Always have to be careful about writing a negative report as people do complain for complaining sake at times. Read other reviews on here and did expect much better tbh.
The room was adequate with a poor shower but rather impressively cleaned every day.Also as half boarders the food was ok plentiful and nutritious especially the salads-however the breakfast was identical every single day eg melon was the only fruit in a fortnight. One did feel after a week of repition bored with the food.
Furthermore the first week of our stay there was a general lack of cleanliness around the restaurant with tables not been cleaned all day and plates and glasses round the pool not cleared for days. The second week was much improved however.
Apparently Club Simena is the oldest accomodation in north Cyprus and it did show to be fair. Fridges in rooms were dirty and there was a dated feel to the accomodation. We asked for smelly bins to be shut twice and a dirty mattress sat outside our daughters room for 8 nights despite requesting it be moved twice.
The pool area was generally pretty clean the pool big enough for a good swim but please note the slides are turned off for a couple of hours mid afternoon and at 5pm so are only on for approx 3 hours a day.
The location is quite a way out of Girne(Kyrenia) which necessitates car hire the dolmus(bus) stops outside too.
In essence Club Simena is ok most staff are helpful and the food is good but limited. Talking to other guests most had problems witnh A/C and plumbing issues-one mature couple been moved 4 times.
General consensus is the hotel is adequate with limitations inc. location what lets it down is the number of guests and its dated features.
Swcond week there was 3 loud weddings back to back fri sat and sun.Preparations began 4 pm ish and we felt pushed out for staff to prepare.The music was loud fair enough one or even two but 3 nights back to back was offside imo.
Finally the golf course it advertised had no balls when we asked for one we were told we should have brought our own! The pool table was broke and showed no signs of been repaired the Table tennis had bats but again no Ping pong balls and the table football you guessed was broke..it felt like Butlins in the sun!
Anyway would i stop again? Probably not.....
