Just back from a perfect holiday reunion with a couple of ‘old’ friends. We chose the Coralli Spa complex due to its well appointed location and its facilities, eg 2 fantastic pools with good quality sun loungers and a café for essentials. It also has a small gym and a spa which my friend recommended after using both.
One of Coralli’s major plus points is its position being in a quiet location by a nice sea cove but only a short 5 minute direct walk to the vibrant strip of Protaras with its many varied bars, restaurants, shops and attractions. You can also choose another short walk via the costal headland with lovely turquoise sea views with Fig Tree Bay and its beach gradually appearing and you can see immediately why it is regarded as one of the best bays on the island. There are also many bars and places to eat to just relax while looking out to the sea watching the various water activities going on.
Having read the previous reviews we made a good choice using Carol and her apartment. She is a friendly lady to deal with - very professional, prompt and courteous. She genuinely wants you to have the best holiday. We didn’t meet Gary on this occasion but his colleague John was great and gave us a thorough insight into the varied places in Protaras to visit, many of which we ended up visiting during our 9 day stay!
The apartment was perfect with everything we needed, microwave/dishwasher/washing machine/air con etc and lots of nice extra touches. Free Wi-Fi in the apartment is a welcome useful bonus, also the safe. All furnishings and fittings are high quality with the Kingsize bed being particularly comfortable. It was great to just pull back the big patio doors and relax on the balcony looking over to the sea and enjoy the vibe. The patio doors in the bedroom also fully open with a lovely swaying palm tree just outside. The flat is south facing so it is blessed with the sun for most of the day.
It is definitely worth going on one of the many boat trips as the scenery around the coastline is stunning. It also has many places to hire cars, jeeps and bikes etc. Myself and a friend hired mountain bikes and the nearby Country Park of Cape Greco is easily reachable on cycle lanes which are separate from the road. Ayia Napa is also easily reachable but the bus service is very frequent and inexpensive. There are also many coach trips to try.
We all had a superb holiday (it was 29 degrees C most days in October!) and would highly recommend both the apartment and the resort. We look forward to returning again
I visited Coralli (B103) recently (returning on October 16th 2017).
Firstly, the apartment itself is superb, it is really well furnished and kitted out with everything you need and more, in a great location and with a sea view from the balcony.
The swimming pools are excellent and really well kept and you can access all the other many facilities within the Coralli complex.
The location is in a quiet place, but only a short scenic walk from the beautiful Fig Tree Bay, which has a great choice of bars, restaurants and other attractions all the way along the seafront.
The resort caters for all tastes.
The food choice is extensive from fairly simple to more complex dishes, all very reasonably priced with generous helpings (the fish dishes, in particular, were extremely special).
In terms of entertainment, again, there is something for everyone with so much choice of what to do with all the bars etc. on the main strip. There are also lots of water sports and golf courses and longer picturesque walks to go on.
Our favourite day was when we went on a four hour boat trip along the coastline in a glass bottomed boat, with a diving show and a really knowledgeable and entertaining commentary from the Captain of the boat. This only cost 10 euros and even included a free drink!!
The apartment is kept immaculately by Carol and her team and the service we had for the transfers to and from the airport from John was brilliant – a perfect holiday and I would recommend both the apartment and Protarus to everyone.
We have stayed at carol's twice this year 12 night in may and 7 night in October .Carol customer service is the best you could wish for booking is a easy and super fast experience and nothing is ever to much trouble . Carol appartment is on the 2nd floor off block B the apartment is like home for home with everything you need for a week or two in the sun and this year carol has also had wifi added in the appartment which is a nice bonus . There are 2 swimming pool at coralli spa one at block B and one at block A we find the block A one has a nicer view and gets the sun for more off the day but with beach in both directions in 5 to 10 min walk you spoilt for sun bathing choose :) . Protoras it self has lots off bar and nice places to eat and only 10 walk to the strip .
If you are booking with carol I would also recommend you ask her about booking your transfer to and from the airport with Gary the property manger she uses . We had john one off his staff this year for are transfer and the same as carol there service is excellent after using there service you would never want to go back to coach transfer again
We would like to say a big thankyou to Carol and Gary for the extra they did for use on are October trip as we flew by monarch and are flights got cancelled twice for are trip home to U.K. Carol and Gary was both great help and staying a extra 36 hour at the apartment and rebooking the transfer back to airport were both sorted out very quick so we could enjoy are unexpected extra 36 hour in the sun :)
A great start from start to end. Gary who caretake's the property, collected us from the airport showed us around Fig Tree Bay he. The apartment was very clean, up to date with a few little treats on arrival. Lovely location, Fig Tree Bay was beautiful. 24 hour superstore just up the road, close to the strip of bars/taverners, and a short 10 minute walk to the beach as well. We hired a Buggie for a couple days, perfect for a little adventure out of town. Highly recommended, Carol has made the apartment home from home, with attention to detail which gives it a special touch, and Gary is there anytime should you need anything nothing was to much trouble . Will be coming back! Thank you so much Carol........ perfect .
We have recently returned from a 2 week stay in this comfortable apartment. Carol managed our booking promptly and efficiently throughout. We much appreciated the arranged taxi service to and from the airport, and Gary's lively and informative commentary on our way to the apartment, which was clean and well maintained. The welcome pack was most welcome!
The quiet location of Coralli Spa Resort suited us ideally. We enjoyed the proximity to the headland walks, and access to the small bay for swimming,and the fact that we could easily get to the main street of Protaras and Fig Tree Bay - both just a short 10 minute walk away.
Our only disappointment was that the apartment overlooked the car park and the communal bin area. The 6 large bins were only emptied twice a week during our stay, and were left open and overflowing with bags, some of which ended up on the floor at the mercy of the local cats - all very unsightly and smelly - and I received a very offhand reply when I reported it to reception!
However we enjoyed the south facing aspect - getting sun from early morning til late afternoon - so really appreciated the free air conditioning..
The apartments are located just on the edge of the resort of Proteras - so away from the noise of the main strip, but only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants, bars etc.
The apartment complex is modern, clean and well maintained. There are 2 blocks each having a pool, both can be used. The complex cafe is a bit over-priced but is handy next to the pool.
The apartment again, is modern, clean, well-maintained and well equipped (towels, beach towels, hairdryer etc).
It's also only a couple of minutes walk to the sea - steps down to the sea -perfect for a dip, or snorkelling. Another couple of minutes walk will get you to sandy beaches.
Carol, the owner was superb - great communication via email prior to the holiday, very accommodating when due to flight changes, we arrived a day earlier! and allowing us to stay in the apartment on our last day until leaving for our flight at 6pm. On arrival the kitchen was stocked with the essentials -tea, coffee, milk, water, wine!
We arranged our flight transfers through Carol... Gary was waiting for us on arrival, he has good knowledge of the area, stopped off at the supermarket en route so we could pick up a few groceries. He also explained practical stuff like air-conditioning, key safe etc before he left. It was handy to know we could call him if any problems arose (we had none)
This was our second stay at the apartments (different apartment number last year) it's everything you need whilst staying in Protaras. It's about a 10 minute walk from the main strip and equally the beach. Although there is access to the sea in front of the apartments and a small little beach. The apartment was clean and tidy with all utilities that you need for self catering. Would definitely recommend this apartment. It was easy to book through Carol, and she always responds very quickly to any enquiries you may have, in addition Carol will arrange for you to be collected from the airport and returned, which is handy as you don't get all the other drop offs that comes with a coach/mini bus! Gary will collect you, he is very friendly and welcoming and has a lot of knowledge of Cyprus so you can get some tips on where to go (if required)
