice pools and very good security. Marios and Savvas in the reception are the nicest people, very patients and friendly and the restaurant in the resort is really good. Every 3 days they clean the apartment, and you get towels for the pool. There is parking space next to the apartment and the team helps with everything
To hire a car is recommended because it is 10 minutes’ drive from the beach .
Stayed with family and friends to celebrate our daughter’s wedding at Minthis Hills. Cannot fault the accommodation or helpfulness of everyone at Elysia Park. Would highly recommend. Denise and Barry Wardman.’
We liked the option to check in, in advance, so when we arrived the process was very quick and the man at the reception was very nice and welcoming! The food, pools, massage, everything was great!!! The hotel crew were the best of the best, very polite and helping of every need. They even agreed to extend our late check out request for a small additional fee, which really helped us. This hotel is more for larger groups- family/ friends, so they don’t get into separate rooms in a regular hotel. We were a group of 6 girls, and we rented a penthouse, and it was just what we needed. Overall stay at Elysia park was perfect!
Disliked · Nothing! Best hotel we could ever have at Cyprus for a group of friends!
the apartment was very clean. the communal areas were also kept exceptionally tidy. the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble
1st time visit, Outstanding service would highly recommend, we rented a town house was above our expectations.
Very convenient park with big pools and a playground for kids. The apartments are huge and have separated bedrooms for kids and the parents and a big living room. The kitchen is well equipped with everything. There is a restaurant inside the hotel with delicious food and an option for buffet breakfast – open all day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the cleanness of all the parks are great. You can stay at this place for months!
You feel the care about guests in every detail: the territory, pools, well-furnished apartments. We had everything we needed. There are plenty of parking lots so you can leave the car near your block. Good Wi-Fi, huge terrace ❤️ The property is located in a quite area, no noise will bother you. And within a short walk you’ll find cafés and supermarkets. Getting to the beach will take you ~20-30 mins of walk, or 5 mins by car. The receptionists were extremely helpful with everything. Really enjoyed our stay!
Cyprus is an amazing country and Elysia Park is excellent accommodation. We had a 3-bedroom apartment which was well equipped and very comfortable. The apartment was cleaned every 3 days and towels replaced. There are 2 main pools and plenty of sun loungers. There is a very good on-site restaurant with a varied menu for all tastes. All staff were approachable and friendly. It is definitely a place to return to for a relaxing holiday.
It was our first-time visiting Cyprus and we were so impressed. The standard of the accommodation was amazing. Very clean and excellent, modern decor and facilities. The pools, gym, restaurant, and local supermarket were all a stone throws distance away and the beach a 20-minute walk away. Staff were friendly and helpful when we wanted to book a tour, information about local attractions and booking our airport taxi. We travelled without our teenagers, but had they come along, they would’ve loved it too. We’d definitely recommend Elysia Park whether you are looking for a quiet, restful break or want to enjoy the night life down by the harbour.
Fantastic Apartment. Spent 3 weeks at Elysia Park and was upgraded on arrival. Found staff to very helpful and the facility was very clean and modern.
The cleaning staff did a great job, thoroughly cleaning the apartment top to bottom every 3 days
The apartment was clean and spacious with quality bedding and comfortable beds.
The reception staff were very helpful; I would also recommend using their transport service as polite and reasonably priced. Only 15 min walk into Pafos.
We enjoyed a Spa massage too.
My son and partner had a deep tissue massage, and I had a de-stress with express facial. I would highly recommend this treat, Petra the massage therapist was exceptional. The Spa pool was great as outdoor pools whilst inviting were not heated.
A great 6-night stay. Highly recommended for sure.
Thanks to all the staff who, despite end of season, remained friendly and hospitable.
My 4_nights stay with my family, was so comfortable and really lovely.
I enjoyed staying at the apartment, lovely pool and the perfect cleanliness.
Special thanks to Mrs Natalie for her care, kindness and hospitality.
Hope to see you again soon ❤️❤️❤️
Our experience with Elysia park was excellent!
The receptionists are Polite and kind!
Apartments are big and very convenient for short and long stay!
Central location, 2 min from center (Municipality, Makariou etc)
We will definitely visit them again.
