Help... Where to go with 8 year old daughter

Need some urgent advice. Know nothing about where to stay in Cyprus but would like to book a last minute weeks holiday neek week. Husband will be with us for first two days then just myself and daughter. Need to be reasonably close to Larnaca for flights.

Looking for quiet relaxing holiday, something with white mediterranean feel, good food(happy to wander to restaurant nearby), daughter not really into kids clubs but makes friends easily around the pool.

Have got very confused looking at options in a hurry. Any advice would be welcomed!

If you want to stay near Larnaca, the newly renovated Sandy Beach in Dhekelia (15 mins from airport) might be a good option for you. If you don´t mind heading eastern, you can choose Ayia Napa or Protaras (~35 to 40 minutes from the airport) for much better beaches. Plenty of choice for hotels there. If you let us know your budget maybe we can give some more options.

Have a look at hotels/apartments in Protaras/Pernera - its only 35/40 minutes by taxi from the airport - cost 55 euros each way though. Beautiful beaches and plenty to do for your daughter.

Thanks so much.

Had decided after listening to your advice that Capo Bay would be a good mid range option.... of course is now fully booked.

Now two next options:

1. Grecian Park Hotel

Would like a bit of luxury but I see that it is a bit remote. I will not be driving and for variety may wish to eat out of hotel. Also I note a few reviews that it is a bit pricey in the restaurants?

2 Golden Coast Hotel

It seems that this hotel is close to the village so easy to eat out if desired. Also seems to be right on bus stop... again easy for outings. Hotel seems a little basic???.... not expecting 5 star but don't want budget either.

Comments/Alternatives?????

Grecian Park, whilst lovely, is far too isolated for you if you don't intend to drive.

Golden Coast is ideally situated, straight onto the beach and only minutes from the centre of Pernera but make sure you get a sea view.

Agree with Kath. You can also have a look at Surnise and Capo Bay hotels, very good choices as well.
