“Staying at the Riverside Holiday Village”

My family and I have just returned from our third stay at the Riverside Holiday Village in Kyrenia in North Cyprus. We have been really pleased with the hotel every time we've visited, which is the main reason for our continued custom. Riverside is a family owned-and-run hotel, and so whilst it lacks some of the mod-cons of larger complexes, it also has a friendlier more personal feel to it.

The hotel itself, along with its facilities are fairly standard. The 'basic' rooms are fairly aptly named and contain little more than the bare minimum you'd expect in a hotel room, although to be fair they are very clean and well looked after. The 'superior' rooms are slightly more extravagant and worth the extra money if you can afford to pay for one. In any case, the televisions only pick up Turkish television so don't expect anything fancy in the way of broadcasting.

The restaurant serves a brilliant selection of (mainly Turkish) foods in the evening, and comes highly recommended. Eating in the hotel at lunchtimes, however, is probably ill-advised as the prices are a bit steep. Our advice would be to opt for eating out at lunch, because most of the supermakets in the surrounding area are hideously overpriced (although there are refrigerators in the rooms if you wish to buy your own foods).

The town nearby has some reasonably good entertainment in the evenings, including usual karaoke nights and happy hours. If you want to go further afield (into Kyrenia itself) there are regular buses that stop nearby throughout the day and most of the night.

If you do want to visit the Riverside Holiday Village we would suggest contacting the manager directly, who is usually only too happy to arrange transfers to and from the airport for you as a package with the payment for your rooms.

Liked — free transfer to airport
Disliked — prices were a tad steep
