We only had 1 week at the Platomare but could have stayed longer. We definitely have no difficulties recommending it to anyone who wants a reasonably quiet relaxing holiday. The owners and staff could not have been more helpful. There was a friendly atmosphere that we found very welcoming. The pool and grounds staff were particular in their maintenance, everything was wiped down and cleaned and the loungers, chairs and parasols arranged every evening & all spotlessly maintained. The apartment itself was adequate and had all the necessary bits for self-catering. The bathroom was a bit small. It had a shower attachment over the bath not a seperate shower, however this was only a minor inconvenience. There was air-con but we didnt use it. Our apartment was on the ground floor looking out to the pool area and quite pleasant. The rooms could probably use a redec to freshen up the place but like the pool and gardens its all spotlessly clean. Building work has just started in the next plot to the Platomare (the owner informed us the plot has lay dormant all winter and building starts now just as the holiday season kicks off!) However we were not disturbed by the builders or too much noise in the evening. I'm not looking for entertainment in the early hours I want a quiet night's sleep! If there was any entertainment at the Platomare it didnt keep me awake. The next hotel along was a bit noisy at night. We had been to Protaras 15 years ago and were surprised at how much its sprawled. Unfortunately its all a bit tacky, Blackpool with sunshine! Thankfully, the Platomare is just far enough away to be removed from the strip. For eating out try 'Blue Spice', its always a good sign when you find locals at a restaurant. Regarding the tour operator, Olympic holidays. Generally, no complaints except at the airport both going out and coming home dreaded flight delays! 2-3 hours at Cyprus due to a dispute with the fuel company over unpaid fuel! Not sure if thats believable or accurate but thats what the rep passed on to us after 2 hours in the departure lounge. Even in times of financial austerity this could have been resolved better.
