I have stayed several years running at these apartments. It's good to avoid the school holiday periods if you want the place to be a bit quieter. But overall, this family run resort is exceptionally quiet. The apartments "over the road" from the main block: pool, bar and restaurant and larger apartments have stunning views over the bay. If you want just a relaxing holiday away from it all, this is the place. The poolside and open air bar are the place to relax during the day, with freshly cooked food available all day. Then in the evening, the restaurant provides a good menu and certain "themed" nights.
I have always travelled using Olympus Holidays via Thomas Cook and found them very helpful in putting together a package of flights, transfers and resort. Representatives are on hand and have a weekly meeting and call in almost daily. I have always found them very helpful in booking day trips, car hire or simply advice as to what is going on etc.
The whole area is very quiet, with only one major up-market (chain) hotel next door - popular as a wedding venue, it would appear. But it doesn't impinge on the Konnos Bay apartments. The beach is very pleasant and popular with the locals at weekends. It is quite a trek down the cliff path but well worth it with sandy beach, waterside bar and restaurant and water/boat activities for hire.
The self-catering apartments themselves are perhaps a little dated and could do with some upgrading - but they are very adequate and kept spotlessly clean. By taking the half-board tariff means that you hardly ever need to prepare anything in the apartment anyway. Next door to them is a small supermarket (owned by the same family) where everything you could need is sold - right down to daily English newspapers.
A relatively quiet road divides the main hotel at the top of the cliff with the two apartment blocks. There is a regular bus service along this road in both directions - either into Protaras or in the direction of Ayia Napia. Taxis are also a regular feature along that strip of road - day and night. But much of the time the place remains quiet.
Good value for money and happy to return there on a regular basis. We came across this treasure as a last minute getaway, found it suited our tastes for a relaxing break, so have felt confident to return several times.
