“A lucky find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Booked accommodation at Captain Karas just for a couple of nights when visiting friends in the area. It was easy to find and we had an excellent friendly welcome. The accommodation was what we expected for the price but was clean and comfortable with inclusive air conditioning, television, etc. Outside there is a large shaded area covered in vines (use plenty of insect repellent!), a lovely clean pool with plenty of sunbeds and a large lawned area. The pool bar is open from 9 - 5 where they serve breakfast and other food throughout that time. The mini breakfast was just right for me - one rasher of bacon, one sausage, a fried egg and a spoonful of beans plus a slice of toast, a steal at 2 euros! I had a tuna salad pitta for lunch, which lasted me two days, which was also very inexpensive and packed! There is also a large restaurant and a pub, the Pig & Whistle, a bar and a games area - something for everyone. Without exception, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We would definitely use this place again.

my sister and i spent a week at the karas apartments. due to checking out of the Amore within an hour of arrival we found the karas aprtments and were warmly greeted. The staff were excellent, accomadating and really approachable.
Our apartments were clean spacious and had everything we needed rightaway. we met some lovely interesting people during our stay who go back to the karas year after year, so we not only found for ourselves how lovely it was we had people who had been before telling us.
My sister and i wanted a quiet non eventful relaxing week and thats what we got, we travelled in the middle of september. Protaras is a lovely place full of bars, hotels and nightlife. Kapparis is a bit quieter with a few bars and restaurants which is just what we wanted. would definately go again!!!

Read a few reviews of this hotel before staying on the 31st August. And they where very mixed. But overall we had a fab time here and no complaints. Me and my friend stopped here for 11 nights. It is on a busy road thats only 5 mins from the bus stop whih takes you to penera, protaras or ayia napa for 1 euro. The location of the accommodation itself is a little out of the way to the busier parts of protaras but the bus services are brilliant. Better than england. There is a small cove five minutes walk from the hotel but it isnt a beach. The closest beach is in protaras which is well worth the visit.
The apartments them selfs are VERY clean and equipt with a flat screen TV, kettle, toaster, kitchenette area and a full bathroom, and a massive terrance. We stayed in room 206 which was on the bottom floor and over looked the pool area. Only down side is on a night it is very dark at the back of the apartments to get into your room.
The pool area is large with plenty of sunbeds, so no need to get up early. There's a little pool bar that serves food and drinks through out the day at cheap prices. and the food here is fab!!
All the staff are english and very friendly as its family run.
The pool area is open to public as well as the customers that have booked. But doesnt get too busy. Ther eis also a pub/bar/restaurant attatched to the apartments called the Pig & Whistle which is always busy on a night but this doesnt disturb your sleep.
We hired a car for three days which there is car hire rentals on the road of the apartments. Its alot easier to get around in a car and deffinatly worth hiring one to see the sights.
The manager of the hotel let us keep our room on for free the last day as we didnt fly until late which was a bonus, but this was obviously because the apartments where not busy as we left. So this might not happen all the time.
The pictures of these apartments dont do it justice as its a beautiful place, and very clean.
Brillaint value for money and we enjoyed every minute of it.
I would recommend these apartments to visit cyprus, dont let the location put you off as there is plenty of transport.
I will be returning here again.

Room Tip: Room 206 - This room is on the floor and has a nice view of the pool.

We only had a 2 day stay but would certainly consider staying again for longer. this hotel provided a comfortable break away, with a good clean, well equipt room. The Pig n Whistle offer good basic food at a reasonable price, while across the road there is 'Just Italian' where we ate both nights, excellent Italian food, we live in Cyprus so this provided a welcome change for us. There is a lovely little sandy beach cove close by. Although the hotel is situated on a main road the traffic dies down at a reasonable time.

The pool at Karas Apartments proved a big hit for the kids.
The owners happy for non-residents to visit.
No shallow end, although there is a separate baby pool.
Clean, no nasty ear problems swimming here.
Food good, breakfast awesome with good menu choices for kids.

Captain Karas Apartments are located right to a main road with shops and restaurants close by.
The Studios are simple but clean,have a fully eqquipped kitchen and spacius for 2 people.
The staff and owners dont seem to care a lot,though they are friendly.
