Description from owner

Description

The Great Kings is located in Kapparis, locally accepted as the "up and coming" area on the eastern side of the island. Kapparis is home to two stunning beaches, most notably "Firemans beach" which is either a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the complex. Although Kapparis is traditionally quieter than its neighbouring tourist hotspots, guests will still easily be able to sample abit of both with Protaras (5 minutes) and Ayia Napa only a 10 minute drive from the complex.

The focal point for the complex is the large pool area comprising of a large swimming pool and smaller children's paddling pool. The area is bathed in sunshine from dawn "till" dusk. The complex benefits from the use of an on-site tennis court for guests who wish to remain active! Guests will also have full use of a communal sun terrace which overlooks the pool area.

The Famagusta District

The Famagusta district located on the eastern side of the island, is host to some stunning locations and arguably the most beautiful beaches in Cyprus. Towns such as Paralimni, Ayai Napa, Kapparis, and Protaras are all close by. The island of Cyprus enjoys on average over 300 days of sunshine per year. Temperatures are warm throughout, with averages in the summer above 30 degrees and 18 degrees in the winter. The sea temperatures remain warm from May until late October.

Protaras

Kapparis is locally accepted as the new "up and coming" area in the Famagusta district. A number of bars and restaurants now line the main street. Most notibly "Faliros" which serves local cuisine. Several small supermarkets and bakeries are also located on the main street. Further amenities include a launderette and internet cafe. The beaches in Kapparis are beautiful, with "firemans beach" and "Ayia Triada" being my personal favourites. Nearby guests will be able to visit Ayia Napa and Protaras where there a more stunning beaches to be explored, the best known being "fig tree bay" in Protaras and "Nissi bay" in Ayia Napa. Konnos bay is located between the two towns and is arguably the best beach on the island and an absolute "must see". A marina and award winning water park are also very close by.

“Well equipped apartment”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2014

We spent just four days at the Great Kings whilst visiting family, the apartment was clean and modern and we had a very comfortable stay. The apartment is well equipped with every comfort thought of, including a hairdryer which was great as I couldn't get mine in my 'hand luggage only' trip. Great Kings complex is well serviced with really lovely pool, bar/café, amenities for kids and general view TV. My only negative comment is the distance to walk anywhere. It takes about 20 minutes to the main street in Kapparis with a further 10 minutes to the beach. I would recommend use of a car to families renting this apartment.

“Family Holiday - Revisiting the Protaras area”

Reviewed 28 May 2014

I'd like to thank Steven for all the help and great information supplied when booking his apartment for what was our second visit to this region of Cyprus. With our first stay being in the Fig Tree Bay beach front hotel we were married in - we wanted to stay within a short drives distance whilst having a little more privacy and flexibility that an apartment / villa would allow. The apartment ticked every box and allowed us to enjoy every second. Excellently equipped and conveniently located (just off of the main road through Kapparis), it gave us an excellent base to start each day. I'd happily recommend the apartment and area to any friends or family travelling to this region of Cyprus - I'm keen to revisit myself again soon!

“Great holiday”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2013

This apartment has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. I had recently been I'll and needed a quiet place to stay this was perfect,close enough to night life but still peaceful at night. The apartment is spotless clean and the people who take care of it are very helpful. Have already booked to go back.

“Immaculate, excellent value apartment”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

We stayed here for a week over New Year and were very happy with the apartment. It was immaculately clean, spacious and very well equipped. We were very impressed with everything provided, particularly as the price was so good. The apartment complex is a short drive from the main resorts of Protaras and Ayia Napa. We drove all over the island, as it's small enough that you can go anwhere - even Paphos on the opposite side - as a day trip. The location of the apartment gives easy access to the motorway towards Larnaca and from there to Nicosia, Limassol, Troodos and Paphos. The apartment is also just a few miles from one of the border crossing points via which you can visit North Cyprus, if that interests you (head through Paralimni, Deryneia and Frenaros towards Agios Nikolaos crossing point). We found the old town of Famagusta and the ruins of the ancient city Salamis to be well worth a visit. It was very quiet at this time of year, with very few residents on the complex, although it appeared that a small number of locals lived in the apartments year-round. We used the tennis court once but could probably have played all day everyday as we didn't see anyone else using it. It was a nice touch to have the rackets and balls provided in the apartment. The pool looked nice but we didn't want to brave the cool water although the weather was pleasantly warm and sunny - but then we are not really into sunbathing anyway. Even at this time of year there were a few restaurants and bars open within walking distance in Kennedy Avenue, Kapparis - we liked Karas Tavern. The only real disadvantage we found was that the complex was very dark at night. I imagine this was partly because there were not many people staying here at this time of year. This made it hard to find our parking space and apartment, particularly on the first night when we arrived. There are lights in the parking area, and some of these seemed to be motion-sensitive and come on when we were nearby, but it was very hit-and-miss as to whether the ones we actually walked/drove under came on! Similarly walking from the parking space down the side of the apartment block to the entrance was very dark. Other than that we were very happy and would certainly stay here again if we come back to Cyprus.

“Makes a refreshing change from hotels.”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2012

1st thing is hire a car. You need a car if you're staying here. Steve who owns this apartment gave us all the info' we needed and explicit directions from the airport which took us straight there. On arrival 1st impression were great. Very clean and comfortable. Instructions available on how to work things and maps etc of where to go, places to see. Kitchen well equipped. Lovely bathroom. Bed comfortable. The complex is well equipped with pool and tennis courts. Steve has left tennis racquets for your use. Location of this appartment is just a short walk from the bars, restaurants and beaches. The great thing about this place is that it is peaceful. If you want to be in a noisy hotel with drunk people and screaming kids then this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a place to stay with independence from the crowds and holiday companies then this is the place for you. I would definitely stay there again.

Thank you very much for choosing to stay in my apartment and for taking the time to complete a review. Your comments are really appreciated and valued. I hope to hear from you again in the not too distant future!

“Very well presented accommodation in a great complex”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2012

We stayed in October 2012 which was our second trip to this apartment, having previously stayed in October 2010. Once again, we were not dissapointed with a very smart apartment with a quiet swimming pool and tennis court right on your doorstep. The whole complex is immaculate and very well maintained. On this occasion we visited with another couple and the apartment is large enough to accommodate four adults quite comfortably. The booking process was extremely easy and the apartment is great value. I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to anybody looking for a relaxed holiday with stunning beaches only a few minutes drive away. I can't think of a better place to visit so late in the year where the locals are friendly, the weather is so consistent and the sea is warm!

Thank you very much for choosing to stay in my apartment and for taking the time to complete a review. Your comments are genuinely appreciated and valued. I hope to hear from you again in the not too distant future!

“Nice apartment, great complex, fantastic pool.”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

Arrival: Apart from knowing where the complexe is through knowing the area from many previous visits, finding the apartment and parking space proved more difficult. Better directions and instructions would have been helpful. The stay: A very nice apartment. Clean, well looked after and the complexe is known as the best in the area. A great pool, but you need to get around it early at weekends, as many Cypriots have weekend homes on the complexe. The beaches in the area are fantastic. The closest being a few minutes drive away. Watersports are very good in the area as is snorkling. Overall: One of the best holidays we've had in Cyprus.

I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Great Kings. Clear directions to the complex can be found on my personal website which is accessible via the link on the "contact" tab (I am unable to post URL's in response to reviews!) I would like to thankyou for taking the time to write a review, it is genuinely appreciated. I hope to hear from you again in the near future.

“Lovely Apartment”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the apartment but dont think we would we would return.We had trouble a couple of days getting out of the parking space due to ignorant people parking in the lanes meant for entry and exit.Especially at the weekend. 2. Pool was very busy with locals and full of teenagers running round and making noise during the weekend. We wouldn't stay there again in the summer as the distance is to far away from the restaurants. We walked on a couple of occasions but it was just to hot and humid and as we live in the middle east you would think we would be used to that sort of weather. But if we decided to go back in the winter we would consider staying there.

Thankyou very much for taking the time to review my property. I am dissapointed to hear about the comments regarding the car parking issues, I will be raising this as a matter of urgency to ensure it does not happen again. The bars/restaurants etc are located within a 15 minute stroll of the complex as described in the advert, Given the unseasonably hot weather this summer (upto to 46 degrees!) I appreciate this may have caused some issues, but this is the first complaint of this nature I have received. Personally I enjoy the walk to the center of the village and have had several previous guests comment the same. The Pool area does get busy during the summer months but this is to be expected during this time and is common in all hotels throughout the busy months of the year. That said, there are plenty of sun loungers and umbrella's to go around and the area surrounding the pool is very generous so it is always easy to find space. Thankyou once again for choosing to stay in my apartment, I hope to hear from you in the near future.

“Great apartment, great pool, great tennis court - GREAT STAY”

Reviewed 4 Jun 2012

Great apartmernt at the Great Kings Resort. Apartment was fantastic with everything that you needed. Good time of year for us to go, pool area was large and clean unlike some of the other apartments we have stayed at, not crowded and had the sun all day. Tennis court was available any time of the day with own key and equipment. Hoping to be back next year.

Thankyou for taking the time to review your stay. I'm delighted you enjoyed yourselves. I hope to hear from you again in the not too distant future.

“Only thing to complain about is having to return home!”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

What a wonderful holiday my partner and I have just had. We stayed at Steves apartment for two weeks in April. The weather was mainly perfect with a few days of cloud/rain (when it rains....it rains :-) The apartment was one of the best places I have stayed in. It was clean, well equipped and the complex itself was lovely. The pool looked stunning although was a little cold in April for my liking! so only managed to dip my feet in. I last stayed in Kapparis in 2009 and since then there has been a major improvement in public transport which was nearly non existent back then. There is now a regular bus route running through the village and the stop is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment. This takes you through Protatas and Ayia Napa. We made use of a hire car and this made travelling much easier although with the new bus routes this may not be strictly needed. The complex is a short walk to the main village of Kapparis where there are some lovely places to eat. We ate at Faliros and Folio, both of which were faultless. My only small gripe was the kiosk which was closed during our stay but this didn't really effect us too much as we spent alot of the time on the beaches! Steve has been a pleasure to deal with and the damage deposit (£100) was returned to me 4 days after we got back. Would certainly recommend Cyprus and Steve's apartment to anybody.

Thankyou very much for your kind comments and taking the time to write a review, I'm delighted you enjoyed your holiday and hope that you decide to stay again in the near future.
