Brilliant Apartments  

This place has a big lagoon pool and an à la carte restaurant. Plus, there’s plenty here for children.

This place has a pair of pools. One’s a huge lagoon number with a Jacuzzi®, while the other’s a shallow pool just for children. There’s also an à la carte restaurant with a spacious sea-view terrace.

These apartments are in the heart of Protaras, a couple of minutes’ walk from the nearest shops and tavernas. And it’s just a 15-minute walk to Fig Tree Bay, a sandy Blue Flag beach.

Lovely family break

We stayed here from Sunday the 12th October for ten nights. We arrived at the apartments at tea time and we were very impressed at our location and our ground floor apartment was huge. Very very clean complex, Pool area was immaculate. We had bed and breakfast here at the apartments and can honestly say the menu was good choice and reasonable amount. The staff in the morning were superb, very attentive and always friendly. We had clean towels everyday and beds were always tidied. Maids work very hard and are friendly if you are. Strip is busy but very good at night, great food places on there and we never paid more than 50 euros for our meal for 3 adults an one toddler. We ate at Hippo campus, Nikolas tavern, tower house being our favourite overall as the service in there is second to none and the chips are amazing! We tried super s as well on the upper strip and we only paid 32 euros for our meal, great family restaurant, reminded me a bit of faulty towers but lovely staff and free starters and we had a lovely treat at Anatolia, it was busy as always, but huge choice of food an service exceptional. Visited nissi beach but can honestly say fig tree bay is 5 minutes from brilliant and it beats nissi for cleanliness of the beach and space. Brilliant apartments is not a five star beach front complex, but we went to look at location to get married over there, we looked at all the five stars and ok they maybe amazing inside and have Moët on tap but the outside area set up and pools were rubbish compared to the brilliant apartments. I actually walked past capo bay and didn't notice it. Overall perfect location and we will definitely return to brilliant apartments.More

Brilliant apartments, good but not brilliant

Not much input from Thomson, lacked any entertainment, rooms more than adequate and cleanliness questionable, check bedding and cots as we found blood on ours. Staff very friendly but for self catering apartments it seems a bit ridiculous that you can't take your own food and drinks to the pool?More

October Visit

The brilliant appartments are a good size for two people. The lounge with a kitchenette has two sofas and a balcony with a table and two chairs. The bedroom was a good size also. Each had air conditioning. The Brilliant apppartments complex has a good pool with lots of sun beds. There is a restaurant which does good basic food. The whole complex was kept very clean. The main strip of protaras is about a five minute walk away down a slight hill, with the beaches another few minutes walk from the main strip. We were self catering and there is a Lidl store opposite the entrance.More

Apartments live up to their name

We stayed here for 2 weeks 28th September to 12th October and had a fabulous time.Our apartment 208 was lovely, very spacious and modern and spotlessly clean with a beautiful pool view. The pool is quite large with a jacuzzi built in and plenty of sunbeds around the sides. We were self catering and we found the food in the bar really nice, especially the breakfast with plenty of choice at reasonable prices, drinks were also not expensive, although the choice of beer is quite limited. There is also a Lidl supermarket just across the road which is handy for essentials like water, bread, milk etc. The apartments are in a good position only 5 mins walk down to the main strip where there are plenty of bars and restaurants and 10 mins to the sandy beach. This was our 1st visit to the Brilliant apartments but we will definately be going back, these apartments certainly live up to their name.More

Excellent base for Protaris

We have just returned from a one week (self catering) stay at the Brilliant Apartments via Thomson holidays and were very happy with our choice. Our top floor (3rd floor) one bedroom apartment was large and bright with a bathroom and large separate bedroom and lounge/kitchenette/dining room containing two sofas which could convert into two single beds. Our balcony looked outwards towards the town. The rooms were simply decorated, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The bathroom overbath shower was quite powerful and there was plenty of hot water. The kitchenette had a good electric hob,microwave, toaster and kettle with an adequate kit of pots, pans , bowls, cutlery etc , and a hair dryer was provided in the bedroom.The maid service was fine and the towels were replaced twice during the week. Air con was included in the price in both living room and bedroom, but the strong box cost an additional €15 for the week. The apartment staff were friendly and courteous with the reception being staffed well into the evening. The apartments are ideally placed for the Protaris "strip" being only a five minute walk from loads of bars, restaurants, shops etc.. A Lidl supermarket is literally over the road and was an excellent source for self catering supplies at reasonable prices. Whilst the swimming pools were excellent with a separate pool for children and loads of sun loungers etc, if you are a beach fan, the excellent Protaris beach is a bit of a walk away on the other side of the strip. Our choice was to eat out each night so other than on the fine poolside snacks, I cannot comment on the food if you opted for B&B or more. The internal dining facilities however did seem a little odd being just a separate area of the reception/bar ( a bit too much like a canteen for my taste). The bar however was excellent and well stocked at standard prices. There was free WiFi available in the reception area but you had to pay if you wanted access in the rooms. All in all, a great place to stay and if we ever return to Protaris I would certainly consider these apartments again.More
