SunConnect Protaras Beach - Golden Star Hotel
Ranked #32 of 65 Hotels in Protaras
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2012

With children and grandchildren, we should have a week of warmth and bathing, and selected Golden Star in Protaras as our base. This is a appartmenthotell with its own restauarant, bar, 2 swimming pools, a supermarket and beach bar. It is 50 meters from a sandy beach with sun beds for public rental. It is also close to Protaras restaurant strip with both Cypriot and international restaurants and pubs. More typical English pubs. Opportunities for walks on the coastal path and up to the mountain inside the city. The month of May was a nice travel time. There are still plenty of room on the beach and eating places and a release to go into a queue. Temperature is also comfortable slightly above and slightly below 25 degrees C. The water is around 20 degrees C. Probably get some rain showers sometimes but it's just refreshing.

hi this was my second time back to cyprus and although the first time was amazing and unbeatable,it was beaten and i cant believe it but my second time there was just as good and i didnt think this was possible. the golden star is in a perfect location, it is nearly sitting on the beach and is less than 1 minuite walk, the protaras strip is less than 2 minuite walk where you will find bars resturantes and shops. the apartment was very clean with maid service every other day and they did a good job when they did clean. the staff were helpfull and very friendly sometimes got chatting and couldnt get away lol. the rooms do need a little updating as they are a little old but for the money just perfect location and a very comfortable stay.would recomend to all agesand families. please ask me if you have got any questions and i will try to answer them. the room is 40 euro extra to keep it on and the room is yours till 6 that night which is abit steep but it means you can have a few hours topping up your tan bbefore you leave.all in all i dont think you would be unhappy when booking this so give it a try.

Liked — the big rooms and friendly staff
Disliked — could of done with a little bit of modernisation

We stayed in June. Lovely room, friendly staff and great view.Just off the main road, so great for access to bars, etc, but not as noisy as the main strip hotels.

Only problem we have is we cannot find an operator to book for next year.

If anyone has any information regarding booking, it would be gratly appreciated.

Just returned from a two week family holiday (28/9 – 12/10) at the Golden Star in Protaras.

We were given a one bedroom apartment on the top floor with fantastic sea views, the room was modern and very clean with bedding and towels changed most days. The apartment was very well equipped for self catering purposes with hob, toaster, kettle and microwave in the kitchen area and a hair dryer and a safe in the bedroom.

The staff were all friendly especially the manager Memnia for whom nothing was too much trouble, for example giving us map of the local area and information about places to visit.

The two swimming pools were cleaned and water tested daily and likewise the surrounding areas were all kept spotless with plenty of sun beds for everyone.

The golden star is in a great location next to the beach which has a coastal path running alongside it with a selection of Beach bars/cafes on it. The main strip which is two minutes walk away from the hotel has plenty of decent bars and restaurants to choose from. Our favorite restaurants in the area were Yianna Marie belonging to the golden star, Oscars and Anatolia.

Will return again one day when it becomes available for us Brits.

Room Tip: upper floor rooms for best views

Just got back from a week in these apartments. After my initial worries and emailing the hotel to request a high floor, we arrived to be given room 415 on the top floor! Room was lovely, Very modern, clean and with a fully equipped kitchen. View over the neighbouring Tsokkos Beach hotel, which gave us free entertainment from the very funny reps and some good tunes too! Maid came in 5 out of 7 days and we got clean towels and bedding. The staff were lovely and the manager greeted me by name one day and asked if everything was ok. Pools were great, one larger one and a smaller one which was a bit quieter with jacuzzi between 12 and 2. The apartments are located right next to the beach and a 2 min walk to the main strip, so ideally located for a good sleep. Eating out was very reasonable. Meals cost between 8.50 euros to 17.50 euros for 2 or 3 courses. We just looked around, you will be spoilt for choice. Drinks were also good, just look at the offers in the bars. Paid from 2.00 euros to 3.50 euros for spirits. Boat trips leave from the jetty near the apartments, we did the coca cola trip which was 10.00 euros each and lasted about 2 and a half hours, went to Famugusta and Cape Greco for a swim. We were lucky enough to see 2 weddings which was lovely and the cpatain played the wedding march to the couples from the boat. All in all a fab holiday, my hubby has never been to Cyprus before and said he never wants to go back to Spain now, he is converted to the lovely way of life and the friendly people. Fab resort, very safe and lots of things to do if you want it. Even gara rufa fish pedicures if you want one lol...Thank you to all the staff at the Golden Star - they were all fab. Shame its not being offered by Thomas Cook next year as we wanted to go back. Only negative was TC losing my case on my return to Newcastle. It is is Manchester allegedly..we will see if it arrives tomorrow as promised by courier and if it still has all its contents!.

Just returned from a week self catering at the golden star hotel, Very impressed with the clean room, all the kitchen utilities you need. Free air con in the bedroom. Great location beach is a minutes walk, supermarket is on the door step. Towels and bed sheets changed daily. Bathroom could have been better as it was more like a wet room, however it would not stop me from staying there again.
