“comfy but ready for refurbishment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Jusr spent three weeks in Kapetanios hotel, was a bit doubtful after reading some of the reviews before going but need not have worried as it is not as bad as some would have it.
We found the best thing about it was the friendliness of the staff in all areas. We were initially allocaated a room overlooking McDonalds on a late arrival due to flight delay of one hour. We asked the night porter if we could change the to pool side of the hotel, he said we would have to wait until next morning, but he assured us that there would not be a problem and he was correct, next morning we went to the desk after breakfast and the lady receptionist transferred us straight away. Room 204 overlooks the carpark and also the swimmimg pool. Very efficiient air/con too. Room was comfy and clean with a small but adequate balcony with 2 chairs and a small table. Sheets changed about every 3 days.
The bathroom was small everything worked as it should, but it was difficult to use the wash basin as there was a small glass shelf pretty close above it, shower was good with a constant supply of hot water.and towels changed most days.
Dining room when we went in early, it was always easy to get a table, in fact we sat at the same one for most of our stay. Breakfast had something for every taste. Dinner was not so varied day to day, but plenty to choose from.Only complaint, the food was never very hot, apart from the soup. That was scalding.
There were a lot of East Europeans in the hotel during our stay. They like their food and plenty of it, they soon demolished the grapes when they came in.
Dancing waters at the end of the hotel started at 9pm to 10pm. but we never heard it from our room.
The beach which is one of the best we have seen on Cyprus so far is not on the doorstep as one reviewer put it, but is a ten to fifteen minute walk away depending on your fitness and is a gentle down hill walk. We found it tiring walking back up after mid day, but we are getting on a bit now. The beach front has all been updated with a good promenade right up to Fig Tree Bay from the jetty and a good way in the opposite direction.
The only real downside to our stay at this hotel, I have to say its the cigarette smoke inside. It drifted out of the offices behind the desk in reception and it was in the corridors upstairs, it also came in through the balcony into our room.
There is a no smoking sign stuck on the mirror over the dressing table, when you look at it closer, it says in small print at the bottom IN BED. OK if you are a smoker I suppose, but not very nice if you have just got over a chest infection as we had.
In general, its a small but comfortable hotel right in the centre of bars and restaurants. One good place to eat if you want a change, try Mr Cod just round the corner from the hotel. We were on half board but we went and can highly recommend it. They do Sunday roasts too.

Room Tip: rooms on the poolside are quiter

We looked for cheap hotel in the centre of Protaras and we choosed this one. We asked room with pool view, because other side is oriented to the nain street. Rooms are little bit tired, but we only sleep there, so it was not important for us. The food was very very good, staff excellent especially waiters.And the room was cleaned every day, if you want and the tavels changed. So, we have got the best for our money. And that is the reason for the 5points.

Room Tip: choose the room with pool view

Just returned from a short break with B&B. The hotel is very central to all amenities, is a little dated but is spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were superb. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Will definitely return, due to its excellent location and value for money

Room Tip: twin bedded rooms are larger, book a fridge in advance

This was are second stay here went in June last year and it was very busy, not so busy in September until we requested a late room as we were not getting Picked up till 11pm so we had to check out by 12 i asked if we could keep the room on two days before checkout day the Guy on Reception said Come on Wednesday after Breakfast and ask then but we are fully booked up its 27euro to keep the room but i am sure we can sort a courtesy room for you to Shower and change Last year some people got to keep there room or if not there was a Courtesy room to use !! So i went back on are Checkout day and asked the Women Receptionist if we can have a late room we also had two rooms so we only needed one She said quite abrupt No fully booked so i asked for a Courtesy room to use again No you will have to shower and change at the pool !!! bearing in mind we did not arrive in are rooms until 4am in the morning and are rooms were booked from the day before i think it was a case of they did not want the hassle this Hotel has 135 rooms and they are telling me they will be all full as soon as we have Checked out !! the breakfast was this time not good we ate out some mornings,this hotel is used by a lot of eastern European travel agents so there are not a lot of English the feeling was they get priority over the English,We did get a room to shower in Thanks to a couple we got chatting to they kindly let us use there room.
