Stayed at Bellapais Monastery Village for a week, early February and rated the whole holiday very highly. The hotel is great. We had a room rather than chalet accommodation and, though it was a bit small, had everything we needed with a balcony at the front overlooking the football pitch but beyond that to Kyrenia harbour. I thought the steps, sloping walkways and different levels all added to the hotel's charm. Just shows, from other reviews, that one person's inconvenience is another's charming. All the staff were very helpful, breakfast was great, plenty of choice including full English; we had a couple of evening meals in the restaurant which were OK, nothing stunning but not bad. The indoor pool is disappointingly small, especially as I am a strong swimmer and it was too cold for the outdoor one. But the setting with the mountains as backdrop would make it a fantastic place to swim and chill out. Car hire was especially cheap: we walked down the hill to British Car Hire and got three days for £33, spending £35 on fuel. Don't know if it's any more expensive through the hotel but we were still able to leave the keys at reception for the vehicle to be picked up so didn't have to do the walk back up the hill after dropping it off. Don't miss Katara castle, or a visit to Kyrenia castle and the scenery along the peninsula is stunning. Bellpais village is not to be missed of course, either. We enjoyed some really easy, pleasant walks in fine, not too hot weather. Lovely. Definitely prefer North Cyprus to South and hope to be back again one day.
