Tourist reviews for Protaras 2022. Holiday prices, tips
Prices in Cyprus right now are great! Beautiful, delicious, no crowds! As soon as the news about the opening of Turkey and the emergence of official flights to Cyprus (June 28), tour prices were reduced. So we grabbed a tour to Cyprus for 66,700 rubles for a week! We bought the tour two days before it.
We bought the tour two days before departure, we made good time with the tests and visas. We bought the tour two days before the flight, got all the tests and visas done in time, flight transfers were canceled, etc. The flight is still with passengers, but it was not afraid to fly, no fear of cancellation. The flight left on time, was no different from the usual flight, the only thing was that they did not feed me at all, only drinks.
This summer I finally visited Cyprus, as for the last five years I had been dreaming to see this island. We went on a trip together with my husband and children who are 5 and 15 years old. I can honestly say that I did not expect that the holidays in Cyprus would be so great that I would not even want to consider something else for a trip with the kids in the future. Protaras has all the conditions for children’s and family holidays. Cafes and restaurants usually close at 2 a.m., so it is safe to sleep with the windows open in the hotel. We stayed at the hotel Papantonia,
- Bathing and sunbathing on the beach.
Not impressed, although my daughter liked it. After visiting zoos and aquariums in large cities, this will seem a zoo.
Myastros hotel in Protaras, everything is good, the water is clean, haven’t seen such clean water and clean beach. Meals at this hotel is poor, very few fruits, breakfasts are the same, I liked the dinner, room service, too.
We had a great stay at the hotel. We had a lot of good restaurants, cafes, bars, and hotels. And one of the best hotels in Protaras (as for me – by far the coolest) – our Sunrise. From the sea – it is impossible to take your eyes away. After grey gloomy April cold, damp and dull off-season, with spring which does not want to come, here in Cyprus, we were in a tender, gaining strength summer. Flowery, green, lush and enveloping-warm. For this happiness, for the opportunity to be transported in just a few hours.
The wonderful resort town of Cyprus. The island I have visited many times, and the last time I went to Protaras, and I can say with confidence that it is the most landscaped place in Cyprus. It is very quiet and peaceful place, there are few parties and discos, so the city is ideal for family holidays, as well as holidays with children. Very many hotels here are equipped with water parks, amusement rides and other entertainment. All this is surrounded by a huge number of trees, flowers, mountains, fresh air from the sea and an amazing atmosphere. There are no sights in the center of the town, but there are several stores and restaurants of homemade Cypriot cuisine. We vacationed in this town with two children who were very happy to be here. The beaches of the year are perfectly clean, there is not a single dirty thing or garbage in the sand. There were a lot of lifeguards on the beaches, so I was calm for my children. The water is also clean, I myself observed how in the morning, people combed out the seaweed that the sea knocked out on the shore. Rest very much liked!
We went to this town with my family and two children, we rented an apartment. The place is very beautiful and quiet. There are almost no noisy festivities, nightclubs and other entertainment. There are a lot of quiet and cozy restaurants, a cafe with a Russian menu. There are not many souvenir shops, but for entertainment and shopping you can go to Ai Napa, which is not far away. In Protaras beaches are clean and sandy, at every step you can see children’s slides and mini water parks. There are even animators on the beach. There are a lot of kids here, and the main thing is that the water is very clean. The beach was cleaned every day, I personally watched it at 5 am. In the center of the city there are grocery stores, not supermarkets, but you can buy food.There are beauty salons, and for some reason there are a lot of places where you can score a tattoo. Cab around town is not expensive, went several times to the waterfront – the most beautiful place in town. It’s a nice, quiet and peaceful town, a perfect place to relax with kids. I advise you to visit.
Good day, yesterday came back from Cyprus. We stayed in Protaras. I liked everything. The staff there were very nice Russian speakers and will always tell you what you need. The goods are of high quality and the most important thing is the very reasonable prices! I also went to the Romeo restaurant. It was a great cuisine and a great concert program. Do not regret to come to Cyprus to rest!
What a fun city Protaras is! Most people say that Protaras is a quiet town for old people and families with children. However, I want to assure everyone that this is not so! We went there as a group of 5 young people. And how everyone thought that we will go from there to Ayia Napa to the night discos and bars. The first few days we decided to walk around and go to a couple of bars. And we were not disappointed! First of all, there are a lot of bars! They serve a great variety of beers, snacks, etc. There are soccer games almost every day. And often in the
- Bathing and sunbathing on the beach.
Cozy and ideally clean town We vacationed in Protaras in June 2013, stayed in Connos Bay Hotel, near Protaras.

Tips for recreation in Protaras
Protaras is a young resort, and you won’t find any special attractions here. To get acquainted with Crete’s past, plan more excursions. If you like independent promenades, go up to the temple of St. Elias and see the Magic Dancing Waters water show in the center of the resort.
A great way to lose those extra pounds you gain in the hospitable tavernas of Protaras is to climb up to the observation deck on a steep 115-meter cliff. The reward will be the newly restored St. Elias Church and the best panoramic view of the city.”
The most accessible mode of transportation at the resort is buses. They run through the city and between the rural areas of Cyprus. Cabs are handy. In Protaras, there is a service “service-taxi” at the hotel receptions. The trip will cost twice as much as by bus, but is cheaper than a regular cab, because the car carries up to 10 passengers.
In Cyprus it is customary to tip maids, porters at the hotel and cab drivers. In restaurants and cafes a 10% service charge is usually included in the bill, so there is no need to tip.
For shopping we advise to go to Limassol, Larnaca or Nicosia.
There are a lot of mosquitoes in Protaras, especially at night. Use repellents!
