“Expensive wasted half-term week”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I just got back from this hotel which would be best discribed as a building site.No sea view room which we paid for,rooms were really smelly and eventually accepted the 4th one offered.Food was'nt great we both spent three days in the room suffering bad stomachs and the runs.Not a sun chair in sight so we resorted to use the indoor pool which we discovered was dirty and freezing none of the other guests would go there we reported and complained four times but nothing was done The final straw for us was when they tried to charge us for water (not bottled) with our dinner, the staff were admament we should pay for it so we ate our meals each eve without a drink .I certaintly would have not paid their rip off prices for a glass of wine. A company called Clever Hotels duped us into staying at this wonderful hotel (their photos look wonderful too) I would strongly advise anyone against staying at this holel and i agree with the other reviews about the shabby area and entrance to hotel.We left this hotel feeling that the staff and management were'nt remotely interested in anything we had to say, they more or less laughed behind our backs Avoid this placeat all costs.

This hotel is very nice, my room was spacious and clean. The TV was old but it had several channels in English and German. There is also free wifi in the rooms.
The staff at breakfast and at the towel station were very friendly. You can pick up towels near the pool and exchange them as often as you want for dry ones. Ideal!
The pool is big and beautiful and quiet, no music etc. There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. There is not a real sandy beach but the platform built in the sea is great for access to the crystal clear sea.

Officially you are not allowed to bring any food or drinks from outside into the hotel. Which is annoying as they charge you 7 lira for a glass of cola and they don't sell snacks like potato chips or cookies. Breakfast was good, a lot of choice and the area outside is really nice with a view of the sea.

The surroundings of the hotel are not pleasant. Decrepit buildings and stray dogs all around. This makes it unattractive to walk to the town. But the free shuttle goes 3 times a day and you can also get the dolmus back from town for only 2 lira.
There are a few nice restaurants and a big supermarket near the hotel.

Hotel Vuni Palace is nice 4 or 5 stars hotel with a great accommodation for swimming and relaxing. We stayed there for one week with breakfast. Normally I am not so font of All inclusive Hotels, but in this case breakfast was really nice. There are so may things to choose from at the buffet and there is a lovely roof terrace were you can enjoy your breakfast watching over the sea. The rooms are very large (we had two king-size beds for two persons), but for a five star hotel they need some adjustments (no flat screen and a leaking bad tub). The swimming pool is large and there are enough sunbeds at the bay to enjoy a relaxed vacation. In a 15-20 min walk you are in the city center of Kyrenia. In the area are different supermarkets and restaurants.

The hotel was just about what I expected. It is no way 5 stars but the stay there was enjoyable. There was some leak in the bathroom which was quite small and rusty and in bad need of adaptation. The food was not 5* but it was still nice. The pool is amazing. The staff is nice. The prices for the drinks are enormeous. But beware of the tricks in the all inclusive program - ice cream is only available between 3:30 and 4 p.m. :D

Not a 4/5 star hotel.
Hotel in need of refurbishment.
Food eatable but nearly always the same. Canteen style presentation food piled high on dishes that goes cool quickly.
Pool area clean and well kept.
Hotel situated in tatty area.
Staff service very mixed.
No public area for sitting outside in the evening after dinner.

Room Tip: Sea facing room top level floors

Recently returned from kyrenia and stayed at tha Vuni Palace .Not at all what we expected for a six year old hotel very run down and tatty .The swimming pool was lovely and clean and well looked after .Staff in the bar and the reception not at all sociable,not at all made to feel welcome.Food in the resturant ok not much of a choice and nearly always cold.Beach very poor only three couples used it in the two weeks we were there,becuse they couldnt get round the pool.Mainland Turkey we found much better 5 star accomadation ,better food and always made to feel welcome. .We went with Direct Traveller couldnt fault them wont hesitate to use them again.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room in the main hotel.
