Definitely for you !! We have taken our two teenagers for the last three years, something for everybody, you'll love it !! We actually stay in Pernera but walk into Protaras quite a few nights, there's bars with tribute acts, karaoke bars, places where you can just sit & people watch, bars playing sporting events & bars that just play great music ! The lads always find something that keeps them happy. We've been into Ayia Napa on the bus for a change some nights, at 1 euro that can't be beaten !!!

With regard to things to do during the day, there's water sports, paragliding, fishing trips, boat trips , the red bus tours (village tour & Famagusta tour)

There's also loads of fabulous restaurants serving every type of food you can imagine, cypriot food (of course), chinese, mexican, japanese, english, all sorts to suit all tastes !!

We're getting married there next year, just love the place !!

Ignore the last post never go AI in Protaras as there are far to many excellent hotel and the food in AI is crap compared to what is served in local restuarants.

Also when you go AI there is little or no money going into the local economy and the only's one's making money are the rip-off tour operators as they force the local hotels owners into AI otherwise they threaten to drop them from their brochures or do what they have done to a few hotels and fill them with Russians who spend little or no money

Hi

I have stayed at the Odessa in 2011, as Paul above says do not go AI. There are some fab places to eat and you can eat as cheap or as expensive as you like. The Odessa, rooms were fine, breakfast and lunch room needed refurb. Food was just ok, but a few days in you get sick of it, to me its like having school dinners, you pick and put lots of different things on your plate just for something to eat. The drink (alcoholic ones) disgusting! My hubby ordered a baileys words cannot describe what it looked and tasted like! This was our 2nd AI holiday we stayed at the Anastasia in Pernera the year before and will not do it again!

We stayed in a villa in Pernera last year and ate out all the time, to be honest it cost us less than going all inc and we had some nice tasty food and drinks. We have booked to go again this year counting the days!

Protaras is a great resort, plenty to do, lovely beaches, restaurant, bars etc.

Never in price or costing.

You can fly every day of the week to Cyprus to Larnaca via Easy Jet and Monarch and Thomson at least twice a week. BA & Cyprus airways. The list goes on and on......
