We stayed at the Tsokkos Gardens Apartments in August last year. The apartments were perfectly adequate, clean and tidy, albeit a little bit dated. Our 2 kids slept on the couch that had a pull out smaller bed underneath. The apartment was spacious enough for a family of four and we had no problems. The staff at the hotel and apartments were all excellent. Meals at the holet are good and we always found something to eat at the evening meal. A bit samey, but you can always go and eat at any of the local bars, that have good quality and very reasonably priced meals.
Hotel entertainment is a bit cheesy, but the staff work their socks off morning noon and night to keep people up and doing something (if you don't want get involved, you won't be hassled).
I would definitely recommend a visit to Protaras but there are other hotels of a similar standard in the Paralimni area.
The seafront walkways to Protaras or Paralimni are pleasant and local transport links are also very good to the beaches locally. Knossos beach,vAyia Napa & Nissi Beach, Cape Greko, Ayia Treya Boat Trip and Red Bus Tour to Famagusta were the highlights of our trip and we've got good memories of our holiday.
The Spectrum Bar near the hotel lined with football shirts was our favourite haunt. Angelo, George and Piggy the English Bulldog were a big hit with the kids. They show films at night for the kids and sport on 4-5 large screen TVs for the dads!
Protaras is a family friendly place to stay and visit. As you'd expect, the Cypriot people are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
