... could see only terraces. I was mostly out however, so this was not a problem. For me it functions only to light up the room.

Coffee/tea facilities are provided and I had a treat of two pieces of cake and a bottle of water. TV with local and satellite channels was functioning well and there was also a mini fridge and a hairdryer.

BATHROOM: Surprisingly the bathroom was big with a bath tub. It had a high ceiling and much light. Toiletries included a ...

I really enjoyed coming here. This structure used to serve as an inn for locals or a resting location for caravans years back. It was built in 1570 by Ottomans.



It is a splendid example of fine, medieval Ottoman craftsmanship ...

... You know that saying "It's all Greek to me!"? Well, there is a reason why it exists...Greek is so difficult!! It not the same as learning Spanish or Italian. With Greek you have learn the names of all 24 alphabet letters, their sounds, and how to write their capital and lower case forms. And let me tell you, it is not easy! For example: Etta makes an "i" sound but it's capital letter is ...

... be an alarming experience the first time you hear it.

While lying there, somewhere between slumber and wakefulness, the sound recalls the night before to me. This is Sunday morning, and Easter morning at that. Mere hours before I was witnessing the ceremony acknowledging the rising of Christ at the Orthodox church, and participating in the sombre lighting of candles to represent the passing of the holy flame passing ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Riverside Garden Resort Alsancak - Karavas

    Time at riverside

    from

    i first visited riverside holiday village in 2003, which i thoroughly enjoyed so we all decided to go back in 2006, to my disappointment our room was in bad condition, to which i was very dismayed, the overall cleanliness of the village had changed. the staff where not as friendly as the recent ones. and when it come to the nightlife the ranch bar was a morgue. im sorry riverside but your hotel has gone right down the drain which is such a shame as i really enjoyed my stay in 2003 but 2006 was a complete letdown. Th e mangagement need to take a serious look on how to make riverside a more friendly and busy village to stay in, as on a evening there is nothing to do, and alot of customers go else where for food and entertainment.

    Good base for a Holiday

    from

    We stayed at the Riverside Holiday Village from the 8th - 15th April 2006. The holiday was booked direct with the hotel who also arranged flights and transfers at a very good price

    Very nice hotel in the nature

    from

    it was very good holiday for me.. hotel is not luxry but they have everything for holiday.. hotel emplyoyees are very good, service is very good and also food's are very nice... i rented a bicycle for 3 days and paid 20stg, area is very nice villages and peoples are very warm... there are so many restaurants and good markets around the hotel. their rooms are villas and they have all equipment for cooking in the room so if you want you can cook your own meal in your villa... they have indoor swiming pool and open air swiming pool, moreover they have small aqua park... during my holiday i used gym and sauna equipments were profesional... finally housekeeping service was very nice....

    Visiting for a 4th time!!!

    from

    First impressions in October 2004 urged me to take a trip alone with my daughter in June 2005 and again in October 2005, when it was like a family reunion! So many people were there again who we knew it was amazing. The rooms are good and if not satisfactory you will be reallocated, the staff are very friendly. It is a family run village and the family regularly eat at the restaurant which is a very good sign, the food is excellent and always plenty of choice! Expect traditional Turkish cuisine, cooked breakfasts are not quite the English version! The staff are always willing to help if you have a picky food child. The only real downside is the gym a bit antiquated, massages are superb! Going back again in May so fingers crossed everything will be great again. My daughter won't go anywhere else loves the aqua park and picking fresh oranges etc. Not a place for after dinner entertainment so be prepared to take taxis, a mini bus takes you to Kyrenia and local beaches, returning about 3ish every day. A totally relaxing holiday, lots to do if you make the effort.

    Holiday camp out of season

    from

    This looked like a good place for families in hot summer weather, but out of season and with few residents the property seemed rather drab and forlorn. The so-called superior villa allocated was shabby, with stained carpets, broken tiles and a barely adequate bathroom, and because it had not been occupied it was cold and uninviting. Moreover it was next to a farm and sleep was disturbed by animal noises. We had only one meal - breakfast - before moving elsewhere, and it was very plain indeed. I have no wish to criticise the hotel on the basis of one night's stay, and I must say that the management and staff were charming, but I am posting these comments because I think the travel brochures paint a rather optimistic picture and that this is not a good choice for singles, couples and seniors.

    Peaceful winter week

    from

    January 1st in Northern Cyprus. Nice and sunny but the temp is a bit cool for winter week, however only about 10 mins rain so not too bad. Flight out on Cyprus Turkish airline was quite average and the food and service was good as long as you can put up with the 45 mins at Antalya for the next leg of 45 mins to Ercan next to Nicosia. The return was bearable but the food was not and on both journeys a bit noisy.

    Brill views

    from

    lovely place, friendly people, excellent beaches, excellent food. only problem after dinner no entertainment, boring

    Excellent time at Riverside.

    from

    We have just returned from a 14 day trip to Riverside Village had an excellent time.Our apartment was superb plenty of room and spotlesly clean,the towels and bedding are changed every 2 days and nothing is to much trouble for the staff.We stayed B a B basis which was the best option as there were several local resteurants which offered good value food these being.

    Fantastic holiday!

    from

    Excellent, fantastic, wonderful in Riverside!

    Great for Relaxing

    from

    Visited the Riverside in the summer of August 2003. The complex is family run and produces all its own fruit and vegetables. There is a farm attached to the complex. Its about a 15 minute drive from kyrenia. Northern cyprus is an unspoilt part of the island of Cyprus. The rooms at the riverside are spacious and clean. You have to be a bit quick in the morning to get your towels at the pool loungers. We got round this by going to a local beach called Sunset Beach there is courtesy transport laid on. Sunset beach has a restaurant and when we visited there were fewer than half a dozen people using the pool and loungers all free of charge as long as you buy a drink or a bite to eat. Riverside itself has a good Resaturant and poolside bar. They also put on specisl local themed evenings which are free if you are half board. The accomodation is very cheap ------------------------------------------. the only downside is at the you have to Fly in via Turkey. We anjoyed our two weeks very relaxing and very hot around 40C. Would recommend to couples of any age and families. Riverside also has tennis courts and horse riding. The local Restaurants are great particularly the Farmhouse just 2 minutes walk away graet family atmosphere. Will be going back in 2005
