More Than You'd Expect From a 3 Star/Excellent Service
"I stayed at Tssokos Gardens in Aug a couple of years ago with my family, i was dreading a family holiday but it turned out being one of the best holidays i've had. The hotel is very basic and the rooms are apartments as a family me and my bro shared one room and my parents had a pull out bed(bed was very hard apparently) The weather was beautiful and the town that the hotel was in was very quiet compared to the hotels located closer to the Protaras strip. we went on some amazing excursions such as an under-sea walk-highly reccommend, walking along the sea bed with a divers helmet connected to an air pump. we went on a jeep safari day trip which was a little overated but we did learn about Cypriot culture and see Trudos mountains.
Pools were great but quiet busy, had clean towels everyday.
Food was a little repetative but on the whole great choice with excellent service from staff whom were very happy to help.
Def ideal for families or even for groups whom dont mind a 5 min walk into the town.
To be honest most of the hotels in Cyprus are quiet basic and there is not a great deal of high star hotels.
Feel free to ask any questions"

These are not a 3+ T
"Booked to stay in an apartment in a hotel complex. was contaced some weeks after booking to be told the pictures on the website were not of the hotel and the apartments were in a separate annex next door to the hotel. Three weeks before departure we received another letter saying the apartments were closing and we would be staying next door to the hotel in another set of apartments. The apartments were old and dirty they were of 2* rating. The bedding was old and when we requested blankets and pillows it took over 24hours to get them. My 13 year old son who we had also paid an adult price for had to sleep on a very narrow dirty and uncomfortable sofabed for a week. We awoke one morning after a rainy night to find that the roof was leaking onto the bed thus meaning we had to sleep with a saucepan on it to catch the drips. we tried to move to the hotel but after viewing one of the rooms we decided that the only difference to the apartment was size, they were tiny. Also a word of warning, if you hire a car in cyprus be aware that if you park half off, half on the pavment like many of the locals do, if seen by a traffic warden you will recieve a fifty CYP fine."

"We have just returned from this hotel,been going back for the last 6 years,it is still as good.It was nice to see the rooms have had a bit of a make over.The food was good and plentiful, pool was clean,the staff worked hard to make your holiday relaxing.But my only problem was on day 9 0r 10 we were invaded by Iraq's,there was 150 or more of them they were very rude,greedy and went in the pool with there clothes on well some of the ladys.Considering this is mainly a 95% British holiday makers hotel,and how the British see them, there are many hotels on the island that they could have gone to.So if you want to avoid them come during Ramadam next year its [20th july-18th aug].But on a lighter note this is a good hotel with plenty to do and see ,after all its what youdo that makes your holiday.

"This was our 2nd year to Tsokkos Gardens and hopefully we will be going again next year.
Couldn't fault it at all. Was pleasantly surprised to see that the rooms have had a bit of a make over, floors now tiled or laminate flooring down and the bathrooms basin area have been updated.
Foods good as usually. I don't now how people can say its ok and warm/cold, perhaps they meant the salad!!
So much to choose from, spolit for choice, we were all inclusive(first time)
Entertainment was good especially the party rock athem dance at the end lol.
Roll on next year whoop whoop."

"Lovely hotel, lots to do in hotel rangeing from daytime quiz, pool games etc, no pressure to do these. Very clean rooms, surrounding gardens & pool areas. Many pools to choose from. Good range of quality food,well presented & all made fresh. Very pleasent staff, even had time to have conversation with friendly residents. Excellent entertainment provided by Thomas Cook staff (Elvis not up to much though). Short walk to Marlita beach where water sports are available & about 20 minute walk on new seafront boardwalk. Very laid back place to visit, livlier bars etc in main Protaras. Lots to do for families with small & older children, Protatas has something for everyone. Eating out in Protaras is reasonable, but drinks & snacks can eat away at you budget. Have booked again at this hotel for 2010, can't wait to go back."

"i went to cyprus on the 18th august 2009 with my family for 2 weeks all inclusive, it was the best holiday i have ever been on with no problems what-so-ever! the staff were kind and friendly, always had a smile on their face and was always there to help. their was always a different food from a different culture every night an they was all very nice.the young entertainment people were great and always had something new and funny to say each day! they was also great with kids - we had to children with us on our stay both aged 12, and about 10 adults their because a close freind was getting married there. the entertainment staff were great with our children. when it come to the wedding date the hotel staff were great they kept bringing up more and more food then kept asking if we was alright and every think was goin well. there was lots of beaches nearby an the weather was great for them as well. the maids in the hotel changed our towels every two days and come in our room every morning after we went to breakfast so they could clean our rooms and make the beds.there are three pools one that is quiet shallow for youger children then there was just a average rectangle sized pool that was about just over 1 metre deep, then outside the hotel part there was a nice sized pool quiet shallow then a bridge then a bit deeper pool the same size then another bridge with another pool which is very deep compared to the other ones, the three pools which have bridges by them are all joint by the bridge which makes the pool extremely big and suitable for any age.near the deep part of the large pool is where you can get food like crisps, ice cream, drinks, burgers , chips, toasties and lots more aswell all at a small price unless your all in clusive. down by the shallow part of the big pool is where you can get drinks, ice cream and lots of other stuff too (this is the main bar).i think cyprus was a lovely holiday and so was the hotel. if we ever wanted to go out for the day we would just let the lovely reception woman know an she made us a lovely pack lunch to take with us which included sandwiches, drinks, fruit, and some other bits and bobs. i am definatley looking at going back to cyprus next year to the same hotel and i WILL be taking my children with me because i know the staff are lovely and my children will be in a safe enviroment with the staff and other children and their parents. i would recomend this hotel to anyone i know an people i dont know because of how nice this hotel and the area is.

FANTASTIC FAMILY HOTEL
"My Husband, our two sons (aged 4 and 7) and I have just returned from 2 weeks All Inclusive staying at the Tsokkos Gardens Complex which is in Pernera, next door to Protaras. Protaras is only a 20 minute walk away along the new seafront path (suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs) which has been completed this year. This complex consists of a Hotel and an Apartment block, which is next door. Both have their own pools but the main Entertainment and all meals are held in the Hotel (which takes you less than 2 minutes to walk to).
The Hotel is very clean, with regular maid service and friendly staff. We were placed in the Apartment block which meant we had a self contained flat to ourselves rather than having a hotel room with 4 beds crammed in. The Apartment was spacious with a fridge, microwave, cooking facilities, TV (only 1 english channel) and hairdryer. We had a bedroom with 2 large single beds put together to make a queen size bed and in the front room there was a sofa with a pull out bed underneath. We have stayed in Cyprus a number of times now and would recommend any of the Tsokkos hotels as they are all family run and they know exactly what the English like. We stayed all Inclusive which was ideal for us. Breakfast was served from 7am-10am, snacks were available from the poolside bar from 10.30am until 5pm, lunch was at 12.30pm-2.30pm and evening meal (various theme nights and vegetarian meals on request) was served from 6.30pm-9.30pm. You could request a packed lunch if you were going out for the day and hire a cool box. Also you could have unlimited hot,soft and local alcoholic drinks from 10am til midnight and unlimited icecreams for the children during the same time.
There were 3 swimming pools to choose from. The largest one being based outside the Hotel which had the daytime activities around, a medium sized one outside the Apartment blocks which was quieter and another outside the Sun Apartment which was next door but easily accessible. The daytime activities started at 10am with a game (ie darts, pool, boules), 11am was Water Aerobics and 12 noon was quiz time around the pool. There was then a break with another 2 activities in the afternoon (ie water polo and water volleyball).
The evening entertainment started at 8pm with Childrens disco and games, followed by bingo (very funny and well worth taking part, the prize each night was â¬20 line and over â¬150 full house)and then at 10pm there was a show. The Entertainment Team (Rich, Meg, Cat and Em) totally made our holiday as their shows were fantastic. The best shows while we were there was New Years Eve 1989! and Follow the Yellow Brick road, their version of what would happen to Dorothy if she got lost on the Yellow Brick Road and bumped into James Bond, The Blues Brothers and Grease!!! The best part is that all the Entertainment on the complex finishes at midnight so it is quiet enough to get to sleep ready for another fun packed day. I would definitely recommend this complex to anyone (or any of the Tsokkos Hotels) and I am already looking at booking again."
