We've just returned from a break at the Malpas which we booked with gonorthcyprus for the third time. Every time we visit this hotel it seems to have improved, it was already very good but is now even better and we will always return. The hotel is clean and well kept, we had a very nice, spacious room that was finished to a high standard. Location wise, the hotel is somewhat out of the way in a pleasant, peaceful area. However it's only a short drive to some lovely beaches and into town. Wonderful... more

Just returned from a short break at the Malpas, it was our first time staying in North Cyprus so we booked with GoNorthCyprus as they are well known as experts in the area. Gary was very helpful in giving us all the information we needed to make a choice and the Malpas seemed an ideal mid-range hotel. We found the staff very welcoming if a little inexperienced with their English and our room was comfortable. We were really pleased by the nice Hammam and warm pool. The food was adequate but not great,... more

We had been to the Malpas before so had no hesitation visiting again, Gary at Go North Cyprus gave us a great deal and even offered to send us driving directions from our home in Protaras.The food is just as good as ever, the out door pool uncrowded and the rooms clean and comfy as we live on the Island we had our car with us , which was handy as there is not much within walking distance ( though they do offer a Shuttle bus into Kyrenia), we headed east and on the new road found ourselves at the... more

Malpas Hotel had everything we wanted from our holiday, including great views, an excellent choice of food, a good location and a taste of luxury. It is only a short drive away from Kyrenia, and the GoNorthCyprus hotel runs a free shuttle bus there once a day, so we got to explore the harbour town whenever we wanted. It is also a short drive from the pretty village of Catalkoy where we experienced a real taste of authentic Cypriot life. Other than that, we didn't need to leave the resort, as it... more

My wife and I, plus a friend, recently spent three nights at the Malpas Hotel.I am recovering from a hip replacement, so mobility was an issue. The staff however always provided a buggy to take me from the main hotel to the Diamond Court annex, and back whenever needed.The manager also moved me to a room for the disabled, which made life so much easier with a walk-in shower, disabled person supports etc.The outside pool and the private beach were a challenge, but again helpful and supportive staff... more

This is my third visit to the Malpas and I always look forward to the facilities, food and relaxing pace of this resort. Unfortunately I arrived at the time of major renovations and outdoor excavation. Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful I did find the constant digging and rock breaker annoying. I suggest that the hotel website indicates if construction is taking place and allowing guests to decide if they wish for their relaxing holiday to be disrupted by excessive noise.... more

We found the best prices for our winter holiday through Go North Cyprus, who booked us in at the Malpas Hotel for a week in February. We found the hotel pleasant and finished to a high standard, with a good variety of buffet food served at mealtimes. The hotel operates a shuttle bus into Kyrenia, which we took a few times to visit the lovely harbour here and have a poke around the shops. There's also a hotel-run bus down to the beach, where there's a fantastic fish and seafood restaurant. The hotel... more

We Spent an amazing week at the Malpas Hotel, Kyrenia unspoilt northern Cyprus. We booked through gonorthcyprus.com and they were great on the phone when I rang up with a few questions. We chose to go now (feb) due to work commitments - you can't have it all ways I guess!We went half board and the food was superb. You pay for all drinks but they weren't expensive at all.

I liked this hotel very much. The package deal was inexpensive but the quality excellent. I liked the room, the staff, and the food. We went twice to the associated sea front fish restaurant which is simply not to be missed! I liked the gym, sauna, turkish baths, pool, etc. We will certainly return.The sea view rooms are worth the extra cost; cooked to order omelettes are an especially attractive feature of the lavish breakfast spread; the included buffet style dinners were more than adequate... more

We arrived after a drive up from Paphos on Friday to find the request for a room close to our friends' room had been carried out - next door, excellent. Friendly and attentive staff in a light and airy Reception area was our first impression and things just stayed like that until we left after the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, either in the restaurant (nearly), in the bar or by the pool - the pool needs a big mention.

I arrived on the 18 February for a 6 week stay, really looking forward to some sunshine but was slightly taken aback by how cold it was. My first day in Kyrenia was actually a snowy scene from Alice in Wonderland. It was the first time ever that I experienced sitting in my hotel room looking out across the Med Sea towards Turkey whilst it was snowing!

My husband and I got a very good deal for a winter break to North Cyprus via GoNorthCyprus.com. The agent, Gary, was very helpful. We booked the Malpas Hotel because it seemed to have good reviews and as it was a five star we were hoping for a bit of luxury.In all honesty we were a bit disappointed with the Malpas. It didn't live up to our expectations of what a five star hotel should be like. It had plenty of facilities and the casino was a popular choice with guests but it lacked that attention... more

My wife and I took advantage of a last minute deal we found at Go North Cyprus. We booked the Malpas Hotel through Mandy, who described the hotel as a relaxing retreat. I completely agree with her! Set slightly back from the town, the Malpas has beautiful grounds and is really quiet and peaceful. We had an apartment which was separate to the hotel which meant that it was even quieter.Our apartment was clean and spacious and although the furniture wasn't brand new, it was well decorated and comfortable.... more

We visited the Malpas twice this year, which whilst shamelessly indulgent of us given the current economic situation and all, was definitely worth doing. We're not in the habit of taking multiple holidays in a year (sometimes not even one) but a pay rise coupled with some unexpected free time made this the perfect opportunity and we were so impressed by our first stay that it became a bit of a no brainer.Getting from our rooms to the main hotel and bar area necessitated a walk up a relatively steep... more

Very nice hotel with friendly extremely helpful staff. Evening buffet a little samey but a good standard. Pleased to say the shuttle bus frequency into town was improved as it was only once a day and the hotel itself was situated in a quiet area. No real alternative eating places within comfortable walking distance. The main bar had live music each night which left little other options to sit and have a chat and drink. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room but a fully stocked mini... more

This was our first visit to the Malpas, after many stays at the Colony. We decided to change, to compare and sample something different in the five star category. However, apart from the super sized and well equiped rooms and a good selection in the restaurant at both breakfast and dinner, it was let down by inconsistent, sometimes indifferent service. Back to the Colony for us, but for a family holiday, with good size pools, I expect it would be ideal.... more

Having been to North Cyprus on more than 30 occasions we are used to their slight exaggerations but to class this hotel as 5 star is extreme - 3 star at best and whislt they cannot control the type of guests they receive, by offering "good deals" they will be inundated with the type of person that should really be holidaying in the likes of Benidorm.

A good moan is one of the defining characteristics of the British, particularly those from Larnaca who try and pop over to the bright side of the island for a few cheap, really unaffordable days, in a 5* Hotel. If you can't afford the prices, stay away!

I'm not a lover of buffets but they did a varied selection every day and always there was a chef available to cook your breakfast eggs or steaks, kebabs or fish for dinner.Swimming pool was very clean with helpful staff to sort out towels, umbrellas, food and drinks. Overall staff were very helpful.First thing I did when I returned was look at rates for another... more

Malpas Hotel – I would not stay again and would not recommend it friends. Not 5 star.As a sixtieth birthday treat for my wife, we wanted to go 5 star, our room was nice with fantastic views from balcony. However we were located directly over the Jazz bar. On our 10th night they had a Salsa Jam in the bar, due to the noise level and particularly the bass beat (the mirror wardrobe doors were vibrating in time to music) that woke me up at midnight, it was impossible to sleep until after 04.35 hours... more

We stayed at the Malpas Hotel Catalkoy.The hotel lives up to its 5 star rating in all respects with the exception of the evening meal, whilst the food is presented well there is a lack of variety, although I am looking at this with English eyes so this is just my opinion.In the main the hotel is very good, the facilities, pool, bar, rooms etc are excellent, although the alchoholic drinks are very expensive, the equivalent of about £8 a pint of local lager, wine is approx £4 a glass with spirits... more

A great five star hotel, offering well appointed rooms, its public facilities were also very good and dining was great (food is buffet style). My wife and I stayed in an annex room, surrounded by a beautiful garden with fantastic sea and mountain views. Car parking was plentiful (due to the lack of public transport we would recommend hiring a car).The hotel swimming pools provided plenty of space to relax in and were well attended by staff whose aim was to help; this was complemented by a casual... more

We stayed here after I got a great deal on the internet.The rooms were very clean,food was good,and pool is wonderful!A good location if you want to visit Turtle Beach,as its outside Kyrenia.I would book this hotel every time if we went back again.It was a bit of a walk to the main hotel but the rooms were bigger in the annex so I didnt complain!Staff always happy to help with any queries.Hire care through hotel was great!A brand new one!(Pacific)... more

on arrival, we were informed that the hotel was overbooked but there would be a room available the next day. arrangements had been made for us to stay overnight at a nearby hotel and we were assured that it was of the same standard. It was not, for although the pool area was pleasant, the restaurant area was tired and dingy, and the accommodation had a very small bathroom with only just enough room for a sink, lavatory and shower, and badly needed to be updated and decorated. we were offered the... more

Lovely hotel and adequate parking, we arrived and was taken to our room by a very helpful man from reception.We have relations who live in North Cyprus and would definately stay at the hotel again. If I could state what we didn't like it would be that the pool was too cold and that we would have liked a public telephone as the telephone calls in the room were expensive... even though we were phoning a number in North Cyprus. The food was good and a good choice.... more

we stayed at the Malpas Hotel for 10 days in April, the food and service was excellent, in particular the young guy who takes care of the pool, chairs etc, the reception was always helpful and the rooms are immaculate, we was speaking to another guest who had used the treatment area ands she was very disappointed as to the working order of a lot of the equipment and complained about the pool being cold on several occasions, i think our main observation is that the drinks are very much overpriced,... more

Arrived and was located a room overlooking the car-park, asked if this could be changed and was told that if we could sit and have a drink another room would be prepared for us. We returned an hour later to be told by another receptionist very aggresively that there were no other rooms available. Having waited an hour after a long journey we were not happy. A room was found in the annexe which was fine but more inconvenient for the spa and gym facilities which we were using twice a day. I felt... more

The Malpas is very well situated in a small village outside Kyrenia. This five star facility is everything I was expecting and more. The rooms, reception area, bars and restaurants are very well serviced and maintained to a high standard. I particularly enjoyed the pool area and the generous nature of staff to ensure that every detail from towels, to drinks, to umbrella were made available during the course of the day. My stay of 3 nights was most enjoyable with evening entertainment, a good... more

Firstly I tend to believe the hotel on the third floor issue (see other reviews) it was a full house while we stayed but the the top floor was out of action.Smart new well designed and furnished block. Great views of the sea. The cost of drinks is not out of place for a high end hotel (see other reviews £5 per glass, £25 bottle of wine). Food is buffet style, various bands during the week doing good cover versions of 60s classics.Outdoor pool is unheated, but lots of loungers and towels. Small... more

Lovely hotel, good food, good service but drinks so expensive. We spent more time out of the hotel in other nearby restaurants and bars where we could both eat and drink for the evening for less than the cost of 1 bottle of wine from the hotel.The facilities were excellent, the rooms were lovely and the standard of service was very good.As it was early in the season there was a little bit of cosmetic improvements being carried out. The small paddling pool was being tiled during the whole time we... more

I was due to go to North Cyprus with my husband and our 6 year old daughter. It was her first ever trip abroad so we wanted to make it as special as possible. We read the reviews about the Malpas Hotel and immediately thought that it was the right place to stay. About a week before our departure, I received a phone call and was told that unfortunately there had been some problems with flooding at the Malpas and it was best to transfer to another hotel. This came as such an utter shock to us; we'd... more

I booked a holiday with Cyprus Premier to stay for a week at the Malpas Hotel with family and friends this April. We chose the Malpas after a recommendation from friends who had visited, as well as the glowing reviews it received on this site and TripAdvisor. Everything was running smoothly and we were thoroughly looking forward to the holiday until two days before, when we received a phone call stating that we would have to move to another hotel. We were told that the third floor of the Malpas... more

My brother and I have just returned from the Malpas Hotel after travelling to Cyprus for a family wedding. We are originally from Cyprus ourselves but left as young children so we were very excited about a chance to get back to our roots. As it was a last minute booking we didnt have much time to look around for hotels so we made our booking on the recommendation of a family member. We arrived early in the morning and we immediately noticed how fantastic the sea views were. We were even more surprised... more

We enjoyed a post Xmas break at the Malpas Hotel, and very much enjoyed our stay, thanks to kind staff, a well-kept modern hotel and some very welcome sunshine. We knew from looking at the hotel's reviews in advance that it was out of town, so we hired a car at the airport (Ercan) and actually used it more than we originally thought. January is certainly not pool or beach weather, and a car meant we could explore more of North Cyprus, as the roads were virtually empty of other tourist traffic. Our... more

I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend last November. We booked a last minute luxury break and everything was a dream. The hotel is the nicest place I have ever stayed, truly 5-star. The rooms are HUGE with tasteful décor and luxurious touches such as the uplighters and the computer desk. We had a lovely balcony with breathtaking views of the mountains and glimpses of the sea. The marble bathroom was unbelievable, with his n' hers sinks and a separate bath and shower, and luxury toiletries. My... more

I have to recommend this hotel wholeheartedly for giving us a wonderful romantic break. The exclusive atmosphere, and beautiful rooms made every minute a pleasure. Although there were over 170 rooms, the hotel was so peaceful and hushed. The Spa was top notch with a Turkish bath, steam room and impressive fitness room. The Jacuzzi would have graced any top London hotel, and the restaurant was a wonderful culinary experience. There was even a cigar shop and a jewelers on site.You generally get what... more

We booked the Malpas Hotel for a week, and wished we had booked longer! Despite initial concerns that it might be more a casino than a hotel, we were impressed with the quality and cleanliness. The bathroom was clean and in good order, which can't be said of every hotel bathroom we've seen in North Cyprus. The friendly staff always made time to talk to us 'old folk', and the buffet food was excellent. We really didn't need our hire car, as we only drove into Kyrenia a couple of times for a meal,... more

My husband, I, and my two teenage boys stayed at Malpas Hotel for a week. This was not our first trip to Kyrenia. We stayed at other hotels, but found them lacking. We found the hotel to have some bad reviews, but the hotel was nothing like the reviews we read. Instead we were given a free upgrade on our first night. The food was always varied and very tasty. As a vegetarian I still found plenty to eat. Our lovely double room looked over the pool and sea. We also had a separate room for... more

We booked the Malpas as a five star hotel but were very disappointed when we arrived to discover building work in progress, which started early in the morning. We were woken up by the noise of the builders hammering and banging and shouting. Then the next night we were woken by others 'guests' returning to their rooms around 3am after a night in the casino, slamming doors, turning on their tvs loud, etc. After two interrupted nights and two mornings of builders noise, which continued all day, we... more

Took the kids to North Cyprus for a half term break last October, and chose the Malpas mainly for its heated indoor pool. Was really pleased to discover just how good the hotel was. Staff were very welcoming to my two 'little horrors'. Kids loved the pools which were linked by a bridge, and ate platefuls at the enormous buffet breakfasts. Hired a car for the week and glad I did - meant we could get out and explore beyond the hotel grounds. Kids enjoyed Buffavento castle, Kyrenia harbour (due to... more

I initially researched the hotel online and found some very positive and encouraging reviews, not to mention some extraordinary scenery pictures.

Stayed at the Malpas last September for a late holiday for me and my boyfriend. Had a sea view room which was fab, and we spent ages just sitting in the sunshine and drinking beers! Pool was big and empty when we were there; can't imagine it being too crowded even in summer. Drinks were expensive unless you had beer. Breakfast was great - loads to eat so you didn't need lunch. North Cyprus has lots to do, so long as you don't expect it to be 24/7 party like Aiya Napa or anything. We found some cool... more

The Malpas is a really great hotel if you just want to chill out and relax. I spent most of my summer break here soaking up the sun by the pool. Hubby spent most of the time in the shade with a cool beer 'resting his eyelids'! The Spa, Wellness and Beauty Centre was good, with a nice sauna (mixed, so take your towel), Turkish bath and steam room. Treatments were reasonably priced (seen cheaper, paid higher), and my classic full body massage very relaxing.Our room was comfortable and had a sea view,... more

My friend and I stayed at the Malpas Hotel in August. It was fantastic. We booked the hotel because another friend's parents recommended it for our trip to Cyprus. We stayed for 5 days, and did not have any problems. The view from the hotel was magnificent and the food at the breakfast buffet always warm. The beer was the only thing we could afford to drink and there was a small language barrier. The pool area was perfect for relaxing and getting a summer tan. We spent most of our time at... more

This hotel was perfect for our honeymoon. We had been before and vowed we would return for our honeymoon, and we did. The rooms are lovely and have air-conditioning which is great in the summer heat. The pool is a really nice area with plenty of sun loungers, and everyone who stayed there was very friendly. We met up with a few nice couples in the Jazz bar and there was some nice live music on Friday and Saturday nights there.The beaches are gorgeous here and the private beach belonging to the Hotel... more

Upon arriving, Catherine and I were shown our suite facing the sea. The view was striking with the pool, spa, and gardens below. I only stay in five star hotels and I found that the Malpas Hotel fit my expectations. The reception area was created with the best materials and lavish. The fitness centre had top line equipment, which was obviously kept in good shape. My girlfriend found the spa to be comfortable and relaxing. The meals were also served hot. They were adequate for our needs. ... more

The Malpas Hotel is rated at five stars, and my family and I believe it earned each star. The staff at the hotel was friendly, courteous, and the service fast. The food provided offered a range of dishes, which were always hot and tasty. My wife spent a day in the spa, while my daughter and I hung out by the pool. We also took walks along the beach to enjoy the sunshine. April was the perfect time to visit Kyrenia, because the weather was more often sunny rather than cool and rainy. We found... more

My husband and I visited North Cyprus to celebrate our retirement, and I can highly recommend both the town and the hotel. We splashed out on this hotel and it was worth every penny. The locality was brilliant, a short distance from Kyrenia town centre, but with gorgeous views. The hotel had everything we wanted and we felt quite spoiled. I loved the Spa. The pool area is lovely but was busy a couple of times when there was a wedding in the hotel. There was a nice jazz bar and the waiters were so... more

Last year was our 40 year wedding anniversary and so I decided to treat my husband to a trip abroad. We rarely get to go abroad these days as I am not too keen on flying and my husband has bouts of suffering with his arthritis. I'd always liked to visit Cyprus and my daughter had told me about the wonderful times she had when she visited a few years ago. A neighbour suggested the Malpas hotel as being one of the best around so with the help of my daughter I looked for deals on the internet. Initially... more

We have just returned from another wonderful holiday at the Malpas Hotel in Kyrenia. We had been last year, and I think it is even better this year. The staff are truly wonderful and make sure that everything is absolutely perfect for you. The hotel is impressive and from the moment you step into the huge marble-tiled lobby you know you are going to have a wonderful stay. Each room is bright and modern and the bathrooms are to die for!
