Two night stay at Christmas
Reviewed Jan 7, 2017
Stayed from Christmas Day afternoon till 27th December as a treat for my daughter and grandchildren who live on the Island. Everything was excellent from checking in to checking out. Our room was spacious and very welcoming, food was excellent and plentiful and the hotel Christmas decorations were absolutely fantastic. My daughter and granddaughter used the spa and said it was lovely there. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Only problem we had was we missed our first meal on the Christmas Day lunchtime as we were late checking in, we were told we could get a voucher for another day but didn't realise till after we checked out that it had to be the day of leaving and as my year old grandson wasn't well we had to miss it which was unfortunate. We will definitely be back sometime soon for another stay. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Awesome hotel..value for money
Reviewed Nov 26, 2016
I've recently stayed at this hotel and have nothing bad to say about it. Its at a great location and so many facilities/amenities under the one roof. Although it was cooler season, the hotel boasts a terrace area overlooking the pool area and sea views..we were able to relax and soak in the sun. My accommodation was booked through "gonorthcyprus", they are pretty reliable. I got a good deal which included full board; breakfast, lunch, dinner, some alcoholic beverages and the spa rooms/indoor pool etc. The buffet was fantastic and a great variety of food to chose from. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The hotel is close to the city center of Kyrenia but I do suggest a hire car to get around in. The staff were also very friendly and professional especially front desk staff member "Onur" who was very nice and helpful. I do recommend this hotel in Kyrenia and will be looking forward in coming back for summer 2017. Also to note the popular night club "Cage" is on location and goes off in the summer season. Highly recommended hotel.
