I've looked into Cyprus, and besides for the cheap cost using Virgin miles, it seems kinda a bore.
If I just want beaches, I'll stay in Israel.

They are getting their tickets paid for, and they have about 4-5 days. Save Cyprus for another time with cheap 5k virgin miles, and go for 2 days.

.... An important note is that if you're staying at a nice hotel, it will likely be in San Marco Square, which is a GOOD 1/2 hour walk to Shul/Chabad meals. Doable with a kid, but again, something to think about....

We rented an apartment across the street from GamGam when we were there. Nothing too fancy, but very nicely arranged duplex with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and metal keys for Shabbos. If you end up going, feel free to PM me for details.

Thanks! I'll take it into consideration.
I think we'll save Cyprus for a different time :)
