“Beautiful hotel, Fantastic Animation Team, Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is definitely the best holiday we have had for a very long time! The complex is recently renovated, so is very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi in reception if you ask for the code at the desk.

Food is great, lots of choice every night, cocktails all included within the all inclusive, so you dont have to spend a penny if you dont want to. Some nice souvenirs close by though, and the strip from Pernera to Fig Tree Bay is lined with shops if you want to go spending.

The mini-disco at 8:30 was the highlight for us as my 3 year old daughter absolutely loved it!! The way the animation team get the kids involved is wonderful. They do various shows and work so hard day to night. Some from England some from Hungary and Bulgaria.

On the beach, lots of beds around the pool or on the grass or beach. Can't fault it.

We just stayed at the Pernera Beach from Sun 28th October to Sun 4th November. Hotel is great, very modern and very clean. Our room was a family suite for 2 adults and 2 kids, lots of space and nice balcony. No probs with check in. Arrived late and bar staff made us some toasties. Location is perfect, overlooking the sea, plenty of sunbeds, pool was slightly shaded but we took our beds onto grass area and had sun all day. food was very good and plenty to choose from. The only "moan" we have about this holiday is that we had from sun to tues with all the service and quality you would expect from all inclusive. However, we were told on Tuesday that the season ends on Wednesday!!! Our holiday was until the Sunday. And in being told that the season was ending, the hotel shut down the beautiful restaurant overlooking the sea which we loved. We were then told to use another restaurant, which although still nice, wasnt where we wanted to be! Then the entertainments team had their contracts finished on the wednesday so the evening entertaintment was not good. there was one member of the entertainments team left and as much as he did his job to the best of his ability, it was not great. Even our rep finished her job half way through so if we needed anyone to go to, we had a telephone number! As the week went on, there were less and less hotel staff as they all finished for the winter. one waiter left and we ended up having to put our dirty plates onto other tables as he couldnt clear them all in time. kids wanted coke at bar and towards end of week they ran out. breakfast they ran out of juice. on our last day there was hardly anything left for breakfast. kids loved the fresh pancakes so when we asked where they were, we were told "finished, next year"!!! indoor pool was closed - again "end of season". we loved the hotel, it was just a shame that upon booking we werent told by Thomas Cook that they finish their season at the end of October. A lot of schools had their half term the week before ours but still if people have booked until 4th November then the hotel should have full facilities until that time, especially as it was not cheap. A lot of families were not happy about this as they too were not informed at time of booking. i would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a beach holiday and modern facilities. just make sure you go when hotel is in full swing as we found it like a ghost town half way through our week!

Room Tip: we were facing out towards a supermarket, very quiet and no disturbance. we had a family suite and i...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Stayed during October half term so prices reflected that but we were not disappointed. Standard room was a bit tight with a fold up bed for our 3 year old but the location is great and the room facilities, safe, kettle and fridge and hairdryer bonus!
Some reviews have criticised the food here however our experience was positive. The location of the restaurant overlooking the beach made you feel like you were in a beachside taverna rather than an all inclusive dining room which can often resemble a school canteen! Lots of traditional specialties and choice. Desserts were a bit odd but would recommend the hot puddings especially their lava cake.
Staff work incredibly hard to make sure you enjoy yourself. If you want a taste of Cyprus and not a faceless European chain then this mid priced AI would suit.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a child go for a bigger room. Ask for a beach view if you like a sunny b...

myself,husband and my fifteen year old daughter stayed at the this hotel from the 25th oct - 30th oct 2012. We was very tired when we arrived as it was early hours of the morning, Checking in was quick and efficient. Went straight up to our rooms,which we found quite modern and spacious. Breakfast was nice with a variety of english breakfast,pancakes and cereals etc. However when it came to lunch and evening meal,we wasn't impressed with what they had on offer. We are not fussy people and we eat most things,we also found it very repetitive. My daughter is not a massive lover of meat,and on some occasions she would go for a vegetarian dish,which she sometimes found fish in it and it never stated so. Also there was a polite notice in the rooms asking guests not to reserve sunbeds,as their towels could be removed. We never actually got a sunbed by the pool as people were reserving beds very early and yet their towels wasn't removed. Overall couldn't be faulted and enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here 14 - 24 October, absolutely fantastic. Speedy check-in, everything explained. Room on third floor with a view of the pool, fridge, kettle, safe and air con all included. Had bad experiences in the past with all inclusive, but this is by far the best ever. Excellent food with plenty of choice at all meals, snacks at the pool bar if you didn't fancy lunch in the restaurant. Pool towels provided, room cleaned every day, beds changed twice and bathroom towels three times. Good entertainment with something different every night. All staff excellent - nothing too much trouble - everything done with a smile. Well worth paying extra to keep the room as we had a late flight. Emma the rep was fantastic - always available to answer any queries and the welcome meeting was excellent. Went on two trips, both very good. Booked this hotel based on previous reviews, glad we did. Can't say anything negative at all and even said the same on the questionnaire we completed on our last day. Would highly recommend this hotel and have done to family, friends and colleagues! Hopefully we'll be back next year.

Room Tip: Book a room on a higher floor with full or limited sea view, well worth it.

Stayed here all inclusive with my girlfriend and our friends from 14th to 21st October 2012. What a Holiday!

Arrived late at night, greeted by English staff on reception. Check in was speedy and pleasant, and we were soon up in our rooms, The rooms have recently been refurbished, we were in room 205, we had a king size double bed, safe, air con and fridge at no extra charge and a view over the pool and beach to die for. Room was cleaned daily and always had fresh towels every other day.

As soon as we went down to the bar for a drink we were asked if we would like a cheese toasty as the restaurant had closed, this was a nice touch.

All of the staff in the Hotel are very polite and helpful, one member of staff in particular, his name is George, he works in the Taverna restaurant and is such a nice guy, a real credit to the Hotel.

I really couldn't fault the food at the hotel, it was the best food at an all inclusive resort I had ever experienced. Breakfast was the usual full English buffet, with cereals, pancakes, toast and fruits and salads. For Lunch and Dinner, there were different choices of meats (carvery one night) pastas, fish, and salads every day, some times up to 5 different salad choices and if that wasn't enough for you, then you could build your own, the dessert choices were also very good too. The food was that good that we never left the hotel to eat out, there was simply no need. if you didn't want to go to the buffet restaurant for something to eat, you could order snacks from the pool bar, which consisted of burgers, pizzas, tuna in pita bread and pasta dishes, all of these were also good quality and tasty. The beer served here is Leon or Kappa, there is a good selection of cocktails and spirits and the wines served in the restaurant is also not bad at all.

The Hotel is set right on the beach and easy to get to, the sea was lovely, warm and calm. The pool area is also nice but if you want a decent spot you better prepared to set your alarm clock early LOL! You get a card which enables you to exchange it for a towel to use by the pool, this is exchangeable every 3 days.
You can also walk down to Protaras via the board walk, it takes about 30 minutes, we did it one evening and got a taxi back for 8 euros.

The animation team work very hard with lots of activities throughout the day and make the days interesting, archery is well worth a go. Evening entertainment......OK I'll be honest, it's no Royal Albert Hall, but it is varied and there's something for everyone. Quiz, raffles, bingo and Karaoke, along with tribute acts and magicians, again I have to say it really is a good effort for Hotel Entertainment.

The weather, simply perfect, it was over 30C every day and never dropped below 20C at night.

I would love to return to this hotel next year and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a nice relaxing beach holiday. Either couples, with friends or families, its perfect.
