We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this one probably had the best decor and pool, but was one of the most expensive.
Friendly reception staff at check in and manager spent time to talk about sightseeing, shopping etc in the vicinity which was very helpful. Room a decent size and clean. Breakfast good with a variety of interesting jams and eggs cooked to order. Location is ok, about 15 mins or so from old harbour, and 10 mins to roundabout with buses etc.
There are quite a few things to see in the area around Kyrenia, but we had only two nights, so another night would have been useful here. We did go to Heraclion castle which cost 60 TL by taxi return. We arrived from Nicosia which took about 30 mins on 4.5 TL bus.
We have recently returned from a trip to Bodrum, Selcuk and Istanbul and the prices in Kyrenia were far greater which was a bit offputting but still competetive compared to the UK.
Wifi is free in this hotel as you would expect.
Breakfast finishes at 10.30 am which was good for us, as we hate hotels with an early breakfast finish time.
Despite the large size of the pool they only had 32 sunbeds which was not enough to go round half the pool! They have far more than 16 rooms so this was very frustrating and must be a real problem in peak season. I made do on the floor, and my girlfriend pulled up a chair from the bar. Not ideal..
Bathroom looked good, but the shower screen wasnt really up to the job, a simple shower curtain would be better.
No shampoo provided which is unusual for this class of hotel, and lower class hotels in Cyprus did provide it.
The nearby mosque can be heard quite easily so ear plugs recommended.
Kyrenia is a lovely place in Cyprus, and I would recommend for 3 or 4 nights, but I would not want to stay at this hotel for a whole weeks holiday as not enough things to do in close proximity. (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

... was the island's most important port city, and a gateway to merchants carrying goods to Western Europe.
The second day with the car was shopping day. We had planned to do some serious shopping here because:
- You can buy things unavailable in Turkey, such as bacon :-)
- Many things are a lot cheaper, such as alcohol
... 5 mins! Wind and thunder continued for a while but the sun was shining all the time, decided to sit indoors reading and watching BBC iplayer. Had an email late afternoon from our pet insurers to confirm settlement of claim for Shebas operation and treatment, which was pretty quick as we have in the past had some poor experiences when claiming. Supper was sweet and sour stir fry followed by yet more ice cream. DVD watched and time for bed. Visitors arrive tomorrow which we are looking forward ...
... to go. Weather was sunny and t shirt time 21C. John to tackle a bit of gardening and tidy up outside and get the jeep started, whilst Sarah unpacked cases and spring cleaned indoors. Jeep battery was flat but that we expected so put it on charge hoping that there was nothing else. Late afternoon battery into jeep and yippeee it started. Quick shower, change and time to pop out and change money....rate was 3.82TL to £1 - wow that was really good. Then off to the supermarket for food ...
Had my usual walk along the beach and headed into breakfast, did some people watching, i was the only lone traveller there, most seemed to be on long breaks and a lot older, but they were never the less entertaining to listen too.
Decided over breakfast that North Cyprus would not get the better of me, so armed with a list of places that i needed to drive through i headed back to Pyla and over the crossing, i had made sure i had petrol this time and headed ...
... continued for Ally and Erik, because of some confusion with the taxi company picking them up from the airport. The wrong car took the wrong people, and the driver had a strange combination of passenger names on his list. This all happened very late at night because their flight arrived around 11pm, but we did finally get to greet them when they arrived at the villa in the wee hours of the morning.
