Well I'm so happy that I continued with my booking to riverside despite some negative comments. Myself and my 9 year old granddaughter have just returned home after a lovely week. We arrived late at night and were very tired but there was food waiting for us which was nice. What we woke to in the morning was simply beautiful.... More

Just back from a cheap week here (£333 with Cyprus Paradise) This is a very good hotel/villa complex that has magnificent grounds, three good swimming pools (including a fabulous adult pool) and the best customer relations I have experienced - and I've stayed in some fabulous 5* hotels. As others have said, if you aren't satisfied with your accommodation the... More

We we're two girls from Norway who stayed at Riverside Premium Hotel (the new part of Riverside Garden Resort). The hotel is lovely with all its flowers, trees & a nice atmosphere. We perceived the staff as kind & helpful. The waiters at the two different restaurants at the hotel were also good. Our hotel room consisted of two beds,... More

Journey to northern Cyprus is a pain, sitting in Turkey for at least 45 mins while the status of the flight changes from international to internal, however if you have a good book it's bearable. The hotel prepared food for us even though we did not arrive much before midnight. We were allocated a room in the new build apartments... More

Nice hotel-village. Rooms are ok. 3 different pools, for 3 different moods... The breakfast is very 'turkish'... We didn't mind, but some might. The a la carte restaurant makes good, simple food... Definitely good, but not the most authentic cypriot... All-in-all, I wouldn't hesitate coming back...

Booked two rooms and on arrival realised not too good, but as late decided to wait until the morning! On closer inspection in the morning the two villas were completely different, although next door to one another! We unfortunately had the worst - the bathroom looked as though it was from the 60s and had a leaking sink, toilet that... More

This resort is a combination of apartments, villas and a hotel. I stayed in the hotel part on a half board basis. The room was adequate with plenty of storage space, in fact there was probably enough room for her to empty her handbag. But why did they take up so much space with oversized furniture. 2 seats with a... More

We have just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel booked via TravelZoo. We flew from Stansted (those who are - please note they only have a very small Boots chemist which had sold out of a lot of things including Sturgeon travel sickness pills). The restaurant had been kept open for our late arrival, and reception was not... More

My husband and I - as many other fellow travellers during our stay - booked this deal very cheap early in 2014 via Travelzoo. As others mentioned, the flight is very long in very squashed conditions on Onurair. My husband is 6"4 and I am 5"6 and we hardly managed to get our legs between the seats. Landing in Antalya...
