Protaras is growing and Paralimni is creeping closer, we went on a walk, out past the Rising Star, but only went round first corner to hit the building sites and the new esplanade that will join the two and no doubt bring all the beach lovers to an all ready crowded fig tree bay, we love Cyprus and in particular Protaras, and we do not want to say, we will not go again, but, we think we may look to the smaller resorts between the big ones, also bargains are almost impossible to find when...

I cannot believe that other customers didn't hear the music from the depressing Rising Sun pub across the road, thank goodness they didn't have really late nights (12 or 1 at weekends - approx). Food was horrific too, no flavour. Not a culture vultures idea of a holiday. Rude people the locals quite often, I mean aggressive, especially the bus drivers. Sad and the prices have gone up with the advent of the euro. (read more)

Just got back from a one week stay at the Golden Star, myself, partner and two children.
Yes the rooms were in need of updating but compared to some Greek/Cyprus holidays I found the apartment spacious and had all we needed. Air con in main bedroom free but only an on/off switch on the wall, could have done with a control on some nights as it wasn't set as cold as we needed it (occasionally) but definitely OK. No air con in kitchen/lounge where the children slept so hired a fan from... (read more)

Had a fantastic week in mid June and will definitely be returning. Location of hotel is ideal as away from the main strip but close enough. Hotel good value for money but obvious exchange rate made eating and drinking expensive. Food so good you cannot resist! (read more)

I went to the Golden Star in October 2007 for my 60th birthday with my family and friends (there were 13 of us). We had a fantastic time. I agree the rooms were a bit dated but were clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We will certainly be going back. Even though it was the end of the season there was still plenty of to do without everywhere being overcrowded. We also had a fantastic time on the Water Sports and celebrated my 60th birthday by going paragliding with my brother.... (read more)

This is our second time, and we will be going back again. Hotel rooms are dated but very clean. Pool great, restaurant great, pub and entertainment great. When we arrived there were six families, that we met last time we stayed. It was great to see them again, and they too will be returning. Also made new friends which will be returning. This says it all. There are great places to eat for all ages. Only bad meal was pizza hut even the kids would not eat it. Really good meal was Mr Cod best... (read more)

When we arrived we were really disappointed, the reception was really dated and so was the room. We'd paid a lot because of going in August and it wasn't at all value for money.
We spent the first two days by our pool, it was pretty boring, no entertainment or atmosphere at all, so after that we went over to the Rising Star to use there pool, it was really nice, entertainment Mon-Sat, bar serving nice food and a great kids room.
The beach by the golden star is nice but very rocky in the... (read more)

It does look like there are more bad points than good but we had a really good time. The resort is lovely, the only downside was the room, when we walked in from a long flight and hour's transfer it was a big disappointment. Much could be done to improve the general decoration of the rooms and the tiles on the floor are all chipped. My advice would be not to go to the Golden Star Apartments in the first week of the season as the shops aren't fully stocked. No entertainment at the pub and... (read more)

We were so disappointed that we had only booked for one week, but we are making up for that by going for two fortnight holidays this year, and next year our daughter is getting married in the Capo Bay hotel but we shall still be staying at the GOLDENSTAR.
Everything about this lovely friendly hotel just makes you want to come back time after time - I think we have found our Shangri-La.
The pool area is spotless and at the time of year we go (mid September) is not over crowded, the restaurant... (read more)

The Golden Star Apartments in Protaras is the best place I have been to. You can have both a relaxing holiday in the day, while at night the place is bouncing. The hotel is right on the beach, so you can't go wrong. TOP PLACE!
My holiday to Protaras is easily the best holiday I've had. I had everything I wanted from a good holiday. From a relaxing day at the pool or beach, which is literally on your door step, to the great bars like Bells bar, Ghetto bar or Robin Hood. Also, the food was... (read more)

Overall, the Golden Star Apartments in Protaras was an excellent place to stay. The location was excellent. The staff were very friendly and willing to help. The facilities were very good with the pool, the bar, and also a tennis court. The resort was also very good, with nice restaurants, and it is not far from Ayia Napa if you want to try something different. I would definitely recommend it to other people, but it is perhaps better suited for families and couples. (read more)

What a fantastic holiday. Golden Star Apartments are Situated in a lovely part close to the beach and all amenities. Could not fault it in any way. The only thing is people still insisted on reserving sun beds. Even people up in their rooms from the balconies reserved the beds and watched us move their towels and moaned at us. Entertainment excellent in the rising sun pub. All in all great place to be. (read more)
