Protaras is a family resort and the Marlita Beach apartments complex caters for all family needs. One of the Thomson SuperFamily recommended establishments. Not too busy and only a 5 minute taxi ride from the centre of Protaras.
This is the view from the balcony of the apartment we stayed in (on the top floor). Not a bad view - even if I say so myself! The apartments themselves were spacious and comfortable, with air conditioning for when it is hot.
This is a view of the beach from the pool area of the apartment complex. It is a nice little beach with a bay full of clear water - ideal for snorkelling. The main beach at Protaras is 2 miles to the south.
The swimming pool you can see here and in other photos has since been enlarged and re-landscaped into a better one. I'd like another holiday to find out what it is like now!!!
This is me enjoying the cool water in the pool. On the really hot days it was nice to dive into the refreshing water which was really bracing early in the morning but the sun warmed it up nicely throughout the day.
Another view of the pool at the Marlita apartments. The person looking at me over the back of his sun lounger is my mate Ian who was kind enough to invite me on this holiday. His wife is on the left. They are spending quality time relaxing while their little daughter Alice is attending activities organised by the Thomson holiday reps.
