“Low Price, good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Manolya Hotel is central located on the coast of Lapta, Northern Cyprus, not far from Kyrenia (Girne).
Please take in consideration that this is a low budget hotel; but a real 3*** tourist hotel.
The hotel just went through a major renovation that was in it's last fase.
We had a nice room, spacy and comfortable. Minibar, seaview, brand new beds, good shower and balcony.
Breakfast choice: 2 types of cheese, 2 types of meat, 4 types of marmelade, bread, cakes, cornflakes and 3 types of eggs. Good choice for a budget hotel.
Hotel directly on the seaside, large swimming pool and sitting area inside and outside.
Worth to go here when you are looking for an inexpensive holiday.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We stayed 2 weeks in October and were disappointed with the status.
Makeover is obviously in progress but nowhere near complete. e.g. Our bathroom had a new shower and tiles but gaps allowed water to flood the floor. Extractor fan missing; hole filled with towel. Breakfast buffet limited and rarely changing. Fortunately we were on B&B so enjoyed various neighbouring restaurants at night. Their claim to have a beach was false, unless this includes concrete covered boulders. (see photo).
Staff were always pleasant

As we explain you while your here some rooms was not finish fully, becouse we was allowed only from November to April to done a ranovation, we offer to give you another room, but you said you happy with it and not want to change it. becouse the nice view.

We serve 3 types of egg's and some vegatable, 5 types of jam, 3 types of cheese, tomato/cucumber, yougurt, 3 kind of olives, 2 types of meat, 2 types of cornfleks, butter, bread, cake, fruite, 2 type fruite juice, tea and coffe... and yes we serve all same thinks everyday.

The photo you put and show the concrete covered boulders is not belongs to us it is belongs to our municipality and we already record them to fix it. becouse some our guest like to use this part.
But as you know we have large platform which is enough for all our guest.

Once more thank you very much for your time and review this will help us to improve our service's

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your review, all the reviews very important for us becouse they help us to improve our service's for our dear guest's.
But we have a few question about your review first at of all we can see you are living in Northern Cyprus on your country side and you write that you staying July 2012, Unfortuantly we was fully booked from June 2012 till October 2012 and we not book any room someone from Northern Cyprus, and when we check our records we don't have anyone who come and stay with us from Northern Cyprus.
Second think is when we check your other reviews which you have one more review, which is you are very happy with your stay, but you sepcify while you stay other hotel which is just next door, you book also our hotel for one night.
and Last think we have difficulty to understand is that you report you stay only one night with us but you think breakfast was same everyday!!!!

Once more thank you very much for your time and your review, we will consider your review and it will help us to improve our service's

First of all, this hotel doesn't have private beach, and ''piece of the beach'' between rocks next to the hotelis far not the best place on the coast. All possible hotel's advantages are vanishing infront of one simple but important thing-standards of cleaniness which are missing at all. When during check in I pointed to the staff the filth(!) and hairs on the room's floor, the answer i got was: ''well,the room was cleaned recently''. I had to INSIST to get that mess to be cleaned! It would be a really long list to mention everything, so just one more thing showing that problem is not in the ''floor cleaning lady''- served for breakfast cutted tomatoes was with a whole pieces of black filth on it,means they wasn't washed at all. This hotel could be a good place, but i left from there feeling disgusted.

Dear Madam or Sir,
First at of all we would like to thank you for your review. We can see from your review you stay in February at our hotel but post the review in July.
and During November 2011 till May2012, We was on renovation and that s why we sale cheaper price for this period. becouse during renovation it was not easy for us to keep everyting perfectly clean, but during this period we do our best.
We share the same bay with another hotel which is close last 5 years and we have our private platform for sun bed by the sea and private pool, Yes sea is not belongs to us but as we know this is same all over the world.
Once more thank you very much for your time and review this will help us to improve our service's

My husband and I stayed at the Manolya Hotel for one night and that was enough!. There are lots of renovation work going on and the surrounding area looks like a building site. Our bathroom was tiny, and in desparate need of a make over and deep clean. The beds were comfortable but the sheets seemed too small for the beds. My pillow was dirty - ugh! The balcony was very small and only suitable for 2 chairs. The restuarant was bright and airy but although renovated, there was a poor level of attention to detail in the decoration. The food however was good and plentiful. The staff (and there were lots of them) seemed friendly and attentive. The hotel is in a lovely location with the swimming pool next to the sea - a bit more proper renovation work and a clean up of the outside areas and repainting of the outside of the hotel would make it a more welcoming place to stay.

My first night in Cyprus I didn't sleep coz I could hear a baby crying almost the whole night true the tin walls. You can hear every word when people talk in the hallway. We changed rooms and that had a horrible tobacco smell and de sink was leaking so we had a wet floor when visiting the badroom/toilet. The Hotel had NO SMOKING announcement but you can smoke in all rooms. After taking a shower my partner had to wait some time for the water to go true the drain. Sheets with spots and a pillow with hard knobs, bring your own if want to have a good night rest. Not clean and never been vacuumed in those 8 days. We found 1 big cockroach in the room. Rooms need a renovation very soon.
Breakfast Buffet is everyday the same stuff with no fruits and powder coffee.
Dinner Buffet (no buffet) = 1 soup, 1 fish or meat a day (not both daily) and 1 vegetable that will be put on your plate, so nothing to choose. This will cost you about € 34 with drinks.
My advice: Go to the centre and eat what ever you like and better on a terrace or choose for a 4/5 star Hotel if you want to eat inn.
Double check the information if you going on a trip coz they don’t know much about local activities in the aria’s, we spent 40 lira just for back and forth with the dolmus coz of the bad information loosing a day.

Room Tip: Choose for a 4/5 star Hotel if you want to eat inn or check other restaurants in de aria. Plenty ava...
