There are lots of goods things to say about this hotel: location is perfect, the rooms are rather nice, with huge comfy beds, the pool area is amazing, with soft double sunbeds and big, fancy swimming pool. However, even if it's very tempting, don't waste your money on cocktails, they're incredibly bad. Breakfast is really Huge, probably the biggest I've ever seen, and with rather good quality (stay away from the pastries though, they're awful).

Service is not surprisingly below average, cold and impersonal, and staff has very poor english skills.

However, even if the hotel looks very nice overall, scratching the surface reveals a badly maintained hotel (very approximate paint job on the walls, dust in the bathroom, to name a few details), with rather cheap materials and furniture. At 150€/night i still find this is a rather good value for Kyrenia, but it's nowhere near a 5* hotel as stated on Tripadvisor.

Just stayed 1 night at the Rocks, it was lovely. Rooms not as good as expected, nice and clean but more like a 4*.
The thing that really let this hotel down was the pool staff, very rude and ignored English, was actually told to 'wait' when asking for a drink which we had already been waiting 30mins. This is a shame as the pool area is exceptional and made the whole stay outstanding.
The la Carte restaurant was superb with very a friendly helpful waiter. The prices are reasonable, very good value. I was expecting this to be overpriced but it certainly wasn’t.
A lovely hotel just needs some staff training in the pool area! Will go back

What a disappointment. Northern Cyprus has the potential to be a fabulous destination but is let down ( like so many other places) by the abundance of rubbish everywhere, the dirty streets, the abundance of derelict or unfinished buildings. Anyhow some good bits.
The Rocks Hotel is a very well presented place to stay with big comfortable bedrooms, large public rooms; very attentive & helpful staff in all departments. The hotel also has a smallish pool area with loungers & umbrellas & a decked area by the deep & clean sea. There are three restaurants ( two @ extra cost with no allowance for your half board booking ) The main buffet had reasonable choice but was very repetitive, the cost of drinks very expensive in the hotel & by the pool ( £8 for a gin & tonic ) The Taxis were cheap & comfortable Mercs, the drivers chirpy & helpful, but all the destinations we visited were run down just like Girne itself. Apart from the abundance of smokey casinos there was nothing else to see or do unless you like looking at shop after shop of fake handbags & watches.
So not the hotels fault perhaps, but not for us.

Room Tip: don't open the windows / curtains, then you won't see the rubbish in the car park

The hotel is located on the waterfront 5 min walk from the harbour and is well presented. The rooms are pretty average, not quite 5 star but the wifi in rooms and other facilities are as expected. Where this hotel really excels is the pool area and food. The pool area also leads to the sea for swimmin, towels provided and a large enough area to fulfil Oct guest levels, might struggle in peak. Towels are providd which is an added bonus! The service is what I would call 'island service' by that I mean so payed back its horizontal, if you're in a rush this is not the place to come (I found all the restaurants like this tho- it's an island thing!) the food menu is not too extensive but very well priced (i was expecting high prices due to the 5*) actually cheaper than some but better quality. I had the crab claws (13tl) and burrito (20tl) both exceptional. The casino is small and the lower end tables are predictably busy. Slots are Vegas style (bit boring for me!) oh and everything is in US dollars which I wasn't expecting. Overall I think this hotel just about scrapes into the 5* based on the food but rooms could be more special and service a little quicker!

We have just returned from a wek at the Rocks and certainly enjoyed our stay. The Rocks is ideally situated on level walk to the Harbour. The welcome was excellent and the room spacious and well appointed. The buffett was the best we've ever experienced. Staff helpful. Pool area excellent.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor at the side of the hotel. Very quiet even though over the main entr...

This hotel is overlooking the sea and is made up by three buildings adjoining each other. This hotel was booked for us by The Colony Hotel as they were full and was to be for my family. The suite overlooked the sea and pool area and was real luxury. The large lounge bathroom and bedroom were just excellent. Service was faultless and the breakfast was extensive with everything that you could wish for. So far just wonderful. Now for the niggly bits. The pool area could only be accessed by crossing the busy one way street. The noise we found obtrusive especially from the lads with their big bore exhausts and thumping music which seemed to be going round the one way system once too often. We were then charged to enter the pool area only to be offered sun buds of a standard only to be found in a one star hotel. Not good. The supply of towels were plentiful. The waiter service was non existent round the pool although they did bring the drinks to us once we had gone to the pool bar to order. The pool area was not particularly clean with debris floating round the edge of the filter grills. The stench of cigarettes came from the numerous ashtrays which were all in need of emptying and a particular point had to be made to the staff to have them removed and emptied.
The fresh water pool area leading down to the sea water area was lovely.
Finally, we have no problem with a charge being made for this facility but the management should ensure that if 5 star charges are made the quality of 5 star should be maintained through out the hotel which includes the pool area.

Room Tip: All rooms will be good. We did not use the Spa and therefor not rated. If the pool area is sorted o...
