Brilliant Apartments  

This place has a big lagoon pool and an à la carte 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 à la carte 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.

Excellent base for Protaris

We have just returned from a one week (self catering) stay at the Brilliant Apartments via Thomson holidays and were very happy with our choice. Our top floor (3rd floor) one bedroom apartment was large and bright with a bathroom and large separate bedroom and lounge/kitchenette/dining room containing two sofas which could convert into two single beds. Our balcony looked outwards towards the town. The rooms were simply decorated, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The bathroom overbath shower was quite powerful and there was plenty of hot water. The kitchenette had a good electric hob,microwave, toaster and kettle with an adequate kit of pots, pans , bowls, cutlery etc , and a hair dryer was provided in the bedroom.The maid service was fine and the towels were replaced twice during the week. Air con was included in the price in both living room and bedroom, but the strong box cost an additional €15 for the week. The apartment staff were friendly and courteous with the reception being staffed well into the evening. The apartments are ideally placed for the Protaris "strip" being only a five minute walk from loads of bars, restaurants, shops etc.. A Lidl supermarket is literally over the road and was an excellent source for self catering supplies at reasonable prices. Whilst the swimming pools were excellent with a separate pool for children and loads of sun loungers etc, if you are a beach fan, the excellent Protaris beach is a bit of a walk away on the other side of the strip. Our choice was to eat out each night so other than on the fine poolside snacks, I cannot comment on the food if you opted for B&B or more. The internal dining facilities however did seem a little odd being just a separate area of the reception/bar ( a bit too much like a canteen for my taste). The bar however was excellent and well stocked at standard prices. There was free WiFi available in the reception area but you had to pay if you wanted access in the rooms. All in all, a great place to stay and if we ever return to Protaris I would certainly consider these apartments again.More

A good holiday at the Brilliant

We stayed at the Brilliant again this year and found it to be just right for us. Our room was clean and bright the bed was large and comfortable there was plenty of storage space and the housekeeping service was fine The reception staff is all very good – helpful and professional. We had a couple of minor problems with our room and these were fixed quickly without fuss. We used the restaurant a couple of times and found the food to be ok. The service there was ok too. Can’t comment on the evening entertainment. We plan to stay at the Brilliant again – recommended.More

Another fab stay

We've just returned from a weeks stay at the Brilliant,having stayed before in May this year.We don't normally return to a place so quickly but we were fortunate enough to take a week break and we were so glad that we went back.This time we arranged a taxi transfer which was so much better than travelling by coach and very reasonable at 88 euros return. We traveled as a party of 3 adults and a 3 year old and the hotel met our expectations in almost every way. The staff are so welcoming and friendly,the position of the hotel is ideal,the pool area is absolutely fantastic and we found the food to be reasonably priced and well presented.The kids club,run by Thomson,was absolutely wonderful for our grandson,thanks again Kate and Hannah, and Adam, the Thomson rep,was always friendly and available for most of the time we were there-you're all a great credit to Thomson guys.We were blessed with wonderful weather for the whole of our stay and enjoyed the wonderful beaches in the area which are only a few minutes walk from the hotel.Protaras has loads of good restaurants and we ate at a different restaurant each night,all of them excellent. Protaras itself seemed busier than when we came in May,but there were never any problems in getting sunbeds by the pool and there was only one night of entertainment at the hotel which suited us fine. The one small gripe I do have,which stops me giving this review 5 stars is our room. We were in 305,overlooking Lidl,which wasn't a problem at all,as we had a fab view of the sunrise,but the room itself was quite shabby with paint peeling off the bathroom door and the freezer section of the fridge not working properly. We were able to look at our neighbours room which was in a much better condition than ours but I believe that the rooms are undergoing an on going refurbishment so I guess that we were just unlucky. I would return to the Brilliant in an instant and hope to return next year.More

Excellent stay

My husband and I stayed in this hotel apartments from 5-8 October in a studio apartment. The studio apartment consists of a open plan bedroom, sitting area, kitchenette and separate bathroom. The apartment is furnished in a modern style, and do seem quite new. Our room also had a small balcony, overlooking the swimming pool and a distant sea view. The room was clean and fresh, white crisp linen. The bathroom is very small, but it was fine for the two of us. The bathroom does have a bathtub with a shower in the tub, all nice and modern. The kitchenette was well equipped, and modern with fridge, microwave and small stove top. Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. Wifi was free, but only in the lobby area, but it was not a problem. All units do have aircon. Breakfast was included in our rate. The breakfast is not buffet, but you order what you want from a menu, and the staff serve you. Staff overall, from reception to restaurant area were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated perfectly. Only a few meters walk from the nice busy strip of restaurants and shops, and most beautiful beaches. Although it only takes you a few minutes to walk to the strip with restaurants and shops, it is nice and quiet at the hotel self, which is a huge plus if you come home at night, and know you can have a pleasant peaceful night rest. About 10km from Protaras is Aiga Napa, a busy bigger town. We went there by rental, but I am sure there might be a bus service to take you there. We enjoyed the beautiful beach of Nissi here, a must see. Will definitely stay here again.More
