We stayed at the villa for 4 nights due to attending a family wedding. It truly exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
The pool is great with plenty of sun beds and the location worked well for us in terms of beaches, shops and restaurants. The bedrooms were very comfortable with great, modern shower facilities. Kitchen is large and spacious. The grocery pack on arrival was a wonderful surprise after a day of early morning travel. We couldn’t recommend the villa enough to anyone looking at booking in Cyprus.
A few days ago my family and i (5 adults in total) returned to the UK after a fabulous stay at Crystal Bay Villa. We all loved it! The villa is very modern, spacious and airy with fantastic facilities. The owners have clearly thought of every little detail, helping to make our stay ultra relaxing! And relax we did.
The pool was fabulous! It was a great size, big enough to have a good swim if you wish. The pool also benefits from sunshine for most of the day too. There is a great BBQ area which we made the most of each day.
Yannis, the maintenance guy was great! He was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. We did have an issue with the AC in the downstairs bedroom there which Yannis looked into. And very shortly after this i received an email from the owners advising us of when repairs would be done. The contact with the owners prior to our stay and also during our stay was great.
We loved the location of the villa. Although it wasn't within the 'hustle & bustle' of it all, there were a choice of restaurants within easy walking distance if we didn't want to venture too far. Saying that, Protaras is just a short bus journey away and with the bus stop only just down the road and buses arriving every 15 minutes, getting there and back was easy.
We loved Serena Bay! Although this wasn't the closest beach, it was only a 10 minute walk from the villa. Beautiful little beach with a great bar open for refreshments during the day.
All in all, we could not fault our stay in this lush villa! None of us wanted to come home, it offered everything that we wanted and needed. We will most certainly be returning in the future.
Amazing stay. 5 star accommodation with an ideal location.
The pool was a great size and warm enough to enjoy all day. We travelled with grandparents so the steps in and out of the pool were great to have as was the downstairs bedroom and bathroom.
Kitchen has everything you could possibly need and we enjoyed the bbq. Huge fridge freezer.
The outside areas were beautiful, perfect for family lunches and drinks in the evening.
All the furnishings, bathrooms etc new and modern. Aircon was effective but not overly needed as the fans do a great job of cooling the rooms.
Location wise you have the track running down the side of the villas that leads to the beach, great for snorkelling at the cove nearby.
If you go to the road behind the villa and turn left, walk a couple hundred yards and you’ll find cottage bar which is walking distance, good cocktails and always seems to be open as is the shop next door where you can get ice, groceries and everything you need for the beach.
Turning right from the road behind the villa, make your way back to the round about that bends to the left and on the 3rd exit you’ll find the amazing bakery. Gorgeous patisserie, hot food and breads.
For the best supermarket go to the metro which is on the second exit (straight over the roundabout) you’ll get all your fresh seafood, meat and wonderful Greek foods here.
Pernera is well worth a visit, we had our best meal here at sizzlers steak and flambé house. We also visited protaras most nights. Rives bar is such fun for all the family. Il Basilico our favourite restaurant here, family Italian food.
Cabs are easy to get as are the buses but we’re glad we had a car to explore.
We’ve visited Cyprus many times, for us this villa is our favourite for location and luxury.
Hope we can return soon!! We didn’t want to leave
Spacious 4 double bedroomed villa , clean and well appointed .
The downstairs living accommodation is really great as is the large pool and surrounding outdoor area. We were a party of 6 adults and 1 small child and there was plenty of room for us all.
There is plenty of seating both inside and out for a larger party than we were, including 2 large outdoor tables next to the pool. Quality sun loungers around the larger than average pool which is in the sun almost all day saw us spend almost all of our time outside
The large fridge freezer in the modern kitchen was a real bonus.
The bedrooms were all a good size, the beds comfortable and each room had plenty of storage space
The villa is in a quite area about a mile north of Pernera and whilst there was a little noise from traffic on the road directly behind the Villa the noise from traffic was not an issue and I am sure it will decrease once the road works in Pernera are finished and most traffic will revert to using the top road , anyway it was very handy to have a bus stop 100 metres away. Local fare was 1.25 euro to any of the local towns and resorts and the bus to Pernera centre was no more than 5 mins.
There are a couple of shops and eateries within a five min walk , the beach is even nearer, I would recommend anybody to visit the deli/coffee shop which is on the roundabout 10 mins walk away.
There are lots of bars and eateries in Pernera and Protarus with quality food at reasonable prices
The Villa itself is a credit to the owner Harry, who provided us with a huge amount of info before we arrived. All things considered , this is a quality Villa whichnis well appointed and I have no hesitation in recommending Crystal Bay Villa as a great place to enjoy the sunshine and the local resorts from , so much so we are already looking at dates for next year to go back and enjoy all over again
With A levels finished my son and his group of friends wanted a holiday they could remember , perfect with Sun sand and beach. With a limited budget a Villa to share seemed a good option, and after weeks of research they booked the Crystal Bay Villa !
From the time of the Booking the owner of the villa who is based in the UK was extremely professional and communicated all the necessary information in a timely manner. He was great to deal with and empathetic about the groups needs and was very flexible yet highlighted all the rules.
The boys found the Villa comfortable and very conveniently located for all facilities. All in all it was a memorable holiday.
We had minor disagreement about the security deposit as teh Boys 18 year olds, were not very good at leaving it in as a good a condition as owner expected, but this was resolved amicably !
I would certainly recommend Crystal Bay Villa for a family or group of young adults.
