We spotted the Altinkaya Holiday Resort on the gonorthcyprus website and thought it was a nice looking hotel with attractive pool area. We booked in and on arrival were impressed by how appealing the hotel looks. The staff were friendly and made us feel at home. Our room was functional and clean but could benefit from a touch up to freshen the look. We slept well in the bed. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and found the morning meal sufficiently set us up for each day, we didn't eat in for... more

My husband and I have visited the Altinkaya three times now with GoNorthCyprus. Gary looks after us very well and arranges our transfers to and from the hotel, which is very helpful. We've made some friends at the hotel, other older couples like us who we see there regularly. The hotel has a homely feel and staff all work very hard to keep the guests happy, which we are! We stayed in a very nice bungalow and enjoyed the pool, there are always some sunbeds free and the atmosphere is relaxed. It's... more

Just returned from our second stay at the Altinkaya, booked both times through gonorthcyprus. It is fast becoming our favourite place for an out of season break, the staff are so welcoming and we always have a wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and clean and the hotel grounds are well kept. We really enjoyed feeling cosy by the open fire in the lounge and the food at breakfast was fresh and filling. In fact we stayed for lunch and dinner on several days and were impressed not only by the standard... more

We had a lovely break at the Altinkaya late on in the year and would like to thank gonorthcyprus for getting us such a good deal. We'd never been to this part of Cyprus before and wanted a cheap getaway before the madness of Christmas, luckily we found the hotel when browsing the gonorthcyprus website and the price was great. We had a clean, comfortable apartment that was cleaned daily, very cosy and private. The staff were friendly and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The barman was... more

We booked a last minute trip to north Cyprus with, and chose the Altinkaya because it seemed to be a good mid-range hotel. We weren't disappointed, the hotel was very nice and clean, a little dated in parts but for the price we paid we're not complaining! The staff were all very pleasant and friendly and we found our room very comfortable. Luckily we were facing the mountains rather than the road and the bed was lovely and soft, we slept really well. Breakfast was simple but plentiful... more

Our third visit to the hotel , the location is ideal for us , Gary at Go North Cyprus found a great deal for us with flights to Larnaca , taxi to the Hotel slightly longer but the flight was direct, so no changing planes in Turkey.The bungalows are fairly basic but clean and comfortable, we stayed in the annex so had strong WiFi signal and a well stocked bar close to hand, the only downside being that we had to cross the road for breakfast.... more

This was our third trip to north Cyprus, we decided on a trip last minute and got a good deal through gonorthcyprus. We were happy to book a budget break and the Altinkaya had good reviews. Accommodation is basic and could do with some TLC but it was clean and comfortable and the staff were faultless, so friendly and welcoming. We had a bungalow as we wanted to avoid any noise and also the stairs - my wife is a bit unsteady on her feet. We found the bungalow to be quiet and in a nice spot by the... more

We've just returned from a fantastic week's stay at Altinkaya Holiday Resort, which we booked through Such a peaceful setting despite being just off the roadside and the bungalow we stayed in was perfectly clean, comfortable and quiet. There isn't tons of choice at mealtimes but the food is fresh and tasty so this wasn't an issue for us. The pool area is gorgeous, as are the grounds, and there are wonderful views down to the city.

This Hotel is used by Cosmetic Surgery Cyprus, and as my Daughter and I were having some work done, was suggested we stay there, however, the reviews didnt seem all that favourable, but since they were familiar with guests resembling the walking wounded decided to stay. What a treat! It is small and extremely friendly, but the thing I found most appealing was the fact that many guests have been going for some 20+ years! and I can see why, its a quiet little oasis of total R & R, loads of excursions... more

We had a lovely time at Altinkaya Holiday Village in April and thought we'd leave a review to let others know just what wonderful value to expect. We'd never visited Cyprus before so went for a mid-range hotel with affordable prices. We booked through and they got us a great deal, inclusive of transfers, so we were very happy. We stayed in a spacious villa, which was very clean and comfortable and benefited from its own pool, but also noticed that the main hotel building was very... more

When we booked our holiday through Go North Cyprus we were advised that even though the accommodation was called a bungalow it actually had 2 floors! This is a Mediterranean thing apparently and while it didn't bother us, this information would be invaluable to the elderly or inform, so bravo for the recommendation.Our “bungalow” was lovely. Spacious and with a bedroom on the upper level with single beds, it had everything we wanted. The bungalows surround a nice, smaller pool... more

We booked Altinkaya primarily because of the location , to be close to family living in Girne. It was a good choice for this and worked perfectly. We knew the Hotel was a 3 star at the time of booking and our expectations were based on this - however we were somewhat disappointed at the very basic standard of the bungalow room we stayed in. That said it was clean and the bed was very comfortable, the towels were changed every day and the bed linen every other day. Breakfasts were adequate if lacking... more

This hotel is in an excellent location, and set in beautiful gardens, with a large pool. The gardens and the pool are very well maintained. The hotel is very clean and very nice. All the staff are excellent. Very friendly and helpful. If I had to find a fault, it would be that the bathrooms are a bit tired and could do with a revamp, but for what you pay on BandB, I certainly wouldn't complain. I will definitely stay again.... more

I've just returned from my first ever trip to North Cyprus and cannot believe I haven't been there sooner! It was just stunning- the least spoilt holiday spot I've been too. My husband and I chose to stay at the Altinkaya Holiday Village Resort mostly because of its location. It was situated in the heart of everything, with the beautiful mountains in the backdrop. It took us about half an hour to walk to the large town of Kyrenia (which was well worth a visit!) but there were shops, cafes and bars... more

Not knowing what to expect having never visited Northern Cyprus before I came here with an open mind and have to say, both myself and my wife were very very impressed. We'd read that the hotel was family run and wanted to book somewhere with a bit of atmosphere. Arriving on the 1st of August we knew it was likely to be a busy period but that didn't worry us. As it happens the resort was lovely and lively. The Altinkaya resort was located really close by to a range of restaurants which we loved.... more

The cleaners as lovely as they were, need to be equipped with some decent cleaning products. The bathroom was filthy when we arrived and looked no different after the cleaners had been.

We stayed at The Altinkaya fro 2 weeks from the 2nd October , the staff were the friendliest we have come across for some time. Nothing was too much trouble or them, from the very first thing on a morning to the last thing at night they always had a smile.

The staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good and the location is very convenient for Girne and the surrounding villages. The building is around 10 years old and the bathrooms in particular are urgently due for a makeover. The double beds are very small! King size ones would make the stay more comfortable. If you value peace and quiet you may want to ask for a room at the back of the building away from the main road and the pool - and the view from the back towards the mountains... more

Just had a week in a bungalow at Altinkaya, very comfortable and clean. Breakfasts provided at the hotel were excellent, varied and very fresh. We also decided to eat there most nights, on a la carte service and were very happy with the food served. Most pleasing of all was the attitude and service of the staff which was first class.

OK, 1st things first. You will find many differing views on this hotel and the reason is that there is a varied range of acom types. I'm going to try and explain what you've got. The resort is split across 2 sites, pretty much opposite sides of the main road to Bellapais. The 'main' site consists of single storey bunglaows (located on your left as you enter the grounds), these are pretty decent. As you walk past these you will come to the Hotel reception. This block consists of 2 levels of hotel... more

What a fantastic time we had. The hotel was lovely, set in beautiful gardens and the pool was amazing. We did have a couple of minor problems with the room which were sorted out extremely quickly and professionally.

Probably more suited to couples and older people. Opposite is another square pool area with appartments surrounding it, probably best for families.

The room was immaculately clean and we had a big balcony overlooking the mountains. The hotel staff were extremely helpful; they always provided service with a smile.

The Altinkaya has a range of accommodations available; you can chose from a bungalow, a villa or a single hotel room. I chose a single room, and I was very impressed with it. The price you pay will depend on the type of accommodation that you chose, and a room is the cheapest option. But it was very good value for money in Northern Cyprus. The room was clean, tidy and very comfortable which I was not expecting because I had read a lot of negative reviews about this type of room. My stay came with... more

We stayed at the Altinkaya Holiday Village for a week recently and were given one of the studio rooms across from the main hotel. We found these to be quite nice and we were very pleased with the accommodations. There are 12 of these apartments situated around a pool, which was very peaceful and more or less out of the way of the majority of the guests, as most stay in the main hotel.We were less pleased with the quality of the food. Breakfasts were okay, but I was quite disappointed in the dinners.... more

Third visit to Northern Cyprus and I wasn't thrilled with this hotel. We arrived late in the evening and were shown to a room that wasn't very clean. The furniture and fixtures were stained and had a build-up of old grime that caused me to question our decision to stay here. I asked for a different room and we were shown to one only slightly less grimy. I still wasn't happy but it was very late so we made the best of it for one night. The next morning I expressed my discontent with the accommodations... more

We enjoyed our stay, we thought the staff were very helpful and polite. The downfall was that our accomodation was very dated, we never looked forward to going back to our bungalow. The shower had a mind of it's own (whether to run hot or cold) and the furniture had definately seen better day's. Apparantly the only nice re-furbed bungalows are at the left of the villiage as you go in, so may be a good idea to request one of those. We will go back as the food was very nice, well presented and clean,... more

I chose to stay in the Altinkaya on my second visit to North Cyprus and did not regret it at all. I stayed for one week and enjoyed the friendly and very hospitable atmosphere the hotel staff engendered. Most Guests seem to be on first name terms with each other and their hosts rather more quickly that one would find in other hotels. The food is of a good standard but basic so don't expect 4* or 5* variety. The Duplexes have been renovated and are of a good quality. The hotel and rooms are clean,... more

The Altinkaya Holiday Village offers cheap and cheerful accommodation, but how cheerful depends on whether you choose a hotel room, a villa and a bungalow. I opted for the hotel, and judging from other guest's comments, I got the best deal. My room was clean, airy and perfectly acceptable for the price. Bungalows can be cramped and scruffy, apparently, unless you get one in the left hand block which have just been renovated.I stayed B&B, and breakfast was plentiful if not exciting, and the two meals... more

We booked a bungalow at the Altinkaya Holiday Village for one week, and were disappointed to find it was in dire need of renovation.
