Sadly we left this beautiful hotel on 4th October. I say sadly because I love this hotel, but I am looking forward to staying here again.
We arrived at just before midnight on the 20th September for our two week self catering holiday. The reception area was gleamingly clean, and the receptionist was very cheerful.
Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious my sister slept in the living on the sofa bed whilst I had the bedroom which had 2 single very comfy beds(if I could sneak the mattress in my suitcase I would have). And the kitchenette was well stocked e.g. pots, pans, plates, cutlery.
The bathroom was adequate for what it is needed for, and we had a balcony that had a pool and sea view.
there is a lidl across the road which is very handy for self catering
The main strip is only a short walk away, there is a bit of an incline on the way but it is accessible even if you have a mild/moderate mobility problem but there is an easier way to get to and from the Brilliant
ALL the staff at the hotel were very friendly and always had a smile and a hello from them.
Just the feel of relaxation at the hotel was an added bonus to the feel of the hotel.
Nearby are many, many bars restaurants and gift shops. We were also lucky enough to go for the CYPRUS INDEPENDANCE BANK HOLIDAY for which in Aiya Napa they put on a 4 day festival.
I cannot put over in words how much I absolutely love this hotel.
The only negative we found was the entertainment that starts around 9-9.30 Is very loud, and the Elvis singer wasn't very good but some of entertainment on the strip in ROCKAFELLAS is fabulous. Especially The Legend, The Skaman and my favourite was Nick Garvey as Robbie Williams, AWESOME.More
a great hotel
We had a week in an apartment in September and we had a fantastic stay.
Booking in was painless, the Reception staff all week were great.
Room was large and spotlessly clean, it couldn't have been any cleaner.
Bed was huge and really comfy, bed in the living room was ok.
Shower was powerful and hot.
Air con was in both rooms and worked great - and it was free !!
Safe within the wardrobe worked great, was free but paid a deposit.
Balcony was a tad small for the 3 of us to be truthful but it was ok, view was of LIDL and the bins, but we didn't pay for a room over looking the pool.
We did however email the hotel the week before and ask for a 1st floor room - and we got it so well done.
Hotel is a short walk from the main strip behind the hotel (10 mins tops), it can be quite steep so if you have walking issues or are elderly, you may struggle.
You walk behind the hotel and down a path through Eden Gardens (some restaurants here) and you're on the strip. The beach is another 5 mins past the hotels.
Pool was large and we had no sunbed issues, although we did go in September.
The grass area below the pool was very popular as in the sun all day.
There are a few signs up regards towels on sunbeds but you know us Brit's, we do it anyway - BLOODY ANNOYING - PLEASE STOP !!!
Pool was great, large and shallow areas, lots of places to sit in the pool and chat.
WI-FI was available and free, best signal at Reception and if using at the pool be on that side of the pool. No free in-room wi-fi.
We ate only twice at the hotel pool bar, we had a breakfast which was really tasty and a lunchtime toastie which to be honest, wasn't great. The omelette's were fab, eat those !!
We popped over the road to LIDL a few times for breakfast, very cheap and their croissants were lovely and only 49e - nice.
There were activities going on but we didn't partake, was a bit tired so just chilled all day.
All in all a great hotel, a good location, great staff, great pool, big rooms, free air con and shower and CLEAN !!
Well done to all staff at the Brilliant.
I would certainly recommend the hotel.More
Still the best
Just come back from The Brilliant apartments on Sunday 27th September, this is the third time we have stayed here and it's still brilliant, the staff are the friendliest people in Cyprus, the rooms are very clean and the bed is the biggest I have ever seen. The food is good but could do with a few more options, we went self-catering so went out for food a fair bit,if you want a very,very good meal go to Olympus restaurant, it's without doubt the best meal I have ever had in any restaurant in the world. Getting back to the Brilliant apartments, will definitely be going again,I can't believe how anybody can rate it less than 4 stars.For me the only place to go.More

NOT SO BRILLIANT ANYMORE
Just returned from another stay at these apartments looked at other places but decided to give it another go. Very expensive for what you get over the years have seen this place going downhill after renovations.After you renovate a place you have to maintain it or you go back to where you started broken tiles in lift floors chip tiles in bathrooms holes in curtains no soap in bathrooms ,entertainment not very good when it's on,food awful .Reception staff only shining light keeping this place going with attention and help given to residents with a happy smiley face cannot fault Lenia and Tracy on reception.Did visit Sunrise Gardens as this is part of the same group of hotels the difference between the two like night and day hope they maintain this hotel or it will just go same way or maybe THE BRILLIANT could get another makeover and bring it up to same standard and make it live up to what it's name says BRILLIANT.Sorry but this hotel/apartments is dying in front of the owners eyes.More

Great hotel, lovely staff!
Stayed at the Brilliant for my first visit to Cyprus and I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. The hotel is kept impeccably clean and tidy, the rooms are a great size with plenty of furnishings (didn't even use half of them)! The staff are beyond friendly, nothing is too much trouble. As soon as you put your fork down the table is cleared!! I was really surprised at just how well you get looked after.
Highly recommend!!! More
