Just returned from a week stay at the Rising Star Beach Hotel in Protaras. I had read all the reviews before booking and was not dissappointed when we arrived. The rooms, pool area and hotel in general were very well kept and clean. During our week stay the room was serviced everyday, bins emptied, beds made etc and the towels and linen were changed twice while we were there. We had a 1 bedroom apt for 2 of us and found it spacious as we had a seperate bedroom, living area with kitchen area and a balcony. The hotel is well placed, right next to the beach and close to the town for restaurants etc but far enough away that you are not disturbed by late night music.
Although we travelled as a couple without children it was obviously a firm favourite with families. I would say it is ideal for families with children as the entertainment team work hard to ensure all needs are catered for.
We booked self catering but people who had booked all inclusive said the food was excellent with a good choice. Eating out was not as expensive as we had anticipated and there is plenty of choice. Personally I enjoy the experience of trying different restaurants rather than being restricted by all inclusive. However many restaurants were offering a set menu option for around 9 - 10 euros and the local wine is surprisingly good (approx 10 euros for a litre carafe). I would recommend the food at Zucchinis and the meze at Nicolas Tavern was very good (but be warned there is lots of it). Overall I don't think you will be dissappointed if you choose the Rising Star. Yes there is some building work going on nearby and the diggers don't enhance the scenery but we really didn't find it a problem.
