I have just come back from a 2 week stay here at the iliada beach hotel and I wouldn't go back here.
As previously said when we arrived there was no advice about the hotel given just our key. The rooms are fine, quite dated but not terrible. The pool area has the usual problem of having to get up early for a sunbed and I would say the pool itself is actually quite small for the amount of guests at the hotel. The bar by the pool is good but it's silly that all inclusive guests cant have bottled water, slush puppies, fresh orange juice or milkshakes.
The worst part of the hotel is the food and as an all inclusive guest its a pretty important factor of the holiday. Breakfast is okay, the pancakes are good but the cake is hard almost stale and the bacon was always under cooked. Lunch was awful. I agree that it was mainly catered for the Russian and German guests. It was just cuts of dry or fatty meat or fish and rice, vegetables and potatoes. Dinner was very hit and miss, some nights terrible having the same problem as lunch and some good but I do think they only seemed good in comparison to other nights. The food is lukewarm and very much quantity over quality.
I agree with other comments that you can go elsewhere such as the Caribbean and Cape Verde still all inclusive for the same price and having been on many all inclusive Caribbean holidays its such a shame that the EU standards of all inclusive are so far behind the Caribbean.
The staff are average, the young girls who waitressed were always friendly and positive but other sometimes blunt and just disengaged.
All in all I had a great holiday but only due to myself and my boyfriend having our own fun at the beach and eating out. Protaras itself is great and has lots of lovely restaurants and bars.
