Fantastic holiday! Nice hotel with friendly staff. Restaurant staff was very friendly to everyone, reception staff was helpful.
The main contingent of tourists in the hotel in May were retirees. By the end of May, a contingent of holidaymakers became noticeably younger, there were young couples and children.
Our holiday was great, we loved it! Protaras is a nice place with beautiful beaches.
Iliada Hotel is located in the heart of Protaras. Protaras is actually one street with shops and restaurants.
Just outside the hotel on the beach there is a center of water attractions. You can take a catamaran for half an hour for 10 euros or buy trip to Cavo Greco for euros per person.
Near the hotel - bus stop, you can reach Paralimni or Ayia Napa for 1,5 euros per person. Buses run approximately every half an hour. Buses are oldish and without air conditioning. Nearby you can rent a car or a bike. In Protaras surrounding area there are bicycle lanes.
Directly at the airport take free hand out maps. Do not pass by, tell a place where you are going and they'll give you a map of this area, with marked bicycles, pedestrian and auto roads, attractions.
The hotel territory is rather small, but nice. There is a swimming pool, beach cafe and sunbeds on the grass beside the pool.
The hotel has a gym with fairly primitive equipment.
There was Wi fi Internet, for free, but only at the reception. A signal was weak, and it worked sometimes only at reception desk.
Hotel room was neat and tidy. Furniture was rather old, mattress on one of the beds was sagging. The room has a TV, refrigerator, hairdryer (its holder has been screwed), there is a balcony. Air conditioning worked properly. There were not enough rooms with double bed.
Rooms have connection doors, so the audibility is high.
Towels are changed daily, but the bed linen was not changed for period of 10 days at all! The quality of cleaning is average, but generally ok.
Our room was on the 3 rd floor, with excellent side sea view.
Half of the rooms overlooking the Sunrise Hotel, and the other half - the other side, where there is construction, so I do not advise to take them. Situated on a hill, the hotel has -1 (where the restaurant) and -2 (flush with the pool) floors.
Food is good. All tasty, just enough variety. Main courses at dinner vary depending on the theme nights (Mexican, Oriental, local cuisine, etc.). Breakfast is always the same, standard (eggs, sausages, bacon, croissants), at the end of our stay were pancakes.
We had our launches at the hotel restaurant on the beach. I would recommend frapuchino, and chicken kebab in pita. Portions are just enormous.
Protaras has the best beaches in Cyprus. Golden sand, clear water.
5 minutes walk from the hotel - Fig Tree Bay.
On the weekend locals come to the beach near hotel, it becomes overcrowded, very noisy. Locals occupy even hotel sun beds; use the hotel's toilet at the pool, although it is written that it is for hotel residents only. But except weekends the beach was not that crowded.
At the reception you can take a beach towel (10 euros deposit), change them daily.
