If you’re looking for a hotel experience that provides everything for the perfect holiday, then the St Elias Resort in Protaras might be the place to start your search. Good access to some of Cyprus’ best beaches and liveliest nightlife are a bonus in this family-friendly haven.
You’ll know that the St Elias Resort is a fabulous place for families as soon as you arrive and clap your eyes on a pool complex that includes a mini water park.
It’s not all about the kids here, though. Mums and dads – and other grown-ups – have plenty to enjoy. There’s a busy entertainment programme for adults. If you’re the active type, then there’s an excellent modern gym, alongside a tennis court, and bike rental. To add some pampering into the mix just slip from the pool to the spa and wellness centre for massage and beauty treatments, a sauna, hot tub and Jacuzzi. In fact, the provision of a kids’ club for youngsters might mean extra time for parents to act their age.
There are good practical facilities on site at St Elias Resort, all delivered by English-speaking staff, including a gift shop, and free Wi-Fi.
There isn’t a beach just outside the door, but at 2km away it’s hardly a long trek. Protaras’ many sandy beaches – with family friendly swimming – on Fig Tree Bay, mean a lot of choice for those who want to swim or sun in natural surroundings.
Protaras is purpose built, but the more traditional Cypriot town of Paralimni is a short drive (or longish walk) away, and to the south lies Ayia Napa, one of Europe’s most famous party and clubbing resorts.
Away from the seafront strips, beautiful natural coastlines are a big attraction for those seeking solitude and adrenaline-hungry adventure sports types.
You can enjoy excellent quality facilities and services at this truly family-friendly resort hotel, and make the most of one Europe’s finest holiday coasts. Enjoy great-value prices through loveholidays when you book your stay at St Elias Resort.

The holiday resort of Protaras on the south east coast of Cyprus has all the trappings of the larger, more frenetic Ayia Napa that is a few minutes drive away, but it is far more family friendly and boasts the best beach on the island, fabulous Fig Tree Bay.
Protaras is actually a town built on a piece of flat, scrubby land expressly for the purpose of catering for British holidaymakers. Just adjacent to the village of Paralimni, Protaras consists mainly of a grid of restaurants, nightclubs and shops surrounded by numerous hotels and holiday apartment blocks. Landscaping is rather lacking and the buildings do not follow any theme: it is a hodge-podge of architecture and concrete that can get blistering hot in the summer sun.
No-one seems to mind the lack of genuine Cypriot atmosphere, however, because Protaras does what it was intended to do, and that is give everyone a great holiday. Then, too, it has the magnificent golden Blue Flag beach, which stretches for 10 miles (16km) or so shelving gently into the crystal clear Mediterranean, and further up and down the coast a choice of secluded coves and inlets for those wanting more privacy.
The main beach at Protaras offers a vast range of water sports opportunities and equipment hire, from paddle boats to jet skis. The resort caters particularly well for children, most of the hotels and apartment complexes offering excellent Kid's Clubs. There are two exciting water parks nearby at Ayia Napa, which provide thrills and spills for all ages. Most visitors enjoy a stroll along the clifftops of the coastline, particularly in spring when the landscape is covered in wild flowers. The more energetic can hike up the steep crag on the outskirts of the resort to the Ayios Ilias Church from where there is a spectacular view. Local operators offer several day trips, sea cruises and excursions to places of interest, like into the Troodos Mountains or to explore the city of Nicosia.
Holidaymakers will find that Protaras has dozens of restaurants and fast food outlets, mainly catering for the usual tourist fare of pizza, curry, burgers and the like. Many local establishments are run by British ex-pats. Visitors who enjoy making the most of the local produce should opt for one of the many open-air seafood restaurants. For Cypriot specialities try Bambos, which serves a mix of local and international fare, or the Nicolas Taverna renowned for delectable kleftico.
At night Protaras main street erupts into a noisy sound and light show as the many disco/bars, pubs and clubs turn up the volume to draw in the crowds and holidaymakers up for a party. Many establishments offer live entertainment or karaoke and the discos feature English deejays and laser lights. There are only a few nightclubs, and serious all-night clubbers prefer to travel to Ayia Napa for the evening. Recommended for an entertaining evening of dancing is Sfinx, the bar at the Paralimni end of the main road.
The shops in Protaras centre may look a little tacky, but they provide everything required by holidaymakers, from beach paraphernalia to souvenirs. There are several hundred retail establishments in the resort including supermarkets, clothing stores and jewellers. Serious bargain hunters are advised to take a bus or taxi to nearby Agia Napa where there is an abundance of stores selling tax free designer goods. Local jewellery and leather goods are also good souvenirs from Protaras.
Protaras resort is not aesthetically pleasing or scenic, and the nearby village of Paralimni is also far from a quaint, authentic Greek Cypriot town. Young clubbers may be disappointed in the nightlife, which is more family-oriented, but there is the option of travelling to nearby Ayia Napa.
