Brilliant family holiday for adults, small children and teenagers alike!
We had a very stressful lead up to this holiday (passport applications arriving days before hand and other problems) and did begin to wonder if any holiday could make up for the stress involved getting here.
However, within a minute of hitting the pool on day one, with two very excited 6 and 8 year olds, plus a 13yr old and a 15 yr old, all my doubts fell away. We had fun from start to finish every day. This is a clean and beautiful resort set against an uninterrupted view of the beach and ocean with plenty of room for holiday makers to find space to themselves.
The local cuisine at the hotel was delicious but there was a wide variety for everyone to enjoy. My 8 year old loved the buffet and said he would miss it terribly! Our one bed apartment was very spacious with black out blinds although the beds were slightly hard but we did get used to them. We couldn't hear any noise from any other rooms or the hotel in general below. We made the most of the entertainment. Matthew, the activity organiser, was very hands on and made all activities from Aquaerobics to the bingo and children's dancing a giggle for everyone that chose to get involved. Our only thought was that the kids' entertainment could have started earlier to make room for more adult entertainment later.
We only visited local places that we could actually walk to and with two children and two teenagers opting to simply enjoy the hotel and all it had to offer from the games room to the kids club and playground and to the wide choice of watersports we were comfortable taking it easy and doing much the same.
Highly recommend this resort and we have already booked for next year!

Great 2 week holiday in Cyprus
The area the hotel is situated is brilliant if you want a quiet relaxing holiday. A small strip of bars and some excellent restaurants. It is as it says on the beach with a great walk along the front right up though Protaras centre and fig tree bay with various little bars on the way. The centre of Protaras is about 8 Euro in a taxi which is a lot busier. If you want lively then this isnt the place for you! Its about 20 Euro in a taxi to ayia napa. The blue spice resaurant right outside the hotel is excellent where we spent a lot of the time. Would 100% return and plan too in the future.

great family holiday, wonderful water park and pools and accomodation.
Fantastic holiday! Tsokkos Marlita Beach in Cyprus. Thomas Cook staff were brilliant and we felt really well looked after from take off to landing back in England. Entertainment staff were great fun and full of energy. Hotel was lovely, very spacious, fab air conditioning, comfortable and very clean. Pools were lovely and the waterpark at the next door sister hotel was great fun.
Food was lovely, our only critisism is there were few main meals for vegetarians.
Extra credit to the entertainment staff and the flight staff, excellent.

overall excellent service from thomas cook reps and tsokkos hotels
booked self catering but halfway through holiday asked to move from the marlita beach hotel cyprus to another hotel as hotel had overbooked.however we agreed to move to another hotel and were upgraded to all inclusive for both hotels.we were given a self catering room in the tsokkos gardens so we had the best of both worlds
as far as the all inclusive was concerned the food and choice was excellent,the staff were very friendly and helpful
almost convinced to go all inclusive next time but still enjoy the extra space and facilities of self catering

Weather great, location also, reception staff need hospitality training
We had a terrific holiday as Cypriots in general epitomise hospitality and friendliness, unfortunately, this attitude has not filtered through to the Reception at Marlita Beach who really need to up their game. As previously indicated we go there for its closeness to the sea and good pool area. The apartments need an upgrade although the cleaning staff this year could not be faulted.

Great time at the Tsokkos Marlita Beach Hotel
Holidayed at the Marlita Beach Hotel and had a very good time. I was a bit concerned because it was a last minute arrangement and we were staying in a studio apartment, but found it was very roomy and fine for the two of us.
The resort itself was handy for all amenities and is right on the sea front.
We used the pool daily but did not use the facilities at night. As we were self catering we chose to eat and drink in the town, where the restaurants were ample for our requirements and reasonably priced. There are supermarkets close by and also a bakers which does a great selection of fresh rolls and cakes, which was great for lunch / snacks.
The only negative, and it is a very minor one, is that the room was not particularly well equipped and I needed to buy a mug for a decent cup of coffee.

Just come back after 2 weeks in Marlita Beach, lucky enough to have one of the houses facing the sea, fantastic location, and looks fantastic from the outside, we stayed in room S01, needs modernising, paper coming off wall, rusty camp beds, kitchen area falling to bits, bathroom needs upgrade, stayed self catering not enough equipment to make meals etc. Pool and facilities need more maintaining.Wi-Fi 4 euros for an hour disgusting!
