This was my 7th year running in Protaras & 1st time in Brilliant apts. In short, I would not advise anything but self catering or b&b. There are so many nice resturants in Protaras and you will never have a bad meal anywhere, so I would avoid half board as evening entertainment is quiet at hotel and most of the best tribute acts are on all along the strip at different bars. Main venues are Loveboat, Rockerfellas, Ghetto Bar & Sphinx. Also TJ's have a bit more laid back entertainment with an achustic band on Tue & Thur's.
The rooms are spacious & we were only in a studio, you get flat screen tv with music channels and FOX movies which is a bonus. Lidl over the road which is cheapest place for Keo beer and food. However, go to Happy Days supermarket on strip for branded drinks, a litre of smirnoff costs only £7.50!!
Pool is great with nice grass area which we used most days. Nice and relaxed and never had a problem with sun beds.
If you want a brekky, a quick walk to Rives Bar and you can get one for 3 euro excluding drink. Cheaper than hotel. As everyone says, ideal location, just walk down steps on to Eden Square and you are on the main strip.
Ignore any comments about expensive, cheaper than back home. Pint of Keo you can get for 1.70 euro, Carling 2.90 euro, bottle magners 3.50 euro. Was getting rate of 1.21 to £1 out there. Great snack meals in cheers and only fools & horses, and everywhere does some good 3 course options. Did boat trip Captain Panikos, leaves 11 am from Jetti with all other boats. Great value. 2 and a half hours, free kids & just 10 euro per adult. You get Wine or Juice, meatball (homemade), crisps etc and juicy melon. Travel to Famugusta line and then to Cape Greco for swim.
I've stayed at the Sunrise Beach hotel, Silver Sands hotel, Sandra Apts and now the Brilliant. The brilliant represent best VFM!!
If you want to sit in the hotel all night, then this is not the resort for you. All the entertainment is on the strip and the bars are much cheaper than hotel prices.
You will not be disappointed if you like relaxing in the day, average temp 35c each day when we were there, June 17th- July 1st.
I wouldnt worry about review with water problem, that has now been resolved, we had no probs with shower, as showered before 8pm.
