My friend and I stayed at the Silver Sands in May 2011 for a week's half board as our friend was getting married at a nearby 5* hotel. When booking, we did consider some of the 5* and 4* hotels, but settled on this 3* and we were so glad that we did! The location is perfect as it's at the quieter end of the strip and right on the beach and the bus stop just a 2 minute walk away. Just a further 5 minute walk up the road and you are in the middle of the strip which is a lot more noisy with it's bars, restaurants and mopeds! Our room was small but clean and had air con and a balcony. The reception was 24 hour and staff were friendly and helpful. The eating area inside and outside was well kept and overlooked the beach/ sea. Breakfast was plentiful with a buffet choice of cereals, cooked and continental. However, the evening buffet was not varied enough, so on day 4 we were so bored of the food, we swapped our evening meal for lunch so we could eat out for dinner instead. Lunch was much better with a menu choice of burgers, omelettes, salads and toasties. The sunbeds were extremely comfortable with matresses however as the pool area was small, there were not enough for all guests. Because of the high buildings, half of the pool ended up in shade by 2pm. There were a few activities each day (water vollyball, pilates etc) but staff were not very enthusiastic so not many people took part!
Overall, there could be a few improvements but for the cost and location, I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Protaras. My friend and I did go into several of the other 4&5* hotels on the strip to visit the other wedding guests and all were complaining of the noise at night. From what we saw, we both agreed we much preferred the Silver Sands and were happy with our choice.
