good value for money
"just returned from two weeks at this hotel. complete hotel just been refurbished . Rooms are spacious and very clean, maids do an excellent job. hotel is very clean spacious and welcoming. Entertainment staff work very hard and put on some good shows.Bar staff very helpful never had to wait to long to get served.Plenty of sunbeds but could do with a few more mobile umbrellas.Location excellent in a quiet spot next to beach.Breakfast selection excellent,lunch and dinner plenty of choice but does get a bit repetetive . My only advice is to tell chef how to cook potatoes as they were always hard.Good bus service into Protaras only 1 euro or you can walk along the good boardwalk to Protaras (about half an hour ). Would definateley return."

have lots of money handy
"Just come back from Pernera Beach hotel. Hotel was clean and rooms were big and a bigger bathroom than normal, good location and found staff to be very polite. For what we paid we thought everything would be in room, but apparently not. Safe in room Â£12.00p per week, tiny fridge Â£20. 00p per week, kettle Â£5. 00 per week extra key Â£10. 00p per week(refundable) nearly Â£100. 00p for the fortnight on top of what we paid for the holiday. You wont starve with the food but it was boring and predictable, We wont be going back to this hotel, as it seemed to be very expensive for what we got. "

"Was a bit worried as have always been self catering due to a bad half board experience years ago but shouldnt have worried. Party of 5, grandparents, daughter and two children aged 6 and 1. At the hotel we had a superior family room which included balcony with sea view, fridge (which is a must with young children), telephone, TV, air conditioning unit (which was a must), tea and coffee making facilities with fresh supplies daily (except Sundays), maid service and clean towels daily (except Sunday) and the room was very comfortable and spacious. For a 3 star hotel this hotel was fantastic. Our toilet seat broke whilst we were there and we let reception know and it was sorted the same day. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The two pools are well maintained and clean and we couldnt keep the children out of them. There were plenty of sunbeds, if not by the pool there were some further down nearer the beach on a lawned area. The beach to the side of the hotel was lovely with reasonably priced sunbeds and the sea was crystal clear. To the front of the hotel there is a small rocky beach which is great for young children (and adults) to go exploring in the rock pools. This area is also great for snorkelling. The animation team are great and work extremely hard to keep everyone entertained throughout the day but dont push you if you dont want to get involved. The football every afternoon was great, the teams got very competitive!! The food was extremely good. Breakfast was between 7 and 10 (Buffet style)and there was a huge choice of food, something for everyone and you would have to be a very fussy eater not to find something you liked. Plenty of tea, coffee and juices etc too. Evening meal was buffet style between 7 and 9 and again there was a huge choice including soup, salads, pasta, roasts with various vegetables, fish, etc etc and there was a huge choice of desserts, you could eat as much as you wanted, there was also a children's menu which was very good too. Also worth a mention is the access, for pushchairs it was brilliant, there were ramps at the main entrances and also lifts throughout the hotel. The hotel is well placed, away from the noiser areas of Protarus but not too far away! If you like walks we would recommend walks along the sea front to both sides of the hotel especially to the left as there is a beautiful little white washed Church and just beyond that a little harbour. We booked via Olympic Holidays and their rep there, Martin, was really helpful, he knows the Island very well and gave us good advice on where to go and what to do. The Lazy Day Cruise was fantastic and well worth the money we paid which included transfers and lunch. We also had a trip to Fig Tree Bay, beautiful and would recommend this to everyone - gets very busy but is still worth the trip. Plenty of restaurants around this area too for snacks, drinks etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and when we go back to Cyprus we will go back to the Penera Beach Hotel again. "

"Came back from holiday 2 weeks ago but wishing we were still there. Weather fantastic. Hotel and room were very clean and tidy. Had a fantastic pool/sea view (I would recomend this as the back view is of buildings). Good choice of food for breakfast. Dinner was eaten in the taverna which overlooked the sea and was beautiful, really good choice every night. The pool is'nt massive but big enough. Staff were all friendly and reception very helpful. A lot of the beaches charge for umbrellas/sun beds but if you walk a little up the coast, on the new walkway towards protarus, there is a restaurant/cafe with free sun loungers, right by a small beach. There are plenty of water sports available, my husband and daughter spent most of their time snorkelling off the beaches. We took a trip on the yellow boat which was fab, it took you along the coast and to a beautiful bay for swimming, snorkelling or relax in the floats provided. We also took a trip on the red open top bus, best done at the start of your holiday as they point out some nice places to visit. Water park is also worth a visit."

"Me and a friend went to Pernera Beach for one week beginning 28/06/2009, and we couldnt have had a better time! Our hotel room was large and spacious, as was the balcony that we had. Everything was clean and tidy when we got there, and we found it this way every time we returned back to it after a day out. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, as were all of the guests whilst we stayed there. The pool isnt huge, but is an ample size for anybody and its very clean. The bar is just by the pool, and serves great food during the day. This is where you will find most of the guests in the evening, the bar serves half price cocktails between 8pm-9pm. There's a small amount of nightlife within walking distance, however Protaras is a short and cheap taxi ride from the hotel and it's a lot of fun! The hotel is on the beach, which is beautiful - crystal clear waters and bright white sands. Just across the beach there is some watersports to do if you're feeling adventurous. Aswell as this, opposite the hotel entrance is the Taba Diving School which we took advantage of, and it was the best experience i have ever had. The one downside i would mention, was that our air conditioning broke down and it took a over a day to fix it. But that was the only hiccup through the whole week."

"well 2 years ago me and my family, mum sister and brother went to pernera beach hotel after reading about it in a leaflet.When we first got there in the coach the impression seemed good and i was so excited to get inside. everyhwere is very clean and welcoming, thats why we are going for the third time in a few days. All the staff are lovely and always wanting to have fun and get you to enjoy your holiday to the full. The hotel is great for all ages with entertainment all the time like: watersports, games in the pools, archery, darts, volleyball, sports day. on a night: adult games, parrot shows, comidians, magic shows and our favourite the music quiz. The rooms are cleaned everyday very presisly, leaving lovely open space when you come back on an evening. I would defo highly recomend hireing a car for a few days and go sightseeing and exploring. Cyprus is soo amazing if you get to see the culture and the main places to go."

"my hubby and i booked this hotel 2 nights before we went, we had never been to cyprus before and were given a last minute deal. we usually go self catering, as were not keen on hotel food, but this deal was half board and we were not dissapointed, the food was lovely. the hotel was great too we thought we,d be in the middle of nowhere, but we found there was plenty to do in pernera, without having to go into protaras. the hotel staff were all lovely and couldnt do enough for there guests, the rooms were spotless, and cleaned every day, our only gripe was we only had a week there, we are trying to go back in sept, for 2 weeks we,d reccomend this hotel to anyone."

"i went with 14 of my family and we had agood time the only down side to this hotel is the french!! they are so rude and they dont like it coz the entertainment is english which i can understand but they take it out on us!! They wear coats and scarfs when its boiling hot and want all the door closed! there was a wedding in the hotel so one day we couldnt use the pool and one night they moved the eating area without notice? really disappointed as we felt that we was no longer priority! There is bangning in the morning between 9-10am not sure what that was but it was bad. no refrigertor in room which was a shame. Cleaners was not very good to be honest the balcony was never cleaned there was a mark on my bed for aleast 5 days and the bathroom got very dirty but never cleaned? $35 Euros to keep room on which i thought was a joke but apart from all that the food is good the people are very nice. the pool is great but way to cold. the beach is close!! which is brillant! found all the bar staff nice. really nice people over all.. they all speak english and make you feel very welcome!. I would defo go back expect from the fridge and the banging and the wedding accident! nice hotel but the cleaning needs to improve but overall a nice hoilday! "

This was my second visit to the Pernera ...
"This was my second visit to the Pernera Beach Hotel, the first being in 2004. I travelled with my husband and 18 year old daughter. On arrival in the small hours, I noticed that one of the neon letters above the hotel was not illuminated and I wondered if that meant that things had deteriorated. I need not have worried, virtually nothing had changed since 2004. On checking in I mentioned to the reception desk that we had stayed before and the following morning we were presented with two guest towels and a note which read "A gift for our loyal guests". Our room was immaculate as was the bathroom. The air conditioning was adequate though not cool as the room we had in 2004. On that occasion we had room 365 - a huge corner room with a bathroom with natural light. The balcony in that room was also larger than average and the room had a huge floor standing air conditioner which pumped the hot air out onto the balcony. This made one end of the balcony uncomfortably hot but there was plenty of room to sit at the other end. The air conditioner in room 365 was so effiecient you would shiver at the lowest setting! One thing I must mention is that I was delighted to find that the bedrooms are non-smoking. You are only allowed to smoke outside on your balcony. Breakfast is served in the dining room off the lobby. It is non-smoking inside and air-conditioned. There is also an outside veranda for smoking guests. The food was excellent with loads of choice. Watch out for pancakes and omelettes, cooked fresh every third morning or so on the outside veranda. This is something you normally only get with 4 star hotels and above. The evening meal was served in the Taverna overlooking the beach. It is not air-conditioned but does have overhead fans and also gets a breeze from the sea. Again the food was of an excellent quality. I particulary liked the soups served with warm bread rolls. The Taverna is non-smoking though again there is an outside area for smokers. As long as you don't mind sitting away from the main pool area, there are loads of sunbeds on the grassy area overlooking the beach. There is no need to reserve sunbeds here as you can come down any time of the day and find plenty free. From here you can take a dip in the pool or the sea with equal ease. There was entertainment around the pool all day (water aerobics, water polo, etc) and likewise in the evening. A few times we had live music, a greek night, a parrot show, karaoke and silly 'audience participation' games. There are a few shops, restaurants and banks within yards of the hotel. For more nightlife, Protaras is a short bus / taxi drive away. All the staff there work very hard, many of them are British. Must give a mention to our wonderful waitress from Newcastle who kept us entertained no end. Good luck in your new life Dawn!"
