“A good place, friendly people.”
Reviewed 9 August 2010

We have just returned from Protaras and the Andreotis Apartments.

The Andreotis:

The apartments and the complex itself were great, the staff in the bar (Tasos and Danny) were fantastic, always there for you and would always ask if you were doing well. The room was OK, even with air conditioning, on the hottest days at night it can get extremely humid but that's what would expect from such a hot place. The pool and surrounding area were well kept, looked after and we had many a good day around there when we didn't go down to the beach. There is a good little supermarket near reception that comes in useful and isn't too expensive.

It's about 200 meters to the main strip of Protaras and about 500 meters to the Fig Tree Bay.

The only gripes we could have, were that there we a large number of ants in our apartment, and other apartments from people we had spoken to. However considering we weren't in the room for much other than sleeping it wasn't a huge problem.

The Resort:

The resort, was well looked after, there are a number of shops (all of them sell the same things), and a good number of restuarants/bars to choose from, all within 20 minutes walk. We mainly had our meals in the Hotel, which is unusual for us as we'd usually go out more often, but we did try Cheers and Only Fools and Horses, both of which served a good meal and had good service, no complaints about either, but the best service came from the Hotel. Tasos and Danny were always on hand to get you served with good quality food.

Activites:

We went on one boat trip (The Aphrodite), which cost about £10 each, it was a decent enough trip, but the term "Glass Bottom Boat" was a bit of a stretch as you could just about see the sea through a 1 foot peice of glass. Still is was a good few hours at sea and you can just about see Famagusta in the distance.

We also went to the Aquarium just on the outskirts of Protaras, again it was £10 each, and was OK, I won't lie and say it was brilliant, but I enjoyed looking at the different species, I do think they need to look after some of the animals a bit better though. A taxi will cost you 9 or 10 euros.

We also used a local Mini Golf a few times which was great fun, about 3 euros each and maintained to a high standard. Just a 5 minute walk away.

The Weather:

Suprisingly, the cloudiest holiday we've ever had, but the hottest too. Most days it would be cloudly until 10 or so and then the sun began to burn it off, one day it was cloudy all day but you still felt the heat. The hottest days must have been over 40C, those days were just a little too hot for the beach, so the pool was the safer bet as shade was always available.

The Cost/Prices:

Like many other places who have joined the Euro, it is not a cheap place by any means. I would say on average it is probably the same as the UK, an average full English breakfast will set you back about 3.50 Euros, and a pint in the region of 2.50 Euros.

To sum up:

I will miss Protaras, the Andreotis, and the ease of holiday life. No trouble with anybody, the most quiet resort I've ever been to.

Would I come back here? Of course I would.

We've just come back from a week at the Andreotis Apartments in Protaras. Even though the hotel is rated 5th out of 63 in Protaras on this website I was a little unsure what to expect as it was at the cheaper end of the scale. Thankfully it was fantastic. The staff were so friendly and helpful and as you may have read in other reviews the owner Tasos remebers every holidaymaker's name the entire time you're there. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy. Rooms were clean and spacious although I did find the bed a little too hard. Food and drink were reasonably priced, although beware if you are booking the breakfast via Thomas Cook as we paid an extra £6 per person per day for B&B and it turned out the most expensive thing on the breakfast menu was only €4.99, so just buy it when you're there! I thought the location was good, near to Fig Tree Bay which has crystal clear water and at the end of the 'strip' of restaurants and bars which was good as they were quite loud. Avoid the beach at weekends as it's rammed with locals, and don't go on the Aphrodite glass bottom boat cruise if you're expecting a huge glass bottom beacuse its tiny - boat trip was still good though! Would highly recommend the hotel for families or couples!

the reviews on this hotel were all good and we can now see why. the hotel is a 2 minutes walk from fig tree bay and the strip. our room was a very good size with a well stocked kitchen which included kettle toaster and microwave. the bathroom was small but clean and the maids came in every day and done a good job. the pool area is very nice with plenty of beds. the restaurant was lovely with a very good menu and plenty of choice for kids the food was lovely, plenty of it and very reasonably priced we eat there most nights, tassos and george the owners were great nothing was to much trouble for them and yes they realy do remember every bodys names in fact every member of staff was very helpfull. would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to go to protaras. the andreotis is on a busy main road which can get a bit noisy at times but that did not stop us from having a great holiday and plan to return later in the year.

I stayed at the Andreotis apartments with my boyfriend last week, and had an absolutely brilliant holliday!! We stayed for 11 nights and arrived early in the morning on our first day. We checiked in quickly and bought air conditioning (6 euros a day) straight away. We were hungry, so went along Protaras strip and found a bakery that's open every day until really, really late. They sell everything from your everyday convenience foods, to freshly made doughnuts, Turkish (Cypriot) delight and Cypriot sweets and pastries. The strip was quite quiet (it was around 3am).

The pool is really lovely, and the time of year we went, it was still hot, but plenty of sun loungers available around the pool. There were a few kids around, but mainly couples. The pool bar is open everyday, and I enjoyed a few cocktails and ice creams...main restaurant downstairs is open from 9am until late at night. They do the basics, but I really enjoyed the local specialities, including Moussaka and Beef stifado. If you don't like that, then they do really nice burgers and sandwiches. There's always a special of the day for 6.50 Euros - good value for money as very big portions.

The two managers of the restaurant were fantastic, George and Tasos. Knew our names after telling them once, and always eager to see how you're doing. They'll keep the late bar open until you leave - which a couple of times was 5am!

I really liked our room, clean and tidy. Maid cleaned nearly every day. We didn't need the air con every day so we saved some money there. The cooking appliances were a bit basic, and ingredients were pretty pricey in the superarket, which meant we ate out every night. Oh well! Fridge was great for keeping your water and after sun nice and cold.

The strip was great fun - lovely beach, water sports, lots of places where you can eat - we couldn't decide! I will recomment Nichola's Tavern - we had a Meze there twice, really delicious, and Diva Flambe House, which again was fantastic. Fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. The Flambe chef was fantastic and so friendly and the food was excellent. We even went for an all you can eat Mexican one night. Plenty of places to get a cheap full English (one place at them for 2.50 Euros, but we made a mistake by getting a large Diet Coke which was 3.50 Euros each! Made sure I checked the prices of everything...2 beers would have been cheaper!)

Loads of karaoke places, and there are a couple of places at the top of the strip that keep going until after 2pm.

There's a beautiful little church on a hill at the top of Protaras - that's really worth a little visit.

If you go with Thomas Cook, there are plenty of excursions - we went to the Turkish side of Cyprus to visit Farmagusta - that was really interesting and educational. We also went on the Ayia Napa pub crawl, which was great for us having a lively night out as a couple- we made friends that we kept meeting up with for the rest of the holiday. We also went to the water park which is brilliant for kids and big kids!

One day we got the bus (1.50 Euro each) to Ayia Napa and spent the day on Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa. The beach was so beautiful and had DJs playing some tunes - paid for a sunlounger and bought our own food and drink with us. Great fun!

Loved Andreotis and Protaras - I want to go back again. Everyone is so friendly - the locals, the workers and all the holiday makers.

Well where do i begin. My husband and i was not sure about this holiday as we normally stay at four star hotels well how wrong you can be! We only have a couple of downers the beds are very hard i put two blankets under the bottom sheet which it made a slight improvement, sheets where to small for bed and some had holes but all very clean. The fuse went in our room but was put right within fifteen minutes with there lovely saying NO PROBLEM. Its a shame that they have not up graded the showers as the bathrooms have plenty of space. We were staying in a one bedroom apartment the sun was on our balcony from nine thirty to sunset very quite and private. What everyone else has said Tasos remembers very ones names, drinks and his food is very good. This is the third time we have been to Cyprus there is so much to see and do but this time we wanted just to chill out. About fifteen minutes from the hotel we found a small bay with about 20 sun loungers and most of the day it was only us and about ten others, i would like to tell you where it is but we plan to go back later in the year and we dont want to find it crowded!!!! Well the two weeks we spent at the Andreotis has been very special, chilled out and well relaxed.

My boyfriend and I visited The Andreotis in May 2008 and loved it! We are going back to Protaras this year and unfortunately we are not staying at the Andreotis, but purely because Thomas Cook prices for this hotel are now ridiculous! Maybe they have cottoned on to how popular it is! Perfect location, it’s at the end of the strip so no disturbance at night but only a few minutes from the main strip and some great bars and restaurants. I would say May/June is a really good time to go, weather lovely and not over crowded.

We were so lucky as we were staying in one of the studio rooms, but ours was the only one facing the pool, which had a really big balcony with nothing to block the sun – lovely!! (Compared the rooms facing the road which looked quite small) Unfortunately though, we can’t remember the room number to request next time. All the apartments seemed to also have nice big terraces.

Rooms are basic and our bed was very hard, shower really small so shower curtain would stick to you during the shower. However, this hardly bothered us as we still had such a great time and we only paid £240 each for 7 nights!

Some people might say Cyprus has been spoiled with English bars etc, and yes there are a few, such as the fools and horses bar, which we loved and the staff there were lovely!! However, there are also some lovely traditional Greek tavernas. There is one almost next to the hotel and we were lucky enough to see a local wedding one evening, which looked wonderful!

Can’t wait to return to protaras this summer!! Oh yes, almost forgot to mention Fig tree bay! This beach is a few minutes walk from the hotel and it is amazing, crystal clear water.

We stayed here for 1 week ( a few yrs ago now ) having had the apartments recommended to us by a friend.
It seems this place has alot of repeat visitors which is always a good sign :)

The jourmey to and from the airport seemed to take quite a long time, as far as I remember it was over an hour journey. The good thing is you get to see Aiya Napa which looks quite nice. You also get to see loads of other hotels on route and it makes you relaise you got a good locationed one !

The selling point to this hotel I think is that they are very clean, albeit a little basic but they are a decent size & provide everything you need.

The bar staff , as mentioned by others, make a point of learning your name and not forgetting it. I found the food here, which we ate at lunch time round the pool, was actually yummy. We ate such things as omlette and chips and it was of a good standard. I cant remember the local lager name here but it wasnt very strong or to my taste.

We spent a mornings round the pool and then moved onto the lovely Fig Tree Bay beach of an afternoon. We found the pool ok and a decent size, but preferred the stunning beach alot more.

The hotel had internet access in the lobby which you could pay for and a small shop on site. We tended to use the larger supermarket over the road for water and snacks etc

A good point was that as we had a late flight, the apartments provied an area we could use to shower and change in. SOme places dont provide this but it lets you enjoy your last day in the water.

The resort of Protaras was great for 1 week. To summarise our experience I would say its "very English" but this isnt a bad thing. There were a few themed bars eg "Only Fools and Horses" and "Friends" which showed episodes of the show on screens non stop. There were a few authentic restaurants where we enjoyed a few meals, but the "Themed" bars trended to serve omelette and chips or gammon and pineapple. We even visited Mcdonalds for a snack one day.

MOst of the entertainment in this resort and strip of bars / restaurants were tribute acts. If you wanted to see Freddie Mercury or Elvis you could and if you wanted to see them again, you would find the same act in a different bar the next night. Kareoke can be found in many of the bars also, so if you like singing this is the place for you.

I enjoyed my trip to Protaras and would return for the Beach alone which is lovely to swim at. If I did return, then these apartments would be my choice again.

Go and enjoy yourself - its fun :)
