A sandy cove sets this hotel off nicely and provides the beachfront setting for the à la carte restaurant.
This hotel is in a sandy cove so you’re just steps away from the beach, and there’s a mini-selection of bars and restaurants a few minutes’ walk away. For more sand and added nightlife, Protaras is a 5-minute taxi ride.
The pool scene includes a main pool, an adults-only number, and one for kids. There's also a snack bar. On the subject of food, there’s a buffet restaurant and a smart à la carte place right on the sand. Evening entertainment ranges from quizzes to tribute acts.

I'm going back in August for my 4th visit in 6 years and only missed 2 because went somewhere else to try! This time, I am taking 5 family members with me who have never been to Cyrus before and no better place to start than this hotel! The hotel itself has certainly benefited from the refurbishment with the introduction of the rooms with the swim up pools. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they are friendly and really helpful. I am a really fussy eater but can always find something and kids can have something from the menu cooked if they don't like anything on the buffet. Hotel and outdoor areas are clean and well looked after and the location is fantastic - best to sit outside when eating overlooking the bay right nest to the hotel.More
Hotel good but football teams bad
The standard of the hotel was good with very friendly and attentive staff, with good facilities which include an adult only pool. The animation team offer activities but they are low key and don't hassle you if you don`t want join in. The 2 girls who did the aqua and stretch classes were good fun. The evening entertainment was not for us, it was much too loud. There was a pleasant promenade walk which went all the way to Fig Tree Bay. We found the inside dining area to be noisy so we sat outside and that was fine.The downside of the hotel was that they allowed several children`s football teams to stay and that dramatically changed the place. The youngsters were allowed to run around unrestrained by their coaches/teachers. The hotel staff did their best but had no control over them. We saw children helping themselves to food from the servers, using their fingers!!!! Outside of the last week in April, which is when the football tournament takes place, I would recommend this hotel.More
Love this hotel
This hotel just keeps getting better. Every year things seem to be added all the staff are friendly especially the restaurant where the food is really good. Great for weddings now has its own church. Beautiful views from rooms. Just love this hotel will be there again in June 16. Can't wait.More
Brilliant value, child-safe swim up suite, great location, wonderful staff!
My husband, 2-year old son and I stayed at the Pernera Beach from 17 - 24 April travelling with First Choice. Queue to check in on arrival was rather laboured, due to our entire First Choice coach of 50 people all staying at this hotel. Reception staff were lovely, but couldn't cope with that many people arriving at once - totally not their fault. Once we had checked in, a lovely member of staff showed us to our suite. All other dealings we had with reception during our stay were faultless, with very helpful and knowledgeable reception staff - they even offered to get formula milk for our toddler from the big supermarket in Paramlimni for us. First Choice/Thomson rep - Charlotte I think - was on site frequently and contact details were available for our of hours. We didn't go to the welcome meeting as been to Cyprus many times. We had a swim-up sea view family suite, room 606. It was right on the end of the sea-facing swim up suites, which was great for our toddler as it was right next to the children's play area. It was the best of the sea-facing swim up suites as got more sunlight than the other suites (tip - request this room!). We emailed the hotel prior to booking the swim up suite to ensure that our son wouldn't be able to access the pool; we were assured that the terrace had a locked gate with it's own key. It was exactly as described when we arrived, and once we'd locked the gate we knew our son could play on the terrace safely without being able to access the pool. The suite was well worth the extra money - huge bed, modern bathroom, partition with comfy sofa, and fairly wide terrace/balcony leading onto pool. To summarise the hotel's good and bad points: Good: - Staff are wonderful, genuinely welcoming and will go out of their way to help you. Lots of smiles and polite, attentive service. Can't name everyone unfortunately, but Mario in the restaurant was especially fab. - All inc food is good at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Restaurant settings are nice. Soups and desserts especially impressive on a night. We didn't try the a la carte due to our son being a sod at mealtimes, but everyone we spoke to said it was fantastic. - All inc drinks were pretty good. White wine was drinkable (& I'm fussy) and both Leon and another lager I can't recall met with my husband's approval. - Children were well catered for at each meal time, and at the bar too, with a good selection of soft drinks available. - Rooms and public areas are spotlessly clean. - Pool and lounger areas were clean and tidied every evening - Swim up family suite - worth absolutely every penny! Supremely comfortable, spacious & very relaxing. Pool would be all the more desirable in height of summer. Would just note however that sea-facing pools only get the sun in the morning in April. The hotel was finishing some west-facing pool rooms whilst we were there, and if we went again we'd book one of these instead. - Our pool suite came with super-comfy wooden loungers, a parasol, and the thick fluffy beach towels were changed every day. From talking to other guests these perks were well worth having. - Location - great calm, shallow bay 2 mins walk away; selection of bars and restaurants 5 mins walk away in Pernera. A lot of places were only just opening whilst we were there but we'd love to come back in full season - many of restaurants looked great. - 30-40 mins walk into Protaras, predominantly on coastal path, although note this is not a full boardwalk suitable for buggies/wheelchairs from the Pernera Beach, you have to walk on the road for probably a mile to get to the accessible path. Not so good points: - whilst we were staying there was only one big bar area open on an evening, and the music/entertainment was very loud. We'd have liked to have been able to go to a quieter all inclusive bar area (we had our son asleep in his buggy) where we could have relaxed - this may be available in full season. - our room, whilst fantastic on pretty much every other level, was not brilliantly soundproofed. There was an interconnecting room door and it had a gap underneath - when our neighbours came in it did wake us up, even though they weren't particularly loud. We ended up stuffing a towel under the gap to block out the noise. - the quality of food at mealtimes was good but there wasn't a huge choice - it was better on the weekend when the hotel obviously had more guests staying, but as a veggie I found some of the meal options quite limited. Am sure this would improve in the main season. - This hotel is classed as 'Premier Families' by First Choice - the children's pool is absolutely tiny and even in April it was full with the toddlers staying at the hotel - can't imagine what it'd be like in high season. - Entertainment, including children's disco, was half-hearted and unprofessional. We're not ones for hotel entertainment but if you're going to do it, do it properly! Again would hope this will improve once season kicks off in full. - The hotel provides water from a tap, which you can use to fill your own bottles up. The very first time we did this a load of white lumps came out of the tap (and it wasn't ice!). Totally put us off, but at 3 euros for 6 x 2 litre bottles of water from the supermarket immediately behind the hotel (adjoining the Penelope Hotel Apts) this wasn't a problem. In summary, this is a really really good hotel. We've stayed at the First Choice Holiday Village Aliathon on all inc in Paphos, and Pernera Beach hotel, in terms of staff, location, food and drinks, is far better than that. We've also stayed at the Olympic Lagoon in Ayia Napa; the Pernera Beach isn't as good as that hotel, but nor does it cost the same amount, and probably in value for money terms the Pernera wins hands-down. I don't think you would find better value anywhere, the decor is lovely, staff fantastic, and food/drinks of a high standard. The hotel is a safe and good place to take children, certainly in early season. If you go expecting a good 3-star hotel you will not be disappointed; to us it is not quite 4-star, but we would go again like a shot.More
Book now! fantastic hotel!
Fantastic hotel, more close to a 4/5 star hotel. Its been renovated with a great spa/gym new rooms and reception. Location is great, to the right there is a coastal beach walk about 15k which is beautiful. The beaches are great and can do water sports. The food was fresh, lots of salad/chicken/pork & cocktails were really nice. Staff were very helpful and friendly and great with kids. This hotel is voted 12 in entire Protaras value for money is amazing!More
