My husband and I stayed at the sunrise beach hotel 3-17 July and got married in the hotel during our stay. We travelled with family from 9 months to 82 years. When we arrived we were very pleased with our corner suite room. Fantastic views and lovely decor. The rest of our party had booked sea view rooms but were put in rooms at the side of the hotel which the hotel classed as sea view rooms. You had to turn to the side to see the sea so we would call them side view rooms. As they had paid the extra for sea view they all asked to be changed but had to wait till the morning for the reservations team. They were all moved with no issues and as a token gesture we were also upgraded to corner suite with jaccuzi :) During our stay we spoke to lots of people who had their room changed so don't be afraid to ask if you are not happy. Pedros was very helpful and helped everyone move their belongings. All of the rooms were very nice inside and very clean. The maid's did a fantastic job.
The sunbed allocation was great At first we had loungers in the garden which was very relaxing. We asked to be moved to poolside which wasn't a problem. Once other guests left we got their loungers :)
The food in the hotel was very nice. There is lots of choice at breakfast and you can choose to sit inside or outside. The lunch was also lovely, the portions were a little big though. The dinner was the best. It wasn't your usual school hall type buffet. You went inside to collect your food and sat outside overlooking the pool and sea. There was always entertainment during dinner. The pianist was very romantic. The staff at dinner were very pleasant and very professional. Our favourite waitress was Anna. She was always very friendly and was always asking if were looking forward to our wedding. The personal touch from Anna made us feel very important.
Entertainment at night was okay. It was very subdued and not many people stayed to watch it. However, if you didn't fancy a lively night on the strip this was a nice contrast. The entertainment duo were very nice people and tried their best to get you involved during the day (we were much too lazy).
Protaras strip was very good. There is something for everyone with lots of nice restaurants, fast food places, shops and bars.
Everyone had a lovely holiday and we will go back to Protaras.
Now to the wedding (I remember reading these reviews as a bride to be, desperate to read about the weddings).
I thought there was going to be lots of weddings whilst we were there and it would be a bit like a conveyor belt. Actually in our 2 week stay we saw about 6 weddings. We were the only wedding couple booked on our day so we got to choose between the 2 venues. We chose the garden deck as it was the more private of the 2. The food and banqueting manager (I really struggled with his name) was lovely. He met with us a few times and was very flexible with the menus etc. Roseann was our Thomson wedding co-ordinator and she was fantastic. She really did go out of our way to make sure our day was extra special. She deserves an award. The wedding package came with chair covers but we paid extra to have to whole area decorated including chair bows, a flower arch and flower stands. I would recommend this as it really was beautiful. We also had two violinists which was very romantic. All of these extras can be booked with you co-ordinator. The photographs and DVD were also booked through Thomsons and were of a much higher quality than we thought. We left our guest for just over an hour to go to cape greco for sunset pictures. I love our sunset pictures and it was a lovely experience. We then had our meal on the garden deck and it was gorgeous. We had speeches and then plugged our ipod into the sound system for some dancing. It really was the most perfect and relaxed night. If you are thinking of getting married at Sunrise Beach you wont be disappointed. The hotel also have a few surprises for wedding couples which I wont spoil for you.
I am so pleased I chose Sunrise Beach and I can't wait to go back in the future.
