Worst hotel in protaris maybe ?
"2nd visit to this hotel was absolutely shocked and appalled at the standard of the place receptionists were miserable and rude bar staff were rude and not interactive rooms were filthy and ant infested food was just ok would not recommend this hotel in a nut shell it was rubbish ..oh the only decent part of hotel was the pool but still would not go back rating out of 29 would be 2 please don't waste your money ."

Protaras is BEAUTIFUL shame about Vangelis hotel
"PROTARAS,CYPRUS IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE, me and my family loved it over there, hotel was in a perfect location by the beach, surrounded by fantastic scenery, loads of bars, restaurants and easy access to other parts of Cyprus, however VANGELIS APARTMENT HOTELS was well below our standards by far, most of the staff were ignorant and dismissive, the rooms were out dated, insect infested and not the cleanest. On our first night we got back to our apartment and there was hundreds of little insects running around in there, our daughter was 10 months at the time there was no way we were sharing the room with them insects, we went to reception, told them about the situation, we wasn't given another room we was given some insect killer spray instead to fumigate the room ourselves. I spent half hour fumigating the room while my partner and daughter was waiting outside wanting to go to bed. The rest of the holiday was insect free however i was very distracted at the fact these insects could come back. This was quite disgusting. The best thing about this hotel is the pool was decent shame about the mash up sun loungers though, half of them were broke. I wouldn't recommend this hotel or return to there. AVOID THIS HOTEL UNLESS YOU LIKE INSECTS AND THE 1980S. Leon"

"well all i can say is that i have stayed at these apartments on four occassions and think they are very well situated for all the facilities you require on holidays. also stayed at the melini next door and i would say value for money vangelis comes out on top,myself,wife and both sis in law and bro in law love cyprus and know the best times to go i would NOT RECOMEND YOU GO IN OCTOBER AS EVERY THING SHUTS DOWN if you intend going; go to either limasol or paphos which is open in october. the service you get from staff at the apartments is very good rooms are very basic but clean and close to all the shops bars and restuarants, 1 place to eat is anotollia on the top road into protaras also yia mias or george's bar, needless to say we r returning to the vangelis in july this year and r very much looking forward to it "

vangelis hotel protaras
"myself husband and inlaws have just come back on mon 25th sept 11 from this hotel the rooms are really distusting something from the 1950s pool resterant and reception is lovely and food fair but we had a one bed apartment in a block the beds were rock hard and one of beds in living area was what we would call a pasting board at home.the next day i went to reception to be moved and they said that was what we payed for i dont call paying 3500 pound for what we had we had to get our thomas cook rep to get us moved into another room which was much better i think the hotels over priced for its condition."

"Just back from Protaras and Vangelis.The hotel is great. The funiture in the apartment was not fantastic,but we spent our days outside not inside looking at the intrior.The hotel and the pool-area was very clean.The staff was helpful and friendly ,especially in the diningroom and bar. And the food!!!!! we had breakfast and dinner there every day for our 2 weeks stay and just loved the buffets. Can not understand that anybody would not like the food in Vangelis!!!!Also location of Vangelis is great,just a few meters to walk and you are in the centre of Protaras. We will go back to Cyprus,and to Vangelis!"

lovely place apartment not great
"We stayed at the Vangelis and went self catering,the apartment was of an adequate standard but it was right next to a Kareoke bar so it was very noisy. There were electrical wires exposed under the headboard and there was a cigarette burn in the sink! But it was clean and we had clean towels and bedding nearly everyday. We did have a great seaview though so it wasn't all bad! The pool was lovely and there were plenty of loungers. Protaras itself was lovely, we especially liked the Fools and Horses Bar and the Cheers bar the staff were delightful.Ayia nappa is only a short bus ride and is definately worth a visit. We would certainly go back again. 10/10 for Protaras"

NIGHTMARE, don't waste your money.
"booked with olympic holdidays paid Â£3,500+ for two adults ,2 teenagers. The room was absolutly disgusting. It stunk of urine, had ants running everywhere even in the bedroom, the fridge was broken on the handle and mouldy, the bed settee was broken with a big hole in the middle, the toilet was leaking, rust was running down the walls, mould was all around the bath and floor,there were white stains on the settees, the bath water was coming out brown, what more can i say! save your money and don't go there. I complained to the tour operator with no satisfaction, basically they don't give a damn. I am only writing this because i don't want other families going and having to put up with this kind of filth.It totally ruined our holiday and we would never go there again. The entertainment around the pool was good and protaras its self is beautiful, so if you want a nice place to stay i recommend you find another accommadation.be warned."

"I have stayed in a few different apts in Protaras, and was a bit dubious when we booked, as we had got such a good deal! But on arrival at the apts I was pleasantly surprised how quickly we were checked in. On entering our one bedroom apt it was spacious and exceptionally clean, which continued throughout our stay. This was the first year we have gone all inclusive, which was well worth it. The food was exceptional!!! Not forgetting your drinks, through the day pints of water and ice cream to cool down, and into the twilight hours whatever drink you desire!! There was Entertainment day and night. Gemma, Jodie and Brett working their charm on all to join in the daily and nightly activities. The staff were always helpful and cheerful. I would highly recommend this accommodation!!! P.S. Already looking to book next year! "

I dont no what i was worrying about!!!
"After reading reviews on a few sites i was very worried about going on holiday 2 the Vangelis in cyprus. But there was no need 2 have worried at all. The check in was quick and we were pointed in the right direction of our room. After entering our room i was so happy, it was clean, tidy and actually really nice. The beds werent hard and the kitchen was well equipt. The cleaner came twice a week and changed beds and 6 days out of 7 she emptied bins and changed towels and mopped the floors. The pool area was clean and we never struggled getting a sun bed even if we didnt arrive until 11am. We didnt eat at the hotel so i cant comment on food. Overall we had a great 2 wks at the vangelis. I would go back as it great value 4 money."

Will Be Returning
"We have just returned from an all inclusive holiday at the Vangelis and we are more than satisfied with the apartment, its cleanliness and its location. The food is excellent and caters for all tastes and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We are now planning a return trip later in the year. I would recommend the Vangelis to anyone who wants a good value holiday in a fantastic location. I cannot understand why anyone wants to knock the place, it seems they want a 5 star hotel for 2 star money."
