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.

2nd Visit.

We as a Family of four, Golden Oldie Parents & two grown up Daughters, found the Brilliant to be just that again Brilliant. All staff are extremely friendly & cannot do enough for you, I was the one with the dodgy foot & ankle which limited what excursions we could do, although we did manage out once each time to our favourite restaurants, which were Yiannia Marie, Molti`s & Mousakis in Soutira which were a ll a joy to visit & prices for 3 spirits, 1 cocktail & 4 soft drinks with main meals costing between 53 Euros & 56 Euros, after previous experience at these premises we knew we could not justify either two or three courses. Plenty of storage space in apartments we had 303 which was great pleanty of room to move about. Plenty of sun beds no matter what time of day. We had lots of snacks & soft drinks at pool bar which were delicious, again staff vey friendly. As for towels not being changed we have never had a problem with this, just put dirty towels in bath & they will be changed ! Housekeeping are fantastic & work so hard, every member of staff are a credit to The Sunrise Group. Staff are always smiling & happy, even though they work hard in hot weather.More

Very clean and Friendly

Been a holiday maker at the Brilliant Hotel for years now and I can say that I always enjoy it year after year. Very friendly staff, good food and very clean Good for Families with good facilities and not too far from the main town area which means the noise levels at night are low making for a good night stay Rooms are all fitted with large flatscreen tvs and nice comfy beds Would highly recommendMore

Excellent family hotel - value for money

We are a family of four (children 6yrs and 3yrs) and have just returned from a ten day stay at the Brilliant. We asked for a ground floor room with a pool view and we were not disappointed - room 19 was ten paces from the pool and loungers opposite the bar area - perfect for us. The hotel was clean and well presented, we arrived at night and found the sofa beds made up ready for us to sleep straight away . We had a one bedroom apartment - it was huge with a super king sized bed and two good sized sofa beds. Plenty of storage and hangers, air con and excellent kitchen facilities as well as a hairdryer in the bedroom. The balcony was huge with airing rail for wet clothes - all plug sockets are three pin so no need for adapters. The pool area was clean and had plenty of loungers (off peak perk !), the rep Adam was friendly and always around. The hotel is a five minute walk to the strip and about ten minutes to fig tree bay. There is a lidl opposite which is perfect for s/catering. We came for a wedding and family members who were staying in other hotels commented on how lovely our pool and apartment were compared to theirs. An excellent holiday we will definitely be back. The staff were friendly and accommodating - big thanks to monika the pool entertainer for the aqua zumba which my daughter loved. The house keeping staff came daily and gave an excellent service.More


Very clean, cheap drinks, great pool

This is a really good value for money hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. We booked very late so ended up with a room facing the road but this wasn't a problem at all as you couldn't hear any traffic from inside. We had a studio apartment and it was massive with a huge and very comfortable bed. The room was very very clean as was the hotel in general. The pool is very big and very clean, I loved spending time in it. There were plenty of sun beds to go around. Monika the pool entertainer was very friendly and fun but not too pushy which everyone appreciated. She would run darts competitions, quizzes, water volleyball and aqua aerobics - all very relaxed and informal. The swim up pool bar was excellent, and all of the bar staff were very friendly and efficient and the drinks at the hotel were so cheap! We went for bed and breakfast and although the selection isn't huge I enjoyed my full English everyday. The service was always quick and friendly. What I liked about it most is that it was very relaxed. You would order at your table and they would bring it out to you which I much prefer to the mayhem of a buffet. And also breakfast is on until 11.30 which was ideal for me! We didn't have any other meals at the hotel, I wouldn't say the hotel prides itself on its culinary expertise and the restaurant isn't in any way posh. Regarding location, most of the other hotels are located just off the main strip so they have the benefit of being right on the beach. However, the strip is very lively and noisy at night so Brilliant has the advantage of being just far enough out of the way that the noise from the bars doesn't reach it. Plus it's only a 5 minute walk to the main strip of bars and restaurants and an 8 minute walk to the beach so pretty ideal. Protaras is a lively resort. It hasn't got the culture of paphos and is slightly more 'Brits abroad' with all of the pubs and bars on the strip. However you can still find plenty of traditional Greek restaurants. The beaches are really nice and the sea is beautiful and clear. And as always in Cyprus the people were very friendly. I would highly recommend this value for money hotel and Protaras as a resort.More

Just returned from our first visit to Cyprus staying at the Brilliant apartment hotel.First impressions were very good the rooms were very large very clean and very comfortable and were kept that way all week by a superb set of cleaners.Hotel is only 5 minutes from bars and restaurants and only 10 minutes slow walk to beach and fig tree bay for those on a self catering basis a Lidl supermarket right next to the hotel with a good range of products ( buy your water here a lot cheaper than the hotel )Reception staff could not have been friendlier they always had a smile and a good morning, good evening and were very approachable.The main staff around the restaurant and pool area were mainly ok a couple were not the best some days and it showed as there approach was not the best especially at the pool bar where one member behind the bar was more interested in talking to her friend behind the counter slowing the service down and she seemed not to like the fact that her friend should attend the customer instead of listening and talking to her. Overall the hotel is excellent however there are a couple of points that we did not think were right we booked bed and breakfast and paid for the service within the UK expecting a choice of maybe a small buffet style breakfast with standard food like bacon eggs sausage etc or bread and pastry products even fresh fruit this was not the case you had a very limited choice and if you wanted the slightly bigger breakfast you were asked to pay an extra 2 euros even though we had already paid for the meals upfront any trips you may book all started before the restaurant opened so the hotel clicked anyway as you had to provide your own breakfast those days. We did hear from other guests that the evening meals were poor as well however cannot confirm this as we ate down in the fantastic restaurants on the strip that were only 5 minutes away and a lot cheaper serving fantastic fish dishes and T bone dishes all for around £15 euros a head including an alcohol drink ( ADVISE MOLTI restaurant superb service, fantastic food advise AGAINST Marcello's italian restaurant on same side of road plenty food just totally tastless and service very very poor, food basically thrown at you ) the other point i have to make is that the hotel although great for families during the day as it had a superb very clean pool and plenty of sunbeds the evening entertainment left a lot to be described very poor a parrot show for 15 minutes, a Rod Stewart night that you had to pay for extra even though you could see his show for free most nights on the strip in the bars. Please do not be put off by comments the actual hotel is very good however i would advise if you are going to stay only book self catering only as you can buy your breakfast outside much cheaper which are bigger and better as well as your evening meals plus the evening entertainment is much better down in the bars on the strip 5 minutes away.More
