Apart from the long flight, this is soon compensated by this lovely resort, The service was excellent, views spectacular, room serviced every day. The only criticism was being on half board the restaurant meals were pretty much same old.However do not let this put you off as eating else where is very reasonable. I would strongly suggest hiring a car... More

We have literally just arrived home from Riverside Gardens, 14 September, after having spent 7 lovely days at this resort. To be totally honest we travelled to the resort with a certain amount of trepidation given that we booked it very last minute. We booked on Friday and travelled on the Sunday. I read the reviews and we too had... More

Firstly, the flight from the UK plus stopover in Antalya, then onwards to Cyprus plus transfer time is a real pain. Factoring all that in you have 6 days left of your holiday, Families with young children and babies be warned. We arrived at 23:00, full marks for the organisation and staff, we were fed, watered, briefed (mealtimes would have... More

We too also went with a deal from Travelzoo. As we had not paid a lot for this holiday, we did not expect 4 star treatment. However it is advertised as 4 Star. I agree with all the previous reviews below in the last week anyway. So wont go on about them again except to say..... it is Turkish food,... More

Before me and my wife came here I had read a few little niggles, let's start with those first. The journey from the UK takes you to mainland Turkey where you have a change of flight crew, and the flight then becomes an internal Turkish flight, this is because international law regards the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus as occupied...

The hotel was scattered amongst beautiful gardens with a background of mountains, the room had been refurbished (not in the new block) and was very clean with comfortable beds.The swimming pools were adequate. The food was fine for soup and salad lovers,but my husband and friends were very disappointed that there were only two choices for the main course and... More

We booked this holiday from Travelzoo through Cyprus Paradise.We had been to Kyrenia in April of this year and stayed at the Malpas so we knew a little about the island.After a tedious flight landing in Antalya for 40 minutes before landing at Ercon we eventually arrived at the Hotel at 11pm.Surprisingly the Hotel had prepared a hot meal for...

If you go to Riverside expecting 4 star I'm afraid you are really really going to be disappointed its 2 star plus at a push and I think that's reflected in the price we paid £260 each for 7nights 6 days as your flight home is 6 30 am , so based on the price it's an ok place to... More
