The Wife and I stayed 11 nights at Astreas in a one bedroom apartment with a side sea view.
Apartments are basic, a little bit tired and in need of a little modernisation, but very, very clean, odd tile in bathroom cracked and could do with re-grouting, but generally apartment has been decorated and was clean and bright and more than adequate.
Towels and bed linen were changed regularly, and floors swept and mopped
Staff were excellent, very helpful, polite and friendly, especially the two females on reception. Apartments and pool surrounded by well tended grounds. Apartments very quiet but literally 2 minutes walk to 'The strip' with plenty of bars and restaurants. We would recommend the Olympus restaurant at the end of the road and also the supermarket just down the road from the apartments.
Fig Tree Bay beach is beautiful with plenty of sun beds (at half the price of Spanish ones) but you need to get to them by about 10 am to guarantee getting them and at the weekends when the locals fill the beach you need to get there a lot earlier to get beds. There is a small public car park between the apartments and beach but it doesn't spoil sea views and the walk to the beach is not much more than a minute.
The bus service to the other parts of the Island were fantastic and well worth hopping on and doing some exploring. Only 3 euros for an all day pass, really good value, puts the UK to shame.
Had a really good holiday there and would recommend to anyone who wants to go to Protaras.
Only complaint, we used the beach all the time except the first half day, but you are not allowed your own food and drink around the pool area, not even a bottle of water!
I did confirm this with the apartment owner, in that heat and not your own water, hence we used the beach as I would rather pay for beds than pool drinks all day, so the owner is cutting his own throat because now we were not buying their pool food either.
