We have been to Protaras 8 times and this was our 2nd year running at the Brilliant! You will see from other reviews that the hotel is only about 5 mins from the strip and 10 mins from the beach. At the weekends hotels on the beach get rammed with locals, but the Brilliant apts are not affected.
You have a fab kids pool which is great for under 5's & also play area in the shade. The main pool has the jacuzzi bubble beds & music is played around the pool area which gives a good atmosphere. There are various activities during the day for the older kids such as water volleyball, darts, killer pool etc. My daughter aged 7 went to the kids club 2-4pm, and Holly & Eve made her holiday, all the kids have a fantastic time, and she made lots of friends. You must have booked with Thomson, otherwise you cannot use the kids club.
Apts on the ground floor have larger balconies and this what we requested. Rooms facing the tennis courts are quieter, as some evening singers can go on til 12pm, and pool view rooms are noisier.
We always go self catering as there are so many nice restaurants to eat in. The kitchen & room facilities are great, and we had a big king bed. Flat screen tv has some good music channels as well. Only gripe was no wifi, but free in all the bars in the resort so no probs.
The hotel restaurant is ok for the odd snack, but we got most of our supplies from lidl & sat on the balcony for lunch. No problems with rushing for a sunbed at 7am in the morning, 9am was fine to get beds on the grass area near the pool.
Make sure you take the beach walk along the wooden path which is all lit up at night, and walk into Pernera. You turn right down past waves bar to the jetti where he boats trips are, and then left along there. Takes about 30 mins or so, but bars along the way where you can sit & look out at the sea. Ok when you want a chill out night.
Otherwise, there are loads of fab tribute acts along the strip, mainly at rockerfellas & love boat !
There are trampolines & mini fairs for the kids, and this is a real, fun family resort!
If you don't like it here, then there is something wrong with you!!
Ps weather, schorchio!
