Brilliant Apartments  

This place has a big lagoon pool and an international restaurant. Plus, there’s plenty here for children.

This place has a pair of pools. One’s a huge lagoon number with a Jacuzzi®, while the other’s a shallow pool just for children. There’s also an international restaurant with a spacious sea-view terrace.

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.

One word....Brilliant!!!

Just back after spending a fabulous week here and wish i was still there! This was my 5th time to Protaras but my 1st time staying here. I have to say this has been the best accommodation yet and we will be going back for sure. Arrived late evening on 10th May and checked in with no problems. i did request a specific room via Thomson but this was unavailable - note to others - email the hotel prior to arrival as they will do their best to accommodate your requests, they also don't always see requests made via your booking... Accommodation We were allocated room 106 which was overlooking the pool and restaurant. This room has twin beds rather than the larger beds you hear about in other reviews - not really a problem for us and were very comfy. Air conditioning provided in main room and bedroom and were controlled via a unit in each room. Bathroom is ample size with a shower (quite powerful) over the bath - no bath plug though a deodorant lid made a good alternative! Good kitchen storage space and an under counter fridge too. Only down side is that the balcony was a bit small for a family but would be enough room if only 2 of you. Location The brilliant is situated opposite Lidl and a quick walk through eden square will find you on the strip. Alternatively you can walk along the main road to either end of the strip or if you want to avoid the hill by eden square take a left out of the hotel by Lidl and rather than walk through eden square follow the road around and it brings you further down the strip. Food We booked self catering as there are so many bars/restaurants to try in resort. We did eat in the hotel once or twice in the daytime and can't complain about any of the food or drinks we had - milk shakes in particular were quite nice as made with ice-cream and milk! Staff here are also very friendly. Entertainment Due to going so early in the season there was only one night with entertainment which was a parrot show - literally lasted 15 mins but my daughter enjoyed it. Judging by the signs up as we were leaving the entertainment only really started this week so should be fine from now onwards. Thomson kids club I have to give a special credit to the 2 girls doing kids club - in particular Steph who we found to be more than helpful and was brilliant with my 3 year old. Sadly Steph has been moved to the family resort in Ayia Napa but Micheala will still be there who is also very good. My daughter enjoyed this and we had no problems other than her being sick once!!! This was dealt with by the girls with no problems. Resort Plenty of good food and drink about. My favourites were Georgio steak house and hippo campo. Hippo campo was a firm favourite with my daughter due to the park out the back but has good food and friendly staff. Plenty of shops about ranging from drinks to smellies and gifts. Also at least 2 pharmacies on the main strip. Beach is great but head to fig tree bay as this in particular is stunning though can get very busy in peak season. Cant really think of much else but will try and answer any questions if i can :-) If you book here you will definitely not be disappointedMore



Just got back from this hotel 24th May, stayed 7 nights, wished it was longer. As the name says, great location and very clean with large moden rooms, friendly staff, you would be hard pressed to pick a fault with this hotel and this was also the view of other's staying at this hotel.We stayed self catering one bed apartment with was extremely spacious and the bonus is there's a Lidl over the road for all your needs. A short walk down to the strip or fig tree bay, were you'll find aboundance restruants and bars which are all child friendly. There is of course a wide choice of hotels in Protarus but this one ticked all our boxes at a great price with Thompson. I've been all over the place and this was my first visit to Cyprus and can't wait to return, I don't think you'll be disappointed.Also made some good friends, it's Yorkshire thing.More


First family holiday abroad with thomsons&brilliant hotel protaras Cyprus.

We booked this holiday at the last minute through Barrhead travel& flew with thomsons on 10/5-17/5. We arrived at the hotel&receptionist asked us if we had been here before&told her no&she took our passports from us&gave us our room keys&pointed over to the side in which we found our way&when we got the room our keys didn't work so went back to reception to advise only to be told that they should work&eventually after arguing with her for at least 10 mins she reset the cards&slammed them on the desk&I walked away from there to the room&it was the older lady with glasses and brown hair. The apartment was lovely&clean&also we had requested a travel cot&we got one&once we had unpacked we walked across the road to lidl for shopping&once we unpacked that we went a walk around the pool&hotel. We had a welcome meeting on the Monday which was good because Danielle explained a lot of things that should have been done by the receptionist the night before which it wasn't. We had taken a walk down to the Main Street and we came back to the hotel&was greeted by Tracey the receptionist who was lovely&welcoming&i think that is how it should be&she also asked if everything was ok with our room&if there was anything just to let her know&we actually had to tell her when he got back to the room to say that the toilet wasn't working and said she would get right on it for us&it was fixed straight away which was good&that's what you call excellent customer service. We were told that they would have wifi but they only downside of that is making calls home had to be in the lobby because that was only place that had wifi which was quite good in some bits¬ so good in others. We did ask the receptionist what the entertainment was like& she said look at the board which to me was very rude&was the lady with blonde hair&never spoke to until the last day of our holiday&we have the keys back to her&she asked if we had our passports&explained that they were taking off us last Sunday&she that we had our passports&then she went to the back&came back laughing which I didn't think it was funny but Danielle the rep was fantastic. The children's pool could have been heated as it was very cold&could only stay in for max ten mins as our child was only 2&she was getting shivery&she played in the play park which was good as there was a chute but only thing they don't have baby swing but hey you can't have everything&there is sign saying no drinks to be brought to the poolside if not bought in the bar areas which I think ia rude because our child is still on milk&hi was drinking frozen water as its was hot the days we were at the pool. We would return to the hotel as was good&they also had parent&toddler sessions which was good because our child was too young for kids club&girls where fabulous as well. My husband&I drank in the hotel bar which we found was quite expensive for a pint and a soft drink But otherwise that the apartment was great&bar staff were great as well. So we would recommend it as it wasn't that busy either which was good&if all the staff would be like Tracey then it would have been better as she has excellent customer service skills which could be passed onto some of the staff.

Had an amazing time!

Visited for the second time during May 2015. Since our last visit the apartments have been refurbished and look great - the beds are huge!! Staff were friendly and the pool and facilities were kept clean at all times. It's in a great location for exploring - two minute walk from the main strip and 5 minutes from the beach. Will definitely visit again. More


Brilliant yes

Stayed in the brilliant aptments 1st week of may for 7 nights. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, loverly pool as there was only a couple rooms booked out is was very quiet but nice. We stayed on the top floor and had early evening sunshine which was great. Very nice room with separate bedroom. All in all I would recommend this hotel and will be going again. 5 minutes walk from protaras strip with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. More
