“Palm Beach Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

It is five star hotel, rooms are really good, but this 5 star is to much for this kind hotel. Localization of hotel is perfect because hotel has own beach, so when you look out the window you can feel very relaxing.

My wife & I spent 3 days over Christmas at this fabulous hotel.
The staff were like one big happy family and obviouly enjoyed their work.
We felt that the staff were treated well by the owners,and that this was mirrored in the
attentive & friendly manner the staff approached the customers.
Meals were buffet-a vast array of high class cuisine which was well presented with many
choices both main course and sweets.
Bedroom,with balcony overlooking the sea was very comfortable and quiet.
We each had a massage,delivered by Canadian born Turkish Cypriot masseuse.
She was extremely friendly and we both thoroughly enjoyed our massages,feeling so relaxed afterwards
Alas,our 3 days was soon up and it was time to book out.This was dealt with promptly & efficiently.
Indeed all staff seemed so professional.
Would have no qualms about recommending this hotel.We reckon it is one of the best hotels we have stayed in on our travels around the world.
Will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view.

I simply cannot recommend this hotel enough! Located in North Cyprus I believe this is one of the less well visited parts of this absolutely beautiful Eastern Meditteranean island, yet there are many reasons to visit including the beautiful Kyrenia, nearby Salamis and the fantastic Venetian walled old city of Famagusta itself. Absolutely gorgeous weather, an incredible amount of interesting history and delicious, excellent food-what more do you want? The hotel offers wonderful spa facilities, including sauna, steam room, swimming pool and massage-with the sauna/steam room and pool included in the price! The food at both breakfast and evening meal was always outstanding and both varied and interesting and the level of service throughout the hotel would put many 5 star hotels to shame-it was simply consistently, totally faultless throughout an 8 day stay! Having stayed there in January the weather was (by UK standards) warm, sunny and reliably enjoyable every day! The hotel has a fantastic beach front location and rooms have balcony and sea views! I just cannot fault this hotel at all-our stay was easily one of the most enjoyable holiday experiences my wife and I have had! For a relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings-it is simply unbeatable!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach were excellent and not particularly expensive.

Stayed here many years ago and apart from its location it was a very run of the mill hotel with nothing of note to stand out from the other hotels around at the time, the old sectioned off area of Maras was more interesting.

However since its closure for refurbishment and opening last year it is a total transformation. It resembles nothing of its former self. Everything is quality, food rooms facilities and with a service to match. The surrounding area has also been developed and now has bars with live music and a Mardo ice cream parlour near by. Fantastic beach side location close to the Ghost town of Maras and the Famagusta walled city.
Would not hesitate to stay again.

Enjoyed a totally chilled out Christmas break at this fantastic hotel. We arrived around lunchtime on Christmas Eve for a two night stay (Christmas Eve Package). We were made very welcome from the minute we stepped into reception. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff were very attentive and could not do enough for you.
Our room had a fantastic sea view, loved the fluffy dressing gowns and slippers!
The buffet meals were exceptionally laid out, well prepared and a good selection.
The Gym, indoor pool and spa looked amazing, didn't use them, too chilled out!

Christmas day we walked to the walled city of Famagusta, this is a must for all visitors, lots to see and plenty of bars and restaurants.

We will certainly be returnung to this hotel

Room Tip: Sea view is amazing

We used to stay at the Palm Beach Hotel before it closed for renovation - what a difference we found on our arrival in late November. All staff were immaculate in dress and soooooo helpful, greeting us with a smile on every occasion. We have to made a special mention of Idris (customer relations) for his quiet, patient and helpful manner. We had a few issues (some our own making) he was there quickly to solve them and always gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. The reception staff were very helpful and always with a smile. The restaurant is now Buffett style - Wonderfully presented with great choices at all meals, again the staff are lovely, very attentive. The rooms are beautifully decorated with the bathrooms being quite sumptuous, some rooms have larger balconies. The lounge bar area is relaxing and our Thanks to Guldane for looking after us each evening. The position of the hotel is one of the best in North Cyprus, right on a beautiful beach and a short stroll to the lovely walled city. We flew home on November 29th after a really relaxing and enjoyable stay at Palm Beach we will definitely return next year.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are around the corner from the beach front but still with a sea view. Balconies tend t...

Have just returned from a 3 night suprise stay here. Every member of staff had a smile, were very helpful and friendly. Service was excellent as was the food. Colour scheme of rooms was soothing with the most comfy of beds. Fluffy dressing gowns and slippers, the Molten Brown shower wash, lotions and potions a girls delight. Sea view recommended to wake up to the beautiful sunrise of a new day, to watch the wonderful sunsets of a fulfilled day (walking around the old walled city of Famagusta where time stands still) enjoying a GnT on the balcony. Definately a return trip next year.
