“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

This hotel can be booked for a modest price, so expectations should be in line with that. It is not terrible, nor is it great. In fact, it seems to be struggling in many ways. The casino is closed and the beach jetty, while lovely, is tatty and in disrepair. Food is modest but tolerable -- lots of salads and mezze-type dishes but meat and fish dishes few and not great. Bar food (burger, tuna salad) not very good either. Entertainment quite poor, one evening consisted of youtube clips being projected onto a screen). The night manager is a rather grumpy chap, who really could use a hospitality industry refresher course. Small gestures like offering tired guests a free soft drink (drinks had to be paid for and sandwiches to replace the evening meal were only offered when requested) would make the start of the holiday far more welcoming, especially when arriving in the wee small hours of the morning. On the good side, the citrus groves and gardens of the hotel are lovely, and rooms are generously sized and clean. Likewise, it was quiet when we visited and there were very few people around the second, smaller pool. Very peaceful.

I notice two of the very positive reviews below end in '1661'. Interesting, given that they come on the heels of a rash of very bad reviews. Just an observation.

Room Tip: Book a refurbished room and avoid the bungalows.

I went to Lapethos with my wife and we randomly selected our hotel but it turned out that it was the best hotel in Lapta, we paid a reasonable money but the staff and the hotel itself gave us much more better service for the price we paid. The receptionists were really helpful and they manage to do our check-ins and check-outs in a very quick and professional way. The view of the hotel hosts both mountain view and sea view which gives hotel one more star. The food was delicious and the food range was really wide and we enjoyed every meal of it. The hotel is 15 minutes away from the city centre of Kyrenia which was great for us. I would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to visit in Kyrenia and in Lapta.

We had a lovely holiday staying at the Lepethos Hotel. We found it a long way out of Kyrenia but it didn't cause any problems as we just walked out of the hotel complex and caught the many minibuses along the strip. The dining room is situated with beautiful mountain views one side and the sea the other. You could sit where you liked. The buffet style meant you got pushed and elbowed about a bit but this was the guests fault. The food was plentiful but average.The bedroom was spacious and clean with good views of the mountains. Pity the balconies aren't slightly bigger but still very nice. Hotel does not cater for children out of season. Good access to sea/private jetty/sunloungers via underground tunnel. Hotel lounge has a good ambience, peaceful and quiet. We found this hotel good value.

I am glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Thanks for your positive review and for highlighting our beautiful views. As you say, there are regular minibus services into Kyrenia. It is also worth mentioning that the village centre of Lapta is within an easy walk. I hope you will come back again soon.

You can feel the real Turkish hospitality in this place. I really had a great time here. I travelled alone and had the chance to have a great time here and meet really nice people. Especially from top to the bottom the hotel staff is very kind and try to make the tourists' holiday good. The food is not perfect bu at this price they serve the maximum quality.

Room Tip: The elevator wasn't working. I stayed at the fisrt floor instead of the third floor. But itwas a...

We booked this holiday package just for a week of sun before the winter. We saved over £300 on the deal and found it good value for the money. The hotel was a bit far out of the main areas of Kyrenia, but with the Dolmus (shared taxi type service) as in Turkey we had no trouble getting out and about. We were dubious as I read some pretty awful reviews the week before we went, but were open minded and had good weather which always helps. Food in the hotel was plentiful, but not much choice meat wise. But when you see that the evening meal charge was 10 turkish lira you can understand why. They were doing their best on the budget. Not too much of a problem as there were lots of places to eat out reasonably priced.On the whole we enjoyed our week.

Room Tip: As it was end of season we didn't have any problem, but entertainment could be a bit noisy just...
