“Not keeping up with rest of resort!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

I have been going to Cyprus for 16 years and stayed several times in the Melini. The staff are wonderful and in general the apartments are clean but dated. The furniture is the same now as it was when I first visited as is the decor and much of the paintwork. Linen/towels are clean and fresh smelling but again old and tatty. The rooms are only cleaned 5 days out of every 7 so disappointing to come back to a messy room, unmade bed at the end of the day.
The worst point which has put me off staying again is the noise. Some people complained about the noise from the hotels bar downstairs (The Rockefeller) but the worst was a bar opposite called the "Brewery" which had the most awful and extremely load "modern/club" type music blaring out until 3 or 4am some nights. I have a little boy now 4 who adores Cyprus but this music is unacceptable. When we complained we were told to phone the police!!! Most other bars etc on the strip will stop the live music around 12pm and turn any other music right down. One of the reasons we have always stayed here is the central location and lovely clean pool. Fab icecream too!

Room Tip: First floor sea view is very nice (but noisy)

Stayed at this hotel 18/6/14 for a week. Sucha lovely family run business.all of the staff were so friendly,helpful and hard working. Bar right at pool, island affair restaurant next door which is fantastic. Great location, supermarket right across the road. Will definitely be heading back as have stayed in plenty of hotels but never have i felt as welcome as this one.

we stayed at Melini Appartments 14th Sept for 14 nights, we like it so much its the only place we want to stay in Protaras, the staff here treat you as friends,they always find time for a chat so much so that we are on friends list on Facebook, the rooms are very spacious and clean,
We are getting married next year and because we feel so at home here a lot of our friends and family are staying at Melini too, the pool is a good size and cleaned regularly, Chillz bar serves best ice creams ever and the barman Alex cant do enough for you, the Island Affair restaurant serves fantastic food at very resonable prices,
we stayed here again June 2014 and as always we are welcomed as friends, we got married on this visit and as the Melini is where i proposed we wanted to stay here for the two weeks of our wedding, we had photos taken with the staff at Melini and even shared our wedding cake with them and a couple of bottles of champagne, everyone you speak to around the pool is a regular visitor and come back year after year and that is because of the way the staff treat you

Having stayed at these apartments for the past 7years I agree that they are a bit tired now but the owners know this and are going to upgrade but it all takes time and money, Thomas Cook aren't helping with there demands on the owners who cant do enough to make sure you are having a great holiday, the Island Affair Restaurant serves a wide range of dishes expertly prepared by Hubert and his team, I would recommend these apartments to anyone, yes its noisy during high season with The Brewery bashing out loud music till early hours but a set of ear plugs works wonders.

Room Tip: Rooms 304,305,306 or 404 and 405 are bang in the middle of the apartments.

stayed here for 8 nights, the hotel is dated but clean, the staff are very friendly especially the family run restaurant, the 3 sisters and staff are lovely nothing was to much trouble they made us feel really welcome. I stayed here with a group of friends all couples and everybody agreed that the staff at Melini apartments were friendly and attentive. The hotel itself was basic but for the short period of time we spent in are room it was fine, dont be mislead by some reviews we had a see view in room number 202, the holiday was perfect, protaras is a beautiful place and the people are lovely cant wait to go back.Make sure you go to Fig Tree Bay the sand is white and blue seas a stunning place.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Arrived early afternoon on the hotel's first day of opening for a two-night stay. The receptionist was relatively polite, gave us our key and tried to direct us to our room (although she wasn't sure whether we had to turn left or right from the elevator). The room was relatively clean (can't say the same about the sheet as they had a funny smell) but the furniture was very outdated. The bathroom is tiny with poor lighting and no toilettries (just a bar of soap). There was no TV remote control so we had to ask for one, which the receptionist brought immediately. The funny thing was that during both nights we were watching TV and then the channels would change on their own. We would turn off the TV but a few second later it would turn on again. We had to get out of bed to turn it off from the socket. I imagine that our 'neighbours' were changing their TV channels and somehow we interacted! Our biggest problem though was the loud music from the pub next to the hotel. We had such a poor night's sleep I had to cancel our 5-day booking for June.

Room Tip: Anything not facing the main street and the adjacent pub!
