“Great Location - clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Was better than we had expected. Stayed here for first 2 weeks in June 2013. On arrival late evening we were shown to room 25 or 28, anyway it was ground floor and not what we had asked for. Had asked for top floor side sea view. On arrival into room I went to balcony to check out side sea view. View was obstructed by side of bakery. Went to reception to say did not have sea view as booked, could not see the sea and was told by manager that is because it’s dark!!!! Ignoring his sarcasm I said that even in daylight I felt would not be able to see the sea and I had requested a high floor room from Thomas Cook.
He agreed to change us to room 228 which wasn't top floor but did have a side sea view and a very nice view of sea and surrounding area.
Was very quiet, couldn't hear any noise from outside. However, usual problem with the dreaded 'chair and table scapers' in apartments above - one of my pet hates! Do wish some people would be more considerate. Why always try for the top floor but we can't all be up there!
We had one bed roomed apartment, was a good size very light and clean and airy. The beds were large singles and firm but very comfortable mattresses. Good size wardrobe with hangers and also extra full length wardrobe in living room.
Only aircon in the bedroom which we had set at 16 degrees the lowest setting as it wasn't very effective and was noisy. It was very windy whilst we were there so with the balcony doors open
all day until we went out it did keep living room cooler. However as you cannot leave aircon on
whilst you are out you do have to come back to a very warm room at night which takes long time to cool down.
The bathroom was the let down - very small claustrophobic and smelt of bad drains most of the time. Was nice to have a bath with shower over head. Shower had good pressure and always had hot water. But you wouldn't stay in bathroom very long due to drain smell.
Rooms cleaned very well and clean sheets and towels every other day.
Balcony faced the pool area and had sun in early morning, but then it moved over to back of hotel during the day. This was good as meant the room did not heat up during the day.
Cost of aircon was 85 Euros for 2 weeks. You pay 105 Euros on arrival and get 20 Euros back when you leave.
Pool - was Ok we only spent last day there. It is open to public so do get non residents using it, Security might be an issue, especially if you have small children.
Lots of holiday reps spend their free time during the day. But as most people go to beach getting sunbeds around the pool didn't appear to be a problem. Seemed to be clean and well maintained, there are toilets with changing room and full shower underneath the bakery which you can use- good for people who check out of room but have late flights.
Fig Tree Bay
Most amazing beach have visited in Europe - very beautiful clear sea and soft sand. When its calm is like swimming in a huge pool. But does get very busy - especially on Sundays when all the locals visit and come from far away. Cost of sunbeds are 2.50 each bed and 2.50 for umbrella. So total for 2 people with umbrella is 7.50 Euros per day. You find yourself a bed and help yourself to umbrella from outside hut. The beach man comes round lunchtime and afternoon to collect the money. There is a good quiet area where families with small children went because of natural rock pools and safe area for splashing in sea without being in the actual sea. It’s just below Astreas apartments by the Water sports hut.
Beach Restaurant -
The best is the Blue Peter Restaurant which is first one overlooking Fig Tree Bay and closest to Astreas Beach hotel. Very nice family owned restaurant, excellent service, genuine friendly staff - great food, home cooked specials each day. Highly recommend. Much better than others close by.
Protaras town and Restaurants bars
We found it a little one dimensional - as really only has one main street which has many Karaoke type bars. There were a couple of better bars selling quality cocktails but not many.
Vento’s on the seafront promenade was very nice, and The Brewery in main high street was also good- young barman Andreas very good cocktail maker and great to talk to about Cyprus and local culture. Didn't eat there but food looked very good.
Restaurants - some were good others just Ok. Will do some reviews on these.
Pernera - great walk along the promenade, on hot summer evening with a warm breeze must be heavenly, very romantic but it did take 40 minutes, not 20 minutes as some have said, and we are not slow walkers. With a few more decent bars and restaurants along the way this could really make it very special.
Even though temp was 33 degrees daytime and 23 evening, Most nights we were there we had very strong winds actually quite chilly which they said was unusual. Would recommend taking cardigan or shawl just in case. Was a shame as was too windy to sit outside in restaurants some evenings.
Mozzies
No sign of any mozzies, I used Avon Skin so Soft dry oil spray which always works for me. But there must be some around, don't think they like the wind so this might have kept them away.
Overall good holiday - Being so close to the amazing beach was by far the best part and reason why we chose protaras and hotel and local people very friendly, but wouldn't return due to lack of decent bars and range restaurants. Good for families with children and those who like Karaoke type bars and tribute acts.
If you need any more detailed info on anything please just ask.

Room Tip: Go for higher floor with side sea view. They have 2 lifts to all floors.

Cheap and cheerful. Had a week here at the end of July 2013. The hotel had just opened and the attached Bakery/Restaurant had not opened for the season yet, but the pool and pool bar had. Room was on ground floor and looked out over a car park but was cool as it never really was in the sun all day. A plus point when it is very hot. The apartment consisted of twin beds room and a large sitting room and kitchen. Kitchen well equipped and everything had been painted in the close season. Getting a bit long in the tooth but everywhere kept very clean and everything worked!
Only down side was that other than the pool there wasn't much by way of a play-park or similar to entertain children.
Beach over the other side of the car park, sic, and it was blue flagged.

Room Tip: Ground floor or top floor.

Just returned from a week stay in Astreas Beach, and would gladly return there.
The rooms are VERY BASIC but clean, there were a few issues that in no way spoilt our stay and did not bother us but for some people would spoil their holiday so I will mention it to you.
1. The beds were HARD but we still managed to sleep well in them.
2. There were a few broken/cracked tiles in the bathroom.
3. There is no bar available on a night time at the accommodation so no chance of a final night cap before retiring to your room. (We solved this problem by buying a bottle of JD a bottle of Tia Maria and a bottle of coke at the supermarket and sat on the balcony watching the electric storms over the sea)
4. No airer or line to hang wet swim wear or towels to dry

The staff at the hotel were polite and helpful. The rooms were CLEAN and this is the important thing to me as i am not going on holiday to spend time in a hotel room.
It was well equipt to cater for your self and there are lots of supermarkets in the area, even a Lidle.
The beach is 50mtrs accross a carpark and the main street is just around the corner with its bars and restaurants, there are lots of beach front bars and eating places but as we were there on the last week of the season most of these were closed on a night time as the resort was so quiet.
Would highly recommend eating at The Corner and Divas, both flambé restaurants (turn left out of hotel grounds walk up to main road, turn left and walk towards junction, both these places are at this junction one on either side of road)
The pool area was very clean although we only spent one afternoon there as the beach is so close and the sea is warm and clear and gentle it was a shame not to be there

LoveBoat was our regular night time venue, the entertainment was free and enjoyable,
WE WILL RETURN TO PROTARAS AND THE ASTREAS BEACH. Perfect location for every thing.
There is a bakery attached to the Appartments that is also a cafe, the food was nice and its staff friendly.
There is a pool bar that was not open the week we were there due to it being end of season

Room Tip: Sea view balconies have a great view of the beach but did not get the sun (in October, may be differ...

We have just returned from a week stay here. Overall, in terms of cleanliness and comfort we were very satisfied. The studio apartment was clean and comfortable and had the added bonus of a kettle and toaster as well as a full cooker (not that we used it!). Yes, the safe and aircon were extra - and necessary as it was still very warm in the evenings - even in October. (the weather was great all week). Maid service daily and regular change of towels and bedding which was also good. The bakery and mini-market were also handy for early morning croissants and donuts. Pool area was well maintained and staff were generally friendly. There were a few 'bug- bears however:
-1) this was the last few weeks of the season and the complex was far from full. We asked for a sea view room and were told we had one. When we got to our room we had no sea view - instead we looked over waste ground and septic tanks at the rear of the building. We raised this and after the receptionist supposedly spoke to the manager later, were advised there was no sea-view rooms available. I worked out that in the whole building there are only 3 apartments with no sea-view (131,231 and 331 (ours). It's a shame they could not be bothered to give us a better room - might have encouraged us to come back.
-2). We asked if we could borrow some tall glasses from the bar for the apartment (as the tumblers provided are very small). The receptionist took details of our room number and assured us that the chambermaid would bring them up the following morning as 'everything is locked up'. ...they never materialised!
-3) Pool/cafe staff would regularly remind guests caught drinking bottled water around the pool that they could only drink water purchased from the bar or cafe. I can understand stopping guests from bringing their own food and drink as they want to sell their own stuff but a 25cl bottle of water??? Its a bit petty!

Overall, not bad place - location is very good - close to beach, bars and restaurants and the lovely promenade yet far enough away from any noisy nightlife. I would still recommend it but if you book try and secure a sea-view room. Good luck finding an email address to do this in advance - nothing came up on Google - but they do have one!

Room Tip: Good restaurants were Da Sonia (all the Greeks ate there), Andaman(?) taverna and Romeos Taverna - t...

We paid 72€ for 1 night, sleeping 3, in early October. Appt was clean and spacious. Only 50m from the beach. Nice little hotel pool and 'wet bar' with cocktail of the day only 2.50€. Fig Tree Bay is a lovely spot for snorkeling and water sports - try the Fly Fish for 20€.

Reviewed 20 September 2012

I would rate these apartments as 2 star. They are somewhat dated but could not fault the service provided. Small problem with the light above the dressing table which was reported and repaired in no time. Daily maid service with clean towels every 2 days and clean bedding every 3 days as already stated but provided by such a pleasant smiling young lady. The location is brilliant being such a short walk from the strip and the beach. The air con was essential and I can't understand people not expecting having to pay for it in apartments. We go away every year although this was our 1st visit to Cyprus and we have always paid extra for safe and air con unless we stayed in hotels. If I had to say anything negative then for me it is the lack of a bar in the evening at the apartments. We didn't use the pool at all as we were so near the sea for swimming and sun bathing so I can't comment on it's suitability but the pool bar closes at 6.00pm and the bakery ( which also serves cold drinks ) closes at 7.30 pm so if you like to have an evening drink very close to your room you have to keep the fridge stocked and sit on your balcony. I feel that all in all we have had a very good holiday however so I am happy to give the Astreas a good rating.
For food I can't praise Nicolas tavern highly enough. His portions would feed a horse and his meals are delicious. Tried 1 or 2 of the others but always came back and we were there for 2 weeks so had time to sample many of his dishes and didn't find one that I had any complaint with. La Pas cocktail bar was very good as well for lighter meals and fabulous cocktails.
The bakery attached to the apartments was well stocked with fresh, delicious bread and cakes so we have thoroughly enjoyed making pigs of ourselves.

Room Tip: higher floor if you want any kind of view
