We stayed in the Capo Bay Hotel for two weeks for our wedding and honeymoon at the start of October.
Having visited the resort in April 2012 to view all the top hotels in the area, we decided to book the Capo Bay after meeting their wedding coordinator and PR manager, Katerina Soulioti Zarballa.
She was more than helpful in the run up to the wedding and helped us find our photographer, Lefteris Katsantonis, who was excellent.
Due to our Thomas Cook flight being delayed by four hours, we arrived at the hotel at 3.30am but were still given a warm welcome and a free drink on arrival.
Our superior seaview room was stylish and modern with a king-size bed. Our only quibble is that we missed out on a complimentary room upgrade due to the hotel being full for the duration of our stay.
This became clear to us the first morning when we arrived for breakfast. The service was extremely busy but there was lots of staff on. The choice for breakfast was immense – even champagne if you fancied some!
The pool areas were very well maintained and being able to choose your sun beds for the duration of your stay is a great idea.
Prior to the wedding day, we had a number of meals in restaurants on the strip. This was our third visit to Protaras, so we already had our favourites.
However, the Georgia and the Anatolia were not as good as before. Promises and Diva flambé restaurant were excellent. Ripples and Rockefellers remain the two best bars on the strip.
For our afterparty, we enjoyed a traditional Cypriot night and BBQ at the Sweet Memories apartments, were some of our guests were staying.
On the wedding day itself, our guests enjoyed a cocktail reception when we returned from the ceremony in the Terra Santa Church in Larnaca.
When we returned from having our sunset photos taken, we made our way to the terrace part of the main restaurant for our meal.
We choose the Carvery Buffet menu and George make sure we all had plenty of wine with our meal!
The food itself was something else. Everything was cooked to perfection and there was so much choice. All our guests commented on the quality of the food and every guest went up for second helpings!
After our meal we retired to the Koi bar for the evening entertainment and our first dance. The atmosphere here was very relaxed and was the perfect end to the perfect day.
The morning after the wedding, we were treated to breakfast in bed and we were given a free meal in the Koi bar on one of the night. As expected, the meal was first class.
While the Capo Bay enjoys an excellent location just off the main strip and overlooked the beautiful Fig Tree Bay, the staff are what makes this hotel so special.
I honestly don’t think one single member of staff walked past us without saying hello/hi the entire two weeks we were there.
We would certainly recommend the hotel for wedding as Katerina is a joy to deal with and is very professional in her job. We were able to relax completely as we knew she had everything under control.
We look forward to returning to this wonderful hotel – hopefully sometime soon!
