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, one for kids, and 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 have stayed at this hotel twice before but it is over ten years since I last visited this hotel with my family. The hotel has been updated since then and the rooms have been modernised. The hotel has also become part of the First Choice All Inclusive which worked out well when you are with a group of people as there is no hassle with money and turns at the bar etc! Our welcome was good very quick and efficient. After a couple of days into the holiday we were given a couple of small bottles of wine and a plate of dried fruit and nuts as complimentary from the hotel. This was a nice gesture but I think it would have been much better to provide water in the little fridge in the room. This is so basic but essential given that you are recommended not to drink their tap water. Bottles of water at the bar were 2.50Euro each. The air conditioning was not very efficient, we were not able to reduce the temperature to cool enough therefore it was quite warm in the rooms. Food at the hotel was good, quite a good selection and not too big so that you were in a dilemma as to what to chose. One thing that I didn't like was that people chose to smoke cigarettes in the outdoor eating area at breakfast time. One of the pleasures of being on holiday is to be able to eat outdoors, its a shame it is spoilt by those who blow smoke over others sat nearby. Pool area was clean but I must say the sunbeds were so uncomfortable. No way could anyone have sampled the beds before purchasing in bulk for the hotel. The metal bar underneath dug into your back and there was a gap that your towel kept on falling through. The ones on the beach were much more comfortable but had to be paid for. The pool is not accessible for people with disability as had two of my family members. Hopefully this is part of the hotels planned renovations over the winter months. The pool definitely needs easy access for those who can't walk very well. Steps/slope with a handrail is a must. The steps to the beach are also unsafe. We saw a few people trip on the cobbled stones that were covered with sand which made them slippy. Think these would have been better if there were more steps but they were level. The evening entertainment was ok, the usual bingo session and there was a quiz which was quite good. I loved the parrot show even though I have seen similar in other places. The bar staff were brilliant - service with a smile and the drink quality was good too. (thank you!) All in all this was a great holiday and will definitely visit again and hopefully not in another 10 years time.More

Crafty week away
We have just returned from this hotel and what a lovely time we had. This hotel is really nice. We had a lovely room with a fantastic view overlooking the pool and the sea 223. The room was spotless and the beds quite comfortable. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels. The room safe was free to use. If I had one complaint it was that the air con was not great but because it was cooler of a night we could leave the doors open and this made up for it. The pool area was clean and there were plenty of sun beds but this did not stop other guests reserving the beds that caught the sun all day. There is a large grassed area with beds and a smaller section down the steps overlooking the beach and so there was no need to get up at the crack of dawn to put towels down. Pool towels were available. The pool bar was very concenvient and served snacks. The food in the hotel was good with a good choice of salads, meats and fish. Sitting outside overlooking the bay while eating was wonderful. Breakfast was in a seperate room and there was lots of choice for everyone. There was entertainment most nights and the bits we caught were good but we like to walk out of a night time. The hotel itself overlooks the beach to one side with steps leading down. We went to the beach most days and were charged 7.5 euros for 2 beds and a parasol. In the immediate area there are bars, resturants and shops. You can also walk along the promenade which takes you right into Protaras and the strip. We also took a walk along the other side which lead to a lovely Greek church. We went to the light show in Protaras which was okay. We also went out on a catamran which was great. There is a good bus service just up the road from the hotel which takes you into Protaras and Ayia Napa in no time. All in all I would have scored excellent for this hotel but the only let down was the air con. However, the location, friendliness of staff and overall felling of wellbeing will have us returning to this hotel again.More

Another Great Time
Another great time had Weather great Hotel great Staff absolutely wonderful Animation team work so hard Thank you to everyone at the pernera our stay was just great pity we did not get the room that we wanted 384 we had 382 still great view . Booking in quick fast and efficient pity old boy spent his first two hours in the lift going up and down til found the right floor he was so funny . Nice touch with dried fruits and nuts also the wine as we were returning guests thank you . Had a free meal in the a la carte dont have the cook your own hot stone grill this should be removed from the menu good idea not good in practice . Again the food in the restaurant was wonderful loads to choose from you cant go wrong . We do understand that this winter there are going to be some new developments and additions to the hotel and we are looking forward to this we do hope they get new sunbeds as they are quite uncomfortable indeed . We are getting MARRIED there next year (Sept 2015) and looking very forward to our return . Thank you again PerneraMore

great value, lovely hotel
Firsly I have to say please ignore the poor reviews, from the moment we arrived we where greeted with a lovely welcome by 3 members of staff all english speaking so check in was easy, room as we had asked for high floor(only 4 floors high)lovely big bed although rather firm but thats ok for us, free safe, modern new looking fitments, tv good selection of channels as cyprus wasc2 hrs infront we did see a bit of fav programs when we went to bed, fridge also a plus.Bathroom probably ready for some tlc but very clean, towels changed every day, so room for us perfect, the security doors I found really up to date, scan card that you use for lift and room door buzzes if not closed properly, aircon very good, patio door also very modern, small balcony, we had a sea room which was lovely but the side sea views will actually look over the beach as that is too the side whereas infront is the rocky area, also the side view rooms will get the aft.sun n sunsets especially at this time of year(oct) when the sun went off the pool area around 3,4 oclock. The beach just to the side is beautiful, clear water and gentle slope in very calm being a cove so great for kids.Next , food, well all I can say is I read lots of bad reviews but you have hot, good choices, lots of veg, salads, rice, pasta dishes, gorgeous pizzas, deserts, well, we have been in 5stars that didnt have the choice here has , even, wait for it , a hot pud n real vanilla custard my husband couldnt beleive it when he saw apple crumble ! So honestly go to this lovely hotel, the position for walks into Protaras is just right as the beach there was narrow and crowded so we are so glad we chose Pernera, and go up into pernera its only a 2 min stroll some good bars for if you fancy a change, The Ranch has acts on at 10 every night. The staff in the hotel are sll lovely the entertainment girls do a great job coming round during the day, with archery, darts, rifle shooting, etc nights are usual bingo, then a turn, ok wev seen them all but the bar area is so nice to sit out at and meet people, lotsvof chill sitting ares too.Sunbeds , not the comfyest but take you own beach towel for a bit of padding, we did and we where fine, The sunbeds on the main beach are 7 eauros 2 with a brolly.Yes beach towels are only changed every 3days but I agree you wouldnt take a towel a day if you took your own and the hotel does do its bit for the enviroment by doing thisso we where fine with that too, we had a great hol and will def, go back. Trips, do the Red bus tour from top of town near mexican rest, tour goes to Farmagusta for 25 earos well worth it, I hope this helps, this is my honest view, no moans about anything.More
Lovely hotel- with great staff
As soon as we walked in the hotel impressed us. The english speaking staff made us feel welcome and clearly explained the details of the hotel. The room was lovely, clean nicely furnished with a stunning ocean view- well worth paying the extra for. Bathroom a little basic, but again clean and lovely. Breakfast was served in a roomy dining area with a terrace if you want to sit outside. Good range of hot and cold foods. Lunch and dinner was served in a different dining area. Again good range of hot and cold foods. Bar/entertainment area next to the pool. Good range of evening activities for kids and adults. Pool was clean and a good size with adequate sunbeds for all. all staff were helpful friendly and professional. Bus stop 2 mins from hotel takes you to main area of Protaras/ Fig Tree Bay in 10 mins.More
