These apartments are in the heart of Protaras, a couple of minutes’ walk from the nearest shops and tavernas. And it’s just a 15-minute walk to Fig Tree Bay, a sandy Blue Flag beach.

Good Self Catering Option in Protaras
Summary - This is a base complex, lovely pool, decent apartments but not where you will be spending most of your evenings though. We travelled here with the kids and the grandparents for 1st week in June, and was a good base for holiday in Protaras. Clean apartments with all the basics you need, and in a good location. Only the poolside toilets let it down (see below). They have good size apartments. The complex is ideally located 5 mins walk from the main strip of bars/shops/restaurants. Just far enough that noise from the strip isnt a problem. Its 8-10 mins from the sea front. (Tip, there is a buggy friendly walkway directly behind the hotel which drops you down to the 'Eden Square' set of restaurants. Walk through that and you are on 'the strip'). The strip runs parallel to the seafront/beach, with the large beach front hotels and bugy friendly promenade inbetween. The complex apartment pools are nice with enough sunbeds and parasols surrounding, both round the pools and on the grass. There are several sets of steps and a built up seating area under the water not instantly visible form above, so need to be cautious that kids aware where there are and don't just jump in (a dangerous design). The toilets for the pool are down steep steps which have no matting and very slippy (they need to address this, its very dangerous, and they are also rundown and need some renovation). Certainly cant yet younger children navigate this themselves. There is a kids club 6 mornings a week (10-noon) for the younger children, with English carers both of whom presented as very professional and I was confident to leave my 4 and 6 year old with them. Kids enjoyed the club. Going into kids club was also welcome relief from the high temperatures also which were 38 degrees on our later days (heatwave), Club is afternoon for the older kids. There is limited daytime entertainment for adults, limited to darts, waterpolo and water zuma repetitive each day. If you want a hotel based holiday with lots going on on the complex this isn't for you. Was also irritating that the gate to the tennis court was always locked, so you couldnt just go for a quick game/play on it. This complex is ideally located however if you want to go and have meals out at the multiple restaurants on the strip (5 mins away), and want that variety. Felt very safe in the town, which was particularly lively over the weekend we were there, even when out with the children / baby in the evening. There's a small fun fair area reasonably prices with carousell and trampoline and mini rolercoasters. Several of the bars / restaurants have kids play areas. We also spotted a crazy gold on the same road as the hotel on our way back to the airport which we didn't know about until then. Re Food. We were very glad we didn't choose the B&B or half board option offered by the Brilliant Apartments as the meals provided by the hotel are essentially served in the seating area by the pool and from what we observed, were not of the same quality or variety as you can get in town, and not ideal having to eat evening meals at the poolbar. That said, I understand that if you had booked half board within that is 3 vouchers per week for some of the selected restaurants in town. Prices similar to UK 10-15 Euro for decent mains. Re Room: We had a one bedroom apartment, and were fortunate to be off to the corner with views out to the see and down to the small children's pool. Some rooms did however overlook the main pool bar area, which some may find too noisy, and there were some rooms which simply overlooked the bin area and next door Lidl store, so were very glad we didn't have these and I did hear people seeking changes in their room which the hotel seemed to be trying to accommodate. Its irritating that the air conditioning turns off when you open the patio door, so you cant have it on and be sat on the balcony without risking locking yourself out there. Lidl is literally next door, handy for getting drinks and replenishing basic supplies for the room. The pool bar prices are high and quality not good. Beer tasted watered down and was around 3.50 Euro, wine tasted very cheap (but wasn't). Noticed that many people if they did but drinks bought cans from the bar given the evident poor quality of the draft. Your not allowed to bring your own drinks to the pool area. We had juice in our own water bottles and had no problems with that. OTHER TIPS - Lots of lotion, its really really hot at present and deceptive with a nice breeze, lots of people burnt. - Airport Tip - if you are taking a buggy they don't come off with the suitcases, but are left at the near end on the baggage collection area for your collection there separately (nice guy alerted us to this whilst we were stood waiting for it to come round, thankyou!). The trollies at the airport take 2 euro coin, which our bus drivers reclaimed for his self-tip when returning your trolly for us. We were told later by the rep that they also take 2 pence pieces. - Rooms - Rooms have electronic keys, don't put them next to your phone as it seems to stop them working. - Trips: We didn't do any trips, except got the bus to Aya Napa one day (which is a vast place so be sure you know which of its beaches or town area you want before you get off the bus!) Bus cost 1.50 Euro each adult. We got a cab back for 15 Euro.More
Average not brilliant
My family and I stayed in this hotel beginning of May and although we really enjoyed our holiday there was a few little things the hotel could of done to make it better. Firstly, I emailed the hotel before the holiday requesting info about accessibility and to make them aware my husband was in a wheelchair. On arrival we were put in a ground floor apartment which was great but my husband could not get in the bathroom in his wheelchair which was an issue we had to overcome ourselves. We went self catering so to find Lidl right opposite the hotel was a bonus. The breakfasts in the hotel were nice as long as you get there early or you get stale toast. The staff in a morning were lovely especially the 2 ladies. Other than Andrew who was very attentive the bar staff on a night didn't seem too bothered, they would put any old cd on and just leave it playing, at one point we were listening to George Michaels last Christmas which my daughter found amusing!! There was also the Greek night buffet with was €12 a head and €6 for children. We decided not to bother as we don't really eat that much. When we went down for a few drinks all the tables were reserved for the buffet and there was no normal menu on which would of been fine if we were told earlier on in the day. The rooms were ok it was just the little things that let it down. The bedroom had massive wardrobes but with no hangers, no remote for the tv, we had no air con for 2 days as it was playing up, no tea towels or cloths, the manager came a week into our stay to hang up black out curtains which was odd. All the electric went off around 10ish one night in half the hotel for around 5 hours and we were left sitting in the reception whilst they were trying to fix it and again the staff didn't seem all that bothered. Protarus was lovely and we would definitely go back, just not to this hotel. More
Great location and good pool and bar area. Nice and relaxed.we had a 2 bed apartment which was perfect.. kitchen/lounge/diner/bunk beds in main room + double bedroom - was perfect for our needs. 5 mins walk from main strip. next door to super market for essentials. Main pool and kids pool both great. Food adequate and service was good.. reception helpful, drinks reasonable (we were half board). One negative was people smoking around pool and in dining area. A few no smoking signs in areas where people eat /children play wouldn't go amiss, although this shouldn't be necessary with a modicum of consideration for others. Overall we all had a great time here!More
This is our 6th visit to Protaras but our first to the Brilliant Apartments. Cannot fault it really, we took our 2 children and stayed self catering. The rooms are spacious but the bathroom is a bit pokey. The pool area is big and there is also a small pool area and play area for younger children. We didn't have a problem getting a bed every morning. We put our youngest into the Thomson kids club each day and she enjoyed it, gives you a couple of hours each day to relax. Our 8yr old had a blast and was kept occupied by the other children staying there. Not far from the strip and the Lidl is next door for supplies. We only had the odd snack during lunch and the food was fine, again no complaints, it was fresh and tasty. There are 2 restaurants on the main road where the Brilliant is, one is called the nameless restaurant, do not be put off by the outside the food is lovely and really well priced. We will definitely be looking to go back here.More
I've just visited the Brilliant apartments in Protras Cyprus,what a brilliant place to stay(excuse the pun). We had a one bed apartment for three of us,it was very spacious and extremely clean. They are located just a short walk from the beach and the nightlife with a lidl next door,perfect for self catering. The staff were extremely helpful and the pool area was very clean and well maintained. I would defiantly go back. More
